Does 1966 mustang 289 have self adjusting valves?


If it's a "K" code hi-po 289, then it has solid lifters and the valve clearance is adjustable. If a standard 289, then it has hydraulic lifters which are zero clearance and self adjusting, i.e. there is no adjusting screw on the rocker arm.

How to install fan shield


You must remove the fan first, then slide the shroud over the front of the engine, you may have to use a bungee cord to keep it out of the way while you reinstall the fan. Then mount the shroud to the radiator mount. Check all clearances between the fan and the shroud. If they contact, you'll be replacing not only the fan and shroud but also the water pump since you'll damage the front shaft seal.

Does my Mustang have a low gear?


the C4 automatic transmission is a 3 speed transmission, it shifts by hydraulic pressure controlled by a governor and actuators, I would check your linkage to see that it is hooked up correctly to allow movement through all range selections, disconnect the linkage at the trans and see how many detents you feel while moving the lever back and forth, make sure to chock your vehicle as moving the lever from Park may cause the car to move. Let me know what you find, hope this helps
