I love Fords but don't get me wrong. There door pannels ect sux. THe way
to tell is to get the tag off the rear chunk. Here is a site that will
cross the numbers out that you get there.

Not sure what year truck your talking about but on my 69 there is a code on
the tag on the jam of the driver side door. Post what that says and you can
tell for sure as the tire size dictates the effective ratio.

You lucked out with this math bubba ! If it had been any other bore it
wouldn't have worked, because the equation is actually bore squared divided
by 4, but that for you worked out. But generally pi r square right ? :)
then divide that by 4 to get the r square to diameter terms ...

so your equation would look a little more accurate as
(area of a circle)* height of cylinder * number of cylinders * Pi (off the
top of my head)
4.00x4.00/4x3.1415926 x 4.00 x 8 = 402.12 or whatever ..

As for the block, C9 means 1969, 429s / 460s & 429CJs use the same block
there is absolutely no difference.
If you think you have a Cobra Jet, just look in the lifter valley, where the
three holes are above the cam the initials CJ are cast in the there about 1"
tall letters, very distinct and neat. If you have a 70 it is 4 bolt mains
for the CJ. Telling the 460's apart is a little difficult on looking only,
you have to dig deeper. Crank and piston pin heighths are different.
Transmissions i think are different. Same C-6 but if you take one off a 460
it won't bolt up to a 429. Correct me if I'm wrong..

On the transmission issue you are wrong. If the gent. has the crankshaft
there is an easy way to tell the difference.

you're right it can be done and it makes a killer package, BUT you better be
prepared to lay out some cash for the machine work, crank has to be modified
alot,
and the block has to be ground on to clear the crankshaft, someone told me
crank mods for this run approximately $1000.00, and i also heard you could
buy the set up ready to assemble from P.A.W.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - '64ish Chipper/Dump For Sale!

Spotted this on the way to work, stopped and did
a quick check out. It's a 64ish F600
with a behind the cab mounted chipper and a
big covered bin behind for the chips that dumps back.

My guess is that the chipper is run from a PTO, as
I couldn't see a motor. A note on the floor says
its got a new engine and brakes.

I don't have a phone number or a price, as the sign
got blown away before I remembered to stop.

I can see it needs a windshield, but other than
some badly faded paint, it's not beat up.

Drop me a line if anyone is interested and I'll
leave a note on the truck.

Stu, stop reading!

Another cool truck for sale nearby is what I call
a carrydeck. It's a yard truck with a cab sized
about two feet across and about 5 feet long.
It is designed for hauling long pipes around, with
side boxes for other stuff, very cool truck, even
if it's not a Ford. Sixties is my guess as to the
era, $800, sucha deal. It classifies in a weird
way as a supercab, since there is a jump seat
behind the driver. 530-268-1661 I think, it's been
moved.

Looks like I have to post from Altavista and read
from Mailcity, as I just get a pile of text in AV.

Folks,
I just talked to a head shop that uses a "K-Liner" (spelling may be
wrong) machine for redoing the guides. They say is some way of
depositing a Bronze alloy into the reamed guides.
What do you think of this method?

From: "Brett L. Habben"
Subject: FTE 61-79 - Re: Book on Differentials

Mark,
Terminology gets confusing. OK, back to the original problem. What
pieces are chewed up? The reason I ask is that replacing just the 4
gears inside the carrier ("spider gears" or "two side gears on the axles
and two pinion gears") is just a Remove and Replace (R&R) affair. Now if
either/both the Ring gear ("Crown" gear on the carrier) and the "Pinion"
gear that meshes with it are damaged then it moves beyond simple R&R and
gets into the world of setting up the gear lash.
Anyway, it's pretty obvious the stress fourwheeling puts on those spider
gears. I've also seen people actually destroy the crush sleeve (the cure
of which is to replace the crush sleeve with a shim pack).
25 years ago my dad bought a shiny new red '74 F100 Ranger 4x4
360-2V/C6/NP203/limited slip 3.55's,etc. and I tore into that thing as
only a teenager could. By the time it was all said and done a '70 390
w/4V holley, dist recurve, etc. perked it right up.
So what are your damages? Is this full-time or part-time fourwheel
drive?

Does anyone know the difference, if any, between these 2 switches? One is

John,

I "borrowed" my nearly-repaired van this past weekend, and *man*...
it was down right hot in Houston. I say this because the AC just
doesn't work. I was looking through my repair paperwork, and I
noticed that the shop, a few months ago, topped off the system
with R134A. How can I tell the difference between an R12 and
R134A system? Is this possible? Would I be wrong, in assuming,
that the 78 van came with an R12 system originally. If this is a
fact, I'm not sure if the conversion was done. Now I'm wondering
if my AC system is screwed up... 8^(

By the way... would you do it again... knowing what you know now?
