seals,hope yours is the same!

it is a pain sometimes,especially when you think it's one way
and it turns out it's just the OPPOSITE!!

I have an '87 bronco II, the one that has the ford symbol in the lower
right corner, and i was wondering if there is any way to switch the
grille with that of an 89+ ranger that has the ford symbol in the middle
of it. thanks

I have a power steering leak on my
91 Explorer that I can't seem to locate.
I have done the usual drill of turning the
wheels lock to lock while looking for
squirting fluid with no luck.

Subject: FTE Small - ADMIN: Pigeon Forge show info - last one before I go

Wednesday I leave for the Pigeon Forge F100 Supernationals.

Regardless of whether we get the promised booth we have the following
two events scheduled:

Saturday, 10am until ??? - Get together followed by lunch
- --------------------------------------------------------
In front of the Convention Center, under the canopy. You can't miss
it, the show is next to it and there's a bazillion trucks on front lawn
in front of it. The meeting will be informal and I plan to be there from
9:50 until we decide to head out. Bring a lunch and drinks, we'll find a
place where we can go as a group to eat. Per Garry Bowling's suggestion,
I'm going to briefly address the group (I hate speaking in public!).


Sunday, 8 am until ??? - Sunday breakfast
- ----------------------------------------
Breakfast really won't get underway until 8:30 but there will be people
there at 8am. Bring donuts, bagels, McDonalds or whatever, enough for
you and may a couple extra to put on the table for the group. This
will be at a pavillion at Patriots Park. We'll have directions at the
Saturday get together and at our booth. Sorry that this is so early
but many people are heading out early to get home at a reasonable hour.

To get a nametag/badge to wear to identify yourself, go to:

http://www.ford-trucks.com/badge.gif

and simply print it out.

When you register for the show, please list Ford Truck Enthusiasts
as the group/club you're with. We want Pat Ford, the promoter,
to know that we support his event so we can make our booth a
yearly thing.

If you have any questions concerning the show, email me privately at
kpayne mindspring.com before 3:00pm Wednesday.

Lastly, any email sent to my webmaster ford-trucks.com will receive
an autoresponder message. I'll be unavailble until the show is over
on the 16th.

Later,

Well, I'm not sure how much help this will be, but my mother's van
had a mysterious PS leak, we finally tracked it down- the resevoir
(it's late, I can't spell) had a small hole worn through it
(looked like it was rubbing on something). There wasn't much of
an obvious sign (no squirting liquids or anything). You might want
to take a look at this.

I had a p/s fluid leak in my '91 Explorer a couple of years back. Too
bad I wasn't the mechanic I am now. Took it to the dealership for
fixin' and it ran a couple of hundred. Best of luck finding it. I have
a Haynes manual if you need any info.

Subject: FTE Small - 97 Ranger--misses shifts

I wonder if any of you have had this problem, or have any idea what's
going on here. Two Ford dealers have been unable to duplicate it, so
it remains unsolved.

I've got a 97 Ranger, 3.0, 4-speed auto, 4x2. It will occasionally miss
a shift (down, usually). When this happens, the engine revs and the
trans seems to be in neutral. Letting up on the gas will generally make
it slip into gear. I've tried locking out 4th, and still have
the problem, so I figure it's the 3-2 shift. This doesn't happen all
the
time, maybe 2 times a week. I don't push it hard. Bought the truck
new,
had the problem since week 1.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
