Question about 1965 Ford Mustang

2 Answers

1965 mustang when you go about 10 mph my car darts left to right then at 20 mph you can not hold the car straight. the carlifts in the front, then it will not settle down then when you go down the road you can watch the right front tire start to roll in towards the center of the car. there are air shocks on the car when you raise the rear of the car it gets worse when you let the air out it gets better. there was a ball joint shim under the upper ball joint i removed that and also there was a camber shim under the upper control arm. i did remove all of the shims it did not change. ichecked all parts in the front end did change 1 upper ball joint and 1 outer tie rod.

Sounds almost like your front frame (Probably left side) is partially rusted through and flexing on you. Another thought is that some one has removed the stabilizer bar and never replaced it. Whatever, you definitely have some serious problems.
Hoe this helps!
Have a good and safe day!

What is the maximum speed of dodge dart 137 hp 1965

About 28 mph LOL. Just joking.

The listed top speed was 91 mph, but I wouldn't try doing that as the brakes and suspension, not to mention other safety features, were far below today's standards.

Need spark plug wiring diagram for 1965 ford

Try this. If the distributor is in the right way, the clips that hold the cap on should be just a hair off of 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock. #1 is positioned at 1 o'clock, which is at the firewall side of the distributor. The firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8and is counterclockwise from #1. The passenger's side is cylinders 1-2-3-4, from the front of the car. The driver's side is 5-6-7-8 from the front. Hope this will help.

The car is darting to the left and right.

Check wheel alignment and suspension system components. You'll need to seek a professional in alignment procedures for this one and the equipment necessary to complete it. Hyundai Service Centers are equipped with all the special tools/equipment to do this. It could simply be negative (-) front toe, or a combination of Camber and Caster measurements (cross Camber) adjustments. Hyundai Parts department stocks (or can order) Camber kits & Service can install them if this is where the problem is.
