  1. Reupholstered my back bench seat and front bucket seats in my 1971 Mustang Grande, installed new seat tracks and can't remember how the one separate spring connects to the track or seat and perhaps it doesn't make much difference really, but does anybody know the correct spring configuration for the track opposite the lever track or what two points to attach the spring correctly ? Searching for this information on the web only seems to yield 60's pony car results, no '71 - '73 pictures or videos is why I am asking. Picture would be nice !
  2. I recently removed the Steering Column to replace the Plastic End Bushing and Shift Linkage Bushing and was going to do the rag joint or steering coupler also, but my factory Ford one was still in great shape and worked better than the new part, so I simply reused it and then connected back to gear box more easily and also installed a new Scott Drake Turn Signal Switch, but still have the original Ford Turn Signal Switch and Wiring Harness in very good shape. Anyway also replaced glass fuses and everything works fine except the Buzzer, which only Buzzes when the Driver Door is Open
  3. Okay sure if you could take some pictures, that would probably be helpful. I removed the center bolt and unplugged the green block, but that was as far as I got, seemed like the black fuse block or end housing wasn't going anywhere from that point aside from about (1/2" - 1") leway. So was wondering what all more I needed to do to actually free up the housing, then remove from car and insert the original fuse clips into the new block housing when it arrives.
  4. When you say Clip that Disconnects Engine Harness from Dash Harness, does that mean the Fuse Block should pull right out after Disconnect ? I've unscrewed that Center Bolt before, and unplugged the male and female green blocked shaped wire connectors, but the black fuse box block, cover or housing and wire harness were still closely tied together, which I thought was by way of the metal fuse clips or prongs and that they needed to be individually gently pried inward to free the block up. Wasn't sure either if that was enough and might further have to cut some wires etc...Be nice to also
  5. Trying to find information or instructions on how to Remove and Replace only the Black Fuse Block (cracked & chipped) on a 1971 Mustang, pictures always welcome also. The Fuse Clips or Pins look okay (no rust) and the Wiring Harness also looks fine (in tact and everything works), but the Fuse Block itself is Chipped and Cracked in several places exposing the Metal Clips, so was able to find a Grade A Used Fuse Block from WCCC and was searching the Internet/Web for videos, instructions, forums, pictures anything I could possibly find on replacing the block procedure/process, but coming
  6. So nobody has used Distinctive Industries ? That is what I pulled out of my 1971 that has been installed and held up for about 15 years... Like I said, all the research I have done reveals (2) main points. 1) TMI is more accurate for MACH I's and has the correct for Piping (Extruded Welted Chord). 2) DISTINCTIVE was more durable for Daily Driver and didn't fall apart, rip or tear as easily. Thanks everybody for your input and feedback !
  7. I am trying to decide between Distinctive Industry and TMI for Standard or Deluxe Seat Upholstery complete set on a 1971 Mustang Coupe w/ Medium Green interior. I believe I like the "Standard" better than the "Deluxe" because I have had deluxe for 15 years and don't like the color difference, plus the "Comfort Weave" is pressed vinyl and not true comfort weave and lastly the standard look nicer to me. But I am NOT sure which brand makes a better quality product to be honest and most Forum entries on this same Topic or very Dated circa 2004 timeframe... Apparently back the
  8. Well I was told that all of the '71 - '73 Coupes / Grandes only came with (1) Driver Side Torsion Bar or Rod, the Mach I's had (2) Shorter Rods Driver and Passenger. So I am not sure how or where to acquire a Passenger Side Torsion Bar, but I found the Driver Side Torsion Bar. If anybody has a LH & RH bars or BOTH rods for a 1971 Mustang Grande, please Email me at 1971stang@gmail.com and I will Buy them. The one existing Torsion Bar that I have was adjusted from Bottom to Middle Groove or Notch on the Hinge on the Driver's Side and although it does work a bit better (not slamming shut f
  9. Where did you get the Torsion Rods or Torque Springs from ? I can't find them anywhere for a 1971 Mustang Grande Coupe, unless you buy the entire DynaCorn Deck Lid kit for $400...??
