Yes, I am looking for the trim that goes right in front of the driver's
door on the cowl between the hood and the door...My truck is a 250
Camper Special...I just looked at the truck on your web page and it
looks the same...I messed up a perfectly straight truck awhile back by
not watching an open driver's door as a backed up to hook up to another
vehicle...The door hit a fence post, denting the cowl and bending the
chrome. I got the door back into place (the old two-by-four trick), and
the cowl is fairly straightened out, but the chrome is really beyond
repair...

Anyway, let me know what you want for it...

Bob,

You are partially correct about the PA lift laws. Its 30" to the bottom
of the bumper, not the rocker panel or door. That's why you see a lot of
lifted trucks in PA with drop bumpers to get back down to 30".

NJ calls for 20? I see trucks from NJ that are lifted much higher than
the
lowest part being 20 inches off the ground... are they not legal? Do you
happen to know the PA limit? I believe the PA requirement is 30, but I
could be wrong.

-----Original Message-----

Stock broncos are 20-21 inches to the bottom of the door. I have 4,
78/79 broncs and this height is correct. NJ calls it 20 for lift
requirements.

I'm considering the idea of setting up a Merc registry for those trucks built between about '46 and '68. As
most of you know, these were built for the Canadian market but I see quite a few have filtered down
to the States over the years. If there's any interest, please contact me. I'll be interested in all the data

Don is right on here, Lisa. I have done 3 color change jobs. The tough part
is getting all of those hidden places like where the doors open and you can
see down in the fender. It is vital to remove all chrome. Don't forget under
the hood and under the carpet. An uninformed person's first thought is wreck
damage. In my case they would be partially right, I am a wreck. I have been

Subject: Re: headers for a 400?

Headers aren't the problem they are available for both 4WD and
2WD. If you have 4WD you can even get a hooker exhaust system to
bolt to them. They make a system for headers AND manifolds. If
you are like me with 2WD we are both in the same tank. I am
tempted to buy the 4WD system and get out the torch and welder!
The exhaust system sends both pipes down the Right Side, I assume
this is to clear the aux tank(I have that as well). Someone MADE
the dual ex sys on my truck but I don't know who!
PAW shows all the parts I mentioned in their catalog.

Subject: D60 Front
Date: Tue, 20 Jun 2000 15:25:31 -0700



Hopefully tomorrow I'll have time to go pick up my D60 front. I am going to
put it under my 86 F150 that i converted to a solid D44 about a year ago.
It has been working great but I have constantly been snapping the D44 axle
shafts....Probably due to a heavy right foot and a healthy 460 but anyway.
And since I am swapping my 35's for some 38.5's It was only going to get
worse. So in goes the D60.

Anyway... my front suspension is pretty much identical to a 79 F150, And I
thought i would ask for some advise from people who have done this before.
Anyone?

I have taken the radius arm mounts off a D44 to weld onto the D60 axle
tube, but i am assuming the D60 has a larger diameter tube. Are they close
enough in size that I will be able to just grind or torch the inside of
theD44 mount to fit the D60 axle?

Track bar bracket is easy, and I think my existing steering should bolt up
just find. (Hopefully I'll have enough patience to do a tie rod over while I
am at it.)

Anything else people have run into?

Thanks

Just a quick question. Ive pretty much decided Im runnin propane on Tweety,
as the new 460 will be requiring 1.89 premium. Since the largest mixer is
only 450 cfm, Im definitely going to need to of em. My question is since
propane is gaseous, could I run a dual tunnel ram on a street motor without
the drawbacks it would have on a gas motor? I havent seen any dual-plane
dual carb setups for a 460 ever. But there are dual tunnel rams. Any info
would be great. Im thinkin a dual tunnel ram would be the hot ticket.....

I'll stick with Option-4 ;)

speaking of cents and spending money on trucks. Has anyone used rod
ends such as the ones in the four wheel magazine for tie rod ends and
such? Are Grade 8 bolts stronger than the stud on regular tie rod
ends?

What about some welding tips? Looks like they also use "heavy-wall
DOM or chrome moly tubing". Is chrome moly harder to weld than
regular tube? Is the regular tubing strong enough? I need a track
bar and drag link but if I could make them all the better? Maybe?

-You would not have a problem with that intake at all.

-If everyone interested can hold on for a few days I can send anyone
interested a
picture of a dual setup or 2 from a book I have on installations. I have it
on
an old hard drive with other info that i have to fax to another interested
member.

-What kind of mixer/ vaporizer do you have?
What kind of carb and intake are you trying to bolt it up too?

I've got a set of IMPCO 425's for the 460, their was an adapter made that
allowed you to use two mixers and bolted to a standard Holley square bore
manifold. It's no longer available directly but I've got someone looking
into it. I am curious though, the tunnel ram would still rob some of the low
end even with the gases nature of the propane wouldn't it? And yes If you
have more on an intake I (we) would love it. Thanks

Lisa,

I don't have a print catalog but I've got a URL to an online store.

I saw this place recommended on another list and I thought I'd pass it
along. I've got no connection to it.

It would rob a little but not much, the discontinued item your looking for.... I
know where there is one.
It is being measured up by 3 different shops (mine included) to be made and sold
back to the supplier through a local auto shop. ( they currently want $300
canadian for it... silly its only worth half that)

Kewl! You have my support. As much as we've grown over the years and
knowing a little about what this service would cost, I couldn't see how
you've been able to keep it going this long. Like Steve, I don't think I
could survive without my daily fix of FTE! This looks like a good way
to offset the cost without compromising the list.
Thanks again Ken, for all you've done and are doing for us. If
there's anything we can do to help, please let us know. Long live FTE!!!

Later!

Subject: Help with rear disc conversion
Date: Wed, 21 Jun 2000 08:25:50 -0500

Hey guys, a mostly lurking subscriber here -
I recently secured a 9" disc rear from an unknown model of car and wish to
use it to do rear disc conversion on my 69 2wd.

I could use information from anyone that has either done such a conversion,
has already researched it, or knows of a source for the info on how to do
it. I do not want to eat up a lot of bandwidth here prattling on about the
details, so if anyone can help, if they could email me off-list I would
appreciate it. As the project progresses I wil be happy to share the details
of it with the list as it all gets sorted out.

Thanks
Jim Elliott

Hey Steve!

It'll be on the top of the digest, and occasionally one will
run on the bottom where the current unsubscribe info is (this
will be when the client want a quick 1-2 day burst of ads).
We'll be working with a 3rd party company to supply them and
they insist on having it somewhere around the top. It will
be text message. A third party agency will be supplying the
sponsorship, therefore editorial influence will be
eliminated.

I wanted to avoid it, but the combination of the lists
eating up 40-50% of the server bandwidth (we pay bandwidth
fees) and taking FTE full-time has put us in a bind. It
was not an easy decision (I consulted with several list
members before doing it).

Subject: Steering swap

I'm sure you're all used to seeing that subject line. This time its a little
different, I'm actually working on the swap and have started a page documenting
my "progress"

I'll warn you its pretty basic right now, I've been getting setup for it for
a while now, just finally got started on it last night. Here's the URL for
those interested:

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.public.iastate.edu/~wish/Tech/Steering/steering.html

Oh yeah its for the old "assist" style steering on 4x4's to the newer (78/9)
"integral" style.


Enjoy.
