Help! I can't find the ECU . Have looked behind the drivers side kick
panel and behind the glove compartment but no luck. Anyone with a 1998
f-150 that has gone to a super chip and knows the location of the ECU ,
please share this info . Thanks for any help. mikes53 juno.com

What time did it reach your drive way?
etc. etc...don't forget the details.

Subject: FTE 97up - puddles

Hi. I recently bought a new '98 F150, and after running the air conditioner,
it will leave a pretty good sized puddle of water in the drive way. It drips
down from the area of the transmission. It is just plain water, so I guess
it is just condensation from the AC, but none of the other vehicles I've
owned have dripped this much. It will drip pretty steadily for 10 or 15
minutes after running it on a hot day. Is this normal? It has been an
unusually hot & humid summer, but I never see this much water from our other
vehicles. Thanks in advance for your input.

My '98 F-150 SC 4.6 does the same thing. The difference in "puddle size"
between this truck and my previous vehicles is quite noticeable. I've
noticed that the water must also accumulate up on the truck, too; after
parking in the garage in the evening, the puddle eventually dries, but when
I pull out the next morning it drops a bunch more water. I haven't taken
the time to see where its sitting, to find out if that might do any damage
over time. Anyone know?

Subject: FTE 97up - New to List

Hello everyone, this is my first posting to the list. I just ordered a '99
F150 XLT Sport, 4.6L 5-Speed and am really excited about working on it. I
am curious to know what kind of 5-speed is in the truck (i.e. Borg Warner,
Tremec, Ford, etc.). Does anyone know of any transmission upgrades such as
high performance clutch plates and shorter throw shifters? I know it's a
truck (I don't expect Mustang like shifting!), however it seems much
sloppier than my Dakota. Also, I am curious to know what the Owner's
manual says about a breaking in period for the drivetrain in general.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

John Walker
