Re: Bought a B190 yesterday... a few easy/basic questions:

That brand of guillotine switch sucks! I had nothing but problems with the one in my B. It had poor contact at times and almost replaced a good battery for nothing. Pit some foil on the lever for a temporary fix but we use our B almost every weekend so I just ditched it. 12V works every time now. Ei...

Re: Universal joints or ?/ 4EOD

I hate to say this but is sounds like a transmission may be in your b's future. If you do a lot of traveling I would buy a reman with a good nation wide warranty.

Re: Universal joints or ?/ 4EOD

Any particular gear? Road speed? Besides U-joints, did the shop do ANY other service? What I am getting at is did the shop service the transmission and mask converter shutter or possibly use cheep u-joints and you need to replace them again. I only use Spicer non-serviceable u-joints.

Re: New Owners--need some help

The hot water heater is usually very dependable. I would check the wire connections. Simply unplug and plug them in. A very little corrosion can keep the igniter/flames sensor from working.

Re: Hot water, Cold water

If you don't have the B on city water then I would have to think that the residual pressure and the added pressure of the water being hot is just pushing it out the cold side untill the system pressure is exhausted. The only check valve that I know of is the one in the pump to keep City water from f...

Re: Window glazing gasket

Our hehr windows use two different glazing beads. The one in the pic doesn't look like the right one for the fixed window. I use Interstate RV Metal http://interstatervmetalandsupply.com If you are doing all your windows you will need 21ft of 009-842 for the slider and 009-344 for the fixed window. ...

Re: Miles left until total failure of 4E0D?

You are not too far off the mark. A cylinder missfire can feel and is sometimes mistaken for converter shutter. The converter clutch was changed from 3/4 inch wide to 7/8 before the triton V10 replaced the 460. And all converters rebuilt after 95 had the new clutch. Unless you had a strange hydrolic...

Re: Can't find gas tank float for front has tank

With the tenth diget being an M it is a 91 modle year. I will work some magic tomorrow and give you a part number and brand. Then you will be able to find the correct one. The older Ford fuel pumps and sending units were not sold as assemblys but separatally so the sending units have become scarce.

Re: Gasoline smell

You need to pull the the gen set out of the compartment. Remove the exhaust pipe from underneath. 1/2 in wrench on the clamp and a little wiggling to get it off. I put new retainer bolts on my gen set but it should have 9/16 heads. Remove the bolts also from underneath. You can then slide the genera...

Re: Gasoline smell

I had the same problem Weekender and Tucsonan had. The filler is the big tube and the fill vent tube is the little one. It is very common for the vent tube to crack on the ford vehicles of the era. I don't remember the length but it is 3/4 in. ID fuel safe hose. I spent a little extra and used silic...
