|Del||In comparison, what kinds of problems does your wife's horses have? Is there a horse BB that she can post in, lol? Any Italian horses by any chance, hmmm?|

"The 164LS trip home went from absolute heaven to Oh Crap! about 120 mile from home. Some wag suggested that I should have bought a 1,000 mile car instead of one rated for 850 miles. SMH. You can see a thread on dumping bad gas in the 164 production forum"
You still haven't done the 5 minute simple checks? You are badmouthing the car before doing these checks, lol, wink, wink. Do them and let us know what you find. The last guy (Richard Bradford) in the BB with a similar problem found that the multiwire connector to the AFM was loose or dirty. Simple fix.
We all hope that it is indeed a simple problem. Good luck.

Truer words have never been spoken...I often say that my ratchets work much better counterclockwise than they do clockwise...

|horsewidower||Thanks, however, they are no longer out. Next time I pull them I'll get that done.|

|Mark_toro||While you have these out, I'd recommend making a notch on the parking brake arms about 1/8" further from the pivot than the current. You can relocate the spring to the new notch. This helps provide a bit addition release torque to minimize sticking of the parking brake. I have not seen any adverse effects from this modification.|

Thanks, guys. This is like most things, the first attempt is fraught with ignorance, it’s easy after that.

And we're off and running again...
Well, getting back to this after a few days off. Had to deal with some medical things, and finally gave in and decided to take the F350 diesel dually to someone who knows what they are doing. My tools and patience just aren't up to the task.
So, to kick us off again, here are some pictures of rebuilding the calipers, c-clamps are an important tool for the work, as I couldn't get the pistons to retract without some pressure as well as needing them to push the spring down in order to properly install the c-clip. Make certain that you have put the little push rod in correctly or you can't get the assembly back in, you have to measure to make sure it's properly seated. I had to use grease to hold the pushrod in the adjustment screw, dropping it in and hoping you have it properly seated in the adjustment screw failed time after time:
