Hey Pat,
I dont know how hard it is for your f-350. but i just changed out the heater
core on my e-250 and it was pretty easy. all i had to do was disconnect the 2
hoses in the engine compartment. then go under the right side dash and remove
the core housing cover , screws and brackets and it was replaced.see if you
can access the core by the inside of your truck. if you can, then you got it
made. good luck.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - ADMIN: Email addresses

Hello Ford Truck Enthusiasts list members!

In late July, Ford Truck Enthusiasts offered email addresses to
list members for a low fee in order to ease the financial burden
FTE has on my family (loss of several thousand per year, which
could be better spent on a college fund for my two children).

We asked for a commitment from at least 20 people to buy email
addresses. Due to failure to pay for the service by nearly 40%
of the people who ordered it, the email service has increased
the financial impact on my family, rather than help it. FTE is
now obligated to our hosting company to pay for the email service.

If you would like to purchase an email address for 6 months or
1 year in the form of yourname ford-trucks.com, we would appreciate
it. You can use the address for any personal email, not just
list email. Not only will it help us, it also shows your Ford
truck pride to everyone you email.

FTE email addresses are compatible with just about every browser
and email package there is (for techies, it uses SMTP/POP3). You
can use it from most any internet provider.

The cost?
Personal Use
============
- Total of $20 for 6 months.
- Total of $30 for 12 months.
- Additional addresses are $14.50/6 months and $26.50/12 months.

(For those who remember the last email about this, I simply rolled
the setup costs into the payment).

Existing Ford truck clubs
=========================
- One address for free so long as it is used for club
purposes only and is not used in conjunction with mailing
lists (except ours). Using it for club announcements and
communications with club members is allowable if the volume
is kept to a reasonable amount.

Please email me at kpayne mindspring.com if you're interested.
Include 3 email addresses (in case your first choice is taken) and
a notice that you want 6 or 12 months. Additionally, send the
password you would like to use with the account. Addresses must
start with a letter and contain only letters, dashes or numbers.
Your account will be set up with 48 hours of receipt of your email.
You'll have 2 weeks days after your invoice is emailed to send
payment.

Please think about what FTE has offered you and remember that
although we stand by our promise to keep FTE's mailing lists free,
they aren't free for the Payne family.

Regards,
Ken Payne

Subject: FTE 80-96 - A-Freeze on PSD ??

At 60k, I have decided to change my A freeze. I have added to
supplement as required at 30k.
Questions;
1) Any Special type required?
2) Do you ADD 8 oz. of the afore mentioned anti-corode to fresh
A-Freeze?

Thank in advance,

It's even easier if you remove the Glove box.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - ? open circuit

I have a 1993 F-150 XL 4x4. I have been having an intermittent problem
with an open circuit, my battery died Saturday. When I disconnect the
negative battery cable and connect a multimeter between the cable and
the battery post I get 2.35 amp drain from the battery. When I pull fuse
#8 for the circuit including courtesy, dome, cargo lamps, the radio and
speedometer memory, and the warning buzzer and chime module, the drain
returns to a few milliamps. I had this problem last year and sprayed the
connector for the buzzer with WD-40 and covered it with plastic, this
fixed the problem. At the time I believed snow may have gotten in the
connector and caused the drain. I had disconnected the buzzer several
years earlier because I hate the noise and it was hanging where snow
from my boots could easily enter the connector.
I was wondering if I could cut the wires on the connector to disconnect
it altogether? Would this be wise? Any advice on diagnosing this kind of
problem would be appreciated.

Gary,
I looked into this very thing sometime last year for my '87 F-250
although I never followed up on it. But if I remember right there's a
relay control or some other type of a control box that the switch is
wired into on a factory truck (I think Chilton's had a listing for the
that relay or something). I thought about just getting the switch and
that box from a bone yard donor but never seem to find the time to go
and look. I often wondered if the control box was exactly the same on
trucks originally equipped w/delay and w/o and it is just the switch
you pay for on the options list. I was going to get the control box
(relay box?) from the donor truck just to be on the safe side. I
didn't want to buy an aftermarket unit, I like accessories in my truck
to look as factory as possible and since Ford did make a delay switch,
take advantage of it.

Later,
Randy
