    Stock arms with a panhard will do a better job of lateral location than really stiff arms with none. The binding problem is a much larger issue on a street driven car. Its also going to have a whole...

    I suspect the only real difference between the various sensors is the adjustment to allow for different amounts of light that gets to the sensor through the hole in the dash. I notice the one in the...

    E1VB is 81 Lincoln, so you should be fine with one of those. I have a Turd sensor on the Continental.

    looking at the 86 Towncar EVTM should be close enough for reference here. It appears that the headlight power source is a fuse link, and the parking lamp source is a fuse in the box. Do your park...

    With the relay coils in parallel, I don't understand why one would operate normally and the other would not. As your diagram was drawn, a single +12v to 86 would fire both of them. If the voltage...

    If you want lateral stability for turns, you want a panhard or watts link. Stiffer arms really aren't going to do that for you. A panhard should make the shit road behavior a fair bit better, I've...

    the problem with stiffer arms is that the suspension needs that flex in order to work. Unless these have spherical rod ends to allow the rear to rotate around the driveshaft axis, you're liable to...

    pull the shrouds off the column. Once inside you'll see the cable come up and hook the small side arm on the shifter. Use a pick or long, skinny screwdriver to lift the loop off the shifter arm. ...

    do you have another known-working IAC? if the sensors are good, it could just be the IAC is bad.

    Is the SPOUT connector missing? That has a lot to do with idle control too.

    the sensor only is used for CC, but it has to be mechanically intact to drive the cable. Honestly the VSS rarely is a problem in these but I suppose nothing is impossible.

    I think you're about 1500 lb over curb weight there. That sounds like GVWR, which is curb + max load.

    It was the only instrument we got. No oil pressure or volt gauge. Digital dash got just a complex functional equivalent to the "its dead" light.

    Don't. The canister also serves to store fumes while the engine isn't running. I think it also serves to make sure you don't get full manifold vacuum in the tank, which could cause it to collapse. ...
