Subject: heater wire question

FTE'ers:
I have a two questions for the stock truck owners '53-'55. I got my
heater blower motor working. The brushes were worn. Just put small
wedges behind them to push them closer to the armature. The blower works
fine, blows more air than I remember before.
#1: the fan rattles when running. Is it the motor or is the fan loose?
I must decide to either live with it or take it out again and
troubleshoot.
#2: Where do the two wires from the switch go through the firewall? I
know I should have taken pictures before I ripped it out , but.... This
is a recirculating heater. Right now I have the wires going through the
2 holes above the heater motor. There were 2 rubber plugs in these so I
know that isn't right. I know the wire doesn't go through the same hole
as the blower motor. At this time I put in a new under dash pad (ABS
plastic) so maybe the wire hole is now covered, but I could cut another
hole in the pad. Drawings in the shop manual are inconclusive. Help here
would be appreciated.
Thanks, Abe '54 F-100

Subject: 52 steering column rebuild: Assembly question

Hey all,

I've modified my stock column and added a lower bracket to allow for "DD"
u-joints. Since this project is a slow mover, I've had this apart for some
time. When I took it apart originally, the upper bearings etc, were cookies.
I ordered a new upper bearing, sleeve, and spring. But when I try to press
the stock column tube over the whole assembly, it doesn't go. Am I right in
assuming the ID of the column tube is supposed to fit snug and seat over the
upper bearing and the butt end of the tube seats up under the steering wheel
groove? If anyone can give me assy order for the stock upper column, I'll
check it against what I have. Doesn't seem like four parts can have that
many alternatives!!!

Stumped in Simpli City. Thanks in advance.

Subject: Ride height

I hope some of you can help me. I'm trying to get an idea of what the average
total height for a 48-52 ford F-1 is. I made some changes to mine and the top
of the cab is now sixty-seven inches off the ground. I placed a six foot
straight edge on the top of the cab and measured to the ground. Thanks for
any info you can give.

Tom

No great news on finding frames here. I could not find them eitherBut. I had the same problem where my frames were rusty and the pivot shaft was rusted/broke off both of mine.

They made these frames in both steel and Stainless Steel. If you find yourself a used set of the stainless ones they will be good rustwise, even if the truck is submersed in a swamp. I had to TIG weld the posts back together. It worked fine and they were as good as new with new glass and rubber added.

Hi,
I'm about to rebuild the 292 in my '59F-100.....but before I do
has anyone had success with any 292 engine swaps? Maybe
I could install 289 or 302 or 360???? Plus any advice on the 292
rebuild would be appreciated.
thanks,
Crutch 59F-100 stepside Atlanta

Went to the building to get the photos of the heater wire run,
can not get in. They plowed up the doorway! Will try again
this afternoon. Does not look like they finished.

Abe, I'm not familiar with your truck, but have done older motors before.
I'ld bet the fan was bent slightly in handling or body of heater is moved
slightly
causing fan to hit some metal in case. Maybe it hits a screw if you changed
them. The shaft may move in or out when motor starts and cause worse noise.
On wiring: Aren't all wires INSIDE the cab? Would think power wire runs
off Ignition switch, thru heater switch, then to motor. Could be wrong tho!
