Most of it is my own stupidity. I buy the fuses I think I need then when
I try to put them in their to long for the slot. The blades are Jim proof.
Need a 10 amp buy a 10 amp. Works every time! :) Then there's the problem of
them sticking in there do to the corrosion I not only brake the bad one but
the one next to it as well. Then putting in the new fuse (once I get the
right one) the connectors can't hold them in, having lost all elasticity do
to the corrosion.

Subject: Well, THAT sucks!

Today was "swap the intake manifold" day on my 71 F100.
Off with the stock D3TE, and on with an Edelbrock performer 390.

FE intakes are always a joy to R+R, since You have to remove the
rocker arm assy's and pushrods to get the manifold off.
You also have to remove the water pump (and alternator) to deal
with that silly little bypass hose...

Anyway, all went pretty smooth during disassembly. I managed to
get that 78 lb boat anchor off without trashing my spine or anything
else. This motor is pretty leak-free so it wasn't even too gross
to work on.

I pulled the lifters and examined cam lobes while I was in there.
All looks good. (-:
Got everything ready for assy, got all the gasket surfaces clean and
oil free, gooped up the intake gaskets with some sealant, left the cork
end gaskets off and used a big bead of ultra-black RTV instead.
I let the silicone skin over for a few minutes, then carefully set
the intake on as straight down as possible without sliding it on the
silicone. Used an old distributor to make sure it was lined up
correctly, put the bolts in and torqued all to spec.

So far so good eh? Next take all the marker tags off the pushrods
and reinstall them, then put the rockers on. Torque the rockers to
spec and start adjusting valves.
I got them adjusted on a couple cylinders, but when I get to #6
exhaust I realize that the pushrod rubs the side of the hole in
the manifold during a small part of the engines rotation! )-:
Further examination reveals one more that rubs a little, and another
that is damn near. It will probably rub at high RPM's...
All the rest are just fine.

Arrrghh!!! I had done a trial assy this morning. I set the manifold
on and checked port alignments, put the pushrods in and the rockers on
and CHECKED for pushrod clearances and everything LOOKED close, but O.K.
But once everything was torqued down, gaskets crushed etc, there
was definately a problem!!! They just barely rub, but enough. Sigh.
The Crane pushrods are quite a little fatter than the stock
ones, but they were just FINE with the stock manifold.

Soooo... tomorrow morning it comes off again, clean up the silicone
mess, etc, and buy some fresh gaskets and another tube of ultrablack.
It should only take a couple minutes with the die grinder to eliminate
the interferance once the manifold is off...

I just hate some days...

I think beer is out of the question. I suggest a nice bottle of Jack.

Thanks Bear,

I will check the kickdown rod tomorrow. I just assumed that they hooked it
back up. Although it never would kick down above 60 before the rebuild.
There was a lot wrong with it though. I also seem to recall someone
telling me that there is an adjustment screw on the kickdown. Maybe all I
need to do is adjust it. Ya think??

With you irritate idle I would suggest possibly mixture?? I would suggest
a
tune up and have the mixture adjusted. With the passing gear... When they
put your transmission back in did they hook up a kick down rod from the
tranny to the crab. Below 60mph The modulator pressure will let it down
shift but it won't always if it is over 60mph.

What are the rpm's going to be if you kickdown into 2nd at above 60? Might
have to go to an adjustable modulator to allow it to kickdown going that
fast.

Finally finished with that stupid site!

I check out my page and I found that the full location wasn't in the
tags for the graphics. First time I've let FrontPage 98 handle the whole
thing. The string for the graphics is
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://home1.gte.net/deconblu/halloween/image/filename.gif FrontPage 98 only
put image/filename.gif. I just went through it using the HTML editor and
added the rest of the string to all the graphics and uploaded it with
WS_FTP.
I am sorry to you and anyone else who experienced problems trying to
view my site. Even though it's Halloween and it's like me to play evil
tricks, it was unintentional! ",
So who wants to give it a go and let me know if the same thing happens
to them. ;)

Well after reading it, I was happy I didn't waste my youth in school! You

When you get it finished, pull into a gas station and someone will ask you
what the little gas tank is for. Tell them you built a carburetor that gets
125 miles to the gallon. You needed to put this little tank in because your
gas would turn green by the time you used it all in the stock tank. (:

Can't see it happening that way Bro! You'll get me, but I'll be expecting

From: Ken Payne
Subject: Lets keep it clean.

I do not moderate or edit (I've made it so I can't so I won't play
God) list activity. However, I'm going to climb up and preach for
just a minute....

Our home page has a logo on the bottom left hand corner which says
"We rated with RSAC." What this means is that I went to their
site, which is the largest information site for parents to use to
help monitor page content for their children.

I registered what type of content we had, what the language used was
and how "adult" the content is. I basically rated our site as "safe"
for children so parents would feel comfortable allowing their children
to visit our site. Nothing like getting the Ford bug to bite them
while their young!

Lets try to keep it clean and on the topics of Ford trucks. I'm not
one to criticize anyone's lifestyle but we all need to be aware of
who might be and who is on these lists. We have people on the lists
in their teens and early teens and from all walks of life. I have
filters set up to binaries (at least many of them) and I'd hate to
have to add additional filters.

The Internet is under a lot of pressure for censorship. I for one,
believe that the best way to allow **any** content on the Internet is
to give parents a way to monitor and censor their children. Without
this the government will receive pressure and will eventually step in.
If parents cannot rely on RSAC and similar sites for accurate
information then the sites are useless.

Finally, let me say this: I'm not picking on anyone nor am I judging
anyone, I just feel its best for everyone involved if we can target
the largest audience possible. I think most everyone here will
agree with me on this issue.

Climbing back down and wearing my asbestos suit. Comments welcome,
but I believe the issue needs to be moved off the list and into
private email.
