If this is an automatic transmission, the pan must be removed in order for the fluid to drain. In addition, there may be a plug in the torque converter to facilitate fluid removal from it. When removing the pan for a fluid change, the standard procedure is to remove all but a few of the bolts holding the pan on, leaving several at opposite corners finger-tight. When ready with a pan in place to catch the fluid, these are carefully removed in turn, allowing the pan to drop down at one corner, draining the fluid. Once most of the pouring has stopped, the few remaining bolts are slowly removed, allowing removal of the pan and access to the filter. NOTE: If all you need to do is drain a small amount of fluid due to overfill, it may be possible to use a length of tubing fed down through the filler tube and siphon it out. jb
In the fluid chamber
If it's a manual 4 speed 289, 3 1/2 pints
Ford automatics of that era use Type F fluid. Incidently, so does the power steering unit.
Automatic transmission fluid
I am new to owning a 65 Mustang, but I am 99% certain it is because you are low on transmission fluid. This happened to me just recently, and as soon as I put in transmission fluid (it turned out there was a leak), it stopped doing that.
6 degrees BTDC with manual transmission 12 degrees BTDC with automatic transmission
You add transmission fluid at the exact same place you check the fluid level. Do not overfill!
6 degrees BTDC - manual transmission 12 degrees BTDC - automatic transmission
Use Ford Type F fluid.
1 way to tell a 1964 Mustang from a 1965 Mustang is to look under the hood the 1964 relied on a generator and the 1965 had an alternator.
you forgot to plug in the brake fluid sensor.
Type F transmission fluid unless it's been rebuilt. Then it would be Dexron III or whatever fluid the builder recommended. Mine it was Dexron III
Do NOT use transmission fluid in your power steering. It is designed for automatic transmissions, and a few rare manual transmissions only. (1965 Plymouth "Slant Six" manual transmission used automatic transmission fluid). In most Chrysler products made after about 2002, ATF is what they use for power steering fluid.
1965 Ford Mustang 170 cid, Spark plug gap, .034. Points gap, .025. Dwell, 37-42. With standard transmission, timing is 6 degrees BTDC. With automatic transmission, timing is 12 degrees BTDC.
ATF - made especially for Ford trannys Use Type F in 60's era automatic transmissions. The power steering system uses the same stuff BTW.
Shelby Mustang was created in 1965.
A 1965 Shelby Mustang , 289 V8 , was rated at 306 BHP
Where do the ball checks & accelerating pump discharge weight go on the lower body of a 1- v carburetor for 1965 mustang 6cyl with automatic transmission
Using the right types of fluid in a car will help maintain the car's running life time. A 1965 Ford Ranchero takes universal ATF.
I believe that is ( 6 degrees BTDC for a manual transmission ) and ( 12 degrees BTDC for an automatic transmission ) on a 1965 Ford Mustang 200 straight 6 cylinder
