There's also a warning on the mats about doing this.

How old are your cap and wires? What brand? Stock air filter and housing?
If your problem only occurs in the rain... I'd be looking at these.

Why are you messing with all of that instead of buying a transmission that bolts right up? :dunno
Is the output shaft the same size as the pilot bearing?

Not easily done when the circuits being built elsewhere have government backing.

I'll probably go check it out though... went to Indy 5 times.
It's simply incredible in person.

No one seems to even want to admit that this car existed. Ford tells me to just go to an autoparts place with a handful of O-rings. Sucks. That's because the thing uses "Euro" metric O-rings that Ford didn't use on any of their other cars. Same with all the hardware. I'd be willing to bet they coul...

I've never had a set stuck either... and they are all the same from Pinto up to the latest 2.3 Ranger. Some day I'll get around to replacing my tappy worn out ones (240k miles).

I was coming to post that you can not bypass the FPR. It'll be fine with the pulse dampner bypassed. Your parts guy must suck. All fpr's are the same base number (9C968.) The dampner has long been discontinued.

That's a good idea. You need a E5ZZ-6A666-A (EV-127-A). MSRP $10.18.
Quit waisting your money on Autozone parts! :lol:

What PCV valve did you get? Yes... that's a sign of the crankcase being pressurized.
Did you read the "for sale" section today? :wink:

My money would be on timing too. Try the timing light on the cam mark, and maybe drill a hole at the #1 position on the cap, and hit that with the timing light too to make sure things are lining up? Will it run better with a lot of timing without detonation?
