Paul,
Of course I can't find my book on steering wheel restoration now. But I
remember them saying to use automotive paint and not spray cans. For a primer
they used one of the high build polyester primers but this was so you could
cover the sanding marks from repairing the cracks so any auto primer
compatalble with your paint is probably good.
Also for everybody info I was looking in one of my books and it list all the
paint used from 40 to 66 by year. It doesn't list the paint number. But if
you know what color your truck is at least you can get the ford name for it.
It also list what color the wheels and bumper was. So if anyone wants to know
their color name drop me a line on the list.

Not really the same topic, but close. At my truck club meeting last night, one
of the members said he is looking for a 1950 passenger car wheel, the
four-spoke, (I think) limited edition one with a fancy "F" in the center. He is
willing to pay $500. for a good one. If any of you can find one let me know.
Thanks.

Dennis,

I followed the advice of my rod shop and went with a
posi unit from Auburn Gear and 3.25 gears. The unit is
quiet and works fine. I am running a 400 w/4V
Cleveland heads, cam, headers, CD ignition, and 750
CFM Carter carb. I also use a C6 w/ shift kit. My only
complaint is that when I jump on it, the engine starts
to build power. When it gets into its power range,
>2500 RPM, the tires break loose. Since the rear is
locked, both come loose and the truck tries to get
sideways. I have to back off to get it straight again.

Help again please. Some one sent me a diagram of how he wired his 50
truck. I was only able to open one of the attachments out of the two.
I also lost his address so I could not reply directly to him. I really
appreciate all of the help, this is a great discussion list and it has
been very helpful. Thanks so much for all of the help nad if the guy
that sent the diagram please get back with me and help me with the other
attachment.

Bob, I have a '48 F-1 that looks like it was a dark green originally, but
someone painted over it in that ever popular light mint green-almost
white color. Actually it is starting to grow on me (this is Washington,
things do that up here...). Can you tell me what colors the '48 F-1s
came in and what that whitish green color is called? Thanks.
