Question about 1966 Ford Mustang

Open Question

I have a 1965 mustang that I parked about 10 years ago, when I parked it everthing worked fine. I recently started the car, and it needed transmision fluild and the car would not move. Now after four quarts of transmission fluid the car only moves forward in drive, BUT has no reverse. What could be the problem??

SOURCE: transmission shifting problems

If Drive Selector switch is properly aligned then a shift silonoid might be the problem.

SOURCE: 1999 F250 only goes in reverse, no forward gears.

I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.

Some of the Ford transmissions actually have an aluminum gear which will go out somewhere around 150 to 200 thousand miles. OR it could be really low on transmission fluid.

Readjust the band, I have ran into this same problem with another C-4.Found the reverse spool valve was sticking in the valve body. Hopes this helps.

1965 mustang starter fires but won't engage flywheel. it is a brand new starter


Doesn't matter. The forks inside the starter may be missing or broke off or bad spring in starter that pushes the gear out. Try new started. Starter may have to be shimmed to make contact with flywheel. Starter may be kicking out but not engaging flywheel.

How to change a vacuum advance on 1965 mustang? I've tried this but I do not see how you can remove the breaker plate. Looks like that needs to be removed to get the vacuum advance out. Any advise?


You should have two flat head screws that hold the breaker plate, one has a ground wire attached. Remove those and the breaker plate will spin so you can clear the link from the housing (that takes me back a year or two).

Make sure you were given the right plugs for the car (correct heat range) also check the choke plate after the car warms up to ensure the choke plate is all the way open.
