T5 Update.

Transmission is cleaned. From a '90-91 5.0 Mustang, trans code 199. We'll see how it works with the 3.73 rear gears. MGW short throw with shift stop installed, input shaft retainer/adapter installed. Switch at the top is for neutral (would work great for a DD with remote start) and the switch on the side is for reverse which I plan on hooking up. Ordered some parts from NAPA - mount, u-joints, rear seal, speedo sensor and wiring connector. Plan to use the electric output from the speedo sensor with a late model 240 electric speedo and a variable resistor for adjustment.



Mustang driveshaft with Yoshifab adapter (nice piece!)



Slip yoke with the large diameter disc is from a 4cyl supposedly, and the smaller slip yoke is from the 5.0. Different u-joints for the two (replacing with new).




Exhaust components for the car. Pretty simple side exit - Walker Ultraflo muffler. Plan on buying a welder (Miller 140) soon!




Engine bay all ready for the engine/trans to be installed. Plan is this weekend. Need to switch back to the longer but smaller diameter 240 booster (thanks, Joe!) and install the 260 clutch master cylinder as well. Heat reflective tape is all the rage right now.



Switched back to the stock coffinhood. Not worth the un-painted flathood and paying $250 for the grille right now. Looks pretty stock, but thats fine. Volans will be gone once I decide on and find some nice BMW wheels that I can put some wider rubber on.




All hail to ye olde air filter!

Engine and trans are in!









2fast242gt (his engine if ya don't recognize it) also sold me a welder this weekend. Of course he had to prove to me that it works, so we re-located the oil temp sensor in the pan.



Clutch pedal is in for the hydraulic clutch. Might need a little adjustment yet.



This shifter feels way, way better than the m46/47 shifters I have been used to.

Weld shouldn't leak. I spent some time cleaning it today. What green is that? I need to pick up a can to spray that part of the pan quick. Even though I hate that green. When this engine is out for a period of time its going back to redblock red.

The tab on the clutch pedal had to be moved over further and it was done during a lunch break hence how dirty it is. It's solid.

Thanks for the booster, Joe! 3M red cleaned 'er up enough for me. Didn't paint it.

Cool. So Brian, that slip yoke that came with the T5, it doesn't have a cap near the u-joint, so basically fluid can leak right out from the internal spline. WTF

Yeah I should have taken a picture of it. I can't believe it. I feel like a cap is supposed to be pressed in there or something.

'Ran a 12.7 at the strip with it, so it should work for you.' LOL

Any details on those coilover pieces for the rear?

I could use something like that.

Bought some bling this weekend. Will be able to put a wider tire on now.



Poke


Tried out the welder. Got a ways to go to make it look nice. Lots of starts and stops in there as well.




Other than that, got new u-joints put in the driveshaft, made the push-lok fuel lines, and got the clutch line installed. Hopefully it will be running and driving next weekend!

So did you end up running the slip yoke with the damper on it? Any clearance issues? Do you have any noise from the trans?
