Yep.  That is not where I was.  That is what I found when I got home.

Even though nobody asked, I'm going to keep rambling in the thread until the job is done.  Sort of a logbook.  Don't mind me...
 
Staying up late, doing my homework, I can save a gazillion bucks if I grab a 5 speed Tremec out of a 96 - 98 Mustang.  99+ won't work.  Neither will the Tremecs that were in GM cars.  Now to find one of those puppies.....

No thanks to you. I have my friend Harvey the Pooka to talk to and give me guidance..


 
FWIW, after removing the shroud, removing the radiator, after removing the fan, after removing the A/C compressor, and removing a thousand tidbit bolts to get at this stuff, it was the............
 
 
 
THE THERMOSTAT GASKET! 
Cheap chinese crap wasn't punched correctly so it "puckered up" when torqued down. 
PLUS!!! I t practically dissolved.
 
That's it!  I'm making my own from now on.

I use FelPro man. . .It's never happened.  Are you using Orange Juice for coolant?
 
Glad it was something simple though.  I wouldn't want to go 2 for 2 on motors

Flatten both surfaces like I mentioned, this is actually easier than the water pump housing.

That's where I drag it over to Lance's house, pull the plate, and walk away never looking back.

Jeep setup, left;  New Yorker setup, right.
Looks very doable. Just swap the entire Jeep pedal assy (and the bracket extension above the clutch pedal) over to the New Yorker bracket.

You have me dead to right.  I have to come clean...
I have phone phobia.  I piss off a lot of people  but It's not something I haven't tried to address.   I don't know what why, but it's like people who have a fear of flying or enclosed spaces.  You can't explain it.  You just  live with it and people don't understand it.  I console myself with the fact that if that's my worst neurosis, then I'm not that bad off...
So. I'm asking for forgiveness.
