Mine is at 268,000 Kilometres. Odometer says 128,000... but the P.O. told me that it's 40,000 kms off when I bought it, and it also rolled over on my way home from Carlisle last year.

How come my engine looks very different than the rest? This is the very first in the 1984 Continental Mark VII LSC.
Would you believe 800,000 miles?

Very nice!
Your engine is a CFI (central fuel injection) type, typical for the '84 & '85 Mark VII. In 1986, all models were replaced with the SEFI (sequential electronic fuel injection) engines pictured above yours. Those too, made some evolutionary changes before the demise of the Mark VII in 1992, but for all intents and purposes, they continued to look the same through the end of the production run.

The list of differences between the CFI and SEFI is considerable, so I wont attempt to list them here. Following is a bit of insight as to the general/generic differences: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuel_injection

older pics, circa 1 year ago. Not much changed other than its a bit dirtier

(largish image, not inline for smaller screen users)

Towncar, taken on the same day. The fender lips, wiper cowl area, rad support, and underside of the hood have seen fresh paint since then, and it has a hood pad again. I did toss that noisy electric fan out in favor of a normal clutch fan too. I have plans to make the wiring disaster go away as well.

Thanks Fireshaker, thats pretty funny actually. Because when I posted on this thread I was thinking to myself how muched I liked the look of your car, lol, I guess we have the same style in mind.
An the a/c delete kit I did is fabulous man, it moves the p/s pump up to a perfect level, and your right it gives it a much cleaner look.
I also have no smog pump, I dont know if you do or not, but if you do have that deleted, and get the a/c delete let me know i'll tell you the belt size cause its pain haha.

Very nice there, and very clean.

Why do you have two yellow plug wires though? I like the PS pump mounted high like that, and the fewer parts in the bay. Good work.

I've been away from the boards for a while. It looks like there are some changes. Looks like a manual transmission is under your tunnel. I also remember that you ~once~ had all yellow wires. (Accel?) I see that you relocated your battery and your air suspension pump has disappeared. Did you go to coils? I see that you now have MAF and a bunch of pulleys are missing. (Like the air pump & A/C)

It cleaned up under there pretty nice. 8-)

That's cool, you do what it takes, I've mixed some wires before.

I would suggest that when you get close to your final combination, check out Magnecor plug wires. They are the best, expensive too, but they aren't gimmick wires like Nology. They are simply made better than everything else, and the most likely to actually last the life of the vehicle. I have set on my 98 Mountaineer, hoping to never need to change the lengths, routing again. I think they even come in another color besides red. For that SUV(coil pack ends), they were $125 a set. A normal 302 Mustang set shouldn't be quite that high.
