    Dang it, that is it.. how silly of me to forget that.. and the flux thingymajig as well..

    Yep you can never be to careful...It's always what you least suspect.

    Here is another helpful troubleshooting trick...

    Take a penny.

    Stick it in the tread of the tire.

    If Lincoln's head isn't entirely visible then you may have just solved your problem.
    I am going to try an threaten it with the BFH pretty quick.. them hammers tend to solve problems quickly... beat the truck to a pulp .. problem solved.
    ;D
    There is little on this earth that is more frustrating than car problems.
    The BFH can usually solve any of life's problems.


    Car problem?

    get out the BFH

    Door creaking?
    get out the BFH
    Wife nagging?
    get out the BFH

    ;D
    Just make sure you have both an S.A.E & a Metric BFH. You never know which one you'll need.

    How old are the plug wires and have you looked at replacing them?
    About 5 days old.. I was convinced it was the wires.. bought a new set Sunday.
    What about the brake fluid...have you checked that out?
    LOL! brake fluid? You can't be serious! One would always check the 710 fluid 1st & the blinker fluid 2nd?
    Muffler bearings, have they been repacked lately?
    I don't think he has. I think he stated he doesn't have a Langstrom 7" Gangley wrench to remove the Finley head bolts.

    Re: A Gearhead question...

    well the only things left are wiring and computer
    :'(

    niether are any fun

    what sux is when you go to all this trouble then find you forgot to plug a connector back together or something stupid.

    since you have an ohm meter i would get a manual , and find the diagnostic proceedure for no spark. been a while since i had to thumb through a manual , since every thing is on computer now (with a very expensive program), but the testing proceedure is in there some where. should be like :

    step 1 probe for ohms between terminal x & y on the blankety sensor:

    if ohms read above x go to step 2 if not goto step bfh



    also be sure double and triple check everything

    Once you tweak one pair of grease nipples, you want to tweak them all.

    That is what I am going to do tomorrow, start checking the wiring throughout the entire truck.. I start to take the manual tonight an look for that very thing.. should be a fun day tomorrow.

    Quick question 4DC... have you ever had a computer code out fine but still have an issue?

    Thanks all for your input into the thread.. even the muffler bearings and blinker fluid ones for humor... somehow I think I will need to tomorrow.

    yeah , mostly on the older computerized cars (pre-96), now the programs are so much smarter.

    Hmmm since it is a 93 that may be the case hey.. so alternate way of checking the computer out other than the reader?

    i would go through the manual , it's gonna give you factory specific steps for diagnostics. look under trouble shooting.

    make sure its like a chiltons or a haynes manual , if not a factory repair manual . im not talking about the manul that tells you how to check you oil. ummm "repair manual " i guess would be the way to put it , they were like $20 (when i was buying them)
