I haven't been on in a while, figured id start a thread of my current project! My 3.0 kept crapping out on me so i decided to finally ditch it and upgrade to a 5.0
the end result will be a carbed 5.0 with a few power adders paired to a 4speed trans with granny. I've already gotten my donor vehicles and most of my parts gathered minus new headers, flywheel, clutch, and a few odds and ends. an more an better pics to come. sorry they are cell pictures though
Donor vehicle for the motor is a 86(i believe) F-150 with a swapped carbed 302, just rebuilt with cam and i believe bored over some.
last weekends progress on the ranger:
off the top of my head, the parts pile includes:(all new
) 95 mustang gt motor mounts, ranger trans mount, fox body dual sump pan, oil pump pickup and all gaskets, arp fastners, march underdrive serpentine conversion pullies, billet fuel pump block off plate, holly 1560 600cfm carb w/ electric choke, 1" phenolic carb spacer and studs, MSD 6AL ignition, MSD blaster coil and mount, Canton 90' oil filter adapter, transdapt oil filter relocator, and an explorer 5.0 rad is all so far i believe lol...
hopefully this weekend ill get the donor motor pulled, cleaned, painted, and placed in the ranger... We'll see! biggest thing i think will be hacking the core support up for this monster of a radiator lol. anyone have any pics of this with this particular rad?? then its on to the wiring
