  1. Section 36-32-02 of the shop manual has it, vacuum keeps it closed.
  2. I agree with Stanglover, sounds like something rubbing and being ground away. To me, if that is coming from the pump, I would suspect a piece of metal was in a hose or the box and got pushed into the pump.
  3. I like the idea of using steel that is both stronger and weld friendly. However, just because a steel is stronger (generally shown by tensile and yield strengths) a good steel also has to have toughness, ductility, and weldability. In other words reduced fatigue cracking and work hardening (embrittlement) and hardening from welding. Railroad rails are a good example of a steel that has both strength and ductility but welding requires a certain process to prevent brittleness. So in other words I would need to see the specs on it and I definitely have an open mind for trying something rathe
  4. Build up the edge of the door until you narrow the gap enough. If the weight of the engine and transmission change the gaps you likely have rusted out inner or outer rockers
  5. The wire that runs through the neutral safety switch to the starter solenoid is red with a light blue stripe. The wire that runs to the backup light bulbs from the switch is black with a pink stripe, the hot wire that runs to the backup light switch is white with a purple stripe.
  6. I've had 2 vehicles that were Wimbledon White, a '64-1/2 Mustang coupe and a '64 F100, both were creamy., not grayish.
  7. That camshaft comes with the 302 stock 154---- firing order.
  8. I don't know how I missed this when you first posted it, thanks for resurrecting it David. Nice upgrade Jeff, thanks. The ram on mine leaks around the pump piston and I haven't been able to find the correct seal, so I've made it, but it doesn't last that long, so I've been thinking about a new ram. The one from HF doesn't cost that much more than a mechanical one and my hoist is in good condition, so now I know how I'll take care of the problem. I've got time before I need it, so I know how I'll use the next HF 10% discount coupon.
  9. I meant better things to spend them on the Mustang, like the engine, which I should be able to start on in a couple of months. Right now the engine bay is empty, the interior is completely stripped, needs new weather stripping around the windows, including rear window, and it's been languishing in a storage shed for 9 months. Should have the new workshop ready for it to move into next month. Here's a picture of it from when we lived in Las Vegas before I could get it under cover, which is why it needs new weather stripping, the 115°F (46°C) sunshine wiped it out.
  10. A big issue with older vehicles is rotors and drums out of wear limits. The other related problem is people installing new pads and shoes without having the rotors and drums turned (machined) for a true and proper surface for the new pads and shoes to break into. Sometimes this is done deliberately because having them turned will cause them to exceed the wear limits of the rotors or drums, other times just a quick and dirty brake job by an owner that doesn't know better or an unscrupulous shop. Good quality pads and shoes and rotors and drums in good condition will provide you with more
