Subject: FTE 80-96 - installation process

Hi everyone
I was wondering if someone might be able to help me out with a
couple of things. I know this one has been sort of addressed already but i
didn't really get the answer i was after. The answer i did get was great, just
not what i was looking for. I want to find out how to set up the second battery
in an 88 Bronco XLT fullsize. I want to be seperate from the original battery.
I want to run any future toys i install to one battery and then the original
running battery. This way i basically always have a back up if one dies.
If anyone has done this set-up before i would greatly appreciate the input.
Last thing my rear window does not come down. The key does not work and neither
does the switch. I have checked the fuse panel it seems to be fine.
Could the window motor be burnt out? Is there away to get it down manually
without the key or the switch? Any information on these two topics would be
very helpfull. You can send a response on the list or to me directly at:
todd_johnston sony.ca
Thanks in advance
Todd
Big Bronco Bustin

Hello all:

This is a test message to confirm that I have the correct address ( I
think I had a bogus one before).

good decision. They are good for everything from going down the highway to
treturous roads with a trailer.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Oil Level on 6 cyl.

I recently bought a 1990 F-150 2-wheel drive 300 cid in line 6. This
is my first truck,
and have some questions I would like to ask the knowledgeable people
that frequent this
site. The manual states six quarts of oil with filter change. Also do
not overfill. When I
changed oil and filter, and added six quarts, the oil level was way
over the full mark on
the dipstick, which also says do not overfill. Is this common, and am I
overfilling by being
over the full mark? Is this common on Ford trucks with 6 cyl.?
Thank You for your comments. Dale

I add 4 quarts then check level on dipstick, if it's on the full or just
below I fire it up for 30 seconds then shut it off and check again (has to
fill the new oil filter up) then I top it off.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - REPAIR MANUAL 1994 F150

Hello all,

I'm looking for a repair manual for my 1994 ford f150 4x4. I did a
little research and came up with about 3 major types:

1) Helm's Manual for $90
2) Hayne's Manual for about $25
3) Chilton's Manual for about $25
Which manual would you reccomend (i.e biggest bang for the buck) also
if there is another manual out there I missed and that I might consider let me
know. Finally If any body is interested in selling me a used manual please
email me. Thanks all and have a great 3 day week end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
