I have them too. The R clip you have in there will work fine.

Don't worry too much about the washer, Ford have a tendency to use VERY generic pics in their manuals.
But I am sure that wave washer is available at your local Ford dealer as the AU Falcon still uses the same method.

I found this pic of another ford that has the pin setup like mine, I assume mine is safe like this and won't fall out? I don't want to have no brakes!

I'll fit a washer later, I may have to pull it out yet to adjust it as it is very sensitive, it comes on as soon as you move the pedal 1mm. I'll bleed the brakes first and see how it is.

Thanks Nuts, a bargain! Bought a pack of R clips today for $7 at Supercrap. Welcome back to the cold!

The clip was very hard to fit with the column in place, do you remove the column outer to make it easier (as one post I found said you do)? I'm lucky I have the seats out at the moment which makes it easier to lie under the dash but it was still a painful process.

No easier, just fit it in place, I always have done them with the column in.

Coming on soon as you touch the pedal is correct, same as any car.

The R clip is fine, no need to change it or worry about it.

The switch needs to be sensative, it actually comes on before the brakes. If you replace it, be aware there are several different ones available.
There are differences between power disc, manual and power drums etc.

Also the Australian version is mirror reverse of the Mustang one (pins opposite side)

You are a font of knowledge Kerry as always!

I sent you a pm about why you suggested strengthening the floor (as the factory did in later models) when you go from a spearstick column to a collapsible, but it makes sense when you think about it. The load from the steering wheel to the steering box was previously carried by a solid shaft. Once you introduce a flex joint above the steering box, the load is moved up and carried at the floor so that area needs strengthening.

Fired up my new 351 motor this week with Nuts, it was beautiful to hear it running after being off the road for 18 months!

It's a lot louder than the old motor with the same exhaust! I suppose it's pumping about twice as much air with a bigger motor and headers. I'm upgrading the crush bend 2.25 to 2.5 welded mandrel bends which will flow even more but I'll be using triple flow mufflers which my exhaust builder said should still have reasonable flow but will quieten it down a lot. If it's still noisy, I'll use the trick I used last-time to get it through rego.

Bought my tyres online, 3 day delivery to a local tyre fitter (fitting was included as disposal of the old tyres). Saved $46 per tyre because they had 19% off and an extra 20% off for Fathers day. Saved $180 all up.

Had a good two weeks - bled all the brakes, fired her up for the first time, fitted the new front coils and shocks, filled the diff, just waiting for the mags to turn up this week.

I wired up a brakelight switch to my car for safety. It is located on the proportioning valve in the pic below, separate to the master cylinder. I bled the brakes, but when I fired up the motor, I pumped the brakes a couple of times and the light came on, now it stays on? Any ideas?

Yeah this has come up recently.
More fluid has gone in one direction than the other when you used the brakes, so the valve has moved off centre which turns the light on. You might need to crack a bleed nipple on one end and slowly depress the pedal until the light goes off, then close the nipple. The question is which end? I would guess that more fluid moved to the rears, so crack the front, but that's just a guess.
Try cracking the fronts and if the light doesn't go out, try the rears.
