Hi ya'll:

Been on and off (mostly on) the list for a couple years now. I'm mainly a
lurker unless I can ask dumb questions or help someone answer theirs.
I really enjoy hearing about the "personal stuff"!
The individuals that are here answering our questions are taking a personal
interest in us by doing so.

Having lived in different parts of the country I don't really have "roots",
as such.
People provide that anchor for me. People with common interests make life
even more fun!

In the years I've been on the net, I've run into great people all over the
world.
I may not always get real personal on lists but that doesn't mean that I
don't feel a real connection with folks.
(I'm hoping to actually meet some of you whenever possible, one of these
days.)

Thanks for being around this corner of cyberspace!

Mike in PA

This prefix is usually in the Penn Valley area, closer

I personally never heard of such a model and I'm too
lazy to do a 'net search right now, maybe later.

Gary -
I didn't want to put in a separate post, but hope you
get your life together Gary. My best to your family
too, for they also are having to adjust to you too.
Been through something similar, from the other side.

Since we are on this subject, I feel Gary's post was
fine, appropriate, and he include FTE content. The
responses should be kept to pmail or mushed in with
real FTE content.

of tech info and answers many questions, posts a note of a personal nature
associated with anxiety, and gets a reply like that below, just boggles my
mind.
I would hope that while we learn about Ford trucks on this list,we also
learn to have a little compassion for those people that comprise this list
and are having a rough time
Take care Gary,Thanks for the info you have provided this list and that

Barron, without any real info in
front of me I'm going to give my
thougts? on
weight of truck. First, the door
VIN plate should have the GVW
gross veh. weight) listed. Duallys
usually 10,000 lbs. Single wheels
less, maybe as low
as 8,500 lbs. Truck probably
weights near 5,000 or 5,800 itself.
It won't be
a "dump truck" if that's what you
had in mind. Doesn't take much
gravel, dirt or
load of shingles or ? to be too
much for a 1-ton. I have a 2-ton
C***y that lists
16,000 gvw and have had 18,000 at
scale even tho I couldn't take the
full
5-yard bucket full from gravel-pit
loader!!! My 2-ton wieghs 7200 with
me and
gas in it and empty. It's an old 54
vintage still hauling strong. Hope
this
rambling helps.

Subject: Front Suspension Problem - 69 2WD
Date: Sun, 12 Mar 2000 10:11:34 -0600

I have a question/topic for the list's venerable wisdom.

While redoing my 69 F-100 2WD I am examining a point of concern in the front
suspension. On the passenger's side, there is a formed steel bracket that is
carries the pivot bolt for the end of the driver's side I-beam. The top of
that bracket has two rivets holding it to the back of the main front
crossmember, and one holding it to the back of the boxed front section of
the front cross-member. Last year when replacing bushings/doing a disc-brake
conversion, I found that bracket was loose, and that one of the rear rivets
was very loose, the hole being wallowed out some, allowing it to move back
and forth pivoting on the other rear and the front rivet. I ground the rivet
head off and installed a 1/2-inch grade 8 bolt in its place. While I am have
the truck stripped down I was cleaning the front suspension today and noted
that it appears to me (judging by marks in the paint I applied last year)
that that bracket has shifted location inward about 1/16th of an inch. I
tend to doubt that it is reapeatedly flexing because surface does not look
like it has been subjected to constant wearing movement.
I am a bit concerned about securing this bracket once and for all. My
first thoughts are to disconnect the I-beam, locate it as near to where I
can determine it should be, and tack-weld it in place.
Is this a common problem in these trucks? Looking at the mount for the
other I-beam's mount, it is all attached to the boxed section of the front
cross-member which will overall provide a beefier attachment point(s). Has
anyone else had a similar problem and can they offer any advice from
experience? Right now is the time for me to do this fix if I am going to do
anything.
FWIW given this AM's experience, I would advise anyone to check out the
inside of the boxed front section of the front cross-member and make sure it
is clean and free of crud, debris, road refuse, small dead critters, etc. I
was amazed at how much packed in dirt, rocks, leaves, oil and grunge there
was in mine. I spent about 2 hours with compressed air, screwdrivers,
prybars, carb cleaner, etc. getting all the muck out of mine.

I have a big block ford 352 or 390, hope it is a 390. Pulled numbers off of the side of block; 6G21N, not raised numbers but stamped.
Would like to identify without pulling heads or oil pan. Engine pulled out of a 1967 F-250; original engine had C7 on intake 67??. Is there a way to identify engine by truck vin if numbers on block do not work. First time to use list hope I am doing it right. Matt

Matt, look on the passenger side of the block towards the front of the
engine for the raised casting numbers. Also, just below the oil filter
adapter on the block, is a three or four digit code, much like the one you
gave in your origimal post. Also, look between the middle two spark plugs on
the heads for the head casting number.
6G21N looks like a date code. 6=1966. G=July. 21=21st day of the month.
N=in plant control number. Your block was probably produced on July 21,
1966.
While casting numbers can give you an educated guess as to what engine
you have, it's still only a guess untill you pull the oil pan get to the
crank casting number, or the head to get the bore and stroke. The vin code
will tell you what the truck originally had from the factory, and if you're
positive the engine has never been swapped, should be accurate.

Dear All,

How do I find out which Transfer case I have? I've heard that the NP205
sits about 3 inches farther forward than the NP208, is that true? I'm
assuming I have the NP208 and would like to swap in the 205 so I can
clear the front cross member on my 79 Bronco (because the front drive
shaft hits the member). I'm also interested in a rebuild kit for the
NP205 because I'm planning on purchasing it used. Would anyone know
where to get one?

Thanks,
Bob

I'm looking for a good 390 or 428 crank and wanting to sell or trade a 289 shortblock and a 2T 360 crank. The 289 spins over, but I don't know what shape the crank is in. I have the heads, also. They are off the block and have been checked for cracks. The heads have been tore apart and heavily ported on the exhaust side. I have the valves and springs, but no studs. The 360 crank looks like it's in good shape, mabye a .010 clean-up cut, or mabye just a good polish. Make an offer!

Jason, thanks for the info. I found all of the numbers you spoke of. Casting numbers on passenger side of the block C6ME-A, (I have a 390 block on a stand that I compared the numbers to, it has a C6ME, without the "A"). Numbers under the oil filter adapter are CF25, and Right Bank heads C6AE-R and Left Bank 6080R. Also Vin on truck C7TE9425E. Does an "S" raised number on a 4V mean anything.
Is there a book out there that I could learn to identify Ford numbers/codes? Thanks for the help.
