    A Hayden 5942 from Rock Auto looks to be the correct replacement. There is an upgraded assembly, Motorcraft YS-173, but those are difficult to find.

    It sounds like everything is going to line up well with the TV so hopefully the adjusting goes smooth. Excited to see the project in the final stages.

    Glad your making progress! Iím curious to know if youíve got a roller block once you get the intake off. I believe they switched to that block mid 1985 model year.

    Definitely a neat garage! I would put a sheet of 6 mil plastic down over that dirt though. The moisture coming up will rot the undercarriage quickly.

    I think Iím going to order it and give it a try. Rock auto has them for $100. If the fitment is a little off due to the heat riser it could probably be tweaked a little bit to work.
