Not to worry, if they abuse their posting privileges they get locked out forever. What gets me is that I have to stay calm about it after they send me 10 email messages to my personal address yelling at me because they are still receiving mail. This is after I've sent them an email telling them where to find unsubscribe info! Too bad email software doesn't have "bonehead" filters.

To the 99% of you who don't do this stuff, thanks! Seeing the list work for all of us is really satisfying. I remember reading a FAQ that stated that all email lists go through stages - right now it's becoming a teenager and the "list mom" (me) is trying to figure out the best way to proceed. If I throw temper tantrums let me know.....

I rebuilt my 460 using a Crane 260 degree hydraulic camshaft.
Unfortunately I accidentally threw the card away so I don't quite remember the number. When I had the motor dynoed, it put out more than 50 hp more than a Dodge V10 at 80 mph yet pulled from 500 rpm all the way up to over 80.

The reason I chose the 260 degree duration is I use the truck to tow and I have 3.55 gears so I need some hefty bottom end. If you have a ratio in the 4.10 range you might want to consider the 268 degree camshaft.

Of course these durations are the advertised and not the 50 degree spec.

Just my .02

Please do NOT send list server commands (especially with incorrect syntax) to the email list address. This will NOT unsubscribe you. The web page asks all users to read the FAQ and charter **BEFORE** they subscribe. Links to the FAQ and charter are also provided. The FAQ, charter and the introduction email you received all tell you how to unsubscribe and tell you not to post such messages to the email list where 450+ people see it.

The only abuse of posting privileges that has gotten anyone locked out has been when repeated unsubscribe postings to the group. Occasionally someone will post with embedded web page HTML but that hasn't been a real problem (no one has lost posting privileges because of it). Some new software is in the works to help solve the unsubscribe problems, more on this later as things get put in place.

>on the bottom of the carb. A core would be ok. Stu

I may have one, brand spanking new in the shrink wrap box. A 2150/2100 Autolite carb. Let me check this weekend to see if it has the large power (I'll cut a whole in the box under the carb to check) valve. Its jetted correctly and all that needs to be done to it is adjust the idle mixture for your application.

I'll let it go cheap as it ain't doing me any good around here.
If it isn't the large valve carb someone else can buy it. I'll check to see how much it costs are the store and I'll give you a price, you should see a substantual discount.

I have a 1985 F-250 with the 6.9L International Harvester diesel engine.
I'm wondering if anybody can point me to a source for an aftermarket brake "boost" or improvement scheme? It isn't dangerous or anything, but I'd feel better with more stopping power when carrying heavy loads.

Sorry you can't get the Bronco II info. Don't worry though, as the list grows we'll gain more Bronco knowledge. Growth has slowed but we still gain 5+ users a day.

For a Ford car group point your browser to our homepage: http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.mindspring.com/~fordtrucks
and follow the "[ Other Ford email lists ]" link. On that page you'll find a link to the Fordnatics list homepage. This list covers all Ford cars. The knowledge there is good but most of the discussion centers around hi-performance V8s.

Turning should not be a problem but the bumps in the road or driving with a heavy load might not do the fenders any good.

I had a set of 31's on an 87 and they would just come up and rub the fenders and I think the wheel opening on the front of the 94's are smaller than on the 87's.

I checked with my local 4wd shop and you can buy carbon metallic brake pads for the front discs for around $60 a set. They are supposed to provide a noticeable improvement in braking relative to the original pads. Obviously there are other factors like the condition of your rubber flex lines. There are stainless braided flex lines available and I would think this would increase the pedal pressure. And lastly the master cylinder seals could be causing some mushyness in the pedal.

Just my .02.
