Subject: FTE 80-96 - Parts without robbery

I am looking for an aftermarket source for parts for my '91 F-350. I
called/visited about 6 local parts stores looking for a power door lock
accuator. Every time I was directed to the dealer. I ended up paying $99
because I am to lazy to reach accross the cab to unlock the passenger door.
I believe this is to high a price to pay for sloth! Anybody got any
suggestions?

Thanks, Hal Sylvan

Ford just recently came out with a TSB for your exact concern. There is a
company you can call and get a special lube for the gears in the back. I
dont know the number of the TSB but maybe your dealer does. If you have
trouble getting it yourself let me know and I can get the info for you.

Chris-
You are right, the stickers under the hood are not great, but they are your
best reference. Work with a Helms shop manual to decode the sticker, and
then post specific questions to the group. People who also have '86s (it
helps to know which engine you have and if it is a Calif. model) will help
you out.

My 1980 F-150 with the 300 CID I-6 engine had a bad hesitation when I got
it from a friend and I traced it back to incorrect vacuum hose routing. It
took me a few days of reading, careful tracing, and labeling to get them
all right. (And this is a simple engine, I suspect, compared to your '86.)

underneath the hood, but it sucks. Drawings, pictures, information,
etc would be appreciated greatly. I have 3 or 4 hoses that I can't
figure out where to put."

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.

Yes. The trucks with cruise have the controls built into the wheel, I
haven't seen a single one of them that has it on the side like some
of the little japs.

I've got a question for 'ya since we are on the subject of fuel
cleaners. A friend of mine suggested that I put a quart of
transmisison fuel in my tank about twice a year to try and get rid of
any kind of buildup. I was wondering if this was safe and if the
effects are really worth it? Thanks.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Info on popping noise

Just thought that I would pass along some information that I have received
since my post last week.

A lot of good help came about from the list members. Thanks to a few good
tips, I have hopefully identified the problem as belonging to the
crossmember at the rear of the manual transmission. Others with a 2WD PSD
and 5 speed manual solved their problem by placing washers between the frame
and crossmember in some form or another.

Some were able to get Ford to do it, using a TSB as a helper. By placing a
nylon washer between two stainless washers, then placing this sandwich
between the crossmember and frame at each bolt, the problem is apparently
cured. Maybe this will help a few other people like me.

Thanks again to all.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - offtopic bookmarks

This is offtopic here, but the list isn't packed right now.. I have
been using MIE 4.0 for a browser forever, and finally downloaded
Netscape Communicator. Is there a way to add all of my bookmarks from
MIE (probably 60+ of them) to Netscape? I can't figure out how except
to visit each page again and bookmark it. There has to be an easier way
though?

Thanks
Casey Vandor
