Subject: ADMIN: FTE Preliminary charity results


Okay gang, here are the preliminary results for the 2000
FTE charity drive.  This is by no means accurate, my helper
is out sick today so I ran the charity credit card orders
that I had access to and I believe there were a couple of
checks sent. I'll have a total on those when she gets back.
Also, I've received news that some checks were sent directly
to the family in need directly and I do not have a total on
those nor will I ask the family for the amounts.

Anyway,  we have a total of exactly $500 in credit card
donations raised so far.  A check is being FedEx'd to the
family so they can use it in time for the holidays.  I'll
report on additional funds as I get the totals.  FTE is
absorbing the credit card processing fees and is donating
the FedEx charges in addition to my donation.

Thanks everyone for making this year's drive successful!
Your generosity will make a difference for 2 young
children this year!

Subject: Rear Axle rebuild


I am running an 84 Bronco II with a limited slip rear
axle.  However, I am getting an increasing amount of
vibration from the rear.  Due to the mileage on the
axle (122,000), I would like to replace the clutch
disks in the rear end, replace the axle shaft bearings
and seals, and keep the rig on the road.  My son will
be driving in a few more months, and prefer him to
learn with the BII instead of Mom's new van.  I have
seen several places advertising rebuid kits for rear
axles in the magazines and on the net.  How difficult
is it to rebuild a rear end using one of these kits,
or just to replace the disk packs in the rear end?  I
have a fair amount of mechanical experience, having
rebuilt several engines, and a number of other
mechanical prjects.

I have an 88 Ford Ranger 2.9L.

When I started it this morning and turned the wheel there was a loud whining
sound.  I assumed the PS Fluid was low.  When I popped the hood, there was a
foam bubbling out of the vent hole on the PS Fluid cap.

Since the truck was outside and the temps got into the 20's I assumed that
either the fluid had water in it that had frozen or had some other kind of
clog that was causing the fluid to foam instead of flow.

I pulled it into the garage and let it sit for a few hours.  3-4 hours later
everything was fine.  The foam had gone away and the fluid was at the normal
level.  When  I started it there was no longer the whining sound.

Has anyone had this happen before?  I was debating whether I just needed to
change the PS fluid or whether a part is going bad.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Rick Blanchard

Subject: Explorer - noise/ floor movement when turning the Wheel




I've got a 98 4X4 explorer that makes a popping sound when I turn the wheel.   I
can feel the floor under my feet move when it happens.   It is very repeatable
and seems to be getting worse.  Once in a while I even hear a metalic sound like
there is loose metal,   I don't feel it on the passenger side.     I've looked
underneath while someone is turning the wheel and nothing is obvious.


Any suggestions - I know I have to have it looked at but I'd like to know what
it is before I go in.

Thanks in advance

Ed
