Subject: Steering Column, Shift Tube Replacement

HI all,

Hope everybody had a good Holiday Season.


I am trying to replace the shift tube, in the steer column, on my 74 F250
(Automatic, Column mounted Shifter). I have the steering wheel and all
related parts removed. I removed the snap ring holding the Flange/Selector
Hub onto the steering column. Did everything the Ford Shop Manual told me
to do, but I haven't been able to remove the Selector Hub From the Steering
Column. Manual says to "Carefully work the flange and selector hub and
wires over the upper end of the steering shaft."

Anybody got any suggestions, tips, that can pass along??

Hi all.

Sorry to bother everyone with something small like this, but I just
couldn't help it.

My 66 F100 reached the 100,000 Mile Mark on the way home from work New
Year's Eve.

What a way to start the New Year!

Subject: RE: Steering Column, Shift Tube Replacement

the top tab on the tube (lookes like conduit) in my 77 f150 fell off, i
tigged it on a couple of times (i really can't weld very good.) don't
remember what i did to remove it from the steering shaft though.

so, what i did after not being able to fix it was traded my cousin for a
ratchet shifter from b&m. put it in, ran the cable, and no more problems.

Subject: Changing oil problems!

Usually I have no problems with changing the oil on my cars and
trucks. Unfortunately, the drain plug on my '77 F15 is directly above the
tie rods. :( Thus, everyt ime I drain my oil my tie rods and a couple of
other components get a nice oil bath. :( I have the 400 in my truck and
it has, I believe, a reas sump. ANybody out there have any ideas about
how I can keep this fron happening? It really sucks to have the oil
spread from my tie rods to the garage floor. Thanks.

Subject: RE: Changing oil problems!

sure do! there is a company selling a a drainplug that you unscrew the
plig, it does not come out yet, then you screw in a fitting with a place
for a small hose. the small hose you supply though. the hose routes the
oil into the pan for you.

unfortunatly, last time i called summit racing they said they did not carry
it anymore. they told me to call the company, but i lost the information.

has anyone else seen this system? i know some magazines had a short clip
on them also, but do not remember which ones.

i hope this helps some. (i have the same problem on my dodge)

on my ford (33" tires, 6" lift), i use a tall bucket, and a length of 2"x2"
angle iron. i put the angle iron into the bucket and it lays at an angle,
coming close to the plug. the oil drains onto the angle iron and flows
into the bucket. a piece of channel works even better, as the angle tends
to want to fall to one side if i don't hold it.

List members,

I would like to buy one of the old Ford power steering coolers. I believe
that these were used on late 60's early 70's 429 equipped cars. Anyone
have one or know where I could get one of these?

It must be the reason I got the 460 to go into my '64 on New Years day
!! Lots of mickey mousing around, but we got the engine in. I think when
your truck hit the 100,000 mile mark...mine was born.

How about some info on this guy...My L&L headers won't fit in my
'64. Do you have a number for this place ??

Or does anyone know what headers will fit the '64 with stock manual
steering and a transplanted 460 ??

Thanks..Brian

The website is www.stans-headers.com I think. If you do a Yahoo search for
Stan's Headers (actually do an Alta Vista search) you'll find it. They seem
very knowlegeable.

Actually today I was CURSING my Blackjack headers. Sure, they have decent
tubing and 1/4" plates, but...

The starter quit on my M100 352 the other day. And I went to take it off
today and man, I had to wrestle with it and the header to get the darned
thing out. GRRRR!! Several scuffed knuckles later (and over an hour) I had
it out and was not relishing the idea of putting the new one in.

Apparently, Stan's Tri-Y has superior starter clearance. At least on the
FE. Ask about the starter clearance on the 460, maybe Forrest Wolf can give
you some more info on that one. Can't wait for my Stan's-equipped 410, and
in my 4x4 no less (so as I can walk underneath to do maintenance). Almost
makes me want to not rebuild anything just so I can enjoy fixing it.... 8^)
