Car definitely needs some tlc. Going tomorrow to get a battery and starter solonoid. Also the car has to be jumped by bypassing the solonoid. Its a good start on it though. What is the best repair manual to get in your opinion?

Honestly not Haynes. I've used them for all my dd cars in the past, but the first gen mustang one is pretty bad.

I'm buying a set of shop manuals. I've flipped through them, and really seem indispensable.

Tbh i never used a manual. But thats just me these cars are pretty straight forward in how the go together and come apart. But id go with a Haynes if i were to get one. Also youtube is a great place too

Awesome, thanks guys. Okay, so another question... When the engine is revved high coolant and water comes out the top of the radiator. Haha. Does that mean I need a new radiator or just a cap for it?

It comes out from where the cap is. Could possible be a bad seal. But I'm wondering if its missing an overflow tank or something. Just has a cap and a small length if rubber tubing coming off it with a large bolt inside of it Haha.

Oh btw. The engine was built by the owner of Winston Raceway off I-35 apparently. Engine seems very tight in this car though. So its believable.

I dont believe the cars had over flow bottles just a tube well at least that was how my car was when i bought it. I know its a silly question but is the cap on all the way? And does it just come out all the time or just when its hot?

The cap has two settings turn it till it clicks then press it down and turn it again it should seat. There are no over flow tanks on these cars just a rubber hose take the bolt out of it.

If it take the bolt out it will shoot all over the engine. If the cap is sealed will it not do that?

The bolt was used to stop it form doing it's job of letting it build up pressure and if it overbuilt it then let it release thru the hose. It may spray on the engine if there is a problem. The cap should allow the pressure to build up to a certain pressure to keep the coolant from boiling. If the cap and everything is working correctly then it should not come out the hose.

Okay, i will take the bolt out and doublecheck the cap and get back to you in a bit.

The shifter connecting rod is slotted. So maybe it's loose or out of adjustment like wale easy mentioned. . It's an easy check underneath.
