Installed the radiator for a trial fit

Repositioned my auxiliary trans filter. It used to mount on that right side radiator bracket and also repositioned my trans cooler, no pic to show of that.

Got my new shifter.... that I got from Joes Race Parts installed. It had a 1/4 stick in it but I wanted the pistol grip type. The new one sits a little different than the old one scratch . The front lever would come in contact with the radio and the shifter wouldn't lock. So the center console was removed, along with the radio and I plan on removing the heater control.

I kind of liked the center console look, but oh well you got to do what you got to do. The console alone weighed 12 lbs. I believe I've taken close to 100 lbs from the car. The exhaust that was on it weighed in at 44 lbs. I'll have to do a re-weigh once the new mill is in which will have alum heads opposed to the d0ve c's that were on the old engine.

A panel was made and installed where the heater control was at. The color isn't off as bad as the picture shows.

Well the mock up engine is out for the final time. The engine bay got squirted with some paint. It looks a whole lot better in black.
My build, my Fox transformation....lotsa pics - Page 2 Car046



I need to clean this side up Rolling Eyes . Do a little fit and finish on the wiring.... going to try and kinda like hide it in the inner fender well affraid . But I'm not going to tackle that project til after the new mill is in it. Cause I know the wiring worked before I removed the engine and this way I'll know it should work after the engine is installed Laughing

Here's a shot of how the trans cooler was re-done. It used to sit sideways down in front of the passenger front tire. One of the old blue support braces is still hanging there.

After you make sure they fit, you should send them out to be coated! I can't stand rusty headers!

They fit great and I thought about coating them but didn't think they would turn out too well since they have been around awhile, been run, then sat, then rusted, etc. I hate to spend big bucks on them to only come out half way decent. Maybe I'll contact someone and have them take a look at them and see what they say Idea

Those headers look great!! Better fit and no bashed in tubes!!

On my T-bird, the starter solenoid is on the passenger side cuts down on a bit of wiring.

our starter solenoid is behind the dash inside the car. hides lots of wiring that way. like you said run the wires in the fender and move soem things around and it will clean up nicely.

edit: after looking at the pictures more you can put everything inside the car if you wanted. just an idea. Very Happy

Okay guys since we're on the solenoid thing....why do I have a starter solenoid and an auxillary solenoid? I didn't do that and got to thinking after the engine was out and doing what has been done now, what can I move to where and what can I eliminate?

I only have one. I power the entire front off of the starter solenoid except the FAST and MSD which I wire straight to the battery in the back. I would mount the coil on your motor plate and everything else inside the car.

When I say starter solenoid I mean one on the starter and plus the external "auxillary" solenoid.

Post  the Coug on May 20th 2010, 3:56 pm

put a loop wire on the one on the starter, another words plug a wire on it and hook it to the main battery post on the starter so it will energise when the buttn is hit. and use the one inside..

The factory gear reduction starters want that other solenoid used as a relay, they are wired this way from the factory for a reason. The deal will not de energize right without it...............dont ask me why.

WOW Shocked It's been quite some time since I've given any updates on this. I bought a house and been pre-occupied with it and with life in general Rolling Eyes.

Blake has the short block together, cam is in and degreed cheers . He has one head done and working on the other one and should be done with it real soon then he'll flow them to see what they'll do.

Blake's cam choice is a Comp Cams cam .276/.286 @ .050, 110*separation, .689/.710 lift before lash solid flat tappet named the "Snake Series - Barbed Wire Edition" Cool ......hmmmm wonder how that name came about Suspect Idea Laughing

Got THE new TFS intake and ordered a QFT 1150 cfm QFX series carb from Lem. Don't have pics to show off the porn cause everything I've ordered has been shipped directly to Blake. So it'll be SOON that I'll be headed to Owensboro to dyno this puppy Twisted Evil

I'll post flow numbers and updates as I recieve them.

Blake did send me these
