Hello again,

I just ignored it and drove on! My '86 had 150,000 miles on it when I
sold it and it was still running very well despite the noise at times.

Well, Jim, if you would let me know I'd appreciate it. My Uncle looked
at it a little bit this weekend. I mentioned that I thought it was a
valve so he took a leaf, put it at the end of the tailpipe, and watched
it. He said that if it where a valve gone bad, then the exhaust would
suck the leaf back into the pipe, but it didn't. Also, I put new plugs,
wires, cap, and rotor on it, and now I got some of my wandering idle
problems back. They aren't as bad as they were, but it's there again.

Jim, care to explain how your going to go about the Marvel Mystery Oil
trick?

Subject: ADMIN: Old magazines

Gang,

I was recently contacted by a lady whose father passed away. He
left behind a large collection of magazines and she thinks it will
be a shame to throw them away (and I agree). She's trying Ebay,
but regardless of whether she can sell them, she doesn't want them
to go to waste.

As many of you know, old magazines contain a wealth of information
that can be hard to find otherwise, especially for those of you
who are restoring a truck. Some of them might be collectors items
too.

Here's a list of what she's got, please contact her for specific
issues:

Things never happen like you want them when you send the "other half" to buy
automotive stuff.

This stuff says its nontoxic to animals...BULLS**T. I used this stuff
religiously for over a year. Then I went to my buddies house to use his
garage for a head gasket replacement. He HAD 3 puppies. When he drained the
antifreeze, it went into a little gully that ran past his dog pen. The
littlest of the pups drank a good bit of it before we noticed. As a habit, we
didn't let the animals get near the stuff, even with the nontoxic label. When
we saw him drinking it we freaked, ran out there and pulled him out of the
pen and rushed him to the vets. He died about 9 hours later. He didn't want
to pursue the lawsuit issue, but I tried as I seemed to be more upset about
it than he did. Without the backing of the pet owner it didn't fly.
Yes, it is compatible with the other brands of antifreeze, but why use it due
to the HUGE price difference between that and the other brands, take it back
and get the cheaper priced stuff. Sorry to burst the bubble.

It depends on which valve is sticking and when. I think I have a sticky
exhaust valve not seating, so when the plug fires, I get a "push" sound out
the exhaust.

If you have Idel Air control or somethiong like that, check it for clean
and proper function. Check all over for vacuum leaks. That will get things
wandering and misbehaving. I found an old rubber cap on a vacuum port
Saturday that was rotten and leaking. It really cleared up a bad idle when
I replaced it.

I have an 1981F150swb,I6,4x4,4spd pickup.

I need to find the position of the engine and chasis numbers where it is
stamped onto the engine and chasis respectively.The info is needed to get
the vehicle through the local roadworthy test.

Thanks

James
