Has someone run through a procedure for finding and fixing problems with
the fuel gauges on 73-79 trucks? neither tank on my '74 camper special
registers on the gauge. I'm not really sure as to how the gauge is
supposed to work. If I knew, that might make trouble shooting the
problem easier. Any info is appreciated.

OK, I started this thread a few months ago and it seemed to go on for awhile.
Does anyone remember where we ended up?

I'm finally getting down to the installation of a Carter pump, and I have the

Who had the last word on this? I just need a little guidance from you

Thanks!

Don,
I published a list of steering parts a while back; but it only goes up to
1969. It may be similar to 72 and its on Excel if you would like it. The
gear and pump can be purchased at Auto Zone. The brackets would have to be
found at a bone yard or maybe someone on the list could help. The hoses
also can be bought at Auto zone. The steering rod down the middle of the
steering column may need to be cut 11/16" shorter. I'm not sure for 72-
my 66 had to be cut. Also, you will probably need a Pitman Arm. I have an
extra one that came of a camper special. Good luck.

HI SCOTT
YES i have a 302 in a 79 f100 with a 3spd overdrive in it when i had the
3:00 to 1 gears in it even with the factory tires it was SICK taking off and
driving down the road if you ran over a ant you had to downshift it with a
headwind at all empty you drove in 3rd gear [direct]
THEN i stuck a set of 4:56s in it with 33 x 12.50 tires NOW it takes off
very well but seems to rev just a little high at 60mph so i would think if
you stayed with a set of 3 :70 gears and just changed the engine you should
be fine for takeoff and highway speeds as well ESPECIALLY if you have a
little bit taller tire than facctory equiped with it

Hello Guy's:

I'm a new proud owner of a '77 F250 Custom 4x4 with a 351M/400 and new to
the 61-79 list group. The truck is handed down to me by my father with 58K
original miles and he bought it new in '77. It run's great. It's been an
"extra" for 23 years and needs only minor fixes here and there.(I hope) If
you can believe this last week I replaced the original set of tires and fan
belts. My goal is complete restoration.(guess the wife doesn't get to go
shopping)

My problem is the only item that works on the dash cluster is the
Speedometer. The turn signals work at random and no ammeter or fuel gauge.
Easy fix or dash overhaul??

I'm a novice auto person and any insight into this fix is appreciated.
Thought I'd ask some trusted Ford freinds before I took it apart.

Much Appreciated, Chris.....

Chris, welcome to the group.
Chris and Howard. The gas guage circuit is battery to instrument voltage
regulator to guage to sending unit to ground. Answer the following:
1: Excluding the ammeter, do the other guages work?
If the oil pressure and temp guage don't work then suspect the IVR.
If they do work then check the gas guage circuit.
2: Does the guage work?
The next easiest thing to do is pull the instrument cluster (sounds
bad but it's not, speedo cable is worst part)
Using a D cell battery put some current through the guage. If it
deflects it's ok.
Check the connections of the guage to the foil on the back of the
cluster
Check that voltage is reaching the guage. I can't give a voltage
spec cause there isn't one. The IVR produces an intermittent voltage to
prevent burning out the guages so you are looking for an on/off cycling of
the voltage.

3: Is the circuit to the sending unit ok.
Since you have the cluster out already use an ohm meter to check the
resistance of the sending unit to ground.
Connect one side of the meter to ground and the other to the wire
that goes to the sending unit.
You should see resistance between 0 (empty) and 75 ohms(full).
If you have dual tanks don't forget about the tank selector switch.
You may have to eliminate the switch to check the sender.
4: Is the resistance ok?
If yes you probably haven't gotten this far.
If no then you have to pull the tank and measure the sender
directly. (before you were checking the wires)

Chris, Don't worry about your ammeter. It doesn't work 'cause there's a
design flaw in its circuit. I like to say you have a brand new unused
meter. The good news is that you can get it to work. There is a circuit
under the hood that you will have to modify to get the meter to work. Let
me know if you want more info.

Subject: new member and questions

Hello, my name is Curtis Palmer. I am new to this list and am pretty new
around Ford trucks. Now the question. I have a 76 F150 Super Cab 2X4 that
recently had a u-joint sieze up causing a whole mess of damage to the rest
of the drivetrain. As it siezed up it messed up the pinion bearing, seal
and the bushing and seal in the trans tailshaft housing. I can't get the
vibrations to go away between 40-50 mph.

To try to remedy this I have replaced all the u-joints (2 piece
driveshaft), pinion bearing and seal, the big bearing where the 2 shafts
come together, bushing and seal in the trans. Also, had the tires
re-balanced and rotated. Today, I had the drive shafts balanced and the
problem is still there. I even tried rotating the shafts 90 degrees but
that made it worse.

I did what my manual says about using a tach to see if it is an rpm related
problem. In 3rd/drive it will be the worst around 2100 rpm, but in second
at the same rpm it does not do it. The book notes that it is definately a
drive shaft problem if this occurs. This seems to be a speed related problem.

If anybody has any insight as to what the problem might be, please e-mail
me ASAP. Thanks.

The F/R spec was a package introduced in 69, along with Heavy duty and Construction specials, I believe. It came with wooden panels to extend the side height of the box and obviously whatever other options the new owner saw fit to throw on. The only one I've ever seen was in Edmonton about twelve years ago and the owner obviously didn't think it was such a big deal as he accepted my five dollar offer for both nameplates.

Hello Everyone,

I just received this response concerning the "Hot Rockers" thread that ran
recently:

I', sorry to tell you that Hotrocker is not going to be made for the big
Block (460) within a short period of time if it is made at all.
Here is a list of other applications for the hotrocker

The Hotrocker will be available for these engines in 4-6 weeks:

AMC V-8 290/304/343/360/390/401
Chevy small block V-8
Chevy 90 V-6
Chevy 60 V-6 (Inline valves)
Dodge Magnum V-6/V-8/V-10
Ford V-8 Windsor
Oldsmobile V-8
Pontiac V-8
Viper V-10

The Hotrocker will be available for these engines in about three months:

Buick V-6/V-8 (Factory shaft system)
Late Model Buick 3800 V-6
Cadillac V-8
Ford FE V-8
Jeep four and six cylinder
MoPar V-6/V-8 (non-magnum)

The Hotrocker system bolts on in place of your existing rocker arm system.
If you have press-in studs, you will have to prepare the heads as you would
for screw-in studs. The expected price is $795 for a V-8 engine. We expect
to be taking orders in 3 weeks.
Check for additional pictures and information.

Just thought I'd pass it along.

What about the center/side bearings in the differential?
The chunk (gearing) drops out as one piece and the bearings
are very easy to replace. Also, have you inspected the
differential chunk itself? If its a 9 inch (likely), you
can get another at a salvage yard pretty cheap. Heck, if
you're in Atlanta, I've got a 3.25 gear set for $35. I
doubt the gears are trashed as the 9 in is legendary for
its strength but its always a possibility.

Hey Man!

I have seen 300 flywheels with both cast and non-cast counterweights in
them on one end, but even with or without those, it still be a balanced
wheel.. As far as how it bolts to the crank- the bolt pattern on the
flywheel to the crank will only allow you to bolt the flywheel on in one
position. As far as a dimple in the end of the crank- I have no idea-
haven't seen this. My only suggestion to you is while you have your
engine out, make sure you have a good pilot bearing in the end of the crank
for the tranny input shaft- I would have never believed it, but it seems
ford OPTIONALLY used those in 300's for a while!!

Hi all,
I am looking at a 1977 Ford F100 Ranger 2 wheel drive PU. The cab and
box are in very nice shape rust wise, as is also the fenders. I also am
looking at a 1975 F100 Ranger 4x4 that is very rusty. I can pick up the 2
wheel drive for around $650.00 and the 4 wheel drive for around $350.00.
I know this sounds foolish and a lot of extra work but I would prefer a 4
wheel drive with the automatic instead of a 2 wheel drive with a 4 speed. I
am interested in finding out if the box and cab from the 77 would fit on the
75 4x4. The motor in the 4x4 is also very weak, but the motor in the 2 wheel
drive is a good running 351.
Please give me any feedback on this situation.

Thanks,
Tom
