    Good to know about the PS and AC, and about the flex plate bolts. The PCV valve, grommet, and screen were the first job I did on this engine. They ought to still be good, but it's possible they...

    I had done one engine mount. The passenger aftermarket one fell apart on me during install. Vacuum lines have been done, as has everything involving the intake manifold. As such I'm hoping I can...

    Engine Out Service

    While under the car last week I noticed coolant drops from freeze plugs on both sides of the block. There was no coolant on the ground, though, so I thought it might be something I could monitor....

    Cross caster is -0.6*. I think the spec actually allows for +-0.75* between them, and I'm sneaking in right on the lower limit. For each wheel camber should be 0.5* +-0.75* and caster at 3*, +1*...

    Made the trip to Barstow this morning for an alignment. They saw me right away. I watched from the parking lot, the guy doing it never touched the control arms. Caster came in just barely within...

    Thanks. The guy at the Auto Craft shop said it looked like I'd purchased a new arm. I doubt the paint will hold up as well as something from the factory, but any rust protection is better than...

    The service manual says 6-10 lb-ft on the pan, 16-20 lb-ft for the extension housing, and 80-120 lb-in for the filter. I somehow have two lb-in torque wrenches, one from Harbor Freight and the other...

    I decided to go with the next size down for the o-rings. They're a bit more snug now, so I guess I'll find out soon if that was the right call.

    Extension housing is back on the trans, which is...

    Well we'll find out soon just how much those lower bushings play into the ride. I can see a tear on one of them for the passenger lower arm. Driver's side bushings on both arms don't look nearly as...

    All four ball joints have been replaced. Used the air chisel at the shop to take out the upper joint rivets. Went a lot faster after I discovered you could up the chisel's intensity. Pressing out the...

    Having that fourth, overdriven gear really makes a difference. Makes me wonder how a Barge would perform if you threw an AOD in it.

    I'm taking the upper control arms into the auto craft shop today to grind out the ball joint rivets. They don't have the special tool to do the upper bushings, but several shade tree videos have...

    Trans dipstick tube o-ring has been replaced. Despite how far up there that bolt is, it's not that difficult a job. I believe it's a 16mm bolt, but once it was broken loose it came out by hand the...

    The splines were definitely wet. Most of the fluid has run off to the very end, and I've tried drying them a bit as well. I also don't believe fluid could keep dripping from the u-joint unless it was...

    Made some progress on this project yesterday. The driveshaft has been painted. It's not my best work, but it at least looks better than the gobs of oil and dirt that were stuck to it before.

    The car had less than 70,000 miles when I bought it, so it makes sense that these would be original joints falling and not replacements.

    Just got the driver's side pulled apart. Same story on...

    Thanks, Vic. I managed to get the spindle free and out of the way, still connected at the tie rod. Nearly got away with keeping the rotor on, but the dust shield seems to catch the lower control arm...

    Replacing the control arms may be easier, especially if the bushings need to be replaced, too. But I've got the ball joints already, and the arms themselves are so rust-free I'd feel bad just tossing...

    I've already ordered a tailshaft gasket, (hopefully) correct output shaft seal, and a box of nitrile o-rings. If I have one the right size I'll be sure to swap out the one on the speed sensor. I also...

    Driving to Phoenix and back earlier this year I averaged 20 mpg. That was about 1,000 miles round trip with 3.27 gears. Normally, though, I'd be more in the 18-19 mpg range.
