Scotty, what would he need to remove to access his rear main seal? Being that he has 150k+ miles, wouldn't this be a good time to change it?

I looked back at the pics and it looks dry. Still though, if it can be replaced without removing the new pilot bearing you just put in, maybe it's worth it to replace the rear main now..?

Looks like you only need to have the flywheel and shield off to do the rear main seal. Checkout the video here starting around 16:05. It's a newer Mustang, but I'm sure the rear main replacement is pretty much the same. I'd do it if it was me lol.

At this point i only see the car getting another 10k maybe with the current engine in the car so i am not too worried about the RMS. I just don't have one right now and i need to get this thing back on the road. I'm running out of time.

I just got the clutch on also.

Gotta put together the exhaust, torque arm, starter, torque the driveshaft.... Installing new clutch cable, quadrant, and firewall adjuster currently. Probably on the road tomorrow. I also haven't put in all the bell housing bolts, those top 2 will take a while.

Well something broke. Pushed the pedal in a few times and heard a snap, now the clutch fork is wobbling around inside and the TOB isn't really moving.

I am so ****ing done with this car. I am seriously considering selling this thing.

Kinda sounds like a problem with the clutch fork pivot ball. Maybe it came off the pivot ball.

Broken AC
Battery drain issue
Rear suspension clunk
Engine about to go
Broken trans now

This thing is breaking faster than I can fix it.

This is coming from someone who sold their car because it broke... don't do it, I still regret selling my old GT even though my current car is faster and cleaner. Just wait a day or two to cool off and then hop back on it.

I don't have the time nor patience anymore to fix it. Mostly time. Already took way too much time off work for this. It's probably just the fork popped off the pivot stud. But I can guarantee to you that I am not pulling that trans again. I'll have it towed to a shop tomorrow and then sit my *** down at work and make back some of the $. I also have to drive back to school on Monday.

May as well sell my cobra side skirts, had them for 2 years now and don't see them going on any time soon.

You can get the fork back on the ball just by grabbing the fork end from the outside and pushing it back on. No need to drop trans again. Unless the tob and fork is installed wrong...

Give it a day or two and see how you feel. I know it's easy to get frustrated.

Yeah I noticed you could push and pull on it a bit since there is that clip. But I pushed on it, and it won't go on any more.

If its on all the way then I dunno. Could be bound up on the TOB. Did you put it in or your friend? My father installed it wrong on the spring clip thingers on the fork and I'm glad I caught it...


TBTH, take the 2 or 3 hours to drop it, fix it and put it back up. Lots of 4 letter words, take some preworkout beforehand to rage the whole time and blow off all the steam I dunno... Not worth paying some shop $1k to do it plus towing it there plus whatever they decide to try to sell you when its an afternoon's labor yourself with a friend.

Neither of us have the time to do it anymore. There's a guy that my dad used for trans stuff before and he quoted $800 for parts and labor for a clutch job a while back. Being that like 80% of the work is done I don't think it'll be too much, and I still have the stock fork, stock pivot stud, another TOB also. So I definitely don't need to buy any parts. I just really don't have the time do deal with this anymore.

At this point I probably have lost more money taking off these days of work to do the project than if I would have just paid for it to be done in the first place.

I just want some peace of mind.

Wish you were closer... kind of as far away as you can get lol. One of the few ppl I have "met" online I'd feel comfortable vouching for to get onto base hobby shop.


Also I have a line on 2 cheap Teksids I can probably make free near me

You'll feel so good about it all if you drop the tranny down and fix it yourself. You will defeat the pain in the *** part your feeling now. I really think you can do it in less time than you think. After you work or something. Paying an arm and a leg to finish it is going to make you feel worse about the whole thing.

I agree.
But I also understand Andrew's frustration.

Take the weekend to think about it. It's doubtful that a shop would be able to get started on it until next week anyway.

I go back to school on Monday and there is a bunch of other stuff i planned to do this week that i already put off way too long. And i have the truck that i can take back again so i won't be without a car if it does take that long. That's why i waited until spring break, because the car was at home and i was at school, so i had this entire week off. But now nearing the end of it i just don't have the time or help to do it anymore. I have no other options.

I would love to finish it myself, but i just don't see that happening because basically as of right now i would be doing it by myself, which is nearly impossible.

Once its done at the shop my dad would be able to go pick it up and drive it back home. Then i can take a weekend to drive home and swap vehicles.

I only really install my own stuff because i want to save money... But in this case it seems that i have lost more money from taking off work than if i would have just paid to have it done in the first place.

Either way, the clutch, flywheel, and pilot bearing is all done. So it would just be pulling the trans off and looking at the fork. But like i said before, i just don't have the time to do it.

Once i have my own house in the future, and more time, and a lot better tools i would love to be able to do stuff like this and actually build the car. I'm just a 21 year old going back and forth between college and home trying to squeeze in working on it when i can, not really the best situation. I've got my whole life ahead of me to do stuff like this... Just terrible timing.

Yeah, it will suck money wise, but I'd just give it to your buddy to look at/fix.

Go enjoy yourself dude, you're 21, like you said. I didn't start working on cars until I was 25ish, when I had a house and a bunch of tools. When my car was broke when I was I just took it to a shop, too much other stressors going on/not enough time to worry about fixing it myself.

Either way, you'll have peace of mind once it's all fixed. Of course, as long as everything else stays intact.

When I move back to my old house 45 min from work I will need a dd as well. Mustang is not going to be everyday and truck gets 14mpg. Father in law can get me a beater Honda in real good shape for about $2k. Might look for another Del Sol. Damn thing got 400 miles out of a 10 gallon tank and handled great. Most fun I ever had in a 90hp car lol.

I'm honestly considering a Smart car. Cheap, good gas mileage, and can fit ANYWHERE. Can lease one for like $100/mo

I have considered a Fiat. However, they are just a lot more expensive. Trying to stay pretty cheap.

I've honestly really considered selling this one and buying a 2011/12 5.0.

I could return the car back to stock and have so many extra parts to sell, such as:

Raxiom tail lights
Tinted tail lights
Corbeau FX1 seats
Corbeau 5 point harnesses
Corbeau Harness Bar
Tinted Headlights
Headlight covers
Bullitt wheels on the car
Brand new AMRs that just came
03/04 Cobra side skirts
03/04 Cobra mirrors
MGW shifter
Mac Offroad H pipe
Front & Rear coilovers.

Those are all parts that i could pull out and swap with the stock parts that i still have. I've kept all other stock parts except the driveshaft, stock grille, and the upper control arms (so i'd have to keep the PHB and TA in the car unless i can get stock UCAs)

If you have the means to do it go for it I love the 11-12's body style and the Coyote motor is a huge plus.

Yea that's the bad part but you can probably get a pretty good deal on a 11-12. I'll have my 12 paid off in just a couple months I can't wait!
