Will a ford 9" 3rd member from an early model bronco(Small style 66-77) fit my 9" assembly in my 84 F-150, are they the same splines?
also it has 3.50(he sais) but didn't all fords come with 3.55's??
can someone please give me the years with the different spline counts??
28 or 31??

Thanks,
Joel Thomas

I had a similar search and was told that the 28 and 31 splines were
substituted on the assembly line as they were available, that there was no
real ryhme or reason as to which truck got which. My truck originally had
the 28's, but when I got a new rear end, I had to find some 31 spline axles.

Hi all out there in Ford country.

I got to cleaning out my book case and have several yeas
accumulation of old Truckin Magazines I would like to get rid of.
They're taking up room that I could use to collect more stuff that I
probably won't ever use either.

Anyway, I have all years from '84 through '99, all in binders by
the year.

I would like to sell them complete by the year, or the whole lot. I
would rather not break them up by individual magazine.

I am only logged on to the Pre61 and the Performance list, so if
any of you want to pass this on to any of the other lists I would
appreciate it.

Any one interested can contact me off list.

TIA

Careful with the blanket statement "all Fords"...

3.55's are a ratio normally manufactured for the 8.8"
rear end. With the popularity of the 5.0 Mustang,
you've probably heard 3.55's or 3.73's tossed around,
much like in the old days "I got 4.11's" used to get
tossed around.

Normal ratio's you'll hear for the 9" are 2.73, 3.00,
3.25, 3.50, 3.70, 3.90, 4.11, and it keeps going up
from there.

Are you passing over the EGR or heat riser ports with the fuel line ? If so,
this could be adding more heat than you expect to be getting in the system ...


What about the fuel pump ? Standard one ? If its getting weak it could add
to these problems ...

Yikes, running against the headers (even ceramic ones) can really cause some
problems I would think ... stock routing though goes pretty close I would think
... a shield might not be a bad idea here, something to insulate them a little
bit.

What about a cowl style hood that will extract the air through the back of it
? might be more effective in lowering engine temps too ... just a thought.
One of the autocrossers here just put some spacers under a stock hood to lift
the back of it up, keeps his 'stang a bit cooler.

Subject: Power Steering and truck updates.

Whew, well it was an awesome weekend, didn't start that way, but feels good today.
My girlfriend's car lost its tranny on Thurs. night, so I took fri. off to
get the power steering hooked up in my truck and go tow her car home. As some
of you know I'm swapping from the ram style steering to the 78/9 integrated
style of steering on a 74 (drivetrain) 4x4.

I finally got everything together and got the truck fired up on Fri. 10am-ish,
great right ? Wrong. Wouldn't turn left and seemed to have a leak. Finally
got enough fluid in it and it started turning left again, but still leaking.
After several calls I found another used box for $75 with a 30 day warranty
on it. I ran down to pick that up and discovered a whole new gem ... they have
a 78/9 Bronco, complete (before I took the steering box of course) with a tap
in the front left. I grabbed the steering wheel off of it too. Also found
several other old trucks that I might be able to use a couple of pieces off
of. Anyway with a friend helping me, and working out a few more errands and
bugs I got it fired up again at 10:00pm and drove it into town. Its much better,
still some whine in the pump and needs a cooler line run to keep the heat at
bay, but it is much nicer than the old ram style. I've still got some worn
ball joints I think, but the truck tracks straight and is reasonably easy to
drive.

Sat. I managed to run my fastest ever at the go-kart track with my car ... 83.2x
seconds in 2 laps. Not bad, the fastest in my class are running 81 and 82,
so I've got a little to make up for, but ditching a passenger and playing with
tire pressures might just get me there :)

Sunday we decided to skip the race and used my truck to haul the Mustang from
Des Moines to Ames (45+ miles each way) ... truck ran flawlessly (except for
my own stupidity flooding it on starting hot) I drove it all day yesterday
and to work today, dunno if I can bring myself to switch the rest of the stuff
for a few more months. I'll also get my steering conversion page updated in
the next few days to reflect the rest of the work.

And Dodge engines aren't completely useless, the shorter filter they require
works great for clearing the new power steering box until my remote filter kit
comes in today.

Just my $.02

have a cowl hood with rear facing intake...
have NO egr or heat risers at all.. (1970)
the spacers under back of hoood may indeed be a good idea.. just need to
figure how to remount it..
