    I'm rather amazed at all the good advice I've received on this. I was in the process of doing an ignition tune up (plugs,plug wires,distributor cap, and rotor) when I first posted here. The plugs were worn, but dry; the cap and rotor showed obvious signs of wear, but I can't tell if there's any...

    It's obvious that you spent a good amount of time on my problem. I'd be happy to buy you a beer or three. As messed up as the world is at times it's good to know there are still a few decent guys out there, willing to help out for little or no monetary gain. I'm a retired machinist, living on...

    Thanks for advice. I can check continuity and reference voltages after looking for obvious problems at PCM. Never worked from a flow chart though. I'll bet they make troubleshooting easier. Could you post them?

    I will scan for codes today. Now that you mention it, the check engine light has been on and off lately.

    1989 F 150 clutch problem

    I'm not sure where the slave is. Thought it was inside the bellhousing. Is there a reservoir someplace where I can check it?

    1989 F 150 clutch problem

    I already did that a few times, but I'm afraid you're right. Going to have to pull tranny and do a thorough inspection/cleaning. Grr! Hopefully the clutch parts aren't ruined by rodent urine.

    fuel line connection stripped

    billr, your advice sounds reasonable. It IS the alum TB with iffy threads, and so it would be real easy to mess up what threads are in there with a tap. Now that I know there's a gasket in there, I'll just carefully "find" the original threads with the adapter, and if I can't get enough torque...

    Thanks to all who helped. EricC you had the exact diagram I needed. There is an o-ring on one end, and also a gasket on the other end of this fitting. Now I know what I'm dealing with. I'll remove the TB and run a tap in the threads, then get new gasket and o-ring. Thanks a lot.

    The damaged threads are the female in the TB. Aluminum threads with a steel line fitting. Understandably the aluminum was damaged. I can't get pics until upcoming weekend when I go over there again. Thanks for your attention thus far. I'm an older guy, but a noob here.
