Hey guys and gals,

Time for me to pick your collective brain again. I'm wanting to replace
the standard lap belts in my '69 with a lap/shoulder belt. I've got the
captive nut in the B-Pillar, so that helps. I was looking at a friends
'95 Bronco and noticed it had the retractor out in the open, not tucked
insided the body, so I think this would be a faily easy swap. Has anyone
out there done this or something similar? Thanks for your help.

My brother had an '90 w/ that tranny n it and a couple of his buddies
had '89s with it. I believe that somewhere around '89 was the first
year for them.

Date: Sun, 28 May 2000 17:00:44 -0400

Hi all,
I'm beginning to reassemble my '70 F100 (once in 1000 pieces) and I need to
know what the torque values are for all of the body mount bolts. Does
anyone have this info, or know where I can find it? I've got the 4 shop
manuals, but neither seems to have this information.

Also, is there a 4 (or 5) speed tranny that is a direct drop-in for the
three speed unit?

TIA
Kind Regards,
Rogers Morris.

A trip to the scrapyard to get some replacement steering column parts and a
peek at a 77 F250 revealed the location of the switch...it's wired under
the dash to a flat black plastic connector. We grabbed one of the
connectors and will use it to make a splice cable between the plug on the
neutral switch and the plug under the dash.

Today was a very productive day - I figured out how to swap the wiring
inside the distributor, we replaced the broken shifter indicator and horn
mechanism on the steering column, figuring out the difference between 77
horns and 79 horns. The 77's seem to use a relay on the dash and have one
less wire in the steering column. The 79s don't have the relay but have an
extra wire in the column. The wire from the relay to the column on the 77
is a ground from the relay. When you press the horn, the route to a ground
is completed, the relay closes and the horn goes. On the 79's, without the
relay. The wiring going into the column is a power. Power goes in the
column, through the depressed horn switch and back to the horn. A quick
addition of a ground plug to the column harness connector and my horn is
now functioning!

We were about to leave the scrapyard when they mentioned they had just
brought in a truck the day before. We had a few minutes so we went back to
check it out and hit the jackpot. 79 F150 2WD with cruise control and tilt
steering column! We were able to grab the cool tilt column (never seen one
up here) and will probably go back for the AM/FM Ford radio, the cruise
control stuff and the nice looking grill and grill shell...

We're pretty sure the tilt column can be swapped into the 4x4...

Hi Folks,

I have a request for anyone whose willing to help out. I'm slowly (and
that's being optimistic) restoring my '77 F150 4X4. My windshield wipers are
next to useless and I didn't want those ugly spring assists. When I took
them off I found the springs badly rusted (big surprise up here in Ontario)
and the tab that holds the spring to the wiper had started to peel, both
contributing to poor holding power.
Does anyone have a set of these guts kicking about or a set of wipers in
good shape? The dealer wants a kings ransom for new ones but I would much
rather pay someone for a good set. Just e-mail me off list and we can set it
up. Also I have the gauges out of late seventies dash pod if anyone needs
any, the only score I made in checking all my local wrecking yards. It's
thinning out quickly because as the trucks rust and become lighter they get
less money, so the crusher has been racing me.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help out.

John

I believe it is 1990 to present. In 1997 it was renamed the 4R100 but they
do still make it for trucks with the 5.4L and larger engines.

I guess I have to find something 1989 up that came with
a 460. That ought to be easy! I wonder if anyone sells
rebuilt units? I ASSUME that the 4.6 and 5.4 bellhousings
are the same as the 5.0 351w 302 etc.
