    What are your thoughts on nylon fuel line

    Did a 4.0 swap about 10 years ago and plumbed everything with rubber fuel injection hose, I've been thinking about replacing it with OE style nylon line and push connect fittings as I can borrow the tool to properly assemble the lines. I feel like it's a better choice than using rubber lined...

    Let's talk about teaching dinosaurs new tricks.

    It's probably been asked before but I'm going to beat that dead horse a bit more. Does anyone know of anyone who makes custom chips for EEC-IV? Anyone to avoid? Looking to swap to larger injectors due to the stock ones not supplying enough fuel for what I'm doing. If anyone here does such...

    I've been attempting to change the tire size and abs reluctor wheel tooth count using forscan and it keeps coming up with an error saying it's an invalid configuration and won't go any further with it.

    Sticking GM parts onto my 4.0 swapped 86 (M62 supercharger install)

    I've never actually done a write up ever, and never intended to do it with this project but it seems like there is some interest so I'll bring you along for a probably not so brief account of how I made everything work. About 3 years ago I decided that I wanted to install a supercharger on my...

    Option I never knew existed, has anyone ever actually seen it?

    In the process of repairing and rerouting some power window and lock wiring on my 86 I noticed some extra wires in the harness that goes across the radiator support that appear to go to power mirrors.

    Swapping a later parking brake pedal assembly into a first gen

    Has anyone ever swapped a later parking brake pedal into a first gen to get rid of the stupid adjustment system on the first gen trucks? Either I've read the adjustment procedure wrong or the system just sucks. I can make a handle to release it, thats not an issue, it just seems like a better...

    EEC-IV tuning options?

    Over the past few weeks a friend and I have adapted a GM Eaton M62 supercharger to a 4.0 OHV. I know that the M90 has more potential but I wanted to be able to use the charger without modifying it to a great degree and the commonly available GM variants are too long to do that. I am running...

    An update on the oil cooler article, possibly

    A while back I was reading the article about the oil to coolant oil coolers that could be retrofitted on the older trucks that use the FL1A filter, the vehicles referenced as donors in the article are getting difficult if not impossible to find in salvage yards and since Ford stopped using those...

    98 ranger 2.5 no heat

    I've been pulling my hair out over this, maybe someone else has run into it before, it had sat neglected for some time and the coolant was rather rusty when I purchased it a few years ago, I just did a drain and refill at the time and it was okay until this winter. I was noticing that I was...

    Ford motorsports speedometer questions

    Went to a local junkyard today and scored one of the 140 mph first gen speedometers for a steal. Was wondering of there is anything special I need to do to get it to read correctly or if it is a drop in and go kind of deal. If anyone would be willing to email me some original instructions that...
