in magazines not much fair. I mean most of the time they get sooped up cars
or different years and they start telling you that try getting the exact same
thing and that they are fair comparison`s.

It's called the leverage of advertising. Ford and GM buy millions of dollars
worth of full page ads. Publishers do whatever is necessary to keep their
business.

It's too bad Consumer Reports does not evaluate and rate 3/4 ton or larger
trucks. Many think CR is biased but at least the evaluations are based on
real data with little subjective input.

Over the years reading CR I've often wondered about some of the things that
they worry about / include in their evaluations. Some of it seems pretty
petty and minor reading the articles. What I've found tho is that some of
these petty things are a real annoyance when driving the vehicle or using
the appliance. I've always found that their gig's are pretty much on the
mark as far as handling and performance goes. I wouldn't ever use them as
the ultimate authority but their opinions need to be considered.

By the way, where is all the e-mail traffic on this site that I've come to
expect? Where I used to se 10/15 messages a day it's now down to one.

Hi
Did anyone try this web site? http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.ford-outlet.com/
I sent an e-mail for them asking them about the license plate frame. Didn't hear
anything from them yet. I want to know if there is other good web site out there for
Ford parts.
Thanks.

Subject: FTE 97up - Oil Filter Efficiency

Someone had asked information on the Effifiency of Filters used on the
99-00 Superdutys w/ PSD.

I found a link in Hastings about just this topic. Click and learn about SAE
Filter Specifications.

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.hastingsfilter.com/engineering/98_4.html

There are many other Hastings links as well.

Scott.

Additional: If you want to filter out the smallest possible particles you
will HAVE to use a By-pass filter. It would be impossible to filter this
small and still meet the flow rate needed by engines unless the filter was
the size of a 30 gallon drum. I know you have the room , but I sure don't.
And once you drop below about 1/4 micron or so ( I will have to double check
that number) the additional effort is just wasted because the oil film is
now much thicker than the contaminant.
