Is there a problem with the '62s frame? Couldn't you just drop the engine

From: Raymond Christensen
Subject: FTE 61-79 - 1979 F150 VIN and such

I bought my first Ford in November 1998. A co-worker and friend finally
gave in to my six years of badgering and agreed to sell me his 1979 F150
4X4 short wheel base. He was the original owner, having bought in new off
the lot. To say he took good care of it is an understatement. I've been
lurking here on this list since the purchase attempting to purge all the
prejudices my Grandpa and Dad instilled in me 30 plus years ago. Not a
difficult task, I'm really enjoying the thing (I'm too close to 50 years
old and should know better).

Anyway, I have just a few (really!) questions for you kind and knowledgable
souls:

1. Quoting the 1979 FORD TRUCK F-100 THRU F-350 SERIES OWNER'S GUIDE, "The
model year of the vehicle may be determeined from the unit number which
consists of the last six characters in the warranty number on the rating
plate. 1979 Model year F-Series vehicles have unit numbers of DC0000
through CK9999."

The last six characters on my truck are FE4475. (Model year on the same VIN
does say 1979.) Could someone clear up my confusion here?

2. The VIN says the type is "F140". Huh?

3. It is a 4X4 from the factory, yet it only has one axle code "16". The
OWNER'S GUIDE shows there should be two codes, one for each axle.
(According to Chilton's "16" indicates a 3.50 ratio on a 1983 F150?)

4. It has dual shocks up front (two per side). My friend says that is how
it came. I've not ever seen it before, except with aftermarket stuff. Also,
the durn think sits real high. The LT235R75's look like roller-blade
wheels. I think I could hide a German Shepard in all the extra space.
Again, it was that way off the lot according to my friend. Is this the
highboy I see written about?

5. The engine is a 300 I6 with 4spd manual. Within the last two years it
has had a new radiator, heater core, 195 deg thermostat, hoses, etc. I
really have to bundle up to stay warm in the thing. Granted, it's been -20
to -50F for the last month (I live in Fairbanks). But, I've had a smaller
V6 just about cook me in my Astro at the same tempertures. Is this normal
for this engine. My friend says he has chased this problem since new. Once
it drops below +10F the gloves stay on. I read on another newsgroup a
recommendation to use a 7 pound radiator cap vice the 15 pound standard to
cure a similar problem. How does that work?

6. Is 9.5 to 11.0 mpg as good as it gets?

I have more questions, but I'll be lucky if I've kept your attention this long.

TIA, Ray

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Re: Made a web page ... headers

Thanks to all for the good words about my truck and
motor. It was my first attempt at a web page and I
really appreciated the comments.

William S Hart wrote:

The headers in the pictures are for a 2WD since the motor
was going in the supercab. I got the standard black
painted ones because I just had this feeling the motor
would be going into a 4WD someday.

I was happy.... I should say amazed, at how well these
headers fit. The instructions say you have to bend the
kickdown rod for an auto which I did. The flanges have
a welded bead the shape of the port and the bead is then
machined flat. They seal very well with good gaskets.

I searched far and wide looking for a good set of ceramic
headers for the new truck. I ended up going back to
Dynomax. James A. Doty said that he is pleased with the
ceramic ones he has been running in his van.

The headers just came from Summit yesterday. I haven't
got a good look at them, but sitting in the box they look
awesome. The ceramic coating is silver and very shiny.
They do look longer than the other set and I remember
the guy at Stan's Headers saying the 4WD ones hang down
further. Is this considered a bad thing?

The instructions say the passenger side is two piece. I
don't like the sound of that. We'll see.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - quicktime

Ox,

Quicktime is the cross platform industry standard for movie files on a PC.
An alternate format common to Intel PCs only is AVI. It is extremely easy
to convert an AVI file to a Quicktime file.

FTE content: If Stu makes a movie of his truck reassembly with a video
camera or a series of stills, he will have to stitch the stills or convert
the movie on tape using one of these formats. Actually, he will probably
make one of his kids do it.

Seems to me the drivers side should be a two piece header, not the passenger
side. I used to run Blackjack/Cyclone/Dynomax I think they all merged. On my
71, and it needed the two piece to go around the mount on the drivers side and
still have room for the linkage and driveshaft. They did always leak a bit,
you couldnt hear it. but it would leave a black puff around the joint.

The absolute best ones I got for my truck were Hedman, One piece both sides,
equal length tubes, and I was able to slide them both in through the top
without jacking up the motor on a 390. They are a far better design, although
the Blackjack/Cyclone lasted about 8 years, not bad for 57 dollars way back
when.

Just my 2 cents......

hehehehehe, perfect setup there, John!!! thanks!! I can't resist the
temptaions here.......

That "Kid" being Tony Marino!!! He is more than capable of handling all
that mess.
It was my idea to try it so, who knows. Tony has yet to agree to do it.
Please Kid?? 8^)

Things are moving much quicker than I had planned on my restoration. The
paint should be done soon and
thanks to Jim Elliot (FTE member) in Nasville, TN, I now have an appointment
with a *superfine and anal* engine builder in the middle Tenn area on the
15th of Feb.
He promises to be complete with the short block and heads for my assembly
by the 15th of March.
Th first day of spring break!!! I sense a major assembly happening this
week!!!
Anyway, apparently this guy is as anal as Azie or Sleddog when it comes to
building
an engine and machine work so he gets the nod this time out!

NOT A HIGHBOY. I THINK THE DUAL SHOCKS WERE AN OPTIONAL HANDLING PACKAGE.

SAME WITH MY '79 F250. I'VE NEVER HEARD OF THE RADIATOR CAP TRICK
AND REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW IT MIGHT WORK.

Ah, yes. The joy of showing it off when it was new. It's too bad
that no matter what we do, they will never look this good again. But
for that brief moment........

How lucky you are to have been able to acquire this one, and I'll bet
the truck can't believe its good fortune to have fallen into good,
loving hands. (Sounds like I'm talking about a pet adoption). (Then
again, maybe I am)! This was truly a find. Take good care of it!

It might be the last of the 78 series production run that ran into the 79
production run

That should be the 6050gvwr truck, the lightest duty F-150 most likely a
shortbed. An F141 might be a 6200gvwr longbed and so on and so on

I think they just used 1 code to show what the axle ratio would be since the axles
them self didn't differ much if at all the last few years. On the F250-350 you
might have 2 axle codes (F250 with a Dana 44 or 60 front ect.)

Highboy, No. The dual shock setup was a factory option. You can run a larger
tire easily A 31x 10.5 is a good size.

As far as staying warm a heavier cap should hold pressure better for higher
temps. He might have added a larger radiator when it was replaced. You might try
a small radiator cover ro retain some of the heat in the engine

How can I say no to somebody like you, Stu?! Actually, just to throw it in
here, I'll probably use Adobe Premier to put the stills together, run it in
a string AVI, and then compress it to a real G2 format with several options
on network speed for you end users. That way clarity isn't compromised for
compression all that much, and for those of you modem users don't have to
wait to get some 10 meg video of Stu's truck being built, rather it'll
buffer it to your computer. 8-)

Subject: FTE 61-79 - engine belts

hey guys:

I have been trying to find the belts for my '72 351w wtih no luck.
All that is on the front of the engine is the water pump w/double groove
pulley and the alternator w/single groove pulley and the three groove
crank pulley. the first groove on the water pump pulley lines up with
the alternator. the second groove on water pump lines up with the
second on the crank. These pulleys require 2 belts so the belts line up.
So my questions are:

1. Am I missing a tensioner on the crank pulley?
2. Does anybody know the part # (NAPA or such)?

** I do not have pwr steering or air cond.**

Please help!!

GREAT NEWS, another Ford comes to life. My grandma gave me her 79 F-150 and
it had died and sat in her side yard left to rust and die and I got my
liscense and it got handed down to me to rescue it. And today (2-6-99) at
approx. 3:00 it was born all over again and sounded better than what I can
recall it sounding when we used to take it to bluegrass festivals in West
Virginia when I was a little tyke. It has made my hour, day, and year just
to hear that o' so sweet sound of a Ford once again. My stepdad being a
chevy man, said I better get used to fixing it, and I just laughed and said,
we'll see knowing that my Ford could beat either one of his chevy anyday.
Anyways, I just thought I'd let all ya'll Fordies know that another beast is

I would guess you should have a dual groove alt pulley, and run two belts over
the water pump, alt, and the crank. My 71 was the optional HD alt, and this
was the difference. Not sure on belt numbers though. Buy something, then go
back to the store, they can give you longer or shorter based on what you find.
It may take a few trips, but its probably the easiet way

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 400/460 swap/pulleys?

Dear Friends,
I am almost through with the 400/460 swap in my 78 4x4. Everything is
working out fine, but i need to know what pulleys and brackets will work with
this setup. The 460 came from a 70 model lincoln. Can anyone help me? Thanks,
boon

Ok I will try and help......I run an alternator bracket from a 1973
LTD...this fits using the small case alternator...My air cond,and pulleys
are also from this car....Power steering is the big headache....I used to
run the 1973LTD pump in my Bronco...but with a front Detroit this
sucked....so I used a saginaw pump and bracket off a 1978 motorhome...this
worked great except I had to get the pulley for the power steering from a 76
van with a 460...The motorhome used a duel belt pulley and this wouldn't
work in my appl.. I was running the older wider belts....so hence the
reason for changing the pulley!! So to answer your question.....If ya have
a salvage yard handy look for a small case alternator bracket and that will
fix that and you will have to decide how ya want to do the power steering
stuff also.....this is probably clear as mud so feel free to e-mail me with
questions,.....LOL hope this helped

I have just returned from the big swap meet in Moltrie, Ga.
It is a large (for this area) open swap meet. Must have been
5 to 10 acres of parts in addition to another 5 acres of
vehicles for sale. I particularly liked a '61 F-100 short bed
"unibody" pick-up. It was (very) yellow with the original
6cyl. engine and late model Ford truck chrome wheels.
It was so sharp! I believe it was for sale for around $6000.00.
I know, it sounds like a lot but it was so clean! He said
if he did not sell it at Moltrie that he might try to take it to
Pigeon Forge for the F-100 Nationals. If you like "unibodys",
you'll love this truck. As far as parts, I looked around for
4 hours and doubt that I saw one third of the parts for sale.
Ofcourse, most of the parts were brand 'X', but there were
Ford parts there too! I saw brand new stepside fenders,
script and block lettered tailgates, grills and chrome
bumpers for Ford trucks. New trim pieces that would
make any truck look new. (Whole lot of drooling going on!)
I really had a good time. If you ever get the chance to go,
do it!
