I am very excited about all my husbands classics. 57 Ranchero, 56

to his "collection".

Del,

Thanks for the reply. We were going to replace the 292 with a 302 C4
combinbation. My girlfriend lost three fingers in an accident a few years ago
and doesn't like to drive stick, so i figured if i was going to replace the
transmission, maybe i'd just do a complete swap. I also thought about doing a
street rod capable of towing. Either way, it just feels to me from driving
the truck that the 292 won't do the job, and 302 parts are more accessible.

FTEers,

Getting my 57 was my wife's idea. She would think twice about suggesting this
again! I can't hide a bag of doritos from her, I don't see how you keep a 1
1/2 ton truck from her for long. How would you like for her to keep her 2
carat diamond earrings from you?

Just got around to reading your post, and while I don't have much to say
about the speedo, I wondered if you used the '70 flex plate for the C-4 or
got the correct unbalance weight plate from an '82 up? Being clever enough
to mix all that stuff, you probably caught this one, but just in case.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Pop, No More Brakes

I had a sudden and total brake failure today. A plastic plug at the bottom
of the master cylinder (from a 72 Mustang, btw) blew out, taking all the
brake fluid with it. Luckily the truck was in the driveway at the
time. Does anybody know why the plug would blow out? Seems like it might
be for pressure relief, but that's kinda dumb. If there's too much
pressure you might force a leak somewhere in the line, but at least you'd
probably get a warning that something was wrong instead of just having your
brakes go out suddenly. The hole that the plug was in appears to be
threaded (or maybe just ribbed to keep the plug in place?). Can I screw a
plug in there and keep using this master cylinder or do I need to get a new
one?

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - Pop, No More Brakes

Dan. I'm not familiar with that particular master cylinder, but is this
plug that blew out actually
meant to be just some kind of shipping? or whatever plug. If I recall
correctly, all the recent
master cylinders I've purchased have come with plastic plugs installed.
Some suggest bench
bleeding before installation and would suppose some sort of plug would be
necessary.
Is this a dual resevoir master cyclinder? Does it have a front and rear
cylinder? Maybe a
72Mustang owner is reading and go check the original setup and let us know.
I can't
imagine any kind of plastic plug in a master cylinder that was intended to
be left in place
during operation.
Tom

Anyone know how to remove the pulley from a flat 8 water pump? You have to
remove the pulley in order to remove the lock ring to rebuild it. When I
originally rebuilt it I had to replace the pulleys anyway, so they were
allowed to me busted to get off, now, trying to save the pulleys cost me the
pule and the left water pump... Any Suggestions?

I recieved a gift from my wife today... a Classic Trucks Magazine with
the new 2000 Calender within. I was surprized because I know she
sometimes gets exasperated with me working on my truck... which is
frequent. She even went through it and tried to find the one she
liked. I have a desire to build myself a nice rod out of a '46 Ford to
'56 because of the 'bubble' top look. She has her eye on a certain
type. I can see if I can find that 'certain' truck... heh.. it's a
shoe in!..

If there is a plastic, it was there for shipping. a line goes there. I'm not
familiar enough with that m/c to tell you what line, but you need to find out.
If it has to be plugged you should be using a short bolt of the correct thread
size.
