This has not been a good week. As I posted earlier axle seals have gone out in the TC. Blowed the motor up in the Cat yesterday. Running down the interstate here in Little Rock and looked in my review mirror and it looked like one of those stock car blows up. I have been having problem with my wife BroncoII, Well, I know where the coolant is going now! Heads cracked. Well, guess it's time to suck it up and go to work. I'll check in from time to time but unless I have time to check it out at work I probably will be off for a while.

PS. I hope the old f150 will start in the morning! With the way this week has gone and with 285,000 on the truck it wouldn't surprise me if it lays down too.

Sorry to hear that, man. Why not get a 5.0 HO from a wrecked Stang at the JY and drop it in the cat? Probably easier than a rebuild, and you will add 50HP.

I've found a 351W for the F150 a low mileage engine. So I'm thinking about dropping the 351 in the f150 and in turn dropping the 302 out the f150 into the cat. As far the TC (I guess I really should mention it since the is a board for TC's) I think I'm going to pull the axles put new axle seals in it for now see if that will stop the leak for a while. Since I have no noises coming from the rear end, if I can get the leak stopped it should be alright for a while.
