You should look at the tech article on the FTE web site.  It explains what
the parts look like, where they are, and how they go together.  I was told
that the interval timer and switch are the same from '73-'96, direct plug-in
swap.  So, yes, the '83 will fit.

That's what I was thinking about doing, sticking a high output heater core
into my box.  Guess if I get real serious about it, I'll have to swap the
whole heater box.

Thanks guys.

I have used a couple of these online parts stores.
I ordered some stuff from carparts.com and it came

I also use wrenchhead.com seems to be cheaper.

any comments?  of course all I order is Ford and Lincoln

I would add that the FMX is a cast iron case.  If you have a two-piece case
but it is aluminum then that is a C4.

Hi Don and List,

I've decided to come out of the shadows of the list digest (appropriately on
Friday the 13th) and see if I can help out some fellow truck owners.  No
more being just a lurker.

First a little background information.  I joined this list a few years ago
and I use it as a good source of information.  It seems that everytime I
need to do something to my truck, someone else is asking the same question
and the answer is there when I turn on my computer.  One year ago I put a
460 into my 1979 F150 4x4, and I have to say, reading all the suggestions
and tips in this list made it go a lot quicker than I was planning on.  So
before I get too far, a big "Thank You" to everyone.

Don, I live in south-east Wisconsin.  What area are you in?  Depending on
your location, I might have a couple of suggestions for you.

And now I have one question that I have not seen posted before.  I am
looking at another truck.  It is a 1979 F150 (5-lug wheels front and rear)
4x4 Supercab.  My question is this.  Do the 1/2 ton Supercabs have leaf
spring front suspensions?  This truck does, I always heard that all 1/2 tons
came with front coil springs.

Thanks.

Ok list  looking for parts so when I start the winter project I have them.
wanted a intake for my 62 f100
want to put a 4v Holley on it this winter when I go through the motor. Also
any one have a cam not used that they want to part with. would rather pay

Subject: Re: Resistive wire
Date: Fri, 13 Oct 2000 18:00:54 -0700

You need to read it at the coil.  The numbers he gave indicate no resistance
in one case and probably 8-9v static in the other case (7.2v), neither of
which sounds like a stock run voltage for a points system or dura spark
either.  Voltage at the coil with engine running should be around 5-6v if
there is a stock wire or ballast resistor in place.  During cranking the
coil receives battery voltage but will still show a voltage drop due to the
shorting of the coil through the points as they close so what you see is
"Average" voltage which is the average voltage between coil saturation and
dump to ground or points open and closed.

It would not surprise me at all to discover that there is a wide voltage
range here that is acceptable so 7v may be stock in run mode too but the
book calls for 6-8 static, that is no load or in test mode with points open
etc. or wires disconnected from the coil to prevent a load. (at least that's
how I remember it).  The value he is stating is with load which means the
static voltage would be higher or out of this range.  As you say though it
does indicate some kind of resistance in the circuit which could be as
simple as a bad connection somewhere too.

What I discovered playing with my ballast resistor on the electric choke was
that it made about 2v difference at the input side when the resistor was
loaded or shorted which I presume is primarily due to the input wire size
and voltage drop due to higher amperage and heat build up etc....Same
problem many are having with headlight intensity, the input wires are too
small to handle the full load the headlights put on them so the bulbs only
receive a portion of battery voltage instead of their rated 12v.  Try this
some time......pull the plug on the head lights, both sides, turn on the
headlights and measure the voltage at the plug, to ground.  Now plug them
back in leaving a small wire at the test terminal you just tested (or you
may be able to get a probe on the exposed terminal of the head light) so you
can get a probe on it and test the voltage again with them on.

Another test you can try is to pull the wire off the electric choke and
check the voltage with key in run position, to ground and then plug it back
in and test the terminal on the choke housing  (where the wire plugs in) and
note the difference.  I was surprised how much difference it made with a
load.

Write me back here on the list with the results and we will all be edified
by the info :-)

This really demonstrates that the mixture/timing thing is much more complex
than a few words can describe.  On the one hand a lean mixture causes over
heating of the combustion chamber.  OTOH, lean mixtures require more advance
but if it's too lean you can't advance it or it knocks, in which case  you
need to richen the mixture which requires less advance but in this case it
allows you to advance it even more........???  Go figure :-)

This paradox can be explained but the physics is a complex interaction of
several conflicting chains.  NASCAR guys who race with restrictor plates
know all about holed pistons and burned exhaust valves due to letting off
the gas too fast which leans out the mixture big time.  I personally find
this phenomenon fascinating :-)

Now throw in a little compression and we add yet another chain of
events..........Extend the over lap of the cam and it goes
away.........Richen the mixture and you can run more advance.......Huh?
Well ya caint argue with success I alus say :-)  It may not always make
sense on the surface but if it works there is a real, scientific, physical
explaination for it and the phenomenon can be reproduced over and over again
or prevented from occuring if you know why it happened :-)

Refresh my memory.....why does a lean mixture cause over heating?

List
As most of you know, list member Jeff Hansen (The Muny Pit) is in the Navy
and is underway as I write. After this last work up, his boat will be headed
over to this same dreaded area.   As you know, A Navy destroyer was attacked
yesterday by terrorist resulting in several casualties.   As an ex sailor
(EW), I feel a special loss myself.  Here is an abrieviated Email from him
which he gave permission to be posted to the list:

 No matter how big the world is, the Navy ties everyone together into one
family and no matter what goes on around the world, no matter how many
times you move in the Navy - you will always see someone, or hear about
someone you've know from your travels around the world.  Andy Triplett and
I were roommates while stationed in Okinawa, 1989.  He and I drank many a
beer together hanging out our balconey watching flight ops on the flight
line not 200 yards from our barrecks.  He changed rates five years ago and

After reading the posts regarding carparts.com I decided to check them out,
and could not find listings for my vehicle (66 F250). Tried wrenchhead and
Whitney as well, still nothing.  What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks

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?

The C6 has intergal bellhousing..  the FMX has seperate bellhousing
(torque converter housing)...
