Subject: FTE Small - cargo mat for 92 explorer

Well, I am now the proud owner of a 92 explorer, this thing is loaded
and in mint condition, and I would like to keep it that way. Even
though my husband says he'll never load his tools in it, I'm just not
buying it. I am looking for some sort of protection for the rear cargo
area. Has anyone installed something like this? If so, where did you
get it and what was the price? Thanks, Mary McMahon

Hi Folks,

Well, many thank to several people who have helped unravel the SOHC 4.0 with
5 speed puzzle. Its available in the 2 door Explorer. And, if anyone hears
about a wrecked one, I would like to by it for transplant into my '86 Bronco
2. In the meantime, I am working on a hot rod version of a 2.9L.... one
which might get about the same HP. Some real interesting developments
occuring. More on this shortly.

Happy Holidays,
Bob Marrs

Dear Bob

I seem to remember reading that the number you want is on a sticker
inside the rear of the back of the rear tail lights, if you see what
I mean. You get at it thru the jack access door I think. I may be
wrong, because I read it 6 months ago, but its just possible its OK.
Try it and let us know.

I have a '97 XLT/Eddie Bauer export special as I live in Yorkshire
England. I love the Explorer, and even my wife likes it, tho' she
says England is too small to park it! I can park it on a sixpence
(dime?) because of the very accurate steering.

Good Luck and Happy 1999 to you and everyone at FTE-small trucks

Subject: FTE Small - '97 Explorer XLT

I have just acquired a used '97 Explorer XLT. It has the keypad beside
the
door handle. Is there any way to get the combination? The dealer doesn't
seem to know what it is. They acquired it thru an auction.
Also, are there any quirks I should look out for on this model?
It runs and drives great with 43k miles on it.
Thanks,

Once again, Ford Truck Enthusiasts has won a Carlounge award!
This is the third quarterly award we've won from them. We
won the #2 automotive site, behind (yuck) the official
Chevy site. Not bad that little ol' FTE placed right behind
big Chevrolet!

I want to thank everyone who nominated us!

That combo is available, but the 2-doors are also available with the
SOHC 4.0, and the five-speed auto. The only combo not available on the
2-door is the V8. It is amazing to me, but you can option a 2 Door out
to over $31,000
(don't know how much more, but that was what one I looked at this
weekend listed for)

From: Ken Payne
Subject: FTE Small - ADMIN: List policy

Several things need to be addressed:

1. Lately there have been many posts in which people
have taken it upon themselves to be list vigilantes.
Complaints and comments about the posting practices
of others should be sent to the list admin
(herbie ford-trucks.com for small chassis, 97up
and performance lists and kpayne ford-trucks.com for
all others). Let the admins handle the policing of
policy, especially if you aren't sure what our
policy is. Such complaints cause just as much list
noise (if not more) than the issue being complained
about.

2. Read the FAQ before posting for the first time.
The subscription introduction email asks that new
members read the FAQ and gives the web address for
the FAQ. One of the issues addressed is off-topic
posts.

3. For the record: we don't require you to remove
quoted text in replies. Standard practice on most
mailing lists is to include a quote. Remember that
just because you may receive the digest version of
the list, others may not and do not have the same
continuity of topics. Quoting is very helpful to
non-digest members. However, please leave in only
quoted text that is relavent to your reply. A good
example of excessive quoting is sending a 2 line
reply with a 15 line quote.

4. Please limit the size of email signatures. This
problem is compounded when your email service (Yahoo,
Hotmail, etc) appends its signature below yours.

Subject: FTE Small - 10 People needed. Computer progamming system for EEC-IV Speed Density V6 EFI Engines.

FYI, copy of a post to the Kunz Corner board.
=============================================
Hi There Folks,

Well, I may have found a little present for you. I have been hounding the
chip companies for some time and finally have some success.

FYI, I have found a company who will develop a computer programming unit for
the 2.9L. This unit will enable tuning your own chip -- on the truck....
enabling you do to any most mod you want and correct all the needed computer
attributes yourself. The company is EFI Systems Inc., at
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://efisystems.com

I received confirmation yesterday morning that they could develop a EEC-IV
Speed Density 2.9L V6 version of their "PMS" system (now in use for 5.0L
engines). They will develop IF we get 10 people to put a deposit on them.
Cost is being negotiated, they are now asking $740 for the whole system (we
will try & work it down). Before you barf on the price, check out the site
below for more details. There is also a nice article on the system in Feb
'99 SuperFord Magazine.

This system will allow EFI users to use modified cams, stroker cranks,
higher compression, changed injectors, superchargers, etc.

The system should actually work on any EEC-IV Speed Density controlled V6
engine. So, please help me find some more of these applications. The more
the cheaper.

Please pass this message on to any one or any message board who may be
interested and have them contact me (at bmarrs abpac.com) or post your
interest under my message ON THE KUNZ CORNER BOARD at:
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.ford ranger. com/wwwboard3.html.

Happy New Year!

From: Daniel Chace
Subject: FTE Small - Ranger Clutch

This morning when I went to drive my truck (1993 4.0L w/ 5spd) I could not
get my clutch to entirely disengage. After noting that the master
cylinder resevoir was empty, I filled it to the line with barake fluid.
This did not help the problem. The pedal does not feel like it is pushing
anything until near the end of its travel. I followed the directions from
an old Chiltons book to bleed the system, letting it gravity bleed until
clean fluid appeared then closing it up. I pumped the pedal many times
but there was no change in the feel.

Does anyone have any tips to help me fix my clutch? It was working fine
when I drove it last night. Thanks in advance!

Dan

Subject: FTE Small - 94 Explorer and 4WD

I've got a '94 Explorer and I'm not extremely familiar with 4WD (No
owner's manual), but I was wondering if there's a right or wrong way of
engaging the 4WD function. It is a push-button (shift on the fly) 4WD,
but when I recently tried it out, every time I turned the wheels it made
some horrible rubbing noise and slowed the car down to almost a stop.
Any insight? I tried stopping the car and shifting into 4WD while I was
in neutral, but the same rubbing feel and noise happened again!

You can engage your 4wd anytime under 50 mph just don't go on dry
pavement...And when your done the slippery stuff stop take it out of 4wd and
back up ten feet to disengage the hubs......dign

Okay, I don't know if any of you are audio experts, but i certainly am
not! :) I currently have two 8's behind my seat, and was wondering if
anyone had any luck fitting the same size speakers UNDER your seat. I
know you must get seperate boxes for it, but i dont know if they will
fit under my seat. Since I have a regular cab (91 Ranger), I'm kinda
cramped for space. I want to put two 10's behind the seat and the 8's I
have now under it, but do not know if I can fit them under. Lemmie know....
