  2. 1969 iL six coupe dipstick oil level

    Classic Talk
    I am new to Fords and have a question about oil level as measured by the dipstick. When this car measures low and I add oil it seems as though it takes a lot of oil to bring it to the top line. In other words,on most dipsticks the distance between the lines usually represents one quart, so its...
  3. 1969 coupe dome light

    Classic Talk
    Sorry for the simple question. My 1969 coupe came without a dome light fixture. I put a bulb in the socket and it worked fine (though I was surprised at how hot that bulb got), so I ordered a fixture, which came as a chrome base, plastic lens, and two screws. In order to attach this, it looks as...

    I have seen YouTube videos of heater core replacement on a 1969 Mustang. My car has never been restored and it has factory in-dash air conditioning. I understand it requires the complete removal of the dash. My question is, how difficult is this for a rank amateur, and, other than the heater...

    Classic Tech
    Alright guys, I'm in the place that I know many people have been in while thinking of doing an engine swap. Do I go with the late model 302 or a 351w from a 94+ truck.

  13. 302 New vs Old advantages?

    Classic Tech
    Hey guys, I know taking the 302 out of the foxbodies and building them up to put in the classics is very popular. My question is why? What makes the 302 out of a fox body better than the original 302. They are both rated the same HP, so why do people prefer to build up the foxbody 302s rather...
