on the shocks get wore out where the bolt goes thru & it will rattle. Just

the only ones that I have ever seen in that body style were the dealership
promo models. Usually can't find them for under $75. Unless you find
someone who doesn't know what they have.

AMT did produce models of the 61-63 F100's and the 73-77 F350 extended wheel base truck (as well as
150's) and the 79 4x4 based on the Firestone 'Super Stones' giveaway truck. These original kits are pretty
dear now but if we squawk loud enough, there's a chance they could be re-issued. AMT allows feedback on their site-ertltoys.com- but Revell doesn't. I posted an address for them on the 61-79 message board at the FTE site a couple of days ago.

Hello,
Just got back from checking ebay for truck kits. There's a guy on there with
kits by AMT of not only the '76 talked about earlier, but a '61, '62, & '63
as well. I thought I remembered a kit of those older styles from my
childhood. Unfortunately, those kits are very expensive! But if any of you
want one bad enough, they can be had. Just FYI.
Oh, and back in the world of real trucks, I got my 390/C6 put in my '67 this
week. Now I've got to hook up all the goodies to get it running. Fun, fun,

Friends;
I've put myself in a bit of a jam here. I put B&M's 40262 kit in my 1966
C6, correctly I think, and now have no reverse and delayed engagement into
D1. On the box it says it's for the '67-'89 C6, but the parts guy and I
agreed that it must also fit the '66 as we thought it must be the same.( It
does look a little different inside than the directions show, however.)
Can anyone rescue me from this predicament?

TIA, Eric

Yes, on my 77 F250, the tailgate supports and hinges on the right side rattled constantly. Sounded like it was under the truck while driving and took me some time to figure it out.

Wrote: How can I replace the right side interior door panel? The armrest is separating from the panel.

I just replaced my interior panels with new ones from AutoKrafters. LMC Truck offers interior panels as well. Both are online and offer catalogs. You can replace the padded armrests as well. Any color is available.

I'm not sure how the steering is currently but maybe you could use a
power steering box off a left hand drive F-150 4x4. This box mounts
to the outside on a left hand drive so it would be on the inside of a
right hand drive.

What are the common heavy duty trucks in your area? That would be
your best bet. Probably Toyotas, Unimogs, Mercedes? Just a guess.

About those inquiries about plastic Ford trucks models kits, I
collect automotive magazines AND plastic model kits magazines, among
which I have ALMOST all issues of ScaleAuto Enthusiast. In their
issue #104, August 1996, they have "Ford Pickup Chronicles" article
in which they describe all the Ford pickups models kits from
1960-1997. Glue kits and snap-fits in 1/25 1/24 scale only. Here's
a rundown of that article:

Year Type kit# issued notes
AMT
1960 F-100 1360 1960 with 2-wheels trailer
1961 F-100 K131 1961 with 2-wheels trailer
1962 F-100 K132 1962 with 2-wheels trailer
1963 F-100 8133 1963 with go-kart
1963 F-100 T-295 1968 with camper shell
1975 F-350 T-322 1975 camper special, "Star Truck"
1975 F-350 T-387 1975 camper special
1975 F-350 T-566 1975 camper special, with '40 Ford/trailer
1976 F-350 T-476 1976 camper special, new grille
1977 F-350 T-482 1977 camper special, Ranger XLT, bed cap
1977 F-350 T-412 1978 camper special, "Boonie Boss"
1977 F-350 T-413 1978 camper special, "Tuff Truck" "duallie"
that one, custom grill ONLY.
1977 F-350 4611 1981 camper special, Boonie Boss reissue
1978 F-350 2707 1979 camper special, "Firestone", 4x4,
square headlights, Ranger XLT

Now, those 1975-78/79 trucks ONLY came as the camper-special with
the longer wheelbase. Meaning that the bed's wheelwells are farther
to the back. Something to keep in mind for those of you who want to
have a stock replica of your truck. Also all had the "tool-box"
compartment on the bed. But it can be converted to a "regular" 8-foot bed; I
know: I did it. Lotsa work, I'm warning ya!
All those 75/79 came with the 460 and C6 trans. The 4x4 had the NP203.
Any more questions about those kits?

Eh, Carver, funny you mentionned you want to make your own crew-cab
out of 2 kits: I did the same for my 1978 Super-Cab 4x4; had to do it
3 times! first time, cab was too short; second time, cab was too long.
(had to happens, of course!) 3rd time, cab was perfect! but......
Upon doing the final sending prior to painting, the cab fell to the
floor and cracked! For the following hour, I was looking at it, with
a hammer nearby.... Luckily, sanity took over! I put that kit away
in a box, to be fixed later. That was 2 years ago. And last fall, I
bought that same (real) truck I was modeling! Isn't life wonderfull?

Now, for a few places where you might found those kits:

Just came back from a camping trip up near Steamboat Springs....I have a 428 in a 69 F-100 4x4, and it ran like a champ. On previous trips, I've had trouble in the higher altitude with vapor lock, but the electric fuel pump made a HUGE difference!!!!! This engine pulled us, loaded down with about 1000 lbs of dirt bikes and camping gear, over Loveland Pass (roughly 10,000ft) at 65-70mph...I couldn't believe it! The only thing is that it was getting pretty warm. My question is, what is the biggest radiator that will work in this truck? Would it be from a "Camper Special" or some other package? Also, are the radiators mounting holes the same for the 67-72 and the 73-79's????

Any input would help here....

Thanks!

Warrick,

OK, I didn't realize it was RH Drive...

Does anyone else think that the P/S box out of a 76-79 F-150 4x4 LH Drive might work? It would mount on the inside of the RH frame rail, where I'm guessing your current unit is mounted. Is this right? The only question would then be if the pitman arm will turn the correct way when you turn the wheel. I know a friend of mine was thinking of adapting one of the 150 units to his 76 F-250 4x4 and it would have worked, but the pitman actuation was opposite....that's why I'm wondering if it would work on the RHS....

Just an idea, and these should be relatively available???

The 4 core "heatbuster radiator 017322-436002" from ReadyRad is the biggest
radiator I'm aware of. You can obtain a new one from your local auto parts
store, but they're about $300 each. Both of my 69 F250's have heatbusters,
and I never worry about overheating.

As far as I know, the camper special is equipped with the largest radiator
from the factory, but finding a good one in the scrap yard would be
difficult at best.

Look at the VIN, 4th letter is the engine code. Factory 460's have a J code.

I kind of thought that out in my head, Your right about the F-150
box turning in the wrong direction on a left hand drive but it should
be correct in a right hand drive truck. Assuming that the pitman arm
travels in a front to back motion like the left had drive F250s in
the states. Getting a LH F-150 box still might be a problem. Thats
why I was thinking using more local parts if possible. I think a
picture of the right hand drive system would be worth a couple
thousand words right about now.

Subject: Biggest Radiator

My '66 Camper Spl needed a rad so I had it recored with four rows, which
fit the tanks just fine. I paid a little extra for the industrial style
core which has all the fins running horizontally. I was told that was how
the original was done. I believe all rads from around '65 to '76 are
interchangeable if you have a compatible (big hole) rad support. I paid
$400 Canadian, about $275 US.

Subject: Shift kit in '66 C6?

Well Phil, great minds think alike. This morning I scored a '67 valve body,
a new kit and flew at it. Problem solved.
(the '66 and '67 definitely are different, and according to the B&M
instructions, each is unique)
Thanks for the help!

Subject: '78 Spare parts Was (Re: Dana 44 Front Axle)

Gary (or Eric which is it?) :-)

I've got a '78 Bronco that I'm also in the process of "restoring". What
kinda parts do you have that you'd like to get rid of? Do you have
anything for the interior or maybe some of the wheel-well liners? How
about one of the factory roof-mounted running light lenses? Maybe an
interior cab light fixture and lens? Just a few thoughts for little
things I need. I've also got plenty of spare parts just not the right
ones? :-0
Is there anything you need? Maybe we could setup a swap of some sort?

Later,

Subject: brake lines
Date: Sun, 9 Jul 2000 22:46:39 -0400

Just thought I'd ask the list if anyone had a pair of rubber brake hoses.
The ones that go from the solid tubes on the axel to the brake cylinder. Or
even a set of steal braids would be nice. I have a 79 Bronco, but I'm sure
a bunch of them are interchangeable.

If anyone has a place that I could find these cheap, I'd be much obliged.
(I just think it's a little ludicrous to pay $26 a piece for these little
hoses)

Thanks,

bob
