I spent the day diagnosing the severe misfire and stumble on my 351w. Looks like a blown head gasket!

I've been doing some research on transfer case shift levers. I know I said earlier that my 1982 shift lever would be fine, but I knew that wouldn't last.

It appears there were at least three different transfer case shifters used between 1980 and 1986.

1. Most commonly found on 1980-1981 trucks, but found in later years as well, or at least a similar shaped lever. Angled at about 35 degrees.

2. The one I have, angled at about 80 degrees. Seems to be used from 1982-1986, most commonly in Broncos.

3. The third one was used alongside trucks and Broncos equipped with the SROD transmission.

No part/engineering numbers? I could probably look the up in the catalog tomorrow night, after going to see Dad. Interested? That should tell us how many variations there were.

I am very interested.

I cleaned my lever up, but I couldn't find anything on it. The paint on it is quite thick though, so maybe I'll scrape some paint off and see what I can find.

Interesting. If I'm reading that listing right, there were four possible transfer case shifters that could be had with a C6 from 1980-1986.

However, there isn't a clear indication of what is included in the "Lever Assembly". Does that mean just the lever, or does that mean from the lever all the way to the transfer case bracket? If it means all the way to the transfer case bracket, the difference between E0TZ-7210-M and E1TZ-7210-B may actually not be in the lever itself, but the linkage after the lever, or the bracket on the transfer case.

All I know is that my lever isn't like all the ones I've seen in the 1980-1981 trucks, and it's more than likely E2TZ-7210-B.

So heres a pic of the assembly. It looks to be the shift lever is the 7210 part number. The 7B051 rod could vary. Not in your case tho.

So, in conclusion, you have the correct rod already, but need the lever E0TZ-7210-M. Green Sales has 2.

EDIT! There are seperate numbers, as seen below.

Thanks for the info!

I guess I'll keep my eyes open for E0TZ-7210-M.

Not today, but this past weekend, I replaced the original accelerator cable. It only lasted for 26+ years... how's that for quality?!

By the way, local aftermarket ones were priced @ $29.95 - 39.95 + tax. I located an OEM Ford [not Motorcraft] one still in the shrink wrapped package. It was manufactured on 8/18/94 and was $13.95 + 8.05 shipping. [$22.00 total]

I dont think I ever posted this. I had hit up the jy in search of anythin useful, when I came across this cc with captains chairs. I was surprised be the condition of these seats, I had given up hope of a nice seat already. So I no longer have late model mustang seats but a nice clean pair of chairs in my truck once again. Such a minor thing makes a HUGE difference.

Played with the YFA in the rain

I took my Carter YFA off today and put in a bigger metering rod. I've been playing with the darned thing trying to get better MPG's. The old rod was .037, .054. the replacement was .048, .058. Going back a long way to my Carter AFB days, it seems to me that is a pretty big change in size. the truck still started and ran but it seemed to run a little better and have better throttle response. Time will tell the story on the MPG's. It poured down rain the whole time, it was supposed to rain all day here but the rain stopped just as I finished up.

Next up is getting a pix of the chrome trim on here to see if I can find the missing piece for my door. I've gone to all the local ford JY hot spots here and can't find anything like it. I've gone trough all the pictures I could find in mags and on the internet and haven't seen a truck like it. It's a 81 Ranger XLT with a single trim strip approx. 1 in. wide and it has a black plastic strip through it. That will just about finish my driveway (nice term for halfast) restoration.
