    School me on 2wd Front Brakes

    I’d recommend getting was many Motorcraft parts as you can. I was able to find all but the rubber line for my rear brakes (through about 7 different vendors). I haven’t started down the “rabbit hole” for the front brake parts yet.

    Steering Columns for 87-91 trucks?

    Look at the "repair guides" / At least you'll be able to see the parts involved with repair.

    Good by and good luck!

    Please don't let an idiot ruin a good thing. I agree that "some peoples' kids" are a REAL irritation, do you let them make decisions for you?...F no! Stick around. You're appreciated by the adult members of this forum.

    Switching tanks

    Yep, that will sure “do the trick”. I guess that I’ve learned: If I “suddenly” experience air intrusion symptoms, flip the switch!

    Switching tanks

    Not long, if you’re running down the road, and you accidentally drain a tank, you have time to switch tanks before you stall the truck.

    Electric fuel pump wont push gas unless engine cranking?

    I had the same question (among others) about his post. My IDIT is a ZF5 truck. 3200 RPM (per Ford tach & Barney Fife) gets me 63 MPH in 4th and it's still pulling.

    Electric fuel pump wont push gas unless engine cranking?

    Yes I did. All I can say is that the 40285 is in it's third truck now. One (N/A) died from block worm, one (Banks turbo'd) died from cracked block @ block heater and now the IDIT. I did NOT like the 40285, solo, on my IDIT. When pulling (10 or 11k) I ran out of fuel at the top (+3k RPM). So...

    Electric fuel pump wont push gas unless engine cranking?

    This is a 40285 & 40290 in parallel. The set up has worked nicely for me ('93 IDIT). My favorite part is the redundancy. The truck runs fine on either pump, better on both. I believe that some (most) of the reported Facet failure is due to "knock-offs" being distributed/sold by bad actors. I...

    Safari TSR Blues

    Yes. I was disappointed in wear pattern. I "flipped" those damned things (inboard to outboard on the wheels) at every other rotation to get 25k out of them.

    Safari TSR Blues

    Yes sir ... both Kelly Springfield tires. The GYs seem more stable and, as you pointed out, the tread pattern is different / less noisy that the Safari.

    That's how you know they're workin'!

    Safari TSR Blues

    I'm running Goodyear Wranglers 315s. I ran Safari before ... GYs are nice and (relatively) quite, ride is good and traction is great.

    That #$%^ serpentine belt chirp again!

    I fixed the chirp by cleaning the pulleys with brake cleaner and a wire brush.
