Heating and air conditioning
The high capacity fresh air
heater mounted under the dash is controlled by the air control lever, the fan switch, the
temperature lever and the "R" knob mounted on the central console. The air
control lever(blue arrow) regulates the amount of outside air coming into the car. With
the air control lever on maximum aperture, the fan switch on, and the "R" knob
pulled out, maximum ventilation is obtained. Moving the temperature lever (red arrow) to
maximum allows water to circulate in the heater core, and with the fan switched on
provides various degrees of warm air. Pushing the "R" lever in directs all air
to the windshield for defrosting.
Air conditioning is controlled
by two knobs located on the driver's side air conditioning duct. The left, four position
knob controls fan speed, while the right knob is a thermostat regulating the temp. The
green light monitors the compressor operation. Generally, the setting of the thermostat
should not be constantly changed. It should be left in maximum cold position only for city
or slow traffic driving in hot weather. For highway operation it should be set about half
way, so that the compressor is allowed to cycle (will turn on and off frequently).
Otherwise water condensation formed on the evaporator core will freeze and obstruct
passage of air, manifesting itself by the volume of air decreasing. Should this happen,
lower the thermostat setting so that frozen condensation can melt and drain. Direct the
nozzles to distribute air as desired.
Electric Windshield Washer
Located under the hood on the firewall on the driver's side, it should not be operated
without water or fluid; it could be damaged. Add antifreeze or methyl alcohol in freezing
weather. To correct aim, loosen screw on nozzle. Adjust, compensating for force of

ENGINE; 351 cid V8 4V, complete
with alternator, voltage regulator, starter, starter relay, carb, gas pump, water pump,
exhaust manifolds, accelerator cable, speedometer cable, fan, air cleaner, engine mounts,
and radiator complete with hoses.
CLUTCH: Borg and Beck 11

TRANSMISSION; Ford 4 speed
close-ratio manual transmission complete with shift linkage and lever, and transmission
mount; or. Ford C-6 with sport shift.
DRIVESHAFT; Ford shortened to

REAR AXLE: Ford modified to
accommodate disc brakes and IM rear susp., complete with carrier and half shafts. For all
service operations refer to Ford Mustang shop manual.
The front suspension is
independent, by top A-arm, bottom arm with compliance strut, coil springs with telescopic
shock absorbers, and anti-roll bar.
Front wheel alignment:
Castor 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 degrees
Camber 0 to 1/2 degree positive
Toe-in 1/8 to 3/16 inches
All values are for unloaded
Caster is adjusted by shinning
the top A-arm shaft (small adjustments) or by shortening or lengthening the bottom
compliance strut. By removing shims from the front bolt of the top A-arm shaft or adding
shims to the rear, caster is decreased. Camber is adjusted by shimming the top A-arm
Toe-in is adjusted by rotating
the connecting arm sleeve of the tie-rod, after the clamp bolts have been loosened.
Adjustment must be done after alignment of all four wheels has been accomplished. Tie-rod
linkages center to center should not vary more than +/- 1/8" (3mm). Should a larger
difference be necessary to center the steering wheel, the double jointed steering column
must be disassembled at the top U-joint and the serrations used to correct wheel
After wheel- alignment and
anytime that a rubbing noise is observed in the front suspension, the spring tower to
shock absorber spring plate clearance must be checked; minimum clearance is 1/2".
Other noises may be caused by faulty compliance rubbers or a top arm inner bushing having
Loss of directional stability,
especially under high speed braking conditions may be due to worn lower suspension arm
inner bushings. Periodically, top and bottom ball joints should be checked for possible
wear (greasing is important- every 6000 miles). By jacking the front of the car up so that
the wheel is off the ground and then shaking the wheel in the vertical direction, any
slack in the bail joints will be easily detected. However, it is a good idea to tighten
the wheel bearings first. Upper ball joints can be changed without dismounting the A-arm
from the car by unscrewing the ball joint after the tack welds have been ground off. Make
sure to tack
weld the new ball joint after
tightening it thoroughly.
Lower ball joints should be
replaced by dismounting the arm from the chassis, drilling out the rivets holding the ball
joint, and bolting the new ball joint in place with the special high tensile bolts
supplied. It is recommended that the bottom ball joint be tack welded in place after
Check wheel alignment after any
Rear axle lateral location
relative to the chassis can be varied by lengthening or shortening the Panhard rod.
Check tie-rods for wear.
Adjustment of the steering rack is accomplished by tightening or loosening the two set
screws found on top of the rack, after their counter-nuts have been loosened. To judge the
adjustment, steer all the way to one lock and shake the extremities of the rack up and
down. If a considerable movement accompanied by clunking noises is observed the set screws
are to be tightened until all noise is eliminated, while still retaining a minimum of
If steering feels lumpy and
uneven throughout the steering wheel's 360 degrees of rotation, the steady bearing may be
at fault and should be replaced. To do so, the steering column has to be disconnected at
the flexible rubber coupling above and on the serrations below the aluminum bearing
support, and the bearing support removed from the chassis. After two pins are driven out
of the U- joint yoke, the bearing can be replaced.
The clutch linkage is of the
mechanical type, acting on the clutch throwout bearing by means of a series of levers, and
the equalizer bar. All parts, with the exception of the clutch pedal are of Ford
manufacture. The over center spring has been eliminated to increase feel. Clutch pedal
travel should be adjusted to give at least 7- total travel. Clutch pedal free play is
1/4". It is adjusted by loosening the release lever rod lock nut and moving the
clutch release lever rearward until the release bearing lightly contacts the clutch
pressure plate release fingers* Adjust the adapter length until the adapter seats in the
indentation provided on the release lever. Insert a feeler gauge 0.128" thick
(0.325mm) against the back face of the rod adapter, then tighten the lock nut fingers
tight against the gauge. Remove the feeler gauge, hold the lock nut in position and
tighten the adapter against the nut. Check pedal free play with transmission in neutral
and the engine at 3000 rpm.
The hydraulic twin circuit four
wheel disc brake system uses Girling calipers. The system makes use of a vacuum booster
with 2.78:1 boost ratio and a pressure limiting valve mounted in the rear brake circuit,
to minimize rear wheel lockup on hard braking; and a pressure warning light valve.
Check pads regularly for wear
(every 6000 miles); replace when 1/4" (6mm) or less in thickness. Changing is easily
accomplished by extracting the pad holding pins.
System bleeding to eliminate
air from the lines is best started at the right rear wheel and working around. To center
the brake pressure warning system piston, bleed one circuit until the warning light goes
The handbrake is incorporated
in the rear calipers. The operating cable is adjusted with the handbrake lever in the off
position with both rear wheels jacked off the ground:
l. Make sure all pivot points
are well oiled and free in action.
2. Tighten adjusting nuts on
the rear calipers to correct for pad wear, making sure that there is at least 1/16"
(1.5mm) clearance between the pad and the disc on either side.
3. Slack between the two brakes
is then taken up by the center adjustment in such a way that the equalizer will be
parallel to the center line of the chassis when both brakes are on.
4. Adjust handbrake lever
travel with the adjustment found underneath the handbrake lever bracket.

Loss of cooling efficiency is
usually due to loss of Freon 12 refrigerant from the system due to a small leak. To see
that the system is partially discharged, look through the glass window on top of the
dehydrator cartridge, located on the wheel well, passenger side. If there are any air
bubbles visible when the A/C is functioning(engine running) the leak must be located and
the system evacuated and recharged. It is a good practice to make sure that the evaporator
drain tubes are not plugged.
There are 11 fuses in the
Italia. One is a flying fuse on a wire that takes current to the steering column switch
assembly. It requires a 16 amp fuse. The other 10 fuses are located in two fuse blocks in
the top of the glove compartment, and can be changed by undoing the flap and unscrewing
their respective covers.
