The motor mounts should be enough for the engine alone.
ON the same note ... i have been beating my head over the new track times, poor, only mustarded a 15.2 with all the new added stuff, where as i was at 15.4 with npi engine. I just thought of something stupid i did. I was changing the tail housing gasket and wanted to support the tranny... WELL i first put the jack on the pan, :zraped: , it started to bend some to i found a new spot on the bell housing. Well i decided since i had the cats down and out of the way ... y not delete the 3rd cat. Well put it all back together and it just didnt feel right. I had totally forgotten aobut the pan/jack combo til a few mins ago. I was sure i hadnt gotten used to the new acceleration this quickly or that the deletion of the 3rd cat made a difference to the neg. I was thinking maybe this thing gonna crap out on me soon.
SOOOOO.... my question is ... with a restricted flow of fluid. What kind of damage can be done to my tranny ... I light accel it feels good ... anything over 50% feels like it bogging down ... so i guessing it can meet the flow requirements for at least light duty til i get all my research and parts for jmod. Im hoping that if my magnet is clean, i had did the torgue convertor upgrade and full fluid flush 3 weeks b4, i should be safe.?
no I didn't get a speedcal....KD said with the 3.27 a purple gear is all I need. Well the trans is out...the only casualty was the MLPS. I bought a trans jack adapter for my floor jack. Any suggestions on the best method to flush the lines? I have a new rad and cooler. Aaron I think I will take you up on your offer when it comes time to reinstall
Yes there are other threads on the subject, but I haven't found one that addresses both at the same time.
I have a 1996 Mark VIII.
It is tuned with Quarterhorse and has dual cat back exhaust which has made a difference up top/on the highway for sure.
Around town though, it is still...
Not sure if any of you have seen this, but this would make the rear hub swap much more affordable. I was going to re-drill my purchased hubs, but @99.95, I'd rather have new with zinc coating.
Maybe I'm just dreaming here, but that's why I'm asking. I've been driving my dad's '99 Explorer for the last few days and I really love it, specifically the tranny. The five-speed auto does a great job of keeping the SOHC 4.0L V6 in it's powerband, and it is sweet to get on it and a shift only...
I was wondering who uses overdrive (O/D) when driving around town (speeds under 55). I am always flipping the O/D button depending where I am driving. Does it cause wear to the trans. if the O/D is disabled for extended times. At constant highway speeds I always enable the O/D.
When accelerating then letting off the accelerate Im getting a slight clunking from the rear of my car, it's mostly when the car is cold, sounds like something is knocking back and forth in the trunk area, haven't got a chance to get her on a lift yet. Not sure if this is a problem people run...
