already spent over $2,000 and haven't even had the block prepped yet. The
460 is being built for mild performance. Good luck and I hope that I have
been of some help.

If you do not mind I would like to know some of things you are doing to your
engine, I've spend over a year and about 4 grand on mine just doing the
things I always wanted to do. Trick Flow aluminum CJ heads 2.5" intakes,
72cc combustion chambers, TRW forged pistons with 15cc dish, removed 0.022"
from the deck height, 10.5 : 1 compression ratio, gear drive for cam,
rotating assembly balanced to less than half a gram, matching Trick Flow
intake manifold, 750 Holley, special ARP main studs and rod bolts, MSD
ignition. Should have it running in March. Would like to discuss your
reasoning for what you are doing.

Subject: Overheating Again

Hi all, Been a while since I posted. I'm in a pickle. Back in July I posted
about a truck I was working on that was overheating. Got quite a bit of
response but one stuck out and I save it and now I've lost it. It was the
simplest and best explanation i've heard yet. But I can't remember who wrote
it. If u remember writing it or who wrote it or know what I'm talking about
please post or Email me privately ASAP. It had basic reasons for overheating.
Lower radiator cool: ?, Upper radiator hose cool: ? etc. talked about what
those meant as far as blocked radiator etc. Thanx in advance.

Subject: Re: 351 Oiling Tip??

I wrote some time ago about an auxillary oiling system was very common
for the Y block series to improve oil flow to the rockers. That system
consisted of inserting a "Y" fitting in the oil pressure sending unit
hole in the block, and then running tubing to the top of the valve
covers. Then using a bolt with the hole in the center the oil was
directed down to the rocker shaft. (There's really a few more details
but I think you get the drift). The same principle should be able to be
adapted to the 351. I didn't see the original post so I can't comment
on it. If you want more details, let me know.

Subject: 73-77' OEM Grille Shell - Urgent!



Hi Everyone!
As many of the long time FTE members know, I am a NUT about OEM / NOS Ford
Replacement Parts. I feel if your going to build that perfect truck, then
the only way to go is to use Genuine Ford Parts whenever possible! Over
the years being involved in building, restoring & driving these old
machines I have helped countless people find the parts they need to
complete there projects and the Internet has opened up hundreds of new
sources for this. I always try to post whenever I can the urgent need to
purchase an item if I see the signs of it about to become obsolete. And I
have another today.

During the second week of January I ordered from my buddy at the Ford
dealership a replacement Grille Shell (the chrome surround) for my 1975
Explorer. The item came up on National Backorder with Ford and there
computer noted that production would begin as soon as they were done
running another batch of the 78/79 style Shells. Then during the first week
of February my order along with over 100 other backorders was Cancelled by
Ford and the part number converted to Obsolete! "I about died!"
Fortunately, within 5 days Ford Reinstated the part number due to so many
complaints from there dealers and agreed to run another batch which should
be available approximately March 1st according to the notes in the Ford
computer.

This is an extremely rare thing and usually only happens whenever an item
is dropped while having a large number of backorders in the system. But it
is also a sure sign that a part has seen the "end of the road!!" Usually
Ford will only produce enough to fill all there orders and obsolete the
number for good after that. The urgency here is to Place Your Order Now
ASAP!! Go to your dealership's this week or you may miss out!! Order Part
Number D6TZ-8200A. You should not have to pay for the item until it comes in.

As far as price goes, when I priced this out last December the Retail was
going for $283.23 ..... BUT, it is also VERY COMMON for Ford to increase
the selling price during the remaining stock of a part number when it is
about to go Obsolete! So don't be surprised if you find a higher price than
this. For those of you whom may have friends or family members that work at
dealerships then maybe they can get you the item and save you some bucks!!
After all, at this retail price the dealership's cost is only $170. And
once the item is obsolete and the dealership's are dried up, then the NOS
dealers will be asking 5-$600 bucks for them!!

Good Luck!!

(followed by very informative heads-up on grille shell D6TZ-8200A)

Thanks for a timely and informative heads-up. I'm tempted to go out and buy one even though the one I have is perfect...

As Mel Brooks once said: "It's GOOD to be King"! ;-)
I just wish that the listfathers on some of the other groups I read
would consider doing this. I say "Go ahead and DO it"! We'll get the idea, real soon.
Can you tell this is a "pet peeve"?

I believe it was Chris Samuel that posted the tip for M blocks which
basically consisted of putting a Y or T fitting in the oil sending unit hole
and plumbing from there to the oil gallery plug in front of the oil filter
which is normally blocked with a pipe plug. Very simple & easily
accomplished.

Im going from memory so I could be wrong (nothing new), but here goes.

A fitting was installed into one of the tapped & plugged holes in the block
near the oil filter. From here an external line was run to a Tee fitting
installed under the oil pressure sender at the rear of the block. This gave
the rear of the block another source of fresh cool oil Vs what wandered there
through the stock passages. Kinda ugly, but I spose it could work

that's what I 'member anyway!!

Subject: Frame painting/cleaning

Hello All,
I was wondering if anyone could answer my questions about redoing my
frame on my 66' SWB. I'd like to clean it up and repaint the whole
frame. Will I need to sandblast it or will high pressure from the
carwash clean off the old dirt and paint good enough to apply new
paint. Any comments/suggestions appreciated.

Bill
