ok guys, so theres been a 1992 mustang lx 5.0 sitting at a loan office next to where i live for quite a few months now and ive been thinking about trying to get it cheap. So i went to test drive it today and come to find out some one messed up the trans
in it a few weeks prior. So we went out and started it, atleast after 10mins of trying to jump start it. Then we put a new battery in it, but it still turned over pretty slow. The car its self is a real mess. Its a convertable, has quite a few rust spots, engine bay is very messy and interior is a mess. Kinda seems like a billy joes garage build. But.... Heres the kicker. They have a spec sheet on the car. Whether or not its completley true i do not know beings it is mostly all internal work. but here is what there sheet said word for word.
0.030 over 306ci
speed pro 10.25 compression molly coated pistons
ford racing E303 cam
engine has all new internals
Tremec world class TKO TS 5spd transmission
fully adjustable clutch quadrant
Ram Kevlar clutch, Billet flywheel
ford racing 3.73 rear gear
MSD 6AL ignition
DYNO 450+ Horsepower at rear wheels
less than 10,000 miles on the engine, transmission, rear end
mare than $7,000 invested in engine and transmission
Now i would imagine that they got all of this information from the previous owner of the car. ( The one that repossesed the car from ). So hard tellin if these things have really been done, or if the guy was trying to make the car seem like it was worth alot so that it would not sell.
The car deffinantly has a nice lope to it when at idle but as far as the 10.25:1 compression. Idk. I feel like i would notice a the difference between the 10.25:1 v.s. a stock 302 compression
As far as the trans
. The clutch is very hard to push in, and it doesnt feel like it hits that soft point, just constantly hard. The trans
makes no noise when you push the clutch down but as soon as you release in in any gear or even neutral it grinds and makes all kinds of noise ( Possibly bad input shaft bearing? ) So i am looking for any advice you guys have out there. Is it worth the few hundred dollar gamble to find out if its got all this or no....
