I did this swap in a 79 T-Bird (same chassis) a few years ago. Everything was pretty much a
bolt in except for the bracket that is required to hold teh throttle valve cable. I had a
floor shifter and the bolted right up. If you have a colunm shifter a bracket may be
required there also. The driveshaft was the correct length for me, but of course I had to
change the yoke. The crossmember had to be moved back to the second set of holes (I think,
this was 5-6 years ago). This tranny is big, so it is a tight fit, but it does go. If you
have any other questions, feel free to ask.

From: "Dane Berthelsen"
Subject: FTE 61-79 - New Power Steering Pump?

My power steering stopped working. I first thought it had run out of fluid,
and I added some more, but it only lasted for a little while. It looked like
as if the fluid is coming up through the dipstick so I replaced it, but it's
still coming out.

First question - is my steering pump gone ? If so, I can probably get a one
from the junk yard. My truck is a 77 f150 with a 400 engine - will it be
hard to find one, or will most power steering pumps from a ford truck fit ?

Second question - what kind of fluid is recommended to put in the power
steering pump. I went to the local Grand Auto store and they had too many
brand to chose from. Are they all more or less the same ?

Third question - if the pump is gone, what would have caused it to fail ? It
is an old truck, but still. My steering is a little loose, but I wouldn't
think it had any impact ?

Thanks,
Dane

On one hand I agree with you, but under the circumstances I can
hardly not break a smile when you talk about a factory truck with a blower
as "stock". In my opinion, I'd say we were fairly matched considering the
equipment. Only a purest would debate that I was out-gunning him because my
blower wasnt included in the build code.
In any event, I dont feel bad about driving past him, or driving
past 5.0 Mustangs, or driving past rice burners, or any other "stock"
vehicle that my truck is giving up hundreds or thousands of pounds to.
The only thing that would have been even more sweet was if I had
the 460 in Ruby and blown him away. Long shot, oooooh yes..... but imagen
the look you'd get when your old '79 supercab 4x4, with the "non-factory"
equipment, went hammering by. Now that'd be flat out comical.

Got me. He claims 5 lugs, I guess I'm kinda new at this too. In the

rear was the wheel bearings. And since, kinda hate to admit this on

Dennis,
This is a full sized Marquis. It might be an 83 model. It is the clone of a
Crown Vic. This engine would be an excellent stop gap while someone built
their original. It has never been open and is the original engine. What ever
year it is, I am 100% positive it has the feedback carb. If it was EFI, it
would be sitting in my driveway right now. :-)

Cool. Hope the deal works out and is as advertised. I'm sure that
Ford did do some weird things, but having grown up on MoPars not much
from the factory is suprising. Bewildering sometimes, but not

Hmmm...interesting ... I wonder if the EFI had something to do with the
options on the car? My grandmother bought an early 80's Crown Vic new ...
its got EFI. I was always told it was an 83. Fun car, it is brown so
everyone thinks its a state trooper, though that's happening less and less
... its just sitting now, she's got a newer car she drives all the time.

Hmmmm.... so the Talon TSi isn't a "stock" car ? I don't get this. I'll
grant you that the Lightning is a limited production vehicle, but its still
stock because it comes with a full warranty and you don't have to change
anything on it to have the blower ... even the TC's and SC's of the 80's and
90's respectively had blowers on them, don't think anyone ever suggested
they weren't stock ...

To determine this, how much horsepower are you putting out ? If the hp's
line up pretty close, then you're evenly matched....

I don't expect you to feel bad, he was foolish enough to run you ... run
what you brung. I think its quite different to fly past a 5.0 or a rice
burner than it is to fly past another Lightning ... you aren't giving up any
weight to the other pickup, or if you are its just incidental due to body
style changes and such ...

Hmmm...I'm trying to think of an analogy but can't come up with anything
good ...

Now that would be cool because it would be a way bigger and much much older
truck ... a totally differen scenario ... not to mention that would've made
me think he was a bad driver or the truck was slow, but you aren't bursting
any bubbles by saying that your modified newish truck beat a stock new
one...

Subject: FTE 61-79 - emissions

This is my first posting to this list, I have been reading
for about a month but have not posted anything yet. Anyways,
I just got back from getting my '78 F250 with a 460 C6 transmission
and holley 4bbl carb tested for emissions and it failed. Here in Salt
Lake City, Utah they test it at 15MPH and 25MPH on the tread the
following are my readings:
%CO2 %O2 HC(ppm)
CO% NO(ppm)
test meas meas max ave meas max ave
meas max ave meas
15mph 9.6 0.1 517 73 240 3.82
0.77 8.10 3782 996 514
25mph 8.5 0.2 497 55 261 3.72
0.68 9.93 3582 864 259


As you can see the CO is way above the max. They gave me a pamphlet
that listed these as the possible causes:
- - dirty air filter
- - clogged PCV system
- - partially closed choke
- - incorrect carburetor setting
- - dirty engine oil
- - faulty oxygen sensor
- - engine wear

I just bought the truck last year and I am just learning some
mechanics. I rebuilt the carb earlier this summer and the exhaust pipes
look much cleaner now than they did before and it seems to run smoother
too. I also increased my gas mileage by about 2mpg after the rebuild.
I believe the carb is an after market Holley and doesn't have any
emissions type features. The engine was rebuilt at 96,000 miles and now
has 124,000 miles on it. Also the charcoal canister is not connected to
anything and I don't know what it should be connected to via a vacuum
hose, it only hase one nipple on it. There is a capped nipple coming up
from the intake manifold just in front of the carburetor, is that what
it should go to? Do any of you have any suggestions besides the ones
listed in the pamphlet and what kind of incorrect carburetor settings
would be a cause? Thanks in advance for any help you might give.

My '62 F100 squeaks horribly from two places: rubber door seals, and the

winter, but now are back.

Any suggestions? I am wary of applying something which will damage/eat the

Other than that the truck is running great. I enjoy the list, and thank all

Try lifting one wheel off the ground with a jack. This will free the binding
and should allow you to select any shift position available. If it doesn't free
up, then I would think the linkage(to the transfer case) is binding, and a trip
underneath your vehicle to look at the shift rods, while your friend is trying
to move the selector would be in order.

Bill,
is this a 2 wheel drive or a 4X4? I'm assuming a 2wd since many 4X4 owner's
are looking to go the other way in altitude. That being said our twin I
beam suspensions don't lend themselves well to altered ride heights. If you
cut the springs or install shorter ones the tires will tilt (camber
measurement) inward and the tire will be riding on the inside edge. There
is no adjustment to correct the camber short of bending the I beams. There
are some companies that offer "dropped" I beams or spindles. The modified I
beam has a kingpin mounting point that is higher than stock. The modified
spindle has the axle stub mounted higher on the spindle. Both work with
stock springs and create a lowered stance by effectively moving the wheel
"up" in the wheel well.

Check out an Issue of Truckin or Sport truck for ads of manufacturers that
offer these products.

Are there any engines aroung there(ci) that he could have been mistaken

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Update on slumbering van and question on flashers...

Hello all.
Got the slumbering van (77 E150 sat for four years, given to us) pretty much
awake. Had to drop both tanks. One was too rusty to use and the other
cleaned up well thanks to someone's suggestion of using lacquer thinner. So
for right now, we're using only one tank (midship). I bypassed the
switching valve and installed a clear filter before the pump so I can keep
an eye on it. I plan on keeping a spare in the van at all times.

Got the carb rebuilt and now she fires right up with just a quick tap of the
key. Darn thing starts faster than my fuel-injected C#evy!

Problem now is the turn signals don't work. Either side. Bulbs are new and
correctly installed. Sockets look good. Hazard flashers work, but don't
flash LR bulb and LF bulb flashes out of sync with the right side.

Odd, huh?

I checked the factory book and the wording is kinda vauge. Is there a
seperate flasher for the turn signals? Where is it?
Could a bad turn signal switch be the cause (feels kinda sloppy). The van
has cruise control (no tilt) and I can't find a used switch anywhere. New
one from Ford is $100. Could I use a switch from a non-cruise van (I don't
know if the cruise works anyway and I think turn signals are a little more
important.)?

Thanks in advance.

Not really, means the ground is bad somewhere there ... one is grounding
through the other to even come on, then when power is applied the one goes
off because the voltages are equal... something like that, but classic
symptoms of a bad ground wire somewhere...

Yes, they should both be tucked up under the dash ... mine aren't mounted
anywhere, so you may find them hiding between things to keep them from
rattling, or they could be in mounts on the dash frame somewhere ....

> Could a bad turn signal switch be the cause (feels kinda

Could be ... for the signals not working, doesn't explain the lights acting
funny...

I'd track down that loose ground first and see if that's causing your turn
signals to maybe not work ... then pull the wheel off and see what the
switch looks like, you may be able to get away with cleaning up the contacts
on the points in there ... we managed to sneak that through on our 57 Olds,
don't even wanna think what one of those would cost to replace...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 300 does not have a timing chain. I think

Hi:

I had a '75 E-150, and currently have a '78 E-150, my girlfriend has a '79
E-250.

All three have seperate flash units for the emergency flashers and blinkers.

I don't know if this is related but the turn signal switch on my '75 was pretty
badly worn out. The left brake light would not come on when brakes were
applied unless I lifted the turn signal arm slightly to take the weight off it.

I got pulled over one night when my left brake light didn't come on at a
stop sign. I found out the turn signal switch was bad later when I tried to
track the problem down and discovered the left brake light at first would
only come on if I had the blinker switch set to run the right blinkers.

Hope this helps.

From: "Graves, Greg"
Subject: FTE 61-79 - Questions About 1967 F-350

While I have a few questions about my '67 f-350, they are probably
applicable to all '67 f series trucks owners. I have a '67 dual wheel F-350
with factory stake bed. The original drive train was a 352 w/ 4 speed.
When I got it, the 352 had been replaced by a '70 model 390. The previous
owner said that the least confusing method of buying engine related parts
was to ask for parts for a 1968 F-350 since a 390 was not available in the
truck in 1967. Here are some of the problems I have ran into by doing this:

1. I recently had to replace the radiator so I decided to do the
whole hose/thermostat replacement thing. I bought the parts using the
above mentioned . The bottom hose fit fine. However, the top radiator
hose and thermostat did not. Apparently when the engine was replaced,
the accessories off of the 352, including the water neck, were put on the
390. The '67 water neck uses a 2" diameter hose and a larger thermostat.
The '68 and later FE's use a
1 3/4" upper hose and smaller diameter thermostat. Does this sound
right?

2. When I got the truck, it had a fan shroud off some GM
product. At the same time of the radiator replacement, I put in a fan
shroud from a '68 F-series. It fits fine, but it seems that more of the fan
is out of the shroud than in it. The fan is a clutch type that appears to
be original to the current engine. Is the fan up in the shroud far enough,
or do I need a spacer between the shaft and water pump?

3. Lastly, the truck has dual wheels on the back, but
standard 8 lug wheels up front. I have seen original Ford literature
showing a '67 F-350 with dual style wheels front and back. Is there an
adapter available for the front so I can use the same kind of wheel all
around?

Thanks in advance for any help with these questions.

Yes, you are correct. Twice!

That was part of the point. My direct mesh "precision set" from Cloyes (and
yes, they were steel) was about half the cost of his stock steel set from Ford.
I sent a set of steel timing gears for a 300 back to Carolina auto parts that
would have cost me about $17, I probably didn't gain anything by going with
the Cloyes set, but you know how it goes. "keep the 'performance' part or the
'stock' one???".... No chains were used on either truck.

A question for the group that I have been pondering.

How many inches of Hg vacuum should I be pulling at 1) idle (~800 RPM) 2) 1000
RPM 3) 1500 RPM and 4) 2000 RPM? Currently, I know I am pulling about 16-17
inches Hg at idle. Probably the altitude making it that high.

Dave Resch, what are you pulling there in Colorado?

Thanks!!

the car or truck has red brake and turn signals, and the trailer has amber
and separate turn signals, and red brake lights ???

So, when you hit the brake pedal and put on turn signals at the same time,
one of the brake lights starts flashing, but both brake lights on the
trailer is steady on, and the turn signal on the trailer comes on
instead...

I know how to do it, but it is a hassle every time,,,and no diodes

speed. It's pretty simple...
Provided your 3 speed is a toploader, and you're replacing it with
a 4 speed Toploader, the tranny will bolt to the bellhousing. You
may need to replace your clutch disk (if the spline-count on the input
of the 4 speed is different) and throw-out bearing, but you were gonna do
that anyway, right? Except for that, everything in the bellhousing will work
fine. The 4 speed Toploader is a bit longer in the case, so you'll need to
get your driveshaft shortened. Finally, you'll need to make sure the
spline count on the output of the 3 and 4 speed are the same (or else get a
driveshaft yoke w/ the proper spline count).
If you have any more questions, email me off list.

He's more likely talking about the car version of 4 sp here and not the "Granny"
geared 4 sp normally associated with trucks.(ie NP435's and T18/19's)

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Truck Hesitates/Stalls when accelerating from stop.

The truck in question has a 351M engine with an Autolite 2150 carb with
ERG(not working). The truck starts just fine and idles decent for a truck
with 120k. When I start to go and give the truck more gas it will hesitate
and sometimes stall if I do not feather the gas just right. I have checked
the vacuum lines attach to the carb to make sure nothing is loose or
cracked. I also used carb cleaner thinking there maybe a clogged in one of
the jets. The next thing that I did was choke the carb a few times while
running the engine to see if it would also remove what ever may be clogging
the carb. After these two attempts at fixing the carb did not work I
adjusted the fuel/air mixture but that did not help either. The carb is
getting enough fuel because I used a half gallon jug and the electric fuel
pump started to full the jug up very quickly. I have been using the this
electric fuel pump for about a four months because the other electric pump
died. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem would be great because the
next thing I would be doing is getting a new carb. If any other info needed
just ask.

Thanks

Yup, matches with what I've seen ...

It doesn't need to be in the shroud, just slightly outside will work fine
... I don't think I've ever seen a spacer used with a clutch on a Ford ...


Hope this helps

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Super Cobra Jet

I just need someone to tell me I'm right. Some friends and I were going
through the nickel ads when one of them found an ad for "429 SCJ" heads.
It got my attention, but I told him that there is no 429 SCJ, only a 428
SCJ, and a Boss 429. So who is right? Me, or the guy that placed the ad?
And if these are 428 SCJ heads, how would I know for sure, and what are
they worth? I suppose it could have been a typo also.

1965 introduced the FT (actually in the small F series it is the FE) in the
displacement of 352 cu in.

In cars it was 1958 in the displacement of 332 cu in.

406? Never heard of that one. But then, I never heard of a 410 until I
joined this list. So what did the 406 come in?

So a 428 crank (for the longer stroke) and a 390 bore = a 410? So what does a
428 crank cost? Can they still be purchase new, or are the a boneyard treasure?

Are these kits supposed to be for the entire truck? All the wiring in the dash,
engine compartment, and all the way down the chassis? If so, I may have to do
that myself. Let me know how it goes.

Subject: Re: FTE 61-79 - looking for a 429 and truck parts

I just scored a 429 for a buddy of mine for free. I was talking to one
of my uncles a couple of weeks ago and he told me about this 428 with a
2 barrel carb he had in an old 3/4 ton ford out at his property. He told
me that I could have the motor as long as I hauled the truck off. Well I
went and looked at it, and it turned out to be a 429 with a 4 barrel
instead. I was a little disappointed (cause I want to stick with the
FE's) but my friend could hardly contain himself. He has been wanting to
get another 429 or 460 to replace the 351M in his Bronco, and free was
right in his price range! We wound up towing the truck down to my
buddy's house and started messing with it one morning after work. The
truck hadn't been run since 92, but after removing the spark plugs and
spraying lube down the cylinders and then using a drill to spin the oil
pump until we had oil in the valve covers, It fired right up. We let it
run for a few minutes and it seems to run pretty good. Now if I could
get that kind of deal on a 428 SCJ......yeah, I know, not likely.
