Mike, you have the Pretty Park trojan horse! Go to www.norton.com or
another reputable site and get info and something to kill it with. Luckily,
Listar stripped the binary so no one else became infected.

In short, this virus, once run, sends itself to everyone in your address
book. For those that have extensive address books (me, with about 700
entries) this can cause problems in a hurry.

Subject: NP-205

got a np-205 off a "big" bronco.. that had a C-6.. cleaned it up.. looks
like the gears are 1.97 to one
however... ITS SHOT...
my transmission shop wants $800. + to replace the forks ,guides, shafts
and input gear..
The casing I have has 2 small chunks out of it but according to the
"shop" they have no problems at all with the chunks missing.
question #1 will the parts out of ANY C-6 be compatible.... as far as
gears/ forks
question #2 the forks are pressed on so I may have to depend on a shop
to do that..
but ha anyone done it themselves...
question #3 What about changing the low range gear set from a lower
set from something else..

I know there are a bunch of NP-205 transfer cases floating around as
they are/were popular in the Ford Trucks and the Big broncos.. as well
as Dodge and a pile of others..
It would be cheaper for me to find another NP-205 for the gears then to
order a new set as those transfer cases are a LOT stronger then the
dana-20 its replacing...
thoughts ??? ideas ???? phil

Forgive the cross-posting, but I thought that this would be of interest to both
lists. First of all, Ken, thanks for having everything configured nicely where
Listar trashed the binary file - you probably saved a few people some
headaches! And, for those that have the worm, here is the Norton Anti-Virus
information:

PrettyPark.Worm

Detected as:PrettyPark.Worm, W32.PrettyPark.C.Worm, W32.PrettyPark.D.Worm
Aliases:Trojan Horse, W32.PrettyPark, Trojan.PSW.CHV, CHV, W32/Pretty.worm.unp
Known Variants:W32.PrettyPark.C.Worm, W32.PrettyPark.D.Worm
Infection Length:37,376; 17,081 (C variant); 60928 (D variant)
Area of Infection:C:\Windows\System, Registry, email attachments
Likelihood:Common
Detected as of:June 1, 1999; February 2, 2000 (C variant); February 18, 2000 (D
variant)
Characteristics:Worm, PrettyPark.EXE, Files32.VXD
Norton AntiVirus users can protect themselves from this virus by downloading
the current virus definitions either through LiveUpdate or from the Download
Virus Definition Updates page.


Description
This worm program behaves similarly to Happy99 Worm. It was originally
spread by
email spamming from a French email address. The original report of this worm
was submitted through our exclusive Scan&Deliver system on May 28, 1999 from
France.
When the attached program file, PrettyPark.exe, is executed, it may display the
3D pipe screen saver. It also creates a file called files32.vxd in the
Windows\System directory and modifies the following registry entry value from
"%1" %* to files32.vxd "%1" %* without your knowledge:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\exefile\
shell\open\command
Once the worm program is executed, it tries to email itself automatically every
30 minutes (or 30 minutes after it is loaded) to email addresses registered in
your Internet address book.
It also tries to connect to an IRC server and join a specific IRC channel. The
worm sends information to IRC every 30 seconds to keep itself connected, and to
retrieve any commands from the IRC channel.
Via IRC, the author or distributor of the worm can obtain system information
including the computer name, product name, product identifier, product key,
registered owner, registered organization, system root path, version, version
number, ICQ identification numbers, ICQ nicknames, victim's email address, and
Dial Up Networking username and passwords. In addition, being connected to IRC
opens a security hole in which the client can potentially be used to receive
and execute files.
Repair Information
To remove the PrettyPark worm:
On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Run.
Type REGEDIT, then click OK.
Modify the following Registry value:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\exefile\ shell\open\command

and change

files32.vxd "%1" %*

to

"%1" %*

For clarity, these seven characters are the following: double quote, percent
sign, the numeral one, double quote, space, percent sign, and asterisk. Don't
forget the space.

Delete the PrettyPark.exe file.
Restart your computer.
Delete the \Windows\System\Files32.vxd file.
Safe Computing
Because of Worms and Trojan Horse programs, you must practice safe computing.
Be suspicious of executable file attachments (for example, .exe, .shs, or MS
Word, or MS Excel files), especially ones from newsgroups or unknown sources.
For continuous protection, always run Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect and use
LiveUpdate to make sure you have the latest virus definitions.

Subject: 460 Fans! Your help please


Well, now I am getting around to picking up the 460 F250. She's
carbeurated, and with a C6.

So, what is teh firing order and timing of this engine?

1983 F-250 3/4 Ton, 460, with a C6. Carbeurated too! I think it's
probably 2V, but could be a 4v.

Anything else that you could contribute to make this easier would be
appreciated!

Thanks in Advance,

Adam

My main workhorse is an '83 F-250, extended cab, with a 460 and C-6. I've
never had a truck that I've asked more of and never been disappointed.
Firing order for 460 is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8, timing should be specified on the
decal in the engine compartment (assuming stock engine setup).
Emission controls will be a big gray area on this truck. My truck has dual
caliper front brakes on front and is listed at 8600+ pounds gross weight.
In Texas, where it and I are from, what that means that it is exempt from
emission controls, (no cats, no air pump or charcoal cannisters, only a pcv
valve is required). Look at your door decal and find out exactly what your
truck was originally set-up for then check and see what your state
requires. Get several opinions, not just one, as I said, this size truck
straddles the dividing lines on required emissions equipment.
E-mail me anytime, on-list or direct, if you have any other questions.

Hi all,
A few weeks ago the subject came up about motor mounts that would help swap
in a 460 into a 60 ish Ford truck. I just received the PAW big catalog and
in it found motor mounts and tranny mounts for swaps. The catalog listed a
mount up to 64 and one for 65 and up. They also had cross members. If any
one is interested I can get the part numbers from my catalog. The mounts for
the 65 and up was 113.00(US) something in that ball park.

Is your truck a shortbed or a long bed ? you'll have to get a stepside that
matches and I think they stopped making 8' stepsides sometime in the middle
70's...

Sorry. I never heard of them. I am interested now too, if someone can
find info on them. Maybe they are out of business, or out as a few other
places I do business with....at the races!
