Does a 64 gas tank need to be  vented? Steve

The older pre-emission tanks vented thru the cap itself. If you go with a
non-vented marine cap you'll have to vent the tank somehow, or you'll
cave the tank in as fuel is drawn out.

Subject: Trucks For Sale Anybody Interested?

Hey Everybody,
I have came across two trucks that are just too good to part out. If anybody
is interested in a new project, give me an offer on them.

1976 F-150 Ranger XLT-
390 V-8, Automatic, Single Cab, Long Wide Bed, Dual Tanks, A/C, Shoulder
Belts, Cargo Light, Factory Tool Box, Bumper, Gooseneck, Electronic Trailer
Brake Controller, Original Rust Color Paint Job, Could use a new starter, an
old farm truck, lots of scratches, only a few dings.

1976 F-150 Ranger XLT Supercab-
390 V-8, Automatic, SuperCab, Long Wide Bed, Triple Tanks, Unique Bucket
Style Bench Seat with Console, A/C, Bumper, Fog Lights, Shoulder Belts,
Original Brown Color Paint Job, a little bit of road cancer starting to show
over the wheel wells.

Both Trucks are in very good condition. They both start and run fine. They
also have clean titles. I don't have digital pictures of them yet, but I will
try to get some as soon as possible. I do not want to sell these trucks to
someone that just wants to part them out. I could do that myself and probably
make more money than I will selling them outright, but as a loyal Ford owner
and fanatic, I want to help preserve these two pieces of Ford history! If you
have this same attitude, make me an offer to consider. Oh and by the way,
unless you make me an offer I can't refuse on shipment, I will not deliver
them! Thanks guys

If you ask the parts store for a socket to fit the Dana 60 I think you will
get one.  If the counter people are unhelpful try a different store.    I got
mine at NAPA where they are on display with all of the special tools like
cylinder hones, etc.  Stock # KD2436, 2 9/16".  I do not think there is
enough space around the nuts to use a regular socket, you need to get the
special ones just for this application.  Good Luck

   Either measure the axle nut that you already have out, or take it to the
local auto parts store and get the proper axle nut socket. Assembly should
be made with an axle nut socket and torque wrench for proper bearing
preload.

 Gary is right on about the dust. It IS NOT

appropriate respirator. The smell isn't that bad but
the dust is. If it gets into your lungs they say
it'll be there forever so watch out. If you can, use a
coolant "flood" to negate the dust. Good tips Gary!

There are several nuts used on it and there is a wrench for all of them.  If
you plan to keep it for a while I certainly would  get the correct wrench
both to preserve the nuts and to ensure that you can get the full 150 or so
pounds of torque on them.  I can assure you that you won't get that kind of
torque on them with the punch at nearly 90 degrees to the direction of
rotation.  I did it that way with my E-300, many times but was too dumb to
look for the proper wrench at the time.  I'm much smarter now :-)  I have a
tool for every part of my trucks now.

Ox, did you mix pinion and ring gears from two sets?  That is a no, no you
no :-)  Ring and Pinon sets are lapped in at the factory and the pinion
depth is set based on offsets in the lapping machine for each set.   You
can't mix sets and get the correct ink patterns no matter how well you
measure the back lash and pinion depth.

Just to let everyone know what I found out.

Ford uses a pulsed system for their fuel injection.

It is NOT a sequential fuel injection system.

Youcan use a 302 cam in a 351 or a 351 cam in a 302 without worrying about
the fuel injection.

Ford alternates left and right banks not individual injectors.

Nope, started out just swapping in a detroit locker, not touching
pinion at all. Ended up swapping gearset to a different housing, not
done with that yet, still need to hone out one diff bearing and possibly
order shim kit. It's weird that with three sets of factory pinion shims,
I only have either .004 or .011 shims (about 15 total).

Having worked in a factory all my life I can tell you that a good operator
can get even production parts very close so it stands to reason that the
shims would be "typical".  A good example is the offset for the pinion
depth.  Generally only a few thousandths which is because the parts
themselves are close and the operators know what they are doing so are able
to repeat very close, part after part.  (assuming they have good management
and their equipment is kept up of course......:-))

Subject: Putting late model OE mirrors on old trucks...
Date: Mon, 13 Nov 2000 07:18:33 -0800

A week or two ago, someone asked about swapping newer Ford mirrors onto our
old trucks and wondering if they would work and how they mounted...
Well, I was cruising my local auto dismantler (shopping mall as someone here
more aptly put it...) and came across a '95 F250.  The yard normally doesn't
get stuff this new, but this poor truck was hit hard.  The passenger door
mirror was in good shape (probably the only good part on the truck), so I
snagged it.

There are the two screws visible from the outside.  They screw into inserts
which are attached to the outer skin.  In addition, there is a support arm
that bolts to the inner door panel.  It appears to be removable, although I
haven't really checked it out.  I think if you made a backing plate to
stiffen the mounting area, the support arm would be unnecessary.

I held it up to a '70 F100 in the yard and it seems like the body lines are
comparable.  If anyone wants a picture of the mounting, let me know off list
and I'll snap one with my digital camera.  Dad wants to keep his stock
mirrors, so if someone would like this one to experiment with or needs a
spare for their newer truck, let me know.  I paid $15 for it.

That depends what year and vehcile you're talking about ... "batch fire" as
its called was phased out in the mid 90's and eventually I think everything
went SEFI ... I'm pretty sure the Mustang's are running SEFI in the early 90's,
but they tend to be a different breed of animal compared with the rest of the
line sometimes.

ALWAYS check your years and computers, it would be very bad to swap certain
ways ... in the truck realm you might be safe, once you get into the HO's and
such its a whole new ball game.

Oh yeah, firing orders are different though for the ignition even if the batch
fire sequence is the same.

I've been surprised at what a factory computer can deal with so far ... we've
swapped a 4cyl auto car over to a 5spd and put a header and disconnected the
EGR (while we figure out how to make it work with the header) on and still no
check engine light, and its running great.

I'm thinking a Saturday would be best for me, though a Sunday afternoon would
work as well.

Not sure what all your favorite places to visit/eat are down there, but we can
decide that all off list, just wanted at least one more post on the list to
catch as many people as possible.


If you guys who are interested want to mail me off list you can contact me at
either wish iastate.edu or wish ford-trucks.net

CJ, any more Iowa trips planned ;)  Anyone who might be in the area around the
Dec. time frame be sure and let us know, maybe we can move it around a bit to
accomodate more people.

(I know I often hear it lamented "Man, I've always wanted to go to Iowa ..."
;)

Subject: Brake HELP!

Okay, this is kind of a pressing matter, but I really need a part number from
a 78 or 9 brake proportioning valve.  I was in at the Ford dealer and they took
over 15 minutes to tell me they couldn't find it (while I was standing there).
They found a number for a 75, but couldn't verify that that would be the same
as for a 78 ...

I'm looking for a valve for a half ton, pick a weight I don't care, just doing
a disk brake swap and want to get something that'll work for me ... if anyone's
got a known good one and can get it to me THIS WEEK, then let me know too.

Thanks guys, its snowing today and the car is shivering afraid I'll take it
out in the slush.

Yo Randy:

If you have the Ford part number, you can search for it on PartsVoice
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.partsvoice.com).  If it's been obsoleted for a while, you could also
try Green Sales Co. (http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.GreenSalesCompany.com).  Green Sales specializes
in obsolete Ford parts.

Good luck.

Neat site!  Found this under "Fun Facts"...

Most distressed Ford auto parts request submitted through our site:

Year - 1993
Model - Probe
Description - Need distributor, module is bad. Ordered one for 1990 Probe,
doesn't work - PLEASE HELP EMERGENCY SITUATION-HONEYMOON IN JEOPARDY

I don't know which is funnier, the honeymoon part or that the '90 part
doesn't work in the '93... :)

I had to call the local ford dealership today on an unrelated matter, so I
asked about your proportioning valve.  I asked for '78 f150 4x4
proportioning valve...  p/n 2B257, $110 (ouch), in stock at the warehouse.
Can't promise this is accurate or what you need, but maybe it'll help.

I hope this link works.  I searched at the site below and there were 4 or 5
places that listed the part you're looking for. If the link doesn't work
then go to car-part.com and put the parameters in the search engine.

ford uses both SEFI and batch fire, depends on the application.
