Forwarded for thought -- Late, but nevertheless very relevent to our Independence...

>>AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson Jr, noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later he died from exhaustion and a broken heart.

Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates.

Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution. These were not wild-eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more. Standing tall, straight, and unwavering, they pledged: "For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."

They gave you and me a free and independent America. The history books never told you a lot about what happened in the Revolutionary War. We didn't fight just the British. We were British subjects at that time and we fought our own government. Some of us take these liberties so much for granted, but we shouldn't.

So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid.

Remember: freedom is never free!

I hope you will show your support by please sending this to as many people as you can. It's time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball games.

Yes - even if it isn't from a Ford. The innards are still usable.. Do you have a use for it?? I'd be in the market for one that will bolt into the early '77 and down if it has a 3.73:1 or lower numerically gear...

I bought a Dana 60 years ago with 4.56 gears and a locking differential for
$20. I found it at a scrap iron yard. The guy said he'd get about $15 for it
if he scrapped it, so I gave him a $20. I think I got really lucky.

From: "Bill Templeton"
>> The left manifold gasket is blown on my 352. I suspect this exhaust
manifold has never been off before. And some of the bolt heads seem to be
slightly rounded.
>If the manifold's never been removed, how did the bolt heads get slightly
rounded? Have you been trying to stop the exhaust leak by tightening the
bolts and rounded them? If not I would suspect they've been off.
I haven't attempted to turn bolts, only an observation by inspection. I can
only suspect the previous owner made a try at removing the manifold. The
right exhaust manifold had been removed by previous owner and two of the
upper studs were drilled out and replaced with bolts. It is interesting in
the job was done through the fender inner pan. Someone had cut the inner pan
and replaced the cut-out with a neat cover. -- This is still an option in
replacing the left exhaust manifold gasket. However, even with an access
hole through the inner pan it is still almost impossible to get at the
threaded end of bolts to soak or heat.

>>Out of concern that manifold bolts will be difficult to remove (and
possibly break)I am planning to pull the intake manifold and remove the left
head with exhaust manifold attached.

>Wait-up Homie! I wouldn't do that if I broke a bolt in the exhaust
manifold. First off your tripling (if not more) your cost. You will need to
get a head gasket set (I'm replacing a head on a friends Camaro as we speak
and the head gasket set was $65) when all you need is the exhaust gasket.
Next would be the stupidity of doing it this way. Your worried a
bolt will brake off in the head so you going to risk braking a head bolt in
the block? Your not thinking about how much unnecessary work this would be
or all that could go wrong messing with sheet that needn't be at risk. It
would be cheaper and faster to take it to a shop and let them do it.
Point is well taken and I agree except for where the manifold bolt bosses on
the head are located (with engine in truck) it is just about impossible to
get a penetrating oil or heat.

>> and also exhaust pipe (actually crossover) studs have minimal threads
remaining (need replacing),
>The threads there now is all there ever was because they don't get shorter
with age. There's no reason to mess with them if that's all your worried
about.
The threads are eroded away, there isn't much thread remaining.

> Several notes: 1). If I remove the left head, I will probably go ahead and
> remove both heads and lap valves (compression is 120 lbs across all
cylinders)
>Us old guys lapped valves because in the good ol' dazes before PCV and oil
was just oil, carbon and crap built up on the valves and in the ports that
needed to be removed. Now daze lapping will do more damage to your valves
than anything else. By removing metal the valve edge gets thinner. That
makes the valve get hotter and burn. Only a valve grind improves efficiency.
IF those heads come off it would be prudent to have a look at the valves and
seats. I hear you on the "old guys lapped valves" (I am one). Doesn't a
valve grind remove more material than a lap?

>>2). There is oil leakage from areas of intake manifold/heads.
>Clogged PCV can cuze this by pressure building up in the block or bolts may
have gotten loose. Still not a good reason to tear down the engine. If you
can't stop the oil leakage with RTV and checking that the bolts are torqued,
wash down the engine when you clean the truck and check the oil.
PVC valve has been replaced, oil leak in front is around intake manifold,
and while I have not been able to determine leak in rear I suspect it is
also intake manifold. I have sealed the front oil leak with RTV and it only
seemed to be effective so long.

>> Hopefully, replacing the intake manifold and head gaskets will take care
of this leak.
>With everything all nice and sealed you'll have higher oil & coolant
pressure those old seals will start leaking then one of those old rusty
freeze plugs; that you should have replaced when the engine was all apart;
will give-way. may as well add them to the list too.

>>3). I have not been able to match up the threads on the exhaust pipe
(actually crossover) studs, does anyone know what the thread size is?
>That's cuz of the years of corrosion on them, not that it's uncommon. Are
you missing a nut?
I have measured the nuts. While I don't remember the pitch, it seems the
stud diameter was 7/16". Several auto parts stores were never able to match
up brass or steel nuts or studs based on existing nuts. As indicated above,
the studs being eroded are hard to get a measurement off of.

>>Also, I plan to use a 36" belt sander to surface the exhaust manifold as
needed.
>Do you always go for the over kill? You need to chill a little
Exhaust pipe flat flange is slightly pitted and could stand facing. It could
very well be the manifold's head face is also eroded is the area of gasket
leak. If could very well be that the manifold will need to be replaced.

I'm sure it could be done, but I'm not sure whether the wheel wells will properly line up with the wheels. Your question, however, begs another question: Why would you want to do this? Usually the short box is more collectible and hence, all things otherwise being equal, worth more.

Not if you want the wheels to line up ... the short bed has like a 120" wheelbase
while the long bed is a 133" or so ... you'd have to swap frames and such to
get it to work right ...

As Wish noted, the wheel wells won't line up properly, and I doubt the
crossbraces and mounting holes would either. I have seen an eight foot box
shortened to a six foot box, but it looked like a lot of work.

Yes- you are probably right, but I think the popularity of different styles
varies somewhat from region to region. I know people form the north-central
and midwest areas who would never think of owning one of those chopped-off,
squatty little SWB's, but here in Arkansas they seem to be most popular. Oh
well- back to the issue...

I did some measuring comparing the SWB and LWB boxes some time ago while
pondering the thought of stealing some patch panels from one to use on the
other. My memory is shady (a chronic problem)- but as I recall, the
wheelwells were the same distance from the rear of the bed on both the SWB
and LWB, but of course, the LWB wheel well was further from the front of the
bed. This might be wrong, so pardon my fading memory if it is.- but anyway,
that would mean that a LWB bed would have to be cut off from the front to
make it fit on a SWB frame- which I'm sure would be quite a job, as someone
else has said.

Hey, SCH8489- where are you located and might you be interested in a 65 LWB
frame? Would that solve the problem??

OK now!! I've been out in my shed rumaging thru something I'm not the least bit familiar with and need your help ID'ing some "stuff". I know it is small block and when I got it I was told it was 351C, but the heads are '75 and I thought that was after the demise of the C. None of this "stuff" is in my FORD Hi Performance book..

Heads - D5AE A2A

Intake - D0AE 9425 L

Block - D2AE CA Date cast in 3D17

Crankahaft - 4MA Standard and looks good..Haven't yet mic'ed it, but looks AOK.

Rods have D0AE A on them

Pistons have 351C cast in them near the wristpin. They look like really low compression and have what I'd call a half valve relief on opposite edges of the outer circumference..

I want to do it 'cause I found a ratty '65 in need of a bed (and a ton of

Azie:

The Fomoco Obsolete Tech Forum is a great place to post questions on decoding
casting ID's for car motors. The site is intended to cover 60-73 Ford
vehicles, but I think your amalgum of parts probably qualifies. Here is the
website's address:

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.fomoco.com

It may also be possible for you to learn what car model the motor was pulled
from if you also post the die stamped nos. which represents a partial VIN
sequence and should be found on the block at the rear above bell mounting
flange and behind where the intake bolts. Look for a flat machined surface.
I hope this helps.

John's F-Fun Hundreds -- 800-563-3151

I found door panels in each of these catalogs. Dennis Carpenter was the
cheapest at 120$ for the pair.

Steve, you may have already tried this but in the event you haven't, here's
my experience. The tailgate on my truck was stuck when I 1st got the truck.
I took the handle off, couldn't detect anything wrong with it so I lubed up
the hinges hoping that would help. Initially the lube job didn't make a
difference and I sort-of gave up on it for the time being. A couple weeks
later, a guy unloading a truck next to me at the landfill came over and
started helping me. Not knowing the tailgate wasn't suppose to open, he
opened it right up. It has worked great ever since. Good luck, Roberta with
a 1965 F-100.

Don't have that # in my book. Closest I have is D5AE AA which are 75-80 351M
heads

72-74 351C Boss, '71 CJ, HO, '72-74 4V 4 bolt main supposedly with thicker
wall castings and siamesed bores. Looks like a good block...

70-74 351C

Well Hello Folks,

Thought Id share my 4th of July Celebration with all of you. We decided we'd
head to the dunes to light our fireworks off, so we loaded up the trucks and
headed out. I had Tweety my 74 F-350 2wd, Dad had his 75 F-250 4x4 which was
on its maiden voyage since I repaired the front end, My bro brought his 2000
Ranger 4x4, and his buddy brought out a 70's Dodge club cab 3/4ton 4x4. We
also brought a pair of Quads, to keep life fun. Well Tweety didn't fair to
well out there this trip. I managed to get it stuck once, which also
resulted in me tearing out my driver side motor mount. ( the 4speed really
lets that motor try and pull) Didn't tear anything else up, so thats cool.
Anyhow, on one hill climb, my truck started flooding, which resulted in a 5
foot fireball exploding from under my truck. ( Mental note, I've been
driving without any exhaust pipes for far too long, GET IT FIXED! ) I got
voted as the best fireworks exhibition for that one. From there on out,
Tweety was reduced to guarding camp from any bowtie's from trying to horn in
on our fun. Dad was doin good till he snapped the forward yoke on the front
driveshaft. This made me feel good, as it told me the axle I modified to fit
was not the weak point. Promptly after this, Josh succeeded in burying his
ranger on a Razorback. Neat thing bout small truck, a 4wheeler, a few riders
to help with traction, and a tow strap yanked that truck right out. Not
learning his lesson, he immediately formed a grudge against the dune, and hit
it at about 50, made it up, but also tore up his skidplate pretty bad. He
then went over to a rocky section and promptly removed the air dam and one of
the foglights. His wife was NOT happy last night. Well with most the trucks
out of commission, we moved on to a huge bonfire, lots of fireworks, a few
cold ones, and some good music. God bless America, because where else can
you do all this? Its nights like that that help us appreciate our Freedom.

Darrell and Tweety
