    Its got an air temp sensor but not sure if its part of the MAF or in the air cleaner lid. At some point it moved from the lid to being part of the MAF but I don't know when exactly. Pretty easy to...

    I've found that old tires get hard and the wet traction gets bad, followed by the dry traction. They also tend to get loud. Never owned winter tires, it just doesn't snow enough here to justify the...

    I've never had anything that would lift an engine high enough to do it with the trans. Keep in mind a Lincoln is like a foot longer in front than a Vic too so its more of a pain in the ass. ...

    The problem with trying to thread bolts in there is usually the holes are so packed with carbon you can't actually use the threads. The more sensible way is to take that crossover pipe, cut the ends...

    truck parts maybe? Just seems odd that it wouldn't be shared with anything else. Its just a seat mechanism.

    I've also left the power steering and AC in the car to not have to deal with it. Easy opportunity to dump the PS pump out for a partial fluid change though.

    honestly I don't feel that having the engine out makes the motor mount job all that much easier. If you were doing lower control arm bushings, then yes. Access to the bolts is easy at that point. ...

    stock trans shifts about 4500 but you can manually hold first gear if you want to. No reason to, it doesn't make any power up that high.

    basically its one of those things that isn't a bad idea,...

    What thats really for is to reduce flow in the core at high RPM so its less likely to blow up. Won't prevent it from going bad from age or normal driving but if you spend a lot of time at 5000 rpm...

    its not actually a pressure switch. it reads whether the slide valve in the prop valve assembly is moved one way or the other. Either its not centered, or the switch is just bad. No idea if its...

    so they aren't uncut, kinda. They're partially cut. Apparently if you buy a replacement ignition cylinder, it comes cut on 1-4 and 6. If you have 5 and 7-10 cut to match the door, you now have a...

    consider a 2.26 with a 3 speed is pretty much the same as a 2.73 with an AOD in terms of RPM. You get much better acceleration from the 2.73 though, so in-town driving is probably more efficient...

    Whats the caster like side to side? Forget if it pulls towards the low or high side but either way it pulls. Often they set the caster split slightly to pull a smidge to the left to compensate for...

    honestly I don't really think you'd get much improvement out of multiport on the highway. Around town probably, those long runners make more torque down low.

    I guess the smart thing to do is just buy another cylinder to take apart, that way I know what I need, and if it all goes pear-shaped I haven't actually made the car not work.
