I usually only get that way about something after a clutch job where I
dropped the tranny on my hand or something, but then I change my mind
and I keep it. Every Ford truck I've ever sold, I've regretted it. I
once had a black and white two-tone '61 F250 Custom Cab with the
original 292 and T-98 4 speed. It had the cab and bed made in one
piece, a really rare F250, since they started using the seperate '57-'60
bed either late in the '61 model run, or early in '62 and through '63 on
the F250's. I wish I had that one back, it even had a white factory
shift knob...:-)

Think of it this way, you can go through your truck from stem to stern
and still not spend as much as what a lot of folks are paying for an 18
month old off-lease Escort. The truck won't depreciate, the Escort
will. In the 60 months it takes to pay off the Escort, you've payed
nearly twice again in interest what you bought the car for, and it's
worth half as much as what you paid for it. People do this every day,
and don't give it any thought. I think it should be illegal, but it's
not my business. I wish I could get into a business like it, I'd own
one of every Ford truck ever made, and a '61 Starliner with a 427
SOHC...

What I did while fixing up my '65 is; I borrowed $2500 10% at my bank,
to buy it, and did the elbow grease, get it running, cheap to do stuff,
and drove it while I bided my time. After a few months of paying on it
I went back and borrowed back up to $2500 and started the note again. I
put this into some of the other things it needed(though some of it went
for new carpet for the house). Soon I plan to borrow on it again to
build an engine for it. It can be done, all you need to do is have a
decent banker. Please be patient, Rome wasn't built in a day
either...:-)

>>some motors tend to run real lean when the gas is closed all the way and
they are pulled by the transmission. That;s why they add these throttle
solenoids.

Actually, Bas, the solenoid is to prevent deiseling when you shut the engine
off. The little spring loaded thingy that lets your gas pedal go back gently
instead of all at once is called a dashpot. Although they look similar,
their function is quite different.

Hehehe ... I can just imagine a truck pullin a mobile home :)

Actually on the interstate the other day I saw a huuuuge gooseneck/5th
wheel trailer (didn't look close enough to distinguish) bein pulled by a
73-77 Supercab ... I thought it was kinda cool to see a truck that old
pullin a new trailer at interstate speeds ... even through some "hills" ...
as we caught up and passed him (I was in a 'stang afterall :) I noticed it
was an F150 ... I bet not too many people caught that one, but it was doin
the work that is usually reserved for new 3/4 and 1 tons ...

The only other experiences I really have are snow related ... there was an
85ish Buick LeSabre that managed to high center itself in a drift ...
unfortunately it was in the middle of the drift so you had to get into it
to get them out ... took us 10 minutes to find anything to pull on 'cause
she'd stuck it so bad ... that one locked my xfer case in low and had to
take it to the dealer to get it out, but we got her drug off of that snow
bank ... man those cars are heavy when they don't have any wheels touching
the ground ...

The other one was just naieve freshmen ... a kid needed his car jumpstarted
after 18" of snow fell in one day ... well with the plows and such going
through there was quite a pile in front of his car ... I just drove in next
to him and up onto the pile a ways so that we could hook up the jumper
cables ... after that no one who lived on my floor ever questioned whether
my truck could do what I said or not :)


hehehehe .... those guys still ask me about it every time they see it ...
it may be an ugly green to some, but it always came through in a pinch :)

Be sure you rev it up a couple times and get the motor loaded good, that

Some of the cars at the Goodguys show had this, one or two were even fuel

Actually, Ian, this makes sense. However, I would wager that you can't put a
77 in an 85 and only meet 77 standards. This also sounds like a "varies from
state to state" law. Strict interpretation of the federal law is that you
can not change anything to do with the emissions system other than replace
nonfunctioning parts with parts that function. That means if you take a 351M
out, you put a 351M back.

The nice thing about fixing an old vehicle vs buying new is that when you
want to buy something else you can just hold off on the truck for awhile.
Can't do that with a new truck payments...
I am glad to hear you are keeping it. Once you get it fixed up you will be
so glad you kept it!

That's what I was going to do but Mike seemed to think that it would

I don't know, the temp and oil gauges read quite high with this setup.
Maybe it needs more like 4v. In any case at least it's steady now so I
have a real benchmark to look at, especially since it's summer, I drive
fast, have a rotted radiator, haul heavy loads, use the ac a lot (ca),
and have and automatic. That thing was giving me fits before when
really nothing was wrong.

In my opinion, it's just an easy way to get the water from the heads
into a central location for the thermostat. That water really doesn't
contact anything like the fuel/air mix or the carburetor enough to cause
any difference, since it's up in the front. I know a guy who has a '64
D*dge bus that has a water heated carb spacer for that, with hoses going
into it. Also the exhaust crossover does that function.

I got an engine switching fact sheet from the EPA. It states.

For light duty vehicles, installation of a light duty engine into a
different light-duty vehicle (by a party named in section 203 (a)(3) of
the Act), would be considered tampering unless the resulting vehicle is
identical (with reagrd to all emission related parts, engine design
parameters, and engine calibrations) to a certified configuration of the
same or newer model year as the vehicle chassis, or if there is a
reasonable basis for knowing that emissions are not adversely affected
as described in Memo 1A. The appropriate source for technical
information regarding the certified configuration of a vehicle of a
particular model year is the vehicle manufacturer.

I don't have Memo 1A yet :-( I'm guessing memo 1A allows for "proper
emission testing according to the Federal Test Procedure", which is what
the aftermarket does to get CARB approval. It also mentiones
engine/chassis certified configurations. 2WD F-250's and broncos are
pretty close, but a 460 in a Bronco would not be a certified
engine/chassis confiuration, although a 400 would. I would also think
that if you could prove you had the same engine/trans, rear-end gearing,
approx weight, exh type and ALL the emission components that came on the
460 you were looking at, that it might make for a (this was also
written in part of the document) "reasonable basis for knowing that
emissions are not affected".

Interesting you mention the pine needles. My heater was almost empty but
a friend of mine had a rat (or mouse, not sure) nest in his and it almost
caught fire, started smoking etc, hahahah. Anothr friend also had this
with plain leaves, he said he had to open his window to see anything,
the whole cab filled with smoke. He showed me later, smelt like a brush fire.

It is not really FTE related but I once ran my outboard motor without oil
for about half an hour :) then it started running slower and slower and
when I checked it out I found my mistake. No damage! (other than some

hahah, yeah I did something like that too once. There was about 6" of
snow and I was driving on a little dirt road on the side of a mountain,

I know this isn't Ford related, and I apologize for using the bandwidth. But
it seems I remember someone on the list mentioning a couple of months ago
that they had a low-mileage Motoguzzi motorcycle for sale. Maybe in Texas?
Please reply off list. Thanks.

Now for the Ford-related subject: I just had some work done on my truck,
i.e. carb rebuilt, valves adjusted, and valve cover gaskets replaced. While
it was open, I asked the mechanic to replace the valve stem seals since they
had never been replaced and the truck is 28 years old. He replaced them even
though the old seals were still soft and pliable and appeared to be in good
shape. The truck only has 36,000 miles on the original engine. Since the
seal change, my truck smokes like a diesel, like it has bad rings and is
burning a lot of oil. It did not smoke before the seals were replaced. I
took it back to the mechanic and he is in the process or redoing the seals.
Could it be anything else? Seems to me the oil is getting past the seals and
into the cylinders. Any other ideas? Thanks.

A few years back, a guy I know was moving from Montreal to Toronto. He

stuff. His 85 F350 supercab 4x4 6.9 diesel (33" tires, lift kit etc.)
was following with a full box of stuff being moved as well. About 3
hours into the 5 hour trip, the bus engine gave up the ghost on the side
of the highway. Not to be stopped, out comes the tow bar and soon the
bus is being towed by the F350. The only comments this guy made where;
"I didn't feel safe going faster than 55 pulling the bus, but I could
smoke all 4 tires any time I wanted." I thought this was a bunch of bull
until I rode with him from Toronto to Montreal in the F350, after that
I'll believe any story about him and his vehicles.

Roy,

This sounds like a misalignment of the input shaft (on which the clutch disk
rides), and the flywheel/crank centerline. Are there any dowel pins in the
block or bellhousing which might not be seated completely?

I have seen this where an adaptor plate was slightly bent, causing the
center section of the disk to constantly flex to allow the disk to be
clamped to the flywheel by the pressure plate. Kind of a u-joint action,
without the u-joint. Chattered, and broke the center section out in a few
hundred miles.

Just a shot in the dark,

Steve

I looked up the 65 Econoline in the MPC for 65/72 and it seems that there are
10" and 11" clutches that were installed in that year. The flywheel assembly
for the 240 with 11" clutch is part No. C7TE-B and has a 164 tooth. This
assembly was used for both 240's and 300's in other vehicles, but not the
E100/300. The 10" clutch flywheel was also just used with the 240's. That
part no. is C8TZ-6375-A. It is also has the 164 tooth ring gear.

The problem you might be having is that you mixed and matched
components from your old engine and the newer 80's 300. I would think that
as long as you stuck with the 240 bell, flywheel, clutch and starter you
should be fine. You might want to verify that you have all of the same
components on the 300.
I hope this helps.

cooler fuel burns better, exhaust heat goes through the intake on most stock
engines, for hi perf use most people fill in these heat passages, and also
use a pan under the intake to keep hot oil from getting to the intake. using
a fuel cool can also helps, and at the drag strip some people pack the intake
with ice just before making a pass. of course there is no need to do this on
alcohol burning engines, since they run so cold anyway.

Hi.

There is only 2 things when it comes to spark.... you need a half of an
inch of spark out in free air, and you need it at the right time and
cylinder.

If those are correct and cut out the carb, pour a table spoon of gas down
the intake, and try to start. If it doesn't fire at all, there is probably
little compression or timing chain has jumped a lot on the gears.

of nothing about the cool cans etc. i thought you wanted to know the purpose
of cooling the fuel.

tell them the truck is a 79 f250 with a 460 and you converted it from a 2wd

It is not really FTE related but I once ran my outboard motor without oil
for about half an hour :) then it started running slower and slower and
when I checked it out I found my mistake. No damage! (other than some
accelerated lifetime, probably)
>>
After installing a new distributor a friend of mine ran his 79 E-350 460 10
miles round trip to an appointment without the oil pump shaft in place.
Discovered the problem when he got back home and engine lost power. Pump
shaft installed and no discernible damage.

I take it you have no spark?? What did you do when you checked the points?
Does the distributor rotate? If not the timing chain is likely at fault.
Just my experience and opinion, but coil failure usually does not occur that
quick. Generally they develop a weak spark and cause hard starting. Good
Luck

Subject: FTE 61-79 - door cups needed 78-79/ question about super cab

HELP, i need two sets of door cups for 78-79 i believe 73-79 will work, i
prefer to have metal cups, a nice set of blue panels would be nice also, if
anyone has any laying around or if anyone sees any in a bone yard keep me in
mind.

also does anyone know if a 78-79 extended can with a short box has the same
wheel base as a regular cab with a long box?

Subject: Re: FTE 61-79 - Pitman Arm

Besides heating with a torch . That is if you don't have one , you can snug
the puller up pretty tight and then smack the arm with a hammer where it is
attatched to the shaft . This will send a shock wave through the metal and
break it loose . I have always had good luck doing this . Heating anything
with a torch right now doesn't appeal to me because of the heat wave !

I always thought the air was what you wanted cooler, not the fuel. Hence
the theory behind nitrous packing an extra air molecule, etc. I could be
wrong, though.
