From: Josh Keady <keady wizzards.net>


Switch in, fuse replaced, lights work.  Never realized how nice it is to see
your gauges when it's night... and as an added bonus, I can finally put a
fuse in for the courtesy lights without it blowing every time I turn on the
headlights (dimmer switch would occasionally spark when the switch went on,
causing both the instrument panel light fuse and the courtesy light fuse to
blow.)

As for the Elite... yeah, I imagine it was a pretty neat car (I'm only 17,
so I don't have much first-hand experience)  I've seen some websites
dedicated to it, and it looks pretty classy.

We had a '74 Ranchero for quite a while, and used it to tow our 17' travel
trailer.  The trailer is a '63 Ideal that weighs a couple of million
pounds... we had a weight distribution hitch, but because of the relatively
light-duty coil springs in the rear, we had to put way too much weight on
the front end of the Ranchero to keep the back end from sitting too low.
Every winter, after we were done with our camping trips you could notice a
difference in the ride-height... in pictures between about 1991 and 1995 you
can see that the rear is gradually pointing more sky-ward and the front end
is getting ever-closer to the ground.  It was a pretty solid rig, however.
Dad sold the Ranchero in 1995 for a 1970 Chevy Custom Camper/20 with a 350,
and as Chevy trucks go, it's none too bad.  (The F-350 was my grandpa's
incase you're wondering how that fits in to the picture :-)</lifestory>

Anyhow, thanks for the help,

Thanks a bunch for all the inputs. I hadn't considered the Ford dealer though
partly cause I don't have any good contacts there and it's age. Once I did
get a front pan for a 69 mustang from the dealer though so I guess I
shouldn't rule em out just yet.

As for the shell replacement, yes I still have the front wheel tubs in place
so I guess they'll be coming out for a while also. Rust shouldn't be too much
of a problem as it lived for 15+ years as a Texas truck before moving to
Florida (I know where all the paint flaws are now as the rust has taken it's
place, next project after working the front end and some more minor engine
work).

As far as I can tell the new parts that most places sell are all made by
Dennis-Carpenter so you might want to check with them first.  I've been
pricing floor pans and found them at Autokrafters, Mills Supply, JC
Whitney, LMC Truck, Dennis Carpenter, and a few other places.  They all
seem to be the same part.  Autokrafters catalog even says that they carry
parts from DC.  I ended up purchasing from JCWhipme since they had a sale
on the items.  According to my JCW catalog you're looking for part
#94EF7711BF and its listed as $139.95 in the May sale catalog I've got.
Most of their stuff doesn't appear on the website so you'll probably have
to call em.

In any case the grille shell isn't that hard to do.  You'll have to remove
the headlights, the bumper, and the fender liners.  The reason for the
fender liners is that there a number of bolts (maybe 4 per side) that bolt
through from inside the fenders that are a pita to get to.  You'll need a
long extension for most and possibly a swivel socket for the top-most one.
 It took me about an hour to put mine back on during my Bronco swap
project during the summer.

If you've got any other questions just ask.  I've been through most all of
the parts on my '78 vintage bronco at one point in time in the past 9
months.

Actually, I found that not having those plastic wheel tubs in place allows
dirt and snow and crap to get kicked up into the door hinge. It gets throw
right up along that front fender and makes a good mess. If you actually get
in there with a spray hose on a semi-regular basis and clean it out, it's
probably not a concern but I'm real lazy about washing any part of my

Not only that, I can hear the cogs grinding in the tranny right before the

As most of you know I have a '65 F250 4X4 that i drive every day.  I need a couple of pieces for it that don't seem to grow on trees.

I need a shackle bracket for the rear of the driver's side front spring.  Some doofus broke it and welded it up to where you can't get the bolt out to replace the spring bushing.  I want to rebush the front springs.

I also need a center steering link.  The same doofus welded one of the tie rod ends to it, I guess it was stripped who knows.  I want to replace the tie rod ends too, so I need the center link.

I would think that the one-ton 2WDs up to '66 would be the same on both things, if anyone has a parts truck please let me know.

Greetings,

I have recently acquired a 1970 F100 360 cid, and I'm trying to do the 'ol
Duraspark conversion.  I'm having difficulty removing the distributor body
from the engine.  Can someone please enumerate how the distributor is
removed?  There's a bolt holding a retaining flange, but after removal the
distributor is still pretty stiff.  I'm sort of an amateur, so any help
would be great.  I'm assuming there's some other magical bolt that needs
to be removed.  Otherwise, they only way I can see to remove this thing is
patient, brute force pulling (and that doesn't seem right).

Also, if anyone has any wiring diagrams or other advice for this
conversion, send it my way.  I already have the duraspark unit with the
blue grommet, pulled from a junkyard.

Waiting for help...

Some times these distributors get stuck due to varnish and guck build up on
the distributor and internal block areas.  After removing the bolt and hold
down bracket the housing should rotate.  If it does, rotate it back and forth
while pulling up.  You might want to spray some WD-40 or similar solvent
around the housing where it exits the block.  It should come out.  If it will
not rotate then you are in for a rough go at it.  20 years ago I bought a
Snap-On distributor adapter to attach to a slid hammer, it was "U" shaped and
went between the block and distributor.  It works wonderfully, I have removed
many distributors with out harm.  However, using screw drivers, pry-bars, and
brute force I have broken many distributors (the castings break easily).  One
about a year ago, (yeah, too big of a hurry and did not use the slide hammer)
price of a replacement distributor is around $32.00 with trade in.  Good Luck

Subject: 300 4bbl additional help?

Here's where my 300 I-6 is right now:

500 cfm Edelbrock carb with single plane intake and headers into duals
and generic turbo mufflers.  Stock internals (cam, etc).  Idle mix and
speed were set using a vacuum gauge (got around 19" at idle).

The engine performs great off idle and under light acceleration, but
it's hugely lean under WOT, especially when the secondaries kick in--the
engine stumbles, surges, and spits back through the carb.

I tried swapping in richer primary metering rods and secondary jets.
That didn't do a whole lot--might have improved things a tad below 3000
rpm, but once I hit 3000, the engine still hits a wall.  I know it's
not _just_ rpm-related, since the engine makes power up to 4000-4500 under
partial throttle.  Might even make power beyond that, but I'm afraid
to find out!

So, what is yall's votes for the problem?

1. Weak fuel pump?  This _is_ the stock pump with ~95k on it.

2. Carb still jetted too lean?  Seems strange for a "race" carb
to be overly lean from the factory.  I would think they'd err
on the rich side...

3. Carb simply too big for this engine?  The owner of the shop that
did my duals just finished replacing an Edelbrock 4bbl with a Holley
2bbl on a V-6 non Ford...

I'm leaning toward #1.  I suppose I could just replace the pump and
see what happens.  Either that or borrow a fuel pressure gauge, though
I'm not sure how I'd get a look at the gauge without either removing
the hood or temporarily routing the fuel line through the cab...

All ideas appreciated!

Maybe not--can't seem to shake a lean problem when I floor it.  I'm
thinking maybe the fuel pump can't keep up.  Did you ever have that
kind of problem on any of your 300s?

I have some questions for the crew out there on the internet world.  I have a 79
with a 300 and a 4bl ecnomizer i think is the type not sure size and want to say the
brand is holly or edlebrokei need to check but none the less i have a manul choke on
it and boy i am not sure f it even works so maybe a few tips to check if it is
working and the major question is that when cold and even some times when warm if i
floor it and let out the cluth is bogs for a sec and since i am impatent with it i
floor it and dump the cluth and basically roast it out not healthy i know.  BUt what
is causing this wondering if the stock fule pump is not keeping up with it and it is
something simple like that.  Also one more quick one since i am picking peoples
brains out there I have an offenhauser intake on what kind of header will fit and
what cost.  The orginal owner had one on it before it cracked and he put the stock
on back on it.  Thanks in advance for your help
