I went with TSM. I originally ordered the 9" kit, but then I decided
to go with a dana 60 rear and finally installed that kit. Both kits use
custom made caliper brackets, 1/2 or 1 ton Ch*bbie front rotrs and Olds
toranado rear calipers (if you want a praking brake). I also got SS
lines to allow caliper removal. I would recommend getting brackets and
from TSM and getting the rest of the parts locally. TSM will tell you
exactly which parts to get. I know is sucks to have ch*bbie parts on
your rig, but as mentioned, at least you could find a part out in the
middle of no-where and axle shafts are stock. The calipers brackets are
1/4 inch steel plate and will definately never break. I still have a
mushy pedal, but at least I can lock up the rear brakes again. I have 38
inch tires and the brakes were getting weak. I have also heard that the
brake booster/master cyl from a 79, F350, 2WD will bolt up to that year
Bronco/F-150. This combo supposedly gives a much shorter stroke
(although more pressure needed) for braking. =20

> One more thing:

valve.=20

I didn't seem to need one, and I have bigger disk brakes out back than
in the front at this point. Probably because I need all the brakes I
can get. Maybe with smaller tires it might be a problem.=20

>And remove the back check valve from your master cylinder (
> easier said then done=20

I was told by TSM to leave this in with the toranado calipers as they
have had complaints about the calipers not being adsjusted up enough to
the rotors. Part of this problem is keeping E-brake adjusted up and
using it as GM's rear calipers freeze up consistantly if E-brake is not
used. The residual 10 lbs of pressure helps keep the pads adjusted up,
supposedly. =20

Thanks to all who ans my post about carb heat and the JCW front coil

I agree, but who makes all Ford, bolt on, rear disc kits for a dana
60. I also haven't seen any bolt on kits using Ford parts for a 9". Who
makes these??

Was wandering around the car lots this morning and found a 63 custom cab for $
875. Body and interior are in fair shape. Popped the hood on it and it has a
V8. The engine appears to be different than a FE. Dist is in back of the air
breather at an angle and there is an exhaust cross over tube on the top front
of the engine. Is this possibly a 292 V8? Looks to be original and the truck
has not been modified in any way that I can see. Any ideas on the engine and
the price? Thanks. Mike B.

Jeff, it's not quite that easy the only way to know for sure if your
block can be punched out that far is to take it down and have it sonic
checked at a reputable rebuilder some will bore that far and some won't .

The crank is another sticking point while their were a lot 410's and
428's built {they used the same crank } the crank's are getting harder to
find and more expensive. And no Ford dosen't carry them any more, even if
they did it would probably cost prohibitive
to buy one from them.
I would check with a local rebuilder and see if he might locate one for
you.
I hope this helps
Mark.

Ok guy's....I tried a front sump pan this weekend on my 460. This
different pan still does not allow the engine to fit the cross member.
Is it maybe my motor mounts ? They are the L&L conversion mounts to fit
a '79 f150. They are basically flat to the block. Is there a car type
mount I should be using ? Do the car type or stock truck type stick out
farther from the block ? The ones I'm using are only about
2" from the side of the block...I need about 4" to clear the oil pan.
If anyone has a pair they could measure for me it would be a great help
as I now am not sure what to do. Possibly custom make a new cross member
to fit.

Thanks...Brian

If it is clean and runs well, I'll take 10! I would turn around and
sell 9 of em for $1200 *g*

It sounds like the 292 to me.

There should be a tag on the carb if it is the stock unit and hasn't
been played with.

For the rear end the sure way is to pop the rear cover and look for a
set of numbers on the ring gear. next best would be to look at the tag
on the rear cover and last would be to count the number of turns of the
pinoin to the wheels.

The most positive way to be sure is to look at the ring gear and since
it is a 76 it is mostlikely time to change the gear lube.

Are we fitting this into a 4x4 or a 2 wheel drive. I believe for a 4x
you will need to get the rear sump oil pan. There is an 8 qt available
but I'm not sure who makes it.

Yep. A 4bbl is going to have four smaller venturis (venturae?) as
opposed to a 2bbl's two larger pipes. Those smaller holes make for better
throttle response and better mixing of the air-fuel mixture, improving
performance. If you go with a spread-bore carb (small primaries and
bigger secondaries) that effect is amplified because you've got two huge
venturae (hehe) that only open up at higher RPM's.
