The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

Oh no!!  This is an ABS motor on DRUGS!


There is only one thing that can be done. Spray it with PB Blaster and carefully disassemble...

Did you notice there is no spring holding the brushes tight above?  It was found loose later in the cleaning process...



Now it is apart we can get some bushiness done!

Lets look at the solenoids...


That looks bad.  Lets start with my spare.  We will clean this one up.


Remove the rust using a sand blaster...


Prime.




Paint..

Yes it will...  Right now all that is left to do is bleed the brakes and test!

With that note we need to seriously catch-up with the pictures!    O0

Here is the final rebuilt ABS unit cleaned and painted...



They wanted to work on the accumulator and sticker and I told them NO.  I will take care of that!

Here are the exhaust tips:


New calipers installed and painted RED!  Plust, the bottom of the car was ground and rust proofed three times then finally painted black!









Now all that is left is to bleed, test and drive!

I will take care of the rotors over the winter!
