I know that this is not exactly the right place, so please excuse me for
the year difference, but today my best friend bought a F series Truck.
The Frame is from a '76, and the body is from a '79..... and it's got
what the guy said as a 360 cu in, the valve covers are marked Mercury...
but he said that it's the same as a 352,390....

Question 1, which Title should he use to title this, the frame or the
cab ?

Question 2...... The brakes act funny, by that I mean, when you press on
them, they go to the floor. You can pump them, build up pressure, and
they work ok, until you go to stop again... then it goes to the floor!
Is it the master cylinder, I bled the brakes? Or could it just be more
air in the lines in the front?

Thankz for any help, his wife'll really appreciate it! Right now she
doesn't like it!

Most EPA/DEQ/state organizations use the engine to date a vehicle.

Pedal goes to floor? builds pressure and loses it? no leaks? Pressuriz=
ed
fluid in master cylinder is leaking past the piston--replace or rebuild i=
t. =

If there aren't puddles of brake fluid, the mc is the only possibility I =
can
think of. =


Gotta be more or better opinions out there.
