hello everyone. I just found this great forum and thought i would ask some of you for your expertise. I own a 1962 econoline that i am restoring off and on. I have a couple of questions that i just cant find the answer to.
1. I am looking for a air cleaner assembly, does anyone know a place i can find one or a picture of one would be great.
2. Does anyone know where i can get a suspension lowering kit or the best one i can use.(by best i mean easiest to install.)
3.I am in dyer need of replacing the wiring harness to the whole van. Does anyone know of a place to get one or one that would be easily adaptable. thanks
welllllllllll, lets see here.
air cleaner, there are 2 types, oil bath and paper element. both are pretty much econoline specific because of the size and carb spacing. depends on the carb you have as to which you need. if the carb has a stud sticking up, a paper element is what you want. if it doesnt have a stud, you can still have either one. the papers are a lot smaller than the oil bath, and not near as messy. but an oil bath can be converted to paper with a little bit of work.
there are no lowering kits for 61-67 econolines. most people do an axel flip to get them low, and i do mean lowwwwwwww!
about the only way to replace the wiring harness is with either a good salvage yard find. or with an after market harness that you adapt to fit. the only bad part about the aftermarket harnesses is they wont work with the econo headlite switch, you would have to replace the switch with something else. it is not that hard to do, just need all the parts before you start.
