Yeah, I plan on replacing it for you. Hopefully today, because the mill is still set up ready to make more of the first half.

Gonna go call this place now, hope their online inventory is correct.

<p>Awesome keep me updated. Going to try to do the rears? Or should I go get some standard 1.8 rear rotors.</p>

For now go with standard rears. The rears are a **********, going to take some creativity to hold them in the vice for the second milling operation.

Assuming you need these mailed out by the 18th

The Thunderboid G3 (iirc) 100+ amp internally regulated alternator mod is also a must. I picked one up from the junkyard for like $20 and replaced the brushes for another $20. Done and done.

Does your truck have the thermostatic fan clutch? Mine is direct drive so if the engine is spinning, the fan is spinning. Super sucks for warmup. At some point I plan on removing the mechanical fan in favor of the Thunderbird 2 speed electric fan, once I find 9,000 amp relays to handle the fan amperage.

</p><p>I have 2 extra miata AC fans. Going to mount them as pusher fans. Currently the truck overheats in traffic almost instantly, so if I see traffic I pull a u-turn.</p>

Mine might as well not have a thermostat, it'll cool all day long on the bypass

Of course, I also have a Camper Special so the cooling system and radiator has about 3x more volume than anything else Ford ever put an FE into. The radiator is pretty much irreplaceable, I've never seen a replacement that matches the dimensions.

<p>I blew mine twice in 2 weeks. First it froze, then the replacement got impaled by my battery about 20 miles off road in the snow. It was a long drive home stopping every 5 minutes to pour 12 oz water bottles into the radiator to keep it cool.</p>

What do you need to know more than that?

The horizontal port on the vics solenoid goes to the actuator and the vertical port goes to the vacuum nipple on the bottom of the intake manifold between the runners for 3 and 4. The hose with the check valve in it goes from the tee at the front of the lower intake manifold to the port underneath the fuel rail.

Tats exactly what i needed just couldn't read it. Eds manifold is missing the Vic's solenoid so I'm going to wire up one of the random emissions solenoids.
<br />The VICS is just a standard 12v solenoid right?

I think so, but I've never tried swapping it.

I don't know how I missed this, you are paying people with my generosity? I don't even know yank, but he doesn't get free machine time.

Brackets are done. One set is for you. Please e-mail me your address when you get a chance.
