I'm trying to get all four original rims and hub caps for my 65 and 66 F100.
I have one hubcap and rim so far and the guy is supposed to have the other 3
now. He took them off his 66 F100 and I'm putting them on my 65. I hope
there isn't a difference in those two years.

The rims have 4 tabs facing the id (inside diameter) so that those small
hubcaps can snap in. The newer rims have the tabs facing the od (outside
diameter).

The hub cap is a dull chrome (from age I guess) with 1.5 inch high by 3/4
inch wide indented block letters about .050 of an inch deep.

I was also wondering what color I should paint my 65 and 66 rims. The rim
that I have was originally black. I collect original ads from old Field and
Stream magazines and I see that the rims were either black or some kind of
grayish color. I have an ad for a 63 that shows the rim colors to be a light
grayish.

Is there some kind of website or other resource that shows this kind of
information? What our ford-trucks site needs is photos of original years
with original paint schemes, rims, grills, hubs, bumpers, etc. I know the
site has some awesome photos but wouldn't it be nice if there was a page of
original photos?

I appreciate ford-trucks!

Since we are just about through with the 'dog-leggin' subject, I thought I
would let y'all know what I found out about the term, straight from a 1963
Field and Stream F100 ad...

'Slip into Ford's new Custom Cab and you'll find evidence of solid comfort
everywhere. Doors open wide with no knee-knocking "dog-leg" to get in your
way, and a handy inboard step helps you up and in. New foam seat cushioning
is five inches deep; visibility is unmatched; over 23 pounds of insulation
gives you a quit, relaxing ride.'

(Wish I had that insulation in my truck!)

My 65 has the small hub caps that were painted white (that matches the
truck) with red block letters "FORD". These were the original caps that
came with the truck because I was with DAD when he purchased it new in
1965.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 75 F250 4x4 Conversion to Power Steering

I have a 1975 F250 4x4 which I want to convert to power steering. I have the
original parts from a 76 F250 4x4 but they need rebuilt and cannot locate
parts for the rebuilding. I acquired a 1978 F250 4x4 steering box, which I
was told would fit (with a little alteration). Does anyone know of any
"easy" way to accomplish the conversion?

thanks,

Tim: I have the manifold you describe on my truck---Check out the picture on
my web page (Go to the FE 390 page then take the hyper link to the Exhaust
Manifold). Does one of these look like the manifold you described??? It
comes from a 1975 or later equipped with FE motor--the right bank manifold is
like the other one in the picture--When I swapped this on to my truck I bought
the matching cross-over pipe---I think it's a great manifold---lots of
strength not prone to warping or cracking. Your best fix would be replace the
flange with correct size. Be happy to help if you have any questions.

It's usually easier for me to understand when I see pictures, so to see
what Mark is talking about, look at some of the pictures of my 390
engine teardown at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.prismnet.com/~jamey/f100/rebuild.html
The engine is upside down on the stand in a few of the pictures, and you
can see the general "Y" shape of the naked block, as well as a close up
of the skirt around the crankshaft.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Front suspension woes??

I have a 1977 Ford F-250 4x4 that is having front end problems. I have had the truck since
1977 but the 2wd frame was replaced with a 1978 4x4 frame. When I did this swap 4 years
ago I replaced the bearing, tie rods, ball joints, axle joints, etc., I have since
replaced the bearings and ball joints on the driver side 4 times since and it is bad
again. The passenger side I have not had a problem with at all. The one time the bearings
went bad it trashed the spindle, so while on the side of the road I replaced everything
from the ball joints out. Is it possible that I have a bad housing. The wheelbase is
correct side to side and diagonal. I thought that it might be because I am running 39
/15.5 tires, but the passenger side has not given me any problem. Any thoughts?
Thanks guys.

Well, yes and no about the power steering. My '66 Mustang doesn't have
power steering and, well it gives your upper body a great workout,
some of us (like me) can use that :). We drove that everyday 45 miles
to work and back for the past year, while my truck was down being

I put power steering in my truck when I was putting it back together. All I
needed was a power steering gearbox and a different steering column - the
length is different between power and non-power. You might also need the
pulley for the engine...

It stands for Ford-Edsel. FoMoCo used to build one called an MEL,
for Mercury-Edsel-Lincoln. This little trend at Ford only lasted
a couple of years, back when Ford actually built separate engines
for Ford and Lincoln-Mercury, and of course, they had to account
for the Edsel, which used both Ford and Lincoln-Mercury engines.

To Ken, or anyone else who may have done the disc brake conversion from the

I just went down to the local parts store to order the kingpin kit for my
1970 F100 and I checked the kingpins for the donor truck, which in my case
was a 1978 F150. The part numbers for the TRW parts were different so I
checked the descriptions for both. The '78 had dimensions of .859" x 6.48",
whereas the dimensions for the '70 were .859" x 6.34". What I want to know
is if the .14" difference is significant, or should I be purchasing the KP
for the '78?

Subject: FTE 61-79 - HOLLEY VACUUM PROBLEM

No hitting will happen...........you did hear me say I didn't know
anything about this carb, didn't you? Well, it looks like I was taking the
reading from the port that feeds the vacuum advance on the dist. (Sorry! )

Is there supposed to be another vac port on this carb?.....cant seem to
find one except for the base plate and it's 1/2 in port.
I'll try tapping into that one and running the test again. Thanks Burt.

Ken. How do i post a parts wanted ad on this site? I forgot how to do it.
While I have your attention. I need a cab, bed and radiator core support for a
65 F100. I'm not some kid fooling around here. I've had this truck for 16
years and want to redo it to pull my boat but the body cancer is bad. I'm
willing to pay top dollar for very good used parts. Thanks John

I could not resist this subject, it has been a subject on this FTE List at
least once in the last six weeks or so. Someone else fielded the question
then and I fully agree with them. They said the FE stood for Ford Edsel. I
looked it up and it is true. In fact earlier tonight I read a posting here
that talked about the MEL series of engines. MEL stands for Mercury Edsel
Lincoln. And they are the same blocks as the FEs, just a different series of
cars they were used in.

An easy vacuum tap might be the vacuum line to your AOD.
