looking to invest a few bucks (around 2,000 or so) into the performance

Thinking of possibly changing the spark pug wires and distributor and

I was wondering what would be the best parts to get, while trying to save
money to. I don't want to yank the engine out, but I do want to add "Bo;t

of my engine?

Also, I would like to add a sport package to it. I was wondering if the
package off the Lightning would wok or if someone knew of a better one. I
would also like to lower the truck to. Not slam it but lower it to 1) give
it a better looking stance, 2) so it can handle curves better and won't
have that "roll" in it.

What would be a good exhaust system to put on it. I was thinking maybe
some kind of H-pipe with Flowmasters. Any ideas or what brands to
get/look at?

It's a 93 Ford XLT. It has the 302 5.0 engine. I upgraded to BFGoodrich
tires. Otherwise, everything else is still stock.

If everyone would, either directly or over the list, give me ideas or
opinions and possibly what products to get, not to get.

BTW, I'm glade I'm back.

Mike,
Welcome Back!!!!
Now to your questions....on the chip, if you want instant gains from a proven
company, especially one that works closely with the trucks, its
HREF="www.superchips.com">Superchips. Their chip for our trucks runs
between $200-$300, but is a good investment due to the fact it can be
reprogrammed if you decide to really hop it up as I have. For Lowering I
would visit AIM industries . If you want to do
the front, I would use the Ibeams(2.5"drop), I have the 1.5" drop springs and
I am changing to the I beams. For the rear, you can use their spring
hanger/shackle kit to give yourself a 4" drop in the rear and level out the
truck. As far as eliminating body roll, you will need to upgrade or add
larger sway bars, front and rear, and some better than stock shocks. Opinions
on this list vary as to brand and such, but I run the top of the line
Gabriel's and I have had no problems. For ignition, you don't really need to
upgrade the distributor unless you are needing to spark some major fuel
requirements. I would add an MSD or
HREF="www.jacobselectronics.com">Jacob's ignition though. I felt some
pretty good gains from the MSD 6AL I put on mine, plus the plugs last a LOT
longer(until I hit the Nitrous Oxide!!!=D) As far as exhaust, Gibson and
Borla are good companies and Borlas million mile warranty is almost too good
to pass up, but you will pay for it initially. As they say, you get what you
pay for. I would also add a good set of coated headers to uncork the chronic
Ford exhaust bottleneck. Check with Summit,
they can give you a good overall listing of headers that will fit our trucks
and keep it treehugger friendly. Besides that, email me off list if you want
more in-depth info.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - 84 F150 EGR

Hello List,

I'm having a problem with my 84 F150 300 I6 and C6. It has a rough idle and
some hestitation with the pedal about 3/4 of the way to the floor. It has
vacuum leak problem written all over it, but I've checked and checked and
cannot find one. I've also retorqued my manifold bolts and checked the
timing. At this point I am suspecting the EGR valve. Do any of you know a
good way to test this. My Haynes manual says to use a vacuum pump, but I
don't have one. I was wondering if there was something obvious to look for.
Also the vacuum line going to the EGR valve is currently hooked to the bottom
of the carburetor, is this correct. This carb does not have the feeback
control wiring or sensors on it.

Also one more question, not to long ago some of you were talking about
spraying something around vacuum hose to check for leaks, with the vacuum
sucked it to the motor it would increase the idle identifying the leak. I
forgot what it was, and I didn't have any of the messages saved. Could
someone tell me what it was? I was thinking starting fluid but wasn't sure.
Any info and suggestions is much appreciated.

Thanks
Stacy

Start fluid, ether, carb cleaner; pretty much anything that will burn.

I have a 92 Flareside with the 4.9L. I'm having a problem with the ignition

and I have to turn it back to "run." It's like the spring mechanism isn't
always working properly. I had replaced the tumbler part of the switch

I'd appreciate any suggestions of what to check about why the key may stick

Hi All,
Has anybody have/had any experience with 'reduction gear' starter motors V's
Ford's 'Clapper' type offerings in V8's? It's the usual problem of hot soak
starts. Anybody had experience either 1st hand or antidotal comments, on the

These R/Gear starter motors are going for about $400aud, is it worth the

I've had this problem several times over the years. Once, it was a mouse
nest on the rod between the key lock and the ignition switch. Every other
time it was the switch itself. If your switch is as hard to get too as mine
(drop the lower dash and steering column), don't even try to rebuild it--new
ones aren't very expensive. Standard Auto had one in stock for my Bronco. I
think it was about $12.

My F250, 5.0 with 70k miles is having a problem with the oil pressure. Cold
and at 1500-2000 rpm, the oil pressure is fine. As soon as I stop, the
pressure drops to 0 and the engine light comes on. There is not rattling
normally associated with no oil pressure and I am not low on oil. Could it
be the gauge, oil pump or worse?

If it is worse, how tough is it to put a 351 in place of this motor?

Bill,

I looked for a class C on a Ford truck chassis recently, finally gave up and
decided to keep my trailer. The season for RV shows is nearly upon us. Take
Mom around to some of the shows and look around.

The vans are used for Class C rigs instead of trucks for 4 reasons.

1) Van cabs are shorter than truck cabs. More interior space in the same
overall length.

2) Van cabs can be ordered with no back wall.

3) Van cabs provide more headroom, allowing the cab seats to be swiveled to
face the coach at the same level as the coach seating.

4) People who fork over $40 000+ for a new motorhome rarely are the type of
folks who do their own maintenance, so they don't care about accessibility.

Maybe you can talk Mom into a 5th wheel, and use the truck to pull it. Also,
there are some tongue-type hitches on the market that blow egualizers/sway
controls away in the ease of towing category. They are a bugger to hitch and
unhitch, and not cheap, but the good ones rival 5th wheels and goosenecks in
towing ease with a much less expensive rig.

And you are VERY wise NOT to buy someone else's cobbled-up homebuilt. Unless
I knew someone really well, I wouldn't, either. Most people homebuild for
the financial incentive, using the cheapest possible materials and many
shortcuts. Not good. Very few homebuilders do so for aesthetic reasons,
i.e., that warm fuzzy feeling. I use the best materials for the purpose, and
much greater care and time than assembly economics allow. The REASON I
homebuild is I get a better product than I can buy for the same money.

As for industry certification, designs are certified, not individual units.
Check out what industry certififcation really means, and it's mostly common
sense stuff, like properly sized wiring and circuit breakers, UL listed
components, CGFI protection, installed smoke detector, materials quality
specs, and such. I don't know about you, but my workmanship on my own boats
and travel trailer beats what I've seen in factory-built equivalent units by
a long shot, and I've saved 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of factory units.

Case in point: my parents have been RVing for 50 years. They've owned
everything from Coleman pop-ups to Airstreams, VW bus to Bluebird
WanderLodge. They change rigs about every 2 years to match the type of
traveling they plan to do in the foreseeable future. Not a single rig was
without workmanship problems, and all were bought new. Some were downright
dangerous.

They currently have a brand new Jayco 5th wheel (their 6th Jayco in a row).
A plug-in wire guide came unplugged, allowing the 120V wiring to fall across
the edge of a stamped steel brace. Fortunately, the window seal was leaking
and the dealer's mechanic noticed the wire on the steel while he had the
window out. The insulation was already worn away, exposing the conductor.
Nothing wrong with the wire guide, just wasn't plugged in properly.
Certified design, poor workmanship. Both the electrical and window-seal
problems were poor workmanship.

They had even more problems with high-dollar Airstreams, Avions and
Wanderlodges (which cost 2 - 10+ times what a Jayco or Rockwood costs). More
dollars buys better materials and engineering, but not better workmanship.
They consider Jaycos and Rockwoods to have the best workmanship in the
industry. They have "no comment" about all the Fleetwood brands or Coachman.
Though they've owned several in the past they don't even consider those
brands anymore when shopping.

As for my own trailer, I built it about 20 years ago with plans from Glen-L
RV (Address below). Glen-L gives great support to their customers--way more
than the cost of the plans. I used the Malibu plans, but changed the front
dinette to a settee. This trailer has done the Al-Can Highway twice and the
Baja Penninsula once pulled by me, and was taken on a 3 year
around-the-world (pulled by a 79 F 150 4x4, 300, 4 spd, 4.56,
LT235/75R15LRC) by my parents. Four rigs started the trip. Three industry
certified trailers and two vehicles (Chevy and Dodge) literally fell apart
and had to be replaced.

Total for repairs due to poor workmanship or materials failure in 20 years:
zero. Never even a blown fuse. A brand new tire came apart and did some
damage to the wheel well last year, but that wasn't the fault of the trailer
design. Only changes from construction directions are 4 inch blocks between
the frame and spring perches (to match the ball height on a 4X4), double
rafters to support the AC, upgrade to 30 amp electric, epoxy adhesives and
bigger diameter screws.

YOU can easily build your own rig better than the best factory workmanship.
Use good materials, measure thrice, Take your time, and don't monkey with
the engineering. Glen-L provides the expertise you need to do it.

Oh, I think I understand. You insure the stated value of individual special
parts or components, but not necessarily the whole vehicle.

I was thinking of a situation where you may have a perfect example of a
stock vehicle that NADA Blue Book says is worth $8K, but you know it's worth
$12K, so you have a $12K stated value policy on the whole car. This is
where stated value doesn't work. I think I misunderstood what you are
doing.

Your property sounds great. Not only having all that space, but also
understanding and appreciating the history of the place. I've been doing
work on what's now a closing Navy base, but it started out life as an Army
Air Corp training base in WWII. I even have the construction and payroll
records. Amazing how quickly things can get built when there's a real
urgency. Many of the original buildings remain, and I find it hard to walk
around and not think of the number of airmen that went through and didn't

Since we seem to be on the topic of legality, I was wondering what is the
deal with clear tail lenses? Living in Vermont you don't see too much of the
aftermarket / custom scene, however there are a few people around who trick
out their car or truck. I've seen one or two where they have clear tail
lenses, however, I've heard these are becoming illegal. Anyone know as to
why this is? Also, does this apply to those red/clear combo tail lenses? I
found a decent listing at Godfather Customs
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.godfathercustoms.com) and I was merely curious. Thanks!

I believe that the lens color doesn't matter as long as the bulb is red and
shows red to the rear.....
