Well the Ford's engines time is up. It has been blowing white smoke and loosing Rad water for a while now. A common problem with the early Ford 4.0L motor is when they get over heated the heads crack.

It is now over at Rich's workshop.( funinbc member) We hoped it was just a cracked head gasket but as it turned out it was a cracked head and water has been getting into two of the cylinders!! Not looking pretty. We picked up a used motor thinking we could take the bottom end out of that and buy a new head and put the two together. Turned out the one we brought back to the shop was worse off than mine.
Back it goes. Today we found a 1998 with 66658 km (number of the beast) on the engine and after inspection it looks like new!!

The New....well almost new engine. Ain't it pretty?

Come on Kevin , ballz up. Put a high output 5.0L in it. There is Exploders that come stock with a 5.0litre in them. Now that would be fun.

A 302 would be sweet but this is the easiest on the pocket book. Why the hell do I own two 4x4's they are both sucking money out of me.
