Re: Fidgety brake light switch

I've done the power brake conversion and switched pedals, and I ordered the power brake switch. Why only one side washer?

Re: Fidgety brake light switch

I did the Scott Drake switch and the three bushings from WCCC. Now the new switch keeps getting stuck on. The brake lights ran my battery dead in the parking lot at work Friday. I lubricated it and thought it was ok, but then after our club meet Saturday my wife went into the garage and said the bra...

Re: Fidgety brake light switch

I just ordered a new switch, bushing and washers from WCCC. I may try to shim a little piece of cardstock or something between the back edge of the rod and the front edge of the switch to tigthen it up enough to work to get to our club meeting Saturday.

Fidgety brake light switch

I did a power disc brake upgrade last year and swapped out the pedal and brake light switch when I did it. Got flagged down yesterday and told I have no brake lights. I jumpered the plug, and the brake light circuit works fine. If I push up or down on the back end of the brake light switch, it activ...

Re: Mustang Unlimited HUGE sale (GOB)

I bought the front and rear valance panels (they were still in stock separately, just not as a pair), and a set of red 67 seat covers. I still need to order the seat foam from WCCC, but with the money I saved on the seat covers, maybe I can get a dash pad too -- finish up my entire interior makeover.

Re: Hesitation with light throttle, popping on decelleration

Has anyone told you guys how incredibly smart you are lately? It was a stretched vacuum cap on the carburetor. They had both looked fine when I inspected them previously, but I went and bought some fresh ones tonight just to make sure. Problem solved. I really appreciate it when you guys point me ba...

Re: Differential oil change - pulling axles

Don't forget the friction modifier if you have a limited slip

Hesitation with light throttle, popping on decelleration

67 with a 302, 4b Holley and AOD. Car was running great, then I was checking things over under the hood before our club cruise, and I noticed the bracket that had been holding the ignition coil to the fender had come loose, and the coil was just hanging by the wires. I found a new bolt to mount it b...

Here's a video from our recent club cruise in Clear Lake, Texas. We had four cars participate.

Re: Serpentine Belt Conversion?

I did the kit from CVF Racing. It worked really well, but be aware you lose space between the engine and radiator.
