I had a problem very close to this on an '84 F150.  Turned out to be that
the roll pin that held the dist. gear on had partially broken.  I had alot
of timing problems untill the pin sheared completely, then the truck did not
run at all.  Took about an hour to replace the pin.

Date: Tue, 6 Feb 2001 09:48:01 -0700


Greetings,

I'm in the beginning stages of putting an auxilliary tank on my truck.  I
got a bed for free that has the openings for a dual tank so I'm going to put
in the behind the axle tank.

Here's the question -- Is there any problem with using copper refrigerator
tubing as the metal portion of the fuel line?  It seems cheap enough,
readily available, and easy to work.  I was thinking of 1/4" tubing too.

Thanks,
Chip

The copper line is a very bad idea for fuel line. The copper line will work
harden and crack or split where the tubing encounters a bend or where there
is a flare made. The aluminum line or steel line is not that expensive.
(cheaper than a fire). You can find the correct tubing at automotive or
hydraulic supply stores.

Subject: F250 4X4 problem



Members of the list,
I know this is a little off topic so please bare with me. My brother has a 98 F250 4X4. Recently
the torsion bar on the right hand side of the truck broke, it broke while sitting in his drive
way, this is a truck that has yet to see any wheeling. The dealer wants $500 bucks to replace the
torsion bar. My qeustion is this where could I get a torsion bar, the local parts houses cannot
get one and I know that replacing the things isn't that hard. Does anyone know where to get the
torsion bars.

Thanks in advance,

Paul Rozell

Greetings,

Has anyone had good or bad luck with Murphys Autobody parts?
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.murphysautobodyparts.com)  I found a good price on tail lights
there but don't want to get swindled.

Thanks,

From: Joan and Walt Posluszny <redstonehome.com>


It 's time for me to replace the radius arm bushings on my 85 F140 4x4.  My
buddy suggested graphite impregnated bushings so they don't squeak.  Is
there a FAQ someplace that details this replacement?  I'm considering doing
this job myself.   Thanks,  Walt

Ok, replying to my own message.  The tail lights that murphy's had were
$6.99 each for the entire assembly.  The best price that I could find
elsewhere, http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.mrtaillight.com was $23.  They seemed to have pretty
decent prices. and at that rate seemed worth the risk so I ordered a pair.
I'll keep people posted on the results of what I get etc.  Just thought I'd
let those "early adopters" know about it.
