CalCruiser: really interested in the one piece Lloyd Rubbertight mat that you ordered for a E350SD with storage console. I can't seem to find any info on their site, where'd you order them from? DW really wants more console space.

thanks

Hi All,

Our wooden board flip-up counter by the entry door is still in good condition, but Irene always gives me grief over placing hot items on it and water when I do the dishes.  I am thinking of ordering a Corian flip-up counter.  To you who have them, would you please post pictures of yours?  I wonder about the material thickness, the finished edging, and how it attaches to the hinges from behind.

I know you are seeking floormats for dirt protection, but for those who want original Ford carpeted mats that match their Ford interior, you can buy them on line, Ebay being one of them.  HERE is one example.  Many years ago I bought a set like these for our 2007 PC.  They work well for our particular traveling style.

I recall spending a lot less, like around $30 with shipping included.  Just keep a watch for them as they come up for sale.

The catalogues may not list any applications beyond 2014 because Ford discontinued the E- series vans but continues to produce the  commercial E350SD and E450 cutaway chassis.

I have a one piece Lloyd Rubbertight mat that I ordered for a  E350SD with storage console. It fits well, looks nice , traps water, and is easy to remove and rinse off.

I think this is what I am looking for my 2017 E-450SD.  Assume consoles are same size and shape.  Is the cutaway the same as Econoline cab layout?  I really want to cover the area between seats.

Some time ago I found a Ford Media Relations pdf that described it but can't find it now.  However, do a search on the transmission with variations of "6-speed" or "6 gears" and you'll find info.  

Here's some from Wikipedia's page on the Super Duty: "The TorqShift design in fact has six forward ratios, but only five are advertised, with the 'hidden' gear only used in extreme cold weather. The TorqShift 1st to 5th gear ratios are 3.11, 2.22, 1.55, 1.00, and 0.71:1. It also utilizes an alternate 4th gear, overdrive on 2nd gear of the 3-speed automatic component (0.72 x 1.55), that is 1.10:1 that is used under cold start conditions to aid engine and transmission warm up."

Here's some other info from Powerstroke Nation:

First, you need to understand how the TorqShift was built. It is a two speed transmission in front of a three speed transmission.

You can get six ratios by combining the two times three ratios. The problem is that two of the ratios are nearly identical.

The two speed has ratios of 1:1 and 0.71:1.
The three speed has ratios of 3.1:1, 1.54:1, and 1:1.

By combining them you get:
3.1:1
2.2:1
1.54:1
1.09:1
1:1
0.71:1

The 1:1 and 1.09:1 ratios are nearly the same." He also stated this was a more economical design than one with 6 actual gears, but I'm sure part of that also had to do with compatability with other components, with assembly plant components, etc.  Everything's a compromise, of course.

The close ratios of 1.0:1 and about 1.10:1 would allow either to be used depending on temperature and it'd never feel like a gear had been skipped above or below it when upshifting.  One may also feel torque converter lockup to add to the things one would feel while driving.

I have had some of the hook part of the latches break.
My cure was to place small washers under the screws to distribute the load away from the screw hole.
They are ~ 1/8 ID and 3/8 OD.

That makes sense.  Nice tip!

THe vent covers serve a purpose some may not know till they have a vent lid failure. Generally the type of plastic is not suitable for very long in the sun. The sun causes a serious deterioration and breakdown and the lid will break or powder. We asked for MaxxAir covers at Phoenix when we were there picking up our new unit. What I found is some may be some are not. I wanted the Maxx Air since we know the company and in the past have done work for them in Tampa. In any event we did endure a failure in a bathroom vent several years ago before the PC and it allowed road repair fumes to overtake us inside...and the set up in that unit we could have had raindrops on our head while sitting on the potty. The covers no matter what price are a very necessary install. It does prevent water intrusion too and gives the life span of the lid a long time.

Have been looking on-line at vent screens for fridge, water heater and furnace.  Not so impressed with what I have found.  Considering making my own, but would also appreciate advice or experience of others.
