Can anyone give me an address for someone at Ford who could possibly
tell me how to tell the difference between a 272 and a 292, and, more
specifically, the year and possibly the model of car that a 292 came
out of?

I've looked, and looked, and looked at that engine and the only
numbers I find are cast into the water pump, which probably doesn't
help me.

I gotta argue with you here. You yourself say that the 350 is
powering a lot of vehicles out there, so how are you being "different"?
Parts are just as available and just as cheap for a 302 as the 350 Chevy.
If you wanna be different, build that 262 with parts from Clifford Research

I agree with John on this one. The Ford/Chevy battle will never cease but
if you want to be different a 350 is not the way to go. Different is a
nailhead Buick or a straight eight or in my case a straight six (223) with
three carbs (1bbl) and split headers...that will smoke the tires and eat
camaros for lunch.

Subject: Motor Oil
Message-id:
Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-transfer-encoding: 7bit

In my former days as an employee of XXXXXXX Oil, parent Company of
XXXXXline motor oil, Much research was done on the effects motor oil
weights had on engines. Some studies were done on various police
departments who had the 4.6L Crown Vics....tried to run
10W40......owners manual calls for 5W30. The police departments almost
burnt the motors up because the oil was too thick and engine tolerances
were so tight, couldn't get enough oil on the top end of the motor.

Other interesting/old news regarding single weight oil. Some of the
studies showed multi-visc. oils do not break down as they should and did
not provide adequate summer time protection on the "thicker" end of the
oils. In other words, 5W 30 won't do the job as well as Super HPO 30
or Super HPO 40 single weigght oils in the summer. The HPO oils are
high detergent oils which should be run in temps that are consttant and
always over 32 degrees F.
I for one run Super HPO 30 in my 71 F-100 360 and in my 89 Merc Grand
Marq. (302, 130,000 trouble free tight and dry miles) in the summer
months when the weather is nice. In the winter, I switch to 5W30 in the
Mercury and 10W 30 in the F-100. I run full synthetic 5W 30 in my 95
Special Service Crown Victoria LX (4.6 Liter)year round.

There are several advantages to synthetic and some disadvantages...
Advantages......better lubrication qualities, better heat disipation,
Studies from "the"
company showed two identical engines dynoed for 100,000 plus miles.
Changes were made at appropriate intervals, engines were torn down. The
motor with synthetic oil provided
little to no indications of wear. The other standard mineral based oil
showed much greater signs of wear.

Disadvantages........Cost, AND you still need to change oil every 3,000
miles or less depending on your driving situation.

As far as putting modern oil in an old engine.....the more advanced, the
better....
it can help with protection better than the old non-detergent oils. As
far as putting
new oils into an old engine with sludge build up that has been running
non-detergent oil, it may braek things loose. Sounds logical to me.

Make your own decisions, experiment a little, see which oil runs best in
your engine. CHanging brands and oil weghts will not cause
problems.....unless you run a motor oil with a high parafin base, then
you can start having problems. I AM TRYING TO KEEP
BRANDS OUT OF THE MOTOR OIL DEBATE. We all have preferences....that is
why I am in the Ford camp. Motor oils are like milk and gasoline(for
the most part)
They all come from basically the same place (pipeline shipments came to
our terminal from other companies, barges came from other companies,
and we put in our own additives). Oils (been to a plant that was
bottling oil for Companies a, b, c, d, e, etc. including there own
branded oil from the same spout!) and gasolines have different
additives which make them slightly different. NO Flame wars here
please! I know from experience on the pipelines and barges gas is all
the same, except for the additives
( I recommend buying 89 or 92-94 octane, they have a greater percentage
of additives
and detergents which help keep modern injectors and fuel systems cleaner
than 87 octane)

Sorry this was so lengthy! Hope it helps someone.

I work for the public library in Knoxville, TN and we are frequently asked
questions about 1964 Ford trucks. We have never been able to find
adequate information on them to help the persons that are restoring them.
Specifically, the current question deals with a 1964 F-100, 292 V8 and
they need a wiring diagram. It would be helpful for us if someone could
recommend a good source for restoring and repairing these trucks. Thank
you for your help.

A guy from Ford emailed me and told me that this service is available
only once to an individual - information will not be given a second
time to anyone. This email address should *not* be given to everyone
to use to email Ford with their questions. This addressis mainly to
provide build sheets for vehicles from 1967 to 1986. Each time this
service is used it costs Ford approximately $500 in research expenses
(not cheap). So use it if you need a build sheet and if its absolutely
necessary then use it. Otherwise we could all lose this valuable
service if its abused. I was informed that the best thing you can do
for help from Ford is to call 1-800-392-FORD. Lets be cautious about
where we post this address and what we say its for. I saw someone post
it on a Usenet group - not a good thing! I'd hate for them to close
shop on it because of email floods and expenses.

A vinyl repair kit can work wonders if you take your time. If thats
not a viable solution you can order dash covers that mold over the

try calling one of the vendors on our suppliers page.

Hi.. I have a 86 Bronco II 4x4 with the 2.9 v6. The Wife realy likes
this little truck, boy can it whip into a parking space at Walmart...
I have had some transmission problems. First one went out, I replaced it
with a junk yard special and it has been ok BUT... it's now making noise
a growelling sound. A tranny shop said that the automatic in these
trucks are only good for 80k or so. He says it just not a very good
trany. Course he will rebuild it for $1200.00 To the point now.

Any good replacement transmissions. What about a B&M rebuilt one or
newer trans? Also the 2.9 is a little short on getup and go, with my gas
milage at 14-15 on the hiway. I know some have put a 5.0 in them but
what 'bout a newer Explorer motor?

Subj: 302 fuel mileage


I can't check my fuel mileage very accurately from one tank full of fuel
because it is impossible to fill the tank to the very top (unless you
fill up at the same pump each time and park in the exact same spot each
time. So I figure my fuel mileage over several tankfuls.

In 1995 I drove my truck 7883 miles and averaged 20.6 mpg.
In 1996 I drove my truck 7270 miles and averaged 20.9 mpg.

(My truck doesn't get used from December thru March because of the salt
used on the roads in the Central NY area....bought it new in December of
1978 and only drove it in snow three times that I remember....now has
172K on it and it still looks pretty much like new.)

My best fuel milage on a trip was on the return from Florida last year.
That was all interstate driving, 1271 miles and averaged 24.2 mpg.

These mileage numbers are a little high, as my odometer reads 102 miles
compared to 100 miles on the yardsticks on the interstate. (2% high).

I built this engine with fuel mileage in mind. I don't make near the
power of the FE's, but my little 302 pulls its 4460# truck along in
fair fashion for its displacement.

I can't imagine getting 8, 10, or 12 mpg like some on this list. But
they must really have fun with all that power!

The survey and voting forms are now on-line. These forms

The survey simply asks for year, model and engine size.
There is a small comment box if you model or engine size
is not listed. You may fill out a survey for each of
your vehicles. After submitting the survey you will be
brought to the voting form.

The vote concerns whether or not we should split into two
lists: pre-1980 and 1980+. Please note that results are not
carved in stone because if we do not receive enough donations
to cover a second list we cannot have one. Regardless of
the vote outcome donations will be used to cover list expenses.
Sorry this issue has to come up again but our traffic is high
and several people have complained and/or unsubscribed because
of the bandwidth. If the vote fails, I will _not_ bring it
up again - the members will be responsible for making it an
issue.

Please vote only once! The voting page has a links at the
bottom that can be used to bring you back to the survey. There
are no links to the "outside world" from the forms.

The web address is: http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.mindspring.com/~fordtrucks/survey.html

Voting ends Saturday, May 3rd at 11:59 pm. As was the case last
time, results with user comments will get posted to the list.
No email addresses or other identifying data will be posted. Comments
may be edited to remove anything which may identify the user (ie.
"I have a 1987 F250" would be changed to "I have a 198x Fxxx").

Thanks everyone!
Ken, "List Mom"

Thank You!

Everyone else here almost had me convinced that my truck doesn't get 20mpg!
