Best Answer

A 1970 Ford has a external regulator It's probably possible to adjust one by ajusting the contact points inside the regulator and I'm assuming it has a older style regulator but I don't think it will do much good. Replace the regulator. Disconnect the battery hook up the regulator hook battery up and boom it's polarized.

What are the three bits of tape on the window regulator for in a 1970 Bug?

Alrighty then ... The three bits of tape originally held some felt like material that is meant to sit in between the window regulator and other parts of the inside of the window like the bar from the quarter window. It does this in order to create a buffer between the regulator and the other bits so as not to obstruct the path of the regulator. When the path is obstructed the regulator wont operate properly. Moral ... replace all worn exterior weather stripping !

Modern Harleys have an alternator that not only keeps the battery charged but also provides power for the lights, horn, etc. It works in conjunction with the voltage regulator which controls how much of the alternator's power goes to the battery and how much goes to accessories.

Can you install 1970 mustang door glass in a 1969 mustang?

It can be made to work, but you can't just put the door glass in. 1970 Mustang glass bolts to the metal bracket that goes up and down on the window regulator. 1969 glass is glued to the bracket, which is a nuisance. The bracket is a different shape as is the bottom of the glass. If you have the 1970 glass with the bracket, it will work on the 1969 window regulator. If you don't have the bracket, you'll have to find a used one if you want to use the 1970 glass. Search mustang-monthly on the web for a detailed writeup Old answer: most likely since most 70' mustangs were actually carry overs from 69' but double check the manual and measure because the fastback and the coupe have different doors. if it came out of a fast back and is going into a fastback it should work. likewise for the coupe.
