What did you do to your Fox 5.0 today?

If there is one it's obviously dead. But I figured I would try to see what us bad ass 5.0 pushrod guys are doing....


I swapped out my power brake booster today. Kinda nice having power brakes. What did you do to your Fox 5.0 today?-imageuploadedbyag-free1413756804.579958.jpg it was a ergonomic pain in butt.

I walked by both of mine several times today and blew some leaves out from under them with the leaf blower. I still need a $1 plastic fuel line locking clip to finish my fuel tank swap on my 88 and I haven't got around to doing it in the last month.

I put my new registration sticker on the license plate

It's getting to that time of year where the weather is going to be too nasty to bother doing anything to it.

Hello everyone. It's been a while since I've been on I sold my 05 about a year ago to get a much needed truck. But now I'm buying 91 foxbody tomorrow Lx 5.0.

It was a beautiful mid 70s to low 80s day in LA, so after taking her to the Pomona Antique Car and Swap meet I drove her around and enjoyed the day.

Then I fixed a vacuum leak that will hopefully resolve an issue when I accelerate, and the fan (blower motor, not radiator fan) slows down. I used this posting.

Lastly, I bought a "1983-93 FORD MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE QUARTER WINDOW GUIDE RESTO KIT - FOX BODY" kit from Late Model Restoration. That will give me a project to do next weekend.

Still shopping for rims. I ordered MM's PHB yesterday and found out my 9" may not fit. Gotta find some 17x8s sounds like now.

Drove it around the block. Probably will drive it to work tomorrow. It feels neglected, I can feel it.

I had my bottle filled at a local shop and shot the bull about what to do next to the car. Ordered some larger nitrous jets for starters. Now internet shopping for short-blocks to adjustable shocks. haha

Blew my drivers side headgasket, then got a call 2 hours later from the machine shop telling me my 347 will be ready for pick up tomorrow after they get done honing it. Soooo any other time I would be pissed but between winter coming and getting ready to rip the engine out in a week or two anyway... Owell lol. They said they couldn't flycut the Pistons for twisted wedge heads which seems weird for a machine shop that works on Nitro funny cars but I'm assuming they know what they are talking about. Maybe the way the piston was designed who knows but I guess I'll have to run either a milder cam or buy some afr's or highports or something. Kinda sucks.

347 in the works for spring.

Nitro engines are a far cry away from a ford small block with twisted wedge heads. Probably never screwed with it and have no clue. I could cut them in my engine room. Just did it for a guy at his house with engine assembled. So can you.
