Good point, Dave. I guess if you expected it, you wouldn't need insurance
against it, huh? I've always told my wife to kill the car destroy the tires
and wheels, do whatever it takes to get to safety if at all possible. Henry
made lots of cars, but I have only one wife. (resist the urge to take off on

I haven't been following this thread real close, so ignore me if you would
like... Try a known good coil. If the primary voltages are all correct and
you know you aren't getting spark, then the secondary voltage is the
problem. Just an idea...

To let you guys know I got a set of shop manuals and owners manuals for
both of my trucks a couple of weeks ago.  I got them from LLoyds Auto
Literature here is their site http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.lloydsautolit.com/.  For
everything including sipping it cost me around 350.00, the 74 shop
manuals, both owner's manuals and all but one of the 77 shop manuals are
all original and one is a reprint.  All in all I think it was a great
deal, the people where awesome and they even 3 day aired the stuff to me
no extra charge.

Each state (or two) has its own branch of AAA, and the membership
requirements and benefits vary slightly.  I know that when I first joined,
there was no minimum requirement for Plus membership.  This is for AAA
Carolinas (N and S) and was when I first joined 10 years ago.  Incidentally
my membership lapsed for two years (Mom forgot her Christmas present) and
when she called to renew, they said that If I had called (fortunately I
didn't have to in that period) they would have helped me out, and let me
renew after the fact.

If you have to suffer through 1 year of regular membership that's not so
bad, and I have never had more than 3 service calls in 1 year.

BTW, I am not a teenager living at home, I just have a nice mom.

I just bought a regular membership for me and SWMBO ($70).  Hopefully I will
never have to use it.  Don't know if this is peculiar to CA, but you are
allowed 4 calls per year, per member.  After that, there is a "modest"
service charge...

Rich- several companies still show a cradle type engine adapter for this
conversion. (also 289-302-351w & 351-400m and 429-460 ) I think
Trans-Dapt (sp?) makes them. I used one on a 64 292 3 speed to 302 / C-4
conversion and it worked out real nice. They also have a transmission
crossmember since you'll need one if you go to a "side mount" set-up.  I
think AutoKrafters, LMC ,JC Whitney, John's F-Funhundreds, and a few
others handle these same kits. Prices vary, but AutoKrafters is probably
the lowest.  Good luck, Phil ( 64 F-100 351w...now)

Subject: Re: Oil Bath vs. Paper Element

 I was there, saw it, lived it, got thru it. Wish is
correct about the air/oil filter thing when it came to
Mt St. Helens ash. But it wasn't just the Bobcats that
got shut down. It was EVERYTHING that had a filter
that was of the paper element variety. And I do mean
everything. If it had an internal combustion engine &
a paper element it was under 'ash seige' if you will.

I didn't live in the 'blast zone' but was well within
the 'ash falling at anytime of the day or night' zone.
I remember that a lot of smart folks drove a beater
until the ash cleared enough to drive the regular
vehicle again without risking internal engine damage
on the good vehicles. Some converted over to an oil
bath or an oil bath/paper combo. A lot of stupid folks
got po'd and simply took OFF the aircleaner and paid
the penalty. Which was often hysterical if you were a
bystander.

The point is that the oil bath cleaners worked quite
well although they weren't foolproof. I'm convinced
some ash still made it's way into the engine because
it was of such a fine variety of dust that it simply
'hung' in the air for long, long periods of time. In
fact, scientists said that the major releases of ash
could circle the globe for months or even a YEAR or
two on the air currents. Spank me!

 Another interesting point to ponder was that some
engines got just the right amount of ash intake to
actually clean up or 'de-carbonize' the combustion
areas in each cylinder and actually ran BETTER than
they did before. Lends some credibility to the 'Bon
Ami' cleaner down the intake to seat the rings trick.
Of course most engines probably took more damage than
were ever helped but hey... had to drive something
down the road thru the ash clouds to get to work. And
I'm sure the local engine rebuild shops didn't mind
either. My old man simply changed the oil and replaced
the filters 3-4 times as often. Changes were not
uncommon during the week after I woke up on a day and
found a new 1 inch thick layer of ash on the ground...

Jeff,
This is a great carb to learn, and worth getting the strip kit and manual.
Temporarily hang your vacuum gauge in the cab so you can get an idea really
what's going on when you are driving.  Note the vacuum when it starts
pinging. Cross this info with
which step up springs you have using in the carb to determine which mode the
carb is operating in (cruise vs. power).
You can also use this info to get a rough idea of what your vacuum advance
is doing and make adjustments accordingly.

PS. That's become my favorite carb by far.

I bought a '78 F150, 400 CID, long bed from a friend out of state. The truck
is great! I do have a problem..... it starts fine when cold, but, when I get
to where I'm going and do what has to be done..... the truck will not
start... if I do get it started it sounds off? If I let it sit for an hour
or so it will run great. I've replaced ignition module, coil, plugs, wires,
rotor, cap, ground wire from the battery..... Battery checks fine as well as
the alternator. I'm at a loss, the only thing I can think of is that I got a
bad ignition module...... I do have a new distributor to put in, but, I
don't know if I really need it. Any suggestions?

Wow!  I had bypassed this thread due to the fact that my truck is a 62 so I
have little interest in 69 trucks.  HOWEVER, I have a 68 T-Bird with the
same engine in it.  I am going through the same hell that you are having
replaced this and that, though I haven't gone the full rebuild yet.  Last
night I was tearing all the front gear off of the engine in preparation of
replacing the timing chain when someone's question popped into my mind.
They asked if my damper could have slipped.  So out came the #1 plug and the
screw driver I had in the hole just kept coming out as I passed the TDC mark
on the damper.  IT finally stopped at about 20 degrees ATDC. So while I
thought that I have been setting my timing at 6 degrees BTDC, it has
actually been around 26!  I'm surprised it ran at all.  I don't know if
anyone else has suggested it to you, but it might be worth checking out.
Mine will soon be on the way to Damper Dudes for a rebuild.

don't need to get into it much, I just think it would be great to have the

Sounds close to what my dads 78 F150 with a 351M was doing a while back.
Turned out to be the ignition pick up coil inside the distributor.  When it
was hot it was getting a lot of resistance and would not start but if we let
it cool down the resistance would drop and it would start right up.  We
replaced the distributor because it had a lot of miles on it any way and it
has not had that problem since.

Picked up an interval wiper switch and timer from an 83 F150 on the weekend.

I can't see why earlier switches wouldn't work as well. It's the little bonuses

>Snip<
Anybody else out there play with this kind of combo that can offer some
"been there" advise?  Like I said before - I have never played with
carburators - Anybody fine tune one of these eldebrocks?  By that I mean
play with the plethera of various primary and secondary / metering rods /
step up springs they give the diagram in the owners manual?  >SNIP<

I set up a couple of these carbs with the Carter Zip Kit and an instruction
book from Edelbrock.  There is a diagram with the Edelbrock book that shows
the different ranges of lean and rich with the power and cruise ranges.
Followed instructions and things went well.  I purchased both from PAW-was
well worth the $36 for the kit.

>I did it. I went to the AACA show at Hershey and bought another truck.
>That makes three total. Now two are for sale.

I sold one (actually I am parting it out). It is the '68 F250 camper
special. I sold the motor for $1,100. It is a recently re-built 390. The
best part about this deal (from a marriage standpoint) is that this
truck-pickin party does not take place in my yard.

The rest of the parts are available (except the windshield, power steering,
and a few other bits). Send me a message off-line if you need something.
I'll publish a list as I yank, but right now I am taking orders. I've got
some really pretty F250 hood badges!

The '72 F250 camper special with the Onan Generator is for sale as well.
360, C6, power disk brakes. Price is around $1500. It comes with lots of
spare parts! Truck is in Charlottesville, VA. Parts are in Northern
Virginia, but I can put them all in one pile for you.

Sorry for the unabashed commercialism, but it does have lots of FTE content!

glass, cherry two-tone blue and white paint.

When you say it won't start, does it crank over slowly or at a normal speed,
just won't actually catch ... big difference in the problems that you could
be facing.

I saw a '78 at the neighbors with a 'high output' heater.  What is the
difference between that and my normal heater in my '73?  Both are Customs
with no A/C.  Does it have a bigger heater core?  bigger fan?  Is it really ....
