Suspension / rear spring saddle bushings
« Last post by Stangly on May 25, 2017, 08:16:42 PM »
Noticed in the chassis assembly manual (69) two U-shaped pads that go between the axle and the spring and the spring and the shock mounting bracket. I found them online and they are called "spring saddle bushings" by White Line for years 65-73. The AM shows for all cougar and body style 65E ex 428. Are these typically found on cars and if so has it been typically the cougars and coupes. Thanks in advance and everybody have a great memorial day weekend.

Thanks for checking this out.

I'm looking to purchase a '65 convertible. The air cleaner and valve covers are gold in that normal?

Thanks in advance!
1964 1/2 - 1966 / 65 Convertible Window Alignment

The driver side window on my convertible does not line up with the rear quarter window like it does on the passenger side (pics of alignment for both sides shown).

How can I adjust the window to get it aligned correctly?

If you Google 67 fold down rear seat ID a guy by the name of Sam Griffith did a very nice web page of all of the parts and many pics.

Looks like ECS does not want to reproduce the tag right now since mine is the only example and they are basing there product on only one unrestored car. I told them they need have a range as there were three plants and running changes. So I said I would find more and send an example in. So if you have a coupe or fastback with backup lights and an orange tag. Post a picture
Tom Cherry use to have a pages showing all the differences/details related to these air cleaners and other 429CJ ones also. Think its still up but don't current have the link handy.  There are allot of fakes and incorrect ones that are always offered so make sure you know the right features, details and what to check so that any purchase can be an informed one making both the seller and buyer equally happy with the deal reached

A quick search showed that the numbers checkout for 67 panels. I suspect the AW and RW relater to color and I was wondering if you have different colored panels (just out interest).

The parts were cast all the same color so don't think the engineering numbers reflected the color they would later be painted. Just my opinion at this point as I don't one of each color (would be a bunch of them)  to compare numbers of at this moment

There appears to be a lot of "poetic license" corrections in a 50 year plus life of not being restored. I went thru a similar "unrestored" 66 Hardtop several years back that had only 25 years of "poetic license". Good luck.
1971 - 1973 / Original engine belts ?
« Last post by kammertime on May 25, 2017, 02:55:53 PM »
I recently purchased a 73 conv and the po gave me the following belts that he claimed are original to the car; all are Motorcraft.

The car is a Q code with air and power steering.




All 3 have the same code "AU173" .   Is this a date code ?

Could they be original to the car ?
