    Happy Birthday LEB Ben

    20 years of football is catching up with me. That's why I always said if I had boys, I'd make sure they were interested in golf or chess.

    VIN decoding contradiction, 78 F350 Supercab 7.5L 460

    That's C's in American/Canadian trucks anyway. Common misconception being that the M WAS the standard v8 for 77-79 trucks and several parts interchange with the C.

    VIN decoding contradiction, 78 F350 Supercab 7.5L 460

    The truck is 40+ years old at this point, so who swapped what and when is anybody's guess. As far as from the factory, 460's flat out didn't go in to light duty 4x4's until 83. Also worth noting, no 350's were 4x4's until 79 from the factory either. It would be interesting to see what the...

    Original ‘79 tires?

    They don't call it armstrong steering for nothing. But give Coker Tire a look, I know they have some retro skinnies that look like OEM tires

    Starter DB Electrical ?

    I've used the DB over the years...they also sell on ebay. Never for an SD though, but I'd say 50% of the time, they work every time.

    Future of FTF

    Also...not sure how possible it is here, but as this thread shows, forums are dying as a result of FB. Not sure if any of you are familiar with Keith Dickson of Fordification fame, but he seems to do a decent job bridging the gap in his groups by hosting content he only posts on his web...

    Instrument Cluster Back

    The wiper knob and heater knobs actually have a lock spring, if they slide on and off, they're broken. Otherwise, you'll need a 90* pick to depress the springs. The head light switch does have a push button release on the TOP of the actual head light switch behind the dash, a real pain in the...

    This doesn't look good!

    I'm not sure to be honest with you, but I'd imagine so.
