Really excited to see this come together. I didn't realize it's been a year since you got it. For those that don't know, this is the blower off of Jamie's (cobra R Thunderbird) old bird that met a deer. I labeled the harness for ease of installation. Hope to see this running soon.

Its not a Mustang harness. It was on another Bird before I got it.

Admittedly theres some fixes it needs. Like replacing the solid core wires for braided. But thats neither here no there
Yeah, the original "kit" did not include an engine wire harness. Although the vacuum harness did have labels.

Solid wires ?? 🤔 sounds legit.

@Trunk Monkey @Paulyrats and anyone else with an SVO.


Was working on finishing up my vacuum tree and noticed part of the intake gasket on the passenger side rear is exposed. I dont remember noticing it on my PI intake. Can one of yall look at your cars and see if its exposed for you too? If not I think I need to pull the blower off.

Its lined up everywhere else, all bolts threaded in and the snout pulley is in line with every other pulley on the engine.

Its like that with the NA intakes too, it’s a dry hole. The head castings and intake gaskets are left/right interchangable, remember, that hole is the thermostat bypass on the left head, while on the right head it simply goes unused to nowhere

Switched out the trans pan gasket, filter, and dip stick O ring. Hoping that solves my transmission leak.
Hopefully. My 4R70w leaked like a sieve(part of the motivating factor with the manual swap) which turned out to be the pump seal, it trailed down through the TC plug and at speed soaked around the pan so it was hard to pinpoint it’s origin. I think the dipstick tube seal leaked as well even though I replaced that with that trans

This is the #1 reason why I parked mine. #2 was obviously suspension. I have the parts to do everything already, but yeah....

Would it be possible to mount all that stuff under the console in where the storage cubby is, and just have the handle coming out where the original e-brake came out?
