I'm getting ready to paint my 65 and heard about a relatively new paint
from PPG called Majestic or something like that, it has the clear coat
mixed in with the paint. Has anyone had any experience with this new
stuff?

Subject: Choke repair.

I have a 1980 ford F150 (I know the list only goes to 1979, but I have
more questions about my 65 than my 80, usually). It has a 302 that I
have just rebuilt. Problem is that when I was rebuilding the engine the
heat transfer wire or cord from the exhaust manifold to the choke, broke
at the manifold. I'd rather not purchase a new exhaust manifold and the
metal is too brittle and corroded to use an easy out to remove the
threaded portion of the wire. I need recommendations please. Should I
weld it back on, go to an electric choke. Need some ideas. By the way,
it's the original carb that came on it.
Thanks.

One more thought on this problem, since you say that it has problems kicking over
when it's damp, have you checked to see if the distributor has a crack in it?

I know this is not related to ford trucks, but it could effect all of

charging per minute charges for internet access. It read as follows:

I am writing you this to inform you of a very important matter currently
under
review by the FCC. Your local telephone company has filed a proposal
with the
FCC to impose per minute charges for your internet service. They contend
that
your usage has or will hinder the operation of the telephone network. It
is my
belief that internet usage will diminish if users were required to pay
additional per minute charges. The FCC has created an email box for your

comments, responses must be received by February 13, 1998. Send your
comments
to isp fcc.gov and tell them what you think. Every phone company is in
on this
one, and they are trying to sneak it in just under the wire for
litiagation.
Let everyone you know here this one. Get the e-mail address to everyone
you
can think of.

Subject: Dana update

Well, I got the primer on finally! What a job. The blaster wouldn't
touch the undercoating and grease on there so it had to be
meticulously scraped off with a small screwdriver to get into the
cracks and crevices. Wire brushes didn't get it, sanding disks
didn't get it, brake cleaner didn't get it. Thought I had it clean
but last night when I put the Phosphoric cleaner on it more under
coating showed up so the scraper and blaster came back out, meawhile
the whole thing was rusting away due to the treatment and water mix.
Next components I work on will be brushed, scraped and washed with
gas, thoroughly before I even look at the blaster.

Worked and worked and thought I had all the weld flash off but after
I looked at it this morning I found more. The primer brought out all
the flaws!!

I've decided that this will be my practice piece and I will simply
plan on doing it again some day when I have an excuse to tear it all
the way down again. (which means I may never do it again) In any
case the paint is going on tonight and that will be that. If the
welds break or the paint comes off, at least I have a clue how to do
it right next time :-)

If I must make a point here (and I must, it's my nature) I have to
say that doing this sort of thing in the winter when you expect snow
and it's your only snow truck is not cool. Doing this to your daily
driver is not cool if you don't have a spare, unattached vehicle to
drive while you work on it. I cut some corners because I want it
back on the road. It was a fun project and the concept is still
sound I think but it needs more time to mature which I didn't allow
myself this time but next time you can bet I will not be in a hurry
:-)

I did clean up some casting flash, smooth up some spots and remove
the little sharp tits of casting here and there that snag cleaning
rags etc. and I now know the dana very intimately so it wasn't a
total loss but I'm very dissapointed in my lack of forsight and
planning and that I cut some corners so since it is a new year I will
make a resolution not to do that ever again :-) (and If I actually
manage to keep that resolution I will be able to buy Bill Gates out
some day :-))

To all members:

Before posting items such as this you should check the facts. It took
me less than a minute to locate the FCC's web site and the information
on this (already dead) issue. I consider posts of this nature to be
similar the bogus email virus messages. Our FAQ warns that email virus
message postings will get you unsubscribed. Since this particular item
was not addressed in the FAQ I am issuing this warning to everyone:

Check the facts. Never believe anyone when they tell you to email
someone about issues - this is one of the oldest email bombing
techniques.

Here is the truth, straight from the FCC's site (www.fcc.gov):

URL of information:
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.fcc.gov/Bureaus/Common_Carrier/Factsheets/ispfact.html)
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

In December 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requested
public comment on issues relating to the charges that Internet
Service Providers (ISPs) and similar companies pay to local telephone
companies. On May 7, 1997, the FCC decided to leave the existing rate
structure in place. In other words, the FCC decided not to allow local
telephone companies to impose per-minute access charged on ISPs.

Please Note: There is no open comment period in this proceeding. If you
have recently seen a message on the Internet stating that in response
to a request from local telephone companies, the FCC is requesting comments
to by February 1998, be aware that this information is
inaccurate.

The FCC issued an unrelated public notice, DA 98-2, on January 5, 1998
in connection with a report to Congress on universal service. Pursuant
to the FCC's 1998 appropriations legislation, the Commission must submit
a report by April 10, 1998 on several issues including the legal status
of Internet services under the Telecommunications Act of 1996. Comments
in response to the public notice are due January 20, 1998, and reply
comments are due February 2, 1998. Informal comments may be sent by email
to .

Gary and all:

Thanks for the advise about an obvious question (67-72 body parts
interchagability).

I need to blast and paint the frame. Do you think a needle scaler would be
helpful to have, and use, before blasting. I know undercoating has been
discussed for frames. Wouldn't painting be a good idea first?

I found Gary's posts about blasting and grease, very helpful

Thanks,

I have had a problem with pinging for sometime. Recently I had to
take the truck to a mechanic because it would not pass smog. The guy said
he heard the ping on acceleration, and that it might be a manifold leak
that is causing the problem. I was just trying to find it myself if there
was one. I didn't try the wd-40 yet, so I will climb up and try it
sometime this weekend. By the way the mechanic got the emissions to
cleaned up nicely. Thanks Art Lutz

Subject: 74? Bronco

I found a truck yesterday that has me thinking. I'm not much for the
short wheel base vehicles but those old bronco's are COOL! I found a
guy who has a (i'm guessing here on the year) 1974 Bronco with a 302,
4x4 with a plow. The truck only has 36,000 ORIGINAL miles on it. This
makes me think it's never done anything but plow in the winter and sit
all summer. I didn't get a good look at it yet but the owner said the
rear portion of the frame is really rotted so it would need some work
before being seriously used as a Daily driver or anything. It runs
really good and the guy said he'd give it up for $500. (of coarse i've
been persuading him for the last 2yrs to sell it and now he said he
finally will for $500) The body looks pretty good but I'm sure the
underbody isn't so clean if the frames rotted. What do you guys think?
Would 36,000 miles be almost retired if all those miles are plowing and
then sitting for 9months miles? I would hate to pass up that truck for
that price especially with a working plow.
Let me know what you guys think. Thanx!

What's the address, I'll be right over with my tow bar if it really

Subject: Re: Telephone per minute charges



In my day job, I work for a CLEC (one of those new telcos competing with
"your local telepohone company") and this has been a hot topic for some
time in our industry. There are some real engineering and business issues
behind this problem that seem to justify the per-minute charges (I pay them
on my ISDN lines, even for voice calls) The telephone network was never
designed for an _average_ call time of more than 30 minutes and the
circuit-switched infrastructure is far from the optimum means of connecting
people to a packet-based network.

All that said, I think we should still prohibit the per-minute charges, and
for one very real reason: If the LECs get their way and get paid for the
minutes, the incentive to deploy xDSL and related broadband technologies
(the _right_ way to access the Internet, both for the telco and the
consumer) will disappear. If you think it's taking a long time to get your
ADSL line now, just wait until they stand to lose income by providing you
with one.

So write the FCC but write thoughtfully and not with a knee-jerk response ;>

I don't know what mad me think of this but when did Diesels become
common motor's in light trucks? I don't think I've ever seen a 70's era
Diesel, was this an 80's thing in light trucks or was this always
around?
Ford started offering the 6.9L Navistar (International) in 1983.

Front wheel drive cars use them too but the bearings have preload
spacers in them and the nuts are torqued quite tighly over keyed
washers which prevent any motion of the bearing influencing the nut
on top of having the self locking aspect. Without locking tabs keyed
into the spindle I don't think I'd trust it myself.

Pardon my ignorance but what's a needle scaler?

A friend of mine is a welder and he uses needle scalers to remove welding
slag. The one he has is air powered and looks like some sort of medieval
torture device. It looked like it would work on paint or rust as well as
slag. There is a picture of one at this URL:

Barry,
When I bought the 390 for my truck, it was like that too. I bought a $7
kit at Car Quest which has you redrill the hole in the manifold, then the
kit has a new piece which you pound in the hole. It also comes with a new
heat return pipe to put in too. It all worked quite well and was cheap.

Tyler,
Sunburg is about 1hr. southwest of St. Cloud (about 20 mi. away from
Willmar) in west central MN. I bought the '78 about 1 month ago. The engine was
completely rebuilt 35,000 mi. ago. The tranny seems really good too, as well as
everything else. I still have his receipts, oil change records (every 2000 mi.)
etc. It seems he took really good care of the truck. I'm not sure on price yet.
And it is 2wd.
