Time for a New Years update. Needless to say, 21' was a trying year for me (and many). Me and the wife are divorcing after 16yrs. Been trying to keep my head straight, spending time with the kids and working on a new house. Mustang time has been very short. However,I did manage to get the car running a few days ago. I'll try to attach a video, but the "new" PS pump is super loud. Besides that,pretty much fired right up and has good oil pressure. Need to get the timing set for the Megasquirt but it idles well and no scary noises. I really need to get the car to my garage, then I could spend a little time on it here and there. Edit:says files too large. Crappy video anyway due to PS noisy as hell.
So,got off work early and tackled a small project. I installed short travel lifters when I rebuilt the engine,and my ocd made me re-think my adjustment procedure. They only need zero to 1/8 preload. Git that knocked out in about an hour,I do believe I had them too tight.
Finished stripping this a few minutes ago, what a PITA. Fuel injection harness. The tape was so hard you could crack it apart by bending it. Several of my fuel injector plugs had broken connectors,and I have new pigtails to solder on. I'll re-wrap whats necessary and cover everything with the DEI loom.
After some deliberation,going full fuel system upgrade E85. 525hellcat pump,upr rails,-8an feed -6an return,Aeromotive regulator and filter and ID 1000cc injectors and rewire kit. Should be good to go for my goals.
Got the tank pulled and fuel pump out. Of course the filter sock decided to part ways so I had to fish that out. Used my electric pump to remove the gas,when I was done looked in the jug and saw this...Bleh, looks like its time for a new tank
