I think it was gary that mentioned converting to rear disks and I was
wondering if he or anyone else would have any info on converting a 1969
F350 to rear disks and if so what is involved.Thanks-Bruce Hart-1969

Subject: re:rust

I'm from southern Ontario(lots of snow,salt and sand)and on older
vehicles spraying oil on the underside is a pretty effective cure for
rust not to mention the benefits to removing nuts and bolts,bleeder
srews,etc.Do it twice a year(spring and fall)and it will save the truck
from alot cancer,although nothings beats a winter beater if you hace the
budget.The advice about keeping weep holes open if you go the undercoat
route should be taken as trapped moisture will be the death of your
truck.I prefer oil and its cheaper.Bruce Hart Wellesley,Ontario,Canada

Right now I'm just wishing but I think the 350's came with rear disk
brakes in some applications so the parts should be available new but
not sure. I'd like to use dana 44 parts so I have one set of spares
and one system to learn how to fix but don't know how much work it
will be. Going to take some fabrication for sure :-)

I THINK (!!!) that the later dana 80 rears had the disks, and can be put
onto dana 70 axles. i don't think i have ever seen a dana 70 or smaller
from the factory with disks.

hello all,

if anyone has a healthy pair of the early CJ 429 heads for sale i would
appreciate sending me a personal email. i have been looking for them, and
they seem to be getting harder to find every day. if the price is right,
the SVO aluminum heads would be OK too.

i need MORE HORSEPOWER!!!!!!!

In a message dated 97-12-14 02:23:46 EST, you write:

If you do go to another system, save the old one. I may be interested in
purchasing it for my '66 F100 4x4

Why bolt and not weld isn't welding stronger or does it weaken the frame
inquiring minds need to know
thanks

Subject: 66 Power steering pump

I need some help. I'm planning to install a power steering gear box in
my 66. I already know about shortening the steering column. The problem
I've got is, what type of pump do I need. Will a pump off another model
Ford, ie. Mustang, fill the bill?

Thanks,
Brian
