I went down to the local junkyard and bought a set of the stainless steel
kind. Cost me $20 and an hour of installing onto my 1988 BII. I'm very glad
that I made the switch, as the steele ones are much better mirrors too.

Speaking of getting a little hot under the hood,(I have a stock Bronco II) I
went out this weekend to Silver Lake Sand Dunes in Hart Michigan with a
couple friends of mine. Everything was going good until I started racing and
the clutch started getting hot. The last owners said that they installed a
new clutch like a half a year ago, but I think they did a piss poor job.
Anywho I got to the end of the track and my bro started yelling at me to stop
the truck. I didn't see anything but I stopped anyway and looked out the
passanger side window and they were smoke billowing out from under the hood.
I toatally fried my clutch. Anyway to make a long story short my clutch is
fried and I had to get a tow from Hart Michigan to Traverse City Michigan by
a Suzuki Samurai (It's about 100 miles). Just a little story I thought I
would like to tell.

Subject: FTE Small - Master Cylinder replacement

OK guys, here's a task for someone if they're up to it. I need to know how
to replace my master cylinder in my '91 Explorer 2wd. I'm a starting
mechanic, so please keep the instuctions simple. I've heard it's quite a
task from my friend with his Mustang and I'm willing to tackle it if someone
has the time to tell me how. Please e-mail me directly as to not tie up the
lists. Thanks so much to those willing to take the time to help me save
hundreds and get to know the insides of my car. :) Take care all.

either get the special (din I think) tool for pulling it out. Or bend a
coathanger so that 2 ends of it (you'll need to cut it) will go into the 2
holes on either side of the radio (ok 4 holes total, do one side at a time
if that'll work, or do both at the same time) anyway down in there the tool
will hit a release and it'll slide right out. (I've heard the tool is
pretty easy to find b/c all ford radios use the same system.

Takes a special tool... Looks like a big metal U with a notch on the top of
each leg... They fit in the two holes on either side of the radio.

Subject: FTE Small - "New" old Ranger needs a boost!

I recently bought a '90 Ranger XLT, 4-cyl., 5-spd. 9 years old it only
had 57,000 actual miles, never off a paved road...I love the truck. It is
the first Ford anyone in my family's ever owned. Anyway, Considering the
engine it runs great, but I have been driving a Dodge with the Cummins
turbo and I was wondering... What would it take to turbocharge this mild mannered 4-cyl., what would it cost, and would it be worth it? I'm looking for
performance, but the kind that makes the truck a work worthy machine, not
a drag racing demon. Any other tips will be appreciated!!!

Silver Lake is in Mears, MI.... just thought you should know......

the only problem I had there with my Bronco II was my distributor cap
getting wet last year, but it was still a blast, even though my buddie's
GMC Sierra Z71 was doing all the cool stuff with no problems
