Subject: Re: Splitfire Spark Plugs

Spark plugs serve one purpose: to ignite the air-fuel mixture in the cylinder
(OK, combustion chamber :-) ).
If your current plugs do this, special plugs can't do it any better.
If your current plugs are worn or fouled to the point where they won't ignite
the mixture any more, using fancy plugs won't solve the problem any more than
new stock plugs will.
Those "tests" that show otherwise are faked.
The only time a "better" plug is warranted is when new stock plugs won't do the
job, for whatever reason.

How about the Bosch Platinum +4 plugs?  I was going to try a set soon.

Assuming that the F-150 is similar or identical to the Expedition:
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.xpedition.net, the home page of the Expedition Owners Group.
Click Enter, Expy FAQ, then scroll down to keyless entry addition. Stage
two describes how to remove the door panel as part of a larger project to
install the door keypad on the otherwise non-equipped Expedition.

Hope it helps

Subject: ADMIN: Tragic loss

I've just received notice that Jan and Pat Ford had a tragic loss.
Their youngest daughter was killed by a drunk driver about 3 weeks
ago.

For those of you who don't know the Ford's (no relation to FoMoCo),
Pat and Jan Ford have been an enormous part of the Ford truck hobby,
especially for antique trucks.  They put on the F100 Supernationals
and have done so for over 20 years.  Not only that, but they are
really nice folks.

I'd like to show them we care.  Ford Truck Enthusiasts is asking
its members to send loss/sympathy cards and we'll put them together
in a package and send it to Pat and Jan Ford.

The cards should be written to Pat and Jan Ford and sent to Ford
Truck Enthusiasts at:

Ford Truck Enthusiasts
PO Box 422
Lilburn, GA 30048

Your participation in this would be greatly appreciated.  I'm sure
this is a difficult time for them and any comfort, no matter how
small, is sure to help.  Please try to send something by next Friday
at the latest.

Sincerely,
Ken Payne
Admin, Ford Truck Enthusiasts

I ordered a F-250 and changed it to a F-350 on 7/3.  They didn't start the
2001's
till 7/31.  Mine was built 9/12 delivered 9/29.  What is your priority code on
your
order?  If it is a 10, it means build it as soon as you can.  If it is a 20, it
means build
it whenever it works out for you.  I only order from dealers who give me a 10
code.
There have been some material holdups, also, auto trannies delayed it for a
while and
crew cab 4x4's were limited for a while also, I believe.  If you don't get a
good answer
from your salesman, or get a 20 changed to a 10, there are dealers who will do
it.

Not specifically for the 650 or 750, but FTE does have a SuperDuty/Heavy Duty/Diesel list.
