Well this is my first Fe engine and there is a couple things I'm wondering
about. 1) There is a knocking noise coming from the engine, not sure what or
where it's coming from, but my dad says it might be the wrist pin, I was
just curious what any other theories might be and if it is a wrist pin how
much longer does the engine have? 2) there a fairly loud sounding exhaust
leak, but I can't find where any air is coming out, the noise is coming from
the engine not the exhaust pipe. Thanks for any information.

Unfortunately a few minutes after I wrote the last questions, my engine
seized up when it was warming up, it now makes the same noises my 1964 C-10
does, just the clicking of the starter.  I originally saw this truck for
sale on this list, I got the truck about the middle of may of 2000.  I have
pictures if you want to see it. When the guy here we talked about it for
awhile and found out that it was sitting for awhile.  I knew I had to go
through the whole thing. I replaced all the brakes except a few lines. I
change the tranny filter and all the fluids, degunked the heads.  And I
still don't have the right carburator on it.  I put some different additives
to the tranny since the bands are pretty much gone.  Then it was just
sitting here for awhile then about 3 weeks ago I just decide to drive it to
town and it worked great considering it had no choke and the brakes are
bleed right yet. so the last. couple weeks we drove it the heater and
radiator hoses had to be replace, and the heater core.  I also fixed the
holes in the firewall from the a/c that I took out, the a/c works perfect
just needs to be charged (probably why it hummed) I heard that the 360 and
C-6 were strong but I guess they don't last forever. I'm still not sure if
it is a 360 or something else it might have been changed in 72 because alot
of parts say 72 on them. Well thats sad story of one 1968 F-250. I'm not
sure what to do with it yet since I don't have the money to fix it or my
1964 C-10 or my 1979 Ford Farimont.  If you have any info on where I could
get another 360 or 390 I'd appreciate it.
send money to

How long have you been on this list?  I was here when it was still pooping
yellow and I like it just like it is :-)

Subject: Accelerator Pump Parts?
From: Chico Woodhill <chico_woodhill punkass.com>


I opened up my 1974 Motorcraft carb accelerator pump and found that the
little red rubber circular flap valve had detached from its stem. The stem
was lying in the carb bowl, the valve was lying in the pump chamber.

Is it possible to buy just that part, or just the parts for the accelerator
pump, instead of buying a whole carb rebuild kit? If so, where would I find
it?

Humans are not ever going to be used to dying because they were created with
"Eternity" in their hearts.  They were designed to live forever and even
after 6000 years of existence they still don't understand or really accept
death.  It's unnatural even though inevitable in this system.  The death of
Dale brings a lump to my throat and I didn't even know him and hearing
stories of other tragic deaths does too.  People are going to remember the
ones they know but that doesn't necessarily mean they don't respect the
lives of the others as well.  What is really sad about those GI's deaths is
that there has to be war in the first place but that's a discussion for some
other list, I'm sure :-)

I heard today that his belt didn't hold too.  Time and unforseen
occurances..........no one is immune.  Kind of a humbling thought, eh?

I've never seen them separate.  Generic after market Holleys are the only
ones I've ever seen separate parts for.  I have seen needles and seat
separately and floats but none of the other parts.

A call for help to anyone who has pictures of L&L's fenderwell headers mounted on a 460 in a F150 4X4. I just want to see the physical placement before ordering (20% restocking fee, you want to be right the first time). Post a message or e-mail of list would be appreciated.
To keep the content worthwhile, I'm just finishing up a ram air set-up for my truck. Twin 5" snorkel inlets using a K&N 14X5 filter and K&N filter top. Just have to weld in the 5" inlets into the rad saddle next week. I'll take some pictures when its done.
Thank everyone.

I am starting to put my suspension back under my frame, I just wanted to
know if any of you guys think I should treat all the rubber bushings with
something to keep them from getting brittle, especially the axel bushings as
they would be a pain to change later on down the road.

This may be a long shot and wishful thinking for you, but, check to see if
the fuel pump is the source of this knocking.

If this knock is at the wrist pin, it is more likely a worn bushing in the
rod rather than a bad wrist pin only.

I have never seen instructions for installing bushings that did not include
lubrication before installation.  I personally use antiseize because it is
water proof but there are probably better rubber lubes out there that will
last as long as antiseize and do a better job, I just don't know what they
are off hand.

Lubing on installation does three things:  Keeps the noise down (reduces
squeaks etc...), makes the installation easier and allows the rubber to
actually get all the way into position before being pinched or smashed by
the weight etc..  It allows the rubber to flow out into all the corners with
minimal adjusting so it can do the job it's desigened to do.  Don't assume
the rubber shoulders and bosses will go where they are supposed to, make
sure they do before tightening anything.

One suggestion, if you don't require stock parts for your rebuild then how
about poly-urethane from the vendors such as Energy Suspension. I changed
out all the bushings on my truck 7 years ago and they still look new. Plus
they stand up better to the tough life they endure and the truck drives
beautifully (mind you new rubber would have worked too, just not as long).
Good Luck.
