My 66 mustang pops when I turn it right. I think


ball joints are your problem, but also have your tie rods checked. if you can move your tie rods with your hand they need to be replaced. check your balljoints by lifting your car and grabbing a front wheel and moving it up and down if you feel slack, replace balljoints as soon as possible, as it is dangerous to drive in that condition.

The first suggestion is to replace the tie rods. In most cases where there is alot of play and a popping sound when the wheel is turned is because the inner parts of the tie rods are worn through and should be replaced as soon as possible. You could lose control easily if the tie rod pops out completely.
There are inner and outer tie rod ends which keep the wheel in a straight line while attached to the axle. Tie rod ends can be found on the inside of the wheel and are attatched to a longer metal bar which allows tight steering by controling the path of the wheels. The tie rod ends themselves look of a ratchet, with the handle end being threaded.

66 Mustang- 289 V8- has an intermittent surge and rattling noise


Sounds like crappy gas. The 289 may not like pump no-lead and the rattling sound you are hearing may be pinging / knocking.

1967 ford mustang 289, 4bbl engine has been rebuilt/ w performance camshaft. will not idle correctly . carb has been changed , ignition has been updated , wires cap points and rotor ? checked for vacuum...


hesitating when from a standing start, then running well can be caused by having too big a jet size. I dropped the size of the jets on my Holley 4V, and it solved that part of the problem. The accelerator pump will push in too much gas, momentarily "drowning"the engine til you get enuff air to mix with the gas.
