Subject: possible heater core problem?


i need help on this one listers.  last week while i was driving i
noticed a coolant smell.  i loooked over and there was a smal amount of
coolant driping from under the dash of my truck!  so i stopped and found
that coolant was also leaking from under the truck on the passenger side
firewall.  i had topped my coolant off a couple of days before, but it
was ot that low.  so i topped the coolnt off, but it only took about 1/4
of a gallon.  later on i realized that it only leaked when the temp
gauge was reading 1/2 or more.  well, now it doesn't leak at all if the
coolant remains a little low(about 1/4 of a gallon low).  could it be
just a slightly cracked heater core that only leaks under pressure?  i
checked the heater core hoses and they are in good condition and dry as
a bone.  i saw the post about changing out a core on an 88 F-150, but is
it just as easy on an 85 F-150?  thanx.....

I just got a new slider for my 86 F150 and need VERY EXPLICIT
instructions on how to remove the old one and install the new
one.  Tools needed, etc.
I am old (good excuse ;-) ) and I am slow (dense) so please be as
thorough as you can.
I thank you very much,
Chuck

David-
It is very easy to pull the cover off of the heater core from the inside
and look for wetness, indicating a leak.  Remove glove box liner, remove a
few screws holding the heater core cover on and there you have it.  Very
easy to replace if it is leaking. You can even drive the truck to a parts
place open like that, if you have to, and then swap the heater core out
when you get home (drain system, remove hoses on engine side and remove
core).  One of the simplest repairs to do on this truck.

Yep, the R and R is the same for all F150/Broncos 80-96. They are behind the
glove box.

Subject: ADMIN: Efforts to stop spam


Ford Truck Enthusiasts receives about 20-50 spam e-mails per
day.  Fortunately, the list server rejects the postings.
Unfortunately, the rejected e-mails are bounced to the admin
e-mail address (ie, me).

At one point, FTE uses the mail-abuse.org and orbs.org
databases to thwart spam.  This practice was discontinued
because a small percentage of users were unable to send
e-mail to FTE because their ISP is listed in either the
mail-abuse and orbs databases.

There are many reasons for being in one of these databases:

1. ISP was submitted to Orbs for testing and was determined
  to allow SMTP relaying. ie, their system is wide open to
  allowing spammers to bounce mail off their server.
2. ISP was submitted to Orbs for testing and blocked testing.
  Usually, testing is blocked because the ISP knows their
  mail server is insecure and they do not or cannot fix the
  problem.  ***This is the primary reason for some of our
  users being unable to send us mail.***
3. ISP is a known, reported source of spam and was submitted
  to mail-abuse.
4. ISP is a known to allow dial-up users to spam.

Due to the amount of spam received, the mail-abuse and Orbs
lookups have been added back to our mail configuration.  If
your e-mail gets blocked by our server, either pressure your
ISP to fix the problem or switch to an ISP that takes spam
seriously.  Don't take the excuse from them that the Orbs
test isn't acceptable to them.  The only reason for not wanting
to be tested is fear of test failure.  The big boys (AOL,
Mindspring, Earthlink, etc.) aren't afraid of Orbs testing and
neither should the little providers.
