I think it's also supposed to provide break away for the column so the driver
doesn't get nailed by the steering shaft in a crash situation.

Subject: RE: [61-79-list] 390 ticking
Importance: High

I had the same proplem when I put my 390 together. I had a tall cam put in
and used the lifters and valve springs recommended for my cam. But what I
thought was one lifter ended up being about 8 lifters. I found this out by
pulling off the valve covers and using a piece of rubber tubing to listen to
the top of the valve stem. The ticking noise wasn't loud, not like a
completely collapsed lifter, but it was loud enough to hear inside the cab,
and like you said it faded in and out. Like you, I double checked my
preload and everything was correct. When I took it to my Grandfather, who
is a well known mechanic/machinist in this area, he told me that the
increased lift simply made the valve train a little louder and more
noticeable than a stock valve train. I've put 5000 miles on the engine so
far and it hasn't gotten any worse. I have decided to ignore it. My
neighbor's truck makes the same noise and it doesn't bother him. Not the
most scientific approach in the world, but your not alone.

FE guys,

I just installed a new cam, springs, and lifters in my truck, but now I
am getting a slight ticking noise. Last night I pulled the manifold to
check the lifters and cam and everything looks real good. The lifters
where perfect on the bottom and there was oil everywhere. I should also
note that the original pushrods where to long (I figure because of the
reground cam that was in it) and I ended up replacing all of the
pushrods with ones that where .040 shorter. I measured the preload on
the lifters and everything looks fine.

Anyone have any suggestions on other things to look for that could be
ticking... I can't figure out where it is coming from.

Oh, one last thing... I am thinking of putting up a web site dedicated
to ford FE engines, and am wondering how many people would be willing to
contrib info, or even use the site.

Thanks

Subject: Need Sources for 429/460 Exhaust Manifolds (not headers)

Hi,

I have a 429 that is supposed to be of '68-ish vintage in my
'79 F-250 4x4. When I got the truck, the passenger side
exhaust manifold had a big crack in it. Apparently not too
uncommon on these engines.
I looked all over town, and finally found one in a junkyard,
still attached to a junked 429, which coincidentally had been
in a '68 T-Bird. Only thing that was weird about it was that
it was apparently an "improved" part. Instead of being a
relatively smooth round casting, this one had raised cast
"ribs" running lengthwise down the outside of it, which the
junkyard dude reckoned were to add strength (because of the
aforementioned propensity to cracking), but now that I think
about it, could also be for cooling I guess.

Anyway, 10 years later, the original smooth-looking one on my
driver's side has a crack in it, so I need another one. Can
anyone recommend a good source for these (preferably the
improved type, but the original type is fine, too)? It was
hard enough finding one ten years ago, and apparently that
was the extent of the local supply (Cincinnati, OH).

Thanks in advance,

Sean

My dash pad is in bad repair. Has anyone had any experience with the
aftermarket pads? How about experience with painting one to match the
interior?

Subject: C-6 Wide ratio

Heygang, I ordered a wide ratio kit for a c-6 yesterday. I had to do a little searching to find one. I have been told that the c-6 kit has been discontinued. If anyone was planning on this mod, you had better get it ordered soon. The only ones left are what is on the shelf. Mine is coming from WA state, and I live in
PA. Just thought I would share.

many care.

I have been busy updating my web site. I would really apprecite if I
could get some of you to test drive it for me. Please report any problems
you experience and I am particlularly interested in hearing from all 1967

Steve, I guess when your talking about a wide ratio, your talking about a
lower first gear.
That is the only gear differences that I know of. If that is the case I
can pick that up at local trans parts store.

I have a used Edelbrock "Streetmaster" 460 Intake(aluminum). It has small
rectangle shaped intakes. I do not know what it's worth. Make me a
reasonable offer and pay shipping; it'll be yours.

It has been my recent experience that these are available from your local
wrecking yard. I happen to have 2 doors I might let go cheap, do you live
near here. What is a front panel? There are places on the net to find these
parts but they get premium prices, can not think of a name right now.
However, the wrecking yard will run you $100 to $150. And you probably will
not have to deal with shipping.
