These are a piece of pie to find, shd be readily availalable. Bearings from Timken, seals from wherever. Replacement gears also still available. I had a broken synchro in mine and had no problem getting new one.

Basically, mechanical parts are easy to find for these trucks. The only hard things are trim and decent body parts.

Stu, I can find some things thru carpenter or obsolete ford parts but I'm really looking for a radiator support for a 71 F250 4x4. These are awfully hard to come by. Do you know anywhere that has them?

Subject: disk brakes
To: FORDTRUCKS lofcom.com

Hi all

I have a 71 f250 with drum brakes (manual). It stops pretty good but with some considerable foot power.

I am considering buying a 71 f250 (camper special) in AZ as a donor body for my truck, as it is getting slouchy. Several candidate trucks have power brakes. I wonder if they came with disk brakes in those years?

Could anybody describe the process of changing over from manu. drums to power front disks? Specifically, I am after how the disk brake assembly is hung on the front drive axle. Can I unbolt the drum backing plate, and using the same hub and steering knuckle, bolt on a caliper hanger?

Also, what disks will fit? I'd think the 2wd disks are not interchangeable with the 4wd, or are they?

I will be buying a new master cyl (shame cause I already bought one recently, but I won't buy used brake cyls if I can help it) and a new proportioning valve, as I am told I need these.

Finally, what about power brakes? Is this a big deal? What types of booster can I use?

Thanks for your help.

I guess I never noticed it as it was hanging up but its a ordament that has a jet fighter which looks like it's from the 50's. It has a clear glass at the front which looks like a light is supposed to go in and it's rounded at the front. It jet is at the center and is quite large.

Yours is a 4x4 isn't it? Front disk brakes were not available, AFAIK, on 4x4 until after 1973. Actually 1973 brought disk brakes to 2WD but I think 4x4 didn't get them until 1975? Not sure about that part totally.

You will need the spindles for disk. Any F250 up thru 1979 should be able to interchange. You might try buying a front axle assembly with the same gearset as you have - this would be much simpler to install plus you get an assembly for parts or to sell. If you do not want to do this, you will need everything from the spindles out.

No, you will need 4x4 disks/hubs if yours is 4x4.

Check the part numbers on the MC. Many times the same MC served power and non-power applications. You will need a proportioning valve to accomodate front disks.

This you should be able to get at the Hi-Lo (or whatever your local fast-food auto parts store is called). I think in 1968 or 69 Ford went to a firewall mounted booster, probably a Borg-Warner. Prior to that it mounted on the fender. Just ask for a booster for your year truck. You will need a new pedal rod (goes from pedal to MC - different for pb). If they tell you the booster is not serviced (i.e. you must have yours rebuilt) then that is the fender-mounted jobbie and I don't know my years on that part. Go up in year until you find a firewall mounted booster. You may have to drill out the holes but I'm betting it'll fit. Firewalls on Ford trucks 1967-1979 are basically the same.

I don't think this was on any Ford truck from the factory. Ford truck hood badges (I call them badges because they didn't "stand up" like an ornament) were either a gear with a lightning bolt thru it or "V8". The only stand up type ornaments would have been pre-1940 but jets weren't invented then.
I think this is probably an aftermarket item. It doesn't have "FoMoCo" printed on it anywhere, does it? No telling what it's worth but I'd bet not too much (unless I am totally wrong and it is a genuine Ford piece).
Ford tools are readily available at swap meets and don't bring that much either. I suppose it depends on what they are and condition. I am really not too much help on that as far as value. Sorry.

John

Don It sounds like we have similar problems in life.....or else you you have figured it all out with the pre 4X4 craze F-100's. There are some parts which I am afraid will be difficult to locate for my 71 4x4 F100.

Anyway, the 435 tranys should be easy to find. They were used up until 88 or 89 in trucks 2 and 4 wheel drive. For a 71 there should be no problem finding most of the parts you will need for a resto. The tie rod bar might be one of those parts you can't get. 59-76 should all work for your application. The rod with the replaceable ends are a little on the smallish side but being able to replace just a end instead of the complete bar is a plus. If your front end is a closed knuckle you should be able for find the seals for it. The six inch knuckle was used on lots of front ends (Ford, chevy, Dodge, Jeep and so on) A berring shim kit will be a little harder to find.

I just wanted to find a good home for the Napco part.

What it's exact worth is I couldn't tell you, but almost all of the lighted hood ornament are very rare and hard to find. Most start in the low hundred and work their way up to the 10's of thousands (mostly from the 20 or 30's era). I would have been from a passenger car, trucks were just to utilitarian to be decorated with such a thing, but anything is possible. Do some more research and have that thing valued by an expert, it just might be worth it.

If you are converting a 4X4 you will need to replace the entire front end. When Ford went to disk they made the spindle larger arround where they bold up to the knuckle and went to a 5 bolt offset pattern.( the spindle will only bolt on one way. The older six bolt spindle could be turned arround to any possition). Well I take some of that back. If you have an open knuckle drum brake front end you can just change the knuckle out but if you have a closed knuckle front you will have to change the entire front end to open knuckle.

I have now found a case yet where 2wd disks will fit a 4wd. I just put a 78 model 3/4 front on my 63 with the twin piston calipers. The rotors for this thing run at $150 a piece new. You might want to look for a front end with single piston calipers the rotors are cheaper.

65 is the first year with a power booster on the fire all (2wd). I put a 77 boster on my 65 and everything bolted up fine all of the holes matched. I haven't seen a fender mount yet but I don't get out much either =)

To: FORDTRUCKS lofcom.com

I've seen at least one person indicate the year of their 292 Y-block, so how do I find that on the engine in my 56F-100? I've looked pretty good at the engine and haven't spotted any numbers cast into the engine. Are they stamped? (The grime could have easily filled in a stamping...) And where should they be located?

Furthermore, Dad says that the engine grandpa threw in the truck may have come out of a Ford station-wagon, but Dad was in Vietnam at the time so that may not be correct. The valve covers are cast with FORD on them and are orange or red, the engine block appears to have been yellow (but who knows if those colors are original). It also has a spin-on oil filter and I thought I saw someone mention that their 292 had a cartridge filter.

Thanks.

Erik O'Daniel

Marko,

I was at a boneyard today and saw a F150 2wd from that era with a pretty looking decent body. I'm going back there on Saturday. Let me know if its the same support mount and if yes, I'll check it out. Don't know what it would cost to ship it coast to coast, but if its that rare it may be worth it.

The first drum brakes on a trock were for a '72 F250 Camper Special.
Otherwise you need to look for the front end parts for a '73. The easiest way to retrofit them is to remove the entire assy. from both sides at the kingpin. This would also be a good time to replace your kingpins and bushings.

Don't get hung on the engine. You can always find another engine. If the body is sound, you've got yourself a truck! Check the front cab corners from the inside, behind the interior covering. Worst spot! Is it complete inside? You may opt, as I have, for a later engine ('51) to take advantage of the top mounted distributor. I'm restoring a '47 Panel Delivery truck and I plan to do the same engine transplant. I still have to option of the original motor too...

Took my chances with an '88 Bronco (Eddie Bauer) and I'm glad. It never would have paid off.
