    Hi Argo! Just shouting out to my fellow Italian!

    Hey sorry it took me a while to get back, didn't see the message. I was in your day class at the beginning of '07. January I believe, but it has been a while. I had Mr. Krystopa too and he was definitly an interesting guy, had some cool stories. I'm not a very rememerable person myself, I was driving a baby blue C1500 and a generic white ford ranger when I went to LTI, and that ranger is still my DD.

    I have been enjoying my '88, just got it back from paint (maaco) after spending a couple weeks on bodywork and it looks great. I've been adding little things here and there, once I get my new wheels and tires on it, I'm sure i'll have pictures up. Still need to do some maintenance, like hoses, fuel lines, probably new brakes, etc. but it will be damn near a new truck when I'm done. It does always start up for me and run really smooth. Great power too. This F150 is much more of a truck than my C1500 was, and it'll be cleaner when I'm done with it too. I'm a sucker for a clean pickup truck

    What year were you at LTI? Were you in my class? I was the fat red-headed Italian with a goatee, Mr. Borrelli. Not to be confused with the fat clean shaven pompous (but lovable) Eagles fan Krzyzanowski, or the huge barrel chested, bald mountain man Mr. Krystopa. Were you an afternoon student or a morning student (or an evening student? I taught all three classes at some point!). I hope you are enjoying the never say die engine in your truck! My engine is over 300,000 miles now, and still rolling strong!

    It's always good to really enjoy what you're doing. I ended up not sticking in the automotive field myself, but I really did learn a lot at LTI, and I've been putting it to use almost on a daily basis. A lot of the stuff I learned in Basic Electrics really stuck with me, and has helped me a great deal. I also just picked up my first full size ford...'88 F150, 300 I6, 128k miles, 4x4, with the mazda 5 speed. All the talk in class about that engine stuck with me, almost 4 years later

    Hey, you wouldn't have taught at LTI in Philadelphia for a while would you? I remember receiving a handout in Electrics class with "Argo" written on a full-size ford. The truck in your gallery looks familiar as well. I remember a lot of talk about 300 ci fords in class. It stuck with me so much, it inspired me to seek one out.

    Sorry I have been super busy and I haven't been online in a while. Do you still need the diagram? FWIW 1995 is OBD I and doesn't monitor the AIR system, so you probably don't need it.

    argo,

    I have a '95 E250 that is getting a rebuilt engine, however, no new AIR tube ($1300 for the engine and $320 for an AIR tube). Would be very interested in your rewiring diagram. [email protected]
