3" Rancho lift, sorry if that was confusing, but I do slide right under the
truck, put on a 12" extension on the air rachet and can unbolt all the oil
pan bolts laying on my creeper, then the oil pan drops right out, don't
even have to jack the truck up.

My business partner and I DO have a 7000# car lift, but we need the control
box for it and the safety supports, we have the lift itself and most of the
hydraulics, just need to assemble.  We will put it in his garage (bigger at
his house than mine) but after that I'll have access pretty much whenever I
want.

When I looked for them for my 302 (I'd be willing to bet they are the

looking up the wrong thing. Turned out everyone had them (PepBoys,

Hate to be the bearer of negative news, but You shoulda bought the Diesel.
Better mileage, more power, more grunt, better resale value.  I have almost
100K miles on mine and it just keeps getting better.  I don't use mine to
tow everyday either.  Mainly just going back and forth to work, I'm getting
around 18 mpg. Low 20's on the highway, if I keep it under 70 (with 4.10's
and the auto, I got even better with the 5 speed). Towing with GCWR around
18K (with the Bronco, FTE content :^) ), it gets a respectable 12 to 14 mpg,
with very decent pulling power.
On the other hand, there are some ECM chips and exhaust systems on the
market that will put a little fire into the V10.  It's not all that bad of
an engine.

I have a set of these rubber valve stem seals, but they were for a 351
Cleveland. I may be wrong, but aren't the seals the same for both 351C and
400 heads?

I didn't use them in my Cleveland heads because I used the graphite, press on
type.

The rubber ones I have are yours if you want them. I guess it would be easy
enough to buy some locally where you are though.

If you find one beat and it need the parts you have, I'd go for it, but
late 70's ford trucks are getting pricey for even junk. If it is a short
time beater, I'd look a for an early to mid 80's 150 4 X 4. They are at
the point in time were they are too old to be worth anything and to
young to be worth anything :-). Keep it for a year and you could prob
sell it for what you bought it for.

Subject: A GROUP OF RECENT SUBJECTS
Date: Sat, 30 Sep 2000 14:29:49 GMT

   I'd like to post an experience I witnessed once with my father that can
tie up a whole lot of recent subjects: In regards to the izziu that ran
without oil - and honest advertizing - valve stem seals, etc.  Back in the
late 70's he and my mom had a 68 Falcon Wagon with a 289.  One cold winter
day it just up and died on my mom.  After finding the distrib. wasn't
turning - he pulled the distrib and found the pin sheared.  We threw it on
the hay trailor and took it to a friends heated shop 21 miles away.  After
pulling the oli pan he found a peice of the valve seal in the oil pump.  How
in the 7734 it got past the screen was beyond him then, and now with
experience myself, still wonder the same.  Who is it looking for rubber
valve seals because thiers are plastic and broke?
   They start life as rubber - after hundreds of heatings and coolings they
turn brittle and appear plastic in the bottom of the oil pan.
He and David spent the whole night changing the oil pump and valve stem
seals, cleaning out the oil pan, looking at all rod and mains, reassmeblng
it, timing, etc.  That morning (was still dark) we hopped in her to drive
home.  About half a mile from Davids we began hearing what dad said was a
bearing tick.  I didn't know - him being a former Winged Sprint car driver
was always right about such things but this time he second guessed himself
because they had done such a thurough job cleaning it all out, and the
bearings had looked fine.
  We made it to about 1/2 mile from home when she seized up.  It was the
main bearings.  No oil.  Getting to the old addage - more is better -when
they replaced the shear pin in the distributor - they put a stronger one in.
 Somehow - ANOTHER peice of seal got in the pump again -the pin didn't
shear - the oil pump shaft twisted off - and we kept on a going until it
could go no more.
  My point is - if you're happy and feel confident in Slick 50, STP, and/or
any particular brand of oil and what they say it will, it might, it should,
it could possibly do for you - then stick with it.  But that TV commercial
for - I can't remember what product it is - where they have that Inline
engine sitting there running and hosing it down with a hose, people "oohing"
and "aahing" - DOESN'T IMPRESS ME AT ALL.  Sure it will.  Would previeously
treated with or without with anything.  Water's keeping it cool. Water is
surely even acting as an oil flowing constantly.  Same with the commercial
where "We drained the oil from these engines...."  Yeah - saw it myself that
night long long ago.  Sure they'll all keep running to a point.  I KNOW -
HAD IT INGRAINED IN ME THAT COLD MORNING LONG AGO - BECAUSE GUESS WHO HAD TO
WALK HOME AND GET THE TRACTOR AND LOG CHAIN.......You know what I'm talking
about there Rich.

I did a lot of research before I bought mine.  Just curious about what brand
you have and what style?  Sounds like and above ground, two post type?  What
safety supports?

I've found that you can work very comfortably with a 12' ceiling but I would
hesitate to use a lift in anything lower than that because you would have to
measure every vehicle for safe lift height to prevent hitting the trusses.
All my vehicles go full height but my friend's van with handycapper top had
to stop at 64" but was still easy to work on at that height.  (just had to
duck more :-)) It's still really great for such things as brake jobs and
tire rotation and other, non full lift functions though........really great
:-)  I don't know if you've noticed but this is exciting news for me.  I
really enjoy hearing about other's success in this area because it just adds
so much to the joy of working on the vehicles :-)  If this is your hobby
it's worth the outlay......way worth it :-)  I actually designed my barn
with this in mind but wanted 14' ceiling.  Building codes wouldn't allow it
in a residential area so he let me fudge at 12' which was still slightly
over code for my area.

Thanks to all that responded.  I now have a 79 bronco with all the

clean most of the others free of rust, scrape clean the fuse box of
corrosion, replace a few bulbs, and clean the brake switch.  I'm sure most
of my interior problems lie in the fuse box (fuel gauge, dome light, etc..)

To all who don't know already, I have acquired a 79 Bronco with a GM 14 Bolt
rear.  I've taken it apart and found the drum is saturated with gear oil.
(this rear has the inner hub with eight bolts that need to be removed; in
order to take the axle shaft out; in order to take the drum off)  I'm
assuming that the metal gasket leaked, but am not certain.  There was a
bunch of blue, rubber like sealant that was placed between the gasket and
the drum.  I don't know how similar the 14 bolt is to say a Dana 70, but
would anyone be able to help me, or send me in the proper direction to where
I might find help for diagnosing?

They are likely to have GM 14 bolt knowledge and they'll probably
have a higher level of interest then many of the FTE users.

Later,

That could be the case as well.  I don't know how to replace the bearings
though.  I was pretty frustrated at this point in the disassembly and didn't
look at them in detail, but it looks as if they are forged in there (even
though they are lose)?  Thanks for the advice, I'll take better notice
tomorrow.

What about bearings? My 9" diff did that and it was the bearings on the
shaft. I have no clue about any other axle except an 8 or 9" so I'm just
guessing =P

To all who don't know already, I have acquired a 79 Bronco with a GM 14 Bolt
rear.  I've taken it apart and found the drum is saturated with gear oil.
(this rear has the inner hub with eight bolts that need to be removed; in
order to take the axle shaft out; in order to take the drum off)  I'm
assuming that the metal gasket leaked, but am not certain.  There was a
bunch of blue, rubber like sealant that was placed between the gasket and
the drum.  I don't know how similar the 14 bolt is to say a Dana 70, but
would anyone be able to help me, or send me in the proper direction to where
I might find help for diagnosing?

Thanks,

-bob-

I used my 71 F100 (FTE content) to pickup a complete Mustang II front
end for the upcoming '56 Ford P/U that I'd like to build.  Now, to find
the pickup!

Id go get a book for say a 73-87 Chevy that will cover that rearend.  The
info you need should be there.  As for the rest of the book, burn it into a
sacrificial fire, and say a prayer to the mighty blue oval.  That should help
appease the gods for the 14 bolt under your Bronco. ....
