using one of these or similar products from other companies. I'm toying
with the idea of swapping a E4OD into my '79 in order to gain the OD.
Anyone else out there done this??


Looks like we have the same idea, still.

You might check the early to mid 80's trucks ... not too many of them with
351's came with an od, but I would think there would be some 302's out
there....if not there, then check the 'stangs, the 5.0's were runnin AOD's
with the carb (not the AODE) ... and those should bolt right up, if you
have a 4x2 anyway ... not sure on driveshaft lengths or anything there
though...

Hey Gang,
When you have time, take a look at my website. I have posted the few PICS we
took as we were doing the upper half swap. Tell me what you think.

The problem is that the 351 will destroy the AOD that is why you don't
see any 351 with AODS!!!!!!!

Subject: FTE Perf - rebuilt 302 reliability

I'm putting a rebuilt '89 302 from a Mustang into my '88 Ranger.
Several people have mentioned that the 302 has a thin casting
and may have heat problems if it's been bored.
Is anyone familiar with this?
Also, I'm not sure that it has been bored. Does a rebuild
automatically mean it's been bored, or is it done only if
required or desired?

Also, is there any way I can judge the quiality of the job?
The wrecker has an itemized cash register receipt from the
machine shop. Is there anything I should specifically look
for on the receipt?

Subject: FTE Perf - 5.0 Rangers in California

According to a friend in Southern Kalifornia who just parked a very nice
ride with the wrong engine, it's really against the law. Federal adopted by
KA, to put any motor not available from the factory in that particular
vehicle in any emissions non-exempt (early 70's in that state) car/truck.
More important, all that state's laws relating to emissions legislation are
now enforced with potential fines, to the smog tester, that made me gulp
when I heard them. Word is, what was commonly available for an extra $100+,
is no longer available from even long time connections and relatives.

What about the original engine blueprinted, balanced, rechiped and six or
so pounds of boost between smog checks?

Hi Gang!

After numerous delays, we finally have Ford Truck Enthusiasts
t-shirts! We've been promising these for a while and had
many people beg for them over the past several months. The
artist completed the work last week and the design went to
press today. Pricing information will be available this
weekend (after we find out what it will cost to ship them).

The t-shirts are 100% cotton with a front pocket and a design
on the back. Sizes child medium through adult XXXL are
available. For a preview of the design before they go on sale
this weekend:

http://www.ford-trucks.com/tshirt.jpg

The image on the web site is 640x480 pixels, the image on the
shirt is hi-resolution with over 1900x1400 pixels. I believe
most everyone will be happy with the design! To those that
entered a design, we haven't forgotten. Our first order of
business after we make some sales is to provide a prize pack
to you. Any announcement will be made with ordering details
this weekend.

Regards to everyone,
Ken Payne
