    Fuel filter 7.3

    I shopped around on E Bay and found the old style w/o the lid for my '97. Might not be the best known brand, but they are working good for me. A lot less $ too. I was not going to pay $20 or whatever for a fuel filter at Pep Boys.:watchout

    Post Pics of your OBS here

    This is my '97 F250. I bought it new in Aug. '98. I have just over 100,000 now. This was my son's '95 F250 with a 460 in it. It was quite a monster. Here he is climbing up Oldsmobile hill in Glamis, CA. He traded it in for this '06 F350 diesel. It has 54000 miles on it.

    D.E. is available at any pool supply store. It's used in pool filters. And it's pretty cheap. I will try it out on my ants. I hope it works.

    photos When too much is really too much

    What craks me up is the ghetto...ees I guess, chrome up all the parts that the designers tried very hard to hide. Door handles, gas doors and the lines where the doors meet, trunk lid to body, etc. And the ghetto ees add chrome to all these places to bring them out! :dunno

    comment Wanna save fuel? Make all right turns!

    My guess would be idle time at signals. You can turn right on a red after a complete stop,in Ca.

    A classic movie

    Well, they were removing track so the wheel would fall down, then go back up. A pipe wrench would make the wheel hopp up. I wounder if that's the difference.

    keyless entry code

    My son bought ,used, an 06 F350. It has keyless entry on the door but we don't have the code as he got the truck from a Chevy dealer. Does any one know a way to get the code, or to reset it back to default? The Ford dealer can do it through the computer but they want somthing like $80 bucks...

    Question Noob to PSD - Cruise Control Problems

    My first guess would be the torque converter is locking and unlocking. Could be a problem there.

    What kind of diff oil

    Well, I thought I could drain the old oil out through a drain plug and refill through another. That is why I was going to use the dyno oil. It looks like I have to remove the whole cover. So I'll be able to clean it all out and install synthetic oil. Any recomendations? I also need to change...

    best mileage from a powerstroke

    I get around 16-17 running empty to and from work, with 4-10's in the back. 2000 rpm seems to be the magic number. Above 2000 the mileage drops dramatically. I put my Lance camper on and run 70mph on a trip and only get around 10mpg. Then Ill keep the camper, add my 10,000lb dirt bike...

    HID light conversion?

    My son got rid of his '95 and put his HIDs on my '97. I really like them. But I don't have high beams now. He said that's just how they are. Is this true? I don't know that I would ever need them again with the HID's being so bright, but I wonder if there is a law about having high beams that a...
