  1. S197 Clunking/rattling sound when accelerating and turning right?

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Alright I have been chasing the cause of this noise since I got the car 5 years ago. The noise started showing up when I would be turning right with the car in 3rd gear at about 1800rpm. If I were to push the clutch in, the noise would go away. If I revved the engine to ~1800 rpm in neutral...

  5. 1966 Coupe Steering Question

    Classic Tech
    Howdy, I am a bit (actually a lot) confused about something. At the different parts sites, I see them differentiating between V8 steering and 6 cyl steering. I don't understand what the engine size has to do with the steering. I would think that they are independent. My 66 coupe project...

    Classic Tech
    Hello all. I've started to try and diagnose where the steering play is coming from on my coupe. While I'm sure there are other parts worn out, the first thing I came across was massive play in the connection between the pitman arm and control valve. The pitman arm moves a good 1/2" before the...
