I like the lists as now. Why? Because I find it interesting and
informative to read what others are doing to their trucks, since the
general theory applies to others of different eras...generally, this
list greatly increases my general knowledge of Ford Trucks, and if I was
on a list geared for my 55 panel, I would miss a lot of stuff.

Subject: RE: Question - Overdrive transmission options

Thanks for all the comments, I've had a dana 60 rear with 5.13 gears at 46"
mud tires, and have slimmed to a dana 37 with 3.54 gears and 30" general
type tires. Personally, mostly looking for the manual trans for fun
installation project and driving enjoyment! Any magic formula out there for
gear set + tire size = X speedo gear?

I am swapping the transmission also. Do I need to swap the output

Subject: RE: Sender unit

This sounds like the power steering control valve assembly. Does it screw onto
the end of the drag link? Does the ball/socket thing go up into the pittman arm?
I built the one for my 1974 Maverick. I would bet that the truck stuff is more
heavy-duty, though.

I went to the junkyard and pulled the old parts off a junker and got the rebuild
kits at NAPA. I seem to remember 3 kits: one seal kit for the power ram, and two
for the power valve: one for the seals, etc. for the actual hydraulic valve, and
one for the ball/stud kit. It was all brand new and included the ball/stud and a
new clamp to hold it in. These wear out and become rather dangerous after
awhile, especially if they aren't kept pumped up with grease.

The same may hold true for the truck as for the Maverick. NAPA had the parts,
but I had to go down there and force them to look real hard in all those books
they have on the counter (the weenies told me on the phone that they couldn't
get the stuff). They had to order the stuff from Arizona or something. I got the
kits, rebuilt the junkyard parts at my leisure, and changed them out in one day.
The whole deal cost me around $60 and one Saturday afternoon.

I hope this helps. If you need any more detail or anything feel free to email.

(non-integral) setup for a 76 4x4 full time F-250?

The worn part is attached ahead of a hydraulic unit with four hoses
connected. It is a ball end fitting into a socket type affair that is the
manual connect for the steering. Ford says no can supply. Any
suggestions would be appreciated.>>

Subject: Sliding doors concept

Well this isnt entirely a ford question but.....There has to be somebody out
there who knows this. In the 60s Chrysler had a concept called the 70-x.
The car had doors had a special hinge called a "parrallelogram hinge". This
hinge allowed for the doors to slide forward rather than swing out( Like a
Mini-van side door but without the unsightly track). I would like to use
this type of hinge on my truck to further customize it and to allow easier
access in tight spots such as a parking lot. If you have any info on this
type of hinge, how it work or where i could find them, please respond. I
thank you for your help.
I also have a second question: Is it legal to put a non computerized engine
in a late-model truck? Like a 70's 460 in a 95 F-series, for example. How
difficult would it be to take out all the computers to prevent systems from
malfunctioning while crossing deep water. Thanks again,

Depends on what state you are in. In Flordia(back in '89 anyway) your
emissions requirements were based on the year of the engine.

It should also be on the right(PS) frame rail just behind the motor and
just in front of the cab. I have seen it also placed on the Left(DS)
frame rail under the bed about in the middle but don't remember what
year truck that was. I had or have, if just having the just the title
and vin plate count, a 58 that has the vin stamped on the front axle.
There are some tags in the engine compartment that might have the vin #.

If the power unit on that 76 is in need of repair you should seriously
consider upgradding to the integral box used from 77-79 or adapting one
of the other Saginaw (sp) boxes used by some of the other manufacturers
during that time. I have a unit (steering box) out of one of those, I'm
not sure which truck it came off of, it could have been a *hevy or a
*odge. A previous owner of the truck put it on. I still have to fix
that mess once I rebuild the front end. The box is tilted from it's
proper angle and ...... back to program.

I have seen some of these in other mid 70's Fords with some sucess.
Proper mounting is critical and some fab. work might need to be done.

Like you said parts are hard to find and as soon as you fix one part or
hose the next will break.

Last time I checked JC Whitney didn't have a web site. Drop me a note if you need their phone number.
