That is odd, I thought most of the time the washers came with the hoses, though
thinking about it more, they might come with the caliper/wheelcylinder instead

Even working on "new" cars I've had to use the vice grips, I've actually given
up even trying anything else. If you set the vice-grips tight enough then you
will actually leave the nut in tact enough that you can use a wrench on it when
you're putting it back on (depending what side you're replacing of course) ...
this was even the case on my 96 Mustang that I only drive in the summer, as
well as the 69 that hasn't been apart for 15+ years, so it affects all ages.

I saw my first '79 F350 4x4 last week and I have been looking for that
model for a LONG time. The guy bought it from some farmer where he said it
had only 40k miles on it and he paid 5k for it
It was the explorer model. The front hubs were HUGE! forgot to check if it
had the dana 70 or dana 60 rear but it definatley had the dana 60 front!
This was a single wheel rear axle btw.

Eh, Carver, funny you mentionned you want to make your own crew-cab

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?

Hey Gerry, I'm having a small problem with that article that you read . You
stated that kit # t-295 was a 63 F100 issued in 68 with a camper shell ? I
went to smhracing . com and they say its for (kit # t-295 ) a 51 ch*#y
belair
by AMT . Whats up with that ? I haven't found kit # 8133 issued in 63 with a
go kart ? Any ideas ?

Steve 64 460 ci swb

Well, I just rechecked that article, here is some of it again:

Truck year Type kit# when done 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-cart
1963 F-100 T-295 1968 with camper shell

That's exactly what the article says in print.

This was copied from "ScaleAuto Enthusiast" magazine, #104,
August 1996. Their web-site is:
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.kalmbach.com/scaleauto/scaleauto.html
Their back-issue department:
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://db.kalmbach.com/catalog/catalogjump.lasso?Menu=BackIssues
Yep, #104 SEEMS to be available!
I HIGHLY recommend that you buy the current ScaleAuto Enthusiast
magazine, as it is FULL of adds for places that have old kits.
Hey, in that last one (#132, June 2000), they have the result of their
annual survey; Top 10 most requested REissues: 3rd place:
1961-63 FORD PICKUP
(on page 62). I'd say there a very good chance we will see it reissued
by AMT/ERTL next year.
Another very good magazine of kits, full of adds:
FineScale Modeler
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.kalmbach.com/fsm/finescale.html
I also checked http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.modelexpress.net, in their magazine SAE
section, they have the issue of ScaleAuto Enthusiast #104, at $2.81US.

HOWEVER......
Upon checking my "Small World of Wheels Model Kit Value Guide #2"
issued in 1987.....

AMT
1963 F-100 8133-200 unknown with go-cart
1963 F-100 08-133 unknown with go-cart
1963 F-100 T295(again) unknown
There is also a B/W picture of a 63(?) F-100 with camper shell:
"Ford F-100 custom camper", #2563. Same pics as SAE article.
It sure looks like THAT # is the right one!

Note here, the go-cart is a "streamliner", and the camper shell is
more like a bed-cap, top of it in line with top of cab, exept for
an "extension" that goes over the top of the cab.

I checked for the "other" kit #T-295, it is indeed a '51 BelAir!

And I thought I knew EVERYTHING about kits.......
Boy I sure love this list!!!! :)

Robert,

I'm wondering if there is just a plastic protector or something over the
threaded stud that might slip off? If not, send them back and get new ones
from the local parts store, they are still very available. I'm guessing
they'll be cheaper than those at Mac's, but I'm not sure.

All of the mounts I've seen (everywhere between about 64 and 76) have been
threaded...

Hope this helps!

Probably as many opinions as there are members.
Now to your question.. Bronze vs cast guides. I once had a set of FE heads done with brass
and for some reason I bent pushrods more often after that. The shop owner also tried to talk
me out of them, but after I insisted, he said, "Its your money". That is the only set I've ever had
bronzed, so I guess I'm saying I'd stick with the steel(cast).

I'm in digest mode also.
The motor mounts you got are the wrong ones... Take them back where you got
them and also take along your old ones and get a pair just like the ones on the 360..

Actually the mounts between the 360 and 390 that I had were different. They
functioned the same, and mounted the same, but the 360 mounts were narrower
than the 390 ones ... not sure why, there were several variables (3/4ton vs
1/2ton, 2wd vs 4wd), but they were definitely different. I used the 360 mounts
on the 390 'cause they were in better shape though and they worked fine.

OK, I feel a little foolish now. After taking a

coated with rubber. It looks like when they molded
the rubber for the mounts, the studs got coated too.
For protection, or just sloppy I don't know. Anyway,

Did you look closely at the "unthreaded nipple"? I
recently purchased
FE
mounts for my 69 F250 and each of the threads had a
plug on them to
protect
them during shipping. If there isn't one threaded stud
on each mount,
then
you may have purchased the wrong mounts.

If you have the wrong mounts, you might consider
Checker Auto Parts,...

# 2290/270-2290
# 2289/270-2289

You can expect to pay about $9 for each.

Foolish? That's nothing! Until very recently, I worked retail parts. One
night I sold a battery to a regular customer, who needed to install it in
the parking lot. I gave him the necessary tools and out he went. About 5
minutes later, he comes storming in, swearing about the %*#$(! dead battery
I sold him. Went out to look at the car and immediately found the problem.
He had neglected to remove the plastic protective cap from the negative
terminal which was acting as a rather effective insulator...

Another one: About 10 years ago, I was working my first day solo management
of a Firestone store (we were newly open on Sunday, nobody wanted the gig,
so I got elected). The first customer, a 40-something nicely dressed woman
pulls up in her Cmro. Comes in and proceeds to chew off what rear end I
got about these lousy POS cheap-$$ tires we sold her. I tell her we'll do
whatever it takes to make her satisfied and walked out to the car. Again
the problem is obvious. I point to the raised white letters which read:

"GOODYEAR EAGLE GT".

"Maam, these are Goodyears. We're Firestone (pointing to the sign on the
building). Goodyear is around the corner..."

I can think of two much more foolish people. Don't feel bad.

Yes I've seen freon leak detectors that worked that way. The flame changes
colors. Gotta be real careful burning freon though. The byproduct of freon
combustion is a nerve gas. I think phosgene.

Hi Kids,
Yesterday was the PowerWash day for the 79 Dream Truck. A shower and a
half and still I'm dirty.
Now that I can see the frame, standoff's and spring mounts I've
discovered some minor cracking that won't be a problem to weld up but there
are a few rivets that are shot in the cab mount standoff's, rear spring
mounts and a couple of the bolt holes in the front spring mounts are oval.
I've figured to take out the shot rivets and replace them with a good
quality bolt with lock washer and Locktite. For the oval holes I've figured
to weld a 1/4" or 3/8" plate over the old holes and re-drill.
I'm headed for a sandblast in the next week or so and then frame paint.
I'm figuring to use epoxy primer and a good quality oil base paint over the
primer. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

While your in there pulling off cold rivets you should consider pulling off
the front shackle receivers on the rear of the leaf spring. These are
usually big pieces of cast iron that are riveted on to the frame. Pull the
rivets out and replace them with bolts. This way when you get around to
replacing the bushings you can pull the receiver out easily.

Good luck.

Subject: 73-79 disc brakes


I read the article on swapping in the disc brakes from a 73-79 2WD truck
into the 68-72's and was wondering about donor vehicles. Can I pillage the
brake parts off of a similar year van? I have a line on a 77 and a 79 E150
vans that a guy is parting out and am wondering if these spindles etc. are
the same. Intuition tells me they most likely are, but I'd like to be sure.

Thanks

I got really lucky today, and I found some good side moldings for my 70
F-100. Price is right too. Question is, how do I get it off without trashing
it. Somebody told me there is a tool to get behind the molding and pop it
free, anybody know how to do it/where to get the tool? Can I make the tool
easily?

Thanks people

According to my Mitchell Interchange Manual, the spindles are different.
Don't know specifcally what the difference is, but they are not listed as
interchangeable. The rotors and the calipers are interchangeable however.
The booster is not. The master cylinder is, but you're going to want a
rebuilt or new one anyway.

When I first bought my '63, it had a funny clunk in the rear, which turned
out to be the same problem you are having, What I did, was drill the rivets
out, get everything apart and derusted, then drill the holes out to the
next larger size (7/16) got some 1" grade 8 Fine thread bolts and flanged
nuts, then torqued then to about a million bls/ft.

No problems so far, and I've had 3500lbs of crushed rock in it...

There is a tool but I removed my trim without one. The trim is held on with plastic clips which are bolted onto the body panels. The trim on the box and the hood is easy, because you can reach the nuts on the backside. Remove them and the trim comes right off. For the other trim, I very carefully pried an edge of the trim away from the body with a screwdriver, then used a bright light to see where the clips were. If you can see them, you can rotate them with a narrow screwdriver or a similar tool. Just be careful and take your time.

Of course buying the tool would make it easier, but a dollar saved is a dollar earned right?

Let me know if you need any more help.
