You should try a local driveline shop...or 4wheel drive repair shop. If
you can find someone who handles Dana/Spicer, it will be much much
cheaper..

67 F250 352V8 C4 Trans. Can anyone advise me on a problem I have when
first warming up my truck, Trans won't shift until about 25mins of
wasting gas and time!! I've tried starting out in 2nd gear and shifting
into drive with no luck. She runs fine when all warmed up. I don't mind
a little foreplay, but after a 1/2 hr...... well, I'm only human! I want
to get going!! By the way, trans has 140,000miles+ and as far as I can
tell has never been out of the truck.
Also, I am currently replacing the shift collar and lever,(still waiting
on the lever) and was wondering if there is any type of adjustments I
will have to make to the shift rod that is linked to the trans.?? I,m
hoping just to put the collar, turn signal unit and the lever back
together and be all set.
Any advise or info will be greatly appreciated!!!!!!

John,
I had the same problem with my Highboy. I turned out I was low on fluid.
After I topped it off, it works great. Also remember to check it the right
way. On mine, it has to be in park with engine idling. Hope that helps.

also, before checking, move through all gears, then put in park. this may
make no difference in the case of taking 1/2 hour to engage a gear!

oh, my "other" brand '94 truck (no, not a ch*vy either!) takes a while to
move - the factory knows of the problem. the torque converter drains after
sitting for even half a day or so. extremely annoying.

If it makes anyone feel any better. The only dana 60's that can adapt
to the rear disk brakes are 72-79 (possibly to 84) Ford dana 60's.
Supposedly, the Ford rears are the only dana 60's that have the brake
drum mounted to back of hub. These are the only one's with the correct
offset. Anyway, if a Ch*bbie dude wants rear disk brakes he would have
to use a whole Ford rear :-)

Subject: Bed covers/liners?

I was wondering if anyone had any info on a bed cover or liner for my '64
F-100 longbed? It had a cover with snaps, but I did away with it. Is there a
cover that will fit and be removable and install without putting many holes in
my sheetmetal?
If not, what about a bedliner? Does anybody know if there are liners that will
fit my bed? The prices need to be reasonable, since I do need gas money. :)

Any input would be very helpful.

Thanks,

Scott:

I was looking at the truckworld website, and linked on to the bedcoating ad
at:

www.truckworld.com/cote-l/

This is a liquid bedliner that can be brushed or sprayed on. I recently saw
it on a '97 D**ge truck. It was great. He has hauled rocks, etc, on it, no
prob.
It's non-slip, and hard as a rock. I'm putting it on my replacement bed,
when I get it.
Surface prep. is the most critical thing, though.

Let's get real here. Lots of the brakes and/or parts of brakes in american
cars & trucks were/are made by a few OEMs anyway.

Does putting a Dana 60 or a set of Bendix calipers on instead of whatever
was in it when you got it make your truck any less blue?

I don't know about the dana 60 but the I am designing a kit for my 9" using
lincoln calipers and rotors out of a 82 to 92 lincoln---so far so good on
adaptions just got to design a caliper mount and route the emergency brake
cable--curry has a couple of kits available for the 9" and I think for a
dana or two.

Yep, this engine is a 292 or one of the other displacements offered in
the
same design. This design was introduced as a 239 for Fords and as a 256
for
Mercury's in 1954. Other displacements were 272, 292 and 312. The V8
offered in 1963 pickups was the 292. The angled distributor in the back
and
the exhaust crossover up front are features unique to this class of Ford
engines.

Tom Shay 1979 Bronco, 1978 F-100
were offered with 292

On my 70 there seems to be at least 4 or more inches between engine
mount on block and to cross member. also there is at least an inch or
two between the front sump pan and cross member. There is a rectangular
cup shaped bracket that mounts to the engine and a single bolt that goes
through it to hold the rubber mount to the engine side of the mount.
then there is a similar part on the cross member but rotated 90 degs
with a single bolt also.

OK, I'll bite. Why would it make a difference? I say parts is parts. If
a person wants to keep the bloodline pure (Ve don't burn crosses here)
that's their right. But if a person wants to have a dependable daily driver....
