    SOLD I am posting this for a friend, it's not mine. And not in my posession. I am just helping a friend get it posted. Here's the story: The truck was wrecked, but complete and running. He has the whole engine. The EE X-charger kit did not come with a chip since it had low boost...

    TMH Hardware.....use THESE instead

    I have gone through a few gaskets on my TMH's. I've had the flanges checked for flatness, and they are fine..... Part of the problem with installing them, is how nearly impossible it is to get to some of the bolts, and how long it takes to get them torqued down, due to the routing of the...

    I am in the process of upgrading a few parts on my `92 X (it has a full `97 drivetrain/firewall/dash swap, so this *IS* posted in the right area)...the least of which is the throttlebody....a 75mm Throttlebody. The Factory Elbow is fine, for a 65mm Factory throttle body. But upgradfing and...

    Wanted `98 Shift cable

    A lady I work with has a 98 XLT that won't go all the way into park. The shift cable is broken, and not going all the way into Park. It has to be in neutral to start, and the only thing that holds it in place is the emergency brake. It's not safe right now. She needs a 'new' shift cable...

    Explorer V8 Intake Plaque $50.00 shipped

    I am upgrading a few parts on my X, and this will no longer bolt onto my intake... It is the Early Intake Plaque that says 'Explorer V8'....not the more common '5.0L V8' one that everybody has. It is a fairly rare piece, only used on early production 1996 5.0L's. If you already have an...

    Seat Belt Squeak...

    I searched, and found nothing... The drivers side seat belt is squeaking TERRIBLY at the adjustable shoulder triangle part. It is covered in a black plastic. My previous experience is with 1st Gen's, and they are just chromed. But the friction between the belt/webbing and the plastic is...

    5.0L V8 does not want to start - backfires

    The 1997 V8 in my `92 does not want to start. When it DOES start, after about 2-3 minutes of cranking, it doesn't want to rev. And everytime I try to hit the gas, it pops and back fires on the passenger side....after about 3-4 minutes of idling, warming up, it WILL drive, and have all the power...

    What robs more power from the 5.0L, AWD or Exhaust Manifolds

    I drove my wifes Mountaineer today.....1998 Mounty, AWD.....ALL STOCK other than the Fairbanks Shift Kit..... I was suprised at how slow it is compared to my 2WD, TMH equipped Explorer. Even my old V6/Manual set-up would beat the Mounty. What do you guys think robs more from the engine...

    No more Park

    I was at the Ford Dealer today picking up some Toreador Red Touch Up Paint for my latest project, a 1998 Mountaineer 5.0L/AWD. I got back into my Explorer and started the engine. It died almost immediately, which is weird, because that has NEVER happened. I went to re-start the engine, and...

    1998 Mountaineer Header Panel interchange

    There are 2 different Header Panels for the 1998 for 'Before 6/98' and another 'After 7/98' My Mountaineer was built 3/98. So I know I should the correct one, but they are hard to find. If I can install the easier one to find, the 'After 7/98' panel life would be MUCH...
