Subject: FTE 61-79 - eggs in the radiator

I remember a time when a friends Sc*ut was leaking bad from the radiator and
we stood in the Safeway parking lot with a 6-pack of eggs. You would drop
one in the radiator and it would just sit there on top, not wanting to drop
down in past the neck. So we just squeezed the upper hose and released and
it sucked them right in. We were laughing our butts off. This was
something his dad had told him to do. We put all six in and it stopped the
leak but not for long, he ended up just buying a new radiator. Thought I'd
share the story-Evan, you out there?

Duraspark didn't get the wider terminals til a little after they came
out....my 76 FE still has the small cap on it. Its my understanding though
that with the adapter and wide cap, you can put the big cap on any
distributor ... I've often wondered about putting it on the points ignition
to clean up the look, but decided to go with duraspark (if I ever get my

The place we have our stuff done (www.thechromeshop.com) is very nice about
this stuff, they even let us watch a little (as long as we stay out of the
way) ... because we know the owner he has offered to teach Dad how to do it
(or me, but I'm never around there much), he said all you need is some nice
small hammers and a lot of patience ... a long with a good buffer (or elbow

I think the patience is the key here ... that and practice.

I have used black pepper in a radiator in a pinch and i would
compare it to any of the stop leak that you can buy in a
auto parts store and it works great also if you ever get a bad cut
that you cant stop the bleeding it will work for that also it burns
a little but in an emergency it works great .

When I first bought my van, it was really abused. The previous owner
dropped it off at my apartment. Then I took it out for drive. I got about 2
miles, came to a stop sign, and the shifter would not engage into anything
but first gear. I tried wrestling with the linkage, but no luck. I drove
home in first gear. It hurt to hear everything working so hard, but I guess
I didn't have much choice.

Or there was the time that my friend's dad offered to let us drive his '73
Pantera. Whoo! He just threw the keys to my friend Stevie, who is a great
guy, but a reckless fool. He drove and I rode shotgun. Stevie opened it up,
even on city streets. He spun it around once and also hydroplaned while
entering the highway. It was a stressful trip for this passenger. We got
back and Dr. Reed asked if by chance we noticed a small red light in the
car. Stevie said that he did. Dr. Reed said that was the emergency brake
light, and did we actually drive the whole time with the e-brake on?
Stevie, the good guy that he is, said, "yes, I believe we did." Did I
forget to mention that we had the car up around 100 MPH on the highway?

Your brakes should be fine. They might be a bit glazed, but if they still
feel like they are stopping the truck OK, that's what matters. If you take
things apart, check the bearings. You might have heated the grease out of
them. I don't want to think about what damage might have been done to the
Pantera. We thanked him for letting us drive it, and he never said anything
bad about it.

Hello everyone,

The Falcon Delux Club Wagon was a van, it was one of the
first E-series vans Ford came out with and usually equiped with either a
170ci or a 200ci inline six cylinder engine. And to top it off they started
manufacturing them in 64.

A van is not a pickup as I recall. Maybe that's why it doesn't have a

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 o=

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

I was reading the new Summit catalog last night (drool). I sure would like
some Ford Motor Sport valve covers :-). I was looking at some harmonic
balancer covers and the description mentioned timing tape. I had forgotten
about this stuff. You should be able to find it at a parts house. It is a
strip of white tape that has your timing marks on it. All you have to do is
figure out how to line up TDC to zero. Some of the catalogs may sell it,
too. And the search begins.......

When a friend of mine and I tried to squeeze a 390 into a '66 Stang it was at
least 3" too wide and maybe more. The spring towers would have to be flattened

If this Mustang was manufactured after June of 1966, wouldn't it be

"H" model Farmall cranked up but hey, they both sound similar.

Man, I have never seen an inline six run as strong! Sounded like a Cessna
taking off when spooled up to around 3500 to 4000 rpm.

The first thing I got to experience was Tony's very own speed shop in his
back yard.
Summit Racing headquarters is just around the corner from Tony's house.
Pretty
neat to see all the fun, shiny toys!

We spent the morning and afternoon looking at Tony's baby, Amanda, a 1970
step side F-100 4x4
and his purpose built (Mr. FUN truck!!) 78 4x4 F-150. Then off to a buddy
of his where we looked at some more
neat Ford 4x4 stuff like Keith's 1972 F-250 4x4 with a closed knuckle
military version of a Dana 60 front which was a stock special order axle.
We are talking brutally Heavy Duty!!! (BTW-I want it) WOW!!
I picked up a few needed parts and then we took a trip through the 4x4
testing facility next to Keith's house
to see how well Tony's old 78 performs! Serious hill climbing and 4 wheeling.
Too much fun!! I respectfully declined Tony's invite to pilot her thorough
the trails.
Maybe next trip!!!

All in all it was a fun time and I thank you Tony for being so hospitable!

If you get a chance to stop by Tony's, I am sure he will give you the big show
like he did for me.

Don't have the foggiest... Not a bit familiar with any of the many different
transfer cases offered except the NP203 and the NP205. These I have dealt with
for a very long time and have even tried to do some mixing and matching for a
transfercase that could have the best of both, but to no avail. I would like
one that could have parttime or full time or all 4 locked together as selectable
by a shift lever('s), but I don't think that is about to happen.

Just to try and clear this one up , I'll quote a statement from a ford truck

extensively changed for 1967 and, thanks to an increased tread width, could
now accomodate the company's 390 cid V-8 engines ". Ford trucks since 1905

Uncle Azie, when are you going to get away from all those levers ... the
new expeditions have this, only its controlled with an electric dial on the
dash, just rotate it around to whichever you want and the computer does it
all for you ....

:)

Yeah, I know, nothin like the feel of those gears meshing to let you know
its in there ...
Could you install an ARB air locker in the differential on the 203 and get
that to work somehow ? I would think that would be your best bet ...
though automatic hubs combined with a separate switch would do the trick
too, only problem is you couldn't stop the front drive shaft, just disable
the hubs ... it would act like you wanted, just wouldn't quite be it ...

It would depend on the Vin number, if the Vin was 7C7 or something similar,
then yes, it would be a 67, it would also look quite different from a 66
... I'm not sure what month the changeover was that year, but its possible
for June to be a very late 66 ... 99 production this year didn't start
until november of 98, so its possible to get a 98 that was made in late
sept./early oct.!

There's nothing that says they have to be made at a certain time to be
certain years ... at least not as far as I know ... the 97 Pickups were
introduced in early january of 96 when the bodystyle was changed ... I
would think that would make the 96's a bit on the tough side to find since
lots of people got the 97's instead ...

Can't help you out too much, but on my truck (74 F150 4x4) the wheel wells
are about 35" from the ground ... I'd guess an F250 would be about an inch
more than that, maybe 2 if it was a camper special. the camper special was
available that year I think, but I can't say for sure with 4x4 ...

Nope only the 250's are highboys as far as I know ... and its a married 203
on the truck, so its pretty low :) My dad and sister both have newer 3/4
tons, one HD, one LD and they sit about an inch or so higher than mine ...
enough that Dad wants the running boards left on his anyway :)

From: "Jeff Carver"
Subject: FTE 61-79 - '64 F100 Wheels & Tires

After searching and checking into this subject,
it appears that using the original 6x16 wheels
with modern radials is NOT a good idea. They
may fit and work for awhile, but how long that
'while' continues is unknown. Modern radials
are a lot stronger than the old rims and after
awhile the rims wears out and falls apart. Any
body have an experience to share?

So after some looking, Gennie wheels offers one
that is designed to look like the originals.
I can get them locally for about $72 each, and
through Coker tire, and RallyeTire too. I haven't
found a direct line to Gennie. Anyone out there
have a direct connection to them?

If you have a set of these rims please report
on them. They are supposed to be such that
the original hubcaps can be fitted too, great
since I have all four still. Any photo's?

Any sources for the Gennie brand cheaper?

Any suggestions on a tire? I'm thinking on a
215 85 16 radial. I want to keep the look as
original as possible, and don't want to mess
the suspension geometry.

Did a '64 F100 originally come with whitewalls?

16's were the original size, and I have three
of the original rims, the spare is still painted
the original white. I'll keep them around just
for yucks and grins. The other two are 7x16.
If you want to see what's there now, check out
the pictorial at FTE's website.

From: Ken Payne
Subject: FTE 61-79 - ADMIN: The FAQs

Concerning the Econoline and Mustang discussions:

A. Econolines
- -------------
From the FAQ on the web site:
21. What vehicles are covered?

All F-series pickups, E-series vans, Rangers, Broncos, Bronco IIs,
Rancheros, Explorers, Expeditions, Falcon UTEs, Econolines, pre-F
series pickups and Aerostars. In addition, Mercury and Lincoln
trucks and SUVs are allowed.

B. Mustangs
- -----------
From the FAQ on the web site:
Under item 20, What is Definitely Not Allowed?

No blatantly off topic posts. Questions about your brother's Tempo
belong on Fordnatics, not Ford Truck Enthusiasts.

Lastly, flaming someone for being off topic, causes others to
flame the flamer and others the flame the second flamer for playing
list cop, and then others point out the hypocrisy of the third
flamer, etc. If you have a problem with a thread, please inform
me or contact the person privately.

And a lot of time and posts are being wasted by children trying to take
over the autority of the newsgroup administrator. Grow up, or get out.

Truck content- my buddy has a flatbed, I guess since he doesn't have a
tailgate according to Bobby, he no longer has a truck, right guys?

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Transportation Services

Okay guys....I just bought a '53 Ford F100 Flareside. Dang thing is in Fl
and I'm in NC and need to get it here. I've called some fleet carriers for
quotes and will probably go that way, but I know a few of you are on the
road a lot with you car trailers and was just wondering if anyone could help
me out?

If you can, please post to me off the list.

Thanks,

Can't help you out too much, but on my truck (74 F150 4x4) the wheel wells
are about 35" from the ground ... I'd guess an F250 would be about an inch
more than that, maybe 2 if it was a camper special. the camper special was
available that year I think, but I can't say for sure with 4x4 ...
