I now know that I'am dealing with enamel paint. Knowing that is Macco a good place to
have a paint job done? I have heard alot of bad things about them but everyone that
doesn't like them. Seems to expect base coat/ clear coat quality from there enamel. Can
any one tell me if they are a decent place? Sence the enamel has lasted this long and the
price is so much cheaper I'd like to stick with it.

I have recently purchased a '86 F150 Lariat 5.0 litre. Can anyone tell me
what the Lariat insignia means. Do they have options that other F150s don't
or is it just the 'Plain Jane' model?

Lariat is a model line that is more upscale from the base XL model,
and the XLT model.

I had exactly the same problem.

My solution for them not staying up was to remove the steel rod from the
visor. Just twist it back and forth while withdrawing it. Then bend the
tube in (which is inside the visor) with a vice or rubber mallet. Put a rag
over it while you do so. When you put the steel rod back in the visor tube
it will be much firmer.

As for having the visor come back and hitting you in the face as I'm sure
it does, remove the whole visor from the vehicle (3 screws) and tap the end
of the tube over with a hammer to make it tighter.

This worked for me, but I don't know how long it will last. They are really
very weak.

I'm new to the list and I wanted to see if anyone on this list discusses

Ford Vans. I have an '84 E-150 with the 300 I6, 124" wheelbase. I
recently had it painted, and rebuilt the engine about two years ago.
I'm looking for a new intake manifold, hopefully something better than
stock. I would like to fit a fuel-injection system on it, but seeing as

I don't currently have the cash, a new carb will have to do. Any
