Your 2v motor still in the car?
Label all connectors before you un-do them, and that will help you more than anything. Once you know/label/take notes on where everything is/ it's function, etc. You will have a much easier time hooking up that 4v
Get a Ford Service Manual on CD, works for every ford car of the year you get, also has EVTM. This will show you every wire, every connector, a breakdown of almost every system and part on your car, an invaluble resource. I'm not sure of how legal it is, but it's available on Ebay for 10 to 15 bucks, also they can be downloaded online, but i forgot the site, maybe someone else knows? You can also get the paper manuals on ebay but they're a little more pricey.
These are what the Service CD would get you. This is from the 1996 one, just the electrical connectors. I didn't check out the mechanical portion for other things, but this give you a good idea. If they are too small or text isn't readable, PM me and i will get them to you. I was hoping to have a little web space here as a paying member but that isn't the case.
http://www.fordcds.com I don't think people should be selling them either copies or originals, or if they do, that making the images available isn't that big of a deal. I bought two that matched the years of my cars (2000 and 1997) and one for my dads vehicle from someone who worked as a tech or in some form at a dealership.
the swap of a pre 97 mark motor into a 94-95 tbird is easy. The wiring for the mark viii is almost useless. You should only need all the wiring from your vehicle, but you'll need to splice in a few different wiring harnesses, only because the plug is different. You'll want the IMRC's controlled by an MSD (or something similar) RPM activated switch controlled by an MSD (or similar) EDIS sender box plugged into the ignition coil signal wire. Then get a chip. Done.
I have a 95 v8 tbird I recently purchased and I did an engine coolant flush. When I pour in the coolant I can watch it drain out rapidly from the coolant container. I can't seem to find a leak anywhere. Any ideas where it could be leaking? I don't know the configuration of the cooling...
Hi all. I have a 1997 Ford T-Bird with a all stock 4.6l. Since December 2011 when I swapped the plugs I've put approx. 13,000 miles on it. There are no codes and other than the miss it idles and runs great once the speed is above about 40 MPH. It was doing the exact same thing prior to swapping...
I have been chasing a weird cutting out issue on my 95 cougar 4.6
sometimes it will do it under light acceleration but more likely under wot when fully warmed up.
cruising at 25-30 mph if i decide to wot it will shift down to 1st and right before 2 it cuts out and free revs.

Looking for basic steps in rebuilding a top end of a motor. I'm going to use ported pi heads and a camshaft. Looking to make over 275 hp and have a more torque driven power plant. What simple things should I replace or address as I put the new cylinder heads on.
