Are you sure it's a return system? The later gens. are not. Our hired man has a 93 (same system) and he has a problem with one tank slowly filling the other, but I think it's due to a faulty check...

Gear ratio and differential type (open vs limited slip) can be determined by the door sticker. The axle itself can be ID'd visually. If the cover is square w/rounded corners it's an 8.8 - If it's a...

Caveat emptor, do your homework. It's alarming how many people don't on such a big ticket item.

That would be the lower left (ground). If the heating grid is good and the slide contacts work, you can do that and still have the indicator light work. That's what I did with mine. If, for whatever...

I'd stick to 2". Any more than that starts taking a pretty good toll on the upper ball joints. Auto Spring is a good product.

It certainly could be the brake light, and we're sort of saying the same thing. The water stains in the rear of your cab is what I was referring to when I mentioned evidence further back. Any leak on...

Definitely drop the headliner enough to get a look at the drain tubes. Quite a few trucks have rolled out with pinched/cracked tubes. Being in a front corner makes me think it may well be a drain...

Your steering shaft U-joints are probably binding. Not an uncommon issue. Give them a soak with Kroil or PB Blaster and see if there is a noticeable improvement.

I suspect / fear you have a blend door actuator dying. I have a feeling that's where Spiky was going too. It's an ugly job.

The only way you're going to get pressure in the axle housing is if the vent is plugged.

You're going to have the tail wagging the dog. You'll really be taxing the rear axle / wheel bearings too.

I like the taller/narrower tire, but have to agree with the above comments regarding wet traction with the Toyo AT series. They are made of a very hard compound and wear like iron, but have poor wet...

I'm pretty sure that's the current latest fix. I've had very good results with Lucas Assembly Lube. It's available at O'Reilleys, AutoZone and probably several others. It looks like green molasses...

A few years back a friend was asking my opinion on getting a shotgun for his wife. I said it sounded like a good trade.

I doubt it's in the springs. Look up "slip bump" or "slip yoke" and see if the symptoms fit.

That's a rapid burst, not a slow wear. Something broke inside. Probably one of the guides. At the upper left corner you can see where it flaked as the piece departed.

Perma-Tex Ultra Black RTV silicone works great. I've always used it and never had a leak. The only down-side is it's more work to clean up and prep next time. My concern with a typical stamped steel...

Obviously nobody has a crystal ball, but I'd guess it was never installed. Ford puts threadlocker on them from the factory and they don't come out easily. Maybe the threadlocker got missed, who...

That's WAY over-complicated. All you have to do is pull the ground wire at the lower outside corner, drivers side. Mirrors work, light works, back glass is dead.

The axle tube is the better place to put the jack, the further away from center the better. It takes the stress off the housing bosses. A lot of people have been using the pumpkin for decades, but...
