This is a response to a request for low gears in the transfer case for =

Dear Michael -

At this time, there is not enough of a call for this adaptation, and =
Advanced Adapters has no plans to start R & D. I'm told that utilizing =
the current Atlas would prove very expensive & time consuming.
It couldn't hurt to keep voicing your opinion, and getting your friends =
to do the same. Maybe someday there will be a majority, and enough =
cause for them to get something together for you.

If you're talking about the seatbelt warning, it won't beep if you do up
your seatbelt BEFORE you turn the ignition key on.

Subject: FTE Small - Fellow Ford fan has passed on.

Just got some news that stunned me. Jim Osborn, of Jim Osborn
Reproductions, passed away Wednesday. Jim Osborn, in addition
to producing some of the finest reproduction decals, tags,
manuals and books for automotive enthusiasts, was also one
heck of a nice guy.

A couple of months ago, after having the pleasure of seeing
Jim's work first hand in his small plant, Jim offered Ford
Truck Enthusiasts a deal to help us continue to help our
fellow Ford truck fans. A discount on his products sold
through us. Jim didn't have to extend this offer, but he had
a genuine "I want to help out attitude." I know one of his
employees personally and can say that his workers truly
liked working for/with him. He was just an all around nice

For those who don't know, Jim founded the Mustang Club of
America and his lifelong dream was to start a Mustang museum.
His wife is planning on starting a fund to keep his dream

I'd like to take this opportunity to ask the members of these
lists to show that we're more than just about trucks. I've
made many friends here and I know from personal experience
that we have a good group here. Please, if you can spare a
few moments of your evening tonight or a few minutes tomorrow,
pick up a card and send it to:

Jim Osborn Reproductions
101 Ridgecrest Drive
Lawrenceville, GA 30045

If you want to, send a few bucks with a note stating it's
for the Mustang museum. Also, let them know its from an FTE
member, I think this, in a small way, will let them know
that we appreciated him.

Subject: FTE Small - Looking for help from Ford Parts Experts

I'm working on a Bronco II 2.9L project and interested in finding a Mass Air
Flow Meter Set-up for the 2.9L engine to replace the current speed density
set-up. I understand that in some 1990 2.9L engines (Ranger or Bronco II)
there was a California smog set-up option which had this set-up. I was
hoping one of the parts experts out there had some time to research this and
find out the Ford Part numbers. This info would be very helpful as this
conversion could allow some great engine building options on the 2.9L.
Thanks for any help, Bob Marrs.

Check your tail pipe to see if you have excessive water dripping out of
there when you first start up. If you do, take a whif to see if it smells
llike coolant. If you don't have water coming out of the tail pipe, check
your spark plugs one at a time to see if they are
fouled and have water on them. If they do then your coolant is getting
into the cylinder with the bad plug(s). That would mean you need a new head
gasket. To make sure take a compression test and check against specs.
