Hello all,
There seem to be a few of us FTE'ers here in the Anchorage area, so I was
thinking that we should arrange a get-acquainted time that would allow any
interested parties to meet one another. I was thinking about somewhere like
the Outback steakhouse, maybe after work this Thursday? We can swap parts
wish-lists and kick tires a bit too. If anyone is interested, let me know
either on or off list. If anyone else want's to drive up for dinner from
the lower 48... better leave now!
Thanks,

Tim in Anchorage

To tell the truth I hadn't even noticed the ads until I looked for the one
in your message! Definitely not a problem here. I do have a question- will
it help FTE if we click on a link every now and then, or is the pay the same
whether we pay attention to them or not? Just asking because I would be
willing to follow a link or two and I'm sure others would if it will help
this list to keep going.

Drew,
I recently bought the Haynes Techbook #10355 "Ford Automatic Transmission Overhaul"
book to sort of intimidate my AOD into staying intact. They always seem to know if
you're scared of 'em. Looking through the C6 section, I think that anybody with a
fair amount of savvy could get through it. And the nice part is that you've got a
bunch of folks with hands-on experience to get you through what you don't understand.

No problem at all. They aren't obtrusive enough to cause me any
discontent. If they got any bigger or more prominent then they may cause
some heart ache, but they are fine IHMO. Also, I want to go on the record
and ask if you would like any donations to help run FTE? I'd be more than
happy to pony up $20-30 if it would help. The advise I've received here
would more than made up that much in needless repairs, parts, etc.

A Ford Ttruck/Car Shop Manual is the best. Any of the Transmission books that carry the C6 is OK, but the Ford Manuals will give some technical data sometimes that the aftermarket books assume you already know. Try your local library!!!!

Good luck.

You're not in the only place ... there's only a few of us Iowans on the list
... on the other hand there are TONS of Ford trucks on the road and guys who
know them and know how to work on them ... but finding them when you need help
can be a trick as they're usually out in the field ;)

CJ, I'm guessing he means the 105 truck blocks. They have the extra main webbing
like a 428CJ block has in it to make the center mains stronger. No pics sorry,

Don't feel alone Darrell. I think I am the only FTE Guy in AZ.

I am moving to the TN, GA area from AZ, sometime next year. That's one of
the reasons I am moving out there. Along the fact that I HATE the Desert.

Maybe we should try and setup a gathering at Laughlin NV. Maybe we can
talk some of the guys from CA in driving over. Maybe we could find a nice
campsite some where around there so could sit down and enjoy our favorite
beverage and some good conversion about Ford Trucks, or whatever. This way
we could try and keep the expenses down and hopefully allow more people to
show up, This is something that Deacon and I have talked about
doing. Maybe we could take Ken into flying into Phoenix so I could pick
him and then we could drive up there together?

Just some idea's

I've got an 8' aluminum walk ramp with hook mount that can't hook to the
back of my truck because the bumper is in the way. I must have a step bumper
to use this ramp! After being told that step bumpers are no longer being
made for my 69 F250, I can't help but wonder how a mid 70's step bumper
might fit on my 69.

Does anybody know what must be done to fit a mid 70's rear bumper onto a 69
F250?

Michael-

The quick answer to ease your mind is this: Any step bumper up until 77
1/2 will bolt right on your truck without any problem whatsoever... 8-)

Some FE (360 etc.. blocks) have external ribs running from top to bottom
around the frost plug holes.
Others have stronger main bearing webs, I.E.... more ribs. these blocks were
more for heavy duty and industrial apps like the 391, but were used
everywhere.

=======================================
as i said BEFORE these blocks were what was used to replace the blown up
428s from the factory because they were stronger with extra webbing to
and were cast thick enough to with satnd the overbore of the 428s specs if
needed if they werent needed they just used them for 360s

Question,
Has anyone ever used an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold on a 460? If
so, I would like some feed back. Thanks in advance!

I have a '78 F250 and the tailgate is stuck. Operating the handle doesn't
help. I've heard that this is a chronic problem with the older Fords. How
do I fix it?

I've personally seen truck blocks with ribs externally, this is probably
what he's talking about. As for converting them to light truck use, the
usual items will have to be addressed, Front cover, crank snout, dizzy
recurve, balancing....

Mine has the extra webbing on the main bearings. My reverse 105 block looks
like a regular 352 block from the outside.
