Hi,

I have a 1981 F-100 (300 cui I-6) with a 3 speed overdrive transmission and
I have another '81 F-100 for parts. The parted F-100 transmission has a
broken upper gear (reverse) and I want to repair it to have a spare
transmission. Does anyone know how to remove the upper gears, and where I
might be able to get a illustrated parts breakdown or good visual reference
on Ford transmissions? Any manual I've looked in doesn't cover or barely
overviews transmissions. I'd like to replace the necessary gears but I
don't want to force anything and damage anything else on it. I'd appreciate
any info.

Don't forget to check the little things. Check to make sure
throttle cable is the same length, switch any sensors (coolant etc.)
over.

I want to install dual exhausts on an 80-F150 351w. I'm told that Ford has never
put duals on their pickups. True? I live in Virginia and state inspections
are tuff to get around, any suggestions (no, don't want to split after muffler
or any of that other make do stuff, I want the efficiency and torque of a
true dual system).

Can one of you EPA types comment, I want to use headers, twin converters and
mufflers. Now, Aint dis cleaner dan de ol'factory singel pipe? Looks like there
should be a way for a guy to accomplish this without joining Tim McVay and crew
(Its just a bad joke, OK).

I don't know what the laws in Virginia are concerning state inspections of

emissions office and they claim that if I have duel converters and pass
the emissions test that I will have no problems.

If you've been looking for a source for this legendary "c/rust buster," I
finally found them --

Kano Labs, in Tennessee: (800) 211-1373

They've got a Squirt Special on right now, which includes a gallon of
AeroKroil, a 10 oz. aerosol and a hand held trigger spray for $27.20, which
includes shipping.

I wondered why so many people spoke in reverent tones about this stuff -
yet I couldn't find it anywhere. It's because Kano Labs normally is an
industrial supplier and they deal direct. Their reputation was built on
AeroKroil, used in the aircraft industry. With the ability to sneak into
spaces as small as one millionth of an inch, it really can penetrate crusty
parts.

The steering column to my '88 Taurus is beginning to squeak when I turn

this? Will removing the two screws which hold the steering wheel in place

checked by unplugging the wire from the sending unit and ground it on
the truck somewhere if the gauge goes up the the gauge is fine and the
sending unit is bad, more than likely this is the problem

Read with interest the problem with the Bronco battery. Consider
yourself lucky, thus far, if you can get the battery to last two years.

I'm still trying to find the cause and solution to an electrical problem
I'm having with my 1992 Ford F-150 Flareside. Bought it used in 1995,
with original battery. It was/is a beauty of a truck (looks like brand
new).

Anyway, the battery has died on us 15 times since early February. We've
put in five (5) batteries since November, 1996 (Replaced the original
1992 battery in May of 1996). It's been at two Ford dealerships and a
Unocal Mechanic, all who can't find the problem. The Ford Dealership
checked the charging system, extensively. They told us it was the
aftermarket alarm system, so we had it taken out, and a Ford approved
keyless entry system installed by one of their vendors. (Of course, the
doors now lock automatically after about 5 minutes.... with the engine
off.... which we don't think it should do, should it?

They even took out 10 fuses (including the one that lights up the
dashlights, blinkers, etc.) and had us drive the truck without them. It
didn't even last 5 days before the battery died again. They gave us
back the truck saying, "Yep, you have a big problem, it's even died on
us, but we don't know what the problem is or how to fix it.". Calling
Ford's Hotline has been fruitless, other than to document the
information. They suggested we try a different dealership, which we
just did. (The first dealership has been trying to find the problem
since Feb. 2, 1997, and they've had the truck more than we have!)

The most recent Ford Dealership, after less than 24 hours, said "It's
the Alternator".... which of course, we'd already replaced in May, 1996,
along with the Ignition switch.... so, we said "okay, right.... everyone
else tested the alternator and said it was fine.... but if YOU think
that's the problem, replace it, and guarantee it'll fix the problem or
you'll give us our money back...." They agreed, so now we're waiting to
see how long the truck will run.

Anyone with any similiar problems, insight for PROPER solution and
repair, answers as to whether or not the keyless entry systems should
automatically lock the doors after 5 or 10 minutes or so... would love
to hear from you!

Message-ID:

I suppose this is old news to most of you, but I just found the Summer
issue of Ford Truckin' magazine and on pages 27 and 58-59 are two of the
most beautiful trucks I've ever seen.

Page 27 is "White Diamond," a truck SO WHITE, I think they must have
airbrushed a shadow under the picture.

Page 58 - "White Lightning." A beautiful three color paint job. It looks
all dressed up blacktie, white on the bottom, black on the top, a couple of
accents in mint green. The interior is very retro/flapper, Deco. Totally
sanitary. It has approximately half the world's supply of chrome under the
hood.

I've never owned a white truck. Seeing these two - I'm tempted.

(Whoops - I just noticed I've got this going to the 80s-and-up list. I'm
not sure how to crosspost. Be warned - these are older trucks. This issue
is the F-100 special.)

I've got an intermitent problem with my '88 F150 that might possibly be the
same problem with yours.

I've noticed that from time to time my electric fuel pump continues to run
after I park. When this happens, I pop the engine hood and hit the relay
packs sitting right behind the air cleaner. Aparently, one of the two
relays is sticking but I have yet to figure out which one.

It happened on my 1990 F-150. The problem was that the bottom part of
the sending unit came loose from the top part. New unit the light went
out. There was never anything wrong with the anti-lock.

Same may be true for the temp.
