I started seeing it yesterday, but I have my ad blocker turned off as it was causing some errors when enabled. I will turn it back on and see what it does.

Ok, that got rid of it and I can still see the signatures, that was the problem before.

We aren't the only forum with the ad, and Nabble seems to know from whence it came.  So hopefully they can remove it quickly.

I had my ad blocker turned off as well, so enabled it and it did strip out the ad but left the signatures - which was exactly why I had it on in the first place.

But I'll turn my ad blocker back off since I need to see anything that happens.

Re: Website & Forum Suggestion Box

Not a suggestion but a question.
Does this site have PM (privet message)?
I ask because I was bouncing between 2 sites and had a PM window pop up saying I had a new message but could not find any place on here for them and no new PM on the other site.

I think I found where the PM came from, a site I had open on the browser, have like 4 open tabs, but do not go to much.
Thanks

There's no PM function here.  Wish there was.

Gary, when you get a chance, in the 385 engine parts, if it isn't there already, could you add the oil filter adapter, block insert, bolt etc. for up to the early 1990 like you did part of for me on FTE. I have the O-ring PNs for the adapter to block and under the bolt head for the 1988/ adapter. I do not have the number for the gasket (hard washer) under the bolt head for 1983-87. I had a fellow in the 429/460 group on FB looking for the block insert.

Thanks!

Bill - See if this answers the questions: Engines/385 Series.

(Waiting on our daughter to show up, pack up, and then we take her to the airport for the return to Nicaragua.  So, I've had a few moments.)

And, by the way, I prefer giving the person asking the question on Facebook a link to the page on the website rather than the part number.  That's for two reasons.  First, if they pick the wrong part number that's on them.  Second, it gives them access to the resource so they can answer their own questions in future.

That was where I was going to send him, I do that frequently. I looked first and didn't see it then.

Gee, notice that the oil filter threaded piece was a B8A PN? First application would have been on the FE engine introduced for the 1958 model year.

I'm glad things have cooled off a bit in Nicaragua so hopefully things will settle down and everyone can get back to some semblense of normalcy.

Ok, a couple of items, I was looking at the illustrations on the Windsor family trying to find a PN for a fellow on FB so I could link him to it, it is the manifold heater/temp gauge/throttle body heat fitting. It might show up in the HVAC stuff, it isn't in the cooling system. He broke the 5/16" nipple for the throttle body heat off.

Second, in your F O R D section, 1985, Sterling 10.25" rear axle introduced for pickups, cab and chassis retained the Dana. 10.25" track for DRW was increased allowing for a "normal" bed floor (50" between inner fenders). This made the 1985-1986 DRW bed unique to those years. A later bed will fit, but the tail lights are different as is the rear corner styling and the tailgate uses larger pivots (not a real issue) and (big issue) a completely different latch system. DRW fender styling, but not size and mounting also changed in 1987.

First, I'm unclear what you meant about the DRW width.  I assume you mean on my Bullnose FAQ's page.  But are you saying that the 1985 and 1986 DRW's for both pickups and cab/chassis trucks had the normal axle width for SRW applications?  And, that means that the 1985/6 DRW beds are different and don't have the 50" between the fenders?

Then, that the track for both of those was increased in 1987?

Second, I'm not sure what part you are looking for, but is it shown in this illustration?

The piece he was looking for is the one screwed into the intake behind the thermostat, it has a heater hose nipple, place for one or maybe two temperature senders and a 5/16" nipple for the TB heat. It is the 18B402. but I suspect the original may not be available any more

On the DRW trucks, until 1985 on Fords the SRW and DRW axles were the same length and if you looked at the track width the SRW rear wheels track essentially directly behind the fronts, with a DRW truck the centerline of the rears track there. In 1985 on the pickups, Ford started using a different axle housing, their own, and moved the rear wheels out so the center of the inboard rear is in line with the front wheel. This (a) increased the width of the truck to right at 8' and (b) allows the same center floor on the bed for SRW and DRW beds.

Here is a picture showing the difference in length beyond the spring pads.
SRW is in back DRW in front

Not really a suggestion, but I couldn't find your F100 Pony thread. Did you know Ford sold Escorts with a Pony trim level? Per Wikipedia

"...was the Pony model, which was the least-expensive U.S.-built Ford at the time. Pony models used plainer interior trim with greater use of vinyl and plastic instead of cloth, and a 4-speed manual transaxle was standard, although buyers could opt for the 5-speed found in LX models or the 3-speed ATX automatic. The list of available options was very limited, to the extent that such luxuries as power steering and factory-installed air conditioning were not offered (a dealer-installed A/C system was available). "

I wonder if someone made a mistake when writing/updating the MPC? What year is your MPC from?
