  1. Think I Threw a Rod....

    Electric heat? Way to easy. We do it this way, and it's cool. First we convert dinosaurs to oil, refine the oil into gasoline, use the gasoline to run an internal combustion engine, cool that engine with antifreeze which heats up the antifreeze, then use an engine mounted pump to circulate...
  2. Think I Threw a Rod....

    You asked a question and I try to make it as clear as possible. Must be a Detroit thing. Maybe you need a "reset", because you never did answer my questions.
  3. Think I Threw a Rod....

    I did some programming.. 30 years ago :p, but it seems to me like they could have it set-up when you push the "Tow" button, that it changes the program... then when you disengage the "Tow" button, the tune changes back? Maybe that's another $850... :surprised:
  4. Think I Threw a Rod....

    Which makes a person wonder if that is in the fine print on the other tunes also. It kind of makes sense. The tune is about making short burst HP, right? (Think dyno pull) But if you are pulling that much for mile after mile, hour after hour that's some serious strain on the motor. (Think...
  5. Think I Threw a Rod....

    Ugh. Let me walk you through this. You stated: So why did you ask him about resetting the tune? If I were standing beside you when you said that, I would have asked you: "Why would you do that?" And in reply, you would have said to me what, exactly? You see that's the thing about the...
  6. Think I Threw a Rod....

    Because we all know, how a person actually drives the vehicle has zero impact on damage, or lack there of, to the vehicle and it's components. Am I saying the OP did something wrong? I don't know, and neither do the rest of us. Can we at least be realistic? As soon as somebody starts talking...
  7. Think I Threw a Rod....

    So if your motor had the same build date, you wouldn't be interested?
  8. Think I Threw a Rod....

    CSP?
  9. Think I Threw a Rod....

    My truck has 07-19-19 on the window sticker. The motor build date is 05-09-2019. Ideally, if there is a motor issue, the motor build date would be really useful to know.
  10. Think I Threw a Rod....

    Engine build date... or truck build date?
  11. Spare tire lift chain binding

    I check the spare air tire pressure every time I rotate tires. I guess I'll give it the old 5 lb hammer test now too!
  12. Spare tire lift chain binding

    Varsol and acetone are both paint thinners. The chain is painted. Ask the undercoating folks what they recommend. The last thing the OP wants is to do further damage.
  13. Opinions on these door sills

    More stuff I don't understand from Ford, they seem to forget the "good features" from the past? My 1931 Model A Ford has "Zinc" door sill scuff plates. Ford put plastic sill scuff plates on previous Rangers.. but not this generation. But they did put a huge Ford logo in the front of the bed...
  14. Spare tire lift chain binding

    -or- Take it back to the undercoater. They should at least be able to tell you what solvent to use to clean the chain and mechanism. They really shouldn't have sprayed undercoat on the chain. Toyota had a recall in 2014 due to corrosion of the carrier cable, maybe that's why Ford is using...
  15. Spare tire lift chain binding

    Take it to the dealership, it's still under warranty, right?
  16. Wheel Spacers; Good or Bad?

    You're right. No anti-seize, oil, grease, nada on wheel studs or lug nuts. I don't think Mark did based on the photo's. I just wanted to be sure he was aware of that though as his wording in his post was unclear, at least to me. If he had used anti-sieze and 150 ft-lbs, I'm thinking the...
  17. Bought a money pit!

    Amsoil?
  18. Wheel Spacers; Good or Bad?

    That's a bad assumption Rick. Case in point: I emailed the folks at Fabtech about their Intrusion Beam Relocation Kit and asked if they did any stress analysis or destructive testing. They said they don't do anything like that. Some of the aftermarket parts have zero testing, just some...
  19. Spare tire?

    Here's the stock measurements..
  20. Wheel Spacers; Good or Bad?
