Hello, Michael,
I also have a 46 1/2 ton and also am just starting a rebuild. I bought it 2
years ago from a guy on a ranch outside of Abilene (I'm in Texas) who
bought it at a public school fund raising auction in San Antonio. A woman
donated to the school, I think it had been her husband's, and the auto shop
kids cleaned it up some and painted it. It sat in the Abilene guy's car
shed for a couple of years when I came along, bought it and it has been up
on jack stands in my drive way since then. I tried to start it a couple of
years back but the gas was ancient and the tank had too much flaked off
varnish and gunk to put new gas in, so I put it up for another day. That
day has arrived. I've rehabed the tank (took it to a Gas Tank Renu in
Houston who did a fine job), ordered new tank mounting bolts, sending unit,
gas lines, fuel pump and carburetor rebuild kits. Once the fuel system is
ok, I'll drain the oil, clean up the pan, install a new filter, put in new
points & plugs, check the timing and see if I can fire it up. It hasn't run
in at least 4 years but I've been squirting marine engine fogging oil in
the plug holes on a periodic basis and turning it by hand just to try and
keep it loose. After it's running, I'll replace the exhaust system,
probably with headers and Smithy's, do a brake job, and take care of
anything else I need to pass a safety inspection so I can get it
registered. At this point I'm not interested in an extensive restoration, I
just need a driveable funky truck to haul stuff in. I have other truck
projects that eventually will assume the function of the Ford and then I
might do a real restoration. Big plans but little money and not enough
time. I hope you're having as much fun with your 46 as I am with mine.

Subject: Electric wiper motor connections

A fellow gave me an inexpensive 12v electric wiper motor that I intend in
installing in my 46 1/2 ton until I get around to building a good dual
electric system. This is temporary but it will allow me to get the truck
through a safety inspection. No instruction came with the motor and my
question is, how do I hook it up? There are 3 terminals marked +, -, S.
What goes where? I assume one goes to ground and one to a switch. The truck
has been converted to 12v negative ground. Any ideas?

Your guess sounds correct. The reason why there would be three terminals
instead of two is so that when the switch is off, there's power to park the
wiper blades.

I admire the sentiment. Some people say it takes a real man to cut up a
truck (chop and channel the body), but it takes a different sort of man to
dare to put a dump sticker on it.
