Ted, give us some details on the welder. How does it work? Does it have a
reel that feeds the wire and how many amps is it? How thick of metal does
it weld and how much did it cost? Will it work on a standard 20 amp house
circuit?

Why not use the 455 for trading bate and secure a bolt in engine for the
F100? That might be easier and quicker than forcing a 455 into an unhappy
F100. That way, the guys on FTE will be willing to talk about any problems
you have!

Gary....Norm here......long time no type......LOL
I dunno why you would be having these probs getting it into low
range.......In Dahorse all I do is pop it into neutral (the tranny) and
slide it into low case.......no grinding clashing ect....Now I am betting
mine gets used in 4x4 more than most but hey....it has always been that
easy...... even after consecutive differant transfer cases ect....... maybe
I have just been lucky!

I don't want this to sound to much like a plug for Lincoln
Electric. I used their stuff in the fab shop I worked at in Toledo 15 years
ago. It came through every time, so, here it goes.
It works with a flux-cored wire. No shielding gas required. They
send a 1lb spool with it. What got me was, a 2lb spool of .035 wire was
$23. A 10lb spool was $45.
115v/60hz single phase 20 amp circuit, 15 amps Canadian input.
Output is 88 amps 18V with a 20% duty cycle. 62 amps, 20V Canadian. Output
range is 30-88 amps US, 30-62 Can. Open circuit V is 32. Wire speed is
50-300 IPM.
The recommended thickness is 16 gauge to a 1/4". I know from
experience, with some beveling and multipass, you could probably go a
LITTLE thicker. This machine can be adapted to weld with gas to make it
true mig for about $110. It increases your capacity to 5/16". It also lets
you weld stainless and aluminum.
The manual has these questions: Do I want simplicity and
portability? Will welding be performed outdoors or under windy conditions?
Do I require good all position welding capability? Will most welding be
performed on 16 gauge and heavier, somewhat rusty or dirty materials? Weld
must be cleaned prior to painting,
I love the idea of using 115v to run the thing. I haven't done any
welding for about 7 years. I went outside yesterday before work to fart
around with it, it was like riding a bike.
The only thing I don't like is the slag left by the "flux". It
only took a wire brush to get off. It's not like slag from a stick welder.
Otherwise, this thing is the cats behind.
I got the machine, 10 extra tips, 10lb spool of wire, and adapter
spool for the 10lb spool for $426 with shipping from Sears. They have one
that can't be converted for I believe around $200.

Ted, I had a gas-converted Lincoln, SP-100 I believe, years ago, and
if you can afford it, convert it. It is not a heavy-duty machine, but they
are great for alot of things around the shop, or garage. I used mine
to make many useful things and repair this-and-that.

Have fun.

Let me know. I'll try! We've got guests over this weekend; but they

>I have a 351M400 under my hood, wouldn't it look the same?

If your engine still has its original valve covers, and noone has
swapped out the crank and pistons, you can tell by reading
the sticker ... it will have "Engine Family 351M 400" and
"Displacement 351" or "Displacement 400". Other than that,
if you can't be sure of just how original your engine is, the
351 and 400 do look the same ... the only way to really
tell without pulling it apart is to examine the stroke of a piston
via a spark plug hole and dowel. 351 = 3.5" stroke
400 = 4.0" stroke

Forest, I just got through putting new floorpans in my 70. I got them from
JC Whitney. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and they fit with a
minimal amount of trimming (depends upon how much metal you want to replace)
I thought that the cost was reasonable...about $30 each if I remember
correctly.

Hope this helps

Howdy!

Well it has been a while since I emailed the list. I recently moved from
Texas (finished school finally!) to the great state of Michigan to work for
Ford as a Product Design Engineer in the electrical side of the business.
It is great to get paid for your hobby! I have a small problem with the
292 my 63 F100. When I start it up in the mornings it is leaving black
smoked spots in the pavement. I think it is running to rich, right? I
have tried adjusting the carb (2 barrel) manually with just a plain old
screw driver, but I have had no luck. How can I calibrate the carb
correctly so that I can get rid of this small problem? Thanks in advance
for all of your input and it is great to be back!

Subject: RE: FTE 61-79 - Horn not working

Yes, the horn circuit works by grounding one end of the horn relay. The
horn should work if you ground the spring pin to the steering shaft. BUT if
the steering shaft is not grounded (remember the rag joint we sometimes talk
about here?) it won't work. Try grounding the spring pin to some point on
the frame/dash etc. I bet it works then. There should be a wire that
connects the upper steering shaft to the lower shaft at the rag joint. If
the wire is gone or broken then the upper shaft is not gronded and the horn
won't work.

My 390 has been doing this same thing scince I've owned it and I blame
it on condensation carrying carbon flakes out the pipes. It seems to do
it no matter how the carb is tuned.

Vic's Broiler is located at 15901 West Valley Highway, Tukwila. From
I-5 take 405 to EXIT 1, head south (right at the end of the off ramp)
about 1/4 mile and the restaurant is on the right hand side of the
road. Coming south on 405, take exit 1 (West Valley Highway, and head
south following the above directions.

If you need more specifics, please email me directly (offilist since I'm
