    I’m so happy that the kid was able to get a great deal on the Mustang and I think it’s really cool seeing you help him out with fixing some of its issues and teaching him some things along the way.It may not seem like a big deal to some people,but they don’t realize that just by you taking a little bit of your time to help someone else out is sometimes enough to help push that person in a direction that they might have never thought they would be able to do before and I think the world could definitely use more people like yourself.

    As a Ford mechanic when these were new, I always replaced the stator in the distributor along with the tfi module. One went bad the other is soon to follow. Easy job, just mark the rotor, pull the distributor, knock out the gear pin, pull the gear off, replace the stator, repeat, and good to go for another 50,000 miles. Trust me, you want to replace stator.

    The sound of that Mustang brings back so many memories. When I was a senior in high school, my brother had a black 88 GT. He traveled a lot for work and the deal was, if I had to get up at 4am and take him to the airport, I got the car for the day.

    I'm loving this series! I have an 88 GT that I built in high school (25 years ago). I went through this same fuel system replacement scenario a few years ago. Parts are cheap and easy to find.
    One of the most impressive things, that you found tires for it! I'm in the middle of a 5 lug conversion because the 15" turbine wheels are nearly impossible to find performance tires for. I'm going to have 2003 brakes, 2003 cobra 17"s with 245/45r17s in the front and 275/40r17s in the back. I just got the wheels back from powder coat. They are 17x9 front and 17x10.5 rear.

    Good job guys. Next i would remove the rubber on the shifter stick and replace with washers. Then get a brass shifter ball cup. That would improve the feel of your shifts. Replace the steering shaft with a borges unit that gets rid of the rag joint, upgrade the clutch quadrant with a 2 position aluminum quadrant, adjustable clutch cable and sub-frame connectors. That would be a good start to improving the feel of the car. 💪

    I have a GM with a larger fuel pressure Schrader valve. Is the core the same size/dimensions as the Ford's, and in a pinch, can a tire valve core be used in place of the Ford/GM cores?

    Brings back memories and feels. My first car was basically this one without the t-tops. I was so proud I got it to run 13.9 with a minimal amount of bolt ons. They may be slow by today's standards, but they were a lot of fun. They would chirp into 3rd gear. Lots of torque that pulls those gs nicely

    Regardless of if you keep the cheap TFI or go Motorcraft, make sure to put some heat transfer paste under the aluminum plate to keep the TFI cool. Thats what the little round, dried out stains were, under the failed unit.

    A tip for the TFI module- put some thermal compound on the back of it between the module and distributor. That'll prolong it by keeping the heat out of it. GMs with HEI ignition with the module in the bottom has the same issue

    $200 fuel tank is awesome, I look fwd to Sundays every week for another Alex adventure! Peter has turned into the ultimate sidekick, seems like such a cool guy to be around. I run a contracting business (concrete treatments and waterproofing), I also have a car buying company. Long story short I was at the doctor the other day and she was explaining to me that she had car issues, her engine was kaput! Skoda Superb Wagon 1.8tsi (like a long wheel base VW passat) she had bought it new. Mechanic told her the motor had skipped timing and essentially blown up, $10,000 for a new engine. Skoda sat at the mechanic with no plan, 1 owner 160,000km car. Owner asked me if I wanted it, I said why not, paid her and got it towed to my warehouse. I was planning on stripping it for parts. One of my waterproofing applicators is a mechanic from a former life and took a look under the bonnet, timing cover was still on etc, only thing missing were the oily plugs. Engine oil was also over filled by 4 litres (fouling the plugs)....you can guess what happened next. New plugs, drained some of the oil and it started right up. Thing drives beautifully. Sometimes you can't see the forrest for the trees!

    As a Fox body guru myself, I was almost certain that damn TFI was going to be in this video. Not really surprising considering there was a class action lawsuit against Ford for TFI failures (Thick Film Ignition). This is why Ford mounted them on the shock towers of later distributor equipped cars before the switch to DIS. Also note, the MSD distributor does not fix this problem. I ended up remote mounting my TFI Module with heat sink from a desk top computer. Never had an issue again.

    From what I remember reading about it, they were rated at 225hp up till 92 and then in 93 it was lowered to 215 because the SN95 was going to have the same engine but weighed more so they were trying to make it out like the newer car had more power because with the added weight they knew it was going to be slower but didn’t want to say that to hurt sales.

      I own a 94 SN95 with the Windsor in it, and this is accurate it feels a lot slower and heavier but I like it better. All the stiffening they did to the chassis makes the car feel a lot more planted than even the 93 I used to own and I love how it handles in comparison.

    Great video! I love the question about the single generation. Doesn't G wagon have the longest single generation production run? W460, W461, and W463 all were pretty much the same platform and does that qualify as single generation? Even Fox body mustang had several updates in the production life cycle. So in that sense could we say G wagon built on the same platform from 1979 - 2018 is the longest single generation production? I think R107 (1971 -1989) is also worth discussion since it used same chassis code for all 19 years of production. You know Mercedes so please weigh in and educate us!

    Hey Alex and Peter, great channel, great videos keep up the good work. GM's W-body was a very long running platform, from 87-2016 that's 30 years. Great platform, built alot of cars off it, monte carlo, grand prix, impala, regal etc. Almost like the fox body with the mustang, montego, thunderbird, mark vii etc. Yes it had updates along the way, but the chassis is more or less the same for 30 years, only major thing was the addition of an aluminum front subframe in like 06 or around there. Keep wrenchin'!!

    Just found the channel and subscribed. I re wired the tfi module on my 89 and mounted it next to the airbox because they don't like heat lol. Never had a problem since. I love the content and look forward to more.

    Love your videos!!! Like 2 years ago I replaced everything to my Mustang GT you are doing to your Mustang. My Mustang was the same exact interior and color as yours. Mine is a 1987 GT, all original all stock Automatic Transmission, 165,000 original miles. I'm the 2nd owner, I bought it in 1996. I replaced everything!!! I also got metal door handles...lol...Runs and drives perfect! Can be driven every day but I drive it on nice days only or a Saturday to work....right now its primed black and ready for paint and some new interior pieces, other than that the car needs nothing else. After Its painted and completely done I might sell it or garage keep it for some time. Thanks again for your videos!

    Driving down the road, the rear seal of the transmission on the dodge van in front of us blew out, we had tranny oil all over our windshield so we both ended up pulling over at the same spot in the road. It just so happens that the van in front of us was going to the same city we were and it was full of girls. So 2 guys my car and 4 girls in van, you can't leave them stranded. It was the middle of the night and well before everyone having a cell phone. And the only tools we had was a vise grip and flat head screwdriver, that was in teh back of their van, we had forgotten to put our toolbox into the car before we left so we were tool less. So I crawled up under the van, saw where the seal had blown out a little, used the screwdriver and vise grip as a hammer to tap the seal back in. We then ran up the road to the next exit, bought a case of tranny oil at the gas station which lucky for us was still open, then came back to the van. Topped off the tranny with oil. The seal leaked but was holding. So we let them know we would follow them, stay a little slower than norm, and if we flash our brights at you, pull over. So every 40 minutes we would have enough tranny oil on the front of our car and we would have them pull over, I would go back under tap the seal back, as it was slowly coming back out, refill with Tranny fluid, and then be back on our way. It took a long time to get home, but we got home they parked their van, one of the girls dads was a mechanic. We exchanged phone numbers, and we have been friends for the last couple of decades, brought together by a blown out rear seal from a weekend road trip to Vegas. Apparently we did something right, the dad said there was no damage to the tranny beyond replacing the seal. Never under estimate the power of hacking something together to get a vehicle home.

    Love this cars, at one point I carried an entire distributor with me, just to diagnose a bad stator, so I also suggest that you replace that, their are awesome cars, reliable and nearly indestructible.

    Definitely put a timing light on there. With 93 octane you should be able to bump base timing up to 12 maybe 14 degrees. It does make a difference. Will be more responsive and have a few more hp.

      @Edward Stanley still not where it could or should be. The current price drop is to try to gain popularity back.

    To reduce the chance of a spark igniting the fumes from the tank, use a brass punch to loosen the locking tab. Glad everyone is safe and awesome vid AGAIN. You are gonna gain a lot of viewers if you continue foxbody content. Every day I check for the newest one from yoi guys.

      No oxygen in the tank. Very low chance of it igniting
