RE: Good window sealant

I used double sided eterna bond tape. Pulled each window clean, tape and install. Took a few hours to do all. Did that 4 years ago and no leaks. I also like 3M 4000 UV for a caulk, adhesive and a sealant on anything else on the outside of an RV except windows.

RE: E350 ignition coils

i used to maintain a fleet of E350. I would get 500,000-600,000 miles out of them. Ford had problem with their COPs from 98-2004 I would change them all and be done with it. Changing plugs is not the horror story these guys a portraying. I never sprayed any lube done the hole. Never a problem. I would use compressed air to blow out the hole after the coil is removed. You would be surprised what dust and dirt comes out that you do not want to fall down into cylinder when plug is removed. Also magnetic spark plug socket that comes attached to a long extension is your best friend for doing plugs. Can be had at auto zone for $12 JKaz

The best place to check for level is in the freezer. I agree the absorption refrigerator is the best place to check. That's the only reason I level. To make sure I don't hurt my fridge. Bullet level in freezer. JKaz

RE: Scan tool for wasy to read Ford $06 misfore

Why not just change out the remaining oem COPs and be done with it. You can buy them for $30-40 each. Ford oem cop had a problem from 2000-2004. After that they were fine. I use to maintain a fleet of ford trucks and those years were the problem ones. I would get 500,000-600,000 miles out of them. JKaz

RE: Towing with a Ford E250 Van (4.6 liter, V8) in the mountains

I tow with a 2000 E150 conversion van with a 4.6 with 3.55 gears. I'm towing 5000#. No problem. Just keep over drive off and let that small block sing. Handels the mountains of NJ and PA no problem. I do have rear air bags and a blue ox equalizer hitch. You shouldn't need the air bags do to yours being a 250 but they can't hurt. JKaz

RE: About long-term storage of Honda eu2000i

Run it completely dry of gas. Have a 25+ year old Honda genset that starts on the first pull every time. Never store a small engine more then a month or two with gas in it. Your carburetor will thank you. JKaz

RE: Cold Air Intake

My motorhome is a 1995 Class-C Ford E-350 with a 460 EFI engine...I have upgraded the exhaust with Thorley headers following the dreaded exhaust leaks and snapped bolts...I am now ready to upgrade with a Cold Air Intake system...I'm looking for advise on options both homebuilt and ready made systems...Thanks for a great forum...John from Henderson NV How hard was the job? Power increase? Any bolts break while removing them?. I have been tempted to swap over to headers but it so tight in the class c doghouse that a broken a exhaust bolt might mean pulling the head if not motor. JKaz

RE: spark plug change 99 v10

Get magnetic sparkplug socket attached to an 8-10" extension. They can be had at advance auto and such for $12. There is a universal between the socket and extension. Makes getting by the fuel rails easy. A real time saver in removing and replacing with not having to worry about dropping the plug of losing the socket down the hole. JKaz

RE: comfort shocks

Never heard of them. Im interested, I put bilsteins in my van and MH and i'm not all that impressed definitely ride harsh. My understanding is bilsteins have a lifetime warranty. Wonder if they would do an exchange? When I bought them (e shock) they only listed one shock for my vehicles. JKaz

RE: Can Change 3.55 Gears to 3.73?

You could go with a 2" smaller diameter tire to get you near the 3.73 gear ratio your looking for. JKaz

RE: Bilstein shocks?

I put them on my 2000 E150 conversion van. Up front were I drive they feel great. But out back they are harsh. Kids complained about the ride so I aired up the rear air bags to 30# and they said it was better. Do notice alot more rattles and squeaks that where never there before. Using it to tow my car and trailer this weekend to Ohio we'll see if they are better with some weight on the. suspension. Also put a set on my MH. Took some getting use to the handeling because the old shocks were junk. They do ride harsh. Not what I was expecting consider everyone praise them. JKaz

RE: Ford 4.6 Triton

I have a 2000 E150 conversion van with the 4.6. I have towed my race car on an open car trailer (5500 lbs) for years without a problem. Handel's the mountains of NJ And Pa no problem. And yes I have towed over 70 mph. So the speed police can flame me too. JKaz

RE: Need cruise control cable 1990 E350

1990 was aftermarket cruise control. ALL the RV aftermarket cruise control makers went out of business in the mid 90's when the cruise controls became part of the Chassis equipment. SO, about the only place you may find that cable is from Winne if they still have any. Doug Are you sure? Mine 1989 MH on E350 has a stock ford steering wheel with the controls on the wheel incorporated in the horn. For the OP try car-part.com or your local junkyards. JKaz

RE: Opinion on 01-04 Chrysler Town & Country

I have a 2007 grand caravan cargo I use for work. I was a die hard ford econoline guy until I got this van. I load 1000-1200 lbs of water plus all my gear and if hasn't missed a beat. Its capable of hauling 1700 lbs. Has the auto level suspension that works great. Its got 180k on the clock and I'll get 300 out of it. I have the 3.3 and its got plenty of power. Gets 18-21mpg depending on the load. When I'm loaded I do not use overdrive. I did a lot of research on all mini vans when shopping and the caravan was the way to go. 2006 and up have better transmissions. The trans on the 2005 and below were the week link. Motors if taken care of will run forever. I would not hesitate go buy one, damm good vehicles. JKaz
