Drop a U-joint and see. Could be a linkage issue (and TRS bypassed).

Very cool indeed. I thought about it. I really did. But decided to do a duratec swap instead. Still damn cool and a def. follow. R

Its in neutral. Not anything wrong behind the bellhousing. It would be an input shaft to flywheel issue if there is anything.

Opened up the bottom end. loosened all the rod bolts and made crank easy to turn. Started tightening them up one at a time. And the third one made hard again. Crank looks good, bearing doesn't. Guess its time to plastigage.

Took all the caps off and polished the journals. Noticed when I torqued 5 (one I had a problem with) and had the cap off of 1, I could spin it. So I hit the edges (contact points between the two rods) with some 600 grit where there was some rough spots. All seems good now.

I need to get some new bolts before putting the oil pan back on. I didn't notice before but the Explorer bolts are a hair too long to tighten all the way with a Mustang pan.

I have a video as soon as it uploads.

Why do those bearings look so dry?

Because I cleaned them. Assembly lube was use on reinstallation.

Still the most interesting build thread on here! Congrats on having it running again. I can't wait to see this car in person someday soon. Hopefully you'll be able to drive it down to Louisville for a meet at some point!
