So, pretty good site ay! Have you used it for long? Anyhow... I bought
the tires in Chilliwack. A place called "KENS" Tire and Wheel... They were
a really good deal, $162.00 each ( this included mounting and balancing and
rotation every 10000km.) I had a set of these before I bought the new ones
AND they're GREAT. Same tread as a Mud Terrian, but narrower (fits your
stock rim) They come with raised white lettering... and I've had several
others look at them and ask alot about them... Gotta have a good tire to
get back up the valley when they shut the Freeway down during the snowstorms
(I work in Burnaby)
live in CHWK.
My buddy has a 88 F250 4x4 dsl., and he just bought a set...
Good luck finding them anywhere else... they bring em up from Tacoma Wash.
takes about a week. And are nice guys to deal with. Tell em I sent ya...
SEE YA! " Let your fingers do the walkin... "
PS> Also know a good spring shop... if ya ever want to do your front springs,
this will bring your front end up a couple inches (level ride...)

I have a 95 F-150, 302, with 42,000 miles. About a week ago the timing chain
broke and bent 6 valves in the process. Everyone I talk to says that this
shouldn't have happened, at least not at 42K. I talked to a dealership and
all they want to say is "You should have bought the extended warrenty". Does
anyone else an opinion on this? Also, is there any Ford customer service
numbers of addresses I could complain too?

Sure is, addresses are in your owners manual along with phone numbers if
you don't have yours or can't find it let me know and I will drag mine
out and get them for you. Sorry about your misfortune, and it should not
have happened not even with that other brand of vechicles. They are
usually good for 100,000 or so than they become strecthed usually don't
break

Ask the Ddealership Service Manager if he can speak to his "CSM" (Customer
Service Manager) from the regional office regarding any "After Warranty
Adjustment". In short will Ford assist with the cost of the repair. Yes The
timing chain should not have broken and unless you close to "red-line" you
shouldn't have damaged any valves.

Which Fuel pump did you replace some of the early electirc fuel pump systems
had in tank pumps as well as a frame mounted booster pump. Also you could
have a filter in the bottom of the fuel switch over valve. The bottom of the
valve is a sediment bowl, and may have a filter in it also. If it is a large
black valve assembly carefully unscrew the bottom, and throw away the filter.

Subject: Stock T-case and axles
Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

I am currently in the process of restoring an old 82' 4x4 F-250 that I
bought and I need to replace the stock T-case and axles. Some moron pulled
the T-case and both the front and rear axles and replaced the rear with a
dump truck rear end. I wish to restore the original factory axles and gear
ratios, but I don't know what model T-case or type of axles for the '82
F-250 is? The truck currently has a rear gear ratio of 5.20. What was the
factory gear ratio for this truck.


Thanks.

June 1997 issue of Super Ford has a write up of installing the mass air
system. List price is $679.95 but they said you couldget it for around
$579.00. I ordered the catalog and am thinking about the same
conversion along with a new throttle body (79mm) for my '96 F-150 5.0l.
