Re: 2007 mustang light conversion

Relays under the bonnet, resistor packs either in the boot or spare wheel well or behind the rear lights.
Additional wiring loom running (usually) along with the interior wiring loom on the LH side.
Will also probably have an aftermarket switch on or under the dash for the rear fog lights.

Re: Pcv valve 68 fastback 390 4b carb

First off I'd buy a new PCV valve and renew the hoses. If the tee is an unrestricted tee piece then don't feed it up to the air cleaner as you will give yourself essentially a massive air leak. If the engine still smokes (presuming the oil is good) then you could fit a remote oil catch-can for the e...

Re: Auto transmition..

The auto trans in the early S197's is NOT sealed for life. It was always meant to be serviced, though Ford didn't make it easy for the home mechanic. There is a special piece of equipment that Ford dealers have to replace the fluid, though it's not that difficult to replace it without the tools (ask...

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

Here on Spannermonkey island I get to see and drive a fair bit of cool stuff. Saturday I was given a brand-spankers new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 (though unfortunately not the ‘Hellcat’ version :( ) to boonie about in for the weekend. It’s a very imposing vehicle. Physically large with huge red Bremb...

If you think about it most air cleaners will see rain/moist air for at least part of the time, and the whole purpose of a CAI is to get more ambient air in. The pops and crackles are moderately concerning thou...
