Introducing ... the Fairmont Engine!

Remanufactured 5.0 V8 from a 1995 F-150, has 1997 heads.  Ran absolutely perfect in the truck it came out of.  Collected the parts I wanted... foxbody oil pan, oil pump, pickup tube, explorer upper and lower intake, all new gaskets, foxbody fuel rail and injectors, explorer throttle body with mustang linkages etc, a/c delete pully, foxbody mustang wiring harness, trickflow stage one cam, fox mustang convertible motor mounts, and mustang style distributor.   Starting to disassemble and reassemble with the new parts.  The inside of this engine looks like brand new.  Degreased, painted engine, all accessories, brackets, etc...   The last big purchase will be the headers.  Other than that its pretty much complete.
