    Yep, that's why I was saying that whatever timetable worked for you was good for me, since they're the last parts to come off. I will be busy at sea, so there's no hurry on my end at all.

    I go back to sea a week from Wednesday, but I can still PayPal and my roommates can get packages, so whatever timetable works for you for the rear sway/control arms.

    I second the vacuum dump valve. Many of the cruise/speed control modules have labels for the wiring connections so you can figure out what goes where pretty easily.

    Just as a note, here's a link to the dealer supplied cruise parts. Look at the picture; these are all the parts you need for any Ford from about 1983 to 1995 that doesn't have cruise (or to repair...

    Also make sure the check valve is in good shape, between the vacuum canister and the intake. The lines to the HVAC and cruise should be AFTER the check valve.

    My favorite style of Ford radio, too. Although I usually replace the radios with more modern ones nowadays...one of those I might consider sneaking an aux input into (like I need another project).

    You're correct, I didn't say it well. Also, way off topic. Ford put more marketing money into the Turbo Coupe instead of the SVO, for internal reasons. But technically, yes, Turbo GT Mustang 79-82...

    I *THINK* part of the difference on the early-to-late Panther is to the type of motor, so the field and ground wiring are slightly different.

    Ford didn't have that many wiper motors, so generally...

    The newer Volvos aren't the older Volvos, that's for sure.
