    Powersteering Pump replacement gone wrong

    So here's what happened. I bought a new (re manufactured) power steering pump for my 87 mustang, because there was a bit a clanking noise at idle and a rattling noise at high rpm. I then noticed the shaft of the pump seemed loose where there was a lot of play back and fourth. Before even putting...

    Brakes Cadillac ATS calipers installed!

    Finally completed the install, minor modifications to calipers and spindles to make them work but well worth it.

    New Wisconsin Fox Owner

    Hey everyone - new guy here. I just picked up a 1990 LX 5.0 over the weekend. It's had a few mods over the years, some of which I know and some of which I'm sure I'll find as I dig deeper into it. I'm sure I'll be spending a lot of time on this forum throughout the course of this project...

Pedal is all the way out and the fork looks like it has no more room to move. Clutch doesn't fully engage and...

    Paint and Body Headlight cleanup
