RE: How hot is HOT

Guess you just can’t ask a simple question in the tech forum.

RE: How hot is HOT

Well the obvious answer is yes. But as many of them are, they measure resistance and display somewhere between C and H. As you may or may not know, a scan gage can be programed to display coolant temp in degrees. So my rather simple question was at what temperature IN DEGREES does a fail safe operation occur? As someone stated around 265. I did find a pic of a gage that was stenciled as 265 on the H side. Didn’t show the make of the vehicle though.

RE: How hot is HOT

Currently not a problem, just watching the scan gauge and wondering what temp action should be taken.

How hot is HOT

Ford v10 (v8,v6) when water temp reaches a certain temp, half of the cylinders shut down into limp. What is the actual temp in degrees that this occurs?

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Is it an illusion or just the angle, but the pics from the ground looking up underneath , it seems to have a significant bow in the frame you welded up?

RE: 1997 Class C E-Super Duty Instrument Cluster

A scan gauge will provide that and much more. Have one mounted on my 97 e350 steering column. Had same engine temp problem. 2 sensors on top of (assuming you have v10?) motor, driver side. One easy to get to, other difficult. Replaced easy one still didn't work. Broke down and gave to Ford dealer, $500+ later, replaced both sensors and wiring harness to them.

RE: Ford V-10 Sparkplugs

My v10, sticker date 5/97 has a "V" in the 10th position. What I read this equals a1997. The engine code is in the 8 th position, which on mine is a "s" which equals a 6.8 Sohc Mfi.

RE: Oxygenics Shower Head

We use a rubber band to hold it in the clip when traveling. If you just lay it down, it will still bounce around. Did break one when it bounced out of the clip.

Mark hole to be cut. Drill small hole in each corner. Use a cutting wheel on a side grinder. ONLY cut half deep all the way around, then finish cutting on the other side. A jig saw will leave a very ragged cut on the bottom side.

RE: 2006 E450 front shocks?

Some have drilled a hole big enough for the proper socket in the top of the fender well, directly over the top shock stud. Use a long extension to reach the stud.

RE: Ford e350 airbag light 1997

Any idea where the RCM might be located? Ok, read more about this. My light is constant, no flashing codes. Reading indicates that the default is armed, so should probably deploy if an accident. My luck, even with the battery disconnected, fooling with it will make it blow. Been living with it on for some time now, guess just keep on going.

RE: Ford e350 airbag light 1997

Yes there is a passenger side bag. What is RCM? Have a full time scan gauge plugged in, no codes. All wiring seems to be in good shape.

Ford e350 airbag light 1997

I have changed the passenger seat base with a base that allows the seat to swivel and face the rear. There is only one wire harness under it with 2 pins. Since I have done this, the airbag light (yellow) in the bottom left side of the dash display will not go out. I’ve reset the harness many times, but can’t get it to go out. Ideas?

RE: Ford 6.8 v10 E350

Op here, really great pics! This is a good series on what we have to go thru. Nothing like a F series, which I also have. Looks like the electrodes were about gone on those plug pictures, how many miles were on them? Your sig looks like this might be an 03? My fuel rails look a little different, but basically the same. Still looking for the flat hour rate discrepancy. Ok, just read all of the link previous posts. Answered most of my questions

Ford 6.8 v10 E350

Checking labor rates for a spark plug change. Mine is 97 and was quoted 5.2 hr flat rate. For the same e350 but a 2005 the rate was only 3.8. I know the early ones like I have, have short thread pattern that tend to spit plugs, but the 05 had the problem of snapping plugs when they were remove, one problem for another. I know the middle plugs on both sides are REAL tight to get to, but on both Year models. Fuel rails etc are in the way. So why would there be an hour and half difference for the 2 models?

RE: Alternator amps?

Op here. 2 holes in the "Y". Reddish hue on the windings. So 130?.

Alternator amps?

1997 E350 6.8 . How can I tell what is the rated amps for this alternator? There are no visible tags or markings. A place I read says all 6.8 have 130 amp, another says could be 110 or 130. Nothing in my Ford book says.

RE: Vinyl peel and stick material

That wrap would probably not work on anything but flat cabinet surfaces. Raised panel, any groves,radius corners would be out.

Battery disconnect wiring

On the house batteries, do you break the positive or negative on the disconnect. Am seeing it done both ways?

RE: Batt discharge rate

Op, 2oldman, that was a good read, thank you. So the answer to my question per that read was lead acid will discharge " 1 to 15%" per month with a whole lot of "depends". AGMs will discharge 1 to 3% per month. After that read, Wish I could get some GC batts in my confined space, just not enough head room.
