My 1985 F 250, with a 351 modified Cleveland (1978), is vapor locking in
the 95+ NM heat. Anyone with experience/ideas would be appreciated. Took
us all day to get back home, cooling it down with water over theradiator
and ice cubes on the fuel line, which runs across the top of the engine.
Fuel in the fuel filter appeared to be boiling.

Thanks for any help.

Well I tried the really fine sandpaper. I am either not using enough
force or the stains are down deeper than the paper can get. No big deal
I guess, don't have to keep it as clean this way ;-)

Thanks
Casey

Have you changed out the thermostat? If so, then the next step
is to check the timing (too advanced and it runs hotter). If
those don't do the trick let me know.

Larry, I have a couple of questions for you, but your email address is
no longer valid. Are you still on the list?

Subject: FTE 80-96 - F250 HD popping sound

I am not sure whether or not I read about a similar problem a few weeks ago,
but suddenly my '97 F250HD with 8000 miles has started to make a very
annoying popping or clicking sound, mostly when I stop, turn or accelerate.
My truck is a 2WD supercab with a PSD, 5 spd. manual and a short bed. I
remember reading about someone saying that they found a loose crossmember,
but mine seem to check out. I should add that this is not the switch on the
accelerator or the clutch for the electronic controls of the PSD. It seems
to come from around the driver's side firewall or floorboard and almost
seems as if you can feel the pop or thump, ever so slightly, with your foot
on the floor. I can't find it, my Ford dealer thinks that I am crazy, and
it is drving me up a wall! If anyone has any clues, please post a note or
send me an e-mail. Thanks in advance.
