This was interesting to me too. The 352 had been available since 1958.
However, the 1965 Model year was the first year it was "officially" put into
trucks at the factory. How does the engine mount bolt up to the
engine (2 or 3 bolts)? Are there any casting numbers on your engine? If you
send me your VIN Plate Data I will decode it for you and see if the engine
can be documented as a factory option. Obviously the engineers stuffed some
352's into trucks before Ford decided to run production. Wouldn't it be neat
if you had some sort of Limited Production 64 test model?

Since we are on the subject of Deisels, I have one for anyone who might

Powerstroke. Since Im not sure when the oil was last changed, I was wanting
to do that right away. I found a list of approved oils & filters for this

Motorcraft filter & both "Shell Rotella" and the "Chevron" brands of 15w40

Before I'd rebuild a regular rear end (or have it done for me), I'd make
an effort to upgrade to a limited slip. It would be a crying shame to have
your truck which has been upgraded to power disc brakes, power steering, and
air conditioning get stuck (with only one wheel spinning) because you didn't
upgrade the rear differential.

>>I was under the empression that if one did a body off frame restoration you

Is this right or wrong ?

In Texas, you are not supposed to tamper with the odometer, period. If a
vehicle is under a certain age, I think 10 years, you have to affix a
sticker stating that the odometer has been repaired. After 10 years a
vehicle is exempt from mileage certification on resale so in reality you
could do what you want. Personally, I like the idea of a frame off going to
zero.

Welcome back, Garry. My truck has a 2.75 rear ratio and turns just under 2K

firewood, etc. It has always done the job without complaint. I get about 11
mpg in town and 16+ on the freeway. I still have plenty of giddyup, too. I
can't offer any technical advice, but performance wise, it should be a good

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Chain Reaction & Remanufactured Parts

A short time ago, I had a problem with the right front brake pulling on
my 69 F250 which I had previously converted to power disc brakes using all
new parts. The problem was easily solved by replacing the new caliper (lower
piston was sticking). After using my new power brake bleeder, I took the
truck in for state safety & emissions testing and the results showed a
difference of "-0.6%" in the left right balance of the front brakes so I
figured my problems are all solved.
Unfortunately the high heat of the hub caused by the faulty caliper has
burnt/melted the high temp front disc brake grease off of the bearings
because I'm now hearing a very faint squeak/chirp. I've popped the cap off
of the rotor and noticed the grease is burnt black where it touches the hub.
Looks like I'm going to be replacing the bearings today.

Sometimes I wonder about the value of remanufactured parts as one faulty
item can and usually does cause damage to other related items which are not
covered by the "lifetime" warranty. I had just done an oil change when the
fuel pump malfunctioned and forced me to change the oil again,... do you
think I would have been compensated if the engine blew up due to a faulty
fuel pump?... NOT

I'm going to have nightmares about the parts clerk saying "here's your
replacement water pump sir, sorry about the last one ruining your brand new
engine".

I dunno about that John. Consider the wide range of what could be
considered a "frame off resto". I think its much more accurate to give
the "mileage" as best as you can estimate it, and then add that you
did the resto (and here are the receipts of everything done) at such
and such mileage.

Its nice to know about how many miles a truck has on it, but that is
just part of what I use when evaluating a truck's "state".

I have been checking local tire stores for some
6.50-16 6PR bias ply tires for my '64 CrewCab.
I thought it would be a snap. Wrong!

Anybody have any recommendations of a brand that
actually carries and old style tire like this?

I saw a similar vintage restored St*d*b*k*r truck
with a set of 6.50-16's with huge whitewalls,
but they cost about $125 each!

I just want basic decent highway tires, in the
right size. Thin whitewalls would be nice, but
not required. I've tried various tire sites
on the web with little luck. I am hoping that
someone out there in FTE land has some real
information.

Oh yeah, the shop quotedme $92 each for the front
brake cylinders! Anybody have a different price?
I'm not objecting in spending money to stop well,
I would be nice to have a decent price.

Jeff:
That price may not be too far out of line if your getting NOS Ford
stuff. However, you should be able to get reman/aftermarket stuff much
cheaper. For instance Autokrafters has a front cylinder for a 65-67 at 37.95
each. The catalog I have doesn't list a 64 2wd application, but you might
call them. A 1997 Mac's Antique Auto catalog has them for 39.95. Shop
around these are only two of many suppliers out there. I hope this helps and
let me know if you need any further info.

My failing memory recalls a discussion here a while

only fit one application and were expensive. But,
call around to see what you can come up with. If

I need to reduce the wear on the engine and hopefully improve fuel

I was told to consider 2.7 or 2.9 rear end.. I do not pull anything with
this truck and as of now do not plan on it. However, I know there will
always be a first time. I have found a guy here in Louisville Ky who
will do the work for approx 300.00 including parts.

If you have the Ford 9" (and that should be what came in yours), then you can
just about swap in any other 9" whether it be car or truck. Only thing you have
to watch out for is the # of splines your axles have and get a rear chunk (the
removable center section) with the same # of splines in the gears that drive the
axles. They came in the later model big cars(that still used the 9") in ratios
down numerically to 2.4 and maybe lower. You can buy those things around here
for $50.00 all day. The 2.7 and 2.9 are probably the most popular in later
years of the 9", so shouldn't be a problem to find.

I'd think $300.00 for swapping out a center section would be awfully high. I can
do it in less than 2 hours with hand tools....... Now if he is going to furnish
NEW gears, and set it up, he is close...

There is no problem in driving an NP 205 in 2wd on pavement, but you are only
asking for trouble if you drive it on pavement in 4wd. There is no differential
action in it and it will certainly bind. You might get by doing it on occasion,

don't know what you have or anything, but I'm awfully curious about your truck.

Sam,

This web site offers books - http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.hollander-auto-parts.com/

That have interchangeable parts. I have not used these books, but if they
contain the info as advertised, they could be very useful. Has anyone ever
used these?

I am thnking of putting together a page with interchange information.

An example is my need for new drums for the '65. drums for a newer truck are
half the cost. I want to find out why and how to swap to the less costly
items. when I do that would be the kind of info I want to put up there.

So, if you have know of any newer, cheaper, better, or easier to aquire
parts that can be swapped let me know and as I collect info I will put it on
my web site.

They are fantastic, but they do not come cheap (check their price list).
These are the same books that the auto recycling industry uses.

Sam:

I looked at your page. I think your premise is a worthwhile pursuit. I
can understand the dumb stares you get when you ask the parts guy for a 65
whatever. I often wonder whether some less than scrupulous auto part sellers
artificially inflate their prices for classic applications. I fortunately
have an excellent relationship with my parts guy who is willing to order
stuff for me on a whim without any worry about sending it back. A lot of
this stuff has to be special ordered.

As a general rule, there are many applications where parts will
interchange, but I always caution it where safety is at issue. drive-line
and brake components are such items. In order to accurately compare items
you should rely on their specifications. I think the premise of an
interchange book is just that. Someone has taken the time to cross-reference
parts based on their dimensions and specs. I am willing to chase down some
specs for you on your drums. E-mail me off list if you are interested.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 351m water passages blocked

Hey all, my new toy is a 79 F100 and it has an original 351m with about 118k
miles on it. It still runs good but when it heats up it pops and gurgles
like it is over heating but the water flowing around the temp sensor is cool
(working and showing cool temp). I put in a new t-stat, water pump, and
flushed the radiator. While the water pump was off I tried to flush the
water passages in the block and had some trouble getting flow. I finially
got the water to flow through but it is still acting up. Any suggestions on
clearing the passages before I pull the whole thing out? The truck sat for
2 years before I bought (stole) it for $500 with a perfect body and
origional owner!

I currently have a 390 out of a mustang in my '76 F250 and I was

has any better ideas about a swap into this truck, please let me know.

well, I'm sorry to tell you this, but my suggestion is to pull it. I work
in a machine shop, so I have a lot of experience with this type of problem.
Fords typically have very narrow water jackets, so sediment builds up
easily. They fill the water jacket from the bottom up. I have seen
build-up clear to the freeze-plugs[kind of hard to get them out when it is
solid behind them.].the best bet is to get the freeze-plugs out, then dig
around in there with a sharp tool to loosen the crud. Flush with water,
then reinstall new freeze-plugs. They are 1 and 1/2 inch dia.

a while back there were a few people talking about the dual exhaust for
the six cylinders. what about intakes? did ford make a stock 2bbl intake
for the six? if so, is it compatable with all model years? what is the
best bang for the buck without risking a "cheesy sounding" motor? i
remember someone was concerned about that. keeping my baby, el corchino
(piglet), stock is my ultimate goal, but more power is always a plus.
