After writing this I realized it very long...thought I would warn you all
first :)

In response to a recent message I read on this list, I would like to ask if
you all think I got a good deal on my recent purchase.  Not that there is
anything I can or would do about it now, but I think it was a great buy ...I
LOVE MY TRUCK :)

Anyway...

67 F-100 2 wd

Standard Steering, standard brakes, manual tranny (T-18 granny low)

390  w/ 4500 miles on the rebuild, re-build was complete, runs awesome!

Holley 4 barrel  and Hedmann Headers

new shocks and new brakes...all new

super straight body and bed.

pretty rusty along the bottom of both doors, bottom of both fenders, and
rear cab corners.  With the exception of the passenger side rear corner, all
rust is surface.  The pass side rear corner is mostly gone.  The tailgate
also has a large rust hole near the bottom right corner.  No rust or bondo
on the bed.....no bondo on the body either.

Everything else is in working order.  I had to replace the alt, regulator,
and dash bulbs..everything else is dandy

Chrome wagon wheels with lame, wide, hot-rod tires.  tires are new with less
than 1500 miles on them, unfortunately I hate them :)  Anyone need some rims
and tires?  They are going next week in favor of some 30x9.50's. on stock
steel rims.

Anyway paint is good (except where its rusty) and there is really no chrome
trim outside of interior....pretty stripped model I guess.

This is getting long so I will just ask....what do you think you would pay.
I know its hard without seeing it but feel free to lowball.   It will help
me sleep knowing ,one way or the other, if I got ripped off or got a deal :)

Thanks a lot

Dan

I would be real careful about buying a truck on the sellers word alone
especially one that's been used for plowing allot as that one seems to have
been and appears to be a contractors truck to boot even
BUT if the plow is close to being new and in good condition it could be
worth close to the 800.00 bid on it so far

Well,  if I do buy it, most likely I'll just sell the plow and the rack and

if I sell the plow and stuff for a good price, I'll come out even for jsut

Im not sure about the venting part of it, but  Ido like your idea.  My 74 has
dual tanks, but is before the days of fuel doors.  I was thinking of adapting
either old Mopar flip ups, or the flip ups Mach 1s got.  But these babies go
at a premium.  Gonna have to take a look at the local boat shop.

I hate to dash anyones hopes, by the time this auction ends in eight days,
this truck may be worth $2000 or more. How much of that will the plow cover?
Wait untill the 20th of November before you make any plans for this truck.

okay, so maybe I forgot to mention that the truck was probably left in drive
while it was warming up, (on acciedent of course)  the tranny was in need of
a rebuild, and would not do anything until the fluid (or something) had a
chance to think about allowing the tranny to work.  After this happened the
first thing he did (after kicking himself in the a$$) was to have the tranny
rebuilt.  Runs great now...

still waitin for '67 to fall into my lap though...

BTW, what parts off of a '74 with power everything fit onto?(previous years)
 I ask this because a guy at work is trying to dump one that got rear
ended.  It has a 460, C6 and power everything, still runs but isn's
driveable.  The price seems right considering how much the stuff would cost
at the local wreckin yards...  anyhoo, thanks

Dan,
You can Convert your 67 to power steering without changing the column.  You
will have to use the mid to late 60's style steering gear and cut 11/16"
out of the shaft that connects the rag joint to the steering wheel.  I have
a parts list to do the conversion.

Subject: Setting up danas

Well

I've spent the past 3 days mucking around with 2 dana 60's. I wanted to
the get the D60 detroit out of the axle that came out of the back of my
big truck (which had 3.54's) and get it and the rear disk brakes into
another D60 I have with 4.10's. This rear would go into my green trail
bronc (which is still sitting with no diff's in it). I figured that
since I would not be touching pinion, I might only have to change
backlash (carrier shims). Just for kicks, I swapped 4.10 ring gear onto
detroit from 3.54 axle (knowing that carrier shims were probably going
to be wrong) and stuffed it in 4.10 axle. Backlash was .012, which is
.002 over max, but pattern indicated pinion placement was way off. I
don't see how this could be since I did not touch pinion and gearset was
the same that was already in it? Also, this axle had been run in a 78
F250 and it seemed fine then. I decided to see how hard it would be to
set up my first dana.

 So I pulled 4.10 pinion out, pulled out rear pinion bearing race
since  pinion shims are located under it, and pulled off carrier
bearings on old open diff. The old carrier bearings where honed out
using an engine cyl hone. The outside of pinion bearing race was ground
down by lightly forcing it up to a pinion bearing (by hand) that was
located on an old pinion gear and pushing outside of race against
grinding wheel. This allowed it to rotate at some relatively "even" rate
and grind away more or less evenly on the outside of race.

 I now can swap pinion and carrier shims without pressing
bearings/pinion race on/off. I'm thinking of using my original D60
housing as disk brakes are already on it, clips for holding caliper flex
lines are welded to it, and spring pads were modified a while ago with
3/8 plate to make them strong and flat. That and the fact that I now
have to set it up from scratch, makes using either housing of little
difference.

I finally broke out the 250$ pinion depth set tool I bought quite a
while ago. Before I ripped out 4.10 pinion, I measured the distance
between centerline of carrier and top of pinion. Nominal is supposed to
be 3.125, then adding anything marked on pinion, which was a "+2" in
this case. This would mean is should be 3.127. I measured 3.128, only
.001 off. This should mean pattern should be pretty close, but pattern
indicated I need less shim not more.

I've deiced that the way dana's do pinion bearing pre-load is going to
make it much easier to set up than diff's with crush collar. Set up
pinion depth, then set pre-load with in-lb torque wrench, and tighten
the heck out of pinion nut, your done :-).

 So I guess I'll be back at it today.

Hi! I've got a 65 f=100 that I swapped in a 78 power steering box. Had to
finagle brackets etc but it works great.   Dick Lauer

When I converted my '70, I replaced the inner steering column shaft with a
power steering column  shaft in my column. No other mods were necessary.

Ok gang,

I know that some of you have Dana 60 rear axles.  How in the world do you
get the brake drums off?  I know you have to remove the axle, I did that
ok.  There are supposed to be two bearing retaining nuts.  The outer one
came off with some large pliers but I can't get the pliers on the inner
one.  What size socket is required to remove this thing?  I tried the
local Pep Boys but all they had was 36MM sockets and larger sockets to
remove the front hubs.  Nothing for this #$%#$ nut.  Any suggestions?

All I need to find out is what size brake drum I need but I can't get the
drum off to check the width of the pads.  I need new drums on both sides.
All the parts stores I called said it could be either 12" x 2-1/2" or 12"
x 3" drums.  How can I tell from the exterior which it is or how can I get
the inner bearing retaining nut off?

Thanks in Advance,

the way i do it is use a big flat screwdriver and a hammer.just tap it on
the corner of the nut a few times and it just pops loose,same way to
tighten it
