I have a 1966 F100 and I need new weather-stripping for the doors and windows. The people at the parts stores laugh at me when I ask them about it. Any ideas where I can order the stuff?

Thanks

The Warner T-18 4 speed and the New Process 435 4 speed
ought to bolt right up in the same place as the Ford 3.03
3 speed. The t-18 and NP435 are floor shift, however, so
you will need a new hole in your floorboard to accommodate
the shifter if your 3 speed is a column shift unit.

My 1966 F100 has a 390 and a 4 speed manual transmission (1st is unsynchronized granny low). Are there any newer 5 speeds that would bolt on?

Thanks

==========================================================
for a few years they made a 3 spd O.D. floor shift tranny i know i have a 79
f100 with one with a 302 motor with 150,000 miles on it and have had no
tranny troubles with it
they look just like a 4spd top loader tranny BUT say ORION on them they made
2 types of O.D. in them for the final drive 1 i think was about a 25% and
the other about 35% overdrive
they will use the hurst linkage for them for the 4spd top loader with a
taller shifter for the trucks is all to clear the bench seat
there is NO oem linkage for these that i could find tho still in good
condition or new but the shifter still was being made a few years ago from
ford

Try Dennis Carpenter catalog or the Ford Truck Catalog from J.C.
Whitney.They both have all the weather stripping for around the side windows
(felt strips-anti rattle kits) & rubber door seals. I hope this will help
you out. Good luck with your '66.

Garrett- go directly to Dennis Carpenter or Autokrafters. They are the
best sources for what you need. And.........THEY won't laugh at you. Good
luck, Phil (64 F-100)
P.S.- LMC is another good source but they run a lot higher then most.
They have a slick catalog though.

Hello! I have a 69 F-250 4x4 and I am wanting to change my wipers from the
old two speed to intermittent wipers. I have heard that it is possible to
change the old switch to a newer one out of a late 70's to early 80's
pickup. If this is true, I would like some info. Thanks!

The 70's series of trucks used the same design for the intermittent wipers
system It was a switch in the dash, and a control module mounted under the
dash. To make the system work, you'd need both. I know from experience that
my wiring harness in my 73 F100 was a direct swap over. Unplug from the old
switch, plug it into the module, then the module into the new switch. The
fastest upgrade I've ever done. Now if the connector is the same as your 69,
then it should work. At best, you'd have to find a place to mount the module.
I spose you could always change the plug on the wire harness if yours is
different. Depends on how far you want to go.

What was the advantage of the Flexomatic leaf spring suspension compared to a standard leaf spring suspension? Better ride or handling? Thanks,

Thank You In Advance

If you do decide to grab the cruise make sure you get the brake power
booster and the brake pedal assembly. They are required to interface with
the brake activated switch. As I remember the list you need is: vacuum
resivoir, vacuum check valve, throttle servo, speedometer cable, control
module and wiring harness. If you have any questions let me know.
