  1. When leaking pinion seal replaced does it come with a new crush nut and washer? What touque spec for nut.
  2. Still need to replace rusting fuel line from pump to carb and hard wire fuse link and fuse box...we have return line to canister so no regulator.
  3. Installing a holley mini max good up to 400HP. 5-7 psi. I mounted it on the frame rail front down arch 45 degree towards tank at steel gas line
  4. Installing electric fuel pump. Not getting enough fuel at full throttle and vapor lot with high temps hot soak restarts
  5. Hello again to current and new members. We retired in December and moved to Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina. Our house and honey do list took about three months to complete, but we are now pretty much set. The COVID 19 has brought my son and 5 granddaughters here from hot spot in Maryland so things have changed a little. Weather here is great so I now plan to spent more time with the Mach If wife lets me lollerz . Want to install A/C and window tint. Also want to change over to electric fuel pump and fan... Seems to stave alittle at higher RPM's So look forward to becoming active again and welcomed back to my old friends, and new ones to come. Alan L.
  6. O Let my son take the Mach out for a run today. Took his brother to witness. They both have Dodge SRT8's.One Charger other has Challenger. They got home and said the engine sounds great and keeps on pulling even at high speeds. Said has problem because speedometer stops at 120 as they showed me video of the dash. "We had to let off due to traffic" I now hide my keys. Has 2.73 single gears, so not quick off the line but has great top end. They still want me to add gears so I can spin both tires
  7. OK, my original engine code was H, but have added intake and now 4v carb. mild cam upgrade and headers. Heads are 30 over and new forged pistions. When I look up parts do I still check H code or Q or R code now with upgrades? Alan L.
  8. Found one for 71-73 mustangs complete less belt but with idler pulley $1400. Did you find idler through them?
  9. still for sale NOS full passenger rear quarter panel and aftermarket driver's lower rear panel. both sides rear 1/4 glass with mounting attached Alan L. will add pictures soon
  10. Since I'm moving south we need a/c added to enjoy on hot days. Seen a few how to's, but need to know what to stay away from. Buy universal kit or 71-73 kit. Price is very different and is it worth the extra $500. I can do it all myself having upgraded most of the car myself...... As usually the request I will send new pic's Alan L.
  11. Hello to all whom remember me and all new or not so members. 72 Mach is well and relocating. I will be retiring in September and becoming a real cruiser. Bought a home near Myrtle Beach and will settle at the end of the month. Car is running well but temp climbs at long lights as most. Will get back to posting soon once we get back to normal. My have to give up my tag when I relocate to SC Alan L. NOT2OLD
  12. Most mechanical system are working now, and I have finally got confidence that the car will get me home. I have driven more miles this year then the past 8 years I've she's been road ready. I've said it before and will repeat it, "still jump in the seat from horns going off from other drivers who like my car". I have painted my lower 1/4's and NASA hood black. Pictures will follow soon. Alan L.
  13. After replacing circuit board for dash and upgrading cluster bulbs, my headlights were inop. After reading some of our posts on the subject I order a new headlight and dimmer switch. First replacing the switch, lights were still out. To my surprise the dimmer was the cure. Just glad I ordered both, even though the switch had corrosion. Alan L.
  14. Want to paint my hood and lower body panels for more aggressive look. Can't decide on BOSS full blackout or just center typical NASCAR. Changes don't matter because nothing except trans and rear match the build sheet. Also on the fence about gloss or matt finish. Help with feed back. Alan L.
