Welcome to the list Curtis! The part you are looking for is the "Upper
Finish Panel" in black (believe it or not Ford even offered this panel in
Brown in 1976) Fords part number is; D3TZ-99425A34B . This panel has been
Obsolete from Ford for several years now. I have attended most of the major
swap meets around the country for many years now and have yet to find a
good used one. And since this is an aluminum trim piece then it would be
very difficult to repair one yourself, although there is many shops that do
this kind of trim rebuilding, but you can bet it will cost a bundle.

Here is the names and numbers of two Obsolete Parts Dealers that I know
still have this NOS part still in stock. But these guys will force you to
dig deep into your pockets also! So before you tell them to "go fly a kite"
remember, if they have the only ones left around and you need a perfect one
for your restore NOW, then their price might not be too bad afteral!!

DALE KING OBSOLETE PARTS - 606-787-5031
Liberty, KY.

BRUCE FOLEY NOS PARTS - 205-852-8268
Brownsboro, AL.


Both of these guys will have a booth at the Supernats if you plan to attend
and I am very sure they will have this panel with them.

Good Luck!!

There had to be a reason why it was disassembled. What ever that
problem was, it would still be there. As far as the rest of the truck
goes, it all depends. An engine in good condition left out in the
weather for 2 years may need to be overhauled do to rust damage (and God
only knows what has made it a home). Same goes for the rest of the
truck. Bottom line. It would take someone a lot of work, time and money
with a great desire to restore your truck to get it back on the road
(that would be most of us on the list). Waiting for Daddy to do it,
lacks the required motive.
You may find someone willing to trade a less collectable Ford truck
in running condition that needs some cosmetic care. You may be better
off.

Good luck.

Later!

Subject: rag joint

Howdy howdy,

Called the dealer for a rag joint for my '66 F250, and he said that
there was a choice of two part #s, depending on the s/n. Both are
special order btw. Well I can't find the s/n anywhere on the truck or
the engine.

He also said that one part# is for a pin diameter of 0.41" and the other
for pin diameter 0.56". But we don't know what "pin" the book is
referring too. The steering box shaft and steering column shaft diameter
is roughly 3/4", and the two pins that are in the rag joint itself are
significantly smaller than 0.41".

Anyone have a clue?<<<<<<

Hey Mark, head on down to `Pep Boys` and look in the `HELP` Parts Isle.
There you will find several Rag Joint repair kits. you may have to choose to
buy 2 kits if the pins in one are different than what you need .
you may find the EXACT one there also... I have replaced mine and had to
grind off the old pin posts to use the replacement type pins in the kit.

hope this helps ya

But you probably should ... Left and Right is from the driver's perspective
with the motor mounted firmly in its mounts ... at least that's how I always
have been told and how I've always seen it done ... right=pass. side, left=
driver's side ...

No wonder everyone gets confused all the time sheesh ...

maybe the book you got it out of refers to it backwards the whole time, so that
would apply. (that would confuse the heck out of me too)

Is 65' the first year of the 300 Six? What differences are there, if any,
from the early 300's and later 300's. I'm looking at a 65' F-350 with one
and would like to know if I would be able to swap in any 300 six in its
place?

Ford made two versions of the 300 inline. I have one of each the first is a
300 HD that came out of a 68 F-350 and the other is a 300 inline from a 79
F-150. They are all the same except in 74 the switched to the Dura Spark
ignition. All parts are interchangeable. The main differences are that the
300HD had forged crank, rods, and pistons as opposed to the regular 300 that
had cast crank, rods, pistons. The 300HD was available from '61 thru present
79 in F-350, F-600, and various industrial and agricultural tractors. If
your is the original motor hang on to it cause its probably one of the
strongest motors Ford built. Just change the ignition to a Dura-Spark and
feed it oil and gas and it will run forever.

Subject: SEMA Action Network Legislative Alert - U.S. House of

As some of you may have noticed by the main page of the Ford
Truck Enthusiasts web site, we recently joined SEMA. Just as
FTE got SEMA alerts as a club, it now received additional
alerts as a member. Following is an alert concerning CAFE
Standards:

LEGISLATIVE ALERT

U.S. House of Representatives to Consider Stricter
Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards

CAFE mandates that all manufacturers meet fuel economy targets for their
vehicle fleet. For the last several years, the automotive industry has
successfully fought to freeze the fleet fuel economy average at 27.5 mpg for
cars and 20.7 mpg for light trucks (SUV’s, pickups, minivans). Now, a few
members of the U.S. House of Representatives, in a misguided attempt to
reduce pollution, gas prices and U.S. dependence on foreign oil, are
actively seeking to end the current freeze on CAFE standards. If they are
successful, the effects on consumer choice, not to mention vehicle safety,
will be dramatic.

Contact Your Federal Representatives to Oppose Lifting the CAFE Freeze

Higher CAFE Standards will…

Limit consumer choice in purchasing vehicles. Manufacturers will be forced
to make SUVs, light trucks and minivans more expensive, smaller, less
powerful, and less useful in terms of hauling and towing capacity.

Result in less vehicle availability and higher prices. Light trucks and SUV
’s, noted as “gas guzzlers,” will inevitably be phased out in order for
manufacturers to meet increasing government-mandated fuel economy standards.
In addition, CAFE increases in the light truck market will cost consumers up
to $2,750 in higher vehicle prices.

Lead to more deaths on our nation’s highways. Increased CAFE standards for
larger vehicles will force consumers into smaller cars with higher accident
fatality rates. A USA Today analysis found that “46,000 people have died in
crashes they would have survived in bigger heavier cars.” This works out to
“roughly 7,700 deaths for every mile per gallon gained” by driving smaller
cars (USA Today, July 2, 1999).

Higher CAFE Standards will not…

Improve on pollution. CAFE was enacted in 1975 to conserve fuel, not to
reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The idea that manmade CO2 emissions will
drastically reduce through higher CAFE standards is inaccurate. Even
doubling the fuel economy of new cars in the U.S. would reduce manmade CO2
emissions less than one percent worldwide.

Reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. To date, CAFE and small cars have
done little to reduce gasoline consumption and the U.S. imports more foreign
oil today than when CAFE standards were first imposed.

Save the consumer money at the gas pump with more fuel efficient vehicles.
Total gas consumption depends on factors such as total miles traveled, the
make-up of the overall vehicle fleet and gasoline prices, NOT simply on new
vehicle mileage standards.

Contact your Member of the U.S. House of Representatives to oppose any
raising of CAFE standards. If you need assistance in determining who your
legislators are, this information can be obtained by calling the SEMA
Washington, D.C. office at 202/783-6007 or you can access this information
via the internet at www.sema.org/fedleg/legislatorrequest.

For assistance in turning this alert into a letter to a legislator, go to
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.sema.org/consumer/fedleg/ and choose SEMA's link on "How to Lobby
Elected Officials."

Please fax a copy of your letters to us at 202/783-6024 or mail to: SEMA
Washington Office, 1317 F St., NW, Ste. 500, Washington, D.C. 20004, Attn:

The main question is: which way was Slim facing when he went down with
the bomb? Forward, or backwards? I can see him waving his hat but dont
know which way he was facing.

The letter said to sit on the motor, beating the bellhousing behind you, so
that tells me face forward.
