Be nice,IF it was true. It's a chain letter folks. I had one of my hacker
buds run it through a decoder/descrambler prog and there is no counter
imbedded in the letter. Besides, if they tried to have this thing go to that

Yes, there should be a bolt holding the gear to the end of the camshaft.
There should also be a tab-washer (or a thin plain washer) that gets bent up
to prevent the bolt from backing out.

this conversion and what can I expect?

I've done this in a couple of earlier ('77-79) series vehicles. Don't claim to
be an expert, but I can tell you this. -- 351M/400 bellhousing will work on
460.(must use sheatmetal spacer off 460). 390/360 flywheel will work. Will
need the pilot shaft bearing from a 460. I used L&L motor mounts - pricey, but
worked much better than the 390 motor mounts I cut all to pieces and then threw
away.
You may have to change the towers (stanchions) the motor mounts sit on.

Crack a fitting on the fuel inlet to see if there is any pressure to that
point. This should narrow it down some.

Jacking it up, the tie rods don't seem to slip (not to my eye anyaway)
Turning the wheel, there is play (in the steering wheel) before the
tires begin to turn, probably a good half inch more than before. What
do you mean by the steering box? Sorry for the dumb question, but I am
not seeing what you are talking about...

Thanks,

A quick check is to jack up the front end and grab
each front
tire and move it left and right. Look at the tie rod ends a check for
movement.
I have found many bad tie rod ends this way. If you don't see movement,

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Brakes pulling

Hi everyone,

I have a question and I know that it has been covered but I can't
get the archive search engine to work. Here's the problem.

I changed the front brak pads on my 96 F150 302 auto 5 days
ago (actually I ended up having it done since I got sick). Anyway,
I now have a pretty significant intermittent pull to the drivers side
when braking. I assume that the drivers side brakes (front or rear)
are binding more tightly than the other side. How do I determine
where the problem is so I can fix it?

Thanks,

Tom in Phoenix

I just changed all that suff in my 88 F250 Diesel. Still had a little leak,
but couldn't find it. Turned out to be tiny crack's in all the return and
cooling radiator lines. Spend a few buck's on those rubber lines along with
the expensive stuff and save a lot of time.

Earlier this week, I heard about this on the news. I live near Tampa,
Florida, and I heard Ford bought a Copher's U-Pull it Junkyard in Tampa to
start their "Auto Recycling Program". It seems like a good idea to sell used
auto parts online, since people sell everything else online.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - 89' transfer case

i have an 89 f250 4x4 with a i-6, standard shift, borg-warner
transfer case. i get a bad vibe at 55 mph and above. i finally grabbed hold
of the shift lever for the transfer case and it felt like one of those crazy
orbital sanders(bad vibe)so i slowed down to 50 and checked out when i got
home. ifound oil all over the transfer case, but not dripping, shook the
yoke at the output of the case and it sounds like it has a little bearing
sloppage. the shaft doesnt move very much (about 3mm), but i dont know the
tolerances either. from the actual case, this part seems to be just an
extension(about 8 inches)to where it meets the rear drive shaft. has anyone
ever replaced these or know of a similar incident? how about the going rate
for a used borg-warner? any info would be greatly appreciated, john.

I also have a '91. As he said, there is a high pressure pump in each
tank. There is no other pump.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Yoke problem?

Questions:

1) Can manual transmissions have the dreaded yoke
problem? YES, IN FACT IT MAY BE MORE NOTICEABLE IN A VEHICLE WITH A
MANUAL TRANS BECAUSE YOU'RE LOADING AND UNLOADING THAT YOKE COMPLETELY MORE
OFTEN (Every time you shift...ask me how I know).

2) Can this problem be severe enough to keep the vehicle
from moving? NOT TO MY KNOWLEDGE UNLESS YOU HAVE SOME SORT OF
CATASTROPHIC FAILURE OF THE OUTPUT SHAFT OR YOKE.

My only worry with this is that they'll do much like Volkswagon did in
Canada a few years ago. They'd buy every VW that came in the yards. It
was almost impossible to find VW parts used, you pretty much had to buy
new.

Now, if they don't do that, and offer a fair price and offer parts for
other cars, too (undermining their prices, maybe :), then I'm ok with
it.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Disabling the Smog Pump

Have a '96 F150 with a California version 4.9 I6 and would like to pose a hypothetical
question. If I were to get stranded with a broken belt and could only find a smaller
belt. Which just so happens to bypass the smog pump. Would the disabling of the smog
pump affect the computer and produce error codes? Or is there anything that needs to
be done to fool the computer? So far I've been told, that the worst that could happen
is to
have increased power and mileage.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Back from Vegas.....

Well I'm back. No such luck geting rich quick, but I had a great time
nevertheless. Weather was nice the first few days, but it was rather
cool and raining most of the day yesterday(Thurs).

Took some pretty cool road trips when we were out there. You cant just
go to gamble y'know ;). Checked out 2 really neat places. Oatman
Arizona, and Zion National Park(Utah). Oatman was like a "ghost town",
really interesting, almost like being in the "old west". I kept
imagining one of those "ten paces turn and fire" kind of things, or
being told to "get out of town by sundown" by the sheriff.

Zion National Park is pretty amazing as well. Absolutely beautiful !!!.
Got a snapshot of a porcupine(?) sleeping in a tree.

It was also pretty cool being on highways where you can do 75 mph
*legally*. Course', most of us tend to +/- 10mph, when it comes to speed
limits. I *myself*, was cruising along between 75-85 out in the ol' dry
desert most of the time. It's really amazing. Most people actually seem
to know *how* to drive comfortably and safely along at that speed. You
don't find the reckless stupidity out there that you tend to find here
*all* the time.

Also went to a car show at the Imperial Casino right in Vegas close to
where we stayed. Had a whole room dedicated to Dusenbergs(?), pretty
neat.

BTW......

All you Toro guys and gals be on the lookout for a question.
