Last Update on this for about a week or so....................

We are away on Hollibobs at the weekend and a Mechanic we know has taken Shitestang away to sort the brakes ready for our return ;)

We came out to talk to the Mechanic to be greeted by this!

He said leave it its Lucky you know................................

Err Ok?

32630773_2028733077453723_19898832633420

Then this happened!

Shitestang under its own steam on the Queens Highway!



Its been a tough couple of months and I really need a break from it so this gives me that break and when I return home it will stop as well as go!

Thanks for all the support guys,I will return ;)


To Be Continued..........................................................

Update from my Mechanic............

Brake Check Valve replaced and the brakes are acceptable for MOT Purposes but he has said it really needs a new servo.

Car was loosing Engine Vacuum ( I hadnt noticed! opps!)

Needs heater valve replacing,I have it so popping it around to him

He has retreived the wiper motor fuse (it had gone) so thats ready to go

Theres also a fan clutch that was put on lobsided as the previous guy had missed washers out of it :(

And the kick down rod was hitting the rear of one of the heads so he had made up a plate so it will clear it ;)

He said he will update me Sunday as its at his place so hes going to work on it over the weekend ;)

Yanks are so good for replacement parts aren’t they! If that was a Capri or something you’d have to try to find good used ones.

Good news though Jo. Your mechanic sounds like a good bloke if he’s doing over the weekend for you!

Ive ordered this one

prevIMGbig.png
503201-RIT__ra_t.jpg
nextIMGbig.png
£62.60 £9.97 £72.57


 

 

The Master Cylinder is OK he said but theres only £7 difference and he is bleeding the brakes anyhow so might as well do the whole thing then ive got new seals as well ;)

Just need to get the heater sorted and the dashboard lights working and it can be road legal then ;)

OK doesnt need the lights and heater but you need the heater for demisting duties and dash lights to drive at night  ;)

Its getting Close ;)

Thanks Phil

I think he has one for it but extras will be handy :)

All the other vales are fairly easy to find here in the UK just not the 4 or 6 amps :(

Saw that last week,tis rather nice :)

Mercury Capri is basically a Fox Stang but has a different nose cone and later versions had a different hatch too.

Fox Mustangs have no problems in the states they have a great following over there less so here :(

Have to admit though I would like to see more Foxes too here though my first love will always be the Mustang II

Despite me supposedly having a break from the car I have more and more updates

Mechanic been looking at it again today The wipers refuse to park and everytime the motor is switched off it blows a fuse :(

Put another fuse in it works perfectly until you turn off the motor which blows another fuse :(

Any thoughts or ideas?

On a Happier note the heater flaps were all seized solid as was the blower motor and he has unseized both and we now have a working heater ;)

Only thing stumping him is why it blows wiper fuses everytime you turn off the wipers?

Why would they blow on turn off doesnt make any sense?

Short in the parking circuit? I'm not sure if that'd make sense in the wiring though.

I had wondered this I had also noted that the park switch didnt look strait when closed?

Cannot help but wonder if its worth trying with no park switch connected?

When I bench tested it here on a Jumpstarter I could hear the park switch opening and closing but as its inside couldnt actually see what it was doing?

Might suggest he tries running it without the park wire?

If it stops doing it then thats obviously tripping it....................................

Why would they blow on turn off doesnt make any sense?

 

When you turn off the wiper, electrickery is still being fed to the parking circuit, otherwise it wouldn't park.

Once the wiper parks, i.e. disappears underneath the bonnet, it strikes an interrupter and the electrickery is truly switched off.

In this case, I suspect that it doesn't interrupt properly, but grounds it out, thus puts juice to earth and blows the fuse.

So I guess disconnecting Park,ok it wont park but power shouldnt feed back if its not joined to owt?

So what is the Magic Interupter,where is it what is it doesnt it have a name and a Jaunty Haircut?

20180518_172821.jpg

This bit. It does connect the black/pink wire to ground once it closes- if it's touching the red wire section anywhere once it closes it'll pop the fuse.

Or if they've hacked it then it may be connected wrong and that explains

In the meantime disconnect the red wire to the motor and it shouldn't pop the fuse, it just won't self park.

You know when the motor is just not connected to a power source at all should you get continuity between the Black and Red?

Wont disconnecting the black do the same thing?

Its a bit harder to didconnect the red at the motor end and disconnecting the red at switch end cuts all the power to the motor :(

Only when it isn't parked. In the park position no, the red and black/pink should be disconnected from each other and the black/pink should be connected to ground.

Only if the issue is in the wiring harness to the car, disconnecting the black/pink would show if the problem is inside the motor.
With the black/pink disconnected if it blows the fuse when it reaches the park position and you switch the switch off its connecting the red feed to ground

Edit: thinking about how it's wired, disconnect wiper motor at the plug going to it.
Ignition on, wiper switch selected to OFF. Measure for voltage between battery - (ground, vehicle body) and the black/pink wire going to the harness. If there's voltage there then that's the problem, the wiring needs to be traced back and corrected.
Might save a few fuses checking that first.

Actually thinking on I remember after making my lead up I checked continuity with the power disconnected between the socket where the wiper switch connects and the corresponding pins on the plug that plug into the wiper motor plug.

And the Black and Red showed no continuity between each other but I do recall that the Red and Black at the motor had continuity.....................

At first I thought it strange but remembered Black was park not ground so thought it was normal?

Then when I opened it up saw the red and black were going to the same area so thought that might be as expected?

Not so sure now?

Might end up needing a new motor afterall :(
