Got a 360 from another list memeber.  Started opening it up with my 8 yr old
boy.  He seems to be into it. :-)   So far so good.  Got the distributor out
no fuss.  Pulled the balancer.  Don't have the bolt for it.  Are those easy
to get?  Ususal problem with siezed bolts in top of exhaust manifolds.  A
pox on the engineer who decided to fully drill those holes.  ALL of the
bottom bolts came out no sweat.  I may just leave the manifolds on and let
the machine shop deal with it.  Might be easier for him if I don't dink it
up.  Haven't got the intake off yet but don't see any sludge.  I do see some
rust on push rods and such.  Probably condensation.  I don't think this is a
bad thing since I'll probably replace anyway.

I'm not in too much of a hurry to get it apart cause the budget won't allow
for going to the machine shop now but it is a nice father son project.

Let you know how the rest of it goes.

Chico,

You could check with your local Ford dealer's part department.  I have
gotten parts like this from my local dealer in the past.  The parts
manager keeps some small parts on hand just for these types of
problems.  Another place to try would be a local shop that does carb
work, they may have the piece you need left over from a carb kit.  It is
possible that your local auto part store may be able to get you the part
also.  Worst case, buy a carb kit.  If the accelerator pump check valve
has failed (that the piece you had fail), your carb is most likely about
due for a rebuild anyway.

Regards,

Kim Barron

Hi Chris,
Unless its a box stock restoration, I think that I'd go with some of the
aftermarket stuff for the bushings and cab mounts. I know that's what I'm
using.

Mr Southerland, I agree with Azie here.  I just happened to be in HI on
buisness when this tragic accident happened.  I took a day's vacation while
there to attend services.  I know their names!  I also happened to be there
when the USS Greenville had an incident with that Japanize fishing boat.
I'm a veteran, lots of list members are, and, if I remember correctly, the
list owners wife is a veteran.  I think more people realize who and what
happens with our military than you give credit for, this is not the best
forum to discuss it I guess.   I'm glad I'm home, safe and in good health!
FTE content:  My 76 F250 didnt want to start after setting two weeks at the
airport parking garage.  I left the dome light on:)  Ever try to push start

Subject: Need some '79 Part Numbers


Hi,

Can anybody with access to a parts book or collision guide help me out
with a couple of Ford part numbers? I need to get the part numbers for
the complete seat belt assemblies in black (if the part number is
different) for both sides on a '79 F-250?
I have a couple of potential sources, but some of them will only search
by part number.

Thanks,

Sean

The intake gets torqued down to 32-35 ft-lbs in this order:
                       4  7  1 9  6
                       x  x  x  x  x
                       x  x  x  x  x
                       5 10 2  8  3
The rocker arm shaft gets torqued down 40 to 45 ft-lbs.

Has anyone removed the dash from a 67-72 cab? I am preparing to change my cab but I would also like to install my dash into my new truck cab.  From what I can see you have a welded bracket on either side of the cab at the bottom of the dash, but what I can't tell is if the front of the dash seam is welded into the windsheild seam where the body panels meet. Can anyone help?
Also does anyone have a source for new front body mounts?
Can't seem to find them in my books.
