So the 352 auto tranny isn't original..Where can one find the original color?
inside the glove box is a dark(H L P) green Houston Lighting Power for those from the Houston Texas area back in the 60s thru 80s.
Look on the tag on the back edge of the door .It will have all of the info on there..You can ask on here or use google to decode all the numbers.

Re: 65 Ford F 100

She'd been sitting out sense 2004; I did a gas IV and primed the carb . The 352 came to life. Now I can rest at ease because I didn't know I didn't know if she ran or not. I 'm sure there is some bugs in her. I know 1 is the float in the carb. is stuck.has any body ever used seafoam to soak the carb. in?

My Dad soaked his carb in gas to clean it (yes IK how stupid that sounds). But I imagine carb cleaner would do the job better than seafoam.

Re: 65 Ford F 100

I know this may sound stupid but i have taken them off the engine and soaked them in a 5 gallon pail of faucet water over night and then took the front and rear bowls off and all was good. I dont know how bad yours is or if it will work in your case but worth a try.

Re: 65 Ford F 100

Update!
I went out to start her up this morning .As I turned the key she spun over and stopped like it locked up.. I pulled the plugs and shinned my flash light into each plug opening some had gas in them.. So I go into the house got another cup of coffee and paper towells to soak up the gas in the cylinders.I tried 1 which seams like it took foreverrrr . So I said to myself " Self" just spin it over.. Bad idea.. In the process of spinning it over it sprayed gas every where, which was followed by flames.
Keeping my cool I got the water hose and put out the speaker and insulation fires. Then I turned the hose to the engine area .Got the fires out finished my coffee. Checked the damage ,just some blackened wires. I put the plugs back in and it started but it was still spitting and sputtering like bent push rods.
I took the valve covers off and everything was pumping as it should again I myself "self'' move the distributor ,I did . She fired right up..
I put the radiator on cranked her up pull ed her out of the garage into natural light.I was putting water in the radiator and saw water coming from behind the motor mount..Yelper busted freeze plug.. Going to change them all . On the plus side she did move on her own.
Does anybody have the accelerator that goes on the firewall?

The D engine code in 1965 indicates a 352 as the 292 Y-block was not used after 1964. 660873 indicates it was built in March of 1965.

AC, all Power. Sweet! If you don't mind saying, what did you pay and how did you come by it. I have a 352 engine looking for a PU myself.

Re: 65 Ford F 100

I was surfing the internet different sites found it in '' east texas car sale''. I was looking for something to put the 460/c6 in. It was in Center. I got it for 700.00
I've got the 352 running and it's powerfully strong. I've been using it around the lower 4. I saw some on craigs list. here while back.
The tire store I always use gave me some 33 x12.50 x 15 and my was gona throw the yellow wheels away. (I like Free!!)
