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

This message has content relavent to both lists so I'm posting it on both:

1. Someone sent me a nice picture of a 1995 Ranger XLT. I have the
picture but I've lost the original email. If who ever it is will
email me some information about the truck, I'll put it up on the
site ASAP.

2. Someone offered to sell me a 67-72 tailgate... again, lost the
message.

3. Here's the best one: someone just posted an ad for a 302 V8 block
for $10!!! I'm getting out of the way as there will be a stampede
for it..... Follow the forsale link on the web site, 1979 and
older items.

I'm forwarding this question as I'm an FE V8 F-series person and don't know much about the Rangers. Perhaps some of you Ranger guys have an answer?

Could you help me set a distributor that was not aligned when taken out?
2.9L- the book says to align rotor with number one cap terminal, but at the same time the stator and armature poles are to be aligned, this can not be done. Engine is set at 10 degrees BTDC on compression stroke.

Years ago, when I was working on motorcycles and import cars, NGK came out with the HOT U plug,with a "u" groove in the ground electrode.
These were a genuine improvement over standard plugs; they lasted longer, and "broke up" less at higher RPMs (over 7K RPM or so). In the cars, they also lasted longer, although the high RPM qualities never got a chance to be demonstrated.
My '92 Sport is getting to have a bad knock, and I'm about to try new plug wires (I seriously doubt the claimed benefits of, for example, "Splitfire" plugs for this problem). I'll do it this week; if I remember, I'll post results.

Hi all- I am new to the list and was hoping someone could help me with a minor upgrade for my 92 F150 4x4. It's equipped with the 5.0 and 5 speed manual tranny but no factory tachometer. I like the factory look and would like to swap instrument clusters to get it. Has anyone done this and if so whats all involved ?

thanks,


Tim Dahm

Anyone have any good experience with aftermarket brake pads?I have a 1996 F-150 4X2 Supercab 5.8 E4OD and the stock pads leave a lot of brake dust on my chrome wheels.Does anyone offer an aftermarket ram-air kit for this truck or should i just use a K&N air filter.This truck has plenty of power but more would be nice. :-) -- JAMES 1987 Ranger 2.9 5

Does anyone have any experience putting 4WD on a new F450 with one of the 'ship through' dealers, so it's not a factory installation, but before it's delivered to the dealer? Any ideas of the cost involved?

Well, what does he have, and what do you have in the way of trucks and engine sizes? Just tell him what I tell everyone that knocks my Ranger, "Like a rock?!, more like a rolling stone!" or "Only little boys wear bowties."

It's probably about time to change the transmission fluid in my '92 F-250 with the E40D automatic and am wondering about the possibility of doing this myself. Is this best left to a transmission shop or is it something that is doable under a shadetree? I don't even know how to drain the fluid. Is there a drain plug or do you have to remove a cover? Should the filter be replaced at the same time and how is that done? Answers from anyone who has done this in the past are greatly appreciated.

I've always thought Ford had more tourque and HP, but chevy had more stylish body styles and engine choices, plus more admenities prompting me to think that Blue Oval Boys were more geared to Work than Play like the Bowties.
