Some good reviews for getting the smell out.
All kinds of diagrams here. I am about a little more than halfway down the page still looking. Any signs of where they may be getting in, like maybe leaves stuck in the hole?
Its going to be difficult for me to determine where they are getting in by looking at diagrams and guessing where they came in,but if you want diagrams of how things go together that is a good website for diagrams.
Thank you Heavy Chevy 396, you have given me a lot of diagrams and info to get started, I rate you A -1 on my scale. You gave me the info, I wish you could give me the skill, I hate all this plastic crap. It's so much easier on my 61 Galaxie Sunliner.
Thanks again for helping a Ford guy.
