I have a 92 300 I6 that was getting warm at slow speed. Changing the fan
clutch seems to have fixed the problem. Hope this helps.....Good Luck

Subject: FTE 80-96 - 1989 F250 Lift Ideas

I am new here and I have a 1989 F250 XLT and I want to lift it 6 inches.
Who has the best lift and how much does it cost? Is it true that I have
4:10 gears stock, I have the 460/C6 combo. Can I fit 38's with the 6 inch
lift I have 33's now stock? Superlift wants $1383 For thier superrunner
setup does this sound right?
Thanks
Corey

much..

Geez Sorry!, I see by your original post you own an Explorer, I thought this
was a Ford truck list. I just assumed you owned a Ford Truck. I suggest you
stop confusing everyone and post to the correct list, (Ranger/Bronco
2/Explorer/Aerostar list: Send email to small-list ford-trucks.com
.) This is the 1980-1996 Truck list.

I don't own a SUV and have no clue about them. I have done this alignment
myself and did my homework, I suggest you do yours pal . . .

Funny! That's mine too, max and 2nd or 3rd fan speed (unless I go pretty
far)
And someone else said x mpg. 55 mph....drive that slow, and say goodbye
to your truck!
I don't know about you Jim, but 70 is SLOW anymore!!!! (and my truck is
HEAVY!)

I hope you and I meet some day!

Oh and 3k even was accepted for the '91...I'll have my hands full next
week!!!

I have no idea what gear ratio I have but the best mileage I have obtained
is 13.5 in my 85 F-150 300 I6. That was combined city / hiway driving.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Leaking A/C

OK gang, I have a leaking A/C and I need to know what I am facing. I don't
want to get into a major overhaul at this time but I don't mind changing a
few connections. In other words, I want to attempt a cheap and cheerful fix
for now. If changing a few connections doesn't do the trick I'll plan a
major overhaul for later.
How do you get those stupid connections apart. I believe they are referred
to as "quick" connects. I am using R134a.....
