    Hello Mr. 77&79F250. Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for the directions to billavista. Unbelievable resource there! I've spent the last several hours sifting through some of Mr. Ansell's tech articles. Really starting to figure out what is underneath my truck and the direction I'm going to take my drivetrain in. Thanks again and I'll definately be in touch. Have great day.

    Info for Mac J-4th gen is 61-66, 5th gen is 67-72, I am all about a (none high boy) 6th gen 73-79. With the 78/79 being the best of the best IMO. Both p/s (newer p/s design) and p/b with front disk. C-6 auto or the NP-435 manual are tough transmission, standard is cheaper to do self repair work on.

    Work on getting your Pm (private message) option going with 10 thread post's/replies and then you should have that ability. That way we can PM, besides there is a 1000 text limit on here. I know it takes a bit to figure out the system on here. I have more input and answers to your questions.

    Ok, I'll start w/ basic questions. Looking at 4th and 5th gen trucks. Need one to leave at my cabin in the mountains. No show winners, but I need good brakes, dependable starting, and a good heater. Leaning 5th due to power steering and brakes. Prefer manual to autos, but will take either. LIKE the look of the "Highboys" a LOT.
    1) what are some common pitfalls with the 73-77s that I should be aware of?
    2) are there features that I'll have to pay a premium for that are not really necessary; e.g. high vs. low pinion, Dana 60s f/r vs. 44s, 460 engine?
    3) I've driven a '79 flatbed in my distant youth. Crew cab. 351M engine. That thing was a HUGE dog! No power and sucked gas. What engine(s) would you recommend I look for and look to avoid?
    4) If parts are swapped, e.g. a '76 body onto a '77 chassis, any particular gotchas?
    5) Finally, what questions SHOULD I be asking you? And any sellers that I encounter.

    Thanks!

    That's as vague as can be, sorry. Hope they make sense.

    Welcome to FTE Mac...yea I like ol Ford trucks, but there are a ton of folks in the 73-79 forum that are just as smart, if not even smarter. No problem with helping you out, ask what ever, we will get you lined out.

    Hello. Brand new here. You seem to have amazing knowledge (and passion) about the mid-70s F250s. I'm in the market and have a few questions. Would you mind helping me out? My name is Mac and I live in Longmont, CO. Thanks for your time.
