I once heard this discussed on "Click and Clack" on NPR. I seem to only
listen to NPR on long car trips, but anyway, one caller asked about
radiator fixes. He said his father told him to crack and egg into the
radiator. He did, and it stopped the leak -- for a few hundred miles. I
forget what kind of car it was, but they said they didn't want to spend
money to fix it, so they just feed it a steady diet of eggs! I wouldn't
want to see (or smell) the muck that comes out during a coolant change.
*Augh* Click and Clack (whatever their names are) made jokes about
sticking a few pieces of bacon on the radiator so that he could have
breakfast ready by the time he got to work. :) They agreed that they had
heard of this shady fix before. Heck, I can't keep my high-tech radiator
epoxy from blowing out, I don't know how eggs would last in there. :)

Good call, Wish! Looks like Robert Brown is back again. His posts are
unmistakable. Unfortunately, this time he's just plain wrong, too. As
others have mentioned, the Club Wagon is a van -- the passenger version of
the Econoline, and still around today. I guess Robert's not the "Ford Man"
he'd like to be. ;)

Calling the Club Wagon a "Falcon" was part of Ford's marketing scheme in
the 60s. The Falcons were marketed as friendly economy vehicles, and the
top trim level Club Wagons received "Falcon" badges instead of "Econoline".
I just found out recently that there were actually some Econoline pickups
that left the factory labeled as Falcons, but they are not common.

As for the side trim, it might very well be stainless steel. You're
probably right that a good trim shop will be able to take the dents out and
make them look like new. I'm sure it's not cheap! I also know there is a
book devoted just to trim restoration, but I once tried to straighten out a
taillight bezel, and even though I've relatively crafty, it didn't look
much better when I was done! :) I guess that's why the pros get the big
bucks.

.............

I believe the items needed to convert to power steering are...

1) power steering gearbox
2) power steering pump
3) hoses that connect pump to gearbox
4) mounting brackets for pump
5) crankshaft pulley which lines up with ps pump pulley
6) power steering column shaft (approx 1/4" difference in length compared to
manual shaft)

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Re:Dura-Spark Mallory

I use a Mallory Unilite conversion and Mallory coil in
my stock dist.('71 351C-4V). It works fine, never had
any problem with it. I might have gone to Dura-spark
but to my knowledge they are not available for early
Clevelands. I think the advantage of the Dura-spark is
the larger terminal spacing on the cap, this allows
for higher voltages. If someone handed me a free
dura-spark dist. for my engine today, I would put it
in my parts bin as a backup, because "if its not broke
don't fix it."
