Subject: FTE 61-79 - engine support brackets

I am getting ready to replace the 240 engine in my 70 F100, with a 390 and
was wondering will I need to change the engine support brackets bolted to
the frame. If so will ones off a 69 F250 that I'm taking the 390 from work
on it, both are 2wds

pistons? I'm getting these blank stares. Also, how low an octane fuel
can you run with this combo? >>

I'll have my brother look at his paperwork, see what he can find. Also Id
like to restate what I meant by swirl. The whole piston doesn't have a
swirl, just opposite ends on the side of the dishing. And as far as octane,
Im not sure, as we haven't fired her up yet. I'll let ya know when we get to

I would suggest that a new Felpro pan gasket be used in conjunction with
a thin layer of RTV on both sides (spread with index finger). I would also
suggest that the pan be "arrow straight" before you install it. This could
be a great time for a ball peen hammer and block of wood. It might be a good
idea to put RTV on each and every bolt which holds the pan into place, and
fill the indents of the pan surface as well.

Stock Man has gone out of his way on many
occasions to help strangers whom he'll probably never meet (even if he
didn't type everything in manually like the rest of us... hehe).

I'd like to know if he still needs those 15x5 rims for the 67 and what
to look for. Perhaps I could dig up a set, but I really don't know much
about rims. It seems like my uncle has a 67 convert with 'funky' wheels, and
he may have the stock ones laying around somewhere.

BTW:) what is OCR?
