i have a 1984 351W with an edelbrock 600 manual choke carb,engine driven fuel pump. and after the truck sits for about 5 minutes after it has been driven and warmed up. it takes a lot of cranks to start it. I have tried it a lot of ways pumping no pumping holding foot to the floor and that just makes it flood out.
cold starting is EXCELLENT.
is there any suggestions.
i have recently had the top off and adjusted the floats but to no avail
any help appresciated.


thanks,
Joel Thomas

Hi All,

At different times people have asked about propane/natural gas/methanol etc.
You can read all about it on the www.ford.com site >environmental vehicles.

You can get an 'effie' with a 6.8 ltr V8 on propane ???? New ??? from Ford ??? I'd
like to see that !!!
I'd love somebody to check out the site, and comment on the *reality* of the
availability of ng & ethanol fuels.....
Sounds like your swimming in cheap alternative fuels....

.... I'm still having Fun anyway....usually in a Ford....;-))

Does anyone have a recommendation for radar detectors?

Right now I am considering the Valentine V1 (is it really worth $399?),
K40 portable (around $250 locally), and BEL 950 (I have not actually
seen one yet).

Let's not start a cop thread, or a civil liberties thread....

Have any of you ever noticed the white dots located in pairs around the
inside of the speedometer scale. Do any of you know what these marks are
for? I've noticed similar marks on speedometers in other Ford vehicles and
have always wondered what they're for.

Subject: Urgent Please - Lower ball joint info

I need a front left hand lower ball joint on my '86 Bronco 4WD. Sears
quoted me $50.00 a side labor. Should I let them do it, or tackle it myself?

I have replaced engines etc. so the difficulty doesn't bother me. I just
get the impression that for $50.00 it isn't worth the hassle of dismantling
the spindle assembly and I might be better off having a beer while some-one
else does it.

Any comments please?

Is there a good source for engineering and application information on
sparkplugs.
Something void of advertisement bs?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,
I'm looking for a 4" lift kit for my truck, a 1989 Ford F150 4x4. I need
a kit with radius arms, rear leaf springs, and 6 shocks. I've been looking
at lifts by Rancho, Superlift, and Skyjacker, but I'm wondering what lift
you guys recommend for my truck. I hear Skyjacker includes a new transfer
case crossmember, do I need one? Do I need longer brake lines? How does the
install go?

Thank,

Nelson

Are there any lift kits made for a 4x2?
I have a `95 F150 XL and would like to stick some 35" tires on the puppy to
get some more mudding ability

I think they are speed calibration points: the speedo input is turned a
specified RPM and the needle must fall between those dots to pass. I do not
recall seeing this discussed in the shop manual. Perhaps it is too specialized.
