I was going to suggest that if no one else did, there can't be very
much water left in there so a qt or so of antifreeze should be enough
since it should gravitate to the lowest part of the block just like
the water did :-)

My back hurts, my teeth may
fall out at any moment, Do they make
4WD Lincolins? With air suspension?

Hello everyone!

Good examples of grills can be found from our sponsor. The cover
of Mac's shows 1948-1972 grills. Should be easy to determine the
year.


Something I learned and thought I'd pass along. I'm new at body work
and painting and respirators. Did you know that the charcoal
cartridge,
once exposed to air, has a 30 day life!! After that it lets all those
chemicals through.(no wonder my head hurts). Safety First.

I do own a '66 F-250 which is registered as a '65. Apparently the truck =
was originally bought late in '65 and was therefore registered as such. =
This is great for me because it makes the truck exempt from California's =
bi-annual smog inspections!

Hey everybody... If your interested in getting a copy of the Red
book let me know. I just called them and found out that the book is
priced at $6.98. And then I found out they want $4.95 for shipping and
handling. But I then found out that there store is only about 15
miles from me ! So I would be willing to pick up a copy for anyone who'd
like one and send it out from the post office here for I'm sure alot
less than the $4.95 they want.

Interesting point, I learned this with Litmus paper too. They sell
you big rolls of the stuff wrapped in foil which doesn't do much to
keep out moisture and the air is actually normally basic which reacts
with the paper to turn it pink (as I recall) but once the reaction
has taken place the paper is stable and useless for further testing.
I bought $27 worth for coolant testing only to have it all ruined in
our very high humidity and our lab people don't even know about this
as they keep theirs lying around in drawers with other chemicals
etc.. What a bummer! I paid this out of my own pocket too :-(

Now we just use a spectrometer to test for the solution concentration
of the synthetic and maintain it that way which didn't work till we
had all the bacteria out of the system since the bacteria caused the
coolant to go acidic rather rapidly so the litmus paper testing
etc...........................
