If I could have one option, the power pack would be the one. Man o man. What sin is it to lust for something someone else has????
From what I understand, the genny can be found, but the inner fender is pretty much impossible to locate...

Now that is a pretty neat feature! I wonder how hard one of those generators would be to find... I could probably just hack up the fender walls on my 73 and make it work, they've seen better days! Does anybody have any idea of the dimensions of that thing?

Sam

of course, I guess I should earn some money before I start making all these plans...

I've seen just the generator itself go for over $500 on ebay.

Thumbs up sweet

The Onan generator (Ford: Power Pack) was offered as an option: 1969/71 F100/250 & 1969/72 F350 / All w/240/300/360/390 engines.

The generator and the parts necessary to install it are shown here: 1964/72 Ford Truck Parts Catalog / Illustration Section 60, Page 18.

One thing is not shown: The left fender inner apron is different (C9TZ16055A w/generator / C7TZ16055C w/o generator).

Exactly! Good luck finding the inner fender. If someone out there has one, I'll buy it. In fact, I might throw in my 'second born' to sweeten the deal (you can't have my first born, she's actually turning out pretty good )

The genny itself is pretty heavy, so there's some reinforcement needed if you're going to chop up a regular inner fender. There's a thread from a few months ago where this was discussed...

Yeah, that thing does look like a big heavy ol heavy chunk of metal. I'll think I found that thread you mentioned, someone mentioned it weighed in at about 150lbs! I think that would be a bit much for my rig.

Bill can correct me on this, but I seem to remember someone saying that if you got the power pack you also got heavier front springs...

This info would have been listed in the salesman's facts book. It's not listed in the parts catalog, but it makes sense.

I've got one. The gen, frame mount, muffler and I think maybe the tail pipe. Email me at [email protected] if you are interested. Mike

i got one too, when i had it shipped to me the ship weight was 149.7 LBs......then we had a quake here in cali and it fell over and a few things cracked on it. it mounts to the frame and the fender just goes around it. but it would still be good for parts if someone needs some.

I was working at a ford dealership in the San Fernando Valley during the sixties doing new car get ready and 15A work and in all those years I saw only one truck with the package. The dealership put out a lot of pick-ups. Pretty rare indeed. Just a side note, when Ford would have their spring white sale 1/2 ton 3 speed, 6cyl, No heater no radio, no spare tire, Black, white, blue, or tan. $1777.00

Darrell, the gen sits on a heavy frame mounted stamped bracket. The inner fender didn't support the unit. I can't remember if the fender sandwiched between the unit and the bracket or if the panel was relieved for it. Pretty heavy bracket! I just went out to my shop to look at the bracket and the gen sat on rubber insulators so the bracket must have passed through the fender panel. The fuel line is attached to the bracket assy. Can't tell much more than that its' been sitting on a high shelf for the last 20 years.

the fender goes around it, all that i have from the bracket is the top piece that is bolt to the gen, but have the cad drawing of the mount to make one.
