Stu:
   Try the place that is going to do the painting for you, or the place
that you are going to buy your paint.  The place where i get mine lets me
take the book and compare for myself.

   Many of the older colours may not show the formula for the specific year
you are looking for, as they tend to get phased out as paint technology gets
changed.  The maroon colour of my truck is an example; It was'nt listed
under 1970 ford truck, but i found the exact match  listed under a 1979 trim
colour.

  The PPG book i had even had chips and formulas for most engine colours
well back into the 50's

  Whenever possible you should take colour chips outside and look at them
in sunlight.  Florescent or incandesent lights will never make colours look
right.

 Forget about trying to judge a colour based on a scan or what you see on
your computer monitor.  There are just too many ways for the reproduction to
be screwed up.

The C6 close ratio and the E4OD have the same 1st three gear ratios..

Sorry in advance for another emissions-related post, but...

I am piecing together an emissions system for a '79 f250 supercab w/460.
(the original system was removed and discarded by PO, but is required for
inspection purposes).  I've been unable to find an air injection tube (metal
tube, 3/8"-1/2" dia., bolts to rear of both heads).  Anybody know where I
might acquire one of these?  The local ford dealer says he might be able to
locate one for me, but at a price I'd like to avoid. :)
TIA for your help.

Does anybody know where I can get a wiring harness for my alternator? I
called my local ford dealer, and they said that it was no longer available.
Is that true or did they just not want to look it up? I might be interested
in also buying a whole new main wiring harness. Has anyone undertaken this
feat? If so, can you get that factory? Where at? Price? Thanks guys

Gary,
Ford doesn't sell the sock?  Well, GM sells them cheap.  I just replaced
one the other day.  If you want I can go out in the garage and get the
part number for you.  Looks pretty generic to me.  The one I got slips
over 3/8" steel line.

Subject: Remove fan from 300?

Simple question: how do I remove the fan from a 1981 300 engine?

I have a 300 that I'm prepping to replace the 240 in my '66 Club Wagon. The
fan on the 300 is bent and I'd like to replace the water pump. This fan is
different from early ones that I've encountered. It's not like most I've
seen that have 4 or 5 bolts holding it to the snout of the water pump.  It
has a ring of small fins in front of the fan itself and has a small flat
metal clip on the very end that I removed, and there is a screw that turns
but does not come out. I don't have a shop manual that covers the 300 so
please help me out.

Thanks,
don

Stu:

I thought of you at a swap meet over the weekend when I saw a Mercury
wide box tailgate.  I remembered you had the 68 F100 that you're
"restomoding".

You probably saw my posts earlier that I found and bought a 56 F100
project truck.  Pictures of the beginning project are on my website
below.  I've got a MII front end to install but am leaning to a Fatman
unit so that I don't have to split the crossmember.  The Mopar (Volare,
Cordoba, etc.) seem to be beefier in my estimation; and I've not checked
out the Aerostar suggestion that Steve gave me.  I understand that
there's even a Dodge Dakota conversion now available.

For the prostreet option you want, there are some pretty awesome rear
clips that can be installed.  Check out www.artmorrison.com and go to
the prostreet truck page.

Hey Don,
How do you know you have a 300?  Maybe you missed my intro post.  I am
planning to replace my 240 in my 65 truck with a 300 but want to make sure I
get a 300.  Any external identifying marks/ID to let me know its a 300?
thanx in advance.

Well, if you have a napa around they can get them, or if you have an AC
Delco parts dealer or warehouse around, they like to stock the A.I.R. tubes
as well, so check one of these two places.

Hey all

I have a detroit locker that is coming out of a 78, 3.54, D60 and going
in a 79, 4.10, D60 (both rear diffs). Will this carrier fit with 4.10's?
Just wondering exactly where the crossover is?

The carriers change from 4.10 to 4.56.  Not sure if there is a gear
in between or not but 3.54 and 4.10 should use the same carrier

OK, thanks. Most I should have to do is maybe mess with is backlash.
That is what I was hoping to hear :-).

Nope- tried a couple of napa stores and AC delco stores, but no luck.  There
are tubes available for some of the other engines, but not the 460.
