    Hanky -I changed out the autolite (New ) plugs with motorcraft..(.Major difference).At 35 MPH and up-there is a slight stumble if you take your foot off the gas pedal -..nearly to idle position..slight..nothing like before plugs were changed...I did find a vacuum line cracked at the air intake box..
    Again-coil-cap-rotor-wires have been changed.. The 4.9 idles and starts perfectly.Just the slight stumble or miss...?

    Thanks 1996 E250 4.9L automatic - 70,000 miles

    Thank you for the advise-The misfire started after I had a water pump replaced-The following day-The van would not start-finally after cranking and cranking it started-sparks jumping off spark plugs to block-rough running.I then replaced the Coil-Cap-Rotor-wires.

    Since then it runs great-except the intermittent misfire.So maybe the autolite plugs..I will give it a try.

    I have a 2017 ford E350 with 5000 miles only ...which had problems with the bearings, spindle caliper and rotor which were all replaced and then never aligned ... now the tires are worn ... my question is should this vehicle have been aligned???
    I would like a honest answer ...
    thank you in advance

    Hanky... You've helped me many times through the years, last time being Nov of 2016. Prevailing of you one more time (at least one more time). When you get a chance, please look at my just entered post in the F150 Forum entitled "1988 F150 Lariat - Idle Problem." Your expertise is greatly appreciated. Thank You. (Joe Reeves)

    I removed the plenum from my 351 to replace the valve pan gaskets when I put it back together when I start it it runs wide open and has a blackish gray smoke coming out of the exhaust

    Hanky I'm a newbe. Have a1997 F-150 5.4 worked fine till I parked it Now it won't start. The fuel punp doesn't appear to be working. Checking fuses all good. Checking relays I could hear them click, but no power to the pump. Checked the horn it clicked no horn activation. Same with the PCM relay. The power to the fuse relay box was 12 volts. Any common thread?

    Hi hanky,its been almost a year since we visited about my 7200vv carburetor.Would like to know if you have any info on how to convert to a 2150 carburetor and the Duraspark 2 system instead of the 3 series,ive been told to install new distributor and the blue grommet ignition module.That all sounds easy but nobody seems to know what wiring changes need to be made,they just say you'll figure it out.Personally I'm not rich and am tired of trying to figure things out on this truck but I love it and think that converting it to what an 82 had in term's of setup would be a good and lasting choice. Thanks Randy and hope you're doing well.
