I have a brother with a F150 with dual fuel tanks and the gage to the
front doesn't show accurate reading with a full tank and key on it shows
empty turn headlights on the gage shows full. Switch to rear tank it it
show the proper level. If anyone can tell me what to do I would
appreciate it.

Thanks

Subject: help! installing an aftermarket tach



I have a 94 F150, 300/six, 5 speed, 4x4.  It's a LX model with no options,
but comes with five gauges (fuel, volts, oil and temp).

I would like to add a vacuum gauge, ammeter, and tach, (all to sit above
the dash).  I think I can figure out the ammeter, and the vacuum gauge
should be no problem, but I have *no*idea* how to hook up a tach to a
electronisized beast such as this one.  Can anyone put it in simple terms
for me?

I haven't bought one yet, so if one type is better than another, please
advise!

I only recently bought this truck, and am just getting into fixing the problems I inherited. The nicest way I can put it is the previous owner loved to turn wrenches, even if he didn't have a reason to. I've already reset the distributor to get the timing right, and rebuilt the carb yesterday. I knew it had no AC but when I actually looked, he's reomved that compressor along with the air pump (but left the two valves under it). I removed them and plugged the hole on the intake the big tube feeding them came from.

I've got a Chiltons and compared its vacuum diagram to what's in my engine bay. When I put the carb back on I easily rerouted the big vacuum hoses feeding the PCV, brake booster and charcoal canister. Where I'm getting lost is routing the smaller lines to what's left. Namely, the EGR valve and small diaphram on the back right of the carb. I'm not for sure what should be run from the block of 3 mounted underneath the carb, and the single port on the carb next to the mixture screw. If anyone has any input to the matter it would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Justin Schick

90 F150, 5.0, AOD

I'm wanting to do a shift kit and tranny cooler, mainly for
tow reliability. And being able to scratch 2nd under full
throttle would be cool too.

Looking through the Summit catalog, there were 2 different
B&M kits, and another (Trans-Go?). Question is, which kit
should I get (what am I looking for) and how much trouble is
it to install - I know some kits are harder than others. I
don't really care about changing shift points, just firming
them up a good bit so it doesn't slip so bad between gears
while towing.

Also, tranny cooler recommendations?

the shift kit i got was the art carr shift kit and i love it throws second
gear hard especially with a nicely tuned motor to supply power to it. with
the shift kit alone i wasnt able to snatch second but with a little motor
work i was barking second with partial to no throttle just cruising i love it
but dont really like driving the race truck anymore too much to worry about
on the road.  not quite enough
