Yes John this is true. In the 30 years of automotive ownership I've
never had any of these vin #s checked for any reason. A friend had his
checked when registering his truck after the truck had gone unregistered for
ten years. Only my registration has been checked. I carry only PL&PD so the
insurance carrier has no interest in seeing my truck.
Are the rivets special? I thought they looked like pop rivets. If the
truck was stolen, the thieves would probably change the vin plate.
Understand this is hypothetical! I would never knowingly brake the law.
I was only inquiring what I would need to do! :) Seeing the upgrades others
have done I wondered how they identified their trucks after their mods. I
used my trucks as a representation of a hypothetical situation to ask the
question. I'm like doing a service for my fellow list members so they know
where they stand doing major modifications to their trucks.
With the age of our trucks I think the problems would be marginal. So
continue with your mods my friends. I hope this information is useful to
someone.

You Asked: >>Just curious; what kind of mileage do you guts get running

The old F700 (I guess this is fullsized) grain truck gets about 2/3
miles to gal average with the 300 I6. Is a '68 model with a 16'
flatbed dump, and usually hauls in the neighbor hood of 8/10 tons of
grain per load. I must say gas mileage is not a factor to be considered
in farm trucks for hauling grain from the field to the market.

Sorry John,
I didn't word that very well. What I meant was that distance from the
top of the piston to the pin centerline is different, so that the
piston doesn't come all the way to the top of the cylinder.
The pistons aren't dished, nor is the block different.
It's just a matter of how far up the cylinder the piston is at TDC.

Happy motoring,

Steve

I seem to remember when I bought a "van pan" to convert a 460 for use in my
truck that there was a DZ # stamped in it, but this was 10 years ago, so
not sure anymore. The previous post said the pan was still available from
the dealer so obviously the number would helpful in locating one.

>>> There's some exceptions out there, but most garden variety 390 heads

For instance, my '73 truck FE390 has combustion chambers that average
about 70cc. Add about 8cc for head gasket volume makes 78cc...

The cylinder volume of a FE390 is about 798.5cc Soooo, with if the piston
comes right to the top of the block, the compression ratio works out
to about 11.2:1 ! Yahoo!!

However, my truck 390 pistons don't nearly come to the top of the
cylinder, but leave another 36cc of volume in the cylinder in addition
to the 70cc in the head and the 8 for the gasket.
So the total volume = aprox 114cc which gives 8:1 compression. )-:

There's really only a few variations on the FE heads, (excluding "exotics"
like high rise, med rise, and tunnel port)
I'll bet there's not any real difference btween '68 car heads and '74 truck
heads except for the air injection bump in the exhaust port. (which can be
removed)

Happy motoring,

Steve

No! The thing I noticed was an increased angle of the rod the shorter
it was. wait is that what's happening? Because the long rod doesn't seem to
change it's pitch as much as the short rod the distance from the top of the
piston to the crank stays almost the same. The short rod has a noticeable
increase in pitch so the distance from the top of the piston to the crank
decreases with the increased angle?
Wait, that makes less sense than your explanation. No wait I think I
understand what I'm saying, ya, OK, the short rod like wipes the piston as
the rod angle changes nearing it's apex, were the long rod has a smother
transition at the peak do to less angle change.
That's it or this stupid model you made my build don't work worth a
sheet!
Now the orange battery worked. This isn't near as impressive. :)
If that's not it just do the math for me and quit trying to help me grow.

My old 62 F-600 flat bed with 330 FE (or was that a Y block?) got
about 9 on the highway but I never hauled quite that much, long
enough to check it. I know running the engine to operate my wood
splitter for a few hours pretty well emptied the tank................

I have the complete wiring system for the duraspark. all is hooked up
except for the two prong plug. (red & white wires) What would the
ballast resistor look like ? I have not noticed anything I cant't
identify except for a small round cylinder shaped thing with a single
wire next to the voltage regulator. I think this is some kind of
condensor type unit. Does the ballast resistor possibly attach to the
alternator ?? or should this be a item that stands alone ??

That is a condensor for reducing noise for the radio as I understand
it. The ballast resistor is a white piece of pourous ceramic with a
wire wound ferite core resistor in it about 3" long and about 3/4"
wide and should be somewhere on the firewall or fender wells. Since
it's a 64 and had points I'm not sure where it would be or if it may
have been removed by the previous owner. If you can't find it just
locate the pins on the ignition switch I mentioned and tie into the
wiring where ever it's conveninent, get a resistor from the parts
store and mount it where it can get some air for cooling. You just
need something to limit the red wire input to 6 - 8 volts that can
sustain the ignition amperages continuously which is why they use the
ceramic base and wire wound design. That design also eliminates
transient voltage to smooth out the flow similar to a choke used in
low frequency base speaker systems.

I said earlier that the machine shop I worked at used mineral spirits as
a solvent. I think we may have used it as a coolant during machining.
I don't really believe it is very flammable. I don't think it
evaporates like gas does so there is no cloud of vapors ready to burst
into flames. If you really want it to burn (or are begging for Darwin
to take you early) I'm sure it would. The parts washer I saw actually
had a hinged lid held in place with a piece of thick solder used as a
wire. If the washer caught fire the solder would melt and the lid would
fall and smother the flames. Probably Snap-On's method of covering
their posterior from people operating without working brain function.

turn it red, but the over the counter solution from the parts stores
isn't as strong. But still works very well.

hinges? How


Yeah, at first I thought "All I have to do is flip the hinges." But I got
to thinking, about how the edges were and everything and how they'd have
to move properly and I started to think, "This is definitely harder to do
than just flipping hinges." Well, I'll take a look at that article, see
how it's done, and maybe make it a long-term "if I get around to it"-type
project... I believe one can do anything with the proper tools, and a
good memory (in case one decides they can't do it after all and has to
put the darn thing back together) :)

Thank you very much, Neal. I agree, vehicles do look better without
outside accessories. I asked this question because I saw a 50-something
Ford in a magazine and it said it had shaved door handles... It looked
pretty sweet.

Low frequencies are like any other frequencies, so they are not
non-directional. The ideal sound system makes the sound come from a
single spot, with a broad soundstage, which is generally hard to do in a
car or truck. The easiest way to get bass up front is to put ot there :)
Although, one does not necessarily need to do that. Changing the angles
of the speaker (especially if you have bazooka tubes) can have a drastic
affect in how the bass appears to be coming from. When bass is up front,
you get a lot more Sound Q points, which means you win more sound-offs. I
want all the sound to be in the cabin (a lot of people shove subs in the
bed and crank it up, but I would like the functionality of my truck to
remain) and if I fit two subs up front, that makes a total of four (two
behind the seats) and the bass will be all around, which is better than
just coming from behind.

Subject: 300 V.S. 302

Since the topic was brought up I have a question on this. I have been
here for some time now and have learned alot at least compared to what I
knew when I started I am, and have been for a while now, swapping a 240
for the 302 and alot of people have asked why only a 302. My question is
what is really the difference between the 300 I6 and a 302 V-8 other
than the obvious block configuration? They are basically the same in
cubic inches so what's the difference and would a 300 I6 be better than
a 289 V-8? Just some things I've been thinking about. Thanks

Got a client with a fleet of E350 Super-Duty conversions used mostly for
city driving. He laments the loss of the 460 big-time. Says its' off-idle
grunt is much better. OTOH he loves the new ones on the highway.
