Ooops....I guess I was advancing the timing....*grin* It has been a while
since I have been fooling with vehicles with adjustable timing....

Thanks. I will try to get it right this time.

My parts place sold me type f which I put in the transmission. The dipstick
says Dextron II. Do I need to redo this?

Reset the timing back to 8 degrees (or whatever your book states) and try a
higher octane fuel. I had a similar situation with a small vacuum leak
that I couldn't find and this helped.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Lightning gauge cluster

I have a question....

I have a '95 F150 4X4 with a 5.0. I really would like to put a '95
Lightning instrument gage cluster in place of the stock cluster now. I've
took the dash apart to see how it is set up in the back and there is just 2
wiring harness which plug in. My truck doesn't have the tach. I was
wondering if this will just be a plug in type thing or will I have to rewire.
I'm not sure if the different engine types would make a difference either.
Ford dealers around here don't have a clue and I tried to contact the 1-800 #
on the back of the dash, but that is just for service technicians. Any input
will be appreciated. Thanks,
Bryan

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Re: drive to school

I understand about the compression thing and all, but I didn't word my
question right. I was just concerned about when it gets cold up here,
if I can still get it out of gear ok in the morning, or to leave it in
neutral and chalk the tires so that I don't have to stand on the clutch
waiting for the tranny to warm up. While we are on the subject though,
I am curios if there would be a differnce in parking it in first or
fourth on a big hill. THe manulas always say to use only first or
reverse when leaving, why not 2,3 or 4?

Thanks
Casey

slightly, then about a half hour later it did it again. It was
from low compression. It would move just enough until the next
cylinders' compression again stopped it.
Sorry for all the bandwidth, but hope I could be of some
assistance.

No matter what you do it is best to let the tranny warm up for a little bit
when it gets real cold out. I deal with this a lot since I live in northern
MN. Leaving it in gear overnight isn't going to hurt it and it would be
safer than just blocking the tire. You can let it sit and warm up in neutral
in the morn before you go so you don't have to stand on the clutch the whole
time.
