    97 Sport 2 door Parking brake cable pics

    Hi all, Can anyone upload a pic(s) of their parking brake cable from the equalizer to the rears so I can match my new ones up? I forgot how they go. Mainly, which rear cable crosses over which. I don't want to be the creepy guy taking pics of the undersides of Explorers in the local grocery...

    97 Sport 5-speed clutch

    It was bought used. Previous owner only stated clutch was new. Was fine 2 years. I know the slave was leaking due to the dripping out of the bell housing. The stop leak took care of that for about 3 or 4 months. What's more likely to go out the master or slave clutch? And would both result in a...

    Fuel Tank Dilemma

    A long overdue update: I thought I was done with this. I put up the new tank, connected everything, would not start. Seems the fuel pump decided to stop working during the old/new tank transfer. Everyone said to buy a new one while the tank was out. I did not listen. I had the "Ain't broke...

    Fuel Tank Dilemma

    So I completed the fuel tank job. It was a real pain to get that support strap bolt started. The rest was easy. I wish I would've gone with the OEM tank. The aftermarket one I purchased is just a big open tank vs. the OEM which has a plastic reservoir inside it that the fuel pump sits into...

    Fuel Tank Dilemma

    Yes. I think you are wise for that suggestion. Might as well do it all new and be done with it. Plus those sending unit bolt heads don't even resemble heads. Lucked out and found a brand new exact fit tank off of ebay for $60 because it had 2 small dents on the bottom so it couldn't be sold...

    Fuel Tank Dilemma

    yeah, right?! Hahaha And yes, Bill, your prediction, that the sensor snaps off like a dry twig came true. Found a place up here that sells southern tanks for $125. The one link for the $104/ tank increased in price to $140 for no reason.:mad: Anyone hear off a replacement tank made out of...

    Fuel Tank Dilemma

    Thanks for the responses guys. It looks unanimous...replace the tank. And yes, the 2-door is a slightly smaller tank size, although I was able to squeeze in a full 20 gallons one time. Maybe there was an option for a 20, or maybe it was just because I was on fumes at the time. :scratch:

    Intermittent "WOOOOO" noise from under hood.

    I have also encountered this the past 2 summers with my truck. I have narrowed the noise down to under/around the air filter. Only happens on hot days, and it drones on louder during idle, and seems to lessen and then stop when driving. I am curious to see what it might be. Air filter and air...

    Fuel Tank Dilemma

    So I dropped the fuel tank for easier access to the rear brake and evap line and this happened: Any suggestions/ideas? I don't want to buy an entire fuel tank simply because this rusted/broke off, It's just the fuel filler line/nipple.

    1997 Evap canister lines

    Hello all, This is my first post on this site. I need some help. Both metal lines going between the fuel tank and the evap canister above the spare tire both have just snapped in half like a twig. Can I replace those lines with rubber fuel hose? And what it that long, large line that runs with...
