CARE OF TOP FABRIC
Proper care of the top material will reduce the possibility of water stains, mildew, or shrinkage. Do not stack the top if it is damp. Always use the convertible top vinyl boot to keep the top material clean, dry, and positioned when the top is stacked. The rear window slide fastener should be lubricated at least once a year with stainless stick lubricant. Use the top compartment behind the rear seat back only for storage of the top. The storage of other items not only interferes with the proper operation of the top, but may also damage or stain the top material. The vinyl top may be washed each time the car is washed. Clean the material with FoMoCo Interior Trim Cleaner and a scrub brush. Be sure to rinse the top thoroughly with clean water during and after washing. Do not use a cleaning material that is not recommended for vinyl material because damage to the top may result. The vinyl coating becomes tacky at approximately ISO.P. Therefore, when making paint repairs, be sure to protect the top material from heat.
DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING-POWER TOP
Refer to Wiring Diagram Manual Form 7795P-66 for locations of wiring harnesses.Schematics are shown in Group 22 of this manual. If the top cannot be lowered or raised satisfactorily, or if it fails to operate at all, and the trouble is not readily apparent, make the following mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic tests to find the cause of the trouble. Always check the battery before making any of the following checks. Table 1 shows symptoms and possible causesof trouble. MECHANICAL CHECKS 1. If the action of the top is slow, raise and lower it and look for bent or misaligned linkage. 2. If bindin2 is noted when clamping the top at the header, check the alignment of the door and the quarter windows with the side rail weatherstrips. Also check the top sag adjustment and toggle clamp adjustment. ELECTRICAL TESTS BATTERY CHARGE The battery charge should be determined before making any electrical checks because a partially discharged battery will causeslow motor and pump operation. CURRENT ORA W To check the current draw in the top operating circuit, disconnect the black wire at the circuit breaker (located on the starter relay), and connect an ammeter in series in the circuit. Operate the top control switch and note the ammeter readings. The current draw should be 28 amperes maximum operating. Current in excess of 75 amperes indicates a frozen pump or cylinder or a mechanical obstruction. Low amperage with the motor running and no top movement indicates a defective pump or low fluid level in the reservoir. TOP CONTROL SWITCH 1. Disconnect the wiring harness at the switch multiple connector located behind the instrument panel. 2. Connect one terminal of a test lamp to the black (feed) wire of the top control switch, and ground the

If the test lamp does not light, there is an open or short circuit between the battery and the switch or a bad circuit breaker. 3. If there is voltage to the switch, connect a jumper wire between the black (feed) wire and the red wire, and then between the black wire and the yellow wire. If the top motor operates, the switch is faulty and must be replaced. CIRCUIT BREAKER If there is no voltage at the top control switch, connect a jumper wire across the terminals of the circuit breaker (located on the starter relay) and operate the switch. If the top motor operates, the circuit breaker is faulty and must be replaced. If there is no voltage at the circuit breaker, check the black wire from the circuit breaker to the starter relay. SwrrCH-TO-MOTOR WIRES Disconnect the yellow and the red switch-to-motor leads at the junction block near the motor. Connect a 12volt test lamp between the yellow wire and a ground and check by operating the top control switch to raise the top. Connect the test lamp between the red wire and a ground, and check by operating the switch to lower the top. If the test lamp does not light in either case, the wire from the junction block to the switch is open or shorted. MOTOR Check the operation of the motor by connecting first one motor lead, and then the other, directly to the battery positive terminal. If the motor operates in either case, but will not operate when hooked into the wiring harness, check the wiring harness again for short or open circuits. If the motor will not work when hooked directly to the battery, check the black (ground) wire from the motor. If the motor still does not work, it must be replaced.

PART 18-3 - CONVERTIBLE TOP
If the movement of the piston rods are sluggish or uneven, check the hoses from the pump to the cylinders for kinks. If one piston rod moves slower than the other, the cylinder with the slower rod is defective and should be replaced.
If both rods move slowly, or do not move at all, disassembleand repair the pump.
ADJUSTMENTS AND LIGHT REPAIRS
Before aligning the top, visually determine if the trouble results from top misalignment and/ or window misalignment. It may be necessaryto align both the top and the windows because of the relationship between the two. Adjustments of the door and quarter windows must be checked and any necessary changes made before making top adjustments. These windows must be fully closed to insure proper top adjustment. Door window and quarter window adjustments are outlined in Part 17-3. COMET, FAIRLANE TOP ADJUSTMENTS Refer to Fig. 1 for the following Comet and Fairlane top adjustments: 1. Loosen screw and washer assemblies item A and adjust the bracket item B (part of top Assembly), inboard or outboard to obtain the 0.30-inch clearance dimension between the rear side rail and belt side moulding. The bracket must be adjusted and secured in the vertical position. Tighten the screw and washer assemblies (views Hand J). 2. Loosen nut item C and rotate cam pin item D to obtain the 0.50inch parallel dimension between the rails and door glass and between the rear rail and quarter glass. The cam pin must not be rotated more than 90° either side of the mean adjustment mark on the rail. Hold the cam pin item D and tighten the nut item C (views C and K). If the dowel item E does not line up with the sun visor bracket dowel hole on a fore and aft line, the top cloth is to be removed from the No. I bow. Loosen two screws, item F and adjust the No.1 bow fore or aft to position the dowel. Tighten the screws, item F. The top cloth is then retacked and cemented (views B and D). 3. Loosen the nut item G and adjust the dowel item E inboard or outboard to center the dowel into the sun visor bracket dowel hole. Tighten nut item G (view E). 4. Maintain a proper design relationship between the No.1 bow and the header, loosen set screw item H and rotate hook item J in or out. Tighten the set screw item H (view E). 5. If interference is encountered between the top cloth and top of the door glass frame when the door is opened, the No.2 bow and/or No. 3 bow can be adjusted by loosening the nuts items K and L and raising the bows. After the adjustment, tighten the nuts items K and L (views F and G). 6. To maintain the correct design relationship between rails and glass, the set screw item W must be backed out (view A). 7. Operate the folding top assembly one complete cycle and recheck the alignment as indicated in steps I through 7. 8. With the top assembly in the down position, locate the strikers item M on the rail-folding top center side, opposite the clamp assembly item N. Secure the striker to the rail. Loosen two screws item P and adjust the clamp assembly up or down to insure proper hold-down effort on the striker. After adjustment, tighten screws item P (view L). MUSTANG TOP ADJUSTMENTS SIDE RAIL WEATHERSTRIPS ADJUSTMENT The rear and center side rail weatherstrips are adjustable fore and aft to provide a good seal at the break joints. The front weatherstrip is not adjustable. 1. Lock the top assembly to the windshield header. 2. Trim the rear edge of the front top side rail weatherstrip flush with the rear end of the front side rail to obtain a water tight seal at point X (Fig. 2). 3. Adjust the rear side rail weatherstrip to provide a water tight seal at the joint (Fig. 2), and tighten the weatherstrip retaining nuts. LATERAL ADJUSTMENT This adjustment shifts the top assembly sidewise to obtain a good fit between the rear side rail and the quarter outside rear side belt mouldinlZ. 1. Loosen the screws which retain the main pivot bracket to its support (Fig. 3). 2. Shift the main pivot bracket toward either side as necessary to obtain the proper clearance (%2 inch) between the rear side rail and the quarter outside rear side belt mouldings and tighten the retaining screws. INTERMEDIATE SIDE RAIL ADJUSTMENT This adjustment moves the top as. sembly to obtain a good fit between the top assemblyand the side window glass line. 1. With the door glass properly adjusted, loosen the eccentric nut (View B, Fig. 4), and rotate the eccentric pin to obtain a 318 -inch parallel dimension between the front door glass and the front and center side rails. 2. Hold the eccentric pin to prevent it from turning, and tighten the eccentric nut. The main balance link marking and washer pointer is an average dimension of adjustment. Rotation of the eccentric will raise or lower the side rails to obtain the correct design-height dimension between the side rails and the glass. BALANCE LINK ADJUSTMENT The balance link is retained to the intermediate side rail assembly with an eccentric pin (Fig. 4, View B). Rotation of the eccentric pin raises or lowers the side rail over the door glass area. Clearance between the glass frame and side rail is % inch constant. TOGGLE CLAMP ADJUSTMENT The toggle clamps that hold the No. I bow against the header can be adjusted to provide a good seal. 1. To determine which side is not sealing, check the weatherstrip between the No. I bow and the header with a 3 x 5-inch card. A reasonable pull must be felt as the card is pulled out. Both toggle clamps need not be adjusted unless necessary. 2. Releasethe toggle clamps (Fig. 5), loosen the Allen screw, and thread the to~~le hook in or out until
