replaced the bad plug wire and added a new coil, runs great again. It does have a slight hesitation off the line, like a miss still, but I think the # plug may have fouled out with the bad wire. I am going to give it a day or two and see f it clears up on its own. If not, new plug soon, and of course it is the HARDEST ONE TO REACH ! GRRRRR

Got the starter, fuel pump, intake, exhaust, and torque converter bolts all taken apart, labeled and bagged. Now i need to get my floor jack and tall stands to get it in the air to pull the motor out.

Beautiful day here in New Jersey, and a balmy 53 degrees.
So the van got a bath this afternoon.
