The ABS is for the rear brakes. There is a sensor on the pumpkin and it pokes thru to a mag pickup on the ring gear carrier. I'm sure the problem will be electrical. Unplug and clean the...

You will NEVER get any better mileage out of the C6. Way to much torque converter slippage. I"d convert to a 5 spd in a flash. I did that with my very rusty 88 5spd to a rust free 89 C6, I didn't...

Air pump and whatever......

I did the same to my 97 250. Gale Banks stainless exhaust and muffler built my own bypass pipe. I built a spacer out of 1/4" aluminum to block off the EGR. The position sensor can still move up...

Have a 95 ECCIV swb half ton with a 351. Rust free truck just up from Houston and on a road trip it started to cut out (ignition) Tach would go to zero. It did bounce back to keep moving, but then...

High Altitude Package

I recently picked up a virtually new 97 F250 in Prescott AR. 460, 5 spd, an absolute dream, particularilly for this kid from MN. Older and rust free is very hard to find. Question: I have the...

I have an 89 and a 97 with 460 5spds. The belt you need is: NAPA #060470. Air pump and all the sordid plumbing can be removed, and then you can cut off the bottom half of the alt bracket also. The...

460

There's a lot of talk about the toy engines, please don't forget the real ones Ford made. The 460 in my 97 is awesome. SD on both my 460s (5spds) is absolutely trouble free, but the simplicity of...

With that mileage, I'd be splitting the transfer. This has nothing to do with how much the fwd was used, just a function of mileage. The oil pump, internal on the transfer case, is secured with a...

My '90 has done the same thing, and with a fuel pressure gauge attached, when it doesn't start, there's no pressure. When the engine is warm the fuel pump will not be activated long enough to build...

belt size

I used a 5060475 and found it a titch long, the 470 length works better and places the alt adjust slot right in the middle. Take the pump off, get rid of the garbage, the check valves will hold the...

headers

I would only run with Banks full exhaust system, spendy but well worth it. I've over 60,000 miles on the headers put on in '01. Their muffler is awesome, not noisy but very throaty. The heavy...

I've a 2 ft long oil pump drive shaft used to prime engines after I've had them down, shouldn't be that hard to find. It used to be a NAPA or tool truck type item. You simply spin the shaft with a...
