        Get ready to read something long. I appreciate any and all help.

        I have a 390 that won't start.

        It has new

        Plug Wires

        Distributor Cap

        Coil

        Fuel Pump

        I have cleaned the carburetor pretty well. I am not running the gas from the factory tank for the reason it is red, last I knew gas isn't red.

        The fuel source is a Mason jar. The truck was factory with dual tanks. This is a problem because I cannot locate a switch on the floor to change to my main tank from the auxiliary tank, which is no longer on the truck. The reason I cannot find the switch is that the floors were replaced many years ago before I bought the truck. The truck also has a mess of vacuum lines that go nowhere.

        I have also considered switching the truck to electronic ignition. I have had points in a similar engine and they lasted about a month and a half each. The truck cranks slow and kills a battery after about six cranks. I think it may have a wiring issue. It blew the passenger side headlight and I replaced it and now it won't come on.

        Should I save this truck as I had originally planned or should I search for something else?

          Anyone drive a Fiesta? I'm looking at one to replace my Focus. I drive a ton of miles so my main concern is fuel efficiency and reliability. I'm looking to buy the cheapest base model and could care less about power and performance as long as it does alright on the interstates. Also, I live in Texas so it's nothing to maintain 80+ mph for extended amounts of time. My 2.0 handles it fine but wondering how well the 1.6 handles it. Please let me know your experiences.

                If I took my stock 360 and pulled the rotating assembly and heads. Then swapped in a 1974 390 rotating assembly and heads with a edelbrock performer intake manifold and a larger cam. Am I ruining the value of a truck that's nearly completely factory?

                Also how sluggish would the engine be? Or should I forget all that and find an overdrive unit for the fmx 3 speed it has?

                  I have a question — Ford Lovers Forever

                  I have a question:

                  Did Ford Motor Company make any concessions whatsoever in the GM and the Chrysler Baleout?

                  I am arguing with a radio host that Ford did make a concession to the US government to build electric cars in the US is that true?

                    T was the night before Christmas and all through the garage — Ford Lovers Forever

                    T’was the night before Christmas and all through the garage,

                    Not a trace of a Chevy…or even a Dodge.

                    The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit,

                    So I figured I’d mess with my old truck a bit.

                    As I pulled the pins and lifted the hood,

                    When a deep voice behind me said - - “Looks pretty darn good!”

                    Well as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick,

                    And there, by the workbench, stood good ol Saint Nick!

                    He stood there a bit, not too sure what to say,

                    Then with a smile out came, “I’ll trade ya my sleigh?”

                    I said “No way, Santa” and started to grin,

                    “But if you got the time, let’s go for a spin!”

                    His round little mouth, all tied up like a bow,

                    Turned into a smile and he said “hey! Let’s go!!”

                    So not to disturb the neighbors as they sleep,

                    We push the old truck quietly to the street,

                    Then, cinching our belts as we coast down the hill,

                    I grabbed second gear as I let the clutch spill!

                    The sound that erupted took him by surprise,

                    But he liked it a lot - - by the look in his eyes.

                    With Goodyears a screamin’ and pipes all aglow,

                    We headed on out where the gear heads all go!

                    Santa’s grin widened, approaching his ears,

                    With every up shift, as I went through the gears.

                    He yelled “I can’t remember when I felt so alive!”

                    So I backed off the gas and said - - “you wanna drive?”

                    Ol Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys,

                    When he walked past the headlights he shook at the knees!

                    The old FE

                    screamed with its evil sound,

                    As Santa dumped the clutch, the tires shook the ground!

                    Power shift into second, again into third!

                    I sat there just watching, at a loss for a word.

                    Santa’s white knuckles, grippin’ the wheel with fear,

                    The look in his eyes said, “I don't need them reindeer!”

                    I heard him exclaim as we blasted from sight,

                    “Merry Christmas to all… and to all a good night!”

                      I know she's just an Explorer, but I absolutely love her.. and want to show her off...

                      Her name is Emily, she's a 1995 with almost 200k miles now, I've owned her for over 10yrs bought her from the original owner. When I found her she was abandoned and forgotten in a back yard for 5 yrs..

                      After a deep cleaning, a full maintenance and a new A/C system she was brought back like new... She was the first vehicle my wife and I bought together and for a while in the beginning the only one we had and could afford.. she got us through a tough time and has always been reliable... we plan to keep her for a long time to come....
