hey pete,
if you need parts for your ranger , get a jcwhitney catalog you can
find it on a newstand or call them at 312 431-6102, they have everything for
your truck. if you are looking for a good wax, check this out its called flash
liquid paste wax, its made with carnuba and teflon, i used to have a detailing
company and this wax is the best on the market and you will wax your truck in
about 20 minutes with it. its made by malco, i will give you the number to the
headquarters, and they will tell you where there is a distributor in your
area. the number is 330 753-0361. 1 gallon costs about 12 or 13 dollars, but
you can wax your ranger about 30 times with it. believe me its worth the phone
calls.its so easy to wax your truck with. this is high tech wax, that the
professionals use. well good luck, if you have any questions e-mail me at

requiring an extensive rebuild. Your AOD can handle more power, but if it's
got some miles on it, be prepared for an over-haul.

I'm not sure if I have an AOD or an E4OD..How can I tell? How did your
Eletrical work out to be? I'm especially intrested in the firing order. So
the HO and truck short blocks are the same? physically and internally?

thanks again,

There were no less than *six* different carbs for my '82 six banger;
just for that year. Without the original I think it would be difficult
to find the *exact* one. However, it seems that any of the carbs from
that year for that engine would suffice.

Another thing to consider is that if you go with the FoMoCo stuff, that
carb will probably cost more than the truck. Consider going with a
rebuilt unit from Napa or some other supplier.

Jram swbell.net suggested removing the radio top and cleaning the volume
control with contact cleaner. That worked like a charm and saved me about
$100. Thanks for all the other great tips from list members. All were valid.
This list is a super means of sharing common problems and offering solutions
and advice. It is the first thing I read each day. Thanks again, Butch

Subject: Gas Mileage

My recently purchased F-150 seams to be getting about 13 MPG town and 16
on the road. EPA lists 16/20 and in my past experience is usually
conservative. It's an XLT 4x2, 4.9L six, E4OD, 8 ft bed, 2 tanks,
standard cab with 90K miles in very good running condition. It does
have 235 tires instead of 215's. I was expecting better out of the six.
Anyone know what I should expect? - David

Subject: Parts / Car wax

Peter, I have also used Zymol in the past,but it doesn't hold up as
frequently as I wash my truck. In the last year or so,I have gotten into
the habit of using the one step waxes immediatly after washing and
drying the truck.I like the "Black Magic"products the best,although
armour-all has a pretty good one too if you can stand the
smell.(perfumy) This keeps it looking freshly waxed all the time.The
more you use this kind of stuff,the better seems to work.Give it a
try;it'll only cost you about 5 bux to check it for youreslf. Randy

Subject: '95 F150 Exhaust System

Hi all,

I would like to give my truck a little more sound and more power from
the exhaust system.
I have the 351, 5.8 liter engine with the longer cab and 6-3/4' bed.

I was wondering if this is such a good idea or not. I don't particularly
like a loud exhaust system
but just having the sound of rushing air coming out of the tailpipe
seems a little funny (and restricting).

Subject: Bronco tire carrier

My Bronco does not have the swing away spare tire carrier. The spare is
inside the truck. I called around for after-market units, and the only one I
found costs about $170. A used factory unit is impossible to come by. I
heard that Kayline has a unit that also holds spare gas cans.

Does anybody have advice on this? I'd hate to spend $170 and find out that
it's junk.

Subject: fuelpump doesnt shut-off

I have an 89 F-150 with a 302. after I shut the engine off, The fuel pump
still pumps and buzzes loudly for 5 minutes before it shuts off, I'm almost
positive its the fuel pump because when I switch to my empty tank I can hear
it sucking air. I cant figure out why it does this, does it have something
to do with my fuel filter or my fuel pressure regulator??? The truck also
idles anywhere between 400 and 2,500RPM and sometimes dies when it idles, and
it gets bad gas mileage.
I just bought this truck and I want to get it running great. Any
suggestions???

Are you trying to turbo a 2.3L ?? Go to a junkyard and get an SVO 2.3 turbo
motor or a Mercur 2.3 or a turbo T-bird motor all are easier than adapting
a Porsche turbo...You need to build and fabricate special exhaust manifold
cooling and oil lines...computer?? wastegate valve???...will it effect EFI
??? I put an SVO 2.3L from a Mustang in a 94 ranger it'll keep up with a
strong 5.0 mustang!!!

Subject: ADMIN: Survey Results Working (Beta)

I've finally got the survey results working. Rather than continue
to use the brain-dead CGI script for results (it was giving very
bizarre results) I wrote a C++ program that sorts a 450k file
into survey percentages and builds a 300k+ HTML result file.
Your browser displays this file. Fairly quick considering that
its doing about several million parses (takes about 10 seconds) on
a multi-user Sun Workstation. This is a beta version. Although
I've been programming for years this is my first complete dynamic
web content program. It took about 1 day of coding. I think most
everyone will like it. It will be greatly enhanced over the course
of the weekend, with sorting and better catagorization.

Give it a try (its not directly linked on the web site so you
have to use this URL):

http://www.ford-trucks.com/survey/results/t.shtml

Let me know what you think and give me any suggestions.

I'm also working on a program which will allow password protected
access to the web site. This will allow me to give free web
space to users, within reason. Lastly, I hope to replace the
Java chat server with my own C/C++ program. Both these projects
are considerably harder than the survey program.
