am in need of the location of the top resevior location for a 1987 mustang gt conv
the fluid for the pump is stored in the end of the pump...actually fluid from one side of the circuit is just pumped to the other side.. you will want to pick up at a parts or hardware store... at least one 5/16 inverted flair union.. and 2, 5/16 inverted flair plugs...this will allow you to play a neat shell game.. and when you remove one of the fittings from the side of the pump.. a union and one plug go on the line.. the other plug goes in the side of the pump.. then you remove the other line and move the plug from the union to the other side of the pump and connect the line to the union.. this will keep the fluid in the lines and in the pump.. saves you a LOT of mess bleeding the system later as it will drain if you don't seal the lines..
Good info Wayne, but just in case he's not aware of the location of the top motor/pump/reservoir...It is located directly behind the rear seat back. You can access it from the trunk by removing the trunk trim panels under the top stack/well liner, or you can remove the back seat.I usually take the time to remove the seat, as there is more working room. The seat bottom just lifts out/unclips from the floor, the seatback is held in with two 10mm or 11mm bolts in the lower extreme corners. Once the seat is out you'll see the pump, raise/lower relays, hydraulic lines, etc.HTH...Mark.
