Our 73 Mach1

With factory wiring it will not run with the tach unhooked as the power runs through the tach. A jumper plug can be made on the harness side. If an aftermarket tach was run, then usually it will not be powered this way.

Nice progress on your car

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Valve cover and rocker arm PMCS today. Was quit pleased how it all looked upon removing the valve covers.

Valve covers are done. I like the new Ford engine blue vs the old. Got the instrument cluster apart. Everything always worked but the trip. Got that working after some cleaning. I've got one speedo light and one fuel light that work. Bulbs look good. Going to try to steel wool the connects first before spending the $70 for a new circuit. All new LEDS will go in except for the blinkers. I've read too many problem with LEDS there unless someone has some advice on why there is a problem with LED blinker lights. Then the housing will get painted white to further aid in nightime illumination.

Just a word of caution for those other members that might be doing this. I also took the cluster apart, polished the lens and was wiping the face of the speedo and tach down with some Windex. It removed the lettering on the trip meter and the brake warning light, sucks. You cannot just change them them are riveted in place. So I just put it all back together, just a driver. But for someone trying to make a show winner be careful when cleaning the instrument faces.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Nice progress on your car. I agree, the valve train area looks pretty clean.

So this happened... A slight delay on rebuilding my insteument cluster. There was a mouse nest above the tach. Over the decades the urine corroded the bolt that goes in this hole. The head snapped off removing the tach. Vise grips, files, drills, and extractors later proved to do nothing. The bolt was too far gone. So some grinding and it's out. This metal rod is the exact diameter as the hole minus the threads. JB Weld, sand and file to orignal shape, remove the rod, and back in business.[Image: e1f8315d75d4c50f9e3e3654b7d07ce5.jpg][Image: 2042a46c1dd40a715008427d71d40122.jpg]

Word to the wise on the above post. I've learned from experience. If you ever have to do this, dip the rod or piece you need to remove after curing in melted candle wax, bees wax, etc. This way it comes out vs. becoming the latest addition to what you were trying to fix.

Thanks!

What do you all think? Leave black with a silver ring or paint them whit too?

The faces of the instruments will still be black. I think it will make for a nice transition to leave then alone. Then another part of me thinks it would look sharp to paint them white.[Image: ca27642fe177af3f4e862cc5fad42892.jpg]
