For a donor column look at a Crown Vic or similar. Pretty much the same, but the cars were lower to the ground, so the steering column wasn't used as a handle. ;) Less wear and tear on them

The Aerostar floor pockets for the seat were all the same. Over the years I had a 2-person bench, 3 person bench, the 3 person into bed bench, and a pair of captain's chairs for the middle row. For...

The 300 didn't get EFI until 1987. 302s had EFI in 85, I want to say.

It would be a lot of work to retrofit everything into the 86.

How wrecked is the 92? The front clip of the 86 should...

Check the MLPS switch. It is on the drivers side, and the shift cable hooks to it. If the switch gets worn, it can cause rough shifting and neutralling, as the computer doesn't know what gear has...

Check fuel pressure. 300s use 55-60 psi in the fuel rail. The higher pressure than a V8 helps avoid vapor lock. The newer 300s don't have a fan for the injectors. A weak fuel pump may not keep up...

I'm using a 5w40 synthetic blend from Blain's Farm and Fleet. Pretty sure it is made by Citgo for F&F. About $26 for a 2 gallon jug. Not sure if it is available elsewhere under a different name. ...

Might as well make sure the cab is still attached to the frame correctly...:eek: Linkages require stability, and if the cab has shifted, you'll have issues,

I was partial to a Wilson 1000 magnet mount on the cab roof. Better ground plane, so you will transmit and receive better, and not be as directional as other mounting locations. Antenna quality is...

When I replaced the radiator in my truck, I was plagued with ATF leaks until I used a little bit of the liquid Teflon on the threads. No leaks since. I'm not a fan of the tape, but the liquid stuff...

You might get away with it, but the hyper-eutectic pistons the 96s came with are probably the best available. 96s had MAF, so they can compensate for some changes.

Head over to the straight 6...

How are the motor mounts? Worn mounts could introduce some strange harmonics.

The alternator could have a short in it, or the bearings could be shot. When that happens, the spinny metal bits could make contact with the stationary metal bits in the casing, causing a dead...

Have you checked the wires coming off the alternator? These have the 2G alternator, where all the charge current runs through 2 spade lugs. After a while, the terminals corrode, increasing...
