ben, did you find an old aftermarket 4v for that y block, or a 57 312 cast
iron intake?

Subject: '60 15" Rims on '49 front swap

I have a question for you '48-50 aficionados. I may be going across
state to pick up a '49 F-1 and it needs tires to tow it. I have a '60
F100 that I could take the front tires off to bring with me to swap with
the '49 so that I can tow it. Am I within acceptable perameters? Fill
me in!

Subject: ADMIN: Message boards have been upgraded.

The message board software has been upgraded. Check it
out! It has many new features, including the ability
to integrate with mailing lists, rating topics, email
topics to a friend, sorting, printer friendly output
and more.

Once I figure out how to guard email addresses, the
mailing lists will cross-post to the message boards
and visa-versa. Azie will finally have access to the
web site, though in an indirect way!

PS - I'm still working on web mail, I found a bug in
the setup that will be addressed this weekend.

I'm putting my gas tank under the bed and want to use the "Cool-Cap."
However, the cap "bung" is 1 1/2 " diameter. The tank "bung" is 2" dia.
If that's not enough, I've got to make this "reduction" in about 4" of
space between the bottom of the bed and the top of the tank. Anybody got
any ideas?

Ray,

I sawed off about half the bung from the cool cap, and used a rubber
adapter-reducer found in the plumbing department of home depot.

I need serious help installing a new wire harness on a 52 F4. Pictures would
be great or a diagram that is more detailed then the one I have. Where can I
find these? Many thanks.

NA; Wiring is real simple on these
old Fords. If you still have old
harness, remove
it whole and carefully cut the
cover and use new wires copied off
the old harness.
Put on same type connectors, use
same or similar colors, do one at a
time then,
wire-tie several places or could
rewrap with tape and re-install.
There is a good
wire diagram in early Ford truck
shop manuals or the FTE site is
supposed to
have them on web, haven't looked
myself. Check library for shop
manual if you
don't have or order from FTE site
or Faxon Lit. or ...............
