Oooooo...you are good. It's the T65L-6000-A block puller for, at least, the 240 and 300. Thought I couldn't go wrong for $9.99. Any thoughts on finish I should give it?

OK.....What did I win???...... I think eastwood has some paint for castiron manifolds intake and exhaust but I dont know what the costs are. It may cost more for that paint than the part costs itself.

Good point. I have several cans of black so that's probably the cheapest way to go.

I bought the CD from HipoParts.com but it won't arrive for a few days. I need to change out the radiator hoses as they are some CarQuest hoses that are bigger than 1.5" diameter and don't fit well at all, buldging severely at the clamps.

Trying to keep the beast as stock as possible.

This is for the 1966 F250 4x4 with 300 6 cylinder NP435.
For upper hose I got a C5TZ-8260-V, is that correct?
Can anyone help with the number for the lower hose?
What type of clamps did these originally use? I saw the old black and white pic of the 1965 engine in another post and that looks like a wire grip clamp. Anyone have any info on the clamps? Are these close to correct?

Thanks
Chad

Upper hose: 1965/66 F100/250 2WD/4WD 240/300 I-6 // Lower hose: 1965/72 F100/250 2WD/4WD 240/300 I-6.

C5TZ-8260-V .. Upper Radiator Hose-1 1/2" I.D. / Obsolete / 5 available NOS

C7TZ-8286-E (replaced C5TZ-8286-B & C7TZ-8286-G) .. Lower Radiator Hose-1 3/4" I.D. (Auto-Lite/Motorcraft KM-90) / Obsolete / 11 available NOS

Factory installed clamps were the wire grip type you had to spread open to install them, were not available at the parts counter. Screw type clamps sold at the parts counter.

btw: I don't have the Auto-Lite/Motorcraft part number for C5TZ-8260-V as it was replaced in 1969 by C9PZ-8260-T which is a universal "fitz-all" flex hose.

C5TZ-8260-V is apparently a Motorcraft KM-202. I bought this one not knowing if it was a decent price or not.

FORD TRUCK 65 66 UPPER RADIATOR HOSE F SERIES 6CYL | eBay

The C5TZ-8260-B lower hose is an interesting number. Only varies from the upper hose by that last alpha character, is that right? B (lower) versus V (upper) or am I not seeing something here?

It sure is, because it's a TYPO!
Should have been, and now is after I edited: C5TZ-8286-B / This part number was replaced in 1967 with C7TZ-8286-E

Upper hoses are basic part number 8260, lower hoses are basic part number 8286.

Only basic part numbers are shown in the illustration section. The text section is required to get the complete part number by adding the prefix & suffix.

You'll find this out when you get the catalog. With 4,941 pages of text, 1,961 pages of illustrations, you'll have a lot to look at.

You will have some short days and long nights pretty soon. Good time to catch up on your reading. The sun will be low in the western sky.

I've run into a bit of a stumper that I'm hoping someone might have run into before.

I'm replacing the upper and lower radiator hoses. CS65 has seen my truck and as soon as he looked at the radiator he said it was original. The upper main tube is about 1 1/2" outside diameter. The lower main tube is about 1 3/4" outside diameter. Here's some pics of the radiator tag and tubes.







That last one is the upper hose C5TZ-8260-V on the radiator looking down. The other end fits the thermostat housing perfectly. All good there.

Today I get two, what *should be*, C5TZ-8286-B lower hoses but both ends on them are 1 1/2" inside diameter. They don't fit the outlet or the water pump. You can see the part number and the FoMoCo logo in these pics as well as fitment.









The hose seems like it has the wrong part number, isn't that saying C5JZ-8286-B? Their pick tag even says C5TZ. I'm sure they pulled the wrong part, no?

Is there anything there to identify a water pump? It's made in the U.S.A., but is that a date code? Surely it's been replaced?

J = Wrong hoses, where did you get them from?

Is there anything there to identify a water pump?
If the waterpump has a FoMoCo ID number cast on it: Yes / If it's an autoparts store replacement: No.

J = 3rd digit in part number prefix: Industrial engine related. I don't have an industrial catalog, so have no clue what C5JZ-8286-B is for. Doesn't really matter, cuz they're the wrong fracatta hoses.

btw: Next time you have a parts related problem like this, please type a new thread. I usually don't read thru members project threads that go on .. and on .. and on .. for gawd only knows how many pages.

Sorry about the run on thread. I'll start a new one for specific parts Q's.
These came from Green Sales. They are looking into it. Hopefully they have some Ts in stock.

Would you mind putting a picture or two of your springs on here?

The rear overload springs? Here's a couple. Let me know if you need more. It had eleven regular leafs and the one overload leaf.

I disagree, it looks like a 35K truck to me. Congratulations,you found a great low mileage truck. I seen hundreds and hundreds of this era truck, and yours stands out as genuine. Ask yourself, who many trucks have original paint? How many trucks have their original upholstry in great condition? How many trucks have a steering wheel with solid paint still intact, and not worn down to the color of the plastic.How many trucks have solid paint where drivers rest there arm on the window sill? How many trucks still have the original wheels? How many trucks have original build sheets?

Kind words. Thank you!

Under the category of "What did you do to your truck today"...

The radiator was a bit whamied on the backside from...I don't know what. Tools, most likely. The front side had a screen in front of it so it only had a couple of bugs in it and almost no bent portions. First I straightened it and then I cleaned it. I still intend to paint it with some radiator paint. The 13 lbs RC-6 radiator cap cleaned up real nice, too. CS65 said that it is an original cap, too.

I had just mentioned to shano63 and cs65 that I'd found the old hubs I was after. It took a bit of digging. Limited market for these, but I had a particular interest in them. Here's some pictures.
