Alas, I have a trip to Wyoming and then Missouri I have to save for, and they're both way more important to me than even a truckload of chili Mac...

He also has an 1987 f150. It needs a little work, but still runs pretty good.

I will admit though that the jackass who decided to make the spark plugs on the later f150s (1999) so hard to get to needs to be flogged.

You have to basically take off part of the top of the engine to get to them.
Sounds like the Chevy Monza with the 350 in it, had to unbolt the engine from the motor mounts, then you had to jack up the engine to get to the rearmost spark plugs.

I'm afraid to read the rest of this thread... Most of the names for the "meals" are only allowed to be spoken in the Bunker...

Best description I've ever heard is: MRE (Meal Ready to Eat), three lies in one.

Edit: Actually some of them are pretty good. I think one entire MRE is something like 2000-3000 calories. A bit much for us sedentary civilians!

There WAS a Chevy Monza that to change 2 plugs, you had to unbolt motor mounts, and jack up the engine. There was not enough clearance between the block and the fender for a spark plug to be inserted.

Sheer genius, that.
