Stupid crazy shit Ford Explorer

12 April 2017 - 11:34 AM

I picked up a 98 Ford Explorer that's been parked for years do to the owner getting a crazy high quote for a leaking rear axle bearing.

 

Bought for $250 

Clean Title

Lost keys

Will need axle saver bearing at best or axle and bearing at worst (I hope)

 

Trying to be in it for under $500 dollars to use in a $500 car event.

 

So I have no keys and replacement quote for computer clipped keys is over $200.

 

From what I can find without the proper chipped key signaling the computer the engine will turn over and fire the plugs but will not send a signal to the injectors.

 

Clearly the smart thing would be to pay for a proper key but for the sake of doing something crazy, thinking like someone deep in the bowels of the Soviet Union or some third world country, and the sure joy of getting around the computer...

 

What if I remove the butterfly blade from the throttle body leaving the shaft and TPS in place, reduce fuel pressure and mount a carb to the front of the throttle body (Cuting hole in the hood is fine) with the carb linkage synced to the throttle body so closed is closed and WOT is WOT for both?

 

Not asking if this is a good idea because it's clearly not, just asking if it could work and be reasonably drivable for crazy shit points.

If you believe that your race, ethnic group, etc. doesn't get a fair shake from the legal system a small way you can help is to respond if you get a jury summons. I got called this week for jury duty and Monday morning arrived to a room of 250 people that was a sea of white. Both the cases that I went through jury section for the defendants where not white. Sure it shouldn't matter but if I was either of those defendants I'd be hoping a jury of my peers would include some that looked like myself. The County Seattle is in is predominantly white but far from 100%. Wondering if what I was seeing was the norm I asked clerk over seeing the jury pool and they said that getting the non whites to show up for jury duty has been a long time problem.

 

Just saying if your not happy with the legal systems treatment of yourself or others then participate and encourage others to when given a chance.

I went on a Google search and found lots of new aftermarket ones cheap for under $20.

Jegs had free shipping.

At that price you can grab one just for future use. I have one on it's way.
