  • Re: Project Mustang Consolidation

    We both just run a relay and on/off switch. I just turn it on and it runs all the time but you could use a coolant temp switch just as easily.
    Life is short. Be a do'er and not a shoulda done'er.

        I need to rebuild or replace a Moser c-clip eliminator tried to press it off seems like my cheap bearing separator is bending instead of separating. Do I have it set up right? Tips, tricks? Heat? Cold?Click image for larger version

          Russell, sometimes I've had to heat the poo out of the retainer to get them to move. Then, it's a huge POP and off they go. I have the same sleezy bearing separator so I can relate.

              I did get it to move a little in the press. I put the whole deal in the deep freezer. Then hit the bearing with the propane torch. And it started to move. Then the axle flange hit the press frame. I couldn't find a good set of blocks to lift the arbor plats so I just cut it off. If the press was wide enough for the axle flange to pass through I think it would have worked. Summit is sending a new one.

              I will freeze the axle again. I would like to warm the bearing but I am not sure I want to hit the new one with a torch (rubber seals) I thought about getting 100 watt light bulb and putting them in a card board box.

              hopefully it will go on easily.

                  I went to the habitat store and picked up a bearing oven. Axle has been in the freezer for a couple
                  days. I think I will bake it @ 200* for an hour. Don't want toClick image for larger version  Name:	IMG_20180814_130541_883.jpg Views:	1 Size:	897.3 KB ID:	1211960 melt the plastic inside

                    Made a list and been chipping away at it. Cut off the old c-clip eliminator and pressed a new one on last night I froze the axle and baked the eliminator @ 200* for 90 mins. Went ttogether pretty smooth, fingers crossed it's correct.

                    Found a leaking brake cylinder, add that to the list!

                    Very far down on the list is recharge the A/C at some point it lost pressure. And it has been open sence I have done the swap. Tell me if you think my plan will work.

                    Assemble old stuff with new o-rings hook up the pump and see if it will hold a vacuum. If it does, flush it, install new drier, pull vacuum add freon?

                      Got the axle back in, took it for a gentle 4 mile test drive. Seems good, rear end sounds quiter maybe it was not gear noise maybe it was bearings in the eliminator?

                      JP ordered the steal for the box to go on the trailer. Should start on that next week.

                        Installed new door gaskets that I bought over 10 years ago for the 89. Hopefully it will not leak anymore. I installed the rear head liner trim that I picked up from the junk yard. One more thing off the list. Click image for larger version

                          it's never a good idea to rush a repair.

                          rubber needs to age properly to get a good seal

                          notice you didn't bother with the passenger side

                          Doing it all wrong since 1966

                            With out pictures you might not believe it but I did both sides, the coil of snakes is both old gaskets, I say it's one of those around to its. The 89 leaked air from the bottom so I bought the gaskests. The 87 leaked water from the top so I installed them

                              Tonight I decided to wash the car it really needed it it have been putting it off. But it's not on the 17 day critical path to DW, so ADD might be involved. The other excuse was see if it leaks. Answer much less. Rear quarter window leaks alittle and the corner of the door glass leaks some.
