Fixing time, waiting for a new starter the old one I think origional has a dead spot. The electric fuel pump keeps making a bunch of weird noise when I start the engine, so I'm going back to a mechanical pump. And my new glass came in for the drivers door, I'll try real hard not to screw it up this time.

Those old 440 Mopar starters are famous for that Dozer.
Good luck on the glass.

The Glass will be okay if I don't do STUPID again.

I got all the fuel lines from the tank to the mechanical fuel pump replaced with 3/8 stainless and then new 5/16 back to the fuel pressure regulator. When I had the electric pump there would never be any retained pressure in the fuel system, meaning I had to crank and crank to get the engine started. Now with the mechanical pump there is 6 psi still in the reg the next morning and she fires almost instantly.

Glass is installed, that polyurethane is a B$%^H what a job getting the broken glass out, the new one went in with silicone. Park brake is installed and working. $120. 99-04 Mustang handle and the cables for my diff. Countless hours of imagineering and 10 hours of fabrication just so the guy doing my safety can pull the handle once.
