Subject: FTE 61-79 - "Environmental Impact Fee"

I was charged a "heavy metal disposal fee" and a "envirimental impact fee."
What in the world are these? Anybody know? It looks to me like just another
tax.

Jon.
Sometime in the not too distant past there were some deliberately stupid
people. They would simply dump their process waste as they wanted to. They
did it even after they had been educated how to dispose of it correctly.
Because they did everybody now has to pay increased costs, or fees to
dispose of the waist correctly.
Many of the substances in an engine are considered HazMat and so special
processes must be used to dispose of them, this increases my costs.
Personally I don't mind the extra costs as it is my small contribution to
keeping where I live clean. I simply ran at a lower profit margin then some
of my competitors did.
When Big Brother came buy and told me "You have to do X, Y, Z". I and others
I know put it on the invoice as a line Item.
As time goes buy the costs continue to increase in waist disposal.
Others that I have talked to and I agree at this point; rather then raise
prices to cover the cost and not tell you why, it would be more beneficial
to break out this cost and list it separately.
There is another reason for it, if I list it; it may help keep the Greeneyz
and Big Brother from interfering in my small business any more then they
already do.
Is it a tax?
Not in my case as it simply covers the costs that are now "required". But in
other areas there may in fact be a "Tax".
I don't know if this will help you or not but that is the reason that you
see it on my invoices.

SNIP
I think you need to hook up, or check the ground lead.

Bill Adams (sort of about half a double E)

Actually it was. There is a method of generating a + or - DC voltage off of
a 110VAC 60Hz supply that when viewed on a scope will show a full 60 wave.
When you've never seed this before and it is 3 AM and the machine down time
is running over $1k/Hr. it can scare the >>
Double E that designed the electronics and wake him up and catch an ear full
for telling him about a normal situation. Man did I feel dumb! and there are
a whole bunch that agree! But I did fix the machine!

I don't mean to sound stupid, but I must be missing something here.
True
D.C.(Direct Current) will not have a sine wave. The way to make D.C.
from
A.C.(Alternating Current) is by using recitfiers. If one were to find a
sine
wave coming out of a supposed D.C. power supply, the rectifiers one or
more
diodes in the rectifier bridge would have to have failed.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Y-Block FE Swap

I used to have a 62 F-100 4x4 with a 390.The swap was done before I
got it so I'm not sure how it was done.It had a home made L shaped
center
mount that bolted through the timing cover & into the stock mount.The
transmission mount set-up looked stock. Not sure what bellhousing was
used but it had a 12" clutch.The front mount set-up sounds a little
shakey
but it took a LOT of abuse . Wish I could be of more help on the
bellhousing.
