OK, I sat quietly through the entire PCV thread but now Harry has
provoked even me to comment on his comments. Unless his ZX-6 is
supercharged there is NO way it has a top speed of 172. The fastest
production bike from 1992 until 1997 has been the ZX-11 which has a top
speed of 174 (Honda has since come out with the CBR-1100XX which has a
top speed of 178.5). The fastest production 600 tops out at around 145,
which is a very far cry from the 172 that happy Harry suggests his ZX-6,
not even a ZX-6R, will do. I know this is not Ford truck related and I
apologize. Harry, if you'd like to give me some more info on your 600
wonderbike please e-mail me directly. I'd love to hear more about this.

Hi Don,
I agree with Swell, I had a rear diff on my CJ Rebuilt drum to drum and
the only thing I kept was the ring and pinion. It cost 400.00 and if I
bought it from them, R and P would have only been 150.00 more if I had it
installed right then.
But watch out, I am on a budget and only wanted to do this once. I did my
homework, and called ARB airlocker Co. for a dealer/installer in my area.
Apparrently they check out their franchisees and only associate themselves
with reputable folks, great warrantys are available from shops that just do
rearends. Here in WA. it was Ring And Pinion Service. Good Luck,

I am new to the list just a few days old. I try to read a while before
jumping in though I am in need a some help. I have a 89' Bronco XLT 4x4 with
the 302. I do dearly love my truck although it now has about 180k miles all
original with no major work. It is now getting very demanding and I have
come to the cross roads where I have to do something. The engine has to be
rebuilt or replaced which I have done quite a few, but all were pre 70's no
EMS I want to know how much I can do and still be able to hook it back up to
the "puter". I would even consider going back with a big block as milage has
never been one of its strong points. I don't know how this will effect the
electronics either. It also has a automatic trans which I would like to
ditch in favor of a toploader. Any coments would be of great help.

Subject: 9 inch carrier yoke bearing
Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

I noticed a leak from my differential last night. I pulled the yoke,
figured it was the obvious - leaking seal. Well, the seal did need
replacing but I noticed that the bearing is very worn. You can jiggle
the yoke about 1/16th+. I think this is what caused the seal to leak.
I've had a carrier out before and replaced the axle bearings, really not
too big of a deal once the carrier is out (taking it out is a hassle though).

I don't have a clue as to how to replace the yoke bearing. Can it be done
with the carrier in place? Do I need a special tool to take out the bearing
and/or to put the new one in place? What do I need to do? I'm not timid
about working on this thing, just that I lack experience with axles so any
suggestions would be appreciated.

This is a real pain since I just put expensive Mobil 1 in it - going to get
a large bowl to catch that clear gold. I shouldn't have been in such a
hurry when I put the carrier in the housing in the first place.

Subject: 52 F-1 brake mods
Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Hi. I have an 52 F-1 with brakes that are pretty crumby. They pull all the
time and require a lot of maintenance.

I'm looking for some advice from someone that has an older truck like mine
that has done some modifying to their brake system.

I would first of all like to get rid of the rearend and put in something
that I can drive at a reasonable speed on the highway with. I'm not sure of
the ratio that I should go with or size of rearend. Any suggestions as to
what I can replace it with? This replacement can have either disks or
drums. Secondly I would like to put in disk brakes on the front. What
model vehicle should I use to borrow spindles and calipers from. Thirdly, I
want to have the dual master cylinder system with power brakes. Is the
flathead 8 capable of creating enough vacuum for the brake booster? I'll
also need to rig the brake pedal if I'm to change the location of the master
cylinder (now is under the floor boards). Any ideas what model truck (or
car) will work?

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Chances are that you have the 8" knuckles and not the smaller 6"
knuckles. With the 8" ers you are almost out of luck. You would have
to have a custom caliper mount made and find the rest of the parts to
fit. It would just be easier to find a complete front end.

Option 2 with the 8"ers would be to remove your front end and have a
good shop cut the old knuckles off and replace them with the newer open
knuckle and disk brakes.


The following I have not tried. I have taken my drum brake spindles and
hubs and put them on a newer openknuckle front axle. The *hevy 1/2, 3/4
(lower GVWR) ton solid front ends use a six stud spindle mounting
system. This is the same size as the six bolt mounting on the Fords
with drum brakes. When Ford switched to disk they used five larger
studs. If you ever have the closed knuckles off of the axle replace the
bolts with studs.

If you have the 6"ers you might be able to fit disk brakes on the axle.
Go to a You-Yank-It and grab a set of calipers and caliper mounts off of
a 3/4 ton *hevy. You can take the hubs, spindle and rotor if they are
in good shape. If you have an in with the guy at the parts counter you
just might be able to find a rotor that will slide on over the hub and
wheel studs or one that can be attached with the wheel studs. Go home
take your front end entirely apart, replace the spindle bolts with
longer studs because you will be adding the width of the caliper mount
behind the spindle. Now slap everything together with new grease and
seals, reattach the brakes and hope your master cylinder is up to it.

I have not actually put disk brakes on to an older closed knuckle front
end so you might want to do some more research first. There is a
conversion to put disk brakes on to a Bronco it shouldn't be any more
complicated with the 3/4 ton parts.

Someone else out there should be able to come up with some modle years
of *hevys that used disk brakes

Harry left the list 2 days ago. Trying to be diplomatic I asked him to
reconsider - I guess he hasn't. I learned a long time ago that if you
try to be right about everything you end up not being very happy.
Unfortunately, he had to be "right" quite a bit. Oh well, live and learn.
With all thats gone on I think it would be appropriate for us to expand
the charter so I won't be at a complete loss when problems arrive. I
know solutions that work but I don't want to play God. If anyone has any
suggestions for charter additions, please send them my way. If and when
I get around to updating the charter I'll put up new charter items to a
vote.

On to Ford trucks... the new web site is back up. I had to temporarily
use the old site for a couple of days. If anyone has links to Ford or
truck related sites, suppliers, items of interest, Ford clipart or
pictures please send them my way. The web site in going to get some
major expansion... we use about 2.1meg of web space and I'd like to grow
our site size to about 10 meg. If anyone here knows anything about
programming CGI scripts, drop me line. Also, some of the ads are getting
out of date. If your ad no longer needs to be on the site please let me
know. I'm going to start a 3 month time limit on the ads to make them

Someone was asking about the AOD.

A word of advice, Big Bucks!? If it is just the belt, It should not be
too expensive. however, depending on how old your tranny is, some
component may be worn, and threfore, it may not perform as you would like
to after the repair. I strongly urge you to budget for a Ford reman or
Jasper Reman. It may turn out cheaper if there are more than just a belt.
A fully warranteed AOD will run you about $1,100 while a half done tranny
repair will cost you $700-800 easily.

That's why we never send anything to a tranny shop anymore. When we spend
our customer's big money, we would like to give them a 30Kmiles Warantee
with it. Actually, another reason is that there are only a handful of
people in each city that I trully believe are good tranny mechanic. These
good ones are usually too busy.

I think, if you are willing to go the distance I would put a full clip under
the front end. You can find a wrecked Mustang II and take the front of the
frame. This gives you the disc brakes and a good stearing box. You will
have to work out the motor mounts for the flat head, but that isn't a
problem. The engine vacum will run the booster with no problem. I think I
would steal the the rear end out of the car also if you can find one with a
good 8" rear end. I am not sure on the exact width of the frame on the 52',
but I bet it is very close. It will have drums brakes on the rear. I have
read about a company that make a conversion kit to make 4 wheel disc brakes.
I can't remember the name right off. It seems like a lot of trouble I know.
It is worth it. The new brakes, stearing, and suspention really make a
fantastic truck out of it.

Does anyone know if I can replace my entire Oil Bath Air Cleaner with a
Paper Element Air Cleaner? It has to fit the 1 Barrel Carburetor on my 66
F100, with a 249 C.I. Straight Six.
