Started the mustang for the first time yesterday and it sounds really good.
The Borgenson power steering box and pump work 100% better than the stock ones. Headers fit with clearance around everything.
New hoses, fan shroud and all the wiring is repaired. I should have added a heater control valve as the hot water flows through the heater core all the time but that is the way it was stock. The new distributor is larger then stock due to the coil in the cap and required a street ell at the heater hose connection as the stock one was too tall. Lokar throttle and kick down cables are used to fit the Edelbrock manifold and carburetor.
The exhaust system started with a 2 1/2" pipe kit from Speedway Motors.
I bought a pipe bender from Harbor Freight to bend the smaller kicks needed.
The old shocks were installed and the rear end supported to make sure the proper of clearance.
Muffler's are Summit Racing and the drive shaft with new U joints was installed.
The straight section required offset and kicks at the headers.
The 3 bolt flanges came with the Try-Y headers.
The bends that came with the kit did not work for the bends over the axle and I had to modify the angle with pie cuts then weld them up.
All the exhaust was tack welded together then removed from the car welded up, welds were ground to check for pinholes. Then, the pipes were painted with high temperature paint and re- installed.
Home made mufflers support
I had 2 1/2" flanges in stock to fabricate the "H" pipe.
The lower valance was temporally installed to get the tail pipes in the right location.
The new front calipers that were back ordered finally came and I was able to complete the brake system with my wife's help to pump the pedal for bleeding.
A new aluminum 3 row radiator takes the place of the 2 row copper one.
I have contacted a local body shop to come and give me a estimate for body and paint work before I put any more of the car together.
