>Hey guys,

>Well, the new year is just upon us and I've been able to save enough money
for that 460 build up. The question is, does a 460 with headers fit between
the fender skirts of a 65? Also will the width of the 460 effect the
steering gear box or column? I've got plans to swap the standard steering
for power steering.

>The truck now has a 352 in it, but we already have most of the 460 parts
ready to go.It is a camper special with ancient wiring. It actually has a
second fuse block under the hood, on the fender skirt, behind the battery.
We plan on rewiring the whole thing.

Brian, the 460 fits perfectly in that truck.  I used motor stands from a 77 460 truck, which are hard to come by, but can be had with a little searching.  the frontends are basically the same from 65 to 79.  I used the stock trans cross-member, but had to move it back about 2 inches, no big deal.  I also used a complete front end out of a 78 with disc brakes and HD springs.  you'll need the discs for sure.  the ps steering box came out of said 78, but i had to dimple the shock tower for it to clear. no big deal, i just bopped it with a ballpeen hammer until it cleared. heat would have made it more easy, but oh well.  steering collum length is an issue, but again, i used the tilt collumn out of said 78 truck. If you use the HD radiator, you'll have to drop it 3/4 of an inch or so to clear the hood, but again, no big deal.  I used a fan shroud from a 77 400 truck, which had to be shortened 1" to clear the front of the motor.  it is tight, but it works nice.  all was easy, no maj!
or fabrication, and the parts ar
e ava. have fun

Dear list,

    I'm trying to figure out if a 79 Dodge's wheels will fit on a 79
Bronco's axles.  The person I might purchase them from said they didn't fit
his 83 F-150, so if the lug patterns from 79 Bronco and 83 F-150 are the
same, I know the answer to my question.

Thanks,

I'm not positive, but I believe the 79 and 83 would be the same spacing, 5 on 5 1/2".

Nope, wont fit.  Those Dodges used a car pattern of 5 on 4.5, your truck, and
the 83 have a 5 on 5.5 pattern.

Good day all.
I purchased a 79 Bronco last week.  After checking all fluids, I noticed
that the tranny fluid was at least 2 quarts high.  It was driven very
little last week, but everything worked fine when it was cold.  It
shifted fine.  When it gets warm, if you just use drive it works fine.
If you stop, put it in park, it will go back into drive.  If you put it
in reverse, it will not go back into drive. I originally thought that it
was becuase of the high fluid level.  This past weekend I drained the
tranny, changed the filter and filled it with the proper amount of
fluid.   I did not drain the convertor.  The fluid looked dark red, did
not smell burnt (I have blown up my share of trannies) and there were
not any unusual particals in the pan.

Any ways, after filling with the correct amount fluid, the tranny
shifted fine agian in the foward gears, but agian once the tranny warmed
up, it would not shift back into drive.  When cold it shifts solidly
into gear, it doesn't slip into any of the gears.  I have had a problem
similar to this, but it wouldn't go into gear all of the time.  Is there
a chance that I still have air in the fluid passages from when the fluid
was to high?  Do I have to flush the whole tranny? Or is the tranny due
for a rebuild?

TIA
