  1. What's in YOUR toolbox?

    I bought a 3/8" impact a few years ago. Haven't had any issues out of it, but haven't used it much either. I would say it is on the level of a Campbell Hausfeld.

    I will have to take the calipers and measure the seals, I didn't want to change them because they are not leaking. I may have to get more shims. Thought about getting cups but it seems that most of them .060 which would be .015 over on the exhaust but still in tolerance.

    Finally, ended up compressing the spring and then using the socket and extension as a drift. Now all the keeper are broke loose and I found that one of the rockers wasn't a Scorpion. It looks just like them and is a 1.72 but doesn't have the Scorpion imprint and the 1.72 stamping is different.

    Yeah, but I don't have one. Been using a couple of cheap impact sockets on the retainers. I don't think any of the parts houses have brass drifts in stock.

    Bleh I have gotten every retainer/keeper loose except number eight intake. I can't get a good swing with the mallet and everything is in the way, hood, A/C line, clutch cable, speedo cable ..........

    I'm not sure if these are right or not. Mike??? Dizzy??? Replaced the springs on number one and used a silver as a base shim and two black shim to match their install height gauge on the intake and only the silver base shim on the exhaust. I'm not sure if this is the correct stacking order though. If the other seven are the same I will have just enough shims to complete it. I skipping the valve stem seals for now which might come back and bite me. The instruction show a valve spring cup which the E7s don't have and the instructions have small gaps in them. https://static.trickflow.com/global/images/instructions/tfs-2500100.pdf
  7. Random thought thread

    Needed tires, bought tires. Hopefully the third time back I will be finished..... Hard to find good people today.

    Ok, what is the combination switch, turn signal? Why would it connect to that?
  9. Fox Mustang: Next Purchase

    Looks like it runs to pin 2 on the EEC connector.

    Is the HEGO power hot in both run and start positions?
  11. Fox Mustang: Next Purchase

    Curious, as I was gutting the '93 2.3 harness for what I needed I noticed a difference. The green connector is slightly different, the low oil sender was blank, no big deal, but there was a light green wire that ran to the EEC in the blank pin. Anyone know what this wire is for? The brown connector was also missing the bottom two pins, but I don't think I need either of them.

    I would either go to the cage on windshield bar or under the dash, depends on how much you like running wires.

    Yuck, I wonder if they still make that dash panel.
  14. Nova build and questions

    For a $100 I would jump on it, or you can try to find something cheaper.

    Have you bought a meter? Your going to need one to chase down wires.
