Subject: FTE 61-79 - Re: 361/391 FT/FE differences - Oh, oh

Last week I got the flu while at work so I stopped off and picked
up the Crist book so I wouldn't get bored at home. Pretty much
read it cover to cover. Very good

With all this new information I went out to look at my motor. Lo
and behold, I have the reversed 105. The oil pan was off so I was
able to identify (I think) the reinforcement ribbing on the main
bearing webs

The crankshaft itself has stamped into it C4AE-B which the book
says means a cast iron 427 crank. The B is stamped over an E and
there is an addtional smaller B stamped near the B.

The heads are D2TEAA. Aparently standard 390 heads.

Stu Varner wrote:

I assume this does not mean the bore in the intake manifold. I
guess I will have to pull the distributor and look. If I have a
standard distributor in a larger bore what would happen?

I like the sound of this. Aparently and FT block is 20 lbs
heavier though.

Couldn't hurt.

The Ford service manual lists as another difference the main
bearing journal diameter. 390 2.7484-2.7492, 391 2.47479-2.7487

I think this means if you use the right bearings for the crank
you are using you are OK but I am not sure. Is it so?

Anyone know of anything else I should be concerned about?

Had a problem like this on a 63 f100. If it didn't start after the first or
second crank it wouldn't start and battery would be down where it wouldn't
crank. Turn out the starter was pulling too many amps. Might do a amp check
even though you said you had a new starter.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - steering all over

I have a 77 F250 4x4 and the steering is loose. Looking from under the
hood, it's obvious the cause is the u-joint on the "coupling assembly"
- -ford part # 3B676. The joint is shot and looks like if there were any
bearings in it when it was new they aint there now. You can wiggle it
around pretty good with your hand. Ford wants over $400 for a new shaft,
they say the joint is not replaceable. My question is, has anyone
replaced this joint or the entire shaft? If I get one from the junkyard
it may be just as bad. Maybe there are some aftermarket options?

Subject: Re: FTE 61-79 - Rockers and Pistons

Yo Bill, et al:

Just a minor technical note about hypereutectic pistons.

The term "hypereutectic" refers to a characteristic of the aluminum alloy
used in the pistons. Most all pistons are made with an aluminum alloy that
contains silicon as a strengthening/hardening agent. The term "eutectic"
refers the silicon saturation point of the aluminum.

The United Engine and Machine Company (makers of Silv-O-Lite and Keith
Black pistons) has an excellent description of piston alloys on their web
site at: http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.kb-silvolite.com/page02.htm

You can also find some other interesting technical info about pistons and
piston designs if you go to the Technical Stuff links from the catalog
table of contents at: http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.kb-silvolite.com/1toc.htm

I am not affiliated w/ United Engine and Machine Company in any way.

Yo Ox:

The CARB executive order (EO#) exemption is applicable only to components
that can affect an engine's emissions. If an aftermarket component is
deemed to have no affect on emissions, there is no need for an EO.

Since the M-block engines (and 351C) were never equipped w/ an oxygen
sensor in the exhaust manifolds and all their Thermactor AIR plumbing was
internal to the intake manifold and cylinder heads, the exhaust manifolds
or replacement headers would not affect the engine's emissions.

Generally, the only headers that are restricted under CARB regulations are
those that eliminate some emissions control feature, such as headers w/ no
AIR tubes where AIR tubes were used on the OEM exhaust manifold.

The 385 series medium-duty truck engine was the 370. It had the 429 stroke
(3.59") and the FE bore (4.050"). Don't know anything else about them,
though.

Does it have the provision for the hot air intake. If not, it would
affect cold start emissions. On top of that, I imagine NJ taking the
absolute extreme side of everything, would require a CARB EO number for
anything to do with the engine.

I doubt that it will have provisions for hot air intake but those kits are
readily available from the aftermarket and I believe that Steve Delanty
built/modified one for his truck. BTW where the heck is Steve?

Sorry if I was ambiguous. I meant the aluminum trim that goes around each
of the windows on the top, not on the doors or the windshield; a total of
twelve pieces.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Emergency Brake foot peice

I don't really know how to explain this but here goes. My foot peice for my emergency brake is party broken so I found me another one to replace it with. The one off the donor truck came of pretty easily but not so for my truck. I got the acutal brake cable loose from the foot peice but now the metel peice around the top of the cable is too large to slide down through the hole on the bottom of the foot peice. What it amounts too is the cable will not pull out of the foot peice. Any ideas? It was a little dark so maybe I missed something holding it. I got the little clamp off but I can't see anything else holding it but it's size.
Also, I just got my 360/390 put in the truck a month of so ago. It has quite of blow by. I know I have seen something on this list about this. It had about 5000 miles on it when I put it in. So they said. My brother is the machine in the family and he was a little wearied about it. He wanted me to check the compress in it but haven't done that yet. What should the compression be?


Thanks a lot in advance,

If you have 2WD, go for the power steering. The low speed response is well
worth the change (i.e., parking in tight spots) Don't know about 4WD though..
