I just moved to Wisconsin and people have suggested using big bags of kitty
litter as weight -- it is also good for putting under tires to get unstuck.
And of course it's great for absorbing oil stains if you want to use it in
the future (assuming you have fewer than 20 cats). Personally, I also plan
to move my chest toolbox from in back of the cab to the back of the truck to
add one or two hundred pounds (depending on what you put in it) to the rear
axle. Might look kinda hojo, though ...

I've not really played with the dual tank trucks (my sis and dad both have
em, but not me) so I don't know how valid this is, but I almost wonder if
your valve isn't causing problems ... either leaking a little from either
side (hence you get a vacuum leak and suck air instead of fuel), or possibly
not really locking to one side and drifting a bit ...

I know how theirs work vaguely, but not sure on yours ...

Since there was a thread about dual vac lines and a governor on a F600, I'd
like to ask again (got no response the first time) about the anti-backfire
module on my 300 I6. The 2nd vac line from the distributor runs to this and
my last mechanic disconnected it during a tuneup saying he didn't see any
need for it. The engine runs great (and no backfire during deceleration) but
I'd like to ask Wish or Gary for a clarification: should I reconnect it? I
didn't follow the ported/unported explanation (sorry, I'm not too
mechanical)_but I really don't like seeing unplugged inlets on both the
dizzy and carb since he removed the rubber hose. BTW the main vac line runs
from the dizzy to the base of the carb (Carter 1-barrel). Should I leave
well enough alone? Thanks.

>>My 66 F100 is making an awful clunking sound that sounds like its coming from
the
rear. Sound exactly follows road spead and as best I can figure using my
Chilton's
manual it appears that I have a bad rear wheel bearing. I am going to make
a

appears that there are tools available (and probably necessary) for removing
the
axle and bearings, and I am going to try and rent these. Any thing else I
should
get? What about lubrication / cleaning fluids?

Bryan,

Don't buy parts until you have checked the u-joints in the drive shaft. :-)
Rear wheel bearings go whump whump, whump, etc. The u-joints are more tinny
and are louder as you pass close to a building are curb. How's that for a
technical description?

at it...

Okay so there is a line from the base of the carb to the vaccuum advance on
the dist, then another from the backside of the advance to the little
dashpot thingy on the carb ?

If this is truely the routing its supposed to have (this can get confusing,
its mostly for my own logic and to annoy Gary enough to correct me if he
thinks it works differently :) , I'd guess that somehow its rigged so when
you let off, the advance in the dist does its thing, the vaccuum diaphram
pulls, and by plumbing to the back side of it you'd get a momentary vaccuum
which would pull the dashpot and prevent the thing from closing all the way
and stalling ... more of an anti-kill device for between gears or quick
accel/decel actions ...

If this is truely what it does, then I would see no problem with leaving it
unhooked or hooking it up, it should only come into play on extreme dynamic
situations which may cause the truck to die, or sputter, or otherwise act
funny, for normal driving, I don't think you'd notice it either way ... so
its totally up to you ... you say you don't like seeing things unhooked,
hook it back up and pay attention for any changes ... like I said, I doubt
you'd notice any...


> didn't follow the ported/unported explanation (sorry, I'm not too
> mechanical)

That's fine ... as long as its working normally, there shouldn't be any real
issues with using one or the other ... if you are having problems with
off-idle hesitations or something though, you might consider switching the
source ... we may be able to help you out if it comes to that too ...

I dunno, if it works, I wouldn't mess with it ... but then its not my truck
either, on my own truck, I jsut can't seem to keep my fingers out of it :)

This weekend is looking like a round of installing a tonneau cover (actually
re-installing) a long with front and rear sway bars ... who knows maybe some
tuning and a little stereo wiring ... jsut about all ready for winter then

Come on, all you guys are makin me feel bad for pullin the cats off my car
too now
:( But I have talked with quite a few people who have passed the sniffer
with no cats in place only to fail the visual ... you gotta wonder what
these "regulations" are really for ... heck there was even a case of a
couple guys who restored a 49 Ford to stock specs ... fresh motor, new
points and good tune ... passed the CA emissions with flying colors ...
didn't even need a cat as it was pre-cat built ...

They admitted it was essentially a "new" 49, but I think it proves that
those of us who are always tinkering are probably running some of the
cleaner cars whether we want to be or not ...

I think I've mentioned in the past that even my lowly, much disparaged, 130K
mile 400 passes the sniffer with no cats (removed by PO). I don't have any
idea what the new engine is going to do but since I have to get it smogged
next month and it's good for 2 years I'll have some time to figure it out
after I drop the new motor in.

There's 2 wires that have been cut and there's no switch for it that I
can find. There's no mention of it in the manual so I'm guessing it's an
overdrive. Anyone seen one of these before? Are the wires just + and -?
With it up on jack stands it's a good time to see if it works.

Sounds much like a "Columbia" 2 speed rear of long ago.

Never seen one of these!!! If it is in fact an OD unit on a 9" FOMOCO rear I'm
more than a little interested. Keep us posted....
Where on the FOMOCO vehicles of this era is the "antilock brake device" that
keeps up with the rotation of the rear and signals the brake computer??? My
M*PARs have it on the rearend, but near the top in front up hi on the housing.
Kinda like a speedo cable entering the tranny, but is 2 electrical wires
connected to some kind of plunger apparatus that supposedly "counts" the
revolutions of the starter ring like device on the ring gear case..

Steve replied: >> Yup...They have a 250 Amp rating..

I've personally tried these FOMOCO starter relays(or solenoids or whatever - the
thing that sits on the passenger side fender), and have found that they won't
last if held "on" for really long periods of time. They always open, and I
assumed that they were not made to be held "on" for very long intervals,
because, after all, starters will burn up if held on for long periods. Don't
like knocking anything on our Ford trucks, but in this case I've not had good
luck. The older M*opars that had a relay on the cowl on drivers side that
supplied all the essential electricals with 12V, have been much better to me.
They always are energized when the ignition is on, so are made for continuous
operation. Don't have a clue as to the Amperage rating (is it OK to use a HOJO
term here), but I've had much success with these.

I've been following this thread for several days and man you guys are making

this problem for us. Go to Pep Boys or any other autostore, and look in the
electrical aisle. They sell a complete heavy duty wiring harness just for
aux. lights. It has a 30 amp relay, 20 amp fuse and 2-10 gauge wires
encased in a heat and gasoline resistant sheath. I recommend this and know
that it works because I have two pair of 150 watt daylighters (one pair per

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 390GT flywheel

I was wondering if anyone knows of a fylwheel for a
390GT that is for sale. Would the flywheel be
different for a GT motor? Also, it has to be an auto
flywheel. I am willing to trade a manual one for it or
sell it. The motor is out of a 68' Stang.

Yes,There is too much carbon in the cross over for just hot air.It must
be exhaust gas.I think I'll pull the head and shake the washer out of
it....While I have head off I might as well take my new sandblaster to
the exhaust manifold.Can't have one nice manifold tho..have to pull the
other side and blast it too.
Might have it back together by spring.

I just talked to my "official" Disabled Ford Mechanic Friend and he said it

OD. It raises the gear ratio, most likely installed for towing a trailer...

Sounds pretty neat, whichever way it changes the gear ratio...

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Rear Wheel Bearings

Bryan,
You may be able to get the old bearing off; but do not attempt to put the
new ones on yourself. A machince shop has to press them on. They will
press the inner race on to the shaft as not to damage the bearings. It
takes a huge arbor press and the right tooling. If you try to hammer them
on or press the inner race against the outer race, you will end up with
worse bearings than you started with. Also, before you put any money in
the axle, inspect the surface where the seal rides to be sure that it is
smooth. If it is pitted or scored, the seal will leak oil on to the brake
shoes and they will grab! I would let the machine shop take the old
bearing off since they have to get set up. It only take a couple of
minutes extra and I think it's worth it.

Dave:

The book shows the following: The right-hand arm should be the one that
is 12-1/4" which is stamped as 508. The left-hand arm should be 12-1/2" long
and stamped 440. I will try to confirm this with another vehicle for you

installed correctly between them as to right and left; second, did you
examine the other parts in the wiper system to see if the pivot assemblies or
other parts have any damage? In the meantime, I'll pray for dry weather
while we try to sort this out for you.

Ditto what Gary Peters is saying - everything makes a difference in the
vacume. It's all directly porportional to how hard the engine is working at
a given moment. For example - last week I could stand it no more - 3.3 mpg
on my 69 429 in my 79 F-150 4WD. The motor only has roughly 1100 miles on it
- - and the carb is about the only thing I haven't fixed on The Muny Pit. Took
this Holley off (I know - been reading everyone blasting it - but I'm not the
guy who bought it to put it on - just the fool who boought the whole dang
truck) and took it down to Dixons Speedshop and had him rebuild it. While it
was down, I got to looking at the intermentent climb in the temp gage while
sitting at lights. Found no air pull while sitting at idle. It had a 17
inch flexfan - probably some 20 yrs old. Went to Autozone and asked for a
fan for a 69 429 - they pulled out this huge 19 inch job - two inches bigger,
one blade more. Put it on. Got the carb back and got the whole death trap
rattling down the road again - only to be disappointed in this fresh carb -
having been told vacume is directly porportinal to gas milage. Before - at
70 mph - I had 17-18 on the gage. Before in 2nd or 3rd at a steady speed I
had 17-18. Now I had 16-18 in 2nd or 3rd at a steady speed - but on the open
interstate at 70 - I was only getting 10-11. WHY!!! Well, this week I found
a clutch fan in a boneyard on a 78 E-150 with a 460. Bought it because I
didn't like this 19 inch fan learjet sound at 3000 rpms. Put it on today at
lunch and guess what. That's right - seemed to gain 25 HP and vacume tonight
on the superspeedway was right back up there 17-18 at 70mph.

Neal,
How are your king pins? And on Ford's Twin-I-Beam remember that the axle
is actually two pieces and each half pivots from the frame. If your ride
height has changed due to spring sag, etc. this will affect camber. Make
sure all the wear items are checked/replaced.
If your Ford dealers can't/won't align this, then start calling truck
(big rig) repair shops. 20 years ago I was a bodyman in Minnesota and
routinely straightened frames and did alignments on trucks exactly as
what you need. Bending I -beams is how camber is corrected on trucks.
Did they say your Camber was OK? Tire wear is mostly toe in.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Re: Quadrajet on Offy 300 intake

Neal,
You'll need an adapter to a put a spreadbore like a Qjet on your Offy
intake. Which Offy do you have?
1.) Dual Plane/Dual Port model 6019, carb mounts sideways.
2.) Single Plane Competition "C" , carb mounts inline.
If you have the Competition "C" single plane, any Spreadbore-to-Square
adapter will work because all four barrels dump into a large single
plenum.
If you have the Dual Port 6019, it gets a little more complex. This
intake has one plenum and set of runners for the carb primaries, and a
separate second plenum and set of runners for the carb secondaries. Make
sure you get a four-hole spacer/adapter that maintains the separation
(like Jegs 350-2696). If you get a Spreadbore-to-Square adapter that
just has a large open plenum in the middle you have defeated the design
of the intake by tying all four barrels into one and both sets of intake
runners into one.
If you scrounge up a used a Qjet, get a good Qjet book so you'll know
what to look for and how to set one up. Avoid the early ('65-68?) ones
because they had a nasty habit of losing spun in plugs and sprouting a
leak. I used to hoard the big Pontiac 830 cfm versions with the
straight-in fuel line connector any time I ran across one. But any of
the 70's ch*vy QJets are easy to find and can be made to work great.
Just start asking around with the ch*v guys and you'll scare one up.

I know it's a little late on this one. Hockey pucks are the least
rubber like thing made of rubber, if that makes any sense. They have a very
high clay content that makes them hard as rocks. I can still feel the scar
on the inside of my bottom lip! Couldn't eat for about 4 days.
Anyway, the Beast is running again. It took a floor jack, some
small blocks of wood, and a couple of holes reamed out to get it all lined
up. It changed the gap on the passenger side door also. I think that could
be the rotted out cab mounts and the floor being gone. When I put the "new"
inner fenders in next summer, I'll address that problem.
Right now with the weather a little colder, with the exception of
the next few days, I can't get my new carb to "high idle". It will if I
pull the choke out when it's warmed up. It went down shortly after I put
the new carb on it, so it's still running a little rich. I don't know if
that would have anything to do with it? Any suggestions? I'm new at
fiddling with adjusting a carb any more than the curb idle adjustment. I
can always dig a book out but figured someone out there could give it to me
in plain English.
My next dilemma has to do with windshield washer plumbing. I've
been amassing the parts to add a w/s washer to my truck. I have the"See
Clear" bag, a brand new NOS foot pump and a couple of jets. I can't
completely figure out how the hoses hook up to this thing. There is a large
and a small fitting on the pump and the bag cap.Do I hook up large to
large and small to small? If so, which one do I tap into to go to the
washer jets?
As always, any and all help is greatly
appreciated.
