HELP!!!!!! >>
That's FMX I believe and was considered a heavy-duty tranny. It is a good
set-
up if you have the small block 351 and this tranny. Someone here will be able
to tell you soon exactly what engine this is. Your mechanic is probably
correct.

Whoops!
I read that as W for small-block. Sorry.

Hello All:

I installed a 9 inch from a 65 F100. My question is if I lower the truck
with reversed eye short & smooth springs & a extended Y hanger do I need to
move the spring pads to get the right pinion angle.

Thanks

Kenneth 55 F100

In response to your stuck piston problem, I had a weekend of unsticking
pistons on my 1956 272 eight piston. All eight were stuck to some degree.
The engine had been setting outside for several years, under the hood,
which obviously did not repel all the water, the oil bath air cleaner had
filled with water, and it ran into the cylinders. We used penetrating oil,
solvent, and a sledge hammer on a long and large punch. After all the rods
were free from the crankshaft, the crankshaft removed, we simply punched
the pistons out with the sledge hammer and big punch by working them from
top for a while, then pounding on them from the bottom. Naturally, all the
pistons are being replaced, we completely ruined them in the process, but
did no damage to the walls. The block is being bored anyway, so the trick
was to not damage the connecting rods. We hammered and sprayed, broke them
loose and kept working until they were all out. Continue to use the wood
as a punch, suggest a good hardwood like oak or hickory, it will come loose
after giving it a punch from top as well as bottom. Good luck Byron in KC
