Troy,

I'm in Gainesville and have always used 87 octaine in my 86 F150 with a 302
V8. The lower octane fuel has never caused any engine problems. Use a
higher rated fuel if you feel that you must, but I'll be surprised if you
find a reliable and knowledge source that will encourage you to do so.

ATF has detergents in it that will break up all the sludge and varnish that
has collected in the bottom of the pump. You'll end up with several years

I'll go one step further. If you don't have pinging, then your shouldn't
run more that 87.

You are causing more carbon buildup running a higher octane gas, and
hurting your engine.

________________________________________________________
Troy,

I've got a '94 F-150 XLT 300 I-6 4.9 L and my manual specifies 87 octane.
But then again, 89 may be recommended for the V-8 in your manual. I have,
though, on one occasion had spark knock, but just decided to never get gas
at
that station again (perhaps they have water in their gas....I wouldn't put
it
past them). I've had my truck almost two years now and have never had a
problem with 87 octane other than the one occasion. Give it a try and see
if
you experience any knocking.

I've read where 89 octane is not much different than 87 other than just a
few
more detergents. Can someone elaborate a little more on the difference
between the two? There's not much difference in the cost (mostly a penny or
two...depending on where you buy gas).

BTW, how much is gas down there in Florida? I live in Brighton, IL, but get
gas in the St. Louis area which is currently running around 85-87 cents a
gallon for 87 octane.

Later,
Craig

You can run it on the lowest you can get without detonation. Try the 87
octane (I run it, and have never had any problems). If you end up with
detonation, there are several things you can do:

1. Run higher octane, like you're doing now.
2. Try a lower temperature thermostat.
3. Reduce initial spark advance.
4. Check EGR.

Reducing your advance will make it a bit more sluggish. I don't know if
you even have EGR, but the purpose of EGR is to reduce the combustion
temperature to prevent the formation of oxides of nitrogen. Another
effect of the lower combustion temperature is lower combustion pressure,
which should reduce your tendecy to detonate.

I've already replaced the ignition module and distributor once, which is

wrong time... There does seem to be a heat-related factor in the failure; my

That's the best advice there, check the owner's manual. It will specify
the grade. Any higher than you need is just being charitable to the oil
companies. ;-)

Well, I'm no chemist, but that never stopped me before ;-). There is
some extra anti-knock agents in it. In the old days, that would have
been tetra-ethyl lead, now adays it ...

There may, or may not be more additives in it.

There's likely even less difference in cost to the oil companies. Most
of the extra cost is "value added" The value is being added to their
bank account.

Sorry about the ranting. But the bottom line is, run what doesn't make
your truck knock. Anything higher is a waste of money. If you want
detergents, evert five tanks or so, run one of the fuel injection
additives through the tank.

(my opinion, you paid nothing for it, and that's what it's worth ;-)

This topic has been kicked about on other lists, and the consensus seems
to be that you can get better performance for less money with a V8.
Still, (all together now): it's your truck. According to the '96 sales
literature (last year for the 300 AFAIK) the Big Six was rated at 145-150
hp 3400 rpm and 257-265 lb/ft 2000-2200 rpm. The numbers vary for
different trannies, CA emissions, and GVWRs, but this is the ballpark for
a late, fuellie I6. My '94 is speed density; I don't know if they ever
put mass air on the 6. For a high performance application you will
probably find carburation to be more productive, especially if you use a
Clifford intake, cam, and headers.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the help with the other questions. -here are a few more!
1. It looks like I have my hub leak fixed with new thicker o-ring, The cap
is still a little loose, I can press on it and it moves a little. There is
a large "lock ring" that comes in the Ford hub rebuild kit about the
thickness of coat hanger wire that is supposed to go on but when I put it
on the gap between the cap and hub looks too wide?-do I have to put this
thing on? 2. Just wondering if anyone knows what the redline is for a 1980
351M? Couldn't find this info in several manuals. 3. My cab corners have
been rusting out. I recently pulled the moldings, sill plates, and cover
off the spool for the front shoulder belts. These areas were loaded with
dirt and junk that I cleaned out. I noticed that there do not appear to be
any drain holes in these areas. Anything spilled on my rubberized
carpeting drains right into these areas and channels, but it appears that
they didn't insert any holes at the factory to drain these areas. I guess
they figured this would increase body shop revenue. Has anyone tried
drilling drain holes to alleviate this problem and do you have any ideas on
placement? 3. Somebody ripped off my bucking bronco tire cover!-any idea
where I could get another one & how much it would cost? Thanks again,

Not much better here in northern MN at about $1.15 a gallon. It'll be up

Hi all,
Quick Question(?)--87 5.0 F-150--- Does anyone know how big of a job it is
to put a gasket in a Borg-Warner transfer case? It's hanging off the back of
a C-6 if that makes a difference. How hard to take apart, and put back
together? And also, will I have to worry about any of the gears falling out
when I get it apart? I replaced the ones between it and the tranny a couple
months ago so they are good to go. Now that the truck is sitting in the
garage with the motor out I keep finding more leaks on my floor. When one
thing goes wrong it seems everything else feels left out and has to join in
on the fun of making me spend money I wish I had. Thanks to you all in
advance.
