RE: Engine miss in hard rain

I’m thinking that’s how the smart money would bet. Old mechanics trick for next time. If it does it again spray down cap and plug ends with WD40. It displaces moisture, so if it stops missing you’re on your way to the fix.

RE: Surge Guard - Need Vs. Cost

Just make sure whatever you buy it has an auto reset feature.

RE: Project complete: 500w solar install, plus 2000w inverter

What was the logic for running so much wire on top of the roof vs plunging inside?

RE: What the heck? I thought motorhomes lost value fast!!

When I got into class A’s 13 years ago CrankyApe web RV auction site was huge. All those Class A’s were getting repo’ed. Give it time.

RE: OBD-i and OBD-ii did a '96-'97 F53 ever have diagnostic plug

high on the steering column and under the dash sounds impossible to get access. I went through both of the Ford manuals on the chassis and there is no mention of an OBD plug or diagnostics plug anywhere. OBD-1 where your right knee would be, then forward.

RE: 2021 Ford F53 Chassis v8 engine

The V10 was designed for commercial applications and never placed in automobiles. If the newer V8 is going into cars, I’m betting it’s nowhere the engine the 10 was.

RE: Terralab RV furnace (vintage? Oddball?)

Thanks you two. Getting so close to making it go. Guessing it has no hours on it, but pack full of acorns, mouse nest material, and corrosion (jet and fan.) if it was any other winter it would go in the garbage can. That exploded service manual is dang close.

Terralab RV furnace (vintage? Oddball?)

Has anyone heard of Terralab Engineers inc RV furnaces? Thinking it came out of a pop up. Trying to make it work but I need a service manual if possible. Anybody have one or a link to one. I believe the fan relay switch is bad but having a schematic might help in nailing it down.

RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

So what weight oil were you running? Dino, blend, or full syn?

RE: Blown engine

Check Nada it appears your rig is worth 20k. I wouldn’t put in more then half that to get it back on the road. So used is the way to go IMO. NADA click

RE: Emergency HELP Please F53 Fuel problems

Update ?

RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

That ford 460 is a flat tappet engine. I'm guessing you could be using the wrong oil in it. What you want is oil with Zinc. I use to run 15w40 Rotella. Do a Google search on zinc in oil. The new oils don't use it anymore but that old motor requires it. Guessing at high rpms you're creating more friction = heat.

RE: Emergency HELP Please F53 Fuel problems

Those v10 MH were also know for a coil or two going bad. They got 10 of them.

RE: Ford F53 460 powered fan clutch options?

After checking your transmission fluid take a sniff test. If it smells burnt (or over30k) swap it out.

RE: Ford F53 460 powered fan clutch options?

That fan clutch is bimetal and I doubt it gets weak. Either works or not. Works off of ambient compartment temperature, not engine temperature. I’m guessing your real problem is in the cooling system. When was the last time the fluid was changed, or even flushed. Also check your transmission fluid.

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

Sounds to me like the coil was your problem. A coil should always be bone dry. The only time might not is when someone sprays it with WD40 trying to get rid of moisture. An engine will run hot when it’s running lean. I suppose an incomplete combustion might mimic that condition. Only real way to know is to get it on the open road. As I remember a coil has a primary and secondary coil. You won’t put both under load until you take it for a spin. As far as a small bog still. Guessing you can now notice It since the big one is fixed.

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

Ignition Coil? Sometimes the older ones heat up and fail until cooled. This would be a good cheap guess. I would replace it, what you’ve described sounds a lot like what happens on very old outboard motors. You lose high spark when the coil gets hot. Still has spark but weak.
