Does anyone without hardened valve seats use a lead additive or is it
unnecessary?? Is there an alternative to lead additive/substitute?
Thanks.

This should be the easiest swap you can make because the 352 FE was an
option on the 1966 trucks. 360/390 are also FE motors (get the 390).

Yes. On the engine is a ball that screws into the engine. The new engine

Do you have two mounts on either side or is there one in front of the
motor? The engines on my '61 and '64 just have a big plate bolted to the
front of the engine that mounts to the frame just behind the radiator. Is
this not the case on yours? If not, this change was probably made in 1965
when TIB was introduced. In that case, I am pretty sure the towers that
are welded stay put and you just need different mounts (goes between the
engine and the tower).

That's probably it. The wiring will be exactly the same as your Six as far
as components are concerned. You might have to lengthen/shorten some wires
to accomodate new locations for the items you mentioned.

Most likely, yes. You should get a radiator for a 1966 F100 w/352 V8.

Sure, just order them for a 1966 F100 w/manual trans and 352 V8, if you can
find somebody who makes them.

Since the engine you want to put in is identical (externally) to an engine
that was available from the factory on your truck, you should be able to
find everything you need over the counter at a local parts store.

Herb: Both of these are "FE" engines. All "FE" engines carry the same
bellhousing, motormount, clutch, etc bolt patterns. The 1966 standard V8 was a
352, also an "FE" engine. Find one in your local salvage yard and get all the
necessary hardware and wiring. Try to stay away from the 360. Very low
compression. The 390 is an excellent choice and very available in most areas.
Was a very popular engine from '61 thru '67 in Fords/Mercs/T'birds. If you
really want power the CJ version of a 428 would be a good choice, but the
428/410 is balanced externally and requires a different flywheel and front
vibration damper from the rest of the "FE" family. Here is a list of "FE"
engines as I know them:

332; 352; 360; 390; 406; 410; 427; 428. Produced from 1958 thru 1976(I think).

Bill: 390 should last as long without hardened valve seats as with hardened
valve seats, provided you set the timing not to 'ping'/use hi octane fuel.

This is only good for 67-86 trucks (which I guess you would have
since you're on this list).

I run Marvel Mystery Oil, not as a lead substitute but because it
keeps the carb clean (I can testify to this) and is supposed to
be a good top end lube (don't know about this one). My valve train
has 290,000+ miles on it.

What is that stuff anyway (the Marvel)? I just bought my first can because
so many people think it's a good solvent. It smells familiar but I can't
put my finger on it. Is it some variation of another car fluid - like auto
trans fluid or something? It floated on top of 10-30 Castrol. Does it do
that in the engine too?

Bill,
The 390 is a great engine capable of several hundred thousand miles
with proper maintenance. 79K is nothing for the 390. The question I have
is about the last 650 miles and how long the engine sat between those
miles. Did you drive it 2-3 miles a month for the last 22 years? Probably
not. How did you prime the engine before you started it after sitting for
several years? Starting an engine dry like that can put a lot of wear on
the bearing and rings without oil on them. I know because I did it. A
while back there were several listings about how to prepare an engine that
has been sitting for long periods of time. I wonder where you find the
high octane gas to run that high compression engine without it pinging. My
old 390 used to require 95 octane+ or it would sure let me know.

In addition to whatever solvent it has there is also wintergreen extract.
That's probably what you smell. This extract in its purest form is an
excellant cleaner. I've soaked old carbs in it, cleans them real quickly.
Does wonders for frozen rings and rusted bolts. I've run it in the gas tank
and in the crank case (not much in there though, and yes it does mix with
the oil). All the "old-timers" I've met swear by it and it's always worked
for me. Now this stuff isn't some supposed miracle like Slick 50, its just
a very good solvent that also works well as a top end lube. I used it in
about 3 tankfuls of my wife's car and it cleared the injectors (no substitute
though for taken them out and doing it right).

standard charge to change the oil and check the brakes up here runs about
$23 (includes 15% tax) for the oil and about $30 to check the brakes. That is
at the dealerships also, it can be done cheaper also at other places. For
the severe climate packages are for Nothern Canada.

You will want an engine stand for the rebuild, and a engine hoist for the
install.
The hoist You will only need for a day, so a rental is O.K.
The engine stand You may want for several weeks so it's usually worthwile
to buy one. You can buy one thats durable enough for FE use for under $75.
One borrowed from a friend is even better...
The only other "high?" dollar tool is a good torque wrench.

The 240/300 blocks have a threaded hole that the "clutch pivot stud" screws
into.
The FE doesn't have this hole. I found a nut that fit the pivot stud and welded
it to a 5" long piece of 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" long angle iron. I drilled 2 holes
in the angle and secured it to the motor with 2 very convienantly located
motor mount bolts. (one on each side of the correct stud location :-)
I'm sure I could have gone to the auto wreckers and bought the same thing
but with a Ford part number on it off a FE/manual tranny truck, but it only
took about 15 minutes to make what I needed at home and the wreckers is over
an hour round trip...
Once the motor is in place it's real obvious what You need and where it
needs to go. Maybe someone else can describe the "stock" setup for You.
Once the pivot stud is in place the 6cyl pivot shaft and linkages fit fine.


>2. The Steering Gear Box rests on top of the frame, just in front of the
>Bracket for the Clutch. Will this be in the way of the new engine??

The steer box sits on the frame on my '71 also and it clears the 390 by
plenty, headers and all.


>3. The Motor Mount Supports are welded to the frame, am I going to have to
move
>them?? If I have to move them, I will have to take the truck to a welding shop
>and let them do it.

Yes, the mount supports sit at the same width, but 2-3/8" farther rearward
for FE vs. 240/6. The supports on the '71 *bolt on* and the correct holes
for FE were already factory punched in the frame. I just got my ratchet out
and moved them. (-:
You will need to have Yours moved back.

>Am I missing any ??

Starter, engine/battery ground, ign coil, elect choke, oil pressure, H2O
temp, 3 wires on alt.
I had to lengthen the oil pressure wire about 6" to make it reach.
Everything else just plugged right in on my '71.


>5. Am I going to have to have to have the radiator modified in any way,
>increase it's capacity, move the inlet and outlet?

Yes, the 6 cyl rad is inadequate for FE use, plus the inlet/outlet are in
the wrong place. On the '71 the correct mounting holes for the FE radiator
were already there, but I had to trim out a piece of sheet metal about 4"
wide to fit the wider FE rad. This piece was obviously meant to be stamped
out at the factory on FE trucks. A brand new stock 3 row Modine radiator for
FE truck use is only $200 and was a good investment for me.
I wasted that much on leaky junkyard radiators and repairs before I finally
wised up. I really love having a new, clean one with a warranty. (-: YMMV...

You will also need to buy different rad hoses for FE truck.
You may need to change the length of the fan spacer and bolts depending on
where Your 390 comes from...
I run a pair of electric fans on my 390 and absolutely *love* them on these
105 degree CA summer days. They are much more effective than the stock setup.
It also removes that marginally balanced load thats flailing around on a
spacer way out in front of the water pump. I expect my H2O pump bearings to
live a much longer, healthier life without the stock fan on them.


>6. With the Clutch Linkage setup the way it is, am I going to have room to
>install Headers??

The hooker headers I put on the '71 fit fine. They clear the clutch stuff by
nearly 2". I hate the fact that You have to remove pass side header to
change the starter motor, but oh well.

>Who knows what else I am missing,

The accelerator pedal assy is different for FE vs. 6cyl. The shaft is longer
for the 6cyl.(carb is on pass side instead of center of motor) Get the
correct pedal assy and carb linkage from a V8 truck at the wreckers. It
bolted right in on mine.

That pretty well covers it except for exhaust system.
My 6 cyl exhaust was rotted to nothingness, so I put a dual 2-1/2"
w/crossover in.
You'll need to do something....


>but I think I have already made this project
>sound a lot bigger and harder than I should.

On the '71 it was absolutely a breeze. Everything was set up to bolt in FE
right from the factory. Dunno about '66, but I'll bet it's not much worse.
The welded in motor mount supports is inconveniant, but no big deal.

I love my FE390! I don't regret doing my 240/390 swap a bit. Gonna
*seriously* think about disk brakes now tho...

Happy motoring,

Maybe in the states, but here in Canada there's quite a few F-68 and
F-47's as well as the M-47's and M-68's (mercury). To be honest, I've
never seen an F-1 or an F-2. As far as production figures goes, I have
no idea as to how many were built.

Funny you should ask, as a kid in the fifty`s my neighbor worked for
New York State transportion. He drove a 56 f-500 crew cab! Parked it in
the driveway every night. I belive these were specialy built but not by
Ford. I don`t find this as an option in any old factory books so they had
to be custom. Idon`t know what ever happened to these trucks but there....
