Bill,
As I stated before, the BFG Sport Truck Tires are a good all around tire. The
price is a little less than the Firehawks, but then again, the stock
Firehawks were engineered specifically for the Lightning.

From: Joan and Walt Posluszny <redstone home.com>


So a ZF 5 speed will bolt up to an 85 351W?

Will it also bold up to the NP208 Transfer case?

I'd like to swap out my 4 speed for a newer, sturdier 5 speed, Is this the
best choice?  I want something like a 3.50 first gear and overdrive on the
top end.

This isn't exactly apples to apples, but I have been very happy with the
Michelin Pilot XGTV4 225VR60-16 on my Crown Victoria Perf Pack.  I have
done some pretty stupid things with them, and they have never failed me.

They are directional, and work very well in the rain.  I paid about $160
each.  I don't know if they are available in your size, though.

Check out http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.tirerack.com/index.jsp for other ideas.

Date: Fri, 23 Feb 2001 17:50:08 -0600

On Dad's 90 F-250/460, when he turns the truck off, the fuel pump continues to run regardless of what tank it is on. He is currently placing the tank switch in the center position to prevent the battery from draining down. he replaced the electronic ignition switch last year thinking that was causing it. Why else would there be power on the pump when the key is out?
Any Ideas?

I think you should check the fuel pump relay.  Give it a good rap with a
screwdriver handle while it is running with the key off and see if it does
not get unstuck.  Then replace it.

I used an AutoMeter tach on my drag car, but anyway the tach installations
should be included with equipment purchased.

Hi Chip.  No not melting, but you're right.  There was a tear in the
outer sheathing.

I noticed something this time that I haven't before.  The parking brake
cable for the other side (original as far as I know) is a metal sheath,
and the cable itself has a plastic coating.  All the aftermarket
replacements are plastic sheath with an uncoated cable.  In the future,
probably worth checking to see what an original Ford cable looks like.

Thanks again,
