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.

The Show & Tell (and drive) of the 1978 Ford Fairmont
I finally decided to film this car after putting it off due to weather, lack of enthusiasm, not enough tape in the camera, and/or not sure how to present this. It will need some work, mainly the engine needing a tune up and cosmetics. And on a side note; I had a car like this (1982 model) during my High School days. WARNING: An S-Bomb was dropped @ 4:29, and some unnecessary screaming and a MF-Bomb was done @ 9:33. Although I did put a warning banner for the latter (but not the former), I felt that I should remind you that this does have language, and viewer discretion IS advised. All that said, please to enjoy. Any questions, ask.

1979 Ford Fairmont Lighting Upgrade -EricTheCarGuy
This video works as a good guide for replacing these older sealed beam headlights. Given that you don't see this type of headlamp much anymore, the ones you do find tend to get a bit rusty. The parts can also be hard to find if you break something. You can use the tricks in this video to help guide you through headlight replacement on an older vehicle like this and also to help prepare for aiming them later. When Sylvania reaching out to me and asked if I'd like to try their Silverstar headlights in my 1979 Ford Fairmont, I said sure, I'll try them out. They were also kind enough to send me some Silverstar tail lights to go with them. I feel both are a vast improvement over the stock lamps. Thanks for hooking me up Sylvania.

Introduced for the 1978 model year, the Fairmont was produced in several bodystyles until it was replaced by the Ford Tempo for the 1984 model year. The Fairmont was the successor to the Maverick; its Mercury counterpart was the Mercury Zephyr, which replaced the Comet. The Fairmont and Zephyr marked the introduction of the long-running Ford Fox platform, used for a wide variety of later models. Those most closely related to the Fairmont included the 1980--1982 Ford Thunderbird, the 1981--1982 Ford Granada, the 1979--1993 Ford Mustang (and 1979--1986 Mercury Capri), and the 1982--1987 Lincoln Continental.





Turbo Camaro SS build episode 1 building the header
This is the first episode of seven total documenting the build up of the 1996 turbo Camaro SS. I build the header in this video. It's made out of 1 3/4" mild steele tubing, and merges into a 2.5" collector. I am using a HKS GT-II 60mm waste gate. The engine is a 383 LT-1 with a Compstar rotating assembly, Trick Flow heads, and a 88 mm Precision turbo.





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.
