Assuming it has a 13-56, its just as strong as the 203, and has a better low
range than both the 203 and the 205.  And I wouldn't discount the strength
of the ZF.  I had one last for quite a while behind a healthy Powerstroke.

Eric,

The pictures look good.  Make sure that after you have it all welded,
coat everything with a good paint (I think you said you were using POR
15).  After that dries, use a good seam sealer on both sides.  You will
be good to go after that.

BTW I have the hump that you need.  Let me know.

I really hate to be the bearer of bad news, but usually when you break
those off it means that you also have some bad door hinges.  Mine on my
Supercab are cracked, but not completely broke off.  Every once in
awhile the door will fly back open when I slam it shut.  The hinges are
shot.  Grab the
latch end of the door and try to lift up and down on the door.  There
should not be any movement.

Good Luck.

I have the same dilemma but luckily I have a rust free replacement bed. My
rust problem that I am fixing is from the door back around the side of the
cab (supercab) down on the very bottom. Yesterday I took my angle grinder
and cut the cancer part out 1 inch below were the panel starts to curve
inward. My plans are to insert a piece of sheet metal to replace what was
cut out. I will be putting it under the original sheet metal along the top
and running it outside along the very bottom of the cab.
What is the best method of welding into place? Wirefeed or brazing.

Doublecheck that it is the vent window itself whistling and not the felts being
completely shot in the window channel ... otherwise you can put something under
the latch or look for better latches that will hold it tighter, if things are
too bad you'll have to look at replacing the gaskets (or you could just do that
first I suppose :)

It's name is short for "Water Displacing formula #40,"
(see http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.howstuffworks.com/question155.htm) so I don't
think it has water in it.  OTOH, it still isn't a good long term

Transfer case for my truck (off brand) is over $400 (up to $600) by itself
due to HD status but for this Ford I would expect to pay $250 for each as
Jason says and for the ZF you will pay more but you better get them as a set
or you will have headaches in the install.  The front axle is worth up to
$500 in poor shape and up to $1500 (Boyce sells them for about $1000 for off
brands but has no Ford fronts) in excellent or rebuilt shape.  I'm going to
be fixing up some of my trucks to get them out of here at a profit
(hopefully) so I can get a 350 4x4 or an older one like my favorite 48 F-5
or 6 but not sure if they had 4x4's in those sizes back then.  Trust me, as
soon as I can afford it the off brand is gone in lieu of the Ford HD's.  I
just couldn't pass it up for the price :-) (hope to make a profit off of it
and get the plow for free :-))

If I were working right now instead of retired I would grab a F-350 for
$2000 in a heart beat if it had any sheet metal on it :-)

I agree with offering less for it too.  Just go look at it and point out the
flaws and tell them you really can't justify that much for a truck in that
shape right now but maybe later.....and let them respond with a price.  If
they are in a hurry to get it out of there they will follow you out to your
car with lower suggestions :-)  I once got a guy down from $2500 to $1700 in
one itteration and could have done even better but the truck was too rusty
and I had another one to look at or I would have grabbed it for $1500 I'm
pretty sure.

You can buy the whole window and frame for $75 from Dennis Carpenter and the
strips can be found in JC whittney etc....

You can also buy replacement handles for them which will hold the window
closed a little better but often the frame is rusted so the handle has
nothing to support it so if that's the case you need to get the whole thing.

I heard it is a Kerosene base which is the best water soaker upper ever
invented.  We have to put aditives in our fuel tanks to keep it from gelling
due to this.  This is also the reason it is not a good rust preventiv.  It
"Draws" moisture and eventually is saturated so that the moisture can affect
the steel.  Normal oil will not combine with water so repels it, WD-40 tends
to combine with it If I'm not mistaken.

Cosmoline is the best long term protective coating I've ever seen.  It is
basically a wax based grease with a fast solvent in it so that it penetrates
deep into the holes and crannies but then the solvent evaproates leaving
only the grease...like good Chain lube (which might be another good choice,
not sure?).

Go to a gun shop and see what they suggest for long term storage. Or find a
military arms expert and ask the same question. The military used to coat
items with cosmolene (spelling is a guess) for long term storage. I store my
firearms wrapped in a cloth diaper soaked in gun oil.

I have a 208 that won't stay in high range, 4wd or 2wd, either one.  It was
run without oil for some time apparently so who knows but....Does anyone
have any real time experience with opening one of these up?  Any suggestions
as to where to look for the problem?  My first thought is that the shaft
bearings are trashed and alowing the engagement dogs to come apart.  A worn
shift fork may do it but I suspect this is far more serious.  Fortunately
4lo still works so I can keep the drive cleaned out but I'd like to get it
on the road so I can do my Mother in Law's drive too.  I've seen rebuild
prices on this between $600 and $800 so that's not an option.  Guna hafta
fix er myself.......

I notice that this unit was used in Fords and Chevys in the same years,
80-86 and was used by both in the HD trucks as well as the ligher ones so it
must be rather stout.  Any comments on this will be appreciated :-)

Sounds like something with the forks have worn out or broken.

I have rebuilt an NP207 which is similar in construction to the 208.  They are very simple mechanically and can be rebuilt fairly easy if you get a copy of the overhaul/service manual.  I am lucky enough the local dealer is good about making copies out of the service manual.  My local carquest even copied some pages for me out of a service manual they had.

You should be able to buy a rebuild kit for around $150-200.  That should come with seals, nylon fork wear clips (dont know the technical term), and I think bearings too.  It wont have a chain but that can be purchased seperatly if needed.

Thats not good news, I just put a T-18 into Tweety a lil while ago, and I did
it because I felt it was easier to replace those pins, versus replacing the
aluminum top plate on the NP 435 (which are the respective problems when you
beat the snot out of these, according to dad anyhow)  If anyone has a line on
these, lemme know, I'll buy a dozen.

Subject: Truck won't turn off!


Truck is running, but when I turn the key to the off position, and even
pull it out, the truck keeps running.  The only way I can kill the engine
is to disconnect the battery.  Are there some obvious/normal fixes to this
issue?  Starter relay?

Subject: Re: rust my worst fear


In effect what I was trying to do was replicate Cosmoline by dissolving
Vaseline in the WD40.  When the WD40 went away there would be a
coating of greasy stuff left.

Cosmoline sounds fine but do you have any idea where I can fine it for
retail?   I also assume that you can wash it off with a petroleum solvent at a
later time.

I used to work at a summer job where we hot tanked Iron stove parts in
a real strong HOT solution of a soap made by Oakite.  After the stoves
were rinsed off they would immediately begin to rust.  The soap was so strong
that it would actually dissolve aluminum. We then coated them
with some thin oil , also made by Oakite, and the solvent evaporated and left
a greasy/waxy coating.  I would really like to find this stuff.

Where are you?  My next door neighbor could probably be talked out of a
complete 62 F100 4x4, with a 312, if you are close enough for that to be an
option that interests you.  Truck is in Molalla, Oregon (NW part of the
state, near Portland).

I need to locate a 312 Y block for someone who doesn't have access to the
web. What they need is just a good block, but a whole engine isn't out of
the
question.

Just e-mail me privately with information.
Thank you.

I just jammed a piece of cardboard under my latch. It makes a big
difference! I think eventually the latch bends inward too much and it
doesn't put enough pull on the window.

Exactly! A good piece of solid window channel rubber is another of those
little items I try to snag when I'm at the junkyard. Most of them have big
chunks missing out of them but once in a while you find a nice soft,
complete one that doesn't crack when you try to pull it out of the door.
I've got at least 3 pieces stashed away in my apartment...I'm almost
reached the point where I'm counting the days before I move into the new
house and my trucks and their associated parts move into the new garage!
:-) I don't think SWMBO would tolerate having weather stripping and window
channel rubber decorating an apartment if we were living together in it...

Subject: tranny swap
Date: Fri, 5 Jan 2001 18:19:47 -0800


When I bought my 66 F250, it had a very noisy stock 3 speed tranny.  Also
included in the deal was a NP 435, a 4-speed floor plan, and a drive shaft
which may or may not be the right length.  The 3 speed has gotten much
worse, and does not hold gear lube at all well (I assume the problems to be
related ;^) ) So, time has come to swap transmissions.  I know the drive
shaft will probably not be the right length, and the cross member will
probably need to be moved.  Any other potential problems I should be aware
of?  The truck is not yet my daily driver, so I can afford a little down
time, but would prefer to be as well prepared going in to this as possible.

Thanks

I would like to get the fuel tank out of the cab of my 66 F250.  I'm getting
some fumes in the cab, and it just doesn't seem like a really great spot for
gasoline anyway.  I would like to swap in a tank that will fit between the
frame rails under the bed. Larger capacity would be nice as well.  Any
suggestions for donor vehicles, or a tank that will fit fairly easily?  I
think I saw on a web site somewhere that someone had install a 70's era
suburban tank in a 60's Ford, and that it was a good fit.  Was this someone
from the list, or does anybody know where to find this web page again?

Thanks for the help
