Helped A Friend With Some Exploratory Surgery Today

Relax, it was on his '68 Mustang. We were just checking out the cooling system. Previous owner, who built the engine, decided not to use a thermostat. . The core support is also mutilated, so getting a better radiator fit will be a bit of a trick. However, we now know what's going on inside the cooling passages.


On a somewhat unrelated note, my F150's going to need a new fan clutch this spring. old one's starting to move in directions it shouldn't move in, and IMO it freewheels TOO easily. Still works right now, but I wanna replace it before I overheat the engine.

I also helped him get his '95 Mustang to go again, albiet indirectly. Somehow, he managed to break the ignition tumbler trying to start it one day. Went to turn the key and it just spun. Went to pull key out and the tumbler came out. I showed him a Dave's Farm vid, where Dave was starting a '96 Thunderbird(Ironically with the same 3.8 V6) by sticking a screwdriver in where the tumbler went. Friend went home, fiddled with it a bit, tore the trim off, beat the living crap out of the column with a hammer, and now he can use the same trick to drive his '95 again. Good thing, too, as it doesn't like to overheat because of a lacking thermostat and no rad cap.


I AM the extended warranty!
