    I agree if you're doing your own work without the manual it's just guessing. There's a ebay guy has complete 3 volume sets of ford manuals on PDF for $10, I got one for my bricknose 91 and another set for '93 |(even tho they're largely the same) and again for the '06, and also came with the engine supplements. As I actually need a section I print the pages out and put them in a binder.

    Did this. I got tired of the post adapters on my group 31 batteries. Now it'll be easy when I go to the IH shop to get new batteries. Image456196920411560387.jpg

    Wife got a chunk of something in a tire so had to push her into daily service for a few days until a tire comes in.

    She could use a little more steam. I’ve never done any tuning at all. It’s always been get it running. Need to do some poking over the winter. Play with the timing a bit. Try retarding it. Need to see if I can find what to me sounds like an exhaust leak that has developed. I sure hope that’s what it is. Other possibilities are not as palatable.

    She needs a cooling system upgrade and a couple other minor things too. Snows about to fly so she’s gonna do a lot of hibernating soon.
