I have a '56 radio out in the back garage, it hasn't been used since
1973. I'm not sure if it works at this point. Maybe the light too, let
me check this weekend.

Glenn,
The Isuzu Tropper tank is a 21.9 Gallon tank. A very respectable size. Also I
think some of the 85, and I am sure the 86 came with a pump installed for
fuel injection engines. The tank I installed in my truck did not have the
pump, which was just as well with me as I have a carburated engine.

I have been unable to enter the chat room for the last few weeks. I am unable to login and get a error message. Has anyone else had this problem? Or is it just me and my computer.

Its been down since the 1st (only 12 days, not "the last few weeks")
pending getting higher priority items working such as:

1. banner ads for our paying advertisers
2. Making sure the web store was switched over securely
3. getting all our domain names transferred
4. the message boards
5. the mailing lists
6. AFTE email accounts
7. AFTE ftp accounts
8. non-profit club email accounts
9. non-profit club ftp accounts
10. getting the web server logs to zip, email and reset correctly every hour
(they get so big that they can fill up their directory in half a day)
11. getting the web site search back up
12. getting the pictorial updated (its 3 months behind)
13. getting cron scripts back up
14. Getting the Jave VM installed (needed for chat)
15. Re-installing the chat

As you can see, it's the lowest priority. It just doesn't
get enough participation to rank anywhere else.

Alan,

Does your family come from Sweden from the beginning?
I live in the middle southern part of Sweden, near Orebro.

I have not lived in Milwaukee WI for years but there were many
such places. Look on Yahoo. One was called General Split.

I know that a couple are still there, on Canal Street.

Can everyone discipline themselves to remove the unsubscribe
information footer from the bottom of messages when replying?
It's getting old seeing 4 of them on a multiple message reply.
If the list can't self-police themselves with this, I'll have
to set up a filter to bounce such posts.

Thanks,

The Ford Truck Enthusiasts web search is working again.

Subject: Re: Y-Block redline

Recently I completed restoring my '56 F350 for daily driver use. I rebuilt
the 292, added a 4-bbl carb with headers and dual exhaust, rewired,
reupholstered and repainted everything in the cab interior and the engine bay.
You might say Bertha has inner beauty, since I haven't done squat to the
bodywork or exterior paint. Anyway, I thought since I'd be breaking in a
rebuilt engine I'd install a a tach to keep tabs on my engine RPM. It works
great, along with the rest of the truck, only I don't know what my redline
should be, or what RPM I should be limiting myself to during the break-in.
Anybody out there have any wisdom to share on this subject?

Subject: ADMIN: Chat is back up

It's been a productive day so far. The Ford Truck
Enthusiasts web chat is back up. The Java VM we're
running is a much newer version than the one on our
previous server. It should be much more stable.
However, as a precautionary measure, it will restart
every hour until I'm comfortable with its operation.
