Got my floor pans from Dennis Carpenter, good fit stout material, quick
shipping. A little more pricey than some, but I believe I got my monies
worth.

I've had a Hobart Handler welder for 5 or 6 years which has the gas
bottle and uncoated wire. It's simply fabulous for welding sheet
metal. It makes virtually anyone able to weld. I purchased it
originally to weld extensively on a Mustang restoration and have used it
for all sorts of projects.
By the way, I built a roll around cart for it using an old bed frame
that was chopped and sectioned.

Another friend has a similar Century brand equipped like mine and he
likes his just as well.

In the manual that came with it is a list of accessories. Right at
the top of the list is a cart for this machine. I looked at a Northern
Tools catalog and they want about a $100 for one. I about wet myself
laughing. I figure, if you've got a welder now, spend $20 for some good
casters and make a cart!!! : )

Actually I deferred my choice to the machinist. He told me that there wasn't
a huge difference in bearings and he would have used either but these are
what he typically used in engines he built. What I really think is that this
is what he had available on the shelf. I don't have a problem with either of
the brands, I've used both in the past and never had a failure so it's no
big deal to me.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Motor Mounts

One of the many "joys" of old trucks is the people that did things to them
before you! Custom amateur wiring! Cracked interior plastic, Etc.!
My 75 Highboy at some time in the past had a 460 swapped in where the
original FE was.
Ok, I can live with this. When I bought it I knew that the Pan was leaking
and the Clutch was shot, It runs good, they should last for a while...
So the Clutch let go sooner then I expected! I have the parts...
While gathering the ID #'s on the Trans so I can rebuild that too I notice
that the Drivers side engine mount is broken...
Go down to Baxter's and pick up engine mounts...
The engine was swapped by a "Chevy Lover"!
In order to put in a new mount you have to PULL THE ENGINE! They scab-welded
the frame towers, which I could fix... but then they welded them to the
frame, so I can't just drop the tower out and install the new mount!
I could build new towers, and correct the fact that they didn't level the
engine from sided to side... But SWMBO has placed a time limit on this
"repair" and after I pull the engine, replace the Clutch, rebuild the Trans,
replace the main seals, and repair the oil pan; there is just no-way that
I'll have time to build new mounts!
So, I know that this has been covered to death, but...
What frame towers do I need to put the 460 in my 75 F250 4x4, after I pull
the engine, Trans, and take the plasma cutter to the abortion that the
"Chevy Lover" scabbed in there!?!?!
At this point a bolt in fix is what I need, be it factory or aftermarket.

Does anyone know what size hole I need to drill to put some Blue Dots in
my taillights? A guy at work with a C! #y said he used a 15/16 wood bit.
Any help always greatly appreciated!

Thanks Colorado Jeff for getting us together!!!

We had a great time meeting this afternoon in Tukwila. It was fun
exchanging war stories and comparing notes about Ford trucks. If you
would like a few pictures of our little get together, go to:

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Horn not working, part II

I must be missing something. When you say the rag joint has to be
grounded (i.e., a wire between the joints) in order for the horn to work;
the rag joint is joined together by two 3/8-inch bolts. Doesn't this
"ground" one half to the other?

I just replaced my joint this weekend. There was a
wire from the top joint to the bottom one. It was a
little more fun then I thought it would. The horn
didn't work when the wire was not connected.

Just want to say thanks to the group who came out to meet me in Seattle for
lunch....Tim and Angie Bowman (his truck would make you proud, Stock Man),
"Mike in Burien" (cleanest 72? I've ever seen....plus, you can hear and feel
that baby coming down the block!), "Steve and the Rockette" (although too bad
he didn't bring "Rockette"), Josh and wife Chris (cool 72 F-100 4x4.....in
"pre-power steering" configuration....but we'll him get that straightened
out!), and Terry (with the most beautiful 429 I've ever seen....plus, he
helps make those Boeing airplanes fly)....

The best part about working on these old Ford trucks is meeting all the other
True Blue Believers!!!!!!!!

Thanks again gang!!!

Colorado Jeff (CJ)

.........

The rag joint does not ground the steering column shaft to the gearbox
shaft. A small ground strap provides ground, or the stock horn will not
work.
