Well I got a new Battery last night and installed in the Bronco. I took my
test light and attached it to the negative battery cable, and took the
probe and made sure it was firmly in contact with the negative battery
post, negative cable was not attached to the battery.. The test light did
not light at all. I even tool the test light and held it between the
positive and negative posts of the battery just to make sure the test light
worked. It worked. I tried connecting the test light between the negative
cable and the negative post several times. The test light never came on not
even a faint glow.

So, does anybody have any ideas why I have to replace the battery every ten
months or so?? So far I have gone through three batteries in two years, the
battery usually develops a short in one cell. Is it just due to the fact
that I live in the Arizona Desert and the heat is killing the battery?? Is
there something I should check for in the Charging System??

I am at a loss, which is nothing unusual for me.

Got a test light? Disconnect the negative battery cable and connect the
test
light between the battery post and the cable end. If the light is bright
Yes
you have a draw. Remember that several electrical components have memory
circuits. Like the radio and the EEC (electronic engine control). By
disconnecting the fuses, when the light goes out or dims down then you've
found which circuit has the drain. Good luck

The Ford F-series (F-150, -250, -350) is the best-selling vehicle in the
US. That means there are more of these trucks sold than ALL other
vehicles marketed to the end consumer.

You hit the nail on the head. To satisfy the environmentalists, the lead
content in batteries is way down, and heat, not cold is causing premature
battery failure these days. Shop for a high temperature battery, buy one
with a stiff warrenty, and then stick it to them.

Hi Keith, Could be as simple as replacing your battery terminals and wire
brushing the ends of the terminal wires. Corrosion would not allow proper
charging of battery. Inexpensive thing to try. then have charging system
tested. Good luck.

Jim, we are psoting all years model trucks from 1980 to current to:
fordtrucks80up lofcom.com

You were "over charged". I get my oil and rotation for $25, and take it
to Brake Check to have it checked for free.

Message-ID:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

I just signed up to this list, and I'm glad it's here.
Gotta 'cost-benefit' dilemma here.

The truck is a 1985 Ford Ranger 'S' (aka 'DC Parking
Enforcement Model', 'cos it's what the meter maids
use). Bought new. No options at all, not even A/C -
I added a shell and a radio later. I've had 209,000 good
miles out of it, mostly highway. On Sunday the clutch
(original!) burned out; I knew it was coming, but was
trying to hold out till my wife and I settled on our house.
Almost made it (we should settle next week).

Anyway, I'm pretty sure I'll get the clutch done, but I was
wondering if anyone on the list could gove me an idea of
other things to watch out for in the course of repair
or afterwards. I expect the clutch replacement will be more
than the resale value of the truck.

Since I bought it it's had valve seals replaced, rebuilt
carburetor (remember those?), tie rods and drag link (you can
lube 'em now), rebuilt starter. Also timing belt, water pump
& exhaust (all within last year). One problem is that the 5th
gear overdrive has not worked properly in almost 5 years (it
snaps out of 5th, so I just don't use it.) This is one thing
about puting in a clutch - I wonder if its worth it if the trans
will follow close behind..

This has been a very reliable vehicle (aside from the Mazda-
made trans), and I really don't want to raise my insurance
rates and debt load until our other car is paid off
next year. Anyway, I could use some constructive opinions
and/or advice at this point.

clutches and the rear bearing. I would recommend getting a dual friction
