I understand that there is some type of problem with O-rings on the
'95 P.S.D.
What are the symptoms? I sure don't want to have to pay for a new
pump if mine goes and Ford has a recall.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Re: digital multi-meter

I have several of these,and they work well,especially for ohming out
sensors and reading fractional voltages.I frequently wind up using
analogs though.I find them more useful for finding lighting problems and
the seem much better for finding bad connections and such.I have both a
Universal M110 and Simpson 260 analog meter that both work very well.The
best bang-for-the-buck was by far the Universal M110; which are close to
50 bucks.The worst thing about analog meters is in the event you attempt
to read voltage with the ohms scale.They are both fused,but it's a
hassle to change them...

Subject: FTE Perf - FORD RANGER 5.0 BUILD UP IDEAS, THOUGHTS NEEDED

Hello All! Merry Christmas! I have a few questions about an engine build
up that I am contimplating for my 90 ranger4x4. I want MAXIMUM low end
torque and midrange.

1.) Can anybody suggest some good naturally aspirated engine combos? I'm
thinking I would like to use a stock block late 5.0 with an aluminum
bottom cap girdle, Holley heads and an edelbrock upper EFI intake, E303
cam, good headers, flowmaster or Gibson Ex., 65-70 TB etc. What do you
think? If you think you have a better combo please do tell!

2.) Same basic long block as above but with a Kenne Bell screw charger
at 8-9 lbs, slightly lower comp. and differant cam. Anyone use this SC
before or now someone who does?

3.) A turbocharged setup, again same long block, low comp, with newer
quick spooling turbos for no lag. Probably home made kit and headers,
two turbos, with boost control so as to adjust boost as needed (0-10lbs)
so as not to have boost kick in while "finessing " a trail but still
have good power and fuel economy on road.

Any suggestion please? If so please add to my ideas with any personal
experience or info. Also this will be attached to a properly built AOD
or AODE.

Thanks,
Bryan S.

It was made for Trick Fow and had two TBs that pointed to each front
corner of the engine and flowed into individual runners at the center.
It had TRICK FLOW embossed in big letters across the back portion of the
manifold that rapped around the back top portion. Pretty trick looking.
I know it was sold and made by Will Burt Automotive as I have an old
magazine from from February 92 that has a pic and add for it, complete
upper and lower was $900 with all linkage etc. Could be a good manifold
for a twin turbo set up.

Thanks all,
Bryan

Looking for your expiernce with 460 mods such as Edelbrock RV cam,
manifold and carb for towing. I have done this with great success on a
Grand Wagoneer. I'm thinking of doing it to my crew cab dually, 1985,
460, C-6, 410 rear. Tell me your stories.

From: "David R Anderson"
Subject: FTE 80-96 - Re; Digital Multitester

My preference on multitesters is to have moderately priced units of both
varieties, analog and digital. A good example of why is testing the TPS
most of us have our trucks. My Fluke 77?? was no good here. I had to
borrow a friend's analog unit to measure resistance (or voltage). Because
what is critical here is a SMOOTH change in resistance from idle to wide
open. An analog meter is required to see the little spikes to infinity
(worn spots on the pot). So plan is to add about a $20 - $30 unit to my
tool box.

Dear Bryan,

Would you know if there are any high performance parts availible
for a 4.9 litre, 300 ci straight six? I own a 1995 ford standard cab and
would love to soup up my straight six. I guess it's a fetish thing. I am
having a hell of a time even finding bolt on accessories.

Thanks, Brandon.

P.s.- If you know someone with special six cylinder high performance
knowledge could you please send me his e-mail.
