I have a similar project, a 1969 ford F100 SWB that has a 352 from a 66 ford pick up, 4 speed. What I want to know is can I put the spindles and calipers from an 84 ford f 150 on this to give it better stopping power, or do I need to purchase an after market disc brake conversion kit? I would use new rotors and pads, but the 84 would donate the needed spindles, brake booster and master cylinder.

Every morning my1978 F-100 will not move in the drive position, until I press the throttle several times. This take about two minutes. It will move in the reverse position just fine. After it's at normal temperature it's OK. What could be the problem?

I would pull tranny pan and change filter

Ray's on the right track I think. It may be a sticking valve in the valve body. Worst case scenario? You might have to drop the valve body and clean it. This would require extreme cleanliness and air pressure.

Why don't you drop this guy a line on eBay and see if he has anything for you? He seems to specialize in this sort of thing.
Ford Wiring Diagrams
Another idea-- try the public library and see if they have an older Motor's Manual or Chilton manual for your truck.
