Re: RECALL Ford Ambos 09-16

PSA - not a recall as far as I know... but perhaps should be. The front ebrake cable on my ‘97 E350 snapped when I parked in the driveway. It appears the pedal assembly design creates a stress point about 5” from the end. The cable appeared to be in good shape... till it wasn’t. 250k miles and 22 y...

Re: Well I am committed now!

2003, 32k miles, and 1520 hours... what a find.

How do you find the 158" wheelbase? Mine is 138" and I love the way it get's around.

Re: 97 Crestline's Slow camper build

I have found the hitch will drag getting into steep driveways... not ideal, but there’s usually a different angle to take them to avoid the problem. With the new batteries and a dedicated circuit, I can now run the freezer for at least a couple days (& nights) without running low on power. Once ...

Re: Quality Ranking

Crestline builds a very solid ambulance. They claim, for what it’s worth, they build the safest and most fuel efficient rigs. For decades, they were the only ones paramedics in Canada would touch. They are built by paramedics for paramedics... not by some draftsman or beancounter who hasn’t lived in...

Recall Checks etc.

On Ford’s website, you can search the vin of your Ford for outstanding recalls. I found a couple for my ‘97... CPS and a sensor on the master cylinder. A good way to get free parts installed.

Re: 97 Crestline's Slow camper build

Finally installed the Class V service hitch. There’s still 12-13” under it, but I can think of a few locations where I’ll be able to scrape it on the road. But it’s about as high as I can get it with the ambulance bumper in place. It’s rated for 16k and the 2” receiver is rated for only 7500. I don’...
