What happens when you jiggle the key in the ignition while running? Those switches do go bad Start at the beginning

Re: Fuel Injector Question

Years ago, a guy on the firstfives forum,(E12) machined his Ljet manifold to take the Motronic injectors. IIRC he did it himself on a drill press. If not for you, find a small one man band machine shop and have it done. It isn't major surgery

Re: Fuel Injector Question

You don't unless you do some custom machining on the LJet manifolds. Why don't you just switch to a later Motronic manifold? they are cheap and all over the place. Your build is getting to convoluted

Re: What Oil do you Use in your 6'er

I think you had better pay attention to the zinc(zddp) content in the oil. These engines thrive on it. So it is not just a matter of viscosity. Valvoline, BradPenn, Shell Rotella which is Diesel oil etc are some that come to mind. Valvoline is at any Auto Zone type store 15-40 should be good But do ...

Re: Fuel Injector Question

go to five0 motorsports or witch hunter They are the go to guys for injectors and injector rebuilding. Any of the FI Mustang injectors will work but you will get more definitive answers there. You need 3 bar with Motronic 1.1 or 1.3 and you should be high impedance yr

Re: Fuel Injector Question

The early Motronic 1.0 injectors were low impedance So if you have gone to a later ECU you should be running hi impedance injectors. While you are at it, you should run Mustang injectors which use 4 hole pintle caps and give a much better spray pattern. You should also be running `a Motronic fuel ra...

Did the guy who did the machine work machine bevels on the edge of the flap? It won't mate proper if he didn't. Any Motronic TPS should work

Re: High Idle

If temp contro switch is bad it will give a bad reading at the ECU and it will think the engine is cold or partly cold. I am having this problem now because of a short in the loom.

Re: 85 vs 86 injectors

Shouldn't be a difference but the smart play is to go for Mustang injectors which are plug and play Look up Witch Hunter Injectors for more info

Re: sunroof liner

If I understand you correctly, you want to re attach the material to the frame? Just go to Home Depot and get some 3M spray adhesive, spray on both surfaces and when tacky press together. The red dust is the foam on the back of the material deteriorating
