    Chrome Mirrors

    Hello,      Have two Mustang mirrors, not sure of the exact model year.  The first one appears to be lightly used, some very minor pitting in the chrome on the back of mirror. Part # on this one is D1ZB-17743-AA. The second one pictured is brand new with no Ford part #, a re-pop I believe. ...

    front end vibration

    Hello, Sorry for the lateness in this response .... very busy of late. Yes, it has been resolved and long story short it was 90% wheel balance and 10% Pittman arm. Keep in mind I have had the wheels balanced at least 3 times by reputable garages with modern equipment. I took the Mustang to a...

    Carburetor

    PS, I guess the only way to rule out the fuel pump would be to remove and inspect or just replace ? Thanks

    Carburetor

    The fuel cap is NOS, but I'll check the gasket. Filler hose and tank grommet are new. Vent line to carbon canister is newer. Fuel lines from tank to carb I'll have to look at next time I have the car up in the air, but no evidence of gas on the garage floor.  I'll check the vent lines also, but...

    Carburetor

    Ok ....will do .... I'll post what I find. If they are burning correctly they shoudl be brown/tan ? If that is what I see I guess I can reinstall them. If the carb is running rich or have a bad plug would I see black carbon appearance ? What would you recommend for a gap on my plugs ? Stock...

    Carburetor

    Hello,     Will have to pull a few spark plugs and see what they look like .... should I pull them all initially or maybe one from each side ?  If I go out at anytime and smell the oil I smell a light odor of fuel in it.  All the vacumn lines and PCV valve are correctly attached and...

    Carburetor

    Hello,       Have checked many of the above items.  Car runs well and performs well.  No running on when shut off and no pinging. Choke operates properly and opens all the way when warmed up.  Did have the carb professionally rebuilt a few years ago to stock set up.  My reason for this post is...

    front end vibration

    Hello, what I am feeling is definitely not normal. It really does feel like something in the front wheels it’s sort of a shake or oscillation....is still more back-and-forth. It really does feel like tire balance but I’ve had them balanced. I checked the rag joint today and I think it’s fine. If...

    front end vibration

    Hello, Just catching up on these most recent posts. When I last had the Magnum 500 wheels balanced I told the tech that they had to be balanced "lug centrically" He used an adapter that attached thru the 5 lug holes. Was this the correct way to balance ? I will look at my lug holes over the...

    front end vibration

    Hello, Drove it today with the top up made no difference at all.  The cyclic vibration is definitely in the steering wheel only, not felt anywhere else.  Not in the body, seat or pedals.  It comes on then fades away as slow as 20 mph and is at its worse at 40 -50.  It feels like something in the...
