        I Have Hit The Mother Lode!!

        While looking for some more "how to" manuals to create on a web page, I found these! Some of you Squarebird Forum Old Timers have probably seen these before, but please bear with us "Newbies"! First, Alexander said this is a pic of someone's '59 with a swingaway steering wheel, and a roof flipper. It is to bad Ford did not think about this for the Squarebirds! Then, for those of you who want to protect your hood and keep people from getting into it, check out this hood lock! More pix as I find them!

            Thank you for those comments, Dan. They are much appreciated! Penelope just told me in email that his '59 has one of those hood locks on it and it works fine! I don't know whose Tbird that is, or where they got the lock. It is something someone picked up aftermarket apparently, but it does the trick, according to Bill!

                I have just added the 1960 Power Brake & Power Steering Technical Tip to the Technical Resource Library. Check it out! Remember, that in many cases, and not all, that any repairs like this for the 1960, might also work on the 1958's & 1959's. They probably will, but there are some differences between the '60 Tbirds and it's forerunners. I think I am going to add the Tech Service manual for '58 Tbird Convertibles next. That should also apply to the '59's but probably not much to the '60's, because that was a horse of another color when it comes to that top. So ya'll tell me!

                  I have just added the 1960 AC Service Technician Manual to the Fortune City Technical Resource Library. Click on the link below to see it. You might want to print these little booklets out for safekeeping and ease of use.

                    I have just added the 1958 Convertible Top Adjustments manual to the Technical Resource Library. It might also help you with your '59 top, but probably not the '60 top because of the changes made that year. But you can check it out. Click on the TRL link below.

                      I have found two templates for the temperature gauge for our Squarebirds on the CD. One is blank and the other is marked as to where the needle should be indicating for certain temperatures. I do not know why Alexander did not include them in the fuel and temperature adjustment Tech Tip, but I just did. Click on the link below to see them.

                        Tara, you are posting in the wrong thread. These comments should be posted in your own thread that you created, or the one that I created for you.
