1966 F100 automatic 352 or 390 tried to replace 3131 starter.Flywheel hit nosecone and about 1/8 inch of starter drive. Is there another starter or do I have wrong flywheel.Thank you in advance I'm just trying to fix my friends truck.
Yes the 3 bolts lined up.I'd like to blame starter,but not knowing what motor is or transmission is maybe wrong flexplate.Meaning maybe 352 with 289 flex plate?I can fix it by grinding nose cone and 1/8 inch off starter drive teeth.SO if there is only one 3 bolt starter and only 1 size flexplate I'll try another starter. thank you gentleman for your help.
No flywheel on an automatic. You got a flexplate.
You proboly have the wrong starter. No 390 in 66 Only 352s.
I would take the starter back and make them refund your cash.
My 1966 F100 has this VIN #F10YR802876 which when I decode it means it
has a 360 motor. My son gave me the truck and he says the person that
owned it before him said it had a 360. If it was a transplanted motor would the VIN number be changed?
Just curious as everyone says there are no 360 motors in 1966 F100s
In 1966 the Y would indicate a 352 2V. The 360 was not available from Ford until 1968. If you have a 360 it would have to be a transplant. And, no, your VIN doesn't change if the engine is swapped out.
