Subject: Air Compressor pumps

I'm not Don, but thought I'd interject my thoughts here. I have two
setups on farm trucks. Both are wired/plumbed the same way but on one
I used an old Ford (York, I believe) and on the other I used an old
Chrysler V twin . Both are very good and dependable and have been in
operation for 10plus years. I used an old Hot water heater tank
strapped to the frame and supported by L brackets just in front of the
dual wheels for the tanks. (they are factory tested in excess of 300#
so I'm told, hence the reason for the choice. I pulled the electrical
source from the alternator output pin of the regulator through an
ordinary pressure switch. That way the compressor will not engage when
there is a low voltage situation. I have the popoff valve on the input
line at the tank, and a ball valve and quick disconnect for the air
source. A very neat rig if I did do it myself. I've repaired all sorts
of farm equipment where it brokedown and these installations were the
best time/labor saving things I've ever done.

Good luck.
>Ok, Don, what pump did you use. I have 3 or 4 A/C compressors but I
understand they don't oil very well as air compressors?

Isn't the oil filter and sender right next to the fuel pump on this

Most policies give you either the street value of the vehicle or a
replacement based on the vin equipment list unless you have a special
set value (classic car) policy which is usually very, very much more
expensive :-(

That would work. Do you think that the line comming off the compressor
would take the heat? What is the temp of the Refrigerant after it comes
out of the compressor? Would the compressed air be that much hotter?

I don't have them readily available, though someone on this list may
have. (should have). I know the DOVE heads are just plain old pass
car heads of the pre Smog variety, but I have two (2) sets of them and
am very happy with them for everyday users in Heavy duty applications.
(F350 4X4 & F250 4X4) There was a special # for the Police Engines in
the '68 thru '70 era, and of course the CJ #. I'm told that the CJ's
are not for every day use, but are in demand by the racing circuit.
I'm also led to believe that the Police versions are the best all
around versions, but scarce as hens teeth. I've never owned any of the
CJ's or Police, but I do know for a fact that the CJ Stangs/Torinos of
'69-'71 are damned fast. I also know 1st hand that the Alabama State
Troopers used the Police version and I got caught in my '69 SCJ of 428
variety running straight down I-65 flat and level and also might I add
running the '69 flat out. It had 140mph on the speedo and he caught me
in a damn LTD.
Sleddog should be able to speak up here on the casting #'s.
So much for that. Hope you got a good deal going there on the '59 429.

I found a website where a guy had done a conversion and had a regulator,
pressure switch, etc. and was using it to pressurize a front bumper. He had
pictures and explanations for everything. I seem to remember that he dumped
the compressor oil and used a TFE additive to coat the inside, and said
he'd never had any problems with lubrication. I just can't find that website
again. If I ever do find it or if someone else does, maybe it will get
posted here. By the way, I built a four inch diameter 3/8" wall thickness
bumper for my 77 Bronco that I kept pressurized to 150 psi. It would fill
all four 31x10.50 tires with enough air to get home on. I loved it.

I hate to say it, but I'm afraid you only had insurance for the book value
of the vehicle. Unless the company is informed of your modifications and
they specifically cover it, all they are protecting is the specified
vehicle.

Warning: the same holds true for simple modifications like expensive
aftermarket stereos, cd players, custom paint, probably even improved tires
and wheels. If the company is not made aware of these changes, they have no
reason to expect to reimburse for more than the stock vehicle as it left the
showroom.

I'm no insurance advocate, I think auto insurance in particular is one hell
of a racket. But, a full tank of gas sure is cheaper than getting towed.

how do you keep them lubricated or do they have their own crankcases?

The "M" in 351-M does stand for "Modified". The 351-M is actually a
351-Cleveland "Modified block. It has 351-C heads,distributor,cam,
lifters,fuel pump,oil pump,oil pan,pulleys,brackets etc. The difference is in
the deck height. A 351-C intake manifold will even work on the motor with
spacers that are made buy Wiend. I have this motor in my 79 with a 351-C
manifold with the spacers added. Ford called this engine the 351-Modified in
all their parts books and literature. So,in answer to your question, YES, the
"M" does stand for "Modified.

Subject: Re:351-M Power ? #337

Jim,
The 351-M is deffinitely a torque motor. The combination of
components that you are using sounds good. You might try a bigger cam but
check the specs on one first.Too radical of a cam will only increase your
torque and your vacuum supply will also suffer. There is no substitution for
"Cubic Inches". So a 460 will give you more power,but you have to weigh the
differences in price vs. slightly more top-end power. I would stick with the
351 if this is to be a daily driver. For racing purposes I would go with the
460. With the gear you're running, on the street, top-end power should'nt be
a problem. With my 79 F-250 4x4, I am running 4:10 gears, and a 351-M with
similar components and I can bury the speedometer. I hope this gve you some
insight.

What I used to do was measure it witha tape measure and that wasn't good.
What i did last time worked like a champ. I used a piece of three foot
long 2 inch square pipe and leaned a cement block against it to hold it
against the disk on each side and then used a stiff tape measuer and found
my toe in was 3/16" I adjustd it to 1/16". Later after driving it some I
did the same procedure with the blocks and 2" square pipes held against
the tires and it measured the same 1/16" toe in. That was just to let you
know it worked both ways. After that I had my tires trued and that was
one of my favorite fixes. "I got a million of 'em" ;-)

Most air tools are rated at 90 psi and work well at that pressure if
it's maintained. Mine goes from 120 down to about 40 before it
kicks back on and then I have to wait if I want to really reef on
something til it gets back up. Most shops run 180 at the tank and
regulate it to 110 or 120 in the lines and have compressors capable
of maintaining the pressure at normal volumes of use.

Most tools have rated nCFM npsi and you need more compressor than the
tool by some margin to keep up.

Air sanders need LOTS of air! So do sand blasters. My brother does
signs and has to rent a trailer mounted, gas powered compressor to do
them with a rating of something like 125 CFM 100 psi. This is
roughly the equivelant of 6, two stage 5hp compressors.

I don't think the A/C compressor is going to get any hotter than a
regular air compressor will it? I used copper line from mine to the
tank and direct steel pipe through the garage from the tank and have
had no problems in 25 years or so.

Broncos really are supposed
to have brakes aren't they?

If you can get it in without shearing any bearing metal I should
think that wouldn't be sufficient to cause this problem?? Installing
a cam requires some finnesse so you don't scrape metal off the
bearings either with the installation tool or the cam.

I think the general attitude is " I've got money, I don't need to
pay attention.."

I just got home from a job estimate today and ALMOST had an incident
with a stupid bi.. err, woman in a mercedes. Talking on her cell phone
no less..!
It's a rainy day here and coming home on the freeway this.. "person"
decides she's gonna change lanes into MY lane. She's right beside
my truck and next thing I know she's mostly in my lane. I leaned on the
horn and jumped on the gas. She finally looks up and sees me alongside
her, yanks the steering back to the right, whips all the way across
the road all the way on to the shoulder, gets it kinda sideways and
just WIPES out a freeway signpost. (-:
Thought I was gonna die laughing!
It would have been hysterical to hear what it sounded like to whoever
she was on the phone with!!

Apparently all the idiots are out this week...

Finally went to my P.O.Box today, and low and behold, my stickers
are there!!
Totally cool!! It's too rainy to go out and put one on the truck right
now, but they sure look good on my fridge for now! (-:

Thanks Ken!

Happy motoring,

The serial number F25BEJ82950 tells me the following:
Your truck is an F250 (you all ready knew that), the original engine (B)
was a 300 ci 6 cyl. (evidently someone has replaced the Inline six with
a V8), built in Mahwah NJ, Built in August of 1970.

Hope this helps.
