Subject: FTE 61-79 - K1 in diesel

>>>>Just a thought... could heating oil or K1 be burned in a diesel
motor?
They are called oil burners by some people and I have heard of some
people
burning vegetable oil (like from restaurant fry vats) in a diesel.

Yes K1 can be used in a diesel engine. From what I have heard truckers
will use a mix of 1/4 K1 to 3/4 diesel. The question is why? The answer
is road use taxes. Truckers can reduce there fuel bill because K1 does
not have road use taxes figured into the price so it is cheaper.
Politicians in my home state of North Carolina realized they were loosing
tax revenue due to this practice so recently a plan was devised to stop
it. As of a few months ago all K1 sold in North Carolina must be dyed red
indicating no road use tax is paid on it. If a trucker is stopped and has
red in his tank he gets a big fine. Our government at work.

FTE Content: I finely got the 351C running that I put in my 1965 F100.
Runs great and sounds good with those turbo mufflers. I hope to drive it
to Pigeon Forge this year.

Is anyone on this list currently running a holley pro-jection4 unit? If any
one has any experience with this system please give me some feedback I am
contemplating buying a system, for my 390 F-250, from an acquaintance. Is
$200 too much? Thanks All! Steve Salas

Subject: FTE 61-79 - master cylinders

Sparky,

Disc/drum master cylinders usually have one reservoir larger than the other
where a drum/drum MC should have equal size reservoirs. This makes it
reletively easy to visually distinguish a disc/drum from a drum/drum master
cylinder. Side note: a disc/disc mc will have equal sized reservoirs, but
they will be much larger than a drum/drum mc. If the two mcs you are
looking at swapping appear identical but are off of different systems, my
guess would be that someone has already done a cross platform swap so to
speak and the mc on the disc/drum truck doesn't belong.

I've been on vacation this week and am way behind on e-mail. I apologize if
this is a repeat.

Steve,

I would like to hear more about this. I do not have one but I would if I
could afford one. They cost over a Grand new. What is the CFM of this unit?
In my opinion if the unit works you are getting a super deal. I'm envious.
You should be able to get very precise fuel control, with increases in power
and economy. Please keep us posted on this subject.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 223 tune-up

John,
According to my old Chilton manual from
that era, a '63 223 6cyl needs the following:
plug gap .035
point gap .025
dwell 37 deg
timing 4 deg BTC
idle spd 485 rpm (w/ manual 3spd)

As per the ongoing thread on trans lube &
Ford's recomendations,use 50wt motor oil
in the tranny and standard hypoid gear lube
in the rear end. I can't tell you where to find
any maintenance manuals, but you might
try looking on e-bay. There have been a
number of manuals and the like for sale
there. Good luck!

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Spring spacer revisited

Help,help!

Last week I posted a question about a spacer
tab that apparently goes between the lower
coil spring mount and the I-beam-radius arm
junction on my '67 2wd F-100. I can't recall
which side (LH or RH) it came off of. Since no
one responded, I guess none of you knows
the answer or it may be that my description of
the problem wasn't adequate. That's ok. In
lieu of an answer, perhaps someone knows
where I can acquire an exploded view of this
area of the suspension? I looked in the
relavent parts of a catalog at NAPA but none
of the pictures broke it down that far. If some-
one out there in FTE land has a shop or parts
manual with the illustration I need I'd like to
hear from you. I'm stuck until I can resolve
this mystery. TIA!

Tim:
That illustration I gave you with part 5355 is referred to as a
"front spring shim" and is interchangeable as shown from side to side. The
Ford part No. is C5TZ 5355-A.

I can only surmise that this part is necessary when the springs are
not equal in height. Hence the name "shim".
