Hi Ken,
I guess that answers my questions as to me subscribing then
not getting any further instructions as to complete the subscribe
process. And to why I was getting no posts from this list.
It all came together this morning though....

New to list and will prolly have most of the questions that
have already been asked over and over again on this list.
That is unless there is an FAQ area that has most of that
info.
Do any of you have the 4.9 I 6 with a MotorCraft carb #
E5TE? I can't find that particular number in the Chilton
Manual for the trucks.
Thanks

Subject: Cold speedo error?

Here's a good one......

I have noticed several times since the "real" winter arrived that the
speedo on my 91 F-250 reads high when it's cold.

I was out after the first 20 degree night after I got the truck and the
speedo said I was going 65 on a road that usually 45 is the max on. Later
that day afer the outside temp came up into the 30's and the truck sat in
the sun, it seemed ok.

JUst last weekend, after another 20 degree night, I was out with a buddy on
the interstate when he asks me on the radio why am I only doing 55 when the
limit is 65? I had the cruise set for about 67!

I have the stock 235/85R16 tires on the truck, so I know it's not that.

The key seems to be cold soak overnight close to or below freezing and it
reads high.
When everything has had several hours to warm up, it's ok.

I'm suspecting the speedo head unit is the problem since the truck uses a
mechanical speedo.

My questions are...

Can the speedo be changed with out changing the odometer?
Can I do it or does it have to go to a shop?

I'm reasonably mechanically inclined, but since this may require tampering
with the odometer, are there legal issues?

Any body from Pennsylvania got any advice?

I can only assume that this post got lost in the 'crash' - no problem,
I'll repost.
If it is no longer relevant then delete it.


Hi Monte,
Does this sound like Real Serious Engine Blow-by?? ;-))
Well, start at the start, do a compression test both dry then wet, and
then post
the results back here ... Let us all share in the messy details .....
In the mean time, prepare yourself for possible major engine surgery.
