RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

ill see if i can lower the tank and see if there is a access for a internal pump, but so far i havent found any wire or hosing that leed to the top of the tank at all, my manual says there isnt one installed just the external pump. Ive already rebuilt the carb and the accelerator pump as well as other diaphragms were replaced, i had talked to a carb mechanic a while back and that was one of the things he suggested. Those specs are the specs from the factory, i dont have a way to test exactly what it is doing at the moment due to lack of funds. There is a pump in the gas tank, as there is not a mechanical engine-mounted pump available that can draw gas from 18 feet away and 3 feet lower than the carb. There is no fuel pump on the engine, either. Be sure to get the right pump, based on the year of the driveline, NOT the year on the title. In 1987 Fords changed the gas gauge resistance, so by installing the wrong pump the gauge will register empty when full and full when empty. I should know, I have one just like yours, with a 1986 driveline with a Holley carb. The pump you claim that is under the vehicle is actually a fuel filter, be sure to replace the element inside, which is available at NAPA. I am really curious as to how your carb guy didn't notice that your engine is fuel injected, Ford switched to FI in 1987.

Here is a good explanation for a Holley power valve-

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

You may want to consider moving the ignition coil off of the engine and mounting it as far away as possible so it doesn't get so hot. I did that with mine and it runs great. Use a heat shield also, as the engine compartment gets hot as an oven. I would post a photo of how I did that with mine, but I can't figure out how to post a photo on this site.

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

Drop the tank. Something may be plugging the fuel pick-up hose, or the hose has a crack allowing air in instead of gas. Replace all rubber fuel lines if you haven't already. I have an '87 Gulfstream with the 460. There is a fuel pump in the tank, the relay is up front and is easily accessible.

RE: 1996 itasca suncruiser 32' w/ ford 460

The Ford 460 has a great reputation as a heavy-duty and dependable engine. The transmission should be good, too, assuming it has been maintained. The power steering pump may leak, but they all do.

How do I post a photo?

I use Google images, there are no instructions anywhere on how to post photos. I can usually figure this out, but the site is impossible. Help!

RE: FMCA Western Rally in Indio

I live in Indio and always liked driving by the fairgrounds when that event was going on.

I wonder how many lawsuits have already been filed. This could get really expensive!

RE: Harbor Freight Jack Stand Recall

Here's what I bought, rated at 12 tons total a pair. The rear axle of my Class A has 7,100 LBS on it, so I will use 4 stands to hold it up if all the tires need to be removed. 2 work OK for just one side of the axle. I use 4 for the front, too, when necessary. Made in the USA! Hein-Werner

RE: Jack Stand Recall

I'm getting rid of mine, even though the numbers aren't in the recall. I'm going to buy another style of jackstand for the motorhome, this looks stronger. There are other brands out there, this is just a design sample. Google this- BIG RED T43004

RE: Older MH mpg with diesel

My neighbor has a 20 year-old diesel like you describe. He claims to get 10 MPG no matter how he drives it.

RE: Chassis battery issue

You may have a parasitic drain killing the battery. Disconnect the NEGATIVE cable, set your VOM to Amps, and check between the negative post and the cable you just disconnected. 50 milliamps is the normal maximum drain by standard, if there is more you have to isolate that device by process of elimination. I had the same problem with my Class A with both batteries. I found the rear camera was draining the house battery and a courtesy light was draining the chassis battery. The latter was a mystery, since no light was on anywhere. I pulled fuses until I got a zero amp reading in both cases.

RE: Is anyone going anywhere?

With restaurants closed except for fast food, all cooking would have to be done in the RV. My thought is that as long as you're in the motorhome you are socially distant by a lot. Just stay away from other humans except to get supplies, gas, of empty the tank. As an added bonus traffic is down. Just use common sense precautions to keep from getting the virus. Or stick to back roads and enjoy the scenery. Just for a couple days would be enough! I have a sewer dump at my house, properly plumbed into the main sewer line. I'm not planning a trip, except in my dreams. Just thinking out loud.
