Hunter,

I think I have some originals that I took off my 55. I don't know if they
work. I never had them hooked up. I'll take a look and let you know.
I work down in the city(Tues-Thurs) so if you want them maybe you can pick
them up.

Dennis

Subject: emergency brake

I am at the stage of putting the emergency brake on my truck. When I
started there wasn't one. The only part that I have is the stock handle
on my 54. What have people done to replace or make an emergency braking
system?? I know there are some aftermarket stuff but unless it's the
same price or cheaper I see no reason not to use what is the most
common? I have a nine inch ford rear end with disk brakes but I don't
know what year the rear end is. Any thoughts??

Dennis,

Do you have a dual master cylinder? It is possible
that you have a hydraulic problem in your front disc
setup and the proportioning valve switches to rear
only. Pumping the brakes sets it right again. Normally
there is a light to tell you when this occurs. You
should hook up a light to your proportioning valve and
see if it comes on when you are having trouble.

Hi all -

It took me a bit longer than I intended, but I got the
pictures of the '84 F6000 CrewCab on my website.
If you are looking for a rig for pulling a trailer, this
is it. It's not mine, just a very cool Ford CrewCab that
needs to go to a good home.

I'm pursuing the idea of having my CrewCab restored.
At the same time I am planning on spending MY time
restoring another (non-Ford, sorry) vehicle with my
son. He's more interested in the 'other' vehicle.

Anyone have any recommendations or places to avoid
in the Sacramento area? I live in Grass Valley, so
anything within a 100 miles or so would be acceptable.

By the time I take enough stuff off to 'fix' a few
items. I'm close enough to a shell to go all the way.
This truck is unique enough to treat to a restore.

I'm not looking to have it done immediately, but
I need to do my homework on shops before I start
driving around and getting estimates.

Recommendations of sequencing of stuff like, engine,
body, interior, electrical, would be appreciated.
Eventually a wish list will be generated and be
foisted upon you all!

Dan,
Yes I do have a dual master cylinder and I didn't have a problem until I put
this one on.

Thanks for the help. I'll check it out.
Dennis
