    Idler arm replacement

    Th idler arm from WCCC part number 26729 is the exact one that I replaced onto my Mustang about a two months ago. My car has factory power steering. The arm fitted perfectly and side by side with the old one the geometry of the part was identical as far as I could see. Also, the car didn't need...

    Idler Arm Issue

    I didn't notice the manufacturing stamping on mine before I put it on, thanks to Moderator73 posting a photo with manufacturer details. One thing I would say is to beware of the Scott Drake version of the part. I first bought a Scott Drake version from a local Australian seller under Scott...

    Idler Arm Issue

    Buy the one in the link here from West Coast Classic Cougar. It's the same one used for manual and power steering cars. The link even has installation photos to look at. I bought and installed this one two months ago for...

    Who's ready for Summer?

    Greg, I am assuming you have a banana daiquiri permanently installed in your drink holder, as mandated by state law for all convertible owners in sunny Queensland? 🍌🍹

    Anyone know how to get a Grant horn button to function and not just spew sparks?

    This was also the case with my Grant Challenger set-up. At random times while turning the wheel I would hear one of the flasher cans operating in the dash, though the blinkers were never flashing when this happened. Turns out the peaks of the hex on the nut were just touching the horn copper...

    1971 1972 1973 Mustang fastback wind down quarter window conversion

    1971 to 1973 fastbacks didn't come out with wind down quarter windows - the only way you could go pillarless was to order the electric window option. However all the holes and mounting points are pressed into the inner rear quarter side wall to allow the winding mechanism from a '71-'73 coupe to...

    Don't try this at home

    Pretty sure nobody has to believe this, looks fairly fake to me. Why would a car that's been set fire to at the gas filler start exploding first under the hood and then fly backwards like it's rocket powered?

    I wanna run for Pres. of the USA

    Well, you are welcome to come to Australia any time the wildlife starts to get out of control, your ecky-thump skills would come in handy during such circumstances. On a side note, about three weeks ago I had my Mustang parked for a while in the open backed garage on the side of my house rather...

    I wanna run for Pres. of the USA

    Kind sir, as an Australian I take exception to the serious misinformation presented here :chin: We do not ride crocodiles and get chased by funnel web spiders, we ride crocodiles to hunt down funnel web spiders.

    What did you do today instead of working on your Mustang?

    I'm assuming the fences around the trees are there to either stop horse munching on the trees, or to stop horse carts from hitting the trees, or both. Here's another one that I've just finished adding color to from 1875, and how it looks now:

    What did you do today instead of working on your Mustang?

    I've been spending time adding colour to old black & white photo's of my hometown, Bendigo (Victoria, Australia) to add to our local Facebook history page. Bendigo was founded out of the gold rush of 1851 and the Bendigo fields have produce over 700,000kg (154300 lbs) of gold between...
