Oil Drain Location and Information

Oil Drain Location and Information
  1. Drain fittings in pan. The sketch in the corner of Diagram 6 is almost dead accurate regarding the number of holes and their position. The only variation is the position of the second hole. It is actually slightly closer to the corner than shown. It is essential that the fittings be installed as shown.
  2. Moulded drain hoses. The end trimming of these varies slightly. Shorten the straight section (if necessary) which pushes over the drain tube on the turbo. the first 90º bend in the moulded hose should commence immediately at the end of the tube.
  3. Engine mounts. The 87 prefix mounts must be used (or Moroso solid mounts, which Jake Lamotta assures me are streetable, if the rubber gearbox mount is retained).
  4. Engine position. Guys, this is truly critical. The engine can and must be positioned as follows: a) 3/8" clearance at each of the following three positions. The frame rail notch, proportioning valve heat shield and steering shaft. When the engine is high enough on the RHS, the moulded drain hose will sit on the K member surface, unkinked. b) However, after you have done this correctly, an unrelated problem may occur. With the stock OEM pipe, you will still have sufficient clearance at the rear crossmember. With aftermarket H pipes though, especially 2 1/2" or 3", you may not. The H pipe must be mofidifed, not the engine position compromised. If this is done correctly, the K member requires no modification and the drain flows as designed.

  • Ever have one of those days? One of those days when everything seems to go wrong? You woke up late, lost the car keys, you're late for work and if that isn't enough your stang starts to piss coolant all over the place. Well it probably could have been prevented.

    Basic maintenance of the cooling system in your "Stang" will not only prevent your Mustang from leaking antifreeze all over the place but it will also prevent a blown head gasket, and other major engine damage. Many people get their oil changed often, but how many remember to change their antifreeze/coolant?

  • Changing your oil is one of the best things you can do for your car. You can't change it too often. There's no easier way to keep that 302 running good than changing its oil.

    Things You May Ask Before You Buy:

  • Removal of the water pump is fairly simple, requires a decent Standard/Metric 6pt and 12pt socket set, and a few other basic hand tools.

  • Tranny fluid... How often do you even think of changing your automatic fluid? Probably not that often, not until it starts to slip, but then its too late. To many people changing the tranny fluid and filter seems a little bit of out of reach for them to do....whether it seems too hard to do, or if its just the fact they don't know how to do it. In reality its pretty easy to do, although it might get a little messy, it shouldn't be hard at all.

  • Ok, it is time to put the c4 in.
