    Yes I saw that in your earlier post. Obviously, that needs correcting. If one front brake was on full pressure and the other fed through the prop valve I am surprised you didn't notice the car pulling to one side....

    OK. To test the motor make sure the earth is good. I think the earth has a bolt connector. The other two are bullet connectors. Put a 12v supply to one bullet and then the other. The motor should run fast on one and slow on the other. If it does this the fault is in the switch and you don't have power...

    Hi,
    On the first pic I think the only thing needed is that the inlets from the master cylinder need to be swapped. The second picture looks good. The switch in the middle is for a light on the dash to indicate that one brake circuit is leaking and faulty. There is a shuttle valve in the prop valve...

    How many wires come from the motor? Single speed is two and double speed is three...

    I had a look at your sketch. First off this type of prop valve doubles as the distribution block. The large rear bowl of the master cylinder should work the front brakes. The prop valve has two inlets for the pipes from the master cylinder and three outlets. Two of the outlets will be for the front...

    replied to Engine rebuild advice
    I tried to find another 289 back in the 90's but was not successful. I had plans to rebuild the engine whilst mine was still running in the car. The engine block in my car was cast in 1968 whilst the car is a 65, so it's been changed. This said when putting new heads on it I checked the stroke, and...

    started a topic Ulez

    Ulez

    Being right on the boundary of the proposed new expansion of the ULEZ I am particularly interested to know if my Mustangs will have to pay. It appears from the ULEZ car checker that the 2010 4.6 S197 I have will be exempt but, on the car checker my 65 is not. I then read other articles that say that...

    As said above the 65 heater motor is a two speed motor. The switch on the dash selects the speed. and it sounds like a wiring or switch problem.

    The 289 is a rare engine to replace now. If you go for a crate engine it will likely be a 302. It depends on how much you value originality. There are a few people around the country who could repair the crack so I would investigate the likely costs of doing that. i would also measure the bores and...

    replied to Round Up Magazine
    A good article by Pete Cavallo on the prices and popularity of Mustangs in the states. I am almost thinking, Peter, that it would be easier for you to source these cars in UK and Europe now. Obviously, the classic car hobby is very strong in the USA right now and hopefully that will drive the hobby...

    replied to Advice please
    First off I would really look closely around the top to bottom tank welds, especially where the lip for welding curves back into the main tank shape. This is where the metal is thinnest when the tank was pressed from sheet. There could be pin holes in this area and if there are I would recommend changing...

    replied to 65 disc brake master cyl fittings
    When I fitted the 9" servo on my car I had to re-drill the pedal arm as the servo rod had an offset end to it, but for the std 7" servo it has a straight eye on it that pretty well matches the old single circuit master cylinder. You are correct in that the stock manual brake pedal is a 6:1...

    replied to 65 disc brake master cyl fittings
    I don't think it's the pipes if they are not leaking and the pedal is solid. It could be a servo problem, but if you have a 7" servo like the ones in the disc conversion kits, I feel these are a bit marginal. I fitted one to my car and I could feel the pedal getting harder without braking effort...

    replied to Holly Sniper 2bbl efi system
    My car had a manual choke when I bought it, but it's mounted to the bottom of the dash, so I think it may have been added at some time. Because of this being in place I went with the manual choke, but I did do an AVS 2 conversion for our magazine editor and that was electric and works fine too, so I...

    replied to Starting issue
    The fuel should flow freely out of the tank line at the pump. The fuel line comes out of the tank and rises above the tank to go along the chassis rails. I guess it's a matter of pulling or pushing the fuel into the line using either an airline or a syphon of some sort....

  • Today I have hopefully sorted my dual master cylinder on the 65. I originally fitted it with the disc brake conversion kit about 5 years ago. It recently started to lose fluid from the rear reservoir, with it running into the servo. I managed to buy a new cylinder off a member here on the forum so thought...

    replied to Holly Sniper 2bbl efi system
    That is the first thing I noticed when I bolted it on, the idle was so smooth and the idle vacuum two points higher. Also, there is no hint of an off idle flat spot with dead smooth acceleration all the way to wide open throttle. The Holley I had was lumpier at idle and I had to mess with main jets...
