Howdy folks, just wondering if anyone on the list knows of a supplier for a
fan shroud for a 1969 F-100 with a 302 engine. I have tried the local bone
yards, and they are all either missing or in such poor shape as to be
unusable. Any help appreciated!

You're catchin on now! The CJ came out as a 68.5 model in the Mustang line,
that's when the KR version of the Shelby came out as well ... Shelby himself
always claimed there was no advantage to the KR over the previous versions
(less than 5hp), and recent tests on a dyno have proved him right (imagine
that) ... this applies only to the Shelbies that already had the nice
intakes and stuff on them ...

Anyway the bigger valves and such don't help any if you can't get it to
breathe, and with the 'stang engine compartment as small as it was, the
exhaust manifolds were the restriction (still are if you're anywhere near
stock...)

Hope that helps you out ...

I don't suppose someone's hacked at your wiring under the dash (aftermarket

at least goofy wiring ... I'm also making the brash assumption you mean the

brake Master Cylinder!! I filled it and drove for about 5 min and it did it
again!! I did a quick look and couldn't find any fluid leaking but i am not
for sure!! Any ideas where to start. It is a 1979 F150 400 V8 and 4x4!
Also this truck has only been driven three times since it sat for 8 years!!

Subject: RE: FTE 61-79 - Apprenticeship

Ok, I grew up as an air force brat but spent all of my teen years as a farm
boy next door to my grand dad's farm and living on my dad's 30 acre
gentleman farm (his dream which never really materialized). I began by
helping my grand dad with tractors and he gave me an old washing machine
motor, about 1/4 hp, all cast iron to play with. I took this thing apart
and put it back together so many times it was rediculous. Then, after I
deemed myself an expert I snuck a cushman scooter into my grand dad's barn
and secretly worked on it to get it running but my siblings told on me and I
had to own up to sneaking a forbidden "motor cyle" into my life :-( I then
progressed to rebuilding a 235 chevy by putting shims under the bearings
since we couldn't afford new ones, burning out the clutch trying to turn it
over and eventually getting the rods loose enough to run for about 6 months
before throwing a rod :-) From there it was a Triumph Spitfire, 3 Harleys,
a Norton, Suzuki and several vehicles: 66 ford, 70 montego, 67 pickup, 73
van etc. and then the 75 van which got several engines and a 4x4 treatment
and during that fiasco I took a local college course in engine rebuilding
which helped polish up what I had learned the hard way so far, essentially
with little help from anyone since I had more expertise than any of my
family by then (that is not saying much either :-)) My dad was an aircraft
mechanic but had trouble relating his experience to cars and trucks. He was
actually more of a leader than a doer so didn't realy get deep into the
mechanical parts of it. Made mastersgt in 4 years. Smart man but not a
natural mechanic :-)

Now I just basically fix what breaks and dream about having the time to
actually work on something just for kicks :-( I do have a method though
that works pretty well for getting new stuff bolted on.......when the
exhaust goes out for instance I find that the manifolds are not working well
either so need to be replaced with "headers".....an absolute essential to
keeping the work truck on the road :-) My wife always gets this lump in the
side of her cheek when I give her my explainations but it floats anyway...(I
think that lump is her tongue....in cheek :-))

My retirement shop is progressing nicely though and will be ready for me to
play in and meanwhile is providing a work space for "necessary" repairs :-)
That little add a room in the back of the barn has cost me nearly $1000 so
far :-( $200 here, $200 there, you know how it goes, eh? My method works
here too....I built a 8x15' space with 2x8 joists to store my daughter's and
wife's and step son's stuff on top of but an insulated work shop underneath.
I used sliding doors to allow a 56" opening and installed the white lattice
we used in my daughter's wedding on the exterior walls and sliding doors so
when the doors are closed the whole wall is one long lattice work with white
lights in it so we can have parties there by simply sweeping the
floor.....the decorations are already in place :-) They still don't really
accept this as equal treatment but I manage to slide it by this way :-)

BTW, this last bit of tutelage is absolutely required learing for married
truck nuts :-) You have to have a method to keep your hobby :-)

Yes, lead is required for higher octane, but is the anti-knock compound
(lubricant) as everyone has said. But the lead is not the compund that
actually raises the octane.

Have you checked brakes, IE bled them to be sure all the air is out of the
line ? You could be just forcing the fluid in where none has been for some
time ...

Also check and see if the m/c looks wet .. .mine seems to push itself out
the top, but I'll be replacing that soon enough that I just keep it filled
up ...

From: "Peters, Gary (G.R.)"
Subject: RE: FTE 61-79 - Best Compressor

Before you get the 7.5 hp model CH, check your electric service and make
sure it will handle 218 LRA, that's lock rotor amps which is what you get
when the switch first clicks on. Mine turns off the neighbors lights when
it starts and at a rated 30 amp continuous draw it drops my household 240v
voltage 5 volts at steady state due to poor service lines from the
transformer.....:-(

I agree that Campbell Housefeld is the best. I've had two and one has run
with no oil change or refill for over 20 years. Don't even know if it has
any in it any more :-) I am taking better care of my new one though :-) It
has a sight glass for oil level, don't have to take out any plugs to check
it :-)

My first one was a 1 hp induction motor I got at a junk yard and a CH single
cylinder, oil splash pump. It would run any impact I have but would not
keep up with sanders or die grinders etc. and sufficed for pumping up tires
etc. for 20 years. If this is all you plan to do then why waste good money
on more than you need? A 3 or 4 hp with a 4-6 cfm output at 90 psi is
sufficient for this kind of thing but if you plan on blasting, running body
tools like sanders etc. then a 5 hp is minimum with about 9-12 cfm or so at
90 psi. If you plan on blasting you will need more cfm and more pressure as
well. Most of these smaller ones only have a rating of 130 psi which is not
enough for efficient blasting.

For heavy duty work like blasting, painting, sanding etc. you need 175 psi
cuttoff with 25 cfm at 90 or so for the best results. Mine puts out 28 cfm
at 90 and almost 20 at 175 but turns the neighbors lights off when it starts
so you have to consider all the facets of your needs and the power you have
available.

Gallons simply means recovery rate or time you can use it before it is
depleted. It gives you a cushion. If you are doing small paint jobs,
running an occasional impact and pumping up tires and have sufficient cfm
in the pump then 20 gal is fine or if you use it only occasionally and have
to pump it up every time then 20 is better unless you are running marginal
cfm capacity and need the buffer of more gallons. An 80 gal tank is very
large and takes up a lot of space so consider all your needs and make a
package based on that, not what's purty or cool or......:-)

Here's a typical problem: you need it to hold up for 3-4 minute bursts of
use and have some scheduled wait time between bursts in virtually every
instance you plan to use it then a small pump and moderate tank make sense
but if you will be running high cfm's for longer periods with no breaks you
need a much larger pump and with larger pumps you have larger motors which
run more efficiently if you run them for a longer period of time so a larger
tank then makes good sense. Small motors run more efficiently when warmed
up too but they draw less amperage so you have more options :-) You don't
want a motor with 218 LRA to start every couple of minutes, it won't have
time to cool off between starts and eventually will over heat due to this
amp draw. My 2.5 hp lift motor has a warning on it that if you jog it more
often than x seconds the warranty is void since this will do the same thing,
it's all a matter of degree :-)

If you are familiar with a water logged water pump you know what I'm talking
about here. The air in the tank is there to prevent the pump from running
every time someone turns on a tap. A water logged pump motor will burn up
pretty quickly due to over heating due to the LRA syndrome.

Jeff,

I wouldn't sweat it if everything is clean and working well. If you do wind

I like Clevelands, but you might be a little
dissappointed in the low end power you get with this
swap. A 360 is actually better for a truck than a 4
bbl Cleveland, unless you gear it pretty low and trim
those fat thighs. A 2bbl Cleveland would be better
with one of the 4V manifolds they make these days for
these heads. The 4V heads are real sluggish under
3500 roms, but will really ring your bell above that.
You need to look at how you plan to use it, if you're
going Pro-Street and gutting it and running 4.56
gears, a 351C 4V might be the ticket.

In my opinion(you guys knew I'd get around to it) a
390 properly put together will give you both low end
and strong mid and upper power, and pretty good
economy. From 1500-5500 in a heavy vehicle it'd be
hard to beat a 390 for the combination of power and
economy, and I like it better in a truck. (Dennis is
loading his flamethrower) If it's just power you want
go with 514 ci 385 series. The 351C 2V would be OK,
but a 390 will still take it. Heck, they will take a
lot of 460's on. (flame retatdant array fully
activated) And a 351c 4V can be down right doggy
unless you gear it right. Then it's wonderful,
there's nothing in the it's displacement class that
will hit you harder at 4000 than one of these!

I don't know, but the swap would probably include what
ever it takes to put an M-block in one. You might
look in that direction.

As I remember the door just pops off the shaft it is mounted to. Just
gently pull it forward.
If you're not comfortable with this you might try looking with a mirror and
flashlight and see if you can see the clips. I'm pretty sure it just snaps
off and on.

I did use the posted instructions on the FTE site .I am interested where

Do I have to reach into the small blower compartment a feel around ie.

It is probably leaking past the MC piston into the vacuum booster for the
brakes. (Power brakes right?). Stop the truck and hold pressure on the
pedal. Does it slowly go down? This happened to me. In two cases it was
not long before the vehicle became unsafe to drive. Replace the master
cylinder and when you do remove the Vacuum booster and drain the brake fluid
out of it.

wouldn't a turbo disel in an older ford truck be neat, a friend of mine has
one in his dodge, he gets 25 miles to the gallon, and alot of power. those

the powerstroke would be nice, but they look to be very complicated and

A friend converted his 75 Blazer to diesel - required new brake m/c I think,
and makes smog checks interesting here (in spite of the fact he does his
own).

Seems like a good idea if you have the resources - time, money, lots of
spare parts - he's got good power and incredible mileage. And it's not even
a turbo.

Yo Jeff:

Sorry to be so late responding to this, but w/ holidaze, etc....

As for the 351M-->400 swap, yes, it is an easy upgrade, and in most
jurisdictions (including CA!), smog-legal to boot. (Every year in which the
351M was available from the factory, the 400 was also available in the same
vehicles.) As for keeping stock appearances, there is no external difference
between a 351M and a 400, and as (I think) Steve L. suggested, you could keep
the 351M valve covers w/ the 351M e-sticker and no-one would be the wiser.

>... Neither M-block seems
>to have a huge following, with all exceptions
>subscribing to this list

Yes, and that is one of the things that makes this list great!

>My question - IS it an upgrade?
> would this give me more power?

Upgrade power, yes again! One of the biggest improvements you can make in an
M-block is increasing the compression ratio, and the 400 allows several options
for doing that. Your only practical option to increase compression in a 351M is
the expensive TRW forged pistons (8.6:1), and even those don't get near the
9.0:1+ possibilities you have with the 400. There are several nice
Cleveland/M-block cams out there to make that compression useful.

>Or do I care, since I mostly drive long distances
>to the desert and go really, really slow over rocks?

You could easily build a 400 that wheezes out a mere 350 lb-ft torque from 2000
rpm to well over 4000 rpm. That's power you can use in 4-low crawling over
anything your tires can hang on to.

>Just stick to adding TRW pistons to the 351M?

As mentioned earlier, I don't think that's worthwhile. Those same dollars spent
on a 400 would go a lot farther toward significant power improvements.

>know any hidden bugaboos to 400 conversion
>that would haunt this shade tree kid? Especially
>in California?

Since the 351M and 400 use exactly the same block, heads, intake manifolds, and
exhaust manifolds/headers, it is literally a drop-in proposition. Your biggest
potential problem would be meeting tailpipe emissions standards if you go too
far w/ a cam. Otherwise, you'll be limited to CARB-approved components
(particularly the carburetor), but a 351M build-up has the same limitations.
Given the advantages of the 400 (more cubes, higher compression) and the same
constraints, you'll get significantly more usable power w/ a 400.

I had one years ago in a '68 F100 with a 360, and I've had them in several
vehicles over the years, Ford Trucks and not...
Everyone I've ever used had a self-limiting cut-off to keep it from pumping
too much gas into the carb. I always assumed it worked on back pressure
from a full gas line. I don't remember any of them having a switch that
would shut the pump off in case of too much gas being pumped...but I never
had an accident in a vehicle with an electric pump (luckily)...I guess it
could be scary...

I believe Steve D. put one in his truck. Steve you still out there?
I'm not sure if he has a write up on it or not. The usual fair is to
put an oil pressure switch in but the use of one of those speed gravity
things( what's the word I'm looking for) might also be a good idea. The
pump itself is usually wired to run with 12v and that is it.

I'm trying to remember the actual position and mechanics of the mechanical
pump. It seems, for lack of a plate or cover, I simply somehow removed or
shortened the pump arm so that it no longer made any contace and then just
used the mechanical pump itself as a cover...Does any of this seem
feasible, or am I remembering some other vehicle I did this to. It'll be
dark and late when I get home, so I won't remember to look at my 352...

My former employer had a 68 F250 with a Turbo Dagenham Diesel in it,
the engine came out of a C700, got 19mpg loaded, unloaded, uphill, downhill
or whatever. And sounded better than the Cummins too....

My 66 has a 390 with electric fuel pump. It has the block off plate for the
fuel pump, so some company does make them, can't recall who at the moment.
I am using the oil pressure switch with mine for safety.

Subject: Re: FTE 61-79 - 302

Mustangs came with carbed (600 cmf) 302's until 1986
then they went to fuel injection. I think they had 4
speeds in 79 and 80 but the rest are T5 5speeds. It
would be alot of work dropping a 5 spd mustang tranny
in an older ford truck. The linkage in the older
trucks is mechanical while in the Mustangs the linkage
is cable driven. I would also wonder about the
position of the shifter. Later ford p/ups came with 5
speeds but they do not have mechanical clutches
either.

Good luck.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - cab on, no brakes

Well, I replaced the cab on my truck. First and last
time I ever do that. I forget who answered my
questions about that, whoever it was, thanks.
Problem now is that my brakes dont work. I reused all
my old components which used to work fine. Now when I
press on the brakes, they'll stop the truck just fine,
however the pedal wont come back up unless I pull it
up.

Anyone have any Ideas?

I've comtemplated the "armless" :-) fuel pump and making a plate if I can't find
one. I would like to just buy one, guess I'm getting lazy in my old age.

Phil, if you find out where yours came from, let me know.

Thanks,
