Is there a MAF sensor kit available for the 2.9L V6 in my 88 BII? If
so, how much would one cost?
Thanks!

JC

I thought I posted some ... maybe not.

Anyway on those trucks a big bottleneck is the exhaust system ... the pipe
is very small, and the muffler/cat are really good at stopping flow ... that
would be the first thing I would do (Shorties, bigger Y pipe, hi-flo cat,
cat-back system). The next would probably be some intake mods, a different
MAF, possibly upper intake side of things ... a K&N for sure, may even
change the box a little bit to allow more air to come in directly rather
than through that mess of piping (maybe in the fender ?)

Without a cam or head change, a chip will do you little good. Oh yeah, and
bump the timing too, its around 10 normally, bump that on up to 14 I think
is what they say ...

A hotter coil and ignition system may be a good investment too (plug wires,
check the plugs, etc.)


The third thing to remember is that this is a lot of truck and not a lot of
motor, it will do well, but probably not be a barn burner or anything ...

Subject: FTE Perf - M block flat top pistons...

aka the Holy Grail for us poor deluded M block faithfuls. If you ain't
interested in M blocks then hit the delete button now and move on to the
next post.

Yes there is a manufacturer that makes flat top 400 series pistons. They are
Ohio Piston & Pin, 7915 E. 30th St., Indianapolis (?) IN 46219.
(800) 428-4591. I spoke with a very nice gentleman by the name of Mark who
was able to give me the names of some local distributors. The part # is
1282P and they are available in std, .020, .030, .040 and .060. (An M block
bored .060? yikes!) The comp height is 1.637 so they are destroked .010 and
they are cast flat tops with 2 valve reliefs. I told Mark he'd better get
ready to up the production on them 'cause they were going to have some
orders heading their way. These pistons are also marketed under the Nylen
brand with the same part #. Jobber net on these bad boys is $16.71 a piece
so hopefully we should be able to get them for $150-$165 a set.

Yeehaw I am one happy camper. Much thanks to Dale Frenz for the lead on
these guys.

Subject: FTE Perf - Re: oil pan removal

Hi folks since you guys are an all around knowledgeable bunch I have a
perplexing question to ask you. Lately I've been playing with our
resident lawn ornament and I got it running(77 f-250 custom,351m,c6).
What I think I need to do is remove the oil pan and weld in a nut as
the old one was stripped and the self-tapping plug the parts store gave
me also wont seal. At this point i have all the oil pan bolts off and
4 bolts from the engine mounts (2 on each side). What i thought i
could do is remove the engine mount bolts and use a floor jack on the
bell housing to get enough clearance to slide the pan out the front.
The problem so far is that every time i raise any part of the motor the
whole truck goes with it. Did i miss a motor mount bolt? Is the
transmission hitting the floor boards? Will Leonard tell Kate hes
madly in love with her?oops wrong list Anyway I'd appreciate anything
you guys could tell me about getting this thing off would help.thanks
again

Well you'll have to look to see for sure, but I would bet that 2 things are
happening

a) by lifting the motor with the jack you're taking weight off of the
springs, so they extend themselves
and
b) you're so far back on the motor that you're lifting on the transmission
jack too ...


I think someone posted earlier on the 61-79 list that you could actually
jack up the chassis and the suspension would droop enough for this to happen
... yo may have to turn the crank a few degrees to get the counterweights
lined up right as you pull it out though ...

> Will Leonard tell Kate hes

Not if he knows what's good for him, but probably will anyway.
