Hey Tim,

Thanks for the suggestions. I can tell you that driving around town and on the highway without
brake fluid squirting out of the front steel lines sure is nice! The new super lift long length
rubber hoses work well. I was a little bit wary because the steel lines are noticeably longer than
the "extended" rubber lines, but everything bolted up really nice and works beautifully. Enough
travel, and there is a lot of slack in the hoses at full extension with sway bars on.

This morning while the preperations are being made in the kitchen, I'll be outside tinkering with

Happy Thanksgiving,

Here's a good one.
My trusty mechanic worked on my '92 Aerostar 3.0 last weekend. He did a few
things, including replacing the PCV valve, which he had to get to by
removing the inside engine cover.

As soon as I got the van back, I noticed that the "Amp" light was on. This
light has been on continuously for the last week & a half during my
hour-each-way commute (the PM trip at night).

I have a decent digital voltmeter plugged into the cigarette lighter socket.
This gauge shows nothing wrong. Charging is at 13.6-14.x at all times the
engine is running. The ratty voltmeter in the instrument cluster also shows
a normal reading. Can anyone give me a clue to why the red light dash light
is "on," and what to do about it?

Sometime in the next 48 hours, Ford Truck Enthusiasts will
complete it's move to its new server.

After the move, the message boards and mailing lists on
the old server will be disabled and DNS records will be
updated to point to the new server.

The new server will be immediately active.  However, DNS
records take time to propagate across the Internet.  Your
hosting company may take 8-72 hours before it points to
the new server.  Until your host's DNS gets the changes,
you will not be able to send email to our lists nor will
you be able to use the message boards.  You will, however,
continue to receive list mail correctly.

Your patience in this matter is appreciated.
