Off Camber Crawlers 4WD Club (OCC).

You and your club members and associations are invited to our 1st
annual Swap Meet. Hopefully, you have started collecting those parts
clogging your driveways, garages, sheds, foyers and basements. OCC will
hold
it's first Off Road Parts Swap Meet on Saturday, August 26th (that's
right-next Saturday). It will start at 9 and end at 5 and is free to
anyone
wishing to get rid of 4 wheelers, parts and accessories. It's being held
at one of our member's (Paul Krupe) office parking lot in Jessup, MD.
Here's the address:

Elite Spice
7151 Montevideo Rd
Jessup, MD  76028

It's located 1/2 mile north of Rt. 175 on Rt. 1.
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.mapquest.com/ is a good place to get directions with the
address
above.

Do you mean the EGR or the Air Pump?

Removing or disabling the EGR (The Exhaust  Gas Recirculator valve) will
cause driveability problems as the cylinder temperature can get too high
without the recirculated axhaust gasses.

Removing the belt driven Air Pump has little effect other than failing
emissions. The air pump injects air into the exhaust to allow unburnt
hydrocarbons to properly burn in the catlytic converter. The only potential
I can see is it may upset the Oxygen (O2) sensor and cause a leaner mix.  I
dorve my '86 302 without the air pump when it seized for nearly a year,
unitl the emissions test was due again.

Hope this helps.

The other day while driving with the AC on at about 50Mph, I pulled the
truck into 2nd gear and stood on it, it pulled well but I noticed a pinging
from under the hood. Thetruck is an 89' F250 ext cab longbox with K&N
hi-flow air, a superchip and new cat-back exhaust, 351W, C6, and 70,000
original miles. All ignition components are basically stock but all recent.
No smoke.
A not on exhaust: Somebody said that the ext cab trucks had the single in
single out cat, not neccesarily true, mine has the 2 inputs with the single
out, and there is only 1 cat. when I had the exhaust done they removed the
stock restriction from the tail end of the cat, added a high flow turbo type
muffler and 3" mandrel bent pipe, coming out in the stock location behind
right rear wheel. Sound great, not to loud, and not to quiet. The
performance increase was instantanious and satisfing, total cost at local
shop was $220. I also always run hi-test gas as this is what the superchip
requires. I am still not convinced that the chip is all that it is cracked
up to be. Suggestions on the ping would be greatly appreciated.
On a different note, I hope that the format used on list #174 is not going
to be the norm, it is hard to find the subjects, and with a slow internet
connection it is areal hassle to go to the website for the post's.
And I agree friend don't let friend vote Democratic. If Gory Al gets
elected, we can all say good bye to the trucks we Know and love.

All the air pump does is inject fresh air into the exhaust system.  You will
see increased emissions (according to the sniffer) but it will not affect
how the engine itself, runs.   The EGR is a different system altogether.

What are the tell tale signs that my u_joints are going bad? So far I
isolated the problem to the rear of the truck(removed Front drive shaft). It
is making a squeking ratteling sound only when in gear. I thought that
u-jounts going bad made a clunking sound?.

Thanks in advance

Rear U-joint went out on my '94 F150 4WD last year.   Classic symptoms -
vibration felt through the floorboard when the driveline is under load
(especially at highway speeds), not so much a squeaking-rattle noise but a
low whine that matched the vibration, and distinct popping (clunking) at
parking lot speeds, especially in reverse.

That is what I thought, my truck does not display the common symptoms of
u-joints going bad, so I am baffled at what could be wrong. It only does
this when in gear and the harder I get on it the louder it becomes. There is
not a noticeable difference in performance.

The increased air helps the cat burn more efficiently. You can run without
it, but run the risk of clogging up your catalytic converter, especially on
an older motor.

    I have a 92 F150 and when I pull the headlight switch, the parking
lights go on but not the headlights.  Now if I use the Flasher (pulling on
the directional) they come on and stay on till I turn off the switch.  I'm
thinking bad ground somewhere, possible switch...  any Ideas?

Subject: Re: Battery size

Hello,

I managed three retail battery locations in (HOT) Phoenix, AZ and always
instructed the sales people to sell and install the heaviest-duty
battery possible to fit a vehicle. This cut down on battery adjustments
tremendously!

Moral: You want to install a battery with the largest cranking amps
possible; you won't hurt your vehicle and you'll insure that you won't
have problems in the future because of an under powered battery.

Think of all the accessories that are on a vehicle today. You need that
extra edge!

Ken Justice
