I never found any in glass. I did find new ones from "No Limit" steel were
about $300.00 aluminum was a little higher. I did find a good used set from a
guy in Hemmings (sp?) He has an ad all the time I can't find it right he's in
MO. I did find out that their is a difference in straight six and v-8 the
straight six ones are longer. They can be cut down with a little work.

Hello to all,
Thanks to everyone who answered my last questions on my lifter problem. Now I have another question. My truck seems to be running rich. Not so much at idle, but
under acceleration. It bucks and never seems to develop enough power. The plugs are very sooty which is very black but not greasy or oily. I checked the ignition and that seems ok. I took apart the carb and found a round gasket missing under the
nozzle for the accelerator pump so it was pumping too much gas in that circuit.
I also found it had number 58 jets in it. I looked in the manual for a 52 and it said
51 size belongs in the 239. I have a mercury motor 8cm in the truck. Does anyone
know what size jets go in this motor> Its a 94 carb
Thanks
Bill

Te last  Holley 94 carb I rebuilt (239 from a 51 Ford Truck) had .049's in
it. The 49 to 53 Mercury(car) had a different style carb, it was a side
draft configuration and didn't work very well.
Hope this helps

For a 239 engine, #51 jets are standard for sea level operation to 5,000
feet. From 5,000 to 10,000 feet, use #49.  Above 10,000, feet use # 47.

This is sraight from the factory manual.

A friend bought a 53 Lincoln and asked me to look up sites on Web. Haven't found many, even checking Ford sites. Anyone know of any including lists? I have found the Y-block and flathead sites. Thanks, sorry no truck content.

Subject: Withdrawal


I took Grover to the shop yesterday, and now I am suffereing
withdrawal. I always do my own mechanickin', so it just doesn't seem
right to see the driveway empty where my truck ought to be! Of course,
if they fix it right, Glenn, I just might have Grover in PF this year.
I'm a little concerned about an engine noise, but it may not be a big
problem. BY the way, Glenn, I am indeed still teaching. My current
students are 3 from different regions of China, one from Korea, another
from Japan, a Hungarian, a Mexica, and an attractive young lady from the
Czech Republic. I'm teaching them all to speak English just like me! ;-)
Gary, I hear you on the house thing! Ol' Grover is going to be hauling
his share of building material this year. But then, that's one reason
why I bought a truck.

And the main reason I want a 70's F-350 or 48 F-4.  I hate driving 35 mph
with 2 tons of stone in the back...........:-(  I'd like to drive 70 with 3
tons of stone in the back :-)  One thing about having a stone driveway, you
will always need a truck to haul some stone to keep it up :-)  I would
dearly love to have a 48, 4x4 in the heavier size like the F-4 or even an
F-3 but 4x4's in the older trucks are very rare out there so I may have to
find a good deal on a 48 with a decent body and stick in on a newer chassis
or add the 4x4 to it.  I simply like the 48 body style and grill.  I
actually like the 40 grill better but I believe in being practical :-)  48's
are fairly common yet and popular enough to get parts for :-)
