The person who couldn't figure out his left signal light being constantly on. I am told that was an option on those cars just to indicate which side that your gas filler is on. I've seen that on 3 or 4 fords in my day. John.
I recently bought a LTD for 300 dollars it did not run when I bought it, but a couple of hours,8 new spark plugs, new alternator, battery, 6 quarts of oil, and a fan belt later it runs great future plans are installing a Edelbrock performance 4v intake manifold and Edelbrock 4 barrel performance carburetor. Also in the works is a Crane Powermax Cam and a new Auto Meter Gauge Cluster for my speedometer, tachometer, and fule to air ratio, but overall it is a good car, for the price.
My 77 LTD II's turn signal illuminates as well. BUt the fuel tank is on the left, and the right one comes on.
I just purchased a 1978 LTD Country Squire, today, for 200 bucks! Actually, the guy let me pay 100, and take it home, and I'll pay the other 100 in 2 weeks. The car is in amazing condition, the interior is astounding, except for the carpet, and the armrests... all of em. 1 is completely missing, but the seats are perfect, except for 1 rip on the drivers seat, and the vinyl headliner is immaculate. It has a 351M and, although it's a little shaky, it runs. Outside is decent, except for the right rear, where it looks as if someone forgot they were in a behemoth. No rust!! Any help in where I can get a panel for the rear would be greatly appreciated.Thanks, Chris firstname.lastname@example.org.
I had a car I think is was my ltd when the light stayed on it meant that a bulb was burned out. Because that fixed my problem.
I had a 1977 Ford LTD Country Squire wagon with the left and right signal on the dash would dim a bit, even if the "blinker" wasn't on. What I found, it was my front bulb sockets for the signal bulbs. There was a lot of corrosion inside, making a weak ground for it. I went to NAPA and got new sockets and the "dim" signals went away. Hope this helps.
To the guy with the blinker problem.. I have a 77 Ltd Landau 4 door in storage with 73000 miles... it was the cornering lamp with a bad socket that caused the steady turn signal light to glow.. check your lights and the sockets.. especially in the front areas, depending on what side it is on!
I have a 1977 LTD Ford station wagon, which I bought brand new in 1977. It is jade green and is still gorgeous. I drive it all the time, but I cannot get the air conditioner to work. You can hear the motor running, but it barely and I mean barely, blows any air. Does anyone know where the fan for the air conditioner might be?
