  • As said above I think the best solution is the Pertronix Module. You can get one specifically for your dizzy that you can fit in minutes. Its a good upgrade because I think the quality of the repop points is rather dubious. The heals on mine were wearing away very quickly so the points gap was reducing...

    replied to Garage Recommendations - 70 Won’t Start
    I went through some pain like this a couple of years ago. I had the Mallory Hyfire module. Everything would be ok and then suddenly the car would just not start. Then after some fiddling it would work fine for a couple of weeks and then the same thing. I was triggering mine with a Pertronix Unit so...

    That's a result. I think an official set will knock you back about 20 by the time they are on your doorstep. I have saved 's by lateral thinking for solutions....

    I'm glad you got the steering box sorted. It also sounds like you have made good progress on the export brace. Those bolts are pretty cr@p quality and expensive for what they are but its not easy to make them from good quality bolts. I wonder if ordinary coach bolts could be adapted but I am not sure...

    When I fitted mine I had the same issues. The shock towers had moved inboard by around 10mm and the car had sagged by a around 8mm. I sat it on jacks as you have done and a couple of us kept sitting on the top of the radiator and eventually over a few days I got the shock tower to firewall dimension...

    If you are going to do the Shelby drop you will have to remove the UCA's anyway. Its a good time to completely strip them down. As mentioned the big nuts on the ends of the shaft Have O ring seals in them to stop water ingress. On the end of the big nut there should be a grease nipple but to access...

    We used to have a greyhound that used to like lying in the front passenger footwell with her head on the centre console. This was my 1965 notch back. Years ago it was the two kids in car seats in the rear with the wife in the front passenger seat with the dog in her footwell and the boot full to the...

    Yes I agree with Pete. Don't cut up a genuine factory console, they are rarer than hens teeth. If you really want to do this use a repop console and make a big profit selling the genuine one.

    replied to Squeaking Upper control arm 1965 Coupe
    These can be a pain when they start squeaking. As rider says its all about getting some grease in the joint. The big nut on the end runs on a thread on the end of the actual shaft so even if you have the grease nipples it is still difficult to get fresh grease into them. If you are up to it the only...

    replied to Lower Hose support Spring. Available in UK?
    I would just see if you can get hold of some 3mm (1/8th inch) wire, like welding rod and wind your own spring. It doesn't have to be accurate, its just a rough fit inside the hose.Just make sure the last coils are the same diameter as the inside of the hose so the "spring" can't be sucked...

  • I would say to fit proper three point seat belts you are going to have to do some welding to get decent anchor points but it is doable. I fitted belts front and rear back in the early 90's so my memory is a little sketchy. I have the inertia reel mounted at floor level for the front seats. The back...

    Well best of luck. Initially when you try you may well think that there is a big error but these cars do move a lot over their lifetime. This said they do respond to a bit of "manipulation"...

    It sounds like the geometry has been set ok. If you suspect something with the cars "straightness" you could do some measuring but I've been told that these cars were never as accurately made as modern jigged up cars, so you may find some minor alignment errors anyway. I fitted an export brace...

    That's a nice bit of rear wheel steering then.

    Yes modern cars with rack and pinion steering feel very different. There is much more of a "dead" bit in the centre of the classic Mustang steering. You just need to be moving the steering wheel across this dead area to keep the...
