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

Guys...Ken...wait!


I never proposed to make another list. I never said it was too
overloaded. I think the list is fine just the way it is. I really
enjoy hearing from everybody.

In fact, I think that a lot of the 'smarts' comes from guys that
work on 67-79 trucks.

All I was proposing was to make a list of names and emails of guys
who would be willing to be contacted privately, off-list about
early 60s trucks!

There just seem to be a lot of 'newbies' that would benefit from
being able to contact other 60s guys about "specific" questions.

I happen to know from personal experience that if I post a specific
question on this list, I get maybe one or two responses. However,
if I have a list of 10-12 emails of people I can talk to one-on-one,
time and time again... see where I'm going with this?

We could just make the list once and post it in the archives.
That's all.


Please don't split the list.
There is no need to reconstruct it either.

The fuel pump has my vote---But also be sure to verify that your line is not
plugged or kinked and fresh fuel filters. This includes both lines to and
from the pump and the tank pick-up tube inside tank. You can generally
verify the pump with a pressure gauge although I have seen them work properly
on an intermittent basis. Best way to solve problems is to isolate and
eliminate possible sources.

Ken and fellow FTE'ers,

I know the "list split idea" has come up a bazillion times. I remember the
first vote!!
This is an open ended post looking for a reply....actually asking for a
vote, BUT........
I feel I must do as much lobbying as I can on this issue to help sway as many
61-79 people as I can. I am not much on politicking but I feel I must voice
my opinion publically.

I have been on the list since March of 97, and since then a "split" - "not
to split"
vote has crept up several times. I fully understand the intent and need of
some FTE members to narrow the
scope. Fortunately, through the years, the personality of the "original
FTE group" I first became involved with
has not changed much at all! I firmly believe we need to remain *As Is*
(61-79) in order
to help maintain the wealth of information and the comradare I get from
the list.

I dunno, maybe I am just too unwilling to change. I have been on numerous
mailing lists
and *none* ( absolutley none ) equals the quality and the happy times we
share here on the 61-79 list!
Fordanatics has 2, 3, sometimes more digests per day so traffic can be
enormous with mailing lists. I understand this!!
But, please, for the sake of the personality of the list - let it remain as
is!

I sure would hate to ruin such a great thing. Any other old timers out
there feel as I???
I have said all I will say, it is off to the ballot box I trudge!!!

VOTE FOR NUMBER 4!!!

Stu
Nuke GM! (and the list split idea ;^)

I completely agree with Stu. I believe that by splitting the lists, you
split alot of the knowledge base as well. I personally don't own a 61-66
truck at the moment (hehehe) but i have learned SO MUCH from people that
do, that i don't know what i would do without them. I am following Stu to
the voting booths, and VOTE 4!!!!!!!!

Oh, I misunderstood. You're proposing a truck "registry." That
is something that can definately be a positive. Perhaps I can
setup a form on the web site that will email entries to you? Would
this make it easy to compile?

Concerning the split, every now and then I get a cry from the
masses to split the 61-79 list (we started with only one list,
splitting is how we achieved the 8 we currently have). Putting
a vote on the web site takes care of the gripes. So far, no
majority vote. The last vote actually was a majority, but only
by 1 percent. I felt that this was too close a call. I think
at least 5 points are needed for a split. I think we also need
to have good representation, at least 10%. That means we need to
have about 85 votes in order for me to consider it a valid vote.
These guidelines are more restrictive than earlier votes, but we
have a larger group and I don't want a small (but vocal) minority
swaying the entire group.

I agree with Stu...I'd rather have the greater wealth of knowledge from a
slightly larger base without having to subscribe to multiple mailing lists.
The volume and workload on the listserv won't change, just the amount of
email that the subscribers get. I say, stop living off of freeware internet
software. If there is one piece of software you should splurge and buy,
it's a good email program that can filter your mail. I'm subscribed to
about 9 or 10 mailing lists right now, let alone any personal mail and am
now getting about 120+ messages a day. Granted if I don't get my email
quite regularly I could swamp my mailbox on my ISP but once I download onto
my machine, all my mail is sorted into different mailboxes for each list
I'm on. If I don't have time to dig through it all, I can easily find the
important stuff that I should look at right away. Plus if people are
descriptive with their message headers it's easy to trash the messages
about what kind of ashtray a 63 F100 should have if all you care about is
whether your 78 F150 should have a hood ornament or not.

My 2 cents...

John,
Pull a plug and check it the next time it happens. If it is wet and
dark, the mixture is too rich. The carb may be flooding or jetted
wrong. Check the compression also as someone has suggested. A rich
carb will run good when the engine is cold, as if it was choked. When
it heats up it will foul the plugs. Then the engine will run rough
until the plugs clear. Another place to look is the fuel pump. It may
be putting out excessive pressure when you are running(not at idle)
and flooding the carb by overpowering the float. The fuel pressure
should be 5-7 lbs. at all speeds.

Subject: Re: FTE 61-79 - Adding A/C to an F-250?

I just finished putting A/C on my 73 F-150 last year. I've pro-streeted the
truck out and didn't really feel like riding around in it sweating. I was at a
junk yard and found another truck with factory A/C. Purchased everything the
A/C and heater box, vents, duct work, dash, and the factory switches with
vacuum lines for $50. The condenser, compressor evaporator, heater core and
dryer you are better of to buy new if the system has ever been opened. The A/C
lines can be used but I had new ones made a little longer so they didn't run
over the top of the engine, they run across the firewall to the inner fender
and to the comprossor/condensor. The heater box will mount on the fire wall
fine except for the little recess from the old blower motor, a little thicker
sealing foam took care of this. The best thing I found out of this is that the
460(521 stroker) that is in my truck that the left bank spark plugs 2-3-4 are
hard to change with the heater box there. The box you can use as a to make a
templet to cut the hole in your fire wall just move it over away from the
motor toward the left inner fender(think I got almost 2" of extra room) and
everything will still hook up. Everything looks factory and works well and I
didn't really think it was much trouble as it looked like it would be. Hope
this helped?

I'm planning on doing this myself in the very near future, and I was

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 66 and/or 74 Power steering problems?

I've got a question/problem. I read that a 74 power steering gear box will
bolt up to my 66. So today I went to my local Advance Auto and priced one.
The 74 was priced at $155 with a $70 core. The 66 was $299 with a $170
core. The counter man told me his part book showed the 66 being used in
also the 67, 70, 72 and that was it. 68 and 69 were the same. As was 71,
73, and 74.

My problem lies in, if the gear boxes are the same, then why the double in
the price between the two. The 74 was in stock but the 66 would have to be
ordered.

Now I've already got a gear box that I bought three years ago from one of
the individual vendors at the Supernationals. The only difference I could
see between the box I have and the 74 box is some casting flash. Is there
any way I can tell what year my gear box is?

Thanks,

I just replaced the whole dash but as far as I remember the vent holes are
just square. You might be able to cut them out I can look at another dash I
have tomorrow and see. Anything else???????

I've got a 79 Chateau Van and they are the same.

I do have a black passenger door armrest 68-72 available for sale if
anyone wants it. I could send a picture if interested. Email me
privately and I can give you the part #.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - carbs, overheating

I have the 625 Carter AFB that has been discussed, the noise from the
secondaries is due to the weighted butterfly valves that are supposed to
open in response to airflow (hope your choke is open all the way, ask me
how i know.......). Excellent carb for tuning with the array of
metering rods you can change in 5 minutes, also spring poundage for
altering response.
My '78 has the same problem with the gauge having a mind of its own,
actual engine temperature is rock steady(thermometer test on radiator),
even as gauge wanders up and down.
Would a rear disk conversion set require a revamp of the proportioning
valve?
For the discussion on windsor block pulleys; why not just find a donor
motor and use the whole set,including brackets? I did this on mine to
allow me to reposition my coil to be mounted to first hole tapped into
head. This gives me better access to distributor bolt and carb
adjusting screws.
Why are the heater hose barbs steel?, replaced mine with brass barb
fitting(no corrosion).

Sorry about shouting but it was my first time on the list, so forgive me.

not necessary to know anything but it was being throne in my direction.
