Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

I told you that you'd love riding them. I just picked up a spare front and rear wheel for ours from a local guy that rides Moab and lots of trails. My buddy busted a rear tire in Veedauwoo this weekend and we had to use mine to go back and swap. I'm going to build a cage extension so we can mount one on it.

We got home around 10pm last night with the 57 on the trailer. It's sitting in the driveway on the trailer now. It has a 390/C6 but I'd really like to see a 5.4 under the hood. Pics to come.

Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

Up to today, I haven't done much else. Kids and work have dominated my time as well as the preparation to start up school again. 3 more courses and I'm done with school forever!!!

I got the entire trunk and back seat "unwired" and it's all on the floor in the back waiting for me to go forward with it. The engine bay is starting to clear out. Air Filter assembly, battery, AC hoses and coolant all gone. I have also put the front end on jack stands and am getting 2 more this weekend to put the rear up and get all the underside disconnected. I really hope to get something serious done to it soon as I need to get rid of the shell so I can clear a place to park for the wife when the snow hits.

Honestly, I just want the engine and tranny out so I can start to test fit it all in the Lane and get the IRS put away for my 57 F100 project. Going to put a modular in that as well as a Crown Vic front end after the Lane is running.

More to come with pics. I swear it. I just know how boring destruction pics are of a car. I like construction and progress pics.

Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

I got a lot done today on the MkVIII. I got the exhaust off, the wiring in the bay all marked and disconnected. I got the steering, shifter, fuel and all other things out that needed to be. THe only thing holding the drivetrain in now is the tranny mount and the engine mounts. I will drain the trans and then lift it all out tomorrow I hope. Just need to find a good spot to hook up the cherry picker.

The interior is shot. I took it all apart to the dash so far and have unbolted it. I'm going to start unplugging it and get it all out tomorrow too I hope. The little red books you see below will help me along in my journey. Just got them today.

Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

Can you guess what is missing from this next pic?????








That's right! I finally got the drivetrain out of the Lincoln. Had to drop the subframe while I lifted the engine but no biggie. Here sits the Fairlane with her new heart in front of her. I need to get the 8" rear out of her and swap it into the MkVIII so I can have it able to be loaded and unloaded on the flatbed to the junk yard. The IRS has to be put aside for my Galaxie project someday.





I can't wait to fit this package into the Fairlane and frown on the firewall and tunnel work I'll have to do. I really wish I had a newer engine with the side exit throttle body. I'm not waiting and not spending too much on this. I have the rest of the car to deal with. I'll pull parts and get them powder coated and leave it as is. I'll make an intake tube or something myself.


Next step, finish pulling the wiring and then get the IRS out.
I'm freaking sore and tired.

Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

Finally got all the wiring out of the Mark.







I also got the 8 inch rear out of the Fairlane.






The explorer 8.8 will need chopped 3" but I'm going to pull the IRS out and just for shits and giggles, settle it under the Fairlane to see what it looks like under there. Either way, I don't really want to use those springs again so I need to get a 4 link if not the IRS. Baby steps.......

Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

I got the IRS out and the 8" in its place. I measured the hub to hub mounting surface on both. The 8" is 57.5" and the IRS is 63.5" . 6" exactly. Not too bad but it would mean I'd have to get new wheels to replace my TTII's.



Now I just need to find a way to hard mount the 8" into the Lincoln so it'll go on the flatbed. After that, it's their problem. It's just sitting in position on blocks right now.

Are you doing all this by yourself? You are making good progress.

Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

Yes. All alone. My back is telling me it's not a good idea but.......Who do I have?

I got the Lincoln out to the driveway and the truck inside. Some people shouldn't work on their cars. I have a bunch to get straight on this truck before I can drive it.

Flowmaster will go on it tomorrow and I have to remount the fuel pump because the lack of a gasket causes it to leak right at the mounting point and I don't like oil stains on my driveway.

Re: Guess I need to start another project thread

I got some work done on the car today. The Lincoln is gone and I am upset with my 58 F100 so I got busy on the Fairlane on my day off. I got the engine and tranny installed. I have room for the Lincoln fan and radiator and I don't have to cut the trans tunnel or firewall. I do have to notch the crossmember about an inch or two because the pan is close. I will probably make my own pan someday but for now this will do. I tried to mate my R&C mounts to the factory Lincoln ones and realized, I have 2 rubber mounts in each side. I had to readdress that anyways because the steering shaft is completely in the way. I just took the C bracket and the engine plate parts of the Lincoln mount and got rid of the rubber part. The two are bolted together now and I'm working on the R&C mounts back onto the frame. I am contemplating cutting the lower cross bar off the frame and making it bolt on so pulling the engine and trans would be easier. I don't expect to do it too many times but you never know. I'll see when I pull it this time after welding the mounts. As of now, it sits on blocks with 4 plumb bobs lined up from the front radiator support, crank at the front, trans tail shaft and rear bumper centerlines. Engine is level and I just need to get these mounts in and subs done to attach the trans cross member to.












Anyone see any problems yet????

Thanks
Dave
