Re: Which radius rod is which?

Rotorwrench, the link to Ford Garage is confusing, because they show a 30/31 on top, and a 32 below. The picture is not really that clear either

Re: Which radius rod is which?

Thanks to you all for your help. I think it is now clear that the left one is the later one, and the one on the right is the earlier one.

Re: Tie rod ends question

Thanks Pluck,
What I was referring to is that the suppliers of new parts seem to ONLY supply the ends with the bolt and grease fitting on the same side, which is a nuisance

Re: Tie rod ends question

That doesn't really explain how the grease fitting got to be on the same side as the bolt, or am I missing something?

Re: Sediment Bowl Nut

Okay folks, easy solution: I stuck the sediment bowl in a wood-faced vice, and used a torque wrench set on 100 ft/lbs, and voila, off it came!

Redmodelt, the car has a coil with a "+" on one side, and a '-" on the other - I'm sure that will do the trick :)
