Jim,

I appreciate your help and I will re-check my MAP circuit later today if I feel better and it is warm enough outside. I am just getting over the flu. As I said before, I have already replaced the MAP sensor. I think I will try and clear my codes and start again.

Number of subscriptions has hit 100! I had expected it to hit 100 on Friday as the new sign-up rate has been 10 per day but the number dropped dramatically - probably due to Valentine's Day as the number of postings has also dropped during this period.

Also, digest format is under testing. So far so good. Will keep everyone updated as to when this will be available.

Everyone please remember that you cannot unsubscribe by sending email to FORDTRUCKSlofcom.com, you must send it to list-requestlofcom.com. I've put a form on the Ford Trucks List web site to handle unsubscribing automatically. Also included there is a link to the L.O.F. Communications subscription page. This handy page lets you put in your name in addition to your email address when subscribing (if case your name isn't included in your postings you can unsubscribe and resubscribe using this page). Also, this page lets you subscribe to any of the emailing lists available through LOF Com with one easy to use form.

To: FORDTRUCKSlofcom.com

After a hard stop last week to avoid an idiot who ran a stop sign, the ABS and
brake warning lights are on in my 93 Ranger. When I turn the key on, they go thru the normal cycle and go out. But at the first brake application they come
back on. The brakes seem to working fine. Fluid level is OK. The diagnostic code I get is 4 flashes, which, according to my Chilton's, means "RABS valve switch closed". Is the valve unit stuck/broken/need replacement? Can it be repaired or is a replacement item? It looks expensive. Or is it something simpler (and cheaper)?

Any insight into this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks...

Chuck,

About 2 or 3 months ago there was an article in Truckin magazine in the "Ford Forever" editorial written by Garry Pratt. In this article it listed all the known Ford Truck clubs in Canada and the US.

Good Luck,

I am in the process of restoring a 1947 Ford Panel Van. It is the only one that I have ever seen (aside from a picture in a Shop Manual).

It has the same frame and cab as a pickup, except that it has a van body instead of a box. And that is all I know.

Do you have, or can you point me towards information about this vehicle?

Man, I hope not. That'd be like the scene in the movie where the guy was crying because he found *apanese parts in his Hog...

I guess in this day of global manufacturing, sourcing, etc., anything is possible. I doubt they were invented offshore, though. We invent everything over here, and then everyone else rips us off, miniaturizes whatever we make, and then sells it for less.

Helm Prices for 1996 F-Series (from order form in Owner's Manual)

FCS-12107-96 F-150 - 350 Service Manual $ 90.00 FCS-12106-96 Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis 160.00 FCS-12137-96 Light Truck Service Specifications 32.00 FCS-12129-96 F-150 - 350 Electrical/Vacuum/Troubleshooting 30.00

I got the service manual, "spec book", and the EVTM. I don't know how useful the Powertrain control doc will be without the diagnostic equipment that Ford makes/uses...(Helm screwed up the order three times, so it may take a while to get 'em all)

Some of them need to be shimmed. It's a 2 minute job with the right part.

Yes, they're all the same. Contrast this to the conventional designs, such as on the Cummins B5 series...

Just out of curiousity, which hotel did you stay with? I certainly didn't get that kind of deal!

I can't imagine the hotels being any less, unless they were free! We paid 39 bucks for a suite with a wood-burning fireplace (and a supply of stacked wood), a king-sized bed, and a jacuzzi!

The previous night we did rough it and get a room with a king-sized bed and cable TV for $24.95, though.

When in Sevierville, make sure to stop in at Smokey Mountain Knife Works,
and if you're a ham radio operator (or play one on TV) go see the folks at Ten-Tec. Makes you feel good to see Americans kicking butt in the technology game, using parts they design and manufacture right there in their own plant.

Jon

P.S. I don't own stock in, nor am I employed by any of the aforementioned.
They're just neat places that most car/truck guys would like.

I forget the route number of the main drag in Pigeon Forge, but the real nice place was at the east end, really past where the strip and hotels end. I don't recall the name of it, but there was a riding stable up on the hill in the next lot over. Oak-something or other, or woods, in the name.
It's a fairly small place, maybe 20 units? and I'll be pretty pissed off if they have the "No Vacancy" sign lit, and I see your truck in the parking lot!

The other motel was west, in the main part of the strip, and we just checked a few and when I heard a price I liked we signed on the dotted-line.

After I posted that price report, I realized that we were there during low season (between Christmas and New Year's) and I'm sure that's why it was so doggone cheap. We felt like we were the only ones in town! But the first night we tried to check in to the deluxe place, they were full. So we made a reservation for the next night and came back.

I guess they'll make it all back in the springtime!

Best Regards,
Jon

Subject: Intermediate Steering Shaft 79 F150 4WD To: FORDTRUCKSlofcom.com

Subject is what I'm looking for. I have a 1979 Ford F-150 4WD that has a bad universal joint in the steering shaft between the steering column shaft and the steering box. Ford says they stopped selling them 2 years ago. I also called a bearing company to see about just replacing the u-joint. They also told me the bearing was out of production with none left on the shelf.

The Ford part number for the intermediate steering shaft is D9TZ3B676A.
The u-joint is a Torrington MYT661.

Can anyone PLEASE tell me where I may find one of these items? I would really hate to part with the truck over something so minor, yet so neccessary.

Thanks in advance for any info.

My solution was to use an intermediate shaft out of a late 70's,early 80's GM mid size car. (Monte Carlo, Grand Prix,etc.) I was able to combine parts from the Ford and GM to make one shaft that worked. I used the truck that way for about three years and never had a problem. I'm sure that if you look around in a junkyard you'll find something that will work.

Why not go to a junk yard and pull the part or if they won't let you pull it, ask them for the entire steering column with the part?

Mitch,
in 47 Ford made three versions of a panel truck. One was called a Sedan Delivery and was built on a car chassis. Since you say yours is just like a truck, it is probably not this one. The other two were both built on truck chassis and were both called panel delivery trucks, one with a 114 in wheelbase (body type C82) and one with a 122 inch wheelbase (body type Y82). Both used the 59A engine with the Ford (Holley actually made most of them) 2V carb. A heater (if you want to be an optimist) was optional equipment, and it was not a fresh air type, was heated by hot water and had a small fan with a defroster. Having used these things many times, I can tell you that they did not do much in the way of climate control.
However the body on these things is so ugly that they are quite likable.
Turn signals were also optional equipment, they were all dealer installed I believe, and were not self cancelling. The transmission, if you have the four speed, is fully unsynchronised. A real joy to drive until you learn how to double clutch fluently.
If you need more info on the engine like bore and stroke etc, I can get that but I don't have that at home.
Regards,
Roger Meier
