I have an 89 ford bronco full size with the 302 V8. When I am in 4H and put
the truck in reverse I get a whining sound from the transfer case and the
truck will not move. However I can use reverse in 4L with no problems. I
just need some ideas on what might be wrong. Thanks!

   The driver side floor on my '80 F-150 is rusted.  Anyone have a good source for where to get a replacement?  I checked JC Whitney with no luck.  I know someone has to make them though. Thanks in advance for any leads..

I had a similar problem with an old VW Bug.  I used
fiberglass and covered the area of the hole, plus a
large area around it.  When I sold the Bug several
years later the fiberglass was still working very
well.

There are a couple of things you can do.
1.  One of the hot rod magazines used POR-15 to repair a rusted floor pan.
It gave an incredibly strong panel.  The writer asked, "When is the last
time you had to stand up on your floorboard?"
2. Mill Supply www.millsupply.com has replacement sheet metal and floor
boards for all kinds of vehicles.

Chuck, Bob and of course "Uncle Les",

Thanks for the replies to my "Heater Woes" listing. Yesterday work had me
so busy I did not have time to reply and so my appreciation.
This morning I did not that the coolant reservoir was low, so I added more
50/50 solution. Hmm I did this several times last week, must still be
getting the air out. I even took a 400 miles trip (most using propane) and
the coolant still indicated full after this trip, so I thought/assumed it
was full.

I will keep monitoring the level of coolant, is there a method of "burping"
your coolant system? That out to generate some creative replies.....No I'm
not pouring beer into the radiator, not unless I get one first.

I like the idea of reversing the coolant hoses going into the heater core.
Will see about that option this week-end.

And yes, Truth or Consequences is REALLY the name of the town just 75 miles
north of here. It caters to tourist that come to spend time at the lake.
Otherwise not much there, just hot springs, New Mexico's largest lake (where
most the El Pasoans go). It's a great region for off-roading especially
since the Aldo Leopold/Black Range/Gila wilderness is just minutes away.
The only bummer with this accident is the media keeps saying "the propane
tank exploded" and continuously leave out that the explosion occured after
several minutes after the truck was burning in front of a fill valve it had
knocked off the tank. This heated the contents of the tank naturally which
led to the disaster. The propane company is most likely in trouble for not
having the proper safety barriers around this storage tank. I don't know if
that has not been determined yet.
My question remains, was the Dominoes pizza delivery girl's truck a Cheby?

Thanks to all,

Phred
