Hey everyone
Just thought I would pass on a parts truck to everyone else on the list, I
just bought a 76 2x4 302/c4 truck for parts. No rust to speak of, and I am
only keeping the rear so the rest is up for grabs if anyone needs stuff.
Don't have the truck in the yard yet so Ill get you other details later.

Subject: 65 4x4 Restoration?

Ballinger,

Probably get in trouble here, but I found that updating to newer parts really
made the truck a lot more driveable. In particular, power steering and power
brakes. Lucky you found a front axle with tight knuckle bearings. I don't know
exactly which style your knuckle bearings are, but the stock units in my 69
F-100 4x4 were really pretty bad....I don't know how many sets I went through
(of course I had a big bumper winch on the front at the time). Anyway, I put
in a 74 front axle which had the much-better pressed in knuckle joints and all
of these problems disappered.

I guess what I'm saying is that if you drive the rig all the time, then
updating really makes a big difference. If its going to sit most of the time,
maybe the original restoration would be best....

Sounds like a fun project, good luck!

Expert, no but I just looked at mine to tell the junkyard guy what to
look for in his tranny pile for a spare and both sides of the case
have a very neat casting time and what looks like a serial number
embossed into them. The only clue is is a 435 is in the aluminum tag
on the PTO cover, similar to the Diff tags which has the number 435
in the lower right corner along with part numbers etc. which may help
determine it's vintage?

I wanted to just use spade lugs, but headlight lugs are an odd
size. Bigger than a 1/4" lug, but smaller than a 3/8" lug. It must
be 5/16" or 8mm or something silly.
I've got a rather extensive collection of crimp lugs but couldn't

I think the restriction is causes easily overcomes any "theoretical"
improvement in atomization which is undoubtedly why you don't hear
about it in legitimate books on the subject. As I said to remove the
restriction you would also have to slow down the column at precisely
the spot it needs to ge even faster which does several things
including increase pressure and we all know what happens when you
increase pressure in air which contains liquid droplets right? You
know, close up the holes between the air molecules and squeeze out
the droplets.............

He just lost my respect. I saw his pic in a Prolong ad!? Go figure.

Hmmm, the way I understand it the screens may help low-end torque, not
max peak HP. And since most of us have regular truck that would be a
plus.

>I don't know, none of the experts I searched through seem to know, so
>I guess we all go with Harry, right????

All I said is they MAY work and why. BTW, it would show up on a flow
bench as a resriction. I think it is like smaller headers. Yes, it
causes both a restriction AND increased velocity. As someone else said,
they would break up the flow into several small "tunnels." I remember
one magazine testing them some time back (either Car Craft or Hot Rod)
and the test looked good for low-end torque.

They sell them in Summit, not J.C. Whitney (who sells the magnet crap
and other stuff).

BTW, for those who talked about putting a screen under the carb -- these
screens go right on the intake ports of the head. Also, the screen mesh
os MUCH larger than panty hose would be. You would not notice a
restriction by blowing on this screen.

But....*I* have never used them...so....??

Harry.

But the velocity would be temporary within the screen mesh and would
supsequently fall off below the velocity it had in front of the
screen so pressure would go up, velocity down at a critical point in
the intake tract unless I'm not analyzing this right?

The screen would reduce "volume" flowing through the same cross
section "after" the screen so would hamper cylinder filling wouldn't
it? I've seen two discussions on this, one says you want high
velocity at the valve but really that means high pressure at the
valve and high velocity "through" the valve and the other says you
need high velocity in the runners to create this high pressure at the
valve so maybe the screen, while causing a restriction, also causes a
high pressure area right in front of the valve just when it needs it?
Of course if this were the case then the flow bench would show an
improvement, not a loss...........boy that helped the discussion a
lot!

Guess we'll just have to wait til someone fires up his personal flow
bench and checks it out eh? Course they work at a specific pressure
so the pressure thing won't show up anyway..........Am I full of it
today or what? Don't worry, I go home in two hours, wheeeeeeew!

Hey gang!
Well, I got a lot of response about the headlight relay
conversion on my truck, so I put together some text about
how to accomplish the conversion along with a couple schematics.
Both Dana and Deacon were kind enough to proof-read the goods,
and both graciously offered up web space to post it.
I just sent it off for a proofread, and the next thing I knew both
Dana and Deacon sent me back URL's to go check out!
Deacon "won"? the job of putting together the page by virtue of
having something up and running before I even knew He was working
on it... Dana was only minutes behind with the beginings of a page.
*Much* thanks to both of them for their help and enthusiasm!
Also, thanks to the members of the truck list, Tom, Gary, Don, and
others who participated in the "whiter whites" thread. Some of their
comments and suggestion got incorporated into the final schematic
as "options" which I will add to my truck soon.

For those who are interested in making their lighting brighter,
please check out:

get a life on friday night!

Let me know how Y'all like it and send any suggestion, comments,
corrections, etc.

Very nicely done page. Good schematics and palin english text.



FYI the right way to implement diode logic is on the low-current side of
the relay. After 0.7 volts drop a marginal battery will still trip the
relay quite nicely and you won't lose any power to the lights.

Another neat trick is to use a diode for automatic headlight shutoff with
the ignition key (a la Volkswagen) but be sure to have a bypass switch for
emergencies. You can also add a headlight interrupter for the start
position of your ignition switch to insure maximum cranking current on cold
days.

well done. I'd like to add it to the articles we have
on FTE via a link. Let me know. I think it would make
a wonderful addition.

Does anyone have ACTUAL experience with either the store bought retrofit kits or
having it retrofit by a shop?

Let me know your experiences.

I need to pull my AC and it seems to be less expensive to convert then to buy
R12.

A question for the group... I am trying to install a 77 C4 tranny onto 68 302/
4v . The original 68 flexplate is an inch smaller and so is the stud pattern
on the torque converter (than the 77's). My question is... will using a 77 302
flexplate cause balance problems to the engine? (due to the 302 being
exernally balanced) The tranny was free and is in good shape. Any insights
would be appreciated..
