  1. Ginger. No! MaryAnne! Ginger! Maryanne!
  2. If you have a laptop, it may shut down a variety of power devices at a pre-set time of no activity to conserve battery power. Check your power settings. I can see the laptop disabling the wireless to save power.
  3. No early Mustang used a horn relay, unless you are talking about the steering wheel switch to blow the horn.
  4. Yup, the MPC. The most common one is 65-72, which does one no good if you have a 73. You can find the 65-72 version for free on the squarebirds website.
  5. It is located behind the glove box area and is an approximately rectangular box, about 3/4 x 3/4 x 2. You'll see two 90* slip-on connectors with the appropriate colored wires on them.
  6. Not to be Debbie Downer, but NOS typically means never used or installed. Those wheels and lug nuts don't look unused to me. Nevertheless, the wheels look to be in very good shape indeed.
  7. The green-red wire runs from the circuit breaker to the 4 way flasher connector and then on to the brakes. The line 37 is part of an OEM splice deeply buried in the harness: battery power. If you have brake lights, then the circuit breaker is working. To test the circuit, simply bypass the circuit breaker, use a jumper cable between the two wires and test for brakes. Don't do this for long, in case there is a short somewhere.
  8. I'm too busy checking out shorts: miniskirts are the best! Has anyone noticed you're paying more attention to people's eyes now that almost everyone is wearing masks?
  9. I'd be concerned about motor/tranny mounts: if bad, the whole system can torque throwing off a bit of the shifter mechanism. I say this because you said everything is fine when engine isn't running.
