The 1999 Source Book only lists two coolers for the 4R100. One is a 20
Plate for Diesel engines and the other is a 26 Plate for Gas apps. They are
made by Long manufacturing.
There are also integral coolers (in radiator) for all auto apps and the 6
speed manual also has a cooler.

While the answer implies that the transmission cooler is smaller for the
Diesel, is this really true? I would have thought the Diesel might have the
larger cooler, based the fact it might be in more heavy towing situations.

Or is it just a space issue, since the Diesel has this big intercooler/
aftercooler to deal with?

Has anyone had success in tracking a vehicle on the Union Pacific of CSX
tracking system? If so, how accurate is it?

I have a VIN # and a boxcar # that I believe belongs to Union Pacific.

Any input is appreciated.

Jack

Hi Jack,

Go to: http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.uprr.com
Click on Customer information
Click on Intermodal ( I always use this one, others probably work just as well
)
Click on public equipment trace
Enter your rail car number

The system is accurate, however, you have to get used to references to
obscure and obsolete towns, for instance: Hodge, Texas is a particular point
in Fort Worth, Texas, exactly where, I don't know. Other than that, they do
use the current State system, no references to Territories! So you can at
least track it across the States. We do use it to track steel shipments.

Best Regards,
Robert

I assume your talking about tracking a Ford Truck that you ordered.
How did you get the boxcar #?

Subject: FTE 97up - Super Duty Ordering Question

Recently I placed an order for a 1999 F350 PSD with a local
dealership. At that time I received a printout labeled "VEHICLE ORDER
CONFIRMATION." Everything appears to be correct as far as the desired
model and options being specified. What I am wondering is whether
there is anything else I should request from the dealer to verify that
everything is in order. They are saying it will probably take 3 to 4
months to get the truck (but they aren't making any promises.) I
would hate to find out 4 months from now that something got screwed up
and have to start all over again.

Thanks in advance.

I got it from Ford by giving them some info that my dealer gave me when I
order the truck. Call 1-800-392-FORD. Then they gave me the status code
which was the rail car #. I could have got it from the dealer easier but my
source was out of town this week, and I couldn't ask of it from anyone else
there.

I did this. It shows the last update on 8/21/98 at "eightenthst, KS". I
assume this is at 18th St in Kansas City, MO which is near the factory.
