Just as a matter of interest, trucks the vintage of mine (51) came in a
color Ford called Vermilion (Ford used one 'l'), which is a red. I'd like to
stumble on several spray cans of Vermilion touch up paint, just to see what
it looks like. My truck has been painted GM Bright Red, which really should
be titled BRIGHT BRIGHT RED. Lots of questions about whether it was once a
fire truck.

Jim,
I`m in the process of con verting my 56 to rear discs right now.
A77-79 lincoln mark 5 rearend will work. they were 9in right from the
factory. It`s allmost as wide as the truck rear. If your not afraid of
some work it can be made to work using the whole assembly.

Hope this helps!

Sounds good for those people with the 67-72s. My 51, tho, might be a
little more difficult!
General info for those who might be interested - the trucks at least up
through 56 had the master cylinders mounted on the frame under the driver's
floorboard, with an access hole in the floorboard. Was 67 the first year for
the dual master cylinder/split braking system?
Putting disk brakes on the older vehicles which only had a single brake
circuit is a bit tougher, because of the increased amount of fluid needed by
the discs, and the difference in pressure/volume of fluid between discs and
drums. It takes mounting of a dual master cylinder someplace, preferably
power, adding a proportioning valve, and doing some replumbing. That's after
you get some disc setup under the front. Lots of work!
But I'll keep this info about the 73-79s handy - if they still had
kingpins, there's hope yet.

Ok, first my credentials: a professional programmer for 8+ years, plus
I've been programming in assembly since I was 9 (yes, nine) years old.
I have 8 years of C, 2 years C++, 4 years Windows, been programming
professionally and as a hobby since the Apple II, 6502 assember, 80x86
assembler, 680xx assembler, VAX experience, Unix experience, low level
device driver experience (DOS and Windows VXDs), retail software
(Faxworks Pro, Peachtree Accouting), commercial software (Fortune 500
stuff), and much more....

A text file IS NOT EXECUTABLE! Text files are nothing more than a
binary representation of human readable characters. The format common
across all modern machines is ASCII which is a 7 bit format with 8
bit extensions. ASCII has never been, is not, and can not ever be
an executable! Email messages are sent as ASCII data. A virus would
have to be a binary executable. This means the virus could _only_
work on one platform (Mac, DOS, specific flavor of Unix, etc) and
virus' do not infect across platforms. In order to have a virus you
would have to attach it to an email as an ***attachment***. The
user on the other end would have to save the attachment and then
go out and actually exectute it. No different than sending any other
executable (moral here: never run an executable unless you know what
it is). Simply receiving an email will not, cannot and does not give
you a virus. This hoax hall be well documented for over four years
with numerous FAQs about it all over the internet. In the 2600
newsgroups the hackers delite and laugh at ignorant users who fall
for this simple hoax over and over, flooding their corporate email
systems again and again with "WARNING!!!!!". The warning _is_ the
virus because you are duplicating a message to people and they in
turn duplicate it, and so on..... I've worked with people who have
created viruses (form Soviet citizens - it was a badge of honor
there) and they think its funny how people fall for this.

If you think this isn't a hoax, I'm sorry to say this but you are
proving ignorance of how computers work. Hopefully this message
will put an end to this thread in this group. Do yourself a favor,
look up "Good Times" or "Penpal" virus on the net, or go to
www.mcafee.com (makers of VirusScan and VShield) and ask them about
these virus. They'll laugh as they send the standard form explaining
to hoax.

Vary Cool!
I take it the hub end of the axle is different and that's
why the whole rear end? This may work out to be an
advantage. Now a wide wheel and tire could tuck in the well.
That is if I understand correctly. The Lincoln is narrower
than the F 100's? Sounds like a day at Pick a Part! Thanks
for the tip!
Later!

This is a three part question:

1)I have a 351M in my '71 F-100 with C6 and 3.25:1 gears. Should I go
with the Performer cam/intake combo. or the Performer RPM combo? I am
looking for max mileage. 2)Speaking in terms of an 'off-road-only'
applicat ion; would there be any HP gains form removing the PCV line
from the carb, plugging the hole in the carb, and letting the line
vent into the air? I would think so since I would have ONLY fresh air
going into the carb. 3)Do all of you products allow fo r the PCV
hook-up or is it deleated from some.

Thank You for your time.

Sorry to everyone if I came across as an *ssh*le the last post.
Its just that I've seen this Good Times (and its variations)
hoax over and over for several years and no matter how much I
hope it will die it never does. Kind of like chain letters in
the newsgroups - except this isn't a get rich scam.

True Ford truck content:

I have a 3.25:1 9 inch rear end chunk alone or with rear axle for
sale, $125 obo, bearings are new and its in very good condition.
I need to get rid of it. The axle is from a 67 F100.

Also, I have a Motorcraft 65 amp alternator, VGC: $25 obo

Rear window (again, from a 67): $50 obo

If anyone has a 67-72 tailgate with no major dents I'd like to
buy it. Tip for those who don't care about keeping their truck
original - you can use a pre-67 (don't know what years) or a
73-79 tailgate on a 67-72. Both fit but the "FORD" letters are
different sizes.

If it's a car engine, the PCV valve is located in the rear center of the
intake manifold. When you change it, pull out the wire mesh filter that
is underneath the PCV valve, and clean or replace it.

But before you use a good condition '61 unibody tailgate for a later
application...please let me know 'cuz I need this tailgate for my stock

Hey! All this talk about how easy a drum to disc front brake switch for

'61 F100 swap on the later spindles w/discs on his truck?" I had my
kingpins out awhile back, and they didn't need to be torched out like a
couple of the '67+ folks reported having to do. Is this only one of many
differences that my year truck has with the newer ones or will the '73
spindles and discs work for our trucks too? Inquiring minds gotta know!

Does anybody else have any appropriate hubcaps they'd like to get rid of?
My rims are all freshly painted, looking purdy like, and I need to cover up

If I were guessing I'd say yes but I have never done a '61. I do not
Know; hoever, If you go to the parts house and ask about the leagth and
diamiter of the king pin you'll know. The rest of the stuff will go on
but if the KP is not within .002 or so forget it.

There is quite good picture in book "Ford Pickup Color History" by Tom
Brownell and Mike Mueller, pages 82 and 84. Starting '61 F-100 the color is
argent and '63 F-100 came stainless steel hubcaps, the diameter is 9,5
inch.
If you find more hubcaps than you need let me know because I would like to
have those too to my '62 F-100 Unibody.
