    I haven't replaced one of these so I'm not totally sure; I would be concerned that the chrome and the plastic expand at different rates. At a certain temperature they will delaminate. Also,...

    The smog pump system essentially pumps fresh air into the exhaust stream during startup, to compensate for the rich starting mixture and help prevent catalyst fouling when cold. I believe it does so...

    First things first. Air, fuel, spark. Check the vacuum lines and make sure they're correctly routed and not damaged. Check the IAC wiring. Check cap, rotor, wires, plugs. No squirrels in the air...

    Yeah, that does sound like a bunch of work.
    If I didn't have another project (or two...or three...) and if this wasn't my daily driver, I think it wouldn't be too awful. I like the thought of...

    Even a big radiator has tiny passages. If the engine is full of gunk, a big radiator will still clog.

    Good thinking. I'd just figured that since the Mustang and F-series used the same switch with the new starter, it would be okay; but I'm not 100% positive those DON'T have a starter relay; and even...

    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.
