    86 was steel. 87 seems to be hit and miss. 88+ is mostly steel, except for the ones that are not. I know someone who lost an engine in an 88 from a plastic cam gear. I know of no way to tell for...

    sounds to me like you've got some real hack mechanics in the area. Someone honest and competent would have had this running months ago for a lot less money. Unfortunately electrical stuff, even the...

    surprised you cant find a shell for the fob. Did you try ebay? They often have cheap crap like that. Probably some questionable quality China knockoff but it might be good enough.

    The JBL is quite decent. Have it factory in the Mark VII, and I installed it in the Continental as an upgrade from the football amp. Something like 4x the power and its pretty noticeable. The...
  5. If the Panther had ever come with 4 wheel air,...

    If the Panther had ever come with 4 wheel air, I'd be more inclined to swap the frame if I'm being honest about it. Handles and rides well. Even the Continental with its coat hanger sway bars and...

    its a controller. Computer. Module. Brain. Whatever you want to call it. Box with inputs and outputs. Could probably replace it with something built in the space of a credit card with modern...

    hm, these people have seat covers for my Continental. Would be some $450 for a set. That car's interior is in pretty sad shape. Padding is fine but the leather is f'd. Might be a solution. Of...

    fitting cap fits.

    Caps are useful, but I won't pretend I'm in love with the look. Good if you need the traction and dry semi-secure storage and transport for things that won't fit in the front...

    I bought NOS non-air shocks for mine for 10 bucks a piece a few years ago. Date codes are from the early 1990s. They're actually fine. I needed something to replace aftermarket shocks that had...

    Taurii? Taureses? whatever the plural is. They have a nice charge cable and fuse that can be robbed. Takes a little time to extract it from all the clips and zip ties but its got the proper end to...

    the cars never ran bank injection. It was always sequential after they went off CFI.

    for some reason I'm thinking the trucks had a big oval dish. The cars had a basically flat piston with a...

    I never actually measured it. I did the old poke and hope procedure. 1.7 Scorpion rockers because the old Crane ones were whipped and I had them on hand. Stuck the cam in, determined I needed...

    The 100a needs a different upper bracket, and doesn't really have much better idle speed output than the 50 or 60a you have now. Honestly no point in using one. The 3g is the better unit.

    I'm...

    if you need to mic the crank, I've got micrometers. Unfortunately I do not have a set of inside mics to do the bores.

    thats nothing to do with the firing order, its all about the camshaft. Stuff an Explorer cam in there if you want the same seat of the pants feel, but just more of it. Done for by about 4500, where...

    The HO cam honestly sucks in a heavy car, especially if you don't mate it with a looser converter and/or much lower rear gears. Consider the weight difference involved here. They're fine with a...

    the HO firing order is better for the life of the bottom end bearings. The "Lopo knock" is a thing for a reason.

    so the PS pump got here. Looks fine. D8 part number on the pump body, E8 on the reservoir. Looks exactly like a Panther pump. Its not painted, but that can be fixed or ignored as you see fit. ...

    the Mark VII ECM is more available. Speed density, automatic, HO, 19#.

    Speed density can work right, but its probably going to need a tune to do it. Stock, its very likely to run lean. I had...

    pretty much everyone has that probblem. The caps are really the only fix. They look pretty good really, you can only tell they are installed if you look close at it.

    If the shock leaks, replace the shocks. You can use standard aftermarket air shocks and there is an adapter for about 10 bucks to interface it. OE Motorshaft shocks for this do not exist anymore. ...

    You can't keep the smog and emissions stuff without the ECM. It runs entirely from the computer. If you're putting a carb on an 88, you may as well de-smog it because its just useless weight at...
