2004 Ford E-350 Series Van 400-series Lighthead Housing Installation Guide

March 25th, 2009 · No Comments

Installation:
1. Following the vehicle manufacturers instructions, remove the radiator shroud, grill, headlights and turn signals. Then remove the plastic substructure that they are mounted to (Fig. 1).
2. While holding the housing (without lighthead) in the exact mounting location, mark the location of the two mounting holes onto the mounting surface. There is a small notch cut into the inside of the two screw bosses on the housing. Use the notch as a guide, make your mark, then (with the housing removed) measure and make the mounting holes 5-3/8” apart (Figs. 2 & 3). NOTE: Depending on what lighthead you are using with this housing, you will need to drill a wire hole. Refer to the lighthead manual for the size and location.

Fords and stock watering point

March 8th, 2009 · No Comments

Two new fords and a stock watering point were creat-
ed in the restored reach of the river downstream of Coleshill mill. Upstream of the mill two new fords were created (see Part 1, figs. 1.1.1 – 1.1.2). Each ford enables livestock to cross the river easily, as well as doubling as a drinking place. Those upstream of the mill are also used by farm vehicles and those downstream form part of an equestrian trail. Although all are similar in concept the configuration of each is significantly different to take advantage of local topography.
