  1. You'll find a fairly comprehensive list of code numbers here Ford Code Numbers - Individual Project Build Threads - 7173Mustangs.com
  2. They are both the same Pertronix 1 (1281) module. The DV version has a different adapter plate to fit the dual point breaker plate better.
  3. I think your mice must like rubber and grease. This is what it should look like Lower Control Arm Assembly - Economy for 1967 Mercury Cougar, 1968 Mercury Cougar, 1969 Mercury Cougar, 1970 Mercury Cougar, 1971 Mercury Cougar, 1972 Mercury Cougar, 1973 Mercury Cougar, 1967 Ford Mustang, 1968 Ford Mustang, 1969 Ford Mustang, 1970 Ford Mustang, 1971 Ford Mustang, 1972 Ford Mustang, 1973 Ford Mustang at West Coast Classic Cougar :: The Definitive 1967 - 1973 Mercury Cougar Parts Source (cougarpartscatalog.com) You can get replacement boots, just fill it with grease before you out it on.
  4. It will probably be worthwhile for you to get a Marti Report Marti Auto Works - Marti Report And an Eminger Report (original invoice) Marti Auto Works - EMINGER - ORIGINAL FORD INVOICE for your car to find out what it came with.
  5. Welcome from Oregon. You'll find a lot of helpful people on this forum, so feel free to start asking. The search function works very well, and you'll be amazed what information is available. By the way, we like Mustang pictures (hint, hint).
  6. Because the front of the Jeep and engine are over the rear axle of the bus, it shouldn't be too bad. The length of the bus and the engine in the front of the bus are more than enough to counterbalance the rear of the Jeep, which probably weighs less than the shell of the bus would have. That was probably a 50 or 60 passenger bus, so the potential passenger load would have required a frame and rear axle that would have been more than enough to support the weight of the Jeep. I'm guessing the interior of the bus has been converted into living quarters, so the weight there would be minimal.
  7. Don't forget the motorcycles, like Triumph, Norton (when they were made in England), and BSA. NASCAR has managed to make it a very boring spectator sport, ranks right up there with watching golf and tennis. I never used to miss watching one on the TV, now maybe one out of every 5 or 6 races.
  8. You can go the the forum Wiki section and download the wiring diagram for your car, it should help.
  9. The '71 Ford Shop Manual, for Mustangs, says the bulb is clamped to the outlet tube of the evaporator. No mention of insulating.
  10. For their aluminum intake for the 351C Edelbrock recommends 18 - 20 ft-lbs for all of the bolts, achieved in two steps.
  11. Did you see if there are any blacksmith shops in the area? Whenever I needed cast iron welded that's who I looked for.
  12. It's not only the additives, but some are hygroscopic and absorb water, making for a very corrosive combination.
  13. It wouldn't take much to build one. The easiest would be to have the connectors, otherwise you would need to build a spring loaded plug that makes contact with the ribbons, or use alligator clips to connect to each gauge, you would need a 5 volt power source and 10, 40, and 70 ohm resistors. By starting the test at the connectors you would also be testing the circuit board at the same time. Edit, or buy the tester that Tony linked.
  14. It's in the tutorial section Hood lock install - Exterior, Body, Chassis & Paint - 7173Mustangs.com
  15. The primary reason for this thread was to discus reducing the amperage across the headlight switch and increase the power to and the brightness of the headlights. Another benefit of reducing the amperage consumed by the headlights is increasing available power (and voltage) to most of the rest of the car. All of the electrical systems in these cars is fed by that fat yellow wire that runs from the solenoid or terminal through the firewall and under the dash, except for power windows, convertible top, and heated rear window. All wire, including copper wire, has a small resistance to the fl
  16. The glass jar holds 6 ounces, the spray unit is replaceable, they work more like a rattle can. Here's some more info Preval 9 oz. Complete Spray Gun-267 - The Home Depot Preval Power Unit-268 - The Home Depot
  17. The easiest way may be to go to an automotive paint store that has a scanner, they should be able to match the color. Then get one of these to spray it with https://www.worldpaintsupply.com/preval-model-267-paint-spray-gun/
  18. The small front bowl is for the rear drum brakes, the larger rear bowl is for the disk brakes. Distribution Block - Power Disc Brake - Used for 1972 Mercury Cougar, 1973 Mercury Cougar, 1972 Ford Mustang, 1973 Ford Mustang at West Coast Classic Cougar :: The Definitive 1967 - 1973 Mercury Cougar Parts Source (cougarpartscatalog.com)
  19. Probably the backup light switch, one side of it is powered whenever the key is on. Depending on how long it's been hanging the insulation may have gotten damaged, exposing the copper strands.
  20. The shop manual has a separate section about parking brakes.
  21. The ignition switch and upper column (turn signals, emergency flasher and horn) have different connectors. Because the horn and emergency flashers function you are right, the problem is likely somewhere else. The turn signal fuse also powers the radio and backup lights. The emergency flasher is powered through a circuit breaker.
  22. You might try here Old Car / Auto Radio Schematics and Wiring Diagrams - JustRadios
  23. There's a connector on the side of the steering column that may have pulled apart.
