Fran,
I have a 5 lug bud wheel and I'm using a 9x22.5 tubeless. Big babies. Of
course it wont fit in the garage w/o taking the front wheels off and using
skates. I hear the "bud" wheel was only used in 56. I don't know this for
sure though. Thanks for the interest.

Subject: Tailgate letters

I was going to buy the stick-on letters sold in the truck catalogs but
didn't like the color choices.My body man said he could paint them. We
painted them the same color as my grille, a cream or beige color. It
looks real nice. I also painted the back of my chrome K-Mart brand side
view mirrors the same color. You see, I am not going to put those cute
small chrome mirrors they sell in the catalogs which they try to tell
you they are original on my "farm truck". Maybe they are original to
something but not to '53-56!! I have never seen any on any truck in any
junk yard or any vintage photo.
Just my humble opinion, Abe '54 F-100

Subject: Replacement radiator question

I'm putting a 90 5.8L (351W) with a C6 in my 55 F100. Does anyone have a
suggestion of a radiator that I can use? I'd prefer to save a few bucks and
not have to spend 500 on a new one.

Thanks,

Ken Kitchen

Subject: transmission mount

Removing the old tranny from my 51 f-1 to install a
new 5 speed overdrive. As I look I am becoming
concerned at the stress placed on the 4 bolts that
hold the transmission on.

I am not sure this aluminum transmission is designed
to carry
so much weight, with an engine that is mounted on the
front corners!!

Has anyone installed a rear engine support when
upgrading to a new auto or manual tranny? Is it
neccessary, or am I just a worry wart?

Dennis

Date: Mon, 10 Apr 2000 09:01:50 -0700

I am considering converting to an electronic distributor on the 85 302 I
have in my 51 F1. To make things easier when I installed the motor I put in
the 71 single point vacuum advance distributor.

My thinking is that I will be better off in the long run with the 85
electronic distributor. I have the distributor but don't have any of the
wiring etc.

Has anyone done this. The truck has already been converted to 12 volt.

Ed, look for the book "How to Restore Your Ford Pickup" by Tom Brownell.
He covers this subject plus a lot of other aspects about truck
restoration.

Would someone please help me with a dimension I need for a design project
I'm working on. I need the center-to-center distance between the park lights
on a '53-'56 F-100?

When I asked last week for the similar dimensions on '51-'52 F-1 and '53-'56
F-100 the F-1 guys came through in a flash. Thanks--your response is much
appreciated.

I know it doesn't sound terribly important, but it could save me a two-hour
trip down off the mountain and back, and enable me to have my 'ducks in a
row' when I present my story.

If there's an F-100 person out there who can help I'll be grateful.

Thanks

Mike

Subject: straight 6 manifold

Forwarded for a friend

"I have a 1952 Ford F-1 and I am asking you if you have a part or parts
for it. I have a 215 overhead straight six in my truck and I need a
manifold for this motor. I am wondering if you have a manifold for
this motor. I saw that you had some old trucks like this on your
website and are hoping you will have the part. The 215 was also in 53
trucks, but don't know what else."

I don't know if it's intake or exhaust though but either would be good.
Thanks
Scott

I am sure glad this subject has come up... I hope lots of info comes out
on it. I have my own '49 F-1 6 volt system that I'm looking for a good
remedy to work 12 volt. I'll save all this info for when I do my own.

Subject: Two 50 F-1's for sale
Date: Tue, 11 Apr 2000 16:18:59 +0200

Hello again,

I got a letter from a guy who visited my homepage. He asked me for a good website to sell two 50 F-1's. I have looked at som of the photos and they are rough but for someone living close to them it might be valuable.
Here's a quote from the letter:

""Thanks for the quick response. By all means please forward my web address to
anyone you might think is interested.
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.freeyellow.com/members8/fordparts/index.html I really have no
idea how much to ask for any of these parts, they belong to the pastor of our
church and he asked me to see what I could do; so far, not much. Thanks for
your quick response.

Ray""

End of quote.

The snow is gone now and I took Oswald and my daughter to the freeway.
I really enjoy sitting high above the other cars, watching the reactions.
Especially the cars where the woman is driving, the baby in the other front seat and they guy sitting in the back seat. He is talking, man his lips are moving fast watching Oswald and she doesn't understand what's so special with an old pickup. On pickups you don't have a back seat where you can be put away by the ol' lady. I know it and the other guy just discovered that.
You can see Oswald on page: http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.rarite.com/CARS.htm

Far away greetings from Sweden

Good Luck!
