Subject: RE: FTE 61-79 - Re: Brake lines

Well, I can't answer the hot/cold issue with stainless but I can say that
this same material has been used on air craft for over 30 years with great
success. As to the balooning business, I haven't seen any evidence that it
makes a whit of difference over a "new" OEM line but the potential is
certainly there. The so called "rubber" OEM lines are also shielded with
steel webbing but it is inside the rubber, not visible but still there.
AFAIK it is not stainless though. I have all the latest junk on the bronco
and all OEM stuff on the Pickup and believe me I would much rather try to
stop the truck than the bronco.......

What I am saying is that if you need new lines then the stainless are a cool
replacement but don't replace them thinking you will get a better pedal.
Mine have been on for 2 years and there are no signs of any deterioration
and I didn't expect to see any based on my experience with aircraft lines.
IMNSHO they are an equal replacement and cool to look at but not of any
special advantage mechanically and if you are not carefull to get dot
approved lines you risk a bad crimp which can be disastrous so pay attention
to the details when searching for a set. I got mine from Earl's and
SuperLift (well some lift that starts with an "S")

You can buy pre-bent stainless steel hard lines from Classic Tubing I
believe it is and another one I can't recall but these are flared on a
machine which maintains the integrity of the metal during the flare process.
If you want to make your own you are much better off using aluminized mild
steel line form what I've been told and read about it.

Subject: RE: FTE 61-79 -Timing cover install....

I understand what you are saying but you are preventing one leak and causing
another this way. Depending on the car it can be very difficult to replace
an oil pan gasket in the car. I've done quite a few that way myself. I
guess it would depend on what really bugs you which one you will be
concerned about. Like I said though, if you don't loosen the pan or use a
pry bar to offset the pressure (and this is strictly guessing) when you
tighten the bolts on the cover the front seal will not be centered and will
fail sooner than it should and sometimes this can be very soon. When that
happens you get to do it all over again. A little more work now means a lot
less later usually. The point we are making here is that "if" you can, you
should do it the way we suggested and if you don't then be prepared for
problems later. The front seal is probably the hardest working seal in the
engine. Anything you can do to help it along will be of significant
benefit. Ok, here comes the rear seal arguments.............and then theres
the top ring in the cylinder and then........Give me a break here Ok?

One of the reasons, in the past, that I only glued one side of a gasket is
so I can remove it without damaging it later if necessary but from the
factory they usually glue everything to avoid warantees. I will probably
start gluing both sides now due to too many problems with leaks when I don't
and just hope I don't get into removing any in the vehicle :-)

As an owner of Haynes, Chilton,Clymer (for motorcycles), official Honda
(for motorcycles), and official Ford manuals, I'd agree with George. The
exploded views in the official manuals are much easier to see, and contain
part numbers which make the job much easier.

One of my "could kick myself in the butt for sellin' it" vehicles. Mine
had a 302, 3 speed manual trans that I moved from the tree to the floor.
When I got rid of it, it needed a lot of work and at the time people
preferred the new style Broncos so they weren't worth much. Now I find
them in the truck trader for more than I paid for it. Just my luck. :[

Same here! You can count on learning a lot here, no matter what your
background. There are many knowledgeable people here (I'm not one of
them) and everyone's input is welcome.

The big difference here is a "pre flight check" on every air-craft before it
leaves the ground ... while its a good idea in a car/truck as well, lets
face it, very few people actually do this ... this means any cracks in the
lines will be detected where as people are more likely to ignore the brake
lines on their car as they are hard to see ... heck when my rubber one
cracked the only reason I noticed it was 'cause I parked with the wheels
turned one day and happened to look at it, as a result my life was saved ...
well okay I caught it before it ruptured which meant I didn't have any brake
failures 'cause of that....

The hot/cold thing is something steel does and I can't remember if stainless
is as affected by it or not, but frankly stainless is a new metal and we're
still learning stuff about it on the MSE side of things (Material Science)

This really only appears under very hard braking and such, normally seen on
race tracks ... not a big difference for most drivers, but some of us push a
bit harder than others ... also the amount of "boost" you get from your
assisst might make a difference as well ...

As far as I know the 'stangs after the very first ones never came with a
2spd tranny ... and even then I'm not sure they ever did, though I have a

The only exceptions might be the Rancheros, but that was my first thought

The three speed shift collar finally gave out. Cracked apart at the
shift knob pin. Ordered replacement from Autokrafters.
Question : Is the shift tube supposed to be tight in the collar or
loose. Mine is tight. Being the first time I have taken one apart
I have no past reference. Also, in the tube is a spring and a tapered
doohickey that slides on the steering shaft. Does the spring go first or
the tapered doohickey and what does it do? I noticed that the end of the
shift tube is slightly tapered.

Any help in getting this reassembled will be appreciated.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Brake Lines

I was wondering WHY anyone would put so much fuss into painting
brake lines. Maybe a show-truck, but not a daily driver. I think the
new lines look sharp against a black painted frame, looks mechanical,
man-like. I've always felt lines just have to be replaced once-in-awhile.
Generally, I never keep a vehicle over 2 yrs. and everything I've done
to it lasts quite awhile.Always fixin' em up for the "next guy".
Biggest problem is finding right lengths or usable lengths. Stores think
everyone needs 12", 20",30" etc...... never understood why they
have a 51" odd one. Tying them to frame is most important part, to
prevent vibration and cracking.

I'm thinking there is something very wrong with installation of the leaking

caused by rusted front cab mounts. It's a common Ford truck
problem and would make door out of whack, too! I'ld check
cab orientation first.
Also, older shop manuals (50's) show how to align doors by using
big rubber hammers, and slamming door on it in different places
(including upper window area) or center to pull window in.
And, putting a bar in hinge area and forcing door closed to
change way it hangs, etc. We do this to New trucks in plant,
beleive it or not! I flipped when I saw that, and then read about
it in my "antique" shop manual.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 77 Ford E250 Ford Shop Manual

Hi Rob,
Some folks have suggested Ebay for a manual. I bought one complete set
of '79 Ford Light Truck Manuals for about $65 and a single '79 Ford LT
manual (Part of the other set) for $6 Canadian. You just have to keep trying
and you'll find the manuals under misc., automotive or books. Try'em all.

The two are identical except for bore and stroke. The 250 is very close but
uses the small block V8 bell housing pattern and bigger clutch. The 144 looks
the same but
has only four main bearings to the others seven. Anyway, that 200 is a
practically indestructible engine. I had a lot of trouble selling the one out
of my '79 Capri because anybody who had a car that still used one ever had any
problems with it.
There's even a bunch of speed equipment available for it.

Mine is a 351M, with original black paint from the cowl back, and epoxy primer
(still black) at the front. I started my "restoration" early by an encounter with
a telephone pole Its an interesting story, although no alcohol or car chases with
any cops were involved.
OOPS, at least the front sheetmetal is straight and ready for paint. hehe
Nice to meet you,

The '77 is a one owner (before me) Ranger with a 351M, 4 speed. Runs good,
but is kind of a dog. I have a 429 to put in it when time and money permit
for more pulling power. The '69 has a 302 (soon to be a EFI 351W), 4 speed,
Detroit Locker rear, Dana 44 front with C#$%Y disc brakes, and 35" tires
etc. I also bought this one from the original owner as a bone stock, uncut
Bronco.
Nice to meet you,

Subject: FTE 61-79 - ADMIN: LISTS AND WEB SITE WILL GO DOWN!

Now that I've got everyone's attention!

Ford Truck Enthusiasts will be completing (hopefully) its move
to its new dedicated server this weekend. There WILL be an
interruption of service. Depending on how long it takes your
ISP's DNS server to receive IP updates, you will lose access
to FTE's web site and email lists for 24-72 hours. Anything
sent to the lists or posted to the web site may be lost during
this time. This is unavoidable since we do not host our own
DNS server.

Please be patient during this time. Don't ask questions about
when FTE will be back up or ask about the status. This will
only interrupt me and make it take longer. Some services on
the site may have minor glitches (ie, bugs) during the course
of the next week. The chat engine will be down for about a week.

After the changes, you can expect faster mail delivery, and
a ****much**** fast web site. The transition will start
early Saturday morning.

Regards,
Ken Payne
Admin, Ford Truck Enthusiasts

I just got one last summer from a FLAPS for about $45.

There are reman'd ones out there, but for $45 I didn't bother.

Keep looking and calling.

Anyone have any clue where to get a reman water pump for my 1964 F-100 with
the 292 motor? I found one at NAPA, but it's a new one, and runs $75.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Windshield Gap

After I siliconed my windshield I remembered some very good
advice about windshields. Use roofing tar. It never really
gets solid, displaces water, and lasts a very long time.
Excellent for thoes lower glass sills to keep the water from
sitting and rusting.

Easy to clean up after it's dried out, unlike silicone,
using mineral spirits.

I'd hate to tweak a door to match a tweaked body, but I
might have to. It's a separate problem.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - radius arm bushings

Okay you suspension experts, anyone have tips on changing the radius (strut)
arm bushings on a 76 F100 2wd?

After I take the spring out, do I have to remove the front connection of the
radius arm at the I beam? Or will the radius arm and I-beam move forward
enough to clear the rear bracket? What about the flexible brake line, does
it have to be removed? About how long with it take to do both sides?

I ordered the polyurethane bushings from Energy Suspensions. Anyone ever
tried these?
