Subject: Hello Again List

Just wanted to drop a line saying hello to all of you.  Its been about 6
months since i was subscribed to this list, I have been on and off the last
few years.  Its good to be back and see many familiar names on the list.
Sad part is most of my projects are gone and the only thing I have left is my
'77 Explorer some of you may remember started right up after sitting outdoors
for 12 years.   Just an update, Its still kickin', driven daily after not
being touched for 12 years, the only repairs i have had to do is replace the
fuel pump and starter after almost 12 months.

Certainly didn't offend me.  I may not iunderstand some of it, but I love to learn..
Now I don't care anything about becoming a "rocket Scientist" or anything of
that magnituide, but these electronics lessons are good for me and I hope they
help me understand the new fangled ignition systems a bit better.

More questions related to my engine swap...

If I want a 300 cid engine, I have to specify (during ordering) if it
has smog tubes. Now, I'm familiar with an EGR/PCV etc but how do I
tell if my vehicle has smog tubes in the engine?

The truck is a 1969 and has a 240 cid engine.

Thanks.

I had the same problem, he made a link because some email programs wont
just pick up anything that is www.something.com. you should be going to
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://us.votenow.de/?103760 that should work.

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.unitedengine.net/
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.economyenginesales.com

The first two websites also provide prices. atk_engines is expensive.
unitedengine is at the other end of the price scale.

I agree with ya Dave! All my relatives were dairy farmers in the great white
state of Minnesota. Every summer I can remember, I'd be hauled out to my
uncles farm in the old Ford P/U (by then the '73 F100 I inheratted) to sling
square bails into the loft and "pole" shed. Gave me a well founded
apprecieation for the life of a farmer and quickly concluded that it wasnt
for me (somthing about a vacation somtime within 40 yrs appeals to me). Now
if only I could've convinced him to drive Fords, but at least it was Dodges &
Chryslers, not chebbies.

Vacations are highly over rated ... you go somewhere you can not
afford to , kids drive you nuts the whole time and your wife gets you
lost because she can not read a roadmap as you're hurtling down the road
....

rather stay home and work on the Beige Beast

Take a week and go to Pigeon Forge during the F Series Grand Nationals and
you will have a different perspective.  Until a couple of years ago I had
not had a "Real" vacation either, stayed home and worked on the house or
truck etc.. but once I tried it I'm hooked.  There may be other things to do
on vacation but PF happens to be a few hours away from two of my kids and
smack in the middle of the Smokey mountains which is some really beautiful
country, Purdy as Wyoming in my book :-)  Last year we spent a week there
and ran out of time to see what we wanted to see.

I'm a very practical person.....Who wants to pay someone else for something
you can't carry home and play with or at least look at (motel rooms, phone
bills etc....)???  BUT, I met people and had experiences I will have in my
memory the rest of my life because I "Wasted" $1500 or so on a Vacation :-)
(Much of that was unecessary purchases made by my wife but she enjoyed
herself so I guess it was worth it :-))  BTW, you do know that purchases men
make are always "Necessary" purchases but women don't have the same
practical sense, right?  I mean If I come home with a truck full of sheet
metal parts for a 48 Ford F-6, a few wheels and a couple of odd cylinder
heads we know I will have a perfectly sound use for them sometime down the
road but what are we going to do with "Pouting Dolls" or Ceramic Figurines
or phone calls to the kids or clothes we can just as well buy at home, or
Lemonade drink cups we will eventually throw away.... Huh???
