I think PAW still lists them.
Your best bet is to watch ebay or
run a wanted ad on mustangii.net.

good luck

Racer Walsh carried them. I have a catalog from them from a few years ago. Might still have them. Hm...check my parts source page, I think their address is listed there:

Another option for "cheap" 2.8 headers would be to find an 86 (and ONLY an 86!) Aerostar with a 2.8. They came from the factory with shorty headers and a serpentine belt on the 2.8, as well as an overdrive auto (although the A4LD is a weak-assed POS, it IS an overdrive tranny)

Actually a A4LD can be quite a good transmission when built right. It really dosen't take much to make it handle a decent V6.

I can take a stab at it for ya...
As a start, add a second (or a larger) tranny cooler. Upgrade to the planetary assembly used in the 4.0 version (Ford cheaped out by only installing half the gears on the 2.8/2.9 version). Add a second (or larger) tranny cooler. Add a shift kit, and add a second (or a larger) tranny cooler. Did I mention that the A4LD could use a second (or a larger) tranny cooler?

Personally, if I decide to build a 2.8 for my T-top, I'll drop a T/K 5-speed into it. Hell, I'd even prefer a C3 to an A4LD. I have an 84 Bronco II with a T/K and a pair of 85 Bronco II's with the A4LD. I've had to replace the A4LD in one of them once, and the other A4LD is on its last legs. I've rebuilt the T/K in my abused trail rig once. The A4LD is fairly insane (cost wise) to rebuild.
