    2004 Sport Trac 302 V8 Swap Prep

    Sounds good so far! I am picking up a white 2004 sport Trac here pretty soon. I'm planning on doing a 5.0/5 speed swap. I'm still debating on doing a SAS on it or not. My goal is to make a vehicle that is good on and off road so I can go camping/exploring with my kids. I'll be keeping an eye on...

    rugged ridge winches.. in cab controls?

    An update on mine; I ended up installing a wireless winch controller on mine, the local TSC had them for twenty bucks. Since I already had the switch ran into the cab, I left it there and wired the controller to those wires. This keeps the wireless controller in the cab, and out of the elements...

    If the rotor is too thin, it can allow the pad to slide out as well.

    4x4 issues after M5OD swap

    There very well could be, off hand I don't know for sure though. I ran into differences between a 91 and a 92 before while doing an engine swap on one of my old Rangers. Just had to move some pins around in the connector. The easiest way to tell would be to compare the wiring schematics between...

    4x4 issues after M5OD swap

    Maybe there was a difference in the transmission wiring harness'? If they are from different years, the pins could be in the wrong place. Just a random thought.

    can not accelerate past 40

    I would check the fuel pressure under a load first. A plugged fuel filter can cause some very noticeable drivability problems. Clogged catalytic converters can cause the same symptoms. You can check for clogged converters easily with a vacuum gauge.

    Rear end tick

    Agreed ^ Could also be the parking brake shoes, they ride inside the hub of the brake rotor( behind the axle shaft hub/flange). There could be rust build up in there or the shoes could be starting to come apart. Something else to check.
