Been losing coolant from my '77 E150 for a little while now.  Maybe a quart
every two or three weeks.  Havent been able to find it.  Was changing the
starter on Saturday and figured darn it, I was gonna find that leak!

Been wanting to buy a radiator pressure tester, but they're about a hundred
bucks.  Got brainstorming with dad and we came up with a working substitute
for 99 cents!

Bought a 5/8" flush tee (99 cents at Autozone) for the heater hose line.
Drilled a 5/16" hole (I think) and installed a metal bolt-in valve stem I
had laying around (had to grind the base of the stem down a bit so the cap
would seat correctly onto the tee) into the cap so the stem was sticking out
the top.  Installed the tee in the heater line and attached my kids bicycle
tire pump to the stem sticking out the cap.  Carefully pumped it up to 15psi
(the rating on the radiator cap) and the leak was immediately found (bypass
hose).  Took the tee out.  You could just leave the tee in if you bought two
tees and just screwed the un-modified cap on when you were done.  I'll try
to take a picture of it if anyone wants to see it...

Crude?  yes.
Cheap? Hell yes! (more gas money for the van and the Lincoln!)

We also surmised you could probably pressurize the system through the
overflow nipple on the radiator, but you would have to gut a radiator cap -
just need the top seal and a piece of fuel line with the tire valve hose
clamped in the end (you'd have to cut the base off the valve so the stem
would fit inside the fuel line).  Clamp the fuel line to the overflow and
pressurize the system through the valve stem...

Anyone else made some cheap tool that did the job?

Oops, at first reading, I thought you said it was a myth that the M

Thanks for the quick reply.  Does your book show a weight for the 302?  My
'90 F150 has 210K on it and I am planning a replacement engine for the 302.
I am kinda leaning toward the 400 just for the weight savings.

Don't understand!!!  Are you saying that you can turn the crank with a
wrench(or something), but it won't turn with the starter????  Need more
details of what it will and will not do!!!!
Can you turn it a complete round, or does it stop at a given point??

Good idea. Be careful about slapping your gauge on there. Moisture will
deteriorate most gauges. Ask any farmer about checking the air in the rear
tractor tires. The valve stem must be up.

I never heard that it weighed less, just approximately the same.  When you
factor in the extra metal in the 400 (for the raised deck,)  I think you
will find it weighs about 575-600 lbs, only 40-65 lbs less than the
460.  If you replace the stock 400 motor with a 460 with alum intake and
heads, then the 460 will weigh less.

Now I have and like my 400, and am not planning a 460 swap, but there isn't
really much weight difference between the two (50 lbs or so.)

Well Car Craft puts the 460 at 720 lbs and the 400 at 575 so we're closer to
150. You're right about the aluminum heads since there aren't any readily
available for the 335 series but the manifolds can be replaced with aluminum
on both.

Subject: Re: 4 bbl on a 300

All this talk on 300's and 4 bbls, just thought Id toss something into the
mix.  My bros 84 F-150 has the 300, 4 barrel, dual headers, and a bit of a
cam.  The head was milled to boost compression.  It has the 3+OD tranny, and
2.7? gears in the rear.  Stock tire size is very small to say the least.
Were runnin 31'' dunlops.  To say the least the bottem end is hurt by those
tires.  Anyhow.  Now you know how that truck sits.  My dad has an 88 E-350
w/460 in it.  Its always empty (so the ride always beats ya to death) It has
3.73 gears and 31 inch Sport kings.  Last night I was in the van, following
Josh in his 84, And we ended up side by side at a stop light.  Well boys will
be boys, and it was the far out skirt of town, so we saw the green glow and
dropped the hammers on the two fords.  He not only beat me out of the hole,
he walked away ALL thea way down the street.  I NEVER started to gain on him.
I was blown away.  I knew we had built a good runner, but had no idea he
could walk over an FI 460 the way he did.  It was awesome.  Ive decided I
want another truck.  Basically, I want Tony Marinos truck, but I dont have
the $$ right now.  Soon though.  Im really thing that 300 would make an
awesome hill climber......

At the risk of getting the "off topic" list cops enraged...

I was at the local shopping mall (auto dismantler) last week picking up an
exhaust manifold for my E150 ($5, how can you beat that?).  On my way out,
the cashier said "go take a look at the J p in the parking lot".  I did,
and as I was looking, the owner came out and popped the hood for me...

It had a 6 cylinder Cummins turbodiesel in it!  He lengthened the engine
compartment 7 inches.  Awesome job.

He started it up, dropped it in low and hammered the throttle.  It crept at
maybe 1 mph.  Now that must be a crawler!  If you're in the Sacramento area
and come across a yellow CJ with Cummins nameplates on it, it's the real
deal!

I know it isn't a Ford, but I thought it was pretty darn cool...

Subject: Blown head gasket test
Date: Mon, 16 Oct 2000 10:46:15 -0700

Told a buddy about my cheapo cooling system pressure tester and he came back
with this...

Easy way to check for blown head gasket:
1.  Fill up cooling system to neck of radiator (allow it to burp).
2.  Remove water pump drive belt (this test won't work of the pump is driven
by a timing belt).
3.  Crank engine over.  Bubbles in the radiator - head gasket leak.
4.  Pull plugs one at a time and crank engine after each plug is removed.
When the bubbles stop, the affected cylinder is identified.

Neat.  (at least I thought so)

Might want to think about using red rather than  black, the red is hi temp
and will stand the heat  better.   Just a thought if you use it on exhaust.
