Wanted to Buy / Re: 68 radiator/hood seal- Original

Be tough to find and original in usable condition that wasn't damaged from removal.  Consider that an original that was installed will have staple holes in different locations than another car.

Have to give the seller some respect for bringing a car like that to auction... big block converted to small block!

The market is usually not kind to heavily modified cars like this, but lots of buyers do like this type of car, so we'll see.

Quote from: Bill on May 24, 2024, 07:10:50 AMUnfortunately, their water pump rebuild service pages have been marked "Restoration Service Discontinued" for quite some time.

Jack did a '65 pump for me not that long ago.  He sells parts to rebuild and a press adapter to install the front seal.  I've done a few, relatively straight-forward.
Look like large center hole, not right for '68.  Should be ok for a clone.

Period correct OEM Ford keys typically have an 'H' stamped on them.
6S015, white
Seen the same on SJ cars and also other assembly plant cars.  Probably a rotation number or something to ID that a particular type of windshield went in a car optioned for that specific type.
Quote from: tesgt350 on May 06, 2024, 06:59:18 AMBeautiful Mustang for sure but, I would not use the term "Highly Optioned".  It doesn't have A/C, P/S, P/B.  What is the Radio, AM, AM/FM or AM/8 Track?  I would say nicely Optioned.

Considering a/c, p/s and p/b were not available on K codes, I'd say it was pretty well optioned being a GT and deluxe interior.
Quote from: deathsled on May 05, 2024, 10:56:41 PMSo as I thought more about your observations Mr. Turner, does the mark being more to the left when the alignment was done therefore translate to my steering wheel being unable to turn full left to its maximum lock and being able to turn too far over to the right?  That sounds a bit perilous.

That's correct.  It's probably not too noticeable being about a 1/4 of a turn off, but should be fixed.
When the front end is properly aligned, the steering box shaft index mark should point to the 12 o'clock position.  This centers the worm gear/sector shaft the same turns lock to lock.  There is a mark on the steering wheel where the marks should line up.  I'd put the steering wheel on the proper alignment to the shaft and take it back to whoever did the alignment and have them re-do it.
Looks like the regular 289 alternator belt.  Hipo ones are different.

Aftermarket torque converter?  Might need a higher idle setting.

Talking about the pull knob bracket?  If so, it gets mounted using the same hardware as the parking brake assembly.
