Illegally taken catalytic converters are supposedly hot items for scrappers/recyclers.

Yeah, unfortunately Ford discontinued it a few years back. Such a popular engine, I'm guessing parts should be available for years to come.
I replaced the original clutch in it last year at 139,000+ miles. Actually the pressure plate was bad. The clutch disc had about 10% or so of wear remaining before the (rivets) would contact the pressure plate surface. It was all apart so I replaced everything: pilot bushing, TO bearing, transfer case fluid etc.
Now a heater core before winter.
