It's getting about time to tear apart my '78 F150 to start putting
the body on my '75. It has a 302 and C-4 in it that are for sale (also
maybe other misc. parts: 9" rear, grill, gas tank, steering, hubcaps,
etc). The 302 has 35,000 on complete rebuild, still have receipts and
oil change records. Runs real good. The C-4 also seems to be real
good. I've only had this truck for a couple months, and everything
seems good. It can still be driven. Contact me directly if interested.

'75 F250 4x4 - down to bare frame, ready for the 460! (just waiting for
engine mounts!!!!)
'78 F150 302, C-4
and temporarily- '77 F250 4x4 - it's got the 4-speed, t-case, front
axle, for my '75.
From the junkyard it came, and to the junkyard it shall return.

Does your 77 have a rear-mounted gas tank?

Just curious-mine has a cab tank, but I have the fuel door
on the drivers side, behind the wheel well, but no filler neck
or tank.

It depends, how new are your valve springs?? What cam is in it??
How much oil pressure does it have?? What carb/intake combo is
on it??

You could drive up to Canada, as far as I'm aware, they didn't have the same
knee-jerk reaction the yoo-ess had to R12 doing a number on the O-zone layer.

Well I will be off to Maryland again tomorrow (sunday) to get the F500.
Myself and a friend are going with his trailer and a 3/4 ton Chubby to
pull it back. I know it will be tiring but we are going to do it all in
one day. Five hours up and five hours back, can't wait! I will take some
pix and post it on my site next week.

Thanks Ken!
Steve did the wiring diagrams and the text (The hard part) and I
designed the page (The easy part). Dana had a hand in it too. This time
Dana was quality control (The part no one wants to do, but needs to be
done). Thanks Dana, It's cool having someone pickup the mistakes before
going public.
Working with Steve and Dana on this project was fun. I would enjoy
doing other projects with these guys! With a little encouragement from
others we may be able to talk them into it!

1) Ammeter repair for the Ford phantom ammeter

2) Duraspark upgrade

3) Intermediate windshield wiper switch

Just to name a few.

As Steve said, I too would love to see a link on FTE site. It would
be the icing on the cake! Thanks Ken!

I have a 1971 ford truck and the wipers only work on hi. I have replaced
the wiper switch but the problem is still there. Is the
motor a 2 speed or 1. Kenny

I'm almost 16, and as a reader of this forum[my dad owns the '65 F250 4x4],
reading about all the trucks people are enjoying, and driving my dad's
truck, it makes me want to fix up my own truck. The main problem is rust;
the front floor pans, the cab mounts, cab crossmember, and it also has some
rust in the cab corners, aside from that, it is pretty much rust free. It is
a '67 F-100. It was originally a 240I6/3-spd 2WD. It now sports a 390/C-6,
courtesy of a '69 Galaxie. It still has the original suspension and brakes
that are, aside from the front suspension, worn out from years of work. My
questions are:
About how much would it cost to fix this properly, and how were the
floorpans of these trucks originally put together?
With the 3.73 gears and the 390, this truck can accelerate with a Z28, but
it has terrible economy and top speed. What gears would be a good
compromise between acceleration and highway cruising and fuel economy? Also
when my dad had to drive this truck in the snow and ice, he said it was
awful. Any suggestions on how to help this and traction when driving on the
street would be greatly appreciated.
Since it was a 240, it has the small drums and small springs, it doesn't
drive or stop right. I would like to put front discs and springs about like
on a big-block truck. What parts would be needed to do this?
I also am curious about this trucks history. It has absolutely no options.
How many were built like this?

My '71 has a 2 speed motor. If the switch is good, You likely have
a bum motor. I know some Ford wiper motors are a "3 brush"
design, with 1 of the 3 brushes on the armature being for the low speed
and 1 for the high speed. Perhaps Your brushes are getting short and the....
