    Extended Travel CV Axle Half Shafts

    Good to know. I believe the precision brand from oreillys is reboxed trakmotive. Hoping they will stock these too or have them available.

    K&N Intake Question (57-2564)

    When I compared intake air temps from my obd reader for the Fipk and stock, I consistently saw 20-40 degrees hotter than the stock one.

    K&N Intake Question (57-2564)

    Could be, I swapped to the stock intake and a new Purolator filter, it's doing fine now. Probably doesn't help it has 240k on it.

    K&N Intake Question (57-2564)

    03 4.0, black tube K&N fipk intake. Tried cleaning it and using less oil on the filter, still messed with it. Cleaned the maf pretty often too.

    K&N Intake Question (57-2564)

    285/75/R16 VS 265/75/R16

    Probably depends on the rim width and backspacing

    Ford Timing Chain Tensioner Cutaway

    Not every tensioner fails, I've compared my original ones and new ones, rear one on mine was weak. Front one was fine, probably why the front guide was in impeccable shape, and the rear guide was broke. They have to keep preload on the guides so they tension the chain and keep chain slap to a...

    Plastic cladding

    I redid my trim with sem trim paint after I drove through some red paint spilled in the road. The attached picture is the stuff I used to do it

    Possible throttle body issue?

    There's an oring in there for each side. I wouldn't sweat it unless it's running funny from it or you find anything actually broken.

    question on timing chain failure

    Never seen the chains do that. My front spring tensioner broke, it ran and drove with a check engine light on.

    4.0L SOHC Metal Reinforced Timing Chain Guides Possible?

    The 03 I have had the updated parts, the front chain was fine, rear was broke to hell as was the spring tensioner on the front.

    Rear usb port-gen1

    I decided to remove the rear audio controls since my receiver isn't compatible and I figured this would be more useful. Spliced into existing wires, used green 5mm leds, a flush mount usb port, and a 3 pin Deutsch plug. The green leds were epoxied in the clear pieces surrounding the control...

    hydroscopic stereeing fluid

    Literally let it run and heat up, shouldnt have any moisture buildup. I added a replaceable filter on my f250 to the return line, seems to help keep crud from recirculating.

    2003 Sport Trac Adrenalin XLT 4x4, 206k miles, broken timing chain for $1,000. Worth it?

    Did something very similar two years ago when I got mine. I've put 30k miles on it since then. Besides some maintenance items, it's needed no large repairs. I paid almost double that, put 1200 in the engine, it's been a good little truck.
