    Just so you know Mike it looks to be running at about 30 degrees out. I did think the linkage on the acc. Pump should be set closer in the hole settings thanks for the heads up. I'll set it back to the outter. I'm sure she needs all the fuel! Lol!!

    Mike thanks for the information! Managed to make some changes in my situation with the starting. Went with electronic ignition per Tronics I believe is the unit made a big difference and a little hotter coil. The truck has become pretty reliable at starting two pumps to pedal turn the ignition and it starts but I have been reading the site up quite a bit. . Saves me from posting a lot of stupid help me questions. Been readingsite for other previous issues that have occurred with other trucks. Right now I'm researching problem with timing. I was told 8 to 10° off and if it doesn't want to adjust to that that it could very well be that I need to check top dead center the number one cylinder and or perhaps the timing chain could have jumped gears. It certainly doesn't like being set to that location. From the previous thread I did see also to check vacuum hose to carb.Thanks Mike

    Hey Mike your a busy guy on the site! I have the 73 f-350 super camper. Thought I would pick your brain a bit. Got it running today, when I accelerate the motor starves out. Have to feather it to increase Rpms. I do have a rebuilt carburetor. Checked timing seems good. Could the needle jets on the bottom of the carb be set to lean? 360cui stock 2v carb? Thanks Eric.

    Mike I sent you an email a few days ago on my ongoing problem with voltage drop at key side of coil. If you did not get it I can just send you a private message. Thanks WW2N

    Mike, Hope you can help, you seem to be the ford expert on this site. I have a 1974 f250 camper special 2wd, regular cab and need front coil springs. It has a 390 auto transmission and AC. 8100 GVWR and 3170 front WR listed on the door plate and door jam sticker. It seems to have the heavy duty/tall spring perches. I purchased springs for a 1976 f250 with 8100 gvwr from NPD but they are a little too tall (tires are turned in) and the bottom coil hits the I beam where it turns up. Do you know where I can get a set of springs to fit this? I do not want additional lift or drop stock ride level is fine. Thanks, Steven smamotorman@Hotmail.com

    I'm in Polk City, with a '91 standard cab, long-bed XLT 4x4 that I think needs a cab transplant. There's so much rust that one shop I asked about it said it was beyond repair, and to just replace the cab. That's well beyond by age and capabilty at this point; I see you've done that, or had it done. Any recommendations for a shop that might want to take on this project? Alternative is to replace the truck, which probably makes more sense, but I thought I'd look at all the options.

    I got a good one. Old, but seemingly not known to many, even Bruin Cable cannot locate any real data on my 137 inch dually Ford F350, a 1974. I need to know the dimensions of the front and rear brake cables as it seems that the list available is not for the 137 inch but only for the 136 inch wheel base. I would love to be able to post the truth on this truck as it must be one rare truck not to have any diagrams or cable numbers for it. Am i right or wrong?

    Good day sir. Need a favor. I am in need of a parts illustration for my son's front axle. It seems the master parts catalog I purchased is missing a couple of pages and well they are the ones I need. It is for a 79 F150 4x4 with a 351m. Not sure exactly what the axle is but it is a Dana 44 I believe, open knuckle with disk brakes. It does not have anything that bolts to the top such as a steering arm or ball joints. We have some of the parts but need to get the rest of them. Thanks for your time.
