My hat is off to you Laura for the excellent posting;more importantly
though,for the job you do every day.I can only imagine the daily grind
with a flock of basically undisciplined children whose parents are so
self-absorbed they can't possibly raise respectable kids.I personally
could'nt do the job.It would only get physical.That wouldn't do in this
"hands off"and "no consequences" society that we have regressed to
now.That said,please allow me to try to encourage you to "weary not in
well doing" if you can.Somewhere out there is an administrator whose
convictions about quality education are close to yours.Maybe a private
school organization or different district in which your efforts will be
more appreciated and reflected in those you teach.This Country and our
society need and appreciate you and those like you.The public schools in
general get frowned on IMHO because the Administrators of these
institutions have proven themselves unaccountable and incompotent.As
usual though,the ones in the trenches doing the real work,take the
hit.Sorry to be so long-winded,but beleive me;I could continue on this
for days along with similar subject matter........:-) On the delay
wiper repair that somebody posted a couple weeks ago pertaining to the
removal of the cap the end of the signal switch to access and clean
the contact area: thank you.I can't remember your name,but greatly
appreciate the info. I did as you did and managed to mess it up even
worse.That's what happens when you have larger hands and fingers more
acustommed to sawzalls and hammers than microscopic contacts and small
tools I guess.That's my excuse anyhow.They work with a little
coaxing.Would anybody appen to know if just the knob portion of the
assembly is available from Ford,and the cost thereof?If I can't get the
knob,I'm no worse off than I was to begin with.Thanks. Randy

No, it was late '89. I had a '89 Ext, Cab with the 2.3 (a real dog), I sold
it and still have the owners manual. The owners manual list three engine
types, the 2.3,3.0,4.0L.

1990-91 series was the first year for this engine to be used in the
Ranger (and any Ford product). If you ever make salvage yard runs,
this engine can be found in the Aerostar, Bronco II, Explorer, and
Ranger.

Ford Announces Super Value on Its New Super Duty...

Ford Announces Super Value on Its
New Super Duty F-Series Trucks
DETROIT, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ --

Manufacturer's suggested retail prices for the new Ford (NYSE: F) Super Duty
F-Series truck line-up will be only 1.1 percent higher, on average, than
prices for the present line-up, on a comparably-equipped basis excluding new
models.

Suggested prices for the 1999-model Super Duty F-Series trucks will start at
$19,160 for the F-250 regular cab 4x2, compared with $18,765 for the current
model, including destination charges of $640.With the introduction of the
expanded Super Duty F-Series line, Ford is
establishing yet another benchmark in the truck market. The Super Duty F-
Series will deliver the most complete line-up of trucks in the over-8,500 lb.
segment. With 44 pickup and chassis cab models available, including 21 new-
to-Ford offerings and 17 models not offered by any other manufacturer, the
1999 Super Duty F-Series is another clear example of Ford's leadership in the
truck market.

"With everything we've done to enhance the Super Duty F-Series line-up, we're
pleased to be able to keep prices at levels that make these great new trucks
an even better value for our customers," said Ross Roberts, vice president and
Ford Division general manager. "Our trucks are tough -- they have to be to
meet heavy-truck customers' tough expectations for performance, roominess,
versatility, dependability and overall value. Our new Super Duty F-Series
line-up offers truck customers everything they've come to expect from Ford and
more. We now have the most comprehensive range of models to meet the demands
of the full-size market -- the most diverse of all vehicle segments."The new
models offer all-new styling and a host of new or enhanced standard
features, including new engines with more horsepower, higher torque and better
fuel economy than the engines they replace; improved ride, handling,
responsiveness and maneuverability; and four-wheel power disc brakes.

Among other new standard features offered on the redesigned Super Duty F-
Series trucks are a driver's side airbag on all models and four doors on all
SuperCab models. Suggested retail prices will start at $20,915 for the F-250
SuperCab 4x2 model, including destination charges. A list of suggested retail
prices for selected base models follows. Prices are effective January 6,
1998. Public introduction is scheduled for March 5, 1998, but dealers are
accepting orders now for delivery on or after February 19, 1998.1999-MODEL

All I can tell you about the "Nite" package is it was not available
with the I-6 engine, roof clearance lights, sport wheel covers,
argent or chrome styled steel wheels, or optional rear step bumber,
optional mirrors, or two tone paint. It was only available with the
XLT Lariat package.

Hi to everyone on this list. I've just discovered your great forum for
Ford discussions and this is my first question.

I have a 96 Bronco 4x4 with the stock automatic. My wife drives the
truck all the time and she hates the automatic and wants a 5-speed (I
feel the same by the way). Is it feasible to install the Ford 5-speed.
Has anyone done this? Does anyone have any suggestions or comments
(good or bad). I notice in the Ford manual that the towing capacity for
the 5-speed is considerably lower than the automatic. Does this mean
the 5-speed isn't as strong?

Thanks in advance,

There's a guy around my area who has one of these. It's an extended cab
w/8' bed that he uses as a work truck. He must be a painter! I don't
know how limited the production of this truck was, but it is a pretty
cool looking truck (w/o paint/wear on it) w/all the trim being blacked
out, kind of a shame that he uses it, no abuses it, like that.

Does anyone know where the door sensor is on a '95 Ford Ranger

The door ajar sensor is located inside of the door on the bottom of the door
latch. after you remove the door panel you remove the bottom part of the
glass run and the sensor twists out. the base part number on the sensor you
want is 14018. There are two sensors on the latch and it is the bottom one
to replace when the dome lights and key chime stay on all of the time. Need
any more specifics then e-mail me and I will help.

Replace the starter relay on the fender. It will click but no current will
pass through. Just because it clicks it does not mean that it is letting
the current pass through. It happens all of the time. They are cheap. It

If it is an automatic it could be the neutral safety switch. I went
through everything you said above and it still persisted. Finally we found
that by crossing two wires on the starter relay you could start the truck,
BUT it could be done in any gear, and you didn't have any reverse lights.
That led us to the little five dollar part that solved the problem. This
was on a 75 dodge with a 4 speed auto, but I am sure Ford has a switch to
(usaully in the tranny, but I guess you could mount it remotely too..)

Anyone have problems with the hydraulic clutch actuater on a 96 F250
H.D.? The dealer replaced the slave cylinder under warrantee, which has
now expired and now with 122,000 kilometers on the truck, its hard to
get into gear and starts moving as soon as the clutch pedal leaves the
bottom. Slave cylinder again? Or master cylinder? Any advice? Upgrades
available? I'd appreciate any comments.

Subject: tires

does anyone out there have any opinions on the Riken overland traction tire
(spelling)? I saw some yesterday and they looked like a good mix of
highway and light off road traction. A lot better than my laredos anyway.
If they are a decent tire where might I go to get some? (keeping in mind
the only local tire dealer is a chevy dealer that sells goodyears (they
don't get my business....)

Is it possible to use tire chains (regular link) on the 96 F250 4wd?
Will they fit on the rear tires without any problems?

Thanks,
Dave

I have the same problems in my 88 F150. I think the bad gas mileage in
my case is me "always" gassing it to much. But anyways, not to long ago
I also had the same reving problem and when I took it in they said the
manifold gasket had been sucked into down into the block somewhat.
Don't know how this is possible, but this is what they told me. I also
am getting 9-10 MPG. I need to replace my MAP or MAF valve sensor
thing, so I don't know if this will make a difference. I found this on
the computer in a automotive teaching school near hear. I would like
some people to post with info on my words.

I also have the tranni problem and from the posts of others I am
wondering about the mount because I have checked and repacked my
u-joints not to long ago. Yes, they are a little worn, but not that
bad, so I am going to check out the tranni mount.
