I don't even have an SVT and liked reading it. Great illustrations and write up. Honestly

Well tonight...due to the fact that I am on leave and at home with a bench grinder and tools at my convenience I went ahead and tackled the problem that I ignored for the past month. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I had forgotten what the thing drove like before this problem...man it idles smooth again...easier to get going from a stop and now you can FEEL the power again. And Im not sure but im willing to bet my little hour long ghetto rigging session made for an assebly that is stronger than it was before (WTF was going through fords minds anyways when they made that piece plastic?).

Oh and to clebrate I ordered a HIA SRI tonight...I cant wait!

Tell you what...im beginning to get more and more comfortable working on my car. Before this car the only thing that I had worked on was a 79 El Camino...yeah just a LIL bit of difference there. Lets just hope that I wont have to work on it that much in the near future!

That is about 99% the same thing I did to mine, It works great,

I used a machine screw instead of a wood screw and I filled the hole with epoxy before screwing in the new stud to add a little extra strength.

Nice pics BTW.

Yes, thanks for that idea...your post is where I got this mod from. I couldnt find it to give proper credit to you, sorry...just wanted to add pics, since no one had any anywhere. But this works awesome and I swear its stronger than the original piece.

Mind you, I got a new part and they are still plastic...so I am leaving this in and am considering moddin' the new part as well.

Thanks for the recognition, I actually just assumed that someone else came up with the same idea.

Mine has been in for about 4-5 months now with no sign of failure, I am quite sure that this mod is far stronger than the oem part.
