So here's a little update (sorry been working alot and have no life)

Just a quick picture of the car lowered again, better than the sucky phone pictures.



Main news, I picked up 1 other polished cobra wheel (already had 1 spare) so I can mount some Drag radials on them, and not tear up my nitto's when I go to the track. Maybe this will get me to the track more often too lol...

Picked these up as well, although now that I have my other cobra wheel, these will be up for sale shortly:




car needs some love, I picked up the door to body weatherstripping kits from LRS last weekend, need to get those changed out, before it starts raining. Thats about it....I'll post up more when I get it

Little update,

So I started to notice that the car was running a little bit warmer than normal. Found out my water pump was seeping out of the weep hole. In my garage the floor has an epoxy coating on it, which makes leaks really noticeable. That is if you don't have carpet down underneath your car (like I did) and didn't notice it leaking.

Well it got to the point where I would fill it up in the morning before work, drive to work (8miles) drive home and the radiator would be almost empty.
So I picked up a new Ford Racing water pump, new thermostat, new gasket's and ARP's waterpump bolt/stud kit from LRS. Luckily for me (with the help of a knowledgeable friend, not one bolt busted off. Had 2 that were really questionable. Like as your trying to loosen the bolt, it kind of has that "dead" feeling to it, and you start thinking "oh ****, please don't break....please don't break." Well the praying worked, no broken bolts. Found that it was the original water pump that came on the car. 21 years old. Not bad Anyway it finally let go between the shims and the timing cover gasket. Here's a couple of pics:
Just a lil leak:


Out with the old, prepped and ready for the new one:

USED plain and simple (147,000 mile water pump)

All Done!

Noticed this:

BBK longtubes 2.5 on the ball and socket are actually 2.25.


Then the ports on the flange have big welds inside. Plan is to smooth them out:


Tools of destruction, diamond cut rotary bits

I'm surprised that FORD doesn't know what galvanic corrosion is. Aluminum bolts in an iron block...
