Please help me get the fan clutch off my Ranger!! Truck is 94 4.0L.
I gave it all I had and cannot get the thing off!!! (Why couldn't Ford just bolt it to the water pump like it was on my S-10 ??). I used the wrenches I rented from Auto Zone and the one for the fan clutch nut just made some ugly spots on the nut. I've got a friend who has a regular open end that I think will work. Is that thing just on there hella tight, or am I doing something wrong?? Im turning the nut CLOCKWISE when I'm facing the truck, which I believe is correct because it has a reverse thread??. Someone please tell me if there's a trick I don't know or if you just gotta put mega balls on it...
thanks

Subject: Anti-freeze question

Here's a good one maybe for the "professional wrenches" among us.

I sent the wife out for a couple of gallons of anti-freeze the other day,
so I could top off the overflow tanks on the "fleet". I told her to just
get what ever was on sale.....

She came back with 2 gallons of "Sierra" propolyene glycol anti-freeze.

Gave me the spiel about being less toxic to animals, etc. With 2 dogs
running around the yard, I can see the point.

My question is, is this stuff compatible with "standard" ethelyne glycol
anti-freeze?

If it is, I will switch over when each vehicle comes due for coolant service.

Right now I just needed to top things off.....

A while back I posted a question about the wipers going off at whim on my
1999 Ranger.. You all told me that the wiper switch was defective, and
thanks to the snails pace of your average city Ford dealer's service
department my truck is going in on Monday night to have the replacement
switch installed on Tuesday.
The reason for the second posting is if any of you get the same problem
with your vehicles, I just recieved a letter from Ford wherein theyre
informing me of the problem and recalling the truck for replacement of the
wiper switch with an new and improved design. In case any of you get this
problem its Program Number 00B40 and it alledgedly affects the 1999 and 2000
model year Explorer, Mountaineer, Ranger, Expedition, Navigator, and Villager
vehicles.
Some of you mentioned that you had this repair done at the dealer prior to
the recall. In my letter it says if youve had this done, you can bring the
paid receipt back to your dealer and get your money back for the repair..
Ford also claims that theyre willing to gie out a loaner car for one day
while the repair is done... perhaps you can also get a refund if you push the
issue if you neede to pay for a loaner while your truck was being serviced.
Ford gives the phone number (800) 392-3673 for customer service or ( 800)
232-5952 as a TTD line if theres questions or concern regarding this matter
Hope this info is useful to some of you guys out there!
Bob

Gang,

I was recently contacted by a lady whose father passed away. He
left behind a large collection of magazines and she thinks it will
be a shame to throw them away (and I agree). She's trying Ebay,
but regardless of whether she can sell them, she doesn't want them
to go to waste.

As many of you know, old magazines contain a wealth of information
that can be hard to find otherwise, especially for those of you
who are restoring a truck. Some of them might be collectors items
too.

Here's a list of what she's got, please contact her for specific
issues:

about it.
