Time Flies !!! Mustang is Running Again…

Keller, TX – Last Saturday Brian and I changed the mechanical fuel pump in the Mustang.  We tracked the problem down after attempting to start the darn thing last summer and getting nowhere!  This year, we conducted some diagnostics and had high confidence the pump was kaput.  Sure enough, a shot of ether and boom!  The old 289 fired up and ran.  We quickly checked the horn, lights, tire pressure, and registration then headed off for state inspection which it passed!  Hard to believe it’s been 7 years since this little coupe has legally been on the road when Jason used it as a daily driver…next step, tune up as it is running very rough.  Brian got a chance to drive it for the first time – the non-synchro 1st gear, 3 speed truck tranny Ford put in this thing in 1966 was quite a difference from his modern day 6 speed Camaro trans!

Mustang Front Seat Reupholstery Project

Well, as promised we started the reupholstery project for the Mustang driver and passenger seats over Winter Break.  We previously ordered new OE style seat vinyl covers, seat foam, and seat frame which we determined during initial teardown.  We made good progress with the reassembly before the cold weather took over and we got stopped in our tracks until things warm up a bit.  We wanted to post our progress to date since we have uber documented this project with over 50 full color photos so far!  We encourage you to browse these photos complete with informative captions and play catch up to the project during our (hopefully) short hiatus.  Once we start up again we will add the finishing photos to this album.

Thought this lead photo of Brian looking bad on the newly completed seat bottom kicks the project off well….enjoy!
