Mustang is out...

Finally I got the mustang running! The owner had came by to lend a hand. There were just a few little things to wrap up. I charged the battery, installed a new pcv valve and hose, coil wire and changed the oil and filter. I went with distilled water and some water wetter witch actually cools better than 50/50 mix. I had a little trouble getting the car started, so I had to go over the firing order and that was fine. Made some carburetor adjustment and then the engine came to life. Once on made the timing adjustment and set it to 34 degrees at 3,000 rpm. let it run for a while to get the water temp up and seal the radiator with the cap. once running a operating temperature I made more adjustment to the carburetor and now she was idling real nice. The owner still wants to replace the valve cover gaskets, power steering pump, alternator and brackets. New spark plug wire and eventually a new distributor and coil. Here are some videos from the start up and a little parallel parking. I will post more of a test drive soon.

Throttle linkage

Spend sometime getting the throttle linkage to work with the new carburetor and original knockdown linkage. There's a flat spot on the rod that will push down on the transmission linkage to down shift at full throttle.  Check it out.

Mustang update

Well its been slow these few weeks. I put some work in to the mustang and cleaned the garage a bit. The rainy season is coming so I need to make room for all my stuff I have out side. On the mustang I have the new intake manifold on, the timing gears were replaced, the crankshaft seal was replaced, the new water pump is on and new carburetor. I still need some miscellaneous parts to finish the job. So now I'm waiting for the owner to bring me more parts. Here's the progress.

Vega steering..

Today I got a chance to install the rebuilt Vega box that I got from Pomona swap meet. The original steering box had to much play and I could not adjust it any more. $120 bucks later I have a 3 year warranty Vega box. Now I'm under my avocado tree working on the pick up. This is a shady tree type job cause it's hot out side. The box is in and test driven. What a difference! The real test is on the hywy. Here's some photos.
