well when your feeling a little better, then we'll set something up with the club to help you out. Do you have a time line of when you want to get this done?

The duratec like the Zetec and SVT has the PCV going to the intake as well as the valve cover breather , this puddles oil in the intake manifold , I have seen as much as 2 inches of oil in intake manifolds

Have you looked there ?

Did you get your flasher , I am sorry for the delay I am on day 7 with my Wife in the Hospital

Dont you first need to get a new motor?
I know when we looked at it, it was making a lot of valve train noise! (And I mean a lot!!!)
I would first get a good motor in there that might not have any issues to fix then worry about the other stuff!

Best of luck to your wife Tom, hope everything turns out ok.

new motor is in the works, I need to get with ryan and you and get something for the first week of Febuary. cannot do much till then, for now it runs, but like you said, making noise. Still needs tune reguardless. and I will be ready for new motor. Since tune was paid for before the other issues might as well get it done.
