RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

Just another wild guess, partially stopped up muffler. ???

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

Your engine temp is too low, you need the correct thermostat. That can cause bogging issues also.

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

Tank venting system failing not letting tank breathe. ??? When it quits open gas cap and listen for vacuum.

RE: First time out problems

RE: Back fire and power loss

I had the same thing with a 1983 Winnie 7.4 that I used to have (sold in 2001) and I can't remember what the problem was. ??? But I do remember it was associated with the distributor. Could have been with the advance or ignition trigger or trigger wiring. Should still be HEI distributor, BEST non-computer ignition system ever made!

RE: O2 Sensors in 8.1 litre W22 Workhorse

Always find an OEM part number then google the number and you will find other sources cheaper. Any of the replaced sensors have a warranty?

RE: Generator vapor locking

You should be able to check the switch just by unplugging it. Mr Gasket sells different psi fuel pumps and you can get them at most auto parts stores. They even make a diesel fuel pump (green), I have one for the lift pump on my farm tractor.

RE: I'm buying one (surprise)

Generator needs more than 1/4 tank of gas to run, check gauge. Safety feature so you can't park and run out of gas. Water, either fitting broken from freeze or drain open still open. ???

RE: 2008 Itasca catalytic converter & pipe stolen

CAT buyers are thick on FB Market place in my area. Too bad they don't put VIN numbers on Cat Converters! New vehicle dealers get hit a lot too.

RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

To check head gasket you do a compression check. Has the timing been checked to see if it is correct? Possible advance problem, vacuum hose?

RE: fluxuating oil pressure gage

The first thing I would do is "T" in a mechanical gauge and mount it somewhere in the engine bay to confirm problem is not the engine.

RE: gps for the MH which one

I have a Garmin and it has sent me down dead end roads, had me make 4 right turns and come back to where I was! I never really trusted. I got a smart phone last summer with google maps and love it. I had trouble with it NOT talking in my 2016 SUV and found I need to turn off bluetooth for it to talk. My 2004 PU does not have hands free and phone talks great.

RE: Engine heat

Common complaint with the Fords. Get a spare fire extinguisher too!

RE: Battery disconnects above door

The switches control "Latch Relays". The relays look like a solenoid but are not and they are way more expensive. The switches are Rocker Switches, I had the switches get sticky in a 1989 Southwind and it burned up the relays! Try to find an owners manual for proper way to operate them.

RE: Storing Diesel long term during COVID

Just have spare filters and know how to change them if needed. Condensation might be an issue and it will stop at the filters. I don't think I have ever changed a filter without dumping the contents in a clear container (2 ltr bottle cut off) and checking for water! Just today I spotted water in a neighbors Kubota Tractor filter and poured contents into bottle to show her. I have reused filters too when they were clear or not that old.

RE: Running norcild 1200 off the alternator

What failed on the alternator? That's where I would start, they are pretty simple and the failure might point to the problem.

RE: Vintage Winnebago Star of the Movie

Back then they had 3 base models- Brave, Indian and Chieftain. My 1974 Indian was on a Dodge Chassis with a 413 cu in engine and had plenty of power. I used to tow an 8000 lb boat about 500 miles round trip to the Keys.

RE: Vintage Winnebago Star of the Movie

I had a 1974 Winnebago Indian. The one in the movie was shorter, I guess politics at the time (oil embargo in 1974) caused downsizing. Mine handled horribly with the front end too light! It had tanks, generator and 2-40 lb propane tanks behind the back axle. You had to watch the outside mirror for a semi passing, it would blow the RV 1/2 a lane over if you weren't ready! Bought it with a bad delaminating roof and replaced it myself, had to build it on the ground then put on and fasten. BUT, I still had good times in it!

RE: Vintage Winnebago Star of the Movie

I saw the movie The Pleasure Seeker last week /snip/ For those purists who might want to look the movie up, it's actually The LEISURE seeker. OP was deriving PLEASURE watching it..:B....Dennis Must have been that spell checker changing things! (That's my story and I am sticking to it!!) It is a good movie that also covers the subject of Dementia.
