Dave:

Could you please re-hash and summarize the original problem and the steps
you took to correct the problem? I've been reading this thread with
interest, but am a bit confused now - and I'd like to save your reply for
future reference...

Thanks, and congrats...

Todd

On todays trip, the usual porpoising on I-59 was gone...(and that road has
busted my trailer three times!!!) (bet Jim Cannon knows of which I
speak!)...STILL like those Gabrial shocks!
On the trip back, right up to incipient lock-up, no pull...COOL!!!
And she stopped at least 50% better than before!!!

Only thing that still worries me...maybe she'll want two new tires quite
often!!!!!

A much happier Dave H.

my name is austin courtright

i was just wondering if anyone knew a resonable price range
for me to get my 87 f250 painted...right now it is black with a little white
strip down the sides of it..the hood is like 3 different colors..for some
reason whenever i wash the hood the blue on it changes to a gray...
there is rust on the hood and some spots of rust nothing major

i was just wondering what a price range would be to get it painted again all
black??

i painted my f150 last yr and it cost me 1400 for a stock ford color..im sure
i got taken for but a ford dealership painted mine for me....i checked
numerous places and for the quality i found that ford would do it cheaper and
with just the same amount of respect as a after market shop would...you
choose check check and recheck if you get it done

Hi Amos,

Ford uses SDRC I-DEAS CAD software for their car and truck designs. It may
be a little hard to find a solid model, or wireframe model even, for that
truck in AutoCAD format. I also use IDEAS and AutoCAD at work and I checked
around the IDEAS community for a model of what you asked for, or anything
close, and didn't get any responses. I know you can't use an IDEAS model but
I can convert IDEAS solids to AutoCAD solids here at work if you do find it.

If you go to http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.sdrc.com/partners/iccon/mlist/ and post a message
like you did here, except ask for an IDEAS model of the truck, or something
close, you will have a better chance of finding it. Someone may have already
created or converted the model themselves for AutoCAD but you will have a
better chance looking for the format Ford themselves use.

Let me know if you find it and where to get it and I would be glad to
convert it for you.

Good luck,
Scott

Hello,

I have been given a request from a old friend who is a missionary to the
Dominican Republic. Fresh water is a hard thing to find in the villages
where he works. In response, someone has donated a mid-80's model Ford F-250
truck, with plans to add an engine and drilling rig to the back so that they
can drill small wells with it.

He has asked me to draw a representation of this modifiction so that he can
show it to the churches that are interested in supporting this work.

Not wanting to start from scratch, I have looked on several websites for
existing 3d CAD files (DWG, DXF, or 3DS) that I can modify for this, but
have not come up with anything yet. I was hoping that someone could point me
in a direction where I can put this together without having to go out, find
a truck and an engine, then physically measure and draw it in order to make
it reasonably accurate. Can anyone recommend a resource?

Amos Pressley

PS For what it's worth, I have known this missionary since he was a teen. He
is the real deal - - self-sacrificing, compassionate, and truly interested
in the physical and spiritual welfare of others.

Hi All,

I would like to make a request. Please talk to your
fellow truckers and find out about auto shows in your
area. They don't have to be Ford specific or truck
specific. If you have a form or flier, great! You
can fax it to me at (770) 806-1955 or mail it to me at
PO Box 422, Lilburn GA, 30048. If all you have is a rumor
contact me anyway. I've learned of five shows in the
last 24 hours, just by calling for info on one show.

If you are wondering what this is for, Ken and I would
like to meet more of you, and we know that Pigeon Forge
is a long way for some of you. So we are going to try
to see if we can go to some of these other shows around
the country.

I appreciate any help you can give.

Sincerely,
Peggy Payne FTEI

Subject: FTE 80-96 - IAC Valve Adjustments??

Hello,

My 90 F-150 with a 5.0 is stalling at idle when the AC is on, and I turn
the wheels sharply. This happened about 40k miles ago, and the shop
cleaned the idle air control valve and replaced it. That solved the
problem. As long as the motor that drives the valve is good, I assume all
it needs is another cleaning, or replacement.
Now, my question! If I just clean or replace the IAC valve, is there any
adjustment, or special orientation I need to do before I reinstall it on
the engine? Thanks!

Danny

Im in the New York City and in Raceway Park in Englishtown NJ there is a
truck show called the Cummins Diesel Truck Nationals. While this is not by
any means Ford specific they do run Ford F 250s and 350s in a class, as long
as they are diesel and there are a number of antique trucks on display in
the pit area. This usually takes place in September or October .
There is also a group that puts on antique car/truck shows called Long Island
Custom Cars. If i see any of their ads around i will let ya know.
Please keep me posted on any events in my area.. My son and I love to go to
these things

Good news, Dave!

So, it was (is) the tires. How strange.

I suggest you replace the slightly worn radius arm bushings and your uneven
tire wear will get better (but still be a bit of a problem). Fairly esay job.

Isn't US59 a pain! (Not I-59, but they say it might be I-69 some day. I
can't belive they'd name a road that!) If you get going just the right
speed you can build up some wicked oscillations in the suspension.

Later!
