I didn't mean you'd have to change anything in the sense that the stock
parts
won't work, just that the linkages might not work quite like you would
expect
(ie Park may be Reverse or something equally surprising the first time
you start
it) because as you lift the body the linkages will pivot (hopefully)
and their
travel might move just enough to cause some minor adjustments to be
needed ...
can't guarantee this will happen, but just something to be aware of in
the back
of your mind.



Another issue I just discovered is that the bushings are actually
several inches thick, so I might have some serious readjusting to do
afterwards!
Thanks for the input.

JC

Ken,
I see no problems with it. If it allows you to keep the site and our lists
running as good as they have been all along. And besides, you may put
something up there that we will like!!!
On a personal note, I ran my 2nd best time ever at the Richmond, VA event for
Fun Ford this past weekend. I ran a 14.45 94 mph. I should be up to 2nd in
the points standings after this weekend.

The ads are fine. They aren't in the way or distracting.

Ken,

I don't like them, but certainly understand why they are there, and can
deal with the ads just fine.

A few carriage returns before the ad would be nice though. It would allow
for easier reading, and seperation of the add from members' signitures at
the end of their emails. If this cannot be done, that is OK with me too.

Keep up the excellant lists and website. There aren't many sites on the
WWW that are of this good quality. Thanks again.

Kevin

For anyone on this list following my Truck Pulling adventures....

Harford, Pa. June 24:
Ran the 5,800, and 6,200 lb classes. The competition was very tough at the
top 8 or so positions. I pulled my '79 F350 into 5th place in both
classes. This was a horsepower track; nice and sticky. I was down on
power compared to all that beat me for sure, and I know I beat a few that
have bigger (like 600+ cube) motors that make more power than me too.

Watching the videos, I can see that I need to do some work to the frame,
steering, and the engine still needs some tuning.

For a picture from the Kempton pull, the first pull of the year:
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://home.epix.net/~kevkem/puller4.jpg

I had placed 6th at that pull, running on only 7 cylinders, and the timing
was retarded a bit due to a loose destributer clamp.

A couple of carriage returns will be added next time.
This run of ads stops tonight. Don't know when the
next run will be.

I had to implement quoting limits on two of the other lists last
month because of this. I want to avoid enforcing limits via
the server as it can get annoying when your post is over the limit
by one line!

Plug wire came off. Not sure how. I feel I would have got 3rd place that
time if I had all 8 firing. In the next class, the 6200 lb class, I broke
the transfer case linkage before hooking to the sled. I was unable to get
it into 4wd, and couldn't run.

Congratulations. Looking at the pic the turnout there was pretty good too ...
good luck on future runs !
