I'll look around the house. I think I have a pair of Gen I IMRC's that I'm not using.
Most likely they are just all gummed up and not operating properly. If you have a one of those Mity-Vac brake bleeders thingies, you can pull a vacuum on the lines going to the pots and see if each one of them is holding vacuum. That will at least eliminate a busted diaphragm. It won’t tell you if the butterflies are opening or not, but at least that will rule out one thing. Then test to see if the IRMC solenoid is operating by pulling vacuum on the inlet side and applying the correct voltage signal to the solenoid (without the EVTM in front of me, I don’t remember if it is a straight 12v solenoid or not) and see if you have vacuum on the outlet side.
I think those things should be able to be tested without having to remove too much stuff.
Just some thoughts on some things you can check without having to pull the intake. But I’ll still bet they are nasty and cruddy.
You can always get it puton the engine diagnostic computer and it should be able to tell you if they are opening or not. Of course this would require you to actually take the Mark to the Stealership instead of redneck, backyard, guestimating...:tongue:
I am looking for a F4SZ-18919-B Antenna Stanchion for a 96-97 Thunderbird. I have looked high and low with no luck. The one on my boyfriend's car had a bad encounter at the car wash. He was able to replace the power antenna but we haven't been able to get the stanchion.
Hello everyone. I need to buy 4.6 motor mount brackets (attach to the motor) for my 97 4.6 tbird. I had my original parts but my genius mechanic lost em. I've searched online and found only one side (right). I've checked all the local junk yards n no luck. The dealership also discontinued this...
Does anyone know if there are any of these out there? I have tried by part number on line with now luck. Or, is there anything that is close enough to fit? I see a lot of offerings for one for a 01-07 Taurus and the pictures look close but pictures can be deceiving. It is for a 1997 Thunderbird...
