Rob Sartorius,
If you figure out how to get better mileage than that let me know
because I have an '81 with 351W and c6 and 3.50 gears and I get about 8or 9
miles to the gallon and cant seem to make it any better either. Yes they are
equipped with an o2 sensor. >>

It's possible to get better. I have a "83 Ford Bronco with a 351W, C-6, and
3:55
gears and get 12 MPG on the highway and 10 around town in stop and go.
What carb and computer system do you have (EEC-III or EEC-IV) ?

I have a two barrel holley carb and the EEC-III system.

Troy,

This trick has been used for years and seems to work well. Tranny
fluid is slightly acidic and will clean out stuff pretty good. Although
I've seen "gunk" on a tranny pan before, I've never seen varnish or
gunk buildup in a tranny unless it was burnt up. An even better thing
to use is Marvel Mystery Oil. Its one heck of a solvent thats been
used for this type of stuff for longer than most of us have been alive.
It isn't a snake oil/cure-all that Snake 50, Duraboob, Motorchump, etc.
claim to be, its just a good cleaner/solvent. Its the best thing I've
heard of for freeing stuck lifters too.

... and if you spoon some oat bran into the carb it really cleans out
your exhaust system! Heh, heh. (Works best on che_ys; we all know what
they're full of...)

Subject: FTE 80-96 - ADMIN: Web site updates

Ford Truck Enthusiasts web site updates:

- - Several pictures added to pictorial (let me know if I missed yours, I
have a bunch of pictures that I lost the original email to!).
- - Rotary Lift article added to the tech articles page.
- - Several links added.

The new products pages are nearly complete and will be up tomorrow
night! This will feature products which are available at a discount to
Ford Truck Enthusiasts list members and web site visitors. Items
covering all years will be featured. If these pages do well we'll be
able to expand our free services. Web space has been tight so we
haven't been able to do some of the things we've been wanting to.

Hi All,

A idea came to me (*see below) and I thought here at small ford
people could exchange some thoughts better with pictures.
Recently I exchanged some wheel'n pictures with a guy from
Argentina. It was fun seeing his Jeep and the modifications he had done to
it. Also he sent scanned photo's of some of the places he has been. His
nephew had a scanner and was nice enough to forward me the pictures.

* My idea, Not everyone has a scanner. I do, and due to
circumstances beyond my control, I have extra time on my hands. It was
nice for a while but, getting old, fast. Soo, send me your photo's.
Each photo will receive personal attention. I studied photography
for nearly 25 years as a hobby. Only the best software is used. If anyone
has pictures they would like scanned into their computer, send them to me.
To cover expenses, I think $4 a dozen is a fair and good deal ($4 for 1-12
photo's).

This is intended for list members here on FordTrucks 80-96 and
two other lists I subscribe to. For a time I considered doing it for free,
but realized that, the last time the scanner was repaired it cost me ninety
bucks.

I will not post this again, so, save this post.

For details email me

Andrew

Will Tolune from paint store really work the same as fuel inject/cleaner
or will it really mess with the injectors and this is just a goof on us here?
Tool needs to know
how much does it cost per/pint or per/gal?
