Accufab's Throttle Position Sensor Cap is designed for use on an Accufab 5.0L 1986-1993 Ford Mustang style throttle body for applications that do not require a throttle position sensor. For example, the cap is used in applications that need to mount multiple throttle bodies to an intake manifold but only one of the throttle bodies needs a TPS. The TPS Cap can be used in lieu of the actual sensor to cover the end of the throttle body shaft. Also, it's CNC machined from billet aluminum and polished to match the throttle body.
Note: The TPS Cap is not designed to fit over the sensor.
Ford 5.0/302 Trivia: The Ford Small Block is a series of automobile V8 engines built by the Ford Motor Company beginning in July 1961. The engine was discontinued in new trucks (F-Series) after 1996, and new SUVs (Explorer) after 2001, but remains available for purchase from Ford Racing and Performance Parts as a crate engine. The "Windsor" designation is an enthusiast designation applied for the family of engines sharing a common basic engine block design (Ford itself never named the engine family). The Windsor designation was adopted to distinguish the 351 cu in (5.8 L) version from the Cleveland 335-family engine that had the same displacement, but a significantly different configuration. The designations of 'Windsor' and 'Cleveland' were derived from the locations of manufacture: Windsor, Ontario and Cleveland, Ohio.
The engine was designed as a successor to the Ford Y-block engine. Production began in 1961 for installation in the 1962 model year Ford Fairlane and Mercury Meteor. Originally produced with a displacement of 221 cu in (3.6 L), it eventually increased to a maximum displacement of 351 cu in (5.8 L), but was most commonly sold with a displacement of 302 cu in/ 5.0 L , with engines of that displacement offered from 1968 until 2000. From the mid-1970s through the 1990s, the Ford Small Block engine was also marinized for use in smaller recreational boats.
For the 1991 model year, Ford began phasing in their new 4.6/5.4 L Modular V8 engine, which was to replace the small-block. In 1996, Ford replaced the 5.0 L (302 cu in) pushrod V8 with the Modular 4.6 L in the Mustang, and in 1997 for F-150, then until 2001 in the Explorer SUV, and until 2002 by Ford Australia in their Falcon and Fairlane cars.
