You couldn't be more right. There are alot more replacement parts sold
in this country than there need to be because people throw parts at a
problem. Finding where continuity is lost is the first step, replacing
the wire, connector, or electronic unit at fault is the last. Up to
date information and the proper diagnostic tools are the key to success
here. Then you can put the hood down and go on a trip knowing that you
fixed it.

Another source for new ones of these 'rating plates', as they call them,
is Sacramento Vintage Ford; 1-888-FORD-100. At this time, they list
them for '53-'56 and '66 pickups only. At time of ordering, they'll
send you a form to complete and they require 'backup copies of
documents' with your order. They reverse-stamp them, like the
originals, and they're $75.

When doing my swap to a dana 44 front with discs instead of my drum

beefier....ANybody?

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Wiring Diagram 74 F100

Is there anyone out there that has a wiring diagram for 74 f100 that
they can email to me (claassdj intekom.co.za). Also has anyone ever
replaced the rear drums with disc brakes, if so please tell me how you
went about it I would like to do this. My F100 still has the 300 I6 in
and was wonder what carb would work better than the YFA 1V Carter that
is in it now.
Thanks

Subject: FTE 61-79 - York Compressor Mount

Dayton B. asked about a compressor mount for a 460 out of a Lincoln that he
put in his '78. I am in the process of collecting the parts for a similar
swap, a 72 Lincoln 460 into my 71 F-100. The Lincoln also had the round
compressor and I wanted to keep the York that is on my FE. I was at the
recycle yard a month or so back and found a 78 or 79 Camper Special with a
460 and got all the brackets, A/C for York compressor, power steering, and
motor mounts. I went out back to my parts pile after reading this post and
found the A/C bracket off the 460, for a York compressor. The part number
on the bracket looks like DOAA-2882-8. I hope this helps...Don W.

I didn't get the PS pump and I don't remember where it went. The York
compressor sat on its side in front of the...er...left hand head I
believe, on the driver's side that is. I assume this would rule it out
as an air pump mounting but for AC it should be fine.

Im not sure that the part number helps as mush as the type of truck you got
it off of, either way though, thanks! I'll get to a bigger (mostly ford)
salvage yard and take a looksie, thanks alot!!!

On my 77 F-150 the brake warning light is not coming on.
I have checked the film, sockets, bulbs, and wiring (6 in. down the harness)
and everything is O.K.
Any ideas?
