Intake manifold

If you're replacing with a stock intake it's a pretty straight forward job...drain coolant, disconnect battery, remove belt, remove alternator and bracket to intake manifold, take note of where each spark plug wire goes, twist plug wires 1/4 turn in each direction then pull up being careful not to tear long rubber boots on wires, leave spark plugs in so no dirt or coolant gets into cylinders.remove e.g.r tube from throttle body,disconnect all vacuum lines and all sensor connectors,you have to be careful removing injector connectors because they become brittle and will break very easily, remove bolts for throttle body and remove body,.relieve fuel pressure from fuel rail by putting on a fuel pressure tester and with a relief valve, there's various ways to release fuel pressure, this is safest, then disconnect fuel line from rail (if you don't want to do it that way you can leave fuel line on and remove 4 8 mm bolts for fuel rail and remove rail and fuel injectors all together, take injectors out from intake not fuel rail by pulling on them from bottom of injectors near intake)remove coolant hoses at back passengers side of intake, remove 2 10 mm bolts for thermostat housing, remove T stat...there may be a bracket on the drivers side rear of intake, (remove top 15 mm bolt, and remove ground cable at back side of head, think it's a 13 mm bolt, then remove 15 mm bolt holding the back of bracket, it's gonna be tight back there but doable with wrench) remove the rest of the 10 mm bolts holding the intake manifold on, remove intake...remove intake gaskets taking care not to let any dirt or debris to get into head ports, I usually put a clean rag in each hole, and clean around them then blow out anything that might have fallen into any can look rite down into them to make sure everything is clean.make sure all dirt is off head surface and install new gaskets, they lock into place on heads if installed correct. Put on new intake and hand tighten bolts..these bolts have to be torqued in order..starting from the middle of intake torque bolts to 15-22 lb-ft going in a crossover order (right side, left side, right side in an X pattern from center out)...install all connectors and components in reverse order , fill fluids and check over for any leaks or anything loose...I maverick have missed a few small steps but think im pretty close...this isn't a bad job, but take your time and mark anything you think you might not remember where it goes...good luck..any other questions please contact me..

Put an edelbrock intake, 70mm throttlre body, spacer for intake,36 lb injectors, bigger fuel pump, and 90 mm mass air sensor, exhaust, and some other little bolt ons. After the intake was put on, it would...

Sounds as though the open signal not getting to injectors and they are air locked. Just a guess ,since you did so much at once, it is either spark or gas.exhaust not the trbl. check all wiring assoc to rail.

Why iss my 89 mustang bucking whle driving at 40 to 50 mph

You might need some programming. Could be timing. Timing would cause a problem. I think your cam and crank need to work together, if one was changed, and other wasnt, could have some type of imbalance.

How do I by pass the egr on a 90 2.3 ranger its the one with 8 spark plugs I up headed my header to a ****** header super comp after my stock one cracked theres no hook up for the egr on the manifold ...

The purpose of the EGR is to add a little inert waste exhaust gas back into the intake fuel/air intake charge to cool the combustion. High combustion temperatures cause environmentally challenging oxides of nitrogen to form plus they can burn out the exhaust valves and seats. One way to stop off the EGR is simply to put a metal blanking plate across the ports on the underside of the EGR valve. You can use the gasket as a template to trace the shape. Without EGR you may want to look at running a slightly richer (8 to 10%) mix to keep things running a bit cooler.

Have 85 chevy 350 that needs heads. What years can I use?

you can use any year heads from around 86 and earlier. You can use later model heads 87-Late 90's that are from TBI fuel injection 350's but you will have to change your intake manifold if you want to run a carb, or drill out the four center holes on your old intake and buy a spacer kit off ebay for a few dollars. If you use vortech heads you will need to buy an aftermarket intake. GL

Mustang will not start

You'll have to mark number one position on the side of the distributor. remove the cap and point the rotor to the mark that you just made and stab it into the engine. I may not go in right away, just keep trying.

350 chevy small block

Aftermarket intake, camshaft and either a good set of heads or port/polish what you have. If you go with a cam, go with more adv. duration and duration and .050. I like running a .525 lift, .230 dur. @ .050 and .292 advertised duration. Get a good set of springs and valves. This cam should get your redline around 6200. If you're using this engine on the street, I prefer the Performer RPM with a 1" spacer. This provides plenty of velocity to the heads. If you can find a set of camel hump heads, casting number 041 you'll love those or have your heads ported. I'd run a Edlebrock 1407 carb. with this set up if you're using it on the street. If you're using this engine for strip duty as well, use a single plane intake like a Victor Jr. Professional Products have a nice selection of single plane intakes for a very low price. I've bought one myself and really liked it.
