Good power, very solid and decent. Fortunately there was enough head left to tap new threads into the socket: I made sure to put in a stainless-steel sleeve with many more than three threads. It still got into more time and dealing with differences to place one where the other was. This would serve to improve engine efficiency through reduced friction and reduce the engine's oil consumption, while also promoting cleaner. I got my second from Rock Auto, hope that it lasts awhile. Yet one will bolt up to the other.
The intake plenum was also situated low between the two cylinder banks to meet the height constraint, thus the alternator traditionally placed low and center was moved to the side of the engine. In the second half of the 1980s, Petersen, now chief executive officer, sought to update Ford's decades-old V8 architectures, challenging Ford senior engineer Jim Clarke to do for Ford's V8s what Jack Telnack did for Ford's vehicle design. It shares nothing but the engine block. The engine's firing order is 1-6-5-10-2-7-3-8-4-9. Just have there issues just like anything mechanical. Ford has serviced the motor ever since. He bought it with just shy of 200k on it, and has since taken it on a couple of road trips while also driving it daily.
It was a gift from my recently deceased grandfather. I am getting 12-13 mpg when driving in town. All in all the modular engine family is one of the best engines ever. It had over 310,000 when I finally parked her. There are lots of quality problems with replacements. I do lots of short distance driving so only have about 225,000 kms on it. The Marauder engine is basically the same as used in the Aviator and Mach 1 but only in the Marauder was it backed by a 4R7xW so you need a Marauder controller.
I love it so far. It only has 500,000 kms on it. Once you get past there fuel delivery, engine management and head flow become issues. As this employee would soon have a periodic need to pull a 4,000 pound trailer, the employee was concerned about damaging his 4. In time, many of these intake manifolds would fail in the area coolant was routed. Six-cylinder derivatives were also explored, though never built.
In time, many of these intake manifolds would fail in the area coolant was routed. And by the way, the early 221, 260, and 289 engines were actually made in cleveland, not windsor. Starting at 200K, I have had a few coil pack issues and recently a plug that quit sparking. The Coyote features all new cylinder heads that have shifted the camshafts outboard, which allowed for a compact roller finger follower setup with remote hydraulic valve lash adjusters and improved raised intake port geometry. It blows through speed bumps with a squeak, crash and laughter by all aboard and fits my bike in the trunk when I pick it up from the Roger Park Metra. All in all a satisfying purchase.
I had the Marquis less than a month when it would be running fine down the road and momentarily it would almost stop, the temp gage would peg out and a warning signal would sound and then immediately start running fine again. Following the Modular V8's debut in the Town Car, engines using the Modular architecture would go on to replace older V8 designs in Ford products, eventually becoming Ford's chief gasoline V8 and V10 architecture. It is an all-, per with an 2300 and showcases numerous technological features, such as dual per cylinder and oil squirters for the piston skirts, not found in other Ford Modular engines of the time. For that matter, what is in a Marauder? Never seen a winter and factory serviced since new. Once he was into a full size, he may as well have stepped up to the 5.
This picture shows a failure along the front of the manifold; various sources will show various locations of failure. Taxi drivers usually beat the hell out of their cars at least in Chicago and the 4. The guy decided to stay with a 4. Though now due to the differences in the Aluminum block to cast iron. Oil is cheap and car notes are not. He was a delivery driver and would often haul loads of around 3000 lbs.
Currently on my fourth 4. Ford did provide replacements as part of the settlement, albeit for a very short period of time. It is still not unusual in this part of the United States to find cars powered by early versions of the 4. My only complaint so far is mileage. Change the oil and filter.
