Pacemaker Extractors for 4.0 I6 - Fitting

Got a set of these and went to fit them to the EB. Had the old engine pipe, cat and manifold off in about 30 minutes. Easy.

Get the Pacemakers PH4499 lined up and start fitting the bolts. Despite supposedly having laser cut flanges etc the damn holes don't all line up. I had to stuff around for ages with bars, blocks of wood, screwdrivers, knuckle jointed sockets and all sorts of gizmos just to get all 12 bolts started.

What a pain. Poor quality in my humble oppinion.

Fitted them along with 2.5 inch brand new cat converter, and cannot feel any difference - waiting for the computer to rethink though.

Pete, Welcome to the Half Dozen world, everyone needs one sometime. LOL :s3 :s3

Have You tried disconnecting the battery to reset computer. Also if your after a 2 1/2 inch cat back i can reccomend you a system that won't droan or resonate but still give the Inline 6 a nice note.

Be interesting to see how much you gain with the pacemakers. I had a look at a set of pace makers yesterday at the exhaust shop and i'm not convinced with them as they don't cater for a heat shield.

Looks like the Herrod HPC jobbies are the go for mine.

I fitted Pacemakers, 2.5 inch cat and then a reducer before running the standard system from there back. I'm after torque for towing so that's all I'm going to do. I don't think any extractors cater for a heat shield.

Next item - fix all the oil leaks - Ford did not do a good job on this topic - engine is leaking oil everywhere!

I did basically the same for towing but went 2.5" all the way - noticed a good improvement around 2500RPM and above - you will have to put a heat shield on particularly around the steering knuckle (bottom one).

You can get a heat shield to fit with extractors, I did it on my EF. It just takes a little bending of the tabs with pliers.
