Hi Carpenter Bob,
Welcome to FTE and the WV chapter.
I saw you down at Frankin's didn't I?
I wanted to stop, but had to pick up the boy that evening.
I am a moderator in the IDI diesel section, I spend two or three hours there almost every evening checking all the post for the day and answering questions.
Most of the different sections here can answer just about any question you can think of relating to a Ford truck.
I don't care what the problem is, someone else on here has seen it before.
Best source on the net for Ford information, one of the reasons I have been here for 6 years.
Two places come to mind,
Lowell Larew out on Route 50 on the east side of Route 92 has a bunch of old trucks, I bet he has 50+ 1975's if he can find them all.
892-4490 is the office number.
My next place to look would be Rasco, but Chris has been getting rid of his older trucks.
Rasco is just off route 50 at Meadland Road a couple miles east of Bridgeport.
739-2776 is office number there.
You guys be nice to Carpenter Bob, he does excellent work on Friday. LMAO
I miss working with you guys, I had a lot of fun at Gabe's last winter.
If you see Scott or Erick, tell them I said Hi.
You guys never knew you were working with an Internet personality (troublemaker) did you?
Where are you all working now?
I am doing a retaining wall in Clarksburg right now, then off to the Plesants Valley exit on 79 to do another one.
Someone from Morgantown built the one off Pleasants Valley because we could not get there fast enough.
They messed it up, now I have to go tear it all down and do it right.
I really like fixing someone elses mistakes.
Joe (msgtg) is going to be mad, another member up north by me.
Jason, I'm in Southern Marion County (Colfax is where I grew up). That's on the Tygart River, just south of Fairmont. Where is Arbovale?
Dave, I called Rasco and he didn't have anything. I will call the other one, Thanks
Scott retired at the end of the Gab's job, Eric is on a job at the University and I am working at the Healthplex Project near the Middletown Mall.
And Joe, I am real, for real, and I love the Hinton area. I will be at Pipestem the first weekend in October for a Moto Guzzi Rally. I have a friend that lives on the hill above the bridge that crosses the Bluestone there at the New. There is a lot of good motorcycleing in that area.
I thought Scott was kidding when he said he was going to retire, guess he was serious.
Ride down to GL Wilson ask for Dave (crazyrednechanyhow) in the door shop.
Sounds like he may have what you need.
Lowell probably has what you need, he is a trip to deal with though.
Do you know what axle that is?
75 as I remember had a straight axle, but I don't remember if it was a Dana 44 or a 60.
Give me a week or two, I will be working right off the Plesants Valley exit in Fairmont.
You may even be able to see me when I get there from the interstate as you go by the off ramp north bound.
I just hope we don't get all the rain the weather guys are talking, work is coming in left and right.
I can't figure out why everyone waits till the last minute in the fall, then want dirt work done before winter.
12 hour days and we are getting farther behind every day.
After you get to the DANA site, search by light axle.
I looked back through the application guide, the earliest F 250 I saw was the 78 F250 Snow fighter which had a Dana 60.
Not many listings at all for 70's model trucks.
I am thinking you should have a 44 straight axle.
When you get to meet Dave, you will know who does any non factory mods to the doors you install.
