John,
I do appreciate your help so very much. Here, I have been trying
to find this and that from people all over the world and right under my
nose, (is a mustache), a man with every Ford part for trucks known to man
lives just 2 easy hours from me......
Why have I never heard of him?? I thought I'd heard about every obsolete
dealer in the world.

I have the whole column from a 68 or 67 three speed with steering
wheel I took out when I junked the truck. Don't know how much it
costs to ship but I don't have any use for it now. I'll try to
remember to check the shed tonight and make sure I still have it.
Has a brand new shift collar on it too, the white metal part that

Steve, Deacon, et al.

Just printed out the page and read it... EXCELLENT JOB !!! I think
I'll just give these instructions to my wife and let her do it ! Many
thanks for the work, to you and all who contributed...

Whether we say it or not...we all appreciate the effort it takes to
"share" this information/knowledge with the others in the group. I
wish I was smart enough to be able to do this for someone. Maybe when
I get this project completed my knowledge base will be broad enough to
offer to others. I certainly owe it to several people already.

Now when can I expect the article on
"The Complete Wiring Of A 53-56 Ford F-100"

is there THAT much beer ?????

Hi there,

Thanks for all the leads on the hub gaskets. The Ford part numbers from Dave
W. worked like a charm, I ordered them from Ford this morning. BUT, I'll wait
'till I actually have them in my hand before I really believe they are the
right ones!

Thanks again!

Can you please give me the Ford part number for the "O" ring that goes on the
actuating knobs for those heavy-duty hubs? I'll see if Ford has them as

From: Vogt Family
Subject: Boxing the Frame

Before I install a 429 or some other ridiculously huge motor in my 61
F-100 4x4, my teacher suggested I box the frame between the two forward
most cross members. He said that it was probably not necessary even to
go as far as the cross members but that boxing about a foot to the front
and rear of the motor mounts should be sufficient. He suggested using a
piece of plate cut to fit inside the frame channel, welded to form a
box. This truck currently has a 223 six cylinder that attaches the front
motor mounts near the radiator and there are no provisions for V8 motor
mounts that I can see other than a few bolt holes.

Do you have any suggestions or is this way the best?

Also, will I be able to find a bellhousing to match a 429 to the T98?

Stock it has more compression, and a great deal more aftermarket high

The 460 is definitely bigger (and better as a stock engine) but the 428 leaves
you with more options for later IMHO....

i could be mistaken, but i know of nothing available for a 428 that does
not have an equal part available for the 460. and isn't the 427 a "better"
performance motor than the 428?

There is no doubt about it that tall and skinney is better in snow.
Did you see that BFG has an All/Terrain in 9.50"x 33" R15?

Should be a great snowtire with the height and that pattern, yet clear
old fenders well being so slim. Anyone tried it?

Subject: ADMIN: Pigeon Forge show

It's official, Ford Truck Enthusiasts will have a booth at the
20th Annual F100 Nationals in Pigeon Forge, Tenn! Show dates
are (this is from the promoter himself, there have been
conflicting dates mentioned): May 14-17 (Thursday through
Sunday). We may have the booth space as early as Thursday
morning but it may not get set up until the afternoon (paying
vendors get moved in and setup first). We plan to have the
booth up the entire weekend.

We plan to give out brochures and sell the window stickers
there. I need to get some volunteers to man the booth a couple
of hours each so I don't spend the entire show sitting in a
chair..... I really want to get a chance to look at some of the
trucks! Even taking a 30 minute session would be great so I
could make bathroom runs!

Concerning a Ford Truck Enthusiasts picnic, the entire town
is booked solid. We'll have to informally arrange a time
and place to meet for dinner while at the show.

If you need show information, check out the event guide on the
web site. Looking forward to meeting many of the list members
there. Perhaps the west coast members could arrange to meet at
a west coast show?

Subject: Re: Gas Tank Sealer

My supervisor is the local resident expert on Harley's and he mentioned something
that they use on the gas tanks of the motorcycles that would seem to work on our
trucks, especially older ones. He claims its the best.

Its a product called KREAM. Its a three part process, but to make this short your
tank's interior is cleaned with an acid, and eventually sealed with a liquid that
places an gasoline impurvious coating inside the tank. The only draw back is that
you must remove the tank from the vehicle to do this. He claims it seals even pin
holes and poor seam welds.

Anyway, have any of you guys on this list who own Harley's tried this product? I
could see where it would come in handy for some of the more classic trucks that
finding a replacement tank for could be difficult.

My experience with 4 wheel disk is that no residual pressure valves are
required. In fact when using a disk /drum type master cylinder you need to
remove the residual pressure valve from the port. The way disk brakes work is
that they are always in contact with the disk to some extent there are usually
no return springs that are strong enough to push the piston into the caliper.....
