Pardon me for using your e-mail for something non-business related,
but this seems important enough

to share with all my friends and customers, since we all use e-mail.

Congress to Allow E-mail Charges

Please pass this on to all you know
Since many of us use e-mail for business and to keep
up with friends and family,
I thought you'd like to know the following.
Please jump on it right away and forward this to others.
CNN has reported that within the next two weeks Congress is
going to vote on allowing telephone companies to CHARGE A
TOLL FEE for Internet access. Translation: Every time we
send long distance e-mail we will receive a long distance
charge. This will get costly. Please visit the following web
Site and file a complaint. Complain to your Congressperson.
We can't allow this to pass. The following address will
allow you to send an e-mail on this subject DIRECTLY to
your Congressperson.

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.house.gov/writerep/

Pass this on to your friends. It is urgent!
I hope all of you will pass this on to all your friends and
family. We should ALL have an interest in this one. WAIT,
THERE'S MORE. IN ADDITION, The last few months have
Revealed an alarming trend in the Government of the United States
attempting to quietly push through legislation that will
affect your use of the Internet. Under proposed legislation
the U.S. Postal Service will be attempting to bilk email
users out of "alternate postage fees".

Bill 602P will permit the Federal Govt. to charge a 5 cent
surcharge on every email delivered, by billing Internet
Service Providers at source. The consumer would then be
billed in turn by the ISP. Washington D.C. lawyer Richard
Step is working without pay to prevent this legislation
from becoming law. The U.S. Postal Service is claiming that
lost revenue due to the proliferation of email is costing
nearly $230,000,000 in revenue per year. You may have
noticed their recent ad campaign "There is nothing like a
letter". Since the average citizen received about 10 pieces
of email per day in 1998, the cost to the typical individual
would be an additional 50 cents per day, or over $180
dollars Per year, above and beyond their regular Internet costs.

Note that this would be money paid directly to the
U.S. Postal Service for a service they do not even provide.
 The whole point of the Internet is democracy and non-interference.
 If the federal government is permitted to
 tamper with our liberties by adding a surcharge to email,
 who Knows Where it will end. You are already paying an
 exorbitant price for snail mail because of bureaucratic
 inefficiency. It currently takes up to 6 days for a letter
 to be delivered from New York to Buffalo. If The U.S.Postal
 Service is allowed to tinker with email; it will mark the
 end of the "free" Internet in the United States. One
 congressman, Tony Schnell  has even suggested a "twenty
to
 forty dollar per month surcharge on all internet service"
 above and beyond the government's proposed email Charges.
 Note that most of the major newspapers have ignored the
 story, the only exception being the Washingtonian which
 called the idea of email surcharge "a useful concept who's
 time has come" (March 6, 1999) Editorial. Don't sit by and
 watch your freedoms erode away! Send this e-mail to EVERYONE
 on your list, and tell all your friends and relatives to
  write to their congressman and say "No!" to Bill 602P.

 It will only take a few moments of your time, and could very well
 be instrumental in killing a bill we don't want.

 PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW WHO USES EMAIL
 REMEMBER THESE ARE TWO SEPARATE ISSUES THAT EFFECT
 ALL OF US ONLINE LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD NOW,
 NOT AFTER

Date: Fri, 11 Feb 2000 13:46:47 -0500

well gang(s), I got a good day in with my new toy. I know it's not a 78
but it is a truck after all :-) Put about 200 miles on it yesterday when I
took my wife to the dentist.....and to the outlet mall afterwards :-) Had a
little trouble getting the seats out to set up the portapottie and of course
we needed it on the trip.......

Got the seats figure out now and all is well :-) I really love it and so
does my wife :-) We'll be taking this to PF this year if nothing goes wrong
with it so look for a dark metalic green and silver extended 93 Aerostar
with FTE stickers in the windows :-)

Ordered the steel for my bench top yesterday and Mitchell's Welding cut and
bent the sheets for me to perfection. Now I have a "Z" shaped piece of
steel covering a 24" bench with 3/4" osb under it and 170" long, continuous
with a 3/4" lip in front to protect the wood and a 5-1/4" back splash in the
back to keep from losing parts or spilling oil into the wood etc.. This
will make an ideal white room to rebuild auto trannys or engines etc. with
easy cleanup. My part washer is right opposit the bench and blast cabinet
is at the other end of the room in the same relationship to the bench.....I
know, not very good idea for a white room :-) It is fully contained and
sealed so I don't expect much trouble from dust but when working on auto
trannys or engines I will refrain from using the blast cabinet during the
assy process :-)

For anyone interested, the blast cabinet is ABS, 36X24X18 or so and cost
$275 from Northern hydraulic.
The parts washer has a 280 gph pump, sits on a 30 gal barrel and cost $259
from NH and the 14 ga steel for the bench, cut and bent for me cost $90.
For the work I anticipate doing in this room I believe I've made some good
investments :-) The lighting in that room which is approximately 8'x15' is
one 8', 95 watt instant start dual bulb flourescent commercial fixture which
will work in below zero temps and easily lights up the whole room with
plenty of light to do fine work etc.. I used these same fixtures over the
lift or auto bay area and 4 fixtures light it up pretty well with a 12'
ceiling but I will eventually add one more, evenly spaced to get it up to
the level I think I need in a 24' bay so roughly every 5' or so, cross ways
to the bay. These fixtures are $45 from Lowe's and the bulbs are about $7
or so per pc. If anyone has ever tried to use ordinary shop lights in a
cold building you already know why I went this route. They are more
expensive but BOY! do they put out the light. They are dimmer in really
cold temps though but brighten up after being on a while. They still come
on instantly unlike my old shop lights no matter how cold it is, just dimmer
when cold.

My son's AOD is on the jack waiting to be moved into the "White Room" for
rebuilding as soon as I get the bench finished up, hopefully tonight.
Looking forward to a new adventure in AOD rebuilding and of course I will
keep Y'all posted :-)

Subject: Re: Rear Discs?

You might check Baer and Wildwood. I remember a thread a while back concerning someone who tried to convert his truck to rear discs with Stainless. He got frustrated with getting everything to fit (especially problems with the emergency brake cable) and they didn't work right when he finished, so he took them back off and went back to the drums. He stated that, on trucks, the rear brakes only contribute 10-20% of the stopping power anyway. Wildwood uses a second caliper on the rear rotor for emergency/parking brakes.

I always check when I get these emails. You beat me to it this time. :-)

Now, to get back to Ford Truck stuff, my '91 F-150 with dual tanks, once
again has the front fuel gauge not working. This has been an intermittent
problem, and I know that once it stops raining and I begin to trouble shoot
it, it will probably work perfectly again. That's the history of it with
this truck. Has anyone else had this experience?

Only thing I've done with them is double check the contacts at the senders
and on old vehicles this is often a cause for trouble. Clean the pin and
put some silicone grease on it and pinch the socket a little to make it
tighter and reinstall it and see if that helps. I've "fixed" quite a few
that way :-) Also twist it around a bit to clean off the contact area and
make sure it still fits tight, squeeze it again as necessary :-)

Casey,
Check to make sure the 'overflow' connections aren't leaking. I believe
this is what they are called. They are plastic T's which sit on top of the
injectors connected to one anther via rubber hose. Each plastic connector
has 2 o-rings under it. I have replaced these o-rings 2 times on mine. My
experience is not exactly like yours but the dsl was very hard starting
since air had leaked into the system. This check is as simple as looking
under the hood at the injector and see in any fuel is leaking. It will not
be squirting out - but will be wet.

Good luck,

I have a 92 F150 and you need a special tool to disconnect the lines from
the fuel filter. It's a round sleeve that slides over the pipe coming out
of the fuel filter and slides inside the end of the fuel line to release
some spring clips. I bought the tool (plastic sleeves in about 5 different
sizes) at AutoZone for about $12. You may be able to buy a better quality
version somewhere else but the one from AutoZone seems to work.

Before I had the tool I tried to pry the hose off the filter by sliding an
open end wrench over the pipe on the filter and prying againts the end of
the fuel line. I broke the wrench and the fuel line never came off.

In other words I recommend buying the tool!

Hope this helps
Chris

Hello everyone. I have enjoyed this list for almost a year now. I have
picked up many great tips and have definitely enjoyed a few laughs.
I have a 1987 F150 I6 4WD with a 4 speed manual with the granny gear (is
that the T18?)
I could use some help on a couple of items I have not been able to fix:
Stalling: My truck has a nasty habit of stalling just after I depress the
clutch and begin to brake. It will not stall when the engine is cold and it
gets worse if I am going downhill. Sometimes on flat ground it will recover
before stalling and just bounce between 0-1600 rpm a few times.
Constant high idle: The truck almost always idles around 1050 rpm. I have
done the usual...check all vacuum lines, clean the air bypass valve (IAC),
etc. The one thing I haven't done is check the EGR valve because I haven't
been able to get the return tub off of the valve (rust). Any tricks to
share?

Along with the maintenance items above I have done the following (within the
last 1.5 yr.): new fuel filter, pcv valve, O2 sensor, ignition module,
alternator. I have also repaired a ton of wiring problems (oxidized wires,
loose connectors, etc) and have improved some of the ground wire
connections. Which brings me to my final question....I want to make sure
that all of the ground connections are okay but I am not sure where they all
are (wiring diagrams sure don't show location) so any help here would be
greatly appreciated.

Jeez I guess I shouldn't have waited so long to post....I apologize for the
long message!!!

Thanks for the help!

Casey look at the fuel line next to the frame on the drivers side in front of the switch over valve, the plastic line is heat shrunk over the steel line. If this is wet, then that is problaby where your air is getting sucked in. Write to the diesel man below, he knows about how to trouble shoot a problem. Tom

He may be able to help you out on this.

The glow plug controller was replaced. As far as not getting intial fuel in the pump, if I let
is sit overnight, then go an crack the line in the morning and crank it, how soon should I
expect the pump to prime? It is a brand new pump also. Another idea I had is the wd-40 might
have been more combustible than the deisel and if I am not getting enough heat off the glow
plugs than the wd-40 gives it enough kick to fire and get the diesel burning? Like I said,
idea only......

Thanks,

It still sounds as if your not getting fuel on the initial start
sequence. When you spray in fuel (WD-40) it starts and gives the pump
time to "catch up" and take over. Perhaps the pump is bleeding pressure
off over time and needs a new check valve. I don't know enough about
diesels but all they need to run is fuel, air and compression. You have
two out of the three and have to manually introduce the third.

Probably not.

This is usually where it shows up first.

It is supposed to be closed, open with the throttle proportionally (to a
point) and then close again.

On your fancy computer controlled year, I think you have an actuator
solendoid controlling the vacuum applied to the valve, I'm not sure. I've
never worked on anything that new.

Do you know if you have a knock sensor? If it is not sending a signal, then
the computer will not know to retard the spark when it knocks. Something
else to consider.

Had I but known how RIDICULOUSLY easy it was to change calipers......
Dads got two "new" ones today, if my morning service call doesn't take too
long, mine gets some tomorrow!
His rotors were dark, and 4 month old pads were indeed toast! Parts store
said one rotor was just a bit warped. Hit those binders at 70, and tell me
it was a little bit!
Mine pulls a bit when heavy, and I feel warps too, so like I say, it's too
easy to put off any longer!

Can you answer me what you mean by a "real" oil pressure gauge.
I have checked my 90 bronco against a "real" gauge and it was very close.

ok you stated that patch panels are available for a 95 rear wheel openings.

All I can say is WHERE????????

The panels are around for pre 87's, but I have not seen then for post 87's.

I ended up buying the complete quarter panels from Ford. They are VERY
expensive.If you have a source for these POST 87 panels please post it.

Subject: Picture needed

The 1 bbl carb on my 86 F150 had been messed with somewhat before
I got the truck. What I am looking for is a picture of the right side of the
carb. On mine, there is a broken white plastic piece that is screwed into
the carb near the top. Where it has been broken, someone has inserted
a small screw. I don't have the foggiest idea what this is for.....
Does anyone have a digital camera that they can use to take a picture of
that particular carb, then send it on to me?
Thanks in advance to whomever that might be,

I have a 96 F150 with the 4R70W trans, and when I take off from a
stop-light, i get a "clunk". What can be causeing that? Is it in the
rear-end or the trans? I know on my 97F150 , they had problems with it
happening, but the lease was up so I didn't worry much about it. Also,
Am I correct in saying that the torque converter NEVER locks up on this
trans?
Thanks,

I think that is the NP435 (like mine) It's good for pulling logs up hills
and breaking chains in low range (Don't ask!) and I've heard its good for
pulling big trailers up really steep hills. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Well, its in my F-150 but I might have the wrong code, I'll check tommorow.
A trip "down under" to check might be in order too. Anyone know where on the
axle I should look? I seem to remember seeing a tag once but not looking at it.
Thanks

You could say that but it's supposed to :-( The line pressure is so low
that the clutches can't get a good bite so they slip and chatter after a few
miles unless you add some after market parts which increase the line
pressure for shifting etc. from Bauman Engineering and a few others like Art
Carr I think.

Some say it locks in third but my experience says it only locks in OD since
that's were it chatters every time it shifts. In third it makes another bad
sound that sounds like a valve in the muffler or cat or something flopping
back and forth, doesn't sound like the tranny but it could be.......where's
that mechanic that likes to ride under the vehicle when you need him???

Tag is always mounted on one of the cover bolts in the diff housing if there
is one.

Later gauges are nothing more than on/off switches....if the sender is
sending "some" kind of signal they are on but if the signal dies they are
off so what you see is a designed in value for "on" not the actual pressure
value. Mechanical or electrical aftermarket gauges are accurate and
actually tell you what is going on.

In a 90, E-150 for instance with a 302 you could be running as little as 7
psi and still show a little over half way on the gauge but below 7 psi the
gauge shows zero and at 30 psi it still shows a little past half way, the
same location as 7 psi. I don't know what year they changed the system but
somewhere around 90 it changed.

Gauges before that had some function but were still not especially accurate
due to the cheap mechanism used to drive the needles and wide tolerances in
the voltage supplied etc.. They were never intended to be especially
accurate but to give you a "clue" as to the conditions present. Real gauges
are much more expensive and somewhat more accurate but most of us don't
really need all that much accuracy to determine the state of the engine so
they are good enough for most owners. Enthusiasts OTOH like to have a
better insight since they are also doing their own work etc. so after market
gauges are a booming business. I personally intend to set up a fully after
market dash in the bronco one day but the $300 or so for the gauges is
somewhat daunting for something that is not a real necessity :-) Wouldn't
it be nice if someone like AutoKrafters made a nice billet dash for 78/79
ford trucks? I see them all the time for chevy stuff but ford stuff is just
not out there, we have to make our own. I've been planning this a long time
and have worked out several scenerios using aluminum plate and hole saws to
cut the holes but the speedo and tach are a little tougher to do and do a
neat job of it. Saw the turn signal LED's I want at radio shack last night
(you could get lost in there, browsing :-)) and the bright LED too :-)
Picked up a rheostat for the electric choke last night but that's another
post :-)

I'm one of those guys who is not impressed with plastic trim on the dash and
will eventually eliminate all the stock junk and try to make up a nice metal
replacement to fit the stock radio and heater controls into and even the
glove box and perhaps still use the original dash pad on top, not sure how I
will do that yet. Right now my door panels are flapping and all broken up
and the plastic dash parts are cracked and broken and flapping in the breeze
so replacing them will not be a loss IMNSHO :-) I'd really like to design a
roll cage into the mix when I do it too but DOM tubing is expensive and I
still have to buy the bender and ......and......and.......Anybody else
having as much trouble getting up to speed with their projects as I am?
