LSx Turbo Ford Fairmont Build Video #13 (Overview and Transmission Crossmember Mockup)
The motor is back in with the new FBody Oil pan. The motor is buttoned up and bolted in. Here we do a quick overview and begin to mockup up the transmission crossmember. Should be a bolt in ordeal. Cross member and brackets are from 4 Cylinder Mustang 1987-1993 http://ibuyhorsepower.com/





Volvo 940 Oil Disaster and the sloppy fix
The distributor plug blew out causing oil top spray all over my engine bay. I managed to fix it and make it home with a hallmark card and solid core wire.





LSx Turbo Ford Fairmont Build Video #8 (Working on the motor)
Just finishing up some things on the motor. Oil pan is tapped for -10AN Drain Line, Timing cover realigned. Newer water pump is placed on motor as well as tensioner. I bought a new LS2/second gen/2piece thermostat.





LSx Turbo Ford Fairmont Build Video #4 (Balancer Removal)
I know, I know. Its a full video simply dedicated to the removal of the balancer / crank pulley. Maybe it can be used as a reference for fellow LSx minded people. The tool was rented from Advance Auto Parts, it was $106 to rent. All of the money was refunded when the tool was returned. I used a 15/16" 6pt Impact Socket on the balancer/pulley bolt. We had to torch it because it was not playing nice.

1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look -EricTheCarGuy
Many of you have been asking me about Fairmont videos so I thought I would make this one where I take a closer look at what I have to work with. I also talk about some of my plans for this car going forward. I think I have a really nice 'shell' to work with. I have my work cut out for me that's for sure, but as I say in the video, that will just make for more interesting videos. For now, I think I'll drive it. It's a good car after all. A few minor issues, but nothing to really worry about. I may do some of the repairs such as the inner tie rod in an upcoming video. I just need to work out the alignment when I'm done. Looks like an easy job though, easier than some of the other power steering rack stuff I've done. Anyway, enjoy the video. Here's some links.
