Congrats on your new truck. Glad you made it home OK, but that trick with
the license plates is absolutely illegal in Texas except with a few types of
specialized plates. That's a good way to wind up in jail with your truck
impounded. Advice to those who would emulate your deed: Check your local
laws before embarking on such an escapade.

You don't need to take them off, just loosen all the bolts on top ... I've got
some pics on my engine rebuild page (http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.public.iastate.edu/~wish/rebuild.html)
that show the front end without the radiator support in it. I left the front
clip on, but removed just the radiator support as you will be doing. There
are several bolts in the inner fenders (the head facing the back of the truck)
that might cause you some grief, other than that, they're all pretty easy to
get at ... you might want to mark where the fenders line up and such to be sure
it all ends up the way it came out ... I used chalk and was careful not to lean
on the fenders too much (they wouldn't support weight anyway) ...

Hey All,
Does any one on the lists have documentation on the rebuild of a C6
tranny???? How hard is it. Are there special tools needed. My C6 has been
ailing for a while and I am looking into having it rebuilt or rebuilding it
myself. Most of the truck and its components I have rebuilt myself. I have
never rebuilt a tranny and am looking for insight.

It takes a special puller that clamps in to the little groove on the front
of the pulley. The parts houses around here will let you borrow one for a
deposit or they will pull the pulley off for you.

Rats, forgot to put in a subject line on the last one. Here goes again:

Howdy,
Can anyone recommend a GOOD quality chrome step bumper for a "74 F-100? I would like one that approaches OEM quality so I do not have to suffer from rust bleeding under the top plate, peeling, blisters, etc. of the cheaper ones which is so common.
As long as I am asking, I might as well ask if there is an aftermarket Ford parts business which specializes in grills, bumpers, padded dash, headliner, upholstery, knobs, and other items for this year? Seems like there should be a couple out there.
Many thanks.

Not necessarily. U-joints often make a noise like tin cans rattling. It will
be louder as you pass a curb or building with the driver's window down. You
can usually look at noisy u-joints and see bright metal or rust powder all
over the offender.

There's a special puller that removes the PS pump Pulley from the shaft.
Believe it or not, It's not a threaded fit, simply a press on. Likewise,
theirs also a special tool that installs it. Check your auto parts stores. Im
told that some have them to rent, others might even have em for sale. I had
an auto mechanic friend (EX GM - He partially wised up though still drove em)
that had the set and I borrowed em from him. It's unbelievable easy with the
right tool!

Paul,

Get an Automatic Transmission Service Group (ATSG) book on the C-6. Most
parts places can order you one, you can find them by searching for ATSG on
the net. Or their phone number is 1-(305) 670-4161. Cost is some where
between $10 to $20. In my opinion these books are great, you will not have
many questions with them. Yes, there are some special tools, however, I made
most of the ones I needed, compressed air is very useful, along with a dial
indicator. You can get a rebuild kit (clutches, bands, filter, seals, and
"O"-rings) for $50 - $60 and get a rebuilt valve body (price?). Then just to
make sure there is not much left to chance you can get a new oil pump for
around $80 and torque converter for around $100 if needed. The good part is
these trannys usually work when you get through. Good Luck

Subject: Clutch/Brake Pedal bushings?? / three speed to floor.

Hey All-

I've started to notice that two of my trucks (76 F-250 4x4 and 67 F-100
2x4) when pushing on the clutch pedal initially, will draw the brake pedal
to the side and wiggle it. Basically, it's kinda scary to be able to feel
your brake pedal wobble as you use the clutch. I was curious as to
anybody having a kit that includes new bushings to fix this, or do I just
have metal sleeves, or rods that run through each other that are worn
out? Anybody tear one of these assemblies apart? I don't want to get
into it if I'm not going to be able to solve it in a matter of hours.

On a side note- I put a Hurst 3 speed column to floor shifter conversion
into the '67. Talk about a royal pain in the you-know-what!!! I highly
suggest people pull the tranny while doing this, rather than trying to do
it all in the truck. (although it is possible as a lot of swear words
proved last night). 2nd gear is a reach and a half, and I've only
screwed up thinking reverse was a creeper gear once (thank God nobody was
behind me!- blame it all on my NP435's in everything!) But it is pretty....
