    Hi, I have a 1963 f100 that belonged to my uncle. I want to restore it. One thing I don't like is the high gearing it has. It's very hard to creep around in first gear. I want to put a four speed with a granny gear in it. The engine is 223. Do you know what options I have? Thanks

    Your 3 point seatbelt tutorial inspired me to purchase a set from Andover restraints, but my question is how did you find room to install the retractable portion on the floor behind the seat? Did you have to install a new anchor point or were you somehow able to use the existing hole. I have a 1966 F100. you can send me an email directly if you don't want to answer through the site. my email is dringer@witkoinc.com. Thanks dale

    Hello. I want to undertake the three point seat belt install for my '64. Could you tell me where you ended up getting the belts you used (and the backing plate) and what length belts they are? Also, do you have any pics of where you mounted the retractor on the floor? Thank you

    Hey,
    I just saw the thread where you posted how you installed the 3-point seat belts in your truck. Awesome job BTW! Do you mind if I steal the idea so I can put some 3-point belts in my '73 ? Also what website did you get those metal plates from? Thanks for any advice!

    Hi Charlie,
    You may not agree with this suggestion, and if so I understand. The subject regards the yblocksforever site. The group and their information is fantastic, but the SITE doesnt work very well at all. I cant post there now for some reason. Lots of other glitches are being documented by guys who can post. Posting pics is a PITA. So... what about suggesting a new host. Even if it costs more, a little advertising may offset it and properly provide a small amount of reimbursement to Jim and the administraters. Just a thought. I would make the suggestion but like I said, cant post.

    Hey charlie i was wondering i was searching for oil specs on my 312 Y Block & after i got home and was cleaning out my truck i noticed a quart of 20W50 behind the seat im thinking that this is way to heavy of a grade to be run in this engine. I was thinking that more like 10W 30/40 or 5w 20/30the engine is rebuilt & am getting ready to road trip & was going to change the oil before i leave i couldnt find anything in the searches on this any insight would be appreciated Vato2002

    Hello,

    Thanks for the schematic. I have a Ford 4 way flasher switch that I just picked up. If I wanted to use it to activate two rear lamps, that are accessory lamps, do I just connect the hot to the orange/yellow stripe and then the rear lamps to the other conductors?
