Re: So ... wanna trade wheels ...

Cragars are cool... but I like the look of the slots you have on there.

Sorry, just commenting... I don't have any Cragars to swap with you.

Re: 70 XL suspension

This picture is from my 1966 Galaxie shop manual.

1970 is the exact same suspension design.

In fact, Ford used this same basic design from 1965 to the late 70's maybe even later....

He remembered the car, but is he familiar with the design of the front suspension?

NONE of the control arm (upper or lower) rubber mounted bushings are alignment adjustment points.

Re: 70 XL suspension

Yes, loosen all the control arm fasteners in the front that use rubber bushings.

Before tightening, move the car back and forth say, 3 meters or so on a level driveway to get the tires and...

Re: Ford Fairlane Forums

Ford production numbers (consecutive unit numbers) start at 100,001.
So the first Fairlane off the line would have consecutive unit number 100,001.
It would not necessarily have been a 390 GT...

Re: 1967 ford galaxie 500

Post pics of the car with marker lights, and pics of the harness to the lights.

AFAIK no North American 67 Galaxie came with side marker lights.

Is it possible the car is an export model?

Re: 70 XL suspension

I don't know what brand air shocks you have, but the Monroe Max Air kits say minimum 20 to 150 psi max.

Use whatever pressure (up to max) that gives the ride and height you desire.

Re: 70 XL suspension

Sounds like aftermarket air shock kit.

When you install the new front bushings,
if you tighten the control arm bolts with the car jacked up and the suspension "hanging"
this puts stress on the...

Re: '67 500 - Fair price?

These cars like to rust no matter the climate.

One critical area to check is the frame rails right behind the front wheels.

Water and dirt get kicked up into the holes that are in the bottom of...

Re: Newbie needs help

What do you mean by "lockdown linkage"?

Do you mean Kickdown linkage?

Ya, if the kickdown linkage is stuck down, it won't upshift.

Do you have good full manifold vacuum at the modulator?

Re: Newbie needs help

Here's a thought....

Perhaps your car was built with the aluminum Ford-O-Matic 2 speed trans, (used up to 64)

Re: Newbie needs help

Is your pan shaped like this?

If so, it is a Ford-O-Matic 2 spd.

Re: Newbie needs help

I assume you mean pan bolts.

How about a pic of the trans?
From underneath is fine.

Pic of the shift quadrant on the column or console?

Re: Where Is My T-10 Leaking From ???

The O-ring is towards the OUTSIDE of the pin.

I have worked on lots of T-10's and it always baffled me why they designed it that way.

I have seen many T-10's leak there.

You can pop the cap off and use a hose to raise the vent if needed.
