Yeah, you better have tie rod spacers before you put those on. The bumpsteer with the blocks and no tie rod spacers is VERY dangerous. Ask me how I know....

time for an update.....

installed LH2.2 instead of the K-Jet.....put about 50 miles on a motor that has sat dormant for over 10 years before loosing all the water out of the radiator, compression test showed 0,0,0 and 30psi.

Pulled the head and wow, surprised the car ever ran....











I have a few motors to chose from in my garage to use, so time to look at them again and pick the best one....

Default World Class T5 transmission, I "need" an overdrive !!!

the 242 currently has an M45(?) 4 speed with no overdrive....freeway driving at "normal" speeds is spinning the motor more than I would like...so I might as well install a better transmission while I have the motor out...time to take some dimensions and make an adapter plate.....

'90 Mustang 5.0 application

still a world class, however it is from a Ford 2.3 Turbo T-Bird, not the best gear ratios, but for an n/a car, not too bad....if they totally suck, I can upgrade to better ratios down the road...

NEVER !!!!!

The transmission looks to have been rebuilt before (non-factory sealant), however, I already bought a complete kit before taking it apart and might as well freshen it up again.
Gears are in great shape !!!

decided to address my lack of limited slip differential.....as per JohnV's recommendation, I sourced a Toyota truck rear end (open diff) and a Toyota Supra center diff assembly.

The Supras come with a nice clutch pack type LSD, this is a true limited slip and should be a lot better than the G80 route.

For the truck rear end, I picked up the wrong one...this one has the 7.5" ring and pinion, I should have picked up the 8" unit, we'll see how this one holds up 1st, I think it'll be fine for my less than 300hp current goals.
The axle is the same width as a 240, 55" mounting surface to mounting surface, drum brakes to be replaced by discs.

not this Supra one, I'll have to get one from a MKII, '82-'85, they called them Celica Supras, the ones with the plastic fender flare extensions....

wow, has it really been that long since I've worked on the car??

moved car from driveway and into the garage over the weekend.....plan is to try and work on it for a few hours per night.
A few pics of new wiring harness on top of the car, this is a 20 circuit universal unit, now to figure out how I want to route everything and what connectors to use
