    Smitty,

    I responded to your message about vacuum lines - I don't know if you saw it or not so I thought I would try this.

    I don't have a photo of my truck but I do have a great diagram - original ford. You mentioned the PSV? did you mean the PVS on the t-stat housing? My PVS has 3 ports, left goes to the spark port (passenger side) on the carb, middle goes to vac advance on the distributor and the right tees into the line coming from the manifold and continues to the bottom of the vac res.

    To find the diagram go to google, type in 1978 ford 351m diagram, the next page will show image results, the diagram is greenish in color (diagram 7-72-R11) and is linked to this site. Click on it. There is also another diagram - "I have a 1978" linked to justanswer.com.

    I hope this helps. My son has my truck right now, I'll try to get some photos from him and post them.

    Thanks for the offer. I'm trying to get wheels for my truck and I order some that at bolted out but the tire stuck out about 2 inches past the wheel well. So i'm not sure what offset is or how to order the wheels I need. I'm gong to research it today.

    Thanks!!!

    I'm in a truck club called Dixie Innovations that has just the kind of people you're looking for. We go wheelin' with my parents a lot. We got my mom a Bronco on 33" TSL's last spring so she could go with us. We're goin' on a trip this Saturday. I'm not sure if you can view this link because it's on Facebook but all the info is there to check it out. There's some pictures and videos of us on there too. I can't promise where we go won't have some redneck beer chuggers but that doesn't mean we have to hang with them. We like to go to a pretty local place near the intersection of ga 124 and interstate 20 off Union Grove Road.

    Thanks , It took awhile to finish this as my personal projects are secondary to the bread & butter ( customers projects ) that keep the business running and support my habit ( the 1ST-RIDE , stock truck & 426 wedge t -roadster .Alot of the work was done in seclusion just for the concentration factor . The trouble with this type of work -No room for error !! Have posted pics of some other completed projects .The 2 hall tables are recent . Am currently working on a custom round table apron top , round pedestal & base .Thanks for your service to this country to enable us to be somewhat free to do the things we like . Denny
