Put a 1983 small block in it and need a belt routing diagram. No air or PS, just alternator, Crank and WP pulleys.


Not sure what you are asking? If just the three pulleys, go around each in a big circle and use alternator adjustment to take up slack.

The 1966 Mustang convertible starts if jumped but not without. When turning the key it simply makes a clicking noise. Help!


Check the battery voltage, it should be 13.5V if it's fully charged. Charge it up if it's not and then try. When you have the car running check the alternater output to make sure it is properly charging the battery. This should also be about 13.5V.
It would also be a very good idea to make sure all your cable ends are bare shiny metal and fastened tight.
It's also possible you power cable to the starter is bad, or the ground strap from the engine.
I have occasionally seen where this has been caused by a faulty solenoid on the fender. If that is the case, then you should be able to short across it and start the engine.

Why do my headlights flicker off and on i own a 1966 mustang


Best guess would be corroded ground wire connections to body and maybe a bad regulator off of the alternator/generator. In that respect the power would not be constat from the charging system and the bad ground may make you lights flicker from no clean connection.

How do you install a fuel pump on to a 1966 mustang with a straight 6?


Apply sealer to both sides of the gasket and position it on the pump. Hold the pump in position on the mounting surface and make sure the rocker arm is hitting the cam eccentric. Hold the pump tight against the block and install the bolts. Tighten them alternately, hook up the fuel lines and start the engine to check for leaks. Hope this helps.

Im trying to hook up a 100 amp alt to a 68 mustang and the new alt only takes one wire. the problem is its not charging what am i doing wrong?


The one wire goes to the battery positive or positive on the solenoid. If this is right check your grounds, make sure the battery grounds to the body in the engine grounds to the body and the alternators grounded to the engine. If this is good take the battery and the alternator to an auto parts store to have it tested. These types of alternators have the voltage regulators inside them. Also make sure the belt is tight for the alternator. Good luck.
