Thanks for your message at 11:27 AM 11/5/99 -0800, rich may. Your message was:

Between the engine and the transmission, where the clutch would be in a
manual shift.
It will look like a large pregnant donut with only a small hole in the
middle. It will be full of transmission fluid...or is this a trick question?

Welcome to the list James: You write: >>Next, there is a
button that is mounted under the dash under the headlight switch that is
green and says "Gear Vendor O/D." What the heck is it?? It doesn't seem to
do anything when i push it. It is lighted and has two positions, in and
out!!

Gear Vendors is a California based aftermarket supplier of
Underdrives/Overdrives. They have some very Pricey stuff. Haven't a clue as to
the reliability of the units, but looking under your vehicle, you should be able
to spot the unit somewhere in the driveline. I am always interested in more
gears(I like to have my cake and eat it also). If in fact you do have a Gear
Vendors Overdrive in your vehicle, I would be very interested in it.

See guys --- Someone else agrees with me that dually(or is that duallie - I
really don't care) and dual rear wheel, rearends are not the same width....
The single rear wheel F350's and the dual wheel F350's and the dually F350's
carry different width rears(measured backing plate to backing plate). I am led
to believe that the E series (E350) with duals and the dually F350 carry the
same width rear.

It's the old argument between principle and practicality. I say if the
jerk is deliberately tail-gaiting you, let him go thru the windshield.

Nope ... just automatic transmissions that are
expected to work have them.

Technically, by placing a voltmeter to measure potential, you are creating
a circuit.

This summer I was pulling my 22 ft travel trailer up a looong grade on
I-5 in southern Oregon.The 460 in my 84 was purring up the grade about
50 mph.My 84 is stock w/4.10 rear t-19 combo and I'm pleaed with it's
towing ability.
A guy with a new Super Duty Power Stroke passed me at about 65 mph.The
amazing part was that he was towing a 3 axle flat bed about 40 ft long
with about a 35 ft 5th wheel travel trailer on it.
He was passing Cummins powered Do*ges with just 1 trailer,empty semis,
giys towing small boats,little riceburner sedans you name it.I was
impressed to say the least.
I feel the Power Stroke was built for what you want to do.We can go
back and for on the merits of a diesil in other applications,but for
long hauls with a heavy load it is hard to beat a diesil.
