I am told that this is what it takes(as it is what I plan to do with my wifes '76 Flareside):

Any of the earlier AOD's that shift without the aid of a computer(shift strictly by valve
body, Governor, Vacuum diaphram etc)..

Any AOD from a 302 or 351W will bolt up to your 351W.  you may have to replace the
crossmember that the tranny mounts to and change your driveshaft and yoke.  Don't
know about the linkage and column, but I'd venture to say this could be conjectured up
from some later model pickup that came with AOD and made to work.
Everything else should just be a matter of changing it out.  I have all the pieces that
I've been led to believe is all I need, but this is a winter project and I'm in no hurry.

Subject: OD versus direct drive
Date: Fri, 20 Oct 2000 08:02:26 -0500


OK Guys/Gals..  Here is the theory of OD's.

A 355:1 rear with C6(or any direct tranny) is final drive of 3.5 turns of the
drive shaft to one turn of the tires...
A 355:1 rear with an OD is 3.55X.69 (or whatever your OD ratio is and most factory
are .69) is final drive of 2.4495(or stated as 2.45)..
Theoretically that is about 30% better, but you will never see this in gas mileage.
Several things cause this some of which are added gears to pull and added load
to the engine for the taller gear ratio..

If you were getting 20 mpg with a direct and installed a .69 OD then
theoretically you should get (20 divided by .69=28.9mpg)...  Ain't gonna happen.
Don't get me wrong..  I'm a big advocate of OD's..  They just ain't going to get
you what you would expect from doing the math.. What they do do is let you
run a much lower(higher numerically) rear ratio and still get good mileage and
have a lot more lower end grunt or quicker to get up to speed..
A 4.11 and .069 figures to a final drive ratio of 2.8359(expressed as 2.8)..
That is a pretty good final drive ratio..

I am really sorry you feel this way.  When one of the candidates has said
that the combustion engine is the "biggest threat to this world" everyone
that drives (which includes US ford truckers), should sit up and take
notice.  And the list of things that he plans on doing to rid this world of
that "threat," two buck gas is only the start.  Our way of life, our trucks,
are threatened. I will adhere to the rules, but I don't totally agree with
them.  And again keep up the GREAT site.  No other ford site I have seen

A few of the lists have had political content posted lately.

Do not use the lists for posting political content unless it
directly affects our Ford truck hobbies, and then only after
forwarding it to me for review first.

Discussing on-topic political content, such as crusher laws,
emission laws, highway safety, regulations, off-road laws,
etc. are acceptable.  Discussion of these topics requesting
members review pending bills and lobbying efforts should be
forwarded to me first.

Discussion of political candidates is off limits.

Sorry to take this stand, but its been abused lately, especially
with the pending election around the corner.  I don't care if
its conservative or liberal, it doesn't really belong here.
If you feel you must talk about it, use the General Conversation
forum on our web site where very little is considered off
topic.

Thanks,

Actually you guys keep comparing driveshaft speed to wheel speed, that's always
gonna be the final drive ratio ... you need to compare engine speed to tire
speed ... when the tranny's in 1:1 the engine is turning 3.55x as many rpm's
as the wheels ... when the tranny's in .67:1 (my 5spd :)  then its only turning
about the same speed as the tires ...

True ... but you will see some increase, it won't be the total ratio difference
...

Yep, I had it backwards. Yesterday was a long day. I don't know about the
mileage as my C6 is in my pickup and my OD is in a Towncar. Too many other

These may bolt up, but you won't like the results. All early over drives
with no electronics had very high failure rates, both initially and after
rebuilds. The general's trucks from 1981 through 1986 had a 98% failure
rate. (I owned an 82 Suburban. I averaged 25K per transmission rebuild.
AAMCO paid for all but the first.) Ford's may not be quite as high, but it
is not good. IMHO, avoid the non electronic ODs.

In any given application, the engine has to spin the
same amount of internals regardless of what gear
the transmission is in.  It is the engine load and RPM
that you make it go that determines your fuel mileage.

I suppose if you do a lot of high-speed driving on
the interstates and such, an overdrive will help quite
a bit, since for any given speed in its highest gear,
the overdrive will allow the engine to run at a slightly
lower RPM (thus less cfm fuel/air through the engine).

In-city driving is a lot of stop-and-go, and generally
under these conditions, the trasmission does not use
overdrive enough to make a significant difference; in
fact, if the OD transmission weighs more and you do a
lot of stop and go type driving, your mileage may get
worse.

I would have to say that it depends a lot on *how*
you drive, whether an OD will give you any real
benefits.  For cruising around town, I doubt that it
would make enough difference to really matter, but
if you routinely drive the freeways at 60 for a good
number of miles, then an OD likely will give you
noticeable improvement in the time between fuel fill-ups.

See my post to Josh. This is all well and good, but my original post dealt
with equal final drive ratios, not equal differential ratios.

Actually, I would love to have a 79 F100 2X4 short wide with a powertrain
like the one in my Towncar. 302, EFI, AOD. I would probably stick with the

almost complete cause my dad took the steering column out, and the dash
insert is gone (it got broke lose in the wreck).  Somebody in its past had

All of the OD trans suffered growing pains during the first few years, both
Ford and GM.  There have been many improvements made to make them last like
they should that can be used in the earlier transmissions.  Even the
electronic E4OD's had LOTS of problems when they were first introduced.
There are quite a few guys on the early Bronco list with swapped in AOD's
and 700R4's  (non electronic) that continue to provide great service under
extreme four wheeling and racing conditions.

I did the one in dads 75.  Its really not hard at all. The only problem I had
was regarding the shifter forks.  You need a long punch to drive out the roll
pins, and a whole lot of patience when its time to put them back in.  Make
sure your rebuild kit also has the small parts kit, or it wont have any of
the thrust bearings.  These were toast in dads.  I also had to make my own
little pins that hold the thrusts from rotating, as the ones in dads were
almost toast.  I used a small piece of tungsten welding rod that was the
right diameter.  If you dont have a press, heres how to get the taper bearing
cups R&R'd in the large gear.  To remove the old ones, use your gas wrench,
and get the bearing cup cherry red in 4 spots, then let it cool.  It will
fall right out provided you pull straight.  Clean the gear thoroughly.  Place
the new roller bearing cups in the freezer. (also keep in mind that bearings
are matched, so keep the right bearing with the right cup by marking it).
After the cups have been in the freezer about a day or so, put the gear in
the oven at around 250 degrees.  When its good and hot you should be able to
drop the bearing in.  Do one at a time, and make sure the bearing is seated
by spinning it in the bore till it stops.  Then use one of your old cups and
a hammer and gently tap the cup to be sure its completely bottomed out.  This
saves for any visit to the machine shop.

If you run into anyprobs, just gimme a shout, I did it without problems.
Keep in mind that after its built, it will be incredibly tight, and be hard
to shift back and forth, especially out of 4lo.  To ease this, unlock your
hubs and drive a few feet to be sure they are unlocked.  Then your still
going to have to really pull on that lever to get it out, but at least it
wont be in vain:)

Hello All,

I am looking for a 351C. Anybody have one for sale? What is needed to swap
one into a '71 F100? The truck came with a 302/C4 and now has a 351M/C6.

Thanks.

Well you'll need a tranny with a 302/351W bolt pattern. Not sure about the
mounts & whatnot. Why not build the 351M into a 400 and go from there?

Subject: Which headers for my 390?
Date: Fri, 20 Oct 2000 20:55:17 GMT

I have a stock 390 in my '73 F100 2wd.  It has a stock 4 barrel with an
Edelbrock 1406 carb, 4 spd tranny and 3.55 gears.  This is my daily driver,
I drive it sensibly, I've outgrown racing and smokin' tires (mostly).  But I
am always on the quest for more power.

I have a cracked exhaust manifold that is driving my crazy.  I've been
kicking around the idea of adding headers for a while now, but I'm undecided
on which ones to get.  My wallet isn't as fat as I would like it to be, so
price is a big factor.

I'm told that long tube headers are better for torque, and they are easier
to find.  But long tube headers are hard on starters.  Summit has Headmans
or Dynomax for about $100.  Is either one better?

I remember seeing a web site with a FE that had shortie headers on it, how
do these compare?  Is there a peticular advantage?  These appeal to me
because it would mean less heat to the starter, right?

What are your thoughts on the matter?  What are good/bad features to look
for in headers?

Thanks guys.

Marty

i've got a 390 in my 73 f250 and i can tell you that the long tube headers
are a pain, there is little or no clearance on the passenger side between
the frame and the starter (about 1/4" between the starter and header, and
about 1/8" between the header and frame rail) . . . i have to disconnect the
passenger motor mount and partially remove the engine from the engine
compartment when i need to replace the starter (which really sucks, if you
could imagine) . . . i'm in the process of trying to find a resonably priced
shorty header solution for mine

just my opinion

Subject: 400 fuel problem

Hello all,
I recently rebuilt my 351m into a 400. I have since had a problem that I
thought was vapor locking but I am not sure now. I replaced the fuel
pump at the time of rebuild with a Napa pump. It was nothing fancy just
what they had. I am still using stock fuel lines, carburetion, and
intake manifold. The fuel line to the tank is all stock except under the
cab where the metal line has a break and there used to be a rubber fuel
line connecting them, I installed a marine water separating fuel filter
on the outside of the frame rail with hoses connecting to the two lines.
I put that on years ago when i first got the truck as the tank was
passing off some serious gunk and the little filter on the carb would
plug up very quickly. Also, when I installed the engine, I put on Hedman
hedders and it has dual exhaust exiting behind the tire with a crossover
pipe. I originally thought I was experiencing vapor lock from the
exhaust heat transferring to the metal fuel lines on their way to the
fuel pump. The reason I am wondering about this is that I towed my
travel trailer to the Kaibab forest from my home in Page, AZ yesterday
and experienced fuel starvation that made me have to let my foot off the
gas and slow down but it would not totally die off. The really strange
thing is that once I was there, the truck ran poorly without even having
the trailer on it driving on dirt roads. I think that the elevation has
something to do with it. Now that I left the trailer on the mountain,
and I returned home, I am having no problems at all. I thought today it
might have something to do with tank fuel level but it dogged out on the ....
