Re: 52 F-1 Steel Fenders
When I did mine I used the original axle location. Scribed it on the frame
before we cut the old spring mount axle out. I also went with ladder bars
but used coil overs. I can make some measurements tonite and let you know
tomorrow. If you want I can send some pics of mine offlist..

Hi Mike, nice to know a fellow detroiter is a FTE member in good standing
A surefire way to center your axle on the frame is to drop a plumb bob down
from the hole made for your original axle bumpers, should be dead center.

My 52 F-3 flatty V-8 had light green (under some blue a previous rebuilder
painted). The weird thing is that on the back of the engine behind the
flywheel, it was red. Call it a calico motor if you like, but it looked like
the light green was the color of the rest of the engine.

Removed the clutch that wouldn't release and found something odd. The pressure plate fingers are rubbing on the disk hub when the peddle is depressed. Checked orientation, can't be backwards, hub won't allow disk to go the other way. Pressure plate says "Model 9 1/2 CF", is this the proper clutch for a '50 F-1 239 3-speed trans on the floor? My red book says 10 or 11 in were only options. This is the clutch that came with my basket-case truck. Everything bolted up perfectly, so I didn't suspect it at the time. Turns out to be a major boo-boo on my part, had to miss my exhaust system appointment because I couldn't drive the truck onto the lift.

Subject: power steering?
I am new to the list so I will give a brief introduction. My name is
Chris Chambers and I am from TN. I own a sign shop specializing in
vinyl graphics. For some time now I have been trying to complete a
panel truck to advertise the business with and make deliveries. Only a
Ford will do, I am a Ford man through and through. Anyway, I originally
started on a 40 model but found a 60 model and traded for it. At the
time it was running and driving. But it was set on a station wagon
frame and the wheelbase was not correct. I have since found a 59 pickup
with a 289 and automatic that I now have stripped down to the frame and
am about to set the panel body on it. Now for my question, The front
suspension is fine by me for the time being although I have had people
say that thye are unsafe. It seems to handle fine but I really would
like to add powers steering and a tilt wheel. While I have it apart
would be the best time to do it. What is the most economical way to do
this? I recently read an article about a Chevy conversion using later
model pump and brakets on a 50's model truck. Is this possible on an
old Ford truck. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Subject: Chassis parts
For some time now I have been toying with the idea of stretching my
'56 and making an extra cab out of it.
I have obtained a 3/4 ton rolling frame and am thinking about
cutting a section out of the frame rails to use as a spacer to lengthen
my existing frame.
I have a set of 4, stock 16" split rim wheels, the front and rear
axle, (haven't checked the ratio) and a pretty decent pair of running
boards (the long ones) that I am not going to be using. There is also
the clutch and brake pedal assy. with master cylinder available. If any
one is interested in any of these parts, let me know.
