If the new tires are 32 inch instead of 31 inch then you will actually be
doing 62 when your speedometer says 60. The difference will increase the
faster you go for instance you will be going 10.3 when the speedo says 10, as
opposed to 103 when your speedo says 100 all numbers are mph. Really shouldn't
need to worry about it.

Hey Craig,

For what its worth, the last I remember I get a code 542 regularly because
when I run propane I kill the power to the pump and instead run it to the
propane lock-off solenoid. I have not checked my codes in a long time but I
will tonight when I get home and get back with you. I believe what sets the
code is when I flip over from one fuel to the other. This generates a
momentary lack of current draw on the line and the computer picks it up as
malfunction. But, if my rational is right, because the problem fixes itself
right away, it gets stored in continuous memory.

I have cut the wire coming off out of the inertia switch and route it to a
3-position switch. One position is gasoline, the middle position routes the
power to nothing (a good kill switch), and the third position routes the
power to the propane lock-off solenoid. This way my inertia switch will
activate even using propane.
When I pull my codes I always get the 111 pass, then in the continuous
memory I get the 542. I expect this because the computer does not see a
current draw (?) on the pump when switching fuels.

Also I have heard from a very credible voice of experience that unless you
enjoy removing your gas tank (is it full? if yes it might be easier to lift
the bed off the frame) use only the Ford replacement part, stay away from
the Autozone, Checker, and even NAPA brands. I know I know they use to shoot
the messenger of bad news, but I take this person's advice because I trust
him.

Not sure if this information is of any help but I felt it might jog
someone's else memory and get things going for you.

Subject: E40D probs. again  (what else is new)

About three days ago my E40D started screwing up again.  I narrowed it down
to being the torque converter and not the transmission.  What it does is when
the torque converter locks up after it shifts into drive, and you step down
on the accelerator a little it pulls this halfway un lock bullcrap and starts
shuttering really bad.  Bad enough to shake the dash.  When the converter is
unlocked in any of the gears it acts just fine.  I put a bottle of transX in
and it made a very noticable amount of difference.  The fluid is black as
coal and smells really burnt.  I always change it every 30,000 cause i pull a
big trailer.  Anyways, my question is, i am going to change the fluid (pan,
drain converter, and blow lines out) is there some kind of friction modifier
or something (maybe transX again) that i can put in there to help the
clutches in the converter hold better?  I just need it to last another month
or two until the new truck is in.  Any ideas or suggestion will greatly help.

                                                       Thanks,
                                                       Paul

Subject: Re: possible fuel pump problem/related codes


Sorry, I haven't been following this thread closely, but the symptoms
related below could come from a plugged catalytic converter.  I wouldn't
link them to the fuel pump(s) before checking other possible causes.
Also, since the problem seems independent of which tank/pump is used, it
tends to point in another direction...highly unlikely that both pumps are
experiencing similar/simultaneous failure.

Did you clear the codes and did they return?  There's always
the possibility it's an old code, unrelated to your present problem.

If the code returns, check the grounding of the PCM.  LOTS
of gremlins can be caused by poor grounding of the PCM.

Yes, the italian stallion no less, a Landi, with a Poliauto vapourizer.
A bugger to set up and the very reason nobody else but the original
installer will be the only one that will *normally* work on it. At least
it was more substantial, being of machined alloy, an improvement over
the $10 pressed metal versions. I think some of these mixers have had a
former life as Wok Burners ... I'm sure this is not going to come as any
real suprise to you but there are so many brands down here. Sprintmaster
is another setup that is easy to install.
MED are producing a 'variable venturi' LPG devise for
fuel injected sub 4 ltr vehicles. It performs well but is still a
compromise. Then, of course, if all else fails, the Good Ol' Spud
fitting. Geez, I'd love to know how it got that name !!!
There is even a locally manufactured product that is so close to being
a rip-off of the M&M vapourizer, you need a copyright lawyer to tell
the difference. The U.S. imported parts are suffering badly against the
fall of the OZ $$.

Even OZ Ford have seen the light ... I don't necessarily agree with

No, I wasn't dumping on impco, in this example, this was a very early
model and sat on a stack of adapter plates to get from the weeny mixer
to the 460 4BBL manifold. It looked crook. The truck was used by a
builder, hauling his kit around, and he never really saw a problem.
That engine ended up in a Cobra kit car with a 'real man's mixer(?)',
an M&M, no problem here now. Oh, the only other real problem is,
How do you keep the pointy end of an 1100kg vehicle, with a mildly
worked 460, on the road, and pointing forward at WOT operation ????

BTW: Marlyn Miller has to change her name. M&M's are little sweets in a
box, not a propane parts supply Co. The Over the Hill Gang (OHG) name
was so much more memorable.

Hey guys.

Thanks for finally getting back with me.  I was beginning to wander if my
e-mails were falling off a cliff somewhere.

I hear ya, Fred, on the Ford vs. AutoZone parts.  Its just that at half the
price, it's very tempting to go the cheaper route.  However, I'm more and
more leaning away from the pumps anyway.  It does make sense that if it
doesn't matter which tank I have selected, it has to be something else.
Therefore, this weekend I am going to complete all Troubleshooting
procedures outlined in chapter 4 of my Hanes manual on Fuel and exhaust
related systems.  I'm going to check every sensor I can find, relay I can
locate, and fuel line I deem worthy of my time.  I MUST GET THIS FIXED!

Bruce,

Yeah, I've checked the catalytic converters.  Both are fine.  They were one
of my first concerns (posted earlier as Catalytic Converters).  As far as
the continuous codes, I mentioned in another e-mail yesterday about how
current they are.  No I didn't clear them and re-run the test.  But I HAVE
to figure them to be extremely current and leading me in the right
direction.

Bob,

No, I haven't checked the fuel pump relay.  That will be on my list for
Saturday.  Just one question, though.  Where is it and how do I check it?  I
don't want to sound stupid, here.  I've just never been this involved with
my fuel system before and I don't readily see it in the manual (learning
more everyday....in some of my casual conversation, I actually sound like I
know what I'm talking about).

I took the truck out last night, guys, hoping and praying that the problem
may have somehow worked its way out (yeah right.....where's that lucky
town?).  Still, only when accelerating.  Although, I can STILL tell it's not
100% even at first.  I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about (we're
the ones that drive them everyday).  It HAS to be fuel related.  I can't
think of anything else.  I've been driving my wife's car for the last two
weeks and I must say "I HATE SITTING THIS CLOSE TO THE GROUND!".

Thanks again guys!  I'll keep you posted.  If you can seem to think of
anything else, let me know.  PLEASE!!!!!!!!

Sorry Mate,
There MAY be some tax incentives if you buy a new propane vehicle, but
you are supposed to pay the road tax here.  Let me put it this way, I am
considering converting a 86 F250 to propane. If I do, there WILL always
be fuel receipts in the glove box showing paid road tax.  The police
generally want to see them when they stop a propane
vehicle.

Running propane requires initiative and individualism, two traits that
are currently out of favor with our government.

If you just want to use a different fluid you may want to try the B&M trick
shift fluid. I haven't tried it personally, but I know a guy who uses it
religously. He loves it, says it helps run smoother and cooler. He could be
full of it, but it might be something to look into.

When I was running propane a few years ago, in texas you could buy a

That's one killer Bronco you've got there!!!  As soon as (whimper) I get my

ago (265/75/R15).  Not huge, but bigger than factory.  Lift kit will go on
soon (I hope).  Once truck is paid for, suspension lift is coming along with
16" rims and maybe even some 33s.

I've seen Rough Country 3" body lifts for $109.  I most likely will go with
this kit (for now since I just put over $500 into my truck).  Just need to
get a new fan and lower radiator hose.  Anybody know how much fans go for
and if bumper brackets or (bumper) spacers come with this kit?  I've noticed
in the pictorials that Daniel Lanteigne has a truck very similar to mine
(same year/color and in the same shape) except I have the XLT package and no
(whimper) lift.  Don't know if he's on the list, but he states that his
truck has a 3" body lift.  There are no spaces between the body and bumpers.
Must have brackets.

dad-bernit....I told myself I wasn't going to bring this up again until I
got the truck fixed.  Guess I can't get that awesome look off my mind.
Pretty pathetic, huh?

Awww, shucks. Thanks Craig, I've had a great time getting that truck to where it
is today. And I'll let you know it's a shade more than $500. If you want to see
a really nice one go back to the registry and check out my wife's. She's got a
'92 that is immaculate. It sits as high as mine. She's running a 4" suspension
and 2 inch body lift.

As far as your oil seal, the info I have says its a two piece, so you'll need to
lower the crank to replace it.

Thanks for the information.  Sounds somewhat non-trivial. Ugh.

Subject: Follow-up question, '81 F-150 Dual Tanks problem


I posted the attached note last week.  The only response I received was that I should check with my dealer because there had been a service bulletin or recall.  I talked with the dealer's service center today.  They said it is a bad Switching Valve between the two tanks.  Does this sound right?
Thanks again,
Bill P.

Original message:

When I put gas in both tanks, the gasoline always siphons from the back tank
to the front tank.  If I just use off of the front tank, it stays full until
the back one goes empty.
Recently, the truck was parked on my driveway with the back slightly higher
than the front (the back sits high due to overload springs) and both tanks
had gas in them.   Gasoline leaked from the white rectangular plastic
canister located just behind the radiator  (I couldn't tell if the gas was
leaking from the canister, or if it had only accumulated there until it
dripped off).  I removed the gas cap from the front tank and let it sit for
a while.  When I came back, gas was leaking out of the fill spout of the
front tank where I had removed the gas cap.
Ideas?  Any help will be appreciated.
Bill P.

I hear ya loud and clear, Bob.  I have many plans for my truck.  I've just
been spending the last few years trying to pay it off.  I'm a year away and
have lots of things I want to do to it as soon as I can start putting the
money in the bank rather than towards a loan.  I want a cab high topper with
all the trimmings (tinted windows, speakers and carpet rug for the little
ones, rear window boot) and possibly a moon visor.  Currently, all I have is
a diamond plated tool box with dual CB antennas (one on each side), running
boards with lights, bug shield, and matching rain guards.  Looks great at
night (in daylight, too....I just like the running lights).  I've asked for
bumper guards (just like on the front of your Bronco) for my birthday (from
Mom and Dad) to go with my lift.

Aw, man.  Just got back from the registry and looking at your wife's truck.
I will be most impressed if you tell me she did all the fixin'.  However,
'tis an awesome truck nonetheless.

Just a dreamin'
