Subject: FW: engine swapping

Hi Neal,

Your email did not indicate where you are located, but I have not had
much trouble finding Y-block parts here on the east coast (I'm in
Connecticut). Last year, one of our members advertised a (free?)
complete, good engine/tranny on our web page: just wanted to make sure
it went to someone who cares about old Fords. Another member, Lee Hardy
from Connecticut, informed us all that he had 5 barns full of Ford truck
parts, from the 30's thru 56. I took a ride over and looked around. He
wasn't kidding: had all the parts arranged in rows, e.g., front fenders,
rear fenders, cabs, beds, engines, etc. I never saw so many Y-blocks in
one place before. I've also had very good luck at the Carlisle,
Pennsylvania swap meets (next one is 4/22-26), and with Hemmings. I
have a recently rebuilt 292 with the F100 3-speed sitting on my barn
floor (completely filled with clean motor oil), plus several extra
manifolds. Not sure I want to part with them yet, but right now, am
planning on installing a built-up 289 with a C4 instead of the original
drivetrain. Please feel free to email me if you want more info. Good
luck.
Gary Tkaczyk

I would also be interested in a poster like this. Who has the original that
is on the front of the Mac's catalog (grills from '48-'72). That would make
a nice poster! I e-mailed Mac's and they said they didn't have anthing like
that to sell me. Someone has to have the original artwork.

I'm using Microsoft's Outlook. Outlook Express and the other Microsoft
packages should be similar. From the Tools menu, choose Options. Then
click on the Mail Format tab. Make sure "Plain text" is selected. I
think that it is also important to have any features that notify you
when your message is received or read, turned off for posting to lists.

Not only that, but it has been defiled with a Chevy drivetrain. Worse
yet, it is the anemic 305 under the hood. The horror! You'd think that
for $20,000 you would at least get a Ford engine.

Yes, it is defiled...but it is unique. Don't think I would go 20K, but for
6 or 7
I would live with the 302.

Is there anyone out there that sells reproduced
>pictures or posters of these F-100.


I did see a very good art print at a resturant. I wish I coud
remember the artists name. It was 4 or 5 F100s by an old ford
service garage. There was even a little peddal F100 in the picture.
Anyone know the artists name?

Yes 1983 had CFI or Central fuel injection or throttle body. Tranny came
from the same car and I already replaced the original rear with a Ford 9
inch with 3.00 gears so it should cruise very well, just found out that I
took off the throttle kick down linkage because it wouldn't fit and I
needed to find a way to keep it on, oh well, already got cleaned up
(trashed) so back to the junk yard or one of those Lokar cables.

Yes, its a 5.o out of a 1983 Cougar with CFI (throttle body) fuel injection. I
used the wiring harness out of the donor car for the Fuel injection only. The
motor runs great
and I found the problem with the AOD, its non computer controlled, I just didn't
have the throttle kickdown arm on it, It doesn't fit, so I need to bend a new one,
or use the cables from Lokar.
