Black Explorer... yes, it was a state trooper with the ghost print that says, “STATE TROOPER”.
Commuting in the Daddywagon lately. Just because.
Almost looks harmless in that shot.
The Daddywagon is getting a new gearbox! Tremec T56!
Schweet! That's going to be fun.
That's a direct bolt-in, isn't it? That will make for some very fast driving. I'd recommend an 8-point roll cage, racing seats and 5-point harnesses....
Nice. Is that an aftermarket trans or is it out of a Cobra? I'm curious how it fits for you. I'm planning the same for my wagon once I'm done with all the suspension, steering, and brake upgrades. What bellhousing is on it?
The bellhousing appears to be the Windsor type.
I guess I'm more curious about the actual manufacturer of the bellhousing. Aluminum SBF bellhousings for the T56 are relatively rare. The common aftermarket solution is a Quick Time welded steel bellhousing that costs $700-$800.
Yes. It is the rare Ford aftermarket T56 transmission. These transmissions were never sold in a car. The other option is Quicktime bellhousing to adapt a Cobra T56 to the windsor engine. The clutch fork position will differ slightly between the two transmissions.
I have seen that Bowler Transmissions offers an aluminum bellhousing if you buy the Magnum through them. I don't know why there aren't more options for a bellhousing for a SBF for this thing.
I think I am going to go with a hydraulic clutch setup on mine. I already have the 87/88 Turbo Coupe clutch and brake pedals.
