The rubber couplings used for drainage systems may work for you, they
come in various sizes, 2 X 1-1/2 being one of them. It's a neoprene rubber,
hose clamps pre installed on each end. Primary use is to connect cast iron
and other piping systems with some degree of flexibility. Available in most
hardware or building supply stores that carry plumbing supplies. They will
resist gasoline.

I need some assistance from a couple of Forders out there (unless one of you
is fortunate enough to have both trucks mentioned).

I would like to know the distance between the centers of the park lights,
measured at the bottom center of the lens door (frame) where it contacts the
front roll pan, for the following trucks:

1952 F-1
1956 F-00

Thanks in advance for any help.

Mike Bishop

The 52 is 48 inches. Center line of the parking lights to center line.

Subject: bed height

Looking from the rear of my 54, the passenger side of the bed is about
3/4 in. lower than the drivers side. I need to raise the bed. But if I
just raise the bed it will raise the rear fenders which raises the rear
mounts of the running board which will now be at a angle. Do I also
need to raise the cab on the passenger side to level everything up? Has
anyone had this problem? If so how did you solve it, or how would you
solve it?

Thanks
Dave

Anyone not real familiar with Ford Y block manifolds, and planning a 4
barrel swap, should be aware that early manifolds use a smaller base that
will not accept the Holley 4160. If shopping at a swap meet or a friends
house, purchase of a manifold to carburetor gasket will prove a good
investment.

Dave,
Unfortunately to fix the problem, you have to first find the source of the
problem. Everything else is a cosmetic fix, or workaround. The frame could
be tweaked a little, or the springs weak. If you need it to be right, strip
it down, and set it on stands and go through it. If you don't want to do
that, try shims or adding a leaf to the low side. Good luck.
