Tech Torque Pre 1973 / 69 sill moulds
« Last post by paulb on Yesterday at 08:48:09 PM »
Hi all, anyone tell me if any of the repo sill  moulds for a 69 mach1 actually fit properly? Have some convex ones but they donít follow the front guard lip like original ones

I hadn't started the car for about a month when this first happened. Could that have been the cause, if the battery was down a bit?

Thanks Pete. I have replaced the solinoid a while back so it seams exactly what you are saying. Do I need an auto electrician or is this something I can attempt. I'm not great on electrics and relays are a bit of an unknown. Cheers Coops

Tech Torque Pre 1973 / Re: KYB Gas Adjust Shocks - 66 Coupe

I thought that the KYBs exerted too much control over the front springs, not allowing them to respond to small bumps making the ride a bit jarring when I didn't think it should be. The front end seemed too stiff overall for my taste.
So I swapped in a set of Gabriel Guardians which I bought via eBay for around $125 delivered IIRC, just thought I'd try those in lieu of the KYBs following a comment I'd picked up on on this forum. And I'm quite happy thus far.
On back I just have Monroes, can't recall what type.

which shocks did you go go to 67FBGT? I've also noticed the KYB shocks a little stiff and bouncy for me however I did fit them in conjunction with a set of brand new 4 leaf springs a yr ago which might just still be settling. Also Im the only one in the car 99% of the time so no weight in the back apart from a tank of fuel.

Galpin Ford built 1967 Coupe Parade car with a Rumble Seat and Sunroof.



I think they also called this "the mother in law seat"

To each his own! I did the opposite, finding that the KYBs up front were just too firm for my liking and substituting a different and softer brand.   :cheers:

Tech Torque Pre 1973 / KYB Gas Adjust Shocks - 66 Coupe
« Last post by Micks66coupe on January 24, 2021, 07:02:33 PM »
Jiffy had a set of the KYB shocks for sale on the forum but I wasn't quick enough, however it did prompt me to do some online research and the KYB Gas Adjust shocks sounded perfect for our coupe. Picked up set on Ebay for $299 plus postage, I fitted them today and they have made a noticeable difference. I know there are plenty of gas shock alternatives on the market but for our needs these KYB's will suit us, didn't realise how soft the existing shocks were until we changed them over.

Many thanks for your replies.

Finally got them in, had to be a custom fit,
Timed 1-2mm of the edges, applied WD40,
Pushed from the top back and forth, they slipped in.

Thanks
Woz
