After having more time with the truck over the last few days, I think I'm
gonna jerk the Edelbrocks off and send em back. The seem to mush out the
little bumps but railroad tracks or pavement bumps seem to make the truck
bounce like there are no shocks on at all. Yesterday I rapped some tracks
hard and I wound up half in the other lane. Now like you I guess I need
some advice.

Les
One other thing I forgot to mention is that when I replaced the shocks all
the shock mount bolts were worn. You can't buy replacements for the front
from Ford unless you buy the complete shock. I'll save you from the desire
to choke the counter monkey, look for the grade 9 metric from a hardware
store. Make sure the shank is the correct length.

being that a 1981 is probably the same chassis as my 1989.. if it is a 2WD ,
do you have available the ears that are riveted into the frame that the
strut bars bolt into? If ya do how much are ya lookin for them ? Also
please give me the part number so I can compare to the ones that i have on my
truck that are a bit screwed up and make sure theyll fit.

While i agree with what Jom says in his response.. you also need to inspect
the block especially when you take the head off.. sometimes the block cracks
and it will do the same thing if you only replace the head.. the cracks can
be very small and thin, so look carefully.. You need to do this even iif the
head gasket is blown.. cause sometimes the trouble is two fold

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Soapbox

I have been asked to leave a store.
I have been followed around a store when I am the only white person in
a store "of color". Who cares? It's human nature to be suspicious of
differences.
I have been denied many, many jobs, but I know it's a numbers game; I
don't take it personally. IN FACT, I have actually hired people who I
LIKE over the most on-paper educated!

I have had groups of youngsters cross the street to avoid me, but I
don't blame age discrimination (I'm 53). I realize we all have our
preferences, and I don't take it personally...it's my problem if I do.

Having lived in DC area for a long time, I have been disliked because I
am a white boy, and, guess what...I don't really care...so what?

Now living in the Shenandoah Valley, I am "discriminated" against
because I'm a "Yankee"....who cares? I'm over that...that's human
nature at work, to protect against intruders on any level, overtly or
covertly, plus I'm not a crybaby. I actually LIKE people who have some
standards, even if they're pointed at me...at least they stand for
something, a unique thing in this society.

Having worked in majority colored areas, I realize first hand it's tough
to be the minority, but, come to think of it, I don't see the Orientals
complaining!! Why?

Yes, I do have the right to talk about race relations....this is still
the USA, last time I checked. That is what makes our country great.
You mean, I can't have a position on abortion because I have not
experienced it? Get over it. You must be a PC Democrat (not intended
to be an insult, please), because that's their line..the..."if you
haven't experienced it,etc." thing. Keeps the masses in line.

You can make a guilt trip on anything, if you fall for that:
EX: So, you have a red truck...what's the matter, don't like black?
Hmmm, a Chevy engine...don't like Fords?
A Toyota engine in a Ford? Hmmmm..

As silly as these examples are, they prove that we all discriminate in
many ways daily, and, if someone wants to turn it into a guilt trip,
someone will fall for it.

I have a showroom in my business. We close Saturdays at 2PM. At 1:59,
if a white/oriental family walk in, we tell them we're closing. Usually
no problem.

If a black family walk in, I let them shop. Why? Think about it...I
don't want to hurt any feelings, but, to be honest, if I tell THEM we're
closing, it's "subtle signs of racism"...I have had this happen more
than a few times and am told so by them...whereas, the other groups
usually get a grasp on reality and check the time. Who's fault is it if
every group doesn't check the time? Think about it.

Just my 2 cents.

The Show and Swap meet in Michigan is July 31 and August 1 of this year. The
show is at the Wayne County Fairgrounds, located at I-94 and Belleville Rds,
in the city of Belleville. It is about 15 minutes west of Ford World
Headquarters, the Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum. There is a
campground on site, and a KOA Campground about 10 minutes west of the area.
It is also about 5 minutes west of Detroit Metro Airport DTW. There are a
lot of hotels/motels nearby. If anyone needs more info--email me. I live in
the local area.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Problem - 91 F150

I have a problem with my 91 F150. It has a 351 and E4OD tranny.

After numerous visits to mechanics (including ford service centre), amount
of money, and time hooked up to an analysis computer I still I have the
problem.

While driving 60 km/h, 3rd gear, and 1500 rpm the truck feels like its
hesitating/stuttering. It also appears to have trouble deciding which gear
to stay in at that range. In addition, the shift out of overdrive is a lot
more pronounced than it was before the problem started, and I can drive
45km/h and never touch the gas pedal.

Any help with this would be greatly apprecaited. I'm willing to listen to
anything suggestions/guesses right about now.

Thanks in Advance

Subject: FTE 80-96 - RE: MAP sensor

Todd, someone on the list surely knows more about this than
I.....however the Manifold Absolute Pressure(MAP) switch essentially
measures barometric pressure vs. your intake manifold vacuum. It knows if
your changing altitude or if it's a stormy day. It compensates the fuel
amount in my Feedback controlled carb on my 85 F150. When it misreads the
barometric pressure, the truck either runs too rich or too lean most of the
time. Hope this helps. Walt
