you could get $1200 bucks just for that D60 sittin under your front end
alone around here.  Some one must have swapped in that 460 because you
couldn't get a 460 in a 4X4 in 79.

Sounds like you got a hell of  a deal.  Those kinda rigs are hard to find
for a decent price here in Northern CA.

Subject: [61-79-list] New '79 F-350 in the stable!


Well gang I just put a deposit down on a '79 F-350 4x4 that I saw in my
local paper.  I pick it up Saturday AM.  It seems to be exactly what I was
looking for to supplement my current Bronco project.  It's 4-wheel drive
so if I don't get my Bronco done in time for winter I'll have a backup
plan.  Its got a 460 with a C6 in it so if I ever decide to get rid of it
I can rebuild the engine and swap it into my Bronco.

It also has a stake body type flat-bed conversion instead of a standard
pickup bed.  The bed floor is like 4' off the ground.  It has a rusty
roll-cage and dual stack exhaust pipes behind the cab.  Its also got
relatively new 35" BFG AT's.  It seemed to be in good shape with a
possible clunk in the driveline when shifting Drive to Reverse in 4-Hi and
4-Lo.  I'm thinking a u-joint in the front d-shaft.  Its not currently
inspected (last inspected in '98) but I'm buying it from the second owner
who's had it since 1984.  Its got some brake problems so they will need to
be addressed before it gets inspected and a few other minor issues as
well.  And, get this, he's throwing in all the spare parts he's
accumulated over the years, a half rebuilt 351M with high-rise intake,
spare C6 tranny, a set of 4-40" tires, the front steering shaft that runs
between the two hubs (I don't know what its called) :-(, and whatever else
he's got laying around.  I'm getting the whole lot for $1200.  Is that a
decent deal?  I figure that if I parted this out the parts alone could be
worth close to that price.

So what axles does a '79 F-350 4x4 have in it?

What else can you tell me about the '79 F-350?  I'm thinking it'll be
emissions exempt since its GVWR is like 8550 or something like that.  Is
that right?

Oh well gotta go.  Just thought I'd share my latest purchase with ya'll
and see what the general consensus is regarding it.  So is it at least a
decent buy or did I get hood-winked.

I've got a 64 F-100 that will be stock appearing, but the running gear will
be far  from stock.  (if I ever get it done)  I can't imagine getting
through it without the help of this list just the way it is. There's plenty
of help here if you just ask. There's too much in common with the later
models to go off onto yet another list. I think a 61-66 "stock / restoration
only" list would be pretty lonely. Course, it wouldn't take long to read
your mail either. :-)   If you have questions pertaining to the earlier
years, speak up. There aren't many of us here anyway.  Just be sure to use
your spell checker, huh Dennis?
 Also, I was reading in a car mag yesterday, that according to Yahoo there
are over 3700 Ford related sites and only about 900 total for GM's products.
Kinda neat ain't it ?

Yes Optima batteries are good. I plan on investing in one of them myself. But then again, I will be demanding more from my electrical system than most people here (multiple amplifier stereo system). They don't give out any fumes, and are completely sealed so they won't leak.

Right now I am using a Champion Subzero 900 CCA battery though. Cost me about $60, and it does pretty good in the cold Minnesota winters.

I can second that.  Again, tho (intentional just to get your goats) both
my '62's are far from stock restoration projects, as far as the engines
go, anyway.  My wife asked me yesterday if I were going to put power
steering on my Unibody...Instantly I started wondering, "Does she want
to drive my 'baby'?"  I already have to trick her to get to drive the
D*r*ng*.  Anyway, I immediately thought of this group and all the help I
could get if I were to want power steering.  Then I thought again and
decided I'd better keep it the way it is.  I need all the exercise I can
get.  I can't imagine how hard to steer the Fordillac will be.  But by
the time I get that on the road, I'll probably want power steering...

I'm taking the suggestion made in several replies to the recent query made
to this list by Dan:

Are there any 61-66 truck owners out there?

Ya' get what you put in. I've put this question into the list and a few
others in the last two years and have yet to get a response. But I'll put
it in again.

I have a '63 F-100. It has a 223 straight-six engine. I am thinking about
replacing the carburator. It's old. I rebuilt it. It's leaky. I want to
know what people have done along these lines. What carburators are there?
For what applications? (Say I want to hot-rod the engine. Or say I want a
good economical carb.) I'm not a mechanic. I don't know what the options
are. I'm looking for some good advice about this. Can anyone out there
supply it?

Thanks,
David

My old work truck had nothing but battery troubles.
It has to run the following following equip at idle:
headlights,rotating beacon,six compartment lights,two spotlights,
three radios and on occasion a winch.
We have a 100 amp alternator and dual batteries on it.A set of batteries
would only last about six months.Four years ago we put dual Optimas in
it
and they are still in it.

Seems like as good a time as any to jump in.  I am new to the list, just
purchased a 1966 F250.  300" six, three speed, and a utility bed.  It is
pretty strait and stock (other than the bed) and runs, but needs a little
work to be my daily driver, which is my plan for it.

Couple of questions:  The brake master cylinder feeds in to a unit bolted to
the inner fender with the previous owner called a hydro-vac.  Doesn't look
like the ones I have seen before.  Was this a stock item on the 66 3/4 ton?
As the closest item to the M/C, I assume it is bled last?
And, a speedometer question.  My speedo needle sits on about 95 at a stop,
and works it's way toward zero when moving.  How do I fix this?

Dan,
I've heard a lot of good things about Interstate.  I happen to have one in
the 97 Thunderbird I just bought (11,000 miles) so I hope to find out.  I
work with someone here who has gotten incredible life out of his batteries.
His method is simple:
1. use only clean distilled water in them
2. Use a hydrometer to monitor the specific gravity of the electrolyt in the
cells.
3. If the electrolyte becomes dilluted from adding water add more H2SO4.

seenit with a few others so I cant jsut say it's a Die-Hard problem.
Personally I think it's a south thing, the eat down here tends to take a
battery to an early grave. Knock on wood, Ive got 3 years on the car's and
it's still going strong. Had to put a Delco (From KMART, it's where I was) in

Thanks guy's for the responces.  Jeff Hansen brought his Muny Pit by today.
The voltages measured at the coil + terminal were as follows:

Key on engine off, points closed  7 volts....  When I hooked up a jumper
wire from the batt to the coil, the voltage read 12 v

Key on engine off points open 12 v

Cranking the engine over 9.9 volts

Engine running 10.8 - 11 volts

Jeff had a ballast resistor which we could have hooked up, but based on
these voltages, I think his wiring harness already has the resistor wire
installed.  Am I all wet here?  I'm pretty sure the cranking voltage is ok
(9.6 v min if I remember correctly) but what about the others.  Tying to
find another point type ignition to compare voltages around here is proving
difficult.

My friend and neighbor Levi just picked up a Bronco ('83?) with a
300-6.  It has a nifty Offenhauser manifold with a Holley (I
know--terrible for off-road) 4V.  It seems to run nicely around town.  I
think he said the carb was 390 cfm, which doesn't seem too much for a
Ford six (a 300, at least).  I'm sure someone will have a response to
this suggestion.  All you have to do is say "modify" and it seems to
attract more people than "restore."  I guess I'm guilty of that, also,
though.

Good luck.  I'm always amazed at what you can get out of one of those
Ford sixes...

I'm fixing to put my Holley 4160 (390cfm) on my 240 to go with my Clifford
intake =P

Thanks for sharing that Marty!  I probably never would have thought of it
and taken everything apart 3 times.

My 62 F-250 is the same with room for a monster battery.  The guy I bought
it from worked for Caterpillar
and had a Cat battery that took as much room as it could.  If the starter
would hold up, it would get you to town without the engine even firing.  I
wonder if the under the cab was only on unibodies?
