T-Bird/Cougar Parts & Cars WANTED / Bushing for Kickdown Rod 5.0 CFI
I'm looking for the kickdown rod bushing for a 1984 Tbird 5.0 CFI.  This is a plastic bushing that inserts into the top portion of the metal kickdown rod and then attached to the choke lever of the CFI body.  I ordered a 5-pack of Dorman bushings, but none of them fit.  I checked the major auto parts stores and none of them carry this bushing.  Also, checked Amazon and Ebay, but I can't tell if those bushings are the correct part / correct part number.  Does anyone know the correct Dorman part number of the bushing or would a different type of bushing work? Does anyone know a source for this bushing?  Thanks!...
T-Bird/Cougar Parts & Cars WANTED / Heater Hose Fitting for 5.0 CFI Intake Manifold
Looking for a heater hose fitting that installs into the intake manifold on a 1984 model 5.0 CFI engine.  This fitting can accommodate a heater hose and a coolant temperature sensor.  Seems like this fitting was only included with the OEM intake manifold.  I cannot find a part number for the fitting and new aftermarket fittings are not available.  Any sources out there for a used fitting? Thanks!
Engine Tech / 84 Tbird Fast Idle Issue - Parts Source???
I have a 84 Tbird with a 5.0L CFI engine.  When starting the engine, the fast idle runs too fast - around 3500 rpm.  And most of the time the fast idle varies from fast to way too fast. Also, the automatic fast idle kickdown doesn't work. I've narrowed down the problem to the control diaphragm that connects to the thermostat.  Does anyone know of a parts source for a replacement pulldown control diaphragm for a CFI engine?  Thanks!
T-Bird/Cougar Parts & Cars WANTED / WTB: 84 T-Bird Upper Door Weatherstrip Assembly
Looking for a low cost source for the upper door weatherstrip sections on a 84 T-Bird.  These are the weatherstrip pieces on the door above the vent window.  Looking for new ones at a reasonable price or some decent used weatherstrip pieces.  Shop manual shows part number 20754. Thanks...
Engine Tech / 84 Thunderbird - Original Exhaust System - ler
I need to replace the ler on my 84 Thunderbird 5.0 AT.  It has the original ler with an aftermarket tailpipe welded to the ler.  I want to replace the ler myself, but I don't have any welding or pipe bending equipment.  Looking at the shop manual, it looks like the original ler section had the ler input pipe, ler and tailpipe as one unit.  This portion of the exhaust system was bolted to the output Y-pipe from the catalytic converters.  Does anyone sell an aftermarket ler unit (input pipe, ler, tailpipe) that is a direct replacement for the original ler section?  Or can I obtain two or three separate pieces - input pipe, ler, tailpipe - that I could bolt/connect together to replicate the original section?  I'm just looking for a stock ler section where the pipes can be connected without welding.  Thanks!
