Subject: FTE 97up - Dog Barrier

Hi Folks,
Hope somebody out there can help me with this! I have a 2000 F-150 Lariat
Supercap. It has the leather captains chairs and center console with CD
player. I'd like to be able to transport my Yellow Labrador Retriever in the
back without her being able to come forward. Does anybody out there know of a
barrier that would be easy to install and remove when not in use, that would
fit my truck? Please e-mail me with any replies as I'd like to get one very
soon.

Thanks,
Russ Martin

Subject: FTE 97up - ADMIN: Charity Event

Well, its that time of year again. Ford Truck Enthusiasts
would like to use the power of all our list members to
help someone in need during this time of year. If you
know someone in dire straits, whether they are a list
member or not, please email me (off the list to keep the
traffic down) at kpayne ford-trucks.com.

I'll present all the charity submissions on Sunday on the
website, minus names, and we'll vote on who we want to
support. Last year, we raised about $750 in two weeks
for a very worthy cause. This year, I'm sure we can do
even more. Together, we have great strength.

Regards,
Ken Payne

I see reference to a horsepower increase in the 2000 model
V10, some say 35hp, some 50hp. Does anyone know a site that
verifies this. Anyone have specs as to compare the 1999 V10
to the 2000 V10. My dealer says the engine HP has not
changed.

I have 2000 SD CC v10 and I am looking to replace the factory deck and I
noticed there is a special tool that is supposed to be used to get the deck
out. Does anybody know a way around this? Use something else? or whatever.

My '99 has a stock 4.6. I'm considering putting in one of the K&H air
filters. Has anyone really noticed any increase in mileage or horsepower?
It's only about $45 - but still not worth it if it doesn't make a
difference. Thanks.

Nope the way I understand, you need the DIN tool. I know that Crunchfield
supplies a tool when you buy a deck from them. It's possible you might be
able to order one from them, or from your local auto-sound shop

Just because MS-Window's holds 90% of the market doesn't mean it's
superior. Remember 90% of all animals are insects.

Go to any auto radio shop and say, hey dude will you pop my
radio loose for me? They may charge you up to 5 bucks?
You can then ride home with it just slightly unseated!

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - K&H Air Filter

The ~$150 kit makes some improvement (mainly the intake sound). The $45
filter makes no difference whatsoever. The only advantage is that an air
filter for an X costs $18-19, so it pays for itself pretty quickly.

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - Factory deck removal.

You can pop off the dash piece that covers the front of the radio and
get at the clips that hold it in the mounting flange. You'll still need
four small (3/32 or so) stiff metal rods or small screwdrivers with
which to release the pressure on the spring clips.

The easiest way is to get the tools. All they are is a U-shaped steel
rod with a circumferential notch on the ends. The notch engages the
spring clips and gives you something to pull against after you remove
the spring pressure.

Take a coat hanger and bend it into a U shape so the ends
fit into the 2 holes on each side, you will need 2 U's.
Push them in, this will force the clips to retract and you
pull the deck out. Use coat hanger wire that is the same
dia. as the hole.
