Subject: Mid-America Mustang Meet

I was wondering if anyone is going to the Mid-America Mustang Meet in
Tulsa this coming weekend. I will be there, with or without my
Fastback. Depends if I get it going in time. If you going to be there
let me know and we could meet up sometime there. I will be going to the
drags on Saturday and the Show on Sunday.

As I previously wrote:

It goes to a very save air:fuel ratio and pulls a ton of timing to prevent damage
to the motor, it needs to be looked at ASAP, if the truck's under warranty I'd
take it back and tell them it was my only vehicle and I needed it back right
away. If they give you a hassle then explain the reason you bought a new vehicle
was reliability and all that stuff, do whatever you can it should be fixed in
a timely manner if its warranty work especially.

The best indicator I've found for which way it needs to go is to follow the
belt routing; whichever way the pump turns the opposite rotation is needed to
remove it. When the vehicle is new the fan shroud should tell you which way
it goes, but with a used vehicle you never know if it's been wrecked or not
and if it has the fan shroud may have been replaced out of another vehicle
that did not have that thread, also looking at the threads of the replacement
part may help but you don't know if you have the right part or not at that

You can thank serpentine belts for this confusion; with V-belts everything
rotated in the same direction as the engine but with the serpentine belts
devices can be rotated in either direction. (You can imagine the diagnostic
nightmare when a counter clockwise turning water pump is installed on a
vehicle that should have a clockwise turning water pump!)
