That's great news, thank you!

Finding the wire hanging from above should be much easier than trying to feed it up the pillar from the bottom.
When I get the headliner out I'll see if I can sort...

Hi Guys,

I'm finally looking back into an issue I've had for ages.
All my interior lights randomly turn on and stay on in my '91. The only thing I can do to turn them off is remove the fuse.

With my Wag, the biggest leak by far was from the plastic sheeting inside the doors.
Mine was put on badly so any water that entered the door was directed right over the weatherstripping and onto...

Thanks for posting this guys! Sorry I didn't see it sooner - the Wag is off the road for the winter and I've not been on the forum for a while.

I submitted the story to them in the hope it would be...

Thanks once again for the advice Ristow. How would I go about checking the transmission end play?

Right, I've topped up the transmission fluid.

Whilst out there I decided to have a bit of a play.

I had a look underneath at the flex plate. It all looked healthy and the bolts were tight. I...

Thank you both. I think you might be right - I'm now thinking that I may have been mis-diagnosing this as pinging all along.

I took it for another decent drive yesterday.

Right, this problem is getting even weirder/more irritating.

I played with the heat riser yesterday to see if it made a difference. I set it open when cold and it felt like it would stay there.

I'm pretty confident there are no vacuum leaks. I ruled out fuel issues early on, as this engine is dual-fuel (propane and gas) and it seems to do the same on both fuels.

I've not yet managed to...

Damn, it looks like this isn't solved.
It has been pinging a bit again so I've had a play around.

I've stripped down the distributor and swapped it over to a different limiter slot. It was...

I think I have some news on this. We investigated the timing and found that it was actually set to about 8 at idle, and was at 26 or so at 3500rpm.

Based on this, I think I can safely say that...

How long does it take for pressure to build when first started, and does it make any other noises on startup besides the lifter clatter?

1991 Grand Wagoneer - Exhaust Support Rattle

My '91 has a rattle from the exhaust system against the support at the transmission cross member and I can't figure out how to stop it.

It originally had one bolt. I've added another which stopped...

I've just been for a longer drive - about 40 minutes at varied speeds and 20 minutes at 75mph.

At 75mph, oil pressure stayed at 45psi. After the high speed stretch, idle oil...
