Question about 1983 Ford Thunderbird
We are putting in a new crank schaft and i ' m looking for a diagram on how to install plus timing instructions.
Are you replaceing the crankshaft as part of a performance rebuild? not necessarily a solution, but i recommend that you have your crank and other rotating assembly parts balanced by your machine shop. it is also critical that you check your clearances or you could damage the rotating assembly parts. i recommend purchasing a chilton's, or haynes manual. these manuals walk you through a teardown and rebuild procedure. my advice is not meant to be insultive to you because i dont know your mechanical skill level, but it would be a shame if your engine seized due to a bent rod/bearing failure because you did not check your clearances. good luck with your install
