NO. there will be 4 bolts under each seat, pull the seat all the way forward and remove the rear 2 bolts at each end of the seat track, then push the seat all the way back and remove the 2 front bolts.

If you've got a 65 Mustang in perfect condition, don't worry about the cost. The car's worth more than you think! I'd find a classic car club to jion and ask other members who they trust. Many of them won't answer but a few will. Otherwise, check your local BBB for car repair shops with good ratings.

All I can suggest is to go backwards through what you did. Look for the part that seems wrong or out of place. It could be something as simple as a mounting or bolt in the wrong place. Or even something fitted the wrong way around.

Sounds like it could be. It's not big enough for an inline fuse, is it? I recall seeing those glass fuses that could be rated at 30 amps, so that could do the same job as a fusible link. And going from the accessory post to the wiper switch is odd without a fuse link or an inline fuse that protects the circuit. Generally, the accessory post wires are directed to the fuse block first before going to the circuits.
I'm doing a little rewiring myself on a friend's '51 Chevy (rustbucket) car. It appears there are only 2 fuses standard on this old thing. The wiring was pretty simple back then. How many on your '65 ford?

200 cid 6 cylinder: dwell 35 to 38 degrees, point gap .024 - .026, initial timing: 6 btdc for manual, 12 btdc for automatic. You'll need a semi-decent dwell/tach - something in the 25 to 30 buck range should do nicely. Good luck.

About 6.5 hours to do the job. Times their labor rate. Buy a flywheel. I can guaranty yours will be bad. Weather is or not.

You most likely have air the brake lines. You need to bleed the brake lines to restore pedal height.

Recheck timing. Get #1 cylinder to top dead center on the compression stroke. Make sure the timing mark on the balancer is where it should be. Then pull the cap and make sure the rotor button is pointing to the #1 wire on the cap.

backfiring is ignition of the fuel mixture while an inlet valve is still open. Check firing order as there may be a HT lead crossed . If it backfires then the mixture is burnt in the inlet manifold so there is nothing left for the cylinders so it will stall. If you are running holley carby then check the power valve for a hole in the diaphram Check for vacuum leaks. check ignition timing is correct and not too far advanced. if the HT leads are touching each other this will induce a spark in the wrong cylinder --use lead spacers from an auto spares shop
