If you push down on the inside door handle (the opposite way from

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Thunder 4 Wheel Drive

Guys (and Gals)....have you ever heard of "Thunder 4 Wheel Drive"? The guy
used to be in Southern New Jersey and I have heard that he moved to North
Carolina. The problem being is that he has a 4:10 ratio Front Dana 44 for my
Bronco. I sold him a Dana 60 Front and when he was picking it up from he
asked if I had a Dana 44 F-250 front with 3:50 gears. I had the complete
opposite set-up and he said he would swap the gears over without charge.
This has been over a year now and I am pissed!!! I call the number approx.
every 2 weeks to ask him to call me......but nobody calls back!!! I called
today and good old gramma bell says "Sorry...The number you have dialed has
been disconnected" I called the following number: 1-609-261-3300 If
anybody knows where in NC he has moved...PLEASE E-mail me offlist as I don't
want o tie up list traffic. Thanks!!! Wayne Grabley

Hey Garry,
Long time no see! Well as you know I have a 352 in my '67 F100 Camper
Special. The restoration is just about complete. I have got a slight oil
leak comming out of the valve covers. I've replaced the gaskets time and
time again but to no avail.
To the guy asking about headers or glasspacks for a 352 I say this: I'm
running 3" duals into glasspacks w/o headers and this truck sounds MEAN! I
actually set of car alarms as I pass by. I do plan on getting headers
though.

From: Melanie & Ronnie Rowton
Subject: FTE 61-79 - Need advice 3351M/360????

I have been reading e-mail from this group for a month now. Thanks for all
the great ideas, advice and tips. So, here is my problem.

I bought this 76 Supercab for AC and rust free body parts. My main ride, 78
Regular cab F250 4X4, has a 351M w/ NP435 and the Supercab has a 360 w/ C6.
I would like to trade the 360 for another 351M to rebuild possibly with
high prefomance parts (thnks David for the great technical article on FTE).
I have found someone who would like to trade his 351M which had a problem
after he finished doing some work to it. I don't remember exactly what he
was doing to the motor but, he said his kid droped something in one of the
cylinders and he think the piston has a hole in it.
The 76 has been sitting for 9 years in a barn and has not been started
since then. I didn't check out the motor but I had to take one of the valve
covers off to remove the evaporator housing. The rockers look perfectly
clean, no build up or gunk(keep in mind I am not a mechanic). My neighbor
was going to use the tranny and while removing it he turned the motor and
aid it has strong compression. It looks as if the motor and tranny are not
originals. The block still has orange paint and several parts on the
tranny look brand new. The odometer reads 90,000
I hate to trade a perfectly good motor for a peice of junk and I have
already told the guy I would make the trade. Here is my question, can I use
the 360 and C6 in place of my 351M and NP435? Will I need to get some new
parts for the tranny to connect to the transfer case? Right now I am
removing the steering column just in case this is an option. What do I need
to consider? I can use the engine mounts from the 76 but what about the C6
connecting to my transfer case? I do not know what type of transfer caase
I have. The ID tag has Ner Process and a 205 with 196 gears. The numbers I
have found on the C6 are RF-C6AP 7A105-A. If I can use the 360 and C6
without major reconstruction then I will just rebuild 360 (or maybe I don't
have to) instead of looking for another 351M.

I have another question about the unstuck dist. I'm now at around 30
degrees ATC.(???) If I align "0" up with the arrow and take off my dist
cap, where should the rotor be pointing to? Is there a notch or something
on there? My knock is better, still a little noticeable but much better,
I'll see next week what the gas mileage is up to.

Bill;

Tha't a very subjective question. Blue book, of course, is next to
nothing - but to a collector, it might be worth 7 to 8k. My suggestion is
to go to http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.traderonline.com/pickup/index.shtml and search pickups
of your type and condition. This is usually a pretty good gauge of what
it's worth.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Converting to a 460

I currently have a '78 SuperCab 2 wheel drive with a very tired 400M/C6. I
just found out about a '78 Lincoln sitting in a guy's back yard that only
has 56k on it. It has been sitting for about the last 5 years. It is a
460/C6, that has never been molested, ie all stock emmissions systems still
in place. The owner tells me the car was running ok when he parked it, but
the radiator was bad, and the interior was shot (vandalized), and he lost
his license. Now I am wondering what I would have to do to install that
combo in my truck. I would like to eliminate all smog equipment, as I am
sure the bracketry would be almost impossible to find for a truck. Also I
would like to use the complete rear end assembly as the one I have is REAL
bad. Any help or thoughts would be appriciated either to the list or
directly to saintnsinner mpinet.net
Thanks

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 352 Exhaust

Travis,
You asked about making the 352 sound good. I rebuilt the engine before
restoring the truck. When
the engine was rebuilt I had stand plain 2 1/4" duals with stock
mufflers installed. After I completed
the restoration I had 2 1/2" duals with Flowmaster triple chamber
mufflers installed. Sounds as
good or better then any mustang. They can be noisy on the road. I had
the mufflers placed under
the bed just before the rear axle and straight pipes out the back. (The
current exhause system cost
me $330.00) I am going to install headers once I can afford them.. I
was told to buy Dan Worley
headers or Dan's headers. They are made for FE engines. Cost is very
very high. To have them
installed is approx $450.00. They are made with the FE starter in mind
and will not burn it up. The
headers are very heavy and guarenteed a life time. When I have the
headers installed I will go to 3"
pipe all the way back. I have heard a newer Ford Pick up with 3 inch
pipes and headers and it
sounds good.

Just remember if you drive the truck alot noise becomes a real
factor....

Just my opinion.

Apperantly on a 78 f-150 400M the only emissions part
required is a PCV
valve. Just had my truck inspected and everything else was
checked NA for
not applicable.

Garry,

Could this possibly be Doug Thorley, instead of Dan Worley?

Subject: FTE 61-79 - RE: door locks & '62 unibody for sale

Wow, hearing about the potential for lack of door
locks makes me feel lucky that all four doors have
the same key still! Since the door key and ignition
key have the same shape, dad cut a little v-notch in
the ignition key so he could feel the difference
in the dark. I'm still using the original key with the
notch and just received another from dad they found
while moving out of the old house, this key has a
notch too, he was thorough.

Since the rear doors are cut down a little they had
to re-position the window cranks, and thus had to shift
the angle of the door handle so they are pointing
forward. You figure after 34 years of being in
this truck I would know which way to push to lock
the door, but I still get it wrong!


BTW found this ad in the local Grass Valley paper:
'62 Ford Pickup Unibody Shortbed $1000 530-639-1818
I don't recognize the 639 prefix however.
That's all I know!
