lots of responses

chrome "powered by ford " valve covers started in 67 and ended i think when
the fe was deleted from the mustang and fairlane line "70"
they were available in most 390 powered cars mustang and fairlane of those
years.
probably in cougars and comets too. they came on some cobra jet cars mostly in
"68". a nice set without dents and decent chrome will be around 100 at a swap
meet.dealers in hemmings are more. be careful to look at them carefully as
they are pretty well used.
you might think about getting yours rechromed, if you can afford to have your
vehicle down. also, those valve covers came painted blue on most all fe's in
trucks and cars
through the years above. those probably didn't have the rough use of the ones
in the mustangs and fairlanes , you could have them chromed.
for the gentleman with the 60 over "nice block" i have a steel fe crank with
cracks in all the journals that would make a nice match for your block.
on the 62 fe swap. i would think if someone makes adapters for the side frame
mounts i'd use those. i wouldn't use a front mounting system. be prepared to
"fix" the purchased mounts as most items today don't always work the way they
are supposed to. but they would get you close.
on the clutch linkage,, if you have some in the truck try to use it probably
will need to be modified . alternatives: hydralic "sp" i used one in a 53
ford with an olds engine when i was a kid. also, you could use a cable
setup.lots of design and fabrication.
kind of long winded sorry

I had a set of the Power By Ford valve covers on my 71 F-100 that were
stock, just a little more info to let you know they were discontinued with
the FE blocks in 1976.

From: Ken Payne
Subject: FTE 61-79 - ADMIN: Email addresses

Hello Ford Truck Enthusiasts list members!

In late July, Ford Truck Enthusiasts offered email addresses to
list members for a low fee in order to ease the financial burden
FTE has on my family (loss of several thousand per year, which
could be better spent on a college fund for my two children).

We asked for a commitment from at least 20 people to buy email
addresses. Due to failure to pay for the service by nearly 40%
of the people who ordered it, the email service has increased
the financial impact on my family, rather than help it. FTE is
now obligated to our hosting company to pay for the email service.

If you would like to purchase an email address for 6 months or
1 year in the form of yourname ford-trucks.com, we would appreciate
it. You can use the address for any personal email, not just
list email. Not only will it help us, it also shows your Ford
truck pride to everyone you email.

FTE email addresses are compatible with just about every browser
and email package there is (for techies, it uses SMTP/POP3). You
can use it from most any internet provider.

The cost?
Personal Use
============
- Total of $20 for 6 months.
- Total of $30 for 12 months.
- Additional addresses are $14.50/6 months and $26.50/12 months.

(For those who remember the last email about this, I simply rolled
the setup costs into the payment).

Existing Ford truck clubs
=========================
- One address for free so long as it is used for club
purposes only and is not used in conjunction with mailing
lists (except ours). Using it for club announcements and
communications with club members is allowable if the volume
is kept to a reasonable amount.

Please email me at kpayne mindspring.com if you're interested.
Include 3 email addresses (in case your first choice is taken) and
a notice that you want 6 or 12 months. Additionally, send the
password you would like to use with the account. Addresses must
start with a letter and contain only letters, dashes or numbers.
Your account will be set up with 48 hours of receipt of your email.
You'll have 2 weeks days after your invoice is emailed to send
payment.

Please think about what FTE has offered you and remember that
although we stand by our promise to keep FTE's mailing lists free,
they aren't free for the Payne family.

Regards,
Ken Payne

From: Garry Bowling
Subject: FTE 61-79 - Wiring Problem help

Help is needed.
While driving my truck (67 F100) yesterday all was fine. I was in
Pigeon Forge TN and headed to my parents cabin to do some work. While
setting in traffic (Which was terrible), I left PF and headed up the
parkway after setting at a red light for a while. Truck was fine then
all of a sudden it seemed to loose power then it would come back sorta
like vapor lock but it never quit running. However, all of a sudden I
lost all ignition sense power ie. turn signals, radio and A/C. Power
works everywhere else. Has anyone ever had this problem and is it
possible the loosing power sympton are related?. I lost the accessory
power immediately after that. I checked the fuse block with a meter and
there is power to every fuse except the accessory fuse and the two spare
lugs.

Could this problem be in the ignition switch? It is a new switch and
was replaced when the truck was restored.

Could there be another wiring problem from the starter solenoid?

Any help would greatly be appreciated.
