I second that, had the same problem with mine some years ago. You may also
want to take the carb off and replace the gasket that is in between the base
and the carb.

Another think you might want to check is your intake manifold bolts,
sometimes these will work loose and cause a vacuum leaking creating idling/
running problems.

AH!  Noise Suppressor!  I knew that's what it did, the correct name just
never came to mind.  Thank you all for your replies.  Aside from my
latest test and quiz I took at school in the last two days and didn't do
good on, I'm really feeling kinda stupid right now.  Thanks for all the
help.  I'm just suprised none of the parts people realised that I didn't
have a condenser in my hand.  I guess I'll have to go back and show them
up.

And now a third on the loose carb.  Those 1 bbls are famous for coming
loose from
the body.  Take the carb off the manifold and you will see that it is held
to the base
plate by 3 screws.  Remove screws, clean threads,  coat with thread-lok and put
back together.  Problem more than likely solved.

Justin,

Have you checked the high speed idle cam on the choke ?  It could be gummed
up or sticking, as well, if the choke cap is not getting juice, the choke
may not be heating up and keeping it on the low position of the choke cam.
I would check here first.

Date: Fri, 10 Nov 2000 08:23:09 -0700

Greetings all,

I'm starting to gather up the nerve to do the clutch on the truck before it
forces the issue.  I have a 1980 F-250 4x4 and am wondering which is a
better approach -- pull the engine or drop the tranny and transfer case.  I
am also planning on replacing the engine seals, front and rear.

Which is easier to do, drop the tranny and transfer case, or pull the
engine?

Thanks in advance.

Chip

Drop the tranny, it's a lot less bolts, brackets, wires, etc.

Subject: swing away tire carrier
Date: Tue, 14 Nov 2000 13:13:41 -0500

Howdy,

I've got two Ford trucks.  My daily driver is a 1990 Bronco XLT.  My basket
case is a 1987 F250 (2WD).  Somehow the F250 came into my care without a
spare tire or spare tire carrier.  Rather than put the spare tire under the
bed, I'd like to use a swingaway spare tire carrier like what I have on my
Bronco.  This will leave room under the bed for an extended range rear gas
tank.

I'm wondering if anyone here has put a swingaway spare tire carrier off of a
Bronco onto an F series pickup.  Does the bracketry screw directly into the
sheetmetal or is there something behind the sheetmetal to help fortify it?
Just wondering if it is as easy as it looks.  I've never seen anyone else do
it before which is why I have to wonder.

Thanks,
Chris
