Re: Meet up in Colorado anyone?

My dad and I were planning to take my trailer to Colorado in August, to see the Durango and Silverton Railroad. Unfortunately, the wildfires have put the kibosh on that plan. :( So, instead, we're heading north to Detroit, Mackinac, Green Bay, etc. I am very bummed that I missed a chance to catch u...

He's welcome here. There will be limitations in our knowledge of course, but a lot of our collective knowledge will apply to that van, too.

Re: Buying it back...

Good luck. Check the voltage to the pump also and have someone mess with the switch at the same time. It may be making good contact. One sign of that is fuel gauge acting funny. Turns out my brother happens to be an expert on the 460s with the dual fuel tanks. I figured he'd worked on them from tim...

Re: Battery question

I split this out into a separate topic, since it wasn't related to the restoration of my B190.

Re: Buying it back...

Ah. Just now it’s at 58 and 26. That’s not so good. This is basically worst case - hot day, sun beating on that side of the camper, and the coil fan is off.

Re: Buying it back...

Awww, yes! Fridge and freezer temperatures. I’d say the fridge works well! (Thermostat on Max setting.)

Good idea. The fuel gauge hasn’t worked in years, though. But I will check voltage.

And a pump on the line.


Since it’s doing it with both tanks, would that imply the line pump is going?

Re: Buying it back...

I finally got to spend some quality time with the B190 today! Plumbing - I’ve replaced the section of pipe with the leak. Windshield wipers - replaced. Oil leak - fixed, apparently. It’s not dripping any more - all I really did was run a tap through the threads and make sure it was tight tight tight...

Re: The 1992 B190 in my driveway.

Nice looking rig. I'm curious about the black... not sure what to call them, "patches" at the bottom corners of the upper front window and the black strip that runs the length of the van below the upper windows. Decoration, or are they serving a purpose? How did I miss those? I think I wa...

Just bought a B190...now what?

So you just bought a B190 and are wondering what you should do now? This thread is intended to help answer that question! First, check for open recalls from Ford! Safety first. You'll need the chassis VIN (visible under the windshield). Second, check your tire age! Even if the tread is good, the tir...

Re: Questions On Cruise Control on a 1996

Oh, Ford did issue a recall to fix the speed control issue you mentioned. You can check if your van is on the list by going here: https://owner.ford.com/tools/account/maintenance/recalls.html They install a jumper wire harness to correct the problem. Your van may already have one. I checked mine bu...

Re: Questions On Cruise Control on a 1996

They didn’t start requiring cruise control indicator lights until after 1999 - my 1999 car doesn’t have one, but the 2000 and beyond versions of my car do. So it doesn’t surprise me that even a later model B190 wouldn’t have them either. There could be several things wrong, some of which you already...
