That would probably be what I'd do as well. Sucks to have such a good deal, but something that expensive, I dont think I want to take any chances

I think you've come to a wise choice. I remember that picture Bill had of the intake manifold with all the precious little pieces of metal, and that alone would be enough to make the decision for me. I'm not saying don't ever buy a used one, but in this case surely it was wise to pass.

I'm joining in on the don't crowd too. There is just too many things that can go south in a hurry when your block becomes a sieve. Don't know how telling it is that on his new motor he isn't putting the blower back on. As expensive it is get it new if you can, I'd really hesitate on used and even more so if the engine went boom, then he/she sells it.

No my love of southern food hasn't gotten me to eat grits yet, I know, I know. One day but not yet. 'course it could be because I've only had them out in CA and haven't tasted what 'real' grits taste like. I'll look for the tomorrow.

Yes, last thing you/we need is another story of hardship with an install. That deal is only tempting because of the cost, but for a few more bills you can get a V3 version brand spanking new with a full warranty. When things go south you've got some protection especially when your install is coupled with a trusted installer. People will say all kinds of stuff that items are in great condition but remember you’re at a disadvantage. If the item was in your hands that you could get it inspected well that's a different situation. Error on the side of caution in this situation IMO.

Don't let a someone from the South hear that comment about instant grits. Hey grits is just like polenta you probably had it and didn't even know it. El Torito has a form of a swett grits as a garnish on some of their Mexi dinners. Looks like a corn cake .

Sorry guys, really busy at work yesterday and today, so admittedly I haven't read the last few pages.

Bill, got your PM and responded in the thread.

Is there a MF'ing Leo update yet?

Gotta remember Dad was raised in the South(AL and TN) and my grandparents, well obviously, were too. A southern twang comes quite natural for us. In fact it took me awhile to realise that either one had any kind of accent.

Duly noted. There is a cracker barrel out here across the way and if they didn't provide the breakfast I'd really love to go there. I love Cracker Barrel. God it's making me hungry already.

I have just (teeny-tiny) amount of cred to pull it off. May not have been born here but the south is in my blood. By the grace of god, naturally.

Hey guys, it's been some time. Hope you've all been doing well. I was wondering if any of the SoCal guys have some maintenance work that they need to do on their Mustangs because I know I do and I'd like to have someone who might be more familiar with the S197 workings than I am there with me.

Here's my to-do list:

Perform multi-point inspection.

Inspect and lubricate all non-sealed steering linkage,ball joints,suspension joints,half and drive-shafts and u-joints.

Inspect brake pads/shoes/rotors/drums, brake lines and hoses, and parking brake system.

Inspect complete exhaust system and heat shields.

Inspect engine cooling system and hoses.

Change engine oil and replace oil filter. (Up to 5 quarts of oil. Perform at specified mileage interval or every 6 months, whichever occurs first).

Rotate and inspect tires; check wheel end play and turning noise.

Replace fuel filter.

Replace cabin air filter.

Replace engine air filter.

Anyone got anything on the list as well that they'd like to give me a hand with?

Just got off the phone with Leo. I'll have him update here with some promising news.

I think that sounds good Danny. I'm sure Leo, Brian, and maybe a couple others are creeping up on some scheduled maintenance items.

Leo mentioned about changing out his fuel filter, so it may be a good time to do both cars at once.
