Technical Info Hyperlink Compilation

Well, I've been waiting for the UPS guy to deliver my new GoPro HD camera so I figured I'd finally assemble a text file for the ultimate guide to technical info.

I've got both a 2WD Bump and 4WD Dent but most of the links apply to both series.

Ok guys, I am going to sticky this thread. We need a good up to date grouping of threads on tech info put in this forum.

lets not let this thread get to long or I will have to close it so no one can add to it. Too many non tech posts make it unyielding.

Can other people add to this? If not feel free to get rid of this post.

I've had a few people ask me about the HID conversion I did, so here are the links

Rectangle Housing: Sealed Beam Housing H6054 8" x 6" Square - Euro Effects
Standard HID Kit: H4 HID Conversion Kits - Products - BlindingHID.com
Bi-Xenon (hi/lo) HID Kit: Bi-Xenon HID Conversion Kit (Hi/Lo) | Xenon Gas H.I.D Conversion Kit | Auto Lamp Lighting

I'll do a write up if need be

2X....Rather than links to products, the idea here is to provide FTE'ers on tech threads/write ups/personal how-tos, and tech articles.

I plan to update the compilation every month or so.

I do have a link for this request. I'll post it below & I also request HIO to add this link when he updates this thread again.

Here is the link to a 351M/400 ZF5 swap thread from the 1980-1986 truck forum made by Gary Lewis: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...-zf5-swap.html
