OK, I am not the only odd person in my family. My brother is putting an Ecoboost from an F150 into a Ford LCF. This stands for Low Cab Forward. It is basically a small cab over design that they only made a few years. He is having a difficult time of it. He originally got the engine, instrument cluster, and harness, but it turns out that is not enough. There are quite a few electronic modules that he needs as well. One is the body control module. I had a difficult time trying to figure out what that would do. I was quite surprised to hear that this is basically the network switch, and power supply for the high, and medium speed networks. It is actually the steering column that he needs. Specifically the key. Wont run without it.
He is struggling to get through the 7000+ pages of the manual. Two Fridays ago, around the camp fire, he read me the part that describes the optional trailer brake controller. It uses the yawl sensor, and the steering wheel sensor to determine if the trailer is swaying, then it automatically applies just the trailer brakes
. Wow. I think that in a few years, (maybe 5) I will have to get an Escape
with the Ecoboost and the towing package, and optional trailer brake control.
