I'm sure there are long, complicated ways to handle rust. My own
experience is that if you ever decide to use a rust converter (not remover
- converter) the ONE that really works the best is liquid Extend. I've
rescued many metal objects using Extend as the base coat (followed by
primer and paint) and Extend works better than anything. It can be sanded
wet or dry with silicon carbide. I haven't tried to put a show coat of
paint on after it though, you'll have to ask someone with more experience
in that area if that's where the redo is going.

Drew
On the right side of the clyinder block near the front is a casting #.
What is it? Also there is a date code on the block. Look between the
sparkplugs in the center of the head for a casting#. I can narrow the size
down with these #s. On the front of the manifold left front under the coil
there may or may not be a metal tag. This is the engine ID tag. It will
tell you the yr size and carb model. Good luck.

We purchased a 1977 F-150 Ranger about 2 mos ago and have wondered about
some of the other components on the truck. We know the engine is a 351M
and the tranny is a C6. Does anyone know how to identify the transfer
case and axles(ie Dana 44 etc.). Also, how was the truck originally
equipped?

There's a number on the right side heads between the spark plugs. This
can be decoded. Problem is that they may not be original heads - probably
are as they last forever. Also, there may be an id tag under the coil.
Since the block itself doesn't have casting number its easy to fool
people but I doubt anyone is going to replace the heads to do this - unless
of course it was to fool a concourse judge.

Not that I know of - at least not in 67.

I just want to clarify one thing - I feel very strong about not *requiring*
payment for the list. Voluntary payment would be up to the membership.
There are alot of broke college students (and others) who really could save
time and money by the advice they receive here - but some of them may not
be able to afford to pay. How much of our membership would we lose? I'm
willing to bet over half.

Alot of people hang around for a month, ask a few questions, answer a few
questions, lose interest and leave. But these people do contribute greatly
to the content of the postings. I doubt they would have hung around at all
if payment was required. Nick Finney comes to mind (unless he's rejoined -
hard to tell with 475+ members), I haven't seen him around but he gave
some incredibly good advice last month - had me going back to double check
what I've learned on occasion.

Also, how many times have you found a cool web page or other item on the
internet and then you saw a price tag - were you disappointed?

Just some thoughts.....

Try contacting some of the suppliers on the web page. Obsolete Ford and
Caralonia Classics are very good. They can probably get you new corrugated
steel to get welded/rivited in place of (or on top of) the old.

Hi Ken:

I'll check it out. I'm no expert with cars should I check the
rear wheel bearings as well as the front? Ignorant question I
know.

In '67 it's probably a 360 or 390.

You need:
A breaker bar and socket to turn the motor with.
A piece of brazing rod about a foot long.
Calipers or a tape measure.
A felt pen
A friend to operate the breaker bar.

Remove a spark plug that's easy to get at. Gently stick Your piece of brass
rod down the hole until one end rests on top of the piston.
Have Your friend roll over the motor (while You hold the rod straight) until
the piston pushes the rod to the very top of it's travel (TDC).
Mark the rod with the pen against some fixed referance point. The edge of
the valve cover works nice.
Now roll the motor to BDC while You hold the rod against the piston.
Mark the rod against the valve cover again.
Pull the rod out and measure the distance between the 2 marks.
Congratulations, You've just measured approx crank stroke.
3.50" is a 360 or 352
3.78" is a 390

352= 4.000"B x 3.500"S
360= 4.050" x 3.500"
390= 4.050" x 3.780"

It's impossible to tell any other way...
They all look the same and blocks all say "352"

I bought a 360 for my F100, but it turned out to be a 390... Don't You just
hate that? (-:

The tires are P235/15's. I don't know off the top of my head what the
gear ratio is, but I can check into it.

Also I forgot to mention that the engine is real whimpy.

Before you check them... has the milage always been this low? If
so then its not the bearings. If its gotten worse over the years
it may be. Start on a rear wheel, test it and then test a front
wheel - this way you won't have to test all four. Take off the wheel,
unbolt the brake hardware (4 bolts, very obvious how its done when
the wheel is off). On the rear, the axle will slide out with virtually
no resistance. Slide it out just enough to see the bear (round steel
sleeve around the axle. The bearing should turn very smoothly and
have no play. Slide the axle back in - you may need to turn it left
and right for the teeth to catch. Don't worry - this isn't something
you can mess up - it will go back in. On the front, you'll need to
take the center cap off the spindle - don't forget to take off the
brake hardware here - again this is a fairly straightforward
procedure. Under the cap is a nut, take it off. You should be able
to pull everything off the spindle and see the bearing on the spindle.
Again, the bearing should turn smoothly and have no side to side play.

No vehicle should take this long to get. It sounds like you're getting
the run-around. I read in a car buying guide about how dealers really
don't give a sh*t if you have your vehicle once you've signed on the
dotted line. However, you have not taken pocession of the van. In
most states the contract is not binding until you actually taken pocession
of the vehicle. This is why you can sign a contract and then tell
them "never mind" if you have not yet driven the car off the lot. Tell
them you've called a lawyer. Someone here posted an email address to
Ford Customer Assistance. I'll try to find it and post it with 24 hours.
Call them too, complain LOUDLY and often but don't get rude. It'll be
even better if you financed through FoMoCo because they don't want you
skipping out on the loan. Also, there's a good chance the dealer isn't
getting in more vehicles from that plant until May and they want to make
a little extra by not having your van shipped seperately. I'm not talking
from any solid legal or inside information - just my experience and the
hints I've learned in the past.

Good luck, and I'm sorry to here about this dealer. If only the dealers
were as good as the vehicles.

I put a set of BFG Defenders on my Ranger a week ago. Good tires, and
they dress up the truck as well.

Message-Id:

Okay, I have a '91 F-150 that seems to misfire when I am driving it at any
speed. My question is has anyone ever had this happen to them, if so how did
you fix it? Here is some other info, the truck has 170,000 miles on it, and I
have just replace the shortblock in it. (300 I-6) Along with a few other
parts.
If anyone has any help whatsoever PLEASE tell me! :) As you can see I am
somewhat frustrated by this nonsence.

Thanx.
