The "O" ring problem is an injector issue. PSDs do not have an injection
pump, per se. There is a TSB on the problem and repair should be covered
under the engine 100,000 mile warranty. The repair consists of replacing
the "O" rings with new ones made of a different material. The old "O" rings
didn't work with the new EPA mandated diesel fuels. There are several
symptoms including low power and rough idling but the one the mechanics look
for is high oil consumption. If your PSD is using more than a quart of oil
per 1,000 miles you may have "O" ring problems. I have 40,000 miles on my
95 and "O" rings are still OK.

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.

Larry: thanks for responding so quickly -
The problem is in the exhaust system - the 02 Sensor, which governs the
burning of hydrocarbons - I have been away for a long time, and my truck won't
pass inspection (emissions control) here in Fla until I replace the O2
Sensor...can you help by sending instructions?

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

I'm coming in at the end of this discussion but would like to add my two
cents worth. I work in electronics and use high end meters, I have a
Wavetek in my toolbox. I decided to give a digital multimeter to my son for
Christmas and watched this thread for info. He is not an electronicer and
needs a meter suited for working on trucks not computers. I wanted a meter
with a reasonable current range. Capability to read DC voltage to 0.1 at 12
volts and resistance to less than 0.1 ohms. A 3 digit meter meets the
resolution requirement but most electronic use meters don't have very high
current capability, my Wavetek goes to 2 amps which is marginal. I also
wanted low cost. After much searching in local stores I found a Philmore
that met my needs for $25. The only limitation is it is not fused on the 10
amp scale. I have since found the same meter for $15 at Northern Tool &
Equipment Co., www.northern-online.com .
They do not claim who makes the meter but I can see by the picture it is the
same unit that I bought.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - F100 Nationals

Hey gang,

I am trying to find out how many of the 80-96 list and digest subscribers
might be interested in going to Pigeon Forge Tennessee for the F 100 Nationals
(May 14-16). I am in the planning group and we are talking now about number of
rooms to block and such. We have also taken into account the types of rooms
(smoking vs. nonsmoking) and places that allow pets. If you could just email
me off list and let me know if you would be interested in going. We are
basically going to reserve rooms on a pre-pay basis with the balance of the
total due just prior to arrival or at check in. FTE will again have a booth
set up this year, and we are discussing plaques, awards, and other items as
incentives to go and show your truck. We have also tossed around the idea of a
"cruise in" type deal where people from certain states meet together and drive
in as a show of our pride in FTE. If any of you have any other ideas you think
we need to discuss let me know and I'll throw it to the planning group for
discussion.
Thanks,
Wayne Foy

I've given up on solving my electrical problem. Any ideas on converting
to alternative electrical system?

Sprung a leak in my heater. How do I remove the heater core?

Subject: FTE 80-96 - New engine startup

I'm just putting the finishing touchs on my 351W rebuild. Crane cam, roller
timing chain/gears, 40 over pistons (if I did my math correctly, its now a
358W), cleaned up the journals, all new bearings, high-volume oil pump,
reworked the heads and even went as far as rebuilding the water pump.

I have a lot of time and money invested and my concern is the first startup
when all the oil is sitting in the sump. Since I have the old oil pump
shaft, it would be a simple matter to lengthen it and then use it to prime
the oiling system.

I'm interested in hearing your views on the pros and cons of priming the
system.

Dennis

Subject: FTE 80-96 - My POS J**p

Well after spending a couple of days working on my POS J**p I have
discovered that the previous owner or his mechanic should be shot. The list
of screwed up things I will have to redo or replace is too long and
uninteresting to repeat here. How ever I do have a Ford related
question...the intake manifold is designed for a spead bore carb (the SPO
had a SQUARE bore 4 to 2 barrel adapter plate and 2bbl Holley carb atop it).
Anyway the manual says that it was originally equipped with a Motorcraft
(Ford) 4150 4bbl carb. Where could I get one of these carbs? Is it any
good or is there a better replacement spread bore carb I can put on my 401?
I like the idea of have as much Ford parts as possible on this
thing..hopefully the quality will be absorbed by the J**p parts.
