Restoration / Re: 68 purple wire w/yellow stripe under dash

Neutral safety is just purple IIRC.  Look at the AIM in the wiring section to see if there is any purple/yellow.  PPL is just purple.

What am I looking for? Thanks

Hopefully the phone number to FAST to see if they have any suggestions.  I would start with looking at the wiring.  If you don't feel comfortable with messing with it then I would suggest seeking out a reputable shop in your area.

I did not use the spacers when I installed the pair in my old 67.  Only thing I could think of was for vibration but that is just a guess.  What's even more odd is they call out only using 2 in the upper attachments.

They must be adding a dye to it.

They do. 

Mild Modifications / Re: Radiator for vintage air? Stock or aluminum?
« on: June 01, 2018, 12:53:49 AM »
Age old debate.  They both have their pros and cons.

A little searching and you could make an educated decision.  Factory required at least a 3 row radiator when A/C was added.  If your stock radiator is 2 row then go ahead and upgrade to aluminum 3 row since originality isn't a concern.  If you are running a stock fan & clutch and are still concerned with overheating then add an electric fan.  But 190-195F is normal operating range.  Hell newer cars with aluminum engines run even hotter but that is also partially due to emissions and the ability of its sensor monitoring system.

Just to pile onto this.  For those that insist on using the original looking mount; what I have done in the past (which I done to my previous 69) was to drill, countersink and tap the 2 halves of the mount.  I know, I know..  "Then it isn't original!!"  But at least it'll have the appearance of originality once installed.  My personal preference is using solid mounts on the engine and a rubber on the trans.

Correct.  Dealer installed was the closest you could get.  Never factory installed.

FWIW - Search function = passenger side mirror.
