Can anyone help me? I'm trying to install a 390 in my '77 F100, and I'm having trouble with the motor and trans mounts.The trans is a C-6 out of a 72 F250.I was just wondering if anyone makes a conversion mount, or what I have to do to make this conversion work. When I went to put the motor in, the motor mount towers had to be moved forward, and the oil pan is resting on the cross member. I'm at wits end, and nobody seems to be able to help me. If anyone knows what to do, I'd really appreciate the help. THANKS, DAVE FROM ILLINOIS

Subject: Transfering R12 between vehicles?

I am again going to show my ignorance concerning A/C systems.

I have two vehicles using R12, an 86 Volvo and a 73 F250. Both have partial
R12 charges. The Volvo's getting an R134A retrofit shortly.

Here's the question. Using only a standard R12 manifold/gauge, can I
transfer the remaining R12 in the Volvo to the truck? That is, can I hook
the high side of the Volvo through the manifold to the low side of the truck,
start both engines, open the valves and thus evacuate the Volvo and recharge
the F250?

Thanks in advance.

Excellent cam choice.I don't think Ford still carries the CJ cam,but I
believe Lunati makes a duplicate.One more year and my 76 will have it's
25th birthday which means no more smog tests and then a CJ cam will go
in my 428.

That's how it always works.....I just bought a set of Heddman Hedders

How do these hdrs work exiting through the fender well as
far as mud and dirt and such ?

I am considering this type of hdr for my 1966 4x4 460 truck project.
This will end up being a Super Stock puller also used around the farm.

You would also be transferring the air and contaminants in the Volvo system
to the truck. In theory, it might work, but I wouldn't try it. The correct
way to do it would be to have a licensed A/C technician recover the
remaining R-12 from BOTH vehicles and then recharge the truck.

I have been a member for about a year but have only posted a few times. I
now have a problem that I hope someone can recognize and help me out. '71
F-250 with a 390, C-6, Performer Intake, Holley 4-barrel, Mallory Dual
Point. The problem: My son was driving the truck down the freeway when he
let off the gas for traffic and the truck died. He restarted and got about
50 feet when it happened again. Towed the truck home and so far I have
reset the points, checked condition of spark plug wires, checked cap and
rotor, made sure all coil wire connections are tight, and checked float
level in carb. What happens is the truck will be idling and/or running fine
for a few seconds or minutes and then suddenly start to stall. I can
sometimes keep it going by feathering the throttle and sometimes not. This
also happened to me when I took the truck around the block and it was
running fine for about a mile or two and then it happens again. After it
has died I have also looked into the carb and gave it throttle and gas
squirts out every time. Because it is intermittent it is driving me crazy.
Has this happened to anybody on the list and if so what the heck is going
on? What do you guys think? Do coils go bad and if they do how do they
act? What about the little block on the engine block that the coil wire
runs through I think it's called the ballast? For that matter how about
those coil wires and/or the condenser? (points, condenser, cap and rotor
are all about 1000 miles old.) Does anybody recognize the problem?
Help!! By the way I rebuilt the carb about a year ago and so far have not
had any problems.

Check if you are getting good spark by sticking a screwdriver in one of the spark plug boots, then holding onto the insulated end of the screwdriver and holding the metal part close to a good ground. You should get a good strong blue spark. Also use a timing light and check the spark timing.

Check the fuel filter too.

Yes, what you propose will work. Keep and eye on the suction pressure such
that you not over charge. But, I would take the pressure to the maximum in

Not sure what you mean when saying you have saved it by feathering the
throttle. Do you mean pumping the throttle? If so then I would definitely
suspect the fuel pump. If not the fuel pump, yes, it could be the coil or
any loose wire leading to it. When I was running my truck with the 360 in it
the coil caused did just what you describe, I replaced it and it ran fine. I
know you said there was fuel in the bowl, but I would check out the fuel pump
first.

ATF in it's 5 speed. It surprised me when I first heard it, but I looked it

After reading this post, my first thought was a fuel system problem. The
needle & seat could be sticking, or there could be debris inside the fuel
tank. The screen on the fuel tank pick up tube has probably long since
rotted away, and debris could cause the intermittent stalling described. It
might also be a good idea to inspect the length of wiring near the engine
coil looking for a bare spot that occasionally grounds out to the block.

The trim on the 64's was different than the 65/66. The 65/66 was wider on
the bed and tapered down to a more narrow piece on the doors (if my memory
serves correctly).I don't know why no one offers repro 64 trim- other than
the fact that the 65/66 are more popular for resto.

Oh yea , thought of
something else . If I do end up putting the molding on my 64 , where should

I have pics (undevelopped as of yet) of the factory paint job on a 64 so that
I could reproduce it on my 64. The colors met at the side moulding. But,
since the moulding does not go all the way to the end, there is a couple of
inches at each end where the trim does not cover the line where the colors
meet. Maybe someone else can give you more details, but that's as specific
as I can get from memory.

Hi guys, has anyone heard of an FMX transmission? I have one in my 66
f-100. It had a 352 but putting in a 390 now. Can anyone give me some
history on the FMX? Will it work well with the 390? I would appreciate
any info on it. Thanks, Donnie

not i have seen this FMX tranny behind even 428s and has held up well i know
of one a young fella had that i dont think ever took off without the tires
smoking WHY it doesnt get the attention the c6 does is beyond me they just
never seem to wear out just last fall i stuck one behind my 390 in a 62 t
bird SO FAR it has held up well as expected even now ALLOT of the wrecking
yards still have them because they were yanked out of cars years ago but
just never seemed to sell because they just kept on running
stick it behind your 390 i am sure it will take just about anything you can
give it really

The initial email you receive is a request for confirmation, not a
confirmation. It asks that you mail it back and it contains a
verification code. This prevents others from removing you.

>Can anyone help me? I'm trying to install a 390 in my '77 F100, and I'm
having trouble with the motor and trans mounts.The trans is a C-6 out of a
72 F250.I was just wondering if anyone makes a conversion mount, or what I
have to do to make this conversion work. When I went to put the motor in,
the motor mount towers had to be moved forward, and the oil pan is resting
on the cross member. I'm at wits end, and nobody seems to be able to help
me. If anyone knows what to do, I'd really appreciate the help.

on the same idea... greasing up your truck is the best
