Subject: FTE Perf - ADMIN: Web site updates

1. 13 trucks added to pictorial section.
2. Several links sections updated.
3. Speaker installation for 1999 F150s article added to tech
article section.
4. RSAC tags updated in the BBS, classifieds and chat sections.
If you have children and content control in your web browser,
this will allow them to visit any portion of the site except
for chat which has a tag for mild slang/adult language.
I've seen enough of this in the chat that I felt it was best
to re-rate it.
5. Some portions of the BBS are faster (and some are still just
as slow and we're still working on it).
6. Server can now handle up to 20 simultanious users (chat can
handle even more, about 500). Browsing the site should be
faster during peak times. We'll need a full T1 connection
within 6 months. We've had 19% compounded monthly growth
since we started and we're projecting about 500,000 monthly
visitors within 7 months.

Has anybody found a not so secret way to cut these things? I wrap with
masking tape and use a 32 tooth hacksaw blade but still end up using wire
cutters to trim stray strands. The people at the local speed shop use a
floor mounted shear and that leaves even more of a mess. And we all know
what happens if it starts to unravel before we get the fitting head on.

Just wondering if everyone in the list received my reply to the claims
that my truck was way overpriced/faulty. I sent the email reply, but
never got any response...

i didn't have any problems when i did my fuel system on my puller. worked
with both 10 and 6 lines no problem doing it the way you described. just
used whatever hacksaw blade i had in the saw - don't remember the tooth
count. i did find it worked better with several layers of tape for me
though. i was using summit brand line, so it was not a top quality brand
either. i did get poked several times, but they never unraveled or caused
a problem.

i also assembled them with no special lubricant, using wd-40 for the male
part only. so far so good. the -10 lines were more difficult to tighten i
did notice. so, sorry, i don't know of another method.

Subject: FTE Perf - Identify this

Gang,
Here we go again. I have been having trouble identifying the trans. I have in
my truck. The transmission code on the door sticker is "U". The only number
that I have been able to find or see on my trans. is "RF-F4ZP-7006-AA". That
number is located on the drivers side of the tranny just behind the shift
linkage. I also have the stalk mounted OD off switch.
The VIN # is 1FTEX15N1RKA19590 if that helps. I have tried to go up to the
local for dealer and have them run the OASIS on it, but of course, everytime I
go up there the system is supposedly down. You can either post the answer or
contact me off list.
Thanks,

George, I prefer to use electrical tape, you can stretch it really tight
and with a fine tooth hack saw blade you can get a nice cut.
The only option is a chop saw with a metal cutting blade in it........
