1971 Mach-1 help identify parts?
#1
I'm not technical. My Mach is being restored... But was hit in the front. My mechanic needs some parts... And I only have the following vague descriptions.

1) Cross-frame between wheels under motor
2) Connects between struts

Help?

I sure wish I could... I always ask for the same. The Mach is remote from me and the "old-timer" does not use the internet. Sorry.

Sounds like he is looking for a front crossmember.

Also your car doesn't have "struts". Makes me a little concerned it that is the description he gave you. It has shocks and coil springs.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

Warned you that I wasn't mechanical! Big Grin

Going back to my scratchy-notes... And to clarify... I/he needs two different parts. I also wrote something about spring-towers? One of these "things" runs between the wheels... And the other runs front to back.

Any better?

But it does have front strut rods, that tie the lower control arms to the front of the chassis.

Let me check your shorts!

Under the engine and from shock tower to shock tower (probably what he is calling strut towers) would be the front suspension number 2 cross member. And of course no longer available from Ford. This part can be sourced from a 70-73 Mustang or a 70-71 Torino.
There is another front cross member, but that one is at the very front of the vehicle almost under the radiator. There is a rod that runs from each lower suspension arm to that cross member. And that one is now being reproduced and available new. Used ones can also be sourced from 71-73 Mustang's or 70-71 Torino's. Site member and vender Don (Ohio Mustang Supply) would be a good place to start. Hope this helps a little!! Smile

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

If your looking for the cross member that's below the engine and attaches to the shock towers I have nice clean California one.

The 2nd pic is the front strut cross member.
