Subject: Rack and Pinion steering for 63 F100

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for rack and pinion steering
and steering column combo. The front axle will remain stock but we have
installed a 302. It will be a great help to me if anyone has an answer.
Also visit my webpage at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://members.aol.com/clssicford/index.html and
tell me what you think about my truck. Sorry if the pictures are blurry.

Subject: Re: Spring location on rear drum brakes

Thanks everyone. I have the truck on the road again. It's been an good
weekend
for truck information. I found out the rear axle is from a 72' F350. That
explains
the spring information being incorrect for a 64'.

Originally my truck was a 64' F100. But I definitely have a 1 ton rear axle
and front
suspension as well because I have dual piston calipers up front. Why would
anybody
put 1 ton suspension on a shortbox?

Anyway I got the brake hardware kit from my local autoparts store, a Ford
enthusiast
there help me to identify the rear axle. So I pulled all the brake hardware
out cleaned
up the back plates and painted them. Put all the new hardware on including
the new
self adjusting cables which go down to the adjuster. There is a problem
there I am
missing the little piece of metal which connects the adjuster to the cable.
Time to
hit th junk yards.

I also got my little red book yesterday. Now I know alot more tidbits about
my truck.
It was a 64 built in September. Therefore it as a 65' grill and emblems on
the fender
instead of the hood. It has parking lights on the grill at the same level
as the FORD
emblem. This is also a change in 65.

Thanks for everyone's help, Jason.

Subject: Wiring Diagrams

Dana,

Haynes 73-79 Ford Pickup & Bronco manual has wiring diagrams. Hard to
follow because of fine lines and poor quality, but the info is there if you
look long enough! Paid $17 for mine. Not the best manual but better than
nothing. I'm still looking for a factory service manual for my '79 F-150.

Good Luck

Subject: Re: Header for a 360

After market Headers should be the same for a, 352, 360, 390, 428 etc. The
Hooker Super competition headers on my 390 and 428 FE have the 14 hole
exhaust bolt pattern so they will fit any standard FE head and the 390 GT
and 428 Cobra Jet head as well.
If you are interested I have a set of factory cast iron headers for an FE
Ford. They were original equipment on 406 and 427 Galaxies of 60-64. I
think they would work in an older truck.

Ben,

You will find that we all have things rattling around in our heads.
some just have more than others :)

It will depend on the year of the TTB axle or are you talking about a 97
IFS system? Why would you want to change from 1/2 ton to 1/2 ton on the
front end? I could see putting a live axle in place of the TTB or
changing the 1/2 ton TTB to a 3/4 ton with hubs and rotors. any way
76-86 should interchange from the spindle out. Remember the "should"
Look at the parts an do a comparison just to make sure. All the
spindles that I have seen are attached with 5 studs all in the same
pattern. The caliper mount should stay and the hub simply is attached
to the spidle so if the spindle will work so should the hub.

Shake your head a little and share some more information with us on what
you are doing.

k,

You will just need a bellhousing for a 351W. The autos all have the
bellhousing built in and so does the 5 speed so all that will be left is
the housing for the 3 speeds and 4 speeds. You could use the
bellhousing from the 300-6, 302(later model) 351W or 351C. There are so
many 300-6 with three and four speed tranys 2 and 4 wheel drive that one
should be easy to find.

Need more?

Subject: Re: Plugs and Carbs

All this talk about carbs and no one has mentioned the Autolite 4100 4v. I
bought one from a junkyard for $50.00 and rebuilt it with a kit from NAPA for
around $20.00. I have not used it yet but I intend to put it on my '72 351C
HO in place ot the Motorcraft Spreadbore that came stock.

I have read about this carb at the Pony Carburators web site (ponycarbs.com)
and Mustang Monthly Magazine. They say that the unique fuel delivery venturi
atomizes gas closer to the vapor state than any other carb. It is suppse to
be the closest thing to fuel injection you can get in carb form. It is
simple, reliable and was used on Fords from the late '50s to early '70s. Only
two venturi sizes were made, around 450 cfm for small blocks and 600 cfm for
big blocks (I got mine off a ''65 Galaxy with a 390.) Since I have not yet
used this carb yet I hope the hype is true. Right now I have to rely on what
"they" say.

Off to buy a flame suit.

James
I also need this part but I figured new bushing could be pressed in place. To
respond to a few questons about this setup:

*The bushings are bronze at the spring eyes and the shackle bracket.
*F100 parts will not work since the parts are smaller and lighter duty
(stamped steel vs cast iron shackles.)
*Dennis Carpenter does not have it. I grew up in Charlotte NC where DC is
located, Live in Raleigh now about three hours away. Visiting my parents in
Charlotte a few weeks ago and stopped in to take a look around. What a place!
No bushing though.

I will try to call spring shops in town. Did not think ot that. Thanks.

Also this axle uses six lug rims instead of the later eight lug. Anyone have
some six lug rims lying around they want to get rid of?
