Heater-A/C Fan has had two speeds for a while now.
Decided to replace the resistor pack.
Cut off the OEM connector, crimped and soldered wire lugs on the wires and soldered the lugs to the pins in the heater sided the connector.
Tested, had different speeds but could not tell if there were four or not.
Shrunk the heat shrink and got it all back together and now I have one speed, high !
WTF - what did I do wrong, did burn up the new resistor pack while soldering or heat shrinking ... .

Need to get a write up started in one of the tech forums.

I don't really care about money. If I did, my truck would still be stock like yours.

Put new plugs (Autolite A104's @ 0.050), wires (8mm Autolite Proffesional), and air filter (Premium Purolator)... Seems to idle better, start quicker, and runs better in the lower rpms then before.

I can't post a screenshot of me ordering wheels cause i called the place locally. I'm gonna have a bunch of time off soon here. So i'm hoping next paycheck i'll be able to get my tires and get to work. I'm not starting this until i've got everything, cause i hate half done stuff.

Ordered fog lights and new valance, hope to have everything by next weekend so I can install it on my next days off. All I need to complete the swap is 1 pigtail, bezel and relays are already installed.

Yesterday I put a new exhaust donut on it. Now I'm not as worried about my exhaust falling off going down the road.

I like those! Look like my Level 8 Tracker. And there is no chance of your center cap rattling like mine...

Finally installed fog lights, been wanting to do this for over a year. Decided to order everything on Monday and picked up the last of the parts this morning. All parts are Ford, no aftermarket was used. 1 fog light is new, valance is new and 1 fog light is used but looks new.


Before




After--big improvement IMO
