I have an '82 F-150, and the temperature gauge has went up on it. When
you start it up it moves up to the "C" line. First, being the truck is
almost 18 years old, I changed the thermostat, even though it runs
flawlessly. Still the same thing. So I'm guessing it's the gauge, anyone got
any tips how to fix the gauge? Everything is in perfect working order, and I
can't stand not being able to read the temperature gauge. Any help would be
greatly appreciated. thanks.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Gas tanks again

I ended up having to replace BOTH gas tanks, because both were rotted
out. The rear one was a b***h. I had to remove the class IV receiver,
the tire, and cut off the Dynomax tailpipes (sounds pretty good with the
pipes cut off 3" behind the muffler!). The spare tire doesn't look too
healthy... the rubber sort of bulges where it was in constant contact
with the gas.

I ended up just calling my NAPA guy to get the tanks, since I have an
account there, and I have no time to go shopping. The cost: $110 for
the rear, and $125 for the front, plus I bought new straps.

I guess it's time for the brake lines to start blowing. Time for some
black duct tape on the rear fenders, tailgate and hood, too.

It probably is working but if the truck routinely starts quickly and is
driven regularly, it doesn't need a high rate of charge. Try leaving
the headlights on and the fan motor on high for about ten minutes with
the engine off. When you start the truck, it should then show a
charge. Make sure you do it near a charger in case it fails to start.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - An 84 F-350 w/ a crummy motor

I have a 84 F-350 w/ a 351W. It has 129,400 miles on it and the oil pressure
is doing some weird things now. When its cold and idling, the pressure is
between the r and m on the guage ( L \ \ NORMAL/ / H )as it warms up,
idle pressure goes down to where the needle is on the bottom edge below the
N. In stop and go driving at low speed, it goes up to the R, but holding 65
on the interstate sends it back below the N. It has a 4-speed w/ granny
gears, 4x4 so it runs 2800 rpm at 65mph. If i come to a complete stop after
going on the interstate, the pressure will fall even more. I went to 20W50
after 10w30had it dropping below the normal range when I got it (back in
february). This is really annoying becaus it is so erratic, every time I go
out in it I wonder if I'll get back. The 20W50 has made it REALLY hard to
start when cold, barely will turn over, then dies, etc.. Also it has
started backfiring recently, if it's cold and i bring it up to 2500 or more
RPM on the road and then let off the gas It'll backfire something awful, so
bad it cracked the right side manifold. The ignition timing is perfect, and
the carb seems OK.
Also,this thing has a strong vibration at 35-50mph, in both 3rd and 4th.
One final problem- this stupid thing never will warm up, the temp guage has
entered the normal zone only once, when I was going about 90 in July, it
reached the N. The heater works good, but takes forever to start working.
Should I just rebuild this old motor, or do you think ti might have a few
more miles left in it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Thoughts on Building a 460

As I could probably never afford to give my dad a new truck; a future plan
of mine is to give him a rebuilt engine. He uses his truck for occasional
towing a 28 foot fifth wheel, and running around town. I would like to get
another 460 block and start the rebuild a couple years ahead of time before
the engine is "Needed"
Now, I'm not a "radical" rebuilder but I do like to bump up the spec's a bit
when doing the job. Normally the rebuilds are needed to get back onto the
road and money is short so the most I usually do is put a RV cam in it.
On this engine I plan to get sealed rings, 3 angle valve job, port and
polish the heads, Balance and (possibly) blueprint. Other possibility's are
bumping up the compression with domed pistons(how much is reasonable); an RV
cam (worried about it effecting the Fuel Injection computer) and roller
rockers.
As one of the most important things is reliability, it can't be too radical,
but I know some of these things help squeeze out performance and MPG if done
right.
What are some of your opinions on building a "dream engine" if you had the
time and money, and weren't trying to show off at the main street stop
light, (but still wanted a little "pep")

Subject: Re: FTE 80-96 - AMP GAUGE

For what it's worth....

First I'm assuming that you have an actual D / | \ C type ammeter, not the
voltage gauge that my 91 F-250 has.
Easiest way to check if you're not sure is if you have a REAL ammeter, you
won't have a battery idiot light. If you have a battery light, it's not
likely a real ammeter.

On my 85 Ranger, which has the real thing, it never moved.
What I found was oxidation on the flex-board on the back of the instrument
cluster.

To fix this, remove the cluster, then polish the area where the harness
connectors plug into the cluster.
Use a piece of the green scotchbrite stuff. DO NOT use sandpaper, or steel
wool!! I got my scotchbrite at a hardware store, you could probably find it
or similar stuff at the supermarket or a dollar store in the kitchen
gadgets area.

It's very inportant to not use anything real abrasive as the copper coating
on the plastic flexible circuit board can be damaged easily. Steel wool is
a no-no for obvious reasons -- electronics don't like stray metal where
it's not supposed to be.

I would not use any kind of solvent cleaner either, as I have seen those
types of cleaner reduce some plastics to goo.

The ammeter works with low voltage/current in this application and a little
oxidation introduces enought resistance into the circuit to mess upthe
operation of the guage.

My Ranger, when it is started goes up into the Charge area for a minute or
so then slowly fall back to the center.

I'd run a compression test to see how the rings are holding up. I'd pull the cap
off the distributor and turn the crank by hand and see how much play is in the
timing chain.
Third might be a leak down test on each cylinder.

130K, that 351W, if not abused, should be getting it's second wind about now.

Adam,
Got an 84 F150 with a 351W. Mine started doing the same thing with the oil
pressure at about 150K. Your main bearings are worn. I tried everything
you did and it didn't help. Since the top end is still in relatively good
condition, I opted to drop the oil pan and change the darn things. While I
was at it, I replaced the connecting rod bearings and replaced the stock oil
pump with a high volume one. Did the trick. If you plan on doing this,
keep in mind that unless you pull the engine it's going to take you a couple
of weekends to do it right. And getting the oil seals on the pan to stay in
place while you're putting it all back together is a b**ch!

Check the smog pump (air injection system) on the backfire problem, sounds
like it may be leaking. Mine "fell off" a few years ago, and it severely
backfired until I got everything sealed.

Have you checked your thermostat? That engine should have a 180 deg stat.
Could even be the cause of the backfire (TVS's not opening).

Hope this gives you a place to start. Believe me, the 351W is NOT a crummy
motor!

If this is true, then I think your truck is wired wrong. The guage is only
supposed to indicate amps going INTO or OUT OF the battery. It is not
supposed to show total current being used by all devices.

Headlights on with engine off will show where needle goes for about 10 amp
discharge. A 10 amp charge would be about this same distance to the other
side of center. The 100 amp alternator is good to put a lot of power out
for accessories, but you do not want to put that much into a battery.

Normal operation after starting your engine is for guage to show slight
charge. After about 5 minutes of normal driving it should be back to center.
