It curantly has 480,000 miles on it
since ive owned it i have replaced the following.

Enigine - we are curantly on engine #4b (dont ask about the original #4, it doesent count)

Transmission - we are curantly on AOD #3

axle housing - we are curantly on 8.8 #2

Ring & Pinion - we are curantly on rear r&p #3

Fuil injection system - we are curantly on EFI #2, aka Ford Racing Sequintal port Fuel Injection Harness and System

and a whole lot of little stuff

Now lets see if I did everything in my siniture right.

welcome!
That is a lot of engines and trannys!
Did you get the replacements from a local yard? I am interested in prices on the engine(s) so i can compare them to local yards here which charge to much imo; i.e. $550.00 for a 91 van door in less than good condition (dents, rust); a new 2.0 Ford engine goes for $750. here (~60k miles).

Welcome and that is a huge parts list. If you did not say how many miles I would be thinking you tear up parts faster than most.

#2 and #3 where rebuilds.
#3 I boke the crank so it was not rebuildable.
#4 was built by a local machine shop (long story what happened to this one, lets just say water frezez better than antifreze)
It cost right at a grand but had mild cam and some head porting.
#4b cost $500.00 dolors from Advance auto parts. At the time I was an employee and got a one time only 40% discount.
