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

I've been watching the thread on T-cases and was wondering if there is a
way to ID the case by looking at an external item other than the shift knob.

When I had my T-18 rebuilt, The original shifter and knob where no
longer available so I ended up buying one for a later model (T-19?) which
showed reverse in the wrong place. The service tech that rebuilt the rear
end did a great job, but he couldn't get the truck out of the garage... hehe

Hmmm, hadn't considered the possibility of different ratio gearing in the
box. Driving to work today was a little better now that I'm starting to get
used to having to keep a firm grip on the wheel! I won't be don't the lazy
two finger grip on the wheel when I'm out on the highway this weekend.

Sure was nice to be able to do a nice smooth turn into my parking spot
today. Last week I had to do a six point turn to park it without nailing my
co-workers brand new car...

:-) That's exactly what I do when I go to the scrap yard - look for any
trucks with the metal ones and snag them. Ford probably switched to plastic
when they realized they could save a nickle on every truck they made...

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 71 460

Need some advice -

I've found a 71 Lincoln Mark III with a 460 rated at 365 hp that I could
buy fairly reasonably. I'm considering buying it to swap into my 77
F150 that now has a 460. My truck motor is not in bad shape, but I
believe the Lincoln to be much more powerful. The car only has 80,000
miles on it and the motor is strong.

How much more powerful is this engine than the one in my truck. Would
the swap be worth the trouble, or could I spend a similar amount of
money and make my own engine as or more powerful?

As far as I know, 16.5's, and 16's are the same, except for the bead. (and
some manufactuer variences) I was gonna put 16's on Tweety when I got new
rims, but I figured I had a better tire selection with the 16.5. BTW, my
dads 75 F-250 with front and rear Dana 60's has 15s. A lil grinding of the
front calipers, and they fit just perfectly. I dont recommend an amateur do
this, as if you go to far, you will break the caliper in half the first time
yu step on em hard.

Well, chiltons is almost right :-)

The manual for my '70 F250 calls out for SAE 90 EP for 4x4
and P-series trucks, "Ford Steering Gear Grease, C3AZ-19578-A"
for all other F series with manaual steering.

Clifford always get good press. They
have been around for a long time and take 6s seriously.

You can also get 6-cyl parts from PAW, Performance Auto Warehouse. They are
the folks who have the jam-packed ads in the car magazines. The catalog is
about $5, but it's big -- about 2" thick and 1100+ pages. They are a good
source for engine rebuilding kits. Specifically for the 240-300, they have
the Offenhuaser intake manifolds. Of course, the catalog is filled with
tons of other fun stuff, too.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - '66 F-100 Interior Parts & Pieces and 16.5" tire stuff

Good info on timing gear/chain replacements, I gotta do that job very
soon, as son's getting tired of playing taxi for me to get to work and
back. Thanks! Does anyone out there have a pair of non-destroyed
armrests for my '66? Just curious, need a pair, lemme know what you
want for 'em + freight, k? On tire sizes... 7.00 x 16.5 is going to
most likely be available through Coker, not probable you'll find 'em in
an everyday tire shop. 8.75 x 16.5 has a lot of choices, many Firestone
10-ply (E Load Range), a 50K mile Bridgestone, Dunlop A/T, Michelin XPS
Rib, plus a great assortment of bias ply choices... going up to the 9.50
x 16.5, the same Bridgestone, Goodyear Wrangler Rib, Goodyear A/T are
some of what's available... Goodyear makes a pretty good assortment of
bias ply tires in 16.5 sizes as well. The place I've found to have the
broadest assortment of choices in truck tires has been Sears Automotive
and their affiliates, National Tire and Battery... if not in stock,
easily ordered and the selections are incredible. Plus, they'll "beat
the competition's price by 5%, or double the difference back" (except
with wholesalers like Tire Rack, Costco, and Base Exchanges) which is
not such a bad deal. For going with a 5-lug 16" rim, I'd personally
recommend Alcoa, except I'm not certain they're offering 5-lug bolt
patterns anymore. I put a set of aftermarket 16" rims on a '72 F-250 w/
dual piston calipers, and they didn't work. Next choice... didn't
work. Tried again... still rubbed. These were Z-Racing aluminum
choices... what we found that would fit were any of the chrome-plated
steel rims, from any company. If you're looking for stock, I'd go with
Coker... their freight is a little spendy, but they're reputable. For
conversion on the 16" tire sizes, the 215-85-16 was equivalent to the
7.50 x 16... it'll be what... oh, about 1/4" wider, maybe that much
taller than original. If you want wider than the 215 but want the same
height, go w/ the 225-75-16 but you'll sacrifice load range, as these
are predominantly in an 8 ply rather than the 10 ply the 85 series has.
In the 16.5 rim diameter, the 8.00 x 16.5 is equivalent to the
31x10.50x16.5 and makes available BF Goodrich A/T T/A's and Mudders as
well as other choices. Tire Rack offers a CD that will do tire size
comparisons, allowing input of wheel width and tire sizes, and giving
back height, width, and pics of what the tire will look like compared to
the rim it's on... Great thing to have access to :) Personally, I'm
liking the lowered look my F-100 has, running 255-60-15's on old 60's
era American Racing aluminum slotted mags... 'course around here, w/ the
lowboy rage, it just fits right in... er, once I get it back on the
road, that is! LOL!! Thanks all for all of the great info, btw... this
is a great list :)
