Running, driving 93 SC with a 95% complete Mark VIII interior swap? It needs maintenance and some repair work done before...
This is an old picture, but is the actual car/dash that I’d like to sell. The dash and door panels are from a 93-95 Lincoln Mark VIII that Jeff Bratton retrofitted to his 89 Thunderbird SC. I helped him on a few things here and there back in the early 2010’s with the swap, but the vast...
I'm not following your description above completely, but basically the PCV system is a loop...vacuum behind the throttle plate is higher than the intake tube, so clean (metered) air will be drawn from the intake tube, through the driver's valve cover, out the passengers valve cover (thru the...
Are you sure that the TB's blade stops are set up properly? Basically, the IAC should be operating at the lower end of its range at idle. The simplest way to check is see if the car will hold an idle (A/C off, in park) with the IAC unplugged. It will probably get close to dying when...
What color sample tube did you use? If I recall, the 89-93 SC's, using a C&L 76mm MAFS would need a purple-coded sample tube for 42# injectors. Also might want to verify your injector size....some of the all-black Lucas ones could get mixed up easily.
Oftentimes, the sway bar endlinks get play in the ball joints on each end. When you jack the car up, the struts will put the end links in a bind and make them feel tight...but at around ride height, the ball(s) will float around in the socket and rattle over bumps, tracks, etc.
I have one with around 55k miles on it in excellent condition that we would like to sell soon. No rust, nice paint, great interior. I believe it spent most of its life in the Seattle, WA area. Let me know if you would like to discuss further.
LOL...top of the list.
I'm planning on it. :)
SC was almost ready for the Midwest Bash, and it's one spot closer in the queue to the garage. Also have a fun little car for a backup: 2005 Focus ZX3
Will make every attempt to make it this year. :)
