Well, it's an interesting theory but I since the engine was just rebuilt,
it's highly unlikely. I had the block hot tanked and bored out and a while
later had the heads professionally rebuilt (I wasn't going to tackle that
on my first rebuild!). Plus, the little beads were in the radiator before I
added the anti-freeze. I seem to be getting a little more heat out of it
now so I think what ever was in there has been flushed into the block and
hasn't returned. Over the Christmas holidays I will consider pulling it
into the (unheated) garage and flushing it out. In the meantime, I'll swap
my heater hoses back to the original positions and see what happens.

Question for you guys - why does the interior heater work great with the
hoses connected one way, but not the other? I can never visualize the
physics behind why having the hoses hooked up backwards would make it blow
cooler...

Hey, folks.

I am asking for the big hardware here. I have a friend who just bought a '73 F-600 Dump. He is in the market for a two speed rear end and a power steering unit. He tells me that the engine is a 333. I don't know that one, but I'll look into it further.

We are in Northern Virginia. Any leads within a reasonable distance, give me a shout.

Thanks,

Doss Halsey

First off the engine is 332. I have the same truck, although mine is setup
as a vacuum truck. That is a very good motor, no horsepower at all, but with
the gears it came with, it'll pull a fleet of greyhounds if ya want. This
was a truck built to last, ours still has the original U-Joints! As far as
the power steering goes, good luck, same with the rearend. We had an accident
(dad got it stuck) and he blew the 3rd member trying to get it out, Think it
cost about 1400. Just check your local yards, see what you can find.

Another possibility: 'Stop Leak Antifreeze' used to be marketed, and the
way it worked was little teeny styrofoam balls in the mix. Looked like
miniatures of the individual styrofoam beads used to mold coolers, cups,
fill bean bags, etc. could be someone used it once and some managed to hang

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Greetings:71 F100 302

Greetings, I am new to this list (2 Weeks) and have very much enjoyed the info
available here!
I thought I'd throw a few things out to everyone.

First of all, I have a general knowledge of engine repair, but not nearly enough to
tackle some of the big problems on my own!

This one is driving me crazy:
I just learned that 2 cylinders are not firing!, I've got great steady spark, (new
distributor, cap, wires
and plugs), and have gone through the positive stop rocker arm assembly, (new push
rods and rocker arm nuts where needed), and adjusted as much as I can to fix the loud
taps
and backed some off to get complete valve closure.
As far as I can tell there is compression (in the non-fireing cylinders) by feeling the
spark plug hole as the engine runs, but
I'm still not sure about this.

Also:
I'm getting a gurgling sound (metallic) on acceleration, my first thought was there was
something
jingling around with the clutch, (it sounds like that area), possibly the bearing that
forces the
clutch pressure plate to engage / disengage. (forgive my lack of terminology).
This sound is not heard when I accelerate in neutral, which points me toward some drive
train
problem, but like I said, I'm no expert.

Any help you guys could give would be great!!
Thanks, Shawn

Go to the junkyard and get one. I replaced my whole cluster because the
white plastic back part was dry-rotting (common prob) and would not hold
light bulb. I have an extra I can send you for free, you just pay shipping.
Put new light bulbs in while you are in there too since dashes are so fun to

Groovy! I was gonna do an oil change on the truck this weekend, but since
Ford wont be building the truck for two more years, I guess the oil doesn't
need changing yet...

Could these "eggs" be beads of silica gel?
You know, the little packets of stuff that comes with electronics
equipment and stuff to absorb moisture...
If you soak the silica gel beads in water for a while they will
turn in to little jelly "eggs". Maybe there was a package of them in
some of the new parts you bought.? Usually they come in a little
cloth sack, but if they went thru the H20 pump, the pump could have
chewed the bag up and let the beads out. That would also mean there's
a wad of cloth sack in the system somewhere. Maybe in your heater
core?

It's easy enought to come up with silica gel if you wanna soak some
and see if they turn into the same thing that's in your radiator...

Sirs:

I am looking for information about tires and wheels for a '67 Ford
pickup. I currently have a set of 30x9.50R15 (on stock wheels), but I
would like to put "fatter" mud and snow tires on it. Am I looking at
getting new wheels? I want the same diameter tires, or slightly bigger
(like 31"), but just with a wider cross-section. Anyone here have any
suggestions?

Thanks,

Has anyone here heard of Jackman wheels? I think they made white and chrome
spokers in the 70's - early 80's. Apparently, they had a problem: they didn't
have "torque ring" at the wheel/hub interface.....this seemed to cause them to
fall off of vehicles.

Anyone heard of this deal?

Thanks to all who shared their thoughts. I Know that the FE's are all
Enterchangable, I'm just tired of now hearing about them. Looking at
old Truck'en mags, and hot rod, no one uses 360's. You read about
390's, 352's, and 428's. I think with the correct parts and TLC. the
360 would make a great hot rod, tourqie engin.

If you are going to have the weight of a big block, you might as well have
all the cubes you can get.
Why do a 360 (or 352 for that matter) when you can do a 351W whith almost
the same displacement and a way more aftermarket support.
And 460's are bigger yet, and lighter.
I like FE's, but I don't see the point in a small displacement big block.

Ummm, no. Actually, a stock 460 is over 75 lbs heavier than an FE.
If you replace that 80 lb Fe intake manifold with something aluminum
then the FE is about 125 lbs lighter than the 460...

I think you missed my point.

I am not knocking on the FE's. I had one and it ran great. I was very happy
with it. But it was a 360.
it had about the same power as a 351W but weighed much more and would have
cost me more to build up.

If I was going to build an engine for a truck I would go for a bigger big
block. Small big blocks are no better then big small blocks.

Have you checked to see if there are sparks there ? One of my friends put
in new plugs and somehow (no idea how) dinked one of the electrodes and it
bent pretty bad, so that cylinder wasn't firing. Also Champion plugs ...
not so good of luck with those around here, not sure if you have those, but
if you do, try two of the old plugs and see if it works.

Is it the two cylinders that aren't firing causing some pinging ? (firing
intermittantly maybe?) If you're having problems with the engine, I'd wait
to worry about this, unless you think something's going to fly apart, just
to be sure that it wasn't being caused by a rough running engine.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - extra shift

Adam,

I don't know what engine you have, but if you have a 4 barrel carb on a V8,
a lot of times the back barrels kicking in will feel like another shift,
especially if they engage manually rather than on vacuum. They should have
engaged around 75 mph or earlier if you were accelerating rapidly. If the
linkage is out of adjustment, this could explain the late "shift".

I had a thought about gas tank fillers. On my 79 there is a long section of
rubber hose on the filler neck. The front one was forever rotting and Ford
quit making it. The last time I replaced it I made a metal tube to go over
the frame and used two straight pieces of rubber hose which were easy to
locate. I thought that the rubber hoses were for vibration dampening
between the frame mounted tank and the bed. Maybe those rubber hoses are
static arrestors, too.

This is true, but in switching you also had to switch trannies right ? I
would have loved to switch over to a certain 351W that my dad built this
spring (put it in a 69 Cougar and it runs great now!), but to do that I
would have had to switch the tranny too, and a C6 for a 351W isn't the
easiest thing to find ... so I could have switched the adapter to the
transfer case with the transmission ... but then is the new tranny the same
length ...

At any rate, I think its going to be a lot cheaper to just rebuild the 390
I picked up cheap and bolt it in place of the 360 I have ...

I believe this for cars, where the weight is more obvious, on my truck ( a
full 8'bed and 4wd), I don't think the issue is the weight here.

BTW when Dad got done with the 351W, it was actually a 362 if I remember
right. (+0.060 bore)

I think a small block C-6 will fit any small block.

I didn't swap. That was an "If I was gong to ...".
The truck ran Perfect, but need all new brakes and steering and the tranny
was about gone. I sold it because I couldn't afford to fix it then. I was in
college.

How about room. If you are gonna fill your engine compartment you might as
well have the cubes to go with it. Although it seems FE's still leave plenty
of space. at least in my '75 it did.

My point is that 360's aren't as often modified because you can turn that
into a 390 (or 410?) easily and you will have more power. It makes perfect
sense why people don't go around bragging bout 360's. I hear them described
as adequate, not excessively powerful.

>BTW when Dad got done with the 351W, it was actually a 362 if I remember
>right. (+0.060 bore)


Yep, and parts availability is much higher for a 351W than a 360.
And a 390 has that extra displacement.
I still so no reason to for a big time build up of a 360 when a 390 is just
a stroke away.
352 seems to be the same scenario.

A 360 is a nice engine. But a 390 is better. I don't imagine the extra 30
cubes makes much difference in mileage, but does in the power dept.

I still think a 600" 460 based stroker would be nice...

I think they are at least 7.5", and probably 8". Given that this thing
is a three-speed standard transmission, would it bollux things up to go
with 31" tires, or should I go through the effort of finding 30"? I
know its only an inch, but smaller things than this have really screwed

Well, if you buy a ch#vy you should get plenty of opportunity

On wednesday my neighbors S-10 came home on the back of a tow truck.
I'll have to go up there this weekend and see what happened to it
THIS time. Last spring when it came home on the hook it was a
broken tranny...

Funny thing is, he sold his beat up but totally reliable '74 F250
a couple years ago to buy the S-10. I told him it was a stupid thing
to do at the time, but he said he was sick of Fords (?) and wanted
a ch#vy, so I always make it a point to give him a real hard time
when the S-10 breaks down, which is *plenty* often. (-:

Hi,
Ever since we got our 66 F100, we have had trouble with the glove box. At
first, the left side spring was missing and the lid would fall down. We
bought a spring from Ford and they had superseded the left side part number
to the right side. We put it in and tried to close the lid. Half way thru
the stroke, the spring went into the hole in the dash and jammed. Returned
the spring to Ford! Next, we bought a right and left hand set at Pigeon
Forge. Same thing- the spring goes int the hole and jammed instead of
pivoting. I did notice that the hole on the left side is bigger than the
right side!
Has anyone experienced this problem? What am I doing wrong?

triumph.cs.utah.edu/sol/tech/engine.html , I will give you a few Ford engine
weights from that list: 302-460#, Y-Block-625#, 351Cleveland-550#, 351
Windsor-510#, FE Engine-650#, 429/460-640#. There are a number of people I
know who think the FE is lighter in weight than the 429/460, NOT SO!! I have
booth disassembled in my shop right now. I can pick up the 460 block and set
it on my work bench and I can not do that with the FE. Another clue comes
from looking at the two blocks sitting side by side. There is much more metal
on the lower end of the FE the entire main bearing area is completely enclosed
by the block. The 460 to make an unpleasant comparison is constructed just
like the Chevy small block. I will not argue that a FE with an aluminum
intake manifold would weigh less but not very much less. Be careful there are
a number of Web sites and for that matter printed materials that indicate the
429/460 is heavier.

Since the wires have just been replaced I would bet a considerable sum that
two of them are interchanged on the plugs or cap.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - question regarding tranny change

I have a 1978 f-150 4x4 long bed, with a 351m and c6 tranny, and I guess
np205 case. A few weeks ago, the tranny went bad, so I have been searching,
but with no luck, for one that works. no parts trucks or anything by me,
which is odd. well, anyways, I use this truck along with one other for a
plow business, and we are expecting snow within a week, so I a basically
stuck with installing a manual transmission (eek!!!!) it is from a 79
f-250. I am not sure of exactly what it is, but I know that it works, and
is off of a 351m also. I know that this is alot of work, but I want to know
if the transfer case will bolt up to the existing bracket, or if I will
have to make new holes, and also if the drive shaft lenghts are different.
I can take measurements if anyone needs them. Thank you very much in
advance, as I intend on starting this project this weekend.

Paul,
Sorry this took so long, I am in high school and work afterwards,
not to much time for myself. anyway the guy i told you about is driving
his 78 rancho, so he too needs the emmissions equip.
Check the local parts stores and junk yards, maybe you will get lucky.
the 78 broncos came with a smog pump, and a 2bbl carb. Good luck

az Eric.
