    its in the ignition switch itself. Have to verify what contacts go dead when cranking. I'd probably just pop the small wire off the starter solenoid so you can hold it in crank mode as long as...

    1987 specifically sometimes had the old crappy single row timing chain. Would be worth checking that for slop. Only practical way of doing that without opening the engine is to remove the...

    recline deleted, meaning no adjustment at all? Thats odd. My 86 Towncar was about as base model as it gets, not even having power passenger seats, and it's original seats had manual recline...

    There are a lot of things on my shelf that were purchased purely because they were very cheap. I have an OEM NOS temperature switch for the Continental that I bought for like 3 bucks. I don't even...

    I was also thinking carb dumping fuel problem, but it would only dump the contents of the bowl. Its not gravity fed. A stuck choke will make it run fat and "make oil" though. I remember replacing...

    its a return style, not very different than SEFI honestly. Similar regulator but it lives in the CFI unit itself.

    thats more or less a plumber's torch, which is just acetylene and air. Should get the job done, just takes longer. Can also get oxy-mapp rigs. Just don't get a lot of burn time out of those, the...

    If you get the timing to advance more it does a better job of running on the lean side. Still have to ride the line between lean economy and lean damaging the engine.
