So I've fitted a new solid cam, ran it in then removed the engine. Next I'm pulling the engine down to change a couple of things inside , fitting a 5 speed, fitting a 28 spline diff with disks, fitting a manual rack and painting the engine bay .

So I've been concentrating on getting the t5 to fit without cutting into the hump. First I fitted a mustang extension housing, didn't just drop on. Found the issue, it was fouling on the 5th gear. After some grinding got it to fit. Before and after.



Now looks pretty much the same at the falcon with the same depth.

Made some engine blocked and pulled the motor forward about 25mm, still need to clean them up. Plenty clearance between the water pump and radiator .



This is where the shifter comes through now. Picture taken with box in 4th gear, will be trimming about 20mm off for I bit more clearance .

about all I did this week was straighten  this and filled some holes in the engine bay. The metal was stretched so was a bit of a pain.

This week only got half way through rebuilding the rack, went to slam it back together this morning but needs some more shims on the pinion. Looks like I'll be heading to the local self serve wreckers this week.

. Progress has stopped on this. I bought a xf ute that needed a quick tidy up. All most done with it now then back into the corty.





I haven't done any panel work in about 15years so it was good experience to clean this up before I start on the cortys body.

sometimes you need these little distractions to pull you away to keep you motivated long term. i just have a habit of getting distracted too soon and before too long have several quick projects on the go.

Yep, this ones a quick project. Haven't put too much effort into it, just a quick cut weld bog then paint.
After that probably going to throw the cortys motor in it, was going to change half the parts in the motor anyway so may as well just build a new motor for the corty.

Yeah maybe fg 4.0 DOHC.
Think it will cost less to build to then a xflow.

Think I've changed my mind on the fg motor, don't know what I'm going to do, probably will just go with a solid cam xflow.

Got my spoiler today, needs restoring.
Hope to be getting stuck back into the corty around February
