Would anybody be interested in a Stock 428 PI intake manifold? I just saw
one this morning for sale for $335.00. If anyone is interested you can
E-Mail me at mmorto woodward.com. I did'nt know if this is a good price or
not.

Subject: FTE Perf - Warranty Shaft: Letter

Wayne,
I have used Speedy Transmission in Alpharetta, GA and always have
been happy. I will even say I can send my wife and she has been taken good
care of. I do have a question, does you warranty papers say what type of
parts can be used. NEW or USED. If used can you get the money for the used
one to put into the rebuilt you had. Remember they are at this to make
money and the know how to write these contact. Good luck,

Subject: FTE Perf - ADMIN: Daily digests

Please do not email me asking why you aren't getting a
digest every day! I'm sick of the dozen queries each
day. Take a small moment to look at the digest numbers
and you'll see that the digests are consecutive. No
digests are lost and it only takes a small moment of
your time to verify this.

When list traffic slows down, the digests don't meet
the minimum size for transmission on a daily basis.

From: "Giddens, Scott"
Subject: RE: FTE Perf - Warranty Shaft: Letter

Typically these warranties state that they only have to restore your vehicle
to the state it was in before the failure. What that means is they can
replace a used part with another used part if they choose to do so. Since
the entire transmission went out they can get away with replacing it with a
used one.

Suddenly that 1500 buck warranty doesn't look so good when you read the fine
print or actually see how it works does it? Like gambling, very few people
win, but most people lose. It is calculated that way so they will make
money.

The manufacturers extended warranty is for customer satisfaction, marketing
or sales. It is a little better investment.

Subject: FTE Perf - ADMIN: Virus checking

While the list server will reject emails with a virus (it
rejects all attachments), I still get them in my personal
emailbox. In the position I'm in as admin of the lists,
I get lots of email sent to me personally (about 50 each
day). As such, I've been getting exposed on a daily basis
to the Happy99 virus EXE attached to emails. I run a virus
checker and have since McAfee was a nobody shareware company
in the DOS days. IMHO, using a virus checker is a
fundamental pre-requisite for using a computer and they
don't cost much.

Anyone posting an email to me or the lists with the Happy99
virus attached will be blocked from sending email to our
server in order to prevent possible infection. If you don't
know if you have it, don't post or send me email - you will
be cut off without warning! In other words, use a virus
checker.

PS- You won't get a virus from me or the list server. We
update our virus definition files on a monthly basis.

TIP OF THE WEEK I - Happy99.exe worm - (New)
- -----------------
Our e-mail support staff answers hundreds of e-mails a day. In the
past week, at least five customers have inadvertently sent us this
Happy99.exe worm. We figure that about 2 percent of the
mail we get is now carrying the Happy99.exe worm and we'd like to get
that figure back to zero percent.

If you have recently run a program that displays fireworks in a small
window that says "Happy New Year 1999", most likely your computer has
this worm.

First, let's get rid of that program and then we'll tell you more about
it.

NOTE: As far as we know, this worm ONLY affects Windows 95/98/NT users.
Windows 3.1, Macintosh and other operating systems are apparently not
affected.

Ken

Here is a copy of an alert my server sent me about the Happy99.exe
virus. Please feel free to distribute among the lists so everyone who
has Happy99.exe on their system can safely remove it.

INSTRUCTIONS
- ------------
1. Print out these instructions.
2. Click Start | Shut Down | "Restart Computer in MS-DOS mode"
3. At the DOS prompt, type the commands below that are in CAPS exactly,
and press enter at the end of each line:
4. CD \WINDOWS\SYSTEM
5. DEL SKA.EXE (Note: If you get a File Not Found error, either you
are not infected or this file is located somewhere else on your
computer.)
6. DEL SKA.DLL
7. COPY WSOCK32.SKA WSOCK32.DLL
8. Answer "Yes" if it asks if you want to overwrite WSOCK32.DLL.
Explanation: WSOCK32.SKA is a backup of the original WSOCK32.DLL
made by the virus. You are replacing the modified DLL with the
original.
9. Return to Windows by typing EXIT

If upon rebooting, Windows displays an error message that it cannot
find SKA.exe, continue with the steps below. Note: Using the Registry
Editor incorrectly can lead to serious problems in Microsoft Windows
and Windows applications. Erols/RCN Internet assumes no responsibility
for mistakes or errors that result of incorrectly using the Registry
Editor.

1. Click Start | Run, then type regedit and click OK.
2. Click at the + to the left of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
3. Click at the + to the left of Software
4. Click at the + to the left of Microsoft
5. Click at the + to the left of Windows
6. Click at the + to the left of CurrentVersion.
7. Look under the following folders: Run, RunOnce, RunOnceEx,
RunServices, RunServicesOnce. Check for SKA.EXE and select it if it
is there. Hit the Delete key.
8. Close Regedit.

There is a file that keeps track of anyone you may have inadvertently
sent that file to. It is called: LISTE.SKA and you can find it under
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LISTE.SKA

From: George Miller
Subject: FTE Perf - Oil Pressure

I have a 6 quart Econoline oil pan on my 460. With remote filter, cooler
and lines, it takes a little over 7.5 quarts to bring the level (cold)
up to full on the dipstick.

When I fill it to the full mark and run at about 3-4,000rpm for extended
periods, the oil pressure will eventually drop about 8psi. If I leave it
a quart lower than the full mark, pressure during extended runs drops
only about 4psi. I understand that's about normal for dino oil.

What's causing the additional drop in pressure with the extra quart? I
use a high volume pump and Rhodes Lifters. When I check it hot, there
are no bubbles in the oil or any sign of churning by the crank.

TIA,

George Miller
