Subject: FTE 97up - SD Brake system

What brake system is supposed to be in a F350, DRW, V-10 ? My window
sticker & dealer's order book say Hydro-Boost, but mine was delivered
with Vacuum boost...Which works lousy. Factory says vacuum is correct
for all gas units with Hydro-boost "optional".

Wasn't that once upon a time the basis for a lawsuit against Chrysler, several
accidents blamed on hitting the gas instead of the brake because the brake was
closer to the accelerator than people expected? I think the lawsuit was
thrown out.........

I just looked the 97B16 recall up. It is only on certain Power Stroke
F-Series. Apparently if the air cleaner is allowed to get EXTREMELY dirt
(Plugged) it can suck in the sides of the filter and allow unfiltered air to
pass. They will put new filter retainers in and on some trucks (depends on
witch air cleaner lid you have) they will replace the air cleaner lid so it
can't collapse.

Subject: FTE 97up - 99 Powerstroke Fuel Filter

I have a brand new F250 99 Powerstroke with about 500 miles
on it. This is my first diesel and I am having a problem
locating the fuel filter. The manual is not very descriptive.
Could someone give me a general spot to look in, standing in
front of the truck, facing the engine?
Is it easier to search for it from underneath?

Also, I checked at the Autozone and HiLo in my area (South of
Houston, Texas) claim they will not stock any 99 specific
parts such as air, oil and fuel filters until the last
quarter of this year. Are any of the parts from the 1997
usable? Or do I need to purchase this stuff from the dealer
right now.

I appreciate the help.

Steve

Subject: FTE 97up - ESOF or Manual

I like the idea of ESOF but it sure looks fragile, vacuum lines to the
wheels and that GEM computer module. After looking at the manual the hubs
lock via a soleniod and some plastic tubing, and a different hub from the
manual model. Any know how much it would cost to buy those hubs, lines and
solenoid. That way you have manual transfer case and both auto and locking
hubs.

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - Captain Chairs

I ordered a Lariat CC 350 SD with the leather captains chairs. My current truck is
a 93 F350 XLT with cloth captains chairs and it is very comfortable. I sat in
cloth and leather 40-20-40 and they just didn't fit. the center fold down was
just too high for an arm rest for me. I haven't gotten an eta on the truck yet,
been ordered about 5 weeks. I did get a chance to sit in one with the leather
captains chairs and I like them much better than the 40-20-40.
