    Hello SubFord (Bill)
    I was referred to you from Richard (RLS7201) over at 460ford.com. I'm looking for wiring diagram(s) for a 1994 F53 chassis. I'm looking to buy one from a guy who claims he drove it to his home, then 2 weeks later it would not start, but would crank. I'm a decent troubleshooter but have no experience with this particular chassis. Thanks, Bill (v8steel)

    Hi subford,
    Hi subford,
    You helped me when I had the F53 apart. Many thanks. Trouble with my speed control on 1993 460V8 was brake on off switch. Took it apart on dining room table...had a glob of weld attached to one of the copper contacts inside..put it together after chipping weld off...voila! Cruise control !!

    Okay I put in the filter and still the same! Just boggs out like its getting flooded or choked. I saw your detailed posts on the thread, thank you! I took screenshots for my own personal records. I was thinking last night that the PCM could just be bad and keeping it stuck in limp mode... Iím Going to replace the map sensor and possibly the fuel pressure regulator

    You’re the best! I’m sure you’ve heard that before! The previous people definitely took out the filter in put in that pump right in its place. Hopefully adding a new filter back in fixes my issues (at least the fuel related ones).

    Hey Sir, quick question; where is the fuel filter on this Rambler 36ft f53? It appears the “in-line pump” that got put in was maybe in the exact spot the filter was??? I don’t see a filter anywhere else...

    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 ĺ 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.
