Subject: FTE 61-79 - Spring spacers?

Hi all,
As some of you may recall, I am in the midst
of my '67 F-100 restore project. I just got back
from Stu's web page ( way to go Stu!) and my
truck is just about as far along as his is in the
photos. I am just about ready to put the new
spings on the front end now. However, when
I disassembled my front suspension, I didn't
mark LH or RH on the spring mounts (2wd).
On one side, there was a spacer of some
sort between the radius arm and the lower
spring mount. It's a funny looking sort of tab
about 4" long with a hole in one end to go
over the radius arm-to-beam bolt. Should this
go on the driver's or passenger's side of the
truck? I looked at a '69 and '71 F-100 for info
but neither of these trucks had one on either
side. I know that this "tab" was origionally on
the truck because my grandpa owned it since
new, and there was never any work done to
the suspension. Any info to help me solve
this mechanical faux pas will be very much
appreciated. Thanks!

Subject: Re: FTE 61-79 - Oregon Law about Oldies

The one big problem I found with this law change is that there are alot
of really low income people who could barely afford to drive there old
car/truck. I can barely keep my head above water right now, and I just
rebuilt the engine in my 79 ford van. If they where to pass a law like that
then I would have to basically quit my job because I would have no way to
get there, then what? Out on the street because I can't go buy a new car
with good emissions? My newly rebuilt 351w probabily puts out less
emissions then quit a few cars built today. By passing this law the economy
is Oregon will simply drop. Its not about people who love old cars who
won't be able to legally drive there trucks that they cherish anymore. It
will be about people who are suddenly without a car, and no money to buy
another. Just the thought that someone would even think this up just pisses
me off. Probably some rich a**hole who could care less about the lower
income residents. Sorry for that, I am just getting angrier and angrier
about this. BTW, I live in Utah, but I have lived in Oregon.

Over at a junk yard around my town there is a old ford ambulance(Van)
that has a 460 in it. It has a very beefed up charging system however, two
alternators. It would probably work for your truck, but im sure you can
find the brackets that you need somewhere around where you live. I live in
Orem, UT by the way.

Well folks, I told you Id give ya the skinny on my mileage, and here it is.
Before the Install of the Jacobs I got 8.5 mpg highway. The mileage is now
10.1! Lemme give yall a few details too. As far as the Jacobs goes, It
consisted of the computer, high output coil, and new 8.5mm wires. I also
changed the plugs at this time. They were ready, but they all seemed to be in
normal condition, just old. I dont have a tailgate, and I have 33x12.5
radials in the rear, and 31x9(?) bias plys up front. They are all run at 35
psi. I think this gives all the info you all may need to make your own
decisions. If anyone has any questions, just ask.
