    part of the very definition of always trying to go faster. The late Carroll Smith wrote something I really loved that speaks to this point. “There is no magic! The one basic truth of successful racecar preparation bears repeating. There is no magic. There is only logic, common sense, forethought, vast amounts of hard work, and a fanatic dedication to the task at hand”.

    You will join a community of others who have earned their own… and THAT is the story of Factory Five Racing and that is what awaits you in this process.

  • Page 12: Safety Notice

    If, while building, driving or racing this Factory Five Racing kit, should you become injured or die, it will be the result of your own conscious decision and we at Factory Five Racing, Inc., disclaim any responsibility of any kind.

  • Page 13: Safety Tips

    Safety Tips Read the manual. It is at least a good guide and place to start. Don’t take short cuts. Before starting work, make sure you have the proper tools, the required parts, and sufficient space for the job. If you damage any parts, it will probably be because they were either not stored properly or, the wrong tool was used to install them.

  • Page 14: How To Use This Book

    How to use This Book This Assembly manual is intended to help you build your Factory Five Kit. This book will not explain such things as engine or transmission building.

  • Page 24: Aluminum Removal

    Aluminum Removal ¼” nut driver, jack stands, marker. Do one panel at a time. Be careful of the sharp aluminum edges, they can cut you. Using a marker outline the underside of each panel where it contacts the chassis. This is done to locate where to drill rivet holes when the panels are permanently mounted later on.

  • Page 25

    Mark each panel and take pictures of how the panels fit together (i.e. which is on top). Remove each panel after it has been marked until the chassis is bare. Keep the #8 screws to help with aluminum positioning later during build-up. Use jack-stands to position your frame in your workspace with plenty of room to move things around.

Torque the front flexible brake line to caliper banjo bolts to 29 ft-lbs. Hard brake lines Run one of the longer 60” brake lines from the T fitting over to the passenger side adapter. The line will bend very easy but be careful not to kink it.

    Use a long 60” brake line and route from the second master cylinder toward the rear of the car. You can either run down the outside or inside front of the footbox, in this case we have run inside which is cleaner, just be careful to keep the line firmly attached out of the way of the pedals.

    Use a union to attach the remaining 60” brake line. Run the brake line up the back of the 2”x 3” tube. At this point your routing will depend on your rear brakes. 87-93 Mustang solid axles have a single flex line that runs to the middle of the axle then out to the calipers. Newer axles and the FFR rear brakes run the flexible brake lines direct from the chassis to the caliper (the IRS is done like this, there is an extra length of line and a T to allow similar routing to the front.) www.factoryfive.com...

    These instructions are designed to supplement the assembly manual where the assembly process is different from the build up using a small block. Sections of the manual that deal with wiring and motor preparation of the small block will not apply and can be skipped. Read through these instructions before beginning assembly as some of the changes occur early on in the build up.

    460 Single plane manifold with 850 CFM Carburetor The throttle cable from the kit can be used with a carburetor and most Holleys come with the correct linkage ball to snap on the cable. Use a universal throttle linkage bracket from Holley or equivalent to hook the cable up to the intake.

    427 Engine Mount with rubber isolator. The transmission we recommend is a Tremec TKO heavy duty 5 speed that will fit the big block engines with a Lakewood bellhousing and the spacer mentioned in the suggested parts list. In order to use any manual transmission the clutch linkage will need to be converted for use with the pedals and cable from the Mustang.

    Clutch Fork installed awaiting transmission The transmission mount to the crossmember must also be fitted with spacers due to the higher centerline of the Big Block crankshaft. Two one-inch spacers are fit between the mount and the transmission, which raises the entire assembly, by one inch. Even with this raise the rear of the tranny needs to be trimmed to fit over the 4-inch crossmember as explained in the manual for the TKO transmission.

  • Page 535: Installation Instructions

    Installation instructions These instructions apply to any 1986-2004 Ford Mustang 8.8 rear axle with Traction-Lok differential (FFR#s 14319,14970) using 1994-2004 OEM Mustang style disc brakes (FFR#s 14834, and 14903). The installation of this kit can be performed by anyone with an average amount of mechanical experience, but it is very important to follow the instructions and refer to a Mustang Shop Manual or equivalent.

    non-synthetic gear oil with GL-5 or GL-6 rating, 4oz of Friction modifier (Ford# CM-19546- A1), Brake Fluid. Remove the ten bolts that hold on the differential cover using a ½” socket wrench. Note: If you are installing disc brakes on a used rear axle, leave one bolt in the top of the cover and have a drain pan ready under the axle, then gently pry the bottom of the cover away from the axle to let the oil drain out using a small pry bar .

    Reach behind the differential and push out the center pin from the back side. www.factoryfive.com 508-291-3443...

  • Page 538

    Once the pin is removed, push the axles in toward the differential. When you do this the C -clips that hold the axles in will be visible and they may even fall out. If the C-clips do not fall out, push them off with a small screw driver or needle nose pliers.

    Install the brake caliper brackets so that the caliper will mount on the front side of the axle. Use the four ”-16 flange bolts provided and torque them to 45-50 ft/lbs. www.factoryfive.com 508-291-3443...

  • Page 540

    Slide the axles back into the differential and re-install the C-clips. When re-installing the C-clips it helps to use a small magnet to hold onto them as it is difficult to reach the axle and hold onto the clip. Caution: Care must be taken not to let axle shaft splines damage inner wheel bearing oil seals or rear wheel bearing assembly.

  • Page 541

    Once the C-clips are in, pull the axle back out until it stops so the clips are held in place. Install the center pin and the bolt that holds it. It’s a good idea to put Locktite on the bolt before installing it, then torque it to 25 ft/lbs.

  • Page 542

    Install the rear cover. We recommend using a high temp oil safe RTV silicone rather than a paper gasket. Use a liberal amount, and tighten the bolts to 28-38 ft/lbs. Next install the brake rotor using one lug nut to hold it in place. Make sure to clean the surface of the rotor with brake parts cleaner before installing the caliper.

  • Page 543

    Once the rotor is on, put the brake pads in the caliper by pushing down on the pad to compress the wire springs on the top of the pad, and then slide them into the slots in the caliper hanger. www.factoryfive.com 508-291-3443...

  • Page 544

    When installing the caliper make sure that the brake fluid bleed screw is on the top side of the caliper. Do not worry about the LH/RH markings on the calipers. Torque the two 12mm mounting bolts to 55ft/lbs using a 16mm socket. Allow the silicone on the cover to dry overnight then fill the rear end with 4oz of friction modifier then 1.875qts of 75W-90 gear oil (or until oil reaches the fill plug).
