Subject: Small parts cleaning.

I just wanted to share a technique that I've been using to clean up the
small metal parts (ejm taillights, mirrors, blower body, etc) that are
semi to heavily rusted. I've been submerging them in very accessable
muriatic acid (typical pool acid) for approximate 1 hour then using a
product name rastonil that stops the rusting process. When the parts
are cleaned up they come out like new except slightly grainy which I
smooth out with a sanding disc on the ol' drill. Then when painted with
rustoleum black they are smooth and I'm well assured there is no rust
under the paint waiting to crop up on me for a while.

This is my humble home remedy approach to cleaning my small parts. I
would like to build myself a small sand blast box to try sandblasting
but I know that last time I tried sandblasting with my small compressor
and tote blaster..... well... pfffft.. I could scrape it off faster with
a nail! Anyways... anyone else go through these processes and found
another simple good metal cleaning process?

Your local muffler shop can custom make from aluminized pipe exactly like
old for a very small amount, like I paid $5.00.

I have a 1960 F350 with a 292. Where can I get a new front cross-over pipe?
I hate that arrangement but want to keep it original. John C. Johnson

Subject: Re: Oil leak around the filter...

Geoffrey,

I experienced the same problem when I put my 292 back together. There is a
thin annular gasket behind the oil filter adapter plate. Mine was distorted
when I torqued the center nut/bushing that holds the plate on and that the
filter then screws onto. I ended up draining all the oil, disassembling the
adapter plate and regasketing with slightly thicker material.

Also, if you make a bit of a flat side on the inside edge of the new gasket
(so that it looks kind of like a "D" instead of an "O"), it seems to help
prevent the gasket distortion that caused my leak (and maybe yours)

Subject: Parting out 51-52 Ford

There is a 52 F1 that I might part out. There is no engine, it used to
have the flathead in it. I was just wondering if there was enough
interest for parts to make this worth while. The truck is in Alberta.
