I saw in a previous post that a co. called obsolete ford parts may have or make new wiring harnesses for 77 ford trucks does anyone have an E-Mail address or a phone number for this Co.?
Does anyone know of other places that I can get a wiring harness?
I have been having major electrical trouble and I would love to just get a new harness.
Thanks in advance

Well, now, here is a quandry. My '64 has locks on both sides but my '61 has one on the DRIVER'S side only. In addition, I remember my dad's '64 had a lock also on the driver's side only. I just paged thru a bunch of old pictures of Ford trucks from '46-up and I see some with and without on BOTH sides. This is somewhat of a mystery to me. I have assumed from my personal experience of 3 trucks from the '60s that the driver's side was standard and the passenger side was optional. Apparantly it is not this simple. There's a lot of these trucks on this list - what does everybody else have on their trucks as far as door lock cylinders?

Your book must include the heavies because the 361 and 332 were for F-500 up only.

Jerry & Lisa:
I have always followed the advice my crusty old high school auto shop teacher told me:

To help seat the rings, keep it in first gear (low one if auto), bring it up to about 15 MPH, and take your foot off the gas and let the engine slow the truck down to idle speed. Do this about ten or fifteen times (the midnight Wal-Mart parking lot break-in technique!!). Then, do the same in second gear to about 25 MPH, let it come back down, then third gear to about...you get the point. The engine back pressure helps seat the rings. I have always changed out the break in oil at about 250 miles and then again at 500 miles (people tell me this is overkill, but I'm good that way). Keep it under 50 MPH for the first 500 miles.

The thing to remember is that when brand new a motor is as fragile as it is ever going to get in it's life. What you do in the first 1000 miles or so will shorten/lengthen it's life down the road. With proper attention to break in you will be slamming around town in this thing well into the 21st. century!!!

Good luck,

Ground F/X, Bed Rails, find a place that sells camper tops for trucks, they should have these in stock and many to choose from. {if you are in Houston, do NOT go to Leer. (i was unhappy with them)}

Tonight we reached a major milestone. First, some history:

This list started in late December/early January as a bunch of us who sent email to each other using standard email and a little use of the "cc" email field. All of us (about 12 or so) met via the usenet newsgroups. One day I gathered my names, sent all of them email and asked about a Ford truck list. No one knew of one so I started one, I believed that if we could get 100 hundred members we would be huge. After 3 weeks of operation it became obvious (we had 25 members and real buggy software) that we would need a list server to host us. I found LOF Communications, a lost cost high service company to host us - show them your appreciation and visit their site (www.lofcom.com). This is the only company I have no problems with endorsing in such a way on the list. Without their help none of this would be possible. (Thanks Charlie)

We went on line with LOF in early February. Two weeks later it became obvious that we would need a digest version of the list as the traffic was high and steady. Three weeks after moving to LOF, we had 100 users - this was due in part to Charlie (with LOF) sending me an email which listed sites and ways to promote the list/web site.

Now, our milestone..... 500 users!!!!! Thanks everyone for being a part of this! At this rate of growth we may be forced sooner or later to split the list into pre-1980 and post 1980 trucks - alot of users are having problems with the volume of email sent some days. Once again, this would be up to the group as a whole.

Its been fun (most of the time!),

Glen: I tried to get a number from information for Obsolete Ford Parts but there wasn't one. The ad calls out a catalog for 73-79 trucks for $4.00. Also found a guy advertising wiring in Hemmings. He has an email address chuck4850 aol.com. Try him also.

Message-ID:

According to Jack Clifford and Clifford Research (P.O. Box 2620, Corona, CA 91720, (909)734-3310) the inline Ford 6 has the sam torque potential as a Ford 460!
This has to do with fact that on the 6, the bore and stroke are about the same as the 460 V8, also the power stroke is 120 degrees vs. on 60 degrees for the V8.
For more facts and some good parts, call Clifford. My friend had them build a 2.8 Liter Chevy (sorrry) that puts out around 300 hp. Not too shabby.

That's great. I realize that we get a lot of messages on this group, but I enjoy reading all of them.

I'm glad to see this list moving up the ladder as it were.

I have to admit that I'm spoiled though since I have a T1 connection at work and it takes very little time to retrieve my e-mail.

I hope you mean 1978 Bronco - neither of these engines will fit the engine compartment of a little Bronco.

If it is a 1978, the 460 is the way to go. 351M is pretty much a slug.
400 is decent but no match for the 460. The 460 will get the same MPG but with much more power throughout the rev range.

To everyone:

This is the third message of this type with nearly the same wording to be sent to the list by three different people. This will not get anyone unsubscribed. It only proves to 500+ other list members that you do not take the time to read directions!

Please take the time to read the directions. The web site asked you to read (and provided links to) the FAQ and charter BEFORE you subscribed to the list. The FAQ and charter both give instructions telling you how to unsubscribe. In addition, the FAQ and charter are emailed to all users upon joining. Lastly, the introduction email you recieved upon joining contained unsubscribe instructions. Posting unsubscribe messages to the group only succeeds in sending a copy of it to all 500+ of our members.

climbing up on flaming soapbox...

Please note that I no longer unsubscribe anyone. You must use the instructions you received! Between the list messages, ad placements and personal email concerning the list I recieve over 200 emails a day. I do not have time to deal with this. When all else fails, RTFM! Some people really prove there is a need for the book "Internet for Dummies".

climbing back down....

P.S. These users better be glad its not a Linux list, this stuff would get
them email bombed on a Linux list.

Side hung floats are recommended by Pedersen's 4x4 (or is it 4-wheelin?) magazine over center hung, at least for the Holley. The reason is, they are supposed to work better in off-level conditions, like four bying. They also recommend you get the little sprung needle valve rather than the stock one if you are going to do any of this kind of driving.

Mine works great by the way.

Saying the 351M is a slug is like saying all Harley's leak oil.....
Of course, the 460 is going to give better power for the Cubic Inch freaks out there. If it is in your budget.... go for it! If not, a 400 or 351M may be cheaper to aquire and about the same to rebuild.
The question I have is.... "are you going to need the x-tra that the 460 gives, if not, go with what is cheaper to get into." That is, of course, unless testostrone has anything to do with it.....! Then the 460 wins!
I am in the same boat, deciding to sell-off my 400 for a 460. I have a spare 400 from another 78 Bronco (for parts or rebuild). Life is full of all sorts of heated questions...
