Sorry, I asked my bro about the piston, and all he knew was that they were
recommended by the machine shop. I'll get him to call those folks and see
what brand they were. As far as the head, its the stock 84 head, which oddly
enough has a 65 casting date. I guess its hard to mess with perfection huh?

I'd do a check on the vin before anything. The 460 wasnt available in the
F-series till 74, and then it was only in the F-350. If it is a 73 460, I
believe the spec is around 275 hp. If its an earlier engine, it will be 365
hp. Lemme know what a VIN check tells you.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Light Switches & Speedometers

Man, I love these old trucks!, you can actually take
the switches apart and do something with them!

I tried to take the truck to early work last week and
was smart enought out check the lights first. The rear
lights didn't work at all. Got out the manual and
checked the circuit diagram and the removal instructions.
Very cool to find out that there is a little button that
releases the knob. Checked the output from the switch
to find no voltage. Looked closer at the switch and
noticed spring clips holding the wiring part to the
switch part. Undid clips and viola, a switch was in
my hands. Cuoldn't remember the cheap circuit cleaner
spray that someone recommended, so used rubbing alcohol
and flushed the switch while operating it, and now I have
functioning rear lights.

My speedo needle has been pressing against the glass, so
while the dash panel was out, I installed a spacer
between the speedo glass and the speedo, so the needle
runs free. Simple, cheap, low tech fix, I love it.
Maybe not so simple, until I used a piece of stiff paper
to hold the spacer on the screw so it wouldn't fall off
while installing the panel.

Saw a nice 67+ shortbed crewcab today, very nice.

What 351 C parts do you need ? I have one extra one that I may part with
later after I get another one rebuilt . That engine is easy to identify if
you aren't sure what you have ! Look at the area where the thermostat housing
bolts to the top of the block . It is very low in this area if it is a 351 C
. If that area raised ( about 1 to 1/12 inches ) then you have a 351M or a
400 . The area under the intake manifold coinsides with the height of the
area where the thermostat housing bolts to on all of these engines .
There are other differences in these engines but someone else with more
experience on the 351 M and 400 will have to take it from here .
Hope this helps .

Subject: FTE 61-79 - '62 F100 Stepside F/S $500 obo

I bought a '62 F100 Stepside last week to save it from the junkyard. I
have no room to stash it and I already have too many vehicles,
otherwise I'd keep it. It's in Berkeley, California.

More info....

Painted green with white, it also has a rack on it, as it was a work
truck. It's all there except tailgate and does run, but really needs
plugs, points, etc. and there is a bit of a crack in the side of the
block that seeps a little water. No water in the oil, though.

The body has some dents but no rust. It has lots of recently replaced
parts, and it would be a great truck for a restoration or even a parts
truck. I'm not interested in parting it out.

I want to see this truck go to a good home, as I already have 2 cycles,
a car and a truck to work on. So if you're interested, please let me
know vis e-mail. Yes, the price is negotiable.....

What do I look for? My truck was Canadian Built and its a 6 cyl. Does that
mean that I have a double-whammy to contend with?
