Try Fordnatics for general Ford performance
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.chucko.com/fordnatics/index.html) or the Classic Mustang list
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://antler.moose.to/~server/cm).

Sorry : I sent out some info to a couple of guys offline, so sorry if I
forgot anyone.

FYI: I have the 3:55 gears with 33" tires so actual ratio is around 3:00 or
so. Keep this in mine. My previous truck had 4:11 gears and ran a
competition cams 268 degree setup that worked well but had not top end at
all so like the gears in this truck much better.



here's the url

Here we grow again!

Ford Truck Enthusiasts has once again outgrown the capacity
of our server. We are in the process of ordering a fractional
T1 line which will allow us to host the site directly from
our home. The time to install is approximately 60+ days.
This will give us a ton of extra capacity and allow us to
offer many more features to our users because our web space
will increase to 10+ gigabytes. Currently, we use about
the same "constant" bandwidth of a 64k ISDN channel and a
peak bandwidth of 5 ISDN channels. Our new capacity will
be about 8 ISDN channels with peak allowances of 10 channels.

In the meantime, our server has gotten slower and we've taken
steps that should have an immediate improvement beginning
this evening. Ford Truck Enthusiasts is now operating on
two servers instead of one. The second server reduces the
load on our current system by about 40%. Expect to see
dramatic improvements in speed.

The second server gives us an additional 350 meg of drive
space. The list archives will be brought back on line in
the next week! Our costs have skyrocketed over the last
6 months. We'll be having a big holiday season sale and
a special promotion in order to pay for all this. As always,
the goal of this is to keep the system free for you and
the mailing lists free from ads. The sale will be conducted
on the web site, not the lists.

Those of you who've been with us a while (Hi Deacon!) know
that I believe in keeping everyone informed as to our
status. If you have any questions, feel free to contact
me personally at kpayne ford-trucks.com

Congrats Ken! I'm enjoying watching the site grow. As a former SySop of =

I know the pains and costs involved (and time!!!) You're doing well and =

the right attitude toward the users and the business. :-)

And from my perspective of knowing a fraction of what it must take to be =

place the way we like it. Buy a sticker, T-shirt, whatever. (I'm sure ju=

suffice it to say it's an expensive way to have lots of people call your

Please do; I enjoy it also. For those unfamiliar with me I haunt the sma=
