    I am having an issue with the charging system in my '67 (302 - engine is from a '68). Brief History: -The car sat for a number of years ... just over a year ago we had a lot fixed, including a new alternator, battery, and voltage regulator. -I have been driving it almost every day for the past...

    So I think the quick question to this is does a +5vDC constant (vs. factory +5vDC pulsing voltage regulator) work for the factory gauges on a 67 mustang fastback? Background: I swapped my factory +5vdc pulsing voltage regulator to a homemade +5vdc fixed voltage regulator w/cap inline (found...

    Hello All, I had some electrical issues on this classic pony; changed the alternator and high voltage regulator out; and it solved a lot of the issues, however the C/D gauge on the instrument cluster is still fluctuating a bit too much for me. In looking further, the 'original' wiring...

    Hi, I have some strange electrical issues with my 1965 Mustang Convertible that I would like to get some help with. The alternator lamp never lits when I turn on the ignition. It remains unlit all the time. I replaced the bulb several times but it never lits. I also measured the voltage to...

    I just bought my 84 mustang and found out that either the alternator or the voltage regulator are bad, I tested the battery to eliminate that possibility. would you suggest am parts or going to ford and getting the oem parts? If AM then what brand?

    Hello forums. I have a 92 2.3l N/A mustang and i developed a problem with the charging needle or maybe charging system yesterday. The car turns on just fine and after a couple of seconds of running, the car starts to have an erratic rev. The charging needle on the cluster fluctuates quite a...

    I have a 1965 fastback that is in show quality condition. The one thing I can't seem to figure out is why the lights dim when I rev the engine. The headlights, dash and other interior lights dim. I put in a new battery with 800 cold cranking amps. The altenator appears shows as good. Is my...

    I have a 1984 Mustang GLX, 5.0 HO carbed, 5 speed convertible. I can't get it to charge the battery. It has an externally regulated alternator. When I disconnect the clip from the regulator and full field it by jumping A and F, it charges at 14.x. The field wire has continuity to ground. The A...

I know the parts look physically the same but I wasnt sure if they functioned identical ( in terms of voltage output ) PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF ANYBODY HAS AN IDEA! I FOUND A PART AND...

    So I recently took out my stang for a drive and noticed the problem. I was driving down the street and notice that all my gauges(temp,gas,and oil) all were reading passed the full mark, way to the right. Last time I took out the car a month ago, they worked fine. So what could be the problem? Is...

    The NEW Instrument Voltage Regulator (IVR), which is located on the back of the instrument cluster, died shortly after we connected the gauges on the 66. All of the gauges went full scale when the key was turned on. Rather than buy another one for 50 dollars I ran to Radio Shack and purchased...

    Maybe it's just because my head is tired of following wires, but I seem to be dumb when it comes to Ford wiring. No gauges work. CVR number 1 Got 12 volts to one side (left looking at back of gauge cluster) and solid test light Volts flicker on opposite side, but get a constant test light...

    I have a 1966 mustang with a V-8. Almost all wiring is original except an after-market tach that works fine, a CD player that works fine. I was having issues with the battery not holding a charge so i replaced the battery cables and needed a new alternator. When i started my mustang everything...
