It is definitely solid axle. If you can see a u joint between 2 ball joints
near the back of the wheel in the axle tube...... you have an "open knuckle"
ball joint system. If you cannot see the u joint and the area behind the wheel
is surrounded by a "lump" of cast iron with a big seal it is "closed knuckle"
and does not use ball joints. this system uses hardened pins and taper roller
bearings. It is not likely that you would have a closed knuckle system in a 78
truck unless some person replaced the front end with a much older one (74 or
earlier).

They both handle well at hiway speeds in 2 wheel drive you shouldn't be running
it in 4 wheel unless your truck is full time 4x4

Subject: Yolk needed

well it finaly happened.. truck tug of war last week I had catastrophic
failure of the forward U-joint of the intermediate shaft. I have another
driveshaft but I am having difficulty finding the fixed yolk on the back
of the C6 trans. Does anyone have a fixed yolk for a C6 trans laying
around? (I think they were the same for all auto equipped F250 Highboys
from the late 60's to 77) Does anyone know where I can get one? Ive
tried several drivetrain suppliers and they say its a pretty weird and
rare part. I guess if worse comes to worse I can use a shortened slip
yolk driveshaft from a 2wd truck and tear the tranny down to put the
slip yolk compatable output shaft but I would much prefer to keep the
stronger fixed yold configuraion. Thanks in advanced.

Laters, Danny Ling

Subject: Score!!!! New toy ends up being WAY too nice to part out!

I have been off list for a few weeks now, trying to get my life back up to
normal running temp so to say, it has just been another one of my common
catastrophies. To get to the point, some recent happenings have caused the
need to sell this truck most of you heard about along with some of my other
toys. If you have any questions about the truck feel free to e-mail me at
this new temporary e-mail account. I thought I'd post this to the list
because some of you seemed to take interest in it and some of you would be
able to really appreciate it. It is posted on the yahoo auctions at
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://page.auctions.yahoo.com/auction/23743492 if anyone is interested. I
may arrange off auction sales too as I am in a hurry to get this over with
before I figure out a way around selling it.

Just was in Prince-Edward-Island (Canada) a few days ago, and there, I
saw for sale, a F-150 with tandem rear axles, AND BOTH WERE DRIVEN!
Obviously, this was a homemade conversion, but It appeared to be very well
done! But I found the rear suspension design, well,
"kinda dull", as there was a pair of leaf springs for each axles, not
interconnected. Yes, a 4x6! And with factory hubcaps! NICE!!!
Yep, the factory box was also stretched ackordingly! Very nice
looking! Stretched frame too. Brand new (?) red paint job. It is for sale,
too. But unfortunately, I was in a kinda hurry; didn't saw the owner, but
noted his phone number.
Yep, the back axles were both 9-inch, All drum-brakes in the back. The
middle 9-inch had a kinda homemade extension on the back of it's axle
housing, about 5-inches, and then, a flat plate, from with the output shaft
for the rearmost back axle came out. There is a
"axle disengage" button in the cab, but upon looking underneat the rear, I
could see no way, as far as "I" can tell, to disengage the rearmost
back-axle.
I sould be back in Prince-Edward-Island in a few days, and I'm
gonna try to speak with the ownwer, but in the meantime, if anybody
wants his phone number, just E-mail me off the list.

Subject: '66 f100 hood

Hello list
I've been lurking awhile, but now I have a question. I got a 66 f100 custom
cab from original owner for $300.00. Put gas in it and a water pump and
started it right up. Purrs like a kitten as he said. Hadn't been started in
10 years. It's the 352-3 speed on column. Really nice condition. The
problem is the hood. The roof of his building collapsed causing major
damage to the hood. Could someone tell me what years will fit. I found a
perfect 64 hood in a yard here, but the guy said It's not his.???? I find
that different parts of junk/salvage yards here in New Jersey are owned by
different people. Sometimes they don't speak to each other. Thanks in
advance. I'm looking forward to the FTE site for tips and help.

I am pretty sure the 64 - 66 F 100's all share common body components.
Now is the 64 a stepside and does it have a tailgate.....

Subject: Annual Pigeon Forge Supernationals

Ford Truck Enthusiasts makes an annual trek to the
F100 Supernationals in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This
is the largest 48-79 Ford truck show in the world.
Each year, list members and web site visitors meet
there. This year, the non-profit Association of
Ford Truck Enthusiasts will be meeting there. AFTE
has several things planned, such as a breakfast and
picnic. One of the members, Gary, asked me about a
month ago to announce the event to the lists but it
got misplaced in my to-do list.

If you're interested in attending this event, there
is a forum on the web site site message boards (events
forum).

Danny,

As you know the manual 4 speeds have the fixed yoke on the end of the tranny
also, I broke the forward joint and messed up the shaft and the fixed yoke.
I went to a place that has a good name for doing drive lines and they could
not get me a new tranny yoke. I did find one from a salvage yard manual
tranny, but I think they are more plentiful than the C-6 with the fixed yoke.
Because shortly after all of that I decided to swap in a C-6, finding one of
those transmissions with fixed yoke was hard to do. But, I did find one
after I made the decision to go with the slip joint type. Anyway it was some
time ago but here is the name and phone number of the salvage yard where I
saw one last. Pasco Auto Wrecking 1-509-547-7242.
