Short answer: i'm fairly ignorant to American V8's.
Thanks for the technical info though, very useful, how long do the auto tensioners last and are they easy to inspect?
I'm pretty much a jap guy, but it's so hard to find a 5-speed here, especially one that's not been molested by a monkey, so, my second 'love' is for the Mustang.
It's just not a car i'd otherwise choose, it's a Ford (had a bad name in England until around the turn of the century) and they still do things the Ford way for the most part.
However, the Mustang is a weakness of mine :blushed:
So the point being, i know what's involved in cam belt changing on your average Prelude or Accord etc. however, despite staring at many Mustang engine bays over the past week, i embarrassingly just assumed what i now believe to be the accessory belt, was the cam belt.
Guess i was just too distracted by the number of engines with empty coolant tanks!!
