1971 Ford T-bird parts & problems
Hey there, I'm new to the forum here, and I just bought an old 1971 T-bird yesterday for 800 bucks. It's going to be a restoration project of mine. It drives fine, and sounds mean!
However, if I go hard on the pedal, I notice the transmission has a bit of a tough time getting into 2nd. This only happens sometimes.. I noticed that after driving around town for about 20-30min, the transmission shifts a lot smoother. Why is this? I've only got highschool mechanics training, so forgive me, my knowledge is quite limited.
Also, the rear springs are shot, so I am in need of some replacements. Can anybody forward me some good websites to order parts from?
