Notes from the Shop

I have absolutely no idea what to write about today. I have been so crazy busy with work and trying to get the Mustang up and running that I haven't had time to stop and think of a good post for this week. So I am going to give you a shop update.

The boxing plates came in for the 53 this week so hopefully I will get those welded up on my next day off. The engine in the Mustang has been disconnected from everything but the motor mounts. We will pull it out hopefully later today. I have officially decided on a new engine. As we began to take things off the current engine we discovered lots of corrosion and the water pump is basically rusted on. The bolts were so rusty and stuck they basically all twisted off but one. Today we will drop the transmission support and hoist it out. I will salvage what I can and the rest will go to the bone yard. My next decision is to settle on a replacement engine and get it ordered along with the disk break conversion kit. I also need to make a final decision on rims and tires. I hope to media blast the body with in the next four weeks and get it ready for paint.

On a school note: The girls have started reviewing their very first Crew Product for the year. So far they are enjoying it and I will give you a hint it's a math product. We have one chapter left in our math curriculum and we will move on to Missouri History.

Have a great week everyone!
