Del and Glenn,
Thanks guys for the information. I'm TOTALLY mechanically
challenged!! I've actually been trying to sell my old truck, but
haven't had any serious inquiries, so I just decided to keep her and see
what I could do. She's in good shape, justs need some help here and
there. Heck, I'm only 35 and I need help here and there!! Again, thanks
fellas!!

Hi ya'll,
My '57 F-250 DUALLY has a 4:56 rear axle and I'd sure like to
change the ratio to get more hiway speed. I think it can be done by
just changing the ring and pinion gear. Trouble is....it has a 12 bolt ringear
and I can't find one like it. I think it is a Rockwell rearend.
I been thinking about putting 9:00 X 16 tires on it That would help some
Anybody familiar with this rear axle? It's got a BIG U-joint One cross is big
and the other is regular size

thanks ya'll

You can go to all that trouble or just simply go to NAPA and buy an Echlin
IR9 gage cluster voltage reducer. It is the same as the one Ford uses. It is
about $18.00 and works quite well. I have one in my 52 F-1 and it works
fine.

Subject: ampere guage and gauge trim

Hi Gang. Got my guages to work finally except for the ampere gauge. The 52
has no wire connections. It has a metal ring in the back where the wire
simply passes through it. My book says it works off the magnetic field from
the wire. Any suggestions? How do you test this thing?
Also, I would like to replace the chrome trim rings around my gauges. Old
ones are rusty and pitted. Is there anyone that sells new rings?

Put a wire through the loop, connect it to something (don't just short the
two battery terminals together -- run it through a test lamp), and the
needle should move. A larger lamp (like a headlight) will draw more current
and make the needle move more.

Are you using a completely stock wiring set up? I know the stock wiring for
a 35 puts the ammeter between the generator cutout and the fuse block so it
wouldn't measure current going to the starter motor, but does measure
current used to feed the headlights. If you did something like put in a one
wire alternator connected directly to the battery, and picked up your main
electrical feed from the battery, the ammeter will show the current used by
the electrical system, not the battery charging rate from the alternator.

Paul,
Your amp gauge will read backwards. You need to disconnect the wire passing
through the metal ring, pass it through from the opposite direction, and
reconect it.

My vacuum wiper motor has 2 fittings, one on the driver's side, and the other on the pass. Which one gets the vacuum line? Is the other a vent? Thanks for your help.

Tried to get to it but it is unreachable. How do these outfits work? Has
anybody had any experience with one? I'm starting another project and may
be in need.
