I'm leaning towards your TFI module on the Dizzy. They get hot from engine and are a known issue by ford. I included a picture of what the TFI or ignition module looks like in your Stang. Be sure to tell the store clerk if you have a auto or manual when you purchase one Good Luck Ryan MN

Why won't my '66 Mustang start with the ignition switch in start position?


Change your ignition key module and that will fix the problem. Problems with key modules can be attributed to the weight of the owners key ring. Some people have massive key rings with all sorts of gadgets on them causing them to become very heavy. This puts an unexpected load on the key module and the load can double with it swinging from side to side ect... Best advise, keep the key ring simple and light.

How do I change an Ignition on a 1988 Ford Mustang GT Automatic Transmission


Not exactly sure when Ford changed the style. But I think it is this one. First of all do you have the key thet fits the lock cylinder you are changing? If so, put the key in and turn it to the run position. If this is the style I'm thinking about there will be a small hole in the column cover under the lock cylinder. A small allen wrench works fine. Push in with allen wrench and at the same time pull out on lock cylinder. (you may have to turn key alittle one way or the other to release pin.) If you don't have the key for this lock cylinder it will be EXTREMELY difficult to remove. Hope this is helpful .
