I have a '98 Explorer and it does the same thing. Haven't figured out a
good et except trying to bend the wiper a bit.
Also, if the rear washer does not work, check the line on the rear wiper
to insure it is not crimped. I thought the fluid was froxen in the line
but it was just kinked.

Subject: Sway Bars

I have a 89' ranger with the 2.9 engine. Currently I have found in cornering there is a great deal of body roll. I would like to get sway bars to correct this. Is the correct solution for this problem? If so can anyone recommend a particular make of sway bars, I have seen alot on the market.

Subject: Ignition Timing

How's everyone? Hope OK. I've got a question about timing the BRONCO
II('86 2.9EFI). Hope someone will help!

I read on a tech board that increasing the BTDC (Like from the factory 10
degrees to 14 degrees) increases the torque while retarding the advance
increases the top end. To me that seems backwards. What do you think?

I also read that the computer has a knock retard function. So adjusting
the timing probably makes no difference. What about this?

I'm getting 30x9.50's this week and want to bump up the torque where I
can.

My E-mail address is mgpkep juno.com -- or -- mike edi1.com
I'll also be watching the small trucks list.

Thanks a lot for your input. And if there are any Professional Mechanics
out there, please help. Thanks -- Mike

Yep, I had the same problem on an 86 super cab. I purchased the bolt on versions for both front and rear from JC Whitney about 5 years ago and they are still working great. I believe the OEM was Heliwig. Hope this helps.

Hey all...
Brand new Explorer owner here, 98 AWD V8, and so far very happy. I didn't see
any gloves with my jack, but I did get a gift around Xmas time.... 2 folding
chairs, monogrammed with Ford's logo (of course)..still they're pretty nice,
fold easily, and come with a travel bag. Anyone else getting this treatment,....
