Hey guys.

I said I would update you on the findings of my most recent problems with my
'94 F150.  It's amazing....this truck has been absolutely wonderful up to
now.  However, I still love the truck and will most definitely invest in it.
About 6-7 months ago I was in an accident and it now appears as if I'm
REALLY paying for it.  Truck was restored and I've already signed off on the
insurance paperwork.  Now the bug has come back to bite me.  What I thought
had to be a fuel related problem turns out to be a bad transmission.  The
cause of the shimmying of the engine at 30 to 32 MPH is the engine shifting
into 3rd gear before it even reaches 30 MPH.  Tranny is also stuck in OD.
You can't just turn it off with the manual button on the column.  You would
have thought my friend Dave at the auto shop just told me I had a terminal
disease or something.  Collision was very hard ($7500 damage), but frame is
fine.  All parts replaced were new.  Unfortunately, about 6-8 weeks after
the accident, I noticed the transmission line had been punctured and tranny
fluid was spraying onto the serpentine belt and being thrown all over the
engine bay.  Hardly any fluid was lost as I found it right away.  Had it
sent back into the shop to have it fixed and they discovered that both motor
mounts were broke (replaced at their cost).  Oh Gee!!  Was I a happy camper.
What else could be wrong?  Seems the truck ran GREAT up 'til now (as that
was about 4 months ago).  However, engine has been inspected and is great.
I just wish it was so with the tranny.  Oh well....facts of life.  Needless
to say, my best friend and I will be getting a freshly rebuilt tranny and
torque converter and most likely be swapping them out this weekend.  If you
want it done right, do it yourself.

Thanks for the tips anyway, guys.  If I could only get ahold of the guy that
locked up his brakes four cars up!!

Later,
Craig Wallace

I've only seen a few of the posts on the oil pressure discussion but
just felt like I had to weigh in on it.  I understand it is a fairly new
rebuild- how many miles since the overhaul?  Is it making any other
strange or unusual noises?  Assuming the crank and rod bearings are set
up properly, my experience in this case is that the cam bushings either
were not replaced (depending on the level of overhaul) and are worn or
nicked/scraped when the cam was installed.  It really does not take much
to loose pressure there and difficult to diagnose.  I believe the first
thing I would do is put a mechanical gauge on it and see what the
pressure really is at different operating temps.  What weight oil? Good
quality filter?  Is it a standard pump or a high volume?

I agree with putting a real gauge on it to test the real oil pressure.  On
the 87 F150 4.9L truck I had before the one I'm driving now I had a similar
problem that turned out to be a bad oil pressure sending unit, after the
truck would warm up at low RPMs the oil pressure gauge would instantly go
from about 1/4 scale to nothing but I could rev the motor a little and it
would jump back up.  I checked it with a mechanical gauge and the pressure
was OK ( a little low because the motor had a lot of miles on it) replace
the sender and the problem went away.

I don't want to bother Ken about this, as he has GOT to be a busy, busy guy.
So, a question for anybody that has a ford-trucks.net e-mail account:

  How can I change the password that Ken assigned to one that I can remember
  easily?

Thanks,
