    '94 302/4R70W/BW1354 Upgrade

    Well since my last post, I haven't been on here too much (if u already haven't noticed), but recent, I got promoted to a new position at my job which requires me to go back to school to get an EE degree. So since last fall semester, I've been attending University of Hawaii at Manoa, as a full...

    Cleaning Upper and Lower Intake

    Wow! I would've thought the same about the oven cleaners. Its a good thing I didn't try it out before I read your post. Hmmm...maybe the safest thing to do is just leave the gunk in there? At least it'll be all intact instead of in a whole bunch of little gunk pieces just waiting to get...

    Cleaning Upper and Lower Intake

    Does the above method work well enough for the upper intake so that nothing gets sucked back into the engine? I was originally thinking of just blasting as much of the insides as I can with a carb cleaner. But after thinking about it more, I may cause more harm by having an accumilation build...

    Does anyone know if the valve covers for non-efi 302 broncos that have "Bronco Powered by Ford" will fit with the 1" intake spacer installed? Looking to change out my stock valve covers with something better! The Ford Racing website only have "Cobra", "Ford Racing", and "Mustang".

    lol, yah I was expecting the roundy holes but when I pulled it out of the box, I saw squarey holes! And you know what, I noticed that the holes were squared on the summit website but I thought it was one of those "picture does not represent actual product" kinda pictures. Are the E3 plugs...

    You ordered the correct one for our intakes (cobra). I learned I had ordered the wrong one after I had already received it. Oh well, lesson learned!

    1" Heat Spacer Install- 5.0 GT-40 ( Upper Plennum Removal and Replacement)

    Mods, You think it might be helpful to add the correct p/n somewhere on the first page? Just as a helpful tool for future people wanting to install this spacer but don't want to read all the threads to page 4. I know posts 5,6 and 7 talks about the bolt lengths and i think around posts 11 & 12...

    1" Heat Spacer Install- 5.0 GT-40 ( Upper Plennum Removal and Replacement)

    OK, so tfs....018 is the p/n I need to order. On summit's site, it says its for a cobra, does that mean we have cobra intakes??? why don't the 96 tfs....04 work even though it says for a 96? I called summit and spoke to a rep there, and he didn't know what was going on with the part numbers...

    Ford 9 inch pinion bearing removal

    Oh , I forgot to add that the noise is mostly heard when in coast and not drive. Usually more when going down hill versus going uphill. Basically when no load is on the gears

    Ford 9 inch pinion bearing removal

    Does anybody know if I can change out the pinion bearings without having to remove the whole 3rd member and just remove the pinion retainer? I have a sound coming from the 3rd member that sounds like the pinion bearings are rolling around in there. Kinda like the metal scratchy noise of...

    i was reviewing some of the CPS threads, I may need to research it a little more before I try to tackle it. Don't know very much about engine work so I don't want to screw something up! I'll also look more into the priming of the oil pump and drive procedure. Sounds like it should be...

    5.0 Intake manifold spacer PROBLEM

    Any updates? Following this thread since I am doing similar work on my V8 swap. Engine looking nice and clean. You did any work on your engine? What made you paint your block black? I like the look but just wonder if its hard to see leaks. Or maybe thats the point.

    How much of a pain is it to remove the timing chain cover and remove the stud that way, replace the gasket and button everything back up with a new set of studs and bolts?

    I agree! I need/want to get that sucker out and replace it. All of them! Been doing that and its wearing the stud down..wondering how tight becomes the point of no return to where there won't be that half inch sticking out anymore. no threads, only stud remaining. The stud broke just...
