Dennis,

Thanks for the info. I haven't given up on him completely yet. He's the
youngest of three and I've found patience usually wins out. He's helped me
with my 48 Mer pu and my 52 Merc pu so he has some idea of the expense and
I've told him plainly we are not mortgaging the farm for his truck. He
subscribes to Hot Rod magazine but I'll check out the others you mentioned.

Thanks again,
Charles

I need some service on my 48 Ford Truck radio, it is always powered on as
the on/off volume switch does turn off anymore. I see a few companies
advertising their servcies, but wondered if anyone has experience with any
repair shops.. I took the control apart myself but could not figure out
why it was not working.

I have used the shop in the north shore area of Massachusetts. Quality
work, sticks to estimates, and delivers on schedule. What more could one
ask for?

I have a '56 longbox that has a steel plate welded in over the original
wood floor. I want it out and I'm not sure how to do this. How far out from
the bed sides should the cut be? I will hire someone to do this. I just
dont want to make a costly error. Thanks for any help.

Charles, it's your (and your son's) project, so you should do whatever you
think you will be happiest with.

I think it's a shame to break apart an original which is in good running
condition. Perhaps you could sell or swap it to someone wanting an original
for a hybrid already in progress. I believe you stated the flathead ran
'like a top'. So many of the people on this site have experience with that
engine, you wouldn't have much trouble solving any problems or questions
about it.

I am customizing my 54, only because the original running gear was not
acceptable for a daily driver. But I am staying all Ford.

Anyway, good luck with the project, and I think you are definitely doing the
right thing, working together on it with your son. Just keep him safety
conscious, both working on the project, and driving it!

I have a 55' Stake body. Someone welded steel over my rotted wooden bed.
Luckily it was only tack welded around the sides. I took my high speed rotary
tool and cut the welds. I then ground down the remaining beads of weld on the
frame. I did not want to use the torch because I was afraid of damaging the
frame.

Hotrodding the 51 F1 is going to be a great experience for the two of you.
I have a 51 with a 302 and C4 and am happy with it. Putting any other motor
than the Flathead in is going to be some work. You will need new front
motor mounts and to channel or replace the rear cross member. This involves
some decision making as if you replace the rear cross member you will have
to remount or relocate the master cylinder.

As a first project I would stick with the flathead for as long as you can to
save money if nothing else. I would be happy to talk to your son about the
pluses/minus of a 302 vs. 350 installation he can email me off list.

Good luck.

I would definately use the Flatmotor for ypu 51 F1 HOTROD ! your son doesn't
know it, but these things are pretty peppy with the right stuff in them, I
know! I;m building one right now (51 F1) I'm using aluminum heads and intake
with 2 deuces and all kinds of neet stuff inside the motor! you can do other
stuff to modernize other than change engines, like Mustang II ifs FORD 9" to
make your ride a little more respectable(comfortable). If you don't have
access to a machine shop or own a lotta tools, DON'T attempt an engine
tranny swap.

Mike,

80 bucks sounds like a good deal for a 4-bbl intake. I paid $140 for mine,
and that was without the carb. Should fit any 272 or 292, I would think. You
might want to look into a 4-bbl camshaft to really take advantage of the
increased CFM. I've never rebuilt a Holley 4-bbl, but I know there are lots
of places to get rebuild kits. Haynes publishes a pretty decent manual on
these carbs...

Subject: radiator for 1958 F100

Dear Truckers,

I'm pretty sure I need a new radiator for my 1958 F100 with 292
engine. It's been losing alot of coolant lately (more than a gallon a day)
and steam was almost pouring out the front last night even after I'd
turned off the engine. I've been looking and can't find one here in town....
