Rich...

Ask a moderator to place this thread as a STICKY .. Otherwise it won't be long before the pages are buried with the other old threads.

FYI: 1973/79 Ford Light Truck Parts Catalog available on a C/D from hipoparts.com

Thanks for putting this together. Your insight and posted diagrams are a big help. Before I get on the forum and ask a question, I scroll though this sticky. Great work and thanks from all of us for your help.

I have painted all kinds of things like the fire walls on a 68 cougar xr7, 1956 ford, 1955 ford Crown Victoria, numerous parts, and a whole van for a friend.

It goes on really good with one coat, lots of coverage, 2nd coat has to be within an hour, or after 48 or something, I just do 1 coat. I tried other spray paint, but this is my favorite, for a rattle can job anyways. It's enamel, so it takes long time to cure. It does dull, and in a year I do expect to see rust coming out again, From Acklands Grainger.

Cowl painting advice:
Poly is not the same as epoxy. You need to lay down an epoxy primer over the areas of bare metal, let dry, give a light scuff then you can either lay down a poly surfacer ( high build) over the whole truck to fill any imperfections then block smooth and then spray primer sealer over the high build, block smooth then top coat or you can skip the poly surfacer and just go directly to sealer over the epoxy if you think your body work is good enough. Then top coat.

Ever seen a 77 grill on a 78/79 Bronco, it will fit just to be different.

Hey,

What year SD is this seat out of? I am digging the look.

2001 according to what I have read in the fellow FTE members thread that did it.

Do a thread search for a Arkansas member with a white 76/77 (?) 4x4 F250 that also did an awesome job with a headlight upgrade, its his truck thread I got the info from.

I just got a 79 f250 4x4 w/ factory a/c has a 400 and auto trans, camper special. It appears to be pretty much factory original, right down to the radio. It has 2 rectangular plastic reservoir tanks on the outside of the frame under the passenger door with mounts welded to frame. 1 has 2 rubber hoses to it but they were cut/broken off so I can't see where they go. They have no fluid in them. Any idea what they are? Thanks.


Sorry I should have taken pictures before I came to work.

Welcome to FTE, this thread is a "information thread only" and not the best place to ask questions, thanks for understanding.

No worries, I know you are new. So just make up a new thread (new thread box top left side of the 73-79 forum)and post the question there. That way your question will be seen my many more FTE members.

Camper Special...outside the frame, no probably NOT gas tanks, maybe old water storage tanks if they are large. I bet they are white and small (6x8 ish?) and are part of the old emission charcoal filter system?

I remove the set off my old 79 4x4 F250 351M 4spd.

Here is some more good stuff IMO.

1st pic is page 3 of the dealer installed a/c, a few pages back are pg 1 & 2 that go with it.

Hay folks copy and past this as a link and pass the word to fellow FTE folks. I suggest to copy and past the word text in a word doc and the pics onto your computer, that way you do not have to have the web to look at it.

Copy this and paste it to help out.
