Subject: Seat belt problem
Message-Id:

I own a 77 Ranchero with bucket seats from a similar T-bird,
and the seat belts need to be replaced.

Now, here is the problem: my wife has short legs and
requires the drivers seat all the way forward, which fully
extends the shoulder harness. There is no free play in it,
she can't even bend forward to release the brake.

Is there an after-market belt that is over sized that I can
replace the old ones with? Can I use belts from a pickup?
What year?

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Message-Id:

Here is the very simple, inexpensive, idiot-proof way to convert from 6v to
12v. Remember, you must have very good wiring in any restoration. Many
good repros have burned up because the owner tried to save the $300 or so $
and not rewire. You can't have a $300 fire. Remembering that you have 1/2
as many AMPS in 12v as you have in 6v, you have lighter wires in your repro
wire kits. You will need a 12v battery, If using an alternator, you will
need a DA plug for your single wire alternator (GM) , which Patrick's has
for $19.95. No regulator needed if using single wire alt., needed if
using generator. 12v coil, replace all dash and lighting bulbs with 12v
equivilent, An ignition Ballast resistor NAPA # ICR-13 which is installed
in ign wire to coil,A voltage reducer for each accessory( radio,
fan,etc...On heater, install it in hot line BEFORE the switch. Use Napa
part VT6187.. Lastly, use Standard ignition VRC604 for the gas guage. I
will be glad to mail copies of this to anyone who is confused, or when
ordering DA plug from Patricks, (520) 836 1117) ask him for a catalog. The
previous info was copied from the back page of the catalog. Thanks, Lee

Hi all,

Well I am now the proud owner of a 1974 F250 Ranger XLT, Camper Special. I was
lucky enough to find a rust free, AZ truck, truck that was a one owner. The
original owner kept great maintenance records, and even had a set of Factory
Repair Manuals. The Body is almost perfect, tailgate in great shape. The paint
in the bed is hardly worn, and there are no dents inside the bed.

Anyway, now for one of the many questions to come. When the truck is sitting
on a level surface, the back bumper is around 8 to 10 inches higher off the
ground than the front bumper is. Is this the way the trucks were made? Does it
have anything to do with the fact that the truck is rated at 8100 pounds GVW?

TTFN, TA TA for now!

I looked it up: JC Whitney has regulators that will feed 6V to your gauges
from a 12V source. You have to get one for each gauge and they are $17.
That seems very expensive to me, but typical for JC Whitney. Note, though,
that only certain gauges will need this regulator. Ammeters and Tachs should
be unaffected, as well as speedometer.

I have a 55 panel truck with a 351W & C6 installed. I used the bolt in
motor mounts (later welded) and the auto trans cross member from Dennis
Carpenter.

I have a chance to get a 5.0 + overdrive automatic from a 90 Mustang for
$800, and would like info:

Is the price right? I heard it's a good deal. The engine/trans has
40K, and was removed so the owner could install a faster one. It is all
there except the alternator.

What different motor and trans mounts will I need? Will the existing
351W mounts and trans mount work? The trans mount is for a c4&c6,
according to the catalogue.

Thanks in advance, Paul Gayda

I have a 77 1/2 F-250 and the tanks are both underneath between the
frame rails. I thought Ford moved the tanks when they changed the
styling, 75?.

Marvel Mystery Oil to clean with. Ever notice how clean the inside of

Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

hello all,
After reading all the replies about 12v / 6v gauges I was wondering about
the oil pressure gauge that I put into my 71 F350. I changed the
instrument panel to one with full gauges and in the process replaced the
oil sending unit to one for a gauge. The one I got was a GP Sorensen
OPS71 switch. It says P6V on the box and I was wondering if this means
that it is for a 6 volt system instead of a 12 volt system. Or do the
gauges work on 6 volts ? The reason I ask is because it registers very
low all the time and I am hoping that it is the sending unit as opposed to
the oil pump, etc. Thanks for any help

Its not a cure-all and you don't dump it in. I've used it sparingly
(an ounce to a 19 gallon tank) to clean gunk. I wouldn't recommend
it all the time as ATF is slightly acidic and I've heard it can eat
seals. I mainly use in the motorcycle engine as the bike is tolerant
of just about any solvent. The F100 sees Marvel Mystery Oil about
once every 4-5 tanks to keep the fuel system clean. Its not snake
oil and they don't claim miracles like some of the "treatments."
(Oh Lord, I hope I didn't open the can of worms again).

The comment about trannies is correct, auto transmissions are
usually spotless on the inside - a little "gunk" sometimes collects
on the pan after many miles if its not flushed out and refilled
every now and then.

JC Whitney sells them, standard and long size, universal
application. They're kinda steep though. Not sure if
the truck belts will fit. They should, as many of the
car belts will fit in the trucks. Some GM belts (gag)
are supposed to be really nice.

Hi Steve,
The wife's Grandpa's 67 F250 DOESN'T have a tank behind the
seat, but it does have a big rubber plug where the fill neck
is supposed to be. It's a Camper Special, FE390, and over
200 thousand miles, and it's never been apart. But it needs
exaust manifold gaskets.....

What I do is add a quart of ATF, warm the truck up, and
then change the oil and filter. ATF is a very good solvent,
it will break down sludge and keep it in suspension so it
can be drained during the oil changing process.

Jim,
THANK YOU for the advice. I got the motor out and after disassembly
found the grease inside to be impregnated with bits of disintegrated
plastic from three lobes of plastic that act as shock absorbers
between the internal gear and its housing. The Ford dealer here says
they get a request for a rebuild kit ( $61 a shot) at the rate of
one a day (population 60K). It's probably a design flaw.
Thanks again for the tip,

Depends on what you are doing. If your engine is not going above 6500
RPM and you are using a fairly stock cam then cast rings are fine.

See if the door post sticker is still on the truck. It has the production
date. It may be covered with paint. Check the SN number on the cab, it can
be decoded to give the production date. There is also a SN number on the
frame, it should match the cab. Many cast components have date codes, check
the ones on the transmission engine and rear ends.
