In response, to the below listed. My personal belief is that my Ford is a
great thing, but, just how much precedence does it take over life in
general. I know the die hards all say Fords are life, hehe But In Rich's
defense, an occasional reminder to the die hards on the Ford list that
wouldnt dream of darkening the "doorway" of another forum/list that an
occasional update about our boys out there that many of which are probably
Ford fans too, (guestimation) our support would be greatly appreciated.

Well in response to the below, good thing you aint seen my steering, I still
cant find tie rod ends for that draglink with the garrison style power
steering, I did manage to rebuild the thing though, but I got like 5 inches
of free play in the steering wheel, makes it kinda tricky to manuver down
the highway but when its a daily driver with no other recourse, yick, if
anyone has any part numbers for those things, it would be greatly
appreciated.

Haha. I've told my significant other "it'll be two weeks" so many times
that it's become a long-standing joke with her whenever I'm doing something
on the truck... "How long is it gonna take to fix that, Dave...oh yeah, two
weeks!"

I've always found that things go quicker when you have someone helping you
though my partner in Ford trucks doesn't drink so maybe that's the key
factor...sobriety.  Other than the hassle with the brake lines, swapping
the cab should go fairly quickly. We've gotten quite good at field
stripping a cab and most of the stuff goes fast - it's when you get to the
old rusted bolts that you can't get at with a saw or torch that you get
killed....

Actually, you'll probably be able to get them off fairly easily. I was
stripping a truck for parts with a buddy and we were removing the cab (we
were keeping the rest of it for a while). He tried to get the cab bolts
undone and they weren't budging. Not having a decent breaker bar, I did the
old box-end wrench slipped over the end of the ratchet handle trick and got
ready to start prying. He started shaking his head and me and just go "No
way" out of his mouth when I snapped the bolt - and then proceeded to do
the others. Being somewhat slight of frame, I didn't have a whole lot of
force on it and those bolts snapped fairly easily. Probably the easiest
thing I've removed in a while!

The disposal of the cab was even more amusing...we lashed it back to back
with the cab on another truck that didn't have a box. Good thing neither
one of us owns a welder and cutting torch - we were starting to become
somewhat serious in our considerations of creating some twisted
Frankenstein F150 Double Cab!   :-)

I haven't done it to my '64, but a few years back I asked some
of my hotrodding co-workers, one owned a '65 F100, about this.
He indicated that the steering column and power steering stuff
from a '74 will fit right in.  Other years not so easy.

Any substantiation?

It has come time to do something about my steering on my 64 F100. My
steering box is feeling funny and I can turn it about 1/4 turn before it has
any effect on the steering of the vehicle.  I am trying to decide if buying
a mustang II front clip is the answer or just converting to power steering
and disc brakes is the way to go. What is the opinion of the group?
I am not sure if I want to chop my frame to install the mustang II front
end. How hard is it to just convert to PS and disc brakes? What years of
F100s can I find the donor parts? Is it a major fabrication job to do this
conversion?

Subject: Re: Coil spring paint...

I think the bumper paint is more geared towards rubber and plastic.  It
consists of an adhesion promoter, primer, and color coat.  I think the cans
of the stuff total around $15.  I have had wonderful results on plastic
bumpers, but my springs have held up real nice with a coat of Plasti-Coat
engine paint on them with a shot of clear on top--And they matched the engine.

If you're just looking for something to keep them from rusting, JC Whitney
sells paint called Zero Rust.  Has anyone ever heard of it?  It seals
existing rust and dries rock hard.  After I sandblasted my frame, I put a
few coats of that on it and am very pleased with the results.

Darryl- on that rust fix for the front of your bed, you can have a
sheetmetal shop bend you a suitable piece to fit if you decide to fix it
instead of replace the bed. Nobody makes a patch panel that I know of. I had
to make my own too. If you go that route, it's easier to pull the bed to fix
it. Lot more room to work that way. You can buy "patch" panel material for
the floor or replace it all with new sheetmetal. Good luck whichever way you
go.

 Speakin of beds. Does anybody out there have a good bed wiring harness for
a 64 / 66 Styleside? I either misplaced mine or scrapped it with my old
rusty bed, and this new bed didn't have one. I'll need it one of these days,
if I ever get this thing ready to put back on. Drop me a line if you can
help.

:-) Been there...paid a few bucks while getting kingpins replaced and an
alignment done to also have my frame fixed up. Unfortunately, over a year
later, when I just changed my steering box I noticed that the whole box and
frame flex a bit while turning the wheel. I really ought to get myself a
welder (or access to one) and fix it properly...

You have the welder so at least whatever you do you're not forking out a
lot of cash and you can make sure you do the job right so you're don't drop
your steering box off the frame at a very inopportune moment...

Art, have you adjusted your steering box yet? I'd start with the small
things first. Power steering will not help this problem and IFS is overkill
unless you are rodding out your truck.

Alrighty. This is how it looks so far.

Well my plans.
Ok i went and bought the 77 f-150
It's in a lot better condition then i thought.  So that was a well spent
$300.

I also found a place in wi that i can buy a cab from for $150.  (just a U
pull yard).  I have the deliam of keeping the f-150 so i have something to
drive.  and buy the other cab so i can swap it.  and i can build up the
f-250 like i wanted to (mud running/trail riding vehicle) and i won't have
to worry about having nothing to drive and have to worry about time, even
though it shouldn't take me to long.  From what people have said on this
list here, it won't be that hard and time consumming i just wanna do it
right.  Also you guys are such a big help you just don't understand how big
of a help you guys are.  I have taken notes for everything that everyone has

left out.  let me know.  also should i write a tech article about the swap

Have someone bump the steering wheel back and forth left to right(from tight to tight)
and look at the various connections and the input to the steering box and the output
of the box..  What we're all saying is to isolate the problem 1st, then do the "fix".
May not be the box, but could be any one or a combination of several things.  Look

For what it's worth, i got my '65 steering box rebuilt for around 140 bucks
from the Lares Corp. I think they're out of Missouri, i could give you all the
contact info if you'd like. I was in the same situation re: play in the wheel
and thought about switching to power steering, but opted for the keep it simple
method and don't regret it at all. It's such a basically well designed steering
system, that power assist is really unnecessary. I'm being particuly grateful
at the moment as my '73 pl&m% duster is having power steeering issues.

orders.  He said he uses either Ohio or Nylund.

I've heard of Ohio Pistons, (Detroit?)  but haven't heard of Nylund (sp.?).
The rebuild will be a stock rebuild, nothing fancy, maybe a little lumpier
cam, but that's about it.  Anybody heard of Nylund...and have any thoughts

My Catalog only lists the speedo cables for F100 2wd. No listing for 4WD.

Subject: Antifreeze in Cab
Date: Wed, 25 Oct 2000 15:13:47 CDT

First, thanks to all of you who responded to my question about the starter
solenoid.  I ended up getting a new battery (the old battery was from
Louisiana, and the problem started the very first night the temperature
dropped into the 30's here in our new home in New Jersey, not enough CCAs I
guess).

Next, I offer my apologies to those of you who might view my questions as
painfully boring and uninformed.  Usually I consult my old shop manuals
first, but they're in storage.  And while I love my old truck, I'm cheap to
a fault and don't trust most of the mechanics I've met (the Ragusas in Baton
Rouge were great, as well as Cesar from Auto Haus in Humble, TX).  So, you
see, I value your guidance.

Okay, it's a '65 F-100 and when I'm driving, antifreeze leaks onto the floor
of the cab.  What is it, and is it something I can fix myself?

Thank you.

Subject: Fix or replace bed for 65 F-100

Darryl, forgot to mention that IF you fix that front panel, take a hard
look at that front crossmember under the floor. They get all packed with
dirt, and rust about as bad as the bed itself. It's a little heavier
gauge which helps, but look it over good because your "repair" panel
welds to it.  If it's REALLY bad, you can use the second crossmember back
from a "donor" bed as a replacement. That one doesn't rust out as often,
and is easy to find even in an otherwise junk bed. Oh, and did I
mention.... paint the whole repair area with POR-15, or something like
it.
            Good luck, Phil (64 F-100, much happier w/ Oklahoma bed now)

Subject: Zero rust....was coil spring paint

  Zero rust has a website too. {zerorust.com} Pretty much the same stuff
as POR-15, and Bill Hirsch's "Miracle Paint". A moisture curing urethane.
Comes in more colors, but they don't have as broad a product line as
Rustomotive. (POR-15) Their prices for the paint are a little cheaper
though. About $17 qt. for black, versus $29.  It's also available in a
spray can while the others are not. They ALL can BE sprayed though. For
chassis parts, I think you get better coverage with brushing and it drys
streak free anyway.
 I have used a bunch of POR-15 on different projcts and have never been
disappointed. Their product info says it will take a lot of flexing also.

            Later, Phil  (63 1/2 Galaxie, 64 F-100 , POR-15  R& D
vehicle :-)

Mary - sounds like it is probably a leaky heater core. That will require
the heaters' removal to fix. It's not terribly complicated if you have
tools and some mechanical skills.

Mary,

First of all I'm glad there are some other people on the list who post the
"easy questions" from time to time.  I'm learning myself (even though I'm
30) and this list has been great.  We've got a real good mix of "wise old
vets" and "young whippersnappers" so we get a both easy and difficult
questions.  :-)  I say fire away.

I know what you mean about mechanics.  My old mechanic is a good 45
minutes away at them moment but I've found another great garage around the
corner to do the stuff I don't have time to.

Now as to the anitfreeze I think I can actually answer this one.  Its the
heater core.  Now I'm not positive on a '65 but that's the only reason I
can think of to have antifreeze in the cab.  If this was a '78 I'm sure
it'd be true.  I've got no idea how hard it is to change but at least I
can offer some comfort in the fact that there are other's like you on the
list.

Later,

Eric Finn (learning as he goes)
'78 Bronco "The Beast" (Project still in progress)
'79 F-350 4x4 "Fred" (Project about to commence..)
