Re: The beast has come...

I think the GT is a sportier looking package, perhaps with ground effects. I prefer LX as I like basic models and don't care for ground effects as I think it detracts from the muscle car look. As it is, this one has more options than I want. Would rather have manual locks and crank windows but both ...

Re: The beast has come...

Here is an article on the 1987 Mustang titled "Five Liters of Fury." This is the same setup through 1992 and same rear gear. Article is in 5 separate images for those interested in reading it. The article has a lot of humor and is hard driving with colorful language. https://www.stangnet.c...

Re: The beast has come...

While the seller told me it has 3.55 gears in the pumpkin, it did not make sense then that he had 3.73s in the trunk that he was going to install, Base for that year was 2.73 and option was 3.08. After noting the rpm at 60 mph I took the tire size and the tranny ratios and calculated. Sure enough it...

Re: Power Steering Fluid

...and that guy down the street with all the old cars that still ran after 100,000 smiles. Yeah, ha ha. Those were the days, eh? If a car passed 100,000 miles it was a noteworthy event. Now it is noteworthy if a car does not pass 100,000 and more. They even didn't have the odometer go past 99,000 b...

Re: Burnt clutch smell

Glad it all is okay with your clutch. Now hide your keys from your brother. With a brother like that, you don't need any enemies.

Power Steering Fluid

This pertains to the olden days of before Ford started specifying Mercon ATFs. I was told by an oil company chemist that it is perfectly okay to put Dextron/Mercon in my old Ford PS pump that specifies Type F ATF. I believe he is correct because a PS pump is fairly simple compared to an automatic tr...

Re: Jeep Make Rousey Housepet

Is dynomax the brand to get for cheap muffler replacement on a beater?? I might be asking for future knowledge :shock: 8) For beater you should get the $30 house brand muffler. Basic Dynomax Super Turbo will run you around $50-$60 (not the stainless version) and last 3+ years. Dynomax Super Turbo m...

Yeah, that car is a lot of fun to drive. I can't wait to get behind the wheel again. Clutch pedal is very firm. Got back in S10 and clutch pedal went down like it was a feather. :lol:

Re: Jeep Make Rousey Housepet

So now my lousy 10 year old muffler started to split at the right-side seam. https://cattree.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Cats-arched-back.jpg I replaced it on Saturday with a DynoMax Cat-Back It is probably just as loud as the splitting muffler, but it's a better kinda loud now. ...and of course,...

Ha ha, the S10 dropped 2 mpg when I got ahold of it with my lead foot! :lol:

Re: Post your speed in top gear at 3000 RPM

The 2001 S-10 2.2L I bought from ClutchDisk does not have a tachometer, but my calculator says I should be doing about 78 mph at 3000 rpm in top gear. My calculator says that ClutchDisks 2005 Focus 2.0 should be doing about 74 mph at 3000 rpm in top gear (5th). Again, no tachometer. ClutchDisk would...

Nope, mine was older, 2001. Just think, you can be fragged by your own car's safety device!
