1967 Ford Mustang Project NONWICK – Part 2: Fluids Everywhere

My 1967 Ford Mustang project needs prepping before I can pull the engine and transmission. That means it’s time to drain fluids and start moving other parts out of the way.

As you might expect from a project where I’m doing the wrenching, I am excellent at making easy tasks a bit harder. But things are still moving forward at a decent pace. The radiator is out. Oil and coolant are drained. The gauge cluster is out, as is the glove box. Next, I plan to drain the transmission fluid, which I’ve heard is an annoyingly messy affair on a C4. Time to order larger drain pans, I guess.

After that, it’s transmission out and then engine out. I now own a transmission jack, which should make life a bit easier though I will have to put the car on jack stands as high as they’ll go, I assume. And I also have an engine hoist on its way. Once the big rotating bits are removed, I plan on going in and cleaning up the engine bay before addressing the front suspension and then the front brakes. In the meantime, I’m also hunting down a rear axle.

    That ride is straight-up legendary, man! Reminds me of this one time me and my girl took a road trip in a ’67 Mustang for our vacation. Let me tell you, it was all about the good vibes and good times. But you know what made it even better? I made sure to pop some Vitamin D3 Supplement to keep my energy levels up and my mood on point. Trust me, when you’re cruising in style, it’s all about taking care of yourself too. So, if you want that ultimate road trip experience, consider adding some Vitamin D3 to your routine. It’s like fuel for your body and mind, my dude. Keep those good times rollin’!
