A bit of a update
The gas tank is out, the gas wiring is 90% out, the interior is almost all out & the engine bay is 50% stripped. Just need to remove the wiring for the gas that goes to the boot for the gas gauge, the rest of the gas pipework, ditch the battery tray (kind of corroded), remove the fuel tank, remove the motor wiring in one piece (to be used in my mustang), & remove the motor & gearbox (also for the mustang). This leaves me with two questions. Where does the positive wire for the Idle Air Control go to? When the gas was in it, it was hooked to the main power wire for the EFI behind the intake manifold. Also, how do you remove the evaporator out of the car? I cannot see any bolts around the unit in the car at all.

i installed a key switch in one for a mate of mine. he had neons and wanted a quick way to turn them off so cops couldnt get him. turn the key - kills power - cops come up as to flick switches and nothing happens.

tho the starter looks good

Pushed the car outside today to give the garage a clean out. Also gave the engine bay a degreese as well, removed the battery tray & painted the area where the tray was.

Hmm, haven't decided yet. I've started to make my own alternator bracket by using a part of a 351c march performance bracket and making another part of it using aluminum. It's nearly finished so I"ll get a photo up when my camera gets charge. Btw, what is the size difference between the ford badge and the fpv badge?
