Subject: More D60 Brake Help


Ok folks,

My parts have started trickling in for the new brakes/bearings I'll need
for my D60 rear in my '79 F-350.  Now here's my question.  I got the new
brake drums and they seem to be nothing but drums.  By that I mean that
they don't include the center section with the wheel studs or the
"housing" for the bearings.  It seems I have to reuse that center section,
whatever its called.  How do I separate this section from the old drums?
It looks like I have to remove all of the wheel studs since they seem to
sandwich the center section to the inside of the brake drum.  How do I
remove the studs?  Can I just put a sacrificial lug nut on the threads and
pound it out with the BFH?  Can I reuse the studs?  Would it be easier to
buy a new center section?

So many questions and so little time until I need a working truck.  TIA
for the help.

Later,

Subject: rattling doors/ wheatherstripping


Just thought of another one for you guys:

The doors on my '77 F250 make an incredibly annoying rattling noise,
especially at low speeds and of ourse depending on the condition of the road.
The wheatherstripping on the driver's side door is missing completely so I
suspect that that contributes to the problem but the wheatherstripping on the
passenger side door is intact and that door makes the same noise, although
it's by far not as loud as the driver's side.  What is a good place to buy
replacement wheatherstripping and are there any devices like rubber stops or
so the will shut the doors up?  By the way, the hinges are in great shape and
the most of the noise seems to be coming from the locks even though I couldn't
find anything to be wrong with them (yet).

Thanks in advance,

Ryan
'77 F250

Not my auction , but there is a set of door weather seals for your truck on
Ebay right now: Here is the link...

I bought my new weather strips from the local Ford dealer, but I'm sure you
can buy aftermarket ones from "Dennis Carpenter, Inc.", "AutoKrafters", and
"LMC Truck".

Also, it might be the glass in the door that is rattling.

Greetings, again...

Thanks to you all for your level headed input on my so-called 65 F100
engine identification questions.  I have come to the conclusion that the
truck is a late 65 or early 66, with a 65 grille, 240 cid engine and light
duty 3 speed manual on the column.  The whole truck is in pretty rough
shape, and the engine is very evenly and freshly coated with a layer of
its own oil.  Perhaps if I had a driveway or the spare cash I would buy
the truck and fix up that engine (it seems to call to me when I look at
it) but for now, I'm going to walk away from it.

Back to lurking for now,

 i have bought a few late model seats 95-97, one is the buckets with the
small bucket in the middle with the fold down arm rest and the other is just
a cloth bench seat with the high backs, will the buckets fit easily in my 79

also, i have the back seat out of a 96 extended cab that matches the front
buckets, will it fit in my 79 ext cab?

When welding sheetmetal you will be much happier not using flux core wire.
Use a solid wire with gas. Overall you will be much happier using a gas
shielded wire for all welding, as long as the material is relatively clean.
Also use a ER-70-6 wire probably .030 for general welding or .023 for
sheetmetal .Also it is not necessary to use a blended gas. Regular CO2 with
the above wire will do just fine. A 75/25 gas mix is an option but at
greater expense.All mig machines will run either flux core wire or gas
shielded as long as the machine has a gas solenoid.Some lower cost machines
don't have this feature. Check out a Millermatic 185 machine. It will do
everything that a enthusiast would ever want to do. It is a 220 volt
machine. Also try using a gas shielded flux core wire for all your heavier
welding, you will be pleasantly surprised at the results. Yes, these wires
are all position, so with some practice out of position is easily
accomplished.They are not for sheetmetal though. Hands down Solid wire with
a shielding gas is the best for sheetmetal.

Well anything is possible with enough $$.  I worked for a Caterpillar dealer
and had a cab shipped to us from Austrailia. Turned out it was the wrong one,
but they did ship it.  Dont ask how much it cost, Im sure it was more than I
could scrounge up.  If the probs arent bad I go with repair panals, A good
weld job can turn even a soso panal into a nice repair.  Thats where the
magic of a great welder comes in.

Hi again!

Does somebody with welding experience here could shed some light
about flux-core wire for MiG welding? I remember about 1 or 2 years
ago in a street-rodder magazine that some company had developped some
flux-core wire SPECIFICALY for welding sheetmetal. I don't have a
MiG welder yet, but that is my next "toy" when money is gonna be
thicker in my humble leaking wallet. I'd much prefer to use
flux-core instead to have to use argon gaz mixtures, cheaper that way:
no argon gaz tanks to pay rent for. I know, you can use flux-core
for sheet metal, but I'd like to know witch brand is better for
sheetmetal.

Many thanks again!

Gerry,

I have a Lincoln 110 volt gasless wire-feed welder ( $220 at Home Depot). I
wanted to use the MIG attachment ($89 at Home Depot), for this but buying the
gas bottle was expensive in Memphis (best price was over $100). I went ahead
and used it on one body panel application. It is a dirty weld. And it used a
lot of flux cored wire. It is a lot more expensive than regular wire. I did
do my frame welding with a 220 volt stick welder.

What is an Acadian?

I think it is a shim and needs to be reinstalled.  Without it the starter
gear will engage farther.  If the gear bottoms out on the ring gear I think
this would cause stress on the ring gear teeth.

Can you move the door a little after it is shut?  Check the striker post on
the door jamb.  There should be a plastic bushing/sleeve around the striker.
After time it becomes brittle and cracks and falls off.  Then the door latch
mechanism is trying to lock on a post that is about 1/4 inch smaller in
diameter.  I have found these posts in the help section at the local
autoparts store.  I didn't even notice the plastic sleeves until my drivers
side fell off and the door started rattling.  Then I compared the passenger
door and saw the difference.

Folks,

Since I bought the '67 which is finished, I find myself with a lot of extra
parts which I will part with *very reasonably*. I am parting out a '68 F250
Camper Special. I have already sold the engine (the 390 I rebuilt last
year), and I am keeping the power steering gear, so don't ask about those.
Other choice parts include:

recently recovered seat - dark blue, not original fabric, but very pretty

flywheel and clutch for 390 - Borg Warner heavy duty, diaphragm spring type

NP435

D60 - bad pinion and carrier bearings, usable 3.73 gearset. You'll have to
take the whole truck to get it, though.

Nice Cab - new Dennis Carpenter cab mounts, POR-15 on under side

usable bed

2 doors, OK condition

16" steel wheels - 8 lug - two 7.5", two 8"

ranger trim

Write me off list with requests. I am in Northern Virginia.

Yes and yes. Don't screw up the studs as newer studs typically are just
a hair too small and don't seat right. I've tried finding the correct
studs going through about 100 different one's at several auto parts
places and even the closest one's were just not close enough.

What I would do is keep the vin and plates current on the 64 since
most of the time they look at the door tag.  Since I don't know what
state you are in and what they look at for registration and such I
can't really tell you but most of the time it really isn't a problem.

BTW what year rolling chassis is it?

I have taken an engine from a F600, about 76 vintage and used in an early chassis with the b/house mount and front mount under balancer. This should be the same as 64, the last year for this type mount. The b/house from the 600 had two sets of tranny bolt holes on r/side. A narrow spaced and a wide spaced mount. It fit different trannies. I took the 4-spd from the 56 that I was building and bolted it up to the 600 b'house with no problem. Only diff in trans was the 600 had a BIG pilot bearing shaft. It had same clutch splines as 56. The trans is a T-98 I belive, witch I still have and would sell/give away, and appeared no diff on outside as ones for p/ups. SO, try looking at big trucks in yards with FE or FT type engines to get a b'house that will fit your engine AND have mounting ears. Get ALL the mount pads and bolts, some differences thru years.

It depends on your State.  In Nevada, it could go either way.  I know a guy
who has a 67 Bug on a toyota 4x4 frame, its registered as a 67 Bug.  But My
dads 4x4 was built frame up, and is registered according to the #'s on the
frame.  Your DMV will likely be the only people who know, but I suggest you
call a few times, and talk to different people, you will get different
answers, but the answer that comes up the most is usually right.

Hi,
My name is Marty Copeland I live in Satsuma,Al. I own a 79 Ford Bronco.I

There are no plastic sleeves on neither one of the posts.  I guess that's my

I will also re-install the spacer for the starter.

Subject: Replacement Floor pans?


Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should be looking for in terms
of replacement floor pans for my '78 Bronco?  I've found pans at LMC
Truck, Mills Supply, and JCWhitney.  Does anyone have any experience with
any of these pans(good or bad.)  What thickness of metal should I be
looking for since it is the floor pan and has to support my (shall we say)
"ample" frame.  I'm going to have a friend weld it in for me since I've
got zero experience with welding or bodywork either for that matter.  Any
and all help would be greatly appreciated.

TIA,

Man, this all sounds so good I can't wait to get it done on mine.  I was
hoping there would be an improvement in the way the system worked beyond
just getting rid of the leaky and vulnerable ram assist stuff.  Sounds
like it will have the kind of feel I am looking for.  Thanks, Bill.

Having a truck that is this way I can say the cab on mine is what determines
it in this state.

Might I make a suggestion too ?  DOCUMENT which parts are from what, the guy
I got the truck from had to scratch his brain a while to think of what years
and then he got them all backwards, now I know what I put under there, but if
I ever sell it I'll probably print off my web page so they can see what parts
are from what years ...

Subject: Re: '65 Engine Identification
Date: Mon, 4 Dec 2000 12:54:18 -0800

I have the Shop manuals for the 65 Ford Trucks and thought you'd want to see
what they have to say:

F10 = Model = F100
A = Engine Code = 6 cyl 330 CID
D = Assembly Plant = Dallas Texas
872504 = Series = August 1966

the 4th digit is the engine code.  IF this were a 65 truck, an engine code
of "A" would be a 6 cyl 330 engine.  BUT because the last 6 digits (the
series) is 872504, this is NOT a 65 truck, it is a 66 truck built in August
1966 at Dallas.

My 65 F100 is an original owner, and all the codes in the shop manual match
my truck right down to the colors, so I trust these manual.

I also have the LMC catalogs which do NOT match my truck, but do indicate
that the "A" is a 6 cyl 240 engine for the 1966 truck.

the rest of the numbers:
129 = Wheel Base Inches
WH = 2 tone exterior (65 shop manual show W as Medium Blue but has no "H")
F100 is the Model (no duh, right?)
B = Interior (Blue Woven Plastic & Blue Vinyl w/foam cushion)
81 = Body Code = Convention Cab
C = Transmission code = Unknown - it's not in the 65 shop manual
09 = Axle = 3.70 -3.3M

05000 = Gross Vehicl Weight
129 = Certified Net Horse Power
4000 = RPM's
62 = DSO = Houston Tx

Keep in mind, these are all from the 65 Shop Manuals and based on the VIN
series, your truck is definately NOT a 65, but a 66, so maybe someone with
the 66 shop manuals can help you out.

regarding what Darrell & Tweety said: the engine code "J" (for a 65) is a 6
cyl 240 engine.
I know this for a fact, because my original owner 1965 F100 is F10JR698945
and everything about it matches the shop manual to a "T"

Ford Truck Enthusiasts has had a tradition of holding an
fund-raiser each year in support of a worthy cause.  This
year's cause is especially worthy and hits close to home.

During the SEMA show in Las Vegas I had the opportunity
to meet with long time FTE member Darrell (aka JumpinFord)
and one of our newest members, his friend "Scooter."  We
had a great time having lunch on Saturday and hanging out
after lunch.

A few days after the SEMA show, Scooter passed away rather
suddenly during an epileptic seizure. Though I didn't know
Scooter long, I can say that he was an very nice guy.  He
was also very funny and had a lot of talent (he was an actor
who's been on several shows/movies). A photo of Scooter can
be found on the FTE web site at:

http://www.ford-trucks.com/sema/sema1/html/image041.htm

Scooter (Lee Stephan) was a young man and was survived by
his wife and two children, ages 3 and 5.  Sadly, they are
not financially in a good spot, especially during this time ....
