The wire feed (if large enough) can weld most of your projects as
well as a stick and generally is easier to use and make a good weld
with (for inexperienced welders). I've used heli-arc, wire and stick
as well as gas and must say I like the wire for most applications
including and especially body work (no good at it but can see the
advantages) and vertical welds (no good at that either)

You need at least 120 amps, 20% duty cycle for moderate all
around auto projects and probably less for strictly body work with
.030 or smaller wire. I use .035 but I weld heavier stuff most of
the time and take my time with the sheet metal. When I get my new
hose assy. I think I will be going to a smaller wire since it will
weld big stuff as well. Mine is 240 v 160 amp Dip/Stick with TIG
capability if I buy the parts for it and I like it very much.

Subject: Brakes....

I haven't followed this thread very closely so if this has
already been suggested then please ignore it.

First, if the entire brake system has been "rebuilt", including
the calipers, and standing on it will not make the wheels
lock then I suggest the following....

Take off the master cylinder, pull out the push-rod from the
vacuum booster and adjust it. This item can "screw-in" after
several years and thereby reduce the amount of "usuable"
peddle travel, ie. the first inch of peddle movement becomes
ineffective.

I haven't delved into it yet but my NP435 vibrates in third and
second as well but not so much in high. My throw out bearing is bad
and I suspect the imput shaft bearings are bad as well but I suspect
a lot of the vibration is transmitted through the chasis (since the
entire drive train is cast iron and steel) from tires, drive shafts,
worn differential gears, engine accessories, transfer case backlash
and finally the transmission itself so I'm not convinced yet the
tranny is really the biggest contributor. In fact the transfer case
could be transmitting most of the vibration since mine feels similar
in all gears but worse in third I think. I can "feel" some mis-match
in the gears somewhere too I think like loose bearings in one of the
clusters or something but can't be sure till I tear it down.

Subject: Re: C6 Noise

Have you checked the pinion bearings in your rear end? When one of
those is about to go it will also make one of those high pitched
noises. Find a good hill or flat area and drop it into Neeutral and
coast. If the pitch gets hight as you speed up or lower as you slow
down it will be much more noticeable with the engine noise reduced.

Subject: Where is T-18 Backup light Switch?

Hi all.

I have a 73 F250, 360 with a T-18 4 sp. Can anyone tell me where the
backup light switch is located? I spent a lot of time on the ground under
the truck (no lift available) and can't seem to find it. No wires lead to
trans now, so I can't follow the wire to find it (the B/U lights don't
work, and that may be why...) Should it be reachable from below or do I
have to remove the access plate in the Cab floor to see it?

Thanks in advance!
Joe

Kenneth: That is certainly worth trying although there was no
difference between the old master cylinder and the new one when I
changed it. I am more interested in the fact that a previous gentleman
suggested that there is a unique master cylinder for an F350 that has a
larger piston than a F250. This sounds like what I need but I sent a
response asking if there is a way to identify the two different master
cylinders.

Thanks for your suggestion

Joe,

On the automatic transmission equipped versions of these trucks from =
around 1973 to early 1977 I believe the back up switch and neutral =
safety start switch is located on the steering column inside the cab =
near the floorboard. I think the backup switch on the NP 435 simply =
plugs into the transmission. I am not sure about the T-18 though. If =
it was my truck I would check the column first and then check the =
transmission. =20

What you're seeing is a binary (mime) attachment from people who
use MS Exchange, Explorer or Netscape and use special fonts or
colors. Its not viewable, and its not appreciated. It only increases
the size of digests with useless fluff. I've been trying to
let people know about this as I see it.

Everyone: Do not use special fonts, colors in your emails (or in the
signatures). This stuff is not yet standardized and just increases
bandwidth and the size of our archives.

Subject: Online Engine Parts Catalogs

Yo Motorheads:

I was surfin' the 'net the other day and I found the following commercial
web site to be both fun and informative.

Accelerated Motion Performance Products
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.amotion.com

They have online catalogs for three separate Ford engine families

Small block engines '62-'94 221, 255, 260, 289, 302(5.0), & 351W(5.8 )
Cleveland and Modified (335 series) '70-'82 351C, 351M, 400
Big Block '68-'94 370, 429, 460

(These are their descriptions, not mine. What's a big block 370? Never
heard o' that one.)

It looks like they plan on adding catalogs for the I6 (240, 300), V6
(232/3.8), and FE families eventually.

Being into M-blocks, I checked that particular catalog out, and I was
impressed. It's almost like a Summit catalog, but with tables and specs
only, no pictures. Even better, it's kind of cool to see what's available
for your motor without having to wade through pages of irrelevant Ch*vy or
M*par stuff. (According to the web site, they have no paper catalog, but
if you have a printer, you can print the web pages out.)

My Disclaimer:
I have never dealt w/ this company, nor do I know anyone who works for this
company, including me. I have no idea how reliable they are or what the
quality or level of their service is. I just found their web site to be
interesting.

Apparently, they are based in Burnaby BC, so maybe one of our Canadian list
members would know something more about them or their reputation. Anyone
out there dealt w/ them?

In 73, its on the steering column in the cab just about 2 inches from the
firewall. The switch fits a tab on the shifter rod. The tab is bad about
breaking. Take the switch off and have some one move the shifter while you
feel the tab. Don't get pinched.

I had to purchase a timing cover for my 1974 302 and I had to pay
$89.95. Yes that is a good price.

Well, I bought the cover. $80.00 with tax.
I had to grind off the bracket for an optical sensor.
It looks good though. If anyone needs one let me know. It's only $3.00 for
priority mail!
