Re-keyed my passenger door lock so I can use the same key for both doors and the ignition. Thank you YouTube! Good videos.

Found a loose hose clamp on my coolant system and tightened it. Topped up the rad and will monitor for a few days to see if I finally found my slow coolant leak.

Cleaning up my 4x4 shifter linkage, but I'm missing a rubber stopper and I can't seem to find it available anywhere.

Sit's here:




I'm almost positive this is an item that's no longer available, so what workarounds exist for this? Otherwise the shifter is floppy.

I don't like how my temperature and oil gauges read so I tested my temperature sending unit and gauge along with the oil pressure sending unit and gauge. Both checked out as working. I guess the readings on my gauges are simply the result of Ford's low quality gauges. :-(

Some day I'll put in aftermarket ones.

I have been having a little fun with my 89. It all started with the intake leaking coolant.
