72 f250 4x4...

Hello, Purchased a clean Colorado 72 f250 sport custom 4x4 4 speed...It has the orig 360 but its bad..we also got a 74 390 and planned on dropping it in...seems simple enough.....but I see on here there may be a few specific parts to switch over....the dipstick on the 390 broke off at the base but do I need to use the 360 one? Any other issues you can think of? Thanks...also looking for a set of poverty caps for the orig 16" wheels...I see a lot of them but don't know on fitment.....will also need a rear bumper ..was thinking of a roll pan for a clean look...your thoughts? thanks...

"kesojf", Welcome to the Forum. Here is some dipstick specs that "Numberdummy" posted on another thread: C7TZ-6750-B .. Engine Oil Dipstick / 17 11/16" shield to full / 18 31/64" shield to add / 19 19/32" shield to full / Obsolete

1967 F100/250 2WD & F350 352 // 1968/74 F100/250 2WD & F350 360/390 // Ditto 1975 before serial number W00,001. So the 360 stick will work just fine.
The 360/390 will hold 6 qt.s in the pan just right,plus 1 more for the filter. If no one speaks up about the parts you need, then check out the "MarketPlace" on the FTE forum front page for parts, then maybe Ebay, offerup, Facebook marketplace. Or the Pick and Pull near you. I think the roll pan is indeed a clean look. But if you're going to do any hauling, you may want a bumper too.

This is a 2WD dipstick, the OP has a 1972 F250 4WD so this dipstick will not work!

There were no front hubcaps with a hole in the center for the hub to poke thru available for F250 4WD's until the late 1980's.

However, some people take the 2WD hubcap, cut a hole in the center. See TYPE 4 in pic:

This is a 11 3/4" diameter "outie" hubcap used on 1967/77 F250/350 2WD and the rear wheels of F250 4WD's; 1969/74 E300; 1975/77 E250/350 / Both are obsolete.

Two versions: Painted argent with black appointments, or stainless steel with black appointments.

However you have to be careful when buying, because there are 1967/68 F250/350 "innie" versions that are 10 5/16" diameter.

"Innie" hubcaps will not fit "outie" wheels and vice versa.

You will need to use the oil pick-up tube and oil pan off the 360. It has to be a rear sump or it will hit the axle. If the 390 was out of a car or 2 wheel drive truck, the dipstick went into the block. You will need to block that hole as the 4 wheel oilpan has the dipstick in it. Good luck and post some pics of your new ride.

Ok...Thanks guys...have the cap sorted as I need the larger outie caps...but the dipstick confuses me as they are both in the same place..drivers side block near oil filter...the pans seem a little different as the 360 seems deeper in the rear..if that makes a difference.....its nice to have both motors to compare...how do I tell the 390 4x2 or 4x4 difference?

390's were not factory installed with 4WD .. 1968/76 F100/250 4WD: The only available V8 = 360 2V

Are your split rims 16inch or 16.5 inch?

There's no 12" diameter cap, see post #3. Notice there's a difference between "innie" wheels/hubcaps and "outie" wheels/hubcaps.

Innie = So called because the hubcap snaps over tabs located on the inside of the wheels center section.

Outie = So called because the hubcap snaps over tabs located on the outside of the wheels center section.

1967/68's could be innies or outies, 1969 and later are outies, but one never knows...because people love to swap parts around.

You are going to have to visit a junkyard for innie 16" split rim wheels of which many have scrapped them because it is very hard to get them worked on. The other option is to order from a custom wheel manufacturer like Stockton Wheel to get new innie rims made to fit the caps you want. And would advise to do a stroke test on your 390 as the adage applies: "a 390 on sale day, a 360 every other day".

F250's were not available with innie wheels after 1968. Outie wheels were introduced in 1967, so some 1967/68's have innies, some have outies, as do all 1969/96 F250's, 1997 F250 H/D's.

1967/68 innie wheels used a 10 5/16" diameter hubcap, 1967/77 F250 outie wheels used a 11 3/4" diameter hubcap.

OP has a 1971 F250 4WD that came with outie wheels and rear (only) outie hubcaps. See posts # 3 & 9.

And, the 390 was not factory installed with 4WD .. 1968/76 F100/250 4WD: Only available V8 = 360 2V
