  1. Great information, looks like a Frankenstein setup. The good news is everything seems to work well together. Thank you
  2. I recently purchased a 71 Coupe with a transplanted 429 Cobra Jet engine and a 4 speed manual. I found random scraps of paper that lists what look like engine and transmission codes. I was hoping to learn a little more about what it all means. Not sure if they are complete or accurate. The codes and locations are as follows: Transmission Tail Shaft: C70R-7A040-A Bell Housing: C8AR7006-D (wide 8 hole case - whatever that means) D1VEA2B (next to starter) These random notes were also included....no idea what it means: WEB-AF-2DC 3.25 9" 815B
  3. So as with most clocks mine does not work in my newly acquired 71 coupe. Just wanted to know how to remove the clock from the center console. I did see 2 screws when I slid open the ashtray door but not sure what needs to be removed to free my clock.
  4. This does not seem to be the best design, with so many potential leak paths. Accessing the inner fittings seems next impossible. Worst of all is the leaking fluid gets all over the the place on my nice clean engine compt😜
  5. My 71 Coupe is leaking fluid from the power steering pump. The leak is not coming from the return line, so the only other culprit would be the pressure side. Not sure if the pump is original or aftermarket. I’m a newbie so i have no clue what the pressure hose configuration should look like, however the present arrangement doesn’t seem like a factory set up. The car did originally come with power steering so it wasn’t a conversion. The outside fitting is tight. Not sure if there is an o ring that might have failed. Any advice would be appreciated.
  6. Hi, my name is Mark. I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. I recently purchased a 71 Coupe which was transformed into a 429 CJ tribute car. The car is an original H code car and along with the big block a 4 speed top loader was also added. The car had 1 repaint in its original grabber yellow color. I’ve not owned Mustangs previously so I’ll be relying on the forum for help and support with my many questions and concerns. I have attached a few pics.
  7. Thank you for your feedback! I’m out on the spoiler, wasn’t too excited about drilling holes in the trunk lid anyway.
  8. Do the Fastback/Mach 1 rear deck spoilers fit a 71 Coupe? If so are the mounting dimensions the same? If it were your car, would you add one or is it too much?
