I don't understand...
If you don't open attachments when you don't know what they are, and thus aren't infected
with the virus, why are you off the list???
I realize that, being off the list, Chris can't answer, but does anyone know what he's
actually trying to say?
Is this a case of the first two lines of Chris' post being a quote, and the last line
being a cry of rage?

Apparently the scum got ahold of the list e-mail addresses. Fortunately for
me I am not stupid enough to open attatchments not knowing what they are....

I just had that emailed directly to my box, nice... I am off this list now.

I believe he was referring to another list that he is now off of.  His
posting was a continuation of a prior post.

Ken,
For those of us who are not real computer savy, what would you suggest for
antivirus software. Or should I go to the company I bought the system from
and take their suggestion.

I don't know if its wise to put a non Ford comment on this list but for the
sake of everyone relating to the antivirus thing, Nortons makes an
inexpensive anti virus software that is not only quite good  but comes with
updates. Im not all that computer savvy  but my computer geek tells me that
this is one of the better values with  Anti Virus Software. Mc Affees is also
pretty good and is also on the inexpensive side.

From personal experience, Norton is a superior product.  I was running McAfee
when I got nailed by a trojan worm virus.  The first thing it did was eat McAfee
for breakfast.  Norton Antivirus found it immediately.

To keep this post on topic, 98% of my computer's harddrive space is dedicated to
Fords.

Subject: Lock Right in!


Hey Everyone,

Well, by three o'clock this Sunday afternoon all of the grit was out
from underneath my finger nails. I just finished installing the lock
right for my Dana 28 to accompany the detroit locker in the rear end on
my 1988 B2.

The Lock Right did go in rather easily, although there were some time
conuming parts which I would have liked to have skipped.

Let me say this up front about Power Trax. I did pay them seven weeks
ago for the front locker, but I did not receive it until last friday.
When it came, they forgot to include two small shear pins. I called them
Thursday morning and asked whether I was supposed to have four pins or
two, and they informed me that I needed four, they goofed, and by
Saturday afternoon I had another set of pins. Whoo Hoo! That's good
quick customer service.

The dissasembly went rather easily. I was a little bit dissapointed when
I got that housing down and out because I found that I had to remove the
ring gear and take the carrier out of the Housing to isnstall the lock
right. Grrr!!! This was necessary becuase I could only see 1/5 of the
center pin with the ring gear on the carrier. I would have rather
skipped these steps, but it had to be done. I would have preffered to
just slip it in like they show in the magazines and stuff, but no dice.
That's okay. I marked bearing caps, checked backlash and reinstalled it
the same way it came apart. I took my time and I am satisified with the
way it feels in my hand.

Has anyone ever tried to remove ring gear bolts without having a vise to
put the carrier in? Ack! I had to gorrila grip the carrier with my left
hand, and use a breaker bar to start loosening the bolts from the ring
gear with my right hand. This step in itself took me some time. When
everything was back together I had to torque these to 45 ft/lbs so that
was a fun time too! Ha ha ha.

In the end, I did install the lock right, new right and left axle seals
for the housing, and new wheel bearings all around. This time I used
Marine Grease. It has a nicer bright blue color, but it also much
stickier and harder to move. That's okay though, the guy whom I buy all
of my wheel and brake stuff packs everything for me for free.

When in the Dana 28 housing, I did the C clip eliminator trick, so that
I can swap axles without taking the carrier off of the TTB the next time
I need to do that. That was cool. I hope it helps me in the future.

I filled it up with a quart of Red Line Synthetic shock proof gear oil
to finish it off. To anyone who hasn't used this before, I found it
interesting. The oil is thick, and bright red line strawberry margarita
or Daquari.

If school didn't start Tuesday, I'd be out there wheeling it this
afternoon and Monday. ;-(

I'm pretty happy with it, and I am looking forward to getting it off
road.

Adam
