RE: Ford F-Super Duty Truck manual

I have the 1995 Ford Motorhome Chassis Service Guide manual that includes the F53 & Class C. Part# FCS-12214-95. This manual doesn't have anything on engine, transmission or rear end tear down. Also the 1995 F53 Electrical and Vacuum Troubleshooting Manual Part# FCS-12260-95 I'm sure they are out of print but were originally available from Ford @ 1-800-782-4356 Your model year would be very similar. You may be able to find used manuals on the internet Good Luck. Dwight

RE: Crazy steering wobble/shake

At what speed did the wobble start. Other times when you felt a slight wobble that quit on it's own - what speed & had it just been serviced that time also. You may want to find a place that can do a very high quality dynamic spin balance of the front tires while still on the vehicle (Jefferson Bus Lines or a larger local interstate trucking company etc. are some ideas) Dick at Precision Frame & Alignment in Elk River 763-241-9474 may be a good first call for help. Motorhomes are one of his specialties. A steering tie rod dampener type of aftermarket product may be the band-aid needed to give you piece of mind that it won't happen again. (Be sure the product doesn't limit your tight turning ability)

RE: New invention could benefit RVers.

I applaud this youngster for his efforts, and predict he will go far just by applying well known principles. However, the real impact would come from getting a number of large school districts (to make the carrot big enough) to issue fuel efficiency goals as part of their high volume bus acquisitions. Take a look at bus concepts. I sent a congratulatory e-mail in 2010 when he started this idea for a school project but warned him that the school bus industry moves slow. The Blue Bird school bus body that he is standing in front of has not had a change in body shape since 1965 and the windshield has the very same dimensions and vertical mounting since 1962 and up to the present day. 51 Years same windshield. The very first bus shown in the bus concepts is a Flxible bus. A popular type used in many WWll movies & the movie "RV" staring Robin Williams. Our family converted 2 into motorhomes and I still have the 1941 model that my father converted in 1952. Dwight

RE: Exhaust manifold gaskets / Ford 460

JimMartin Try a longer bolt first. You may be able to pick up enough thread in the hole to tighten the manifold. If not, do as lre01 suggests, and go with a helicoil. BTC Use a bottom tap to extend the threads to the bottom of the hole in the head.

RE: Exhaust manifold gaskets / Ford 460

Popeye766 I would not remove any rubber shields surrounding the radiator. When you get into a heavy pull on steep grades at slower speeds the hot engine compartment heat can recirculate right back around the radiator and cause overheating. I went to a company like Home Depot & bought rectangular hot air heating ducts with round 8" spouts and mounted the rectangular end under each side of my front bumper & used 8" flexible metal hose with the end pointing air at the front of the engine ahead of the exhaust manifolds. The floor is also cooler.
