Hello from Crystal Lake, IL


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have had our 71 Mach1 since 2007.  I rebuilt the  in 2007 and the trans along with the rear diff in like in 2008.  I put the new quarter panels, trunk ffoor and wheel wells.


The car sat In the garage for like 10 years and just had it towed to  work to progress on it in my off time.


I just got the engine running again with help from this forum.


Very glad I found this forum, I hope I  can  here

Welcome from West TN. Lived in Grayslake, IL for 4 years. That is where my rear defroster glass exploded from a short in the relay. Glad you joined the group and our information helped you get her running and maybe encouraged you to get back to work on it. Keep us posted and ask questions or share learnings as you go along.

Just FYI, car is up and running a few hours ago! Exciting times.


Next up I have to wait for a lift to get it in the air to do an idler arm bushing and get this ride on the alignment machine, then go back thru the brakes before I get a test drive. Really want to verify the trans operation from the decade old rebuild I did.
