Very good advice. What's the old saying, Batteries go dead in the winter,
but die in the summer? Next to the heat, corrosion is your worst enemy.
I've seen a new, fully charged battery just give an 'UMPH' because of
dirty/corroded terminals.

One thing. I would NOT buy my voltage regulator at Wal Mart. They will
typically sell you a wells, or worse. Why use crappy parts in your
charging system? Bite the bullet and go to a NAPA store and get a good VR.
It is worth the money. Yes, NAPA parts will cost more than the same (?)
parts at Auto Zone or Pep Boys, but that's only because they are worth
more. NAPA should have an electornic equivilant for the older point and
solenoid type.

I have no affialation with NAPA, blah, blah, blah... but it took me a while
to realize that cheap parts are no bargin.

Nope, but feel free to place an add on our web site.
The Ford Truck Enthusiasts web site gets 100-200
visitors a day so it will get some exposure. Oh,
were in the Southeast? I'm in Atlanta.

Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

When I switched my 67 F100 over to front disc brakes I put in
the proportion combination valve from the 76 donor truck that
the brake spindles came from. I just got (for free) an adjustable
proportioning valve. Can it be used **instead** of the Ford part or
must it be used in **addition** to it? Its just a standard Summit
adjustable with two brake outlets and a turn knob.

Fred,

Were you talking about FWD Front Wheel bearings or RWD Front bearings?

FWD car have an axle nut, the bearings are pressed in...

for the FWD, Front Axle, If the you have a REGULAR nut, I don't know
what the exect torque is, I will have to look up my ALLData, but usually,
I use my Air Impact at full power all the way down. In short, 100+ lb-ft
Some cars have a crown nut after the regular nut, so, that one is hand
tight.

for RWD car's front bearing, The book say 15-20lb-ft and back out 1/8
turn. and pin it. I usually put 15-20lb-ft and back it out 1/4 and finger
tighten it, and pin it.

Let me know what kind of car you are working on, and I can give you more
information.

Does anyone know of any people or businesses that deal with the scale model

sixties. I would like to find a model of my 66 F100 if possible.

I found a diecast metal version of a 1966 F100 styleside short box at a swap
meet I was at in May. It was put out by Ertl as a promotion for WIX Filters
and comes as a set with a trailer and 69 Boss 302 Mustang to tow. If you're
interested you might want to try your local hobby store or swap meet.

My understanding is that the adjustable P-valves are to replace the factory
unit.

The web site has temporarily moved back to its old location
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.mindspring.com/~fordtrucks) until Dragonfire
Internet Services can get their performance problems resolved.

Additionally, I've done a major rework of the web pages.
They should look alot more professional now and navigation
should be extremely easy. The same information is provided
but in an easier to use format. Let me know what you guys/gals
think (kpayne mindspring.com). I think you'll like it.

Lastly, a couple people have sent me logos. If you would like
to submit a logo, I'm working on a method to rotate logos on
the main page until we can vote of which to use.
