Yes Karl, I miswrote that one, what you did was correct.

Also to answer another question on the charge light, the charge light is wired between the ignition switch on position (just like you have it), and the regulator. I believe it connects to the terminal marked "I". No it will not stay on all the time because as soon as the alternator starts putting out enough power the regulator end of the charge light is connected to 12 volts, and since both ends of the bulb are connected to 12 volts no current will flow through the light.

I read a message not to long ago that indicated you could use front disk spindles from a 72 Ford pickup to replace the spindles and brakes on a 67 or 68 Ford Pickup. Does this work for a 66 Ford Pickup as well?????

My dad ordered this Truck in from the Ford Dealer in my home town in Nebraska.
My Truck spent it's entire life, up to the summer of 1990, when Dad gave the Truck to me, in Nebraska. My Truck is hardly rust free coming from the rust belt, how could a North Dakota Truck be rust free, unless it was never driven in the winter time ?????

Anyway, could you e-mail a little more information to me, such as engine size, transmission make, body parts available. Does the truck still run ??
Would you consider selling me the whole truck?? If you would sell the whole truck, could you send some pictures via snail mail???

I have a 66 F100 if you need any parts for your restoration!!
I have everything in real good shape. It's been a North Dakota truck all it's life and everything is rust free!!

The 351M is a piece of junk.

Subject: 351M vs. 351W

I own a 83 F250 4X4 for daily driving (351W with the 4 speed manual), work and occasional plowing. I recently purchased a donor truck (84 with a 351M and C6 automatic).
Both being high milage, I have to rebuild one of these drive trains.=20 The question is, which drive train would better serve me? I'm leaning toward the 351M with the C6. I'd like some opinions?
Thanks and the information would be greatly appreciated.

Agreed, the C6 however is a wonderful tranny. Since it has the bell housing built in does the 351M C6 have the same bold pattern as the 351W? If so, I'd hang on to the C6 and put it on the 351W.

I have a Powerstroke 1996 250 with 12k miles.
Regular oil and filter changes each 3k miles.

For the last two months, whenever I make a sharp right handed turn (i.e. highway entrance ramp / loop) the Water in Fuel Light comes on. I have already drained the water lever under the hood twice, with no real change in this. I never noticed this before. Any ideas / suggestions?

The K&N Filter costs about $45.00. The new filtercharger performance injection kit hasn't been developed yet for newer Rangers, but K&N is promising one soon. The wires and plugs will run around $150.00 depending on brand you get and how good they are. The exhaust system is around $180.00 and you need a custom exhaust place to install it for you. I t should work on your Bronco since they are the same setup as a Ranger. Good Luck.

Hello Everyone,

I have been told that generators do not charge well at low RPMs, is this true?!?!?! What are other disadvantages of a generator based charging system?

I have a '63 F100 Stepside with a 292 Y-block, the truck is completely stock. I am planning to add an aftermarket sound system (head unit, Eq., and Amp), does anyone know it a generator based charging system could handle the demand or should I consider converting the system to an alternator based system?

Thanks,

Yes, if its a king-pin 2 wheel drive (should be). Should be able to put up to a 1979 on it.

I'm pretty sure that the bellhousing is the same for the Modified engines and the Big Blocks, and the 351w is the same as the Cleveland engines, so the bell housings aren't interchangeable.

You will need to change over to a alternator. It is really a pretty simple job, but I would recommend that you take it to a mechanic that likes electrical work. There are a couple of brackets that you will have to change, and you will have to decide what kind of alternator that you want. A GM single-wire alternator is simple to wire up, and if you know somebody with a '65-'72 you can see how a stock Ford set up is wired.

There are many more things you can do to a 351W than you can to a
351M. As
far as I know the last time I went to find different pistons for a
351M/400
you could only get stock C/R pistons. With a 351W you can do pistons
of all
types, you can do many different things for heads. List is endless.

If so,
I'd hang on to the C6 and put it on the 351W

The 351M/400 has the same bellhousing as the 429/460, the 351C has a 302/351W bellhousing.
Can anyone tell me if the 300 Six has a comon bellhousing with any V8?

Hello All,
I'm am searching for a source for the clips (and body trim!) to attach body trim for a 59 Ranchero. I am debating whether to shave and fill the trim a la steet rod, or go a more "correct" route. All suggestions welcome.

I am in the process of addressing this problem right now. My sons gen was working allright but I noticed that at lower rpm ranges ie. sitting at lights etc. the gen puts out according to engine speed. If you are going to run any amps etc. I would strongly suggest you change it over to an alternator, which supplys a constant 14.25 to 14.50 volts. If you need help hooking it up give us a holler, we just did it

See Ya,

so I could bolt the three speed trans to a 302 and everything would work? I'm not sure about the
transmission input shaft and the pilot bushing on the 302 or 35W

As I remeber you can bolt the transmission in with no problem. But be sure to check the pilot bushing for wear. depending on the year 302 you might have to fab a clutch arm ball bracket.
