Got the copper gaskets, and the polished accessory brackets in. Also did some clearancing to my rocker studs and got all them adjusted.

Got my lifters all straightened out. Replaced one, tore apart 4 others and soaked them in PB to get them unstuck.

Got the bottom end finished up minus the oil pan. Also installed the timing cover, water pump, and crank pulley.

I am thinking that I am going to pull the GT40 intake off my Mountaineer and install it for now. Get the wiring done and motor running, then self tune the blower.

Picked up another GT40 intake. Got her cleaned up and mocked up. Probably going to run it for a bit first to break in motor.

Small update.

Picked these up. May use them for slicks.


Not much going on with the motor. Got it all together minus the upper. Can't get my polished accessory brackets to fit with the Explorer timing cover/water pump. Also got most of the main harness sorted out.

Just saw this post on Jalopnik:

This V8 RWD Focus Is A Treat From An Alternate Dimension

Very cool that the V8 Focuses get some exposure, but I like yours better!

Valve covers on. Removed the lower 2 vac line barbs to clear the taller valve covers. Then tapped the holes to seal them off. Don't think the drivers side breather is going to fit.
