Any updates on the overdrive? Now that I have my tranny swap done I don't feel like a hypocrite for bugging you.

Lol. But, you didn't say how your spin went...are you still alive? Can you hit 140? It looks great. Super-sano install. Nice work. I do really like that you have overdrive in 4WD.

I've got the NP 205 just about ready to go in. Thought I'd swap just the transfer case to start with and once I'm sure that is working fine then add the overdrive and get the driveshaft.

This thing is going back together nicely. I can spin it in 4WD with thumb and forefinger only and barely any effort at that.

That is a nice looking transfer case. I sometimes wish I was a little more of a perfectionist.

I don't have overdrive per say, I am just going to swap in 3.54's (or maybe 3.73's) in the near future - if I have time. So no, it doesn't go any faster but if you get clocked by an HP going 103 MPH, do you really need to go any faster?

I'll just say "Ouch" and leave it at that. There's no place to go 103 around Seattle without making lots of other people mad. Keeps things under 80. Lol.

I was replacing the rear main seal in the 300. I was just about to paint the dust shield before it and the bellhousing and flywheel go back on, but thought I'd take a picture of this one spot on it that I've seen before on some other engines but never knew what it was for.

Anyone know what the timing marks are on this piece? I have the rubber plug that goes in the hole, too (not pictured). Would be a bear to try to time it from underneath! Although, I guess a person could reach up and turn the distributor from below. Hahaha.

The 240, at least, must use this same dust shield I would think.

C5TE-6A373 is stamped on it. And TDC, 3, 6, 10 and 14. You're staring right at the flywheel through the hole so timing obviously, but was it only used by the factory?

Nobody? Maybe I'll ask in the 300/4.9L section below.

Someone asked before. I just disassembled two faceplates to get the large plastic gear out of one that was all pitted and put it in the one in my white truck. At some point along the way someone had removed its faceplate without taking the right hand tuning shaft with it and they put a notch in the big gear which causes one or more "misses" while tuning the radio across the range. Anyway, to do this you have to rewind the radio dial tuning cord. There is a good diagram of it in the schematics. This is for the 1966 Bendix AM 6TBB (Bronco), 6TBT (Truck), 6TBU (Econoline) and 6TBW (Ford W Series) radios. I am almost positive it applies to 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964 and 1965, also, as far as the dial cord stringing goes.



I hope this is useful to anyone that needs it.

Weather is holding up nicely. Beautiful Fall.


I picked up this coupling shaft. Part number


C5TZ-4817-P


I like the stenciled part number.

My white truck came stock with the standard gray visors instead of the padded visors. They are in really excellent shape since they had these odd looking old school plastic covers on the visors, but they did have a mirror on the passengers side that left some marks on the backside.





The reproductions are not very close in color or shape. Most used ones are either worn out looking and stitches coming undone or the gray covers are missing completely and only the inner backer board is remaining. I was able to score some NOS ones still in the paper envelopes. Same right and left side

Standard visors - C5TZ-8104104-AAB









Others were talking about the plate and foam on some of the floor shifted trucks, at least on the NP435. This is the original plate and foam from the white truck. Pretty good shape for old foam that's been hanging out underneath the truck on top of the transmission for 50 years.


If I had to pick between my samples of satin and semi-gloss black I'd have to say the remaining paint on the plate is of the semi-gloss sheen.


Transmission Cover Weather Pad (foam) - C0TB-8112130-A


Transmission Cover Pad Plate - Used with NP435 - C6TZ-8112131-A

I was using some of the Castrol Super Clean on the NP435 out of my white truck and revealed these numbers.

5N4AT indicates F100/250(6 & 8 cyl.) - 4/W/D . This truck is a so cool.

Here's a couple pictures of the headlights on my white truck. They both have etched in them an oval with "MADE FOR" above it and "FoMoCo" in the oval. I believe these are likely the headlights it left the assembly line with. These type are not reproduced as far as I know. They do both still work fine. If you look closely at things like the letter M where the tail hangs down you can see they are different than one another. Some sort of little stencils they used for this stuff. I think these details are pretty interesting.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that Mac's has repop headlights with the FoMoCo written on them. I wanted to buy a set when one of my originals burned out but they were a fair bit pricier.

The reproduction FoMoCo script headlights available today are distributed by Bob Drake. Halogens. They aren't etched, but embossed. A little (well, a lot if you care about such things) different than the type pictured.

I removed the battery tray and took it down yesterday to Seattle Powder Coat to get it refinished in black. There is a lot of white overspray on it. Truck has not been repainted so I assume the overspray was factory, but either way it'll be all black once they are done. No signs of any pitting.

I was cleaning up the intermediate coupling shaft and found the identification numbers on it.

Two characters are different than the stenciled characters on the NOS coupling shaft above

C5TZ-4817-P

https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...l#post14711552

But, the MPC calls out both on the same line with the former being an ID number and the latter being the part number.

I've also been cleaning up the frame some in situ. It looks much worse than it really is. Here's a sample before and after of the same location on the frame. A little orange peel, but no pitting. Looked like it would be heavily pitted before I started, but it comes off with ease.

Here are pictures of the two templates that came with the NOS rubber floor mat part number C6TZ-8113010-BH1A. These are both referred to as Instruction sheet No. 1711 or simply IS1711. They each measure 42" wide by 24" tall. I do some picture framing as a hobby and I should frame these two drawings.

The MPC specifies this front floor mat for some years, ND can give more. But, it says 1965/1966 F100/250 4x4, F350/750 (81) - "Used with all transmissions-(for high transmission cover)". These instructions also list a bunch of models that this applies to, but shows some C and N series where the MPC only shows F series as far as I can see.

The first sheet is where to cut out for the clutch rod and the second sheet is where to cut for the transmission, transfer case if so equipped and parking brake handle and other special equipment. It's got the mold number and says "The Ohio Rubber Co. - Willoughby, Ohio". They do not appear to be in business any longer as far as I could tell.

This last picture is sort of funny - sort of a legal notice. I guess these are just on loan to me from The Ohio Rubber Co.....lol

1972: FoMoCo was forced by the US Gov't to sell Auto-Lite, because the gov't claimed FoMoCo had a monopoly on auto parts.

FoMoCo then came out with in-house brand Motorcraft. All the Auto-Lite part numbers became Motorcraft part numbers.

After Albert Champion sold his company to General Motors, he started a new company: Champion Spark Plugs.

I was just working on my truck some and checking some torque specs when I ran across this in the 1966 factory service manual. Section is about the mechanical fuel pump. They talk about 2 brands - Carter and, you guessed it, AC.



Bill, remind us again about what you were saying about an AC PCV valve not being original because AC didn't supply Ford with any parts?!?

I knew you were wrong then but didn't say anything too bold. But, here's proof that Ford did source certain parts from AC.

Thanks!
Chad

Hey there, I'm kind of new to the site. You sound knowledgeable and I thought I'd send you a pic of my truck. I'm not sure of the value because I haven't seen another to comp it. If you have any advice on pricing this truck I'd appreciate. Thanks
