    4.0 ohv engine rebuild

    Pdwight: The gain in power isn't worth switching the motor for but it is there I 5 or something. I think the mileage is why most would/will do it. Senors are just as easy to change as, say, a pcv valve, so it's not a big deal. The reason I chose to do it was because the engine I...

    Best stang forum?

    I'll get pics later this week when I pick up the car. I paid 3k cdn. As far as mods go, there aren't really too many, it's had the door handles shaved and the paint is a deep red with real gold flaked into the paint. It's got a dual exhaust system and sounds amazing, apparently its one of...

    Well folks, I just bought a 5.0L stang, an 89 LX, and I figured you guys could tell me the best forum to goto. I know a lot of you guys either have or want one, so who better to ask?

    4.0 ohv engine rebuild

    I have had some problems, but I think they are all parts that I either messed up from stupidity, clumsiness, or parts that wer worn out to begin with. Stupidity :misoiling my K&N Clumisiness: dropped my MAF And the o2 sensor was bad. I'll know for sure tomorrow if I got it fixed now.

    OHV works better without maf?? help!

    O ya he said he wants to try an MAF off of a 99 (nopt sure how tis would be any better or even work but he says he can make it work even tho it has a dif type of connector and is obd2) Just thought I'd add that in.

    OHV works better without maf?? help!

    Alright the mechanic is havin real problems with this. So I figured the ole faithful board might be able to help me out. As some have seen I swapped in a 98/99 motor, brand new, into my 91. Ran like a top, for 519 kilometres. then stalled once, then again down the road. Then it wouldn't run...

    4.0 ohv engine rebuild

    Change a bunch of sensors overs, I just swapped a crate 1999 ohv into my 1991, wasn't hard, just take your time and lable everything. Hell the hardest part is the exhaust manifolds, torque converter nuts, and the engine to trans bolts. Lining up the engine to the TC is a PITA too. Don't forget...

    Don't take this the wrong way doug, but I love you. This post helped me so much, I was worried about my new motor until I remembered this post. Just wanted a little clarification on this part.

    My engine woes, fixing it right this time.

    Well, as some of you may know I blew a piston in my ohv. So I got a used one out of an aerostar, was supposed to be low mileage, then, one month later, going down the highway, far from home, pop! well there goes that one, same symptoms as the other one (compression in the oil gallery = blown...
