There should be a date code stamped in on the front of the engine just above the waterpump area. If you can't find that you might look for the casting code of the block as a "general" guideline, but not anything conclusive.

The adapter you speak of sounds perfect, but: $300.00 (I'm on the same side
of the border) hurts. I picked up the IMPCO vaporizers and mixers for
$500.00 (used). Then again a new tunnel ram costs $439.95 plus gaskets and
is only good through 2800-9000rpm (Canadian Hi-Performance Discount -
www.hi-performance.com).
If you know when they are available and hopefully at a better price please
let us know, or: even dimensions and a picture and I'll see if I can get one
fabricated. Thanks.

I Imagine it would, but with a 460, Theres so much bottom end, I dont think
Id loose enough to worry about. Now hood clearance is another matter.
Anyone out there got a dual tunnel ram on a 460 in a 73-79? Am I gonna
clear, or will I also be installing some sort of hood scoop? Man, Im buildin

How did your F-100 become a crew cab? I would love some photos, if you
can send any. I have a '64 F-100 SWB Custom Cab, and I like looking at
what other people have done to theirs.

By the way, do you have any pics. you can send of your baby(truck)? I haven't

Have you ever had one of those days????

I'm in the finishing stages of my FE rebuild and I installed my oil filter
adapter. I looked everything over and slapped it on there. Today I started
second guessing myself and decided that instead of risking oil starvation by
having the gasket on wrong, I'd pull it off gently and check. Naw...it
wouldn't seal that quick with no liquid to help it seal....right??
Wrong...that bad boy had sealed beautifully and the gasket was on correctly!
Now I've destroyed the only gasket that doesn't come in a kit (at least
that's what I'm told) and will have to buy a set of gaskets for this motor
again. I guess the moral to the story is....check twice and torque once.

Anybody got or know where I can get an oil filter adapter gasket??

I'm calling FelPro in the morning in hopes they will understand and sell me
the one gasket.

That's why I keep a gasket variety pack and an exacto knife handy!

Ted,

Been there, done that, have the t-shirt. Ford still has that gasket. Have
your ford dealer order you one it's only $4 or so. If that doesn't work,
just use the old one as a pattern and make a new one with some gasket
material. If found that that works great too.

Yes, the trim for the 64 is different than that of the 65/66 trucks. The
65/66 trim was wider at the rear and tapered on the doors. Aside from that
it just looks different. As far as I know, no one makes repro trim for the
64's. I'm sure if they did it would be a hot item. One of the problems in
finding 64 trim is that it was only used as a full set for that one year- I
think. The 61-63 trucks used the 57-60 style beds (except for stepside and
unibody) and I don't THINK (but not sure) the 64 style trim was used on the
beds. I suppose the 64 style trim may have been used on the cabs? (espec on
stepside???) I really don't know that much about the 61-63, so I'm just
guessing about most of this stuff. Maybe someone out there knows more about
the trim used on the 61-63 trucks can enlighten us about it.

Josh,

I did this on a 69' Bronco. It is almost the same as what you are trying to
do.

I put the d44 axle tits in a jig and turned the id of them to 3.10 to match
the ID of the D60. I then mounted the arms to the loose tits and axle and
put it all under the truck and set my caster. I then welded the tits and
made the track bar mounts and was done with it all. It sound simple but
there was a lot of work to do it all right. For steering I would sujest
buying Performance Unlimited's Rod Ended DOM tubing steering set up. It is
GREAT and well worth the $. I do not feel I could have sourced all of the
parts and come out cheeper. You cna check out some of my stuff :

Performance Unlimited's sight is:
