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 am contemplating on installing and running for a bit, but the size difference from what I currently have is substantial to the point I don't think they will fit. However the did come off a Turbo Coupe prior.
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 see how it changes the look of the car from the puny 205's. I am not sure how such a small tire got on there.
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 water stains out of a nice tweed seat cover? About 8 years ago my brother didn't close my car door all the way and it poured and leaked onto the seat leaving a large water mark.
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 fresh with relays or a controller (this was a quick wire to get my car through my wedding):
Got the cheapy reservoir installed, its gonna be tight in that corner with the battery:
Pulled the cobbled intake apart:
Re-installed the charcoal can, vacuum hoses and solenoid:
I need to get this monster Pro-M back into the fender well before the next tune. Only option is an Anderson kit. I really need the kit on the right but I got a great deal on the kit to the left. Will just insert a 3.5'' spacer pipe where the bullet MAF should go:
Also ended up getting my new Walbro 255LPH pump and bracket/sender. Hope to make more progress this weekend!
