Hey guys. Month and a half ago or so I picked up my very first mustang. It's a 89 GT. It's a roller. Just got a motor for it. It's a 97 explorer 5.0 engine. Car has no harness or computer so it's getting a carb swap. The engine unfortunately didn't come with the accessory brackets. With that being said, do I want the explorer engine dress or the mustang engine dress? Thanks

Long ways from Lakeland Florida.... I probably have at least some of those brackets, Distributor, PS pump etc.... Not sure what got mixed in with my Explorer take off brackets.....
If you would wanna ship and the total cost I may be interested in purchasing what you have. Car has power steering pump in it, just no bracket on motor yet

With any luck someone more local to you might join in and be able to help you out.....

Forgive me, I don't have what I thought I did.... The intake and distributor are off of an 89, but the rest is all explorer I believe...
Sorry to have wasted your time.....
Here are some pics..

No such thing as a waste man. My foxbody guy and I are going back and forth between running Foxbody engine dress or explorer engine dress. Thinkin about the explorer ac compressor for sure though, for the modern ac refrigerant
