Howdy!

I am hoping someone can help me. For all those that are new or
don't remember me, I have a 63 F100 LWB Flareside with a 292 Y-Block and a
Warner T-87.
I am in need of the tube that feeds oil from the rocker
arm assembly to the lifter valley. (I think this the right description for
it?!?!?) I have tried Obsolete, Don Carpenterr's, Kanter, and another
place that I can't remember the name to. Nobody had it or knew were to
get it. I asked a couple of the machine shops here in town and no one has
one.
Can anyone tell me were I can possibly find one or if anyone has
one I would be willing to buy off of you. Has anyone ever had one made or
machined?

Thank You.

I think I can help here. i have a Keith Black dyno program that figures
V.E., which it uses to figure the CFM needed for max power. It also does
HP and TQ, alomg with a graph.. It is not the best around but it was
cheap ($9.99 and that included S&H).

For the Ford 390 it says that 810 CFM are needed for max power. If I
were you I would go with a 750.

Anyone else out there want me to punch the numbers in? Just need bore
and stroke.

I see somebody is looking for a different set of headers.....the Cyclones I
use (69 f-100 4x4) come apart at the collector. The two front tubes on the
passenger side slide out, meaning that you install the back portion of the
header, slide in the front two tubes, and tighten everything up. No need to
jack up the engine, since the front two tubes route in front of the engine
support brackets. Also, they leave plenty of clearance for the starter since
all four tubes are not jammed behind the motor mount....

I don't know if the Cyclones for the 4x2's do the same thing or not, but its
worth asking...

THEORETICAL AIR FLOW = (RPM x DISPLACEMENT) / 3456

VE is a percentage. assume 100% or more for a race motor and 85% for a mild street motor and somewhere in between for hotter street motors.

multiply THEORETICAL AIR FLOW and VE to get the estimated carb size for your application.

the 3456 is a constant to make the units of the equation come out properly.

also, FYI, if an engine is dyno'd, you can find the actual VE by measuring the actual airflow, and then:

VE=(actual airflow)/(THEORETICAL AIR FLOW)

happy calculating!

I'm trying to use this formula to calculate the carb size for my 390.
Looks like a 700cfm should work for me. Is the VE a constant or
is this a variable based on exhaust port/header port size? The 3456
number is a constant. I'm just trying to understand the equation so I
can apply to other application as well.

They look to be priced the same as the JCW catalog $192.00 a pair. My
God, Why so much for ABS? If the Door panels I'm making for the '76 F350
come out too stupid looking I may go for these. They do carry arm rest at
$50.30 ea
The door panels come with new padded arm rest so I guess that accounts
for $100.00 of the total price. Dash covers for $83.60. After seeing the
price of the arm rest, I figured a dash cover was going to be a couple
hundred.
Thanks Mike. This does look like the place to get this stuff. I just may
do it that way, so I'll bookmark the address.
Their mailing address is 4017 Hwy 67 N, San Angelo, TX 76905. Anyone
around there know about this place?

My former '57 F100's motor had a VE of 103% at 6300rpm.

When you say steel wheel do you mean plastic on steel or is the whole frame
steel?

My 70's steering wheel is kind of devolving! when it is damp out the plastic or
paint can be wiped off, and no matter how many times I clean it, it is still
does it.


Has anyone had a plastic wheel powder coated?

I to have questions.

66 Ford Galaxie 7-Litres were a separate series. Basically they were fancy
Galaxie 500 XL with buckets and console. They came only with the FE 428 or
the dual quad 427 (very rare for that year). At no extra cost the buyer
could opt for a 4-speed. These cars have special ornamentation and a
woodgrain steering wheel. A little over 8,000 2dr hardtops were made in 66
and a little over 2,000 convertibles. These are great cars and will hold
there own against stock and slightly modified 5.0 mustangs. I used to own
an 86 Mustang GT and now I currently own a 66 Ford 7-Litre with 428 C-6.
These big heavy Fords will surprise you.

From: Sean Christian Hess
Subject: MAJOR HESITATION = MAJOR PAIN

Fellow Fordites,

Last November, my cajones finally convinced my brain that I NEEDED a big
'Merican truck, so I bought a '69 Ford F250/390/C-6. I'm still in the
steep part of my learning curve about V-8s, as I was a born and bread
Euro-Japo-Boofu driver until recently.

I have a ton of questions, but I'll start with my truck's most obvious
problem. It has a serious hesitation or stumble when you first press
down on the gas pedal from a standing start. It has a new,
remanufactured Autolite/Ford 2 barrel carb, and I've adjusted the
accelerator pump linkage to its maximum setting (I think). That is, the
accelerator pump rod is in the upper-most hole on the over-travel lever,
and the other end of the rod (which attaches to the accel. pum lever) is
in the hole farthest away from the body of the carb. Unlike the
exploded view of the "Two Barrel - Ford" carb in my Chilton's, the carb
on my truck does NOT have a screw on top of the accel. pump housing to
further adjust the flow.

Is this hesitation typical of this engine and carb set-up?

Could the problem be that I'm actually bogging the engine down with too
much gas?

Could it be due to the use of "clean-burning" gas with MTBE and other
additives that didn't exist when this truck was made?

Does anybody know of any books on tuning Autolite carbs? Holley books
are a dime a dozen ...

Hi All, I want an opinion from the list members. I just found a 1976
F250 SuperCab Camper Special 2wd with a near perfect bed. Dual tanks &
toolbox (unfortunately not fuel doors though)what do you think it's
worth? The whole truck I mean. If I get it I'd like to sell the cab (No
Rust) to some one that can use it for fairly cheap. It's a 390 4bbl that
doesn't run but I don't know what's wrong with it (might be a simple
fix?).
Gary, on the article you were talking about did they mean the sleeve
that rides inside the seal and spaces the front pulley out. If that's
the one I know that at least from 1980 on they are balanced by this it
has a built in counter weight just like the crank.
Dana, the seal for the distributor should be cut with a slope to it. the
fat part is on top thin part is on bottom (towards

Subject: Re: Disc brake guide updated to cover 65-66

I and a friend called all the custom shops in the rags that offer
conversion kits for Ford Trucks. Even Master Brakes (?) said they
discontinued the '65-'66 conversion kit. They all said it was unreliable
in making it fit from one conversion to the next. It worked with '74
parts, but some years it didn't. I can tell you from personal
experience the '74 parts fit my '65 without modifying any components and
thats why its recommended. My parts came off a F250 Camper Special. I
got the spindles, excellent rotors, calipers (trade them in for a
rebuilt kit), old hoses (throw them out), and a front anti-sway bar for
$99.00. All removed from the donor truck ready for me to pick it up.
However, I am in Louisiana so it may be cheaper here. You need to buy
the king pins I recommended for 65-'66. The guys on this list will tell
you that the '65-'66 is the same truck. '65 is the first year to use
Twin I-Beam. The '74 king pins WILL NOT FIT! The '65-'66 King Pin is
notched dead center on the length. The '74 is notched off center. Take
the MOOG part number that I suggested and ask your parts guy if that
number is the same for '66. My guy says it is. Also, for you guys
belonging to a credit union...ask if they have a members discount card.
Mine does and it has a good parts house on it that gives me a 40%
discount on my new parts or rebuit parts.

I have been reading this list for a few months now and the information I

I have a 76 F150 Ranger with a 360 and C6. It runs fine but the rust
kind of has it beat. I have been looking at another truck for sale. It
is a 70 F250 Sport Custom Camper Special. I havent drove it yet, but
as far as the body there isnt hardly any rust to speak of. I was
thinking of maybe selling my truck and getting this one. I thought it
would be a good idea to ask your advice first. They are asking 950 for
the truck.
If you guys could give me some info on motor, trans, etc. it would be
real helpful. The vin # is F25YLJ22527.
I am looking forward to any replies. If you would like you can email me

Subject: Re: carb size

I think that I should clarify a few thing that I said about carb size.


CFM = Displacement X RPM X VE / 3456
Horsepower = Torque X RPM / 5252
Torque = HP X 5252 / RPM

VE is Volumetric Efficiency. It is the ratio of the volumne of fuel-
air mixture to the volume of the a cylinder in one cycle. It will be
one at low RPM and may increase to 1+ at mid RPM due to tuning of
manifolds and headers. At high RPM VE will decrease. The cam duration
and overlap also contributes to VE.

The number 3456 = 2 X 1728
where 1728 is the number of cu in / cu ft. and 2 is to divide
displacement in half, since only half of a 4 cycle engine produces
vacuum in one revolution.

Almost any size carb can be tuned to run on any engine, just get the
mixture right. You can put a Holley Dominator on a Honda if all you
want to do is go WOT thru a 1/4 mi. Just don't try to drive on the
street. Thats called drivability. Since this is a truck list I
recommend 'smalled is better'. If you ever want to pull a boat up a
boat ramp, you need excellent throttle response. Throttle response is
best with small venturi's. It's the engine displacement and the VE
that produce power at low RPM, the throttle controls that power.
Sorry to run on, but I learned the hard way.

I may be able to get what you need. I have a friend that has some 292
parts and I will see if he has the tubes. I have a 63 F250 with the 292
so I know exactly what you are talking about. Give me a couple of days
to check it out. Do you need for boths heads or just one?
