Re: Something new to work on

From best guesses from the owner, it hadn't moved since 1990~1991. Given that it has bias ply tires on the rear end from starfire, I would buy that.

Re: uncranked t-bars

When is the noise occuring? How fast, road conditions, loaded down or empty, when turning the wheel, etc etc. The more info you give the better we can diagnose.

Re: Camshaft question

TRS tech library doesnt really do much for the OHC guys. The 422 cam is a OHV cam. You can go to summit and they will usually filter out the parts you cant use.

Re: 4.0 sohc roller rockers???

I'm almost 100% sure that your engine does /not/ have rocker arms. The 2000 4.0 does.
