Jon, I suggested having a section about the theory of operation. Could the "How to section" be utililized to reflect the theory behind, lets say, cooling systems and diagnosing. Charging systems and what to look for. We, the mechanics here on this site, have our trick ways of doings things. Our personal short cuts to correct the problem. We want to share our knowledge I'm good at what I know, but suck at what I don't. I want to learn from others in those areas. Its an unzip your pants thread, "the critics", but I'm game. Everyone specializes in something. Is the "How to Section" the place to do it?

the how to is the best place for that, its the place to write up how to do anything, even how to make a pbj sandwich.

Purchased my first Ford usually a Mopar guy. Picked up a 1989 Ford F150 extra cab short bed with the 5.0. Tired old motor new tranny. Looking to lift it and throw 44s on it. Just building a weekend toy for playin in the mud and the river. No idea where to start. First off will i need to switch axles to stronger ones. Should I switch over to a straight front axle or is the stock set up fine? Would be nice to make it as tough as possible but fundage is not abundant. Any advice would be great.

How do you get submissions approved? Ive had one the submission section for awhile now...not approved yet. Its a how to, on how to remove interior door panel on 09+ models. A very frequently asked question

Default rusted out core support replacement.

I made this account to do a write up on how to replace rusted out core supports on the late 90s early 2000s f150s. I had a guy get quoted $1200.00 for the job, so I told him I could do it for him for much less. Doing a quick search I found this is a very common problem but couldnt find any write ups on guys that have done the job themselves. Im nearly done with the job now and would like to do write up with some pictures for you guys, but I cant post a new thread. . .
