Subject: ignition question


Quick question. I searched the web forum but couldn't find the archives to this list. Anyone got the link?

On the 1bbl 300 in my 85, I remember hearing the ignition fires on both strokes of the engine. For complete combustion or something to that effect. Is this true? Also, is this an EEC-IV or earlier computer?

TIA,

Folks,

I have spilled something in the bed of my truck and can not get it cleaned
up.  I think it is chain saw oil or 2-cycle engine oil or motor oil..or who
knows what.  I also have a hard, plastic bed liner that only adds to the
"slickness".  I have tried regular auto wash, kitty litter (what a mess) and
the degreaser at the local car wash, but it still is as slick as black ice
on a North Texas interstate.

Any help or ideas on how to get this cleaned up would be greatly
appreciated.

Happy New Years!

I would try a spray on engine degreaser like Gunk, if that didn't cut it
maybe paint thinner.

I use lacquer thinner to clean up all my oil spills, followed by a sweep up
coating of kitty litter type stuff.  Not sure how it would react to your
plastic
liner but it does not affect my plastic/rubber oil drain pan.

Don't know about everyone else, but I'm not going anywhere on the rainy slick streets, with all the Drunks about. No I will probably even be asleep by midnight. But HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!!! And here's hoping for a GREAT '01!!!

As far as design, yes the 9" is better than the 8.8.  But there were some
problems with the 78/79 Bronco and pickup axleshafts during production which
made them weak and prone to breaking.
