Hi All,
Just wanted to get some opinions on a 1995 F350. I am looking at an F350 W/ crewcab. single rear
wheel with a 351 motor. I do not do alot of heavy duty hauling at this point. I wanted to see what
the rest of your opinions might be.


thanks,

Hey everyone! I sent a message awile back about a clang and shaking in my
truck, I got it fixed finally. The counterbalance weight on the flywheel
came off and I had a bad valve and a cracked head. She's running great now!!
Anyways, that not my only reason for sending a message. I want to put a set
of 33x12.50x15 Wild Country tires on Eagle 589 rims on my truck. I'm pretty
sure i'll need at least 3 inches on body lift to safely fit them. What is
the best lift to go with? And should I go for 4 inches while i'm at it? And
lastly, what kind of effect will these tires have on my speedometer
accuracy?

You can fit 33x12.5 tires on a stock truck as long as your springs are
still in good shape. You might see a bit of rubbing, but probably only
off-road. I know several guys that run Broncos this way -- two of which ran
the Rubicon like this. If you run sway bars front and rear, you have even
less to worry about. You will experience rubbing on the radius arms and
front sway bar with wider tires. You can adjust the steering stops to
prevent this.

I'll be the first to tell you -- I hate body lifts. Don't like the way they
look, and think they're way more trouble than they're worth. Maybe 1-2",
but never 3". If you really want the lift, go with a 3" or 4" suspension
lift. Superlift, Rancho, and Cepek all make very high quality kits.

The speedo will need a new gear. You can buy them at Ford, they come as a
pair for about $8. Pull the speedo cable out of the xfer case (near the
rear output shaft), pull off the retainer clip, replace the gear. You need
to calculate the difference in rolling radius (or circumference, it doesn't
matter) between the new tires and the old ones. The nominal diameter isn't
what you want to go by, as most 33" tires aren't 33". The ratio between the
new and old tire should be approximately equal to the ratio of old and new
speedo gears (you'll want a gear with fewer teeth, btw)

So, old tire/new tire equals new gear/old gear.

Date: Wed, 27 Sep 2000 22:26:49 GMT

Guys,
    I just happend to luck out getting some great deals at a Cabellas
Outfitters store in Minnesota.  I found some Diamond Plate, chrome bed-side
covers, and one for the rail just behind the cab, and also a tow package
listed for an Aerostar Van.  Total Price = $30.
The problem is the Rail covers are listed for a 94-00 Dodge.  I own a 94'
F-150, Standard cab, long bed.
Question I have for you pros/handy-men, will I be able to use these look
enhancers on my truck, or will I have to use some amazing ability to
retro-fit these parts onto my truck?  And for those of you wondering, no
they didn't have any other specific parts.  These were being clearenced and
with amazing %discounts. Hey, for $30, no scratches or dents, who would
argue that for parts that would normally total $350.26.
Thanks for your advice in advance.

I have an odd problem I am hoping you guys can shed some light on.

I have a '96 F350 crew with a 460.

The truck runs good when cool, or when operating in cool weather, but
suffers a lack of power when it gets heat soaked.

It is most apparent when in stop and go traffic with the air conditioning
on.

The temp gauge is pretty steady and the engine does not overheat.
I have scanned for trouble codes but  there are none.
Brand new exhaust including cat and O2 sensor. ( Banks kit)

Has anyone had similar experience? Not sure where to begin my search.

Thanks in advance

Darren

Hello!
So, in the course of getting my Performer intake manifold Jet-Hot coated, I
lost some dang little piece that covers a hole on the left side of the
carburetor and is held down by two bolts.  Anybody know of anything spiffy I
could put in its place, or even know of an old one?  There aren't too many
junk yards out here, near Vail - that's why I'm asking ya'll.  My engine is
an '83 351W.  Thanks.

What's the formula, Wayne? I've run my 302 out .040 and would

Bob,
I don't know the formula off hand. But I am in the process of having my 5.0
redone and the machine shop owner told me that was the displacement on a .030
with stock stroke and rod length, a 310 is a .040 on stock bore and rod
length.

Hi guys,

I have a rattle noise coming from my tranny I think.  I noticed it last
week.  It happens when I step on the gas pedal real good in any gear except
1st or reverse.  It's most noticeable when on the freeway in 5th going over
60.  I pulled the transmission out last weekend because it was time to
change the clutch anyway.  There was a lot of metal on the drain plug when I
drained the fluid, so I took the top cover off of it and took a look inside
and it was real clean all the metal sludge was only collected on the drain
plug.  Also, the input shaft had a lot of play in it, nobody open on the
weekend had an input shaft bearing besides Ford ($90) so I put the tranny
back in and went and picked up the bearing yesterday at a transmission shop
for $50.  Put the bearing in today, got the tranny back in, lots less play
in the input shaft now, but it still makes the rattle noise.  It's the M5OD
tranny.  Anybody got any clues??

Thanks,
Scott

John, if you decide to replace, also stick with a radiator shop.  I try to
stay away from Autozone, but I needed to replace my leaky radiator over a
weekend, and they were the only place with one in stock.  Problem was, my
truck's radiator is small (no A/C, manual) and the "generic" Autozone unit
was thicker, had transmission cooler fittings, and was too tall.  So the fan
shroud wouldn't go back on.  Had to put my old radiator back in and wait for
Monday.

Ended up with an exact replacement Modine from a radiator shop, and it was
cheaper than Autozone (about $150).

By the way, I also thought mine could be fixed as some people have
suggested.  I had a crack in one of the plastic end tanks.  But none of the
radiator shops I called around here would touch it.  They all said my only
choice was to replace it.

I have an "86 F150 and am always on the lookout for "goodies" for it. I
see a lot of adds for stuff for "87-"9? and was wondering what the
difference was on certain parts. I realize the body changed then (I
think) but I mean things like "shorty headers", mechanical stuff mostly.
How about front springs? are they the same?

It's simple geometry:
<{[(bore/2)^2]3.14}stroke># of cylinders
displacement is calculate using the above formula as follows:
divide bore by two to get radius of the cylinder, square the quotient, and
multiply by pi (3.14).  This gives you the area of a circle.  multiply that
by the stroke.  This gives you displacement PER CYLINDER , so multiply all of
that by the number of cylinders to get the total CID

A 302 is originally 4.00X3.00

stock bore:
4.000 / 2 = 2.000 ^2 = 4.000 X 3.14 = 12.56 X 3.00 = 37.68 X 8 = 301.44 CID
The 302 is actually about 301.5CID, but we lost a little by rounding to the
nearest.001 in the equation

bored .030 over:
4.030 / 2 = 2.015 ^2 = 4.060 X 3.14 = 12.748 X 3.00 = 38.244 X 8 = 305.95, or
306CID

someone asked about a .040 overbore:
4.040 / 2 =2.020 ^2 = 4.080 X 3.14 = 12.811 X3.00 = 38.433 X 8 = 307.46, or
307 CID

Of course, if the crank has been modified to increase stroke length you'd
need to factor that in as well.
Everybody understand this?  good.  There will be a test on it tomorrow.  :)

Subject: Re: Rattle Noise

When you replaced the clutch, did you also check/replace the pilot bearing?
My guess is, if there was a lot of play with the input bearing, maybe the
pilot bearing was also bad.
