Gen 2 Coyote and Control Pack

Picked up my Coyote from the shipper. I give much gratitude to JEGS for an awesome price and prompt delivery. The deal also included the Ford Performance Control Pack.







The Control Pack: harness, pedal, upper and lower safety switches, 02 sensors, mass air, upper and lower radiator hose, and ECU module.







Take note of the charge motion control valve actuators at the back of the intake manifold on the Gen 2 Coyote. The large oil cooler most definitely isnít going to fit.

Suspension

Picked up the suspension components from the powder coat shop. I went with a 60% gloss black. In goes the 9Ē True Track third member with 31 spline axles. My Dad shaped custom brake lines. Third member painted with high temperature engine gloss black paint.

Seating

I purchased a pair of brand new 2003 Mach 1 Mustang seats about ten years ago. They have been peacefully resting in the basement waiting for this project! I’m sure there will be fitment hurdles, but I’m glad that I had the seat risers lowered. TMI is making matching leather upholstery for the back seat. I'm told it's their first order of this type for a 65-66 convertible.

Suspension assembly

Heidts Pro G Gen 2 up front and four-link in the rear. Adjustable coil overs all around.

Suspension is bolted back in so the structure is a roller. Everything is lubricated with white lithium grease. Nothing has been aligned. Added a rear sway bar, which barely clears the 9Ē Currie housing. I have a feeling that I will need to disassemble the front suspension again for paint, but I could work on a rolling chassis in the meantime.













Last, a belated selfie pic.

The Convertible subframe connectors are Heidts #RM-103. I concur about the ride height :-)

Hunting and Pulling Parts

I have a rolling shell, but I need to find some parts, a lot of rusty parts! I have access to a blasting cabinet, so I will be able to properly treat for rust, clean, and prime as I go. The search continues.



Cleaned a prepped windows wipers mechanism. Researching ways to test the motor before itís in the car with a harness.



Disassembled the convertible rear quarter panels. Blasted the medal panels.



Primed and as good as new.



Bead blasting.



More bead blasting.



Steering column bracket. Apparently they donít make repos?



Disassembled a couple of complete doors so I have an assortment of lock mechanisms, latches, latch rods, handles, vent window trim, and convertible window frames. Iím told coupe and convertible window frames are not interchangeable. Iíll be going with power windows, so I donít need the window cranks. Allocated rear window frames and hardware.






Allocated a 2nd pair of fenders. Not the best pair, but I now have options for fitment. Donít worry, this donor car is a T code coupe and both A and B pillars are heavily rusted. It has no options and 13Ē rims?



Pony door lights



A convertible top. Looks complete with the exception of one missing nut. I wonít know what Iím up against until disassembly, but itís going to need some attention.

Hunt, find, unbolt, clean, bead blast, sand, prime, and repeat.

New Parts

I went with a Ford style Ididit tilt column. 3/4 in 36 spline. Column diameter is 2.5Ē, so the stock dash bracket will work.





Etching Primer



Radiator arrived. I decided to go with the C & R Racing model 10-01003. Itís a single pass cross flow with a built in power steering cooler and dual 11Ē fans. It also has built in mounts to the radiator brace. No separate brackets required. The inlet (1.5Ē) is on passenger side and bottom outlet on driver side to match Coyote engine. Pricey, but I shouldnít have to worry about overheating.



Heidts transmission cross member for a T56.





My gas tank from Mustangs To Fear arrived. Itís a 22 Gallon unit with AN6 feed and return placed to clear the 4-link. Fitted with Aeromotive Stealth 340 pump. It has internal baffles and is all aluminum.



Detroit Speed trunk battery mount compatible with the Optima 34/78 series.



Scuffed and applied a healthy coat of primer to repro splash shields. Their factory E coat primer is thin.

Moving forward one part at a time.

Picked up a 68 Shelby style fiberglass hood, apron with spoiler, and carbon fiber snug fit front and rear bumpers from Maier Racing. Iím planning to go with the stock steel trunk lid and valance for now. No lower side scoops.

Love this build... can't wait to see how low the Coyote engine sits in the engine bay.

Nice build!

Here is how to test the 2sp wiper motor:

In the shop manual, the B and C terminals are the two terminals on the motor.

TESTING CONNECTIONS:
TO PARK:

B TERMINAL TO VOLTAGE SOURCE
C TERMINAL TO Blue AND Red
Yellow TO White
Black TO GROUND

TO OPERATE AT HIGH SPEED:

Yellow TO VOLTAGE SOURCE
Blue TO White
Black TO GROUND
B AND C TERMINALS AND Red NO CONNECTION

TO OPERATE AT LOW SPEED:

Red AND Yellow TO VOLTAGE SOURCE
Blue TO White
Black TO GROUND
B AND C TERMINALS NO CONNECTION

Hope this helps, this is how I test mine.

Greetings from Uruguay
