most of the local junk yards in this area also carry new parts. You can call
aalmost anyone in the 4X4 magazines that advertise driveline parts. The axle
will cost about $75.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - (Fwd) Leaking Gas Tank

I've got an 1994 F-150 truck with dual gas tanks. The front tank is
leaking, VERY slowly. After a night of sitting, there is bearly a spot
on the driveway. I suspect that the leak is on top, either in the
hoses or seals but am not sure. The seams look OK...rust free and
dry. There is a bullet-nose shroud on the front of the tank, so I can't
get a good look everywhere.

How much trouble is it to drop the tank and have a look? Can I
drive it on the rear tank only, while I get a replacement (if
necessary) or parts or will the line pressure nix that idea?

Thanks.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - oil thru PCV hoses

Since my '87 F150 I6 Lariat was "tuned up" last June I have had nothing
but problems. My latest woe is from oil loss. Not burning, but blowing out
the PCV hoses. I had to take the truck on a drive down the highway, and over
the round-trip (600 miles) I had to add about 4 quarts of oil. When I stopped
at a highway service center to check things, oil was just running down the
wheel well by the air filter. I also checked the hose to the intake manifold
and the nozel was filled with oil as well; but I don't notice from the exhaust
any oil being burned. The PCV valve rattles when shaken (not stirred :) so I
assume its not plugged. The oil pressure gauge reading varies from less than
N to MA, depending upon its mood I guess ???

Any ideas ???

PETER

Oh ya, the place that did the tune-up put in 5w30. My manual says not to
use 5w30 unless the temperature is below zero degrees F. Could this have
caused problems? Of course, right after this the temperature never dropped
below 95 for weeks :(

Thanks.

A Harley passed me on the road while I was on my bike the other day, he
dropped a gear, revved it up, and floored it. I could have passed him in an
instant but Harley riders know I can have so it isn't any fun anymore.
Besides, as he just got in front of me he up-shifted and the shift lever
came off, hit the road and screamed by my left ear. (I think it was the
shift lever it could have been the brake!) I heard also they don't use pins
to hold the levers on. So I stay as far away from them as I can when I am on
the road.

Actually I would love to own a Harley, even though I bad mouth them, I hear
they fixed a lot of problems. The worst was the leaking. I heard that they
used to require several hundred dollars to stop them from leaking the day
you bought them. I just can't see paying that much for them though.

BTW, I saw a Ford truck with a white Harley logo on the topper window and
thought it would look cool on my white truck next to the white FTE sticker.
I stopped at a Harley shop and they claim that white ones don't exist, only
the standard orange and black.

Yeah I hear a lot of crap about my bike. I've never experienced the
problems you talk of, and I hope I don't. I used to have a Kawasaki. I
love the Harley more though. I've been saving for one for about 3 years
now, I feel its like having another kid. But I wouldn't change it for the

You remind us that we are not the only ones that think in this manner.
BTW, I forwarded your letter to her.

On the subject of Fords, I was privileged to a refresher course in U-joint
R&R this week-end on our '95 F-150 4X4 with +151,000 miles. The rear joint
started making some gut-wrenching noises 75 miles from home, had to baby the
truck back home. Wouldn't you know it, that's when everyone pulls out in
front of you, cuts you off, traffic back-ups due to construction (should of
invested in stock with the company that manufactures those orange
barrels!)... It was nice to do a job that went exactly as it should without
any major catastrophes and get the beloved truck back in running conditions
quickly.

This is still the best country to live in, just wait for the next
Presidential election. And if I were elected President, my limousine would

I also can't understand why a Kennedy gets such royal treatment. Do you
think the military would have gotten involved in a civilian aviation
accident if the media had not forced them to? People should take a close
look at what power the media has to control the government and look back in
history on how the media has always done so. Freedom of speech is one thing
but to use it for political control over the government is a crime. Those
who benefit over the media's political perspectives now think it is great.
But when the country is torn to shreds and people are forced into a class
structured society, where unless you have money you are nothing, like kings
and queens, things will not look so nice unless you are the favored few. Our
country is based on the belief that no single political party has the
answers and balance can only be achieved by equal and fair treatment and to
tip the scale one way or the other is an affront to this belief.

If you think the media can control themselves you are wrong. Never before in
history has the media had so many ways to broadcast their agenda. They will
not ever do anything to regulate themselves and absolute power corrupts
absolutely.

And that is the nice thing about U-joints, they will make all sorts of noise
before they go completely.

Before we get too carried away with the media's influence in the death of
John-John, remember that the incident occurred in the home state of the victim's
uncle, who is a very powerful U.S. Senator.

By the way, does anybody have experience with the PTO driven hoist on a F350
dump body? Mine is a WARCO on an '87. The problem is that the PTO engages OK,
but the body won't lift. It looks like there is extra slack in the cable and
maybe it needs to be taken up. If it is low on fluid, I have a real problem,
since the body needs to be raised to get access to the filler on the reservoir.

and Luke's trucks are 94s and they were equipped with Massair. I do know from
researching the Massair Vs speed density issue before I bought the truck, and
for a short time after, that the speed density system will allow a LOT of
mods, but only with a custom tuned computer chip. The stock computer will
allow 3-4 mods (ex. heads, cam, headers, throttle body) before the changes
made will be out of the parameters of the ecm's comprehension. I know
several Lightning owners that have blowers and are running sub 13 second
times on the stock speed density, but again, this is with custom programming.
The programming itself can run into the thousands of dollars depending on how
knowledgeable the programmer is. The Massair system will allow many more mods
than the speed density system, without any custom programming. therefore to
me, it would be a cost savings to go ahead and get the Massair.

That is an incredible, over-simplification of the facts.

The correct words should be "the media's influence in the search for
John-John's crashed plane" not his death. And that is my point exactly, this
very powerful Senator has influence over the press. John-John became a
journalist for the purpose of influencing the media. To say that a
Democratic family in the media business doesn't have influence over the
liberal media would be a lie to yourself, denial.

(That same senator managed to escape severe legal and political consequences
for his own actions. Thanks to his family's connections (which helped to
contain the inquest and grand jury) and to a nationally televised
"Checkers"-like speech broadcast a week after he drove Mary Jo Kopechne into
a lake and told no one for hours. And according to some accounts considered

Before we get too carried away with the media's influence in the death of
John-John, remember that the incident occurred in the home state of the
victim's
uncle, who is a very powerful U.S. Senator.

That is an incredible, over-simplification of the facts.

The correct words should be "the media's influence in the search for
John-John's crashed plane" not his death. And that is my point exactly, this
very powerful Senator has influence over the press. John-John became a
journalist for the purpose of influencing the media. To say that a
Democratic family in the media business doesn't have influence over the
liberal media would be a lie to yourself, denial.

(That same senator managed to escape severe legal and political consequences
for his own actions. Thanks to his family's connections (which helped to
contain the inquest and grand jury) and to a nationally televised
"Checkers"-like speech broadcast a week after he drove Mary Jo Kopechne into
a lake and told no one for hours. And according to some accounts considered
concocting an alibi for himself in the interim)

Like John-John Ted held no office but didn't have a powerful Senator to help
him out. So how did he manage to be treated differently? Got money? Got
media? You really don't think it was any other reason do you?

time to install is a little off ... also it does give about 2 1/2 - 3 inch of
lift . well worth the money !

I put one in 94 Mustang. It also had a power amp... But in the dash
there was a second set of stereo hookups that is the standard Ford style
without an amp. Whenever you use those everything works properly. I
would check and see if you have these in you Explorer. On the mustang
there were on the right of the compartment and had one of the those
plasic pull out screws holding them to a support bar.

I never would have thought of that. I would think that outside temp has a
great effect on these though. Although temperature is always related to
resistance, so it would effect the sending unit too. I guess they must be
accuate enough though.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you needed it.
I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.
