Good morning.

This is a not to all on the list that want intermittent wipers on there
73-79 Ford
trucks. I had been searching high and low ant the local yards for the box
and the
switch for my truck. Unable to find 1 in a truck I went looking else
where.
The cars
of the 70's have a totally different plug, so I scrapped that idea for a
bit. Last
weekend I found an 87 Ford truck with the intermittent wipers, so I grabbed
the switch
and control box. Low and behold, plugs right in. The only minor
difference
is that
the new switch has a separate ground wire. No big deal. Both of my trucks
now have
intermittent wipers. Next project, factory power windows.
Just thought I would share.

Scored a cargo light, switch and all the wiring off of a '69 Ranger and plan
to install it on dad's '67. The switch, wiring, and light (I was suprised
to find out it's REAL glass and not plastic) are in excellent condition
(paid $7.50 for the lot!), but the rubber gasket, while intact, is starting
to disintegrate. Does anyone know if this is being repro'ed?

Try LMC Truck (1-800-222-5664) http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://lmctruck.com

They list all of the parts for the lamp. They show two rubber parts, one is
the seal for the lens, it cost $5.95 the other is a pad for the entire
light, it is listed for $22.95

I hope this helps.

Rich,

You might try LMC Truck. They have a lot of that type stuff. I don't have my
catalog here at work. Oops, I don't think my catalog goes back to 67. Their
web site is
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.lmctruck.com
If it isn't on their website, you can order a free catalog for your year
range.

Thanks everyone! Dennis Carpenter has the gasket (pad) for $18.50 and LMC
has it for $22.95. I have ordered catalogs from both companies. Looks like
I may have opened a can of worms for dad with this one as a short search
through dennis' site produced several things he's been looking for...

The 10.25 ford is just as stout ,cept for all slight neck down on
pinion gear (Not a problem unless you rock crawl with 500 HP or
something). I've heard early one's had hub seal problems. Nice part is
it bolts in from 77.5 on up.

I did not cover the actual rebuild of the diff. One thing I just
thought of that will change is if you try to use an axle shaft to hold
diff to tighten/loosen ring gear bolts, it will slip with open or
limited slip diff. I had a detroit which was locked, so it was easy for
me :-).

Bruce, I'ld say the red truck (51-52) is only a One-ton F-3 or maybe
an F-4. It has too small of wheels and "hubcaps"(yuk), to be an F-5.
I'ld stick with 1-ton as wheels on F-4 were bigger also. Nice truck

Seems you guys need to quit overfilling your trucks. If you have
HD work, get a 1-ton dually and haul your camper and stones
safely. Hope you don't hurt someone on road when you can't
stop fast enough or a suspension, tire breaks. They also make
multi-ply tires that won't "squat" with a load, just cost a lot more.

Best thing I've done with my E150 was ditch the passenger car spec radials
and go to a 6 ply truck tire.
Rides better, stay cooler, and last longer. Weren't any more expensive when
you figure in the increased tire life. Not to mention piece of mind...

Subject: Re: 460 vs Modified

that swap is a piece of cake. you will need a set of conversion mounts.
I got mine from L&L for $119 and they even have a lifetime guarentee.
some of the problems you will find is you will probably need to find a
rear sump oil pan. Luckely my truck sits high enough that the front diff
cannot move far enough to contact the pan. 2wd has the crossmember under
the motor that will give problems as well. Another thing is the car
exhaust manifolds on the passenger side exits real close to the frame
rail. some people trim a small place in the frame to get clearence or
buy a truck style exhaust manifold. I just used a set of headers from
Stans Headers. and finaly another problem is you will find that Ford
started externaly balancing the 460 in 1980. if you get a 1980 or newer
460 you will have to get the flywheel or flexplate from the donor
vehicle. if you get a 79 or older 460 your existing flexplate or
flywheel will work.

Good luck to ya

Me personally, I would go with an electric fan if for no more reason than HP
gains. Electric fans are well worth the money a dont burn out as much as
some say. Plus you can set the fan thermostat at a certain temp for better
combustion in the motor. Call me crazy but I swear it. It works wonders in
my 79 F350.

Subject: 20th century Lincoln 4x4
Date: Tue, 25 Apr 2000 15:08:20 PDT

So, does the "intermitent wipers" are gonna become "permanent"?
(JOKE!)
On the same subject, I had the same idea; looking for intermitent
wipers in late 70's Lincoln, and I found one last year, started to
take apart the intermitent wiper switch and box, also started to
remove the headlight delay switch with auto-dimmer, LOOKS like they bolt-on
to my 1979 F-150 4x4, but alas, it was becoming too dark to work under the
dash, and snow was begining on top of that........
Well, IF I can get some time, I'll go back to that junk-yard as
soon as I can, and get those switches! Yep, LOOKS like they ALL
bolted-on so far, and there was that nice pair of electric seats
in that 1976 Lincoln....... Now, what can I use the vacuum-switch
for the headlight's doors for, in my truck? mmmm...... thinking....
Anybody have any idea?
Then, I'll just have to swith the FORD scrip on my hood for a
Lincoln script! (But, how am I gonna do for the tailgate???)
20th century Lincoln 4x4?? grins......

Ford 390cid For Sale. Selling with C6 automatic transmission.

Purchased seperately from truck as project-no time to build.

Here's the facts:
a.. Block: Mirror image "105" found in cast. "X" found in cast. "D3TE" found in cast. Engine is currently seperated from transmission, tore down to short block and hanging on engine stand ready for inspection.
b.. Heads: Nothing special here. "D2TEAA" found in cast.
c.. Intake: Nothing special here either. 2V. "D4TE9425B1(or i)A" found in cast.
d.. Carb: Present. 2V.
I originally thought I may mistakenly picked up a 391, but this block appears to be built to 390 specs.

If memory serves, the worst cylinder was 0.006 out and I was planning a rebuild. Never heard it run, but it's torn down so there's nothing to hide. I'll be glad to answer any questions and will gladly accept suggestions.

$295.00 OBO.
