New bullet for the "Brick"
#61
Got some more parts in - these are for the transmission. Lightened sun shell and aluminum forward clutch drum. These along with the transbrake & low gear set will be the only changes to the transmission besides a freshening. I'll cover more on this later.

Well,
I have finished the block water jacket fill (some time back) now the block is at the machine shop for a line bore and to get the deck squared. I finished the idiot light panel, I wired in a 6-pin connector for easy removal if needed -

I wanted to clean up the wiring while the engine was out. I had a few wires going thru the firewall via misc. holes. I will now have most of them pass thru the factory bulkhead connector. The bottom row of the upper connecter now houses the oil pressure, water temp, alt light & trans temp circuits. The bulkhead connector used Packard 56 series terminals.

I am also updating the brake system - new Strange master cylinder with the line-loc relocated to the the master via a Jegs bracket.

11751

I had to build all new brake lines for the front brakes and install a new proportioning valve.

11753

I also needed to do some paint repair on the firewall - the old master seeped a bit.

I whipped up a drawing and had some brackets water jet cut - these will adapt the mustang brakes to the Dana 60. I still need to weld on some 5/16 thick spacers to them and drill some holes. They will bolt and weld onto the axle tube flanges.

11762

I took the wiper motor off to clean it up and replace the gasket. I also covered the wires with split loom - I will be doing this with all the under hood wiring.

11763

Got some more parts in too -

Looking great! I especially like the packard crimps. I always struggle with the insulation crimp on the packard connectors - the wire crimp is fine. Don't think I ever did find quite the right crimper for the insulation............

I had trouble with the wire crimps on the male terminals. I had to file the tangs thinner to be able to crimp them, the females were easy.

Andy,

The prop valve Is a Jegs copy of a wilwood valve.

Idiot light panel installed - I decided to clean up the dash before I installed it then I noticed how crappy looking the dash knobs and bezels were, so I cleaned them up too.

11769

I used CLR, tooth paste and a tooth brush to clean all the knobs & bezels - not show quality but much nicer than before -

Radio knobs - Left after, right before
