I bought the repos years ago for my 48, , they look good but if my memory
serves me right, the originals had the FORD script painted, but the
repos do not. I did no paint mine. If you use late 50's ford 15" truck
rims the hub caps fit right on over the three tabs on the rim. I also use
the chrome beauty rims.

<< Hello from Sweden

I have been working on my 50 F-1 today, ( a couple of degrees below zero) >>

Makes me feel bad that I won't go into my garage and work on my 57 if it is
below 50!

The catalog is called "Ford Racing Performance Parts (FRPP) and cost $5.00
made payable to Ford. The hot line phone number is 1-810-468-1356. If you are
building a 5.0 HO pick up the April issue of Mustang 5.0 magazine, it has an
article about a 600 horse power 302 that is street drivable. I am following
the article with a few exceptions, mainly the blower, and building that
engine. I have access to a dyno and if interested I will post the HP when I
finish. It should take me about a month to finish.

Hello Tom,

The truck was originally positive ground and thus the starter button is a little strange.
The button has one wire that connected the metal dash (pos battery) to the starter solenoid.
The solenoid then connected the negative side of the battery to the starter when the button was pressed.

You can use the original starter button in a negative ground system by adding an additional relay.
You can pick up any 12 volt relay at your local electronics shop.
We would use Radio Shack here in the states.
Connect +12 to one side of it's coil and use the starter button to ground it.
Use the relay contacts to apply positive voltage to your solenoid.

Hope this helps

Subject: Re: 4 Barrel Carb for 292

Mike,

I recently retrofitted a 4-bbl. manifold to my 292 and bought a new holley
650 cfm for it. Used to be you could get 4bbl and six-pack manifolds by
Offenhauser. To my knowledge, nobody is making these intakes for Y-blocks
anymore. Leastways, I couldn't find one when I was in the market.

So I bought a used one from John Asaro at Street Dreams Automotive, (535
Berwyn, Dearborn Heights Mich 48127 (313)565-1106). It cost $140 plus
shipping. A brand new carb set me back about $220. I believe that a 450 CFM
would actually be big enough, but the 650's are cheaper and easier to find.
If you're switching from a 2-bbl setup as I did, you'll need to change your
linkage as well...

The 650 CFM sounds great, how did you retrofit it? What type of adapter
plate did you use?
I currently have the 4 barrel that needs work and I thought changing it out
to a new one would work better.

Friends,
I am complete except for the front fenders. Called Fairlane and found a 5
week waiting list along with the premium price. Does anyone have an
alternate source? I need the upper and lower fenders for my '50 F-1.
Thanks.

Hello, need more help from you guys. Where can I find the number for
Eastwood Company. They sell paint for the manifold. Also where is the best
place to buy waterpumps and things for engine from. I have a 1948 F-1 I'm
having redone.
All help will be deeply appreciated. Thanks Steve

Bigger is not better. If the engine is stock, it will only use about
250 cfm, if that, at 5500 rpm. How many of you guys drive a Y block at 5
grand? The most economical and street worthy carb easily available for
this application is a vacuum secondary 600 Holley 4160 (0-1850). If the
motor is modified with a cam and headers, you might get away with
mechanical secondaries (Holley 4150). Don't try mechanical secondaries
on a carb this big on a engine this small unless you like pain and
embarrassment. The 4160 bolts on a 4 BBL manifold in the stock location
with stock linkage. Check for throttle plate interference with the
manifold bores, you may need to use a spacer.
On my 292 I've long used a 500 CFM Holley two barrel, it runs as good
or better than the 4 barrel I used to have, and fits like stock. 2300
series Holley, Model 0-4412. Check it out. Summitracing.com or Jegs.com.

Thank you Fred, I'll try the 600 Holley 4160, sounds like that is what
