Subject: the smog police are coming

As Ms. Manners would say

Good Morning Gentle Ford Persons...

I'm in the beginning stages of an engine build for a '53 F-100 street
truck..

Engine will be a Lincoln 460. Plan on building it mild with
streetable performance the goal.

All you guys in Cal. have to deal with the smog police and yearly
inspections/testing, but here in Ala (the 51st state to ever do
anything) we are still inspection free.

Lately there in Birmingham the ozone levels have been bringing out the
red flags and EPA rules have been broken so there are rumblings about
inspections/testing and "Formulated fuels" (methanol, ethanol, PTME or
whatever)

My question is: If I build this engine "smog equipment deficient"
what will have to be done in the future, if necessary to retrofit it
to meet impending requirements ? I'm sure the environmental group in
the state where I reside isn't smart enough to come up with any reg's
based on OUR air and will probably just copy the "worst case" regs
available just to be safe, i.e. California regs.

Any recommendations, suggestions will be greatly appreciated...It will
probably be easier to do some stuff now that have to spend the same
money later.

thanks

john

John: All you will need to do is add catalytic converters and the
emissions will drop siginificantly. I live in Calif. and I had real
trouble getting mine to pass and before the next test, I will add
catalytics.

Subject: RE: the smog police are coming

you may not need it. do you know if the epa crap will apply to a 53? or
by engine year? here in pa in the cities that have epa regs, i think it
goes by model year of vehicle only. from '68 on up.

if emmissions is the concern, the late model fuel injection motors can be
built with very good street performance and still pass the sniffer.

but, if you build and need to meet regs after the fact, it can be done.
dual catalytic converters and a well jetted small carb with a good
ignition timed properly, egr, etc. maybe a performance fuel injection unit
from holley or someplace will help even more.

build it, don't worry about it, or build a late model engine with a cam,
headers, k&n, computer, etc.

Subject: Re: Ammeter help!!

George,
I went to the 4x4now page and could not find a link to BigBroncos.
Could you please list the whole URL to the page? Coincidentally I just
delt with the same problem on my truck (76 F-150). I engineered the fix
myself and I would like to compare notes with what others have done to
fix the problem.

Daniel,
George is right. As best I can tell there is an engineering defect in
the design of the ammeter circuit. (I guess since Ford built such a
superb truck they had to put some gremlin in it to give the other
manufacturers a chance to catch up ;o) ). Anyway the good news is that
you have a brand new ammeter in your dash!! That's because the way the
circuit is designed the meter has not been used in its 20 years of
life!!! The bad news is you may have to modify the harness to fix the
problem. I modified mine and posted the results last week. The rest of
this reply is a repost telling what I did in case you missed it. Good
luck. It can be fixed.

The shunt was located in the wiring harness that connects the
alternator, voltage regulator and battery side of the starter solenoid.
Near the starter solenoid the harness has three other connectors, one
has 1 wire, one has 2 wires and one has 3 wires. The 3 wire connector
has a black, a red and a yellow wire. The black wire is larger than the
other 2. The yellow and the red wire connect to the ammeter in the
dash. If you remove the harness and unwrap it there is a very large
black wire that connects between the red and yellow wire. That is the
shunt.

I got a resistance wire from the parts store. Ford used a wire from the
ignition switch to the control module of their electronic ignitions. I
believe it is a copper nickle alloy. The resistance wire that I used
had pink insulation it was 60 inches long and had about 1.5 ohms
resistance. This converted to 0.025 ohms per inch. I had calculated
that I needed 0.0128 ohms (I calculated the internal resistance of the
meter to be 0.7ohms). I figured 0.025 ohms was close enough. Next
problem was that the resistance wire was a small diameter and wouldn't
carry the current if the alternator had to go to max output. I
estimated that the resistance wire was 1/6 the diameter of the shunt so
I multiplied the length by 6 and cut 6 sections of wire. Six 6 inch
long resitor wires in parallel have the same resistance as one 1 inch
long resistor wire (Ohm's law for parallel resistors).

I cut the shunt in the middle, twisted the 6 resistor wires together and
soldered them into the shunt. I ended up with a lot more resistance
than I wanted but so far it just makes the needle more sensitive. Like
I said, I may try to reduce the resistance later or I may just put a
fuse inline with the meter to protect it from spikes. Under normal
operation it doesn't reach full deflection even with headlights,
airconditioner, radio etc on.

Disclaimer: I don't know how this will work long term or if it will
cause a fire or shock hazard. I am willing to do this to my own truck
because it is my truck. If anyone does try this be VERY careful to
properly insulate all of the connections. I realize that I risked
shorting something out or overheating a harness. If you want to try to
duplicate this consult with someone that knows auto electronics to help
you.

The BigBroncos list just had an extensive discussion of the problem.
Seems
that the Amp meter needs a shunt to work properly. It doesn't have
enough.
I can copy over the directions, but go to 4x4 now.com and check out the
BigBroncos page. Go to the archives. Its all there.

This reminds me, I always got chills thinking about driving down the
road with gas inside the cab like the VW's used to do. I presume the
heater is gravity fed so the idea of using the vehicle's fuel tank
and pump to supply it is out of the question? Having pressure fed
fuel in the cab would probably be worse, don't know?

2 gals makes one heck of a fire if it ever gets loose. I blew myself
up trying to burn some brush and only put about a pint on the pile.
(big pile) What a surprise that was! :-( Arms and legs peeled for
weeks but no permantent damage except my pride :-)
