    Good thing my pic had the label showing. $9 beats $40! Just make sure the big hose diameter goes to the bottom of the jug. Most lawn sprayers have ~1/16" tube inside the tank.
    I do clean mine out good with a splash of aviation fuel and a squirt of brake cleaner, then upside down to dry. Then its ready for the other fluid. But for $9, I can have another one.

    Sometymes the most obvious solution is right there in front of me but I just don't see it.

    I'm gonna try this Carbyne syringe I have used for removing excess fluid from the brake bleeding. I'll just attach a longer hose to reach the differential port. I'll clean it out like drano38 did and although i'll have to refill it, it should be better that my old way.

    file-4.jpeg Excellent choice. I went with what I had and it worked fine except it could only handle a little over a quart at a tyme. Nonetheless, it worked just fine.

    Yeah, the pan wasn't strong enough to contain the rods.

    Currently mulling over my options.
    So, how much does a pint of blood go for these days....anybody know?
    On the up side, the camera angle was perfect.

    This will be a hard call. If the top end is good, valves still point the same direction as before the smoke screen. You may get away with a new bottom end. The power you were making is hard to walk away from.
    Swapping in a coyote sounds exciting. Until you figure in the new fuel system, electrical system, ECU etc.
    I usually wait for the hangover to subside and then figure out the next step.
    Good luck.
    Blood by the pint? Depending upon the type, is about the same as Motorcraft full synthetic at full retail.

    From one White Stang to another, I feel your pain. Had the same thing happen years back with a different car, and with the replacement motor came back even faster! Know you will do the same , as you have the passion , the sickness, the love of the track like so many of us do!!

    Yap....unfortunately I don't have the budget for it at the moment, so it's going to have to be cheap or its going to sit. :(
