even if you weren't' t doing to use this conversion this mod would give you lot more radiator cooling just use a 85' JEEP Grand Waggoner radiator because of where hoses are
With this conversion you gas tank must have return line plus gas lines need to be ran down passenger side of car. Here are three different ways to complete this project. Picture one would go into fill hose in trunk about $35.00 Picture two and three in bottom of tank $1.50 .
From bottom of tank I hooked up my pump. This way pump doesn't have to pull the fuel up hill. I then used the tank sending unit pick up as my return line. I ran 3/8" line for pressure and 5/16" as return.
Picture four is not from my car . You'll need to remove sending unit drill hole for retune line Braze or Silver solder $2.00 gas line parts store.
This pump has right connectors for to use Ford Fuel filter you could use snap and click lines here . You can spend upwards to $400.00 for a pump this one pictured is around $110.00 new. Pick and pull $30.00 to $45.00
[foot note] while installing fuel pump and lines , I happen to look up at my rubber brake hose going from rear end to hard-line it was ready to brake had bubble on side of hose. Number listed above!!! check your please.
Above are different kits along with battery
box I found on internet . I'm moving mine to trunk. You can buy
a kit from several vendor . Cost runs between $50.00 to $95.00 or you can
buy a battery box from $8.00 tie down kit from $6.00 and if your lucky like me battery
cables were donated to me . I ran two cables inside of car up to engine because of unibody
you will have better ground. When you run cables through sheet metal use rubber
grommets get them at hardware store about 45 cents apiece. In the picture the view is a left mount for a 65 V8 . Height can also be adjusted with the use
of washer's between bottom of mtg , and frame bracket. The ones I'm using are for 65 Mustang V8 part
number for right is Anchor 2221 left is 2220 got these at AutoZone. Picture below is the 65 mustang mount with the adaptor from
the V8 Falcon installed. Picture on right is the frame mounts. (note)
Timing cover will have to be drilled out for oil dip stick
tube also the alternator bracket .
I used a 77 mustang front timing case cover.

(note)or you could just install a Lokar flex oil dip stick tube, part number is ED-5004 this is used on driver side on engine. You will need this mod to work with 3G 130 AMP Alternator conversion.
Do not use a Lokar ED-5010 this is for early use on front case cover with dip stick.
TAG OFF COMPUTER
If you are using AOD transmission check the dip stick , for what type of fluid to use there are two different types you can not mix these. (Dextron III / Mercon ) or ( Mercon 5 )
1.Air Pump and all related items (ie) brackets hoses , and tubes
2. ERG Valve
3. Idle Air Control Unit
save these items might need them if you move or for the next guy
(note) If Air Condition bracket that will fit for this application is 87 Mercury Cougar with 5.0 , Looks like 89 Lincoln Continental will work also . Others might also work !
I started this conversion in June 2005 the hottest time of the year in Florida there was no day below 94 degree average day heat index 100 to 106 . Some days work maybe two hours other days 8 or more hours. It is now August 8 almost done . Jim
August 11 Drove the Car No Problems
[foot note] September 10 one month no problems gas mileages is between 23 to 26 mph. this is why I did the conversion.
January 3 2006Just got done installing 3G 130 amp Alternator . I also install AC compressor, I did have power steering relocation kit install . To use the AC compressor had to go with factory bracket. Which I picked up a the local pick and pull yard. Brackets and AC pump from a 90 Cougar. Alternator 91 Mustang. The mounting bracket needs to have area ground off for alternator to work. (see 3G conversion else where on this site for pictures )The belt I ended up using was 755K6. I am running under drive pulley's. Your belt will be longer .
Foot Note this is now 2013 still no problem with the conversion replaced battery and a Mass Air Flow Sensor that's it after 7 years.
