Had a nice list of on-the-road chores to attend to today. First on the list:
So I'm really gonna get some stuff done today, jump in the '94 Tbird LX V8,
turn the key and ... it does about 1/2 of a crank rev and dies a horrible
7 year old battery is presumed dead, kaput, pues muerta. I put it on
a trickle charger anyway.
Does anybody know:
Does Johnson Controls still make a good battery for Motorcraft?
Does Johnson Controls still make a good battery for Sears Diehard?
I'll likely have to lug a new battery home and install myself.
The ECM will reset to default (factory) settings? Any particular
worry about re-establishing the kinds of settings needed? 'Boid
had 65k mi. and was running OK.

Ain't neither one goin' my way.

the other run just before day."
