Are you absolutely sure you got all the old bolts out? Do you have your new water pump there so that you can count and verify this by counting the bolt holes? At the very least, you will need a new...

I had to replace the same item on my Mustang a few years ago. I can't figure out what they put into those things to make them so expensive. Even the generic brands, which I don't recommend, are...

Looks good.
I wouldn't put it on my Aero for the simple reason that I live over a mile off the highway on minimum maintenance roads. When it rains, the bottom of the rear axle and the bottom of the...

Getting back on topic, the plastic parts will be from the camshaft gear. Years ago, I remember changing the timing gears on a '79 Lincoln Continental with a 400 engine. The plastic had come off of...

Well, you said you've already tried it, so I guess I may have a wasted post here, but I remember doing something like this YEARS ago by using one from a Ford van.

A couple of things to think about and a few choices:

1. Keeping it stock. If the distributor is shot, you probably just have to buy a new or rebuilt one. Rockauto lists them and they are fairly...

1. A pickup large enough to tow a trailer carrying the Aerostar.
2. A trailer large enough to carry the Aerostar.

Other than that, we have no idea why it is overheating or what...

I got the car when it had 50K miles on it about 20 years ago. It currently has about 70K miles on it. What do I want to do with it is to put the Aussie heads on it, change the timing chain (still the...

Okay, right at about 20 years ago, I bought a set of "Aussie" heads that I wanted to put on my '71 Cougar that has a stock 2V Cleveland. At the time, the so-called experts said it was the head to use...

YEARS AGO, there were a few posts on this site about somebody putting a 302 (or something similar) into an Aerostar. Now I may be wrong, but all V8 engines that I've seen stuffed into an Aerostar had...
