>> Here's a case for all you Ford Detectives out there.
>Okay, John, I'll take a crack at it. Here's what I think:
>I think you have a 1968 truck that has been mixed-n-matched
I agree!
>The VIN plate missing is probably because the guy who did all
>this didn't have a clear title to one of the trucks and ripped
>the plate off so that he could "match" this vehicle with the
>1971 title.
All righty then, go to the front right (pass side) frame rail on top near
where the
little charcoal canister is (maybe back a little toward the cab)and see what
the VIN number sez. It should be right there and match the VIN number on
your title.
This will tell you exactly what year the frame is, probably the brakes too.
Surely that guy wouldn't have swapped spindles - even for grins.
>The engine could be out of anything;
Look under the coil for a 3 or 4 inch long and 5/8ths inch wide engine ID tag.
It should tell us what the engine is from - provided it is still
there........however I would say not likely from the sound of it all.
>The bumper is probably off of the 1971, the hood is either correct
>for a 1968 or it's the 1971 with the trim removed. I'm guessing
>there.
The hood should have 2 hood bumpers per side if a 71 hood, and if a 68 hood,
it has one hood bumper on each side. Also, the 71 would havbe holes where
the trim used to be. Also, What does the instrument panel look like?? You
can pull the panel and find the date, it will be stamped as to when it was
built in ink like the radio.
You do need to pull the wiring harness (easy) from the back of it and
disconnect the speedo cable. 71 and 68 instrument panels were different
shape and paint scheme if I am not mistaken. Steering wheel is another
clue. 71 and 72 wheels had the single bar across the center and one piece
plastic. The 67-70 steering wheeels had the 3 spokers.
Look at the rear end dif. tag bolted to the passengers side front area. It
will look similar to the engine id tag. It should have the year of application.
What does the sticker on the drivers door jamb say? Has it been removed?
The door VIN plate you said was missing. On the bottom of the radio it
should be stamped with a date in ink, usually blue.
What about the rear side bed markers that run along the belt line. Are they
present?
If so the bed is a 71. If absent the bed is a 68.

>Mind you, this is only my theory. It does seem to fit the facts
>and it is certainly plausible. Good luck!

Yeah I agree, and I am also one who also thinks there was a second shooter
on the grassy area in Dallas and that Elvis is still alive and well.
Richard Petty has been driving Jeff Gordon's car secretively because only
the King could be as good as him. I could go on but i won't. Anyway - I do
have to think something is really wacky with your truck.

1989 is the first year the M5OD trans was offered. Prior to that it was a

It's made by Mazda and the OD ratio is about .85 or so.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Front Disc Brakes for 4x4

I saw where someone was asking if you could just change spindles and
hubs/rotors to update for disc brakes. If you are talking about the 4x4's,
you'll also need to change the steering knuckles. The newer spindles have
fewer mounting holes. I suppose you could re-drill the spindles.....don't know
if thats a good idea or not...

You'll also have to switch tie rods....they made the tapered holes bigger on
the disc brake knuckles....you can either just switch the main tie rod, and
hook your existing drag link in, or switch the drag link as well, but you'll
want to change the pitman if you are going to do this so the drag link is
"below" the pitman rather than above...

By the way, the 76-up F-250 44 HD spindles/hubs will bolt right onto the
1/2-ton 44's with the disc brake knuckles......

Steve,
I am assuming that you don't know who is making the complaints about your truck. If
so, start by being *real* nice to the cop, apologize for them having to do this when they
are probably much more busy (even if you don't believe it). If the cop aint a total jerk,
he'll (or she'll) probably be pretty sympathetic when they see your truck and hear you
haven't been driving it UNTIL you could get the brakes fixed because it would be unsafe.
Maybe they will tell you who's making the complaints. Then after you pass, if you don't
drive the truck (and I think you should - letting a nice old truck sit is a sin) the next time a
complaint is made you can call down to the cops saying its just Mr (or Ms) X doing it
AGAIN, that you've already been inspected by cop Y and you don't understand why this
person is harassing you....

If you can find out who's making the complaints, go talk to them. Visit them in
person, be very very nice, tell them the brakes needed work and you don't want to be
responsible for killing some lady and her kid because the truck shouldn't have been driven.
Let them know that in the future you would appreciate they talk to you before going to the
cops for problems they have with you. If the cop wont give you the complainer's name,
ask them to deliver the message for you.

In the end, the person who did it will probably be feeling real stupid, lose some credibility
with the cops (especially if they do this kinda thing alot, and I will bet that they do), the
cops will be cool with you, and hopefully your truck will be on the road.

Raymond Parsons writes: >>
I replaced the fuel pump on my 67 352 and am still not getting fuel to the
carburetor. I suspect I have a problem somewhere between the tank and the
pump. Tonight I am going to see if the pump picks up fuel from another
container (possible I am not getting the pump shaft onto the cam).

Look for small pinholes in the line between the fuel pump and tank. Pull
the pickup line from the tank and see if the bottom end is rotted off (it
is a steel line all the way to the near bottom of the tank, and
occasionally evaporation will cause moisture to collect in bottom of tank
and rust out the line). As you say, check the pump in some container other
than than your tank.
I really don't think you can pull the fuel pump all the way up to the block
if you have the pump arm in above the eccentric(it goes below the
eccentric). I have a very hard time getting the bolts started on most fuel
pumps I replace. I always seem to get the engine stopped with the
eccentric in the highest point for the fuel pump arm and I can't see into
the hole to find the lower spot as I rotate the engine, so I usually mark
the Vibration damper with chalk and turn the cranK one complete revolution(
this turns the cam one half revolution) and I try again until I get on the
part of the eccentric that gives me the most freedom from binding.

Good luck

This was my posting ... I was curious because apparently the 74's had
optional front discs, my truck didn't though, and since they were the same
year, I was wondering how much would be the same this time ... I was hoping
the problem you describe above were for older trucks with newer disc brakes

It isn't already ? Hmmm...since mine was put together from several trucks
I don't think mine is actually stock in more than two or three ways ... I
knew I was in trouble when he put a 2wd cab on a 4x4 and left the master
cylinder from the 4x2 on !

Will this switch me to 8lug wheels ? I'm really just looking to upgrade
stopping power. My drums work fine for what I do, but just want the discs
... just because mostly ...

If anyone can send me pics of what their front suspension looks like with
the disc brakes and power steering like its supposed to work (not the
goofy assist thing I've got) then maybe I can figure out what I want versus
what I have ...

snip' lots of detail.

In all your rebuilding did you check the little nylon pads on the shift forks? They
can wear and/or fall off reducing the travel of the gears so they don't completely
mesh.

I know this has been discussed in the past but I cannot rememberr the

What is commonly referred to as "dragging starter". Usually one of the
fields opens up and you are trying to start on just half the normally
available power. or one of the brushes is loosing contact - which is still
half power.

[remainder of excellent, level-headed advice snipped].

Best post yet on this thread. This way, the neighbor won't get
even more unreasonable, Steve's parents won't be offended or
embarrassed, and the cops will realize that Steve doesn't
have a pile of junk in his driveway that he's 'going to fix
up someday'. Well said, Bryan.

Now, here is what I would LIKE to do. I'd like to call a real
estate agent in (Everyone is assuming Berkeley, but I'm not
sure). I'd find a nice, big, prominent agency that specializes
in million dollar + houses. Then I'll make an appointment to
spend the day, and look at a few of them. Say, in about a week.
Then, I'd drive my truck up to Jeff's in Sacramento, borrow his
kids playhouse, put it in the back of my truck and fill it up
with Jeff's favorite garden food, Turkey Manure. Then, I'll drive
home, and let it age for a week. Maybe put some grow lights on
it, been kind of cold around here, just to get it nice and warm,
and cooking. Then, on the big day, put a nice suit on (hmmm, I'd
have to rent that!), bring along some pre-qualification papers
from my bank, and go house hunting. Off, course, I'd have to leave
my truck in front of the agency, but they'll get over it :-)

Well, I can dream, can't I?

My '66 has a 352 but that shouldn't make much difference. The hot water
valve is inside the passenger side fender in plain view under the hood.
It is in one of the hoses going to the heater core.

On mine it is now impossible to turn, so I just leave it on and shut the
air door, it doesn't let too much hot air by. I might consider
replacing it with a straight hose if it gave any trouble, and it would
help you isolate your problem.

I also used one of these on my P/S pump when I did my 460
conversion. MAC tools carries them also. How do I know? I
borrowed this tool from a friend and broke it while using it
and had to replace it.:-( Just ask them for the "power steering

I believe it is called a pulley puller. I got one at Auto Zanie for about $25.

Replacing the pulley on my 78 required a bolt and large washer - the shaft
of the pump is threaded on the inside. There was enough friction between
the pulley and shaft that I could hold the pulley and turn the bolt without the
pump spinning.


Good Luck,

William,
Regarding your F-100 and it's starting prolems,
I've had the same experience a few times over
the years and always found the culprit to be the
fuel pump. The check valves get worn or dirty
and allow the fuel from the carb, line, and filter
to drain back into the tank over time. They
then are not able to pump fuel back up to the
carb when cranking due to the low RPMs but
will work at higher revs. This is why it'll keep =

going onceyou get it started or after only being
shut off for a short time. A new pump always =

fixed it for me. Hope this helps.

Tim, when I stomp on the gas it stutters and then almost stalls then I
hear a sucking sound and then if I ease off the gas she'll rev up then.
Does this sound like the fuel pump also? Also I'm assuming there is a
gasket on the fuel pump, can I swap out a pump from a 79 302 or am I
better off getting a new pump? Remember it is a huge pain for me to get
parts here and I have to wait awhile. Can I gerryrig or ducktape
something up? TIA

Take the pump (New/Old) to a meachine shop and they will get it of and they
will also press the pull back on. But only for a price....Good luck....

He doesn't work there anymore, was there when these trucks were new. He
does remember they were 354 CID, and the valve cover covered part of the
head and intake. When they needed parts, could only get from Ford or U-Haul.

What are you talking about? After selecting the three

When I first saw the artist's work I said "wow!" Then I
gave him an extra $25! We're really excited about this,
and about finally getting a Ford truck club going. Several
of us are hammering down the final details on a club
constitution. If all goes as planned, we should have a

The simplest way to get it off is take it to a local repair shop and get
them to take it off for you, it takes a special tool. Or you could just
rent the tool. Putting it back on is easier than taking it off. If it is
just pressed on, and the resivor(cant spell) is made out of metal, then
just put in a vise, pulley shaft facing up, and tap it on with a mallet or
hammer, with a block of wood in-between. If its a plastic one, then just
remove it and do it the same way..
