The Ribbed blocks he is referring to are not the Reversed 105 cast blocks.. Rather they are the 352 cast blocks of later issue.. My '76 F150 4X4 had one of these, but I was not aware of the thicker walls around the bore. No modifications would be needed to the snout, dist., front cover and all are standard FE and not FT.

As an owner of a pair of 69 F250's, I'm sure getting tired of sales
clerks at auto parts stores telling me "sorry sir, that part is
unavailable". The local scrap yards have been picked pretty clean in the old
ford truck dept, and parts are scarce. How available would you consider new
and used parts for the 73-78 F250/350 4x4 to be? Do owners of 73-78 F series
trucks here "sorry sir, that's unavailable"?

Is the rod that unlatches the tailgate still attached to the handle ? Look
up under the left end of the handle & see if you can see it.Usually a clip
of some sort that holds that rod to the handle.Sometimes they break off.if
you can see the end of the rod,reach in there with some needle nose pliers
or something & grab a hold of it & pull.I had this problem on my ' 82--don't
know if this will be the same or not.I went to the ford dealer & got 2 new
clips(1 spare) & put it on & presto !! Got the tailgate open & oiled the
heck out of the latches on both sides.Worked ever since.

I realy like the original small, round mirrors that came on the trucks , as
opposed to the larger west-coast style which were also available, but if
you're looking for something more modern, I recently saw a 65 with the
swing-away type mirrors that were available on the early 90's trucks (and I
think maybe a few years later?) Don't know if this is as modern as you're
looking for, but they looked real nice. I don't know how dificult it would
be to mount them. I would guess it would be fairly simple since they are
attatched by only three or four torx screws to the side of the door, just
below the wing window. I guess you might use some of those thread insert for
sheet metal lke the ones in the eastwood catalog. One advantage of these
over the older mirrors is thet the newer ones are slightly convexed to allow
for a wider field of view.

Hi Garrett,

The main problem to a sun roof in your '66
is the main brace that run from side to side right down the

Well if your talking the basics, like alternators and such, your fine. Start
getting into rotors, axles, and the sort of thing, it starts gettin hard.
Took me 3 months to find a front axle for dads F-250, and even then it was
not an exact replacement, it was a close match, with a lil bit of Duggan
ingenuity.

Hi Daniel,

I am working on a '66 4x4 for a pulling truck.
The truck seems to have the original rear bumper,
according to the pictures in the factory literature.

I need to find a bumper that allows the tailgate to open.

If I can find that type bumper , I'll have a bumper for sale ...
not sure what shipping would cost.

Many reasons, Just ask Ken and Peggy. They got an ear full when I visited
them. In a Nutshell, too hot, too brown, and no weather, I.E. too much
sun. I like the rain, snow and green. I spent the first 30 years of my
life in Nebraska. I can go and lease one of the new "disposable" Rangers
to drive through the salt in the winter time. (putting flame suit on now.)

O.K. now we need to hear from some of the other people in the SW that would
like to attend.

Lets hear from ya.

I should have said , I need a bumper that will allow the tailgate to go
straight down , without hitting the bumper . My 1966 4x2 had one and
dads
'78 4x4 had one , also. I hate setting heavy stuff on my tailgate
around the farm.

Subject: Re: How can I tell what year my 390 is?

That's true. Look behind the starter for a casting number. That may narrow
things down as far as the approximate year. Starting sometime in late 68
ford began stamping partial VIN #s on the blocks of some car lines. I
haven't seen it on any truck engines so far, but I am still looking. To
check for this, look for a flat machined area on the rear of teh engine just
above the bellhousing mount and directly behind the intake. BTW--How do you
know the engine is a 390....wait let me guess: the prior owner told you so.
If that is the case, better investigate further. It's amazing how many
352's/360's somehow magically transform themselves into 390's and 428's.

Subject: Which FE heads are better

Hi All

I have two sets of FE heads and wanted to know if there is much
difference between them and which set would be better to keep. The
first set are a set of D2TEAA and the second set are C8AEH. I only
want to keep one set, which one should it be?

Also if anyone in the Northern California area needs a set of leaf
spring for an early 60's 4x4 I have a set. They are the bronze/or is
that brass bushings, 9 leafs, really heavy and would give about 3" of
lift. They are a really stiff spring. They would cost a mint to
ship but if someone want to come pick them up they are free.

you can look up Willits, CA 95490 at MapsOnUs or what ever to get the
exact location.

If anyone here has a '67-'72 shortbed could you please do me a favor. I need
to know the distance from the rear of the rear wheel opening to the end of
the bed and from the front of the rear wheel opening to the front of the

Pull #1 plug, dowel in the hole at TDC, mark the dowel, roll the
engine to BDC, dowel in the hole again and marked, measure
between the two marks, 3.5" = 352ci or 360 ci, 3.78 = 390ci.

Just as an asides; 360 has all the power of a 352, with the economy
of a 390....

Okay, I stand corrected.

But, the block I saw was for a 391 T engine, as all the parts from the cracked
block fit into it. Including the dizzy...

So maybe we're both right?

If I remember right, they are both the same other than the casting number.
I have both sets as well. I rebuilt the C8AE-H just because the exhaust
bolts came out easier. According to Steve Christ, they both have the same
sized chambers as well. There's really no difference.

Now the reversed 105 blocks were offered after '73 as standard FE blocks. I
have one of those. I really thought that for a true 391 block, you had to
modify those items Azie spoke of. Check that reverse 105 block for a D3TE
casting on it. I could be wrong.....
