    Body and Engine Removal

    I removed the body Edwardb style. I welded that rack which I clamped to the lift out of $42 worth of scrap steel from our local distributor





    The next time this engine goes in it is staying. I hope...

    An addiction, that once you drive her - you can never truly shake!

    Hi Mark,

    I've spent a lot of this morning reading this thread during breaks before work, lunchtime, and in meetings. I really enjoy your build and sense of humour ("Ask me how I know.")

    I have been on the forum for over a year with the full intention of building a FFR 818. I even have the donor sitting in my driveway for the past year. My original plan was to build the 818 first and then after having that experience build the Cobra. The Cobra has been a dream of mine for over 40 years. I even saw an original 289 Cobra sell for $43k CDN at an auction in 1982, but I was too poor to even consider it. After reading all the difficulties the 818 builders are having with bodywork and windows in the coupe, I'm thinking that the Cobra might be easier and more satisfying -- although more costly. To investigate the build issues on the Cobra, I started to look at some build threads. This is where I found your thread among others. The information is great in all the build threads and i am making notes on all of the learnings (i.e. mistakes) done by others before me. With any luck, I can minimize the costly mistakes in my build.

    BTW, I have total garage envy! You have a great space for your build. Keep the posts and photos coming!

    Cheers!
    Russ

    Thanks for the input Russ, I'm glad your getting something out of my build thread. I'm really having fun building this thing. Those 818s look like a fun build as well. Reading as many threads as you can is a great idea to help you avoid costly mistakes. The downside is you will find all kinds of cool mods which will run up the cost!

    Rear brake line re-routing, 3rd time

    I re-routed my rear brake flex lines, for the third time, to clear the UCA, CV axle and coil over with more room. I think this is more consistent with the manual and still allows me access to the lines when the car is completed. I appreciate Edwardb's note of concern with my 2nd routing placement.

    Looks great, Mark. Where did you source the knob for your engine hoist leveler? The crappy plastic one didn't last through one installation.

    Thanks Dave, yeah that leveler works well but the handle was a piece of garbage. Here's what I replaced it with

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I double checked on the J.W. Winco website to make sure the stud size was correct. M10 -1.0 or 1.5 I think. Anyway, it works great!

    ABS Brake install

    I've been at this ABS mod for a long time and have talked to alot of folks. I'm not sure I can make this work but here is what I've come up with. This is a 4 channel ABS module from a 2013 Mustang GT. I wanted to use a 2015 model to match the IRS but believe it or not the wrecking companies kept sending them to me without the wiring harnesses attached! I found the wiring manual on Ebay.



    I welded the mounting bracket on PS front.





    Here it is with the brake lines installed

    Mark,

    You Must Really Plan To Go Fast Since You're Installing ABS To Stop That Sucker!
    This feature will really be unique for sure on a Factory Five.
    Keep Wrenching Doc, Keep Wrenching!
