I liked it, but I agree with the deacon, there is a time and place for that
stuff, and this is not that place.

Well as most of you know by my byline, I own a 73 F-250 Ranger Xlt Camper
Special. Well I now have a 74 F-350 Ranger XLT Super Camper Special.

It all started yesterday with one of our work trucks. My brother was driving
the 73 F-350 tank truck when, while rolling to a stop, the rear axel split
right through the pumpkin. And were talkin Dana 70 here folks! Well after
towing it to the shop, we decided we needed to find an axle REAL quick. A
search through the paper revealed a 74 F-350 with fuel problems for 1000
dollars. We went over to see it and low and behold, Its a 74 F-350 Ranger XLT
Super Camper Special, with p/s, p/b, a/c a factory 460/auto, and this
beautiful truck(one dent on the passenger side of the bed) only has 79,000
miles on it. We've already know what the problem is, and plan on driving that
thing home today. After dad takes the axle out to fix the tank truck, I'm
gonna though the 60 from my truck underneath it, and away I go. Only hard part
is gonna be welding on th new spring perches as the 250 and 350 have different
frame widths. As for my 250, Were gonna take the parts we need, and sell the
rest.As soon as I'm done I'll post what I have for sale, as it is all Rust
Free desert truck.

Okay, I realise I spend a lot more time on the other lists, but I
have to agree with some of you that the Henry Ford joke was out of line.
Try to remember this IS a family oriented web site. We don't want the
women who enjoy this site feeling alienated, and we don't want our kids
telling jokes like that, okay?

Quick question for you guys- I noticed most of you saying that if I
want to put a 460 in a 78 truck that use to have a 351m in it, I
needed special motor mounts from L&L for about a hundred bucks- Are
the stancions different on this truck you are talking about (the
'74CS) or could I just go to the local autoparts and ask for the
mounts from a '74 460 and drop them in my '78 to save a couple bucks?

Thanks

I'm reading my trusty Ford Pickup Color histroy and I came across a
paragraph on trim options(First paragraph page 99) talking about Ranger XLT
and Explorer packages.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me what each package offered? or just
one..

Thanks a bunch

Robert

well I don't know the exact years they used these options but I know that
Explorer started in 72' and Ranger in 70' or so so from 70' to 77'.

Thanks.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Insurance.

Can anyone recommend an insurance company for coverage on my '66 4x4? It is an
on-going restoration project, mostly stock, seldom driven, garage kept. My
regular insurance co doesn't like "antiques" and charges an arm & a leg for
regular insurance!
