If you have not gotten a response by Friday let me know.  I have a 70 Mach 1 with empty engine bay at the moment and can get a picture and measurement this weekend if you need it.

On my 69 there is no hole in the firewall.  Leaves the cabin just above the dimmer switch.  Goes thru the torque box and the frame rail to the fixed/welded bracket and spring assembly.  69 Shop Manual pg. 02-01-04  Brian

Yes - sorry you are correct. Must have been the late hour

removed it so as not to confuse the subject further

That picture is exactly what i needed.To  my 18 year olds credit he figured it out earlier we hooked it up earlier today.That picture is exactly the way we have it.I ran it through wrong hole earlier.Thanks guys one more problem solved.I put a battery in it today the new motor spins over .I was worried it would not spin over that is one tight motor.I will never ever buy a car in a box again getting this car back to stock has cost alot of money.I got my power steering all hooked up today to. That has been a night mare to.Still waiting on my fan i bought from a member on here.the first fan he sent me was bent he offered to send me a better one but he is out of town right now.thanks again Wes

Looks like you got everything you need, the pictures I took mimic the earlier post exiting around the dimmer switch, along with the same routing under the car.
