Looks like you had a fun filled weekendAfter about 8 hours, a lot of busted knuckles, and a few tears, she's finally out! I decided to take out the transmission as well because I have read from other people that rebuilt similar engines that it is just easier to do it that way. Next weekend (hopefully) is the disassembly.
Looks like you had a fun filled weekend
You planning on rebuilding the motor or are you tearing it down to try and find the issue?
Just read all 8 pages in the past 5 minutes, and I'm realizing you're getting a hell of a ton of fun here. I'm sitting here delivering pizzas at 17yo trying to make as much money as I can to get my '99 v6 as nice as possible, but sadly I got into a bit of a fender-bender and I need a new fender (alas, it's only $120 unpainted..) but I don't have cats, getting bad fuel economy...Wish I was as hands-on as you, but I'm gonna be switching out my own spark plugs and fuel filter soon!Thank you all for sticking with me! I know I have long intermission between my posts, but there isn't a day that goes by where I don't think about my mustang and have the urge to drive her again. It's just been an extremely long process but I'm sure that will make me appreciate her even more when I finally put her back together again.
I have considered painting the block a dark purple, for a "purple heart" because this girl has put up one hell of a fight for me. I know I'm changing the valve cover paint from yellow for sure! Also, it makes me thing the fun part you're talking about will not be so fun lolYou going to paint her up before re-assembly? Your about to get to the fun part btw.
LOL! It gets fun when you see the light at the end of the tunnel. The anticipation of starting her sets in. BTW if I were you, since the motor is out, think about painting the inside of the engine compartment a dark color. I wish when I had my motor out I spent the time cleaning the compartment up, wires, parts, ect. Just a thought if you haven't considered it yet. It completes the look since your doing a lot of work already.
