I have seen questions about this before now we can have something done
about it. Unorthodox racing is willing to make them if I can get 10
people to put a deposit down! Please read the attachment, and if
interested send me e-mail and if I get enough responses I will call them
up! I will let you know when we get enough people!

Chris,
We are pretty sure that pulley is different from the early 2.3L's like the
turbo cars. If some one can send us a pulley and you can get atleast 10
owners to put deposits down we can make you all a unit. Cost should be about
$120 each, since it is very limited production. You'll have a choice of
black, clear, red or blue anodizing. Give me a call at 888-PULLEYU, 9-5 EST
to discuss the project.

Thanks for your interest,
Shawn Debeaumon
President
Unorthodox Racing Inc.

It has always had a ruff idle and poor mileage, 11 mpg. There also seems to
be a miss at highway speeds. But it has the get and go when I need the
power. I have replaced the fuel and air filters and also the O2 sensor. I
even took in to a Ford dealer and had the fuel pressure checked and also the
injectors cleaned and checked. Additionally, they hook up a computer
troubleshooting system and we drove around to isolate the problem. No
luck...no fault codes. Everything was within computer spec? The truck is
very dependable, never had any problems mechanically, except brakes. I do
have a problem with peeling paint, but that's another subject. Does anyone
have any suggestions on what I might try next...short of selling it? All
comments are appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill Coates

Bill,

>From my recent experience with a rough idle, you might take the time to
double check the wiring at each injector with the engine wiring diagram!
Another thing, lift the hood in low light and see if you can see leakage in
the spark plug wires while the engine is running. You might see blue arcs --
which means time for new wires.

We've got a recently purchased 88 F150 302 4X. I'm asking if this is a five
or six qt sump on this motor. My Ranger 4x had a larger off road sump, I
believe, and this f150 indictes a quart low with five qts in it. THere may
be an issue with the 'dip' stick, but I want to make sure it doesn't take
six qts before I go off. My 2X F150 takes five qts. (And no, I don't have
the ability to compare the two right now!).

Dave Lampert,

My '92 F150 5.0L requires six quarts to show full on the dip stick, too.
Hope I'm not doing anything wrong...

Subject: Clutch Thanks

Just wanted to thank everyone that helped me with advice on my =
clutch/hydraulics replacement. It's finally done!

The last bit of advice I asked for was clutch slave bleeding. Turns out =
I was bleeding it fine, and the reason my pedal was not coming all the =
way back up and the clutch was not releasing was the adjustment on the =
new master cylinder linkage. The original unit had no adjustment, and I =
thought I had the new one set up per the instructions.

Turned out I still had too much play. I made the actuating rod longer =
by a few turns, and now the truck shifts beautifully with no clutch =
slippage.

Thank you everyone!

Dave, what year is your 2X F150? My 1986 2WD with the 5.0L takes six =
quarts with a filter change. No special options, and that's also what =
my owner's manual says it should take.

Current page is up at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.ticz.com/~jjay/ It's not as good now as it
has been, and there are several HTML errors that I just haven't bothered
fixing, but this next one will be the granddaddy of them all (of all of my
pages [and that's quite a few!])
