I've only had one dura spark module failure out of many 100's of k miles
with them.  I've grown to think of them as pretty reliable but my one
failure did not interfere with the engine running, it caused a starter run
on condition.  All the other ignition related problems I've had were
consitently due to the stupid black plugs Ford uses to connect the
components.  I now have a very hot soldering iron and lots of black tape
handy to remedy the problem....:-)  Usually I can dope them up with silicone
grease and plug and unplug them a few times and fix it but sometimes the
contacts are just too worn out to salvage.

My brother in Idaho let me know that one of the farmers had a 69 F-100 4x4
that he would part with for $200.  Drove over there yesterday and I was
amazed, other than sitting in 3 feet of snow in a barnyard it looks great (no
body rust very few dings).  Missing tailgate, steel brake line rusted through
going to rear brakes.  The farmer had bought it new and quit driving it 2
years ago when the brake line failed.  It has the 240 6, 4-speed, single
speed transfer case, and 73,452 miles.  Interior looks sound, doors shut
solidly with no slop in the hinges, windows look good.  Anyway, my son
shelled out the $200, and we will go pick it up probably in March when the
snow melts a bit.

You would be correct.  There is a start and a run circuit, that's why there
are two switched leads going to the module.

I had a friend that bought a 78 Jeep Wagoneer (Has Motorcraft module and
2150 carb; I have a Motorcraft 4300 carb on a Jeep Cherokee I still own,)
from me.  It had a blown motor, so we swapped a known good one in.  It
tended to cut off while cruising down the highway after the swap, usually
after 10 minutes or so of driving, and was always accompanied with a huge
backfire when it quit.  Sometimes it could be restarted while driving, and
sometime it had to rest a minute (or 60.)  I suggested a module
replacement, but he made me put on three different carbs, look at the whole
fuel system including removing the tank, and examine the whole wiring
system to see if anything was heating up.  Finally we swapped the module
(around $30) and it ran great ever after.

So what I'm trying to say is that ignition modules can fail in a myriad of
ways, each a little peculiar to the vehicle.

Here's a little test I use to determine whether a problem is a ignition or
fuel problem.  Stumble, jerks, and bucks, then quits - fuel.  Just dies
suddenly - ignition or catastrophic parts failure (broken timing chain for
instance.)

Subject: '78 Bronco bolt-on exhaust (and project update)


Does anyone know of a manufacturer/source for a bolt-on dual exhaust
system for my '78 Bronco?  Its got the stock 351M with stock manifolds and
I'm thinking that if such a thing exists that it'd be easier and less
expensive than getting a custom bent dual system from Midas.  I've seen a
few complete systems that included headers but I'm not sure I want to try
and get the old manifolds off to replace them since it seems likely I'll
break off something in the heads.  I'm thinking of bulding up a 400 for it
eventually since I've got a rebuildable 351M block I got with the F-350 so
maybe it'd be worth it to put in the headers/etc. now and then I won't
have to upgrade it all again later?

Also does anyone know the stock routing for the exhaust system?  I seem to
recall seeing pics at Ox's site or somewhere similar of some exhaust
routing.

I'm almost ready to put my Bronco back on the road.  I've got a few small
things left to take care of and the one large thing being the exhaust.
I've spent the last couple of rather nice weekends getting it ready.
Hopefully I'll have some pics up in the next few days when I get the
chance.  I got my floor pans welded in and used the seam sealer around the
portion of the seems I could get to on top and underneath.  So my floor is
all set.

I've got one other issue that I can't figure out that I'll post a little
later on.

Also I got my '79 F-350 towed to my friends garage last weekend so he can
fix the gas tank, brakes, exhaust, etc. that it needs.  It cost me a ton
of money to get it out of the first shop I took it to and where the
windshield got replaced.  But its got good front glass now and shouldn't
have any leaks around the seals.  Its probably going to cost me another
$800-1000 to get it fixed but I trust this guy to do it right and do it as
inexpensively as possible.  He's got some old trucks too so he knows what
it means to just get them going.  He's going to take care of the gas tank
for less than $100 so I'm happy.  Well hopefully I'll have an inspected
and running F-350 before the end of the week.  WooHoo!

Later,

Subject: Seat mounting nut problem


I promised in my earlier email that I'd email again with my other small
problem.  Well here it is....

I've got a small problem with my one drivers seat mounting nut.  The nut
thats closest to the side and rear of the bronco came loose.  For those
that are not familiar with this scenario, the seats bolt into nuts that
are permanently mounted in the floor from underneath.  This nut came off.
Normally it wouldn't be a problem as I'd just pick up the nut off the
ground and put it back on beneath the body.  :-)  The problem is that this
nut is over top of one of the body support tracks (excuse my lack of
technical terminology here.)  The u-shaped pieces of steel that support
the body structure itself.  If it'd been any of the other three it
would've been fine since they are all plainly visible under the body. :-)


First let me tell you what I've tried.  There is a hole in the u-shaped
track about 4 inches forward of the mounting location.  I managed to push
the nut out that hole so I could clean it up.  I then drilled a 1/2" hole
in the track directly beneath the mounting location.  I was then able to
stick a long alignment tool through the hole and place the nut on top of
it and push it up into the correct location. The problem with this is that
I've still got no way to secure the nut to the floor.  Its one of those
square nuts that sit in a square hole to keep them from spinning.

So next I dropped the nut down a little and tried using some JB Weld to
hold it in place.  The problem I think is that either its too dirty on the
underside of the floor to hold or it was too cold for the JB Weld to cure
properly.  The truck is outside and it only got up to maybe 40 yesterday.
I let it cure for 24 hours before trying it but it still came loose.  I
suppose I could try to have someone weld it in place.  But that would
require driving the truck and I can't get the drivers seat in to drive it
since this nut won't stay put.  :-)  Hmmm.  A catch-22 of sorts...

Does anyone have any other suggestions?  Maybe something obvious that I'm
missing?  :-)

TIA,

Eric Finn (stumped by the easiest problems...)

Because when signing up they don't read the directions:

"However, we do have rules of conduct and we ask you to
read our charter and FAQ before joining. "

The FAQ specifically addresses this issue, under the
"Unacceptable Behavior" heading:

"Do not forward chain mails, WARNING EMAILs, urban legends,
etc. Such postings will result in immediate removal from the
lists."

That posting was both a chain mail and urban legend.

Try a Rivnut.   I got em from my local carquest.  Its a superduty sheetmetal

Hey, I have been lurking out here, with school I don't always have time to
make a post. I saw some of you were talking about ford steering box swaps, I
thought I would add my thoughts. We just did another one this weekend, now I
have done two, both on '71s and they worked great. I used the gear boxes out
of '73-79 bodies, and a pump from the same year. the ford gears bolt right
in. The brackets you will need to get off a donor truck, the gear and pump I
get at work already rebuilt, I work for O'Reilly auto parts. the truck we
didlast night had a 390 and we didn't  have any problems with it fitting.
Like I said it all is bolt up. Once you do it you will wonder way you didn't
do it sooner. Yesterday it took us eight hours start to finish with two
guys,and trust me the guy who goes underneath to bolt in the gear will be
glad to have the other guy there. One warning, the power steering gear is
longer then the old one, you will find your old steering column is a lot
closer then it used to be. Get a shorter one out of a truck with power
steering. Like I said this swap works well,but the decision to do this is up
to you

Eric,

I thought the 351 and 400 blocks were identical so the headers you purchase
should fit either engine.  There's a set of Cyclone headers on ebay if you
want to check it out.  Auction ends around 6:30 tonight.  I don't know the
quality of the metal, but maybe someone else on the list does *hint hint*
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/aw-cgi/ebayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=539202682&
r=0&t=0  Currently at $75.  I don't know of a bolt on manufacturer source
for the bolt on exhaust though...  I made my own out of angles pipe and
various other pieces, cut it all, used the sleeve clamps, came out right
before the rear wheel wells, and it looks pretty cool.  I think I made it
under the $300 mark, but that's for an emission exempt engine with 12" glass
packs *S* (loud!)  Drive down main street setting off just about every car
alarm.

Congrats on getting both trucks road worthy.  See... you thought it might
not happen!  All you needed was a little persistence!  (and money, grr)

the ord nine inch i need to order gears for it but i dont know the ratio for a stock
one and cant find them anywere on the axel like a tag or something i am assuming.
Also I dont know how i manged this one assumined the previeace ower put them in
wrongor something but manged to explode the old ring and pinon i am guessing since
the shaft turns but the wheels dont thought this was a built proof axel guessing not
since a straight six blew the gears up, but like i said i am assuming it was set up
wrong any help would be great thanks

Stock ratios for the 4wd were 3.50 or 4.11.  You might look on the front end
for the original tag.
Or since its already scattered, pull it out and look at the gears
themselves.

Norton Antivirus is very good, and relatively inexpensive; well
worth buying.  I have been running Norton AV 2001 for
Windows NT/2000 since it was released.  The background
protection and update availability is excellent.

The other AV software that I run on Windows 95/98/ME
machines is Trend PC-Cillin.  It too has an excellent background
scan, macro trap, web scan, and update support.

Don't get caught with your back door open.  A good virus scanner
is essential these days.

I tend to agree with Garrett.  While this new policy is a bit
heavy handed, at this time it is probably the best option that
Ken has.  No antivirus is 100% perfect, however, and there
will be that one case in a million that gets through inadvertently.

I've been here since there was only one list.  I wouldn't want to
see a long-time list member get banned because of some jerk
that writes a virus that escapes detection and spreads it around,
but in all fairness, Ken doesn't need 90+ copies of every virus
that subscribers don't take precautions against.

System administration is a demanding and difficult task.
I think that Ken's policy regarding viral attachments should stay
in force until such time that the server can be configured to simply
eradicate all attachments, or something similar, instead of
forwarding them to Ken's personal machine.
Most times, it is a safer bet to take too strong of a stand, and adjust
later than to not take a strong enough stand and get burned.
