Soft (blue) loctite is a good sealer too.  Easily removed and has the added
advantage of keeping the bolt or nut tight.  One of the biggest problems I
encounter is external rust that eats away the nut or bolt head so you can't
get a wrench on it.  I wish there were a miracle spray on sealer/paint that
you could spray over oil and grease that would stick and last a while......

4.11's give you 1921 rpm at 60 mph, 4.56 gives you 2131 and 5.14 gives you
2400 at 60.  It depends what you want to do with it.  The 460 has so much
torque you can get away with fairly tall gears.  The lower the gears you use
the more likely you will be breaking axle parts too, it's all a big
compromise.

I run 2.75 on my truck with stock tires and wide ratio C-6 and really like
the performance but with 44's you have a whole nuther smoke.  My setup
calculates out to 1958 at 60 in high gear (1:1).

Go at least 4.56, that is what I have with the same setup (400 vs 460
though). If you are ever planning on going to an auto trans, go 5.13.
Stock 9" and D44 axles will never hold up to 44" rubber offroad. Same
your pennies and get a D60 front and a 10.25 or D70 rear.

I was wondering about this myself?  There are physical limits to what you
can do with stock rockers and springs and if you change the lifters to a
non-stock type it may affect the push rod length or if you also change the
ratio of the rockers this may require a change but most of these changes are
designed to work with stock length push rods AFAIK.  Most people just slap
in adjustable rockers for these alterations when needed.

Actually, in most cases the lifters would adjust for any change in pushrod
length up to the point of rattling rockers so it would either be accomodated
for or you would have to put the old ones back in because the lifters won't
make up the difference.  The hotter cam will open the valves more which is
why you use it in the first place but the stock springs may "coil bind" and
unseat the keepers blowing the engine.....so you "may" need to alter the
springs or valve keepers or both to prevent this.  Some may not understand
this but dual or tripple springs are used for two reasons:

1.. more total pressure.....using.....
2..thinner wire so they can be compressed to a smaller stack for more
movement

I do not know if there is anything great about them.  They do have
approximately 75cc combustion chambers as opposed the later heads that have
approximately 95cc combustion chambers.  This makes it fairly easy to raise
the compression ratio and get maybe another 100HP.  But, it has to be done
with some thought as not to end up with an engine that will run on pump gas.
However, I think the price is extremely good if you have a use for them or
think you can turn them around quickly.

Excessive torque (to the axle) usually results in breakage.  High HP
usually results in premature wear.  So a four wheeler breaks the weakest
part of the axle (usually the axle u-joint or the long side shaft) with the
engine torque multiplied through the tranny and transfer case, while the
high HP Corvette or Cobra wears the teeth off the ring and pinion rather
quickly.  Also remember that while torque is multiplied through the
transmission system (about 5000 ft-lbs in my truck in granny/lo, the HP
remains constant in each gear (we'll say 250-300 HP)  because the increase
in torque is offset by a reduction in RPM output shaft.

Actually, I have a 14 bolt GM rear.  A friend owns a U-Pull and I'm hoping
he'll come across a D60 front end that I can toy with.  I might just go
ahead and try to weld the D44 C bushing mounts to the D60.  This isn't
something I was thinking of till recently, but for what I'm planning on
doing with the truck, it seems to be the way to go.  Do you have a D60 under
one or so of your trucks?

Hey James, where in Jersey do you live?  I'm in Philadelphia and I'd really
like to stop buy some time.  It would be a tiny trek to see a great
collection of 4 '79 Bronco's.  Also, to see how things are done right!  I
seem to be starting a collection of my own...

Hi All,
I looked at the truck this evening and it is in fact the heater core. The truck has planty of heat
the core was leaking so they un-hooked the hoses from the pump and by-passed the heater core. I am
going to change the heater core this weekend. Any advice before I start....


Thanks in advance.

What I've heard is that they have smaller runners, smaller combustion
chambers and decent sized valves, all of which are nice in a low rpm torque
engine.

Many of us would gladly pay $100/set for these.....

Subject: 460 heads
Date: Tue, 26 Sep 2000 03:27:34 GMT

   Okay take a deep breath and say this 3 times fast....
   DzeroVE (1970)heads feature a 10.5:1 compression ratio, 75.8 cc
combustion chamber 2.08/1.66 valves (nothing special) and positive stop
rocker arms and rail type rocker arms. (cast iron and non adjustabe I think)
 If one set of heads has a C9VE cast into it, it's a 1969 head, has has a
sightly smaller cumbustion chamber (73.5cc for 11.3:1 C/R) and larger valves
(2.24/1.725)  These are supposedly CJ, SCJ and Police heads.  Don't quote me
though, this is information that I am copying out of a book that was written
over 20 years ago(You know, the book written by Tom Monroe)  For comparison
purposes, 460 heads with a casting number of D2/D3VE will have a
significantly lower C/R, 8.5:1, D4VE have 8.0:1 C/R and both have stamped
steel non adj. rocker arms.  They have the same valve sizes as the D0VE
head.
    I paid $87.24 ($10 core and $16 for an exchange guarantee) for my set
from a junkyard, and I had to pull them myself.  $100 isn't bad (IMHO) IF he
will swap you out for the other heads if they check out bad at the machine
shop, or give you your $$$ back (you loose out on what it cost you to get
'em checked) then yeah I think it would be a decent price.  If they look
brand new( i.e. he had them rebuilt and never ran them) then yeah it's an
awesome price.  Remeber this though, chances are that you will need to have
the heads gone through (more than likely they are warped)and will possibly
need a complete rebuild or at least a good 3 angle valve job.
     If you dont mind gettin dirty and waiting for a while for a set to
roll around, try out your local junkyards, you might be able to turn up a
set or two for a bit less green and score some other cool stuff while you
are at it.

good hunting.

The choice is really up to you. with most 4x4's it's hard to get the pipe
around the xfer case. This makes the dual "ditch side" look more attractive.
One possible alternative if you want the exit on both sides look is to route
the Pass side pipe over to the drivers side and let the drivers side exhaust
on the pass side. This would keep both approx equal length and avoid the
hassles getting the pipe around the drivers side xfer case.

Dawn this is kinda off the list info but try www.dialpad.com if you have a
good enough processor you can make long distance calls anywhere in the
united states for FREE. No charge to you, just some annoying tickers but if
you can ignore them , hey free phone calls are great, I use it to call my
parents in Oregon from Alaska, and A cobra driving in portland traffic is
NUTS! ! ! ! ! ! I have driven that traffic lots of times before I moved up
here in 98 and I tell ya I wouldnt want a nice car in that traffic specially
on i5 or even i84 for that matter good luck to ya,
Keith
71 F250 4wd ( I FOUND THE DONOR PARTS TRUCK FOR THE POWER STEERING AND GOT
THE PARTS FOR FREE! ! ! ! !)

>
>Thanks everyone for all the information, and I do have a haynes or chilton
its out in the truck at the moment so I'm not sure which it is.  I do know
somethings but I'm still just learning. . . I didn't have a father around
all the time to teach me.  And at that point in my life I was more
interested in working at making money than working on cars anyway.  (Typical
teenage girl)
>
>Apparently the guy that had this truck did a few alterations (Tom said
something about changing the electronic ignition to points) but he got that
worked out. . . like I said to begin with this was an oops truck. . . If I'd
a known that Tom hadn't checked it out and didn't want me to bid on it I
wouldn't have. . . at least not without checking it out myself, in which
case I wouldn't have with all we could see wrong with it after the auction,
but after I won the auction I had no choice.
>
>I do have another running vehicle (I'm driving Tom's Shelby Charger around
Portland and St. Helens) but Tom has a job interview at the end of the week
for a job in Colorado Springs and if he gets it they said they want the
position filled last month so we'll have to move rather quickly (within say
two weeks being generous).  I need the truck able to tow the Charger to
Colorado.  Tom will drive out the Shadow and take the bus back and then use
the Moving truck to tow the Porsche.
>
>It won't be so hectic after the end of the week we'll more than likely know
by Monday if we have to move.  If we don't I can slowly work on the truck;
clean out the garage and try to move it in there (if it will fit even
cleaned out <G>).
>
>Tom knows what he's doing mechanically and electrically, the problem is
with his hours there is no daylight left to work on the vehicles. . . I've
done more mechanical work in the last three months on the vehicles than I
have in the nearly 12 years we've been married. <G>
>
>Sorry I'm being so full of questions but Y'all often have better ways than
the Manuals that are just as good but take less time and more ingenuity. . .
its from experience. . . If I could afford the phone calls I'd be calling
Tom's and My Dads.  But they each live in different states and neither use
email but maybe twice a month.
>
>Thanks again for all the help and sorry this is so long, unless the Truck
tries to explode on me I'll just lurk for a while.
>
>And maybe with the next bonus I can get that service manual.  This bonus is
almost gone <G>I wonder why.
