Found another engine donor
Well, due to a request by my younger brother to use my 5.0 Mustang motor for a project that he and a buddy are working on in So Cal. I have been recently looking for another potential donor. It seems that their project, a Track Racing Mustang needs a built motor, suspiciousely like the motor I have been funding, that my brother has been building for me. So in the spirit of brotherly love, I have agreed to sell them/him my motor for the money I have into it(on payments no less), and I have deferred his butt kicking until the next time I see him, rather than actually seeking him out, across state lines, and doing it now.
However, that had left me without a donor for my upcoming swap....Until today that is. A freind told me of a guy who needed to sell his Mustang project donor here in town,(kinda poetic justice since I lost my engine to a Stang project). So I picked up a 90 Lincoln Mark VII, with a Ford 5.0 HO and 83K miles today for $500. Im back in buisness. I started pulling the motor out this afternoon, in the parking lot of my apartment, I should be able to yank it out with a forklift on the jobsite tomorrow. The only difference I can see with this engine and the stang is, I think the EFI manifold faces the other way.
Anyway all the parts are now in place, so it looks like the swap will be taking place now over the next few weeks.
There is no "TRY", Just "DO" or "DONT DO"
