I also replaced the pilot bearing that the shaft fits in to.

Line up the 3 pins on the flywheel.

A new throw out bearing comes with FMS clutch. Lightly grease the pivot points on the clutch fork.

Adjust the front shocks high enough to allow the engine hoist to fit under the frame.

Check out that new hoist.

Be careful not to ding the footbox with the air tube when installing the engine

I'm liking that perfectly centered shifter.

Removing the fuel line connector. First remove the clamp.

I made a tool from a piece of hose clamp

Shove the tool into the connector & pull it apart.


I used a wire brush to abrade the plastic hose This made it easier to remove.

Cleaned up hose barb.

Double flares on the ends of the fuel lines prevent the hose from pulling off

The passenger side header is VERY close to the engine mount. It might need some tweaking.

Passenger side J pipe.

Remote oil filter

Clutch pedal looks a little high. More tweaking.

I made an aluminum spacer to move the clutch cable away from the oil lines.

The Alternator rectifier plug on Ford 2G alternators has been know to over- heat.

It's best to replace the plug if it is loose from being reinstalled several times
