Re: wanted radio

Looks like you are right, the 04 head unit does use different plugs. I did a quick check and it seems like no one has been able to make the 04 unit work in the earlier cars or at least no one has...

Re: wanted radio

Far as I know the radios are all the same for the 03 and up Mustangs with Mach 460. I'm not sure if the regular head units are the same as the Mach 460 ones. I know the earlier 2 din head units are...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

Last night I put the interior back together and set the initial adjustment on the clutch. This morning I put the car back up and finished torquing the suspension bolts. I also drained the trans and...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

I've called Felpro and spoke with tech. They took plenty of notes including my VIN number and cell phone. Hopefully I can get the to correct this. He is sending it up to the "higher ups". If...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

TL;DR Felpro has the application wrong for the oil filter adapter gasket. Felpro part number 70415 is wrong, use Felpro part number 70801.

OK guys so here is the deal. I went to fill the cooling...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

The front alternator bolts are indeed the proper place to lift the front of the motor from. Ford has a bracket specific to that but I just used the chains that came with the engine support bar. It...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

The ones in the front of the block are fairly large bolts, I could see that working. I'll see what I can find out.

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

I have the intake manifold on so I'm not really sure where I would hook the engine support brace to. Maybe I can just use a bolt on the front of the heads since the rear is hooked to the trans and...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

I seem to be running into errors upload pics. Has anyone else run into this?

At this point I've got the motor/trans back in the car and the kmember bolts are snug. I need to align the K so any...

Re: Coolant Crossover Tube

Since you have your crossover tube, you could have a machine shop build a repair part and then have someone weld it on for you. Depends if you have a friend at a machine shop or know a decent place...

Re: Coolant Crossover Tube

As I understand it, the part is obsolete from Ford so used is your only option at this point. The part however should be available from almost any 4.6L 4v motor, you shouldn't need one from a Mach...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

Welp, I decided not to go with the electric pump. I have it partially disassembled and I'll see if I can figure out how to gracefully get it apart some other time. For now I bought an Edelbrock...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

OK, so I've been back home for a little while. When I got back, the PNW had record high temps. Literally the hottest in history. It was 112-116 that weekend and roughly 60% humidity. That...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

That is a good question. The motor was running rough and I'm fairly sure I felt/heard the chain snap so I suppose it is possible the cam stopped turning and that is why the chain snapped. When I...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

Well, I think we know what caused the engine to finally stop working.... It is a lot more obvious in the second picture. I had a pic of the broken chain but somehow it got corrupted on my phone. ...

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

I didn't get too much done two weekends ago. Just got the balancer off the old motor and cleaned things up a bit. This past weekend though I got the old motor out of the cradle and completely took...
