T56 is hard to beat bud

 

It already has a 26 spline input shaft. Great starting point for a build.

If that one has the reverse lockout solenoid and you're not going to hook it up, there's a replacement spring you can get that makes it possible to get into reverse without using both hands.  If you need it I can see if I can dig up the source.

Yeah man, that would be great! I’m not going to hook it up, seems unnecessary. Actually was reading about that over on SVTP yesterday.

Why no finish pics of the Hydroboost -AN setup?☹️

 

I haven’t finished it yet 😏  This weekend I intend to work on it. I’m on call at the chemical plant so it just depends on how much time I have.

It’s a really nice idea is all and I’m curious as to how the solution looks when you’re done. Everything looks great so far and I think we’re all excited about the progress you’re making.

Thank you for the moral support!! As you’ve witnessed it takes me awhile to do even the smallest jobs with this car at times. As a result, I wind up having several “half done” tasks waiting for time or parts to complete. That being said, I have a Mach 1 power steering bracket being delivered tomorrow and also the o2 extenders necessary to complete the power harness install should be in later this week.

Seems like I recall saying I wouldn't have another engine built, period. No way, no how..

  1. Picked up @Frank.JD.Perez old stock radiator from @LWARRIOR1016
  2. Ordered the damn $50 bypass hose to complete the coolant system
  3. Obtained a Mach 1 PS reservoir bracket to clean up the front of the engine

Now I'm going to find the time to install this crap!

Started on the AN power steering hose conversion today. Had to drop the rack to get the old lines out, which was a major pain in the ass.

Making the actual hoses up wasn’t very difficult but getting the ferrul onto the soft, Teflon inner hose was a pain.

This is the low pressure hose to the hydro boost:

At this point I was called into work but I will post more pictures later!

Thank you! Yes, you do. The universe demands this. I need to finish it up. Another Mustanger mentioned the power steering pump specific fitting is too long and he is going to provide me with the part # for the approximate part. I’ll make sure to post this information for all.

Found an older JLT cold air intake on eBay for cheap. Things are starting to really take shape now!

It was brought to my attention that the power steering fitting blocks a fluid passage. I took the stock fitting out of an old pump to see what he meant and found this:

 

Fluid passage

 

Did some research and found a thread over on the TCCOA forum where someone found an easy fix by cutting the Russell fitting down:

 

Fluid passage

 

Fluid passage

 

More on this at a later date!!

I will actually need to read this build. There seems to be a little less clutter in the engine bay/around the suspension.. 

 

Did you delete the EGR?

White I like the bracket you made to run the hoses back into the bay from the inner fender but please tell me your gonna put a grommet there?!?!  Otherwise that will eventually chafe and then  wear on the hoses. 

 

Unluess loss of stearing while heading towards a wall is you thing!!!!  Lol
