    I've been using white lithium grease on my gears, but I also have replacement ones in my cluster, so I have no idea how that would affect original gears. I just recall the originals were more waxy,...

    Maybe in his experience, but you’ll be changing them in 15K or less. My ‘97 runs fine with them and isn’t too far derived from an earlier nPI 4.6.

    The original spark plugs only had four threads, all new replacements will have eight, but will only utilize the lower four.

    The system is also waste spark, so you'd want to use double platinum in...

    Chain is definitely worn, but it also looks like you have the original nylon teeth type timing set. Those have been reportedly bad for longevity.

    While it looks funky how the wires bridge under each other, you can see it does it to get...

    Finally got some needed work done to the car. Been driving the '87 a good bit and have been ignoring the important stuff I've been putting off.

    The '97 picked up a real neat stumble at light...

    FWIW, the timing chains and guides have never been done in my '97. Have nearly 220K on the clock and it runs good with no weird noises. Seems to be the later design stuff that usually needs more...

    For shocks, I’d recommend KYB Gas-A-Just police rate ones. I ordered mine for a ‘97 Crown Victoria because it didn’t list them for ‘87.

    Just a side note, if you do have to adjust the throttle stop, you may need to also make an adjustment to the TPS since you may take it out of range. IIRC, the acceptable range for closed throttle is...

    Just as a sidebar, if one assumes that the Mustang ECM doesn't have the logic to operate the cruise control on an integrated car, couldn't one just get the servo and cruise module from an '86-'87 car...

    IIRC, its something like 6 pins that change. You've got to do a little re-pinning at the ECU to get the job done, but there's plenty of documentation that exists, especially from Mustang forums....

    So the GT40 stuff does flow better than traditional HO stuff. The Explorer cam profile is a bit different than the HO cam profile, leaving the Explorer cam to better low and mid RPM power, as where...

    Damn, what a trip! Looks like some real fun going cross country. Outside of the small issues, that's pretty nice that it cruised back with ease. I'm sure some other people would be more wary before...

    They’re the stock lifters. I was tired when I shot that video and said lifter, but I think I meant to say rocker. I’m hoping that’s the case, otherwise, the intake is coming back off.

    68-72 netted my best MPG with dual exhaust and 2.73 rear gears. The 4.6 does pretty good for economy when kept between 1500-1900 RPM.
