Question vin decode? and other stuff

can someone help me decode my vin plate? i just got her. she's a 1966 falcon club wagon. the guy i got her from said that when he parked it before winter, it would go forward and reverse, but after it sat for a couple months, it only has reverse. when i checked the trans fluid , the dip stick said to use motor oil only? i think some one has put the wrong dip stick in it at some time. so i don't know if it needs fluid or not? or if it's overfull! what model of auto trans did they put in these vans? does it have a replacable filter? how much fluid should it hold, if you don't mess with the torque converter. sorry for all the questions. any respones will be greatly appreciated

hey widbill, i will get it as soon as possible. i am having severe yahoo trouble, and cant get to my secret decoder ring.

you definetly have the wrong tranny dipstick! do not put motor oil in the tranny! [mabey thats why it will only back up now,]

the trannies are supposed to be c4's, if it is hung from the top at the mount, it is an econoline tranny. if it has a crossmember rigged up under the mount it is not an econoline tranny, and could be any ford tranny.

if you change just the screen and dont drain the torque it will hold 4-6 quarts.
if it wont even try to move forward, get some lucas trans treatment before you do anything else and try that.

My very limited knowledge of Econo VINs tells me that this is an Econoline (E) and that it has (or had) a 240 (A)

Don English at SEQ (?? Econoline Quarterly) can do a decode for you. You can find him at the OldEconolines group on Yahoo

Welcome to FTE

E14 = E100 Van

A = 240 1V (no 300 engines in Econolines till 1969).

H = Lorain Ohio Assembly Plant

A57497 = 1967 (1967 Econoline serial number range: A00,001 thru B99,999).

90 = 90" Wheelbase

Paint Code B = Harbor Blue

E141 = Van

289: 2 = Medium Blue Crush Vinyl & Medium Blue Matchstick Pattern Vinyl / 89 = Body Style 89A Standard Van.

Transmission Code: C = Ford Type 3.03 3 Speed Manual all Syncromesh Transmission.

Rear Axle Code: 11 = Ford 9" WCR / 3.50-1 / non Limited Slip / 3050 lb. Rear Axle Capacity.

04350 = 4350 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

129 HP @ 4000 RPM

74 = Seattle WA Ford District Sales Zone Office, where the original selling dealer ordered the vehicle from.

I separated some of the codes you posted...sorry I was late decoding the info.

Welcome to FTE

I'm not sure what you are asking for. Since I don't speak Italian, la scheda technica appears to me to be: the scheduled technical (Factory Shop) manual.

If this is correct, helminc.com should have what you need. They have other manuals as well.

An Econoline is not a car, it's considered a truck.

IFD / E / E14 / N / 3 / K / H / A62452

1FD = Manufactured by Ford Motor Co. in the USA, as an in-complete vehicle.

E = Hydraulic Brakes / 6,001-7,000 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

E14 = Econoline E150 Cargo Van as a rolling chassis or as a cut-away.

N = 5.0L V8 EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection).

3 = Check digit, FoMoCo use only.

K = 1989.

H = Lorain, Ohio Assembly Plant.

A62452 = 1989 Numerical Sequence of Assembly, the Econoline's specific serial number.

In-complete vehicle: The Econoline was sold as a rolling chassis with no body installed, or as a cut-away.

Econoline Cut-Away. The body is cut off (away) behind the front seats, then a Motor Home body, or van body (or?) is installed by an outside body maker.

You must have a Motor Home. Since Ford had nothing to do with it, you'll have to contact the manufacturer for certain details like KW (kilowatts) / CV (whatever that refers to).

Most of the other info can be gotten directly from Ford Motor Co.

Contact Ford Motor Co. in Dearborn Michigan (all I have is the toll free 800 number that won't work from Festung Europa), pass along the VIN, and ask for a copy of the original build sheet...it's free.

You might have to pay the postage to Italy, but that won't cost much as it will be inserted into a simple envelop.
