That's my delimia : positive . 6 bolts on the value cover gaskets,
the car was an early model only eleven # on vin ,
vin #oy90g652037.
Was told to look 4 the ( sp ) an then # , on the door 4 the springs # .
There is no sp but there is a set of numbers
on the top # 0079 maybe the front /makes sence
under is #0033 maybe the back / not sure

i think the part number is one of these I got from a dvd parts list on line:

1) EOAY 5310-E 2) r/b EOAY 5310-C spring code A

1) EOAY 5310-D spring code B
1)EOAY 5310-A 2) r/b EOAY 5310-B spring codeC
1) EOAY 5310-B 2) r/b EOAY 5310-D spring code D ,
ford dealer said last the number he show is 5310 D witch is a sticker D on
the spring can't see one, spring still on car.
Maybe a part from the mercury marquis or the crown victorian.
Hope this helps ty joe

I found that car listed with a 5.8L windsor engine only thing I found so far is the coil spring insulators have been unable to find the springs so far.

I would think if they were the same they would list both engines for that coil spring. Have you tried emailing moog to see what they have to say about the whole mystery?
