Has anyone tried "welding"aluminum with a propane torch and aluminum
rods?
I have seen a few guys selling kits with different rods,instructions
etc.at swap meets and I even saw a infomecial for a kit.
It appears to be more like soldering,brazing or sweating than true
welding.
but it seemed to be a stromg bond.

Subject: Electrical problems.

Was driving my '65 F-100 earlier this week when alternator light
suddenly came on.  Made it home and checked belt and made visual
inspection.  Everything seemed ok but light stayed on.

Then removed alternator and had it checked at NAPA.  Checked ok  at 15.4
voltage output.  So i purchased a new voltage regulator.

Removed the old VR and determined that it had apparently sizzled.  Fuse
was gone.  Installed the new regulator and alternator light did not come
on but  within just a few seconds, the new voltage regulator started
smoking.  I had turned off everything...lights, radio, wipers...no load
at all.

Went back to NAPA and purchased an alternator.  Installed it and VR
started smoking again within a few seconds.  What should I check next?

NEED HELP!

Hi guys,
Well I took the old Ford out hunting last weekend, had allot of fun driving the snow covered mountain roads.  When I got home, I noticed that the inside of my front wheel was wet, brake fluid.  It's time to replace all the front brake hoses.  Who is a good supplier for stainless steel braided hoses?  I'd prefer to use them over rubber covered ones.
Thanks,

Not different circumferences, or least not to my knowledge.  There
are two(that I'm aware of) different starter rings, but these aren't usually
considered part of the flywheels..  One has more teeth than the other and
the seperation was in '65 I think(whenever the short snout starter was
introduced)..

I wouldn't think that the belt would run in the oil. Maybe the coolant leak
allowed it to get on the belt & made it  slip & jump a few teeth or strip
some of the  teeth off the belt.

That would be my guess too but My Soninlaw is not mechanically inclined at
all and they could have told him the muffler bearing was damaged and he
wouldn't know they were pulling his leg so I thought I'd ask.  The dealer
that damaged it said the engine oil pump failed to operate when he put the
transmission in drive......

Turns out that he checked the oil immediately after it stopped and it was
dry as toast.  I think the mechanic forgot to put oil back in it when they
repaired the timing cover.  (They claimed they changed the oil)  If this
engine has the same intake manifold as the 4.6 it could have been the
manifold (a plastic thing with a thin spot in the water jacket which is the
subject of a tech bulletin), not the timing cover, in which case it will let
coolant in for sure.  A friend had this happen to a fairly new Grand Marquis
and it trashed the engine but again, when he drove it in it ran fine but was
over heating and leaking coolant, same issue as the truck.  When he got it
back it ran very poorly and they had replaced the intake.  They claimed the
over heating warped the heads and they couldn't get the mainfold to fit but
when he took it to another dealer they told him it was completely hopeless.
Again Willie is not a mechanic so had to accept some of what they said but
he's a lot more into it than Jason (soninlaw).

Goes to show you that the only person you can really trust to work on our
vehicles is us, ourselves.  We make mistakes but at least we don't lie to
ourselves about it :-)

If you guys tell me the new modular engines actually do have muffler
bearings I'm going to scream....:-) (wouldn't surprise me in the
least...timing belts, plastic intakes, Engine oil pumps driven by the
transmission...but only in drive.... :-))

The problem with welding aluminum is that it melts at a very low temp so if
you get it too hot is sags and runs like solder.  You have to have some
skill with a torch to have any success with this.  Aluminum also carries the
heat away so fast that you have to have a very highly concentrated flame and
a good eye for the puddle.  If you are not skilled what will happen is you
will look for a puddle which has skimmed over like solder does but won't see
it and suddenly the whole dang thing falls through.....BUMMER!!

You have to keep poking the puddle area with the rod to test it or it will
get away from you.

I did see a very interesting torch at the truck show which I would like to
have myself and it has the right kind of concentrated flame but still
requires some skill and understanding of how aluminum works.  I saved a
flyer from them and will get it out some day when I have some cash and get
my honey do list under control :-)
