Cats need air to operate, something has to get to them so if you have
a cat you probably have some kind of means to push air into it or
allow it to suck air from somewhere.

i have had good luck with Borla mufflers. they have a good warrenty
(million mile!) , have a great sound and look nice, and have fared well in
tests i have seen in Hot Rod type magazines. i can'tcomment on performance
gains as the last set i replaced i did away with the whole exhaust system -
i am running the borla's right on the headers. in another truck (both
460's) i replaced glass packs and about 2 ft. of pipe with the same borlas
and other than a much better sound didn't notice any performance increase.
but, it would be hard to feel a few extra hp on a motor already putting
out quite a bit.

the flowmasters i have seen, sound very good, quite untill the loud pedal
is smashed, and the owners seemed happy with them. from what i have seen
though, borla has the best quality - all stainless and a million mile
warrenty.

Exactly why I love my '76 so much!! No cat, No EGR, No smog pump, No
cannister, NO NUTIN'!! And IT'S STOCK -- Cherry original!! I love
owning a truck sold for Texas and driving it in California. I just wish
that I could convince Smoggy that since it NEVER had any
$! )*&#^%!( &#%$ #*$((( %#$$ ^ smog equipment that I won't be defeating
anything by adding aftermarket parts. Weasle boy still says I can't put
dual pipes on it but I could have headers. Go figure.

You may want to check a factory service manual and see if cats were
available for your truck. I know on a '76 the exhaust system was dual
pipes back to the muffler for a 460 then a single tail pipe out to the
end. The pipes were pretty large and the muffler was ENORMOUS!! If you
could get a smog shop to mandril bend (smooth constant radius with no
kinks) a setup similar to the stock setup, use a stock muffler and
large diameter pipes, it may flow pretty freely. Any other opinions on
this??

Subject: Smoggy the Weasel and Pipe Size

Well, had to do the annual smog check today. I thought I may have
problems
before I got there so I was expecting the worst. I just got my '79 F250
Crew Cab about six months ago and the guy I bought it from was real
evasive
about the smog check. I thought how bad could it be? It has current
tabs
on it. I have been doing some tuning work and have many of the ignition
parts replace that were in terrible shape when I bought the truck. I
pulled in and the first thing the test tells me is that I need to go in
side to the office. Not a good sign. Seems it failed last year and was
working on some kind of extension. Got the paper work and pulled back
around to have the test. Technician looks for gas caps. That checks
OK.
Looks at the sniff test results. That PASSED. I'm thinking this is
great!
I passed! Then the little weasel gets out his stupid little mirror and
said. You don't have a cat. You failed. Go back to the office.
Crap!!
Now I have about thirty days to get my rusty old dual exhaust converted
back over to a single cat system in order to met the spec book
requirements. The hard part to swallow is that even with not having
checked the timing yet and a carb that NEEDS a rebuild I past the
sniffer
test. So What Do I Need This Stupid Cat For Anyway!!
The guy in the office said, because it is supposed to have one. Well
la-de-da! Guess I have to start that exhaust project about three months
sooner than I wanted. Won't the wife be just THRILLED.

By the way, anybody know what the stock pipe size on a '79 F250 Crew Cab
with a 460 is??

I was thinking about running 2" to the converter and then 2.5" the rest
of
the way. Think that will breath well enough with just one muffler and
tail
pipe for the 460?
Later.

I've had good luck applying downward pressure on the rotor while a
friend 'bumped' the starter a couple of times. Be sure you have the
rotor pointed to the same location clockwise as it was when you removed
the old one, or that you have set #1 on TDC and have the rotor pointed
to #1 (when the cap is on) otherwise you are going to be out of time.
Like someone else pointed out - - Why did it break?? Oil pump froze
up -- maybe. Hope not.

Good luck.

It's for setting your cam to a higher degree than some care to take. I
of course have never done it and should just shut-up sit back and learn!

The old Ford fail-safe Trick! If the oil pump don't turn, engine don't run.
Azie's got a point! Did you check to see if the oil pump turns?

There is no short answer to your question, rather than try to explain
cam degreeing try going to www.compcam.com. They have a very good page
on explaining things about cams etc. they also have a very good program
you can download that gives you info on what kind of cam you need for
different applications.

Hope this helps.

I believe the spring perches are the same between the F-150 and the F-250.
Get a rear assembly, perches, springs, axle, drive tube and wheels. If
there are overload springs and perches get them also as the holes are ready
in most frames.

The front may be a little different as I am used to 4 wheel axles. But I
think all you need is the springs and the outer wheel assemblies.
