One quick comment: By the looks of all the spy shots and pre-release shots
I'd say that most of them I've seen show 4-door Crew Cabs. Seems to me
that that body style will be available right away.

Subject: Power Steering Pump Whine

I recently purchased a 1994 Ford F150 4X4 and one thing I question is the
Power Steering pumop whine when you load it (make a turn). Need comments. Is
this typical or should I expect a problem ?

Thanks,

Tim

That's interesting. I guess the intent is to bring the GCWR up to near
20,000 lbs with a V10. On the 97 vans with 4.10 and V10, the gcwr is
18,500 lbs. With 4.30 gearing on a v10, I bet we get back to 460/4.10
gas mileage :-).

Ouch.

If anybody cares:
the gcwr on the 3.73 v10 is 15,000 lbs. (97 vans)

The good news is that the 97 Power Stroke with 4:10 is rated to 20,000lbs GCWR.
3.73 on a PS probably equates to a GCWR of 18,000 lbs or so.

I take it that the GVWR is still at 8,800 lbs for the f250 and
9,000-10,000 lbs for the F350?

I looks forward to future posts from you Josh....

This is fun...

Somebody clear this up once and forall. Are these gonna be 98s or 99s
????
Very confusing having some people call them 98s when were talking about
99s. Or
vice versa.

The Ford auto dealers appear to screw this up, which doesn't help matters.
But...

1997 = Current design HD truck (F250, F350, Super Duty),
+ redesigned Light Duty F250 and F350.
1997 HD trucks are orderable (with limitations) for a vey short time.
few weeks at best.

1998 = Light Duty F150 and F250, no HD trucks tagged as 1998.
Orderable now. You can even find the prices in kbb.com

1999 = Redesigned HD F250, F350, super duty.
The common belief was that they were orderable in
jan 1998, for deliveries set in mar/apr 1998 time frame.
Today, there have been indication that orders can start in November; with
deliveries still in the mar/apr 1998 time frame.

Additionally, good information was expected to start appearing in
the October/November time frame.

Looks like this is occuring.

Hope this helps.

Good News! Ford offers a '99 F-350 supercab 4x4 with single or dual
rear wheels with an 8' box.

Single wheel GVWR: 9700#
Dual Wheel GVWR: 11000#

If you want cab and box dimensions, just ask.

Subject: Off Road Wheels 97 F150

The off road wheels on my 97 F150 have been showing signs of pitting on
the rough casting part of the wheel since less than 12000 miles. The
Ford dealer had the Ford service rep look at it but she won't call it a
defective wheel. Does anyone have any experience with this, I personally
think the finish on the wheel is defective. It took me 4 months to get
my truck when I ordered it in Feb. of 96 and one of the reasons was the
unavailability of these wheels which makes me think this is the result
of a rush job from the vendor.Thanks for any help.

From: Croth2 aol.com
Subject: Transmission Leak

I have a 87 F-150 with a straight 6, and a 4-speed transmission. Recently I
have been parking it on concrete and I have noticed that is is leaking a
small amount of fluid from the front of the transmission. I have been
driving it every day for about a month like this, and every morning I find a
small puddle underneath it. My repair manual says that it most likely is the
extension housing oil seal, or the speedometer oil seal, It also says that it
could be engine oil blown back on the transmission, but it leaves a puddle
just sitting over night. It is leaking where the transmission is bolted
onto the engine. What is wrong with it? How long can I continue to drive
on it like this? How difficult or how expensive is it to fix? Any response
would be appreciated----->Tim


P.S. I really enjoy this list, I think it is wonderful and very helpful,
Keep up the good work Ken
