    Did some more work on the car this past weekend. Picked up the used Anderson Powerpipe made for the Bullet style MAF's, which I obviously don't have. However the price I paid we will make it work. Pulled the belt to remove the alternator: Polished up the Powerpipe best I could, its no show...

    Well dug a bit deeper into the 245's that came on the new Ponys and 2 have side wall plugs. So no running them, no big deal will keep the puny 205's till next season. Began working on the intake and coolant reservoir setup: Pulled the Cougar fan system out. I plan to scrap my wiring and start...

    Been travelling a bit this week so tomorrow I plan on working a half day in the garage on the Mustang. I dug out a few parts for installation and plan on changing the "hot air intake" back to inside the fender. Sorry for the horrid old IPhone pics. On a side note does anyone know how to get...

    I did do some searching and people have run this combo. Seem like it works better on 91-93's as the 90's and older have narrower inner fenders. Some report minor scrubbing, others report heavier. I'm going to give them a try. One tire is a bit leaky but all have about half tread left. Curious to...

    Been on the lookout for another Pony rim to replace a bent one. Finally settled and just buying a whole set. Id say they are in similar condition to my current ones and need a good reconditioning/painting. Thinking Anthracite or some type of gunmetal. The new rims came with tires mounted that I...

    Thanks! It has been a serious undertaking for a weekend warrior on borrowed equipment.

    Back at it... Need to remove the GT40 Tube and adjust the drivers side valves since it has some mile son it after the build. I do have a slight tick on that side so one is definitely a little loose. I also talked with several eBay sellers and found the correct set of injector filters with the...

    Leave it to photobucket to ruin a nice log.. They lost a user, now working with imgur. No real progress. Still need to adjust drivers side valves as I have 1 ticking loudly. A quick cold start the other day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oh1WRNhsb0

    Spent the weekend working on the car again. I received my LMR pulley set, so I installed Saturday evening. New set: Some sizing differences between the under-drives and OEM style: [URL=http://s830.photobucket.com/user/DieselSlug/media/1989%20Mustang%20LX/IMG I got the car running after...

    Still haven't been able to touch the car. Last weekend I came down with a stomach bug and that slowed me way down. Hope this weekend I can get the valves re-adjusted. I also ordered a new set of OEM sized pulleys to get rid of the under-drives.

    Took the car out for a short ride the other day. Coolant issue solved, however with my new cluster I now have a AMP light on all the time. A quick check at idle with the fans on shows 14.61 volts. Also changed the oil for the first time after the rebuild. I think I picked up a noisy rocker...

    Since I missed out on Watkins Glen opening weekend I had to hear the car run and do some type of tinkering. Got my temporary fuel gauge installed as well as the new cluster form a forum member. Also found out that my car is leaking coolant badly from the bottom of the thermostat housing! Old...

    Well the weather is just always swinging both ways here. Yesterday we had what I would only call a torrential downpour of rain. Our driveway slopes down off the road right into our drive in basement. Id say the basement floor is a good 1-2 foot below the road elevation. You can guess the rest. I...

    Got my SS Braided mechanical fuel line yesterday. Will mock up the gauge so it can be seen under the cowl at WOT to determine if pressure is dropping. Also got my Sinister Mustang decals for the 1/4 windows. This was the raped looking A9P that came out of my car. I went to the MSR website and...

    I just wanted to throw a shout out to coupe1993 on the Corral. He sent me a cluster for my car without accepting any cash in return even for shipping! Truly an honor to talk with a generous guy such as himself. Thank you sir. Hopefully I get some time to work on the car this weekend and get it...

    I gave my new A9S a test in the car last night. Fired right up. Next I will be purchasing a braided fuel line to move my gauge up to the windshield for temporary. Eventually it will be installed in the cowl. Need to see if I'm loosing pressure at WOT. Will prolly also purchase some headlight...

    Watkins glen season opener

    I agree. I've missed a few years due to the early date. I wont bring my car out till it rains a good few times once they stop dumpin' salt.
