Subject: Door Crack Update


Got a call yesterday from my local Ford service rep.

He wanted to tell me he's gotten the fix from Ford, actually 4 fixes
depending on the size of the crack, and he needs me to bring the truck by
to measure the cracks so he can order the appropriate parts.

I'm taking it in 1st thing Monday morning to find out what the "cure" is.
I'll try to get a description of the "Four Fixes" before I leave.  I've
hear one is to replace the door (with a new design) and one is to install
wedges in the door (if the crack has not initiated yet).  I'm interested
to see what the other two are.

Later,

Steve

ALL,


       If anybody is interested on April 14th a bunch of us will
be heading to the Silver Lake Michigan sand dunes.  This is the
3rd year in a row that we go.  We all own/lease 97+ F-150 4x4s but
we would welcome any Ford owner.  The dunes are excellent for
beginners as the sand is soft and we do not do crazy things with
our trucks.  We have to drive them home.  For me that is a 4 hour
trip.  For info on the Dunes check out
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.Oceana.net/Oceana/sanddunes.html
As the date nears I will post more info about it.

Regards

Jean Marc Chartier

Hey.... I have a 91 F150, but I don't wheel that,
yet... I just rebuilt the engine and trans (302/AOD)
But I do have a wrangler.  Will be looking forward to
seing you there.  Where are you coming in from?  What
engine do you have in your pickup?  I am a mechanic at
a Ford Dealership in Grand Haven, Mi.  (It's on the
way to S.Lake)  I'm just kinda curious what kinda luck
you had with your truck up in the dunes.   Thanks for
the reply?  :)  CYA

  What are the cracks, and where are they?  What
causes them?  I've not seen a 'notorious' problem with
these... I'm a mechanic at a Ford Dealer... the only
posisbility I can see is the crack coming from sombody
'adjusting' the door gap... please reply.. THX, YJTrendsetter

Greg,

  I live in Windsor, across from Detroit.  I usually leave at
6:00-6:30 Am and meet up with others along the way.    One of the
bunch lives in Holland and meets us in Muskegon.  I take I96 to
Muskegon then US31 North to the dunes.  I have a 4.6 SC with 4.6
and 5 speed.  I should be able to do Test hill backwards in 2wd
if the clutch holds. ;)    No broken parts on this truck in the
dunes at least.  I bent the frame twice on my 97. :(

Regards

Jean Marc Chartier
