If you have a locker so both tires turn together, exactly, then jack
up both sides and the ratio is 1:1, that is direct reading, one turn
of wheel = x turns of drive shaft.

If open or limited slip (except gear type) then jack up one side and
multiply the turns of the drive shaft by 2. (One driven wheel goes
twice as fast so inversely the drive shaft goes half as fast)

If I understand your numbers you have a 3.00 or 3.08 rear gear since
the .08 is hard to determine without getting pretty carefull with
pointers etc.. This method will not tell you what ratio to order to
match the other since it's not accurate enough. You need to pull a
cover and count teeth to be sure but this gives you and idea of what
you have for determining upgrades or tire sizes etc..

P.S., I suppose if you calculate it out for 10 turns of the wheel
you could get pretty close but it still wouldn't tell you the tooth
count for replacement purposes :-)

An article I read recently suggested that every one knew the spread
bore was the way to go into the future but the developement of the
various fuel injection systems cut it off in it's prime :-)

When they began developing the injection systems they quit working on
the spread bore designs right across the board. I would venture to
guess that the Rochesters and Carters we can buy today are late 60's
or early 70's designs. The Eddlebrock may be an exception since it's
a hybrid. It takes several years for a system to become mature
enough to put in production so apparently they had been working on
the EFI for quite some time. What erkles me is the fact that they
had to go out and re invent the wheel instead of using a proven
design AND BOLT PATTERN so we can't just bolt on any spread bore we
want??

Holley is noted for performance and NASCAR uses their large dominator
with equal size venturis almost exclusively but most of us are
driving ours on the street and back and forth to work so while we
want to be able to blow off a Cy--y now and then we don't want to go
to the poor house to do it.

The Rochester and Carter and Holley spread bores were designed for GM
primarily and both Ford and Chrysler used them as well but not to the
same degree. Apparently there was a patent in the way that pronpted
Ford to design their own with a distinct bolt pattern and it works
very well but can't be arbitrarily replaced with the "Standard"
patterns made by Carter, Rochester and Holley.

The advantage is high CFM at WOT but small primaries at cruise and
around town giving much better metering and better economy but with a
hidden punch in the secondaries. The Rochester has the largest
difference between primary and secondary I've seen so it's my first
choice. The Offy dual/dual plane manifold uses a separate plane for
the secondaries which is "made" for the spread bore design IMHO so
I'm keenly interested in it. The spread bore design allows for a
rediculous size carb with small carb metering.

To get good low end metering in a square bore (not really square in
most cases) would require something like a 600 or even 500 CFM carb
on a 460 but it would choke at about 4k rpm with this setup. With a
750 or even 850 CMF spread bore you get the same metering at low
speeds as the smaller carb but still have the WOT capacity for high
revs. I'm really amazed more enthusiasts don't pick up on this???
Maybe it's because the after market caters to the racing crowd and in
this limited application, 4 equal diameter venturis make more power
so the manifolds available through the after market reflect this as
well and the spread bore commands too small a portion of the total
market to get too excited about it. I have to applaud Offy for
sticking with it :-)

To answer your question, the square bores typically have a slight
difference between the primary and secondary venturis, perhaps 1/16"
at most and the bolt pattern is a rectangle and quite standard across
the industry. The spread bores have a very distinctive difference
between the primaries and secondaries, as much as an inch or more and
have a wide end and a small end in the bolt pattern so that they are
not interchangeable. Ford has their own pattern which no one else
uses nor do they make carbs to fit it so OEM manifolds are pretty
useless unless you want to stay with very limited tuning capacity in
the OEM carbs. There are adapters which will adapt one to the other
if you have the universal manifold stud locations pre tapped in the
manifold or some will adapt square to spread but these are less
efficient than bolting to a manifold made for that carb. Enter the
Offy :-)

AMEEEEEEEENNNNNNN! My bronco has awful brakes! I rented a ditch
witch to trench my barn plumbing and took off out ot the lot headed
for home with my mind on everything but my brakes. First stop I had

There are different size shanks on the balls too. I look for the
largest I can find and open up the hole if I have to. The weakest
point of the hitch is the ball shank. I went to Murrays and looked
and the 2" ball had 3 different shank sizes depending on hitch
rating. I got the biggest one they had to fit a 2" receiver. Think
it was 1-1/8" or 1-1/4" dimeter shank, biggest one I ever saw for a
2" and only rated for 6k# :-) I guess at some point you go to fifth
wheels right?

I can't remember working on one with single spring at the top?
Usually they have one for each side so they are independenly pulled
against the cylinder push pins. Maybe the older ones had a single
spring???

Is the cable the self adjuster cable or emergency brake cable? Is
there a little half moon shaped piece of tin under one of the
springs? I can't remember when they went to self adjusters? Seems
like my 67 didn't have the cable?

I have the 68 factory service manuals, if you have time to wait I can
take a peek in there tonight but don't know if it will help?

Don't know about qualifications but the dual plane is designed so
each side has roughly equal length runners to all 4 cylinders it goes
to. The passenger side is deeper so I'm going to guess that the top
plane has the 2 and 3 on one side and 5 and 8 on the other and the
bottom the other 4 so the center ones travel across or around the
plenum to get to the ports and the end ones have less distance to go
directly to their respective sides. The object is to get them the
same length and diameter to even up the fuel delivery.

Single planes can be made to deliver more CFM in a straighter line so
there is less drop out of the fuel due to turns but the 4 center most
runners are shorter by some margin than the outer 4 so low rpm
performance suffers. The higher the rise the more equal the runners
and in the dual quad setup the runners can be made very equal but
this requires special attention to jetting and mechanical secondaries
which work with the primaries for best results AFAIK. One of the
reasons the Ch--y bow tie is so popular is that you can use single
planes with them and get pretty good distribution at lower rpms due
to the postion of the ports. Casting dual plane manifolds is also
much cheaper than for fords for the same reason. This is also one of
the reasons the saying "Ch--y's like to run lean" came about IMHO :-)
Course Ford exhaust valves don't burn up as easily as the two center
ones on a Ch--y either so who wins?

Bottom line is the dual plane covers 90% of all street applications
very well and coupled with the spread bore carb can be a reall
performer. The square bores and single plane manifolds are for guys
who don't care how much is costs to run their rigs but just want
power at any cost. Of course there are varying degrees of this as
well but then we're compromising aren't we??

Explain the nature of the swap to us?? I'm a little confused about
what you're trying to do? The 78 F-250 has the dana 44 Hd which is
much stronger than the 150 or bronco. The outer hub and stub shaft
will interchange AFAIK but why do you want to do that?

I didn't look at the rotations, I looked at your bottom line. A 4:7
ratio is actually a 4:14 which is 3.5 but as one respondee suggested,
why more than one turn of the tire? If you want extreme accuracy,
such as to pick up a .08 in a 3.08 ratio for instance, use 10 turns
of the tire and use pointers, other wise one turn should suffice :-)

I have been reading the posts to this list and think they are all fantastic.
I have never thought of posting until now. I hope someone can help me.
I have been reading all the info on the differences between the 360 and the
390 and all the similarities. I am rebuilding a 1970 360 and am in search of
a set of headers for this engine. I have contacted several companies and no
one has them. If the heads for the 360 and 390 are the same would a set of
headers for a 390 work?

Also if anyone has any tips or tricks on rebuilding the 360 let me know. Also
any areas where there may have been problems. Will be waiting for your
replies.
Thanks again for a great list, and wealth of information.

I went to the guy here in Ypsilanti, MI and he acted like there was
no problem no matter what part of the assy I needed. Not sure it
that would apply to the shackle itself but the bolts and bushings
were no problem for my 78 bronco. I have a feeling these things are
pretty standard, like 3" x 5/8 or 4" x 3/4 or something like that.
This is a chain so I imagine they have a main number somewhere. I'll
see if I can find out. This shop simply takes in your vehicle and
replaces whatever parts need fixing and fixes the rest and puts it
all back together. They make their own spring parts out of flat
stock when they don't have the right ones.

Ruenel makes a nice strong wrap/step bumper for electric winches with
brush guard and articles I've seen have had the jack installed on it
but I don't know what kind of look you want. I like them and plan to
build one similar myself as soon as I decide on a winch.

Thanks Dale!


Well there it is in black and white:

Page 31-02-02, fig. 2, 1970 Ford shop manual, "used with shunt type
ammeter" ( a little dashed line that goes from the black wire from the
battery to the BAT terminal on the ignition switch, same points the
ammeter is attached to )

and on page 33-03-06 it says:

"A shunt-type ammeter is used in F-100 through F-350 Cowl-
chassis units, and in F- and B-500 through 750 units. Other
trucks have loop-type ammeters."

So shunt it is!

I guess I get it now?

Has anyone found a source for wiring diagrams? I thought that my
original Ford Shop Manual would have them but it doesn't.

Thanks Dana

Subject: SB 42 and smog checks

I was wondering how the new California law will effect engine swapped
vehicles. Since my engine is a 74 will I still have to get smog checks?
or since my truck is a 70 will I be exempt?

All of us in this situation had better find out before any smog stuff
comes off!

Anyone have any knowledge on this?

Dana

Jan 1998 '73 will be exempt, '74 not until I think the year 2000. As Max
Smart would say "Missed it by that much"!

Miss-read your post. Your truck is exempt.
