    Hi there.
    I just joined this forum after reading from the following thread

    I noticed your post talking about the throttle positioning sensor. Is there are way to bypass it on the 84 Ford F150 Inline 6?

    Thanks. You're right--throttle body EFI. Tranny: first, it just slipped out of gear into neutral, twice, and at low speeds. Checked and topped off the fluid with the required type, but it did it again, so replaced the transmission filter, gasket, and put in new fluid. That seemed to solve the problem, but the following day it started slipping again, this time at around 35-40 mph, and go into neutral, or rev high, as if the Overdrive wasn't kicking in. I read more on this site, and tacled the TV Cable adjustment. I've read every post I can find on here about how to do it, and nothing seems to be fixing the problem. I'm wondering how likely it is that the Overdrive Band is burned out? Think it's time for a rebuild (about $2000 at a shop), or replace (unknown $)?

    Hey there. I'm new here, but I've been stalking your posts RE: the AOD transmission for about a week now (I own an 87 F-250 Lariat XLT 4x4, with the 5.0 and the AOD). Been having issues of my own, and tried everything I could find on these threads, to no avail. I'm wondering if I can pick your brain for more ideas?

    Lariat 85; I have seen a number of post concern my issue. I purchased an 85 F150, 6cyl, single carb, 4X4 and 4 speed manual. I am unable to pass MD. state emissions, twice. This project is very challenging and need help. Does my truck have an "electronic carburetor"? Where can I learn about EEC system? Thanks.

    Hey do you have any instructions, diagrams on how to set-up the hot air choke on the 2150 carb? Is it better to have the electric assist part with the hot air or no? Thanks!
