well, yesterday i reinstalled my 160 degree stat and tested the 195
stat. the 195 stat was not opening until well after the water in the
pot came to a full rolling boil. so i take it it was sticking closed.
i know the temp gauge on my dash is at least close because when the temp
goes up, my oil pressure comes down from the oil thinning out. but i
have not yet heard the radiator fluid boiling even when the temp goes up
to the L. and beyond the temp going real high, the truck is running ok.
it is not detonating at all and in general seems to be runing pretty
smooth. it is running a little rough until it gets fully warmed up, but
i suspect that is normal. thanx to everyone that has helped so far.

I, personally, would not run a 195 deg. thermostat in this old of an
engine, unless you need it in Minn. in the dead of winter to give you
decent heat (and the engine would probably never see 195 degrees even
then). You seem to have jumped from 195 way down to 160. Why not a 180
degree thermostat? That's what I run in my 1980 I-6 and it seems to like
it. It should be warm enough for you in the winter and not too hot in the
summer. I know the emmissions are reduced some with the hotter thermostat,
but face it, this old of an engine was never going for any environmental
awards, even when new. Why put the added stress from the higher temp on
hoses, manifolds, oil, bearings, etc...

Does anyone know if this will work? I have a 1967F150. It currently has
blown 302EFI. I have a 351 police
cruiser engine with TBI. Everything is
intact. I also have the puter. It am having
trouble finding a 351 intake reasonably priced. I also realize that the
would have to be rearranged. Couldn't
I just use the TBI that is on the engine
if I disconnect the electric fuel injectors
and just use the mechanical one already
on the engine. This way I would only
have to purchase an exhaust system
and lubricants. The engine has a 4OD.
should be able to adjust it to work in place of my old C6. Anybody have
any feedback for me on this. Very much appreciated.
Wife's vehicle is the first we've had with air. A mech friend advised running the A/C once a week, needed or not, which we have pretty much done. Her car is 11 years old now and no maintenance yet and still works well.
Started the 1991 Aerostar yesterday. In Canada we have daytime driving
lights. The lights normally come on whenever the ignition is turned on.
This time they came on very dim. Turning the headlights on and off again,
brought the driving lights up to the light level they should be. Drove the
van for a couple of hours and now no driving lights at all. The fuse is
fine. Headlights are fine.
Any BTDT's that can point me in the right direction to getting these lights

Subject: AC hiss Update.
Date: Tue, 4 Jul 2000 23:09:29 -0400
Just an update on my ac hiss problem. I've noticed that the loud hiss
happens once in a while when either the ac or heat is on. I had the ac on
the other day but it just wasn't very cool, at least not how it was before.
Also, when I turned the radio down I could hear a clicking. When I got home
I found out that It was the ac compressor clutch pulsing
on...off...on...off. It sounds strange to me, as I can remember it only
clicked once when you turned on and off the ac, It didn't pulse at all
I'd appreciate any help...
