Pretty soon, though, even the workingman preferred a straight-sided bed over a stepside. I remember they were a common failure, plastic pivots wearing out, crumbling, not keeping the points set. Twin I Beam first appeared in 1965; prior to that all the F-Series trucks used a solid front axle. Each manufacturer had their own trade names for each style. I would hardly call that went bad out of the clear blue. Reproduction of any part of this website, including design and content, without written permission is strictly prohibited.

To distinguish the two, they were often referred to as shortbed and longbed models. Not much help for you, but that's my opinion for now.

The longbed models quickly became the more popular of the two. The body is in really good shape.

How is the plate grounded? I have not replaced the condenser and beginning the think it might have gone bad but never had one just go bad clear out fl the blue. Then again its been a while so I may not know what I'm talking about. Replace the condenser, and she'd fire right up. I am leaning towards a fuel issue. They seemed to be more popular with shortbeds, and may have lasted longer in that size than in the longer standard-sized box.

All manufacturers except Toyota offer a larger-than-5. Tried the new coil I have and still no run and weak if any spark but have spark at the point when I open them. Unmoleste, Low mile original Factory ordered short wheelbase one ton, with 16 inch wheels. Have good gas flow to the carb and it will not fire on starter fluid either. I have even pulled the gas line off the carb and spun it over and had a good flow out of the line mmfan55 Long Time User Joined: 14 Sep 2013 Posts: 1075 Posted: Sat Aug 12, 2017 6:16 pm Post subject: Re: 1965 Ford runs then dies 1 ton truck Run a though check on ignition wiring. Got ti started yesterday and had it sitting there running just fine then it died and would not start again. Just throwing out some ideas.
Jeep: Townside and Thriftside on Gladiator Sportside on J-10. Yes, the Peterbilt of pickups: all work and no play. This is the big, butch older brother of my little 63 F100 with the short flairside bed. And of one were to really need to haul with this truck, they could add a two speed rear end. In addition to these, there were other variations too, of course, including short beds, and the 4x4s which oddly came in a shorter wheelbase and used the bed from the previous generation F Series. Do you know the application for the new coil? But the pontoon fendered models continued to be available as well. Ford called the pontoon style Flareside, and the slab style Styleside.
Often getting a replacement tank for these popular models is cheaper and easier than trying to clean out and patch up an old one. Ford: Styleside and Flareside, until 2009. I do get a weak spark at the points when I open then but not as good as I get when I do that on a tractor. Low miler too} Excellent Hobbyist type truck to restore or use as is.

When I put in new points and cleaner where they mounted to make sure of a good ground.
Got some gold bars to haul? Could it have been internally shorted, too low resistance and prematurely arced the points? And this one does have it. At a certain point, maybe in the 1990s, the pontoon fenders made a comeback, albeit in a modernized form that was more of cross between the two styles than a true old-fashioned pontoon fender. The hood has some bondo but could be worked out back to steel with the right body shop. Did you check the ohms on the old coil? I am sure you could figure out what and when things went wrong. Any information a replacement or even a picture so I could attempt to fab one that would be close to original would be greatly appreciated.
Solid western truck with original paint etc. Yes, ignition causes more problems than fuel in the older stuff. These pre-smog 300s put out some serious power; they were rated at 170 gross hp; that translated to 146 net hp, more than many V8s from the 70s and early eighties. Dodge called the pontoon style Utiline, and the slab style Sweptline. Years ago, I had a tractor that went through condensers.
