I thought headers were supposed to cut down on excess heat?!?
I dont have headers myself, but what I did was cut off the original muffler(clogged
up) and put in a glasspac, then put two 2 1/2 (or maybe 3) inch pipes put the
rear.. Sounds great to me and felt like it added power but when I get some extra
money(whats that) I gonna put true duals on it probably with flowmasters...

Thanks Danger, Wedive247, and Ted on your comments on my turn signals.

I did have about a 3/16's inch gap between the wheel and housing, maybe a
lower bearing problem like you mentioned, Danger.

I loosened the steering column bolts on the dash and slid the column up 1/8"
to see if they would c*ncel, but you are right, Wedive247 and Ted, I am
missing a pin on the c*ncellation collar, so that didn't help.

Moving the column up seems to have tightened up my steering though. I had
about 1/4 turn of play before and have about half that now. What's up with
this and am I looking for some other problem by moving the steering column
up 1/8"? TIA

Eldon, 1964 f100

Nt '66 has locks, both sides. In none of these does it appear the locks

Are you sure you have a 205 ? This is how a 203 will work with hubs on the
front of it ... try locking in the hubs and putting it in 2 ... if it works
fine now, then crawl under it and take a peek, a 203 is much larger than a
205 ...

My 65F250 has locks on both doors. When I bought the truck, I couldn't
lock/unlock either door with the ignition key. I also couldn't find any
door locks from any of the parts houses up here. I ended up buying a set
of locks for a 67 and newer at Big Wheel/Rossi for $14.99. I had to file
out the lock openings in the door to get them to fit, but they hooked up
to the original link just fine. So now I have a newer square style key
for the doors and an older V shaped key for the ignition. Real easy to
tell apart and best of all, I can lock up the cab now!

If you push down on the inside door handle (the opposite way from
opening) it should lock.

...........

While making adjustments to the steering column position, you should
keep the "rag joint' aka "rubber steering disc coupler" in mind. The coupler
should be flat when the gearbox shaft and column shaft are mated.

With the custom option you have the chromed handle plates, right? The ones
with custom on them and go under the handle. The button on those handles have
extra length built in for the thickness of the plate. Just an FYI if anyone
wants to add the handle plates, grab the handle and buttons too.

For all you guys contemplating a 460 in your favorite early vintage FOMOCO truck
you can purchase your rear sump oil pan, dipstick, and dipstick tube from the
Ford parts counter. Get one for your favorite year of E series(vans) with 460.
You also need to get the oil pump and pickup tube for the same year van you

I also have a 9 inch from a 1976 Torino that is in good condition I was
wondering if the pods are interchangeable between these, a shop told me that
they weren't interchangeable but a friend of mine insists that they are.

There are 2 axle spline counts for the Ford 9" rears. A 28 spline and a 31
spline. If they are both 28 spline or both 31 spline the "Chunks" are
interchangeable. If one is a 28 spline and the other is a 31 spline, then the
axle drive gears must be swapped also, but is relatively easy to do. The rear
will have to be completely re setup, but with the 9", that is relatively simple.
I can do it, but I don't think I can teach you to do it over by E-mail. Pull an
axle from each and count the splines on each.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - F100 Tranny Swap - Request for info

Hello - I have a 1978 F100 Custom 2wd. with a 300 - 6 cyl with a three
speed. The tranny is getting LOUD and I fear it is not long for this world.
Which brings up a question about swapping transmissions.
Is the bolt pattern the same on the old ford 3 speed, and the newer 5 speed
manual overdrive tranny?

I also have questions about the clutch (mechanical vs hydraulic), flywheel,
size of clutch and pressure plate, bell housing, linkage, change of shifter
from column to floor, drive shaft, cost of adapters or other necessary parts
- - (is there anything else I am forgetting?)

Any information would be greatly appreciated, including recommendations for
alternate transmissions. I prefer to keep the tranny manual.

Maybe someone can point me to this information?
Thanks in advance.

Cubic Feet per Minute .... so your 600 will flow 600 cubic feet per minute
of air through it ... hit the Holley page they have a formula for figuring
out how much air you really need for your motor ...

This isn't specifically FE content, but thanx for the explanation about
the differences between heavy-use engines and street engines. I've had
questions about that since I was a kid, driving a G*C 427 equipped truck
whose redline was only just a little more than half the redline on the
Ch*vy 396 in my car. I never did understand that. Always thought an
engine was an engine, more cubes, more performance... thought the bad
gas mileage and slow take-off was only related to weight and gearing.
Due to time constraints (FE content) I've opted to save a few $$ and
take the 66 in, pay someone for a full diagnosis, then go from there.
So I continue bumming rides to work, and watching my neatly organized
outside trash bin get fuller... eventually it'll pay off, when the 66 is
back on the road and I'm happily sitting behind a working 390 w/ dual
exhaust:)

Look around a bit, seems like there were some (Borg-Warner sounds
like)t-18's behind those ... though I can't remember for sure ... maybe it
was the NP (New Process) that they put back there I remember reading on a
Jeep page about someone swapping those around... I don't remember offhand,
but usually www.off -road. com is usually a good starting point for some Jeep

To fit the Ford t-18 into a jeep you need to change out the main shaft. As
someone else mentioned Off-Road.com is a good place to look.

As for the radiator, any wrecking yard in your area should have an oversupply of
these. Most might be 3 row. If you have the cash there is always Griffin (sp?)
Radiators.

I wonder if the 534 really is built to run at 2000 rpm. If it is a
gasoline engine, it can probably run 4000 easy. Does anyone know the
stroke/bore? It would still be nice for towing, especially with an
overdrive.

Wonder how much it weighs..

My oil pan plug came with a little gasket. The package told me to replace

Also, should I replace the gaskets or bearings for the axles?

We are talking ford 9" right?

Assuming so: You have removed both axles, and all the nuts from the studs
around the center section (center section, hogs head, drop out, third
member = all the same thing) if all the above is true, it's just the
gasket, sealer, silicone holding it in. If the previous owner used some kind
of gasket adhesive when it was reassembled, ...well you could be in for a
real tug o' war. Try and work a putty knife or gasket scraper in between the
housing and center section, little bit all the way around. This will brake
the seal, to some degree. then pry, pull, until it comes out. Go easy on the
hammer.. that is a cast steel piece, and as such will not react well to a
hammer blow.

AFAIK the 460 is supposed to be a bolt in replacement for the 351M/400.
Since your truck is 2wd you don't need the different oil pan. If the guy
lost his license I'd say you can probably pick it up for next to nothing.
I do suggest getting a huge radiator.

I'm not sure you'll be able to keep your accessories as well. You may
have to look for those on the junk yards.. (or at least the brackets)

I think emissions has more to do with long-term effects on the environment
(i.e. your kids and grandchildren) than smog (unless you live in
California, particularly, where smog is a major concern). The laws were
probably first meant to keep people from driving around belching blue and
black smoke into the air as opposed to making sure that every vehicle still
had a charcoal canister in it. But given how many vehicles we now have on
our roads even compared to 5-10 years ago, stiff regulations are necessary.

Besides, it gives us up here in road salt land the dream of magical place
where the scrap yards are (supposedly) full of rust-free old Ford trucks...

Wow! Talk about this thing has gone on for three weeks.

The 534 is a low speed, gas engine. I was not exaggerating when I said that
the 534 probably weighs double the weight of a 460. I've had to wrestle
with a few at the machine shop that I work at.

The application is for 750 series and larger trucks built from 1958 through
1981. Bore is 4.500. Stroke is 4.200. 4000 RPM would be the redline for
an engine of this size. I hope this puts to rest the idea of putting one of
these in an F series P.U.
