If you press the brake pedal w/out the drum on, just one side may move,
since the other will move only while the first encounters resistance
from the drum.

I read recently of a similar problem...loss of power when the headlights were
turned on...The mechanic eventually hooked up a simple grounding strap to the
metal headlight housing and a good ground on the truck. Good Luck .

Identification & Interchange.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Fw: Transmission Fluid

I recently submitted a posting stating that you could not mix conventional
and synthetic transmission fluid. Following that I received some responses
stating
that YES you can mix the two.

I apologize for passing along incorrect information, or at least in such a
definitive
manner. I should have stated that "it is not recommended" or that "yes,
while
you can physically pour synthetic transmission fluid and conventional
transmission fluid into the same %&!ing hole, it is not recommended".

Following is the "official" response from Castrol.

Thank you for your recent e-mail regarding transmission fluid.

Our conventional ATF and synthetic ATF are totally compatible with each
other
and can be mixed with no problem. However, we do not recommend this
practice
since you dilute the final product. It is very important to adhere to the
manufacturer's transmission guidelines.

Thank you for your interest in Castrol products.

Make sure you stay away from the heads for the trucks manufactured in the
early '80's. They were built for a 2 bbl carb and the ports are
somewhat smaller than other years.

If you still have the piece that broke off I would just use some J-B weld or
epoxy. that should work for you, it did for me.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Brake Booster and rough idle?

Here I go thinking again.... (uh oh) I have been having some real bad
problems with the idling of my 351W, and I just realized that since the
brake booster started leaking the idle has been bad. Before I screw it
up, I was wondering if I could pop off the vacuum line of the booster
and plug it when the engine is running. Should the idle come back to
normal/close to normal with the booster line plugged?

Thanks
Casey Vandor
