    kunar's turbo 1st gen

    After all the attention this truck got in the classified section, I promised i'd post an update with pics. The day i brought it home: First impressions? It's a nice little truck. Body is nice and clean, the wheel wells and fenders are solid. Paint is so-so, it looks good from a distance...

    02 explorer, manual trans swap?

    I have the opportunity to get an 02 explorer with a bad automatic trans. I've always preferred manuals, so of course the logical progression was to start planning a manual swap. The engine is a 4.6, so I'm assuming late 90's f150 for a donor trans. I'm guessing an xcal or similar could take care...

    Diagnosing a 5r55w failure?

    I've read that these transmissions are prone to failure, but it could be a couple different things. I'm trying to determine what the actual problem is, so I know if it's worth fixing it. The transmission is in an 02 explorer with a 4.6, this is my dads vehicle, so most of this is second hand...

    Check your blower motor resistors!

    Guys, take a couple minutes and check for debris behind your blower motor resisters. I very seriously could have lost my truck to a fire tonight because of the leaves that made their way into the air box. I'd heard similar stories, but it really hit home hard tonight! :shok:

    Rear Windshield Interchange

    Can anybody definitively confirm what rear windshields fit what? I have an 87 supercab and would like to install the 03ish style slider window. I've read that theyre both bolt-in (not grommet fit like the early standard cabs) but according to the interchange database the local junkyards use...

    Shop heaters - what ya got?

    Sick and tired of the kerosene salamanders. Stinky, noisy, hauling cans of fuel... So I'm thinking about one of those 220v electric heaters that hang from the ceiling. Price is supposed to be comparable to kerosene for the same amount of heat. It'll be up out if the way, no more fuel cans. Then...

    Need carb help for an old sled

    Alright, so i got a 1978 Polaris Apollo 340 in partial trade for some old junk i had. He said it didnt run, had been sitting a couple years. I pulled the cord, it feels like it had decent compression. Started looking at fuel lines, and that's where (at least part of) the problem was. The fuel...

    Pinion angle

    I'm getting ready to swap an explorer axle onto my truck. I got it up on stands and realised things aren't quite what I thought they should be. My pinion on my current axle is pointed up quite a bit more than I thought it would have been. I've got 4" lift leaves and no stock block. The springs...

    I've got a friend that just bought a '96 escort with the F-4EAT automatic. The previous owner sold it because of the trans issues. I don't believe it's in need of any hard parts, but beyond that, i have no idea how this thing works or how to diagnose. It starts out in 1st but wont even try to...
