Yesterday, Sunday, I did a lot of my weekly shopping errands, including a stop at the auto parts store for several items to continue the progress with the Pinto. The most spendy of which was a new battery that will actually go into my daily driver Caballero. It is a dual top and side post battery. The Caballero uses side post, and the current battery is dual top and side with a bad side connection, so I will move it over to the Pinto as a top post. I bought a pump that fits quart sized oil bottles to fill the stick shift transmission, antifreeze, more small and medium hose clamps, spark plugs, points. Need to visit a different store to get the condenser, cap, and rotor. They weren't in stock yesterday. I was able to get the valve cover bolted into place and the spark plugs installed before the rain started falling, so I packed the tools away and went indoors.

Fuel sending unit arrived on Thursday, installed the same evening. I finalized the location for the electric fuel pump, and got it installed today, plumbed the fuel lines, and ran an extension to the wiring through a hole and grommet into the cavity below the back seat. I will run power to the pump later. I vacuumed the interior of 25 years of dust/debris. I received a box of PDR (paintless dent removal) tools yesterday, now to get busy watching YouTube videos on how to use them properly. I think that I will practice first on the Taurus, it has a simple dent in the front fender from a parking lot hit and run incident a couple years back.

Lol on the flex seal Pinto. I have some fiberglass drywall tape maybe that will work place on the inside then coat it.

It will be interesting to see how the Flex Seal hold up. why do I see an image of Phil Swift spraying a Pinto with Flex Seal and driving it across a lake. LOL You might consider model aircraft fiberglass with Flex Seal applied as a possibility for the holes in the boots. Maybe it is something that can also be 3D printed? There are a number of "rubbery" plastics available.

I tried to get my son who is very well versed in CAD/CAM and 3D printing to make cluster housings, but he wasn't interested. One thing to be concerned about is the plastic type used to do the print. The interior of a car can get hot and that might be sagging, drooping issue with the wrong filament.

That said, I wish you all the best. This is something a long time coming to the Pinto community. There is also a cluster housing needed for the three pod gauge cluster that was option on some models. They were made of the same suspect plastic.

My 77 crumbled i kept all the pieces going to try to glue them together. Other parts of it are intact. I want to try my hand at making a 3d model file of it so it could be 3d printed by anyone for free. My brother got a 3D printer a few months ago so will have to try my hand at this.

Ok an update have only done some small stuff. I got the driver's spring readjusted was not in the bottom grove properly and got the upper n lower ball joint connected to the spindle. Then just clean n primed and undercoated the lower radiator support. Also sprayed flex seal on my hood hinge boots. Drivers boot was in good shape no rips. passengers boot is alot worse them a big split. I got both cleaned n coated l got 2 coats on both but will have to work with the passenger one to get the crack sealed. But this is my update incase anyone was wondering.

Well the Spectra F80A is listed as being for the 75-76 Pinto and the 74-76 Mustang II so not sure if the 74 Pinto tank is different from the 75 or different from the 74 Mustang II tank. Sounds like you have a usable original but if issues arise could try the F80A( or have your tank restored). Let us know if the sending unit works out.
