sounds like you're thinking of the minimopar site.  that guy wasn't biased
against any particular filter(s), just cut them open and described what he
saw.  good site.

fwiw, I wouldn't put any kind of fram filter on a motor vehicle unless I
really wanted to kill it.  Istrt motorcrafts are rebadged purolaters (and
not too bad).  I use wix (napa and car quest are the same) filters, but in
the winter I'll switch sometimes to a silicone anti-drainback filter (the
top line puro, iirc) for the coldest months.

oh, and besides the general wretchedness of fram filters, allied signal is
a scum-sucking--and that's the very nicest way I could think of putting
that--company as well (but I do, I admit, have a bone to pick with them).

Correct, you definitely want to use a 1/2" drive rachet with a 4' breaker
bar.  Of if the bolt is on really good, then a 18" Craftsman breaker bar
under the 4' pipe.  They will replace the breaker bar once you spin the
socket holder enough.

If you are in a junkyard, use a 4' breaker bar, and the bolt breaks, you
probably didn't want whatever it was you were trying to get off that bad
anyway, because that old part was probably shot anyway (At least that's
what I tell myself.)

Well I made it up to that salvage yard in Maine.
classicford.com and he had lots of stuff to choose from.  mostly
the pick ups 66 and older, the 67-72 models were pretty well
picked out, a few had good body parts.  I did buy some trim for
the rear window, and rain trough that runs up the back of the
drivers door, around the front above the windshield and back to
the other passenger door, but i still don't know it it can be
installed on my truck which came with out it stock.  It dawned
on me after i was driving home that mabey this won't just clip
on over what's already on my truck, I'll find out thursday when
it gets delivered.  This guy pulls all the parts himself.  I did
find what i wanted less an original jack, but i think it was all
a bit pricey, scour every salvage yard in your area before you
buy from a specialty yard.

Yea.  I'll bet that's not what you told your Snap-On guy.  But no matter, they
WANT to believe you that you were only unbolting front seat brackets.  Yea.  ;-)
Now, the new kid in the Sears tool department, he'll believe ANYTHING.

But any more, even Home Depot's Husky line is fully guarenteed against Godzilla.

I try not to abuse my rachets, but let me break a breaker bar, and some tool truck
driver is gonna' catch H&\!  That's what they're MADE for!  Abuse, not breakage.

I dropped this Mopar-guy a note the other evening to ask if he
were ever going to finish his study, and if he were looking for
donations of filters.  Told him of the many references to his
pages here at FTE.  So far, no reply.  Maybe he lost interest.

Those hold the collar to the collumn.  If you remoits hard to explain, but if
you pull these off, and take off the collar, you have to have the nuts
started on the bolts before you install the collar.  The bolts are about 1/2
long, and work on somewhat of a slide, as you tighten them, they grasp the
tube of the column.  Take it apart and you'll see.  Its not hard to figure
out once you have it in front of you.  But putting it into words is beyond me.

Is that all you say to your self if its the last bolt of 18 to pull and all

In 1980, I pulled a Ford 9000 with a '65 F-100 4x2 flareside, 240 I6 - 4 spd.
Had to smoke the clutch a little but I did it and had lotsa unbelieving
onlookers. Wish I still had that ol truck, but it was one of Maine's finest
rust-outs. I still have the tranny and 16" rims for memories tho.

A recently purchased 1/2" Sears ratchet was broke w/out any help from a pipe (and
I'm not a mega-muscle guy). Goes to show ya that most things ain't what they used
to be. Guess I'll stick with my 25 yr old S-K Wayne set with the original ratchet
that just keeps on ticking.

A wise investment would be a set of 3/4" drives. Mine goes down to 3/4" socket and
most things on a p/u can be moved with just the breaker bar.

Heard a rumor yesterday about another Ford junk"barn" on Rt4 in Turner.
Suposedly, this guy has a barn full of nothing but Ford truck parts.
I'll be checking it out.

Boy does that sound familiar.  You should see the look on their face when
you bring in _three_ 1/2" ratchets to be returned!  LOL!  Boy those rear
end u-bolts are a PITA to remove.  (GRIN)  I guess that's what happens
when you put a 4 foot cheater bar on the end of the ratchet.  BTW I also
walked out with a 1/2" breaker bar with did not break like the
aforementioned three 1/2" ratchets.

Subject: Re: Update: Tightening bearings, hubs & shocks
Date: Tue, 12 Sep 2000 08:16:50 -0700

When installing the spring seat, the little sheet metal cup at the bottom
next to the bearing nuts.......the bottom of the cup goes out toward the
spring and the edges of the lip sit on the edge of the outer race of the
bearing or a small shoulder in the hub.  If you install these with the
bottom of the cup against the bearing like it appears they should be the
spring seat will self destruct against the rotating portion of the bearing
and eventually destroy the bearings.  All the other parts are self
explanitory :-)

BTW, the book calls for 0.001 - 0.010" axial free play in the bearing after
all nuts are tight which is basically the way wheel bearings have been
installed since the cave man but with disk brakes you want to keep it as
close to zero as possible, with drums it's much less important.  Backing off
1/4 turn is a beginning point not a law or spec, the spec is the final axial
free play.

Those have a square head.  The corners of the head hook into slots in the
column.  That's what holds in on the column.

I'm not an expert on this by any means, but I'm thinking there were some that
did not have the spare mounted there ... but I'm also thinking they are very
rare and hard to find fenders that eliminate it, you may have to find something
aftermarket, or have a good body man "fix" yours ...
