    New TC owner building motovan

    Cool, Here they have an OBD 2 scan on cars less than 15 years old. The State also checks for brakes and body rust which is an issue here.

    Cool you must be in a non inspection state. Here they do a scan once a year and that swap would not pass. Love to know where you are going to register it.

    The engine you bought was it guaranteed to run? The long block won't be bad, but I cannot believe you can't find a very good running take out for less, buy passing a lot of work. keep us posted

    If you pull no one plug and bring it up to compression you can see how much the pulley slipped. Make sure the engine does not move when you change the pulley , there is no key in the crank shaft to locate the timing chain. If the engine turns the cam timing will be off.
  6. With you there, did that at the first tire replacement and like the result.

    Can I put off trans rebuild?

    I hope it does not turn into that. I hope the purchase through Auto Zone will help you get the right ending. Keep us posted.
  8. If the gas door is open then the slider will not open! Already tried . As a side note the gas door closes between 55 and 60 MPH .

    First find the starter sol and see if the engine cranks with a jumper switch if it does see if you get a spark. Be very careful about loosing the Crank nut . The crank gear is only held in time by the compression of the nut. This was a good running engine engine right? You definitely need a decent scanner.
  10. TC acting differently than it did before the radiator was changed? Is it different with the New Transmission? Check the temp with a scan tool you may not have any issue. If the TC is air-conditioned turn on the AC and that will put the fans on full time . If they do come on then you most likely do not have an issue.

    This should be a once in the ownership of a vehicle event so do a good job. you should get lots of time and miles out of the re-power. It will happen soon enough !

    Definition of check engine code P2598: Generic (Common for all car manufacturers): Turbocharger (TC) boost control position sensor A. performance problem signal low Find the Turbo position sensor and clean the contacts . If the sensor is a pressure transducer the pressure port could be plugged. We do not have the Diesel version here so no hands on info.

  15. Hey I bet the tech that is doing the trans could put the new radiator in for almost nothing during the job see if they will help you out and install your new radiator?

    front strut

    Good Call. Put the strut in a box and send it to the President of Ford Motor with a note I bet you get some Money.
  18. This is the rear hub assembly on a gen 1 TC it gets replaced as a unit. An easy job . with the drum off the bearing is very easy to check. .

    What is this?

    Where are we in the TC?
  20. Carefully have some one step on the brakes with the drum off {gently very gently } and watch the action of the shoes . See which one moves first , If the effort to move one shoe is more than the other then when they apply you could get noise and a shudder before the pressure on the shoes equalizes. You can check the wheel bearing with the drum off it should not have any wobble and not sound like a dry roller skate . Thanks for the pictures keep the info coming

    I used that post as general pricing information, If you have found a TC spec transmission it will have the correct final drive and be the best match. If you like the TC and you are planning to get lots of service miles out of it 500-800 extra over 6 to 10 years is almost nothing. If the rest of the van is up to the task then the right Trans will provide the best service.

    If you have a preference for the generation 1 vans then how much you spend is dependent on the condition of the body and chassis. Here it is not the mileage but the years of road salt and other agents that determine how long you can keep a car or truck.

    Front end knock

    When you have the noise do you feel it in the steering wheel?

    There are lots of U-Tube videos on the swap, Lots of places rent hoists. To put a head on that engine is no small task in the car. A the mileage a timing chain kit is needed . A good used engine could provide a reasonable outcome. If you have access to a reputable salvage Yard a low mileage engine and transmission might be a very fast way out of your situation.
