Work in Progress:
front wheel spacers for the 2000 rims
fuel pump eccentric from Total Performance in Michigan
The late model 5.0 used an electric fuel pump. Because I want to run a mechanical pump I had to use the 289 front timing cover. The 289 fuel pump eccentric does not fit on the production cam gear. Total Performance makes an eccentric that fits on the gear so you can use the mechanical pump. It took about 5 minutes to install with the cover off.

The late model 5.0 engine has 2 guide pins on the lower bolts for the timing cover. These will have to be removed to use a 289 cover. A set of pliers worked for me.
aluminum fuel line has been removed completely from the
I am planning on buying steel braided line to run from the tank to the pump, then from the pump to the carb. Eventually I would like to replace the tank with a fuel cell.
