Dale,

Think about this. Buy an Edelbrock Performer 4 Barrel
Manifold and Edelbrock 4V carb w/electric choke to fit
your 351M.

When you get richer, you can go to a 400 crank and
flattop pistons. You can still use the manifold and
carb and have great perfomance from the 400.

The nice thing is this time we didn't have 2 weeks of list down
time like the last switch!  I tested a month in advance.

I think they will fit okay as the rims may be 17x8, but the tires are "only"
275/60/17's, around a 30" tire.  Since I think they are only 8" wide you could
go as low as a 245 tire without too much trouble.

Heh, nope, they sit on a nice little tray that bolts in just like a bench seat
... bolt the tray in then bolt them to the tray or vice versa, either way its
much nicer than having to mount up each one individually.  Likely I'll get to
"try" this on a 73 cab sometime in the near future :)

Oh yeah if you go gettin these things be sure and get a late 94+ where they
have a nice center seat/armrest, otherwise you are pretty much getting an aftermarket
one from Down's Ford and moving the seats outboard, or making do with a "console"
that lets you store stuff, but no room for people or armrests.

While the lists don't profit me, the site does, sort of.
A the beginning of 2000, my wife told me either I give
up FTE (40 hours a week with FTE and 40 hours with a job)
or I make FTE full time.  In June, I took FTE full time.
I've taken a huge cut in pay doing it, but I'm back to
a normal 40-50 hour work week.  I thought everyone was
aware the FTE was my job now.  Since FTE wiped out the
family savings in the last 4 years I guess you can say
even though FTE is my job, it'll be a year or more before
I've broken even with all the expenses.

Subject: '65 Engine Identification


Greetings to all,

I am looking at a 1965 F100 right now, trying to determine what size
the engine is.  I *want* a 300 cid inline six.  It's clearly a six
cylinder, but I can't really tell if it's the 240 or the 300.  The VIN is:

F10AD872504

Other info on the ID plate inside the door reads:

129 WH F100 B81 C 09

05000 129 4000 62

I think I know what most of that stuff means already.

Sources on the internet say that the fifth digit in this VIN (D) denotes a
352 cid V8, but this truck clearly does not have that engine, and has
never had an engine replacement (this inline six currently in the truck is
original).

If anyone has some casting numbers for the 240 or 300 cid engines (for
the 1965 model year, or around then), or can give me any outstanding
identifying descriptions (like "the carb always sits at such 'n such a
spot next to the engine"), or can accurately decipher the VIN, it would
certainly help.  I'm crazy about the 300 cid engine and want to know if
this is the genuine article (my last 300 cid was in a '90 F150 and was
covered with modern junk, and so I can't really recognize its earlier
relative in the '65 F100).

Thanks in advance, I appreciate any help.

Actually on our old Ford trucks, the 4th digit is the engine code.  which is
an A, which unless Im mistaken, is a 240.   I believe the 300 is a Y code,
but again, I could be mistaken.  The only engine code I can ever say for
certain, is a J code, cuz then it means your dealin with the rare Ford truck
with a factory 460.  Lemme know what your book lists for an A code, Im
curious.

What websites can I use to look up Ford parts? I would like to search for
some small bits before I go searching for them locally (and get blank
stares). I know I've seen some sites mentioned, but I didn't write them
down.

Thanks,

Subject: moving 240 dipstick to 300 engine


I am swapping a 300 for my 240 in my Club Wagon. I am swapping the 240 oil
pan and pickup to the 300 for crossmember clearance. That is easy enough,
but I have to transplant the dipstick as well. On the 300, there seems to
be a boss where I need to put the 240 disptick. What do I do to open this
up? Do I need to drill and tap it? The 300 stick had a threaded fitting to
screw into the block. I didn't check how the 240 stick is attached. Sorry
if this has an obvious answer -- I just realized last night that I need to
do this, but I didn't try anything yet.

Thanks,
don
