The "yoke" is the pinion shaft which is the pinion gear which can't be
replaced without the ring gear on the 9". The seal rides on the shaft no the
yoke doesn't it?

Speaking of which.......when I rev my 351M in second and third (4 spd) it
rattles pretty loud at what I consider pretty moderate, low pressure (no load)
rpms but when all the way to the floor the rattle is either drowned by the
aircleaner noise or goes away. I thought it might be the clutch or input shaft
or gears in the tranny but the new tranny had very smooth bearings and tight
shafts, new pilot beaing and clutch etc.. It seems to be coming from the
engine itself. Almost souunds like valve train noise but really rattly, loose
sounding like it's not good but I can floor it and it goes as far as I have nerve
and is sitll holding together so I'm sort of thinking it's just a noisy engine
design??

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Saturday?

Where the heck is every body? Oh, it's only 07:25 am. Ok so you guys all
stayed up late last night talking on the internet and can't get up early today
right?

I changed the valve cover gaskets the other day and had to take a couple of
wires off the plugs to get the passenger side one off. When I put it back on I
hooked them up as I remembered them but managed to get them in the
wrong place. Half way to work I finally stopped to check the choke which
was fine but didn't bother to try reversing the wires so it ran rough all the way
to work. After work I switched the offending wires and amazingly enough I
have a smooth running engine now and it doesn't leak any more, at least on
top :-) So much for knowing everything :-)

When I did the tranny I had to remove the seat and pull the carpet up.
MAN! was that rotten stuff and dusty! Floor looks easily repairable so that's
next on my list I think. Guess I better see if JC has the floor pans for the
bronco too eh? Just looked it up......$37.95 for each half.....COOL! Upper
rear wheel arch.....$24.95.....COOL! This looks like it will be a pieceacake :-)

I ordered the door and window seals from JC Whittney. With any luck, their
computers won't be down this time and I'll actually get my order by
Thanksgiving so I can put it all together.

I'm sorry I thought it was a Dana 60 for some reason. I have not had a 9"

I hate it when someone says he's sorry.........now I may have made a mistake
so maybe I should be sorry since now that you mention it I don't recall
reading what kind it was?? As I recall the dana 44 yoke does work in the seal
as you said but, again if I recall the yoke on the 9" is outside of the seal but
that may not be correct either so why did I even open my mouth.....er
fingers??

I've got a '71 F100 4x4, 4 Speed with a 390 out of a '72.
When I bought it the engine was blown and the differentials didn't
match. I got the engine taken care of but I am in need of a manual to
guide me thru the differentials. I have a Chiltons, but there is not
enough info to give me the confidence to open up the Dana 44.

Any Suggestions?????

Dana 44 is all about shims, no preloads or crush sleeves. The process is
fairly straight forward but you have to have some precision equipment: dial
indicator, mag base, and surface gauge among others. You can probably go
to the library and get a motor's or helms shop manual which will give you all
the torques and measurments etc..

The basic stuff is to get the pinion depth as accurately as you can, plus or
minus the value stamped on the end of the pinion gear and then set the back
lash all of which is done with shims and dial indicator using certain gauge
blocks etc.. If you are not experienced with tools or indicators you might do
better to have someone experienced work with you or pay someone to do it
for you. The ford service manual has a very detailed and easy to follow
description of the process for both the dana and the 9".

From: ballingr ldd.net (William L. Ballinger)
Subject: FTE 61-79 - 390/410 Help

A 390 piston in a 410 would go above .000 deck. in a 410 and hit the
head. A 410 piston in a 390 wouldn't make much compression. All 390,
410, 427, and 428's use the same 6.488 rod length. The 352 and 360 use
a skinny 6.548 rod, a .060 difference in length. The 360 uses the same
flat top w/eyebrows piston as a regular fuel 9.5 to 1 390, and loses
appeox 3/4 point of compression, unless you use a thinner head gasket or
mill the heads.

So lets recap here. All FE blocks have the same deck height. Piston pin
bore location is the same for all engines but the 410/428's which have
the bore located .100 higher. All FE rods but the 352 and 360 are the
same length at 6.488 inches.

- -> Let me get this straight. Even though the bore is the same as the
390

true

Hi,
Why not buy the Ford Shop Manuals? They are only about $60-70.
You may find a used copy at the neighborhood swapmeet or order from
Helms. I can't remember the number but your local Ford dealer parts
Guy should know.

The vote for splitting the 61-79 list into two groups has expired.
The split won by 1 vote. However, this is too close (1%) for me
to justify splitting it up. If we can get 4-5% in a future vote,
I'll split the list. Personally I'm in favor of splitting it now,....
