Just filled it , turned right to left to bleed out the air pocketsGuys, I just ordered my power steering pump from Ford. Part number AR3Z3A674BRM . I wanted to make sure I got a ford part since I didn't want to get a cheap one from autozone or other places that weren't Ford OEM . My question is am I supposed to prime the power steering pump? Did you guys have too? Or just plugged everything in and filled the reservoir and turn left right left right till the whine sound was gone? @TOOLOW91 @89oem @RacEoHolic330
So the pump I'm not sure of . It's been so long so some stuff is foggy . The headers I Believe we used the ford studs and nuts with no issue . We may have even used the ford gaskets too cuz I'm not a fan of the BBK gaskets .i just ordered my BBK LT part number BBK16340 and the recommended gaskets which I'm not sure if I really needed them but the guy from BBk recommended I get BBK1410 which are premium gaskets. For those guys that used BBK headers did you also apply Ultra Copped RTV ? Or just the header gasket? Or both.
Also did you end up removing all studs that came factory on the heads for the headers? I'm not sure if I need to use all the bolts that come with the headers or if it's ok to just use the factory nuts. I don't want them becoming loose. I was looking at some type of locking nuts. Let me know what you guys did and if so far no leaks?
We put the PCM in the passenger front fender ahead of tire and used the bolt holes that held the old air box along the rail to mount it to with a small homemade bracket. Im sure you could just make a mounting point since you dont have the airbox.. . We put the power pack in the passenger kick panel and fished the leads through the fire wall grommet (from old ECU), you could just cut a hole with hole bit and find an appropriate grommet, we then turned it immediately into the fender well through a factory hole between the shock tower and firewall, we had to enlarge the hole from the engine bay into the fender slightly to allow the plugs to pass through, all the wiring is hidden from sight when you look in the bay, in the fender well just ran it along the top rail, it looks like it will fet tire contact but wont, not enough travel in the wheel unless you do a double grasshopper (lol)
@TOOLOW91 (who's at mustang week) uncoupled the plugs from the wires and then reattached after running them to I believe the same PCM location. PCM was last thing mounted, wire loom is perfect length for locating as described.
Some guy mount the PCM in the bay same location but that doesnt look as nice in my opinion since your doing all that work
