Ford was the first to come out with the extended cab in 1974 when they coined
the phrase "SuperCab." Chevrolet didn't come out with the extended cab until
1988 if I'm not mistaken. Dodge I believe had an older extended cab, not sure
of what year though.

Stu:

The Volare is a good option; but also consider the heavier Cordoba one.
Also, I've heard of a person who grafted a Torino clip under a '56.
That would give you motor mounts for as big of engine as you would like
and keep the project pure FOMOCO <grin>.

Re: adjustable MII units, airbags are available.

Good to hear about the 4 link rear suspension.  I considered it for my
project, but decided to stay with the ordinary leaf spring style.  I'll
probably remove all but the longest 4 leaves following a suggestion I
received.

Speaking of my project, I've located a 78 302/C4 combination (with all
accessories still attached) very near my home for $100. It's out of a
formerly running vehicle.  I'm now drilling out the spot welds on the
MII clip to remove the extra sheet metal in preparation for splitting
it.  If I find I don't like the split clip, I'll mount suspension on a
FATMAN or equivalent.

I agree with Wish and Don on the Mustang II as a solid choice BUT -

Volare and Mustang II clips have wide acceptance among the hot-rod/custom
community
due to the fact parts are very available and they a decent units to install.

I am leaning now, at this point toward a Volare clip for three reasons.

1.  They are a tad beefier than the Mustang II unit and since we will have
a healthy FE in there I will feel a little better about the extra support.

2.  Parts are readily available for the Volare clips and it appears it will
remain that way thanks to many street
rod people who use these units.

3.  The front ride height is adjustable in a matter of seconds with a
Volare - unless someone has come up with an adjustable Mustang II recently,
I don't think they are as easily adjustable.

I am looking for something that we be useful on this "long term vehicle" so
parts availablity it rather important.

Yes FTE land, you are hearing Mr. Blue blooded FoMoCo himself say, he is
thinking of using a non-Ford component
in his truck.  Atleast it ain't a Camaro front clip.  8^)

Mustang II's have practically unlimited potential as they appear to be THE
item to put under the front of any ride.

Decisions, decisions.......Thankfully, the front end and frame work will
not begin until February
or so right after we finish the four link rear end.

Keep the discussion going.....I am all ears.

Check for a worn lobe on the cam and then look for rocker arm problems or a
bent pushrod. These can cause an apparent miss or weak cylinder.

Any knocks or tapping noises in this engine?

I am not sure if this qualifies as a supercab or not, but in 1965 an
aftermarket company built the first 4 door Crew Cab in 1965. It was built
from a Ford light truck body and chassis. Then in 1966 Ford designed and
built their four door version on an F250 and F350 chassis.

Anyone else have the facts on if this is considered a Supercab?

No.  A Supercab has 2 doors.  The 4 door models were called crewcabs.

Rich, I haven't checked for whote kits, but I do know that you can buy
large sheets or blocks from good fabric stores. In Philadelphia, we have
what's called "Fabric Row" and I've been to shops that have this foam. They
use it for reupolstering chairs and couches. If you were resourceful and
wanted to do it all yourself, you could go this route. I made a custom seat
cover for one of my scooters and reshaped the foam using this repacement
foam. Perhaps you can find it locally or someone can order it for you. I'm
sure this would be comparatvely cheap and would work well.

I seriously doubt this is a vacuum leak from the carb.  I presume your
engine is stock and, as such, has a "dual plane" manifold.  This means that
each side of the 2BBL carb feeds 4 cylinders.  One side does 1,4,6,7 and
the other side does 2,3,5,8.  This means that if the carb gasket, for
example, was leaking, you would see the truck running on 4 cylinders at
idle.  In any case, both 4 and 8, the cylinders you say are missing, would
not both be affected.

It makes much more sense that your intake manifold is leaking at the rear.
Another possible thing you probably have not considered is if the lobes on
the back of the cam are getting flat.  To check this, pull the valve covers
and run the engine - see if the rockers on those cylinders are not moving
near as much as the others.

Makes sense to me. We had a 66 Buick Wildcat that we regularly had to
replace the carb to manifold gasket on. We could always tell when it needed
it because of the rough idle and it was impossible to tune. If this is the
case with your truck, you should be able to turn one idle mixture screw all
of the way in without killing the engine.

You might try a craft and hobby store for bulk foam. Get the thickness you
want and cut it the way you want it. Put on a new seat cover and you are
good to go. The seat covers I put on can be tied on so that you can take
them off and wash them. This is also handy if you get a lump in the padding.
I used hog rings, though.

Since rich is a relative term, I consider myself rich, though not with $.
Now filthy rich with $ would be a desired descriptor.

Dennis..
I'd recommend you stop up all vacuum ports prior to tearing down the carb..
If memory serves me correctly, there is a vacuum port behind the card in the intake and
this is where the vacuum booster for the power brakes gets its vacuum..  Try removing
the hose to the boostrer and stopping up this port 1st.  You might have a bad diaphram in
your power booster..  Also if you have Cruise control, it might get its vacuum from the
same port.  I don't believe it is the carb, but I do believe it is a vacuum leak..Compression
is too even for it to be valves.. Also try stoping up the PCV valve and see if the two cyls
start to hit..  Try blocking off anything connected to vacuum 1st(one at a time)..

Good luck

If you are using a real, junk yard MII you will need to do some work on it
to make it strong enough for a truck.  The after market, copies are already
beefed up in the right places for you but, of course, are more pricey.

Most people who use this front end on a truck have no intention of ever
doing anything with it but cruising with no load in which case an MII will
probably work as is with slightly stronger springs but this front end was
made for a car that weighed half of what a 2wd truck weighs.  Have you ever,
in all your years, seen an OEM engineer over build anything?

I saw a Tbird racing family team use Chevy front clips to meet the sector
steering requirments and also, apparently gain something in the spring
adjusment catagory as well but there are ford front ends that would have
worked just as well, just much harder to find because they are under cars
still being driven.......:-)

My sister had a '76 MII with a V8 and if I remember correctly, the curb

Just looked it up and a '76 Ghia had a curb weight of 2,866 lbs.  Yikes!

I have a friend who's doing a bit of racing with a T-bird/Cougar, he's trying
to use the 84ish body style, unfortunately the way the rules are written they
heavily favor chubbies ... at least the specs seem that way as they put the
full size Ford's against the intermediate GM's because of the way they're written.

Really ?  Okay I was told that my sister's truck was a D60 and Dad's was a 10.25"
(his old HD) ... the reason was Dad's had a nearly round pumpkin on it (I've
got a pic if you need one) ... Jamie's on the other hand is much more mis-shapen
... his was an 88 HD, hers is a 91 LD ... I've never been inside either one
of them.

If anyone's interested, there's a 79 f250 supercab w/ 460 motor being parted
out at Salida Auto Dismantlers in CA.  It will be the donor of the AIR
injection tube I've been searching for.  I came across it online, so I
haven't seen it and don't know what other parts are available, though.

I have the late model mirrors on The Muny Pit.  Think the guy I
bought the
truck from said they were off a 91.  They are black.
<snip>

Jeff, are we talking about the same mirrors?  The ones I want, came out on
the '92-'96 Fords.  Some were power, some manual.  Like this Bronco has (for
instance):

Are those the ones you have on your pickup?

I was having a minor posting problem which brother Ken kindly fixed for me.
Appears out of the blue I was not able to post for about 5 days and I
reposted the same old message twice.  Sorry to act like
a newbie.

I need a good winter vehicle for the nasty winters we get here in Minnesota. (you Colorado people amuse me, it's nice there!) I am looking at possibly purchasing a 1994 F150 XL pickup. It is black, regular cab, 300, 5spd, 4 wheel drive, 82,000 miles.

They want about $7500 for it. Sound like a good deal? It runs great and it appears to not have anything wrong with it.

Anyone know of any specific things I should be on the lookout for on this truck?


Thanks

I think this is somewhat directed to me as I am now a Denver resident and
asked about tires for the snow awhile back...you are in luck, I am a Midwest
native.  grew up in Chicago, went to school at the u in minni, and yes,
Colorado winters are awesome. that's why you should move like I did :)  but
going up the mountains to ski in a two wheel drive truck when 16" of snow
has fallen and is still falling really isn't too pleasant, even compared to
minnesooooota :)

Sounds like a good deal to me on the truck. I would jump at it if I had
found it, although I would try to talk them down to 7000 :)
go gophers,
Dan

I was just joking around about the Colorado thing, hope nobody took it the wrong way. BTW I lived there for  6 years.
