      Bought a motor to swap into a non-Explorer, and the water pump pulley was missing. Looks like these are way different than the Mustang pulleys. All the ones in the local JY will take hours to extract--hoping someone has one lying around.

      An RX-7?! Where’s your build thread?

      I’m sure someone will have a part for you lying around.

      5.0 swaps are somewhat common on 1st gen RX-7s... you flip the engine crossmember around, add a Mustang oil pan with some cheap mounts from Granny's Speed Shop, and the motor is supposed to drop right in. Spoiler: it doesn't... the left head is so close to the firewall I couldn't get the valve cover on during my test fit.

      I'm not too concerned about that, but engine management is the big question. I'll attempt building a Speeduino (uses TunerStudio like MegaSquirt, but cheaper). Unfortunately most people use Mustang motors with aftermarket EFI which seem to have nothing in common with Explorers outside of the block. Lots to learn here, but it looks like cam/crank signals are easy to extract.

      No build thread yet--mainly just collecting parts as my job has gotten in the way of car projects lately. The previous owner collected a ton of parts. Some fit, some don't, and some important stuff was missing/wrong (like the cam is too much for stock valve springs and injectors). I have a couple photos on RX7Club but nothing too exciting:
      Another Mazda in the fleet (some assembly required) - RX7Club.com - Mazda RX7 Forum

      Hopefully!
