I read somewhere that Ford has a small interest in Caterpillar.
They may also have a interest in Cummins.This could all change now that
unfortunatly Ford is out of the big truck business.

it's been out since at least 1974,and as far as I have been able to
determine production stopped in 85/86.

I don't know how long before 74 it was available,but all the mustang
II's were available with the 2.8 as an option.

This only complys with people who have the autolamp system......If you have
the autolamp system and you know your headlights turn themselves on at nite
and off when you get out of you truck you learn to forget about them and let
them do there job..But when it rains its usually not dark enough to turn them
on and you have to manually turn them on or you'll get a ticket (in most
states) so you turn them on and then when you get to where your going you
forget you turned them on and figure they'll go off like ususal and thats when
you find a dead battery.....Well i've brainstormed this simple fix that will
never leave you with a dead battery again and also helps with daytime
driving.....i took a old business card somone gave me that was useless and
just happened to be a dark red and i folded it in half and stuck it up under
the rear view mirror in front of the light sensor and i tricked the sensor
into thinking its dark and always keeping the headlights on so now you'll
never have to turn them on again or forget to turn them on in the rain and you
also have added saftey with day time running lights.........nice quick and
easy ..........ding
