Pictures from underneath the car
is a wide, high resolution shot of the T5 installed. Notice
the relation of the crossmember to the exhaust hanger on the exhaust
is the same, but at a lower resolution.
is also of the transmission, taken from below, at a slightly wide angle to
show the transmission mount relative to the crossmember better.
Picutres from inside the car
shows the location of the shifter relative to the interior of the car,
while in 3rd gear. Notice also the cut carpet behind it where the RAD
shifter was located
shows the shifter relative to its original location, from a top
perspective. A stainless steel plate as been installed where the old
shifter previously came through, and the whole can be easily seen in the
is of the rear seat. (This is also a good example of what happens when you don't
white-balance a camera before taking a picture on a sunny day)
A couple of notes:
- We used the original bellhousing. This changes the alignment of the
engine, transmission, etc., compared to the more common approach of
finding a newer mustang's bellhousing.
- We had a new driveshaft made. The original was too short with the new
transmission. The T5 is very close in length to the RAD4 but we
couldn't make it reach with the mustang II bell.
- The exhaust pipe you see in the pictures is also not original. It is
from a 74 (2.3L) pinto wagon. Your exhaust may or may not have a bracket
at that exact location. (and probably isn't as shiny, after I had this
one cermachromed for rust resistance)
Some historic moments...
This image is of The moment
my odometer turned over. I don't recall the date, but the photo was
dated april 3, 2003. (this date almost coincides exactly to the car's
That happened on the way to Superior
Ford, where I was going to take picutres of my car at its original
dealership for its 25th
I have found some older pictures that I took of this car, years ago...
Each picture, with the exception of
"78pass.bmp", is around
500K. 78pass.bmp is much larger, due to the bitmap format. These
pictures were taken summer 2002 or earlier, near Medicine Lake in
from when I removed the dash.
These pictures were from
approximately the same time, when I removed the dash to replace a burnt
out bulb. I took these pictures largely for my own benefit to get
everything back together in the right way. Yes, it really is easier to
replace the bulbs that way for the dash. If you try to do them from
below, you have to do it all strictly by feel.
