Jerry or anybody else;

Tell me more about stroking the 351M by using the 400 crank. After reading this I looked at my Chiltons and all specs appear to be the same. Is it that easy? Are there any other issues that I'll need to address (other than the Crank, Rods and Pistons)?

I'd appreciate any help that's out there.

Hello,I just purchased a 1996 F-150 XLT extended cab 4X2 with 351 V8 and 4 speed automatic.Anyone have HP/Torque specs? Would appreciate comments on reliability of this drive
train. I also have an 87 4X2 longbed Ranger with 2.9V6 and 5 speed with over 275k which has proven very reliable and still works every day.

Mac,

Send me a list of what you're looking for....I have a lot of parts at the house and there are plenty of trucks in that range of years in boneyards in the RI/Souhern Mass area.

Hi Fordtruckers,
Got Zack's message about the dome lamp wiring for his alarm.
The wire color is black with a light blue tracer, and the best location to connect into it is at the front kick panel...easiest side to get to. Remove the kick panel, which is just in front of the door at the floor. You should be able to see the wires at the rear of the courtesy light switch mounted through the door jamb.
Good Luck

Thought I'd jump in, I'm looking for a Clark 4 speed manual trans. (3 speed + overdrive). I hear it was on the '79 Ford trucks. Have you ever come across this? I'm looking for a 3 speed+overdrive or a 4 speed+overdrive that will bolt up to a 302 with no modifications and little or no modifications to the driveshaft.

Thanks,

Mike

I really need help finding original rear van seats, or even remakes, for Ford vans made between 1961 to 1967. I also was wondering if it is possible to make a 1965 ford van four-wheel-drive? If so how, what axel, and transfercase? I have a inline 6, 170 ci, 3 speed transmission.

Hook your vacuum advance hose to a full manifold vacuum port and see if the rpm changes,it should if it's not leaking,you could also put a piece of clean vacuum hose on the advance and suck on it to see if it leaks.

Caution!
the use of hockey pucks is illegal in some states because the are DANGEROUS! Use the standard cab mounts, or your cab may shear off one day.

Just reading your conversation today, I too am new to the email list, and I am really impressed with the FE motors. I have a 360 which I will be rebuilding this summer. It is an original 1971 motor that is still strong. I know when I rebuild it it will be leak free....and strong. My 360 is in a 4x4 mated to a new process 435 4 speed. Gobbs of torque! Keep us posted....some of us are die hard FE fanatics.

Subject: drum to disk???
To: FORDTRUCKS lofcom.com

I am new to the list so forgive me if I am asking a question that has been covered recently. I have a 2WD 1969 F100 (390 V8) which I am planning on using to tow a 3000 lb trailer. Even though my drum brakes are in good shape, I am a little worried about braking ability and am wondering if I can replace the front drums with disk brakes. Can anyone help with this question? I am planning on doing the work myself so some indication of the degree of difficulty would also be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You can use discs from a F100/F150 up to 1979. Be sure you get the portioning valve and master cylinder from the donor vehicle. Its all bolt on but you may need to pay someone to remove the king pins.

Basically, you take off the tire, drum, disconnect the brake from the lines. Take off the bolt which holds the king pin in place.
Then take off the grease fittings above and below the king pins.
Drive out the king pin, be care not to damage the ends (although you should have a set from the donor truck). Once again, you may need to pay someone to hydraulically remove them as they can stick after a bunch of years. Installation of disc spindles is just the opposite. Replace the portioning and master cylinder with the donars, bleed the system - have fun. A Chiltons or other manual goes into more detail. Its not mechanically challanging but the king pin can require alot of muscle.

If you need more details, let us know. My 67 F100 is riding around with 1976 disc brakes.

Don't jump too far without me. I am looking for a Clark 5 speed. They were used with some larger trucks (2 ton I think) I have heard it had a low first 7:1 and an overdrive 5th. Anyone have any history on these?
