That’s very smart, Kuch. Wish I would have thought of that. Instead I removed the switch altogether and hot wired all the connections inside, which took far longer. I covered up the switch’s hole with a piece of black electrical tape. Works great, but I like your idea much b...

88' tc 5spd. Like the title says.. I have no power or vref signal to any sensors under the hood. Also no fuel pump prime. I was driving home one night and it just took a complete dump on me. I've replaced the ircm, eec, eec relay, ignition switch, and bypassed the inertia s...

I think the cheaper mechanical (bulb in the rad fins with capillary tube running to the controller) fail due to high fan current flowing thru the cheap electrical contacts and burning them up. Thats why I used the controller to activate a 40 A relay. The controller only has to ca...

I had a controller like that one on my 88 Tbird. I liked the adjustability, but it failed me fairly soon after installation. Luckily I noticed the gauge pegging and could turn on the ac to avoid overheating. I then used a set temp controller made by the same company for 4 plus y...

Hey! What is the hub bore size on the snowflake? I have found the wheel is 16x7 +32, but I’m unsure if the offset is correct. Can’t find any info on the hub bore size. Thanks for any info!...

The EVTM (Electrical and Vacuum Troubleshooting Manual is extremely handy for basic troubleshooting. It grouped in subsystems and although it does not contain every bit of every circuit. it's handy. The TCs are included in the manual where there are differences from the other mod...

That wiring and vacuum diagrams book, I have never seen one like that. Could buy it and see what it is, but for $50, I didn't. I have a couple of "electrical and vacuum troubleshooting manuals", but I am sure everybody sees those. Lots of them on ebay. They have the...

I got on ebay last night and found multiple copies of the wiring diagrams. I don't have a set, but I bought a set 30 years ago for the Mark VII, and I really like the original Ford format - big sheets. Winton is really far away from me! My car is low mileage original, so I'm j...

Thanks all! Yes I will be going to vacuum brakes and probably the 93 Cobra setup with 2001 brakes for front and 1998 rear for my 5 lug conversion. Upon reading how many issues people have with those relays really makes me think I need to find some 90s-00's relay boxes out of anot...
