If the bad check writer was an established customer
and the bad check was written in error and/or due to
no fault of his own, ABSOLUTELY.

I think the new policy is needlessly harsh.

Bruce,

The key difference is you aren't paying for the lists.

It may be, in your opinion, needlessly harsh, but until you're
ready to put your assets at risk it stays.  If you want to be
exempt, you can sign a form stating you'll assume 100% of the
costs associated with damage caused to FTE by a virus
transmitted from your computer. I'm willing to bet you won't
sign it because it would be >>your<< assets at risk instead of
mine. Fair?

Just my 2 cents here about all this. If for some reason anyone is too cheap to
purchase anti virus software and they do not want any viruses on their computer
go to http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.pcpitstop.com You can run antivirus software for FREE as often
as you like. That way you shall not infect anyone else.

Subject: Oil pan woes


Have we stopped whining about Ken's new rule yet?

I went out today to find a big puddle of oil under my truck.  My SECOND
oil pan is now history.  Has anyone else had to replace two of them?  It
is a '91 302.  This one only lasted 4.5 years, and I can't get under it
any more.

I put two quarts of oil in it and started visiting my local Ford
dealers.  Time for a trade.  I really can't drive a manual transmission
now, anyway.  One dealer has a 2000 F250SD 7.3L Lariat with 10,000 miles
for $28,000.  That is the only 8' bed regular cab 4x4 between two
dealers, new or used.

I love being in debt up to my butt.

My 2 cents on Fred Moreno's burping problem. I had a similar problem with a
350ci Olds Diesel engine. It did the burping or gurgling sound. The cause of
this, in this engine was the start of a head gasket leak. When the sound
appeared the heat would all but disappear, then with a change of engine rpm
the heat would come back. I was UN-aware of what was causing this  till by
accident I was looking at the overflow container when this condition
appeared and a big blast of air bubbles appeared, and the heat returned.
Proved to be a head gasket leak,  years after it appeared again and again a
bad head gasket, with a minor leak. I had to add very little coolant and at
the beginning the engine did not overheat.

Now I am having a low heat problem in a 79' full size Bronco with the 305
engine. So far I have found the thermostat installed backwards, a old
collapsed hose on the water pump that goes to the "T" and heater core (think
that this is the suction side of the pump).  I am now getting some heat, I
have even blocked 1/2 of the radiator to try and get more heat. The radiator
upper hose and the supply hose to the heater is now quite hot to the touch.
The return hose on the heater is barely warm. If I shut the blower off for a
short time both hoses feel quite hot, if I turn the blower back on I get a
blast of heat for a short time and the hose's temp goes back to what they
were.
Does this indicate blockage of the heater core or in the return line?  Did
note that there is a brand new water pump and radiator. Some one has
installed flushing fittings in the heater hose's, don't know if these could
cause problems. I had thought about reversing the hoses to the core but ran
out of daylight. I just bought this Bronco this week so don't know much of
its history.
Any help would be appreciated, I am wearing my Carharts as a driving suit to
keep warm in my part of Michigans Thumb.

Since you have plenty of heat on the radiator hoses,
but very little heat on the return line from the
heater core, this would indicate a blocked heater
core.  I would first try reversing the heater hoses at
the heater core so the water flow is the opposite of
what it is now.  If you still have very little heat
after 20-30 miles, you will have to replace the heater
core.  Sometimes when an engine is flushed the junk
ends up blocking the heater core.  Of course, this
isn't noticed in the summer when the engine is
flushed.
