Hi everyone!

I decided to post some pics of my LTD. There are the first post related to it:

My presentation:

My first issue (axle saft broken)

My first accident

So, it's a 1978 LTD SW, with the 400 cid. Matching numbers.

It totalize more than 400.000 kms. The engines runs great but I heard a knocking sound. I think one of the rods is going to fail me soon, but the sound does'nt get worst, so I continue to use it with high-viscosity oil.

I already order a new 6.6L engine at rockauto. I should receive it by september.

There will be a lots of work this winter: replace engine, reinstall an AC, and convert it to bioethanol injection.

Globally speaking it runs great. The interior is correct, not too damaged, for a 40-yrs old "big guy".

It's hard to imagine a big wagon like that in the French countryside. I don't think it would fit in Paris.

Thanks guys ;)

I am looking for the chrome trim around the wheels. I'm not sure what's the english for it.

Chrome Wheel arch?

Can I find that on ebay?

I'm also looking for the 3rd Row seats, where can I find them?

Not sure I understand the question. There is one camshaft for that engine and is under the lifters.
The cylinder heads, push rods and lifters will fit any position. But once the engine is started, do not change the position of those parts later.
