Getting to spend some quality time with my 17 yr old son. Started working on a 79 5.0 I've had since I was 16 with him. Ive been into cars but never pushed him to try to get him interested. He started showing interest so we are digging in and really enjoying the time together. Car has been off the road for more than 20 years. Its was the usual story, life gets busy, other cars come and go. The engine in the 79 was rebuilt in 1987, but I suspect crank snout where harmonic balancer pilots was not to spec and allowed balancer to wobble and broke the bolt in the end of the crank a couple of times through the years. Have a replacement crank at the ready so getting the engine ready to pull. The starter on the 79 5.0 is not an easy drop like the vintage stangs. We plan on pulling the engine and trans as a unit. Anybody ever leave the starter on when pulling engine and trans together?
