The October issue (now on news-stands) of Truckin' magazine
has a really nice write-up about Ford Truck Enthusiasts (thanks
Gary!). The article is about web sites and they really
complimented us. I wanted to send a public "thank you" to
Truckin Magazine and also let the list members know so they
can check it out.

On a '99 Powerstroke with the PTO option on the automatic
transmission, where is the auxiliary powertrain control module located
(aux idle control)?

It's dealer or user installable. There's a bracket that comes with the
unit. Mounts to the bottom 2 screws of the ash-tray, and a third mounting
point that you need to drill a hole for.

If you have the 40-20-40 bench seat, and have a small child sitting in the
center, then the Aux Idle control is kind of intrusive. Captain's chairs are
not an issue.

There's a cable that plugs into a conncector behind the removable
panel, which connects to the control box.

see here for a picture:

We are in possession of 2 spy shots taken at the recent dealer meetings in
Orlando,
where the new F650 and F750 were introduced. Since our man on the scene had
to
take SPY photos, the pictures are a little dim, but you can clearly see the
body lines of
these exciting new trucks. To the best of our knowledge, the 650 series
will be
#26,000 GVWR, and the 750 series will be #33,000 GVWR. They should offer CAT,
Cummins and International power, and Allison automatics should be available
in
addition to several manual transmissions.

The Aux. Idle control comes in a box and you have to put it where you want
it. Most times this is used it is in wreckers or ambulances that have
radios and other things installed aftermaket.

Subject: FTE 97up - Trailer light problem

Have a 98 F150 with a factory installed trailer harness. Brake lights do not
work on my trailer when hooked to my F150 (worked initially). When hooked to
my Jeep brake lights work. Could only get a voltage reading off the 4 pin
adapter on the F150 for the running light (not brake lights). Did an
resistance reading on the 4 pin adapter and it has continuity.

Assumption is a blown fuse--could not determine from owners manual which fuse
for sure. Called dealer service manager and he thought there was a seperate
fuse for the trailer connector. He did not know for sure or which fuse. He
asked that I bring the truck in. The soonest they can look at it is 8 days
away.

Does anyone happen to know if their is a seperate fuse for the trailer
connector that would control the brake lights? By the way the F150 brake
lights work just fine.

P.S. Suppose it could be a trailer short problem that blew the fuse (if there
is one) in the F150 because since I have been pulling my boat with it I have a
problem in that the left running light (not brake light) burns out often.
(Make sense??)

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

They look pretty good! Sort of a mix of the traditional big truck look
with the new Superduty look.

Is it just me or does the orange (F650) look like a VW Bug on serious
steroids?

I have a 98 Expedition EB w/5.4 and am using the Gibson cat back system
along with a K&N filter.
The Gibson is bullet proof. Easy install, sounds great and improved
mileage. I got mine
from http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://accessconnect.com/index.htm

I beg to differ, I wrapped by Gibson exhaust around a rock (stupid
4-wheeling rocks), but I love it, had it repaired, and it looks good as
new.

FTE's web site is kinda stale. It will be undergoing a face lift
soon. If you'd like to contribute any of the following for the
update:

1. Book or magazine review
2. Tech article. This can range from simple to complex. If you
installed a K&N on your 98, added a shift kit to your ride or
raised it 2 feet - almost anything you have to give, we'll
use.
3. Information or programs, click "misc" on the site for examples.

As usual, you retain the copyright and we'll take if off the site
if at some time in the future you ask us to.

In the engine compartment over the left side fender behind the Power
Distribution Box there is an Engine Mini Fuse Block. It is the box that is
perpindicular to the power box. There 2 mini fuses a 5 amp and a 20 amp. Check
the 20 amp fuse, it is the trailer tow Stop/Turn lamps fuse. If it is not burnt
try the #16 fuse in the Power Distribution Box (40 amp maxi fuse) it is the fuse
that feeds the above mentioned Engine mini Fuse box and the Trailer Tow Battery....
