I have a 71 F100 sport custom (auto), and to get my reverse lights to work
I have to have the shifter in the right area, sometimes the lights will
work but the truck will not be in gear. So I would look there first.

Subject: 97 F350 pulls
Message-ID:

With respect to the message I posted yesterday about the 97 F350 pulling: I
believe I have located the source of the "clunk" I'm getting. It's hard to
identify it because the truck is a diesel and as soon as I get under there I'm
deafened to where I can't hear anything. When the brake is applied and the
wheel is turned a little either way, the clunk appears to come from the two
leaves of one of the front springs sliding left to right (as opposed to front to
rear) across each other. It doesn't appear to be a lot of movement, but it does
come up through the steering column and can be heard. I am going to check it
out further, but does anyone think this is indicative of a problem? Could it be
related to my pulling trouble? By the way, it's the passenger side spring, the
side the truck is pulling to.

Thanks,
Todd

I have just a standard borg warner with either 2.75 or 3:1.
What do you mean tyre roll out, I have 14inch by 7inch rims.
with 245/65 rear and 235/60 front.

Subject: Two 9" Rear Questions
Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Hello all

I have the 9" rear out of a 72 Torino and I'm thinking about putting it
under my 1950 F1. It's a little longer than the stock rear, but I ought to
be able to make up for that with wheel offset. Of course there's always
the chance that I can't make up for it with offset, which brings me to my
first question: Can I shave a couple of inches off the overall length by
using different drums/brakes? If so, which ones might work? The drums
I've got are pretty massive.

My second question pertains to the gear ratio. Unless I counted wrong, the
rear end I've got is 3.0:1. Is that too high for a truck? Keep in mind
that this truck will never tow or carry heavy loads, and doesn't have to
have neck breaking acceleration--but it should still be peppy. This rear
will be mated to a stock 351C/C4. It would be easy enough to go get
another 3rd member from a junk yard, but I'd rather save the money if
possible. As usual, any advice, comments, suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks.

I have just bought a 76 F250 pickup with 360/C6; realizing that this is
probably the worst combo of large engine vs. efficiency from that era,
is there anything I can do cheaply, and easy, in my driveway, to improve
the mileage/performance/either? I know this is never going to be a hot
combination, but, with the knowledge of all you guys, I just thought I'd
ask. My guess is to pull the engine when it starts to burn oil or
something & drop in a 390 or whatever. The truck overall is in
excellent shape, with a solid body all around, and only 110,000 miles,
so that might be a while.

What, if anything, is the best engine/year I could drop in to this truck
that would bolt up to the existing trans?

Thanks in advance, Paul Gayda, Waynesboro, Va.

Hi all! Thanks for the recent help on the extended warranty issue. Going
off of the majority's advice, I have opted not to purchase the extended
warranty. However, I have two quick questions:

1. Should I have a mechanic inspect my truck before I hit 36k to make sure
everything is hunky dory? If so, should it NOT be a ford dealership? Do
you think they would bypass something expensive so they wouldn't have to
pay for it?

2. Are there any Ford truck clubs or happenings or anythinging or anyone
in Oklahoma??

Thanks!

I also tried to find info on the difference between a 272 and a 292 engine
in my 56 f- 100. The manual that I have shows that there were only 3
engines, a 272, a 302, and a 332 cubic inch. But it also shows an optional
4 barrel carb.which may be the difference between a 272 and a 292. My
engine has no stampings or indications of what size it is.

Some of the other question that need to be asked is, Are you looking at
smog laws? Is this a 2x or 4x4? Are you looking for on road or off
road performance? Do you want highway horses or stump pulling grunt?

Some of the easy driveway performace adds are a good tuneup and upgrade
the ignition system, replace the intake a carb and maybe add a duel
exahust. First you need to decide what type of performance you are
looking for.

The Aerostar's power windows quit working first the drivers door which
turned out to be the frame of the door had cracked allowing the motor to
twist and putting it out of aliment. I fixed it by stop drilling the crack,
took a couple brackets and pop riveted them across the crack. the passenger
side needed cleaning and grease!
My Haynes manuals have good wiring diagrams and I used it to trace and
test every wire related to the windows, it got vary frustrating. Try
testing the wires at the door switch with a volt meter you can use a 12v
bulb with two wires attached to it if you don't have a volt meter. If you
have power there you can try the plug for the motor if there's power there
it's ether a big buck motor (I don't think it is) or just needs a little
maintenance.
If you don't have power at the switch you will need to trace back from
there until you find an open or short in the line. I have Haynes for
Escort, Tempo, Aerostar and F100 if you need a diagram and they use the
same color code as what I have, I can scan it and email to you if you want.

OK, Sugar! sorry had to do it! Later!

In my experience, the later rear drums are bigger. A 67 F100 drum is
(this is a guestimate from memory) about 1/4-1/2 narrower. I don't know
if it would solve the problem as I believe the wheel stays in the same
position. You can shave the axles, cut out space from the house and
weld it back together. Not a fun task but very do-able.

I'm running 3.25:1. It works really well. I have 35x10.5-15 tires
though. I have a pretty good balance of accel vs economy. If I want
more acceleration I could put smaller tires on it. The 390 gives it
plenty of pep though.

Low restriction exhaust, Edelbrock carb, Performer intake (not fun since
the heads have to come off to put in on). As to dropping in a 390,
you can easily convert the 360 over to a 390 when its pulled, a whole
lot cheaper than buying a 390 core. The only difference is the crank.

Any FE block will bolt right on. I'm kinda partial to them.

You requested engine sizes that owners have in their trucks.

I had the same in my 84 Bronco II. What my problem was, was that the

I've actually have the whole 262 for sale. I'm sticking a 350 into my 64
F100 (huge sin I know). The engine ran when it was pulled, but it was
tired, I have know idea what shape the crank is in, however, the truck
only had around 60K miles on it. If your interested in the engine, I've
got the starter, H20 pump, etc. I'd like to get rid of the whole engine,
make me an offer if your interested.

While not a charter member, Ken "recurited" me to list when it was
still around 100. Back then when the question of the split came up, I
voted no. Now with many more "listers", I have changed my mind. I will
still subscribe to both in digest form, but I am of the feeling that all
would benefit from the split.

I don't contribute much to the list anymore, but I still get a lot out
of it. So for my part, Ken, check's in the mail...

Hello People,

Question:
If Ford used the same engine design of the flathead from 1939 to 1953,
would it be safe to "assume" that the drive shaft and rearends in the
trucks are also the same? Such as driveshaft length and rearend size
and gearing.

Thanks,

Bill Flood,
I think it'd be safe to say, "bring a tape measure to the purchase." You
know what ass-u-me means, right?

Here's a list off the top of my head (plus a couple of suggest).
Let me know of others. I know I'm missing a bunch, like the
MELs but I don't recall exact displacements - too many numbers
to remember. Any and every truck engine family you can think of
please let me know....

2.3 Liter, 223 (straight six), 262 (straight six), 289/302 (whats
the smaller cousin size?), 351W, 351C, 351/400M, 332-428 FE,
427FE side oiler (in a class by itself!), 460, 6.4L diesel and
7.3L diesel.

The little brother to the 289/302 is the 260.
