    Oil pressure sending unit

    When I was replacing the sending unit a few years ago, I had the same issue and I spent a looong time searching for something that would work. A 9/16" was needed but just needed to be a little longer than a normal socket. This appears to be a homemade socket that I found on ebay, most likely...

    Anybody know what this is?

    So, that small hose he is holding gets connected to the smaller nipple on the right. The bigger connection on the left gets a black corrugated hose that also connects to the air cleaner. https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/d1uz-9d667-a.html?sessionthemeid=26

    Spare tire and wheel

    Is F60-15 your tire size? Since finding any polyglas tires that size is difficult the equivalent radial is 235/60 - 15 that you could use in an 'emergency' if mixing radial and bias ply doesnt bother you for short use. You just need to buy a 15" Ford rim. That size radial is also very hard to...

    NSS related question

    The one for the 72 has 2 connectors. So, just dont connect one although the connectors look different? Here is one for a Bronco C6 where the connector looks like the one I have. The squarish 4 pin connector. Would that work? I remember reading on here or another mustang site where someone was...

    Any body know if theirs a replacement

    I know what you mean. But, you can reach underneath the brace to change plugs. Its tight but possible. Your hands may get scraped from the master cylinder in the process but not to bad. Other than that, you can remove the left bolt at the firewall and the nuts at the shock tower and then pivot...

    NSS related question

    Well when I'm looking at the drivers side of my C6 351c, it appears to be mounted in that location. Were some mounted at the trans as opposed to the console? And back to my original question, which one should I use?

    NSS related question

    Do they sell a neutral safety switch specifically for the 71 C6 trans? I see them listed for 72, 73 or C6 for some other vehicle i.e. bronco. Can these be used? Mine has one cable with a 4 connector end.

    Original replacement shock absorbers

    Are the measurements of the ebay one the same as the picture in the manual? Is your sway bar original or aftermarket?

    Interior painting

    As suggested a couple of posts above, you may want to try an automotive paint store. Take the quarter panel in or something with the paint you are trying to match and have them match it with a custom mix. I wanted to do a couple of engine touchup spots but wasnt having any success with the...

    Noisy 351 Cleveland

    Sounds timing related, so check your timing. See what the initial timing is set for after removing and plugging vacuum advance line. Maybe set it for 6 - 10 BTDC. Then see when the mechanical advance kicks in and when and what the timing maxes out as.

    Return radiator hose collapse

    Doesnt sound normal. I have read from other sites that it can be caused by a radiator cap issue. Try a new cap.

    power steering noise

    A few of us have used PowerSteering.com for pump and steering box rebuilds with good luck. Dont know if he was the one you used but he seemed good so hopefully it wasnt him. Always good to know bad vs good companies to deal with.

    Show me Examples of aftermarket gauge or tach installs?

    On my 71, I have the center gauges and also wanted to keep things as original as possible. I have the tach but wanted more reliable gauges for temp and oil than the factory ones. The ammeter since its a possible fire hazard, I had converted to a voltmeter via Rocketman. Autometer oil and temp...

    LED Headlights - opinion

    Have not seen these before but was wondering if anyone else is familiar with them or have them installed. I like that they are direct plug in with no adapters to fit classic cars. Dont know if they are a new product or been around a while. The price is kind of high but they will most likely last...

    Stalling cuts out instantly.

    From Pertronix site below. The 2 is an improvement on 1. I've heard 3 is least reliable. 1 or 2 should work with stock tach and pink wire setup. You just need a switched +12v for the module and the Flamethrower 1.5 ohm coil. The original Ignitor Module is ideal for restorations while the...

    Stalling cuts out instantly.

    You may want to switch from the Unilite to Pertronix 2. Pertronix 2 is an improved Pertronix 1 but with higher voltage output. However, it can burn out if ignition is left on. Pertronix 3 fixed the burning out issue but was unreliable due to changing timing. From what I've read anyway.

    Tire prices - comment

    From what I understand, they would need to be replaced in about 10 yrs, whether driven or not. Which tires did you decide to put on the Shelby? the Firestones or some other?
