    I did, though I always just unbolt the fan from the water pump pulley. I don't believe I've ever separated the clutch from the fan. Will take a look, though.

    I had to replace a spark plug wire...

    Yeah, it's most noticeable when stopped while in gear, but I definitely can pick up on something when it gets above 40 or so, too. Goes away entirely as soon as it shifts into park.

    I'll try...

    Took another look at the exhaust last night, this time with the vacuum hooked up. Had a major leak at the passenger manifold to downpipe connection, as I suspected. Took a little coaxing to reseat,...

    I somehow managed to pass Washington state emissions without 3 of 4 catalytic converters, working EGR, or a functional PCV valve. But that was tailpipe only, no visual inspection. Doubt I'd fare as...

    Not to hijack the thread, but I'm curious about the inverse to this question. How far can you go with stock LoPo cam and ECU? Suppose the goal was to build power in low to mid RPMs, or to add some...

    I don't have answers for you, but isn't idling higher in park the standard operation?

    It's finally done. And I'm pretty satisfied with how it's turned out, too.

    Got the car back together and running last night for the first time in a month. Unfortunately, the exhaust leak I set out to fix is noticeably worse. Or it's moved. I can clearly hear a tick on...

    Was that a '90-'91 Town Car liner, or from a Vic or Grand Marquis? I can imagine a 90s Box would swap over fine, but whether the Aero TC liner works in a Box is the question. Or, I suppose, whether...

    Thanks, Vic. Looking at my own shop manual now I see the exact same diagram. Don't know how I missed that before. And yeah, if the manual is any guide, I guess they wanted you to remove the fender...

    Fender Liners

    I have half a mind to go pull a '90 driver's inner fender from the yard tomorrow, but I don't really understand how they're held in place. Specifically, how are the liners secured to the fender...

    No, it was the LKQ yard in Hesperia, which is along some railroad tracks. I have been to the LKQ yard in Victorville, or rather a little northwest of it. That one spans either bank of a dry river bed...

    Went on a whim to the junkyard in Hesperia this past Sunday. There was a '90 P74 Crown Vic that had come into the yard that Friday, and I was hopeful it might have a rear sway bar. Sure enough, it...

    Made some progress in the last couple days. The reflective trays have been painted silver, as have the metal clips that hold the lenses in place. It wasn't the world's finest paint job, but as I may...

    Well, the crossover smug pump pipe may be moot. I made another inspection of the cats today while cleaning rust off, and I had misremembered which upper cat was hollowed out. Turns out the only...

    It must've just been an 86 thing, because my 87 only turns on the front and rear turn signals with the hazards.

    Some sort of translucent spray paint could be a good option. I'll have to take a look at what's available.

    85-87 Town Car Rear Reflector

    Here's a little photo-documentation on the rear reflector strip for 85-87 Town Cars, though I imagine the reflectors for all Box TCs are similar. None of this is rocket science, but I've got the...

    Here are two that I found:

    A red on red 1984 up in St Cloud, MN, currently asking five grand.

    And a black with grey interior 1985 down in St Louis, which is apparently going for $5500.
