  1. Thank you for the info. Which pic of mine shows the clip in the wrong position? I guess I need to get an assembly manual for the brakes so I can see exactly how that it's supposed to go together. I had no idea it was missing the back or plate
  2. Sure I'm up for trying just about anything. A couple of the other forums that I visit have done the same thing. I didn't realize there was a China connection in there. Kudos for breaking ties
  3. So I had a rattle on the front passenger side of my 71 Mach 1. To start with I took the front wheel off check to make sure all the suspension components were tight without any rattles. Looked at the brakes everything seemed fine. My hood I thought was a little bit loose so I tightened up the adjusters on the inside to take up any slack. Some of the rattle went away but I still had a rattle? Next I thought I might have a broken shock or coilover. A quick look and some quick testing by pushing down on the fender confirmed the shock and spring were fine. So I took it over to a buddy of mine to do
  4. I normally use Tapatalk to access the forum. The changes made have messed with that unfortunately do I can't use it any longer. Hopefully Tapatalk updates their side soon.

  6. The reading I did they prefered the clutch type because they're rebuildable. Is that just a selling point or is that a legit thing?
  7. The previous owner of my car put in the 350 gear set. why they didn't set it up with a locker type rear end while they had it apart is beyond me? Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  8. I talked to a friend of mine about doing this one. He suggested I take the axle out of the car and bring it over to his house to do it on the bench. He's got the tools in the setup to do this one.Yeah the thought of that axle housing falling and breaking arms legs etc doesn't sound fun. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  9. My 71 Mach 1 M code has a open diff rear end. I'm thinking about converting it to a positraction. Got the 9-in rear end in this one. Those one tire burnouts are kind of lame. Has anybody done it before and if so what's the difficulty on a 10 scale? What brand and type of posi did you install ? I'm looking at the Duragrip limited slip Trac loc Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  10. My experience with the factory solenoid was I replaced it and then was still had no start issues. The issue with mine ended up being the positive wire from the battery to the solenoid. It looked like brand new, connections were clean and it carried voltage. The problem ended up being the crimped eye where it connected to the solenoid. It had corrosion inside and wouldn't carry enough voltage and current under load of starting the 351C. 10 bucks later and the new cable was installed and no issues since.
