give me a real chance to look over some of my hoses and I will be replacing them
soon. But what would make it so spontaneously erupt like that?

Probably had the cap to "stick" and the preassure built up to a good bit more
than it is rated at. When it finally broke loose, it let off steam(probably
just hot water, but in cold weather it gave the impression of steam) until it
got back down to the specifications of the cap. I wouldn't worry too much about
it, but by the same token I would be watchful of it for a while.

I've never tried this, but I would think it would work. The chargers for
flashlight batteries(1.5v) and other such devices that are built to charge
small batteries. They come in all different voltages. I see no reason you
couldn't try some of these of various voltages. It wouldn't give you a variable
voltage but it would give you a variety of voltages. Check the output of the
different chargers with any little vom that reads DC voltage.

It is in the manifold behind the distributor ... so it was seeing the same
heat. I think it was just stuck because it hasn't done it since.

Hey Gang,
Just thought I'd forward this note from my buddy at Ford Factory. It is a
refreshing note to let all the technical guys in Ford know that the
performance spirit at Ford is not dead and that more projects and such are in
the works. I thought you all might be interested.

Thought you might be interested to know that the Ford performance scene is
alive and kicking. We have to fight the battle against the bean counters in
the company. This note is sent to all the members of the techteam in the
company. Anyway, how's the trans. going? I may be able to help research it in
a couple of weeks, we're still recovering from the blast damage, and as a
matter
of fact had another fire last night. Keep me posted fellow speed nut!

Subject: Update

A lot has happened since my last note! We have taken delivery of the
production
Cougar bodies for SCCA competition. The Teams are starting the long, mad
thrash
required to get them on the track. 2.5 Duratec engines are scheduled for dyno
testing in the near future. This will open an exciting new chapter in Ford's
Motorsports heritage.
Another Racing Cougar has come to the surface! And YOU CAN RACE ONE TODAY!!!
Check out "www.racerboy.com" for all the details and some great pictures.
This is a fiberglass Cougar body on a lightweight tube frame that just looks
like a BLAST to drive, easy to maintain, and preliminary reports are that it's
VERY fast! THIS is the kind of program we need to see a lot more of.
There is also a ZX2 program in the works which will give Ford fans everywhere
a
reason to cheer! Details cannot be released at this point. I will keep you all
posted when information becomes available. Look out Neon!
A common theme through a lot of what we are doing is the Zetec engine.
This engine is being raced and modified all over the world EXCEPT the US!!
Any of you who have contact with high performance Zetec engines in naturally
aspirated OR boosted form, I need to hear from YOU! What kinds of parts are
available? Where do we get them? How much do they cost? Who is racing them?
I know that the global reach of this group can answer these questions.

Several of the "show" cars from recent events are being seen around Dearborn
being evaluated. The Merc Marauder, a Supercharged and lowered Windstar (!),
and several other performance oriented vehicles. Let your Managers know that
you support Ford performance vehicles as a way of demonstrating the Company's
enthusiasm and technical expertise. Let them know that CAR GUYS are alive and
well at Ford Motor Company!! We ARE making a difference!

I just thought I'd let yall know what me and my brother are doin for his I-6.
Were doin a complete rebuild, and wanted more oomph. Who doesn't? The bottom
end is all stock. The head was milled .030 to help boost the compression.
We're adding a 4v intake, with a possible 600 Carter carb. Headers runnin to
dual exaust and a balance tube. We havent selected the cam yet, but I'm
leanin for something that brings up the bottom end, with still a lil left for
midrange. I-6's dont have much of a top end to worry about. Also the whole
rotating assembly is going to be balanced. We're shooting for 275-300 hp, and
500+ lb ft of torque. I'll fill you in when its done.
