    likely, but if you take the thing to the hardware store, just get one size under the one that won't go into the hole in the bracket. Or use drill bits to size it.

    they go into the water jacket. Steel + water + time = fusion. The other ones go into the lifer galley so they are constantly splashed with oil. Nothing to go wrong there.

    If you can't shatter the bit by whacking it with a punch, heat it until it glows red then slowly back the heat away. That will take the temper out and it will just be soft steel at that point.

    they hold themsevles in place if the tabs are not bent out.

    so long as the tabs aren't broken, you can probably find a couple of ball bearings at the hardware store and fix it.

    Not related, just agreeing with GM_Guy that I don't think the hood pad as a fire suppressor idea is likely to be very effective.

    I think iac open on throttle open is normal. It keeps the engine from stalling when the throttle is slammed shut, and the PCM can roll back the air as it sees fit in order to bring it back down to...

    What he said, though strictly speaking it ought to function either way but I don't think you'll ever get it back out if it goes in backwards.

    Looks about the same as the Panther one if I remember right. Its not real complicated, once you have eyes on the thing, figuring out how to take it apart is pretty obvious.
