Didn't think you were.  I was just passing along some info I thought some
might enjoy :-)  Bob is a real truck nut.  He built a flat head roadster
from junk parts he found lying around all over the country just to see what
it would cost him and he made a really nice open roadster with wood bed and
fully detailed flathead V-8 for about $1500 and drove it to the show :-)

Subject: Re: Engine Swap Questions
Date: Wed, 28 Feb 2001 00:23:29 -0800


While I agree in principle I don't think it will work out to be much of a
problem in reality.  What I did is mount the tranny on the cross member to
anchor that end and just made the engine fit in the bay in such a way that
it looks straight and the passenger side exhaust just fits past the frame
with slight notching.  If you use headers or the truck passenger side
manifold notching is not required.  Another clue is to look at the way the
fan interfaces with the radiator but if you get the dumb thing centered in
the bay so it looks right I don't believe you will have any trouble with it.
The front darn well better be higher than the rear or you will have some big
problems though :-)

One fellow who mocked up a 460 in his Ranger (late model, small ranger) used
a tube that just fit the output bushing in the tranny (an empty case used
just for the mockup so he could run the tube all the way to the crank) and
moved stuff around till it found the input of the rear diff :-)  Lot of work
if you ask me.  That's what they made U-joints for :-)  I do agree that
straighter is better, strength wise and wear increases as the angles
increase etc. but I don't see it as a real serious issue in this case
because the location of the engine will be so close to original when it
finds it's natural home you won't be able to measure the difference in most
cases, I would say.  That's certainly the way it turned out with my 78.  You
can't swing it much in any directon without hitting something so it pretty
much goes where it goes and that's it :-)

The biggest issue with home made mounts is doing a decent job of clearing
all the junk in there and still have something that will support the engine
and handle the torque it puts out.  Mixing stock small block parts with 460
parts makes a weak mount but that's how I did my first ones.  I made the
second ones out of LTD mounts and welded the bottom part to the truck with a
bunch of scrap metal for support.  Ugly as sin but it works and it's all 460
mount stuff :-)  With the L&L or other after market swap mounts you just
bolt the darn thing in.  Trust me, work a little overtime and buy the
mounts, it aint worth it to make them.

You're right, Darrel, about that attention to detail. Modeling is also a good
way to teach a kid to follow directions and work in a logical order. That other
point you touched on, about using the model to see how different paint treatments
look, is great, too. If you don't like how it looks, just soak the paint off
with brake fluid and start fresh. My latest project is a 1/25 scale 40's-50's
era Texaco gas station, ordered from Design Detail in Seattle. This is an awesome
kit and will make a great diorama to take to car shows.

I think that the cab has to at least be lifted, if not fully removed. What
I've found works REALLY well is to have a set of the tripod mounted, crank
the cable camper jack with the angle iron lifting parts. Lifts the cab off,
allows you to roll the chassis out and then you can set the cab down or at
least block it for safety and change to your hearts content.

To seperate the upper/lower cab mount use a piece of rebar. After you've
gotthe bolt out, hammer the rebar from the top and it should push the bottom
half out. This is what I did on my '87 ranger and the radiator supports on
my'67.

I'm talking about the whole shootin match: the big sheet metal horns that
are spot welded to the floor pan. The new ones from Dennis Carpenter were
very nice, but very major work to put in. I had good luck (on my previous
truck) removing the old ones with a spot weld cutter and bolting the new
ones in place with lots of 10-24 bolts (cab on it's back in the driveway).
The bolts made it possible to pull the mount up tight to the floor pan as
well as to POR-15 the back of the mount including the area in between the
joint. If you wanted it to look completely original, use a few bolts to
pull it up tight, then duplicate the spot welds (with a MIG), then remove
the few bolts and weld over the holes.

BTW, the reason I am prohibited from such behavior is that SWMBO has
spoken. No more frame-offs in the driveway.

As many of your are aware "dot com" companies have been hit
hard in the last few months.  FTE is now feeling the
affects.  Our ad revenues through our reseller have taken
a serious hit and have plunged by 80%.  FTE is taking steps
to insulate itself from the advertising slowdown.

Many of you have enjoyed the use of our bandwidth with free
classifieds.  As is the case with many web sites, the free
lunch is over.  Our classifieds use a significant amount of
bandwidth per month and we >>HAVE to come up with new revenue
sources in order to keep FTE operational.  Thus, we're
implementing a >>reasonable fee<< for placing an ad.

The classified ads will now be $4.00 for up to 45 days plus
an additional $1.00 for each additional category you place it
in.  After placing your ad you will be given a link to a page
on our secure server to pay for the ad.

Our classifieds have over 75,000 visitors per month and this
number grows every month. $4.00 for that kind of exposure
represents a tremendous value.  Anyone who thinks $4.00 is
too much to pay ought to consider the thousands I've shelled
out to keep the site operational and the need to continue to
keep the site going.

Thank you for your understanding as we implement this changes.

BTW, if they aluminum 351W heads will work on a 351C does that mean I could

set-up.

There's a very recent thread about 400 stroker motors and a guy who built a
667 hp, 564# torque monster stroked to 4.1". He's in the middle of building
a 4.2" stroker now. Not cheap however.

I have already started my '68 Mercury Prosteet truck but things are a
little slow due to
priorities set forth by my wife etc.  Money is always a factor and the
sooner the 1971 4x4 sells the sooner I
go hogwild on the '68. Frame work will begin as soon as the addition on my
house gets finished - probably in early May.  Until then, there is no time
to do much except look and wish it were farther along than it is.

Deck heights between the 302, 351W, 351C and 351M are all different so the
spacing between the heads is also different.  The intakes can not be
interchaged between any of these.  The 351M and 400 do interchange as do the
429 and 460.  The heads on the first 4 do interchange but the 335 series is
a dry manifold where the 302 and 351W are wet so some machining is necessary
to swap between them.

Subject: ADMIN: New list guidelines


A couple of weeks ago the message board guidelines were
overhauled.  They have worked out well and they leave
little gray areas as opposed to the old guidelines.
Because of their success, the mailing list guidelines
have been brought in sync with the message board
guidelines.

Please read the new guidelines at:

http://www.ford-trucks.com/faq.html

These are the new Terms Of Service the lists will be
operating under.  If you do not agree with them, please
unsubscribe from the list(s) or contact me personally.

Regards,

Yep...looks like they have a server/provider problem. It worked for me
earlier today. Keep trying 'cause that is the correct URL.

The best question is "How fast do you want to spend??"

I should add that it's probably not impossable to stroke a 400,
but a stock 460 would be cheaper to put together than a custom
cranked 400,  I'M NOT SAYING EVERYONE *SHOULD*
REPLACE YOUR 400 WITH A 460,


I hope this doesn't restart the war...

the 351 w aluminum heads i'm speaking of are made just like the cleveland
heads but have the cooling passages, you can't use a 351 w intake with these
heads on a 351c, these heads are for  serious racing applications.

Subject: fan clutch 78 f-150


I have a 1978 F-150 2wd 351m w/C-6 and NO AC. It looks
like it would be fairly easy to add a silicone
temperature controlled fan clutch and perhaps new fan
blades, eliminating what appears to be the spacer in
the process. This should (in theory) give better
cooling at low speed, better gas mileage (ha!) and
less noise at highway speed. I think some of the A/C
vehicles came w/fan clutch. Anyone already gone ....
