Well....Its time for the Bloomsburg 4 Wheel & Offroad Jamboree again!!! It
is July 7th, 8th, & 9th held at the Bloomsburg PA Fairgrounds (10 Minutes off
Route 80 in PA). Last year was a blast as my friend entered tough truck
with his Heep. This year I am going to bring my 1979 F-350 2wd Crewcab (not
to show...just to get there). I am going to put a "CrewCab Wanted" poster on
it, Hoping someone has a "Spare" 1973-1979 Crewcab they want to sell. My
Crewcab has a little rust the drip rails, but I really hate doing bodywork.
This year will be different as there will be no "Truck Parade" though town.
Don't know what they have planned, but it will be great just being there.
Well.....Thats About it!!! See Ya there!!! Wayne Grabley

All good advice, but if you still can't get it open, try what worked for
me. Remove the handle and the rods from the holes in its back side.( Small
cotter pins I think) Put vise grips on the hooked end of the rod. Get a
friend to do the same on the other one. Pull!

Good luck.

>Snip, snip 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.
>>Snip, snip Is the goal here to stop an exhaust leak? If it is then I can't
see pulling the heads making things easier. Pulling the heads is a lot of
work. I think It'd be easier to take a fender off to get access to the
exhaust manifold than pull the intake off an FE. OK, maybe not. An FE intake
is big and heavy and takes 2 people or a engine lift to pull off and put
back on. Some people have done it alone so it can be done, but if things go
wrong it could go way
wrong. Making access doors in the wheel wells (I know this isn't their
official name but it's what I've always called them) is what I do when I
need to. At times I think design engineers and tooling are in cahoots.
>>Who needs a special tool when you have a cutting disk. ;]Looking at the
360 in my '76 F350 I don't think I can get a socket
on the bottom row of head bolts without removing the exhaust manifold. My
manifolds use bolts. I think if I disconnect a motor mount I could use a
bottle jack to twist and lift the engine giving a little angle at the
manifold bolts.

Deacon, you changed my thinking. I hear you on easier to pull fender than
pull heads and intake. My revised strategy is to pull fender and inner pan
and see what that buys. (And pull motor mount/jack motor if necessary.) If
that fails, then we can go back to original plan and pull top end off. --
However, I still maintain the concern of soaking with penetrating oil (and
heat if necessary) UP (and under) around those manifold bolts at head bosses
with head on engine. [Please understand that I am thinking worst case in a
bolt breaking.]

> The threads are eroded away, there isn't much thread remaining.
>>My bad. I was thinking length. Just a little FYI, my 360 uses bolts

Those exhaust crossover pipe studs will have to be replaced. To your point,
bolts will go back in if at all possible.

>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?
>>Snip, snip If these angles are correct with no damage to the face or seat
then it will seal. The valve also needs to have a min. margin width. Without
this margin width the end of the valve will have an edge like a knife. Snip,
snip

Deacon, you point on width and angle is clear and also brings back memories.
Just out of high school and like many kids, I really didn't know what I
wanted to do for a career. So I went to a school that taught auto mechanics.
A lot of theory (including of course valve seat theory) and some hands on.
We pulled apart and put together (ground/lapped valves/seats), time and time
again the same flat head military surplus Jeep engines.

The custom Cab was the interior trim option- all the shiny stuff inside. On
the 61-66, that meant a trim strip running the width of the dash, a "custom
cab" switch panel bezel thing below the speedometer panel, trim around the
upper inside of the doors, and on the door panels themselves- among some
other things. I'm pretty sure door panels only came on the custom cabs, and
they had brightmetal trim which clipped to the door and held the plastic door
panel in place.

did all the trucks come with a 'collar' around the steering column with
four small gauges in it, or was that just the custom cab?

You are absolutely right- I guess I just got to thinking inside stuff and
forgot all about that exterior trim. (oh- and those cool door handle guards
on some models, too!) I do have a question, though- was the exterior side
moulding only on custom cab trucks (61-66)? Or was it possibly an option on
the others? I have seen a few (maybe 2 or 3) that had the exterior trim, but
none of the goodies inside. I guess its possible someone just added it all,
but it got me wondering. Anyone know?

Funny how the names work. Custom Cab started out as the luxury truck, then
it was moved down to the standard truck, and was replaced with Ranger XLT,
When the Ranger came out, it was shortened to XLT, but by then I believe
Lariat had become the nice version. And now the base truck is an XL. I
imagine pretty soon, most work trucks will be Eddie Bauers, and all the nice
trucks will come with my name on the script.......

Yep. The outside chrome only came on custom cab. AFAIK. I could be wrong.
It happens. :o) I have seen several trucks with the interior goodies but
no chrome on the outside. It all depends on how somebody has chosen to
restore the truck.

That doesn't sound like anything I've seen on a 61-66 truck- unless I am
misunderstanding your question. These trucks were definitely lacking in the
guage area. I'm not sure what changes were made with the 66 sweeping speedo
cluster, but up until then all you had was two idiot lights (oil,amp), a temp
guage, and a gas guage. These were all in the same assembly as the
speedometer and were crowded into a 7" round hole in the middle of the inst.
panel. Is it possible this is a custom jobby you are referring to? If not,
I sure would like to hear more about it. I learn more about these trucks
every day (and am reminded of how little I know about them).

I have (had) outside chrome trim, but I don't think I have a custom cab. The interior is pretty plain, about the only trim inside is a thin chrome piece on the seam where the black top of the dash meets the metal bottom half of the dash panel. The inside of the doors have no trim or anything, and nothing said custom cab on it.

Subject: Re: 61-66 Cheap-o door panels

well, I'm no expert myself, but here goes:

'65 custom cab. this is a metal panel that attaches to the steering
column under the steering wheel. sorta like a rally pac on a '65 mustang,
which is why I wasn't surprised to see it. well, same location as a rally
pac, but this is a sheet metal kinda half-circle. it's bolted really well
to the the column. looks factory (at least to me). four holes in it,
right now it's got a (small, aftermarket) tach, vacuum gauge, oil pressure
and I forget the last one. painted the same color as the cab (which is an
old job), and looks pretty old itself. the tach and vacuum gauge look to
be recent replacements. maybe it's a '60's aftermarket thing, or a dealer
add-on. looks too well made and sturdy to be even close to recent. looks
old, too.

I was surprised, too, because like you said, the dash is pretty spartan.
but then, maybe that's why this thing is there...

any ideas?

Actually I thought you could still get one model lower than an XL that was just
a base F150 or F250, but that could be a "fleet" order deal that doesn't come
with any designation ... or thinking back that was the body that ended in 91
that was the last one I saw with no designation on it...

The block D2AE CA is listed as a 72-74 351C 4V, Boss, 71 CJ, HO additionally
Tom Monroe's book says, "four bolt main-bearing caps." Does it have 4-bolt
mains? Here's where it gets foggy in the next sentence it says, "Special
block cast with thicker cylinder walls and siamesed bores for racing use
carries and XE192540 casting number." I do not know if this means the D2AE
CA block or that there are other blocks out there that are the same as the
D2AE except they have these other attributes. The casting date is 1973 April
17, but you probably knew that.

The 4MA is a 70-74 351C Additionally Tom Monroe says, Boss and HO hardness
tested. Brinell test mark on polished face of counterweight. You might see
if the brinell test mark is there, if so and the block has 4-bolt mains the
combination were probably factory designed for high performance.

Monroe's book goes on to say the 72 HO, a low compression version of the 71
Boss, uses a flat-top forged 9.2:1 piston. Pictures shows large valve
reliefs as you described. Are your pistons forged or cast?

The 1975 casting number on the heads is very odd, unless Ford did some
limited production.

I threw out some stuff from a book, maybe you can sort it out. Good luck.

The 67-72 F series has never been produced in 1/25 scale but if enough guys

How about tring to find a 64 in 1/25 scale ? Good luck !!!!!
