Subject: FTE Perf - Bigger tires in back

I am considering putting larger tires on the back of my '95 Bronco than the
ones in the front - I am told by Discount Tire not to do this as it will
damage the transfer case when I am 4 wheeling - my theory is that I do not 4
wheel on anything but dirt which will give away from the difference in
rotation from front to rear - has anyone tried to do this on a 4 wheel drive
?

folks are using in the PSD since I now have 1500 miles on mine and I should
start to think about the oil change. Thank you.

I know how you mean, that's why I worked on the 390 so hard, had a little
knock in the 360, but only at idle....it was there for nearly a year, but
you never know how long its got left ... and just like your situation, the
timing chain went out on the 360 a month or so before I pulled it out ...

Why ? Not everyone lives up in the great white north and needs the extra
clearance on the 4wd. I know guys around here who use the 4wd in the rain
even. And how many times have you seen those Jeeps and little things all
jacked up but staying on the road ? I think its something like 90% of all
the vehicle use leaves them on the road and not needing the extra ground
clearance ... I saw a Ch*bby pickup at a new car show and thought it looked
odd ... it was lowered and had a Corvette 5.7L with AWD hooked up to it...
pretty cool for a chubby, though not very practical after the 8" snows we
usually get piling up in the winter. Anyway I've wondered why there aren't
MORE 4x4's being lowered, my Dad can't stand to have a vehicle jacked up,
he didn't like the Eagle sitting as high as it did, but the Tempo sits just
right (yes its AWD), and now he's got an F250HD (89?) that sits up. I
think there's only been a couple of times that we were afraid the Tempo
wouldn't make it through something, and every time it did ... so I don't
think sitting too low is really an issue once you get into town or below
the MN state line :)

Hi All,

I would like to make a request. Please talk to your
fellow truckers and find out about auto shows in your
area. They don't have to be Ford specific or truck
specific. If you have a form or flier, great! You
can fax it to me at (770) 806-1955 or mail it to me at
PO Box 422, Lilburn GA, 30048. If all you have is a rumor
contact me anyway. I've learned of five shows in the
last 24 hours, just by calling for info on one show.

If you are wondering what this is for, Ken and I would
like to meet more of you, and we know that Pigeon Forge
is a long way for some of you. So we are going to try
to see if we can go to some of these other shows around
the country.

I appreciate any help you can give.

Sincerely,
Peggy Payne FTEI

Ken: The best one in So Cal is the Ford Knott's Berry Farm show around
April 18th every year. Quite a few trucks and lots of other old Fords.
Around 2000 cars showed up this year.

Well if you've never made it to Hot August Nights in Reno, I suggest you do.

I drive the 450 miles every year for that show. Lots of good truck stuff
too. I found dealer sales pamphlets and an owners manual for a 73 I was
going to be building. I'll be there this year, definately pickin up stuff
for Tweety. If you check Reno's website (dont ask me what it is) it will
have some dates for you.

Subject: FTE Perf - galaxie...any engine buffs Please read

I was talking with my father about his old galaxy. He said it was a '67
500 with a 440/4-spd( he was unsure but was almost positive it was a
440). He said it was very rare even when he owned it. He said it was
like a factory built racer. I have never heard of a ford 440. Does
anybody have any idea what engine this could have been. He said it was
like trying to control a missle. It had "balls to the walls" power. Any
input would be appreciated

Subject: Re: FTE Perf - galaxie...any engine buffs Please read

The only 'Rare' Ford Engine produced for street applications in '67,
that I'm aware of, was the 427 Cammer. Most were in factory sponsored
Mustangs and executive cars but maybe one slipped into a production
Galaxy. Eat your hearts out, a Cammer crate engine, complete, could be
purchased through a Ford Parts Counter for under $3k in 1968. I don't
recall if the 427 Wedge was still available for production/experimental
vehicles in '67 but they were somewhat common from from '63-66. The
other 1967 FE was a 428 '7 Seven Liter' and 428 SCJ and they were
produced in relatively large numbers in Mustang, intermediate and full
sized production cars.

440 was a Mopar Engine put in a kajilillion production cars. The
440/Torqueflight could smoke my daily driver 4-speed R code wedge 63 1/2
500 off the line. A 440 Galaxie 500 would indeed be rare.

Subject: FTE Perf - Edelbrock, pcv

I have a question concerning my Edelbrock carb, and where the pcv hose
hooks up to it. I raed in the manual that the pcv is supposed to hook at
the rear of the intake manifold, but I can't find a place to run it to,
and right now it is hooked up to the largest middle vacuum inlet in hte
front of my Edelbrock Performer carb. Anyone know exactly where it
should be hooked up? My truck is a 79 F150 4x4 with a 460 bbl.

Thanks once again,

Justin Farcas --

That'll work. I have a vacuum tree on the back of my 460-Performenr RPM
that handles the power brakes and other vacuum requirements. You could
put a tree with an additional opening if you wanted to run your PVC off
the manifold.
