Hi from Redmond

Glad to be a part of your group! I've been playing with 65-66 F100s for years. I currenrly have a 65 LWB Rat Rod truck with PW, PDL/alarm, PS, 390/C6, and custom interior. I also have a 65 LWB with what looks to be the original 352/3sp combo and all original inside (needs restored, but runs and drives). I have a 71 SNB that I'm thinking of swapping the cab with a 65 and a 66 LWB parts truck. Throw in a 75 parts truck and a 76 supercab parts truck and you have what me wife calls the Ford picket fence! Anyway, thanks for the welcome and let me know if you need any parts, I might have it.

Steve

Always good to know where parts for our old fords are! I've got 2 65's I'm parting out now, and have piles of 67-72 Pickup parts. I'm partial to the 67's. I've got 3, A 67 shortbed F-100 with a 460/C6. (scary fun!), a 67F-100, and a 67 F250.

All in all I think my son and I have about 30 old Fords, and a very understanding wife!

30!! I thought my wife was pretty good when I had 8! My son has a 65 SWB also, but it lives at his house.

Ya, pretty cold here. There are reports of a lot of power outages to the west of us, all the way to Black Butte Ranch! Not a good time to be without power! So far so good here.

It helps when ya live on 3,000 acres waaaaay out in the boonies

I only have 2 neighbors, one is 4 miles SE, and the other is 7 miles NW of me...................

We've only had 1 power outage in the last 2 years for about 8 hours ( but it was -13 at the time). I have a 5KW genset in my shop that I can redirect to the house, plus I have a 2KW inverter in my service truck, and I can always use the fireplace for heat.

I'm looking for a 20KW diesel genset that will run the whole place, and I can run it on my $1/gal biodiesel!

3000 acres does help! I heard this cold snap is headed east, but it sounds like you are ready for it.

I've been able to slack off for the last couple of weeks, but monday I get to go to another farm shop and finish the engine rebuild on a D6D, then I have a couple of 13 speeds to rebuild for a local trucking co. At least it's all in well heated shops...................

A little rant with long explanation (maybe)

I met a young man this last summer at a car event. We hit it off pretty well since his project is a Y powered 46 pickup. Over the next few months found out he had a standard bore 292 bare block. I wanted one, so made a deal for $50 and one of my 292 BB .080 OS. I would deliver and pickup. Address was 50 miles up I 5. Sent the check 4 weeks ago and made the trip today to do the exchange.

My objective was to get a block that didnt need much but boring and decking and which would accept 40 over pistons that are on hand. I have one block with 7 standard holes and one 40 over but didnt want to have to sleeve it.

So I get up there and immediately see the broken head bolt. A bad surprise. Close to the deck so welding a nut will probably not work. Then he showed me a piston that came out of it and put a tape measure on its top to point out it was a standard. I was thinking OMG. Scraped away the carbon on top of the piston and it was 20 over.

Brought the 20 over home and if I cant get that head bolt out will end up having a sleeve put into the other engine.

So what is the deal? I wouldnt do something like that to a stranger much less someone I had more than a strangers relationship with. Some of the experience may be chalked up to inexperience, but not the head bolt.

Damn, this was supposed to be a new thread. Sorry about that.

Some peoples children................................Hope you got your cash back.


My son (30 and should know better!) bought a "rebuilt" 292 a couple of years ago when I was working for a gold mining co in Montana. Paid $500 cash for it. I get home and he's bragging about his "great deal" . Engine looked great, new gaskets, fresh paint, not to bad! So I told him let's run a compression test before we put it in his Uni. 60psi was the BEST cylinder.

Pulled it down and found new rings (on cyl that were 30 over + .0012 wear), new bearings ( 20 under and worn bad) Eaxust valves pocketed 1/4 inch, and it was a 272!


Of course the guy refused to give him back his cash! It's a sad world........................

Allen, thanks for the welcome. My son has a 65 SWB that he is working on also. I have pics of my interior posted in my album, but it didn't load the pic of the exterior for some reason. The exterior is not very exciting, just basic flat dark grey rat rod paint. Didn't do the fancy pin striping or anything. My first 65 I had for 26 years. My son and I redid it when he was in high school, lowered, with brand new shiny black paint! Then everybody thought it should be theirs! This one just looks like an old Ford until you look closer. Not having people trying to buy it all the time, so I can actually enjoy it!

Steve
