Set the car up on jack stands in preparation for a tank drop to replace the fuel pump and all the fuel lines. Redid the wiring to the terminal block and looked over new fuel line routing options for the 4.9.

My oil pressure sender stuck on my 86 GT last night, kept the fuel pump running until the battery was dead this morning.
Wired in an 88 style tonight, no battery drain now & the gauge quit jumping around also!

Pulled her out of storage cleaned the seats, carpet and dusted it off. Plan on using it as a daily driver over the next week, just to get it on the road for a few weeks. She's been sitting too long.

I put my interior mostly back in. The center console is still out. Over the winter, I plan to pull everything out, including the steering column, carpet & headliner, then do a rust treatment.

Began break down front suspension to get ready for my HT Motorsports Sport Suspension and 13" brake swap. I have everything but the control arms off the driver side and only the wheel off the passenger side. I'm going to hit it hard and fast first thing in the morning.

Broke it. Somehow the shift interlock got messed up so I forced the ignition key forwards and broke something. Can't start the car and can't get it out of accessory mode. Neat.

So... Is this a safe way to keep it elevated? lol





I did some more removing of parts to make room for the new suspension including the upper crossmember brackets. The crossmember has to be trimmed to mount the coil-overs.



Still need to take off more of the bump stop cone.

Got the tank reinstalled and new hoses from the tank with male A/N fittings and cut the steel braided lines to length. Only thing left to do is install the ends on the fuel lines and connect them to the tank lines.
I also cut down a 4 cylinder thermostat housing and the end off a spare 4.9 water inlet to get them ready for welding so I can put a better filler neck on the engine.

Oil & filter change. Tried the 4.3L V6 filter but the 88 suspension mount in the way. Worked on some potential rust in the right rear wheel well area. Sprayed rustproof in the area and on the bottom of the car. Freed up sticky sliders on the right rear caliper and installed new pads. Getting the car ready for a trip to Dearborn.

Detailed her. First buffed with Polishing compound, then Caranba wax. Then chased an electric gremlin - passenger side rear view mirror wasn't working. Found a real shoddy splice job that the body shop did when they painted the car five years ago. Removed bad splices, soldered in new wire, and new four pin connectors.

Then put about 50 miles on her, and then back to storage. Going to take her to a car show next weekend.

you car is one of my favs
I need to make room in my garage to get my snow blower out for winter.
So it's motivated me a bit to get wrenching.

Finally got around to buying new gaskets.
I installed the new gaskets, ported LIM ( also plugged the coolant ports) 1.9 rockers, IC and ported blower

Swapped the 98 alternator setup for the 99 I had because I liked the look and also had new metal coolant pipes.
The LIM gaskets were blown .. and there's some nasty sludge in the ports.. Im debating on whether I should do the oil pan gasket too..
