Is the valve itself bad or is it the EVP sensor the problem?The EVP
sensor is a potentiometer attached to the EGR valve that tells the
computer what position the EGR valve is in.Both can fail.Have you read
the codes from the EEC to verify this is really the problem?Is the new
EGR equipped with a new EVP sensor,or would that be "in addition to" the
quoted price? Just wonderin.

Not to do or maybe it does specifically with this post but can one of the
EEC gurus out there give some directions on basic troubleshooting of the
different EEC systems?.. Thanks

I can't remeber who it was that was looking for info to swap a 302 w/ a
351W. I've got the excerpt from Four Wheeler Mag (Jan '98 issue).
I ripped it out and I've got it in my Bronco binder. It's about four pages
(including the advertisements) It's on a beige background so I don't think
it will scan or fax very well. I can try to answer questions though....

Guys,I'm no expert on the EEC by any stretch of the word,but before
disconnecting the battery to fool the EEC and erase the memory,you might
wanna take a couple minutes and retrieve the codes left in the memory
first.You may be glad you did later.After re-connecting everything and
given thew EEC a chance to establish new operating perameters,read the
codes again,if any.A couple of problem areas that come to mind on these
symptoms are faulty HEGOsensor,throttle position sensor(TPS),and EVP(EGR
valve position sensor).These components may have specific fault codes
that can be read through the EEC to pinpoint the exact problem and save
you some time and money.Happy hunting!

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Re: Tailgate Lettering

On my '83 F-250, the tailgate letters are painted on to begin with. (not
stickers) I actually painted mine white when I got it, because the person I
got it from had always used the brown wax over top of them and they were
very dingy. (it looked rather bad becasue they stood out like a sore thumb,
so I polished em up with brown wax a few times) The same goes for the
racing stripes, but I can't paint them. Just curious, how much was the
paint job? In Ketchikan Alaska, depending on which of the two shops you go
to, for a fullsize pickup paintjob, it is 4,500 to 5,000.

Thanks
Casey

THat price is for single color no stripes or effects and only black or
white. Other colors cost more, (why I don't know, makes no sense to me why
black is cheaper than yellow or red or whatever for that matter)

My F-250 has vented caps, but the F-800 has a solid metal cap, and no
breathers that I can find. As much I like Fords, they need to actually
physically break once in a while, instead of just not quite being right, so
you know what the heck the problem is. (I am not so great at
troubleshooting the thing) I am probably knocking on some iron bark here, I
will drive to town tommorow and something will *break* and then I will be
mad :-)

Thanks
Casey

I've heard of this too, fuel caps are designed to let air in and
not out, perhaps its stuck??

I have been chewing over the gas to diesel swap for a while, and after
looking at how much work I want to put in, I was considering a 460 swap over
a the diesel. There were some good points brought up about what I needed
and if I am going to be using the same truck a gasser will be easier to put
in. My question is has anybody ever dealt with

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.engineexchange.com/index.html

these guys before? They seem to have reasonable prices (course I havn't
found many other places...) For 948.00 is it all it is cracked up to be?

Thanks
