yep ... done that too, though the project that I
did was to put conventional dist guts in a
Duraspark II casing. It works in that direction,
so I would guess it works in the other direction
as well. Those little springs inside are a pain

Hehe

"Wow,.. these big tires sure are light" says the clerk as he weights all
items to be shipped.>>>>

That reminds me of something. Way back when I was in engineering school
my professor told us about this same idea. A guy called him who owned a
logging company and was having trouble with his equipment getting stuck
in wet land areas. The guy was using those big machines with large
flotation tires but was still getting struck. He asked if putting helium
in the tires would help lighten the machines. My professor said that it
would not do any good. As helium is compressed it increases its density.
The helium would have to be compressed to whatever the tire psi rating
was so it would negate the benefit. If I remember correctly the guy got
pissed off and said he was going to try it anyway then hung up. Never
found out if the guy ever tried it.

AutoZone has a program called Loan-a-Tool. They will sell you a
puller, or most any other specialty tool, and refund your money when you
bring it back. FYI, they also check and charge batteries, alternators,
starters, and ignition modules. No charge.

210 is really about right. Good anti-freeze raises the boiling point
up close to 250-260 degrees. Boiling is what causes engine damage, you
get steam in your casting voids, causing rapid expansion, also causing
the exposed surface temperature to rise exponentially. This
thermo-dynamic pressure will distort and crack the metal, or blow a
gasket. Depending on the engine design and condition of the coolant,
230-240 degrees isn't as bad as you would think either.

Robert Shaw thermostats are top quality units, I agree. The most
important thing though is condition of the coolant. Everything from
radiator flow, to the effectiveness of the thermostat to regulate
temperature during warm up, all dove-tails to the bottom line. Coolant
effectivness to prevent boiling or freezing. The change interval is
individually determined by the engine design. Engines with high
aluminum content require more frequent intervals due to the
chemical/electrical reaction of the coolant to the ozidation of the
aluminum. Iron isn't as bad, but scale is the most common problem.
Frequent flushes are needed to keep flow up. The thermostat is a link
in the chain, but overall coolant condition is what will break you.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - VERY LARGE Pickup-Style Body

While gathering wood here in the bacwoods mountains of Northern
California (yes California has backwoods and they are not some place you
want to get lost) there is a yard full of old trucks for sale. All are
medium-duty or bigger but one that caught my eye is a pickup style, but
medium duty. It is mid to late 70's I would guess. It has the same cab
you'd expect to see on a dump truck but then almost what I would
describe as a styleside bed that goes straight back from the cab (so
it's wider than a normal bed) and then fender flares just like a
dually. The bed isn't that long, must only be 10 or 12 feet. The
wheels are either 20" or 22.5", 10 hole if I remember quickly. All in
all it just looks like a scaled up pickup. Has anybody ever seen such
an animal? I'd almost like to buy it because it looks like such a
collector's item, not in bad shape.

I'm new to this list, new to Fords in general. I just picked up a '76 F100, longbed, standard
cab. Nice truck, but beat-up.

Have an engine knock, then looked to discover hydraulic lifters. Other than an exhaust leak,
any ideas of what this could be? Sounds just like a loose valve, but gets more pronounced when
under greater power.

Secondly, the bed is shot. Can I just pop a new one on without messing with the gas tank (I
mean other than the filler neck)?

And lastly, anybody know where I can get something like a button-on vinyl bench seat cover to go
over the old torn-up vinyl? All I can find is the cloth covers, which is fine, but I like
stock.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Spending Spree

Yo gang, aren't vacations great? Henry and the dogs had a contest to see who
could spend the most. Although severely out numbered, Henry won with no
problem. The big expense was four P225-70R/15 Goodyear Eagle GT IIs. The
raised white letters look a little odd next to the stock wheel discs, but I
think I will get used to it. :-) Garry, I used my stock wheels and
everything worked great. While the new tires were being installed the
mechanic discovered that the front brakes are worn to the rivets. I picked
up a set of pads and installed those last night. While I had it apart I
packed the front bearings, too. I also purchased a set of locking lug nuts
to protect my new tires.

Earlier in the week I picked up a set of driving lights for $2 at a yard
sale. I hooked them up as day time running lights after mounting them under
the front bumper. I took a feed off of the backup light circuit so that they
turn on and off with the ignition. I am considering moving the ground so
that they will turn off when the head lights come on.

Sparky, I still haven't rewired my tail lights. I'm loooking for the right
divider material. I have about decided to go with a second dual filament
bulb. I picked up some bulb sockets at the bone yard Thursday. I learned two
things about F series tail light assemblies. The 79 is different from the
earlier years. Though outward appearance is the same, the earlier years
(from 74 to ?) have four screws holding on a lense. My 79 has two screws
that hold an integral assembly. Also, I found some chrome that goes around
the van tail lights. It doesn't quite fit my F150 correctly as I had hoped
it would.

Back to more vacation! :-)

I have a 400M with a 600 Edelbrock, and they are good carbs, easy to
rebuild, and no gas leak worries. I am constantly thinking of going to a
750 though. Car Craft did a test recently on a 350, and power went up with
each increase in carb size, with no loss of low end power. Edelbrock carbs
are air flow activated, so if you only need 700 cfm that is all they will
provide.

It was written:
>210 is really about right. Good anti-freeze raises the boiling point
>up close to 250-260 degrees.

Anti-freeze only raises the boiling point slightly... maybe 10-15
degrees. It's the pressure cap thats mostly responsible for raising
the boiling point.

The vapor point of water increases under pressure as follows:
0 PSIG = 212 F
10 PSIG = 239 F
20 PSIG = 259 F
30 PSIG = 273 F
40 PSIG = 286 F
50 PSIG = 297 F
60 PSIG = 307 F
70 PSIG = 316 F

With a 15 lb pressure cap, the boiling point of water is roughly 250 F.
A 50/50 mix of coolant might raise it to 260-265.

The catch is that ethylene glycol coolant is also a crappy conductor of
heat, and actually reduces the cooling capacity. Pure water is *much*
better at transfering heat than a glycol/water mix.
Anti-freeze only does a small amount to raise the boiling temp and
does a lot to make the cooling system *less* efficient...
If you don't live in an area where the freeze protection is required
than it's best to run just a small amount of anti-freeze to provide
corrosion protection and pump lubrication. Motors with aluminum block
or heads may need a strong coolant mix to prevent serious corrosion
damage, but with good old iron parts only a little bit is neccessary.

Another list member (thanks George) turned me on to a good website that
has some useful info on the subject.

Here's the skinny on these cams and the adj. rockers discussed before.
I don't have the Federal Mogul numbers, but you can just about bet that
they're the same piece, badge engineered as Crane and Lunati. (IMHO)


Part number 10503 is Lunati's version of the C60Z-B 428 CJ 335 & 360 HP
cam.

Part number 20501 is Lunati's version of the 427-425 HP cam.

Part number 344361 (PowerMax F-294) is the Crane Fireball 294.

Part number 34772-16 is the Crane part number for their 427
ductile-iron 1.76 to 1 ratio adjustable rockers.

Part number 84428 is the Harland Sharp part number for their 427 roller
1.76 to 1 ratio adjustable rockers.

Part number 85034 is the Lunati part number for their 427 ductile-iron
1.76 to 1 ratio adjustable rockershaft assembly.

All require each's brand of pushrod.

Yes, you can run two pumps in series. I have not done it, but it is a trick
that people who use old cars as daily drivers use if they want to keep the
stock look of the engine compartment (and stock diapragm fuel pump).

The electric pump is primarily used to prime the carb after the vehicle has
been sitting. As you know, a car with an electric pump generally starts
much faster than one with a mechanical pump. The electric pump can be
mounted hidden near the rear so you can't see it without climbing
underneath. If the electric pump is only used to prime, it can be turned on
an off with a hidden toggle switch.

Fuel can move through both mechanical and electric pumps even if they are
shut off, so if one of the pumps is on, it will push or pull fuel through
without interfering with the other pump.

Any chance this book has a # of 74 F-350 SRW Stylesides produced?

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Overheating 351C

Hey all, Haven't posted in a while. Got an overheating problem. I remember a
big discussion on this quite some time back. I recently put a 351C engine
from a 1970 Cougar into a 78 F150 Pickup for a customer.
The thing was used and I put a lot of new parts in it for him. oil pump,
waterpump, timing chain, A/C, etc. Well the thing runs awesome.
As long as it just sits at an Idle it never gets hot. You can run the A/C at
full blast and it stays right around 195/200 degrees.
As soon as you rev up the motor to a fast idle and hold it there or run it....
