A friend has a 50 1/2 ton which does not want to shift into the proper
gears on the shift column. When driving he has to open the hood to
level out the linkage so that the gear-shift lever can be moved. Any
ideas on what he can do or what parts I can get to fixd this slight

To chris/Jennifer,
Sounds like you are using a Delco alternator. I
solved the problem of the engine continuning to run
with the key switch turned off by adding a diode in
the White wire from the two-connector plug from the
alternator. I used a 6 amp Radio Shack diode
installed so current could enter the alternator
through the white wire, but not out of the
alternator(point of the diode away from alternator).
The problem is that the alternator will backfeed power
to the ignition system through the white wire. Hope
this helps. I am sure you will get lots of other
fixes also. Let us know how it worked out.

Hi All

our 51 f-6 (stock 6v flathead) starts and runs great
if you get it up to operating temperature on a hot day it cranks fine but
will not start if you shut off & let it sit for very long (although you
could shut it off & restart it immediately) - once it cools down a bit it
fires right up again

kind of puzzled at is has only happened a few times in the last 3 years but
seems to be much more frequent now

any suggestions as to how to minimize or eliminate the problem would be

Would a guy be able to swap a 52 car flathead into a 52 truck? Are the
engines the same or not? Main question is are the fuel pumps
