Sorry, I meant 1998 250 light duty, 1999 250 "super duty", and still don't
know model year for current 250HD offerings.

Subject: re: exh. manifold gasket

I don't know about all Ford's, but on my 1995 351, there were no exhaust
manifold gaskets. There are now, cuz I put headers on, but the stock
manifolds had no gaskets.

BTW, anyone need a pair of exhaust manifolds in excellent shape?

Thanks for the tip. I think Im going to go with the 4.10's. Ill get
most of my money back anyway if I like the gears and If I dont like em',
Ill swap them back, and sell the rear end to help pay for some 3.73's.

For those that can't wait to see a 1999 Ford brochure, I've found that the
Dodge 98 Ram brochure is a pretty interesting read. If you study the Ram
brochure, and figure that Ford will "raise the bar" across the board, you
can start to get a good idea of the specifics that Ford will be offering for
the 1999 Trucks.

In addition to the good info that Josh has been sharing, you get a clear picture
that Ford is gunning for big-time bragging rights. To be clear; I'm not
trying to start a Dogde vs. Ford war.

Additionally , 1998 prices are available for the Dodge trucks, (kbb.com)
so you can get a ball park on the prices, that you can bet are going to
be competitive with Ford.

Some samples:

v10 trailer/5th wheel tow capacities are similar or better than Dodge.
model,bed, cab combinations are better or on par with Dodge
6 speed manual vs. 5 speed manual
F350 GVWR is 500 lbs more than Dodge Ram 3500.
PTO option now offered on Ford.
Possibility of Intercooler on PS (which is showing up on Dodge).
stuff like that...

Happy reading.

Kent,

The F150 and F250 under 8500# GVWR are 1998's. The new "SuperDuty
Series" are for 1999. There are no 1998 F-250 HD series.

im getting desperate, so i figured that this was a great place to look for

addition to my 86 and 88). here's my problem, it has to be an automatic, in
reliable running condition, prefferably with air conditioning, power
steering, power brakes, and it HAS to be around $1,000 or less. it has to be

Both are better than the current:
Ford Truck Fan?

I also received:

Truck suck? Should've bought Ford...
www.ford-trucks.com

Though I suspect the submission was supposed to be a joke.

Let me know what everyone thinks, perhaps this should go to a
vote? If so, printing will be delayed by a day or two (press
time is supposed to be Monday.) Also, I'm going to check to
see if a Ford blue color will show up through window tint.
If it does, the sticker will change to Ford blue.

Subject: E4OD experts -- ADVICE

Anybody try a Banks Transcommand or a JET shift command for the E4OD?

They wire in between the EEC & transmission & adjust shift firmness
electronically. Both are supposedly compatible with any valve body
upgrades. The JET Shift Command has 4 settings, while the Banks just has
on/off.

I'd be interested to hear any experience with these gizmos...especially to
see if the EEC-IV can learn its way around em. I don't believe it could,
cuz it's not in the closed loop feedback...kind of a one way deal to
shift...

Let us hear!

Is it engine oil (usually black) or transmission fluid, usually red or
redish brown? If it engine oil it would be an engine problem, most
likely the rear main seal. If it is transmission fluid I would quess it
was the seal on the transmission input shaft.

From: Ken Payne
Subject: ADMIN: Possible new list

The Explorer list is now defunct.....

Someone gave me a suggestion that we start a Ford SUV list.
This list would include all Ford SUVs and would not "compete"
with the 1980+ list. There would most likely be some overlap
of membership between it and the 1980+ list.

We have 600+ members on the 1980+ list, about 100 more than the
1979 and older list had when it split into 61-79 and 60- lists.
This list certainly has enough traffic to support it.
Additionally, the Explorer newsgroup is rather large so I believe
there would be a large audience for the new list.

Anyways, just throwing this idea out for discussion. If there's
a serious desire for a Ford SUV list, it'll go to a vote.

Ummmm... I'm going to have to vote for this one. (quite seriously
actually) and count me in for one (assuming it will show up on my all
black with windows extremely tinted (possibly past legality, but I didn't
do it) explorer.

Subject: Adding Gauges

Hey I was wondering if anyone can tell me how difficult it would be to add
a few gauges to my 93 explorer. I would like to add an anmeter, water temp
gauge, and oil pressure/ temp gauge. Would these be difficult to wire
and hook up, would it be worth the time for the mostly novel functions I
want them for???
Thanx, Jordan Dean

I need some new exhaust manifolds, but I don't think they'll fit my 2.9 :-)

OK - I give up!!!

I promise to not use Fram filters anymore if someone can only give me the
replacement filter part number (motocraft?) for a Fram PH977A.

Thanks!
