I really hope so... I'm sick of working on it. I'm ready to drive it. I've been busting butt on it again so hopefully I'll have it cranked out by spring.

Could you tell me what size Griffin Radiator you picked? Was it a direct fit or universal one?

Great build and excellent pictures!

Thanks.

Hey Thanks!!

Below is a link to the radiator on Summit Racing. It is a direct fit. I have to say as well that I was impressed with it when I pulled it out. It looked really good. I was concerned with it being only a 2 core. But the cores are huge. I've never seen cores that big.

The Strange front disc brake kit came in this week. I'll be putting it on tomorrow (12/3/11). Then with any luck I'll get the wheels put on it and drop the transmission, motor plate and motor down in it.


I know the picture doesn't show it but these rotors sure are thin!! The caliper is aluminium art.

Hey

Let me know how this works out I am looking for one to go in mine and I was leary of the stuff on Summit and Jegs. I will need a different one since we have changed the complete setup. I was going to get one of the models with twin fans and a nice sroud built in. Gota love this custom stuff.

I will let you know but I'm a good couple months away from startup. Also check the link below. I don't think this made it onto my parts list. It is the dual puller fans that I will be using. They pull 4600 cfm. I had them on my truck but have taken them off to use on the Mustang. They never had any problem cooling the motor and the fan shroud is built in.

You still in China?

Frustrating Day

Well after working on the Mustang all day I tried to drop the motor in. The oil pan that I have on it is the truck/foxbody swap pan. The only problem is when I had it in my truck I had a local guy modify it. It now has a bigger rear baffled sump. And yep... You guessed it. It would not clear my UPR K-member by about 2 inches. No amount of pushing or pulling was going to get it in there. So before I tore something up I pulled it back out.

Sooooo close yet so far!! #*^%#%$!!!

Now where did I put my B.F. hammer?? Damn the luck...


I know Ford has the foxbody swap pan. But I'd like something bigger that holds more oil and is baffled. Anybody have any part numbers for me? I'm going to be on the internet searching for what I need tonight. Hopefully I'll get something here by mid week. I'll choke if I have to buy a $300 Moroso pan.

Chris my truck uses a fox swap style pan as well and I am going with the Moroso 20625 but that pan is ~$420 but set up for dragracing or the other pan which is same shape but without the windage tray and crank scraper it is 20620 I believe and that one is a little over $300. The Canton pans Lem was selling were nice pieces but they won't fit with the headers and starter.

I was thinking $300 for a Moroso but you are right. I was on Summit and they are more than that. This sucks. More money...More money...

This thing better haul a$$ when I'm done.

Will the $420 one with windage tray and crank scrapper fit the 4.3 stroker crank? If I recall you are a 4.3 stroke as well.

Rear End Pictures

I got a couple of pictures of the rear end this evening. The 9 inch housing was purchased from Quick Performance on eBay. It came with Aluminium spherical bushings and had the brackets on it to bolt right into a foxbody. I then got axel housing reinforcement brackets from Jegs and welded them on.

Chris, I had a Canton fox pan in my Capri with the TP motor plate and headers. It fit great. Your car is looking good!
