A friend installed a '97 seat in his '70 F-250. He got it from a place
that does
interior customizing. Like wheels & tires, guys ditch the stock seats for
custom.
His seat was about $250 to $300. He installed the old track on the new
seat.
New aftermarket stuff (with silly names) goes for about $600 and up.

So, whats the good of a large battery if you can't start thetruck anyways.
Guess you keep a spare one on hand. What
size battery you got anyway. I have a dual battery setup.
You might want to consider that, rather than having one
larger battery. That way if you go with what I have, then
you can get the juice of two batteries when you need it,
like for winching, not that I would EVER get stuck. :-)

I am just in the middle of replacing the dash in my 87 E350 Clubwagon.
I am trying hard to quiet any noise of my diesel down.
I am spraying the underdash and firewall surface with rockguard,
then applying "Freeze Guard" self adhesive ashpalt sheet and then filling
the corners and beams and empty spaces with urethane foam.

Anybody have any ideas or suggestions about this?

Thanks to the list!

I have sent two questions to the list over the last to months and expected
no reply. The first was a complex problem of a 90 ford F-150 shutting down
and doing all sorts of weird crap. I got a reply, after the ford diagnostics
said it was all in my head, that said a fuel pressure regulator and
Hypertech. BINGO!!!! Fixed. I sent a second question about ball-joints and
expected short simple answers but instead I got a fantastic description of
how to do the entire job including lessons learned. Now I am not nervous
about the job at all, thanks Rick Wojo. THIS LIST IS GREAT! I hope I can
provide valuable input as well.

Thanks

If it is overspray from painting a building it is most likely latex paint.
You can remove latex paint overspray by wiping down with rubbing alcohol.
Then wax since the alcohol may remove any protective wax. Alcohol should
not hurt your car paint. If you had a good wax job before the overspray
occurred the overspray may come off when you apply your new wax.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Bad Gas Mileage

Guys, I have a 85' Bronco (FS) and I just rebuilt my 351W last December
and ever since then I can't get any gas mileage out of it at all. I had
the tranny gone through but I don't think he did much accept replace a
broken band brace. I put a semi new Holley 4160 600cfm carb on it and
it did not effect the gas mileage at all. I had dual exhaust put on it
and I took off the emissions stuff. When I did this did I maybe screw
up the vacuum. Should I have replaced the cam to a lower torque, semi
performance cam. Can I replace the trannies valve body and inprove
shift points and torque. I know I have asked alot of questions but I am
really frustrated with this thing right now. I love my Bronco very much
and I want to keep it but 7.5 mph is not going to get it.

Subject: [none]

I have a 1991 Ford F150 (5.0 litre) and I just had a new exhaust system put

on it. I was looking to get a better sound so, I told a mechanic that I
would like to get hedders but since they
were so expensive he said that if I just wanted to get a better sound I
should get the following: Single-Catalytic converter with a dual out
splitter, dual glass packed mufflers and 16 inch echo tubes.

So I did get this exact system but, I'm just not getting the sound that I
was expecting. I mean I have 1/2 ton pickups pass me on the road all the
time and they practically sound like Harley Davidsons. What is my problem?

Do I need to get Hedders and a dual catalytic converter system or is there

something else that I'm not considering that is causing my lack of sound?

From: Geoffrey Schrag
Subject: FTE 80-96 - Re: Leaking Hub, Axle Ratios, Popping noise?

Hey Guys,

I'm new to Fords & 4x4's so you'll have to bear with me. I just bought
a 1980 Ford Bronco (351M-2barrel 4sp manual). I put 15k hard miles on it &
its been a good vehicle w/the exception of a couple nagging problems.

1. I noticed that there is a small gap where the manual locking hub cap
mates up with the hub and even after torqueing the allen head cap screws
to spec it does not seal up and leaks grease.
2. I have a 3.50 gear in the rearend which is good for getting it moving
off the line, but I do some highway driving and would like to go with a
numerically lower ratio if possible, just wondering if anyone's
experimented with this.
3. I've heard that I can get better fuel economy if I go to a 4-barrel
carb and new intake, but only if I could do something about my lead foot &
keep from opening up the secondaries?
4. Every now and then I've noticed what I can only describe as a popping
or slapping noise when I turn the front wheels or go through a dip. A
mechanic told me that this is characteristic of these vehicles and this
noise is made by a structural member flexing when the frame is put under a
load?

Any assistance would be appreciated, thanks in advance,

Geoffrey,
Check the black O-ring on the hub cover. Make sure you have one,
and if you do inspect it for any tears or blemishes. If not, or it is in
bad shape then just go to a junk yard and just about any Ford 4wd
Bronco and Pickup manual hub O-ring should work. Let us know what
you find out.

I would look at two things. All three u-joints. Check/grease/replace
all three u-joints on the front axle. Also check/grease your front axle
slip-joint on the passenger side. This is assuming you have the
Dana-44 IFS.

Geoffrey,

I has this happen on my 96 F-150. After I checking the O ring and seeing
that it was good. I removed the cap, put a small of silicone on edge of the
cap and tightened the screws. This is also good if you are doing any
four-wheeling because it keeps water out of the hubs.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - 83 ifs pivot bushing

My shop manual says I have to remove the front end members and then have a
special tool to press out and install the pivot bushings on the front end
of my 83 F150 4x4. I have the engine removed for rebuild and have removed
all the axle shafts, gears etc from the front end. not much but the
springs, shocks etc holding the front end to the truck. Can I get away
with putting a floor jack under the pivot bushing, removing the bolt and
lowering it enough to get to it and bang it out with a bfh and pound in a
new one? I don't want to remove the pivot bushing bolt and start lowering
and then get 100's lbs. of front end parts in the kisser. My wife likes my
kisser the way it is.

Would I be happier with polyurethane pivot bushings? What about
polyurethane engine and xmsn/transfer case mounts? I've heard they
increase roughness and vibrations but are tighter. The reason I am leaning
this way is because I have the manual clutch linkages and have read that
engine/chassie movement is a weak link of this system. I'm not interested
in changing all of my suspension bushings to poly but being I have to
replace the mounts anyway I was wondering if anyone had any pros or cons to
this thinking. thanks

Ok Ken taking me down memory lane all the way back to high school
here. I can probably give a rough translation:

Hello,
My name is Eric Leroy, I live in Brussels (Belgium) where I drive
around in my 1988 Ford F-150 (300 6 cyl. :)) It was a special import
from the USA. -- There are hardly any in Europe -OR- There aren't any
this nice in Europe (something like that anyway) -- , but it is
difficult to find parts. Is there a dealer in the U.S.A. that
delivers (or has catalog of) parts,

Just wait until the Spring Pigeon Forge truck show. I'll bet 50-100 of us
show up. You'll find out that friends can and have been made here.

Sent that one by mistake, here is the finished __translation__ -term
used as loosely as this translation...hehe

delivers (or has catalog of) parts, a drawing or serial number for
order? [sounds weird there [, a drawing... so I might be off a
little) Could you tell me if something exists on CD ROM?

WHEW!!!

That's the best I can do Ken, maybe someone else can clarify a little
better, but there it is.

Later,

Okay, I tried testing all the fair size leads to the ignition switch.
None of them have juice. Does anybody know which particular one should
be hot? My haynes says the white one should be, but it isn't. Next
question, (kinda far out there) Could the voltage regulator be bad? I
can't think of anything else. I did do a jumper from the pos. batt. to
the starter side of the solenoid, and the starter cranked fine. I have
tried tracing form the solenoid to the key, but I can't quite get there.
I end up going from the sol. to a little sol. attached to the side of....
