  2. Wiper Problems

    LTD
    Here's how it looks on my car. You can see the linkages in the cowl.
  3. Wiper Problems

    LTD
    Yup, just mounted to the firewall on the driver side, exposed in the engine bay, mounted with three bolts along with mounting insulators for each bolt.

    I know I'm resurrecting a thread as a zombie here... But I finally got around to buying a wiper motor. And now I can't get the old motor out. What am I missing?
  5. '87 460 Vacuum Switch

    Ford F-Series | Ford Super Duty | Ford Diesel
    I think that might be good. I realized that I was searching for the wrong part number. It should have been D8TE-9D473-B2A, which has a replacement part number of D8TZ-9D473-A, for which the part in that link, PVS23, is an aftermarket replacement, available for purchase brand new. Thanks for...

    I had taken a photo a few days back but my dumb ass kept forgetting to post it. Looks like the part number is DBTE-9D473-B2A. I haven't had any luck looking it up.
  7. '87 460 Vacuum Switch

    Ford F-Series | Ford Super Duty | Ford Diesel
    Ok, so the weather has finally allowed me to start digging into fixing my truck. I'm replacing the thermostat housing (and thermostat, of course), and there are two ported vaccum switches on it, figure I ought to replace them to eliminate any potential existing vacuum issues (and since they look...

    Just an update. I'm finally able to start ordering parts, but anxiously awaiting a turn in the weather, too. It's going to be quite the job to get done, plus with a few other odds and ends getting handled with this. Seems like as good a time as any to just replace the water pump and fan clutch...
  9. Popping Sound While Accelerating

    LTD
    Guess I've let this sit for a while... I have a battle plan of sorts. I disconnected and capped off some of the vacuum powered emissions parts. It has provided a noticeable improvement. Still not good enough to want to drive down the highway, though. So, once I have some warmer days where I'm...

    Ok, so does this look like an appropriate timing set replacement? https://www.summitracing.com/parts/fms-m-6268-a460/

    And yeah, I'm not too worried about looks. It's beat up looking, but that kind of adds to its charms. Mostly I really want to replace some of the cab mounts, since one has rusted through and the cab leans. Also need to have a new support welded under the bed since one of them rusted away. Makes...

    Yeah, I was planning to just buy whatever parts would match up for the "heavy duty 12 inch" option, and I think I got myself a full matching set with flywheel and clutch kit. Just need enough money to make some purchases. I'll probably order a new timing cover gasket and other related parts...
  13. '87 460 Starter Issues

    Ford F-Series | Ford Super Duty | Ford Diesel
    My issue is mostly that I don't know if the clutch is 11" or 12", regardless of which it is can I just toss the 12" option in, and trying to identify clutch kits and matching flywheels. Haven't actually seen any Motorcraft clutch parts, honestly. Given that I intend to keep this truck around...

    Well, while I spend some time handling the timing chain tenstioners and other stuff on my Marauder, and work on installing some shop lights in the garage, I can try to figure exaxtly what clutch and flywheel components I need. Seems to an eclectic selection of parts indicating either 4-speed...

    Well, nothing is going to get done for a good long while. I installed the new starter and it still wouldn't crank, just hear the starter spin up. Crawled back under, pulled the starter out, took a look... The teeth on the ring gear are chewed up now. I guess they were only able to take so much...

    I did get it pulled, but arrived at the parts store five minutes after they closed. Thought they were open until eight, but they closed at seven. Going to try to stop in on my way to work tomorrow morning.

    Oh, I done scrwed up. I ordered a bracket to mount a GM 1-wire alternator onto a BBF using an electric water pump. I wasn't paying attention, only catching onto it being less than perfect and cheaper since I'm not concerned about appearances right now. I'm guessing that the electric water pump...

    Oh crap... Forgot... I had to have it delivered to that NAPA. I guess I'll be finding out if they can get deliveries on Sundays, or if I'll be waiting to test it out until Monday night.

    Ha! I did manage to find the distrubutor wrench set at a local NAPA. And it wasn't in the bargin bin, either. Tomorrow I'll get the starter swapped. I have to go to a different NAPA to do a warranty exchange, and it wasn't in the same direction I had to go to run some errands.

    Son of a... Damn. Wish I knew those existed. Would have made things so much easier. Might as well still get one (or more) since I know I'll be doing this again.
