Since we stripped it down last weekend with only the engine left in it. Figured that it was a good time to get the 4 wheel alignment and Torque thrust alignment done.

Hopinig to be driving her tonight after work. Of course it is supposed to rain pretty much all week, but that will help me with getting the 500 miles on the new clutch before seeing how the new suspension works.

:cool:;):D:D

Parts that have been laying around since about 2007 or so. Tried to get an aluminum flywheel in, but somehow missed that it needed 99-04 Mustang bolts.


Mark VIII LCAs and diff housing purchased back in 07

Centerforce Dual Friction Clutch purchased Feb of 2010

Shocks/Struts & Springs 2012

Transmission from 2006

Suspension parts go way back to 2002 or so.

No more grinding in trans. Anyone that wants to rebuild a 94 let me know quick as these parts are on their way to the scrap yard.

Something is rubbing. Drove it the 8 blocks to the alignment and something is striking against something.

Sounds like it might be the front tire on the drivers side hitting something, but the shop said they coudlnt find anything with it on the lift.

Going to jack up one tire at a time and see what I can find out. Pretty sure it's not the driveshaft.

If I can find a place for it, I'd take it Todd. Wouldn't mind having a newer 5spd for the 90.

Andy,

It's in C.B. If you can swing by the ford dealer and pick it up let me know. A.S.A.P

Drove it today and actually got up to 55mph in a 55 zone of course. Been trying to get 500 miles on it with the new clutch before any throttle is applied.

It is running great and a pleasure to be back in. The firm light is being a bit difficult, but working on that. Seems the light comes on as it should with the throttle input, but when I flip the switch on it comes on and then goes out, but it is not blinking at all, just doesn't stay on.
