ESS cars should have the ralley gauges (tach) so it will have the 71-78 dash pad.  You are going to want to purchase a 71-78 cap for your ESS.

Reeves1- You are correct, replacement windshields have the same part number (same replacement PPG part) for all Pintos, BUT, the 71-72 (and maybe the 73?) have a slightly larger windshield that you can't seem to find anywhere unless you find a NOS item. I found out the hard way when I replaced mine...

Battery tray removal-the bolt at the bottom
« on: June 30, 2010, 10:46:12 PM »
79 with 2.3l. The exhaust pipe is hitting this bolt. Do I have to remove the exhaust first? Engine is coming out, so that will be happening anyway, but just curious. I did try prying on the exhaust a bit, but didn't have much success.
Thanks,
Russ

Missing a sane owner. I have gotten rid of the 2.3L stuff and will be going V8.
Now has an 8inch Pinto/MustangII rear waiting to be installed. And missing the spare tire well.

I've removed it once. I had to have my brother hold the bolt still with an open end wrench from the engine side while I removed the bolt from the wheel side then jam the bolt out by pushing it around until it fell out. I don't think I put it back in because it was so hard to get out.

Thanks. Guess I will just wait until I pull the engine this weekend.
Going to be getting frustrated enough, no use adding to it by doing something that will be easier later.
