Bill,

I can't really help you with your problem, but since we both have '64's, I
thought I'd ask you a question or two. I have a '64 F-100 SWB Custom Cab.
Mine originally came with a 352 V-8 and automatic. I plan on going back
with a 390/C6 Combo., but as you know the '64 was one year away from
Twin-I-Beam. I want to get rid of that solid front axle, and I was
wondering if you have any advice to give.

Subject: Jack for '65 F100

I recently purchased a '65 shortbed flare side F100 and am looking for a
suitable jack for same. The 2 ton bottle jack I tried today at O'Reillys
wasn't long enough to do any good in the rear and the cylinder is to narrow
and flat to make me feel good about it staying put while the truck is lifted.

Does anyone have any suggestions about a securely fitting jack for this
truck - one small enough to fit under the seat?

If so, where might I find one for purchase??

Thanks in advance.

Date: Sat, 08 Apr 2000 17:31:22 PDT

Does anybody here have tried to swap the cab from a MORE than
1-ton 73-79 Ford truck onto a 1/2 ton truck? My cabs are pretty
much rusted out, and I can have access to one of those dump-truck
cab. Also, does anybody have tried to put a regular cab on a
supercab truck? Any things to watch-out for such swaps? It would be
really handy for me to have a 10-foot flatbed 4x4.

Many thanks!

I think they mean a standard exit as opposed to fenderwell exit.

Subject: 2V 360 Carb Adjustment?

My 75 Supercab 360 2V auto has developed a problem with idle speed.
After it is warmed up I can kick off the fast idle with no problem.
Sometimes though it revs back up to fast idle speed while driving
requiring that I shove it into neutral and kick it back down(sometimes
it takes kicking it down 2 or 3 times to bring it back to idle speed).
The truck has been sitting this winter while I brought it up to safety
specifications, It is now certified, plated and ready to go.
Other than this the carb and motor are functioning very well. Any
suggestions?
Thanks

I have seen a 1986 F-150 2wd as a convertible. I asked the owner about the
top, and he said that the company was out of business. The place was called
Arizona Customs. It was a hard top convertible, and used the existing metal
roof. Looks like a neat conversion. He is at the Bloomsburg 4 Wheel &
Offroad Jamboree every year that I have attended. The show is in Bloomsburg
PA on the second week of July. Try to attend cause it kicks!!! Thanks!!!

check the rod from the carb that hooks to the throttle linkage.sometimes gas
will leak around the rod & after not being run for awhile it will gum up &
make the linkage stick a little.use some carb cleaner & a small brush to
clean around that area.also check the throttle return spring to make sure it
is not wore out or catching on something.

Im not sure this will work, as the center hump isnt near high enough. Also
the mounting for the brakes is different. Also, if I remember right, the way
the inner fenders attach is also different. If you can swap the center hump,
Id say it might be possible.
