Naw, just OEM replacement 1st gen brake stuff. If I go to upgrade I'll get Mazda 6 or Speed 6 stuff. Speed 6 brakes should fit behind my wheels. I'll get some updated pics now that more of it has been going back together.

The engine in my Probe has had a nasty lifter tap for a bunch of years now, and I finally have had the time and energy and parts and all that to dig into it. Follow me on a journey into the Ford Vulcan V6, will you?

Jacked up, coolant draining, getting ready for the surgery


Deep into disassembly


Stacks of parts -



All the lifters and rods out and cataloged -


New lifters in, assembly lube all about -


Going back together -


Aaaaaand done -

I did find the culprit lifter while I was in there, too.

11 of the 12 lifters looked like this one. round, clean wear pattern on the bottom, no leaks out the top.




NOW! The exhaust lifter for the #3 cylinder looked a little different. It was clearly stuck in one direction, all the wear was in a straight line. It was leaking oil out the top, and it had actually developed the slightest lip on the outside of the shell, putting it slightly out of round.





I also had to deal with some crumbling 30-year-old wiring. This is the control wire for the ignition coil, and it fell apart as I was doing the disassembly. No worries, I took the terminal out of the harness connector, trimmed back the wire, soldered it back together (no pic of that), and shrink-wrapped and taped up the result. Good as new!

So I've got it all back together and the thing still taps like it always did. Time for a compression test to see if I can find a stuck valve or something...
