    What to do with an old motocraft 2 barrel carb?

    I was at my mom's house cleaning out her shed and ran across some old tools and car parts. One of the parts is a motocraft carb with a "D2wf CB" tag. I believe it came off my parts car back around 2001 and has just been sitting there. The car was a plain jane 72 fastback with a 351C. Is the...

    1973 Mach1 Etched glass LED sign.

    I got myself a CNC machine and have been making all sorts of little things. My project for this afternoon was this. I found a drawing of a 71-72 mustang online. Then had the wife change the headlights and side stripes so it looks more like a 73 model. I used the CNC to engrave it on a sheet...

    Is there a subforum to offer a non-mustang car?

    I've got a fairly decent quality 1969 thunderbird with a 429. I'd prefer another mustang, and this website has folks who have old mustangs. Is there a spot in the classifieds here where it is appropriate to list a non-mustang car, with the hopes of trading for a mustang?

    What's the current state of idler arms for our cars?

    While I'm all up in my car's steering and suspension on the front end, I was looking at replacing or rebuilding my idler arm. It looks like there's not an easy answer. From reading the past threads, I've come across a handful of parts, but it seems like all the ones that are great fits are...

    Giantpune's 73 mach 1 project thread

    Figured I'd make a thread for my car. Its a pretty rough looking fastback. I got it back in the 90s. You can tell its been a project car a few different times. And its been wrecked pretty nastily a few times. When I got to it, it was sitting in a field with nothing under the hood and the...

    Parts list for a full wilwood brake conversion?

    My car is a 73 mach1 with power disc/drums. I'm toying with the idea of swapping the entire brake system over to something like wilwood 4 wheel disc brakes with their master cylinder, proportioning valve, and the cable system to use the factory parking break pedal. I've heard that even their...

    Looking for measurements for radiator support

    I'm in the middle of replacing my radiator support.  The old one is being replaced because the car was wrecked  and the passenger side of it was fubar.  Before I did any cutting, I made a lot of measurements and markings for where everything lined up.  Then once I got everything unbolted and...

    Removing watermarks from assembly manuals

    Last week, I ordered the CD with the 6 ford assembly manuals.  UPS man delivered it today.  On the CD, there are 6 pdf files with the manuals and helpful pictures and information.  Unfortunately, the folks who made them put a huge stinking watermark of their company name over every single page. ...

    Wipers spontaneously started working, but they get parked in the up position.

    So as long as I've had my car, decades plural, the wipers have never ever worked.  At one point, I replaced the motor.  Then I replaced the switch.  They still never worked.  Even today and yesterday, I was playing with the switch while driving around and the wipers didn't do anything. Then...

    My windows rattle on every bump in the road. Which parts do I need to look at?

    I'm starting to chase down all the different sounds my car makes and get them squared away.  Some of those noises are coming from the doors.  Every time I hit a bump, the doors make a bunch of noise.  With the driver's panel off and the window rolled down, I can see the glass is rocking distal...

    How is the windshield wiper switch installed?

    Y'all bear with me here.  Every since I've had my car, I've not had wipers.  I just rainex it and drive it like that. I have the hole where the wiper switch is supposed to go.  I have a new wiper switch plugged into the connector and that whole thing is just dangling.  I also have a light bulb...

    Found a low miles 73 mach 1 for sale close by. Looking for advice for when I go to check it out.

    Back in the 80s, my mom, 18 at the time, had to sell her Mach 1 because she was extra pregnant and couldn't do the car seat in the back.  She sold it for a 4 door chevelle, but thats a different story for a different forum.  :D Anyhow, her current car is falling apart and we found what's...

    Which key and lock set do I need on my 73?

    The key and lock situation on my car is something of a mess.  The trunk lock is missing.  I've always opened it with a flat screwdriver.  The ignition lock is broken from where somebody tried to steal the car.  I have no clue where the keys to the doors are.  And I don't even know if our cars...

    Help picking out mag 500 wheel and tire package.

    Its time for new tires on my 73 mustang.  Apparently, between the time I put the tires on and now, these sizes stopped being popular.  Nobody in town carries my sizes.  They're a special order and its gonna run me north of $950 for 4 new tires. I figured that was my sign to start thinking about...

    Lower control arm joints don't look quite right. What's wrong?

    This is a 73 mach1 with factory disc brakes.  Years ago, I had the suspension parts replaced.  Then the car sat. I had it up on the alignment rack today and we saw the joints at both control arms where they meet the spindles doesnt look like its supposed to be that way.  It looks like maybe the...

    Brake guidance for 73 with power disc brakes

    I'm in the process of bringing my 73 mach1 back to life.  It has power brakes, discs up front and drums in the rear.  The brake system is somewhat pieced together and I suspect its not entirely correct. The master cylinder has a power brake booster and 2 pools under the lid and 2 outlets.  The...
