Ive got a Craftsman Clikity Clicker.  Ok so thats not the name, but thats
what it does.  I've beaten the snot out of it, but Everytime I have it
checked, It is dead on accurate.  Snapon will do the same thing mind you, but
for a LOT more dinero.

I always over build but I built one out of 3" square tubing with diagonal
bracing for the upright which just clears a 460 transmission flange with
starter attached and used an old dana 44 front hub as the pivot.  Only thing
I did wrong was bought cheap rubber wheels that totally get flat with the
460 on it :-)  I put it where I want to work on it and leave it there :-)

I have a hydraulic motor I may hook up to it one day to turn it........Could
have used the brake parts too to lock it in place but I was in a hurry and
overlooked that idea :-)

Back in the old days we called the dual direction, clicker type a "Talking
Torque Wrench" because it would both "talk" to you and poke you at the same
time when the torque was made.  Mine's a PC and still seems to work well but
I've never had it checked.  None of the parts I've put together with it have
fallen off though :-)

We used to have the spring handle type in the army but they were a real pain
when you had to put some muscle into the torque because your hand would
start shaking and the needle would bounce all over the place so you wound up
guessing at it anyway....might as well have guessed in the first place :-)
I love my talking torque wrench but the needle type would work well and is
actually prefered IMHO for inch pound measurments for setting up diffs
etc....  Foreign made Lead screws have a preload measured in NewtonMeters
which is another small value measurement commonly used which would work well
with this type too.  For heavy stuff, get the clicker :-)

We also had one with a dial on it that worked like a drag tach and would
maintain it's position at the highest torque reached so you could read it
later which was nice when you needed 300# or so torque and had to grunt and
close your eyes and grit your teeth to get the value :-)  We usually used a
pipe and had at least two guys pulling and a third guy watching the dial for
that one :-)

Thank you to everyone who answered my earlier post on headers. I've decided to go with the L&L fenderwell headers and would like any input regarding exhaust routing. I'm tossing around whether to go with it down the outside of the frame rail to a tube type muffler and a turn out or wrap the pipe back over or under the frame and use the flowmasters and turndowns. Any suggestions, opinions or pictures are appreciated. Thanks.

I just ran the part number through Ford last month and it still showed
available then. That dosen't mean it wasn't just dropped though. The number
is: D8TZ-8200A and has a Retail price of $204.60 through Ford. Dealer Cost
is $122.76 .  If your positive your dealer checked this number then I would
call one of the many dealers around the country that still shows having
some in stock and have them UPS one out to you. I'm not sure where you live
but here is a few that has stock:

Dan, Thanks for the imfo.We recently got a new counter man at the local dealership and he doesn't like to look things up that aren't on the computer.The one that retired could just right down the number when you told him what you needed,he would order it,and you had it in three days.I may have a serious talk with the new one.

I really prefer SNAP-ON if you can afford them a very high quality torque
wrench.  They also can calibrate them if you wish and they are repaired free
for one year if you happen to need it.

I am looking at getting a 300 cid engine. The price is very nice.
However, there are smog (AIR) holes which my truck's current engine
doesn't have.

Does anyone know how I can plug up the holes?

Thanks.

Hey all

Thought you might like checking this out. It was the warantee form my
dad got when he bought our 69 pickup back in 71. 5/50 powertrain
warantee for 25$, not bad!!! CJ, Cobra and BOSS motors were not eligible
for extended warantees, wonder why?? LOL!!! Enjoy!!

table for Jasper Engines and you can get prices on their website.

    Hey folks ,
                     Anybody know where I might be able to get a new stock
vin # plate made for my 64 f-100 ? I can see the raised numbers , but the
jams have been painted so many times that I don't think I can clean it up
.And if I could , I don't think I can get it back to the way it's supposed to
look , with the black back ground and white letters . Any ideas ???



Thanks
