Actually, it has to do with the ratio of height : width. Above premise is
basically correct, but may be backwards. Letter designations usually mean
increase in width. An L 60 x 15 is wider than a D 60 x 15, although ratio of
H : W remains proportionatly the same.

Diameter of wheel, not radius

>B= bias ply tires and R= radial tires

"B" is load range, or carrying capacity, usually related to plies of material
used in case of tire, ie: 8 ply = load range "d", 10 plies = load range
"e"......

> 2. What are swing lock Western mirrors?
"Swing Lock" means you can swing them out of the way and they will lock
back into place when you swing them back. This allows you to move the
mirror out of the way and back and still get your adjustment back easily.
Western mirrors are the ones that mount to the top and bottom of the window
opening. The other type swing-lock was the "low mount" which is mounted
below the eye-line (the basic style was used thru 1991 while the westerns
were discontinued after 1979).

Ford used to offer a camper shell from the factory that fit the body
contour of the truck. This was offered 1973-197?. I think the deluxe had
a body colored stripe along the bottom and front of the cap. An option on
these was a sliding window between the cab and camper.

> 4. Is the protection group the lap seat belts?
Actually "protection" means protection for the truck, not you. This
included body side moldings, a hood lock, and I think a glove box lock.

> 5. What exactly are Mag Wheel Covers?
These are the type of wheel covers with the 5 spokes and fake lug nuts used
from 1970-1979. They had a little round bezel in the middle that said
"Ford Motor Company". From 1970-1975 the area between the spokes was
painted gray, 1976-1979 it was black or body accent color on Explorers.
Very atractive wheel cover, I thought. But it looked like crap on the
1980-up bodystyle.

Thanks John!
I printed out your message and saved it with my Ford VIN Build
Sheet. The original cap is gone...there are no mag wheel covers, and I
don't think the original Western Swing Lock mirrors are there either...
sigh...so much for stock condition. I thought the underhood area was
stock until I started working on it...the 360 V8 now sports a 390 4v
manifold and the radiator is not original (1977).
My truck was abused by the previous owners, but now it is in much better
hands.

Mom had the "Deluxe" topper with sliding widows on the sides on the '78 F150.
You could get these fiberglass toppers with fixed or sliding window+screens.
IMHO, very nice toppers.

Subject: '65 Ford F100 352 cid FE, Harmonic Balancer Pulley
Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/enriched; charset="us-ascii"

The referenced engine came with a very small, low mass, harmonic balancer
pulley that has the single accessory belt groove and timing marks on the
rubber mounted part of the pulley. This
arrangement apparently attempts to add the rotational inertia of the
alternator and water pump to the dampener via the fan belt. Was this
arrangement the only one used on this engine or did later production have
an improved harmonic balancer?


I ask this question because my new long block remanufactured engine (from
TAM Manufacturing in Tacoma WA) has an annoying torsional vibration range
from 1350 to 1650 rpm. I feel I should replace the existing, vintage
pulley on which the rubber layer appears to be fatigued or at least
severely checked. (This could compromise accurate setting of the
timing.) Is there a better solution or am I sentenced to replacing with
parts of the same design? Is there a reliable rebuilder who can remould
the rubber in such a balancer?


The answer I received from the local Ford agency is that from what
records they had at hand, there was never a superseding PN for the
original harmonic balancer pulley on the subject engine. The original PN
just went obsolete. This implies Ford never changed the design.


Can anyone shed more light on this? (BTW, I do
have a NOS pulley on the way from NOS Only in San Jose (408) 227-2353 but
it's $165 - ugh.)

Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Hello all,

I have a 73 F-250 with a rusted out radiator mount/front wall and an
equally bad right front inner fender. In prowling junk yards looking for
replacement metal, I've noticed that some 73-79 F150/250s appear to have
galvanized inner fender aprons. Did Ford switch to galvanized for all
models at some point? If so, when? Will fender and radiator support metal
from any 73-79 F-anything fit iin my 73 F-250? It looks like it would, but
I'd be grateful to hear the voice of experience before I take everything
apart!

Also, can anyone comment on JC Whitney's replacement metal for cab front
floors halfs and front cab mounts? Do they fit properly? Relatively
easy/hard to put in? And what would be a "reasonable" price to pay to have
the floor metal installed?

Thanks in advance for your answers to all my questions!

The parts are from a '78 F150 Ranger XLT. It's an F150, but back then they
called them Rangers. Mine is a '78 F150 Custom. All this system has is an
accumulator?/dryer (in one?). The dryer is mounted up front next to the
condenser. I plan on getting new hoses since on the last system I changed
from R12 to 134a, the hoses leaked. Not sure if the expansion valve is
adjustable. It's a valve, not the big aluminum block.

No fan clutch on this truck - direct drive fan.

It's off of a '78 Ranger XLT (460). It has a two row condenser and a
pretty thick evaporator - like 8" thick. It came off of a super cab so it
must be a beefed up system. It has the old York compressor on it, but I am
going to swap it with a newer round compressor off of an '85 (or so) F150.

My truck is a '78 F150 with 302. The cycling switch is located in the AC
box. It must be temp. switched because these is a capillary tube stuck
into the evaporator.

The system is very basic, condenser, dryer (mounted next to condenser),
compressor, and evaporator. There is no external accumulator so I suppose
the dryer serves two purposes or there is no accumulator on this system.

Thanks,

Mike

Actually, ammeter indicates charge rate, or amperage being put into battery.
It does not give an accurate indication of battery charge. A bad battery can
show a high charge rate for awhile, or the ammeter indicates the charge rate
has dropped very low, but the battery may not start the vehicle. A voltage
gauge in conjunction with an ammeter will give you a more accurate picture of
your charging systems condition.
Yes, it connects in series if it is a direct reading type, not a magnetically
induced type.

Actually, a bad battery can read normal charge rate and voltage,
specific gravity would be a better indicator. A monthly check with a
hydrometer works well. A bad cell will read lower than a good cell.

IMHO, it does not give a more accurate picture of the charging system. I do
use both and have often found bad batteries which charged up to 13 volts,
but due to internal defects wouldn't start the engine. An amp would have
shown that the charge rate was way too low to be properly recharging the
battery. I think am amp meter shows more.

Hello: The output shaft of the transmission fits into a gear inside the
gearbox and your xfer casing is being supported by this shaft. If you
have a tranny jack you can remove the gearbox by sliding it rearward
away from the tranny.

Thanks!

Subject: 1973 box question
Message-ID:

I have a 1973 F100 styleside. I am uncertain that the box on my truck is
actually a 73 box because I have tried out bedliners and bed mats that were
supposed to fit a 73 but did not. I have the main rear gas tank with the
auxiliary front tank. There is a bump in the front of the box to accomidate
the auxiliary tank intake. The gas caps are on the outside of the box (i.e.
they are not indented with a flip cover over the gas cap). The reason the
bedliner and mat did not fit is because of the wheel wells. They are very
large (about 39 inches front to back) and have a bulbous shape.

Is this a standard 73 box, a camper special box, or a box from a different
year?

Thanks.

Paul

Before you put on that $165 job. The 352 is the same design as the
360 and 390 and on and on. Any way on most of the larger ci motors,
mine included, the balancer and pully are two different parts. If the
balancer could interchange from the 360 or 390 you could use one of
these and then get the pully as required for your application. I don't
have the crank dimentions handy but I'm sure someone out there does.

Clue us in a little more on what you are doing here. It could just
be stuck on the output shaft coming from the trany. The weight of the
203 pulling down on the shaft could be causing it to bind up. Jack the
t-case up so all of the weight (of the t-case) is on the jack. Also
some of the sealers between the t-case and the adapter will cause a
pretty good stuck.
