I just ordered 17x8 Billet Specialty GTX-01 wheels, 255/55 tires and a
5/5 drop kit. Should be here in about a week and a half. No, they're
not as monsterous a size as the Roush stuff, but will be sure to post
some pics to my web site when the stuff comes in.

Check the TFI module on the side of the distributor.  It is probably dead.

Ok guy's I got a problem here. I have a 87' escort wagon (I know  it isn't a
ford truck) anyway, this particular car has been giving me trouble and I
just
can't figure it out. It is usually dead in that it won't start, has fuel
pressure,
new fuel pump & filter, new ignition coil and a tune up was done on it not
long
ago. On the other hand sometimes it will run for days B4 not wanting to run
any more.

So I check the computer for codes, it is an EEC-IV just like on the trucks.
I get codes 14 PIP circuit failure, 87 Primary fuel pump circuit failure,
and
33 EGR valve fault not closing properly. I have checked the complete
ignition
system coil, wires, connections between computer & Ignition module, ignition
module, hall effect sender in dist, timing, grounds for computer, fuel pump
relay, inertia switch, fuel injector. I have tried to wiggle wires when the
engine stays running for a while.  I found the pow

These are the things I have noticed, I hook a timing light right off the
coil
wire and watch the light flash and right b4 the car dies the timing light
goes
out for a short period of time and the tach goes all the way to 0 and kind
of
flutters up and down until the engine dies.

I just want to know if there is any trick to testing the TFI ignition system
on these Fords so you know what is wrong. Or should I be checking something
other than the ignition, perhaps it is the EGR and nothing to do with
ignition,
or a bad computer.

I AM LOST PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!!! or this car is dead

Anyway sorry for taking up so much space I appreciate any help I can get it
has been driving me crazy for months now.

Subject: Accel BluePrint Distributor ?


Does anyone have an Accel BluePrint distributor on their 57-68?
I'd like to know if the springs/weights are on top of the shaft or
under the breaker plate like a stock distributor. Accel # 9206
Thanks,
Chuck

Vic,

I'd sure like a link to the pics once you get them uploaded. I'm thinking
about ordering the Ford Lightning suspension or maybe go with some GOOD
after market racing suspension. Anyone have any suggestions on that?

Subject: removing fan-clutch on 94 f150 300-I6
From: Andrew Funk <afunkdarkwing.uoregon.edu>


I have a 94 f150 w/ the 300-I6.  The water-pump died 2 days ago.  I got a
new pump, and borrowed the special tool kit from Auto-Zone to remove the
threaded type fan clutch.  However the special tool from Auto-Zone doesn't
seem to fit properly.   The tool box is labeled correctly as the fan clutch
removal tool for the ford 4.9L engine.  The tool is marked as being a
1-7/16" wrench.  I measured it (the tool), and that seems to be correct
size, but it doesn't fit the nut it is supposed to in the fan clutch
assembly.

Is 1-7/16"  the correct size for the tool?  or is there something wrong with
the tool?

Is there something funny/nonstandard about my truck?

or am I completely missing the boat on this?

Any replies or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.
Andrew Funk
