1997-2000 Ford Engine Miss/Noise at Start-Up On

Download The AERATechnical Committee offers the following information regarding an engine miss or engine noise, at start-up, on 1997-2000 4.6, 5.4 & 6.8LSOHC engines. This condition has been reported during cold ambient temperatures less than 10°F (-12°C). The cause of this condition may be a roller finger follower(s) being dislodged from the valve. This may result in damage to the camshaft, roller finger follower, valve, retainer, etc. Apparently, the clearance created in the lifters, at the locations with the valves remaining open when the engine is shut off, is sufficient enough to allow the dislodgement. Thicker oil during cold ambient temperatures may not allow fully pressurized oil to reach all locations during initial engine start-up. Aprocedure is now available to service this condition. ACTION: Inspect and replace any worn or damaged engine valve components and install a new retaining clip and lash adjuster for service. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.… Read More

Ford Mustang Fuel Injection Conversion

Download These instructions will provide the basic and necessary information to allow a carbureted 302 to be converted to SEFI Fuel Injection. There are several different types of fuel injection conversions available, however, this instruction will concentrate on the High Output, MASS-AIR setups found on the 92-93 Ford Mustangs. There are two main advantages to using this type of setup. The first advantage is that the computer in the MASS-AIR system will automatically compensate for any engine modifications that have been done prior to the installation of the fuel injection system. The second advantage is that fuel is sent to each cylinder individually only during the appropriate firing cycle, meaning that fuel is sent sequentially to each cylinder only when the spark plug is ready to fire. This makes for an extremely efficient firing cycle . SEFI stands for Sequential Electronic Fuel Injection. This system is complex to be sure, therefore, this instruction is going to skip all the technical mumbo-jumbo, and focus on the bare essentials to install this system properly.… Read More

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Due to the extreme torque values of the 460 & 429 Ford V8 engines, it will be mandatory that you install a limit strap or straps to the driver’s side and passenger side engine mount. This limiting strap will prevent the engine from torquing beyond the limits of the rubber vulcanization. The straps should be installed with approximately 1/2″ tension reserve. This will permit the engine to torque up to 1/2″ in the motor mount area without causing any problem to the motor mount itself. Warranty on engine mount separation will be void if the limiting straps are not in place. The replacement of the small Ford V8 and straight 6 cylinder engines have become quite popular in Ford trucks.… Read More
