Right off the top the Ford service interval guide is great. They have a regular service and severe. Use that to stay on top of maintenance. That said I would expect the alternator to last about 100k, and if I had an original intake manifold I would

It would be tough to take off the elbow, knowing you are probably going to see something like this: I thought I had some better images of the intake and EGR also that showed the IAC but I don't.

Definitely O rings. What's the likely issue if the airflow is always at least slightly coming from the vents? It'll still switch between the other modes but it's always blowing a bit from the vents, it's easy enough to close them but I'm losing ple
