Yes it does. The charter message left it out by accident
and has since been updated. The only way there'll be
talk about the Explorer is if the owners speak up. Many
of the Ranger/Bronco 2 folks have been on the lists for
a long time so they're more comfortable with bringing up
topics. The Explorer discussion will pick up. This list,
like our other lists, will take a couple of weeks before the
discussion really gets going.

I'm going to re-announce the list on the Explorer newsgroup
again this evening. So far there's been 1 Explorer topic.
Once 2 or 3 vocal Explorer owners start posting it will
snowball.

Subject: Removal of Crankshaft/Drivebelt pully on a 2.3l

How can I remove the crankshaft drivebelt pully without rotaiting the
crankshaft? # 1 cylinder is at TDC, and I don't want that to change. The
pully is mounted to the shaft with one 22mm bolt. When I try to remove it, it
rotates the crank. It's a fuel injected 88 model. Is there a special puller
I can get?

Thanks

Sam

Subject: 3rd Seat for explorer??

Does any one know if there is an aftermarket option for a third seat in a
'92 explorer. Even something like the old station wagons that faces
backwards. My neighbor had a recent edition to the family this christmas,
and space is getting tight!
Are there any legal issues w/ fabricating your own????

The pully should have two holes in a ring around the bolt. These are for
a puller. You might be able to rent one, I have rented specialty pullers
from AutoZone. I race this motor in a dirt stock car (Mustang) and they
are very easy to work on once you get past all the asscesories, well easy
for me anyway. Don't go prying on the pully unless you want to chance
breaking the aluminium front cover. And dont ever try to pull one by
pulling on the outside by the groves. Makes one look like a taco shell.
Are you just changing the timing belt? There is an aftermarket
adjustable cam gear if you want to be able to play with the cam timing,
advance for some more horsepower, retard for some more torque. Post any
more questions or just how it turned out.
