Hi Mike

> I belive the spacer is for the EGR. Its a California truck and CA
>law starts at '68.

The thing is EGR is used as an anti-knock by adding exhaust gases. I save
myself a beating for my ignorance and just say others will give you a better
discription, but it is nessisary and nothing positive comes from removing
it. PCV is another device nessisary for longjevity and proper operation by
removing pressure from the crank case. My trucks vacuum lines were less than
FBB (I made it up). Not only did they need replacing they were wrong. I got
it off a small car lot and they just stuck hoses on fittings. I tryed to
find documentation on the proper way to install them. Finaly I got a Hayes
manual on on emissions and came up with my own. It meets everything that is
requierd for my truck.

> What kind of electronic ignition did you use? From what?

'77 Mercury with a 302. I don't know the difference but after Gary said I'd
mixed things up and needed to figure out what sparkplug to use, I found
there are differences. Being a perfectionist I put the same thing Steve D.
uses! :)

> I hang my head in shame, they were chevy..;(

No sweat! I have a Buick, I not proud of it, but I have one. I meant "Been
there, done that"!

I would try to find a hardwood that I could afford or just cheap wood and
cover it with an aluminum sheet. I have read where people have put a couple
K in restoring a bed. It's cool just not me!

Don't tell any of these die hard Ford guys but I say Stepside! Flairside
sounds a little "De La Fem", if you know what I mean! ;)

You can't go wrong with Dave's advice Mike!

Dave, Do you have anything the way it came from the factory? Your like the
Tim Taylor that can! :) RRrrr

Good Luck!

Subject: bag 'o fluid

Greetings. I need to install a washer fluid reservoir on my '67 (it's tha=
t
time of year). I would like to get the original bag just to be a purist,
but I am wondering if there are any advantages to ripping a plastic box o=

a junker instead. Are there any bag owners out there who have experienced=

any problems with this particular device? =


Thanks in advance,

Subject: 65 Merc. P-U

I am in the process of buying a 65' Mercury P-U, I want to try to find
what trans. went in these (as well as anything else you can tell me).
Here's the info: 1965 Merc., P-U, short box, half ton, posi, 240 I-6.
I'm guessing it to be a NP435 or a T-18/98.

Subject: Transmissions

How do I find out about Ford Transmissions (types, years, ratios (&
syncro), avalable in...)
Example- T-18/T-98 when did they start making these, what first gear
ratio and did it have a first gear syncro's, were these only in trucks?
I feel it's a long shot but what ever you got will help.
