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 windstream.

Service Instructions
Italias use the following Ford parts:
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 1/2", complete with bellhousing and clutch linkage.

DRIVESHAFT; Ford shortened to 23 1/2" (600 mm) yoke center to center.
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.
 
Front Suspension
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 car.
 
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 shaft.
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 serration’s used to correct wheel position.
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 worked loose.
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 bolting.
Check wheel alignment after any repairs.
 
Rear Suspension
Rear axle lateral location relative to the chassis can be varied by lengthening or shortening the Panhard rod.
 
Steering
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 play.
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 serration’s 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.
 
Clutch Adjustment
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.
 
Hydraulic Brakes
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 out.
 
Handbrake
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.
 
Air Conditioning
Compressor                  Tecumseh HG 500
Electromagnetic clutch     6" diameter Warner Electric
Dehydrator filter          Parker
Hoses                       Stratoflex
Thermostat                  GE medium length bulb
Fan switch                  Arkless
Fan belt                    A 41 length
 
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.
 
Fuses
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.
 
The large 6 fuse block contains:
1. 16 amp - horn, 4-way emergency flasher.
2. 16 amp - courtesy lights, door lights, cigarette lighter,
3. 16 amp - all functions under key (A/C, heater fan, windshield washers, turn indicators, instruments, stop lights),
4. 8 amp - headlights, high beam left and right.
5. 8 amp - headlights, low beams; one left, one right.
6. 8 amp - headlights, low beams; one left, one right.
 
The small 4 fuse block contains:
1. 40 amp - electric windows, one left, one right.
2. 40 amp - electric windows, one left, one right.
3. 8 amp - front left position light and side marker with rear right
