Without taking sides on this issue at all I have to agree with the part of Tim's
message that I just posted. I'm sick and tired of reading people's rants and
such where they misspell words, or use them completely wrong!

One particular pet peeve is lose vs. loose. You did not loose to the car running
9 sec. quarter miles, you LOST, or lose to them! (well I do anyway :) If you
loose to them, then you must've had some major wheelspin!

I agree with Tim, the effectiveness of the post is greatly reduced when there
are major grammatical/spelling errors. Actually I can let one or two pass,
but once you start getting them more frequently I start laughing and wondering
exactly what makes you any better than the people you are complaining about
...

Sorry guys, had to get it off my chest.

Exactly.

Without getting, dragged into it all, this is not the
forum for such discussions.

Unless you can somehow tie it all in with the Dukes Of
Hazzard dodge charger or something.

Even then..... That's a Chrysler product. This is a
Ford list, not a senate debate.

'96 was an early OBD-II vehicle and they often trip the light for what we
might consider normal operation. Once the system sees a 'non-emission'
threatining condition it'll turn the light off. I'd suggest contacting the
dealer first about it as I *think* I recall a TSB concerning what you describe
where the computer gets reprogrammed to eliminate the light. What's happening
is the extra load from the boat requires more fuel to pull it, but the O2
keeps seeing all that fuel and says "Too much".. turns on the light.

What a mess...Good customer's vehicle that he got when buying out another
landscaping business. Still has the hydraulics for the clutch and doesn't
completely disengage the clutch no matter what we do. Seems to be a mish-mosh
of various parts and a nightmare to get right. (has a PTO also) Any pointers
for what might work properly with a '75 Lincoln 460 in a '87 F-350 with an
unknown 4 speed manual? (By all appearances not the the original trans.)

Not much to go on.. sorry for the paltry info and will post more if your
questions/replies dictate it.

Hi Tim,
There was a guy on the 80-96 list who had the same problem with a 86
150. He said he made an adjustable actuating rod to the master
cylinder. He indicated that it cleared it right up. I can dig up and
forward that post to you if you want. The funny thing is, I have a 86
250 that had a similar problem. The clutch would release, but the pedal
would be real close to the floor. Real close. My master cylinder had a
adjustable rod, but adjusting it just preloaded the throwout bearing
against the pressure plate. I didn't like that, so I bit the bullet
this past weekend, and put in a new clutch, pp, throw out bearing, and
pilot. The clutch now works fine. Now a question back at you. My
slave cylinder has enough residual pressure to keep the throw out
bearing just resting on the fingers of the pressure plate. It turns
with with the motor. Is this normal on a hydralic clutch?? The books I
have read say no free play on a hydralic clutch but is the bearing
supposed to turn all of the time??? I don't have much experience with
these hydralic things, as you can tell. If anybody knows for sure, feel
free to come on in.

OK, back to your question, I would guess the hydralics for the 87,
flywheel from a mid 70's 460 PU, clutch and pp depending on the trans
splines and flywheel size. For example, 11" 10 spline on a 15/16 shaft.
If you open it up, you might have better luck at a truck parts house
than your normal car parts place. They can probably match it up if you
carry it in and lay it on their counter. By the way, the PTO should not
affect clutch operation. From your posts this week, all I can say is to
have a good day tomorrow and a good weekend. Buck Shoff
