Might have a little side job lined up to make about $200 so i might have a little extra $$ at the end of this month to go back to the yard and get some more stuff. I can't wait till this semester is over! I'll be back to making some money again.

Sold the dipstick! lol But on a more serious note, I get paid tomorrow, twice. $200 for a pressure washer job, the regualr job, and then I'm working sat and sun too! May be making some purchases in the near future! I wanna get a motor first, see what all it comes with and what it needs. Gunna try and find something with under 130 on it and for a reasonable price. Anyone ever had something heavy like this shipped? I wanna get an idea of the shipping cost. i was thinking like $175. But thats just a simple guess.

Have you tried to find one locally? Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market is useful

It's $150 if they can ship it to a business address.
(Basically if they don't have to drive into a residential area it will be 150.)
It's like 100 bucks more if they have to drive into a neighborbood.
It would be best if you could set something up where you could meet them somewhere.

Thats where i've been doin all my lookin. Best website ever. But just for ****s and giggles i looked up cheapest price and dude, i can get one with less than 150 on it for $250-$300. Locally there asking $700! I would save sooo much more money just to get it from out of town and get it shipped. And most of them come with a 90 day warranty, I could do a tear down when i get it, if it's messed up, send it back. If not, i got a hell of a deal. And there is 2 businesses that i know of, both of them have forklifts and would do it for me in a heartbeat. So i'm gunna think on it and then make a decision when funds are available. (It is a huge risk to buy it site un seen, but theres not much i could see if i went and looked at one anyways. The truth lies beneath all the casing. lol

The A/C line manifold is one piece including the inlet and outlet hose/pipe. You need the 5.0L Ex part.

The 5.0 Ex cables are longer so you need both. I reused my 2003 4.0 speed control servo with no problems whatsoever.

Well yesterday's yard run was yet anther succcess, had a sweet 5.0 2wd out there. The whole upper intake and valve covers were gone but besides the alternator, everything else i needed was there. So i robbed the ac compressor and throttle cables. Also took an ohc, figured i could sell it to some one here. Now here's some questions,
1. The ac line, Do i have to take the whole condensor or does te line somehow seperate from the condensor?
2. High pressure power steering hose, i got it off at the pump with a crescent wrench b/c i didn't have an 18mm. But how do you remove it from the the Rack. Even if i had a wrench i don't see how i could i get in there.
3. There was v8 taurus right beside the explorer (never knew they offered a v8), and so i know it had electric fans. I want them. Do they fit the exp 5.0 radiator? Does the shroud fit also? If so, what all do i need to take to make them work?

Thanks guys.

1. The a/c lines unbolt from the condenser. Just remove the half inch nut and give em a tug. You will need the radiator and condenser though.

2. I believe I used a 18mm crow's foot line wrench to remove it. Its much easier if you can find a truck where the motor has been removed.

3. No idea.

Not sure what you mean by a/c radiator. The radiator-like thing that's in front of the radiator is the condenser.

You need the radiator and condenser from a 5.0 truck, as the radiator has more capacity and the condenser is attached differently.

Okay well then i'm an idiot. I thought the condensor was the black cylindrical shaped piece. No wander i didnt understand what 1/2" nut you were talking about. What is the black cylinder right by the heater box? and how do you get the a/c line detatched from it, if it's possible?
Sorry for the misunderstanding. lol

Ahh, ok. Thats the dryer. Theres a fitting near it that requires a special tool. Same style tool as the fuel lines.


I prefer this style of the tool:
Wilmar W83131 - Disconnect Tool | O'Reilly Auto Parts

I believe that particular line is a 7/8"

Sweetness! Your the man. I'll go grab one of those tools before i go back out there and hopefully it'll still be there. lol I had another question too, Can i reuse the 4.0 braided fuel line i already have on my truck? I noticed the one for the 302 looked a little diffrerent.

I don't think so. However, there is another one of those style connectors down on the fuel line near the frame in the engine bay. The v8 line will plug in to the truck's fuel system there.

Well actually after looking, it would be cheaper just to take dryer off the explorer. lol
Pull-a-part has it listed for $5 and some change and that tool is about $7 for the 3/8", so im sure the 7/8" is prolly a little more expensive than that.
Would the 5.0 dryer be a direct bolt-on to the mazda? Appeaers that it would be, but you never know.

Not sure if it'll fit or not. I've ended up with a selection of dryers during different swaps, and there are two styles in the explorers. 96-97 explorers use the same style as my 98 ranger. 98 up explorers are different. I have no idea which your truck would have.

If you're that worried about the cost, you can get this version of the tools. They tend to break in my experience, but are good for a few uses.

I'll just get the good tool. It's only a few $$ difference. lol I'm just a cheap *** sometimes.
Speaking of $$, the new total is $130. Thanks for all the help chris. I think after this weekend, if i get all that i want at the junkyard, it'll pretty much be time to quit spending and start saving for a motor and shipping.

Got the tools and removed my A/c line this evening.
I didnt't remove the fuel line because i wan't sure if i need one for a 5.0 explorer or if i can use my stock one.

I need an answer on that.
And also can i use my 4.0 a/c intercooler with the 5.0 setup?
I've never read about having to change either one of those but i could have missed it.
Thanks :)
