Our parcel arrived today. The radiator hoses look correct at first glance - thanks to Kym for photos and advice to assist us choose. Thanks also to Stewart and Paul for your advice re part numbers.

Costs were;
Lower hose $US19.78
Upper hose $US13.63
Serpentine belt $US32.66
Cam Position Sensor $US15.29
Priority post $US46.36 which delivered in 11 days

Total in Aussie $168.42 plus international transaction fee $4.21.

Bob at powerstrokeshop.com was certainly helpful, and replied to my emails even over the weekend.

We have purchased a 2nd hand Engel as our son borrowed ours and the return path didn't work; we have all sorts of recovery gear and tools in a shelving unit in the back seat area, and a layer of storage on the tray which we will sleep on top of. New sleeping bags on order yet to arrive. Now to try out camping with our F250. Two weeks leave booked late September.

Hi Judy & Jim.
Thankyou for the email, things are progressing here slowly.

Just remind Jim to go steady with that big right foot, lots more horses to tread on results in lots more reaction. I bet he still has a massive smile on his face.

Did I see that you are going to "sleep on top of it" I guess that mean the BT stays home alone? If so beware of mossies, while you are up there.

Maybe? you could email me a copy of your order as I have been lax & not yet got my spares organised. Yea I'm being lazy but I know how efficient you are & you probably still have all those part numbers filed away.
Regards Peter.

Hi Tassie Bushies

Yes, this trip is without the BT. We are still undecided about the Holland Track, as it has parts of very narrow and winding woodlands which could be a problem with the bigger vehicle. I won a weekend at a hotel in Kalgoorlie, so trip is to take advantage of that and tour the Goldfields as we have seen very little of the area apart from the main roads.

We are getting extra leaves in the springs next week before we leave, and the front ones are sagging, and to re-inforce the back ones for towing. The guy says it will also help prevent the 'rolling' that F250s do.

For all interested, parts as shown on the invoice from powerstrokeshop are;

Part number Description
1C3Z*8386*CA W53102HOSE ASY Lower hose
1C2Z*8620*NA W9400CV-BELT Serpentine belt
F7TZ*12K073*B W10202SENSOR - C CPS
XC3Z*8260*DA W52701HOSE ASY Upper hose

Thanks to Kym, who had been swapping photos with powerstrokeshop re the lower radiator hose, I think we have the right parts.

In previous threads, Stewart has given part numbers for other spares he has purchased or priced.

Regards

It pays to check the hoses as I have just returned back from our trip but before I went I check the actual part against the one on the vehicle and low and behold the bottom radiator hose that Wangarra Ford supplied to me back in March for the BT pick up trip was the wrong hose.

So I had been all the way from WA to QLD and return thinking I had the right bottom hose and I didn't. It since has been replaced by Ford for the correct one.

Cheers
Stewart
