the job was plagued with problems from the start-it was supposed to be 2-3 weeks,but took twice that long.just lots of little stuff,and delays on getting parts.most jobs go smooth,but every now and then one throws you a curve ball.turned out nice,though.still needs some niggling little details dealt with though-the clutch disengages with the pedal right at the floor,so that needs to be addressed,and it seems to have a stuck thermostat,as the engine starts to heat up after 15 minutes or more of driving.the rad is big enough and there is plenty of airflow.when this much stuff is changed on a truck it seems to be common to have a couple of little bugs to work out once it hits the road.its call part of the job.

found out why this thing wasnt cooling-the rad that came out of the donor car was fairly new,but it turned out it was almost completely plugged.popped the tank off one end and cleared the tubes so now some water can get through,all seems to be good.the clutch problem was solved by adding 1/2" to the relay rod off the pedal.still surges some at cold idle but clears up when warm so i suspect the ecm temp sensor.still goes fast.

thanks redneck.godzuka,the iac is free,this is a map motor.the throttle position sensor seems to be working fine,but when i unplug the temp sensor there is no change in the way it runs.

the motor was out of an 86 lincoln-turns out at some time in the past the efi system was modified from a sequential to a batch fire,this is where tha problems originated.changing it all out for a later system when one is found as this one was hacked pretty bad.until then the truck is running with a carb.
very frustrating.

I think in the truck 5.0 it uses batch fire, and the cars were sequential. '86 lincon, you must have a roller block then? Nice truck, just need to stroke that motor, I dunno a 331 sounds about right.
