Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

ST, I haven't read that it is a problem with these cars, but your description reminds me of an experience after rebuilding a 300 CI inline six Ford engine. I was still learning, but had the basics down and experienced similar challenges to what you are describing after getting it back together. I fi...

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

ST,

Have you confirmed engine timing? Most like to run around 10 deg BTDC and that is with the vac line off the distributor advance and plugged. Sounds decent just idling.

Check for vacuum leaks on the myriad of vac lines?

Re: Another radiator fan dilima

What am I missing here?.. Also the bottom hose is hot so the thermostat is opening. Any help is appreciated, it isn't getting hot which is nice . Eyeball, If it runs the fan with the sensor disconnected and isn't running hot, I would have to wonder if your new radiator, etc. is efficient enough to ...

If the EL isn't working at all, I would guess there may be an issue with the shift linkage or mechanism t...

Re: Not a T4 but almost as cool.

Able, I see one of those about 20 miles from me that has been sitting for some time, but looks decent as I drive by. I do believe they would be more difficult for parts and repair. I don't know if they kept the longitudinal engine or went transverse, but they are pretty similar to our rigs. I don't ...
