    I've been doing quite a bit of research recently on acoustic treatments, and I think I'm just about ready to order some materials. The Box Town Cars are pretty quiet already, as you say, but they're...

    Off topic, but could you write a bit on the sound deadening you did and how it's turned out?

    Well done.

    It's still only a sample size of two, but I think plunger/needle valve failure has got to be the primary issue these sensors have. As you found, it seems the plunger needs to be free...

    Yes, simply bridging the lines does nothing more than give you steady, full cold. If you wanted to do something fancier you certainly could, and the things you're considering sound like you're on the...

    The slow leak is built into the ATC sensor. When you switch to hot the needle valve closes off the vacuum supply and the remaining vacuum going to and in the temp servo leaks out through the hole in...

    Check out this thread for some ideas on repairing your ATC sensor. I believe that so long as the needle valve/plunger in your sensor is still there, these sensors should be repairable. I've only...

    A little off topic, but what padding did you find under the carpet. Is it just a layer of jute? Or did they put some sort of rubber or vinyl later between like on the cover between the rear seat and...

    I found UV blocking window tint to do quite well in reducing my need for AC. Though we have no humidity here, so that may not be as helpful in Virginia.

    Interesting. I still don't fully understand the difference between air shocks and air springs as far as their effect on ride quality. I thought shocks just dampen vibrations while springs maintain...

    I can now confirm that at least the driver's side fender liner from a '90 TC will fit a Box. Despite the body style changes, the fender liners remained pretty similar. All mounting points are the...

    I saw a nearly identical wagon in the economy lot at the Vegas airport back in late May. But it turns out the wheels and wood grain fade are different. Makes me wonder how many Boxes are still left...

    Well, in the latest on the car's shaking, I'm looking into the lower ball joints. They're both totally covered in greasy sludge. The boots are pretty pliable underneath, but clearly they've been...

    If it's anodized a metal polish won't do much of anything. The anodization would have to be removed first before the aluminum can be addressed. Then you'd want to protect it afterwards with a clear...

    Well I got the job done. In and out in about three and a half hours. Got a jack on the trans and was able to get just enough clearance to pull the old mount straight out. Grinding out the crossmember...

    What's the best way to do the trans mount?

    I was figuring I'd unbolt the mount, jack the trans up, and pull the mount out. But an LMR video showed them supporting the trans and dropping the...

    I think so. I've become more skeptical of the idea that the bi-metal loses tension over time. It's two different metals joined to each other, whose layering ought to provide some rigidity. And it...

    Yes, I picked up a Mustang mount and held it up to the car - the studs that go through the crossmember are inset maybe half an inch. Pretty strange that Ford would go through the trouble of making...

    It's been a little cooler here lately, so I've been able to confirm full operation on my ATC sensor. I feel pretty strongly now that the plunger falling out of position and failing to seal the valve...

    That interior is quite striking. Black carpet, white upholstery, and all that dark 'wood'. I wish the wood on the doors was something that carried over into the later years.

    Good to know on the shocks. The instructions are all just pictograms, so not a lot of nuance there.

    That is nice. I had picked up one for my own Box, but never got around to installing it. Do you have any pictures of how it mounts, or advice on making the swap?

    I don't see any rust on mine. In fact, the upper washer and nuts look brand new. The lower half looks pretty good, too. Knock on wood, but I'm hoping there won't be any trouble.
