We can't have this! I know what your thinking "He was all
for it until he found out they didn't carry parts for his
'73". Well it's not true! It's not! It's not! It's not!
Oh, some of the parts will fit my '73? Well, I see most of
the people want this, so I'll go along with it for them! I
want to be fare to others! When do I get my catalog? Huh,
Huh, Huh? Do I get a discount? Huh, Huh, Huh?

If it's just the float You need, it's a pretty non-critical item.
Find a brass float out of any gas tank and solder it onto the arm.
I've used a brass carburetor float for gas guage sender repair...

What happened to Yours? did it sink? If it leaks, You can usually boil
the liquid out of them and then solder them up.

Just a bit of info from a guy in Virginia who ordered some parts from 2
West Coast mail order companies the same day (June 14); the first
company, Sacramento Vintage, got my parts to me in 2 days. The other,
SoCal, while having a great assortment of parts, has yet to get me some
items.

I know the score; parts are occasionally on b/o, etc, but the cusotomer
service I am getting from SoCal is really weak; almost no follow up to
status of orders, etc. After spending $1500 with them youwould expect a
bit more.

I am in business myself, and ship quite a bit, so I know what customer
service should be; so, although SoCal sure gets written up a lot in the
magazines, and although they have some neat products, don't be in a rush
if you need anything from them.

If anybody on the list has trouble with L&L, drop me a note, I am in
Dallas, do business with them and know them pretty well and am willing to
intercede(they are here in Dallas). They really are pretty good guys, but
its a small company and sometimes they do get distracted. Recently its been
new headers for Ch#'s.

Subject: 76 F250
Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

My wife and I have a 1976 F250 4x2 supercab with the optional rear
fold-down bench seat, 360-2V/C6, dual tanks, HD brakes, 8100 GVWR, 10.25
in. integral carrier full floating rear axle (no clue what the axle ratio
is); VIN : F25YK75957 (to help identify other options). As far as I can
tell, it is still all-original (except, of course, for those things that
require regular replacement). Problem is, the front cab mounts are rusting
through, and though we are rather fond of this vehicle, we cannot afford to
repair/restore it, and would rather not send it away to a scrapyard. Other
than the body being somewhat rough, and the box being rather rough, it is
in good shape. The engine burns a little oil on startup when it is cold
outside, and the rear seal is beginning to leak, but the engine is still
strong, with good compression.
Would there be anyone out there interested in such a vehicle, and if so,
what sort of offer would you make ? We are *considering* the idea of
selling the truck, but would prefer to sell to someone who is interested in
restoring it.
(We are located in northeastern Pennsylvania, reasonably close to the
Scranton and Williamsport areas.)

I was one of the positive votes, but -
Probably someone in our community has had a problem with a part, a person,
or a phone call with whatever company this is. We might need some ground
rules - sorry, not rules, but suggestions, about how a list member
could/should communicate their negative experiences - positive experiences
don't seem to be a problem.
I've been scowling about one company recently, but the story's not
resolved, and it might turn out OK - I'm not inclined to deal further with
them, however, if I can find similar parts elsewhere. How would I let the
list members know, without seeming to be ranting? I feel I have an
obligation to let list members know if I'm not satisfied with a company's
products, but the company needs a method of response if they are paying our
bills.

To: fordtrucks lofcom.com
Subject: They've agreed, working on details
Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Ok folks, good news. They've agreed. These are the
preliminaries:

1. They do not engage in the practice of putting you on a
mailing list (they won't even resend you next year's
catalog unless you request it).

2. Once we have an agreement worked out, I'll send the company
name and information to everyone on the lists. They are
requesting that we just use their online form to request
the catalogs, its easier for them to get in the format they
need.

3. They do not have a discount policy for organizations like
ours because everything still gets processed as separate
orders so it creates a huge processing headache for them.
Sorry! Regardless, they still have a huge selection, decent
prices and a great reputation.

4. I think in the event that someone has a problem with them,
they should contact them directly, state in your contact
(or email) that you are a member of this group. If that
doesn't work, bring it to the list like you would any other
problem. Like I said earlier, no outside party is going to
influence our list topics. Based on my experience with the
company in the past, this won't be a problem.

5. They do ship outside of the US and they're set up to deal with
customs. I'm not sure if they charge to ship a catalog out
of the country for free, I'll find out. Their old catalog
states $5 bucks to cover postage anywhere, but they didn't
charge me then when it states that they should have.

6. The company is Ford licensed, sells NOS and reproductions.
They do millions in business and will not go out of business
the day after you place an order!

7. If I didn't address a concern of yours, let me know.

Unfortunately, I don't feel comfortable giving out their name
until we have a solid agreement - I hope everyone understands.
Once we have an agreement, **complete** details of the company,
our financial arrangement, subscription information and what we're
going to provider for them. I think once everyone see's the dollar
figure, you'll see that we're not going to make a buck off them,
just pay our expenses.

1. Kill the Caps Lock
2. 53-56 (at least) panel truck seats with brackets (nothing to brag about)
3. Anything else, you make the brackets, or drill the holes. I had Volvo in
my '52, very nice, Chevelle in my '56, mediocre.

the shafts that enter the side cover of the tranny. I believe these are
the shift forks. Does anyone know
where I can get the seals or bushings??? I tried several local guys and
they said they aren't made anymore. Thanks in Advance.

Dennis Carpenter, now calling himself DC Reproductions, POBox 26398,
Charlotte, NC 704-786-8139, has "Column Shift Linkage to Transmission Seal,
1948-52, $6 , need two. Trouble is he never has them at Carlisle when I'm
there, where he brings lots of stuff. He may have them at his shop, but no
one else seems to. Most catalogs list them, as well as the other worn out
pieces of rubber, etc, for the column shift linkage.

I wish it was true, but only I was given the gift! But they
do enjoy when I tell them about where I've been, things
I've seen, people I thought I was!

Sanity is a state of mind. Insanity is an adventure!

A warning to the weak minded! When traveling the back roads
of sanity, remind yourself. The lizard isn't telling me what
to do, because Lizards can't talk, and if I find myself in a
tower with high powered rifle, it may be a bad thing!

Can anyone tell me where I can get a copy of the engine label for
a74'390. Even a photo copy would suffice.
