Pretty much par for the course with auto hubs.  Replace them with
quality manual hubs (for less money) and be done with the problems
of the less-than-reliable auto-lockers.

Hey everyone, I don't know if there are any from the "small-list or the
"61-79-list" here but I finally made it to Colorado Springs from St Helens
Oregon  I managed to sell my blue 79 F100 to a guy that was more
mechanically inclined than I, so he can fix the tranny.  My other F250 (that
was my opps didn't mean to buy that at the auction) is still sitting in OR.

Anyway I'm here, the 80 F250 pulled my hubby's Shelby out, my only trouble
was the stupid breaks still (I had them changed and bled, then the master
was re-bled in Boise, and I re-bled it yet again in Utah and they're still
giving me trouble and no power (Oomph) on the "hills".  But she made it,
including Loveland Pass and Eisenhower Tunnel's Hill.

However today I kindda misjudged the distance to the curb and as my daughter
put it "her hair hit the ceiling of the cab" luckily it wasn't her head too.
Anyway I got the woman driver look from my husbands coworkers and got out
and checked her over.

I did a more thorough check after I got her to Peyton (to pick up my son)
cause since I went over the curb- into the curb and -over the other side,
she stalls at idle at the lights. . . I've always been told you can't stall
an auto tranny. . . guess what, I figured out a way to do it. . . anyway I
don't see any damage to the back tire (passenger side) or any of the parts
to that. I looked under the hood to check the connections there and
everything is as it was when I left Oregon;

So what did I do to her?

I'd be glad to hear some more places to check and be specific guys and gals
I'm still learning my way around an engine compartment and underside of a
vehicle.

Hi All,
   Recently I've noticed a weird pulsing on my instrument, interior, cargo,
marker, stop/tail, and, head lights, when they're on. I've watched the
voltage gauge at the same time and seen It also pulsing about +/- 1 volt.
This happens often at idle, but sometimes at speed too. I replaced the
alternator a few months ago after it stopped charging. I only noticed this
pulsing after the new alternator was in.

Sounds like your alternator has a bad diode.  Take the
alternator back and get a replacement for it.
