My New, New 347

I'm abandoning my old thread (My new 347), as the motor has been an epic fail for many reasons.

Thanks Tim. The tough part is that the car needs to be fairly level, sitting on its tires before they go in. Without a hoist that supports the car on its tires, it would be less than fun. Nothing like welding sparks while your on your back, under the car. 🔥

jack stands under the torque box's, and i would have to believe your garage floor is level. that and ive done a few pairs of frame connectors. if you ever see joe again, ask him what happen when i was welding them into his car.....dumb ass lol

So sad to see it's demise. Maybe seeing it live on in another vehicle will bring back some joy!

Yea, I'm hoping so also. I'm actually relived to to hear about the stripped valve cover bolt. In my defense, that bolt is right at the heater box and was an absolute bitch to get at. When the turbo oil return pump quit working, it wasn't pretty. Oil everywhere also. Im not sure if the turbo is hurt from it, no idea. Just way more than I could deal with at -40 degree's. Nice to see that Tim's the right guy to get this stuff. I'm quite happy to play with my mustang in the summer, and have a reliable daily driver now.
