Just before I parked my '70 for the winter, I switched my timing over to a
full time vacuum source. It runs much better now!

anyway it checked in right at 5100 lbs with my butt in the seat and 3/4 tank
of gas (or so).  A bit over the

My truck weighs 4,100# with a full tank of gas-exactly what the vin tag
says. My max gross vehicle weight rating as stated on the same vin plate is
4,500#. Doesn't make much sense. With my 200#, I guess I have to pick and
choose my passenger!

Last night I started removing the old rear shocks on the '78 Supercab. What
a pita! It took me 2 1/2 hours to get the passenger side removed and the new
shock back on. I could only get about 1/2 turn on the wrench before I had to
reposition it. I should mention that my truck has a gooseneck hitch, with a
rather beefy support crossmember. The driver's side has even less room
because of the forward tank and the goosneck crossmember.

You wouldn't have any fun here. We got about an inch if snow that's going to
be melted in another couple hours. The temp here is 36 degrees. Gonna head
back out and see if I can get the driver's side shock off....

All,

I also do computer work for a living, so I agree with what Ken is
doing.  Managing a community this size on the public internet is
difficult.  You need to worry about security, stability, ISP's machines,
viruses, spam, technical issues, compatibility, and other things.

Ken, you are doing a great job!  You have one of the smoothest systems I
have every used.  (Not using Microsoft products, eh?  :)

Anyway, on to the point, if you need some virus software, but don't know
what to get, or don't have money for it, go get a copy of Inoculate
Personal Edition from Computer Associates.  It is completely free and
will a good job of keeping the viruses off of your computer.  Here is
the link:

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://antivirus.cai.com/cgi-bin/ipe/connect.cgi

later,

schu

I hope you don't mind this off topic post, but it might help some people
with the virus issue.

Thanks to everyone who suggested possible solutions to the cut-out problem
on my 302 79. I was convinced, as were many others that it was a fuel
problem. Climbed all over it and couldn't find a thing.

A mechanic friend of mine then suggested that it was likely the module, as
was suggested by a couple of FTErs here on the list. Swapped out the
module--got it from NAPA for 80 bucks Canadian and away smoothly I went. I
was surprised because of all the old ford cars and trucks I have had, only
every had one module failure, and it went from running to zero spark in a
blink. Assumed that was the pattern to module failure. The guy at NAPA said
he had a device to check it and he said he has had modules that only failed
in the cold and some that only failed when hot.

thanks again. This is a great list.

On the subject of module failures.  In my emperical experience I have seen 2
module failures that lead me to believe that there are 2 circuits in the
module.  Start and run.  My Dad's 76 failed in such a way that the start
circuit failed.  This is in the ignition module now.  So the starter would
engage and the motor would spin but never fire... until you let go of the
key which engaged the run side of the module.  Engine got spark and if you
timed it right it would start.  We replaced a bunch of stuff chasing that
one (starter key switch, dist pickup, coil etc).

The other one was in an LTD.  The run side failed out on the interstate in
the middle of nowhere.  Here you could start the car but as soon as you let
go of the key it died.  Luckily it was an automatic with a neutral safety
switch.  The driver (a pretty sharp mechanic friend  of mine) put the car in
neutral, started the engine then had me reach over and drop it into drive.
The neutral safety switch cut in and shut off the starter.  We then turned
around and went back home with him holding the key in the start position.

Server is Redhat Linux, 512 meg RAM, PIII 866Mhz.  Uptimes are typically
several months between reboots and then the reboot is because of a major
configuration change. NEVER had a Linux box crash.  This topic, in this
case is entirely appropriate as it helps everyone here to protect their
systems.  This virus is an epidemic among the list members right now
because so many email each other off the list.  The virus has hit me 4
more times since yesterday morning (thank goodness for anti-virus software)
and I'm many of the list members get it as often from others.

The sick thing is that home depot would deliver the load or rent him a truck
for much less than the cost of replacing or repairing his car.

Thank goodness that idiot doesn't have his hands on a good Ford truck.  He'd
find a way to kill it too.

I used an aluminum pump made by Weiand for my 400. I
bought it from Summit Racing. I selected that because
it has a larger shaft and bearing than stock. Don't
waste money on Auto Store brands or remanufactured
crap. The seal will leak on most of those right after
the warranty expires. Or it will start leaking when
you are towing a load across a mountain next July.
