Guys:  I am trying to put a 78 Econoline back in good shape.  I have the
mechanics pretty much done and now for the cosmetics.  Does anyone have
a clue where I can get weatherstrip for the back doors and the rubber
that goes around the rear door glass (Opening windows)?  The rest of it
I can get from J.C. Whitless but those two items have eluded my search.

Thanx.

I am going through the same thing with my '77.  The rear weatherstripping is
the same from '75-91 and is still available through Ford.  'taint cheap
though.  I recall each window seal is about $45.

I got lucky and found a '77 in the parts yard that must have been in the
garage all it's life - until it hit a big pole.  I snagged each opening
window glass seal (total of 6 on this van), both front door window seals and
a like new horn pad (with cruise buttons).  Paid $10 for the lot.

Al,

F code, according to my book - The catalog of Ford Truck ID Numbers
1946-1972 deciphers it as a 302.

If you don't admit to them that it is a 400, and cover the valve
cover sticker with some grease and scratch the engine ID off
that sticker, they won't know the difference between a 351M
and a 400 without actually measuring the stroke in the spark
plug hole with a stick.  Emissions inspection places tend to not
go through this much effort, so if it looks like a 351M and you
tell them it is a 351M, they will call it a 351M.

 Ok 4X4 gurus of the list. Here's an interesting
question since I simply don't know the answer. Ford
ran the NP 205's. Did anyone else? An old roommate
of mine bought a Chevy (GASP!) 350 for a Landcruiser
(don't worry... He drives a brand new Ford!) and said
that the guy tossed in the NP 205 that he ran behind
it. Does this sound right?!? I get dibs on it if I can
use it and he can't but I have just about zero
know-ledge of the interchangeability of transfer cases
amongst the different automotive manufacturers. Can
anyone help me out on this? Tony Marino... Are you
listening? You seem to have enough iron laying around
to build a battleship. Maybe you can help? Thanks to
all...  Scott

Ford and the other guys both use a NP205 transfer case. Not sure if their is
a difference between the bolt patterns or not. Cant bring myself to get that
close to the underside of the "other guys" trucks. LMAO. Hope this helps.

Chevy, Ford and Dodge all used the NP205. You need to check and see which
side the differential is on. I can't help you too much on bolt patterns but
you might want to send an email to the folks over at Advance Adapters and
see if they can help. Their website is www.advanceadapters.com.

Yes others used the NP205, in fact you will find that all parts for the
NP205 come in a Mopar bag, or it came from them and was re-bagged.

This is for the guy who just put the 4bbl on his 300 six. Do you know how much
that modification affected your gas mileage? I was thinking about doing it to
my six.

The F350 4x4 was not offered until the 79 model year.   It is an F250 with
the HD front end, which was an option.

Yes, its probably a Chevy 205 which has the output on the passenger side and
won't work.  Plus the input spline count is different between a GM and Ford

Shouldn't be a problem.  There really isn't much of a height difference
between a 31 and a 32.
I ran 33x12.50 Super Swampers on mine for a while.

> It's a '77 F150 4x4, 351M-2v, C6, part time t-case (is that a 205?).
If it's stock, its a 205.

Look at the vin on the drivers door id tag.  If it starts with F3 it is an
F-350.  Course this assumes that the cab and DS door is original.  Let us
know what the VIN is and someone here can decode it for you.
