    I think the lever on the side of the trans needs to change. Every floor shifted AOD I've seen has a lever that points the wrong way vs the column shift models.

    Could be worse, the 255 did exist.

    I always thought C4 was the perfect name for that piece of junk given how often they blew up in stock form. They're horribly sloppy things too.

    if you aren't tuning it out, get one of those faker plugs that simulates the EGR in the closed position. The ECM won't throw fits about missing hardware, but it won't lean out the fuel mix or try to...

    Chrysler Lean Burn was the electronic crap.

    Wonder if anyone has ever stuffed a V10 in one. Those were essentially a 360 with 2 more cylinders. Seems like it would be a fun and silly thing to...

    The 1988 MY actually started fairly early in 1987, sometime around May I think. Usually it starts around October. Not sure why, but Ford ran a short 1987 MY and switched over to 1988 production...

    Never been impressed with a set of Monroes, they're usually mushy and they don't seem to hold up well.

    Thinking its for the two line fuel pump. Not so much a vapor line as the fuel return line. Those started to appear late in the carb era to deal with vapor lock problems. Keep the fuel moving...

    toe slightly in makes the wheel center a little more, but makes it more dead in the middle. Toe out makes it more responsive but prone to drift and wander. Dead on zero is the worst of both, numb...

    Alt and PS bracket is the same, its the AC bracket that is specific for the 351. I think only one bolt gets used vs 2 though. Use the proper water pump for the engine, it all just fits together...

    Wonder if vintage fuel has any value. Sell it to the "retro everything" crowd. Genuine pre-COVID gasoline, low miles, second owner. No lowballers, I know what I have.
