    2.3L ('02-'11) found oily piston, but not source of oil

    still in the process of swapping a 2.3 Duratec in my 2005. waiting for parts so I decided to pull the head off the tired original engine. 367,500 miles, massive oil consumption, plug #1 oil fouls, only 75 PSI of compression on #1. the other 3 are good. sure enough, #1 is covered with oil. I...

    once again I thank 2 people, maybe a 3rd.

    the first is the engineer that couldn't see the need for future service and placed the O2 sensor to where it obstructs about 1/8" of the space needed for a socket and extension on the upper exhaust manifold to Y pipe nut. I'll call this person half-assed because they did do a decent job placing...

    WD40 in fuel, internet says it's great (not)

    I've seen a couple "stupid headlines" on the internet saying adding WD40 to fuel improves mileage/performance. this is what WD 40 looks like after sitting for a couple months, the wax and other thick stuff settles out. ain't no way I want that in my fuel filters and injectors.

    What's going to happen when: device no longer supported

    having a situation with my laptop and an old printer has given me reason for concern about when these new computer controls everything vehicles get a few years on them. Will they simply drop off the supported list? there are Fords from the early 1900s that still run and drive. will there be any...

    2000 front yolk, did I get it too tight?

    replaced the front pinion seal and crush washer on my 2000. reused the same bearing and the carrier is still in the housing. got a bit carried away on the breaker bar and wound up with 21-22 inch pounds of moving torque driving both the pinion and carrier. is that too much for both? the book...

    school me on air rifles

    I need to deal with some pesky varmints at night without the neighbors getting involved. mostly rats with an occasional opossum. all at less than 30 yards. I already have a couple of break barrels but they are wayyy too noisy and would destroy a night vision scope. of course I want to stay away...

    vent tube front diff 98+ D35-sla

    it's a bit rusty so I decided to remove it for cleaning and whatever. punched it out from the inside, it took a small amount of aluminum with it, thought I stripped the threads. turns out those aren't real threads, instead they are concentric rings, not spiral wound threads. apparently the tube...

    source for D35 SLA C ring ?

    attempting to source new retaining rings/clips for the D35-SLA differential. There is 1 on the driver side inner CV, 2 on the intermediate shaft. Ford # F57Z-3Z498-BB (also AA) is long obsolete and # 82709 from Jeffs Bronco Graveyard is for the outer shafts pre-live hubs, it's too wide. no...

    anybody used pinion depth gauges on D35 SLA?

    going thru the manual getting ready for my 2000 front diff setup. looks like I need a precision tube that bridges the bearing saddles then a gage setup that sets a specific height from the inner pinion bearing. then work with the gap as compared to the +/- mark on the pinion gear. anybody have...
