Subject: Towing "hitch"
I am redoing the bed and had "cleaned up" the rear bumper and was planning
on reinstalling it. Problem??: towing a trailer. Have any of you welded
on one of those under the chassis hitch packages(where you can slide out
the ball assembly) I want to keep the same clean lines, but really need to
tow a trailer so I don't mess up MY NEW BED. Thanks Ken

I have a 49 F1 and I want to replace the rubber around the cowl vent. Anyone
know the easy way to do this? Does everything have to come out?
If so, how? Appreciate your help.

Subject: springs and shocks
I have been reading the thread about the uneven bed. I have the same
problem. I presume my springs are bad as they have not been touched in
the last 21 years (and probably not before that). How do I know if they
need re-arched .... or replaced? I assume my shocks are bad. What will
new shocks do to the truck height? to the ride? in conjunction with new
I am still enjoying the great ride I now have with my new radials. I
can't believe how much better the ride would be with new shocks and
springs. My next project is to fix the seat snubbers below the driver's
seat to take the shock out of the bad bumps!!!!
Thanks, Abe '54 F-100

Shocks do nothing for ride height. They only "dampen" the up and down
ment so you dont bounce forever. The springs and related hardware do
support of the vehicle and it's ride. Don't forget to get grease into
all the pins
in shacles and front pivots and the leaves need to "slide" against
Many old springs don't slide and are broken or "froze" thusly sagging
moving over bumps. "G"

NAC, It's the bellhousing and flywheel/clutch that determine what
will fit. Assuming you have the frame mount bellhousing for a 292
(hard to find),
any manual should bolt up. Those old "long-nose" starters had several
drives for different flywheels and applications. The number of teeth
of each has
to be matched. That may be grinding problem. Repair Manuals tell what
are needed to match-up, but you have different mix years so have to
on that one. I would think 55 up man. would be best to look at for
54 is odd one of bunch even tho it's a Y-block. Count the teeth on
starter drive and call Sacremento Ford in CA for help on match.
I am having trouble locating the stove bolts that mount the radiator to
the frame of a 1950 F1 Ford Truck. I have been to Sac Vintage, Dennis
Carpenter and others, I can only find the pad. Has anyone solved this
Check MAC'S Antique Auto parts. I just ordered a kit for my 39 from them.
I don't have the catalog for the 50, but I'd bet they have it.
