alright boys here is some parts that i no longer need and thought someone out
there might be able to use.

-2-upper and lower 5.0 truck intakes- 60$ each
-set of E7 heads off a 5.0-90$ takes them

-306 engine block(have pistons and rods but not assembled, the pistons are
9.5 to 1 compression trw)-300$ for block 300$ for pistons or 550$ for block,
pistons, rods
-set of 289 heads with 1.60 1.90 values-375$

i paid 1400 for the 306 motor.

i also have a dark blue 94 f150 with 121,000 miles with a 351 brand new
everything hi perf motor, 3700 invested in motor.  i cant figure out the
problem with the truck cant keep it running and do not have the money to
figure it out will sell for 7000$ i think this is fair.  to my knowledge all
it needs is some custom computer work, for the computer is set to run a 302
not a 351.  here is the deal on parts of the motor and truck

-world senior heads brand new with 1.60 2.02 values

Is there a foolproof way to tell if I have to replace my power window lifts?
Both of mine have stopped working in my 88 F-150 XLT.
I have seen gear replacement kits for sale.  Do the gears go bad on these
motors? Both sides run, they will lower the window, just not raise it back
up.  You can hear the motor running, but nothing happens.
Any help would be appreciated.

So what did the dana 60 5 lug front come in stock?  I didn't know they made
those.  Yea those wheels are probably good and with the money in that rear
axle I wouldn't get rid of it either....lucky you didn't buy it the first
time.  Anyway do you have to modify the frame up front to accept leaf
springs if that is what you are doing?  I assume the lift is staying at
about 6 inches on the suspension?

Later,
Jared
BTW.....my wife actually thinks that scouts and early broncos are cool...and
wouldn't mind having either some day.  Your scout probably isn't stock
either I am assuming.

Heya Jared

Nah I ahve to keep the Dana 60 5 lug floater rear... it matches my 5 lug
front Dana 60 ;-)
Ta think the length one will go to run those nice beadlok wheels

Well the c clip looking thing wasn't a problem it came right out and you
right the holes are slots.  After two homemade tools failed the third one
worked like a charm, here is a picture of it.

If you can get the c-clip thing unbent, you might be able to take a long
punch and stick it in one of the holes and hit the side of the punch with a
hammer while holding one end in the nut and the other end in your hand or on
a jack stand or something.  If the torque isn't too high on this lock nut,
it might come free.

Are the "holes" actual holes, or slots?  On the Dana 50 that I have, the nut
is round but has 6 radial slots that my hub socket tool's pins engage.  If
you have slots, the precision of the diameter of the "hole" circle is not
critical.

If you can get the grease off of the nut to get a good look at it, you might
want to look through all your parts guy's special tools.  For me, their book
said one thing but the tool that was specified couldn't have worked.
Knowing what I was looking for, I was able to get the right one, which was
pretty different.

Another option would be to fabricate a tool.  If you could find a piece of
scrap pipe that was thick enough and the right diameter, you can drill some
holes in the end of the pipe in the right pattern/spacing and secure some
pins in the holes and use the tool to remove the wrench.  You could use
loctite if you don't have a torch.  For pins, you could use those gun nails
that are ultra-hard and grind the head and points off.  You'll likely want
to use hardened steel for the pins.

A third option that comes to mind is to get two long punches that will fit
into the holes.  Then take some scrap steel and some vice grips and clamp
the punches to the steel to make a squared off U with the tips of the
punches in the holes.  Then put a lever between the arms of the U and twist.
Just an idea.

Hope that helps.

Heya Jared.

The front Dana 60 is a custom done unit, started life as a 1988 F-350
axle. I then swapped the steering knuckles for sum 1979 vintage Chevy
steeering knuckles and spindles, then utilizing a set of custom wheel
hubs and rotors from dyna trac....and sum custom caliper brakets, we now
have a 5 lug Dana 60...also while we were at it I upgraded to the
1.5inch 35 spline outer axle shafts as well. All this to run a set of
Champion beadlocks LOL

And I will be using front coils for the swap...and a 5 link.

As for the Scout... it is a 1976 Terra with a 1970 455 W-30
olds/TH400/Dana20 combo.
Runs a Meyers 8ft hydoturn,32in rubber and more rust that you can
possibly imagine! But is a blast to drive. plows snow like a truck
possed, and will mess with the 5.0 stang guys at a street light quite
handily!

Pretty slick.  I've seen tools like the one you used somewhere before... :-)

I can see why you had such trouble with home made tools.  Weird that the
slots are on the _inside_, right through the threads.  Kind of like a
self-tapping nut.  I'd really hate to cross those threads.

Subject: Underdrive Good?
Date: Thu, 4 Jan 2001 11:20:26 -0500


Do any of you have experience using an aftermarket underdrive unit,
particularly with an electronic transmission?  I'd love to improve the
fun/towing capabilities of my truck [OK, mostly fun :-)] and an underdrive
seems like a very practical way to do it, although I wish they were cheaper.
The one I'm most interested in (from US Gear) would effectively give me a
4.44 rear end when I want it, but I get to keep my current 3.55s for highway
use.  I figure this would not only be a lot more fun to drive around town,
but would give me some much needed fill in gears for when I tow,
particularly that long gap between second and third.  All while keeping my
truck otherwise pretty stock and presumably not affecting my gas mileage
much.

Anybody ever done this that can give me the benefit of their experience?
I'm particularly interested in how the E4OD will react to the changed ratios
and whether it will do anything (like changing shift points) that might
limit the value of the underdrive unit.

It was made almost like a thread die, I have never seen one like it.  From
looking at the instructions with the new hubs I think it was a Warn
