Been a busy week so I never got the pics up from last weekend (and the website was down for a bit).

So I just tried posting a bunch of pics from Google photos and that totally doesn't work. I'll make a new post with some pics....
do the bread... since I have done the grease.

all my photos are from google photos, I view them in slideshow then grab the link of the pic; but you have to make sure the album is public first.

I would wager that you won't actually notice it in your butt-o-meter.

But, the MMR unit looks way cooler... I might get one just for that reason.

I'll see if I can get the google photos to work, I'll double check the permissions on them, thanx. Also I've added Wonderbread to the shopping list for this coming weekend =)

Ya, the total reduction in rotational mass is for REALLY min/maxing every last ounce of HP but since it looks so cool and it doesn't exactly break the bank, so why not?

Got the front main seal off the donor motor today but I couldn't get the new one in. Stuck the new one in the freezer for an hour and it went right in. Also my OTC bushing service set had the perfect size "seal driver" in it. OTC 39976 if anyone is wondering.

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

I haven't gotten as much done this weekend as I wanted to. I have been totally worn out, had a strange sleep issue this week for no reason 2 nights so I'm down like 8 hours of sleep for the week right now. Haven't been able to catch any extra Z's so I'm running low on energy.

Last weekend I pulled my front bumper off and removed my oil filter relocation setup. I ended up just cutting the hoses since i need to replace them anyways. I'll need to take this all apart and clean everything thoroughly to make sure there aren't any metal shavings in any of the nooks and crannies in there. Probably need to replace the gaskets in the adapter block for the motor as well.

If you guys don't have any oil filter relocation setup, it is worth it for 3 reasons. First, you don't spill oil all over your steering rack every time you change the oil, second you can use the older 5.0 pushrod filter instead of the tiny tiny baby 4.6L filter and third you get a little more oil capacity for your oil system. All of these are things i think are good. There are obviously tons of kits out there for this but I ended up building out my own. Not sure if it was any cheaper but I got it done my way and I've been happy with it for years.

Re: 03 Mach 1 open heart surgery

Last weekend I also pulled the sway bar out and then unbolted the AC pump from the block. I tied some rope to the sway bar mount on the passenger side of the car and hung the AC pump off to the side.

I'm hoping I can pull off the same thing on the drivers side with the power steering pump but I think the only way to get to one of the mounting bolts is to remove one of the lines

This weekend I pulled the rest of the suspension off of the front of the car. My MM CC kit bump stops were absolutely thrashed and completely deteriorated. I put in an order for a new pair yesterday, I had no idea they had taken such a beating over the last few years. They were still in great shape the last time I'd seen them.

I'm probably going to take this opportunity to install the Global West front control arm bushings I'd bought a while back. I'm particularly unhappy with the Energy suspension kit that I got in there a while back. It has never fit quite right even though I replaced the metal bushing shells in the arms. I might post a thread on that if you guys are interested in it but I'm not going to touch that project until I've got the donor motor in the K and the K back in the car.

You are so close to going tube K-member and coil overs. frees up a ton of space FWIW... not trying to add to your budget.. .lol

The Joe's Racing adapter lets me put an oil temp sensor in without restricting the oil flow. I might be able to dig up the part number for you if you want.

I know, I know.... I almost bought a full Maximum setup but I just want to get the car back on the road with as little effort as possible. When I do a coyote swap I'll be going full Maximum.
