Need wiring diagram for 67 mustang

ok Ed I found you again and more info , your ignition is point, unless modified style,mallory is a hi out put ignition system ,that gives great spark control,=power goes to coil and is sent to distrubiter to the points to the rotor to the plug wires to spark plugs.NOW you can get any unit of wiring but not the whole car that would take 100 of pages ,or you go and buy a SHOP REPAIR MANUAL for about 125.00 or more what you can do is type in (images of wiring diagrams 1967 mustang (motor size) (and area you need ) ) like ignition ,blower motor,head lights, and look at site ,and lastly join a mustang car club online those guys EAT AND BREATH mustangs and can lead you to all the info you could ever want .

How do I change the fuel filter on a 67 buick electra?

Fuel filter could be clogged.Take line loose and turn engine over,see if gas comes thru.If it does and gas gets past fuel filter, the carb is probably clogged.If filter is in line at carb connection be careful when replacing so you do not strip the fittind when hooking it back up...your post said this car is a 1967

1967 ford mustang coil is getting so hot it turns of could this be from my points not gauged right? Plus at idle it sounds rough where do I start?? Help please

I would check voltage to the coil

It should be less than 12 volts

Iam a 1960's guy, but don't remember the exact voltage
There should be a resistor before the coil

Points are set to a specific gap or you use a dwell meter,
at least back in the day

The distributor needs to be on a clean surface ,so the points
& coil can ground out properly.

The idle could be valves,vacuum leaks,carb,any number of things

You may want a grounding strap from engine to body & sub frame

Check the alternator for AC Leakage (current ripple)

What are duel points on a 351 ford motor?

Dual points are usually a high performance application, and when they are set right they can provide your engine with a huge timing advance curve, as compared to a stock application. The points open and close sending a dwell signal to the ignition coil telling the coil when to fire the spark plug. They are a lot better performance wise, but they are also trickier to set properly. I can do it because I have set so many of them.

I just bought a new coil for my 65 Mustang and we have 12V at the positive and negative terminals but aslo only 12V at the High Tension or coil wire outlet. Any suggestions

couple of things
does the mustang have a ballest resisor fitted between the ign switch and the coil? in which case it should be a 9v coil or remove the ballest resistor to run a direct 12v feed from the ign switch, or just to test run a 12v feed direct from battery to coil.
the feed to the dissy is switched by the points opening unless you have electronic ignition,
but in both cases the capacitor/condenser may have broken down causing a consent feed hence given permenant live through the coil,
to test if you have points rotate engine so points are closed, put meter on coil and test if volts change when you open the points, or a spark out of ht to dissy lead
if electronic ign you will have to rotate engine or dissy to activate spark ,

I want to my electronic distributor to avacuum

Just buy one for an older model mustang like a 1970 302. you will also need a different ign coil and a resistor to drop the voltage to the points.

Car cuts out on acceleration

it sounds like the points are not opening enough. or to much timing. thats to far advanced timing. but points most likely good luck.

negative to the points, positive to the hot wire that goes to the firewall.
