Subject: FTE Perf - ADMIN: Charity Event (HELP!)

Due to a late start, and low contributions, the annual charity
event has been extended to January 14th. Following is the
original announcement... Please help us out, both causes are
very worthy of your support.

The Association of Ford Truck Enthusiasts (AFTE), the non-profit
club made up of Ford Truck Enthusiasts (FTE) users, is holding
their first annual charity event (actually, their second, though
they were not yet organized as a club them).

This year, AFTE is raising funds for two causes:

1. a list member's son who is a paraplegic and could really
use a decent laptop with voice recognition software. He
became disabled last year and needless to say, he's not
in the best of spirits. I think we can bring a little
joy into his life.
2. the Georgia LoRiders, a long standing Ford truck club,
is raising money for the family of a child found in the
family swimming pool. The child is brain damaged and the
father must stay home to take care of him because the mother
is VERY pregnant. AFTE is going to donate any money left
over from item 1 to the Georgia LoRiders for this family.

There are three ways you can donate:

1. Send a check or money order to:
Association of Ford Truck Enthusiasts
re: Charity Drive
Box 562
Tecumseh, MI 49286-0562

2. Via credit card on the web. The FTE web site is set up
to take credit cards. We're going to add an item to the
cart for this. You'll be able to select any amount you
want. All funds will be forwarded to AFTE for their
drive. The address is:

3. Via credit card on voice mail. FTE's phone number is
770-806-1955. Leave name on card, type of card, card
number, expiration date and amount to donate. Also,
PLEASE leave an address so we can mail a receipt to you.
All funds will be forwarded to AFTE for their drive.
This number is busy in the evenings!

The laptop purchase receipt and the check cut to the Georgia LoRiders
will be scanned and placed on the web site so everyone will know their
donations were well spent. There will be zero administration costs.
All money will be spent for the charity. We're trying to raise at
least $1500.

Subject: FTE Perf - Oilpan gasket...

Just a word of warning to anyone out there with a Ranger/Explorer type
vehicle with a leaky oil pan gasket... Replaced one on a 93 ranger today
with 3.0L v-6... ARGH!!! You have to A)Pull tranny or B)Pull engine... I
would suggest pulling the engine, cause even with the tranny out you have to
take the motor mounts OFF, and raise the engine ~3"... So, just a word of
warning - plan for a day long job, book calls for 6.7 hours... Had a guy
tell me heat the gasket with a torch, and stretch it over the pan.... I Dont
think so Tim... Anyway, thought I'd pass this valuable experience on.
