Not me, man. I'm getting an '86 this weekend which will become my son's first truck in three years. I'm going to spend the next three years fixing it up for him. I love IDIs.

Hello,

The ACDelco 60Gs worked out just fine for me. I found that their performance was superior to the ones most often recommended for these trucks (what are those, Berus or something?). The 60Gs...

Absolutely. The first change on a new (used) vehicle is always the hardest; after that, it's easy (provided I did it myself) !

I wanted to thank you guys -- I got a set of those filter pliers and they were indeed what finally enabled me to get that [email protected]#$%^ filter off the van. It wasn't easy, but they did work.

I got a set...

There's two different versions of those Tekton pliers -- 12" and 16". I'm tempted to get the 16" for maximum torque. Which length have you guys used?

Thanks for the tips guys. I may get a set of those pliers. The problem is getting enough leverage in such a small space -- I have a cheater bar, but there's barely enough room to use it. I may have...

93 E-350 with 5.8L: oil filter removal tips?

Doing my first oil change on my "new" 1993 E-350 with a 5.8L.

I've seen some pretty stupid oil filter placements, and this one is definitely in my top five. So far I have had no luck getting the...

To take it further, pretty much any transmission is going to fail at some point. It's just a question of how long you can push it with good maintenance.

As far as I'm concerned, this one has...

I probably will do just that. In my experience, though, that rarely fixes problems like these and can often make things worse. However, all I've got to lose is the cost of four gallons of ATF and a...

Sure thing guys. The seatbelts seem to follow the same general rule. Ford didn't change the vans a whole lot between '92 and '08 (or later), other than cosmetic stuff. In fact, that gives me hope for...

Okay. I figured it wouldn't be too difficult, especially with no transfer case to deal with, etc.

As far as rebuilding an E4OD myself -- and taking into account I've never rebuilt a transmission...

E4OD woes

The E4OD in my new beater E-350 has seen better days.

The PO told me it has a "reverse issue", especially when hot (i.e., reverse does not want to work).

When it's been sitting overnight...

I guess nobody knows. I managed to find some seats. It appears that seats between '92 and '08 will fit, and after '08 you may need to change out brackets but the seats themselves will still fit.

Hello friends,

I just acquired a $300 93 E-350 Club Wagon.

All it has are the front two bucket seats and one three-person bench seat. Three rows of seats (the rearmost 4-passenger and the...
