  1. Where has the limited time gone? Anyway, the '97 made it out to Texas and back in early October with no issue. The '87 on the other hand blew the heater core towards the end of September. Nick helped me swap the core out in late October. Ballooned the old one from excess pressure. Opted to install a manual shutoff valve for the warmer season to aid the A/C system and avoid excess pressure when giving it the business. Swapped the very original idler arm in November. Snagged some Amsoil at NAPA for nonsensical low prices... $2.99/q
  2. I think most Ford shop manuals prefer the wires to have roughly 4000 to 6000 ohms per foot.
  3. Been working on everything over the last few weeks... Pulled the carpet out of the D-150 and patched up the floor. I've got a whole A/C system ready for install since none of the old R-12 equipment plays with the aftermarket replacement parts. Had the QuadraJet rebuilt by a co-worker. If I can get the interior buttoned up soon, it'll be time to get the mechanical bits fixed and see about getting a TorqueFlite working again. Marquis needed the front brakes replaced. Old pads wore unevenly despite no sticking slide pins or other caliper trouble. Cut the rotors and tossed in a
  4. So Discord ain't bad since you can offer real time information to people rather quickly. I presently help moderate CrownVic.Net's Discord server. It's definitely different than being on the forums, but I guess the issue here is presence. CVN has been around for over 20 years as a Panther forum and I know as despicable as TCCA is now after they got bought out, they still manage to catch more folks than we do. I dunno what presence they have on a more mobile platform, but there might be a good spot for folks needing some information for the platform right now if no one is filling that vo
  5. 1-3 should be on the firewall side, 4-6 should be on the radiator support side. "Front" of the engine faces towards the passenger side.
  6. Station wagon came home earlier this month. Also came back with the TorqueFlite for the Dodge. I decided today would be a good day to get started working on various tasks the truck needs and just happened to run into several roadblocks, but nothing I can't mitigate. So I need to drop the HVAC box out from the dash. It was damaged by crackheads working on the truck years ago since they tried cutting a hole in the floor and instead set the carpet and dash on fire over a select bit. Well, it seems the windshield gasket covers several screws that must be removed to properly get the HVAC
  7. Since Thanksgiving is coming up and I'm headed out of town to see family, I took the car in for tires on Saturday since I'd run the Kumhos down below 4/32nd all the way around. While some may argue about the style, I absolutely wanted another whitewall tire again. However, I did not want to compromise on tire width, as I found the 225/70R15 (fleet size) preferable over the 215/70R15 (retail size). Luckily, Nexen offered a all-season touring tire that fit the bill perfectly. I also took the time to take the set of turbines Nick grabbed for me and did my best to clean and respray them in Ar
  8. Nice necrothread Also, what an awful reply. "Use the internet" -> We're already here on the internet "Contact an auto locksmith" -> Plugs a very city/region specific locksmith webpage; just a wee bit like spam there Welcome to the forum, hopefully your experience is more up hill from here.
  9. Buddy with the '99 came by so we could put on the door trim we yanked from the junkyard a while back from a '09-'11 car. Something with the '98-'08 door trim on Crown Victoria seems to like getting brittle with age, then falling off the door and leaving chunks behind on the double-sided tape. We stuck his original trim back on several times before there was no more backing material left to adhere to and the pieces started to physically spit apart. Looks a little funky since the later years didn't use a fender trim bit, just on the doors. It'll be back Saturday for an oil change and q
  10. Definitely check the air intake hose between the air cleaner box and throttle body for any cracks or loose seals. Also worth checking the crankcase breather where it goes into the intake, sometimes the boots on the ends get crumbly and start sucking air. Inspect vacuum lines while you're there as well.
  11. This is more so What Did You Do To Your Friend's Car than mine, but it was plenty involved. This is all on the gray '99 Crown Victoria I've spoken of that I helped my friend get several months back. There's been two things that had gone somewhat un-repaired after getting the car as roadworthy as possible. That was the cooling system and the heater. Originally the cooling system smelled awful, looked like pond water, and the heater core had been bypassed for sometime. I've flushed the cooling system with water on no less than four separate occasions. I've never gotten it to stay clean
  12. Worked the '97 a fair bit yesterday. It was supposed to only move a light trailer, but my plans to move a vehicle fell through with more adequate equipment so... ...I moved my '86 D-150 40 miles one way with it. Kinda arduous working up and down the hills between Augusta and Waynesboro. I maxed around 50 MPH with it in tow as the rear tires on the truck were questionable at best and I wasn't going to push my luck. I planned on dragging the combo down into the building, however after walking in and opening the garage door, I realized there'd be no room to turn my car
  13. I have a unique set of problems, and apparently saying no is one of them. Hello 1986 Dodge D150 Royal SE with 360 V8 Luckily I don't think I'll lose too much money (if any) if I try for a re-sell on this. Got it for $400 (within CVN Pricing) since the owners wanted $1000 and the scrap man offered $250. It's cheap because the transmission is in the bed. The skinny on this is the original owner gave the truck to his daughter and her husband about 11 years ago. The husband was driving it several years ago and so found it wasn't catching in drive and had issues engaging in low gear
  14. In July, Nick helped me swap the tailgate out on the '87. Huge PITA job there getting everything lined up and working. Much of the electrical equipment from the damaged gate had to be swapped into this one since it had sat for so long. Once I got it home, I tried to address a weepy transmission pan that had appeared after I got the car back from the shop a few months ago. Fitted a new pan, gasket, and filter... and it had the gall to puke it out the bell housing while I was re-filling it. Holds fluid running, pukes it out when shut off. Considering what I'm going to check o
