I'm new to this list and haven't asked any questions, yet but am being
beckoned by a '64 that's been in my garage for 17 years. My opinion is
that having a list for 1961-1967 would be a good idea.

You are asking the wrong guy as I am no expert on carburetor tuning.
If it were me I would check to see if the secondaries are not
opening all the way, or that your timing is not getting enough
advance. Just uneducated guesses though.

I can tell you that my 600 was basically a bolt on. I did have a
mechanic, who had an exhaust analyser, lean the mixture to pass the
emission sniff test which it did easily. He said he went down one
step on the metering rods, same jets. I can't tell any difference
in performance.

Mine is a manual choke model which Edelbrock sets up slightly richer
than the one with an electric choke. Should have gotten the electric
choke. I've had too many times I would forget to take it off. A
friend of mine was at emissions and didn't pass. On the way home
he realized he had forgotten to take the choke off.

This is great. Now I am going to be the Q-tip guy.

Hey, I only went through about 20 Q-tips last night on the
intake manifold. How else can I get into all those nooks
and crannies?

Like I was telling the wife, while I was washing my spark
plug wires with soap and water in the bathroom sink, it is
the little details that make all the difference.

Don't get me wrong, all this is just for the moment when I
put the motor in and I have a couple of months to show it
off. After that the truck is back to being used as a
truck.

It is starting to look a lot better, but will never look
like the pictures again.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Vin #'s

Your State Police (Highway Patrol) would have to inspect it and make a
decision on it. I've built a couple of basket-case Harleys for people
that didn't have all or their ducks in a row legally. The Highway
Patrol looked at the bike and assigned the frame to a general
description.

An exanple, one was a '76 AMF frame, with a Panhead (also of mixed
vintage) wide-glide front end and fat-bob tanks of unknown vintage. It
ended up titled as a '76 HD, but it looked like an old Duo-Glide to look
at it.

The key is to have titles and or bills of sale for the major
components.
I'm in the process of pulling the '69 390 and C-6 out of my '67 F100,
I've sold the body to someone who can put it back together or use it to
put another one together. I'll miss it. I'm going to rebuild the 390
short block for my '65, and add the '65 T-bird heads and intake I
already have salted away. The heads have new exhaust valves and
hardened seats, new valve-springs, etc. Plans for the shortblock include
a little oiling system tweaking, hyperuectic pistons and an RV cam. It
should be a sweet engine.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - was, cars...er, trucks!,LIST SPLIT

Well Ken, and all

From the sound of it all it is time too look at a list split again, no
matter how much I am against it ;-)

There is no need for Daniel to create his own list, we (Ken does
anyway) have the capability right here. Maybe Daniel could manage that
list if he wanted to to take the work off of Ken maintaining another list.
By keeping the list with FTE we keep the exposure to new people and ideas.

As far as the years are concerned that has been an ongoing debate. We
pretty much agreed with the 67 going to the later model years 67-79 because
they have the most in common. 65-66 F-100's have a lot in common
mechanically with the 67-79 but the body style is defiantly 61-66. That
bring up the question of the 57-60. Lots mechanically with the 61-64 but a
slightly different body style. Do they stay with the 60 and earlier list
or would they like to move up to the 61-66 list.

Just my inconsistent, haven't had coffee yet thoughts.

Dennis,

There is bound to be a way to title it. Call your county tax office and
find out. Be patient, they are bureaucrats I probably didn't spell that
right) and arent' trained to think, only follow rules. I have seen a
Cadillac Eldorado body put on a 4x4 Ch#*y PU chassis. The guy that owned
King Kong (the monster truck, not the monkey) was based in Killeen for a
while. He had some pretty odd looking 4x4s. Another place to ask about
titling odd concoctions is a wrecking yard that does rebuilds and
restorations. In Texas there is a Rebuilder's Title for salvaged vehicles.
This also prevents someoone from passing a total off as a low mileage
"clean" car. A Rebuilder's Title also explains mismatched numbers. If it
looks like a pickup, I would think Texas would make you title it as a
truck, don't know how other states would handle it. Some people title SUVs
as trucks while others title them as passenger vehicles. In Texas a half
ton pickup costs about the same as a passenger car to register, so cost
isn't the factor.

This sounds like a good setup. One of the biggest problems I had with every
4-wheel disc system I ever owned was that the parking brakes didn't work
well. I always had a tough time passing annual safety inspection because of
this. I must also add that they were all off brands. Another good reason to
stick with FoMoCo blue.

From: John LaGrone
Subject: FTE 61-79 - different Differential ratios

Well. let's see. I would take the average of the inverses. So we have 1
divided by 4.56 = .21929824561. 1 divided by 3.50 = .28571428571. Now we
add those two impressive decimal values and get .50501253132. Divide by two
gives .25250626566. Find the inverse and you get 3.9602977668 or 3.96 for
an effective ratio. I am pretty sure this is wrong, too because it doesn't
allow for slippage properly.

Now I never did study this in detail, but for some reason when you hook
stuff up in parallel, the effective value usually involves calculations on
the inverses. In reality, this particular problem may invlove squares and
square roots of inverses. The best way to solve the problem would be to run
the vehicle and get an RPM reading off the tach, then do some calculations
based on tranny gear ratio, tire size, etc. Anybody got a treadmill big
enough for a Ford truck?

The effective gear ratio is actually unimportant. Like it has been said, on
dry pavement with everything locked up the effective ratio would be 0
because something would break. If you are in mud and everything is locked
up, then each diff would turn at its own rate. With everything unlocked on
dry pavement, the gear ratio would be equivalent to the rear axle ratio.
All the powertrain slippage would allow only one rear wheel to deliver
power to the road surface anyway. The first wheel to lose traction would
spin. If the front hubs and transfer case aren't locked, make that the
first rear wheel to lose traction spins, assuming non-locker diffs. Unless
the transfer case is locked, power is delivered only to the rear diff. I
think the original post sadi something about an NP203 transfer case. If
this is the fulltime transfer case, all of this holds true anyway. The
system is designed to deliver power to the rear wheels unless it is locked.
Other wise the front wheels would spin everytime you went thru a puddle or
around a corner. Has anyone ever smoked their FRONT tires when gunning
around a corner? I don't think so. Raw engine power isn't the problem.

This is the same system my dad's vette had on it ... it never worked right
either ... we replaced everything inside the rotor once and it worked for
about a week, maybe a month, don't really remember, but I know he never

there is a change from 66 to 67, but 67 and 68 seem very similar (from

I discovered that the armrests from the mid-to-late 70's vans (sorry, don't
know what years) are the same as the armrests in the 68-72 F-series trucks. I
found several vans in the local yard, so I had plenty to choose from....a heck
of a lot cheaper than the aftermarket units.....

I don't mind another list. We can certainly handle the bandwidth
since our last upgrade. Also, I'm putting a script in place to
automate more of my admin tasks.

Concerning the list talked about, I thought it was kind of odd to
see someone recruiting people here for a truck list. A good analogy
would be walking into Microsoft's break-room and asking employees
if they would be interested in working for Lotus on the side.

Due to traffic increases on the 61-79 list, the following
vote has been added to the web site:

1. Split the 61-79 list into 61-66 and 67-79
2. Split the 61-79 list into 61-64 and 65-79
3. Reorganize the lists into 48-56, 57-64 and 65-79.
4. No, don't change 'em!
5. Don't care

Item 3 will cause me to have an enormous work load during
the transition. Keep that in mind if you're planning to
vote for item 3.

If anyone is thinking of cheating again, keep in mind that

The Versailles rear is too weak for a truck if it is doing anything but
light commuter service. They have 28 spline axles and are generally too
lightly built throughout to withstand abuse.

A 351W C-6 Mustang (not raced all the time) would be the best candidate
for this rear, a much heavier or more torque-stressed vehicle and it
probably wouldn't hold up very well.

Hi guys,

I have a '79 F-250 4x4 with a transplanted '68 429 in it and
a C6 auto/NP205.
It's a great truck, but it's also black, and in July and
August, those two make a nasty combo.
Anyway, this truck has the standard heater, no dash vents,
and no A/C.
I have always wanted to add A/C to this thing, but didn't
know where to start. Has anyone added A/C to this vintage
truck? If so, were there specific donor vehicles whose parts
worked best?
I have looked at some of the aftermarket places, and found
an underdash kit for ~$900US, but I'd much rather transplant
something in from, say, an LTD, and have it look stock.

Thanks,

Sean

Yo Steve:

My neighbor across the street just recently sold his 1966 F100 Camper
Special. It was equipped w/ huge leaf springs in the rear and a Dana 60-2
semi-floater rear axle.

I would have thought the same thing about Camper Specials, too. I guess
the Ford works in mysterious ways.

If you had a Holley 4 bbl. on it before you will notice a difference
I had a Holley on my FE and switched to a Carter.The Carter has
counterwieghted secondaries that are slowly pulled open by vacum.
The best comparison I can think of is a Holley secondary is like
hitting a switch and a Carter's is like opening a valve.You should

Well lots of different prices, what body style ? Flare side ? Style side ?
6.5ft or 8ft?

Doesn't list option prices, just base for the truck. Does list which
options were available then ..

Anyway the base prices are from 2072 for a bare F-100 chassis-cab

New question: 1967 F100 with 300 engine, Single Bbl Carb. Starts
wonderfully, runs like a champ. Drive it for two or 3 miles. Shut it off for
10-15 minutes. Does not want to start. Crank and crank and crank - it
sputters then chugs for a while then it will settle down and run. It will
then completely stop two or three times as you drive away and will restart
itself.
I've had the carb rebuilt, new points, plugs, distributor, coil, timing,
dwell. What next?

Have you adjusted everything on the carb since you've put it back on ? The
choke and mixture and all that ... in that 10-15 minutes you let it sit,
its going to warm up compared with what it was when you shut it off, it
could be so rich its flooding out or the choke not opening all the way?

Sounds like you've got everything else covered ... might check for vacuum
leaks, though I doubt it

Good luck

Hey, thanks for the input. It's a manual choke so that isn't the problem.
I've had a mechanic looking at it. He says the carb body stays dry which
should rule out flooding. He checked the fuel pump which seemed another
possibility but he says that's strong. He did say that #1 cylinder was not
firing as smooth as the rest which is another mystery.
Anyway, thanks for the help.

OK, a great description of the whole process, but at what point above
did you actually put the new caulk back on? ;-)

BTW, I assume the SLAC is a reference to a Linear Accelerator that
beats the snot out of 'dem Chebbies!

Actually, with a NP203 in the unlocked position any wheel with the least
traction would spin, front or rear. My '75 used to have a NP203 and if i
canned it on gravel, straight line, the front end would spin. When unlocked,
this transfer case works exactly like an open differential, sending power to
front and/or rear. The only way to get rear wheel drive is to take out the
front driveshaft and lock the transfer case. Same goes for low range (low and
low-lock).

Hmmm...I found putting hubs on the front wheels was much more efficient
when I needed 4 back ... :)

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 1978 ford f150 supercab 4x4

I got a 1978 ford f150 supercab 4x4. It's got a 3/4 ton suspension, which
means four wheel leaf springs. Has anyone ever put the coil spring suspension
from a 1/2 ton onto this frame? Does it just bolt up after you remove the 3/4
ton suspension. I want to convert this truck from a 4x4 to a 4x2. Also, when
i take the transfer case off of this truck, can i just swap the tailshaft from
a 4x2 supercab, and the driveshaft, will it bolt right up? I am also planning
a 460 conversion from the 351M, which i have heard is very straight forward,
but, does anyone know of any big problems? Also, has anyone lowered a truck
like this, and if they have any information or pictures, I would be very
interested in them.
Thanx
Derek

P.S.- Before i do any of this, is there anyone interested in buying the truck
as--is? It is stripped inside, could use a new cab, has a very solid bed,
which needs a new side panel, 351M with crane cam, holley 600 cfm, edelbrock
intake. Live in Pennsylvania, if interested "dr11agon aol.com".

Did your mechanic check the compression? I've had engines that behaved
like yours when the valves were getting burnt. Enough compression when
cold, but warmed up they acted just like yours...

I guess I better get a snapshot of that beast Marquis before I take her

Thanks for the encouragement. I know I'll do a better job if someone else

Subject: FTE 61-79 - RE: Turn signal switch

Just a quick hint for anyone who is removing/installing wires. Before you
remove the old ones tie a piece of string to one end, tape it securely with
a small piece of electrical tape, and pull the wires through from the other
end. This way you can tie your new wires to the string add a piece of
electrical tape, to give them a tapered end, and haul them back through
using the string. Saves hours of trying to feed stubborn wires through
tight areas. It also helps to tie the loose end of the string to something
real tight, this way the string wont follow the wires through by accident,
also ensure you use a string that is quite a bit longer than you need.

Hi,
I am also new to the list. I have a 66 F100 without

a bad body. I keep thinking of combining the two.
I also would like to be on the 61 - 67 list.

that having a list for 1961-1967 would be a good idea.
