I have a serious question,will a 2.3 engine bolt up to the
same transmission
as a 2.0, as I have a 2.0-'86 Ford Ranger now,and I am considering getting a
2.3,but the transmission is still good {and I don't want to spend extra
$$,that I don't need to} and want to reuse everything else when I do an
engine swap. please e-mail the answers,thank you in advance.

Are either of these API certified oils? Why not go with Mobil 1, which
offers both 10-30 and 0-30 and for sure has certified oils in those ranges?
Cheaper, too.

Hello all.

I am a recent subscriber to this list, and I would love to hear from
those listmembers who are very familiar with the various attributes of
the different-years Bronco fullsize.

I am interested in acquiring one of these, for the purpose of extreme
offroad use, and the truck will be built up for this.

I am not familiar with the various transmissions/axles, etc that Ford
used for the Bronco, but I'm looking for the beefiest that are available.

For example, did the NP205 ever get put into a Bronco? If not, can they
be added to one?

How about axles? Does the venerable Ford 9" reside in the rears of any
Broncos? What are the best years for front axles?

I know this is the eighty-up list, but how good are the 78-79 models?

Specifically, someone told me that 87-up Broncos have better fuel
injection than the 86-down? True?

Thanks for any advice, input, etc.

Dana

I use Mobil 1 5w-30 in my '93 Ranger, and have been very pleased with. I
change it and filter every 7500 miles.

I have an 87 bronco II xlt that I've been having a continuing problem
with. One day it started bogging and hesitating and blowing some black
smoke out of the tailpipe. I had almost every sensor changed(tps,egr
valve etc.) and have even changed the fuel filter. All that seemed to
clear it up for a while. Then I noticed when I drove a long distance or
was towing my boat that the problem would reaccur. Then the next day
when the truck had cooled down or something, it would run o.k.. So I
delt with that for a while trying not to tow my boat to far.or take my
truck on long drives on the highway, basically just driving it back and
fourth to work. Just recently I was driving home from work and it
happened again. I thought by the next morning the truck would be o.k.
but half way to work it happened once again. It seems like the problem
is getting worse. The last couple of weeks the weather has been really
hot. As I mentioned earlier I thought it may be some kind of heating up
problem but I just don't know. I could really use some help on this one
I just don't know what else to try. I was thinking maybe the cattalic
converter is messed up or something. I am getting ready to burn this
thing. If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

P.S. I towed my boat last year and had no problems. I don't think that
is the problem anyway because it happened without the boat on it.

P.S.S I apoligize for the long message but this is a real complicated
problem that no one can seem to figure out.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give.

Subject: Shocks/tires, 97 F-350
Message-ID:

Since I have some money to spend, let me ask a few questions:

Does anyone have any experience with replacing the shocks on a 97 F-350 4x4
Powerstroke regular cab or similar? For a one-ton truck, it drives fairly
well, but I'm sure there's room for improvement in ride and handling without
sacrificing any of the trucks ability (payload, towing capacity, etc.). For
this reason, I was considering the Rancho 9000s with the five-way adjustable
ride selector. Does anyone have any experience with these or other brands or
aftermarket shocks on this type of pickup? Would upgrading net me any
signifcant improvements?

Is there any general opinion on tire upgrades for these trucks? I was
interested in putting something beefier on, but I was hoping to step up only
in width (currently 9.25" according to my calculation for 235 85 R 16 E) and
not in height (currently ~31.5" according to my calculations). Additionally,
since I don't want to go hog-wild with spending money, I would like to retain
the stock rims. For this reason, I was considering a 265 series tire, but I
have yet to find one with a similar E load range as the Firestones that came
with the truck. Are there any recommendations on particular sizes and/or
brands? Is it important to upgrade to a tire with the same load range as the
Firestones? Again, remember that I don't want to sacrifice the truck's
capacities.

Finally, any other recommendations for suspension upgrades (short of lifting
the truck) including bushings, etc?

I realize that these questions are fairly general and that there's varying
opinion on tires and shocks, but I am looking to gain some ideas
aboutupgrading since I've never done this before. Thanks in advance.

My truck:
1993 F-150 SuperCab SWB
5.8L V8

Truck History:
The guy I had bought the truck from was not the ideal maintenance
minded person that he should've been. He had let the brake pads
get into the rotors a few times. So soon after I got the truck,
I went ahead and replaced the rotors, pads, bearings, rear drums,
everything
except the calipers. The dust seals had become torn about half
way around.

Current Problem:
I am experiencing a problem with my brakes. Lately, when I press
the brake pedal, the brakes seem to grab okay but then release
and immediately grab again, hold for a couple of seconds then release
and grab again as if being 'pumped' and release quickly. This produces

a hard 'pounding' sensation. My first reaction was that I had a bad
caliper, so I just rebuilt both. Caliper looked perfect when broken
down
and inspected. No pits in cylinders, all surfaces were smooth . . .
I reinstalled the calipers adding new pads also. Problem still exists.

Any idea/direction on this problem is welcome.

Thanks.

Thanks to all who answered my question about the Ford Ranger with a
second gear problem...turns out that it was low on fluid! Should have
checked this first just didn't think it would be low already. But anyway
It was low so added some and works great now! Helpful hint use a spray

Well, Randy...
Maybe you can chk out the Hollander Interchange Manuals. I don't have
much experience with these, but they were used when I had to find a new
pinion yoke (i shattered mine...) for the Chubbelle. I would think that
they would list if you tranny would cross to either one. THE ONE that
was used for my search, was the junkyard where I got the yoke. Maybe
you can get them to look it up for you (have part number?), and tell
you...just appear "interested" in finding one... ;-)

Hope it helps...

Hello Peter,

Message-ID:

I am a long time Ford owner, first time Ford Truck owner. I just bought a
1995 F150 (Reg Cab/SB 4X4 300 I6). I am wondering how accurate the fuel
gages generally are. Mine seems to be about 6 gallons off - at both the half
point and empty. I know Ford built in some cushion, coinciding with their
road side assistance program, but a 30% error seems ridiculous. I have 6K
left on the bumper to bumper, so if it needs to be replaced, I want to have
it done soon.

Also, I read somwhere that the mpg is rated at 19 - highway. I getting more
like 16 - highway. Does anybody else out there with a 300 I-6 get better
mileage? My tires are properly inflated and I have a tonneau cover.



Thanks!

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Todd,
I can't help you with the shocks, but I can give you a little advice on
tires.

For the load range E, at 80 psi, you can put about 3042 lbs/tire or 6084
lbs/axle (single tires, not duals). A Load range D tire, at 65 psi, you
can put 1748 lbs/tire or 5246 lbs/axle. Chances are, your rear axle GAWR
is above 5246 lbs (for my 250HD, the rear axle is rated for 6050 lbs).
Therefore, if you do not want to lose the weight rating, you will have to
stick with the Load range E tires. However, if your rear axle has dual
tires, then you can up the rating for the Load range D to 9,524 lbs/axle at
65 psi. In either case you will probably be fine on the front axle, since
almost any load you put into the bed of truck will actually reduce some of
the weight on the front axle.

my two cents worth.

Howdy all. I got an 89 Bronco 302 5 speed. Just bought it about 2
weeks ago. Great truck except for when I let off the gas pedal the revs
don't drop right away. rpm's stay up for about a second, makes shifting
a real pain. I'm gonna connect a vacuum gauge this weekend to see if it
is a vacuum leak. Anybody heard of this before, maybe it's a bad sensor
or something?

Hmm...
didja bleed them good? you know, start at the wheel farthest from the
master cylinder (usually, right rear), and work your way around? I'm not
sure if that's the way you do it on truck, i would think so, but I'm
just getting back to my Ford roots *grin*. If you have, hmmm...I'm out
of suggestions, other than maybe check your lines, make sure none of
them are showing signs of "ballooning" out--it's happened to me before,
but on a car that was made in 1970,and brake lines that _looked_
original. Might not be too far out of the question...
