Well that's kind of tricky; two very similar parts with minor detail differences. Where did you get the information on the outlet sizes?

Check to see if the fuel pressure regulator has blown its diaphragm. Pull the vacuum line on it to see if there is fuel in it. This is about the only way I can think of that fuel would get into the...

When I first got my van, I didn't realize how poorly the previous owner had maintained it. When driving up a long hill, I can see the temp gauge rise at least 1 bar, then drop to its original...

The 351 Windsor is about 2" wider than a 302 Windsor, so while the heads may bolt on to the block, they will be too far apart for the lower intake manifold to fit.

You can also check by grabbing the...

It's pretty easy to change the intake manifold gaskets on that engine. You just need to drain some coolant and remove all the stuff from above it. The hardest part is to clean off the old gasket,...

The 1987 Aerostar was not available with the 4.0 v6, which is the only engine that used the O-ring seal around the thermostat. So, no, you will not see that O-ring around the thermostat of any...

Just tried to check mine, and I can't say for sure. It's been over a decade since I replaced the thermostat, and I can't remember if there was an actual gasket. But there IS RTV sealant around the...

Please don't; it's really bad for your engine, and really bad for the air that everyone have to breathe.

I would definitely check the fuel pressure at the Schrader valve on the fuel rail. Check it with the vacuum hose removed from the fuel pressure regulator; it should read about 40 psi. Check it with...
