If I read correctly, you are in Alabama now? What are the chances of you coming down to Daytona in April and bringing this car?

steering. consists of flaming river u-joint, 3/4" DD shaft, and a hyme joint.




drive shaft. stock alum drive shaft out of a 4x4 explorer with conversion u-joints to make it fit the mustang rearend and th400.


my fix to the air in the cooling system problem and its inability to bleed out b/c the cap was lower than the head/water pump.

i hope to have it done by the end of the semester. i want to have it at the track some time this summer. this is my first tuning project and i will be taking my time getting the tune right on the street before i take it to a track. all i like having it pull itself is to finish building the trans.
