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
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.
LSx Turbo Ford Fairmont Build Video #6 (Coil Over/CC Plate Install)
In this video I install coil over springs on my existing shocks/struts,
they had to be modified slightly. I also installed the caster camber plates
to support the weight of the car on the strut towers.

We took the Fox Body Fairmont out for a little test drive. This thing
sounds wicked and launches like crazy. The Exhaust setup includes a set of MAC long tube
headers, a modified BBK x-pipe, and Jones mufflers coupled with a set of
Pipes flow tubes. The 4.6L Mustang 3V engine is being run by the
Ford Racing Controls Pack (M-6017-463V).

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.

The Ford Fairmont is a compact car produced by Ford Motor Company for the
North American market. 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.
