Then Ford wants you to buy a subassembly that has 20 other parts when all you need is the one, and you have to pay much more than necessary. I thought paying tribute died in the middle ages. Company not endearing itself to young hearts and minds there at all.

That gave me a great laugh
But soo true.
Update from dealer:
Service advisor received a letter from Ford corp "engineer". Letter "email" states no reverse is from motor swap install. Ford engineer recommends putting original motor back in.
