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

This reminds me of the look I saw on two faces in a mid 70's F series
truck...

I first noticed the truck on the freeway exit at high speed in the rain
when all of a sudden the truck does a clockwise 360 with stuff flying out
the back, then the driver almost recovers but oversteers and they begin
their counterclockwise 360 (still at high speed) which the driver recovered
from quite nicely. When they finally came to a stop, I got a real close look
at them and I'll never forget that look on their faces. These two people
were very lucky because the exit wasn't very wide and it had 2 curves which
worked out quite nicely for them.

A quick check of the FTE site and the tech articles will reveal that you
can go to your local Ford dealer and pick up all the parts to put that in
your truck. Ford was nice enough to keep the parts the same up through at
least 91 (we have one, I assume it goes up through 96 if not newer) .... I
have a switch, but haven't had the time to mosey down and get the control
box for my truck, but the plugs are indeed the same, I checked when I fixed
my sister's.

I'm not sure I know what type of wheels you are talking about ... it sounds
like the hubcaps on my dad's and sister's trucks ...(see
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://ranger3.cc.iastate.edu/Images/autocross/autocross023.jpg I know its
not a great picture, but its a pic) Those hubcaps you can get at a local
parts store, they may have to order in the 8 lugs though ...

If you are talking about different wheels, just be sure you get them with 8
holes and not 7 and I think you should be okay ...

A while back there was a discussion about separating the signal lights
from the brakelights. Well my curiosity finally got the better of me and I
modified my truck. I now have brakelights/running lights on the top, then
signal lights in the middle and finally reverse lights at the bottom.
It took me about 2 hours to do and cost me less than 10 bucks. If anyone
is interested in trying this let me know. It is quite simple to do and I
think it looks and works much better.

Hey Danger,

Struck by the FE fuel pump deal.....I've had to have my truck towed twice in
21 years, both times because of fuel pumps. I carried a spare with me for
about 15 years.....and happened to not have it with me the time I needed
it....these weren't cheapo fuel pumps, either. One was a brand new Holley.....

Anyway, I've finally decide to say "uncle" and will be putting on an electric
unit this time around. I'm thinking it will mount inside the frame near where
the outlet comes through the floor from the tank (a 69, behind the seat). I
will put a filter just ahead of the pump, and just after my fuel tank switch,
(I have three tanks total, roughly 60 gallon capacity)....

See you in SLC in a couple of weeks....

From: am14 daimlerchrysler.com
Subject: FTE 61-79 - FE's and oil consumption

All you folks talking about replacing your valve seals and still consuming large
quantities of oil, this is something for you to study about.

All FE's I've been around are notorious for wearing the valve guides.....
Especially those that have a high lift cam and stiffer than factory valve
springs. The only way I found to "Cure" the problem back when I was racing
them, was to have Bronze valve guides installed, and this was very expensive
then and probably cost Megga bucks by now. (this was in the very early 70's or
maybe the very late 60's) I had a set of '67 427 heads on my 428SCJ and I had
them done. Can't remember the exact cost, but seems like it was about $40 per
guide. That works out to be $640 for a set, and seems to be about what it cost
me. This did not include any valves - just guides and the work to install them
and ream them to size.

Let me also say that even though I've seen some pretty sloppy valve to valve
guide clearances, I've never known this to really cause oil consumption in the
amounts you guys seem to be experiencing. The seals always did a good job of
controling this for me, even on some pretty sloppy clearances. On the FE's I
would look elsewhere for excessive oil consumption.

Just something for all of you to ponder.

Hi
I'd like to see your diagram too, Sparky. By the way, does anyone know if
the new strobe-like turn signals used on transit buses can be used with the
wiring on our trucks?
Also, I could use some expert advice regarding an intake manifold I found
lying on the street. It's for an FE, #C8OE-9425-G. It is about 2" taller
than the one on the '75 truck 390 in my '66. (Taller at the runners, not at
the carb flange.) Is it unusual or is the truck manifold very low in
comparison to the pass car version?

Subject: FTE 61-79 - smoking Joe Camel

>>As I understand the theory you want warm fuel so it vaporizes
better,

You are correct, Sparky. Gasoline has to vapor or it will not burn. If you
vaporize it too early in the delivery system, not only do you get vapor
lock, but you may very well get an unwanted explosion. If you vapor it too
much in the cylinder, you will melt your engine. My little brother turboed
his Bu#ck (there's the B word again) LeSabre one too many times too close
together and melted two pistons. Too much air, too big of a bang. Ideally
the gasoline should not vapor to the desired state until it is inside the
cylinder and the intake valve is closed. A carb and/or fuel injection only
atomizes the gasoline in to very fine drops, not quite a vapor. This also
dramatically increases the surface area of the liquid allowing it to vapor
more easily, which some does immediately. I think one reason my 351M
performs as well as it does is because I have the original air cleaner
complete with functional cold air ram from in front of the radiator.

Be sure you are on number 1 cylinder with the timing light. Some are right

if you get too far off on the timing, it won't run.

You can put yourself down as a leinholder and the lean could be
anything you want. Technical "owner" can't do anything with it until the
lean is satified.

Personally, if it comes to that extreme, I was thinking of buying some
cheap land out in the middle of nowhere and make it my second home.
Someone who has a second home in Ca. and lives on the east coast must
not have to reg. their Ca. car back on the east coast if that car stays
in Ca. Any comments on dual residences and registration?

Before you can fix the leak you must locate it. A small mirror and a
bright flashlight would help you discover the location of the leak. There is
also a compound that you mix with your oil that will glow when lit with a
black light which would illuminate your problem area.

If you find some cheap land in CA, Let me know, I'll go buy it.
Or, were you talkin' Canada :-)

My Brother-In-Law tried to get his D****e truck smogged here, he
couldn't find all the pieces, so he just maintains a PO box up in
Oregon. Not legal, if a cop notices your out-of-state plates
repeatedly he may tag you, but not likely. I recall the DMV had a
"rat on your neighbor" campaign a few years back, but haven't heard
anything lately. The CHP can get VERY picky with trucks, however.
An out of state truck with non-commercial plates is subject to a
large fine for carrying even a 2x4.

The previous owner of my 69 F250 put a 360 flywheel and clutch on a 4

The 'strobe-like' turn signals you refer to are LEDs. They definitely can
be used with our wiring, if you can afford the $50+ ea. price. Also, big
rig drivers steal them from each other regularly, according to an informed
source.

I have seen round and oblong ones for sale somewhere.

..........

I would begin by spraying penetrating oil on the bolts and then try
removing the nuts with socket and breaker bar or impact (heating the nut
with small torch helps). For the bolts that spin, I would then make the two
parallel cuts necessary with a mini die grinder and cut-off wheel to get a
wrench onto the head of the bolt and try removing the nut again (assistant
will be needed). As a last resort, I would grind the heads off and punch the
bolt through from the top with a large hammer.

I've never tried a cutting torch but a skilled operator could probably
cut the bolts off without damaging the frame.

If the bolts are rusted in that long, try WD40 and a breaker bar. I think
the rust is going to kill that idea. Most likely the bolts will round out,
and you're stuck. Try tapping the center of the bolt with a punch, drilling
in the center and using a correct screw/bolt extractor. Don't forget the
WD40 first. Spray it on heavy a day ahead and again a couple of hours before
you attempt surgery. Second idea, use cutoff wheels on a Dremel. Double
them up and cut. The doubling strenghtens them. If you do this, wear eye
protection. If those wheels shatter you'll have hell to pay.

Not a problem in my case, I wheel my truck once every 4-6 weeks,
otherwise, it would be hidden from view off the street.

Yep; all the specs I've seen, show that T-19s don't have a granny. Which
is fine by me. Don't want a granny, don't need a granny. Even when I
drove big trucks years ago, I almost never, ever used the 1st gear,

need, which is why I was looking for a T-19.

But; I'm ready to give up, cause I'm not ready to spend $1200 on one.
I'll just see about rebuilding my NP435, or look for a used one. They
are very rare. Call the junk yards, and their response is pretty quick,

As far as I know, the major concern was misalignment of oil passages,
specifically the pump to block passage. I've never had to tear into an
FE motor, so I don't know first hand. I imagine someone on the list has,
though. I seem to remember that the block to crank bearings didn't line

The engine codes I've found are mostly under the intake manifold ... not a
fun job ... how about checking the heads and see what those say on them ?
Also check for the 352 cast into the block. If its a later truck motor its
likely got a mirrored 105 near the waterpump.

on roads so vehicles are virtually rust free. Good luck on yer hunt.
