    What other front seats are somehow "Adaptable" for a Ford E series van

    Ford expedition seats, cheap, leather, power, heated, arm rest, correct colors, pockets on the back. Not a direct bolt in, drivers side needs 2 inches sectioned out of the van seat base. Passenger side needs holes redrilled.

    Binky, the '92 7.3l 4x4 Econoline

    I have had the windows out twice, first time the passenger side had a bind, second time the drivers side has a bind. The adjustment in the tracks seems to be a skill I don't have but I'm pretty sure that's the key to getting them to work smoothly.

    Binky, the '92 7.3l 4x4 Econoline

    Two 1/4" rivets hold the glass to the lift mechanism, can get to them with the window about half way down once the door panel is off. Still have to pull the weather stripping out.

    Horton minimod ambulance build thread

    I would think thin gauge aluminum or maybe rivet an additional factory plastic inner fender in as an extension to the existing one.

    YOLANDA...My Turbine Princess build 03 7.3 E350 pop top 4x4

    Do you have more details on the leaf pack change? I have been thinking about doing the same thing for a while but have not gotten around to looking into it.

    7.3 fuel leak...solved

    They plug is too clean to not go to something.... I think white smoke means no fuel, mine did that when the in tank filters plugged up. Part of the reason I tossed the factory system. Could be just me but I could never get the up pipes sealed after removal, new pipes, new seals, still leaked...

    Pics of your Ambulance. Post Up!

    I should edit my response, they ask who the builder was and I said I would get back to them. That was 3 years ago so I think once you get past the initial person filling in the blanks on there screen nobody really cares what it is. I have also not had to use my insurance to prove what exactly...

    Pics of your Ambulance. Post Up!

    Call progressive, they ask for nothing from me and it's insured as a 1998 Ford class b. They also allowed stated value. It did all seem way to easy so I'm not sure my case is normal. It's still registered as a e350 through DMV.

    7.3 fuel leak...solved

    At a loss for what it's called or what it does but there's a line from the exhaust to somewhere around the thermostat, is a hard line that can plug up. Should be easy to get to at this point and make sure it's not getting packed full. Maybe someone else can chime in with more details.

    Adding an intercooler to a 1995 7.3 Diesel Van!

    Make sure to add a pre pump filter/water separator, at that point you can also throw away the in tank fuel pickup Ford used.

    Adding an intercooler to a 1995 7.3 Diesel Van!

    All the good points you made about the fuel system hold true, throw all the factory stuff in the trash. As for the cost mine was under $150 to build, was already a electric pump though. All very cheap stuff at a hydraulic supply shop. Your duel tank system should not know the difference so it...

    7.3 fuel leak...solved

    I think it's technically called a full regulated return system, plenty of info and kits for the trucks, it's just much easier on the van with access to the rear of the engine. Factory is some kind of half return system that they made work by adding a larger injector at the end of the fuel rail.

    7.3 fuel leak...solved

    I made it so I could be off on the name, filter and regulator are mounted on the frame, both fuel rails now exit down the bell housing to the regulator. It fixes the dry injector problem with the factory setup, I think #8.

    7.3 fuel leak...solved

    If it's not too late consider a regulated fuel return, I think mine was around $150 to make. You can run the returns down the bell housing. Could probably dig up some photos of you need. If you have all the old stuff out just look at it for a minute and I'm pretty sure you will agree that it's...
