I personally would never, ever use a motor flush inside the engine
for the above reasons. When you replace a pump or bearings or do any
major work on a 335 series engine (and perhaps any other) ALWAYS
CHANGE THE PICKUP TUBE AND SCREEN, don't just clean them. Of all
engines I've encountered the 335 series will probably benifit most
from an oil cooler. The reason I say that is because I've seen
several coated with a thick layer of baked on varnish inside the
engine, especially in the pickup tube. This breaks loose and gets
into everything ruining bearings, cranks etc.. My theory is that
this particular engine has a heat sinking problem and the oil gets
the brunt of the abuse which is what produces the varnish. The
reason is apparently lack of sufficient heat transfer from the block
and heads to the coolant so the metal of the engine stays hotter
causing this phenomina. It also has a massive crank which stores a
lot of heat.

Unless I were continuously driving in Death Valley at 120+ degrees I
would never use 20w50 in anything except perhaps a heavy truck diesel
and I'm not even sure that's appropriate. New vehicles all come with
5w30 recommendation including trucks. The reason is that the oil has
to be thin enough to get into all the cracks and crannys in the
engine with sufficient volume to cool and lubricate the parts.
Cooling is the oil's second most important function and it can't do
it if it isn't flowing.

The proper way to get oil pressure is to use the thinner oil, blue
print the engine's bearings so the clearances will promote good
pressure and then keep it changed and filtered. If it gets sludged
up (and it never should if you change the oil), take it apart and
clean it properly and then re-clearance every thing when you put it
back together. As I said, a cooler may help the 335 series a lot as
well.

Alan,

IMO if you are really losing oil pressure you will hear the difference in
the motor, clanking-n-banging and other bad noises. I drive a '75 F-350
company truck w/460. At highway speeds the oil pressure goes to zero on the
gauge, no bad noises. We've been driving it this way for at least three
years as my boss it too tight to spend a dime on this truck he doesn't have
to. I hope your problem is similar. A new sending unit is alot cheaper and
easier than oil pumps, bearings, etc.
Good luck with whatever you find!

I forgot what year we're taling about but the 76 - 79's have
removable rubber seals around the windshield and you don't cut them
they peel out and get reinstalled just like van side windows of the
mid 70's. There's no sealer I'm aware of in this case, it's not
needed :-) I has one replace in my drive way by a pro (under
insurance) and it took him all of about 15 minutes.

Swept volume is calculated with stroke and bore ussing this formula:

V = Pi * r^2 * H where V is the volume, Pi = 3.1416, r is the radius
of the bore or 2.1950 with 0.030 over bore since stock bore is 4.360
and H is the stroke or 3.850 as I recall (maybe 3.875?) so we get 466
or so.

Have someone drive behind you, look for black smoke when you

If you have a lean condition and your fuel pump/filter are OK, look

Just got the 460 in my '75 F-250 4x4 Highboy. What a rush!! If anyone is
considering a 460 swap - DO IT!! It is the only truck I have ever riden in
that really throws you back in the seat. Can you tell I have a huge grin
on my face?

Anyway, I need some help with few things before I can do any 4 wheeling.

1. I need to replace the kingpin assembly and bearings on both sides of
my truck. One wheel (pass. side) is ready to fall off. I have never done
this before, any suggestions? Can't find much for help in my Haynes
manual. (imagine that!).

2. Can't read the Ford info. on the door jam, any idea what wheel
bearings I need, can't tell if the front axle is rated for 3000 lbs. or
3500 lbs.?

3. I have the 203 transfer case and auto locking hubs, since I am tearing
the front end apart, should I buy a kit to put locking hubs on? Or the kit
to change the transfer case? Or both?

4. (and lastly) I have a clutch fan on my 460, but the clutch is shot.
Should I replace the clutch or buy a new fan? Do I really need a clutch
fan? Anybody have one laying around they want to get rid off?

Thank you for all your help, in advance, and in the past!!

Not sure about the 75 but if it's a HD Dana 44 it has trunion
bearings or ball joints. Ball joints are a lot of work but fairly
easy to figure out as you go. Can't help you with the trunions,
sorry. Give us a yell if you need more info but take a look and try
to determine which you have.

If you do one you should do the other since you can't run it with
axles unlocked with full time 203 anyway so there would be no
advantage.

Clutchs cost about $50 for standard and $75 for police (Hd). I
recommend you get one. Unless the fan is bent you can re-use it. :-)

I used to work on a 89 E350 and the way the windshields mount in those

Subject: Re: Sudden loss of oil pressure

I had a thought that would act as you described regarding oil pressure
loss.

If for some reason the oil might be draining too slowly back to the oil
pan. Under this condition the engine would have oil pressure for a while
then suddenly lose pressure, you shut off the engine and the oil has
time to drain back, start it up and the whole process starts all over
again! At low engine speeds there may be just enough time for the oil to
get back to the pan but at higher speeds maybe not?

Good luck

I like the looks of the chrome but am afraid when I replace it, it will

67-72 models. Remember what every street rodder did a few years ago?
Took all the chrome off their 53-54-55-56 F-100's and tossed it. Now
they can't find it!! Hang on to the chrome incase you want to restore
it to factory specs. My 71 has the chrome and I intend to replace the

I can't remember off the top of my head if the front end is open or
closed knuckle in 75. Anyway if it is the open knuckle the ball-joints
are real easy to understand and a pain to get out and back in. I remove
the knuckle and let the auto parts place press out and in the new ball
joints. If it is the closed knuckle you will have to make sure you get
the preload on the trunion bearing right or they will self destruct
after a couple of turns.

Go ahead and get the locking hubs and put them on now. You can drive
the truck with the front hubs unlocked. Just put the t-case into
HI-LOCK. This will lock the center diff and away you go. As time and
money permits get the part-time kit for the 203. From what I have seen
it is realy easy to do.

If you currently have the clutch fan I would go back to that. You could
change to a direct drive fan (what I got)or get rid of the fan and go
electric ( what I'm looking into).

Are you talking about the chrome trim that "covers" the rubber seal or the
chrome "locking strips" that fit into the seal? As I recall they are two
different seals. As far as a look goes. if you have a lot of chrome on the
truck I would go for the wider chrome cover try trim. If you have very
little chrome or black mirrors, bumper etc.. then go for one with just the
locking strips or not chrome at all. That's my $.02

Actually, it's a 466. The stock bore and stroke for a 460 is 4.36 x 3.85.
4.36 is the piston/bore size. Enter .030 for the piston oversize. (thirty
thousandths).
