Sounds like a heavy duty mount. Did you fab the shroud from plastic or
sheet metal?

Nice catch!!!
I have a work truck that I have to push the glass back into the track about
twice a day. Guess this is my warning to get it glued in.

later,

Howdy all!

I am looking to change the power steering box on my truck. A
previous owner used a Ch*vy power unit with a Ford pump. Right now the
pump is mounted low on the front of the engine and the Ford power unit
will sit up on the frame in the same location as the pump. I Ford box
is one out of a 77 F150 4x. Is there any factory brackets that mount
the pump higher on the engine or will I be forced to "improve on the
design"?

I forgot to add that the engine is a FE390, well I guess that info was
in the bottom of my posting but just incase I thought I would add this.

Thanks

Subject: Is it a 65 or 66

I recently purchased an old Ford pick-up the title says its a 65, but the guy
I bought it from says its a 66. It is a military surplus truck (many years
ago) so it is possible there was a mix up at the DMV. Can anyone tell me a
sure way to tell?
This is the info I have:
1. It is an F250
2. It was delivered to the military in Oct 65
3. It has a S6 240
4. It has a 4 speed manual
5. it has a cab mount fuel tank.
6. It is a 2wd

Any answers?

To my knowledge, the 65 and 66 F-250s had basically the same design as the
F-100s... So, this being true, the 65 had a grille with a square criss cross
type pattern, the 66 grille was mare complex, with a harder to explain
pattern... It has a solid row at the top which kinda dips down in the middle
(that part reminds me of a '56 grille) and below that are small rows of a
rectangular pattern..

hope it helps...

I was talking to a friend about putting an electric fan on my '73 F-100
302 and he said he had one and gave it to me. It's a little small for my
truck so I mounted it inside the original fan shroud to increase its cooling
area. That was about a year and a half ago. My truck has never overheated
and lately I have been doing deliveries of around 1000 lb. to Los Angels
about 50 miles one way. When caught in bumper to bumper traffic my temp
gauge will reach the mid way point in normal and runs just over the first
mark in the normal range the rest of the time.
I have been very happy with it so far. One day I would like hook it to a
thermostat to regulate when it comes on. For now a key hot wire is working
just fine. The engine is more responsive, idles smoother and is a lot
quieter. Not to mention my timing lights life expectancy has increased
tenfold.
Good luck!
