    So my A9L is pretty much junk, burnt resistor and blown caps and it already has the typical jumper for the SigRtn repair. I might send it off to the rebuilder in florida from ebay, lots of good reviews from the corral.

    Let us know how it goes. I should really send my A9P off for a cap replacement. I looked at it about 2 years ago and the caps were fine. I'd just like to have them replaced before they leak.

    I drove home an 87 Cougar, parts car, a few years ago with the original engine.

    The car was from an estate of a mechanic.

    The performance of the engine was quite remarkable for the original 302.

    I pulled the ECM and it was stamped Taurus/Sable on the outside.

    Got it in a box somewhere.

    I wonder what's inside ?

    Who would have thought we would have these problems when we were playing with these things 15-20 years ago?
    It's Gumby's fault.

    I didn't think I'd even have the same car for 16 years....

    14 years for me, I bought the SE at the end of 2004 and found you guys in January 2005. I was never a member of the old board. My good friend John (blue84302) is why I ever bought the first car. The SE came from the junkyard and now is back in a junkyard.

    Well I started pulling the car apart inside. The dash is a cracked disaster and the harness is a mess. I never had the dash out of this car but someone else has. The heater box has been glued back together and the harness is a twisted mess. I did find out why my electric temp control was in trouble, one of the motors for one of the blend doors was unplugged. The seats stink and are moldy, the carpet was soaking wet and stinky, I'll take it to the car wash and power wash it.

    Does anyone have a dual power seat harness they want to sell? I believe I have a passenger power track.

    Years ago when I did the t5 swap on the 88 I found a 5 speed car at the junkyard that had the manual version of this plate. If I can get down to the farm and out to my friends junkyard where the SE is I would like to install that proper plate. If time doesn't allow I will just use this one or maybe someone is parting out a 5 speed car and would like to sell me this hump. Late Model Restoration has a version for the mustang but there hump wasn't bolt in like ours and I fear that it wont fit correctly.
