Jerry

There is a check valve on each tank. When the rear tank pump is running, the
fuel is going the wrong way through the front tank check valve and is
filling the front tank. The check valve is about $20 at a Ford dealer. Be
careful when you remove the valve. It is a "Chinese Finger Puzzle" type
connection. There may be a problem with the front tank pump, but fix one
problem at a time.


Hope this helps.

Has anyone determined whether any of the microprocessors used in
controlling ford truck electrical systems, braking, fuel delivery etc.
are going to crash on January 1, 2000 as is the case on many other types
of rolling stock?

The Alldata TSB list shows a recall for a cross feed condition. I would
start by calling your Ford dealer with this TSB/recall number: SEP 93
Cross Tank Fuel Flow Condition - Recall 93S68. I'm like you with my
'90 F150 dual tank. The manual says there is supposed to be a fuel
solenoid on the left frame rail somewhere. I'll be darned if I can find
it. Mine doesn't cross feed, there is just no reading on the fuel gauge
while on the front tank. Good luck.

I seriously doubt it. I seriously doubt the cars or the trucks that
are out there today even CARE what the date is.

Since it has come up, I'd actually like to get a more specific FTE decal

I'd be glad to pre-order/pay for a few to help off set set-up & printing

I have to sell more of the current stock first. I had a second
production run in April. It costs me about $200 per run and I
have to sell 66 stickers to break even. Based on the last run,
it took 6 months to sell out. In other words, I'm not getting
rich!

Almost forgot, the $200 is for one color. The web logo is 3 colors.
Cost for screen creation per color is $50 so the total for a run
would be $300. I'd had to raise the price to $4.00, not including
shipping to break even at 66 stickers.

David,

I have never heard of Merimont, but Walker seems to be a pretty good brand.
They should just bolt up to the factory bracket locations if you order the
pipes specifically for your truck.

>From what I've been told by the local Off-road / performance shop and
others, most all of the aftermarket shocks and steering stabilizers
(such as Rancho, Cepek, Skyjacker) come out of the same factory -- (i.e.
Monroe). Some are made slightly differently by the mfg. for the
aftermarket company, but most are the same shock with different paint
and labels. I look more at the best price for shocks with comparable
specs than who makes them because chances are the same folks made them
anyway.
