got to remove this without cutting it up
got the harness removed went ahead and cut the injector wires i left the rest alone my buddy probably wont ever use
proper way to remove a/c lines........ cut off wheel
just got to unbolt motor mounts
Im taking a break to run errands my flywheel has not showed up or my motor mounts so im running to junkyard real fast then autozone to get some cleaning supplies
FYI, save your AC condenser and its special bracket holding it to the support at the bottom. Those work much better than the 302 condenser, which has to attach to the V8 radiator. I've not done it myself yet, just know Tim and others have. Everyone hates the V8 condenser mounting, so the V6 version is a welcome improvement.
Well i couldnt get to where i wanted to be i lost the motor mount brackets and my lady wanted me to go out for my bday i did make it pretty far. Ill start again at 4am heres some photos
got her unbolted and ready to pull
almost got her out forgot to unplug the oil level sensor
for not being very old and a reman this thing was in bad shape
pretty ugly down there all the fluids were leaking. It was at this time i couldnt find the brackets...
i sprayed it all down with gunk cleaning gel its sitting overnight. I already found some brackets im going to pick them up at my buddys house here soon thats the only thing holding me up i was pretty excited to get the motor and wiring done today no worries ill be back at it dark and early
Painted my oil pan before i left nothing too great atleast its not yellow anymore...
O also i wont be using ac getting rid of all that all i need is 4 windows and a highway
I couldnt get her done yet still dont have the trans jack back yet its getting pretty annoying so heres where im ar
oil pan on and ready.. yes this is a mustang oil pan i ordered a 4x4 pan and they sent wrong one so i sent it back and they sent the wrong one again! So im just using this one for now i will have to dent it a little bit
plugs are in ready to go
this is my temporary bypass for the rear of the intake not pretty as i keep saying right now i just want it in and running ill upgrade later plus this was free compared to buying parts for it
trying to get the tps on the carb ill be honest i had no idea how to get the choke cap back on had to make a call
i think i did it right ill find out when i hook it all up and turn the key
heres a old starter i found for a 302 i have another ford starter that does not fit so im doing a swap on the housing
thats much better if it dont work ill buy a starter i just was curious to see if this would work
getting ready to go in. I cant use that oil filter i put it on so i could add oil spin the pump and get some oil flow for a few minutes the motor has been sitting awhile so ive been lubing it as much as possible since ive had it. Now that filter wont fit its too large ill add a oil filter relocation kit. Ford and their giant oil filters sheesh
