Parts that need to be reproduced

#1

Post by 427XR7 »

I know there was a prior thread on this topic. I can't seem to find it and it may have been started on the "old country" forum. Anyway....

How about reproducing the 67-70 FE manual transmission bell housing? The one with the giant 'Z". They're silly money and sell instantly when listed. Seems like an easy casting to do.

A complete under dash harness would be nice, I talked to Vic about it a few years ago. At the time it was cost prohibitive for me to have it done, but maybe other would like one as well.

It would be close to $2000 for that harness and someday when all the $600 looms are gone we will have to cross that bridge.

Don,
I remember the cost being in that price range.

Bob,
I have a grade A one on my shelf right now, it's the third one I have had to buy since I have owned my car. First two burned up from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. I have one left over, traded the other one to someone who need parts. Thanks for the information about getting one re-done, I saw posts for him after the last fire, I will definitely reach out to him if I need another one.

Paul

The previous owner cut up the wire harness to install 2 computer fans as the "defroster" and other lights, radio. He had removed all of the A/C components, heater, etc. so when I started my renovations, I somehow ended up shorting out the harness causing the first fire. The second time was after I had updated to the pertronix setup, the coil caused the tach wiring to get extremely hot. I disconnected the coil to start troubleshooting and ended up knocking my circuit tester prong into the fuse box, which caused the second fire.

How about a XR7 4 speed console top pad? They make the complete 1967 Mustang console new, seems like it would be easy to do just a top pad for Cougars...
