Hi guys, as some may have read i have bought a NC with a 5.0 that i am fixing up.

i just have a few questions:

- my car dosnt have the diagnostic port under the fuse box, i read that the port is located next to the brake booster in the looms there. which one is it and how do i put it into the diagnostic mode?

- where are the timing marks located on the 5.0s?

- also where can i find the engine number on these motors?

- also i want to replace the sump plug, are these 1/2" UNF?

- one of the torque screws that hold the bbq plate on is buggered, what size atre the thread on these?

Cheers all and thanks for your help

remove the bbq plate to allow airflow over the motor

Engine number: R/H rear of block, under the cylinder head.

Sounds like a Series1? it'll be near the brake booster, should be a 6pin plug or so, like 4 along the bottom, and 2 ontop IIRC.

There all imperal so more than likely, but alot of these have f**k sump plugs in them for some reason :?

BBQ plate?? engine cover you mean? leave it off, wieght reduction



Too many cars atm
