Sounds good to me. Are the 73 to 79's considered antique?

If they are covered I would like a catalog.

Subject:IMPORTANT ADMIN NEWS, PLEASE READ

Yesterday I received an email from one of the largest Ford antique
parts companies. They would like to distribute their catalog, free
of charge, to anyone on our list who is interested.

In addition, there was an offer to promote them on our web site.
This company is a very well respected member of the Ford antique
"community" and I have no reason to believe they want to influence
our membership. They simply want to take advantage of the fact that
our site receives 250+ Ford truck visitors a day. I wanted to bring
this to the attention of the list members since I've always kept
list business and finances in the open. I'm in favor of letting
them advertise on the web page only - not on the lists (they made no
mention of advertising on or influencing the lists).

Thanks to the kindness of many members the email list expenses are
paid up for this quarter (up in a month) and most of next quarter.
I would like to offer this company an opportunity to advertise on
our page, covering list expenses so our membership doesn't have to.
List expenses are an on-going item that I would rather not have to
beg the members about. I would also like to try to arrange a group
purchase discount with this company since they seem eager to deal
with us. I haven't actually discussed any terms with this company
as I wanted to approach the membership first. Please be prompt with
your opinions as I would like to get in touch with them ASAP.

What does everyone think about this? It seems like a win-win
situation to me. This method would prevent us from having to depend
on a small minority to pay our expenses. If it seems okay to the
membership, I'll reveal the company name and set up an on-line form
you can use to enter your mailing address in. These would be
forwarded to them so you could get your free parts catalog.

As a side note, now that everything has settled down with having the
baby, finishing touches are being added to our window sticker design
and I've contacted a couple of companies for pricing.

Express your opinions either on the list or email me privately
(kpayne mindspring.com), whichever you feel most comfortable with.

Yes, possibly and they are fairly easy to replace. Getting that huge
tranny and TC (NP 205) out is the pain, those suckers are heavy. The 435
is the first man tranny I ever rebuilt and it was not tough at all. I
bought my parts from a guy called Ed Hartnetts 4 speeds in PA,
215-623-9381 evenings. He's a nice guy willing to help you out. If I
rememebr right, he would rebuild it for 175$, but that was several years
ago. It cost me 178$ these parts.

(1rst gear not synchronized)
2nd synchro ring
2nd gear synchro ring spring
3rd-4th gear synchro assy
4th gear outer cone (mine was trashed, but normally should be OK)
gasket kit
input bearing seal
input bearing
(4) fork pads

Even after 150K miles, gears looked brand new. Opening the
case is impressive as that creeper first gear is huge, almost as wide as
the case.

>Whats a good source of info on rebuilding this tranny? Thanks

I got an old Chiltons that had an exploded view of a 435 out of a
chr*lser. The veiw was for a 2WD, but the guts are the same. It was
enough info to get me through the rebuild. Got chiltons from library.

Being a catalog junkie, I'm all in favor. Vendor catalogs are some of
the best sources of technical info and hobby tips.

I think it is a good idea. It's a good source for information and

Is $300.00 to much to pay for a FE 390, minus the intake manifold and carb?
The salvage yard "guarantees" to provide me with an engine that I can rebuild.
I still need to find out what they consider an engine that can be rebuilt is.

Hello to all,

I have a 1951 F-1 and the tranny seems to be leaking fluid from around
the shafts that enter the side cover of the tranny. I believe these are
the shift forks. Does anyone know
where I can get the seals or bushings??? I tried several local guys and
they said they aren't made anymore. Thanks in Advance.

Yes Ken I think it would be fine if they wanted to advertise on the web
site, and YES I would like a catalog.
AS LONG AS I don't end up on someones mailing list... Email or snailmail.

Oooh, I'd forgotton about the window sticker! COOL!

Thanks Ken, You do an *excellent* job keeping the list together,
much appreciated....

Steve, greetings from a fellow Ford Truck enthusiast! ('80 F250 4X4, 351C).
I've rebuilt several 9 inchers with the help of a long-time Ford truck fleet
mechanic in Alaska. Indeed the pinion shims are to set pinion engagement
depth and eliminate pinion shaft end play. That part is not as critical as
the ring gear contact pressure. If your rebuild includes new gears (in
addition to bearings), use the original pinion shims for default depth. Then,
using the ring-gear assembly adjusting nuts and a regular piece of yellow
notepad paper (legal pad) cut in about a one inch strip fed into the gear
mesh, adjust the ring-gear contact pressure until the pinion-to-ring-gear
spacing just tightly creases but does not cut the paper as it is fed between
the gears. It works everytime for me. Hope this helps. Regards from Redding,
CA, Paul

If you really want to meet all three of those goals, turbo-charging comes to
mind. The compression ratio is perfect for turbo and it makes a nice looking
package under the hood when it's done. Going with the B&S big cubes will get
you horsepower, but not gas mileage. Turbo-charging is a little more
involved, but Paxton (remember them?) makes bolt on kits that aren't too
difficult for do-it-yourselfers. They also offer recommendations for matching
the right cam and rear-end ratios to the package. Something to think
about...... Regards from Redding, CA, Paul.

I think $300 ought to get you a complete FE 390, course if your going for a
aftermarket intake and carb, your ok.
A rebuild core ought not cost more than $150.
rebuildable
can be bored to .30 or less
crank can be ground to .30 or less
no cracks in block or heads

expect to
rebore block $6 per hole
new pistons and rings
grind crank ? ($120)
new bearings
line bore block
recondition rods
new oil pump
replace all valves and valve seats and some valve guides (best to replace
them all)
new push rods and rockers
gasket set
water pump
cam bearings
cam (?)

I'm sure I left something out.
