Dave, there is also a 3618 that produces 7101 horespower. It has 35,518
lb-ft at max horsepower. It is 20 ft long, 11 ft tall, and 7 ft wide at
the widest point, which is the sides of BOTH turbochargers. It weighs
in at 77,160 lbs dry, w/equipment. Water and oil add another 5000 lbs,
not counting the sea water needed.

So suffice to say your Bronco II could not even go get an oil change for
the mighty 3618.

Subject: FTE Perf - F100 questions

I have a few questions I hope some one can answer for me. First what is the
differences between the f100 the custom and the ranger? Also the king pins
in my truck are sticking, the truck darts on the hiway and gets realy bad
the faster I go . I tried to get grease to them , and put new grease
nipples on them but they will not take any grease? Is there some way I can
free them up? If not how big of a job is it to change the king
pins?fsaur sprint.ca

A) 3-4 hours and all goes right.

B) All weekend and no progress; give up and have it done by a shop.

C) Shop charges for 'time spent' and it's between 3 & 8 Hours +
alignment

It's sometimes fairly straight forward but usually it's a real PITA.

PS a call to some of the 'older' alignment shops in your area might
reveal a nice price for the job compared to other garages; just be sure
it's a FIRM estimate.

Just curious.. how much oil?

Sure it could.. just take a few trips! :-) I'm now wondering if my
mighty (Ha!) 2.8 would even crank that beast over. (And what *do* they
use for a starter?)
