Believe it or not but .45 ACP casings work very well to replace the posts
with a little modification...

What on earth is a "rear manifold" ?
All the 300 inline sixes that I have seen have a combination
manifold (intake/exhaust, but can be separated).  Did Ford
make them different in the 90's ?  I'm more of a fan of the 70's
and early 80's trucks myself ... never owned or worked on one
of thse newer models.  I would guess that you can get a manifold
at a salvage yard for a heck of a lot cheaper, or have your current
one machined a little if it is leaking at the head due to warpage.
If your manifold is cracked, however, the only real fix is to replace
it.

In the mid 80's, maybe the same time they switched it to Fuel Injection, the
300 got a two piece exhaust manifold.  The front three cylinders are on one
and the back three on the other with separate pipes to the cat.

Justin,

I'm positive mine doesn't.  I have read all the Ford books and can hold my
own regarding ignitions,  I've added a Jacobs Mileage Master to this truck
as well.

Subject: Headlight relays


Hay guys.. been awhile since I posted but had something new to show off
if anyone was interested.
About a year ago I put in a set of 100/130 watt headlight bulbs, super
white xenon plasma from Jegs. I absolutly fell in love with them...
anyways about a month ago they started to not come on when I pulled the
switch. I had to go out and wiggle the wires to get them to come on.
Then the other day I pulled them and found the socket ate up and stuff
from to pull of power.  So I ran to the parts store and bought some
relays, new headlight sockets, and installed it all and works perfectly.
Just like factory....
If anyone wants details just send me an e-mail and if enough people are
interested I might write up an article.

Hi guys,

I have a problem with my 1995 F150 4X4.  When I step on the brakes it pulls
to the left moderately.  The weird thing is, it doesn't always do it.  It
will do it most of the time but I'd say once every 15 times I step on the
brakes it won't pull.  I looked at both front brakes and they both look
fine, even wear, not leaking brake fluid, free movement.  Could air in one
of the lines cause this?  I'm stumped.

Yeah, the air would be compressing and causing different pressures at each caliper. If it tracks fine in neutral and the alignment is within spec you know you don't have one stuck, so I'd try bleeding them. Hope this helps.
