#1

Post by Mike_B_SVT » 02 Nov 2018, 00:08

November is here. Time to put the toys away for the year and start planning out those winter projects. Place some parts orders, pull some stuff apart for rebuild and repairs, clean up and prep for paint, etc, etc. Ok, I'm ready for spring to come around again.

If you know of an Eliminator for sale or are looking for an Eliminator, please feel free to post here, or contact me. I'll do my best to help you find the Eliminator you are looking for, or help find a new home for your Eliminator, if possible. Send me a PM or email me directly at: EliminatorSearch@CougarClub.org

Also, be sure to check out the Eliminator Owners and Enthusiast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/473220306059769/

Story of engine not starting likely due to vandalism to wiring system... this sounds like a nightmare to solve. Wouldn't there be an easy way to by-pass the electric system to see if it cranks? Would your guess be that this car will require an entire re-wiring job?

Having never done anything like a re-wire I imagine it is extremely difficult to do and trouble shoot bugs out.

The current owner told me that they jumped around the starter solenoid and it cranked. He also told me that they had been soaking the cylinders with oil. I don't know what the auction house or the previous owners might have done to try and start it.

Either way, something sitting this long and neglected would likely require a tear-down. Or at least scope the bores and see what's what.

This would actually be a fairly easy job. If the original wiring harness is hacked up beyond repair all you need to do is to purchase a used replacement harness section. For an Eliminator that would be the same as an XR-7 wiring harness. And if all that needs replaced is the under hood section that job could easily be completed in an afternoon. If you want a little more insurance before doing the job send the replacement harness to someone like Midlife, a member here, and have him go over the harness prior to installing it.

Back to Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale - this time with the numbers-matching drivetrain installed! SEMO Mustang spent the last 2 years or so sorting out the drivetrain and putting the numbers matching block and transmission back into the car.

Are the shock tower braces supposed to be gray? I wish they would put estimates on them.

There continues to be some debate on this subject but in 1970, slop gray was known to be used on some under hood components like the shock tower braces, the hood latch support brace and the vertical pieces holding up the brace. Slop grey varies from a lighter gray as shown on this Eliminator to a dark greenish gray to almost black. Personally, I don't think the lighter gray is as accurate as the darker colors and have never seen an original with that light of a color.
