I Looked back in my Hi-Po Mustang book and back on Line and these Plugs are tapered Plugs No Washers .


This is the Old# Spark Plug -> Autolite BF-32
(15-20 ft-lbs)

And the ones that Replace it today -> C0AF-12405-B Autolite 45, AP45, or APP45
Motorcraft BF42C


I bought the Autolite 45's I have seen a Lot of Mustang Guys do use that same # Spark Plug .

As for My Starter ? It was the wrong one . The Drive was to short . I sent it back good thing I did not try and mount it . I should get the Right one today . And I ordered some more Parts for My carb for that car . I just about have it Dialed in . And I have to say that 600 V/S is not to bad on top that 289 .

Tango Stang sounds good! Pretty tricky drivin and filmin at the same time!! LOL

The old Autolite BF-32's were my Ford V8 favorite. Those have been out of production a long time. The 45 is all they have now. Check the quality of them carefully. The last set I bought for the Cougar were made overseas and were quite inferior. I ended up cleaning the 8 USA made 45's and putting them back in the 390. Yes no crush washer on them either.

Car is looking and sounding sweet! Nice job!

I Finally ordered the steel Wheels for my car . I can't stand the ones that are on it . I never Liked that Type . I Looked far and wide for a Good set of used 14" Factory type ? I could not Find any . I was going to go with a set of 15" . But I want the car to Look more original and I am going to go with a Set of Mustang Hub Caps . I ordered 4 of these 14" 4" Back Spacing 6" Wide -> Many thanks to a Good Friend of mine that Helped me out with some $

I probably could I would need to pick up some valve stems . But still want to have them balanced . There is a used tire shop right around the corner . They do excellent work and for a Fair price . I most Likely will bring them there . I also need to buy some Factory type Lug Nuts . But this car is moving along nicely . Soon I should be running around town in it smile

Your moving right along with that TANG.. Plug wiring turned out nice. I,ve gone both ways on the tire facing.. I kinda like the white lettering tho. Its sporty look vs Muscle car look :) Keep the vids coming. Need to do a smoky before you put the new tires on :)

I started up the Mustang today and backed it out the garage . Had a slight problem with the accelerator pump from sitting but it's ok now . I really never had the chance to keep much fresh Fuel running through the Lines . I have drain the Gas Tank one time . Well I have come to a Point in My Life that I can start back working on this car and start driving it . Next is to remove the Clutch Equalizer bar and replace the worn bushings . I have them already might even do it Later today . Also going to up-grade to the 1967 dual chamber Brake Master cylinder . And get my Hub Caps sometime this year .

geezer hope one day you can see this car and also ride in it . Till then here's a Few photos from a Days work on it . I went to chance the Clutch Equalizer bar Bushings and found that the Equalizer bar was worn and cracked as well as the Equalizer body side mount . For now I did a bit of welding to the worn parts . Late on I will replace them . I just did not want to push the car back in the Garage that's something I just don't Like doing . The New parts together are about $75.00 Not bad . I am sure that body side mount was broken for some time judging by the wear . After putting it all back together it does work much easier now . Did another run Video of the car it's all dirty and getting more nicks and dings from just sitting in the garage . But I am not into show and shine cars so I Like it Like it is . Not a Bad car for a old Ford Ha-biggrin  COOL
