    Got the fuel lines figured out wire harness in all the plugs succesfully reconnected the spark plug wires all routed ..when i get back to my shop i will set the motor in the mounts so i can get the hoist out of the way then i have to..


    Reconnect
    *starter wires (3 nuts)
    *Ground wires (2 nuts)
    *Install the power steering pump and alternator combo bracket (5 bolts)
    *Alternator wires (1 plug 1 nut)
    *Install a.c compressor (4 bolts)
    *Throttle cable (clips in)
    *Cruise control cable (clips in)
    *Clutch cable (1 nut and another nut that holds the first nut for adjustments)
    *Find the right size belt (trip or 2 to auto parts store)
    *Oil pressure gauge (1 nut run wires through firewall)
    *A.f ratio gauge (1 plug run wires through firewall)
    *Radiator and fan combo (2 nuts and 1 plug)
    *Lower and upper radiator hose (4 hose clamps)
    *Connect aftermarket temp gauge (1 plug)
    *Fill and burp coolant
    *Trans mount (2 nuts and 2 bolts)
    *Connect drive shaft to diff (4 bolts)
    *Buy a new battery (mine is toast)
    *Connect exhaust to headers (4 nuts)

    It probably took me longer to write this list then it will take to do alot of these tasks

    Most likely get at it in a couple hours wen i get off work .

    Things im a little worried about...

    Lost hardware no big deal really out of 3 mustangs im bound to find something that will work

    Electrical.. especially the temperature sensor giving me the same issues it did before when i switched from coolant temperature sensor to cylinder head temperature sensor

    Anyway just gonna continue the same process of crossing each bridge 1 by 1 and checking off the list no rush and no stupid ghetto rigging

    Actually come to think of it (and this is the benefit of writing down my plan) by reading over my last post i realized i will test my fuel system for leaks first before i set the engine in because if i have a fuel leak where the 2 rails connect i will have no choice but to pull the engine again..

    If i was bawse i would put the oil pan i have with the turbo drain a.n fitting and plug it but im not

    lol so yea ill be all motor for a little while longer...
    Cant wait to hear the built motor through my already sweet sounding exhaust set up.. its gonna be super sweet i hope!!

    Kyle, don't start the car without a tune and bigger injectors. You'll wash the cylinders and ruin the engine.

    Look here: Mounting Solutions - Direct Fit Part number 100004 works best for the A/F ratio gauge and mounting is simple. The pillar pod is great for the other gauges.
