    Exhaust system

    Buy the flowmasters you like and take them to your local muffler shop and have them bend you a system. Cost me $150 plus cost of flowmasters to have a system bent. That's coming off GT40P shorty headers which is a tough angle and time consuming, I thought it was pretty reasonable. My .02

    Hood Tach Blues

    Called him a couple days ago, he wasn't sure if I could get it out through the front, thought it might be possible but didn't know. If the tach assembly is secured to the housing with a lock nut, then the housing attached through the hood and held with the other nut I'm screwed, unless I could...

    Hood Tach Blues

    Hope this Bronco family can help me with another problem. Just got my 75 F-100 4X4 back from the body shop, new fenders, cab corners, complete paint job.. They did a nice job but my hood tach isn't working. It's an old Dixco hood tach. Of course they deny any wrongdoing, but it was working...

    tach repair

    Anyone had a tach repaired lately? Other than the "tachman", whose price seemed outrageous, are there any other reliable repair shops for tach work? Thanks, Terry

    I'm running a 5.0 with the P heads. Have the FFRP headers which are P specific headers. A little tight on the passenger side but I had exhaust bent to fit, no problem.

    radio vs. turn signals

    Anyone have problems with turn signals vs. the radio. My turn signals quit working today. Besides not working, when you flip the the turn signal lever the radio (stereo) quits. When the lever is back, like after a turn, the radio comes back on. I haven't started looking yet, just wondered if...

    2000 5.0 Explorer motor - Deal??

    grab it Take it and run, I bought a 97 with 5500 miles (Mountaineer, same thing), sold the upper and lower intake on E-bay for $450. Sold the damper, oil cooler, etc. etc. which lowered the cost of the motor considerably. I went with a carb, FFRP GT40P headers. Still working out some other...

    correct plug gap

    I think the narrow gap would be better as well, it's a totally stock points ignition system with the exception of being dual points. When I looked at the plugs tonight it appears that the burn is uneven across the ceramic tip, half the tip is gray, the other half white.

    correct plug gap

    Guy's at the local shop talked me into Autolite double platinum plugs, I know should have went with just plain old plugs. Since I'm running a points ignition should these be gapped at .32, they recommend a gap of .55, seems awful wide for a basic standard ignition.

    PCV valve

    Dirtmonk, Oh, my idling problem is as follows: Just finished the 5.0 project and had initial startup. Seems to run through the choke cycle (revs pretty high) once off choke it doesn't want to stay idling. I have to "feather" the pedal to keep the RPM's up but once off the gas it stumbles and...

    PCV valve

    The fresh air inlet is on the driver's side valve cover, at the rear. There is just enough clearance under the accelerator rod to fit the hose for the fresh air to air cleaner (5.0 valve cover is raised slightly where the baffle is). I cut the tube flush with the cover and installed a rubber...
