Just got back formt he dyno portion of SVT vs. the world. Meh it was alright, seems like I didn't miss nothing while working on Chris's SVT. Which by the way we got up and running. Took a few try's but it moves and has power. Still have a bit of a issue with the t-belt tensioner, but nothing that's not fixable right now, as it stands it runs and drives.

yeah, blue b*tch is back on the road, 27 miles and no code,
even the alternator and o2 codes seem to be cleared now.

tensioner tho is having some problems, it is off by a good inch below the adjustment pin, and there is a lot of free play while engine is on, which is causing the timing belt rolling just exactly on the edge of the cam pulleys which is not a comfortable feeling for me :P

I need to get tensioner for Daniel and engine mounts for myself, so next time i need to take it apart at least i can change em.

It must have moved down when we double checked to make sure the exhaust cam was tight? I dunno, ether way it's timed and running. We'll address the tensioner soon enough.

Ford and their stupid tensioners. Don't know why they can't make it so that it just tightens and locks in place once done without worry of belt walk.

Well my fan resistor pack must be burned up again since my car vibrates bad when the radiator fans kick on. Time to replace it again
