Today we took the project Mustang apart. It was nice to be working on a new car, with no dirt or road stuff on it. It was really not a bad car to work on. My longtime friend Carl Baker was visiting from Ohio, and he started taking parts off before lunch. By 5 we had the engine out, which wasn't bad for us considering we knew nothing about new street cars.
Tomorrow we are going to install a dummy block and heads, with the trans and bellbousing. Motor mounts are an unknown at this point.
I have 7 pictures to post, but they will be one at a time. I have better luck this way. .... Kaase

I am jealous. I wish I could be doing that swap. Looks like you got a good start so far. What are you going to do for a rear end setup. I assume a 9 inch..

It's cool to see you working on it! Sometimes us regular guys get the feeling the big names in motorsports don't really get their hands dirty.

Big ole thumbs up!

Jon,

You are doing a fine job, and I'm proud of you! But man, you are going to have to push like heck in order to have it ready for the Bash :!: That's only two weeks away :!:

Keep up the good work :wink:

Hi Jon

Hi Jon

Make a few extra sets of headers and mounts. I have a feeling that with you producing heads, etc. again, a few of us would like to take on a project like that. :D

Looks like fun!


Tom

that car looks nice mr. kaase. good luck. Say let me ask you, what are you gonna do with the rest of the drivetrain? I mean that 3v mod motor is a really good street motor.
