I been moving a 30 yr collection of 71 to 73 stuff down from the 2nd floor archive since January. It all has a lot of useful life left yet, and is why I kept it., but what to do with hundreds parts like glass, sheet meta,l hardware and interior stuff. Scrap prices are good now. so I need to see what to do before fall.   Somehow (I don't know where from) I got some Ranchero & Torino and Fairlane stuff mixed in that looks almost the same, but is different...

The big ugly mustangs is a love/ hate thing, but when James Bond could drive a Mach on 2 wheels thru that alley. I had to get me one of them, fresh from Dearborn...

I have a dura Spark system inMy car and it cuts outs out at around 3000 rpm. I have replaced wires and plus to no avail and have now bought a new coil. So I measured the two on the bench.  The one removed reads 1.1/200 between the + and - posts and 6.99/20 between the center and the +post. The new one reads 1.6/200 and 9.29/20 Which one is the good one? I have no idea what they should read.

It's a clean looking car. Should be a 73 according to the grill.

July 3rd!!!!
4th Celebration on Saturday the 3rd of July. I repeat, the Forth celebration is on Saturday 3rd of July this year.
Anna and I would like to invite everyone out to help celebrate the Birth of our great nation.
We are proud to welcome a band from the local area “30 Miles East”. This is a fantastic family friendly band playing both kinds of music: Country AND Western. I am looking for some help paying for the band this year. They are professional band with CDs and air play on the radio.
 
BBQ plans this year: We are using the Pig Rotisserie we made two years ago to smoke a whole hog. This thing is massive. Plan is to stuff 3-4 whole chickens and 10 pounds of sausage in it, sew it up and make another great smoked hog.
Please bring Fireworks. We live outside city limits, so Big Boom fireworks are highly encouraged. If you can afford one, please bring at least one big boom. We also have areas that are for the little kids so bring sparklers and such for the young uns.
Home Brew: If you are a brewer, I encourage you to bring a sample. I made 5 gallons each of “Ed the Red Amber” and a “White Belgian”.
Things to bring:


  • Fireworks (If you have kids bring some kid friendly ones) bring Big Booms too.
  • Food/Desserts
  • Drinks (Adult or kid friendly)
  • Lawn chairs
  • Kids
  • Bags of Ice
  • Water Balloons/Water Guns
  • BUG SPRAY!
  • Yard Games
  • Water Guns for the kids

Food theme will be good old Texas BBQ Rotisserie Hog. With Beans n’ Fixens. Oh yeah.
 
A good head count needed on who is thinking of coming out. 

Goal is to keep all ten fingers and toes and most of your hearing but still have a good time. 

Our address is 341 Howell Rd, Royse City, Texas.

Hello guys , attempt to understand sniper efi comes out someting riddle , i'm lost ....please shine a light ! 
Efi system needs clear 12v input from coil , 
Ford has " pink wire " that drop 12v to 7v , not good as input signal to efi .
Efi system support magnetic pick up from MSD  ,, but seems pertronix 1 ( same thing) burn efi ecu .
without add new distributor and ignition  what can i do ? Return to pointer and condenser ? 

Is possible to upgrade points to full 12 volts instead run the pink wire ? 
Do not look to add hei distributor , msd injection or timing control . just the easy plug and play . 
thanks ! 
 

You need to run a wire from the ignition switch to thee distributor.  The pink part of the pink wire doesn't begin for a couple of inches coming out of the switch, so you can tap into it right where it exits from the switch.  Run it to the distributor instead of the pink wire. keep the pink wire going to the coil.

(actually, the best approach is to get a 12 volt coil and completely replace the pink wire)

Also I’m thinking of removing the wiper arms and blades then maybe  buying a bottle of rain x cause I don’t plan on going out when it’s wet.😜

Maybe change to the older Ford Duraspark ignition system.  They are apparently fairly inexpensive and abundant, though finding one in Italy may be a problem.  Maybe you could find a distributor and module on ebay.

FYI Ford, Classic Mustang Tech Discussion » Mechanical cooling fan » Today 5:57 AM

A proper control circuit for an electric fan should include two relays (one for normal operation and one to trigger the fan when the AC compressor clutch is on).  If this is done with ground side switching its easy enough to include a master override switch so if anything in the temp sensor fails you can still manually trigger the fan.  This is how I wired mine.  The switch is hidden behind my auxiliary gauges below the radio.  There is I need it, hidden so no one wonders what that switch does.

Back in the '80s, I was riding in my then '68 with a girl passenger when it started to mist rain.  While she and I were chatting away, I turned towards the steering wheel and quickly told the Mustang that the windshield was getting too wet and then went right back to our chatting.  It continued to mist lightly and I told the car again about the windshield.  Then finally the windshield was completely wet and I sternly told the Mustang "I couldn't see" so the wipers wiped one time.  I said, "thank you".  Keep in mind that I never moved my hands to any controls.  The girl was stunned and asked what just happened.  I told her that my Mustang and I had an understanding.  She said, "no really, how did you do that?".  Meanwhile, the windshield was getting wet again and so again I told the Mustang to pay attention to the rain and the wipers once again wiped one time.  The girl looked confused and I went back to our conversation.  Meanwhile, ever now and then the wipers would wipe one time on their own.  Finally the girl interrupted saying she really wanted to know how the car was doing that!

So why delete this feature?  https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
