Well, Shit. Didn’t realize the upper and lower mounts were completely different. Well, I looked around my hoard and found a bracket that looked feasible enough to modify into a suitable pair of upper mounts.

The idea was to use some of the existing holes in the core support to keep from unnecessarily modifying the car for a temporary fix.

Took a few measurements and started to whack metal with my Dremel tool. Didn’t take any pictures of the process but you’ll get the idea.

The goal here is to either use a small u-bolt to hold the peg in place or simply just leave it as-is. It’s rock solid.

Did some minor fit work to allow the drivers side to fit flush.

Here’s how it’ll look with the expansion tank in place. Now I’ll remove the mounts and paint them black.

The mid pipe and mufflers are also installed but the pipes need to be aligned.

You'd better hurry and get the car moving under it's own power.  I see a spider starting to build it's home on the rear diff.

You leave Rosco alone. He’s my guard spider to keep my wife away from the car.

So, that shit didn’t work. The bracket we welded on wasn’t completely lined up and I had to start over. This time, I found a Mach 1 crossover and it fits like a charm. Now I can move on to the remaining items on my punch list.

So, I bought that stuff because it was cheap to keep what was useable, modify it where needed and to toss the rest. Now, the plan is to have Caleb @ CG build me a hot side that works with my MM K, clears the AC, PS & retains the sway bar. 

 

The on3 kit doesn’t work with the MM k-member and that’s 100% why I didn’t go that route.

We could always build your hot side like Adam did in his purple car. It’s too easy

I’m on the cusp of a first start. However, the start isn’t engaging when I twist the key. This could be a relay or PATS related. If it were PATS, I thought it would at least crank but not start.

1) I wired in the fuel pump but still have to rewire it to run like a 94-97 car and not the variable, 98 pump. Thanks @LWARRIOR1016

My buddy gave me passenger seat but I didn’t find out it was junk until after it was cleaned up and installed. It’s very comfortable but the backrest doesn’t lock.

Common theme around here... At least nowadays it’s at home and I can just walk away from it when I’ve had enough. It was windy and rainy today so I didn’t mess with it.

Battery relocation is 80% completed, like everything else on this car...

This portion of the wiring is not final. It may be slightly re-routed and pass between the K member and the chassis.

The posisitve cable runs nearly the entire length of the run encased in 3/4” heated hose for a little extra protection.

I’m deleting the ABS system and decided to penetrate (heh heh, penetrate, heh) the grommet for the right rear sensor.

I still have to drop the fuel tank to secure the inner, threaded-rod to the trunk floor. I’m also going to run a ground to the engine block and also to the rear subframe via the rear, lower passenger seat belt mounting stud.

The need for an alternator harness came up and I decided to make one. After comparing the 4V, 2V & 302 harnesses I had on hand, the decision was made to modify the 302 harness for service. It was separate from the engine harness in 94-95 so now I can sell the others complete.

CFE828EF-0EB8-48E0-9EFD-2B91046F1763.jpegEF3BBAC3-AB0F-43BD-A746-8AB50C5F4024.jpeg5BAED10F-CB3E-4DDA-81F3-5F5E0F94AFA9.jpeg

 

The main difference being the 2V and 302 had 3G alternators and the 4V has the 4G (thanks for pointing this out @LWARRIOR1016) The 3G alternators use a smaller, grey one wire connector at the alternator whereas the 4G doesn’t BUT the wire is there. Hmm, let’s see where it goes. No where!! Ford didn’t even isolate it. Wow...

Laid the wiring down like I wanted it and secured it together with thin, vinyl splicing tape. I’m waiting for some split, braided loom to arrive and I intend to wrap everything to match the Holley efi harness.

 

4F4F0EA7-B627-42B0-B32C-45D988347149.jpegA564FCA3-07C9-4710-8461-809EBCF6E01E.jpeg2DC61D0C-5F60-4FC2-8DD6-F79911C6465D.jpeg

 

This just shows where I used an adel clamp to secure the wiring for the oil pressure sensor away from the accessory belt drive. I’m planning to use a lot more of these convenient little bastards. This apparently is the way the military routes things on aircraft, according to my USAF mechanic homie, Mikey94GT.

 

D1F7894E-B331-421E-9BB1-0F05AA2A2507.jpeg

 

So, after that was “completed”, I remembered that I needed to tighten the AN fittings at the steering rack. That’s when I realized my error. The 45* fitting at the rack crossed over the straight connector and made it impossible to double wrench. So, I swapped the 45* out for a straight and changed the straight at the Tee fitting for a 90* and it worked like a charm.
