Subject: 66 side trim or suggestions?

I have asked a few times about side trim for a 66 f-100 long bed. I am re-
painting this weekend and I either need the trim or some suggestions since I
am two toning back to the original colors. Thanks.

Subject: Cam selection and F500

I do no think this went through the first time so I am resubmitting it

I need help picking a cam for the 351C that I am rebuilding. Its going in
my daily driver F100 so I need something that will offer more torque. I
have been looking in the PAW catalog and crower makes a cam that sounds
about right. Its called the BAJA Beast and is designed for "stump pulling
power and torque...1200 to 3800 RPM."
The specs are:
Lobe Center 112 Deg.
Duration: Advert. Int 258 deg. exh 264 deg.
Duration: .50 Int 200 deg. exh. 210 deg.
Lift : int .477" exh .486"

Does this cam sound right?

Also for those who are interested in the F500 saga: We got it home
sunday. We left Raleigh at 7:15 sunday morning arrived at our destination
in Maryland at 11:30. Loading it up on the trailer and chaining it down
took an hour. Started back at 12:30. Arrived at my wife's uncle's farm
outside Raleigh at 5:30. Rolled it off the trailer and breathed a big
sigh of relief. What a day!

The whole trip cost $70 in fuel too.

Then of course you can open your PAW catalog and buy an SVO 385 block for
less than an average 427 bare block that will take a 4.625 bore and a five
inch stroke taking you out to 672 cubic inches. Cast iron block - $1775.
For about half of what DOVE wants for a mild FE, you can be running an
honest 650+ hp on pump gas.

The only reason to run an FE is because you love it, and that, IMHO is

Don't start no HP war cause where the FE ends, the 385 is only warming up.
BTW, 500+ is available with STOCK heads, block, crank and rods - without
needing to enrich Jim Dove.

Subject: 73-79 F-100 swaps

Would anyone have a list or database of what parts can be swaped within the
F series pickup`s. I know that a windshield from a 73 F-250 fit my 74 F-100
was wondering what other parts could also be swapped. Would anyone also know
where one could find pictures of the above pickups "73-79 F-series all"

I've been unable to find anything about PAW, except relating to bears or
Is it similar to the dreaded Summit Racing? I was wondering if PAW had a

The t98 has a 4.87" diameter bearing retainer (per Advance Adapters).
Would you mind checking the one that you have?
The next issue would be a pilot bearing that fit the input shaft of the
transmission. I haven't looked into that yet (my initial thoughts are that
this shouldn't be too difficult to resolve. I was told by a transmission
guy here in St. Louis that the T18 had a smaller bearing retainer. Not too
many people had a clue when I mentioned t98.

I would appreciate your help.

Well it's good to see the Karma Dog was happy with you! Bet after the
accident, you thought no one would call you lucky! :) Good luck getting
the other two home.

PAW is short for Perfomance Automotive Warehouse. It is located in Southern
California. I am unaware of any type of Website they may have, but their
number is 1-818-998-6000
