1986 Ford Mustang SVO-ND Part Deux
Monday night proved to be productive. I stripped the
manifolds and pulleys off the engine, as used in the pics from
the previous page. Then I put the engine on the ground, installed
a pilot bearing (yes, a bearing for that V8 transmission), adaptor
plate, flywheel and clutch, and finally, the T-56 6 speed transmission.
After installing some other small items, I put it all on the
hoist, and put it in the car. Once there, I mocked all the manifolds
and pulleys up again to check clearances. I am very pleased,
to say the least!
Looks pretty in there, doesn't it?
What you don't see is the body wiring, which has already been
routed in the fenders. I will still have some wiring visible
when done, but you will have to look for it ;)
Turbo has about 3/4" clearance to the strut tower.
Those who are looking closely will notice I am using a Mustang
Cobra Hydroboost brake setup. The intake fits with this, without
issues. The intake will need to be modified to fit around cars
using a vacuum booster.
This picture shows that there is little doubt that this 16v engine
is indeed in a Mustang :)
