I don't mean to but in here, but I think you may have to wait a few days,
'cause Nephew Phred's gone bush. He and a few friends trying out some 4X4
trails over the holiday period....

Well I'm pitchin' the carb and am going with FI. I've got a Bassani
exhaust with only one O2 sensor where the Y-pipe comes together. The
wiring harness and computer are setup for two 02 sensors. Should I just
plug the one bung and add two more further up stream?

I am trying to reach you regarding a timing component issue. I left
for you today, but didn't get a call back and your email address
that I have
is no longer in service. HELP!!!! Email me when you can.

Sorry Wayne but I just got back from the best Christmas holiday I've ever
I've already taken care of the customer service crowd, just let me know
when you ship.
We were stuck in Santa Fe NM due to a pretty good snow storm.
BAD NEWS; The storm actually caught us when we were off-roading in snow
covered mountains near Pecos NM. I found out one of my hubs was not
engaging...extreme bummer considering the in-laws Land Rover Defender and
J-40 Landcruiser were having a blast. My bullet proof Warn hubs failed? Not
now! Why me?
GOOD NEWS; We got back to their house, took the cover off the hub, and
when I last did the wheel bearings a couple of months ago, I had incorrectly
assembled the hubs such that the spring was not seated correctly. I screwed
up, my fault. No biggee, just a hurt ego and some ribbin and teasing about
Ford trucks, &$( & family, but I love 'em.
In essence, the spring was not pressing completely on the surface it was
supposed to and it was binding up. It was a simple fix. Put the cover back
on and the hub worked, this was good because by now the visibility was nil,
snow flakes were huge and it was already several inches deep with no end in
A white Christmas. Lesson learned, do the work carefully and check it.
Had a great time otherwise, enjoyed learning to drive in the snow and ice
packed roads. Went out off-roading a little more for my ego. Saw lots of
fender benders and tell-tale skid marks.

I'm in the market for a used extended cab F150. I like years '90-94. What
are the pros and cons of any of these years that you're aware of? Would you
pursue 300 6cyl. or 302 V-8 and why? Automatic or manual? Thanx for your

I just got my 88 F-150 back from having a new motor put in (4.9L 6). The
mechanic left out a couple of things (I can't complain, he did it for free).
1. How does the kickdown linkage attach at the motor end? For some reason,
I don't have passing gear when I'm on the highway.
2. How hard a job is it to replace the heater core? It started puking
coolant into the cab while I was driving down I-5. Right now I have
bypassed the heater hoses, but eventually it would be nice to have a
defroster! I live in the desert of Southern California, so it's not quite a
do or die thing right now.
I'm sure more items will crop up, but that's all my pea-sized brain can
muster right now. Thanks in advance...
