    Quarter window adjustment

    I found the easiest way was to wind the door window up as it will be, close the door then get inside and move the quarter glass to match the door window.  You will have the door glass to line up with and to check it all comes together.  You may never get it 100% leak free with new rubbers etc...

    Added a 3-Point seat belt to my fold down rear seats

    Yes - fronts only.  No rear belts as too much hassle and nobody will be in there anyway.  I left the old ones there rather than dump them and a new owner may choose to re-visit this at some point.  Part of the L02 requirement calls for unrestricted exit for any rear passengers so I figured that...

    Added a 3-Point seat belt to my fold down rear seats

    Does any of this help ?  This plate was made to specs requested by my ADR compliance guy. Material is 6 mm thick & plates are approx 100 mm x 75 mm.  The large bolt is the seat belt one while the smaller bolt & nut secure it in place - no welding required.  Position it where it needs to...

    Window trim

    Hello from a fellow Aust owner.  You'll need to post what body style it's for - Mach 1 Sportsroof I recall ?  Watch for a reply from Mike Beradi ( Motorcity Mustangs ) as he has a collection of parts cars.  Also Don & O M S. Keep digging.

    72 Mach 1 - 351C - What goes through this hole in the firewall?

    Does the car have air cond ? Or DID it have a/c ?  I'm picking the brown wire would be connected to the compressor drive and activates the magnetic clutch when the a / c is turned on.   Yes, there was a rubber grommet to secure it through the firewall.  If it is ( was ) the wire to the a /c...

    72 Mach 1 H code - Where is the likely place for the body number stamped on the engine

    Hi Brendan.  I'm the same poster as 188LVU on the Aust owners site. Engine number will be on the back of the black, left hand ( drivers ) side, just below the head.  This is from inside the car, not standing in front of it. I managed to get in via the top to scrape off 3 layers of gunk, attack...

    How full should the radiator be? 351 C

    On the side, just below the cap, should be the words " cold fill " or something similar.  May depend on the radiator you have if not original or good repro. Either way, if you overfill it, the surplus will be spat out when it's at running temp.  Any more than that may suggest a problem but...

    Lower door hinge replacement.

    So far, so good.  On my earlier reply, I didn't get into the roller alignment detail.  Mine were all seized up with old grease & gunk.   Again, not a lot of movement so should not be a wear problem.  Make sure they both move freely and the tension spring is in the right place.   There will...

    73 Q Code Air Cleaner Flexible Air Duct

    Not sure how you will search this, but a year or so back I recall there was an option someone found for a JEEP ! !  Others may chime in with better info but it was almost identical dimensions etc.   Keep digging.

    Lower door hinge replacement.

    There is very little movement at the points where the curled part of these springs contact so if they are well lubed same as the hinge pins, they should be fine.  My car was missing one on the driver's side but I could not find the torsion piece on its own - ended up with a used complete hinge...

    Sticker/Decal Placement

    I did the same as you.  Finally found the locations listed by the sticker manufacturer whom I'm sure is known to others here - Jim Somebody ? ? Anyway:  the tire spec decal goes on the passenger side door B pillar just below the lock striker ( many put them on the door itself ) The yellow...

    Trunk floor plug/cover

    Agree - metal plug / cap, same as the floor ones.  I tried a rubber shock top cover but even with trimming the outer edges it would not fit properly & stay there.  Had to re-drill one hole to line it up for the screws ( probably repro & not accurate )

    Coolant recovery tank- looking for pictures.

    And me too.  Not a good pic.  The recovery unit is just in the bottom right corner.  Had to make a couple of brackets to keep it vertical but used existing holes in the rad support panel.   Overflow tube comes through a hole down the bottom and drain sits below the stone guard underneath.  Can't...

    Does anyone make a repro charcoal canister nipple for air cleaner?

    I went through the same things.  West Coast Classic Cougars showed one with $38 price tag.  I'm in Australia & chose to skip this.  Ended up getting a 3/4" black poly irrigation fitting and doing some real backyard mods on it.  Basically out of site so decided it was good enough.  Keep looking.

    NEW GLASS FOR 1971 MACH 1 VIN: 1F05M218422 MANUAL WINDOWS

    Greetings from a fellow Aussi owner.  It's an 05 Mach 1 so will be 63R.  The " tab " they refer to would be on the rear edge of the left hand door but frequently lost over time.  If you haven't already got one, order a Marti report for this VIN, it will tell you all kinds of detail & help...

    Hose from pcv valve to air cleaner??

    If this all has a happy ending, I'm chasing these connections also.  I was sent a link to one of the straight connections for emission tube @ $38 but chose to pass on this. The crankcase PCV filter housing and pad plus the spring clip are not so bad but that rubber 90 deg elbow is the kicker...

    Power Steering Deep Dive

    I have been in the hydraulics / fluid power industry for many years.  General requirements for all hoses, end fittings & adapters is for a 4 : 1 safety factor - means that if a system is intended to work at 1,500 p.s.i., the " design minimum burst " for all components should be 6,000.  We...

    Power steering pump and hose question

    I've just had the same problem - overfilled the reservoir and it blew the surplus out past the dipstick.  Note on the dipstick reads " check with oil hot " and fluid will show just on the hash marks at the bottom.  Engine should be " off " for this check.   The tube acts as a mini expansion...

    Power Steering pump hose index bracket

    Last one - not the best but should be enough to see the end result.  This connection brings the pressure line up where you can get at it.   Took the dipstick out for this pic.    Hope all this helps you tidy it up. Have fun.
