If you can't follow Torque' directions, Maybe Cars are Not for You.
Some very good members here don't do their own wrench work; they pay someone competent, like RobertP.
Which partnumbers you need is Directly driven by what you have or buy.
Ford partnumbers change often, driven by problems on cars later than ours; keeping up with that takes employees, not posters.
Always make a list of what parts you install, because it will
come up in the future.
I have a Logbook that keeps track of all mods to all cars, with dates and partnumbers; that way I don't buy the wrong part to fix something.
c.v. I have an 03 intake on a 96 that has no gasket, it's glued on with RTV.
Works great; the head has deep pits in the gasket surface...buying a gasket for that car and thinking it will be an easy fix is a ruined afternoon, lol.
As far as a better thread, keep in mind We can't and won't spoon feed; that sets a bad precedent.
Linking to the previous posts is a way of giving credit to the guys that pioneered it here.
I suggest making friends with the local ford parts counter guy, and get him to find the parts you need; that works for me.
