Hiya all,

Just wondering if anyone out there is running a Gibson cat back
system on their rig. I was calling for prices on Flowmaster and Borla,
and the guy at The Truck Performance Center told me I had picked the best
and the worst to ask about :) He suggested Gibson as a good mid-grade
alternate, not near as expensive as the Borla, but better quality than
Flowmaster (quieter than Flowmaster too, which is important).
He says that the system is a 3" pipe with a 3 1/2" tip. I'm
looking to free up the breathing on my '90 F250 with a 351 for more power
and mileage. I'm looking at an MSD ignition and K&N filter charger too,
but the main question for this message is:
Anyone got a Gibson, and what do you think of it?


TIA,

Subject: F-250/350 4X4
Hello,
I'm looking for a new truck to haul a slide-in camper. The camper weighs
apx. 2000 lbs. wet and count on an additional 1000 lbs. of folks and gear.
We will be going to fairly remote sites for camping and stargazing. Not
intending to do any radical four-wheeling, but would like to be able to get
around in mud/snow/sand. The truck will be driven on the highway for long
distances and then into the boonies.
I have been checking out the F-250/350 series. The powerstroke diesel
appears to be a good option. I've spoken with a few owners, no one has
anything bad to say about mileage or performance. Before I saddle up to
this kind of money, I'd like to hear from anyone who has experience with
these trucks.
I would appreciate any coments/advice.
Thanks,
Richard

Subject: F-250 4x4 Auto Hubs

Well, I guess what 'everyone' says about auto-locking hubs is true ('96 4x4
F-250 48K miles). One failed recently, naturally when I could have really
used 4wd. What's a bit odd is that they worked fine just a week ago, no
expensive noises or anything of that sort. I always treat them gently,
full stop before engaging, no turns on dry surfaces, moderate acceleration.
Just didn't and won't engage.

Does anybody on this list know the ususal failure mode? i.e. is it too
much torque (it's a PS diesel), binding from being on a too-dry surface,
dirt? (I can guess along with the best of 'em; I'd like to hear from
someone who 'knows'. The dealer is useless for this type of information.)
I'm going for a direct replacement this one time, but if it happens again,
I'll switch to manual hubs. I hate to lose the convenience, but better to
have 4wd available than not...

if you used them alot in off road situations and went thru lots of water and
other wet stuff....you should relub the hubs when repacking the wheel
bearings....this should make them last alonger time....mine have over 50k on

I have the Gibson system. It works great and was a snap to install. I have
it installed on a 3.0L Ranger so I could not add headers at that time. As
for the sound, my rig sound like a V8. It is a lot loader than stock, but
is a deap rumble. I got it from the same company, you talked to, in 93.
There is a little surface rust, but no real rusting is evident. Hope that
helps.

Subject: 95 Ranger fuel filter

Anyone know the correct procedure for replacing the fuel filter on a 95
Ranger?

My experience is with older vehicles with carburetors and non-pressurized
fuel systems. I bought the fuel filter thinking it was just a inline
filter in the engine compartment. After checking I realized that it is
under the cab on the driver side. It also appears to be a pressurized
system and I didn't want to just unhook it and have gas all over the place.

Is there a procedure to relieve the pressure and minimize the fuel loss?

Thanks,

George

Hi George !

I had a 94 4.0L Ranger XL ( now I'm with a 97 XLT 4.0L ) with the fuel
filter in the same position and when my mechanic changed the fuel filter
gas loss was minimum.
So I wouldn't worry about that. But be careful about the filter itself :
there are several models for Ranger. It was a painful job to buy a filter
here in Brazil ( could you imagine that ! a mere fuel filter ! ).

If you are worried about the line being pressurized, with the key off, pull
the fuel pump relay out of the relay holder. The holder is the "black" box
next to the battery. After removing the relay, crank the engine a few times.
Replace the filter then the relay.

I never do it.....but I have seen it done this way.

Hi Richard,


The powerstroke would probably be ideal for your intended use. Mileage is
anywhere from 15 to 20+MPG. Rated tow capacity is well above your intended
use. These trucks hold their resale value much better than 460 equipped
models, too.

Before you buy, look around a good price! I drove 500 miles to save about
4K. Plus, no "little back room" bickering on the deal.

I'm no expert on auto-lock hubs, but I would think that moisture
(condensation) and freezing temps. play a major role in their failure (or
failure to operate). I know many folks with "push button" rangers and
explorers where the system fails to operate in freezing temps., due to freeze-
up or ?.

Bottom line, "auto lock" is a crummy idea. If you live in an area where
you need and use 4WD, is it that big a chore to turn 'em in and out? By the
way, I've got auto locks too.

John, you can test those plugs, by installing the fuse and using an ohms
meter or 12v test light inserted into the plugs. The only problem I see
is that you'd also have to find out where the fog light switch was
supposed to be mounted, get behind there in the dash (or under) and find
those connectors as well. Then, you'd have to make a connection there
using 'jumper' wires. The benefit to all of this, of course, would be
that you could order a switch from Ford and install it into the dash to
look factory. Otherwise, you'll have to find a place to mount your new
toggle switch (that came w/the light kit). I know that some mfgs. have
it set-up that when you turn on your high beams, the fog lights kick
off. Does anyone know if Ford has the Ranger set-up that way? If they
do, John, you would at least be able to keep them (fogs) on w/the
brights if you install the auxiliary switch that came w/the kit. Also,
do you plan on installing the Ford factory foglights? I think you'd
need the airdam w/the holes cut out of it, to get the factory look.
Hope this helps a little.

Randy

Richard, I have an '87 F-250HD 4x4 std. cab. It has a 351W h.o. 4 bbl
stock (for now) motor. I haul my 19' 2900 lb camper, my four wheeler,
plus me, my wife, my daughter and my dog (there's room in the bed even
w/the 250x near the cab and he loves it) and tools, gear, clothes. I
use that truck for everything and that's no joke. While I do wish I had
better gas mileage sometimes, it's not too bad. I really only notice it
on long freeway hauls due to the 3 sp. auto and gearing. I would
recommend this vehicle to anyone that uses a truck they way it was built
to be used! Btw, any relation? I couldn't resist.

Leslie, the Ford factory shackle is inverted as you so noted. They're
installed this way, because it gives a better ride. To increase you're
trucks' height via the shackle, you would have to flip it (back to the
old, normal, non-inverted way), because, if I remember right (it's too
cold out to go look) the factory mount has steel in the way, so the
shackle can't hang down. Now, I just read an article on this in a
recent magazine issue, but after flipping thru for the last 20 mins, do
you think I could find it? Nooooo, of course not, so I'll have to tell
you what I remember. It seems to me, no one makes a 'kit' for the Ford
trucks, (I think there's one for Ch*vy). So, with the ol' grinder in
hand you could remove the old ones; then bolt and/or reweld them back
into place (only upside down obviously). Remember, the difference in
the location of the spring eyelet holes must be halved to get your
actual lift. In other words, if you flip the shackle, you'll probably
move the spring mount down about 4". That will net you 2" of lift,
because the axle is in the center of the springs and only moved half of
that distance.
Btw, how do you run 4.11's in the rear diff and 3.55's in the front on
your '87 Bronco?

Hope I could help,

Tom, how do those 33's fit under there? I have an '87 F-250HD 4x4 and I
think I can fit 33's with the stock height. I am considering a 4" lift
(mega bucks w/the IFS) and would probably use 35's instead, what do you
think?

Thanks,
Randy

This is to Zeb, as for a return, I would guess you are talking about taxes,
My parents are going to go in depth with on how to do them this year, so I
really don't know how to answer that............ I know what my income tax
return was for the previous year, but don't know what you are asking.

Dear ladies & gentlemen:

If you have a moment to reply, I would truly appreciate any responses.
..

I own a 1991 F-150 XLT Lariat 4x4 with antilock brakes and 107,000
miles on the engine. I've bought this truck four months ago.

This past week, the truck started to give me serious concerns
regarding the brakes. Whenever I chose to apply the brakes, I get
resistance as well as significantly increased braking distance. A
few times, the truck did a roll-thru at stop signs...

I've had two good mechanics check the truck out - They replaced the
brakes module (it was an used module). I drove it once, the brakes
are fine - After that, downhill.....
