I changed my oil pressure switch and my pressure gage jumped back up to
above half where is use to be, of course this may not be your problem, but
its a cheap try!

Is there any special way to bleed a brake system that has ABS? Should I
have the truck running when bleeding? Do I need to bleed at the ABS module?

Pass -- I-70 Tunnel -- Vail Pass -- Colorado>>
I feel for you guys "Up There" I drove over those passes one day with my 92
F-250 w/351 and a slide-in camper on it. I don't know how long I would have
to drive in that altitude to get the computer to tweak itself, but one
afternoon wasn't enough. All I know was that I was flooring it to go down
hill. It felt like that area doesn't abide by the rules of physics.

Just put in a quart of oil about a week or so ago that should be fine.
I got 89 F-150 v8 302 efi 4x4. Any other info you need?

Bob, what size primary jets does your 4180 have in place? Is it possible
to go one or two sizes smaller on the primary jet sizes to lean it out
some? How does it do under "normal" conditions? Is the iside of the
tailpipe colored gray or black? I have the reverse problem with my
(similar truck,same carb) rebuilt Holley.I suspect the primary jets are
too small,and was curious as to what size yours were for comparison
purposes.I haven't pulled the front bowl and looked yet but that's
next,along with an accelerator pump cam replacement.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - F250 with under drive

Hi! I live in Wichita, Ks, I was courious about your under drive. What
is your rear end gear ratio? What final ratio do you have with the
underdrive? I been running a 79 F250, 460 w/410 gears. Got plenty of
power most of the time. I usually pull a one car gooseneck, but
sometimes I'll pull a 30' gooseneck with about 17 round bales of hay and
it groans pretty hard. I have a 81 F250 with a 400 in it with a bad
valve. I'm doing some soul searching on either putting in a a HO351W or
a 460. I have both sizes on hand. Will the HO351 get better fuel
mileage, would it have enough power to pull a car trailer 70mph. I know
the 460 will do this, but getting about 8mpg.
Any thoughts will be appreciated, Tom

Ok, so I'm slow ;-) From heading to the basement to get the tools to
finishing my shower and firing up Linux, it took me about 1:15. Not too
bad.

But why is one 1/2" and the other 9/16th? Start one off, try the wrench
on the other and &*&*$#$ ???? Crawl out from under the truck (and now
it's raining and the ground is even more wet). Get the right socket. Not
bad at all.

That's one king-sized starter, for sure. Thanks for all the help,
everyone.

I don't have: lower manifold ($325 from B&M)
upper pulley ($117 from B&M)
Lower pulley ($65 from B&M)

In other words, all I've got is the charger.

$500, OBO

Again, in other words, supercharge your truck for less than $1100.

Also, buy the charger, and I'll throw in a MSD BTM.
(note, not a 6BTM, just the retard box)

From: Ben Craig
Subject: FTE 80-96 - 302 vs. 351W

hi all,

I am thinking about switching my '85 F-150 from a 302 to a 351W. I am
wondering if I can get a long block 351W and just switch things straight
across from my 302, intake manifold, distributor, pan, valve covers. I
think I read somewhere that the 351W takes a wider intake with a different
bolt pattern than the 302, but I don't know for sure. Any info you can
give me would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to end up having to buy
a bunch of new parts for a 351W because the ones I have won't fit.

Thanks for your time
Ben
