Subject: FTE Perf - Electronic trany

I recently bought a 53 F100 with a 3.8 motor and trany from a 88 T-bird. I
don't know who the guy is that installed it (several owners ago) but he
didn't have any luck installing the digital instrument cluster. the only
thing that works is the fuel gage. I want to take it all out and install a
set of VDO or Autometer gauges. Does anyone know if an electronic speedo or
mechanical speedo from these companies will work? Does the stock T-bird
trany have a gear for a mech.speedo?

Well, its that time of year again. Ford Truck Enthusiasts
would like to use the power of all our list members to
help someone in need during this time of year. If you
know someone in dire straits, whether they are a list
member or not, please email me (off the list to keep the
traffic down) at kpayne ford-trucks.com.

I'll present all the charity submissions on Sunday on the
website, minus names, and we'll vote on who we want to
support. Last year, we raised about $750 in two weeks
for a very worthy cause. This year, I'm sure we can do
even more. Together, we have great strength.

Regards,
Ken Payne

Small plastic valve.. Could be the pressure Valve that goes under the filter
screen... Filter screen then spring then valve... What exactly does it look
like, because I know that some of the later model C6's used flutter valves
in the valve body (Actually called them pucks). These were just flat pieces
of rubber, worked similarly to the check balls in the valve body... If this
is what you have a good Check ball book from ATSG will help you solve your
problem.

Are you sure that you put the throttle valve back in... That is what it
sounds like you are describing... It goes into the casing of the tranny, and
then the throttle valve rod, and then the vacuum controlled modulator screws
into the back and into the TV rod.... Hope that helps, if not email me back
and I'll keep racking my brain

Ok, where the modulator goes into the casing, there is a rod that actually
goes into the modulator, this is the throttle valve rod, and on the other
end of that rod (not connected) that is the throttle valve. One end of this
valve should be cupped (or belled as you described it) to accept the rod...

piece its got a thinner cylindrical shaft about 3/16" then goes to a larger
round part about3/4 inch diameter with a o ring in the groove. and then it
rounds off.. its really weird

Subject: FTE Perf - Early heads late engine

Will early 69-70 windsor heads bolt straight up on a 80's 351 ? Assuming
that it is not a high lift cam are the dished pistons and stock reliefs
enough so that there will be no valve banging? Thanks
Dan
