I'm agreeing with Norm- he seems to know his shiznit!
I went down today to Tug-n-Jerk Auto Wrecking today and pulled a throttle body. When I went to put it on I realized it had water heating lines going through it and mine didn't. I plugged one end and blew through it to make sure it wouldn't be an issue. It wasn't...yet!
I put it on and RPM's were about 2000. Horrible screaming coming from unde the hood. I figured bad seal so I took it off and gooped it up and put it back on. No screams for a minute, them it started again. I felt for the air leak and found a brand new crack. The water line model throttle body is about the size of a water passage wider than the non water passage model. It hits on the EGR and caused a leak, which with more torque became a crack.
It still had the schmitty acceleration at mid throttle. Either it isn't my TPS or that TPS was bad too.
Damn Ford and their 1985/1986 EFI systems. Can't use a code reader on the early years so you just have to start replacing parts.
The shop where I work has a meter so I will bring it in to work on Monday and test it there. I'm sure the shop guys will know how to run the meter and I will know what to looks for now!
Thanx for the input JWharden. Anyone else with any ideas let me know!
NORM! I'm still around, just working a messed up schedule of rotating days off and shifts. I don't know if I am coming or going or if I've already been there!
Didn't you tell me you are in Montana??? With the Snort guys? Allan Lundberg is having a playday this weekend. He has side by side mud pits that are as snarly as snarly can be. DEEP AND MUDDY! He also has a kick bass OB course complete with jumps and cars to drive over. If enough people show he will run one race class complete with trophies- X-Class.
He had an event a few weeks ago and went in the hole about $1500. If enough people show he said he may charge an optional $10 all day entry fee and $1 spectator fee. But not many people around here seem to be into it so it'll be me and him and a few of his buddies. Let me know if you want to go- my phone # is 509-939-9125 and I will be working day shift through Friday.
