    Stock one on the 87-88 5.0 cars is in that location.

    On 86 cars the test port is by the FPR. About a decade ago when I did the HO swap I used a fuel rail out of an 86 5.0 Cougar, because it looked better than the one on my car. Since then I have had 2 fuel pressure test ports.

    got the tank to engine bay fuel lines rounted.
    This is a 3.8L original design so i will be pfte or whatever plastic line all the way up to the engine bay.

    the 3.8L design gives you a lot of extra fuel line.
    I am considering relocating the fuel filter up in the engine bay , it makes better sense there anyway.
    I just have to find a spot for it.

    i have no idea,, we discovered a batch of kittens in the woodshed and the mom saw us discover them.
    she moved them and a week later i found 2 dead kittens in the gravel along the footer of our house in the fall and a live one. one seemed to move a tad, then all of a sudden it stopped moving. I felt like a gentle giant with this little life in my had and tried to move my finger in and out on its heart to start it up again. I even made my hand in to a small funnel shape and placed it on his open mouth to gently blow in air, he's gone.

    heard tiny thing noises from the other corner of the house where a drain line was and some scrap lumber i had lying along it.

    there we found another one alive, he was eating dirt. mom nowhere to be found. its like 39deg outside.

    this one was so young he wasn't able to poo on his own yet, we learned thats why moms lick the kitten belly from thier kneck on down to thier tail. it forces the poo to move along and expel. Brit learned how to "poo" a kitten then we trained him to bottle feed. i think back on it and figure this one was on his way out , maybe he had that day but night fall would have taken him.

    he remembers the cold, we think his body was near death at the time we found him. I have a theory that his body faught off cold so hard that it exhausted something inside him, something that used up so much of his body that to this day that ablity has decayed, and that makes it difficult to stay warm on his own. he gets very cold easily.

    as a kitten he slept on my neck, as he grew i would wake up having a hard time getting air myself. now his almost full grown i guess, i suspet he has another year of growing to do. we named him rocky.

    so... over time i have lost all my dogs, and i figured this cat would make a good garage cat. I have trained him to act like a dog, i have two cats acting like dogs now. I whistle and and he comes running. I take a bath and he's right there. He can run up my leg and perch on my shoulders and just chill. he chased sticks i throw and every so often he will bring them back. he pretty much follows me around the yard all the time.

    stupid cat!!!

    Looks like you're having fun with those fuel rails. On the HO intake installed on my TC I used the one from my wrecked Sport Coupe. I'm changing over to a BBK fuel rail with a Kirban adjustable regulator on the 97 Mountaineer intake I plan to install. Supply is 1/2in, return is 3/8in. I think.

    I'm going to order that fuel level transmitter from Summit and solve my fuel quantity issue. Ticks me off every time I look at the gauge. Any advice?

    Nice looking cat. I have a feral kitten from a animal rescue lady down in San Diego. Spent his first 6 years traveling with me, living in my trailer on jobsites. He has the same cold problem your cat has. He's named Smokie, black and can't stand the cold. Lucky for him we live in Nevada, only cold for a couple of months. Normally sleeps under covers during the day in his Temperpedic cat bed. He's an indoor cat, only goes outside in the yard under supervision. Follows me everywhere, does not like the wife.

    tommy,
    YES,
    see this link, solves the fuel sending unit problems.
    keep in mind there is another summit option for full digital clusters , this one is for analog clusters though.

    Fuel filter relocation mod.

    took fuel filter mounting braket from the rear passanger side and moved that whole object up to the engine bay.

    The purpose is to make it convienent while doing other PM work on the car, the filter is right there easy peasy to get to.
    Not saying its hard to get to now, it just has always kinda urked me you gotta crawl on the ground to do that to!.


    I thought long and hard about using other cars i know of who also put fuel filters up in the engine bay.
    seems there were a few rules...........
    -none were attached to the interior forward of the strut tower
    -none were attached to a radiator core support
    -some were connected aft of the strut towers
    -most are directly bolted to the engine
    -all were kept a good distance from exhaust heat
    -none i know of were positioned "lower" than the exhast like i have done.

    this mod should be safe and keep heat off the filter.

    we have no smog pump going in so i used that area to mount the filter mounting part.

    Looks like it should work. Got your link bookmarked. I replaced my TC cluster with AutoMeter gauges. Fuel quantity is for a Ford.
    Do you now what size gas tan came on the Turbo Coupe?
