    There is a guide rod inside the door that will control window tilt, and I think there may also be a padded metal block at the top edge of the door for that. I'd probably loosen the bolt sticking out...

    If you get the good double side foam mounting tape, that works pretty well if you clean the area well with alcohol first.

    otherwise if you do screw it in, dip the screw in some grease before...

    Thats my best guess. It was fine before the swap and within a week afterward it was burning lots of oil. 14 of the 16 seals had the middle rubber bit shredded. New seals and its been fine ever...

    I don't mean to laugh but the timing of those statements is funny. About the same tends to happen to me, as soon as I say something is working well it immediately proves me wrong.

    In theory they can go fast with tall gears, in reality between the lack of aerodynamics and the 150 hp engine its just not going to. I've had mine going way too fast before, it makes unsavory...

    The E7 heads on my car were switched over to the positive seal types before I got them. If you look up parts for 5.0 Explorers you get ones that will pop onto old heads that aren't the umbrella...

    Fan of the large receiver hitch, even if I don't actually use the full capability. More stout construction and getting a hitch to fit it is easier.

    its engine RPM limited at like 6200. The stock parts won't let it spin that fast anyway unless you just mat the pedal in neutral.

    I'd get new material if you have to pull the old out. At this point in time it usually crumbles to little bits if you poke at it.

    Not having to add oil between changes is what I consider proper. Ford has other ideas but I refuse to deal with a quart every thousand miles.

    looks like 3rd up from the bottom, which is what the service manual says. Pin position more important than the wire color.

    capacitors mostly, but if its got a dead channel it possibly lost an output chip. I had one I had to toss. Some internal chip that does the switch from AM/FM/tape was bad on one channel. Pulled...

    I can tell you the 6 button has a better tuner in it. The old 4 button in my Conti fuzzes a lot. I remember the same issue from the original in the Towncar way back when I got the car.
