Re: Transmission Vibration Database FAQ

I am trying to find out the original specs on the driveshaft angles.I measured a couple cars with good bushings or MC2 diff mounts and saw a three degree down angle on the diff. I have never found a stock car to measure the transmission angle. I measured my T-5 and it sits too low compared to the di...

Re: Another Oil Pan thread.

If you don't use a gasket, the oil pickup might hit the oil pan and impede the flow which Ford designed. I looked one time while building a motor and it is very very close.

Re: Another Oil Pan thread.

i think thats only for the early models.
I don't think so, It's in a late 88 shop manual.There is no difference between the blocks except the one vs three piece oil seal.

Re: Another Oil Pan thread.

You have to remove the rear main cap and RTV the corner/edge where the block and cap meet. That will leak every time if it doesn't have sealer. This step is outlined in the shop manual.

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

My question is, did the block/pan actually change or just the style gasket used, and can I install a multi-piece early pan gasket on my late XR The front seal and the rear main bearing cap are different. The early ones have a groove for the multi piece gasket setup, The later caps are flat and requ...

I doubt it's a bolt on, I've never seen one that bolts on.

Re: mk1 Sierra base model.

Just a tip for you on the rust, they make products like Rust Mort that you can put on now and they stop the rusting, it converts the coating. It's not expensive and it's simple to use and halts the damage where it is and doesn't let it go any further.

Re: Future AutoX/Track day engine rebuild

There you go, drive over to Matt and he will do it for you, lol. The gasket is for a 93 Ranger with a 2.3 motor. Its black with small raised ribs and steel inserts in the bolt holes. It has steel rails along the flat part.

Re: Future AutoX/Track day engine rebuild

That is low mileage for a rebuild. You don't rebuild motors because of a gasket leak. I sold a motor that had 230,000 miles on it and 135 compression that I was running 21 lbs of boost on with a Megasquirt. Leave it alone until you break it. Rebuilding a motor is not a simple,quick or easy thing to ...
