Well, I'll try to take pictures, but don't get your hopes too
high on this, as I don't have a camera of mine, will have to
borrow one, and when I'll briefly be around that truck in a few
days, I don't know if the owner is gonna be around; prefer to ask
him permission before taking pictures, and I won't be able to stay

Fordsters,
1) I "FOUND" the wiring diagram to my '77 F100 this weekend -
it resides in the HAYNES service manual for '73 - '79 Ford Trucks.
It is excellent, multiple pages long, complete and easy to read.
Color codes are there as well as a full description of my formerly
rusted-out (used naval jelly on it) fuse block which is not
legible. This is an indispensable item and was well worth the $12.
Better than the owner's manual which I don't have. HAYNES has
manuals for other year trucks as well. Available at most auto
parts and big book stores like Borders. PS: the Chilton manual's
diagram was terrible in comparison. Chilton = Pathetic.

2) Carlisle Pennsylvania (south central PA) hosts the Truck
Nationals the weekend of June 23-25. I was there last year. Truck
show, parts, swap meet, everything!! Something like $5 plus
parking to attend. Info at website: www.carsatcarlisle.com

Hmmm. I'll post this to the list in case my rememory is wrong again ... the
352 though should be a 4.00" bore and 3.5" stroke just like the 351 ...

Somehow that doesn't seem right, anyone got the numbers in front of them to
verify this ?


The problem comes in that a 352 and 360 share a crank, so you have to actually
measure the bore to get the size of the motor ...

I guess you can only lurk on a list for so long...

I'm getting my truck on the road after two years of storage and can't find
any of my manuals 'cause, you guessed it, they're in storage too. Can anyone
tell me the firing order and which is the number one cylinder on a 460?
Please e-mail me directly as I receive the digest version of the list.

I've been on the list for the past six months, mainly to keep in touch with
the Ford truck community. With family and work my old truck hasn't had a lot
of attention. It's a 1968 F-250 4x4 with a 460, C6, NP205 combination
transplanted into it. I'd like to take it out into the mountains around my
home town, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Thanks in advance,

Subject: 351 W, C, M or 400 ???

--- Received from MACDGA.JB1882H 301-790-5580 00-04-24 13:14

Hello,
My '77 F100 originally had a 302 as per the "G" in the VIN
number. According to the PO, it now has a 351W. According to the
three finger versus two fingers between water pump housing and
thermostat inlet rule, and the firing order, it is either a 351 or
400 but definitely not a 302. This truck purchase included a bag
of new internal engine parts such as rings, bearings, timing
chain/gear and gasket set that the PO said were not needed (he
traded a car for it and apparently the previous PO thought it
needed a rebuild. But, it runs fine now - good oil pressure, no
smoke, etc. - perhaps a valve seal job was done).

OK, the above are all of the clues.

1) How do I confirm that it is in fact a Windsor 351 and not from
the Cleveland or "M" plant?
2) What city does the "M" signify?
3) External difference between 351 and 400? Or is this just an
internal bore/stroke thing?

> Thanks, Jeff

PS: valve covers and air cleaner are all chrome aftermarket and no
ID decals anywhere.

Here is a nice duo picture taken in my travels this weekend. Turns out that
the “barrel” on the back of the truck on the right was used as a promo
novelty for selling root beer at events and fairs. I was told that it was
painted with a large A&W logo. Seems that it brought out quite a few fond
memories and smiles from people around here. To view the pic proceed to
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://142.13.30.188/shared_downloads/trucks.jpg picture is 114k.

OK, y'all probably think I'm crazy here, but I need to do
something about the noise coming out of the glass-packs behind the
headers on my F100. I don't mind so much, but part of the reason
for sacrificing and getting an automatic instead of manual tranny
was so any of my family members could drive it. The roar would
bother them. I'd like to leave the headers and put dual mufflers
on. Questions:

1) Any recommendation for a particular muffler brand? This is NOT
a race truck - just for work/normal driving. I'm on a budget.

2) Should I install a cross-over "H" pipe? I've heard this
balances out the pressures/exhaust "pulses" and makes the engine
run smoother.

I have and FT engine that I'm trying to put in 56 Big Truck. Need a smaller
fan. Problem is: Fan bolt spacing is wider on FT engines. Anyone ever try
to redrill holes in blades to match pump? The pump has a 3/4" center that
my fan doesn't use, it has a large 1-1/4 or so hole. I'm thinking the p/up
fans will have the 3/4" (or so) hole to center it and I need only drill new holes.
Not sure if there is enough flat area on fan to allow this w/out being too thin
at hole edge. The other choice is to drill the pump plate and I don't think
that would be as easy. Are all Ford fans about the same or do I need one
from the earlier FE type engines? Maybe I should get aftermarket flex-fan
to get more blades. Cooling may be a problem with this installation. Do
electrics have enough power to cool w/out help from eng fan?

Hey folks, just a quick question. Does anyone know if the spindles on a dana
60HD from an F-350 and the spindles from a 60 on a 250 are the same? If so,
how bout the spindles from a 44 and a 60? Reason Im askin is the spindles on
my Dads HD dana 60 are messed up. They were ground down so a 15 inch rim
would fit, and after 15 yrs of service, they have spread a little, and arent
holding the calipers tight anymore. In fact, the truck is down because it
allowed the shim and spring to fall out, which let the pads fall out also.
Im trying to avoid having to press these back in, as that isnt exact, and
will also weaken them further, allowing this to happen again more frequently.
Any info would be great, Thanks everyone.

The thermostat housing will bolt to the top of the block if it is a Cleveland

the front of the intake manifold.

It doesn't signify a city, it means it is a 351 Modified from a 400 block

Date: Mon, 24 Apr 2000 11:33:56 -0700

Our '77 E150's steering column is disintegrating. The upper bearing is
going, the turn signal switch gave up the ghost yesterday and the cruise
control steering wheel switches are falling apart (the cruise does work!).

I can pick up a tilt (bonus for SWMBO) column out of an '87 E150 very
reasonably. I realize the difference in the lock being on the column in the
'87 versus our '77's lock in the dash. I figured I could disable the lock
on the column and keep the existing ignition switch wiring.

What I really want to know:
Has anyone made this swap? Will the newer column physically fit?

Hey Darrel, maybe I'm way off base here, but did you just grind down the caliper
support ? 'cause on my D44 (76 1/2 ton, so maybe not even applicable) the caliper
mount is sandwiched between the knuckle and the spindle, so you'd just have
to come up with the part that holds the caliper and not have to worry about
what shape the spindle or anything is in since all that does is hold the caliper
and put a little space in there between the spindle and the knuckle ...

All the Ford manifolds I've seen list the firing order right in front of the
carb (well some list it behind if they're out of old enough vehicles. Also
they cast the cylinder number into the intake runner so you can find the #1
pretty quickly ... seems like its the right front on the FE and W's that I've

The W has the thermostat housing bolt directly onto the manifold, so the bolts
will be facing forward and back in the truck ... the M/C bolts to the block
in front of the manifold so the bolts will be pointing straight up.

>2) What city does the "M" signify?

the Midland plant that they were made at if I remember right ...

Between the M series 351 and 400 I think its all internal ... the dowel trick
might work as the 351 is a 3.5" stroke and the 400 is a 4" stroke ... so remove
a plug, and put the piston at TDC, put a dowel in til it touches the piston
and make a mark. Rotate the crank 180degrees and repeat, the distance between
the marks is the stroke ...

Just grab some Turbo's from the local muffler shop, the Super Turbo from Dynomax
carries a life time warranty now I think, and I've had mine (from before they
gave them that warranty) for 6 years or so and they're just starting to get
thin ... I expect to blow them out soon, but probably not til after I put the
headers on :)

That's debatable as to whether you should or not. Mine on my truck have always
been true duals with no balance tube, but next time I think I'm going to put
an X in just for fun ... can't say it will hurt or help either way, but the
theory holds that you want the H at least ...

I saw this in a regional trader paper. Sure hope somebody finds a home for
it.

65 F-350 4x4, strong V-8 and running gear, restorable bed, solid body, new
tires,
$1500, Fennville, Mich. 616-561-2917

(looks like it has the usual cab & fender rust, but it's pretty cool anyway.
Odd thing is, it has a 64-66 "Styleside" bed?? I thought all the 4x4's of
that vintage had a 57-60 bed?) Maybe it's a "home built"....dunno. Hello

Saw this in the local paper, and thought someone might

" '67-'72 Ford pickup tailgate, came from Texas,
very solid, $40. Call (570) 247-2701 "

The phone exchange indicates that the place is in

Subject: Re: 351 W, C, M or 400 ???

1) The 351W looks like a large version of the 302. On the 351W, the
thermostat housing is mounted on the front of the intake manifold, where
the 351M is mounted on top of the block.
2) The M doesn't stand for a city. It stands for Modified, as in a
modified 400.
3) There is no external difference between the 351M and the 400. In the
70's after the demise of the 351C, Ford fell behind on production of the
351W. They started putting Windsor cranks with really odd connecting
rod and piston assemblies into 400 blocks to fill the gap. The stroke
on the 351M is 3.50". The stroke on the 400 is 4.00"

Subject: 9 inch gear swap

hi gurus---

how complex is it to do a ring and pinion swap in a 9" with traction loc? i have a
rear with 3.9 gears and want to switch to 3.50 for economy and drivability. never
really worked with rear ends before, but am reasonably mechanically inclined. the
shop wants ~$500 if its out of the car, ~$600 if its in the car. I can get a ring
and pinion and an installation kit including bearings from summit or the like for
~$250. big difference money wise!

anybody know a good source of instructions for doing such a swap? blow up diagrams
of a 9" trac-loc rear? primers on rear ends in general?

tia for all bits of knowledge,

not much help in the set up area but you are going to need to find
out if the gears are 3.89 or 3.92 There is a carrier split here. if
I remember right 3.89 and down are one carrier and the 3.92 and up
are a different carrier. I'm a little fuzzy on all the specs but
just something to double check first.

The caliper brackets are a piece unto themselves. Not sure which
year D60 you were looking for but 78/9 used the same caliper (twin
piston) as the HD D44 so the caliper mounts might be the same.

Subject: Kingpins Again!

Ok, list, I know a few weeks ago this was a topic and I have them on file but
I am not at home. My great new toy (the '77 Explorer I just put up for sale
yest decided to start throwing fits) decided to desintegrate all of its
fresh grease in the wheel bearings and completely lock up. Spindles trashed
to say the least. I am 350 miles from home without even a shop manual. I
need to get the spindle off and am unsure of how to get the kingpin out. I
have removed the grease fitting cap type deals on both ends and on the side I
removed the nut off the stud. My question is what next? I remembered that
nut being a bolt which acted as a wedge, you remove it and pound the kingpin
out, but this one was just a nut on a stud so i am lost. Is this someones
rigging and I just need to unthread the stud somehow and continue or? There
is a junkyard down the road, if I can get this old spindle assembly off I can
go get a new one and head home. Just gotta figure out how to get it off.
Any responses would be appreciated so I can get home. Once again it is a '77
F-150 4x2. Thanks all.

Recently I told you guys that I bought a '78 F250. Well on either side, just
behind the hood and around where the antenna (on the pass side) is, the
steel looks galvanized, and paint wouldn't stick for years. Any ideas? I'm
