Try this...

Go to Photobucket.com and sign up for a free account. Then create an album for your truck. Upload any pics you want to post on FTE to that album. Have this album open on your computer when you want to post pics on FTE.

While you're making a post on FTE, select the pic you want to post from your Photobucket album. When the large version of the pic is open, right mouse click on it and select "View Image Info". The image info will be highlighted and will look something like this:
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...ghtsafter1.jpg

Copy that highlighted info (right click / copy).

When you have the spot in your post where you want the pic to be placed, select the "Insert Image" icon at the top of the post (looks like a mountain) and paste (right click / paste) the image info you copied in the highlighted box (just shows "http://" when it opens).

Your pic will be placed in the post.

Hope that helps.

Actually, when you right click, instead of clicking on "view image info" you can simply click on "copy link location" and then use the "insert image" icon.

You guys treat newbies very well...Thank-You!!!

I got sooo many questions that my brain is hurting.
but one at a time.
I seemed to have difficulty posting pictures and required help getting them on here. The current pictures are on photobucket and not on my computer, I couldnt build an album because it required me to browse my computer and they aren't there. Used that picture icon in my first post and copied in the location and that didn't work....HELP!

AND a more technical question.
upon disassembling the rod bearings I was hoping to find an indication of what was in there currently like "STD" for standard but this is what I found.
2 65
FM
FORD (in script)
0BA62110


I searched the web for the numbers but didn't find anything that said whether they were standard, oversize, undersize i will probably just have to run the mic when it gets warmer.
............Thanks Roger
Roger, don't feel pressured to go beyond your means to get the truck ready for June. We have another meet, Truckfest scheduled in Sept. in Wisconsin, and if that's to far we're working on next years Truckstock in northern Tennessee for September 2015.

Regarding the bearing, you might want to recheck that last number, it should be 0BA6211 then followed by a letter. Could that 0 actually be a C or a D?
Here is the chart

harleymsn,
You are spot-on...
Got off work, read your post and went to the barn to triple check as I had pulled 2 of the bearings prior, and was sure that that last one was a O.
NOPE it's a "C" just as you had suggested

.also took the mic to all the journals and the bores and this is what I got.

at least they are all consistent.
what do you think of the wear on the old bearing?.
It looks like minimal wear to me???
Was thinking of replacing with new bearings of the same size.
What is your suggestion or thoughts???

Thoughts? Plasti gauge time. This will give you total clearance between the insert and crank journals.

Plastigauge is so cheap and quick, try it on what you have. You may find clearance well within specs. But, then again, new bearings are relatively cheap and you do have it torn down.

Edit: Those Ford bearings may well be superior to any off shore replacement.

Thanks for keeping me in line,,,,,I know just enough to be dangerous

I will also add my welcome Roger. Looks like you got the better end of the cement mixer trade deal for sure. Whats the story with the stack of nos bias ply traction tires stacked up on the flatbed? What size are those? Wanna trade?

He threw in 6 brand new 7.50 x 20 tires and rim liners with it.
As I said he reeeeally wanted that mixer.
Not interested in a trade at this point,,, tooo many other things to do before I get to checkin those stupid widowmakers and possible replacements.
Gotta wonder Ifn someone else was scared of the rims and that's why they were included but NOT installed.

Now what???

OK, engine block is spotless,,I cleaned,cleaned and cleaned some more.
De-ringed and cleaned the pistons and grooves,,lotsa stuck rings.
Now the problem.........
Many of the cylinders are pitted to the point that a hone will not clean them up. The block is already bored 060. I guess the next step is to either bore it to 080, slap it together like it is and see what happens,find a new block, or rod it with a new drive line. I feel the truck is tooo complete and in tooo good of shape to Rod it, and I really want to hear the sound of the flatty.
HELP!!!
Your thoughts, suggestions, and prodding are needed in this decision!!!!
Anyone got any 080 pistons for cheap???

On a side note,,while in the barn I fabricated a electrolysis degrease and derust tank... I love the fact that this thing is working on my parts while I am working on something else... and I might add that 60 volts @ 31 amps makes quick work of the process YEEEEHAAAAW

.....Roger
