I had the rear leak, and the dealer had to have an indeendent glass company
come in and confirm the leak and to replace the glass & frame. The body
shop manager kept mentioning that Ford would not let them do the work but
had to go to an outside glass company. The rear sliding window was
replaced, but they busted some interior trim. The shop manages said he
would contact them and have them order the replacement.

Others on some mail list have mentioned that the replacement leaks worse
than the orginal. Haven't had a problem, but it has only been a week.

I guess finally it did happen to me, the leaky rear window. I called my
dealer today
to fix the problem and to my surprise he never heard of this problem.
Also, he said
that this is normal for a 3 year old truck, especially if you live in a bad
environment
(Ohio) then he start talking to me about how did it get cold, worm, rain,
snow, freeze,
..etc. He is trying to tell me that all trucks have this thing after 3-4
years. I
tried to explain to him that I've never heard of that and I use to own
trucks before,
but he won't listen.
I hung-up with him and jumped on the Internet to find everything I could
find about the
rear glass on F150. I couldn't find a TSB or anything about it. I've been
a member
for this lest for many years now and I know I heard people talking about
this in the
past, and they did get there glass changed. But I can't remember if they
used a TSB or
what really did they tell the service manager.
So now I'm stuck with a leaky rear window 'till I come-up with something.
Please help.

Hunter

If he has the "4x4 offroad" banner at the end of the pickup bed, that's a
pretty good indication. Skidplate under the fuel tank is the other one.

My F250 has a steering stabilizer, but it doesn't have the offroad package. It
does have the heavy duty suspension package, however.

Good point. My information is relative to the 99 SD trucks. They could/probably
have
changed the options mix for 99.5 or 2000.

I talked to him today, and he said if I can get him a TSP # that he will be happy to do
it.
I sent an E-mail to FORD, and I'll share with you the response. If I get any.....

It also comes with the heavy service front suspension option. I have a
stabilizer but don't have the ORP.


The steering stabalizer should come with the "off-road" package.
Did he get that?

Hello all,

This is off subject but who better to ask than the people who own an
f250sd psd just like mine. I have been towing 6x12 enclosed trailers
with no problems. I have towed bigger with different trucks but that is
not my point. I believe I found a very good deal on a 8x18 Haulmark
enclosed trailer GVWR 7000#. I was wonder about the overall performance
of my f250 since the trailer is considerably wider and taller than my
truck. Anybody have some real world experiences the wouldn't mind
passing along?



thanks
joe

Subject: Remote Transmission filter

Hello all,

I want to put a remote transmission filter on my truck. I cannot find any
information regarding the flow of transmission fluid through the
cooler/radiator.

Am I correct in assuming that the transmission cooler line that is on the
top part of the raditor is the hot fluid out of the transmission and the
lower radiator cooler line is the cold fluid return to the transmission?
So, the flow would be from the top connection to the lower connection (Hot
to Cold).

Thanks in advance.


BTW, anyone that is thinking of buying the power pulleys from ASP on the
online store for the F-150 4.6L or 5.4L, there is something you should
know. The crank pulley goes on fine but you may have to do some
customising for the water pump pulley. On my 2000 F-150 4x2 there is
another unused thread-in slug on the timing chain cover. This gets in the
way of the water pump pulley. I had to grind off about 3/16" to 1/4" of
material on this slug. Since this is cast aluminum it was very easy. It
does not destroy the treads of the slug so if it was every needed, it can
be used. I don't know what connects there. It looks like possibly an
Idler pulley can be mounted there. But no diagrams some one there with or
without A/C.

My experience is similar, but not identical to yours.

But, I have pulled a 7,500#, 8' x 20' Wells Cargo with our 1999 F350,
dually, Powerstroke, 4:10 and equalizer hitch. The pulling is fine, follows
well, holds the road, no sway. It is great on the road. A negative force is
the wind resistance from the square front of the trailer--I do not have a
cap on the pickup bed.

On two roundtrips from Chicago to Denver to Chicago, I got 9.4+ and 9.65
mpg traveling between 70 and 78 mph. The cargo weight has something to do
with mileage, but I suspect that it is not the primary factor--wind
resistance is likely the primary factor.

Though not very scientific, the boost reads about 10lbs at 75 mph, around 7
at 70 and around 5 lbs at 65 mph on a level road (in Nebraska) with little
wind to be concerned with.

Therefore, it is likely that mileage would improve if I went slower. Next
trip I might try a slower speed, and at 60+, and I am certain I would get
better mileage if the wind is the same as before. "All things being
equal--which is often not true."

Maybe this helps your thinking; maybe not..

Subject: Order Priority

Can someone refresh my memory about Ford's order priority numbers? I just
got the Dora for my truck order and it has a priority of 20. I thought that
10 was the highest priority. I ordered a car a few years ago and it was
priority 10. Where does 20 rank? Will this ever be built?

Thanks,
