Praying it comes back on soon so I don't have to keep buying gas for the generator.
Man, sorry to hear that is still going on. Hope momma and baby are handling it okay.

We are out at my parents place. Their power never went out. Just heard a little bit ago the closest town just got their power back on(well some of it) Sonia hoping when I go back out there in the morning to fill the generator up it will be on.

Gotta go flip the breaker back on to find out for sure though. I picked a helluva week to take off lol.

Good! Glad you & the fam had somewhere to go until power is back. Just thinking of trying to sleep in this heat is torture.

Welp it's official that flywheel is junk, spent 10 minutes today trying to start it with no luck. Had to push it out of the garage and down through the yard and pop the clutch to start it. :/

Sorry to hear that dude. Hope you can find the funds and time to get a new one installed. Also hope you can use one of the starters you have on site.

Re: Swapping out the AOD

Can you just put a new starter ring on the flywheel?

It is the toothed ring on the flywheel that your starter gear meshes with to start the engine.

Transmission at least.
You might be able to get the old one off and the new one on with the flywheel still on the engine.
IF it is a replaceable ring, tap and pry the old one off, then using some gloves, heat the new one a bit and it should pop right one there. Do not get it red hot as that will take the tempering out of the metal and ruin the ring.

Hmmm.... I think if I have to drop the trans I'll just take everything back off and put a new flywheel on it anyway, new one is only 65 through Jegs. Should have got a new one anyway but I guess you live and learn heh.

Alright been thinking about some little things to do to my car. Anyone happen to know if carpet from a 94-04 mustang fits in a foxbody? I've got black carpet and I've been slowly trying to get the interior changed over from porno red to black.

Right now it's got an all black dash, center console, seat belts and 01 gt grey ish black front seats.

The dash and console were painted by the previous owner but he did a helluva job on it. Can't tell it was red unless you pop out the vents.

Also been telling myself I should just go ahead and tear it back apart since it shouldn't take nearly as long as the first time. Just kinda dreading doing it again lol.

I did notice that when using the aod driveshaft that it doesn't look like it slides in nearly as far as the manual driveshaft. Thinking I may swap that out as well.

why would you need carpet from an sn95?

you can pick up new carpet for about 130$ give or take. but it does make a world of difference.

I bought a complete wrecked 95 gt about 2 years ago and it had an all black interior from an 01 mustang including dash in it do I takes it all out. Tried selling it but everyone just wanted the front seats so I was just trying to use what I could and try to just sell off the rest.

Ok so today I got a wild hair and decided to jack the car up and check out the starter. Loosened both bolts and grabbed a hammer to use as a pry bar. Pull the starter towards the engine a little bit and tightened the bolts.

Got out let it down and hit the key and it fired up. Don't remember if the starter was loud or not do to the fact I was amazed it even cranked over. Part of me is thinking maybe I caught a good spot on the flywheel when I shut it off last but the other part of me is thinking maybe the starter is somehow moving just enough to barely make contact with the flywheel

Crawl under and look at your flywheel. You can take the starter and have it tested also check your grounds. Re sand them to fresh metals

Flywheel looks ok, no missing teeth or bent over. Both starters are good, by cranking over I mean it's like it hits the flywheel then just grinds like it isn't making full contact or something.

Already has a shim, tried with the shim on aftermarket replacement starter and without, also with the shim and oem starter and without, still does the same. I'm thinking maybe the flywheel is just worn down too much.

Possibly yes... Measure the teeth length somehow then google how long they should be.

It made the same noise in my 87 but never failed to start it so i don't know what the deal is. Only thing I didn't reuse was the bellhousing. I used the one that was bolted to the 5 spd I bought.

Only difference was the bottom starter bolt was stripped out and requires a bolt and nut. When I tear it back down I'm going to swap in my bellhousing.

And you'd think the 5spd bell housing would be the right one too.
