Geeof,
I find I have a more comfortable feeling about the truck being
raised when the stands are under the axles. I don't like the looks
of them under the frame.So that is how I do it.

Just as a side note, my Dad puts his under the axles on
his '81 Bronco as well. May be thats why I started do it
that way ? :-)

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Clock and radio light

I've a 92 F 150. The clock display is gone and that side of my radio seems to
have a light bulb burnt out. When I shined a flashlight on the clock I could
see the time so I think the digits are still working. Question: How do I
remove the face of the radio and will that help me fix my clock and radio
light?
Thanks,
J. Hill

Subject: FTE 80-96 - bad starter

Pulled the starter today and lo and behold it was fine. Some teeth on
the flywheel were definitely damaged though. Checked with the local
napa dealer about a ignition switch and he told me the problem could lie
with the lock tumbler, the switch or the linkage between the two. I
haven't been in the steering column yet to see what's in there. Do you
pull the steering wheel off or remove the column covers to get in there?
A couple of you said it was an easy job, how did you do it?

Please tell me everything you can think of to help my gas mileage, money
really isn't a challenge, thanks! And thanks for the help you've already
given me, I've also been told to get a K&N air filter.

Geoff,

I think it is easier to do certain jobs with the truck supported under
the frame. It isn't a safety issue, but you don't have to fight the
suspension. For example, if you need to nudge the transmission a little
when you are trying to line it up, it is easier if the whole truck isn't
moving, as it is when you support under the axles.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - 82 F-150 runs...well sometimes

Hello all,

I need some advice here. I have (well actually my wife drives it) a 1982 F-150
SC with a 351 (rebuilt about 40,000 miles ago)with a C6 auto trans that has me
completely baffled. The truck was running fine until about 4 weeks ago when it
started acting as though it had run out of gas (coughing etc.), well my wife
took it to the local mechanic for diagnosis and this is what he did:

1. installed a new distributor (cracked base)
2. new plugs, wires, cap and rotor
3. new ignition module
4. crankshaft positioning sensor (CPS)
5. used harmonic balancer (this thing has 4 nipples that apparently the CPS
uses to sense) a nipple broke off due to hitting the CPS
6. replaced carb. (existing one was under warranty and was flooding)

The truck does run better, however it is very inconsistant-stalls when put
into gear but not all the time. Idles very high about half the time as though
the choke is stuck, but when I take the air cleaner off the butterfly is wide
open.

The truck has been taken back to the mechanic and left for several days and he
says he is not experiencing any of these problems. Any suggestions would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dennis

Subject: FTE 80-96 - How to make a Light for checking EECIV codes?

Hello,
I recently took my F150 to a mechanic who used a small pen with a LED
light in the end of it to read the codes from the EEC IV. Does anyone here
know how to make one as his was only a home-made thing. I just need to know
what size LEDs, what size resistors, etc. Any help would be much
appreciated.

Regards,....
