Those are pretty stout, I think the only way they collapse is when the rust
bugs get them. Poke arround with a screwdriver to check for rust youself.
$250 sounds ok to me to replace the cab mounts.

Then it's (probably) your rear brakes (If you have the original MC). When
I replaced the MC on my 78 E250, the autoparts nerd gave me the wrong one.
The one he gave me would have worked, but the smaller resivoir would have
been feeding the disks (the claipers take a whold lot of fluid!). Of
course, I took it back.

Just because the leak is with the rear system, it does not mean that it is
a leaking wheel cylinder. You really have to find out where the fluid is
leaking from. Take it to a self serve car wash and wash off all the fluid
that may have spilled from refilling (around the master cylinder, and along
the lines). Let everything dry, then pump you brakes. Look around the
master cylinder, and along the lines, particularly at the connections. You
are looking for a wet spot. Unfortunately, the drums on the Dana 60 are a
bit of a problem to remove, so it's not an easy thing to check the wheel
cylinders, but you can check everything else.

Things to watch for:
Selling you a rebuilt master cylinder when you don't need one. Selling you
rebuilt calipers in the front when your problem is with the rear (the sales
pitch with both of these is something like "well, the seals are gone in
your wheel cylinders. The seals in the master cylinder and calipers are
just as old, so you might as well replace these as well"). If you aren't
careful, you will spend $500 getting a $10 wheel cylinder replaced.
Another one that always tickeled me was "your shoes (or pads) only have 1/3
of the thickness remaining, so you might as well replace them." One third
is a signifigant amount of life, and is not an indication that they need
replacing. Ask the guy "is that the problem?". If it is not the problem,
why are you trying to fix it?

Things I would be sure of:
_IF_ a leaking wheel cylinder is the problem, replace both. You don't want
to go thorugh this again in a couple of months, do you? (probably not
ever).

I also would insist they flush your brake lines with new fluid. DOT 3
fluid absorbs water and becomes contaminated. Probably, your wheel
cylinders started to leak because bits of rust cratered the seals. If you
don't flush the system, you leave that junk in the lines to get your new
seals.

Another suggestion, which you aparently picked up on already, take it to
your friendly Ford dealer. Particularly with the 3/4 ton. Other shops
that do brakes for cars and light trucks may not have the tools to take
your drums off (assuming it is a Dana 60--someone has really buggered up
the axle nuts on my van because they did not have the proper socket to take
them off). In addition, they will only use factory approved parts--no
cheapo parts for the brakes.

Failing brakes is a scary thing. If you need your whole brake system
overhauled, do it. But, one of the biggest scams (in my opinion) in auto
repair is rebuilding good brakes, using the excuse "well, it is a saftey
thing. You don't want to take a chance on your brakes, do you?"

Good luck.

I would say that the regulator is bad, both of my trucks continue to
run when the battery is removed...

If the alt is making noise there is something wrong with it!
They make little noise if any! Take it back where you got
it. Many places can check them on the spot! I hope this
fixes it. I can't think of any outside reason for it to make
noise! if after replacing it, it still doesn't charge, check
the wiring harness! If you don't have a multimeter. use a
light bulb!
Later!

Terry,

If you need help with replacing you cab mounts, I would be glad to counsel
you. I have done this several times and right now I am not up to the
writing a lengthy description. If you want to call me you can.

We just got home from a hot Idaho day at the lake.

My home number is (208) 322-6353

Tomorrow we will head back up to the lake again. You could reach me at
home tomorrow morning between 8:00 am and 10:30 or so.

If you want me to walk you through the task, call I would be glad to help.


Later,

I'm not sure how to send mailto this list! Am I right? Do you just reply to
someone on the list!? Jeez, I hope so!

The front cab mounts colapsed on me truck! I got new replacement parts,
but how do I repair it? Any ideas, I have an appointment for monday at a
body shop, they estimated $250 but I think it will increase. Is this to
expensive? PLEASE HELP!

This truck is in excalant condition but the only thing that was wrong with
it when I got it was cab mounts.... I put to much stress on them last
weekend going to find my fishing spot... PLEASE HELP!!!!

Thank You,

I'll add something here. My '71 F100 was a 6 cyl truck, but came with
a 31-spline limited slip 9". I'm sure the motor and axle were origional,
they agree with the door tag info...
The 31-spline has allegedly got a 3750lb rating instead of the 3200 or 3400lb
of the 28-spline.(according to the auto parts books)
It also uses a larger wheel bearing which is about $80 instead of the $22
bearing that the 28-spline uses. Sigh.

Hmm, that's interesting. I assume the heavier duty units are longer.
(center section wider)
Is this a reliable way to tell a 31-spline from a 28-spline HD unit?
Gotta start watchin at the wreckers..

Happy motoring,

$250.00 to call 715? Where the hell's that fishin' hole Boy!
Bangladesh? Why do you already have the parts an appointment
at a body shop! Don't sound like your looking for
information on how to install them so I'll go with...

Hey Sherm! I don't think that's a do it yourself kind of
job! I'd take it to a body shop if I was you!
