I have every Ford Truck Parts Catalog from 1928 thru 2001, so I can decode all the VIN info, codes from the Rating/Warranty Plates and the Certification Label first used in 1981.
If you need parts, obsolete or not, I can look up the numbers, then search for them on two online websites to see if anyone has them. Then will post the part numbers, sources that have them.
If the parts are still available, I will list the MSRP and the FTE member discount price offered by sponsor PARTSGUYED.COM (Ed Olson, parts manager of Horizon Ford in Seattle WA).
I've been doing this jazz on FTE since 11/04/2006. And, btw: One of the parts locator sites is only accessible to FoMoCo Dealers.
Hey NumberDummy! I found a guy on craigslist selling a 302 and auto trans out of a '69 Econoline Van. All he could tell me is that the trans is a 3-speed automatic, but didn't know WHICH 3-speed auto it was. I've done some research but can't find specifically if the stock trans with the 302 was a C4, FMX, cruise-o-matic, etc. Can you help??? Thanks!!!
AMAZING! LOL I've followed this post for some time & must now get in on the plethora of knowledge! I created a thread for this but should have realized to come to yours first!!
1990 Ford F700 Bucket Truck
here's the deal:
1990 Ford F700 with the 429 industrial V8 [429-4V], 5speed manual tranny
VIN: 1FDNF77K9LVA49527 (supposedly an invalid VIN at the auto parts stores...but don't laugh, Autozone has been the ONLY place I could get parts. Napa = nothing).
GVWR = 24K
Type GVM: F77240
WB = 171
Axle = 58
Tranny: Eaton-Fuller: TA-677-007103, Made in Brazil....
E9HT7004DA, Model: FS4005, Serial: 86110409
PTO: Chelsea, Dana Corp; Chelsea, Mich.
431X WE WXW 3X6
My #1 goal is to locate a manual - parts, repair, summary, anything remotely related to this truck. My boom lift is a Versalift, obviously separate stuff from the "truck itself". The hydro pump is a Vickers....
I just want to learn about my truck! I won't waste the novel of work done to it thus far. It could be worse though.
I'm not meaning to get ahead of myself, but I'm curious to see if the VIN decoder I used is as accurate as Mr. Bill so I will post here:
1FD - Ford, straight truck, USA
N - manual belts, GVWR 19501 - 26000
F77 - vehicle line F700, vehicle type truck
K - 8 cylinders, gas (Ford engine)
L - 1990 (model year)
V - assembly plant Kentucky
A49527 - production sequence #

The A/T with the 302 in 1969/74 Econolines is a C4
