Subject: Mr Cotton, Mr Cloud, Electricity question?

Ok, I put the fluke on the service input at the top of the load
center and got 240 - 241v with compressor off. Did the same at
garage with same numbers. With compressor running got 235 - 236 at
service input, same at garage input and at compressor. Much less
than a volt loss from service to compressor while running. At the
service input I saw 230 when starting but the fluke is slow to update
so who knows what the real loss was?

I'm no rocket scientist (apprentice maybe) but my head says that the
loss is occuring outside my house??

I know where compressors get their air, it gets
sucked out of the NEIGHBOR'S electric lines :-)

If someone out there (maybe God?) knows where you can get the old
fashioned complete rebuild kits for power steering boxes let us
know?!?! Every parts house I called said the same thing: "these
boxes are so hard to get right even the rebuilders don't want to do
it, so they charge more to make up for warrantees and they don't sell
enough of the kits so they dropped them"

All I've been able to get is the gasket kits :-(

No, You're O.K. The stuff is good for 175 *continuous* amps.

Where's that NEC locked rotor chart? Ahh, here it is.
Lessee, code G...

Code G motors have a locked rotor (stalled) power draw
of 5.6 - 6.29 KVA per horsepower.
For 7.5 HP thats 42 - 47.175 KVA. Divide by 240volts gives a locked
rotor current of 175-196.6 amps. Just about what Your guy said...
Once the motor starts to spin and gets up even a few RPM, this number
drops very quickly.

>If I figured it right I'd need 1691 volts to push that much amps or
>roughly 8.51 volt drop?? Is that about right?

Err, not quite sure where these numbers come from... 1691 volts??


>Doesn't seem like
>even 9 volts drop would be that noticeable?

Remember that power into a device = V squared / R

For example, a light bulb that draws 100 watts on 120 volts will only
draw 91.8 watts on 115 volts... An 8.2% drop in power.
The light output from an incandescant bulbs decreases quickly with
decreasing power input, and an 8% drop in power is likely to reduce
light output by 10-20%. So Yes, a drop of even 5 volts makes a noticable
difference.

Yep, if the neighbors are losing voltage too, it's an upstream problem
and Your utility company should deal with it.

i have one that has a dana 60 front, and i think it is a dana 80 rear, but
may be a 70. this truck i got for 1500 bucks. it has a 460, 4.10
gears,manual 4-speed, and is basically in very bad shape. i felt that
getting a whole truck for that price was worth it even in the shape it was
in, because a good dana 60 front axle costs that much. so i bought a front
axle and got the rest of the truck for free. the 460 was not OEM.

Good question, I haven't seen them in catalogs lately, but the last time
I bought one, for a '56, I got it from JobLot Automotive, 98-11 211 St,
Queens Village, NY, 718 468-8585. That address and number are from a 1986
catalog (I guess its been a while), so I have no idea if they're still good.
Actually that catalog doesn't have everything together as a kit, but they
have all the pieces. Here's some nostalgia - Steering shaft with worm gear -
$48.95. Sector shaft (with roller) - $91.95!
By the way - I almost just deleted Gary's mail without reading it, because
it still had the original subject line, which had nothing to do with
steering. I suggest we all amend the subject lines to indicate the actual

I have a '73 F100 and the tags are due 1/31/98. I just received my

DMV Monday morning to find out what's going on.
If I have my wires crossed, please let me know. I don't like calling in
a complaint then finding out I'm wrong. It's not that I don't think it will
pass, I'm like everyone else in California, there's just no way to be sure
until they put a sniffer to it. I also know a good smog station that wont
just fail you. It has to be right but if you fail it's not sent to
Sacramento. Either you can let them do what's needed (then you don't pay for
the failure) or you can do the work yourself (and pay for the failure).
If you live in the Rancho Cucamonga area and would like to have the name
of the station send me a private e-mail.
So, what up, Homie's! Am I off base or what. TIA!

Hi group
I've recently come to the conclusion that I need a newer pickup; my
'71 is beginning to show and feel its age.
The "new" one *will* be 4X4; and I was wondering if power steering was
factory standard or an option on the 77-79 F150's.
Is there anything I need to beware of or avoid in 4X4 pickups in that
77-79 age group?

> 77-79 age group?

The June 97 issue of Petersen's 4 Wheel & Off-Road had a whole article on
buying used pickups, 1 section was devoted to '67-'79 Ford 4Xs. Their
conclusion was "The common thought is there's not much that will go wrong
on a Ford pickup." I just bought a 79 F250 with the 400M, C-6 NP205 and so
far it's a great truck.

In general when you're buying a 4X you need to take a close look at the
frame and axles. If it's been "wheeled" hard then it will show in those
areas. Check to see if has been regularly serviced. Not JUST oil changes.
There's alot more fluid in a 4X than a 2X and especially check to see if
the transfer case fluid has been changed. Try to get a part time 4X system
if possible. The NP205 gear drive transfer case is basically indestructible
if there's been fluid kept in it. The NP203 is a chain drive full time
system and not quite as durable.

Also it's a good idea to take it to an area where you can really test out
the 4X. Engage the case in 4 Hi and try to climb a relatively steep dirt
hill if you can find one. This will tell you if both hubs are engaging and
the axles are OK. I did this with mine and found out that the right locking
hub wasn't working right so the guy knocked $100 off the price. (Course all
it needed was a good cleaning and a little grease.) But there was no way to
tell that at the time.

I looked at the truck tonight. It's a supposed 79 with a 75 grill. The
title also says 75, but the guy claims his freind was trying to hide the
truck from his wife. The rear is not a dana 70, but dana 60. The guy
claims Ford went from 2.5 to 3 inch springs in 77 and thats how I can
tell the truck is truly a 79. It does have 3" springs, front and rear.
It does also have a dana 60 front, so I guess it must be a F-350, right.
Truck is a supercab, but has no bed. Al I really want is the dana 60
rear for my 78 Bronco. Eventually, I would like to convert the dana 60
front to coil spring mount for my Bronco.

One other thing, it seems the gear ratio is in the 3.70 range. Did
dana 60's have this gear ratio. He has another dana 60 with the 3.54
ratio I want. I can have the whole truck and extra rear for 1100$.
Truck has non-running 351M, rebuilt C6, and air.

About 10 years ago I bought, from Ford, the above plus bearings etc for a 56 I
had. You never know what they are going to have!

My guess is that since the law doesn't go in to effect till 1/1/98 the computers
are programed to request the cert. Don't waist your time with DMV call an
official California Referee they are very helpful and will know the answer. I
need to call because my 70 has a 74 engine, am I exempt or not? Also if you send
in the reg after the 1/1/98 might make all the difference in the world!


Always request a pre-test before the actual test the ACC 10 minute smog check
place I go to is a pass or don't pay and they do it for free but if you don't
request the per test and you fail due to gross polluter you get to pay for the
test! It's in their fine print.



How could you missed this one:

I hope it made sense!

Deacon,

Im in kinda the same boat. Mine is due 12-16-97, so Im going to put
it under "Non-Op" before hand and then after the new year, register and
then not have to worry about the somg cert. Cops dont mess with expired
tags tell they are over 2 months..

Hopa Hopa Hopa it works.

Yeah, you are basically right. THis is a REALLY easy conversion.
You do, however, need to remove the plastic piece that covers your dash
innards. When you pull the parts from the jukyard, there will be a box
connected to the switch; make certain to TAKE THIS BOX! This is what
electronically makes the intermittant wipers work. VERY IMPORTANT. I did
this conversion to my truck a couple of months ago, and it is GREAT! If
you have any more questins, just give me an email. TTYL.
