If anyone would like a IRS for their Ford (Now who would want something
like that? :) ) check out a site that has a system for sale that will
literally bolt right in place of your stock springs. Seems to be very
high quality. Pricey though! $5300!! Due to be available in April.
Their site is www.constantvelocity.com. Check it out!

This may have been ask in the group before. But does anybody know who
makes a Billet Aluminum Grille for the 1987 to 1991 that comes with
Cut-Outs and Mounting for Driving Lights in the Grille??? I've only seen
this version of the Aluminum Billet Grille on a couple custom F-350
Turbo Diesel Crew Cabs. Several Catalogs have the Standard Billet
Grille. Anyboby who has such a grille or knows where I can get one I'd
appreciate a reply here or directly.

Subject: EGR problem on 90 4.9 six

For quite a while my 90 truck has been missing at 35-55 mph. I have
done all the normal things you might expect with no real improvement. A
poster to this net suggested that I try plugging the vacuum line to the
EGR and that did correct the missing, although now I have a little
"stumble" upon first accelerating from dead stop. While I have all the
Ford shop manuals, I am a bit confused as to where I might look for the
vacuum problem. The EGR appears to be operating properly but it sure
runs better with the vacuum plugged than it does with the vacuum hooked
up.

Any suggestions?

TIA

Get a vacuum pump (hand-helds can be had for ~$30) and test your EGR
diaphram... if you can't hold vacuum, replace. I check ALL vacuum
operated valves when trying to track down a vacuum problem... sometimes
the things that leak come from the darnest places: vacuum advance open,
A/C vane actuator, heater actuator, etc.

Take care.

Subject: idling problem

I own a 1985 f150 4x4 w/302 EFI. I have only owned the truck a couple of
months.
When I first got the truck it wouldn't always idle in park. I run a
couple of bottles of
injector cleaner (fuel additive) thru the system and it helped. But now
the engine runs
very fast in park and when I shift into gear the engine all but dies.
Does anyone have
any suggestions???

I have a 91 F-150, the owners manual states that the step bumer has a class
III hitch rating. I looked and the bumper and hitch box seem pretty sturdy but
class II seems a little extreme. Can anyone help me figure this one out?

Personally Flapp, I don't understand how they rate those. I
wouldn't try pulling my 2500 lb camper w/the bumper for
sure. But it seems fine for log splitters are the like.
Also, you want the top of the ball about 18" from the ground
for most ball hitch trailers and most truck bumpers are too
high for that. I know my F-250HD 4x4 is! In fact, I have a
7" drop on my 2" receiver which is already about 2" below
the westin 6" drop step bumper. Hope I could help,
Randy

J. C. Whitney catalog shows two different hitch boxes that mount on
bumpers and both are rated as Class III at GTW 5000 lb and Tongue weight
of 500 lb. Hope this helps.

Subject: Older Ranger-Seat & Floor Mat

Some time ago there was a huge discussion on floor mats. Without
re-doing it to death, any recommendations (other that Mr. Dealer)
where I could get a full-size rubber mat and insulation for
an '85 Ford Ranger? How does JC Whitney do for this sorta thing?
(Haven't had a catalog of theirs in years.)

Also - anyone in the Balto/DC area who could recommend a good source
for a front bench seat (other than Bowie Truck Parts-don't get
me started) could you mail me off list, since I don't wanna catch
hell for wasting bandwidth with a 'local' question.

Thanks in advance--
