Hey All-

Can somebody give me the gear ratios for the 3 speed light duty trannies
that ford used in 67, (3 on the tree) and the gear ratios for the 4speed
with overdrive that was used from 78-84 in their trucks? (mexican toploaders)

Or does anybody have a 4speed with OD they would like to get rid of? Got
me a new toy to play with.. 8-)

Joe,
The disc brake spindles will not work with the drum brake knuckles. If I'm
not mistaken, the 68 has a closed knuckle front end. It may be possible (if
the closed and open knuckle drum front ends share the 6 bolt spindle mounting
pattern) to use 71-76 Chevy 1/2t 4x4 spindles and caliper mounts along with
the Ford hubs and rotors. If you would like some information on this, email
me and I can send you a couple of write ups on how to do it.

Subject: 3/4 tube from canister

I recently bought the 3/4 diameter aluminum type tube from a local Napa
store here in North Carolina. Put it on my 76 F100. The Advance Auto
store did not have it. It attaches between the canister and the air
cleaner, and is an emissions item . The new tube was all aluminum color, no
wrapping of any type. I hose clamped it to the canister, just slide the
other end onto the air cleaner.

I may still have the part number / box if anyone needs it.

Well, I've tried to keep up at home but can't keep up so will have to unsubscr*be from both truck lists for a while. When the medication (optimistic view point) begins working as expected I will be back :-) Right now I just can't concentrate on the posts so that I enjoy them but this is just a temporary set back I'm sure. Any posts to me during the last two weeks will probably not be answered unless I get ambitious and send some personal replies.......I will try to do that as I get the energy.

I'll stay on the PF, AFTE and CORE lists. See Y'all later...........(don't respond, I will be unsubscr*bed and won't see them)

Subject: E-Brake Broke..

Guys,

Now, this may not be Stock-Man approved, but.........

I have Dana 60 out of an about 72, and I used a pair of the parking brake
cables from a 1980 F-250. Dave R. has an 80 and suggested this. Now, the 80's
come with two length cables I think for the rear, (different length for each
side since the PB unit is mounted on the outside of frame). I think what I
did was order two of the shorter ones from Ford. These cables are awesome,
they are more like motorcycle cables with the plastic housing. Ford still
carries them.......

I seem to remember some slight modification to get them to fit with the lever
in the brake drum activator, but no big deal.

Another option is to look in Hemmings, I think there are guys there that can
build custom ones....might have to send them your old one....

Hope this helps!

CJ

Subject: Joes Spindle Question

Joe,

You're talking 1/2 ton, right?

I'm pretty sure the answer to your question is no.

The disc brake spindles have a five hole pattern and your 68 has a six hole
pattern. You would have to swap the knuckles in order for this to work.

But, I"m not even sure you can do that since the pivots from the 68 are
different than the 74-up...these are the same pivots that I went through
about 15 sets of in my thrasher days....the 250lb winch front bumper didn't
help, either.

You might want to think about updating that whole front end...

CJ

WEll it will take me a month or two to get rid of some extra vehicles, and build a shed to get stuff out of my garage.

I'm lookingfor a truck that needs some work, i want to rebuild the motor etc, and then it will be cheaper too

Thanks,It seems to me if I rounded up a FE C-6,and a tail shaft off of a
truck like yours,I could put a automatic in my 76 Hi-Boy some time.

Subject: Steering Gear Grease?
Date: Sat, 25 Mar 2000 14:13:12 -0600

Does anyone know where to find the fill plug and how to check the grease
(and what kind of grease it takes) in the worm and roller type steering box?
It's a '65 F250 4X4 with the original box that's still tight, but I've got
headers and one of the tubes is all over it. I'm concerned that the grease
will cook away. Those boxes are expensive to rebuild from what I've seen.

The shop manual is really vague on the procedure, and there's no diagram of
where to find the plug.

I put a set of Monroe Gas Magnum shocks on it and jacked up the body/frame
to spread the springs and sprayed some silicone lube between the leaves. It
made a big difference, (it is really much better) but I still have more
bounce in the back than I'd like. I'd bet 300 lbs in the back would likely
smooth it out some. Anyone have any ideas on how to smooth the back end
out?

Thanks.

Does anyone know if the bellhousing and clutch fork and whatnot from the 3.8
v-6 in the f-100's and f-150's from the early 80's will bolt up to the 302
pattern? I know the flywheels are different, the cluches are the same, and
the linkage looks the same.

Subject: Automatics, I say phooey on em!

Well I finally made up my mind. As soon as I have an empty bay, Tweety gets
the NP435 I have sittin in my shop. I look under the truck, and bingo, found
what I believe to be the knockin noise in my truck. Ever hear of a knockin
torque converter? I think mine is, cuz now its drizzlin ATF out the bell
housing. This is why I hate automatics, they are just more failure prone.
And this is tranny #2. Am I hard on the truck, yes. But is this outta hand,
I think so. A standard, especially a NP will run untill the gears have split
into more than 4 pieces. Sneeze and your automatic fails. I just gotta
round up the right bell housing, and It should go real clean. Got the
pedals, the 390 flywheel, the longer drive shaft, and a non auto steering
column. Gonna make it look nice and stock. Not to mention I like bein in
control of the shifts. I wish I could get a clark, but hey, That can come a
lil later. Any advice you can give, Id love to here it.

Dont waant to start a war or anything, but Auto's aint all that bad. Yea,
it's fun to control teh shifting, and yea, manuals are simpler than auto's.
But, given the clutch in manuals need replaceing every 80-100k (abouts) and
the auto's ive had go 180k w/o a problem or fluid change (now my taurus is
another story - just dumped 2.4k into a tranny job in it, ouch!).

Seriously, a C6 is one tough and reliable tranny. I'd love to have a stick,
but for an everyday driver, Ill take an auto.
