frown Help! 74 F100 4X4 Cab Mounts?

I'm doing a frame up restoration of my 1974 F100 4X4 and have it prety much all apart. The cab and all the front clip is off the frame as is the engine, transmission transfer case etc.

The problem I'm having is that I can't get the 6 rubber cab and radiator support mounts apart. I bought some new urethane mounts to install, but they use the origional steel parts of the old mounts and I cannot get those !@#$@@%@% things off. I've followed the new mount manufacturers recomenddations as to how to remove them, but they are rusted, or frozen solid. I've beat on them with a single jack and punch but only one has come apart and now I'm afraid I may have ruined the others.

If anyone knows where I can get some new mounts, or how to remove the old ones without ruining them, I would love to hear about it.

Thanks,

Kerry Johnson

sorry to hear that kerry but i can offer you no help as i have never fiddled with cab mounts.
i might be able to find you a supplier of some new mounts though if i look around in my pile of parts books.

If you can find a supplier for the metal hardware, that would be great. I have spent a few hours calling and looking on the web, but have completely struck out. The replacement parts for the rubber grommets are easy to get and are availble from any number of suspension parts suppliers. The metal parts are what I'm having trouble with and aparently not available. I may be able to find part numbers, but I doubt it will help.

Re: Help! 74 F100 4X4 Cab Mounts?

ok check this site out kerry, it is one that has been mentioned on the site before and i have one of their catalogs.
www.LMCtruck.com
they have a section in my catalog with cab mounting hardware and they do have a part number for the mounting bolts, washers, and retainers along with urethane bushings.
i would give you part numbers but my book is for 80 - 86 models and might be different than 74 part numbers.
let us know how you make out !!



actually i went ahead and checked their site and couldnt find the parts you need but if you fill out the form for a catalog i would almost garauntee they will be in the catalog.

Hey! Thanks for mssing me.

I did get the catalog and it's a great resource for parts. I also found another really good source for old Ford F series and Bronco stuff. It's called Jeff's Bronco Graveyard and they have all the new hardware, you can get one piece or the complete set. Bronco Graveyard is online and they have a paper catalog you could get. One of the things I really like that they have is Blue Poly Ureathane, bushings for everything.

Thanks again for the help,

Kerry
