To keep the injectors clean ? Run quality fuel, like Chevron, Shell or Texaco. Nothing will destroy it faster than running crap gas with no additives. Once the injectors start to gum up, then you get...

Ok, I was under the assumption your truck was complete. I've seen one guy spend a few grand converting an FE pickup to a small block. At a minimum, I'd build on a 94-97 roller 351W, not a 302 based...

Once you add up all the costs of converting that truck to accept a small block, you could have built a biatching 390. Talk about a HUGE step backwards here.

I torque em to 25 ft/lbs and repeat till the gaskets fully compress. Should be no need to retorque after doing this, no matter how many heat cycles. I did the last on my 96 E150's 351W last year,...

I'm perfectly aware of all that. If your weight distribution is that far off, then nothing you do to the ABS will solve that. You're completely ignoring this fact. You need to address the weight...

I've driven every type of vehicle known to man. I've got over 4 million miles behind me in 40 years of driving trucks. So don't tell me I don't know squat. If the proportioning is that off, that...

The ABS unit is on the frame rail under the driver's seat area. Just look to where all the brake lines converge, that's the ABS unit. Have you flushed the brake lines of all the old brake fluid ?...

Why do you feel you "need" ABS ? The brakes will work fine without it. And with enough driving experience, you'll do just fine without ABS. If you rely on it to stop you on "iffy" road conditions,...

Get a heat gun or a small propane torch and heat the body of the distributor. Then apply torque, gently in small increments.

I don't see how going to a lower load rated tire would void the warrantee. As long as you don't exceed that rating in your loadings, you're fine as far as any liability increase goes, but even then...
