    yeah I'm a stock plug type of guy. Thats why I put coppers back in the Mark VII. Just past experience with the 302, they don't idle as well with fancy plugs vs boring Motorcraft coppers. The 4.6 I...

    none of my cars have wanted more than 10. The Towncar and the black Mark VII both pinged with any advance. The white one very slightly pings even at 10, though that mostly went away when I swapped...

    I've never had the line pop out, but there is an O ring down inside that seals against the steel tube. When it gets rock hard and the line moves for whatever reason they just vomit fluid. They...

    I've also seen the "newspaper test" done. basically stick a magazine or equivalent into the fan and if it stops, the clutch is done. If you get confetti, its fine.

    probably would just push the goop out. My bigger fear would be that its going to start mixing coolant in the oil, from there its a short trip to milkshake station with a siding of no main bearings.

    If you're doing the pump, at least rock the crank and check for timing chain slop. 88 should be the good double roller chain that last just about forever, but may as well confirm. With the pump off...
