    It shouldn't be but I guess this is a heater set up for LHD....

  • You say this but many years ago I followed a pre war tractor out of a show and when I got home I noticed the car was covered in spatters of black oil on my white paintwork. It took me chuffing ages to get the oil off and re-polish the car. I keep well away from old tractors now....

    370 mile range going down hill with a following wind and a Donk-E pulling it. I feel Ford risk destroying the Mustang name and what it represents.

    replied to Auto choke conversion
    As you take it apart you will find a curled up bi-metalic strip that straightens when heated. As it straightens it pulls on a rod that takes the choke off. This bi-metalic strip is heated by either the exhaust manifold heat (in your case), water or an electric element. I shouldn't be too difficult to...

    replied to Strange electrical problems
    Take the battery terminals off and clean the battery posts and terminals. Also take the positive battery cable off the solenoid and also clean that. If there is still a problem take the battery earth cable off the post on the engine and clean that. It really sounds like a dodgy connection and this is...

    replied to Fumes from 289 Oil Filler Cap
    The Edelbrock cap should be the PCV so no need for an inline PCV. Just get a bit of hose from any decent motor factors and connect it to the carb.

    replied to Garage Dehumidifier
    I have a precast concrete garage and was fed up with all my tools rusting. I filled all the gaps I could and bought quite an expensive dehumidifier. Unfortunately it didn't make a blind bit of difference. I think you need a combination of heat and dehumidifying to get rid of the moisture

    The carpets you buy are moulded to the shape of the floor and trans tunnel. I think you will struggle to get a "normal" carpet to lay flat....

    Hi Peter,

    I checked on line and it seems they are still trading but closed a big depot in Georgia. I think their head office is centrerd around Hartford CT. I haven't used them for a few years now but back in the early 90's when I first got my car they were one of the best for international...

    replied to New carpet
    I bought a carpet from Mustang Unlimited in the USA and it was a good quality, certainly better than the one I replaced, which was not an original Ford one. It had to be trimmed to fit around the doors but it was not that difficult to fit.

    replied to Fumes from 289 Oil Filler Cap
    Sitting in the drivers seat the oil filler cap should be on the drivers side rocker box near to the radiator. The PCV is on the passenger side toward the firewall. I am pretty sure that the Edelbrock valve covers are an identical pair so that the passenger side is the same as the drivers side but turned...

    replied to Fumes from 289 Oil Filler Cap
    As rider says these engines are designed to run a PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) system. The idea of this system is that it keeps the engine crankcase below atmospheric pressure by using some of the manifold vacuum. This should prevent fumes coming out of the engine and also to some degree oil...

    replied to 65 mustang fastback
    Sounds like a good thing to do and with good quality parts they are not too difficult to fit and weld. I would do a continuous weld around them. It takes time but a much better job in the end. Also I think I would endeavor to do all the bodywork in one go especially if you have somewhere to work over...

    To be honest I think I would finish the cowl and front before ripping out the floors. The floors add a lot of rigidity so get the front all aligned then do the floors.

    replied to Tyre size on 15 wheels
    You can use a tyre size calculator like this to try and keep your rolling radius close to the original, otherwise on the rear you will start throwing the speedo out. Also the suspension height and wheel offset play a big part in whether a particular wheel/tyre combo will fit without hitting the arc...

    replied to Electric Mustang Revealed
    I read that there is not enough lithium in the world to meet battery requirements for the number of vehicles in the world. If ICE cars were banned we would be back to only rich people having cars.

    EVs are not zero emissions like some think - they still dump tyre rubber, brake dust and...

    replied to Tpms
    Yes at 6 per wheel it is the valve stem bit that is changed. The sensor is held onto the valve stem by a small screw. It might have been useful to have rememberd which wheel position each sensor came from. If they are put back on the car in the same position as they came off you don't have to do anything...

    replied to Tpms
    I am not sure what they mean by single use only. On your car they are little units attached to the valves and they may have had to damage the valve to remove them for coating. If you have new sensors in the wheels you may have to "train" these to the car. On the S197 Mustang you have a routine...

  • Well the new sensors arrived last week so it was off to the tyre bay to get a new sensor fitted today. It was interesting though that when I had the likely faulty sensor removed last week the TPMS didn't respond immediately to the fact that the faulty sensor had been removed. I drove the car for the...
