All the information should be on the Data plate that is on the side of
the transmission. Other than that I am not sure where to look.

Subject: A riddle concerning some of the codes for my 74 F250, Any Takers?

Vin Number is as follows: F25MRU81770

I translate this to be F25 = F250
M = 390CI V8 4BBL 215HP
R = Assembled in San Jose, CA
U81770 = Consecutive Unit Number

Wheel Base = 133 = 133 inch Wheel Base

Color = MU = Wimbledon White with Lime Stone Green Metallic
(It tends to grow on you after a while)

Type = F253 = Model F253, GVW 8100 Pounds

Now this is where I am having trouble.

Body = P4 P = Trim Code - Avocado
4 = Body Type - Style side Pick
Does anyone else read it this way?

Trans = G = Automatic (Lots of help here)
Does anyone else come up with something different?

Axle = 24J = Couldn't find anything for this code, can anyone else.

G.V.W. = 8100 = Gross Vehicle Weight = 8100 Pounds

DSO = 75 = Phoenix District

If anybody can help with the Body, Trans, and Axle Codes I would Appreciate
it.

Thanks!

What about sticking two cats on the duel system you have now? Then go to
a different shop for smog check.


By the way, always ask for a pretest before you go for the real one.
That way the smog police won't be in your face if it fails!

Also the seller was responsible to clear up the smog issue before he
sold it to you. If the seller didn't inform you about the smog control
problems you my be able to recoup some costs in small claims court. (I
am no lawyer but you may have some rights here )

See the following site:
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://webgarage.com/ci/smog2.htm#require

It states the following:

"The seller must provide the buyer with a Smog Check certificate or VIR
indicating compliance prior to the transfer of
ownership. Ownership cannot be transferred if the vehicle has a Gross
Polluter hold on it, or has been issued a waiver or
economic hardship extension, unless all repairs have been made, and a
certificate of compliance is issued. Prior to purchase,
prospective buyers are advised to ask the seller for the current
certificate, if available, and/or the VIR. "


Here are some more smog check sites:

this 332 is the FE block, but rather the old 1952 up Lincoln OHV. The FE

THIS BOOK ONLY LISTS UP TO 65 FOR TRUCKS, so probably the housing
interchanges for a longer period of time.

Hollanders has a lot of inconsistancies, thats why the listings look a
little weird.

Subject: Re: Smoggy the Weasel and Pipe Size

Fist off thanks to everyone for their opinion on my exhaust set up. It's
great to see how each person tunes their truck via the exhaust to make it
just the way they like it. As for Sleddog, SHAME SHAME, on you ;-)
Actually I already thought of it but, a few recycles that I called wont
sell a cat. Seems to be illegal around hear. Don't think it is worth the
chance. In any case I will take all your advises and get the best free
flowing cat that I can afford. The only reading that was even close to the
limit was the CO level. So an oxygenating Cat should make that one even
lower. If the other reading change a little it won't matter because I had
a lot of room before I would get even close to the limits. If I can afford
all the parts I want I plan to go with 2.25" or 2.5" pipe from the stock
manifold to the cat. Then run 3" the rest of the way. Should sound pretty
good with the flowmaster big block muffler in it.

One more question. With a Crew Cab would you all exit in front or behind
the rear passenger side wheel? The only problem with going in front that I
can think of is it would be a little close to the rear passenger door?
Wouldn't want anyone to get burned!! Would this set up be much louder than
going out behind the rear wheel? Seems to me that it should flow a little
better by avoiding the bends for the axle clearance. Also seems that just
after the axle is where they rust out first. May make the system last a
little longer. What do ya think?!?

Ack! Only 330 and 405 ft lbs on most? That will never do!

Looks like the 550 series is the only useful one for FE.
The ratios on the 1551 don't look to good for my tastes.
Maybe a 1558 or 1557 with a fairly tall (3.0?) rear axle.?
Not sure I like the 1557 ratios that well either. Hmmm, choices
are quickly getting limited...

Hi Gang!
Well I drove out to the Valley and met Marv! A list member and very cool
person. I am almost over saying "As if" and "Oh my God" it takes a while for
the Valley to where off! :) He turned me on to a set of springs off his
very cool '70 F250.

Gary, he installed the whole 9" rear end from a Lincoln and is using air
suspension. A nice set-up indeed! Hopefully he will give us the details on
the truck. (Sorry Marv I think this is called "on the spot"). Marv is a
knowledgeable and interesting Bro. I hope we get together again. If you need
a hand with any of your projects just drop me a line and I'll be there, late
but I'll be there! (I was suppose to be there at 10am, I think I showed up
at a casual 12:30)

I was looking at my trucks springs and the difference is like night and
day. I can't wait to see how it handles. I'll do it Monday when my wife is
at work and I can have the driveway. Not that it's a problem but she still
remembers the one day header installation that turned into and engine
rebuild. Maybe I didn't need to park in the middle but that's where I like
to work. That way I can tell if I'm leaking something or it's a stain from
where I worked on something! :)
I'll update as it happens. Until then I'll just ramble and offer
miss-information to peoples questions.
Later!

When I had my exhaust done, they told me a 302 with duel exhaust, I
wouldn't get any realistic advantage having a balance tube. I don't think my
engine could flow any better than what it does.
A balance tube does more than equalize pressure. It's one of those
soundwave, ying yang things. I'm still a little froggie about the whole
thing (Rib bib). Sorry I'm an opener, it's time for the clean-up crew to
come in and clean this mess up!
