Well in the last post I told you one reason to choose the Ford throttle body was to use the nice IACV. I knew going in that the valve would not clear the brake boost in it's normal location. But because the mount point was symmetrical I expected (yes yes I know...never do that) that I could just flip it around.
Welllll once I started testing electronics I found that the valve didn't just move either direction. It needed vacuum on one side to pull it closed. So to the head I went and scratched. Got it...I'll just spin the valve relative to the vacuum port. Thanks to whoever at Ford thought to have one small port (vacuum) and one HUGE opening as it allowed me to do this. A little bit of aluminum, some simple tools, and we would be back in business!!
IACV, upper hole needs vacuum to close then coil pulls it open.
Throttle body....hole is vacuum side, big open area is before blade.
New plate to orient the IACV with vacuum ports together.
IACV installed so that it will hopefully clear everything and WORK!
Yahoo, it clears
TPS wires were close....
