So, now that I've finally got around to installing my new(er)
engine, my clutch is slipping.
I have a world class T5 from a 1988 Mustang V8. It needs a
refresh. Tag number is 13-52-169
I have a Kaplhenke adapter and bellhousing, and a spare propshaft
What I really want is the...
I'm doing a G80 swap on my step-son's M47 '89 245. He is taking it
tree-planting in northern Alberta next week and we are trying to
make it bush capable.
Both the half-shafts and the differental carrier popped out easily
from the axle. When I put a G80 into our '82 a few years ago, I
had to tap...
I was lucky enough to find a low mile 1995 B230FD. I have it on a
stand with the head off, and I'm trying to determine the piston
deck height so that I can order a Cometic MLS head gasket of an
appropriate thickness for tight squish.
This motor will get a 15g turbo from an 850 and will have a...
Today our '82 242 lost its rear windshield with a bang. While
driving normally, apparently it made a sound like a gunshot and
broke into thousands of little cubes. The glass is still
together, but it is impossible to see through, and obviously
needs to be replaced.
This past winter, we picked...
Our teenage daughter apparently backed over something and damaged
the fuel tank on our '75 245. I say apparently as the damage is
quite apparent, but she has no idea what happened.
The tank suffered a pretty serious dent, with a crack at the
vertex of the worst wrinkle. The crack leaked just...
I harvested a 1041 axle from the 945 I scrapped recently.
The low mile G80 will be going into my 245. The 4.10:1 ring and
pinion are wrapped up for storage for now.
I came up with a good use for the leftovers:
I just cut out the pumpkin and welded the two halves together...
Our 1982 B23E powered 242 spent a winter in Thunder Bay, and the
exhaust is all rusted out.
I'm wondering if replacing the crush-bent 2" system on the 242
with a mandrel bent 2.5" system will throw k-jet off?
The car has the high compression B23E, with a K cam (the cam has
a fair bit of valve...
I did the G80 swap last fall in our 242 and it made the snow so
much better last winter. I measured the backlash and took a
pattern when I swapped the carriers to ensure the gears did not
have a short life. Everything worked out with no messing about
with shims, I simply swapped them over from...
We have a Canadian market 242GLT, with the B23E engine
The transmission (M46) sucks, it is getting hard to get it into
first gear, and shifts in general suck.
The tranny and clutch are original to the car. The car has
320,000km (about 200,000 miles).
I managed to pull a M47...
I've just got my car running on a FreeEMS EMS that I built
myself. It is the seventh car to run on the code, and the second
The car is a 1979 Canadian market 245DL with a B21A. It is the
carburetted version of the redblock, with a single sidedraft SU.
The original ignition...
