    I found out thru another website (THT) that the 2004 and 2005 F150s need a mod to prevent hard starting when motor is hot. It takes about 1 sec to start instead of a 1/2 turn. I did not even know that this was a problem considering how hard my old 2S was to start. Anyway called Boat Depot where I bought my motor and asked them how come they did not tell me about this mod when my motor was in for service 3 weeks ago. He said they have so many motors it's hard to keep track of the mods. Pretty bogus answer in my opinion. If fact I'm pissed at them cuz its a real pain to go get my trailer, run my moored boat up to it and then take it to Boat Depot and then the reverse. Got a date of 10/25 to get it done.

    It's a different mod for 04 and the 05's. You'll need your Primary ID# off your warranty card to have the dealer find out what mod your F150 requires. The mod is already installed on 06's.
