  1. I have a 2001 F-350. I am told that I have a "breathing disease" that is the #1 qualifer for handicap parking. In Ca you can be forgiven weight fees on 1 commercial vehicle by installing handicap plates. I put them on my truck and haven't paid weight fees for 4 years. Truck is still registered Commercial and I can haul anything I want. Plus when I need it I can get some damn convenient parking places.
  2. I had the exact same thing happen to me in a Ford super-duty with a 460. I tried jumping it with my coach batteries and convinced myself that it was the starter. After I changed the starter in the parking lot where I was stuck, I called for a big tow truck. I wanted a tow truck with a more than 1 battery to try to get it to crank fast enough to stert. I got the truck batteries and my coach batteries hooked up and tried it. It didn't start but it did tell my what was wrong when I saw the wire in the P/S pressure hose start to glow and smoke. I stuck my head under the coach and found that the ground strap between the engine and frame had broken and all the extra amps I was using were searching for a ground and found it in the pressure hose. As soon as I repaired the missing ground everything was fine. I can't say that you have the same problem but I would hope you would check it out before you spend a lot of cash that isn't needed. Of course as soon as I got to the freeway and got up to speed the baked pressure hose exploded, but that's another story.

  5. you got it. make sure the sender is grounded good to the frame. on old trucks when the ground is attached to a crossmember you can loose the ground through dirty and rusty rivets and bolts. IT COSTS NOTHING TO ADD ANOTHER GROUND WIRE FROM SENDER TO MAIN FRAME RAIL AND IS GOOD INSURANCE.
  6. if you can get to the top of the tank, unplug the wires from the tank unit. then with the key on place a jumper wire between the sender wire coming from the gauge (i think it will be a tan wire) to the frame. with this wire grounded the gauge should go to empty. with the key still on remove jumper and gauge should go past full. if this all works as i described you will have tested the gauge and all the wiring in between. don't worry about needle not moving after key is off. remember it takes power to move the needle. key off=no power to gauge.
  7. Before you pull the tank try grounding the sender wire as close to the sending unit that you can access it. when that wire is grounded with ign. on the gauge should read enpty. With the same wire unhooked with ign on gauge will go past full. If you run this test before you pull the tank you might find that there is an open circut between sender and guage.
  8. 3 toggle switches. Ign, Lights, Whip light. 1 push button start switch.

  10. I HAVE SEVEN OF THAT SIZE TIRE MOUNTED ON SIX LUG CHROME SPOKES. I SWITCHED MY TRAILER OVER TO SIXTEEN INCH WHEELS. THE TAKE OF TIRES HAVE ONE TRIP TO IDAHO ON THEM. THEY ARE "D" RATED TIRES. I COULD NOT FIND "E" TIRES IN FIFTEEN INCH. I THINK THAT GOODYEAR HAS MADE THE FIFTEEN INCH TIRES IN AN "E" IN THE PAST BUT THEY MAY HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED. WE COULDN'T FIND THEM WHEN I WAS LOOKING AND THE TWO GOODYEAR COMMERCIAL DEALERS WE BUY FROM WERE UNABLE TO TELL ME IF THEY WOULD BE AVAILABLE AGAIN. I KNOW THIS ISN'T EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR BUT IF THEY WILL DO YOU ANY GOOD I CAN MAKE YOU A GREAT DEAL ON THEM. DAVE HUPMAN (925) 963-2833
