Ford SHO mid engine RWD in a Fiero Redneck dune buggy
Initial Startup, running in the parking lot by my shop. A few donuts, a few
drifts and some straight line runs. A piss poor attempt to laying a patch!
My friends and I have spent over 400 hours building this car. It is caged
with race seats and harness belts. I plated the chassis and completely
rebuilt the back end of the frame to suit my driving needs! I used the
subframe from the Taurus SHO and modified it to fit the Fiero. I also
plated the subframe and added a 1/2" thick aluminum skidplate! This baby is
built to drive the piss out of it! :D
It will be interesting when I start running exotic blends of fuel, as I am
only starting off with some 87 Octane fuel to start with here. More to come
I have an MTX and a auto Tranny I am willing to sell!

Ford Taurus 3.0L 12v Timing Cover Coolant Leak Repair
This is my favorite gasket set to complete this job-
If the front cover is pitted here is a complete kit front cover included-
If the water pump is needed this is the one to get-
This is the serpentine belt tensioner tool I use Here-
This is the Engine Sealant I recommend-
In this video I show how to remove the front cover on the 3.0L 12v Vulcan
engine. Coolant leak from the main coolant ports is very common on these.
This can be a very costly repair, with this video I am sure anyone with any
mechanical experience can handle this job with ease.
