To cold to even think about working on the car, but i did a little snooping around.  Turns out The intake manifold is a ford motorsport single plane race manifold.



 



Ill be replacing the wires, they all have burn spots from the headers. Also doing something about the routing. Those wires shouldnt be zipped together like that!

Personally I would get rid of the electric water pump unless you plan on racing the car. If it shorts out or just quits working then your stuck over heating. Id put a regular water pump on it and just leave the fan off it so it would still look clean under the hood since theres an electric fan for the radiator.

Jeff,

 :) :) :) That stop light brings back some good memories as I had one 35 or more years ago when I was in college. We always used it for a party light. It was in my dorm room on campus for my first 6 months of college. Everybody on campus knew that if the stoplight on 3rd floor was on there was a party going down. LOL... those parties were probably the reason why I was only welcome to live on campus for 6 months ;D ;D. The light lived with me at several college houses after that and was always a party favorite.

It was warm enough to fiddle in the polebarn for a bit. I replaced the burned plugwires and started redoing the wild world of wire under the hood. Still amile or two to go, but she seems to run good now.

Looks like a fancy Italian leather steering wheel  8)

Probably more at home in an Alfa Romeo Spyder than an American Pony car, but hey, should have a nice feel to it. 

Aftermarket steering wheels on modern cars isn't really a thing like it used to be. As well as the air bag, the wheel on my Toyota probably has more buttons and levers than your whole Mustang dash. Stereo, cellphone, cruise control and gearbox are all on the actual wheel. Not really practical to swap out.

I have a stop light that blew down during a hurricane years ago. It sits on a shelf in the shop all these years as I haven't thunk of anything to do with it yet. I hesitate putting it outside lit up in case someone gets snoopy and sees where it came from. Jeff's project has me thinking ofmaybe putting it in my sports room.

My light has led bulbs in it. Just wires hanging in it. The board could sequence any 3 light i would think. You have a hot and nuetral comeing into it and three places to hook power and nuetral for the red yellow and green. 

Wire strippers and a tiny screw driver and 5 minutes to hook it up. Longer to strip your wires. :)

Mine has normal screw in sockets I think. It isn't LED. Been 10+ years since I looked in it so can't remember.
