I didn't even look at the rest of the shifter... just thought the skull knob reflected your crazy wild self.

Sorry I didn't see this earlier. I used a Hurst shifter that is 12" from the floor. I did use one of the optional shifters from Modern Drivelines, but not the most expensive one. I think I am using the same ball that you show. Here is a bad pic of my shift lever. Larry

A big box arrived yesterday with my new transmission. That's all I have so far. I still need to buy all of the other stuff to go with it. Things like clutch, bellhousing etc.

Yeah Christmas never ends when your building a falcon.

Picture it up, it's easier to see it now than crawl under your car!

I'm finally getting started on this swap. Exhaust is removed with a little help from the sawzall. The drive-shaft is out and most of the fasteners.


BTW - Does anyone have a 10 spline clutch pilot tool I can borrow? The one that came in my new clutch was broken.

I have a universal kit. One size fits most. I may have splined version too. Have a few. What's the OD?

The C4 is officially out thanks to some help from Kenny. I have the new blockplate, flywheel, and pilot bearing installed.

Larry - I sent you a PM.

I made some progress today. The the clutch is installed and the bellhousing. And yes, that is burgundy powder coating on the back of the engine block in case anyone was wondering.

The tranny is in. I need to get my drive shaft shortened a bit. I also need to make a small mod near the cross member to allow the electric speedo connector to fit without binding.

It's a very tight fit. I had to cut off a 1/4" tab on the left side of the top cover in order to allow the transmission to clear the tunnel.

I need to get my pedal parts back from Steve before I can do anything.

I'll drop the driveshaft off at Drivelines NW on Tuesday.

I managed to do a a little work this weekend.

The newly shortened driveshaft is installed and has a perfect 3/4" of exposed yoke on the slip joint.

I had to grind away a small amount of material in the cross brace to make room for the speedometer sending unit plug. The new tranny is has an electronic sending unit instead of a cable. It's in the same place as the cable would be and the plug would not allow the tranny to go high enough to sit on the new T5 crossmember.

Speaking of crossmembers, this new T5 crossmember has the parking brake pivot welded on too high. The parking brake parts touch the driveshaft. I'll need to cut that off and weld it back on one inch lower.

I'm also fiddling around with the exhaust. I have some 2 1/4" mandrel bent pieces from Summit Racing and I'm trying to figure out how to best go about fitting them in. There is a boss on the left side of the Ford Mustang T5 bellhousing for use with cable operated clutches. I'll be using a hydraulic clutch and might just cut this thing off. It would make the exhaust routing much easier.

I'm slowly pecking away at this swap. I cut and rewelded the parking brake bracket. The modified crossmember fits very well.

I also started fitting the exhaust pieces this evening. The photo shows the beginning of the right side header connection.

I have to go to Portland this weekend so this will delay things further. I hope to have this thing done the following weekend.

How did your pedal assembly turn out? Did I plug all the right places?
