Need to find a diagram or layout of the belt system in a a Ford Econoline 1987 E-350 7.5l Motorhome/RV


have you try ed looking under hood? if not located under hood check door jamb . if that don't reveal anything of help go to a parts store and ask them to print out a diagram. If that don't work find a van the same year as your motor home and most likely the belts will be ran the same way. you may need to go to a junk yard to find it.

Help ! how do i open the stinkin hood ?!? my car is a 1969 ford fairlane


There is a manual lever under the front of the hood just to the left of center as you are facing the car. Move it to the right and the hood should release, then feel for the safety latch and move that. Hood can now be opened.

Hood latch cable fails to release hood when


I would try pushing down and pulling up on the hood while someone operates the hood latch. I'd try to spray some WD-40 between the hood and grill area. From underneath, you may be able to use a long screw driver to try to move the release lever over to release the hood.

Hood latch release inside cable will not realease hood


The cables and latch become dirty and corroded,and the spring wrapped cabbles can even rust on the inside.
The cable itself may have broke.
if you are able you can lay down under the front reach up through the grill and you just have to feel your way take a short screw driver and feel where the cable connects to the latch,use the screwdriver for a lever and pry the latch open.
once it is open have someone pull the release and watch for movement,if it does clean the latch ,spray cable lube into the cable while moving.
then adjust the latch a little,not to much at a time or the hood will be loose.
Of course if there is no movement in the cable it means its broke and will have to be replaced

Econoline hood release not releasing. Latch at front of hood moves just fine. I can pull the hood release under the dash a couple inches, but it is not releasing anything at the hood end. What can I do to...


first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.
