Subject: FTE 61-79 - exhaust leak sealer?

Howdy,

I have a pesky exhaust leak in the 292 in my '63 F100. It is on
the drivers side and I can only hear it when I am accelerating in gear,
but it is not readily audible in idle. I have replaced the exhaust
gaskets that go between the crossover pipe and the exhaust manifolds. I
even used a Copper sealant. This did not work. Does anyone know of any
other type of sealant that I can use and that will be able to stand the
heat. Does anyone have any other suggestions on how I can get rid of the
leak.
Thank you in advance.

Friends, Ford Truck Enthusiasts, Countrymen, Patriots all.

Please go back and read my original post again. Get past the part that says
"Totaled". Re-read the second part, the part that says:

"Beginning January 1, 2010, prohibits department from registering >>ANY
motor vehicle manufactured before 1981 unless it is antique or vehicle
of special interest or meets certain emission standards."

The emphasis on the word >>ANY
Not just "totaled" vehicles but >>ANY

If you care about you Hobby, Truck, Pastime, Vocation...

Nuff said.
Later
Muel

Hi there,

The stuff you find in gas stations that is meant to fix an exhaust leak on
the road may be able to stand the heat. It is meant to be used together
with a plate, or aluminum band around the exhaust pipe, but you can try it
other places too. At least it is made for hot places.

Hope you understand what kind of stuff I mean.

But the best would be to find what causes the leak and fix it, having a
machine shop make the manifold straight or wherever the problem is.
Also be sure the bolts are easy to turn, and goes all the way in. A bolt
that stops before the gasket is under press is not worth much.

They did a really good job of rechroming and air brushing the cover. I did
absolutley nothing to the gauges themselves. They were in fine working
order and were clean enough and looked new enough I figured it would look
great without having them redone. Their prices were reasonable enough too
compared to the 3 other people I checked with. They also do all their own
stuff in-house so I know it was not being shipped of to a plater somewhere
else.
Mr. G's plastic chrome ships their stuff out, so I have been told.

Thanks for all the replies on the pumps. I can't find one that is
labeled as a York, so I will just buy the identical looking Motorcraft
and start experimenting. Thanks again.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Jacobs Ignition

Well Folks, I finally did it. I installed the Jacob's Mileage Master Ultra
Team ignition system I've had sitting in the box since Oct. didn't take long
to hook up, and the results were immediate. It starts up IMMEDIATELY, and the
throttle response has improved quite a bit. The claim of 10% mileage increase
will be tested soon, and I'll let ya know. Anything better than the 8.5 mpg I
get now will be great.

One bit of advice, don't use the butt-connectors they supply, and double check
to make sure your plug wires are on. I had a wire come off, and it developed
a miss, and right afterward, the butt-connector failed, and voltage to the
coil was cut. I was ready to call Jacob's and do a severe butt chewin, but I
realized it was just stupid human error, of which I am guilty quite often :).
I guess I get excited to easily! The problem was rectified quickly, and I am
way impressed with the way this is working. Once again, I'll let ya know how
the mileage improves, 10% of 8.5 aint much, but every bit helps, especially....
