    98 LSC Misfire After New Plugs and Wires .... SOS

    I think the fuel filter was most likely the culprit, especially if it was the original. Before condemning the catalytic converter, make sure it's not just the heat shield around the converter that's rattling. Very common on Ford products. If you do end up removing the converters, make sure the...

    98 LSC Misfire After New Plugs and Wires .... SOS

    Have you changed the fuel filter? Also if you have access to a fuel pressure gauge I would check fuel pressure when it's acting up. I've seen fuel pumps not flow enough fuel after they get hot.

    97 Mark VIII Stalling and I have no idea why?!?!?

    I would unplug the crank sensor and look at the connector and wiring to it. Put some dielectric grease in the connector. You may have a crank sensor going bad. As it heats up it decides to quit, and cools off and starts again. When it stalls have someone help you and check for spark.

    We just picked up another Mark 98 CE

    Awesome deal there Greg. I wish I had gotten to it first. Can't wait to see it in person.

    Long time guys: Still have a mark. Needs new front struts... what the new hotness?

    Make sure you don't have a bad tire. A slipped belt will cause a lot of front end shake.

    Here's my new Mar VIII

    Looks great Greg. Let me know when you get it here and we will check it out. I'm glad you're getting it. Tinted windows and your wheels off of your 96 will make it look sharp right away.

    Most likely TPS sensor is going bad.

    Any Advice Would Really Be Appreciated

    Hey Kirk, John and you other guys that have built these engines, did you key your cam gears to the cams? I know that Mo has told me before that he key's his to keep them from slipping under boost and high rpm's.

    Wow that does suck John. I'm assuming this was not at high rpm at least.

    Gen1 to Gen 2 front end clip swap

    It's actually very easy. I've done 2, and plan on doing another this summer. You'll need hood, bumper cover, grill, both fenders,header panel, cowl pieces, and inner fender shields from a 1st gen. Probably the biggest hassle is removing and welding the 1st gen hood latch to the 2nd gen. You will...

    Swapping Out Engines / Have some questions.

    Greg, I think I would throw a battery in it and start it first. Obviously you can't run it too long without a belt to turn the water pump, but at least you would can hear it run. The only problem with that is the fuel system is probably varnished up, but I would try anyway.

    Bad Cat

    Yes, the base and lsc are the same manifold and cat. I've never used an aftermarket cat on a Mark VIII, but it would probably be just fine. If you have trouble finding one let me know, as I think I have several laying around at work.

    Will the dash trim from a 93 fit a 95?

    The dash's are different from 93 to 95, but most all of the trim pieces are the same. I'm not understanding which piece you are talking about, but most of the trim is the same.
