Subject: Abs System

WHo knows what the signal is supposed to be from the abs sensor in the
diff to the computer?

1988 Rear Antilock, Bronco 2.

I am trying to get a good reference for what this should behave like,
but I am haveing trouble getting this to look right. I plan to drag out
one of the signal generators from my ham shack, hook it up to the scope
and give the computer some test impulses to respond to.

I put on the K&N FIPK, and I noticed a difference.  I know that it's still
getting that hot air from the engine compartment, but I still noticed an
improvement.  I'm working on a way now to get fresh air piped in to feed it
better.  Any ideas?

Run it to the fender well, put hole in fender well and seal it off.
that will suck cold air from the fender area outside the motor
compartment.  I know someone that did it on a mustang and it worked
great for him.

Subject: Brake Troubles

Can anyone take a look at this picture:

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.jps.net/jmclaugh/Adam/caliper.jpg

And tell me why this is happening? the brake fluid seems to be leaking
out from the caliper. How come? These are less than a year old, and the
assembly is a new caliper, new pads, new brake lines, etc.

I checked into my brake lights and found the master resevoir completely
empty! Whoah!! How come this happened? I had to use a screwdriver to
pull the float up..

I checked the brake line bolt as shown, and it is as tight as can be.
Why would this be happening? Could the crush washers have gone?

WHy did this just start happening, anyway?

No problems since I installed them, last summer.

Looks like what you said, the crush washers between the banjo
bolt/block/caliper are probably leaking.  You didn't re-use the old ones
when you reassembled, did you?

I've had great results from the soft copper ones at Pep Boys, just bring
one of your old ones as a guide and dig thru the drawer bin to find a
match.  Don't know how anal you are about torque specs, but the banjo bolt
is one you want to follow exactly.

In other news: I just had the front pads on my '99 Ranger go down to the
rivets after only 22K miles of service.  Guess my stop 'n go morning
commute wasn't doing them any favors.  I swapped in a pair of Raybestos
rotors and semi-metallic asbestos-free pads for ~$150 total and less than 1
hour of work, really easy on a 4wd with no need to remove the bearings and
whatnot.  My first time turning a wrench on the Ranger other than oil
changes, and it went great!

Hey Kevin and others,

I took the brake line off of the caliper today, and I replaced both of those
copper washers with new ones I had in my junk box for that purpose. The ones
shown in the picture:

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.jps.net/jmclaugh/Adam/caliper.jpg

come with the pro comp braided lines.

After I got everything all clean and put back together, I drove it the two
miles to the gas station and back. Dangit man, when I got to filling station
and gassed up, I noticed it was wet again.

After careful inspection, I think it is leaking from the flanged part of the
braided line. Agh!! Those brake lines were $100 from Pro Comp. Why did they
fail after four thousand miles of street use?

Was it taht the angle is rough on them? Would it work better if I routed the
brake line in towards the front axle, instead of away like it is shown in my
picture?

What is the torque spec on the banjo bolt?

When you replaced your rotors, did you get any ventilated or slotted ones? I am
saving for a set of sloted rotors from ART. They're $240 for a set of rotors
and pads, so I have to keep saving my money. Maybe in november.

Funny thing is, $240 is an insurance payment for me in one month. No tickets,
no stops, no accidents, no meeting cops, no nothing. I hate being young, and in
California.
