Subject: PSD Aluminum DRW for Joe Markoff
Date: Sun, 19 Mar 2000 06:38:15 -0600

Joe,
You might want to check with some tire shops and your Ford dealer on
replacing the rear DRW steel wheels with aluminum. I was going to go this
route as well and after some checking around was told Ford uses steel
wheels on the inside for spacing requirements and because aluminum next to
aluminum will grind away. Didn't make sense to me either, but everybody
said not to do it. By the way as far as rotation , i just run'em unless
they get cupped or something from mis-alignment. By the time you dis-mount
re-mount balance etc at $60.00 to $80.00 dollars per rotation you can but a
set of tires in 8 or 9 rotations. At 10,000 miles between rotations you
would have 80,000 or 90,000 miles on the tires which would be worn out
anyway. Mark Craig

From: "Steve and Caryl Baron" rcn.com>

For accurate curb weight, I've done two things in the past. One was to pull
into one of those weight stations on the highway, when the line of semi
trucks was non-existant and the station was open - boy, did those guys
respond strangely,

and some years later, I stopped by a local moving company that also had a
scale for their trucks.

Never found very accurate information in the literature.

I've decided to just rotate Left/Right due to wheel mismatches.
In addition to the inner rears being steel, they only polished the outside
face on the aluminum - so if I swap front/back the wrong side is out.
I know this is not the recommended practice, but Ford seems to be pushing
us to it. Hopefully keeping it in alignment will keep the wear to a
minimum.

I too have been looking for wheels so I could put snowtires on another set.
Found steel at about $60/ea (internet search), but didn't find any
aftermarket DRW aluminum yet.
The bolt pattern is different from the old trucks - too bad, I had access
to 12 for free and had to turn it down (someone else took them).

In about two weeks I will have the four factory aluminum wheels, three steel
wheels( one which has a 235/85/16 General Grabber TR that has never been
used.) and six 255/85/16 Firestone AT's with 1400 miles on them. Here are
some pictures.

Subject: ADMIN: WOW!

I just ran the Ford Truck Enthusiasts server logs for the first
time in several months. WOW!

A historical perspective: it took us slightly over 2 years
to reach 1 million visitors.

As of March, 2000, FTE is now receiving over 300,000 visitors
per month!

Expect **more** free services in the near future. We've added
the archive search, updated message board software (if you haven't
been by the message boards on the web site lately, you're missing
a large and rapidly growing community) and free web based mail so
far in March. We've got a few more items upcoming in the next
two weeks.

Thank you to everyone for making us a success!

Subject: Wiring/Trailer towing package

Hi, I'm Ken.
I have a 97 Ford F150 super cab, with the factory installed trailer
towing package, and am having trouble making it work.
I bought the factory 7 terminal (6 terminals in a circle and one
terminal in the center) pigtail taking it from the large female
receptical to a standard four plug trailer plug (flat plug). I get only
running lights on the trailer. I have completely checked out the
trailer and all lights function normally when powered with 12 volts (ie
running, stop, and left and right signals). Next I unpluged the pigtail
from the truck receptical. I tested for voltage on each terminal. With
lights on, I got voltage at the running light terminal and the +
terminal. I then powered on the switch and turned on the the left and
right turn signals and tested the left and right turn signal/brake
terminal and did not register any signal. I then went to the fuse box
under the hood and checked and replaced the 40 amp fuse in position 16.
The fuse was OK, but I still switched it with another 40 amp fuse from
position 23. Still no power to the stop/turn terminals. I pierced the
yellow and green wires just forward of the bumper receptical and check
for signal just in case the receptical could have been damaged, still no
signal. I was told by someone that maybe the harness wasn't connected
under the dash, somewhere by the heater outlet and glove box. I
inspected under there, not knowing what to look for, but did not see
anything unplugged or out of order.
I wonder if there is a relay somewhere in the system that might be bad?
I don't have a wiring schematic so I don't know where to look next.
Could anyone help? I'm leaving Thursday on a trip and could sure use
some. Thanks, Ken
