Gary, actually tranny pumps can make the exact same noise. I guess it's
just a hydraulic pump noise. Mine does it every once in awhile but I hope=

that if I ignore it hard enough it will go away. =


If you hear the noise and it sounds like it's coming from underneath the
truck and turning the steering wheel doesn't change it it may be the tran=
ny
pump.

Hope this helps,

Does anyone have a '73 to 78 F150 that came with a 460 as original
equipment?

Subject: pilot bearing removal

To Mike: To easily remove pilot bearing and for about 10 cents, select a
straight drift pin that fairly fits into pilot bearing hole, remove it,
fill the cavity with WHEEL BEARING grease, packing it completely, insert
drift and hit sharply with hammer. The hydraulic pressure will force
bearing out undamaged. PS...wear safety goggles in case of splatter. Hope
this helps..Lee Hardy

Subject: 53 F-100

I am new to the list. It has been my dream for sometime to have a 53-56
F-100. I have the chance to buy a 53. It's in pretty sad shape. The current
owner tried to put it on the road about 10 years ago. He put in a motor,
trans, body work, etc. only to see the frame break when he jacked it up to
put on his new wheels & tires. (You would have thought he would have
checked the frame before dumping all that time and money in it.)
Any way my plan is to buy the 53 now, tear it apart and put it in storage
for a couple of years until I come up with some extra cash. I would like to
pick up a wrecked early 90's F150 short bed (hopefully a Lightning) and use
it's frame and running gear.

Has any one out there done this type of project?

Yes, I agree with Mike. This is a method I've used to get bearings
and bushings out of blind holes many times..

Pack the area behind the bearing and the hole in the bearing as full
as possible, try not to leave any air space and drive a snug fitting rod in.
(a cut off pilot shaft from a junk tranny is ideal)
You may have to remove the rod and add more grease once or twice before
the bushing is out.

Hydraulics IS cool...

Yeow! Now that's a cool idea!
I've used the "grease and rod" hydraulic method before, but never
thought about using a grease zerk.
You can get a metric sh!tload of pressure from a good grease gun.
Lots of track tensioners on industrial equipment use a hyd cylinder
with a grease zerk in it.. I've adjusted scores of them.
Never thought about applying it to a blind bearing puller.

Hmmm, maybe You *do* learn something new every day. (-:

You can get a pilot bearing puller from J.C. Whitney for under $20 and it
works like a charm. Simply seat claws(jaws?) of puller behind bearing and
turn handle until bearing comes out. Easy! --

The "tool" I used (Borrowed from a mechanic friend)
was no more than a fitting with heavily tapered fine threads and a zirk in
the center.

Mark,

Sounds like you may have the NP435 4 speed. Does it have a "granny" first
gear?

If so, then you ought to have little trouble finding a bell housing, in fact
there are several in the scraps up here. Look at F250 camper specials, they....
