More schtuff.....

The 5.0 pickup tube does not work here.... as you can see, there'a about 5/8" gap between the flange and the pump, not to mention to bolt hole are clocked differently...
You just didn't want it bad enough. You gotta believe.

LOL.... I really thought abound bending this thing to fit. But my Buddy talked me into getting the right one. I got it for 27 dollars shipped, so not too bad of a mistake.

Yoda could have made that thing fit though....

SN95 hubs on the front and two Ranger right side shafts in the rear will get you 5 lug.
Do you have a machine shop you use in Salt Lake, or near Salt Lake? I need to find one to take the bottom end to. Talked to Crankshaft Grinders... the guy sounded pretty knowledgeable until he asked me if it was a Windsor or a Cleveland after I had told him the motor was a 1996.

Well... this is where I got it to. I have way too much going on with the house to get it complete and in the Mustang.... so I tucked it away for a winter nap.

Welp... that motor is still sitting there. Since I've been on here last, I bought another Fox Body which is where the 351 will end up. My 89 is in too good of condition to go putting a 351 in. Here's a couple pics of my 89 GT (the white one) and the new multi-colored 88 GT, which is named "Frankie".

The new one definitely has "sleeper" written all over it. Don't change a thing on the outside!

Thank you.... I've been going back and forth on what direction to take it. I just did a 5 lug swap to it on Saturday. But the look is growing on me, for sure.

It doesn't display when I view your profile or posts either, but I can definitely see it in your user details (via the moderator controls). I don't know why it's being hidden for some and visible for others. Browser settings smart enough to filter out junk links, perhaps?

Never mind.... I was looking for that specific wording. I did not see the "Buy Here", nor did I put it there. Very strange. I used to have some stuff down there, but definitely not that.

My apologies, but I am baffled as to how that got there. Is Rick still on here? I tried to do @RangerSVT but he didn't show up.

EDIT: OK, now it did after I submitted.
