Chuck, If your Trans is "slamming" into ANY gear,then a problem
exists.You will need a good book on your truck that tells you how to
retrieve the transmission codes and what those codes are.Your EEC-IV is
capable of not only self-diagnostics for the engine,but the trans as
well.I have no experience with the chiltons,but the Haynes is
so-so.Factory manuals are best.

Hey all!
I have been doing the flush and fill thing for a long time on all my vehi=
cles.
I believe it's a very good thing as it gets a whole lot of the junk out =
of there that draining just doesn't get.
It just so happens that just the other day, that little T cracked and I =
had to replace it. Not a common occurence I'm sure, but just something =
to note.

Thanks!

in one of my books it says that if the check engine light come
on, there is a wire to short in the cab, left side, floor, and
then the check engine light will flash between 1 and 13 times
indicating the trans problem, however, it says to leave the truck
on, the other problem is that I don't have any check engine
lights and the EEC-IV system check port under the hood indicates
that the light and system check out OK indicating a 111 code
twice. Anymore ideas out there?

The specs for the fuel tank sending unit in a '92 F250 are as follows. 145
ohms full, 22.5 ohms empty. More than likely the float has caught on
something and is stuck in the upper position. Jram

From: "David Roemhild"
Subject: FTE 80-96 - Engine Swap

Hello Everyone,

I am new to this list so I would like to introduce myself, as I will
probably be here for a while. My name is Dan (I use my uncle's email
account) and live in South Carolina. In 1994, I bought my first Bronco to
help me move out of my apartment. It wasn't much to look at given the
advanced state of cancer rust. It was an 85 basic model. It had nothing on
it, vinyl seats, 300 straight six, 3-speed granny gear, no air, and no power
accessories, but it ran great, always started without hesitation and handled
like no truck I had ever driven. However, I loved it. I use the past
tense, because a friend came upon hard times and I sold it to him as he
needed a vehicle. Since then, I bought an '86 XLT with a 302 (sold it) and
now own another 85 with a 351 HO.

Now, my question is this: I bought my '85 knowing that the engine was
going to need a rebuild. Rather than rebuild it, I think that I am going to
swap the 351 with a '71 429 out of an old LTD. The 429 is in incredibly
good shape (can't say much for the LTD surrounding it), but I need some
help/advice from any/all of you.

1) I am fairly certain that the oil pump on the 429 is in the front and in
the rear on the 351. As such, I imagine that the oil pan is going to need
to be changed. Any suggestions?

2) Also, are the engine mounts the same (or reconfigurable)? Or, am I
going to need to change them? If so, where should I get the replacements?

3) I plan on switching the ignition to an elctronic ignition. Any
suggestions on brands?

I would greatly appreciate any help/advice that anyone can offer.

Thanks,

Dan Brewer

This happened to me after replacing broken windows. The screech was from
embedded glass is the side rails of the window track. Tried cleaning,
scraping...you name it... went away when the rails were replaced.

Does anyone know of a Ford V-6 site similar to 'The Ford V-8 Engine
Workshop' at

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.wrljet.com/engines?

If so, could you please send me the link

I would like to find some horsepower and torque figures as well as
interesting facts about the design of these engines (the 2.8, 2.9,
3.0, and 4.0)

Thanks

Been There!

It is a wire connector that you can find right in front of the EEC-IV
module on the distributor. It is actually in the wiring harness off of the
module. It is an in-line connector that you unplug to set the timing.

I posted sometime ago that I could not locate the crankcase breather element.
My owners manual shows a part number. To those who posted or e-mailed me
thier assistance, I checked out the complete airbox and intake system without
luck. If anyone has the same model truck as I do could you look where yours
is located.

Thanks,

From: RobSweed aol.com
Subject: FTE 80-96 - E4OD

Does anyone know if the E4OD is a 3 speed with a lock up converter or 4 speed
with lock up converter? When my truck shifts past 2nd there seems to be two
more gears, a quick third, then 4th gear (with the OD shut off) or it's
slipping (OH S%&T) between 2nd and 3rd.

I bought this truck a year and a half ago with 20K and have only put on
another 5K. From the time I got it I can feel in the seat of my pants a thump
(in the truck not my pants) about 1 second after I accelerate from a stop.
I've tried it with the OD off, with the selector in 1st and in 2nd. I've even
coasted it to a stop without using the brake thinking that a brake shoe or pad
was hanging up. It still thumped. It feels like when something shifts in the
bed but it is very slight and inaudible. You just feel it. It's driving me
nuts.

Thanks in advance.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Trans cooler lines

Sorry for the series of posts but all I've been able to do is lurk. Been to
tired to post and I have a few questions.

This question isn't a truck question but it is a Ford question, well actually
a Merc one. A neighbor kid is replacing his radiator in his Cougar. He broke
one of the fittings off the trans cooling line. It isn't the standard flared
fitting that I'm used to. The line goes into the fitting but isn't flared on
the end. The line doesn't come out of the fitting and the only thing I can
think of that prevents the fluid from leaking between the fitting and tubing
is o-rings. Pep-boys and a local parts store could only offer standard flared
tubing which will fit into the radiator but, without the proper mate the flare....
