Montego Upgrades!

Well I had yesterday off and my brother in law was in town for the day so him and I tackled the upgrades I got for the Montego yesterday.

Here's the write up from last week about the parts I ordered (and a recap of the car itself):


So I put on everything but the spark plug wires, those are for the future whenever I upgrade the ignition. So that means I put in new Thermostat, Water Pump, Radiator Hoses, Heater Bypass Hose, Alternator Belt, Power Steering Belt and Valve Covers.

Here's a timeline of the engine bay from when I bought it to now in it's various states.


I'm so happy with the Valve Covers, I think they look fantastic and I've been wanting them since I first bought the car. I'd like to get the matching air cleaner eventually, but for now the Edelbrock one (which was a gift - FREEBIE) will do just fine. Can't really see it in the pictures, but the new Spark Plug Wire Holders are the Ford Racing ones as well.

(Edit: needed a better looking lead image! Used another from the final product)
