Hey Sleddog, what is a stock port-o-sonic worth? Are they hard to come
by? I have one that I'm not very happy with (it doesn't seem to like anything
under about 3000 rpm). Anybody got a good dual plane they wanna trade? :)

My '74 Motor Manual only goes back to '68, but it lists torque specs for
both 289 and 302 in 68. I suspect they apply to earlier 289s. I'll give you
the whole list, but rods are 19-24, and mains are 60-70. 351s and larger
motors mostly list 40-45 for rods, except '68 427, 53-58; even the six
cylinders have 40-45 for rods. 351s and larger motors all list 95-105 for
mains, although for some of them there is a footnote which says 1/2" bolts
95-105 ft. lbs., 3/8" bolts 35-45 ft.lbs.

Spark plugs 15-20

RC,
I saw your bid on the truck manuals at Ebay. I have a full set of '78
manuals (closer to your '75 model year) I will sell you for the same price
as the ones on ebay go for. I really want a set of '79 manuals to match my
'79 truck. I don't want to bid against you and drive the price up, we both
know what the books are worth, hopefully no one else will come along and
drive the price too high. My books are in very good shape, very clean. The
only downgrade is that the edges of the pages are yellowed, I assume from
years of absorbing cigarette smoke. If the ebay seller can't find the
electrical manual I would want to keep my schematic book.
Let me know what you think. I'll see ya back at the Ford-Truck list.

my understanding is that sagging springs that are rearched will quickly sag

try it. I'm guessing its not any cheaper, just get new ones.

A local speed shop has headers for FE powered 4X4 trucks from 67 through
75. My question is what's the difference between 4X2 and 4X4 headers?
Without having them to check the fit, I'm not sure I want to duy
something I can't use. Has anyone put 4X4 headers on a 4X2 without any
trouble? I've been through modifying headers before, after dropping a
289 into a 67 Merc 4X2, I really don't want to go through that again!

Subject: Re: Rear Bearings

I have a Spice 70 in a 62 f350 with this same setup. From what I have been
able to read in the service manual, the gear oil provides the lubrication
when the axle is level, the bearing grease is when the axle is tilted and
the gear oil moves away from the bearings. The recommended greasing for
mine is to provide a small dam of grease on both sides of the bearing to
limit the gear oil from "washing out" the bearing grease. It seems strange
to allow the gear lube in and then worry about it washing out the axle
grease - there must have been some thought behind using the axle lube for
the bearings. Other Ford trucks of this vintage (using Timken or Eaton
rear ends) show having a seal on both sides of the bearings to keep all of
the axle lube away from the bearings.

I have a question concerning center carrier bearings.
1)Why is this pressed on? Or is my just stuck? The 36 year old lubed for
life bearing did' t work anymore and the rubber housing became the bearing
- - could it have melted onto the splined shaft?

2)On the new piece from NAPA, it says to lube it up to prevent dirt from
getting in it. Does this mean it requires regular lubing (there is no
grease fitting, or is this just a do it one time and forget about it? The
old one was a lubed for life. If it needs lube it seems like one of those
needle like attachments for a grease gun could do the job, but it seems a
waste and mess if I am only doing it to prevent exterior corrosion. Any
ideas?

3)The bearing installation instruction sheet (literally a 1 sq. inch piece
of paper) says to rebalance the driveshaft. This seems excessive to me,
especially since I have taken care to mark the pieces of the driveshaft and
where they attach to the transmission and the rear end so all of the
orientation is the same. Thoughts?

4)By the way I just finished redoing the back end brakes on this truck - I
appreciate the discussion on doing the full floating rear end. Usnig the
big socket on these nuts instead of a chisel was quite a revelaton. It is
actually possible to get good feel for tightness and not wind up with a
trashed nut. I appreciate the tip about the feel of .0010 to .0001 free
play and that the roller bearings like some play instead of no play.

5) I would like to get a 460 in the front someday. I am a bit conerned
with the drum brakes (after rebuild) being adequate. They are the 1 ton
truck brakes - any ideas on adequacy. I will never haul 1 ton at speed.
My concern is that braking goes up linearly with weight and with the square
of speed (MV^2/2). The more I look at the front end the rougher it looks.
I sitll have the beam axle and want to keep it (OK call me stupid), so the
regualar disc brake conv don't seem to work - I probably could find
spindles from a 1 ton that would fit my king pins, but they probably
wouldn't work with the gemmer gear box - maybe the answer is a complete
splindle and steering changeover (Yuck).

Wow this is just like therapy for the truck sick.
Seriously though, I appreciate the info I have gotten from everyone.

Let me know your thoughts on any of these items.

Jim

I'm starting to round-up the info to do some work on my engine,300 cu/in
six.Its original equipment with 70,000 miles on it and it runs
great,however I would like to get more torque at lower rpm's.I've heard
comments that 300's can be worked up to get some pretty good power.I use
the truck just about exclusively for pulling my horse trailer and it
does a good job but hills can get to it and with the tranny I have(t-18
I think)dropping back to 3rd means dropping to 40 mi/per/hr.So to make a
long story short I could use more torque at the lower end(2200-3600 rpm
max).Anybody with experience or info on what might be some modifications
availible for this engine I would like to hear from.Thanks Bruce

Subject: Re: F350 4x4's

Dave & Bill...you guys are correct. Ford's FIRST factory F-350 4x4 was in
1979!! The factory literature (which I have) says "For '79, Ford 4-wheeler
toughness comes bigger than ever! Now, for '79, Ford expands your off-road
horizons with a new heavier duty 4-wheeler series---the F-350!!!! This gives
you the greatest choice ever of Ford 4x4 pickups to meet your requirements.
Ford's newest and biggest 4x4 pickup, the F-350 features the popular 5.8L
(351) V-8 engine, Select-Shift Automatic transmission with part-time 4-wheel
drive, plus an extra-heavy-duty axel----ALL STANDARD. And it's designed to
run on regular or unleaded gas.
Ford 4-wheelers are built Ford tough for off-roading. For specs on all Ford
4x4's, see the chart on the back cover."

I have had several 1978 & 1979's (F-250 & F-350's) with the Dana 60 front
axels. The 1978 & 1979 F-250 4x4's could be ordered with the "optional" 4,500
LB front axel.....Ford called this there snow plow option package. The 1979
F-350 4x4 had the Dana 70 rear Axel & the Dana 60 Front Axel. As far as I
know most of the F-series pickups from 1973-1977 could have the Dana 60 front
axel...BUT not as we see them in the 78's & 79's. They had what some people
refer to as the "beach ball" type front axels. I have a set of 1973-1979 FORD
Master Parts and Accessories Catalog (the same ones that the FORD dealers use)
and come across a few interesting things. 1. Ford shows axel models "60-F"
from 1973 to 1977. 2. Ford shows axel models "60-7F" from 1978 to 1979.
Well I hope I have help someone out!!!!! Any Questions...just ask.

Hi all,

I want to get my F-250 repainted soon and I need some advice on getting
it repainted. The current factory paint job (limestone green) is faded
and rust is beginning to show so I need to hurry. What kind of things
should I look for when I go shopping around for estimates? What
kind/brand of paint? What kind of warranty do I need? Should I get it
repainted to match the original factory color or can I change color
without a hassle/costing a fortune? It would be terrific if anyone
could recommend someplace in the Southern California/Orange County area.
Thank you.

Subject: Isopropyl Alcohol, FTV2 #42

Ethan--

Sorry I'm late on this one. I have run Isopropyl Alcohol in a couple of
vehicles to get water out of the fuel system, with good success.

A couple of guidelines:

- - Get the highest percentage alcohol content you can find, usually at a
pharmacy
- - After putting the stuff in the tank, run tank as close to completely
dry as possible
- - Do NOT leave it in the fuel system for extended periods

Isopropyl alcohol is essentially the main ingredient in the IsoHeet that
stores sell for 2$/4oz. You don't want to leave it in your fuel system
for a couple reasons: it eats regular seals, and it is hygroscopic
(adsorbs water). If you run it out of your system right away, regular
fuel will wash it off of the seals and not harm anything. It basically
carries water out of the fuel lines and tank and into the combustion
chamber (watch it come out the tailpipe!). It probably wouldn't be much
of a power boost, unless you rejetted/retuned for it. You might be able
to substitute Isopropanol, but I'm not sure. Anyone else?

Good luck.

Chad

There's some exceptions out there, but most garden variety 390 heads
have the same combustion chamber volume whether from car or truck.
(68-72cc's)
Different compression ratios are mostly accomplished by piston deck height.
65 (66?) and earlier heads may have the larger CJ sized ports and slightly
smaller combustion chambers. 68 thru 76 heads all have similar ports
except for the "smog bump" in the exhaust.

If Your 74 doesn't need to be smogged or at least doesn't have an air pump,
try and get a set of early heads that don't have that nasty air injection
"bump" in the exhaust port. That sucker is real restrictive and takes a long
time to remove with the die grinder.. (;
'68 could go either way, may have the smog bump or may not. '66 and earlier
won't have it. Your 74's most certainly do have it.... (D3TE castings?)

Happy motoring,

The springs in my '71 short box were *way* shot.
It origionally had 4+1 springs (4 leaves + 1 overload).
I found a nice set of wrecking yard 7+1's from a 3/4 ton that fit.
I removed the center leaf to make 6+1's and installed them with
new bushings and the truck rides and feels *much* better now...
It's stiffer when empty, but feels and handles way better.
And I've hauled 1200+ lbs in it and it just smiled and asked for more!

When I was looking for rear springs, new was expensive and no one would
really gaurantee a re-arch for very long.
I found the 3/4 ton 7+1's in excellent shape for real cheap.
Used parts to the rescue again...

Happy motoring,

Better than any V8 - and more torque to boot.

Look in the wheel well. There should be nuts in there holding the parking
brake support. It was on my '73 anyway. It should be the same on the '68. It

Either this is a hoax, someone is a little slow , or the lead singer from
Jane's Addiction and Porno for Pyros has just bought a ford pickup. I mean
Perry Farrell?
Alternative fans will know what I mean. (or maybe it's all a big coincedence,
if that's the case sorry, It's just a little strange, u know?)

later,

Don't flame someone for asking a question, no matter what the question
is (with in reason). I still say the only stupid question is one that's not....
