    Hi Subford

    94' 37ft bounder f53 ford 460

    I am having fuel pressure problems. New fuel pump assembly (not just pump), fuel filter, Fuel pressure regulator, plugs, wires, rotor, coil, throttle position sensor, and water temp sensor (on top of the block). I have deleted and blocked off EGR. Disconnected and block the gas vapor vacuum.
    At idle I get 32-35psi at the fuel rail at idle and can go WOT in park and get about 40 psi.

    I start to drive and she goes great for about 10 minutes. Responsive all the way through the throttle from top to floor then at some point she will bog down and fuel pressure drops. Last night went down to 10 psi. I will also get a backfire. At this point I have to feather the throttle to get any acceleration. If I turn off then back on she is good for another few minutes.

    Cool temps in the 50’s-60’s and about tank.

    Thank you

    Hi Subford,

    I just bought a major project. 95 santara class a with a side out. I cant get anything to work. I am just getting into it and need help on the 12v aux side of things. Everything was disconnected. I was wondering and I am willing to pay you. If you would take some photos of the storage bays where your 12v system and side out pump and converter systems are? You can text me at 760-333-8368

    Hi I would love to get some info from you. I have a friend with a 98 Newmar V8 with 80K miles on it. It is a very nice coach but lacking on power going up hills and drops down into the 30s mph. We thought about the 5 star tune but he has an OBD1. What .can he do to increase power without losing much MPG. Thks

    Hello subford. ga traveler suggest I contact you for advive. My cel flickers twice on startup and engine looses fire at that time but keeps running. Does this hot r cold. I have a post in the ford chassis forum under - check engine light blinks. Does my 06 f53 HR Admiral have a replay somewhere that will cause this? Get no codes. Ignition switch gave me trouble 4 years ago but none since. I have 30 years mechanic exp in over the road commercial vehicles but this has me stumped. Any help is appreciated.

    Hi Bill,

    I just looked at your profile and find that we are almost neighbors and drive the same old iron. 95 F53 Bounder for me, in Gladstone, MO. I worked as a mechanic in my younger days and am fairly knowledgeable of the 460 F53s. I just ordered a 521 stroker to replace my tired 460. I would love to talk shop with you some day.
    The reason I write is to invite you to come visit with the FMCA Midwest Prairie Schooners. We are based in the Kansas City metro area and have been a chapter for over 35 years. I have included a link to our chapter web page for your viewing.
    If you would like to attend one of our rallies please contact me via email or phone.

    I'm a single traveler and HAVE to find the location of the thermostat sensor or temp sender switch in my 1989 Safari. 460 Ford engine. Temp gauge is after market, pretty new. The lights go on but it just stopped registering temp! HELP! I think that one wire that hooks that part up must have shook loose. Where the heck is it in a Ford 460 1989???? I don't do well finding things in irv2 so my email is demeade@gmail.com Thanks Diane

    I saw in one of your posts that you've put a TC lock-up switch on your E4OD. I tried to find more info but haven't been successful. Could you point me to the right posts?

    I enjoy your very informative posts. You've been more help than you know.

    hello again this is Bob, I have a question, The ac/heater on the dash fan controller only works on high speed. Can I replace the resistor or do I have to replace the unit? where would I find either part. We just love our motorhome. Just got back from Oregon 1,700 mile round trip with no problems what so ever.

    thanks for the quick response. Where are these brushes you mentioned? Are they hard to clean? How do you go about it?, I will ground the pink wire thanks for that info. I guess the odometer is just not going to work. The speedometer and the transmission are fine.
